And My Question Is ...


when i was taught in school in the history lessons, those colonials from europe came to our side of the world, asia in general, looking and hunting for spicy things? or 'rempah ratus'. bagai budak sekolah yang lurus bendul, we and myself in particular accepted that as a fact.

later on, i try to add and minus that fact in my little brain, rationalising it, how valuable is that rempah ratus till they have to come and invade our country? is it more valuable from any treasures in the world like gold, diamonds, rubies etc etc? what good is that rempah ratus will do for them back in their countries? for food preservations? never heard that. never heard also that they cook their meals with rempah ratus. if that rempah ratus is for trade, to whom they sell it? and lastly, is that rempah ratus able to fund and finance their voyage?

slowly i felt that there is something wrong here. till this day i think that fact is still being taught in our schools to our naive school boys and girls. honest to God, to me, it is the biggest lies ever.

do you really know why they came and invaded us?

"tak melayu hilang di dunia" and where is he? where is his tombstone?
