This is the 10th year anniversary of that earth shaking Reformasi in Indonesia -which succeeded. But the Reformasi in Malaysia -which had not succeeded -had attracted little interests for remembrance despite the 10th year anniversary. Yet the lessons need to be learned or the same mistakes could recur. To get some inspirations may be we can start by looking back at the successful Indonesian Reformasi?
