Ha! Dish us somemore la. No tax rebate for you.
Hiyah! I totally forgot to hand out this award last week.
The Can-you-please-explain-because-we-sure-don't-understand-what-the-fuck-you're-saying-or-were-you-misquoted Award goes to......
FINAS director-general, Mohd Naguib Razak for saying, that the film Nasi Lemak 2.0 did not receive the 20% tax rebate enjoyed by most Malaysian films because it did not qualify for the Wajib Tayang (mandatory cinema screening) status due to "prejudiced views" against director-actor, Namewee. The FINAS fler also said that Namewee had sparked a controversy before and so the film which wanted to promote unity and foster the 1Malaysia spirit suffered.
Huh???!!! What???!!! Can you all please read that statement again and see if you can find the logic or reasoning behind the Finas fler's decision? I also remember that not that long ago another film, Ah Niu's Ice Kacang Puppy Love had similiar problems. It couldn't get the tax rebate then because it was considered NOT a Malaysian film because the actors in a story set in a Chinese community spoke Chinese!
Errrr....wait a minute.....I think I am finally beginning to discover what 1Malaysia really means.
