A Hypothesis: The Origin of Malaysian People - Part 2

Great, now God had created three races in Malaysia. They could be easily distinguished by the color of their skin. Since they were no longer as close together as before, they lived separately. Different languages were developed due to this segregation.

After some time, God became bored again. He made a lot of statues of men, women, and also many kinds of animals too. Most of them were made from clay, and the rest were made from wood, stones, brass, iron, bronze, marble, glass, and even crystals. He was still bored because he didn't know what to do with them. Oh yeah! Why don't we introduce more diversity to the nation!?

God spreaded good news again. Go and take those statues and worship them. That will become your religion!!! Remember the third group who did not managed to bathe in the swimming pool? This time, they were not going to lose out anymore. Even though they were made up of less than 10 percent of the total population, they managed to grab at least 70 percent of the statues. They built their houses of worship and tried their best to put in all the statues. There were so many statues, and finally they decided to put those statues "everywhere". On the walls, on the roofs, use them as gates, pillars, beams, and the rest were taken home.

The fair skin race reached the location where God put all the statues after the dark skin race left. Since there were not much left, they "sapu" (cleared) everything. They built their houses of worship. The rest were taken home to be worshipped as well.

Finally, the group with light brown skin arrived the next morning at about 5:30 a.m. To their dismay, they found that there were nothing left anymore. They shouted and shouted very loudly that it woke everyones up. So, they ended up building their houses of worship with no statues at all, inside and outside.

Well, that's the end of the hypothesis from year 4007.

Personally, I believe everyone, every human being is created to help each other, leveraging each other strengths to build a better human race. Do not let skin colors, languages, or religions to be the barrier for us to build a peaceful world. I am color blind, and I wonder, does God himself have a religion?

A Hypothesis: The Origin of Malaysian People - Part 1

It has been a miserable year 2007 so far. Busy with making money is one thing, but busy with "work" itself is kind of stupid. Well, it is inter-related but at some point, we need to make the disctinction. Don't take life too seriously, no one gets out of life alive... Like Dewan Karut said, kalau diambil serius, ke kuburlah alamatnya (if it is taken too seriously, grave will be the destination).

Well, imagine that this is year 4007 and you are an archeologist. Here is a hypothesis you could be making about the origin of Malaysians. Again, if you are not happy with this blog entry, please leave now. Go home and learn to suck your own cock. By the way, if you are not a Malaysian, you might not be able to understand a thing. Sorry, no further explanation.

In the "beginning", there was only one race in Malaysia, i.e. the one with dark skin. One day, God thought that it was a good idea to introduce some diversity to the nation. So, he made a giant size swimming pool. Of course, it was bigger than all those pools in Beijing 2008 Olympic Games combined. The good news was spread next. Go to take a bath at the Swimming Pool of God and your skin will become fair.

The first group who went and bathed was indeed became fair-skinned, and the news spread further. About a quarter of the total population managed to lighten the tone of their skin. Word of mouth was the best form of communication, and now, more than half of the country came to take bath. The water level in the swimming pool had been tremedously reduced. It had became dirty as well, but the pool could still accomodate everyone. Unfortunately, this second group was only able to lighten their complexion to tan or light brown.

Finally, the last group who arrived discovered that certain area of the pool had dried up. There was a small area containing water up to a two inches high. So, it was good enough to fit in this third group. Too bad, there was only enough water to cover their feet and palm.

This ends the first part of two.
