Foreign Minister Being Questioned On BBC Hard Talk – Part 3, And My 2-Cents

Filed under: Issues, Thoughts — Yatz @ 4:43 am

Now, the final part of the BBC Hard Talk on Youtube where Malaysian Foreign Minister Dato Seri Syed Hamid Albar being questioned by Sarah Montague..

Nothing much discussed in the final part as it’s just a 3 minutes plus video clip..

Overall, inequality is always there, here in Malaysia..

It’s undeniable that a lot of Malaysians, notably Chinese chose to migrate to overseas to have a better living..

Although Chinese is still the lower community abroad, but they make money in a better situation..

A lot of Malaysians who study abroad, such as in UK or Australia, they chose to stay there permanently, if possible..

Yes, the food and holidays might not be as good as in Malaysia, at least they are happier there compared to be in Malaysia..

As for me, I love Malaysia a lot..Yes, truthfully deep down from my heart..Why so.?

Malaysia is somewhat a peaceful country..Malaysia is somewhat nature-disaster-free..

Malaysia has all the foods that you want..Malaysia is multi-cultural..

But then again, when I think about the people who govern the country, I felt rather disappointed..

They tend to govern the country with a mask..Who ever is on the upperhand, that’s the person where they stand behind and kiss his/her ass..

However, I have to say that if not because of Tun Dr Mahathir, Malaysia would not be what it is today..

He has done a lot to the development of Malaysia over the years of his leadership..

If not because of him, Malaysia might not survived from the 1997 East Asian financial crisis..

If not because of him, Malaysia might not have Petronas Twin Tower..

If not because of him, Malaysia might not have Sepang International Circuit (SIC) and Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KLIA)..

But just right after he stepped down from the leadership, everyone backstabbed him for his bad leadership..

People blame him for the mega projects I’ve mentioned..But at the same time, these critic-wannabes are enjoying the greatness of these mega-projects..

I don’t know where is the brain of these people..In the ass perhaps.?

On top of that, I absolutely love to hear speeches by Tun Dr Mahathir..Although his tone is quite mono-tone and slow-mo, but through his speech, he showed his greatness..

Unlike Pak Lah..His speech lacks of oomph, if you know what I mean..The content is there but there isn’t much power lies beneath it..

Honestly, under his leadership for the first 2 years, I’ve always forgotten that he’s the current Prime Minister..

And also for the same period of time, I’ve also forgotten that Dato Seri Najib Tun Razak is the current Deputy Prime Minister..I always remembered him as the Defence Minister..

Ministers aside, look at the development of Malaysia..Although with the help of Tun Dr Mahathir, our country is developing relatively slow compared to neighbouring countries..

You may give the reason that Singapore is small..Therefore the fast development of the nation..

What about China.? China is so damn big that Malaysia is equivalent to just a province in China..

But still, China is able to build the country by developing few provinces together..It’s a great success..

If given to China, they could have build Malaysia to at least 5 years advance than what we are now..

Look at our highways and roads and everything..It’s so fucking messed up..The road-planning is so fucked up, big time..

Insections to trunk roads are everywhere..The traffic congestion has never failed to upset people til the extent that we already accept it as a norm to live in Malaysia..

For all the highways available in Malaysia, there is not a single highway that is congestion-free at the peak hours..

So that’s why they called it the peak hours.?? Fuck that..

Federal Highway jam, MRR2 jam, Jalan Loke Yew jam, Sungei Besi Highway jam, Seremban Highway jam, Jalan Kuching jam, Damansara Utama jam..

There’s no end to it..Traffic congestion aside..Talk about road-signs and signboards..

Malaysia road-signs have never failed to impress Malaysians, let alone foreigners..

On a highway, the fonts on the signboards are as small as ikan bilis..How drivers are going to read that while driving.??

On dividers between highway and intersection to trunk roads, signboards are placed at least 50-100 metres from the starting point of the divider..

Should you take the wrong turning, that’s your problem..

Add up to the small fonts, Malaysia’s signboards fucked up big time..

Not only that, to reach a destination, let say from Cheras to PJ SS-whatever it is..

You follow the road-signs, yes you’ll never fail to reach the destination, but in the longest way..

They road-signs won’t guide you to the shortest route, but take you here and there, stuck in the traffic jam a bit here and there, the only you’ll reach the destination..

Well anyway, I rest my case here..There’s never-ending story if you want me to comment on the government..

Before that, hope that Tun Dr Mahathir will be recovered soon and have a peaceful happy life before the end of it..

My next post will be either a food post or another fucked up comment on the government..

Til then, have a nice day..



  1. Hahahaha..i like your post laa…This is a good one!! and i agree with all the statement that you had made.. Traffic jams laa sign board laa.. wait till you see sign boards in Negri Sembilan.. the sign that u follow is actually the longest way to reach anothers..Fucking waste my time..
    Sometimes i wondered, what’s wrong with Pak Lah? he’s not stern enough like Tun Mahathir..
    And how i wish if Tun Mahathir is still our PM.. Huhuhuhuhu 😦
