1Malaysia???

This is a story of a man named Wel....a charming person :) and always calm until it explodes...

I was at the Penang Municipal yesterday afternoon to query about getting dog licenses (Husky and Biggy)..we never had one since Tankerina and it always make me worry whenever we let them out..who lets the dog out pula nanti persoalan dia...

I took the first step yesterday instead of wondering and worrying...I left home an hour earlier than I would usually do and drove straight to Penang Municipal..well, I did call my friend asking where can I apply for dog license in Penang before that though....

I arrived at the Penang Municipal, it was already 13:35...walked straight into the office towards the counter and I saw a tray with a signage "Dog License"...without hesitation, I took a piece of the form and read through its contents...applicable for only RM10 per annum and for dog over 3 months old...then came a Malay lady who asked me if I wanted to apply for dog license - Yes, I answered politely and smiled at her....she replied asking me to fill up the form and wait until 14:00 when the office resumes work...I noded and smiled at her again...she left the counter and I continued what I was doing earlier (read the form)

On the right hand side of that counter is a small partition of another counter and there was a Chinese lady who was leisurely sitting and enjoying her kuaci...I took 3 forms and walked to wards her counter then asked how to fill the form as it has 2 sections (top and bottom) with almost the same details and I was trying to get a confirmation if I were required to fill in details in both sections - Yes she replied. Then she began the interrogation...she asked me if I were Malay (I'm not Malay), asked if my religion were Islam (I'm Christian), asked if I were staying in an apartment or land house (Land-house)....she stopped asking then reminded me of Islam couldn't apply for dog license and will never be granted on any attempt...I reminded her I'm Christian again at this point yet I began to fell uneasy of her remarks at this time....she then asked me from where..I told her that I'm Sabahan....she was a little unsure and made a follow up question by asking me what am I doing in Penang, working?Study?...I replied to her politely, I work here in Penang...I was suprised when she replied me..oh, study....but I just keep it to myself...I then asked her if I need to prepare anything like copy of I.C along with the form...instead of replying to my question, she asked me if I have I.C?????? (Yes I have) another stupid question from her was...IC Malaysia?????? (Yes) and she asked if she could check my I.C...

I wished I could give her a brain wash at this time but Wel is a very calm man..and always be..hehe...I took out my I.C and showed it to her and smiled....with us in that room were 2 makcik and 1 pakcik..I noticed they were watching and listening to our converstation....she then asked where I stay in Penang (Sg. Dua nearby USM campus) then she guessed it correctly by saying I'm renting with other Sabahan...then she asked what I do in Penang...AGAIN??? This time I told her I studied in USM and is now working in Penang....whilst having a stupid conversation with her, I was texting with Jew at the same time (cerita pasal kebuduhan ni perempuan and lesen anjing) Suddenly she asked if I go to pray???What does it has to do with applying for dog license??? (Yes, I'm Christian; walau setahun sekali saja kali pigi church) Then I got the show stopper when she said...I thought Islam cannot have dog.....then another follow up question about Sabahan Malay...I told her in brief there's no Malay in Sabah..we are Bumiputras; KadazanDusun..there have plenty more like Bajau and Murut but there's no Malay in Sabah....once I've said that to her..I decided to end the conversation by saying I will come back later this afternoon when the office has resumed work....she sempat lagi check if I fill up the form correctly (I only fill up the house address) then she kind of reprimanded me and asked why I didn't fill up my name etc...I told her I will fill them up later before coming back this afternoon...before leaving, I smiled at her and thanked her for her "kindness"...

I think, she was just trying to do her job as counter girl...being helpful and being fussy perhaps...I left the office and smiled at the others in the room who were captured into our conversation....

Are we Sabahan ever think of Peninsular as an outsider?? As if Sabah is Malaysia and Peninsular isn't part of Malaysia??

This is utterly bullshit...Do we need to have more adverts on TV (and every where along the road) to show people all over Malaysia that Singapore (now out)+Sabah+Sarawak+Peninsular=Malaysia since 16 September 1963 (postponed from 31 August 1963 due to objection from Philippines and Indonesia)

*Sabah attained self-government on 31 August 1963

Kalau mau meradang cara calm, sy akan bagi dia sindiran cukup2 tu for being that stupid and ignorant.

Atau sy boleh meradang cara not calm and give her the lesson of her life. Org mcmni kadang2 tunggu sja kana marah satu kali baru dorang sedar kebodohan dorang ba tu.

Sy heran masih ada org begini actually zaman skg. With all the info the can get...masih lg buli buduh mcm tu katak betapuk di bwh tempurung..teda sda tempurung skg so betapuk di celah2 tayar buruk kali...org2 gni mo kana cakap, lain kali bukan sibuk mau p melancong p luar negara sja..cuba2 la p sabah sarawak tgk negara sendiri mcmna. tgk sy meradang sda di awal pagi. bodoh punya ppuan cina.

"How long have u been in Malaysia?"
"Sabah ada lg rumah atas pokok ka?"
"Your place got highway ka?"
"Korg punya IC sama tak ngan IC kitorang kat sini?"
Adalah antara soalan2 yg besa ditanya oleh segolongan org semenanjung yg naive.
Mungkin soalan2 ni patut masuk dlm exam Sejarah - PMR. (tingu sepa gagal masuk form 4)
And to mass media, cukup2lah kasi tingu gambar2 org hutan, rumah panjang dan org2 sabah yg berpakaian tradisional...kasi tinguk la gamabr2 kami yg moden ni. Sebab bukan org hutan n baju sumazau jak yg kami ada d Sabah. Kami juga ada Waterfront Esplanade, Burger King, New York New York, Yayasan Sabah (a modern marvels that stands on a single column) dan 'bakakuk' (senapang buatan sdri ... kami bukan memburuh pakai sumpit..bongok...itu cerita tahun 1400 masa Parameswara baru belajar mendayung p Temasek). Btw, they can be funny-goofy sometimes...
