Taib Mahmud cant possibly believe in Prime minister Najib Abdul Razaks 1Malaysia. If he did, he would have chosen a Malaysian bride, better still a Sarawakian. Instead, he married a Syrian woman. Love is of course more important than racial origins.
Najib is due in Sarawak for a working visit this weekend and together with the First Lady, is expected to attend Taibs wedding reception in Kuching.
The PM will join about 460 invited guests to mark Taibs marriage to Ragad Waleed Alkurdi, from Syria. The spectacular ball will be a Whos Who of South-East Asia perhaps. It is where Cinderella meets her princes chums.
Taib Mahmud remarried on December 18 last year and the akad nikah (solemnising of the marriage) was performed at his residence at Demak Jaya in Petra Jaya.
If Taib is accused of not practising Najibs 1Malaysia, then he also stands accused of being too westernised.
The Press Secretary to the Chief Minister Jameson Ahip Nawie said, This particular celebration will be a formal affair, where the male guests are expected to be attired in tuxedo suit.
So what happened to the formal baju Melayu? Why are guests dressed to look like penguins? Is national costume not good enough for Taib?
The dress code may be a disappointment for Malaysians but one wonders also about security for the place.
Taibs daughters, sister and nieces love to show off their bling. If they are also invited to this function, then it is inevitable th! at we wi ll be blinded by all the bling from people wanting to show off.
It might well be that the person who wears no jewellery at all, is the one who will attract the most attention, and possibly gain the title of being the best dressed lady.
Sadly, many Sarawakians will be horrified to learn that one ball-gown may possibly cost more than the yearly wage of the average Sarawakian. Or that one bling is a lifetimes salary. Unless, of course, the rocks are all paste.
