my wish list for a better malaysia

After reading and listening to countless ceramahs about both PR and BN manisfesto, i thought of wanting to do my own wish list of what i hope the new ruling govt is able to achieve for a better malaysia.

Help to reduce the spiral cost of living, cost of house, cost of car, cost of petrol. Especially housing, which you spend your whole life paying for it.
Scrap  the Kedai 1Malaysia, Sarapan 1 Malaysia, we don’t need government to spend money to do something that create unfair competition to existing business owners. Instead, we should scrap out monopoly and under table business and let the market compete fairly and freely. Look at Digi,Maxis,Celcom competition, at the end, benefit the customers.
If Proton and MAS cannot compete, govt should not pump money to bail them. Let other companies that can provide good service with cheap price do the job.

2)Public Transport
Better public transport to reduce jam, more integrated bus-lrt route, easier access to public transport info, e.g. bus route made available on line, on bus stop, timely bus arrival, helpful website or mobile apps.
Increase the existing cabin size of LRT and MRT or add more trains.

3)Education System
Tamil and Chinese school should be recognized and given appropriate govt funds. But need to ensure BM and English is mandatory subject and also acts as a passing requirement. Should learn from each other, e.g. Chinese School good with maths. E.g. The Chinese schools association should teach other school how to teach better in maths. Each school can remain their own identity but more interaction should be done also. E.g. Indian school visit Malay school during hari raya event. Cultural exchange summer camp program etc for the youth to learn and appreciate each other’s culture.
Free govt uni level education. Entry to uni must be passed the merit. Ensure timely the quality of lecturers and relevance of subjects. We must improve and move up the global education ratings. Organize internship program for uni student so that easier for them to find employment. I think eventually all our govt uni should use English as the teaching language. Else our students can only compete locally, cannot compete with the world.
Scholarship given based on merit. Each time you hear news of straight A students unable to get scholarship, you think these smart student will work in Malaysia? We must secure local talents, then only we can continue more to attract oversea talent. The US and Singapore is a good example , a country that attract talent, because it is based on merit. You need good talents to run a good country.
English for Maths and Sains. Let’s face it, how much would you practise sains and maths in BM in workplace?

4)Educating Public
Eradicate biases knowledge->sarawakian don’t leave on tree, Kelantan Chinese under PAS rule no place to buy pork.
Must teach public about the truth of May 13, must learn and move on, don’t forever plague the people.
National Day parade should be celebrated at Sep16 instead of 31Aug.
Educate public on good financial habits.

4)Security and safety.
Increased salary of policeman to reduce the need of kopi-o. Train them and equip them better so that they can have a faster response time.
Army expenditure must be justified. Too many cases of brainless and over the top army purchase.
Add street lights where required and make sure to fix it quickly if spoiled.
Increase police patrolling. Heavier crime punishment and better enforcement.
Educate public on crime prevention. E.g. when going out for house for long holiday, when walking alone in street or car park…etc

5)Orang Asli status and rural development
They too are a part of Malaysia but have been neglected from the main stream for too long. Mainstream media only potrays Malays, Chinese, Indian.
More rural development projects. Access to water, electricity, school, medical, build roads, setup  agriculture. This beside helping the rural people, it also create more job opportunities, so that not everyone would need to look for job in KL. A well-managed farmer in US can earn more salary than an average office worker.

6) Increased oil royalties to state
The oil producing state like Terengganu, Sarawak remains among the poorest state in Malaysia. The increased royalties must be handled properly and declared public of its expenses, priority should be given to help the poor. By helping the poor means teaching them to fish and providing them the fishing equipment, not giving them the fish to eat only.

7)Environment Issues
More recycle center and bin collection, educate public, encourage private sector on green initiative project, shut down dangerous plant, lynas and raub, those excessive damps in Sarawak. Enforcement on illegal logging, the fines from the illegal logging should be use to plant back more trees.
Planting back more trees = reduce floods. To improve irrigation system in flood prone areas. Better if can prevent, rather than bearing the cost of the flood damages.

8) Government Admin
More transparent, show public the breakdown figures to implement new projects. Get public feedback before proceed to any big project.
More efficient, improve govt servant speed, get rid of lazy BN culture
More accessible, e.g. when road got hole,  call,sms,email launch complain, quickly fix it! e.g. take picture of road hole, email to local council.
All minister must declare their assets!
Say No to racism… minister that said something racist should be suspended and fine. Take out forms that require you to fill race.
A minister must have certain qualification or job experience in that particular field, e.g. education minister must have degree in education, been a teacher/headmaster before etc…because in BN, we see too many minister talking non-sense.
Should have more debate among governing and opposition. Like the TV broadcast in USA. So that both parties policy will be brought forward to the public and justified and also do let public ask question.
Government should find ways of not relying too much on foreign labour. E.g. encourage usage of advance machinery in construction and factory areas to reduce foreign labour.
All projects must be declared to public and done in stages. E.g we cannot suddenly announce to take out all tolls. The toll staff need time also to find jobs.
Of course, all the said above would be meaningless if we don't go to vote ourselves.  so guys and girls, remember to vote!
