National Toilet Summit
Some 'very important people' recently held a National Toilet Expo and Forum in a SHOPPING MALL, organized by the 'Quality Restroom Association'. OK, gimme a break. It is quite an embarrassment when your VIPs have to organize trivial events like this to teach their people how to use the toilet properly. What a joke. And where is this held at? At a friggin SHOPPING MALL! Why? because that's where you'll find your citizens :(
Being a Malaysian, when I see articles like this in the news, I feel disappointed and embarrassed and sad. I don't hate this country. I want to love this country but sometimes you gotta give me something to love. We at tihtahpah don't hate this country. We're just disappointed and frustrated. We're frustrated because we feel powerless. We are scared. Scared that the country's not gonna make it far. Well, I'm tellin ya, we ain't gonna make it when the gov is engrossed in teaching their people basic toilet etiquette! That's just sad. And we're not talking about a poor country where people couldn't afford to eat or go to school. We're talking about a healthy developing country with a good education system to cover the population. It's just damn disheartening to see these 'educated' people stuck in barbaric mentality. We can see what's holding us back but there's nothing we can do about it, except to vent it here, hoping to open the minds of even the tiniest fraction of the society.
It's a sad day :(
