At 880m long, it was the longest yee sang ever prepared in Malaysia. I don't know whether this is a world record.
It might very well be.
Who would bother with wanting to have such a dubious honour as having the longest yee sang in the world?
Only Malaysia lah! We are after all, "Boleh Land" or "Can Do Land", in Manglish.
We also boast of having had the longest ketupat, the largest mooncake or whatever have you.
So much effort, time and money have been wasted trying to break one record after another. All so rubbishy ones.
And we are supposed to be proud of our gung ho spirit - the spirit of Malaysia Boleh that former PM TDMM hoisted on us unsuspecting plebeians.
Would that we spent more time, energy and effort in ensuring that Malaysia is the least corrupt country in the world, the richest and the safest place in the world to live in.
Ah, that would be a record to be proud of. Instead, all we care for is the frivolous and flippant and easily achievable that nobody else would bother about.
Ouch, no more records okay?
