Dear Singapore, as you celebrate your annual “We’re so glad we’re not part of Malaysia” celebration, let’s see what you can be thankful for.
If you were part of Malaysia your 100 dollars will be in ringgit and would have shrunk to a third of its value to $35.45.
Your national airline SIA is world renowned and rated for many years as #1 in the world as compared to our MAS which happens to be bankrupt.
Your police and government pride itself as being corruption free, whereas our Malaysian Anti-Corruption officers have no recourse but to pray to Allah to protect them from the police.
As you watch the fireworks tonight let every spark represent one of the 2.6 billion reasons why you should be glad you’re not part of Malaysia.
Happy SG50 Jubilee Singapore. May you prosper for many more years to come.
