May 9 was a significant day for all Malaysians. It heralded a new landscape – economic, social and political – for the citizens. This book is a fascinating read that is retold through the eyes of a young boy, an unfortunate victim of a “business as usual” corrupt system that poses a serious threat to the nation’s economy. In the face of rising costs and unemployment, the boy yearned for a change. Will tomorrow ever come? By sharing glimpses from the innocent lenses of a child, the author has painted a stark contrast of childlike simplicity with the world of grown-ups that is consumed by greed and glittering gems. It captures the journey of a nation that has witnessed the most dramatic trajectories of greed and power.
