Poor FlyFM Advertisement

I want to become a waiter

“Maybe some day, I too can work in a 5 star hotel”.

A short clip of FlyFM’s advertisement to be exact.

Who are they trying to kid? Imagine walking into that college, a man introduces himself as the dean and told you, “You are guaranteed a position in a 5 Star hotel. You will LEARN the art of serving overpriced food & drinks.”

Has Malaysian ambition & expectation sunk so low? Last I checked with Emok[1. Emok is my 10 year old brother], he wanted to be a scientist ๐Ÿ˜ฏ

My old man told me, “asal halal sudah“[2. As long as it comes from the righteous path], I don’t think that’s the case here ๐Ÿ˜ก

Let’s not bicker in flames and change that line to, “Maybe someday, I can open my own 5 start hotel“. Now that sounds much better, don’t you think?

ps : I believe it’s a hotel management course โžก

nothing wrong being a waiter. as long as halal.

question is, nak jadi waiter seumur hidup ke? plus, kerja kat hotel sure ada alcohol served. so, up to the individual lah. for me, as long as i can avoid these things, i’d rather avoid it.

apapon, aku tetap makan kat hotel gak. sebab buffet kan best? :D.

“Has Malaysian ambition & expectation sunk so low?” <– I would say yes to that. Thanks to the unemployed graduates scene in our country. These days, some people will feel really blessed just to get A JOB. So i think it’s the college’s marketing strategy which is to target at such people. A 5-star hotel sounds more mmm promising maybe.

Take my mom’s students for example. They don’t go to school to study. They just want full attendance so they’ll get school leave certs (sijil tamat sekolah). This is to apply jobs (sales person, shop assistant, etc) later on. Some of them dont even come to school with bags ๐Ÿ˜ฏ My mom would go “mane buku kamu?”. They will answer “ala, malas aaa cikgu”. So the rest is history cause my mom just turned into godzilla and eat them all up. ๐Ÿ™‚

haha reminds me of my sister when she was around 3-4 years old .. said she wanted to be a telephone operator! Why? Because she was the one that answered the phone at home and at Grandma’s hehe … but that was before, now she’s aiming for something more ๐Ÿ˜€

Back to your question, not everybody have such low “ambitions” hehe … but who knows the level of waitressing will rise after this? Whatever it is, asal halal sudahlah… takkanlah semua nak jadi boss – saper nak jadi kuli plak? hihihihi aperยฒ pon… aku nak jadi bos! Weeeeeeee! :XO:

What ever happens to the kids who want to become a doctor?

Inzi, the ad was in English, usually educated people speaks English and tune in to FlyFM. I dont really think they got their audience right.

I haven’t met any unemployed graduates.

Your mom Godzilla? I wonder, did the kids turned to Ultraman or team up and become Power Rangers

However linie, as I mentioned, halal & haram, that’s not the case (think about the non muslim). The key here is stimulate the young minds with bigger ambition. EVEN if they failed to achieve that, getting there half way is good enough.

“Tried and failed, not fail to try”

You know how med schools situation is like in malaysia. they are the clever ones. somehow they manage to go to med school without having to listen to no radio ad.

Yup, wrong audience = bad marketing.

ohoho, i have met plenty. the longest in the reign of unemployability was two years. and did you read about some of them were being cheated by job agencies.

The kids, they didnt turn up into otomen nor power rangers, they died in freak accidents. tu la melawan lagi cakap cikgu. ๐Ÿ™„

ps: the other guy called me iguana :mad:, u called me inzi, is this some kind of scorpio’s trait, to change other people’s names to their likings. my sister (a scorpio too) called me poledik (a long term for adik)..hahaha..isnt iwana or izni is already beautiful as it is. ๐Ÿ˜†

my bad, that was a typo (is it?)

Yeah, I guess Scorpio does have the trait of giving people names. As long as they’re not bad, kenape idak?

2 years? That’s quite a holiday.

typo it is..haha.. i was quick to asssume it was written on purpose. *malu* nevermindlah, kite mesti sentiasa berprasangka baik ๐Ÿ™‚

uuu, now we have notification emails too for the comments.

yup. yup. yup. so that people don’t comment once and terus ciau.

Sorry if it’s nasty and looks like spam to you, but I’m not shutting it down. Hahaha ๐Ÿ˜€

One day, I’ll find a way to tease you. Make sure tak menagis tau. Kalau nangis, I bagi choki2 je.. okay?

:kiss: โžก ๐Ÿ˜ˆ ๐Ÿ˜ ๐Ÿ™„ ๐Ÿ˜ฅ ๐Ÿ˜ฎ
