Ayah

轉載:

A man came home from work and his children ran to him and called out ‘Ayah! Ayah!’.

His neighbor got very upset and said to him, “Can you please tell your children not to call you ‘Ayah’?”

The man asked, “Why?”

The neighbor retorted, “Because my children call me ’Ayah’ too. They might get confused and mistake you to be their father.”

Then the man told his neighbour, "are you not ashamed to say that your children do not know who is their 'Ayah'. So you are saying by using the word 'Ayah', your children will call me ayah too without knowing who their father is?"

The neighbour said "yes, only I should use the word 'Ayah'."

The man said, "then there is something wrong in what you are teaching your children. They are not sure and do not know who is their 'Ayah' "

this only happen in malaysia, cause we really Can. (Boleh)
But from my observation, most of the malay (from small village) will still vote for BN, because they got a lots of "helps" in terms of loans & lands from gov, and Parkatan Rakyat also admit that they are not confidence to get Malay's votes, especially non-town Malay.

i know, but most of the non-town malay only care about wat they get from gov. the traditional media was controlled by gov, and they even wan to control online media, haiz, bodoh punya gov.

Malay as well as orang asli (the real bumiputra)have been fooled by BN since the independence. What if BN gov is running low of $$$ and other resources, do you think those "hardcore" BN supporters would still vote for BN? I doubt that.....

i know gov is financially tight now, and their policy now is to get money from biz world & employment (from city resident), thus, they reduce the subsidizes of petrol & apply GST, but such policy actually does not affect a lots to the malay/ bumi that stay far away from materialistic world. and they still 'support'/ 'subsidies' to the non-city malay. In my village, gov even give them land, bulls, money and build all the infrastructure. i think BN gov already make up their mind to 讨好 them get another 5 years. we, as urban citizen had been sacrified.
