Politics in Malaysia is ridiculously flawed. The system is broken. The institutions are failing us. The individuals, in order to survive in the system, become flawed themselves. There’s something wrong with the way that society views politicians as well – why is it that at events they are feted like royalty, with money being spent to make them feel important, red carpet, worship? They are wakil rakyat, not gods. Meet-the-public sessions should be sessions where the rakyat go and ask them hard questions, to make them accountable, not to go and shake hands and pose for pictures and worship the ground they walk on. Why should so many people get police outriders? It is a disgusting ecosystem.

2-become-1 Malaysia. Double the penetration!
We love our government! We love Najib! We love all the multi-coloured bulbs decorating our beautiful city, Kuala Lumpur!
We love the Bunga Mangga-tipped street lamp decorations
— bursting like an orgasmic, static firework!
Have a lovely Christian holiday (non-existent in Peninsular Malaysia).
"...I had to leave Malaysia in a total disgust with the government and the bureaucratic system.
I like your website "uglymalaysia" . Truly speaks about Malaysia. I have lived there for 5 1/2 years and would not recommend to any one even for a vacation. The TV commercial that they show about " Malaysia Truly Asia" is a total trap."
