agak2 ar en, negara yang serba cantik, serba moden, pelbagai budaya tu hampa tak tau? mana buleeeh, ini tak buleyh jadi nie. ( ala2 fathi bercakap)
ye benar. hakikatnye memang ramai lagi foreigners yang tak tau pasal malaysia. even some thought that malaysians still live on trees and cook in bamboo.
well NO.. we have these big 5 story bukit jelutong bungalows, skyscrapping condos and we also use the stove and microwaves ok..
we are not THAT pathetic!
but what could i say, people say what they believe and they believe what they see, and if they have never seen what malaysia is ,so what is there to believe in and what is nice to say about right?
but takkan kite nak biar diorg pandang sebelah mate jer kat kite en,
there was this one story told by an officer in jordan.
it was his first visit here and he was actually toured around jordan itself,
so after bringging him to the historical and tourism places here, they than brought him to jordan's biggest mall, the city mall .
when they were wondering around in the mall, they came across the escalator.
so the arabian guy said, do you know what this is? and before the officer could answer he said, this is an escalator or moving stairs. it is amongst the earlist in the world.
oooh peleeeasssseeeeee, billion supermarket yang cikai kat lumut tu pon ade la weyh..
stereotypes are actually seeded in the minds of these narrow minded
people, to them when you say the word MALAYSIA, a picture of the rainforest just pops in sight and they imagine that young lads would be running around with their tarzan like underwears where the ladies just wearing weaved clothes from the tree vines and the children playing with worms while their father build houses on strong hallow trees??
adoyai.. stereotype la cik org oversea ooii..
malaysia is more than anyone can imagine, malaysia is diversed,
malaysia is truely the essence of asia.
so thats why i think that events like malaysia day is a perfectly practical way to introduce malaysia to the eyes of the world.
actually malaysia is well known already especially amongst the G8 developed nations , but it just seems that these developing nations are the ones that do not have the same exposure about what malaysia is all about.
so during the malaysian day 2009, the students of jordan were given a task to potray to the whole world regarding the diversity of culture and the wonderful tourism destination in malaysia.
it kicked of with a fantastic dikir barat performance by the east coast region. followed up with some nasyid , malaysian wedding culture and silat so on so on so on and so on. secara konklusinya banyak ar aktiviti dalam dewan yang diorg pamerkan haha. yang paling best video promo malaysia. arab bukan main lagi tepuk tangan tengok video nie. terpegun diorg tgk malaysia sampai
walau pape pon aku tetibe jer rase bangga aku dak malaysia.. haha tetibe cam nyesal lak study oversea. malaysia punya la cantik tapi smpai sini baru nak hargai. dulu kat malaysia tgk iklan cuti2 malaysia wat bodo jer siap tukar channel.
kat sini aku nak kongsi sikit la satu video yang aku rase bangga sangat jadi rakyat malaysia nie haha
sooo to those yang rase tak best dok malaysia.
KAMO0O0 ORG SALAH! HAHAHAHA
