Recently there was this campaign by a local satellite TV provider for Malaysians to tell their 1Malaysia stories. If you are not familiar with the 1Malaysia concept, it is basically a concept by our leaders to promote unity in the country. And a lot of brands/ companies are milking the concept dry by launching their own 1Anything campaigns.
This MyStory campaign is probably another one trying to get us to be a little patriotic. I thought since I had some free time, and I can’t shoot video, I thought I would write my story on the blog.
I remember a time when I wasn’t reminded of the race of the person I was playing with, hanging out with or chatting with. I remember a time when I read the newspapers and find that the leaders working for the people, not fighting for “rights”. I remember a time when I didn’t need a slogan or a brand to depict a united country.
This is my story. And that WAS my Malaysia. Now someone please give it back to me.
