The extraordinary?

I am so pissed off with the recent conferment of Datukship to several people. Is it true Datukship is so easy to get? Nowadays, if you want to be a Dato' or Datuk the fast way, do something extraordinary. Extraordinary? I dun think so.

Lee Chong Wei - Won a silver medal at Beijing Olympic. It's only a silver for God's sake! Even if he wins gold medal, does that mean he's so extraordinary? He's not even the current world no 1. He was one back in 2006, but I didn't think it's long enough to boast about. And hey how about Razif/Jalani/Rashid Sidek? They also won silver/bronze medals in Atlanta Olympic. Also Misbun Sidek for being his coach. I mean, he won't be there without Misbun's guidance, would he?

Dr Sheikh Muzaffar Shukor - Astronaut. Is he? People have been labeling him just as a space tourist. He didn't do anything extraordinary to me. Playing gasing on zero gravity is extraordinary meh???

Malik Mydin - Swam across the English Channel.

And a few other singers n actors

I mean, seriously, what are their contributions to the country?

However, the exception goes to Nicol David. For me, she really deserves it because as our PM always say, she's the example of 'Cemerlang Gemilang Terbilang'. Maybe she's too young to get it, but takkan nak tunggu orang tu mati baru nak honor dia kan?

And regarding Lee Chong Wei's pension, other people work all their life serving the government to earn a meager pension. And he walks away with rm3k pension per month just by being a silver medalist. Maybe the government is being too generous here.

But at the end of the day, it's rezeki masing2 kan.. So let it be lah.

But this phenomena gives me a new insight, maybe I should resign my permanent job and become a sportswoman or a singer/actress.

Your First Name of: Siti
This name gives you a musical, artistic nature and you would do well in any occupation in the entertainment field.
