When it comes to the subject of my own race, I’m 50/50. I love my culture and traditions, but not everything about it.
The state of the generation of this race right now is actually pretty embarrassing. Based on personal experience, I cringe at the way Malay teenagers act nowadays. Yeah, we’re known for the terms ‘lepak‘ & ‘hidup mesti kena chill’. But guess what? Having that constant mindset is not helping our community to prosper. It’s just another excuse for being lazy and not ambitious enough to push yourself forward, even when you know you have the ability to do so.
Just look at most of the youths these days. Many of them idle their time away sitting at void decks, smoking their lungs out and what not, engaging in empty conversations. Lepak je lah yang korang tahu.
