I think it’s ironic that if I was to nominate two icons to represent Malaysian society, they would be:
1) The dude in the DiGi Shhh cinema ad, who goes “Who dare scold me? I don’t care la I taikor mar!”
2) The Magnificent Shiny Disc Hero. Yeah, you know, the bright-color-haired DVD seller who goes “Yo! Hello friend!” and gets a load of “Tai jor laa!”
Who’s your Malaysian icon?
