85% of people who renounce their Malaysian citizenships are Chinese.

Makes one wonder on the push and pull factors.

Why am I not surprised? The way it's going, it's everyone for themselves, the non malays are leaving in droves. In my case, my dad is Indian and my mum is mixed, she has mostly Afghan and Indian blood and some Malay blood from way before. I may be bumiputera by a fluke but I have never identified myself as Malay and never used my so called special rights. My family worked hard and we paid our way through just like most non Malays has been forced to do. I love our country, I love our people and it breaks my heart to know I am not coming back when I am done studying. I'll probably migrate lar. Sigh..
