Tali Tenang (post-mortem)

January 24, 2010

I must admit, I have been angry with any other current issues going on in Malaysia. But someone came up to me and said, ” why don’t you do something about it rather than venting about how angry you are? Why don’t you look at yourself first before you talk about others?”. These words are probably harsh and straight forward, but they really make sense if you really think about it.

We have been ranting and blogging about how shitty the country has been. Whether or not we have affective politicians or government but have we actually done anything at all?

Being a part of RA and co-organizing it with the team has taught me how we can show others what we have always wanted for this country and it  doesn’t have to be writing or talking about it, but to have actions. These actions DO NOT have to be violence or strikes. It can be as simple as walking down the town with a long rope with Malaysian flags and show how positively inviting it can turn out to be.

For those who came and participated in Tali Tenang;be it as crews, photographers, videographers or parcitipants, I hope everyone learned how awesome it is to realize how we can stick together to show how calm we are and how much we care about being in a peaceful, wonderful Malaysia.

More to come from RA, Malaysia!
