Perkasa, a vocal NGO on the other hand, is in the limelight again. MCA and Gerakan are pissed off with Persaka's action of giving angpow in white envelope. Is this really an issue? It is good enough that Dato' Ibrahim Ali wanted to give angpow to the Chinese. The gestures are noble and trivial things such as the colour of the envelope is a non issue. Ironically, last night was the Cap Goh Mei and firecrackers were heard all over the country after midnight. Nobody lodge police reports on the noise of the firecrackers as the non Chinese understand and tolerate the culture of the Chinese. So, in the spirit of the new year, that is the Year of the Water Dragon, MCA and Gerakan should forgive and forget the actions of Persaka in giving white angpows. Gong Xi Fa Cai and a happy Cap Goh Mei.
"Itu pasal sesuatu tempat perlu masyarakat majmuk supaya faham budaya antara satu sama lain,"
"Bagaimanapun kata Syed Hassan, mereka kini sudah faham dan jelas mengenai budaya masyarakat Cina."sekarang bila sudah adakan majlis seperti itu baru kita faham. Kita tidak ada niat untuk tujuan lain apa lagi menghina. Sebab itu pentingnya kekalkan penempatan penduduk pelbagai kaum agar semua faham budaya antara mereka," kata beliau lagi
