I was back to my “real” home town for the weekend in conjunction with the temple festival that gonna held here. Triang, a small “cowboy” town in southern Pahang where the majorities are Chinese and followed by Malays and Indians. I was brought up here where I would call home although from the aspect of infrastructures, Triang are way backward compare to the place i live now.
As an Indian who went to mandarin medium school in the area where Chinese are majority, I was never been discriminated as an Indian. I was always treated equally among my friends and the same happen when i moved on to secondary, always I’ll be seen hanging around with my “ah beng” buddies around, playing the so called Chinese conquered games like table tennis, badminton and mainly, basketball where i was the only real black sheep in the school team.
