Rotten Tomatoes says...........!

A Minang boy Riza Aziz (right) rubbing shoulders with Hollywood...well done!

I was curious as to the brouhaha involving the "son" of "Tun Razak" who now joined the rank of Hollywood powerful movie producers.  And buying expensive apartment in New York so I Googled.
Well it turned out to be true except the "son" is Riza Aziz who is actually the son of the wife of the prime minister of Malaysia Rosmah Mansor's from her first marriage. 
This makes him the step-son of Prime Minister Najib Razak, and he is also very close to his step father. Riza, a very smart guy I was told, studied oversea and then later became a banker and now a Hollywood movie producer.
I don't know about you but when ever I see a successful Melayu who made a name for themselves I am very proud.
When Yuna became a celebrated name within the North American music industry and who has appeared in many famous US talk show  I said "well done".
Wait up, before you morons accused me of being pro--Malay, you wrong I am also very proud when Michelle Yeoh became an international movie star and  Jimmy Choo made a name for himself for making exclusive woman's shoes even the late Princess Diana adored his inventions.
No, I am proud of Riza because there are not that Malays that have become the world major players in many influential fields.
So when Malaysians just want to be negative without even giving Riza a whole credit of being a successful Hollywood  movie producer I think its unfair. Even the Malays are falling for chauvinist Chinese and chauvinist non-Malay Malaysians' negative propaganda to down play Malays' achievement and endeavour...now this to me is very, very sad.
You know what they say about the Malays having the highest holders of PhD...which stand for Perangai Hasad Dengki...it appears the Malays are the most easily dissuaded lot that they even  easily believe their enemies' propaganda to destroy their own race.
So what if Riza can afford to buy an expensive apartment in New York he probably works for it using his grey matter!
For the Melayus and Malaysians, we all should be proud of his achievement.  Let us acknowledge that!  Oh yeah! BTW how many of us Melayus can say " I know LeonardoDi Caprio and Martin Scorcese personally!" Do you?
