I was reading this. And well, I have to admit. I don’t speak Malay, I don’t really like the Malay language. But, I respect it as Singapore’s National Language. Its like its not Singapore without the Malay language, damn it, even our country’s name is Malay, in case you don’t know, Singa means lion in Malay.
I cannot understand, how can this dude here, forgive me but I cannot address him as Dr Yaacob Ibrahim due to his, for want of better word, idiotic proposal which makes me doubt his intelligence. Seriously, degrading our national language to a foreign language?! I cannot fathom how does degrading Malay to foreign language helps to halt decline in fluency, someone please enlighten me.
Oh yeah, the banning of chewing gums made Singapore a laughing stock, its like when I mention that I am from Singapore to my overseas friends in games or chatrooms, quite a number of them gave me the reaction of “Isn’t that the country which banned chewing gum?” If our own national language really got degraded to a foreign language, Singapore will definitely become the laughing stock of the world? Why? The reason is very simple: Being a country that DEGRADED THEIR OWN NATIONAL LANGUAGE INTO A FOREIGN ONE. LMAO
Talk about sense of belonging of Singaporeans to the country, pfft, I presume its for the half which are not born citizens. By the way, if my family and friends are not here, I would had lost all sense of belonging long ago. Ahhh, it has been so long since I rant that I totally forgot I opened this blog for ranting. And yes, I know my English sucks, please don’t flame me for lousy grammar or vocabulary or whatsoever. I just feel like ranting.
