HOI! This post more interesting lah! Comment here better lah, don’t waste time in the later post.
Long time ago, in a land where the big Datuk bosses don’t read BM and the senior managers can’t do it, there lived a very mighty secretary who could. So, she ruled the universe because all correspondences had to be in Bahasa Malaysia. Letters to the Min. of Trade, (nay, that fat speckie never grow old Kak?) about protecting local manufacturers, letters to the PM about investment, letters to Mr. Samy and Mr. Leo (the Mins. in charge of power and telecommunication) and other big guns.
So, she went her merry way to draft all the letters in BM, after the Chairman and CEOs gave her the points. Life was fine. But the company grew and it needs pull-string connection (and not to mention the 30% quota of you know..). Then, a retired Gov. officer was hired. En. K who is so old and kerepot, nyanyuk but still a bachelor. En. K could be a bit gay but he did married off eventually. But he made sure the whole office knows how playboy he is. He is the most lecherous, disgusting, ugly man evarrr.
When the bosses want a major appeal letter to be written, they will ask this mighty secretary to draft it out and let En. K to translate. But En. K is like a tortoise and takes days to do so. It is just translation, KNN. The bodek and the tonggek parts have been nicely arranged by mighty secretary.
En. K’s was eventually threatened by mighty secretary that he will be reported for sexual harrassment. Kahkahkah. Below are some of the situations :
Go into En. K’s office, he will stare at the boobs because from the level he is sitting, it is eye level. If you ask him if he has finished the job, he will say, “Come lah, sit down and chat a bit first.”
En. K will suddenly turned work related talk into stuffs like “At night I am lonely, sebab Lilian tak dak.”
En. K will also suddenly make references to kulit gebu (smooth skin) from out of nowhere.
Now, on to the main title. Hahaha, sorry got to get that En. K out of my skin a bit. Because that’s all he was hired for. To write letters in Bahasa Malaysia. Not like I cannot write a decent one. Cis. I wonder if your offices have a lot of En. K who are hired for that purpose? Whole day sit down, do nothing but to do one simple task that takes days when we can do it in hours.
the Cabinet felt that reverting to the term Bahasa Malaysia would help inculcate a sense of belonging for all citizens irrespective of race, said Information Minister Datuk Seri Zainuddin Maidin.
Well, who gives two hoots whether it is Bahasa Melayu or Bahasa Malaysia lah. We need more to give us that sense of identity that we are one – united, muhibbah country. Language alone can’t do that. The damage has been done. Since TAR’s time until now, his predecessors have torn it so wide and the gaping hole is hard to repair now. What with the elegant silent current one who remained silent while the gaping hole keep rotting away….. Maybe he should follow TAR and go for horse racing? Hehehe.
