i studied in a Convent school for 11 years. my friends came from different ethnic groups Malay, Chinese, Indian, Siamese and etc. i'd been used to mingle with friends that didn't share the same custom with me. but who cares. as long as we can get along, we never actually make race as a barrier between us. we share stories, laughs, foods and drinks without even care.
and today i met a patient who refuse to be treat by me cause I'm a Malay. it did breaks my heart. cause previously i never 'double standard' my patients. i treat them equally. whether there are Malay or Chinese (i haven't had Indian patient here in Kelantan). even i myself went to dental clinics run by Chineses.
and this woman is a teacher. who's supposed to show some examples to others.
