Know your neighbours

Last weekend, I was invited by a group of residents in SS19/1F to join them for their monthly gathering. When I arrived, I was impressed by what I saw. I was told that once a month, the neighbours would gather and spend time getting to know each other. Each house takes turn to host the monthly gathering.

Neighbours of different races came and everyone contributed food and drinks. Their children mingled together. The women each contributed food which represented their different cultures. I saw unity. I saw the ideal Malaysia. I saw what every neighbourhood in Subang Jaya ought to be. I know it's possible for Malaysia to be free of racial politics. I saw this in SS19/1F.
