With tales of mixed parentage, memories, struggles and hopes for a better Malaysia, the anecdotes reveal that we may be Malay, Chinese, Indian or Others but fundamentally we are all the same.Featuring 50 interviews from public figures across the country, Found In Malaysia Vol. 2 reflects a more diverse set of Malaysians than the first volume, published last year. This time around, the personalities share their growing up stories from the 1930’s to the 1980’s – at a time when life was simpler and Malaysians were united without the constant reminding to bond through the 1Malaysia concept.An assortment of stories, some a walk down memory lane while others are simply revelations. Consistently though, the narratives shared by recognised Malaysians remind us that no one political party, person or lobby group has a definitive version of who constitutes a “pendatang” or “penduduk” in this complicated yet fascinating country of ours.Found In Malaysia Vol. 2 provides an insight into Malaysia’s social and political psyche through the eyes of colourful Malaysian individuals.
