Dewan Negara

I couldn't stop laughing when I read that the Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department had to actually defend the Perodua Kelisa, defiantly insisting that it is indeed a quality car, in the Dewan Rakyat, no less. All of this nonsense was in reply to an innocuous (to me, at least) comment by Jeremy Clarkson of Top Gear fame, who commented that "This (the Perodua Kelisa) is without doubt the worst car, not just in its category but in the world".
He (Deputy Minister) then added that Clarkson was a magazine columnist who not only criticised Kelisa but also other established cars such as the Lamborghini.

Dude. Chill la. Lepak aa, brader.
Typical of how of "leaders" totally over-react to something completely insignificant.
Can't we just laugh at ourselves, for once?

He should just take it all in good stride, after all, it is just one person's opinion. It's just an opinion. Everybody has one. Even himself. Did you notice the smart but unnecessary act of putting kelisa in the same line as Lamborghini? once a man starts, he just couldnt stop. im embarassed just thinking about it. Apparently when we say 'Malaysia Boleh,' we threw humility down the drain. But can you blame the Minister, he's just being defensive when it's expected of him. But i doubt that he'd buy the car himself just to prove a point...
