Beyonce, Michael Jackson, Joline, Andy Lau, S.H.E. and many other great entertainers concerts, can attract thousands of Malaysians. They are willing to cough out a few hundred bucks just to be with their idols. No harm, great entertainment and rightly Malaysians should be proud that they love and support their idols singing and musical talents.

But when it comes to what is going on locally, especially things that are affecting them in the present and the future, they are so reluctant to get involved, even though most of it are free. They simply could not be bothered with it. "Why bothered me, there are others who are doing a great job to defend and look after my interest".

Yes, it's always others and not me. This is the reason why our country is going down the drain. The world is changing but Malaysians feel that they need not have to change, simply because they are just happy for now, why worry about tomorrow.

When you talk to them about corruptions, they can accept the fact that it's just normal and happens everywhere. When you talk to them about politics, they show no interest and ignorant of their voting rights and that his/her one single vote can make the change for a better Malaysia.

This posting is to bring awareness to those who feels that it is not their obligation nor in their interest to make the changes for a better tomorrow and the future generations but just depend on others to do it for them.

Make a start today and get yourself involved. The following are a list of what's happening this November.
