Lulu Cis-Cis Some Pretentious Dungus

In his suit, GGMM pro-tem committee member, Nik Rizman said he felt obliged to stop the authorities in Penang from "belittling the official status of Bahasa Malaysia".
Malaysiakini Multi-lingual signboards: Penang gov't says it has prerogative

Lulu thinks he should go after UMNO.
UMNO is the acronym for United Malays National Organisation.
Hey Nik Rizman, That's English!!!
Isn't UMNO like the main [or in their eyes, the only] proponent of Malay nasionalism?
Why are they still using a name based on the language of the conquerors who held them in shackles?
How can......
Tak malu-ah???

Cis-cis Encik Nik Rizman
Cis-cis Gabungan Graduan Melayu Muda (GGMM)

Maybe it's time you clean up your own backyard before you go cucuk-ing childish fights elsewhere.

As for your lawsuit against the Penang state government to erect multi-lingual signboards, Lulu hopes you don't just lose, but also have to pay costs. 10 top notch lawyers have signed up probono to defend the case. Lulu hopes that the probono-ness means they dont bill the state government, but can actually bill the other party for wasting their time if that party loses.

I went around Johor recently, and see "multilingual" roadsign, Bahasa Malaysia and Jawi/Arab everywhere... are they defying the constitution and belittling the national language? hmmm...

Lulu.
My recent visit to Penang was very disappointing as we have not seen a traffic officer for 4 days despite the endless traffic problems we encountered during the holidays. Its so obvious that the traffic officers are in a "holiday on leave mood". No one care for the traffic problems in Penang and this may be done deliberately. Too Bad.

Not to mention that the Penang Tourism Action Council recently put up information signs about historical roads in Penang.

In four different languages - Malay, English, Mandarin, Tamil.

But of course, the Penang Tourism Action Council is a federal, Barisan Nasional body...

Exactly my sentiment too Lulu, and you said it well! UMNO ought to have said UM..no to the English acronym a long time ago. So pseudo, ketuanan & all....
