1MALAYSIA is a noble concept, almost identical to Bangsa Malaysia, which is being promoted by the new administration under Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.
If I'm not wrong the main aim of the whole 1MALAYSIA idea/concept is to promote a greater sense of belonging as citizens of this beloved nation of ours.
1MALAYSIA is also all for UNITY, but of course we are also beginning to witness the pure commercial side of 1MALAYSIA.
I'm sure the overwhelming support from our corporate giants and others from the private sector is much appreciated but guess we will also have to be a little careful so that 1MALAYSIA is not hijacked by some fellow Malaysians with different self-serving agendas.
It's no surprise now that many businessmen are trying hard to churn out new products, marketing gimmicks, commercial and the likes, and tag it with 1MALAYSIA.
But something much bigger and a little disturbing also seems to be brewing.
A reliable source confirmed of attempts to get the Government or more specifically the PRIME MINISTER to support the creation of another Formula 1 racing team from Malaysia.
Yes, you're right! It is to be called Formula 1Malaysia Team or something like that.
Wonder if this the 1Malaysia that we're trying to explain to the people in Nenasi, Batang Kali and Kuala Lipis!
While Formula 1Malaysia sounds good it would be wiser to listen to the voices from the ground, at a time when the Government is facing relentless criticism from every Tom, Dick and Harry.
This latest move to ride 1MALAYSIA, I was told, is another of Datuk Seri Tony Fernandes's brilliant idea.
p/s Lately Santa Claus has also been very generous to certain motorsports associations. Big donations huh? Could it be some form of greasing to win their support?
