But in the good old days, during the interview session, it would be quite common for the beauty queens to be asked, if they could wish for anything, what would their wish be?
The cliche answer would be stuff like "world peace", "end suffering", "end hunger" etc. Answers which sounds good, but have no substance.
Lulu's PM also sounds very "Miss Universe" in addressing issues.
Addressing the 62nd UN General Assembly
On climate change
“The course of human history is marked by a few pivotal moments, during which we can make the correct or wrong decisions that will impact on the destinies of those who come after us,” Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said.
There must be a will to moderate mankind’s excesses using science and technology as tools, the Prime Minister said.
“The time for us to invest in our collective future is here and now.”
It sounds so correct, and so profound.
But try telling that to the people who live in Ulu Klang, and also to the protectors of what used to be Bukit Cerakah.
That's a Miss Universe respond, isn't it?
Abdullah said Malaysia disapproved of Myanmar's violent crackdown against pro-democracy protestors.
“Let me express my country's disapproval, together with other Asean countries, on the use of excessive force by the Myanmar government to put down justifiable civilian protests.”
It sounds so correct and so profound.
Now try telling it to the folks at Batu Buruk, and also the people of Burma who are now being told that Asean will never suspend Burma, says M'sia
and yet another Miss Universe response
on keeping our children safe - the Nurin murder
To keep children safe from danger, the Prime Minister has suggested that a single session for schools be implemented.
Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi said this would mean students starting school as they were doing now and ending at 4pm.
wow! What a brilliant profound solution... except that 1. we don't have the infrastructure to support single session, and 2. most people actually work [unlike him and his sil] and do not finish work before 4pm. Even his government servants dont get off work by then.
Yup! Yup! definetly a Miss Universe contendor.
Some people call it No Action Talk Only, others call it cakap tak serupa bikin. Lulu calls him a misplaced Miss Universe contestant.
He has had many, many more answers and response ala Miss Universe. Lulu has to go back to work, else she would look up for more.
Care to add to the list?
