Poor 'Bananas'! Haha.....

There are people who are pejoratively being called 'bananas', yellow on the outside but white inside.

These are the Chinese who are essentially white worshippers. They feel ashamed of their roots and despise the Chinese culture and many of them are unable to speak Mandarin or are reluctant to learn.

Bolehland has its fair share of these bananas. But their numbers are thankfully on the decline as there are no more English medium language schools.

The bananas feel that their western or English language education makes them superior to their non-English speaking brothers and sisters.

They especially despise the Mainland Chinese, whom they look down on as ignorant, uncouth, rude and uncivilized and China as backward.

It is true that there are Mainland Chinese who are what the bananas say they are. These are mostly the middle-aged and/or the uneducated newly come into wealth kampung mari type Mainland Chinese who behave much like the ugly Americans once did.

Unfortunately, being white worshippers doesn't mean they are appreciated by the whites who call the bananas 'yellow monkeys' Of course in these politically correct times, the whites don't actually call the bananas that. They ask 'where are you from' even though the bananas may be 3rd or 4th generation ABCs or CBCs or BBCs.

And the bananas are themselves despised by the Mainland Chinese for forgetting and despising their roots and being unable to speak their common language.

The irony is that while the bananas are unable to speak or reluctant to learn Mandarin, many of the westerners whom the bananas worship are now beginning to learn the language because they realise that you cannot ignore the Middle Kingdom even if you are not enamoured with it.

Here in Bolehland itself, many Malay families are now sending their children to Chinese schools haha.




Here's a little perspective on 'backward' China

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
