The following have been a mere 2 examples of Malaysia’s f*-up fumbling in the international arena, where its Boleh-ness had been laughed at and disdainfully dismissed:
(1) Our Pasar Malam-ish stand at the World Expo in Shanghai – see Malaysiakini’s M'sia puts in 'pasar malam' effort at World Expo.
It didn't even have a Mandarin speaking Malaysian on duty there when it's known that the majority of visitors would be Mandarin speaking Chinese.
I can tell you there are at least 50 Melayu Malaysians who would be fluent in Mandarin, so if the Tourism Ministry doesn't want to use Chinese (Mandarin speaking) Malaysians, then they should have recruited Mandarin speaking Malays.
And the b* joke doesn’t stop there. Now Dewan Rakyat Speaker Pandikar Amin Mulia is no doubt deciding how to avoid a motion to refer Tourism Minister Ng Yen Yen to the Rights and Privileges Committee for allegedly misleading the House over the cost of the Malaysian pavilion at the Shanghai World Expo. It was RM35 million but she said it was only RM20 million. Maybe she couldn't count?
(2) Losing Pulau Batu Puteh to Singapore, where Free Malaysia Today published a damning indictment on the Malaysian legal team at the World Court, where they were ill prepared, had brazenly and shamelessly attempted to mislead the World Court and thus were made mincemeat by the Singapore legal team – read FMT’s Pulau Batu Puteh - a tale of miscalculated strategy.
Those clowns in the Tourism and Foreign Minsitries have been a national disgrace. They may be jaguh's in our kampungs but outside in the open world, they have been nothing more than jokers, clowns, jesters.
