We LOVE Sabah, No Matter What You Say.

I was going to make a post of the Biggest Loser challenge at the office but it all changed when i saw how big the topic of a guy with the name Luca Lucas condemning Sabah on Facebook. One click led to another, i reached a facebook page called 'KAMI BENCI LUCA LUCAS KERANA MENGUTUK NEGERI SABAH' (TRANSLATION: we hate Luca Lucas for condemning Sabah)

This is what i first saw last week but i didn't really gave much attention to it. I thought, ahh this guy just wants fame, this will go out in no time.



Today, i was sent a link again. This time to this one:



Is he an idiot or what? he dare say Sabahan doesn't use standard BM? Excuuuuuuuse me. We Sabahans say the most proper BM. Let's go back in time. Waaaaaaayyy back when we were in Standard 1. Did the teacher said S-A = SA, Y-A = YA.. SAYA or S-A = SA, Y-A = YE.. SAYE? Who is using the standard BM here? If SAYA is supposed to be pronounced as SAYE, im sure we all (Sabahans) would've known and be speaking Saye instead of Saya. I'm not saying the usage of BM in the East of Malaysia has no standard, no i am not saying that. I have no objections whatsoever to slangs. But that doesn't give the right to that idiot for saying our BM has no standard.

And about him saying Sabah has nothing except Mount Kinabalu, Sipadan Island, Mabul Island... hello? doesn't he know Mount Kinabalu is the highest mountain in all Southeast Asia? Does Johor have a mountain? NO. Sipadan Island is also one of the top five best dive spot in the world (as voted by divers all around the world). IN THE WORLD! A world-renouned oceanographer, the late Jacques Costeau have also described Sipadan Island as 'untouched piece of art'. Does Johor have any of these? NO. Mabul Island also is reputed to be one of the best places for underwater macro-photography in the world. Again, IN THE WORLD!

You see? although Sabah has been said to be the 2nd pooorest state in Malaysia Sabah is still a world-class state. Tourist come here for the tropical islands, lush rain forests and her majesty, The Mount Kinabalu, something that can only be found in Borneo.

I also came upon one user of Facebook who claims to be as Sabahan but hates her own State. She even said it proudly. This what makes me embarrassed to be in the same country as these people. There are more of what have been said about not just Sabah but the people living here but i'm not going to mention because they are embarrassing and a waste of time to write it. They think they're better than us but anyone with a good mind knows that they're not.

They are SCUMBAGS.
