While our economy is going down, i've just finished reading a book called 'Pelangi Persia' by Dina Sulaiman. Seeing how Iranian live from a perspective of Indonesian makes me realize that we've heard too much crap from the west. Iran is nothing than what i had imagine before. If our government is looking for a role model...please choose Iran as example so that malaysian public will have access to cheap electricity, free water in the public places and lots of picnic spot. Plus, Iranian were so nice to God and guest. (pls remember i'm pissed off with the new electricity tariff...from rm200/month to rm400 this month)
Pls answer the following question:
Its good to have following nationalty.
-religious and have respect to others, regardless what color/religion they are. still can be happy in iran if u are zoroaster, sunni, christian...armenian. a good command in persian language is always an advantage
-lots of 'genius nuts' *iran is the largest pistachio exporter in the world
-they are free from commercialism or pop culture like us, they believe in their own movie & ideology. the president is really a humble man
-older woman can go to college, martyr's family got all the help they need, there's no orphan in Teheran coz all of them at least have been adopted by rich family even though they didn't live together
I watched Oprah and Astro Awani, then i come up with this comparison.
-being said as the happiest nation in the world but have least faith, actually they trust humanity
-people opt for family, happiness, academic, creativity.
-by 4 or 5pm parents will go home/market, be with their kids. I wonder how a doctor's life there
-few respondent have been staying in US said they would never raise a child in US environment
-the higher your income...the higher your income tax would be
-success measured by happiness, not about social class or your earnings
-you can stay as a student in university as long as you want coz education is free, if you're jobless government will still feed you
-the margin between social classes are small, why? coz they're corruption free or maybe minimal
-only 10% locals, the rest are foreigners
-architecture: superb as much as iran N denmark.
-of course not all of them are rich...some are struggling to live everyday BUT
-electricity, water and healthcare are FREE *Dr. Lamees Hamdan even wonder why America didn't provide free health care for the people
-no homeless people
-NO INCOME TAX (awesome!!)
-live next door to mother-in-law are common, not all mother-in-law are like Marie *Everybody Loves Raymond. Live next door to mother-in-law with central kitchen and chef enables you to have 3 meals sent to your house everyday~ lucky you doc
-ala.....you can think by yourself.
And so, my fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country. John F. KennedyThe whole point of this entry is i'm looking for happyness~ There is no perfect land but I think we just have to overcome our limitation. To some extent i dont agree with JFK.
