Ng Sek San the initiator of the Malaysian Spring being interviewed by the media with Nurul, looking on. Seksan’s message to Malaysians... “ to spread the message of hope and change, and to get people to participate in the process of making a better Malaysia, through the simple gesture of planting a flower in the street. Our message to others is that colour (of the skin) is not important to new Malaysia, so they can use whatever colours and material.” Let the Spring flowers bloom in every corners of Malaysia – Sek San is hoping to see 28 Millions flowers before 5th of May . by atoong Page 4
