abm-siaAgenda Perangkuman Sosial untuk Negara


Wawasan untuk mencapai sebuah masyarakat yang adil, saksama dan inklusif telah termaktub dalam Rukunegara yang diisytiharkan pada 31 Ogos 1970. Setelah hampir 42 tahun sejak itu, ternyata kita masih jauh dari melaksanakan serta menjayakan wawasan yang telah digariskan dalam dokumen bersejarah tersebut.


Kini, hampir 40 peratus Anak Bangsa Malaysia masih lagi terperangkap di dalam kitar kemiskinan dan ketaksamarataan yang diwarisi dan diturunkan dari satu generasi ke generasi yang lain. 12 juta warganegara Malaysia tergolong dalam kumpulan isi rumah berpendapatan rendah dan miskin dan tidak mempunyai keupayaan untuk mengatasi kekurangan serta kelemahan yang terpaksa mereka hadapi setiap hari. Individu dan kumpulan yang paling hampir dengan setiap masalah ini tidak kira sama ada warganegara atau bukan warganegara, sering ditindas dan masih terpinggir.


Jurang perbezaan antara 40% isi rumah terbawah dan ahli masyarakat yang lain kian meningkat. Mereka terperangkap dalam pelbagai kekurangan yang lahir disebabkan asas aset yang rendah. Ini termasuk tahap pendidikan dan kemahiran yang rendah, kesihatan dan nutrisi yang kurang memuaskan; dan persekitaran hidup yang tidak menyeluruh atau lengkap.

Since December 2021, Malaysians aged 18 and above are *automatically registered as voters* and can bring their MyKad to their designated polling centres to vote on Polling Day.
To confirm that you are registered as a voter, and to check for your polling centre after SPR announced the Polling dates, go to this SPR's site...

ongohingOrdinarily in everyday life, they already do thoughtful things for us in myriads of ways in our homes, offices, hospitals, schools...

There is no one of us who could have done without grandmother, mother, aunty, wife, sister, cousin, daughter, niece, neighbour... Not to mention what they do for us in our places of work as bosses or support staff, doctors and nurses, cleaners, teachers, police women, administrators, accountantants... (Indeed in the modern era there is almost no male-only profession or job.)

On top of that, many women combine their paid responsibilities with home responsibilities and community responsibilities. As men, our work responsibilities alone bring most if not all of us home fatigued, drained and in need of recreation, entertainment or just sleep. Women workers come home no less tired, drained or in need of a break. Yet many of them never lose sight of the family needs in a given day even when they are at work away from home. During the lunch break or weekends they have obtained whatever grocery or marketing so that preparation of the family meals could be done upon their return home from outside work. Then there's the supervision of the children's study and homework. There is also the the ferrying of the children to and from school on top of in-house or outside work. Not to forget that many of them are usually also keeping an eye on family expenses vis-a-vis family income.

Just writing this list down makes me tired just thinking of how much energy, strategic thinking, and logistics planning precedes the tireless implementation of all this. Everyday!

Received a pleasant surprise in the mail. The message says it all (edited for flow and privacy):

Hello fine folks at SABM,

My name is Andrew and I am a proud Malaysian in my second year of undergrad... While I realize that I may have not been quick enough to respond to the closing of voters registration 3/4 days ago, I thought this message was still relevant, especially to those who have already registered.

It is a short, two minute video of us (a few other Malaysians...) speaking straight in to the fourth wall. I was hoping it would be merely part of a series of videos that will sort to reach these ends.

On your website it is stated that the precondition for submitting content/stories is that..."It must enrich the spirit of One People, One Nation... We'll gladly take over from there."

Here is a link to the video where a short description is attached:


I was hoping that you would share it. Please, if you get the chance, look at it and let me know what you think. Personally, my 21st birthday still eludes me so I am ineligible to vote, but I think one's political power should be taken a lot more seriously.


Cheers! And thank you so much for your patience.


Andrew Tan



Thanks for the timely message, Andrew. And come back soon!
