  5. That figure does not include those settling down in the US, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. UMNO must be extremely happy now? Did those people leave because they believe PAS will putong them when PAS comes to power?

    All the 40,000 odd Malaysians who settled in Singapore must be Chinese, to boost the local Chinese population from current 76% to projected 95%

    As we all know, it’s to do with the bumiputra (son of the soil) policy in Malaysia. Apart from that, Malaysia and ordinary Malaysians are wonderful people and we share much in common.
