Dear Malaysian brothers and sisters,

We Singaporeans are your family members, friends, school mates, colleagues, customers and generally well-wishers.

We go to Malaysia so often for your good food, shopping and the occasional massage. And we know many of you come to Singapore to work, facing a few hours of daily journey so that you can earn money and give your families a better life.

In fact, that is all we want - a better life for our families and a brighter future for our children. In this way, we are no different from each other. In fact, we could have been the same country, if not for the way things turned out over 50 years ago.

But recently, some Malaysian politicians have upset the status quo by digging up old wounds, and trying to pit us against each other to achieve their political agenda. And some politicians have even resort to telling us to pressure our government! This has led to weakening of bilateral ties, extra jams at Causeway and generally made the mood tense and now many of us are starting to be afraid /reluctant to go to Malaysia.

Is all this to shore up votes by bashing Singapore, or to distract you from their failure to address local problems, we don't know.

But we are tired. We don't want to get involved in this cross-boundary politics over water, airspace and sea territory. Yes, these are very significant to us because we are small, and we need to fight over all these just to ensure our own safety and security. But we all have our daily lives to live, jobs to do and families to feed. We don't need to start a war or extra conflict with each other, our closest neighbors.

All we can ask is, can we get along?

Please ask your government to stop making Singapore your bogeyman. Growing your economy, reduce corruption, cleaning up crime - surely your government can better tackle the issues if they spend less time and effort talking across the Causeway and more time engaging with you, the rakyat.

We believe that Singaporeans and Malaysians can get along with each other. We are bounded together by culture, languages and family ties. Any problems we have, we can solve by talking, not arguing or fighting with each other. Let's make our governments recognise that.
