[book] Honk If You’re Malaysian

It’s the fasting month, and yet, it doesn’t feel like it at all. Not when even the Islamic bodies are out on assault against Raja Petra aka RPK. Apa ni, pi la berdakwah to “pendatang”, pi la buat forum utk kembalikan orang Islam balik ke “jalan yang benar”, ni diorg pun mau main game politikus. Kata bulan posa masa utk cari pahala berlipat ganda etc, ni pi cari pasal ada la. poorah.

Thank God I found this book. This is probably the best thing I have stumbled this month, a great anecdote to those who’re convinced that our country is becoming the next Zimbabwe. Lydia Teh, begs to differ. She has successfully chronicled the everyday events and happenings of a typical Malaysian life, and point the funny aspect of it. As the saying goes, “rock rain” is better than a “gold rain” after all.

Like say, she wrote about her American expat friend who noticed that we have an obsession for food, I reckon that if she had written a prequel book, she might realise that Malaysians are now obsessed with blogs and politics (heck, she even wrote about “confessions of a blog addict”, but it had nothing related witht the fact that Malaysians are now the world’s most populous blogger). Now, even Tony Fernandes is a blogger. He must be the first CEO blogger I suppose. Hip hip hooray!! Bloggers unite!! His call for Malaysians to be more positive is very timely, absolutely fit to be his first official post entry. 😀

On to another blogger, Raja Petra. As he puts it, Malaysia Today’s “death” is only a signal that we’ve won!! Yeh, yeh, kita menang!! Home minister had been saying ‘warning letters’ had been issued ‘many times’ and they were all ‘ignored’, so how come he couldn’t specify how many? Present an example of these ‘warning letters’?

He also said RPK had been ‘insulting Islam, muslims, prophet Muhammad’, I couldn’t help but laughing from noon to break fast time. Make your own conclusion on who’s the real people who’ve insulted ‘Islam, muslims, prophet Muhammad’ so badly, they’d refuse to apologise to the Malaysians of Chinese ethinicity for calling them ‘pendatang’ (immigrants).

Well, that’s Malaysian for me. And seeing the positive side of every event. HONK!!!

  6. Why are politicians in BN are being let off the hook so easily? Why dun they put him in ISA? It’s quite a serious matter to call Chinese ‘pendatang’. And why are they putting a reporter in custody under ISA for? What the hell is happening to Malaysia? ISA = to protect the BN government?

    Meh.. It’s time for a change.

  7. Why? WHY? WHY…SO…SERIOUS? lol

    aurm-nur’s fucked up real hard by this incident. That whole pendatang sandiwara may be painful for all Malaysians who truly believe in “Bangsa Malaysia” including me, but, it means we’ve achieved a very, very powerful ammunition against them!! This is like 1987 again when that C4 mongolian exterminator claimed his keris is thirsty for Chinese blood, it can only backfire them. We are stronger than them, and we shall re-direct the insult back on them in a more intellectual way —propaganda!!

    And bingo, it really is our win after all. We won when that faggot said it, we won when Najis apologise instead, we won when the faggot refused to apologise, we won at every stage. They, are going down.
