My Kiwi colleague was amused and asked if Malaysia belongs to a THIRD WORLD country!
I remember FIVE years ago, we went through the same angst!
Five years ago I complained to Jeff Ooi and he blogged my pain in his Screen Shot's "Wisma Putra Blues" entry.
"Citizen CY Leow, who has been residing in Kiwiland as a Permanent Resident in order to school his two daughters, never realised renewing his Malaysian passport at the Wellington Malaysian High Commission in the New Zealand capital can be so 'third world'.
He shares his bitter experience.
About time someone brought this up!" said Jeff and that was five years ago!
Objects of angst!
