I had to stop somethin' leakin' south of my bellybutton when I read the following (found on Malaysiakini & reproduced for viewing on MT)
It would seem that some of our (il)luminatis may have suspect higher degrees include "Deputy Speaker of Malaysia Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar with his PhD from American from the Southern California University for Professional Studies in 2005."
You guys just have to read it yourself. Does this shock me? No...oooooo.
I dunno what air we have in Asia but face & titles are more important than some stupid values like humility & honesty. Buying a PhD doesn't give you brains, or get you more respect. You just THINK it does because you are deaf & can't hear the howls of laughter behind your back. I would include all those Honorary Doctorates in this category.
Unless you are Nelson Mandela & you earned the Honorary Doctorate the hard way!
Back to some other bizarre stories I know
You Msians should know this one well.
This muka story are all those instant Datins you see. On a good hair day when I enter a shop sometimes, I become an instant Datin.
Or you meet some big shot Datuk & he has this floosie with him & you are forced to greet him. He is Datuk & she is ???
Just call her Datin lah. Because if she didn't want to be recognized as Datin, she surely won't be with the toad in the first place. Get the Drift?
Then there is this one:
A certain hairdresser "changed" her face, caught her rich cat, married him, & became Datin. But when her family showed up, ppl started wondering "aiyoh! she looks so different fr her parents"
So Datin had her parents go under the knife, do the chemical peel, the laser, wrapping the body & hands in avocado so that they will resemble her more closely.
Now she & her entire family has literally lost all of their old friends because you can't have the world saying "HAIYAH! I knew them before they had a new face!"
Which shows you how wrong she was. The whole world is saying that anyways.
Then there was someone I met at an event where all of us had to wear our name on a label. But this lady stood out by far because she had to use TWO labels. Her name was "Dr. Mrs Mohammed Al-Fatish Leila Mansouri Kazam" Or something long like that
Dr MRS ? Does that mean she is the Mrs of the Doctor or she is a Mrs who is a Doctor? Turns out she was the former. So if you are the wife of a Doctor who is a Datuk, do you become Datin Dr ???
And if you are a Doctor, and your husband is also a Doctor like Siti Hasmah, should her full title then be "Puan Seri Dr Mrs Dr Siti Hasmah"?
Aweso....oommme Baby! I LOVE MY COUNTRY !!!!
