Malaysia: Why so Desperate One?

Welcome to my blog.

My first post. Probably one of the reasons why I decided to start a blog. Why is Malaysia so desperate for International Intention that it has to draw on the likes of “Miss Georgia” or “Hang Tuah” as “Malaysians”? So what if they have Malaysian parents! Both for 1. can’t speak BM, 2. never lived in Malaysia, and 3. In my opinion, have little to do with what we, as a nation, represent.

We call ourselves “Truly Asia”, don’t we have well-nurtured homegrown Malaysian talents that can carry our flag internationally? What about Nicol David? Again, only after becoming world #1 did Malaysia taking notice. How does that make her feel? She and her family probably carried themselves through all the development as a young athlete without much (financial) support from the Malaysian govt. But that’s great!

People shouldn’t expect anyone to help them live their dreams. But nor should Malaysia hope to be internationally recognized by looking for fake Malaysians abroad!

Let’s focus on our own people and let them make us proud as Malaysians. Kalau tak ada then lets not pretend that we are.

Malaysia seems so desperate for international fame that the first olympian gold medalist will surely be idolized and made into an instant national icon. Malaysia is a great nation with awesome potential but let’s focus on what we have in our homeland. Let’s focus on the problems we face and find a way to solve them.

It’s unnecessary to make use of someone else accomplishments as Malaysia had very little to do with the “success” of Monica Pang, Stephen Rahman, and or Nicol David.

They owe their success to themselves and are taking Malaysia for a ride!

  5. good points and not based on rhetoric. but i believe not all malaysians perceive the same way you do. Based on my merely observation, we do not have the feeling of self- belonging to our own country, “MALAYSIA”. The Malays methaphors such as “Tanah Tumpah DarahKu” & “Ibu Pertiwiku” seem to be nothing or have no value to Malaysian nowadays. But one thing for sure, I AM VERY PROUD TO BE MALAYSIAN AND HOPE THAT I COULD CONTRIBUTE MORE!

  7. errr… Kevin, are you trying to imply that Hang Tuah is not a Malaysian? Well, I know there have been debates regarding the origin of Hang Tuah recently. About him being from China and stuff like that. Hehe. Sorry if it seems like a trivial matter to you, I’m just interested to hear more about your opinion on that since I’m a Malaccan, born & bred *wink* Kobar Melaka tu 😛

  9. hang tuah is malaysian. I’m talking more about the musical “hang tuah” where you really elect a non-Malaysian to play a local hero. I personally have no problem with it but some do 🙂

Fatherhood has been the most amazing experience so far. When people ask me how I feel, I find it hard to explain it in words how lil Rafa, my lil boy make me and everyone in the family feel. I think its a feeling that only fathers and mothers can relate to.
