Reason, well for one the Malay drama is very depressing, where women are being subjected to the whims and fancies their macho-baloney Malay male, usually husbands or boyfriends. The men like to hit their women and make them feel guilty! Why all these, I don't know, may be it is that Malay culture where men always feel inferior about themselves and can only show their frustration toward their wives or children.
Malay society to me has that extreme spectrum: it is either like that sad Malay drama or movie, or like that sad, sad f"forced happiness" Akademi Fantasia (AF). I know I am treading on thin ice here when mentioning AF, since this is sadly the most watched program, but more so why this need to be told.
But I hate it when we try to mimic, to seed the host who think in his mind that he is Ryan Seacrest, to see Fauziah Ahmad Daud trying to be like Simon Cowell, or Ida erina trying to be like Paula Abdul and the other guy trying to be like that black guy all speaking Malay language with an American Nuance, well I feel very very sad.
It is as tough there is this very big humongous conspiracy to make the Malays look like they do not deserve to have a country to govern, let alone to have a political clout. They can only do bad dramas and movies or force them to be lulled with program such as AF. I cringed every tine I caught a glimpse of the AF program.
The other day at Hulu Bendol I was having lunch with my brother-in-law and all of the Malay patrons were watching AF and eating at the same time, and they were so enthralled by it.
Then there is this program Raja Lawak, and after sampling it I am actually quite ashamed to be a Malay. Now I am more doubly ashamed to be a Malay when I saw a front page of a tabloid Kosmo with a story of a pathetic looking Malay man (and also ugly) surrounded by his three wives, announcing that all three have agreed for him to have a fourth one. Other Malay dailies including the NST, also carried this pathetic story.
It is as though the Malays can only do bad Malay drama, or to marry more than one or to have television programs only to make them look really really bad.
You the Umno led government, are you aware that all advertisements be it on television or print, have depicted Malays as morons, sorry to use the word.
There once was this Nescafe advertisement where a Malay driver took his Chinese boss, well dressed as usual, stop at a coffee shop and while the Chinese boss was so cultured and civilized when sipping his coffee, the Malay driver was pouring the spilled coffee from the saucer and then slurped his coffee, yes slurped, then the scene showed a cute daughter of the Chinese coffee shop owner rolled her eyes in disgust. To me the Malay guy looks bad to the eyes of the watchers and the Chinese guy and the girl, well you can make up your mind.
Then there is this DHL commercial. There was this traffic jam, where a big and tough and fit Chinese driver was told by his radio operator to take an alternate route to send the package and when two Indian drivers at his back saw this they followed him driving into a Malay village with an old lady sweeping the yard and chicken panicking!
The verdict is the Malays, as shown by the Malay lady sweeping, as usual are oblivious to their political surrounding. In so far as the advertisements are concerned, and as far as I am concerned, they show the Malays as just a bunch of idiots. You Umno people and Umno led government be aware that as Malays you are also affected by this "conspiracy" to make Malays like you to look like idiot and moron!
I rest my case!
My conclusion is: Malay men like to control, to beat up their wives and girlfriends as shown in Malay dramas, and they love to mimic the American Idol, and the sad part is this Umno-led government allows it as though they do not care about the image of the Malay race. And that a big humongous conspiracy to paint Malays in a bad and idiotic light is has not dawn upon their leaders so to put a stop to it. Datuk Shabery Cheek this one is for you if you are really different from the rest!
P.S. My grand-nieces are not allowed by their parents to watch Malay drama and AF, or Raja Lawak, to start with!
