This is the tow truck from the movie The Cars. The name is Tow Mater and is Speed McQueen bestest friend. With a goofy guy like Tow Mater, you sort of forgive those aggresive blue and green hairs Ah Bengs and believe that every tow truck operators are nice guys.
Chewah, penuh bergaya! Toddler is of course so thrilled to have a REAL tow truck towing our car away. He insisted to take his photos and even videos.
Another shot. Ok, those are the good vibes of the post today.
Now, the bad vibes. I happened to tune in to TV3 and watched the 8pm news. At first, they showed our ex-PM, Tun M. I listened to all that he said. It makes sense. Tun M said something like, though we may not believe, whatever he is doing, he is doing it for UMNO to save it from bad leadership.
Then……the interviews with all the Ministers, DPM and even a quote from one Sultan. “Kalau nak pencen, pencen sajalah. Buat apa bising-bising lagi.”
Doh! This is the first day of Hari Raya. It is about forgiveness. And respect. But we have young men kutuk-ing a leader that is not only respectable but senior as in old. Whatever happened to all those virtues that we Malaysians and especially Malays are taught? Hormat orang tua? These young men probably may not realise it but their characters are very harmful to our young generations. Imagine a small kid whom probably had been waving flags at every Commonwealth Game, Merdeka and etc, giving respect to [tag]Tun M[/tag]. Now, this kid is watching a very, very much young man kutuk Tun M and get away with it. What kind of message do you think the child will receive?
I don’t care much about the political side of things but I do care what kind of behaviours our children see on TV. We certainly do not want a generation of kurang ajars and ular dua kepala, do we?
