Strange malaise of the literate uneducated and more…

Fren: Hey, do you know how to contact MCA Michael Chong?

BananaC: Why? You want his service ka?

Fren: Not me lar, my fren wants to ask Michael to help.

BananaC: Help what?

Fren: He wants to complain about another fren who ate his money in a business deal.

BananaC: Aiya… this is a criminal case lar, just tell your fren to file police report.

Fren: Seek Michael Chong faster, mah.

BananaC: File police report yourself is faster. Whaffor your fren want to use Michael Chong as a middle man. If your fren dunno how to read and write, then he got reason go get Michael Chong to file a report in the newspaper and take publicity photo appear in standard pose with the complaint letter.

Fren: My fren is a doctor, you know!

BananaC: How come a doctor also need to get things done via Michael Chong? Doctor can read and write what! Maybe your doctor fren cheated through school exam or too damn lazy to fill complaint form or follow legal recourse ka?

Fren: We Chinese used to this sort of service, what.

BananaC: You mean we Chinese are such dependency syndrome people who even though after going through education or university, can read and write but still need to run to Michael Chong to sort out our private lives grievances?

Fren: Sure ma.

BananaC: No wonder MCA cannot become political party, you all conditioned MCA psychologically to be stuck in the era of the many academically unschooled.

Fren: We never see MCA do politics. They like to focus do community complaints bureau service like Michael Chong, lar. Anyway, MCA never demonstrated they can do national politics.

BananaC: Tell your doctor fren to join MCA to enjoy more close relationship with Michael Chong. Wey, maybe your fren can get to brush shoulders with the MCA big brothers also.

Fren: You think he don’t want, ah? He joined many years but never even get invitation letter to any political training!

Just do it, Chua Soi Lek

Never knew so many Malaysians suffer from Hamlet’s Syndrome….

So little time, but soooo much wasting of precious hours analyzing to death the facts that everybody, including my favourite char kuey teow man already knows about BN and MCA – the fall guy flavour of the month.

There comes a time, when we heed a certain call, that the organisation, must stand, stand together as one…. (or at least fight a good fight).

How now, brown cow?

1. Create value for your members

Give them a sense of pride, that being a card carrying member matters – give each of your subscribing members the power to decide who to lead MCA as a political party instead of MCA as a social welfare organisation. Still don’t get it? Direct election of the Central Committee is the answer.

2. Get rid of bad salesmen/saleswomen aka grassroot leaders

It is intolerable for any business, to have salesmen/saleswomen who just don’t and won’t get the job done to get the buy-in from customers or members for the organisation’s products/services. If MCA divisional leaders are unable to sell MCA the political party to the grassroots, get rid of these lousy salesmen. If your grassroots leaders are unable to jump up the benchmark above ‘longkang’ pointing mode, get rid of them.

Favourite pose and image of MCA and the faithful longkang

Bring in those who can tell and sell MCA to Malaysians of all colours. Remember how MCA once had 15 Member of Parliaments before 2008? Can you afford to have 0 MPs whom can be perceived able to speak up on policy matters in Parliament in the next General Election?

3. Just do it, Chua Soi Lek!

Let’s see if the MCA members made the right choice choosing Chua Soi Lek to do the job to take charge of the 61 year old party’s turnaround – from a social welfare organisation into a political party of choice for Malaysians.

No pain, no gain.
