Don’t be a dirty fellow

Someone sent me a mail today telling me about a particular call to go yellow. Just as I was about to finish reading it, my colleague who sits behind me asked…

“Are you going yellow?”

Nah… don’t think so, and I think you shouldn’t too. Why? Here is why…

One…
We’re not getting paid for it. Malaysians don’t do things for free.

Two…
We don’t want to be associated with he-who-shall-not-be-named because we got no balls. And I am not referring to Lord Voldermort you Harry Pothead junkie.

Three…
Yellow is not a cool colour. And imagine being in a sea of yellow, it’s just so not cool. We like to be different.

Four…
It won't make a difference.

Five…
We don’t want to make a difference cos things are just so brilliant now.

There you go… say no to yellow… don’t be a dirty fellow…
ok? Cos i am not going to...

Updated: Tingtitlei has also pointed out a few reasons not to do it.

Yellow Yellow Buffalo...

Reminds me of Thai citizens... every Monday (this year), they (most of them) will wear a yellow shirt (voluntarily, of cos!) to honour their King's 60th anniversary accession to the throne. I was a bit surprised to see a sea of yellow people on one Monday morning in Bangkok sometime last year... or was it this year? Hmmm... Ok, out of topic!

angel said...

Aiyah, I think it was last year... factual mistake... dun sue me... :p

Calvin's Wife said...

Anonymous said...

I will be looking for a yellow shirt and cloth today. I don't look good in yellow but what are we telling the kids these days by being silent and cowardly?

Don't show your love to the country and Rulers?

Have lower expectations hence things appear as rosy as before?

Act like the pot and call the kettle black?

Cirnelle said...

Hey, turn your whole blog yellow for a day, instead of only the fonts.

zeroimpact said...

Or may be it's just me

Huei said...

Hor ny Ang Moh said...

Oh! So this is what yellow is about! Actually to me yellow ( in manderin )has another meaning as in watching 'yellow' movie! So r u yellow? Do u feel 'yellow' after watching 'yellow' movie? Have a nice day!

tulipspeaks said...

H.C. Tan said...

somehow when u went yellow, i thought of DiGi, wow I guess Digi really has etched its brandname in all of us

PurpLe~MuShRooM said...

I responded to the yellow movement on my blog.

Angie Tan said...

Hou Wong Ar!!!!

Yellow reminds me of a certain thing of which we call "small biz" when we're in the toilet.

We certainly do not want to be associated with that, do we? (^ ^)

ardy said...

Yellow eh?

I'd rather be Homer Simpson and eat all the donuts in that donut shop in The Curve (apple something, can't remember the name) and drool over hot girls walking in and out of the shop.

Now, how bout that for being yellow! ;)

aSstHa said...

how come d previous entry is blocked by my office administrator??? *gah* zewt... u better email me d post... since i can't read it...hehehe... (too much man dis girl)...

wear yellow ka?... i tink i'd prolly b at home sleeping d day away n no one will notice wat d heck i'm wearing anyway...

besides... i doubt it'll change anything...

sharlydia said...

hey pls enlighten me too! I really dont know what is this yellow thing all about...

My guess - "somebody" said we all (malaysians) have to wear yellow on merdeka day or something?

If my guess is right...wow! I can think of another 100 reasons for not following such "instruction" dude!

rinnah said...

And I was just wondering last night if you were gonna blog about it. Heh.

Yellow = DiGi Yellow Man. See the insidious powers of branding?

Elizebeth D.L. said...

I don't mind wearing Yellow this Friday though, but just very takut might get thrown into the jail for "voicing out" only... would we???

saya memang no balls... tapi ada heart.

j or ji said...

yellow?

pakai baju kuning? macam sukan sekolah?

:p

politician or politics writer memang buta fashion...politik itu sendiri ibarat fesyen yang tidak berubah-ubah...tetap sama.

Malam pakai baju batik.Function siang pakai kot.jumaat pakai baju 'kebangsaan'. Aktiviti senamrobik pakai satu tracksuit lengkap.

aku bukan mangsa fesyen dan tak mau jadi mangsa politik.

Hidup rumah merah!! (mangsa manchester united)

:)

i did wrote a blog few mths back about our mata2 cari makan in penang many lorongs ,parking on white line while having teh-tarik,driving without fastening seat belt,smoking inside balai while on duty,carrying pillion rider without helmet and etc.
am more like a private ACA.
after i posted it in my blog,my family freak out and said am crazy.
imo,if i can't blog about the things i wanted to blog then i might as well not blog at all.
but am a blog addict who love to blog hopping and AZAIG is one of my favourite.
blog away,my friend!!!
