My life as a Malaysian doctor in the United States.
Tuesday, June 27, 2006
So, apparently expatriates don't want to settle down in Malaysia because they're all horny buggers, and want a 2nd wife, but Malaysian women are dissing them (see The Star). So instead of risking living a solitary life with only one mate, they live in Thailand and the Philippines instead, able to marry another (loose) woman and mate all the time.
So our infinitely wise minister tourism minister of Kelantan says.
Whoever he's paying to get his research done, should be shot. Or at the very least, have his balls basted in honey and made to sit on a kerengga anthill. It's embarassing, really, as a Malaysian, to have to read such nonsensical and backward words, coming from a community leader. I'm ashamed. And I'm offended for the women of Malaysia. Offended for the women of Thailand and the Philippines as his words imply they're 'easier to get'. Offended for expatriates who might be reading the local papers.
Me thinks that's just a convenient excuse. The truth is simpler. We turn people away by our bad and inefficient ways, red tape, corruption, discriminatory and otherwise backward thinking. Precisely the kinds of childish stunts these idiots pull.
Can we really move forward if we think like that?
Addendum: Do you know that the reason Malaysia has trouble attracting foreign-trained specialists to return is that us foreign-trained docs like to mate with 400 pound women with C-cup busts and wooden peg legs, and we'd rather not have to marry our regular-sized fully-limbed Malaysian women?
(there, now do I sound intelligent enough to be a politician? Maybe I should run for parliment)(obviously the last paragraph was meant to be facetious. In case I inadvertently offend anyone aside from the good tourism minister)
