I've been having this issue going back and forth.

 

You didn't ask me... but I'd opt for the former. Particularly if you, like me, prefer lower volume levels.

Yes, you should. (So should I.)

Thats almost the same with even the local public universities. Then there's also high priced government loans that the local students have to pay. That's probably going to change regardless (the loans that is) for the better of all but the racial treatment for education will depend on who wins.

 

I see, but I still maintain that change will be gradual.  Fast and sweeping changes cause riots and whatnot, I'm sure they don't want that.

I doubt it will cause any harm.  I don't think there's a secret contingent of Chinese Malaysians or Indian Malaysians lurking here waiting to pounce.  tongue.gif  It also helps that, outside of caring about you my friend, we really aren't invested in the election personally.

Pardon my ignorance but there's Indian Malaysians? I thought all Malaysians were Chinese or people of distant Chinese ancestry with very little differences in culture.

Malaysia is mostly composed of Malays however there are significant Chinese and Indian minorities.

Or if the opposition wins, "Malaysia is comprised of significant Chinese and Indian populations along with a Malay majority."  Actually, isn't the Malay population about to dip under 50%?  So more of a plurality then?

Goddammit the tablet borked the long ass history crash course I tapped and trying to fixed it erased all of them. grrrrrr

Here it is again, only a lot more concise then the first non-existent one:
  1. 1400: some royalty from an empire that is in indonesia ran to the peninsula that is modern Malaysia, and established the Royal Malacca Kingdom. This is where Malay came from.
  2. Blablabla kingdom expand, there's that one massive Chinese merchant fleet doing business for a while, then in came the colonial fleets of Dutch, Portugese and British, with the British getting the upper hold of the land of Malays since they honeyed their words best to get rid of Dutch and Portugese colonists. That and superior gunpowder tech.
  3. The British brought in Indian and Chinese slave labour to maintain their colony here.
  4. WW2 happened, we fought the Imperial Japanese, got independence in 1957 with the effort of all races, Singapore broke ties with us some time after that, the name Malaysia is used in 1963 until now.


The incumbent won, but this is the closest, with a "majority" of only a bit more than half the parliament seats. Change is happening no doubt.

I meant "significant" with respect to the population size... but your interpretation is interesting too tongue.gif

Hmm... no comment tbh. It shows that we want change though according to how many the opposition is voted this time relative to past GEs.

I mean from the standpoint of your continuing education... not really social change back home.
