Ramlah Jalee: being so close to I remember our Indian growing neighbours. up in We Teluk would Intan cook and for them during during Raya. Deepavali We ate together and they and would even do dropped the same in on for each us other at any time. There was no barrier and we never felt like outsiders.
Freda Ng: We can have those good old days back. Let’s start with ‘me’, the person you see when you look in the mirror. Let it be ‘us’ who put into practice positive habits and actions. Let us mingle. Let us live in harmony. Let us stop pointing fingers.
Joshua Arulselvan: For the most part, I think that we’re doing okay. Sure, every now and then there would be worms crawling out of the woodwork with their divisive statements and actions — these are the things we just have to learn to ignore and look past.
Jacky Chan: My best buddy when I was in Standard Three was a Malay boy. After school, I never failed to go to his house to play. When he had to attend evening classes, I’d wait for him in the mosque compound. There was no issue at all, unlike now.
Jalil Said: Why call those the good old days? We are still alive and we can still have those good old days everyday if we want to. My school friends and I still get together. We wish each other well and visit one another every festive season. Come on, Malaysians. It’s up to us to create the same sense of unity and harmony as before.
