No matter how dying this country in aiding them, open doors to their workers, being the first lending hand in time of trouble, remember tsunami, Malaysian aid among the first dispatched there. But all went down the drain, unnoticed by them.
Why can't we adopt the same attitude, after all we got alternative,they are the Filipinos, the Bangladeshi, the Pakistani and the whole world adores Malaysia, even in Sabah where purportedly claimed the poorest state in Malaysia but hundred thousand of immigrant actually living there making ends meet, if that state so poor could this be possible?
Let's adopt the same attitude as them toward us.
