Updated 11.20am – SHOW & TELL: how Bitter & Resentful sounds like, see Malaysiakini reader comments on Facebook, below (click ‘Comment’)
‘Bidding farewell to Malaysia‘, an article yesterday by Dina Zaman in TMI is hot trending – garnering 25,000 Facebook shares so far.
Dina writes about Daphne Lim and Saranee Joseph (not their real names) who surrendered their Malaysian citizenship amid our climate of race and religious tensions, and are now Singaporeans.

Daphne Lim is quoted by TMI columnist Dina as saying she is “glad to be rid of the political negativity in Malaysia”, and that renouncing her citizenship was “never an issue”, especially since the “opportunities and benefits” in the island republic are what she and her children can’t get over here.
Lim also told Dina, “I knew that one day, I would no longer be Malaysian”.
Joseph, meanwhile, noted that a few of her former classmates “had become bitter at not being able to fulfil their potential in Malaysia”.
Haters gonna hate
Isn’t it so much better to be honest and upfront about their burning desire to leave the country rather than pretending to be the most patriotic Bangsa Malaysia-Malaysian Firsters?
Yet some hypocrites like Hannah Yeoh can even make a 180-degree turn into Anak Malaysia (see her 3 Dec 2010 tweet below) after their own application for Permanent Residence (PR) in a foreign country – in her case, Tasmania Australia – was rejected.
Ubah – ini kali lah
Do tell me, what about Madame Speaker isn’t fake?
She pleads to the DAP vote bank “don’t lose hope. Don’t change ur country, change ur govt!” when she herself attempted to change her residency (leading to eventual citizenship) from Subang Jaya to somewhere in the boondocks of Australia.
Isn’t the truth of the matter that they’re always agitating for change – UBAH this and UBAH that.
Toxic people poisoning our country
But despite that the Dapster evangelistas want to up-end almost everything – particularly Articles 3, 152, 153 and 160 of the Federal Constitution – that make up the basic structure of Malaysia, Hannah still has the gall to declare most disingenuously to her twits “don’t change your country”.
When they’re unable to budge the pillars cemented into our constitutional foundation, these bitter Malaysians incessantly attack and tirelessly try to dismantle and tear down everything Malay and Islamic that is making them so resentful.
And then they turn around and accuse the majority population of being racist and extreme.
Well, since the evangelistas believe themselves to be super-talented and near geniuses (they claim that their departure would cause a “brain drain”), I’m sure that some Christian country somewhere will be willing to roll out the red carpet for them.
What the PMO’s TalentCorp programme is presently doing, i.e. offering carrots for the Dapsters to return, is a sheer waste of time and resources.
TalentCorp should instead help with the talent transfer and facilitate their relocation to the recipient First World – for a fee, of course. If TalentCorp is unable to reinvent its present business model, then I strongly suggest that the unit close shop.
