He didn't even say sorry - A Jinjang Joe he is!!

I  really don't know to what direction Malaysian going to be in the coming years. Whether we all may continue to care for each other like our grandparents and parents during the 60's,70's and 80's. Though with a bit of hiccup in 1969, the barometer of concern, manners, respect to the elders and upholding racial harmony stood steadfastly then.
Nowadays, Malaysian within the "Kurang Ajar" category is growing. This kind of social relationship decadent is not an isolated issue,not even skewed to specific or typical embodiment of race deficient.
I don't know, maybe the growing kiasu environment which are now taking a more defining impact in this so call "the soon to be high income nation with her new big headed citizen living the new found kiasu lifestyle".

Have space will squeeze, if not we miss..

My grandfather own this space?  So What..Kiasu maa...
Again, I don't know, really, despite the effort to create a more caring society by the government and the non-government organization. Is it going to happen? Or just a mere mocking of another new lifestyle in Malaysia today.
Here and until now, we all mourned to the passing away of Sir Ong.
This is what I have to say to my fellow Malaysian especially to those who just get to drive one. The car is symbolic in many ways, regardless of its owner's perception of it. Often it is the individual's second most valuable belonging.  Probably an important part of the owner's livelihood. Often his main access to freedom and almost invariably, a "statement of self."
The size, brand and model, shape, power, color, and value may all be used by the owner as an expression of how he sees himself and how he wants others to see him. Every time the car is used its value and meaning is to some extent controlled and obstructed by forces beyond the driver's control, and it is placed at an unknown risk to other road users even how good is your car safety or emergency features.
 It is this "egoic" aspect of driving which is perhaps more than anything else responsible for the style of driving and its unique ability to provoke emotion.Drivers are not ranked in terms of skill and ability, individuals either pass their driving test and are able to drive or fail and are not, and yet most people would agree that some full license holders are unfit to drive.
So, nobody stop you from driving what you like, anything, even if the law allows it, you may land your executive jet on the four lanes highway of PLUS.
But, one thing you need not to be so kiasu and " less cultured" or bluntly "kurang ajar". I strongly suggest the lawmakers to re-evaluate the Road and Traffic Ordinance immediately. The penalty for "kiasu driving is no more relevance in this new found kiasu society".  For negligence and reckless driving which cause death to others, guilty, minimum penalty  10 years imprisonment + fine and revoking driving license not relevant. Let them be kiasu in their own prison cell.
