BETWEEN TAN SRI MICHELLE YEOH, ALLEYCATS AND FAUZIAH NAWI

COMMENT:
TAN SRI MICHELLE SHOULD BE WANITA MCA LEADER

Our Bond Girl should go for Wanita MCA chief!!! hehehe

She's got all it takes as a modern, vibrant, international and smart-thinking chinese lady. She potrays a leader in many ways.

If a happy multi-racial Malaysia is what we want to continue enjoy here, Michelle has all the flair to help BN achieve this. 

After all, most young chinese girls and ladies have alwys dreamed to be like her. A personality like MIchelle is the chinese that we want, moving forward to achieve modernisation, for the people.

It is not the chinese people but DAP (and gang) who is propagating unhapiness amongst we Malaysians!

Although Michelle Yeoh is well-known as an actress of western and Hong Kong films, her name is not on everyone's lips in the country, be it among the Chinese or Malay community. However, she suddenly became the talk of the town, be it at the cafe, kopitiam or the mamak shops,  following the conferment of the PSM award, which came with the title Tan Sri, on her by the Yang diPertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mua’zam Shah in conjunction with his birthday celebration last June 1.

People are happy talking about Michelle Yeoh's royal awards. She has been conferred the Datuk title (DPMP and SPMP) and then the PSM. The conferment of the Tan Sri title, perhaps, is because of her support for Barisan Nasional in the recent 13th general election. That was the conclusion perceived by many on Michelle Yeoh getting the award.
  
While I too am glad for the award bestowed on Michelle Yeoh for her contributions to the country, being among the 50 most beautiful women in the world and for her superb acting in films like James Bond, it crosses my mind Alleycat singer David Arumugam, who I recommended to be given the federal datukship, but went unheeded. However, he was later bestowed the datukship by the Pahang Sultan.

The contribution by Alleycat, especially David Arumugam, to the country`s music industry since 1970 was huge, having popularise Malay songs to Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia.

The band played for only three months in Hong Kong, but because their songs were a hit on the island, especially Malay songs, its contract was extended to more than three years.

Alleycats, formed in1969, has become a legend for Malaysian pop music and David Arumugam remained popular with songs like Sekuntum Mawar Merah, Sampaikan Salam, Suara Kekasih.

Besides being overwhelmed by the award to Michelle Yeoh, which is equivalent to the one bestowed on P. Ramlee, it brings to my mind a dramatist who cried when she met me.
When I was at a shopping complex in Damansara not long after I retired as a minister. She is Fauziah Nawi, a big name in the country's radio, stage and TV industry since more than 25 years ago.

I don’t know why Fauziah cried, but looking at her, I felt sad, thinking of how active and dedicated she has been to the industry, but until today, not a single award has been given to her by the country for her contributions.

As an artiste, Fauziah never feels sad, but she expressed in a blog on the recognition and appreciation given to her by Singapore sometime ago when she made a solo performance "Cinta Julia" at the Singapore Esplanade. The tickets were sold out a week before the show.

 "While in Singapore, what touched me was when I saw pictures of my aging face at the Esplanade and several other public places.

"Perhaps, some people will get angry when I say it, but that is a fact. Outsiders appreciate our art works more," she told journalists in Singapore.

 It reminded me of a song by P. Ramlee, "Dunia ini hanya palsu...." (The world is a fake).

  1. Salam Tan Sri...The Alleycats can be called ' Simon n Garfu nkel ' of Malaysia.They sing the same type of songs in their melancholic,rustic voices..always ending in their trade mark ' terima kasih '.When are they going to hold a ' concert rakyat ' ( low priced tickets ? )...instead of holding one at posh places like Genting Highlands...tq

  2. PM or his advisors still believe that they have to do something to win the Chinese again...

    What happen to the support & push by Isma, Jati, Persatuan Guru Pondok, Perkasa etc...Nothing.. simply because they are Malays & PM still wants to show that he is good for Chinese..

    Weak PM..

    Dia Melayu Elit. Isma, jati, Perkasa Persatuan Guru Pondok dll tu Melayu belacan tempoyak dan semua jenis Melayu kampong. Diorang tak boleh klik. Gunanya Melayu kampong ini adalah sebagai membagi undi saja. Bagi bau2an kambing panggang tu cukup ler. Daging malah tulang kambing tu utk disharekan oleh Melayu Elit dengan kaum tersayang mereka sicina2 semua tu. Cina kan kaum elit lagi liberal sesuai dengan citarasa Melayu Elit ni. Tak gitu Tan Sri?

  6. Saudara Zam,

    I have no qualms about the Sultans and Agong giving awards - Tan Sri, Dato' Seri, Datuk, etc. It is part of our Malay culture. But:

    1. Too many bintangs have been awarded every year, year in year out, to the point that the value of such awards has been diluted.

    2. People wonder why some receipients have been awarded with such high titles when their contributions to the nation or states is nothing to talk about. Business towkays who made good in their business venture gets Datukships. They are succesful and they make money for themselve, but of course the state benefits. Other people also contribute to the state but not recognized. It is commonly discussed in public that there are two types of Datukship - Datuk A and Datuk B - A for anugerah and B for beli.

    3. Some of these towkays and Datuks condemn "Institusi Raja Raja Melayu" but they are not shy to take the Datukship.

    I suggest the government should:

    1. Reduce the number of Datukships and Tan Sriships to be awarded each year. Imagine one Agong and thirteen head of states giving out awards every year.

    2. Choose only the deserving ones

    3. Cancell the Datukships and other titles given to those ungrateful ones, anti Royalty and those that "hina" raja kita. The Sultan of Selangor and Sultan of Johor have done that, so it is possible to do it. It is their rights of course but the government can advise.

    Salam
