Sometimes, honestly, I am so done with Malaysian overseas students who suddenly feel they are entitled to wax pseudo-intelligent opinions to the world about Malaysia’s shortcomings, from the comfortable confines of their adopted home pads and now four season weathers, because they’ve seen and supposedly experienced what the supposedly greener grasses are like.
It never fails to amuse me, one to four years overseas and suddenly wow, this is so lame! That is horrendous! This is unacceptable, that is a failure! I see their credentials from Oxbridge and the Ivy Leagues and whatnot, but y’know? As much as your résumé is impressive, it is character that makes a person. When I was 17 I might’ve absent-mindedly take everything in, but thankfully I am now almost 23, and I’ve experienced firsthand some of what’s written and expressed.
Please dear sir and madame, your wit and fluidity with language, your coherence – with knowledge comes responsibility, with opinions come action. Of all the ways to channel your strengths, you choose to condemn and whatnot? There is truth, and then there is slander; learn the distinction. Yet there you go, writing for the people. What people? What is the point of being so great and advanced, but it is you, only you, and people who are similar to you?
Please, here – have some humble pie.
(& while you’re at it? Cut the crap too, thanks)
