Lee Kuan Yew berdarah Melayu. Tak percaya?

Ini posting untuk kengkawan yang bertanya saya tentang latar belakang Lee Kuan Yew.

Kita tahu LKY ini petah berbahasa Melayu selain dari Mandarin, Inggeris, beliau juga boleh berbicara Hakka, bahasa vernacular.
Beliau ada berdarah Melayu.

His Peranakan roots
His mother’s family was Baba/Nonya (Peranakan aka mixed Malay/Chinese ancestry)… his father was of Hakka ancestry, his great grandfather having come from China. He never mentioned his mother’s family origins to my knowledge.

"We Straits-born Chinese are known as the Peranakan – the ladies are called nonyas while the men are called babas. We are the descendants of the early Chinese in the Straits Settlements of Penang, Malacca and Singapore… Malay influence, because of mingling and intermarriage, has produced a unique Peranakan culture and set of customs distinct from those of the Chinese community who came from China.”

Learning to be Chinese
For Lee, Chineseness was something of an acquired skill and later a political necessity. He was not brought up as a Chinese with a focus on China, but as a baba who looked to England. His language, food and culture were not that of a Chinese. And he followed the conventional career path of a baba. Not for him shopkeeping or trading. He went to London to study law. And so Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore became Harry Lee of Fitzwilliam College, Cambridge. His father had given him and two of his brothers English as well as Chinese names

Kenapa DAP Sarawak keluar dulu dari Pakatan: Taktik Lee Kuan Yew masih menyengat!


Apabila DAP Sarawak umum keluar PR, ramai yang garu kepala?
Apa dajjalnya DAP tidak sukakan PAS di Sarawak namun di Selangor pula suka.

Ini macam kasihkan bini bila di Selangor, bencinya pula di Sarawak.

Boleh ke benci kan seseorang itu berpandukan kat mana Bini itu boleh dipermainkan?

Aiyah, apek satu Malaya sudah tahu, DAP memang tidak suka kan PAS. Ini macam kes budak2 lah apek,

DAP sebenarnya tidak mahu dipersalahkan kalau mereka keluar pakatan. DAP mahu mencucuk PAS sampai PAS terpaksa ambil keputusan keluar dari PR.

Ini sama lah dengan kes mendiang Lee Kuan Yew yang kononnya menangis bila ditendang keluar oleh Tunku Abdul Rahman walhal sebenarnya ini semua game plan LKY dari awal lagi keluar dari Malaysia, dan tidak mahu dipersalahkan oleh rakyat Singapura ketika itu.


Baca helah DAP di Sarawak

World Map of Happiness: Does Malaysia make to the list of the top 20 countries?


Guy Kawasaki pointed out a very interesting article – The World Map of Happiness, listing out 20 of the most happy country in the world. This article is produced by Adrian G. White, a psychologist at the University of Leicester.

What is the definition of happy here? One may asked. According to ScienceDaily:
Participants in the various studies were asked questions related to happiness and satisfaction with life. The meta-analysis is based on the findings of over 100 different studies around the world, which questioned 80,000 people worldwide. For this study data has also been analysed in relation to health, wealth and access to education.
And there you go, the 20 most happy countries in the world.
  1. Denmark
  2. Switzerland
  3. Austria
  4. Iceland
  5. The Bahamas
  6. Finland
  7. Sweden
  8. Bhutan
  9. Brunei
  10. Canada
  11. Ireland
  12. Luxembourg
  13. Costa Rica
  14. Malta
  15. The Netherlands
  16. Antigua and Barbuda
  17. Malaysia
  18. New Zealand
  19. Norway
  20. The Seychelles
Some notable countries you don’t see in the list falls respectively at USA (23), France (62), China (82) Japan (90), India (125)
And the least happy countries are: Democratic Republic of the Congo(176), Zimbabwe(177), Burundi(178)
_______________________
Malaysia at 17 beats Singapore which is not in the list. This report is prior to the demise of its founding father, LKY. I guess the Singaporeans are a lot happier when the get out Singapore for a holiday in Malaysia. An we Malaysians become less happy when these Singaporeans leave their country and start littering around.
From here: http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/20-most-happy-countries-in-the-world/

Sebab Singapura maju:

Singapura bagus sebab:

1. ada GST sejak tahun 1984;
2. Harga kereta paling mahal di rantau ini, malah termahal di dunia;
3. ISA dikekalkan;
4. Rakyatnya berhemah, takut untuk mengutuk dan memfitnah kerajaan;
5. Macam2 cukai yang paling tinggi dikenakan terutamanya cukai pendapatan;
6. Negara Singapura sekangkang kera je;

-art-

Nak tambah lagi? Silakan. Ini dari saya pula:

7. Sebab x da PKR dan PAS
