Model Nation #6: Some should say sorry to Prince, say Malaysian paper


Malaysia’s New Straits Times has asked the irresponsible media to apologize to the Kelantan Royal family.

In the meantime, here are some interesting questions posed by the ever-interesting Rima Fauzi:

– Why the hell did her mom willingly introduce her to a perverted grown ass adult man in the first place? (read subliminal message: cash cow.. kaching!) If I were a mother of a 14 year old girl, I’d leave my kid home to play with her girlfriends instead of bringing her to a Gala Dinner hosted by any Prime Minister, and even if I had to bring her, I’d politely refuse to introduce my baby to a 28 yr old man who wants to be her friend.

– How the bloody hell did her parents let her date Adrie Bakrie, a grown man, at her tender age of 14/15/16? (Again, read subliminal message: cash cow.. kaching!)

– How the fuck did a 16 yr old socialite from a “rich family” end up in a room somewhere alone with a perverted grown ass adult Malaysian man and end up getting raped? (where were her parents/bodyguard/guardian/babysitter?)

– Why wasn’t this teenage girl home playing with her friends or texting her girlfriends discussing how cute her highschool’s football captain is? It’s strange to see a girl this young mingling with adults all the time. Again, Where were her parents???

– WHY THE BLOODY FUCK did her parents let her marry her alleged RAPIST? (Alhtough to be fair her American dad reportedly did not agree at all with this. Glad to see someone still had common sense when it comes to pedophile marriages)

– Why did she not file for a divorce after fleeing her husband following the alleged abuse?? (or at least let her mom do it for her)

and last but certainly not least;

– Why is it that our media is so fascinated and will willingly report and condemn (Malaysian or otherwise) culprits of abuse when it comes to abuse cases that involves a BEAUTIFUL and high profile victim like Mano, but nobody bats an eyelash in abuse /rape cases done towards Indonesian domestic helpers/migrant workers? Are beautiful Indonesian socialites worth more than poor and not-so-goodlooking Indonesian villagers? If so, what have we all become??

APOLOGIES — at the very least — are called for. Having suffered several days of distressing but perhaps predictable reports in the Indonesian and Singaporean press and on the international wire services, it was the height of grace for Tengku Temenggong Tengku Muhammad Fakhry Petra and his wife Cik Puan Temenggong Manohara, the former Odelia Pinot, to issue not a word in response or protest but simply to appear together at the wedding of a family friend. Reports of her torture and torment, as graphically recounted in the regional media, clearly seem greatly exaggerated. While we would dwell no further on the Kelantan royal couple’s personal life, beyond hoping their continued happiness together will in time settle whatever unhappiness resides in others close to them, we cannot be so sanguine or hopeful over the erosion of reason apparently afflicting even the professional media these days.

    I have no idea what’s really going on between mano and her husband, but showing up in a wedding and parading as if everything is ok doesn’t mean everything IS ok.

    What I dont get is why was mano’s mom denied entry and why is it so hard for her to get in touch with her daughter.

    It’s all a mystery, but my questions remain valid, i think.

    Personally I’m more concerned in the fate of the thousands if not millions of our migrant workers in saudi, oman, qatar, malaysia etc (14 of which if i’m not mistaken are due for death penalty in saudi) but it’s evident the media and government do not share the same concern.

    Not to put too fine a point on it, but: Eyeballs … kaching! Pretty Indonesian female adbducted by someone who is Not Indonesian = salacious, breathless tabloid coverage = eyeballs. Horrendous as it sounds, abused domestic workers are a dime a dozen.

    I’d get into the NST’s response, but my eyes are dangerously close to getting stuck in the back of my head as it is.
