This is a snippet from Rocky’s Bru, a blog that used to speak its mind, but now seems to be channeling the UMNO establishment. Whenever Unspun looks at the statements that people like Khairy make, Unspun can’t help wondering if people like them have been born int he worng country.
Shouldn’t they be latinos or something with more machismo than brains. How he expresses an idea is totally skill-less and totally unable to state an opinion, no matter how valid, without taking that extra step to aggravate the persons it is directed to.
Perhaps Khairy and Rocky should come and tell the Indonesians here what they have in their minds?
I’m glad our government has made its concern known about the safety of Malaysians in Indonesia as a result of this bamboo-stick nationalism. And as much as I don’t like to agree with Khairy Jamaluddin, I think he’d said out loud in his usual fashion here what I’m sure a lot of us feel like telling those Indonesians in their face.I’m glad our government has made its concern known about the safety of Malaysians in Indonesia as a result of this bamboo-stick nationalism.

In The Star today…
Ong Hock Chuan, a former journalist who is residing in Jakarta, described the threat by the group as isolated.
“Most Indonesians are not fussed by this issue.
“I am fairly high profile here but I never received any threats. In fact, some Indonesians have told me that they are embarrassed by the actions of their fellow citizens,” he said.
Yup, In Kalimantan here we don’t even know what the fuss is all about. But yeah, KJ is just out to score political points. Now HE embarrasses me… often without even trying. 🙂
Dunno what our gomen can do to counter this PR-wise tho’… but KJ ain’t helping that’s for sure…
a drowning man will try to clutch a straw..
for the keh jeh fella who is drowning politically, any excuse to keh jeh-
say any crap that can bring some hope of visiblity -will do just like the straw
to the drowning man.
can he be pm?
nah- he is more welcome at tampoi or tr
the other moron son of kutty – he is well advised to
keep away from mumbling something that will
give clue to people that he is a veritable idiot!
can he be pm?
nah- he should be driving around the sepang race track
until his car crashed out -hopefully he will craoked thereat…
i hope this whole thing doesn’t escalate because of political opportunists like KJ snatching a chance to get political mileage.
it’s time leaders of both countries sit down together to identify and address the real cause(s) of the rising resentment in recent years and take concerted measures to bring back amicability between people of both nations for the sake of friendship and peace in the region.
the media, including popular bloggers, should do their bit to correct uninformed perceptions and other misconceptions among the populace of both nations and not add fuel to the sparks.
p.s. personally, i think this whole thing is a bloody nuisance as i love indonesia and indonesians and have great admiration for both because, like most malaysian malays, i trace part of my roots there.
this remind me …of my mum tell me..don t wear a hat bigger then yr head…i noticed our umno politicians talk through their nose…k j seemed so desperate to stay visible..dont tell those indonesian what to do…when they go to damai n start peeing..malacca will sink…
UMNO youth itu tidak beda jauh sama FPI kalau di Idonesia. dua- duanya punya persamaan
aiyo… now latinos have no brain to you\….
I think the present argument between Indonesians-Malaysians v.v are getting us nowhere, and very shameful.
Considering Unspun knows a lot about Indonesian & Malaysian bloggers, I wonder if he help to cool things down by establishing a healthy communication between bloggers of both countries . Just a thought.
Careful, you might be offending some Latinos/Latinas 🙂
@Michel: you’re right. Am rewording it to take out the potential offense.
Unspun, it seems you are just like many other Indonesians who, without verifying the facts, immediately hold Malaysians guilty for the purported stealing of pended dance.
If an IT savvy and educated person like you also failed to restraint yourself prior to confirming the facts, I see no hope for those mindless thugs with sharpened bamboos.
@E.G: I am a Malaysian who’s lived in Indonesia for the past 13 years. My origins are easily accessible on the web so when it comes to verifying the facts you might want to recall the adage about casting the first stone…
It is “pendet” not “pended” dance. Not in this posting but in another I spoke about the perception that Malaysia stole the pendet dance. This is factual – the perception, the reality is something else.
Unspun, I stand corrected. My apologies then.
