Are we a joke?


While the sporting community continue to debate over the debacle which saw weightlifer Arrico Jumith powering his way to the gold medal in a Sabah outfit at the Commonwealth Gamesin New Delhi, the author who is stuck in KL got the opportunity to catch up on some latest tv series.

There's Modern Family, Weeds, Breaking Bad and the list goes on. But Eddie David of Borneo Ink recomended the latest pilot episode of Hawii Five-0.

Malaysia was mentioned - as an illegal transit point.

Desperate Housewives also saw KL being mentioned. It wasn't something very nice.

But if one is a positive thinker, you could say that Malaysia and KL were marketed to a global audience without a single Ringgit spent.

Maybe this is an option our ever generous Tourism Ministry - who many claimed pumped in RM10 million into the recently concluded ATP 250 Malaysian Open - could consider.


My thoughts were published in The Malay Mail today.

: Need to catch up on South Park and Simpsons. Will be on the look out for more banters and parodies involving Malaysia.
