It’s not always comfortable living in a multiracial country. Recently, we have witnessed a lot of issues and incidents that stoke racial tensions in the nation from khat to Zakir Naik. While stories like these often make headlines, the reality on the ground is entirely different.

Malaysian Hanif Jamal has gone to Twitter to encourage others to share their positive experiences with their multiracial friends via the hashtag #SayangMalaysia.

Here, we have compiled a few of our favourites:

1. Uncle Mani, the Mechanic

Fifi shared about the bond between her father, a Malay man, and an Indian uncle by the name of Mani, and how they both exchange food and gifts with each other during the festive seasons.  She wrote,

“When it is nearing Hari Raya, my dad will give a hamper to uncle Mani, and during Deepavali, Uncle Mani will also give us a hamper with some delicious Indian desserts and sweets. It is a tradition between our two families.”

2. Tharishine and Her Six BFFs

Nurul and her classmates are super close, just like a regular family. They work together and rely on each other’s strengths to ensure that everyone excels in their studies. She says her Chinese friends tend to be useful in maths so everyone will come to them for difficult problems. On the other hand, her Indian friends are good at English, and her Malay friends excel at Bahasa Malaysia.

Yes, we do have a lot of issues in Malaysia, and plenty of them are unavoidably related to race. But we need to remember the bond we share with one another and learn how to deal with these issues with respect and tolerance. This is our home, quarrelling is normal, but we are still a family.
