Dress codes for tourists… June 8, 2007

In an article on The Star today :

Terengganu Tourist Association chairman Wan Mohd Ariffin Wan Long had suggested that a dress code be introduced so that tourists know how to dress appropriately, and it could be published in brochures and pamphlets.

He said the move would address the sensitivity of the local culture, as some tourists were seen clad sexily.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry. Thankfully, the government decided that it was unnecessary. What a strange turn of events. Tourist Association comes up with silly suggestion, government turns it down. Shouldn’t that have been in reverse?

What is with Malaysians and dress codes anyways? I’ll be the first to agree that long hair on most Malaysian students look extremely ugly, but does it really affect their education or their ability to be disciplined? Or is that just the Malaysian tempurung against globalisation?

*brainwashing voice on* Western influence is evil! You shall remain… local… and stuff… *brainwashing voice off*

“Long hair gives us strength, like dear old Samson.. cut it off and you’re a lamer like Edo. But anyway, fuck those countries who tell us what to wear before coming to visit!!! I’ll show my belly button even if it turns you on misterrrr. Oh wait, I am living in this country and I shall go back to my ignorant ways.

*puts t-shirt back on*
