Look at everything with an open heart and mind

A foreigner friend once said to me, the most amazing thing about Malaysia is that you could hear all kinds of languages being spoken at a table—for someone from a country that speaks only one language, this is an amazing feat! Indeed this is one of the things that make Malaysians feel proud.

In a multi racial country, acceptance and respect are crucial. We should respect the difference between races, language, religion, and culture. Being able to live together harmoniously is what we pride ourselves for. Look at everything with an open heart and mind, and you will find positivity in everything.

曾有外国朋友跟我说,他觉得我国最奇妙之处就是能在一个饭桌上听到各种语言横行,对于他们这些来自单一语言国家的外国人而言,他觉得很不可思议!没错,这确实每一个大马人最自豪之处。

一个拥有多元种族的国家,最重要的议题是包容与尊重,尊重各族的差异性,包括母语、宗教、肤色以及文化的不同,而和谐与包容恰恰正是我国的光荣。看待一切事物,都应抱有开放兼容的思维,那么一切将会是正向与美好!
