The new Malaysia

Alhamdullillah.... yesterday (Wednesday - 9/5/2018) was a historic day for Malaysia. Thousands of malaysians went out early in the morning, braving long queues in the hot Malaysian sun, to cast their votes... and in doing so, cast out Barisan Nasional and installed Pakatan Harapan as the ruling party of Malaysia. Barisan Nasional who have been ruling over Malaysia ever since its' independence until yesterday. Today, insyaAllah, Tun Mahathir will be sworn in as the 7th Prime Minister of Malaysia. The man who rules over Malaysia for most of my life as the 4th Prime Minister will once again take over the mantel of power. InsyaAllah to do good and make amends with regards to all the bad things and precedence he has done before. The story arc of him and the champion of the people (Anwar Ibrahim) has been long and worthy of a it's own trilogy. Hopefully now we can finally see its' grand conclusion where the truth is finally revealed, justice is finally served, and the people of Malaysia can finally hold their heads up high and be proud of their leaders.

Me myself... I am hopeful. With the dawn of a new era, where the people of Malaysia is woke and aware, we could be seeing a whole new chapter in the lives of ordinary Malaysians. We have changed something that was before this seems unchangeable, maybe after this we could even change ourselves. To be better citizens of the world and ultimately make it a better place.

As for everything else... there is a time and place for it...

Thank you fellow Malaysians who voted for change... we have done it.
But our journey does not end here. We have to remain vigilant and make sure what happened to Barisan Nasional does not happen to Pakatan Harapan. Do not raise our leaders to the point where we cannot question them and they do as they please. We must hold them accountable for their actions and promises. And more importantly, that they always remain just and fair to all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion, wealth or status. And that once they do not deliver, we change them again. To serve the people.

To the future....

Haiya ala Solah
