FuFu Malaysia Project - Malaysian Boleh

FuFu Malaysia Project

24th August - 16th September 2010 | Episode 3

FuFu Malaysia Project - Episode 3 : Malaysian Boleh* (FuFu Boleh)

After a year of studying Japanese at the language centre, i started my college life in spring 2003. I was the first and only Malaysian studying in Syusei Technical College. My professor always giving me pressure that i had to study harder because i was the representative from Malaysia. I love my country so i wanted to proudly prove that FuFu as a Malaysian can achieve well in other countries because without Malaysia i wouldn't be able to go that far.

"Lam Ching Fu from Malaysia."

I was calling out up to the stage to receive the awards, so did Malaysia being mentioned three times. I was feeling extremely proud but with a dash of disappointment because Malaysian flag couldn't be raising up together with our national anthem playing along. Fortunately, two years later, my mother, god mother and sisters came to my graduation ceremony of Hiroshima University. It's really good to have them there sharing my little achievement. Malaysian Boleh. FuFu Boleh.

Malaysia Boleh is a good slogan. But i would much-super-rather prefer to say Malaysian Boleh. Because we seriously need to have citizens who are totally open minded, diligent, rational-thinking, anti-racism, respect the diversity and good team players. Without these groups of people, how could we successfully make Malaysia Boleh? Too hard to get my point? Alright, for an example, to make a good wine that would be internationally famous of, below which is the most appropriate?

A. Find a suitable location for the grape you are trying to grow.
B. Cultivate vinifera grapes which are known as the best grapes.
C. Add excellent yeast to ferment the wine.
D. Ensure the fermentation process is good.
E. Store the wine in appropriate barrels.

All options sound alright but which would you choose for the question?

No earthquake, no volcano eruptions, no typhoon or hurricane but bad flooding during monsoon period, no severe drought but sometimes can be torching, no twister and so on. Malaysia is free from natural disasters, it's a safe, ideal and fertile land to grow the grapes. Then, we have also several type of good vinifera grapes' seeds. Brown, yellow and black.

Following steps for grape cultivation are very important. Don't give too much shade because grapes should enjoy sunbathing. Too much fertilizer can irreparably damage a grape. Do balance the watering so the sweetness would not be fading away. If this cultivation process is not handled well, grapes will be susceptible to certain elements that are hazardous to its growth and maturation. You can't make good wine if you don't have good grapes.

Yeast? We have been investing a lot of money in it though yeast is just a supporting role actor, we just need a small amount of it in the fermentation process in the oak aging barrels. But forget it, because it can still somehow help enhancing the quality of wine after all. Storing is also another wisdom. Because wine will react with the wood of the barrel and undergo changes that develop its character, hence keep the barrels in a cool ventilated location. Never ever let other people brainwash the barrels. Enhance the security system! Also, all barrels need a way for the carbon dioxide produced by the yeast to escape. Otherwise, when a certain amount of carbon dioxide is collected and powerful enough to explode, the land will be all RED, spilled with wine. Think twice! Remember to put the "Be Cautious", "No Fire" and other safety signboards. Never ever let the moron-made disaster happen again!

While most of us would just pick up and pay for a bottle of wine, some people make their own wine. If you have got good quality of grapes could be growing in your fertile yard, you may have wondered how to make wine. Therefore, above are the steps to take to turn grape juice into a fine alcoholic beverage.

Back to the question, so the ideal answer would be B. Since we already have the ideal land, yeast, fermentation knowledge and good oak barrels, we just need to cultivate the grapes properly, give them adequate love, proper care as well as equal amount of water, sun, fertilizer. Conclusion, the wine can't be considered as Boleh until you have cultivated the capable and caliber grapes for the wine making.

Don't tell me you still can't get what i am trying to mean! READ it again. Anyway hope you enjoy reading this article. One Malaysia? One FuFu is better. lol Raise the national flag. Show your love to Malaysia.

"We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams."

I like it when I read blogs by other people from other countries. I get to learn a lot from the different cultures. This is the age when borders are non-existent and people learn the diversity of the world.

Anyway, it all goes down to this, Malaysia Boleh! haha. :)

Akira 思胜 said...

Malaysia boleh? Well, it depends. Somehow we have to reunite amongst ourselves in order to achieve that target.

行走绿色世界 said...

I choose A+B+C+D+E
I will choose to combine all the options to make a bottle of good wine, it is very tough to choose only 1 answer. Am I greedy haha
We have to gather all the natural resources + Malaysia talents; everybody has to hand in hand to bring our country towards a bright future then the slogan of Malaysia BOLEH will succeed in near future.

fufu said...

Allen :"We become not a melting pot but a beautiful mosaic. Different people, different beliefs, different yearnings, different hopes, different dreams." nice!! i think i am gonna use this quote for the next coming post! well every country has its own problem, even like Japan, USA, UK, Germany, etc are all fighting for equality... i just wish all malaysians could realise that we couldnt have achieve that great without our country, parents and friends... all should respect the diversity... right?

Akira 思胜 :yes you are right... first we have to get together...before moving to the next step... wish we manage to do so sooner...

Winnt : of course we need A till E, but just e need to emphasize on B since it's so important ya :) 對呀 我們應該團結起來 :) 保衛我們的權力搞好我們的家園 :) 我們馬來西亞人一定可以的

shloke said...

Yep, Malaysia Boleh! Our motherland is not exposed to natural disasters on a daily basis and we don't live in war zones. Yes we should be thankful for these blessings.

I'm waiting for that day - more open minded Malaysians who will champion freedom of thought, rational thinking and who value highly the dignity of fellow humans.

Thanks for sharing fu!

MKL : wow your bahasa malaysia is nit bad!! hohohoho good! i love all my readers here including you ok? hahaha glad you could speak a little bit of bahasa :) proud of you!! you are one nice tourist that truly loves malaysia :)

TG said...

Sorry to say that, but I learned bahasa malaysia in Singapore, haha :P It's funny, but when in Singapore, I hung out with Malays and in Malaysia with Chinese. So I experienced life of a minority. And you can be sure, same as Chinese in Malaysia criticize Malays, the Malays in Singapore criticize Chinese Singaporeans. It can never be right for everyone, can it? :P

fufu said...

MKL : hahaha it doesnt matter where you have learnt the language :) as long as we can communicate ya :) you mentioned minority... oh sad... we are getting less and less, i mean the population...because the flowing out of elites... anyway i am going back soon though :)
