So, common denominator of Sabah and Sarawak is "Sa."
"Sa" means "ones" in numerical terms as in, "What is 432?" Answer: four hundreds, three tens and two ones.
Ones-Malaya. One Malaya. Sounds like.... One Malaysia.
I guess maybe our Prime Minister had the same idea given our 1Malaysia political programme.
Really, Malaysia could've saved a lot more money if they had taken time to conduct a branding brainstorm.
I hope they're planning to offer equal-opportunity, non-discriminatory perks to Malaysians CURRENTLY living in Malaysia since they're so eager to RETRIEVE overseas Malaysians to enhance the talent pool. Yoo hoo???? Or do I need to go overseas first to benefit from this nation building exercise?
Would people be happier if "Sa" were given literal preference? Hmm...
Sounds like, "Samalah ya?" (translation: It's the same innit?)
