Hooray! Malaysia Sets Another Record!

Jubilant news indeed from Bernama. Should make each and everyone of us delirious with pride and great satisfaction. The glorious achievement by these record-setting heroines (and a few heroes) gives real meaning to our national slogan of patriotism - "Malaysia Boleh!"

A total of 8,571 people, mostly women, took part in the Muhibbah Dance Fiesta at Dataran Merdeka here Sunday, breaking the old record of 7,325 people set in 2003. The event was launched by the deputy prime minister's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, to show the solidarity spirit of Malaysians and to add cheer to the country's 50th anniversary of independence celebrations.

It was organised by the Malaysian People Dance Association and non-governmental women organisations with the support of the Culture, Arts and Heritage Ministry.

The fiesta made it to the Malaysia Book of Records (MBoR) for having the most people dancing at the same time for over an hour.

The certificate of recognition was presented by MBoF official Faridah Hanem Ab Rashid to Women, Family and Community Development Ministry Parliamentary Secretary Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun.

Deputy Finance Minister Datuk Dr Ng Yen Yen who chairs the organising committee, said the dancers were trained by coaches from the Culture, Arts and Heritage Ministry since January.

***** To all those who participated and earned Malaysia pride of place in the MBoR, I say SYABAS! So what if we can't be world beaters in gymnastics or swimming? We have shown that we can dance our way to fame, if not fortune. In the complicated field of mass dancing or even mass hysteria, we truly have no peers!

It's both sad and tragic...our hopeless leadership has this psychological habitual orgy to celebrate for the wrong reasons and creating frivolous tactics to glorify themselves politically to orgasm. Why not overcoming our drug addiction problem to zero or clean the streets of crimes. Even if defeated it's still a noble effort. If successful, it's REALLY a record for celebration and achievement, if not just the effort alone.

Shit! dancing all night is an achievement. You derserve these people you elected.

There it goes again, achieving meaningless record at the expenses of public fund, time and manpower!!

How many official working days had they spent to organise such dance? Yet they said the public holidays are too few and their pays are too low...

When come to work, what record have they broken?
