Malaysia in Headlines

Last year, Malaysia was named one of NME's 2005 cool places for being the bootlegging capital of the world. This time, Malaysia was in the NME news for wrong reason again.

I was browsing through the NME site, "Pussycat Dolls cause controversy in Malaysia" was spotted in the news section. Organisers of Pussycat Doll show had been fined 10,000 ringgits for flouting decency laws in our Bolehland. But the fine had been reduced by 50 percent for the organisers settled the fine early. I didn't know the Malaysia's annual Mega Sale carnival even covers legal fine. Now I wonder, are we citizens also entitled discount for the fine of losing ICs? If I turn in early for robbing/snatching, do I get discount too?

Pussycat Dolls pretty much dress and move the same level of 'indecency' in their videos, how come the video are getting considerably excessive amount of airplay on local TV without being labelled as sexually suggestive as suggested by our Minister on the show? Anyway, How could you expect six strippers who disguise themselves as singers/dancers dress decently according to our Minister's standards as in what Siti Nurhaliza would wear?

Just goes to show how hopeless we are, mate. Double standards are really dumb, but hey, that seems to be what the people like/want.

Screw it.

Exactly. Tsk, tsk.

Itu gomen, banyak hal. This sort of petty little things they fine people, and make a huge fuss, look at all the things that are going on everyday - the murders, rape cases, snatch theives, to name just a few - and what do we hear from them or see them doing anything about those? Nothing.
