The pictures are not clear because it's taken from inside the bus, with my Blackberry. I meant to take more but I got so excited when I realised what was happening that I managed to get only these two.
It was 13 May 2011. I was half way to Singapore that day. We had stopped in Pagoh for the obligatory break in the journey.
When I boarded the bus to wait for the remaining passengers, I noticed another passenger, an old man, walking very slowly back to the bus. Two younger guys strolled up to him and then one of them took his hand to help him cross the road and board the bus. Simple enough. So what do you see?
At first, I saw 2 Malay men with 1 Chinese man.
I had to chide myself and correct the bad programming in my head.
Then I realise that what I saw was 2 young Malaysians helping another old Malaysian. This is how it should be always. Not only on May 13 but every day.
What did you see?
