- Malacca [reflecting]. 17/03/2013
To imagine this is where it all began, I am slightly saddened. What I am seeing now, is my country leaning towards the same defeat (against the Western colonization) as did Malacca, around four hundred years ago. Except, today it is a lot worse; it is not the colonization of wealth we are succumbed too, but also the colonization of mind and norms. And what is a civilization without its own norms?
