Pribumi : The Gathering

Yesterday’s news. I guess it’s ok to hold gatherings. Apart from promoting cooperation, it would definitely wake up our people from their lifeless gaze from watching of AF or 1 in a million or whatever artificial reality show that the entertainment industry throws on tele. I really don’t get it about going all goo goo gaa gaa of a few people who usually can barely sing. It may seem ok for our young but what’s going with the makciks and neneks???

Look, I know the argument that we shouldn’t be so serious every second in life (although our Prophet once chided us for having the time to laugh around when death is just around the corner!), and I do take some time of kidding around. But hey, get your priorities straight, when the going get tough, I don’t believe we should waste our time idling in front of Astro or reading useless infotainment magazines or searching for the latest gossip about these singers! Of course, I don’t mean that we all should get a parang and a matching set of cangkul and run amok. What I mean is that first things first.

Have our children did their homework? Do you know where they are? What are your plans for the family in 10 years time? Did we pay zakat due? How about our neighbours, are the well? These sort of things and more. Stop being distracted by today’s mindless entertainment. The irony of today so-called reality show is thatyou are actually getting further away from reality.

One more thing, I hope after the gathering, it shouldn’t be all quiet. Like I said, Malaysians are great at planning, it’s the implementation that sucks. What’s our action plan after the gathering? Paying lip service is getting to be too cheap these days.
