Why do we keep getting famous for this kind of issue?
On 25 February, a netizen named Farid took to Facebook to share how there were some Malaysians who allegedly vandalised a historical place in Japan, by leaving their names on a piece of bamboo. Aduh…
Here’s the brief translation of the Facebook post.
“We have yet to get over the heart-wrenching incident of Malaysian teens pooping in the shower, and here comes another issue of Malaysians carving their names on a bamboo at Arashiyama Bamboo Grove in Japan.”
FYI, the Arashiyama Bamboo Grove located in Kyoto, Japan has been listed as one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites and it is an extremely popular photographic site in Kyoto. Well, it’s no surprise, just look at these scenic views!
Which is why it’d be such a shame for us if these individuals – Hafiz, Zura, Mia, Dhiya and Niyaz – are indeed Malaysians. Apparently, they left a ‘parting gift’ there on 18 February 2018 when they visited the place.
Well, we wouldn’t be surprised if they’re actually Malaysians because vandalising public property has unfortunately become part of our culture (as much as we hate to admit it, we know it’s partially true!). Just take a good look at the rocks near waterfalls and the interior of public buses.
However, after the post went viral on Facebook, some netizens reckoned that these vandals may not even be Malaysians.
“Are we the only ones who use these kind of names? Indonesians, Arabs, Singaporeans, and Bruneians also use them as far as I know,” a netizen said.
“Even if they are Malaysians, we won’t accept them as part of us because they’ve embarrassed us,” another Facebook user said.
As the saying goes, leave nothing but footprints. Let’s uphold our country’s reputation by being well-behaved when travelling overseas. Also, we certainly hope those names don’t belong to our fellow Malaysians.
