I am a Malaysian who has been living overseas for the past two years now and it is interesting to look at Malaysia from afar especially from the political perspective.
One thing I would like to comment on is the political mindset of the politicians especially those in the governing parties who are still sticking to the old political model of the '50s and '60s when everything was based on race.
The consequence of this is practically all government policies especially those involving education, politics, economics are still very much based on race.
No wonder Malaysia is only good at growing at its own pace when compared to other countries in the region.
It has already been slipping behind Thailand economically and very soon, Vietnam will catch-up with us. And don't be surprised if Cambodia soon overtakes Malaysia too!
My opinion is that Malaysia badly needs a new generation of politicians who will dare to tear apart all the current racial policies in all areas and come up with policies which are truly for all Malaysians irrespective of race and religion.
Only then can Malaysia 'boleh'.
