a lot of things that happen around us are really no big deal, unless perhaps when we try to think too much into it.
like at the pizza joint. we were for dinner the other evening during the fasting month. it was about 7.15pm when we ordered. the other patrons were mainly muslims. what i noticed was that they were also served dried dates in little packets to break fast with. we didn't get any.
like at the petrol station. i usually self-serve & that's fine with me. but i noticed many times that the attendants will clean the windscreens of the other cars. but not mine, unless i asked them to.
is this preferential treatment on the small scale? a result, perhaps, of a spill-over effect from the affirmative action on a national platform?
or, maybe i'm just paranoid?
maybe that's why malaysia day & 1malaysia just doesn't ring a bell with me.
