Let's go blind.


The head of an animal is the rostral part (from anatomical position) that usually comprises the brain, eyes, ears, nose and mouth (all of which aid in various sensory functions, such as sight, hearing, smell and taste). Some very simple animals may not have a head.

These simple animals are the ones sitting and running our country. These simple animals do not sit down to discuss and find a solution with the people instead they make decision base on what benefits they can get out from it. Every single action by them must masuk poket.

I have the greatest respect for my friends in Brickfields, who are not only blind but have great endurance to what is happening there. Many of these blinds for the past two years had been knocked and their feet run over by drivers who expect them to see where they are going. These drivers have the cheek to come out from their cars and scold and curse them instead of seeing how hurt they are or apologize. Some of the blinds have been molested and rape. Funny thing is that when they want to make a police report, the police can tell them “awak tak nampak mahu buat repot, pergilah”.

Next there are numerous hotels that sprang up competing with each other with cheapest rate for those wanting an hour. Then we have the foreigners. You want a fix, no problem. Conclusion Brickfield has turned into a red light district.

It would be good if those simple animals can make an effort to go blind and walk around Brickfields to know and feel what it is like to live in a chaotic area that has no proper planning and respect for the people working and living there. Is it asking too much to find solution that works for the people for long term?
