I was doing my prefect's duty yesterday when I came across this boy prefect. He's quite into the Malaysian entertainment industry. We always talk 'bout the up and down's of the industry together. I watched Puteri Gunung Ledang the musical already and I told him it was so freaking nice that he should go and watch it if he has time.
And he's reply was, "I don't want-lah since it's a Malay production." I was shocked by his answer. I didn't know that a boy from a top class can think in such a shallow way. Fine, if you don't want to see it 'cause it's a Malay production, think in a way that is a Malaysian production since there were various races involved in the making of it.
I came across this person once who thought as shallow as the boy did. I was showing her a picture of a Chinese actor on a newspaper. I asked her, "Hey, he's cute. Don't you think so?" She replied, "Eewww! A Chinese with a squinted eyes??? Of course not!!!"
I didn't know that there were so many people out there who are still shallow in their thinking. I thought that since we live in a multi- racial country we tend to respect each other more and think with an open mind.
But I was wrong.
