BOLEH (Can or Can do)

Published on Sep 30, 2012 by
Ever since I was a child, I had a goal...
A naive but hopeful dream, that when I grow up,
I'd like to be someone who would make a difference in this world...

Growing up in a developing city like KL, I do agree that Malaysia,
isn't like one of the big and formidable countries, if you wanna compare...

But I believe, things are evidently changing in today's generation,
Children are technologically more savvy than most average adults,
They know how the world works, even before puberty,
They dream bigger dreams, than we ever dared to when we were their age...

Being a nation of different cultures and up bringing,
I still believe we have something that binds us together,
"The Boleh Spirit".

We turn the page to a new era, a new world we call the World Wide Web,
Through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube or any other social network, we listen to the voices of the people...

Despite our different goals, I'm sure we have one common goal of putting Malaysia the map.

Traveling to different parts of the world has shine a new light on my perspective...
I discover the similarities we all have, despite the fact that there are 7 billion of us in this world...

We all fall in love, just like everyone else...
We are inquisitive, with the hunger for knowledge...
And sometimes the kid inside us, just wants to be careless and free.

There is a theory that everyone in this world, is connected to anyone,
through a chain of acquaintances of not more than 6 links. They call this the 6 degrees of separation.

It's fascinating to know that we are all, 5 friends away from being acquainted to a random stranger in a train in South Korea...
Or even a tuk yuk driver from Thailand...

This shows that we are all relatable to one another,
that our culture and influence can make a difference in this world.
And that Malaysians have a voice of our own
And we should spread our Boleh spirit to the world

Let us embrace the differences we all have, and unite as Malaysians with the Boleh spirit.
And continue to strive to put Malaysia on the world's stage.

Malaysians Can! Malaysians Boleh!
