The Poor Girl From Sarawak

A few weeks ago a girl from Sarawak study in UMS staying King Fisher was raped and beaten by two people who dragged her into a car and drove to Tambunan, and within 10 hours terrible things happen to her.

After police saved her from a car over topped in Tambunan and arrest the two criminal and send her to Keningau hospital and later on sentenced the two criminals in jail but story about the girl are never heard of, what happen to her and no body even care.

As I heard from people in Keningau, she was transferred to Bukit Padang Mental Illness Hospital because since the rescue she still cannot speak and I think she in deep depression. I hope media can play some role on this, as least show our Sabahan kindness to let people know what happen to her instead of cutting the news off.

What I want to say is the danger awareness of the people should improved, as I remember when I travelled in Penang in very young age, a friend of my sensed two robbers street away when we walked along the street in Butter Worth and avoided them by walking toward a oppose direction.

As Young guys now like walking and using hand phone it is giving opportunity to criminal to act. And personal safety awareness should taught in the school instead of learning them in the hard way, in the jungle of civilisation.

Sabah, The State of Tolerance

I born in Sabah and live in Sabah and here is my home and I love this place as it give so many memories back from childhood, as I grown up and politician come and go but they not taken away the true spirit of Sabahan.

In west Malaysia, politicians still fighting with each other for the benefit of their races and suffered from March 8 general election still not recover but in Sabah we already facing many time the change of government, from USNO to BERJAYA to PBS and now back to sharing of power.

Sabahan will not afraid of change of government, if any Members of Parliment jump ship in Malaysia Day to opposition party, Sabahan will face it steady and benefit from the change as current state government is full of bad publicities.

The reason is, Sabahan put race aside when decide political issues, and we don't has religious problem as in West Malaysia, here we can share table with muslim in a coffee shop who sale halal and non halal foods. And in many family is Sabah, family members with different religion living together.

Politicians from West Malaysia should come and long stay in family in Sabah to feel the spirit of tolerence here.
