Malaysia Hates Valentine's Day

Postby Glahardt » Mon Feb 14, 2011 2:28 am

Since it made its way to Sankaku, I find it hilarious and that that it is my duty to spread the lulz concerning my home country.

And then some political bickering if you're interested.

They are to their country, what conservatives are to ours. I guess we are alike.

Yeah Indonesia is actually the wold's largest Islamic country.

But in Malaysia Islam is the official state religion, so it's an even bigger deal there.

Yeah but the southeast Asian Muslims actually treat Islam as a religion of peace, well with a few exceptions.

In Malaysia it's pretty much nothing but a political tool. Since long before the Brits came.

No surprise here. Muslims looked at it as a Christian holiday.

i'm actually looking into being in one of those tour groups that gets shown around
you can do that, but only in february and suit the following criteria:
>not american
>not a journalist
and as long as i don't bring any technology more advanced than a basic point-n-click camera for touristy snapshots i'll be fine

lol you'll see the good parts of north korea, i.e. the parts run by the military.

love the glorious beloved leaders and starve for them until the day you can become a soldier so you might have a chance to die for them, then you will get your bread noodles to feed your weak body so that it might be the instrument of the leaders' will.

a fascinating sort of hyper fascism under the guise of communism.

but yes, valentine's day is a Christian Holiday.

Quick! Think of some crazy ulterior motive where they would benefit from removing valentines day and make them the villans!
