They said that the gods were offended when Western tourists went naked atop Mount Kinabalu.
The mountain subsequently rumbled and shook, killing other innocent people.
I don't know.
The gods must be crazy for punishing the wrong people instead.
Now that there are reports of some Chinese tourists going nude in the seas off Sabah, Bolehlanders might as well be on the lookout for tsunami to hit The Land Below The Wind.
We are said to be even looking to Interpol to help pin down the cultural polluters off the coast of Sabah and bring them to book.
But we appear not to be interested in pinning down the robber barons of 1MDB. Nor keen to check out the 'status' of the multi-billion Ringgit Arabian tale of a donation that is said to be causing all the mistrust in the government of the day, spooking investors and the Ringgit alike.
To avoid any unnecessary calamity, we might as well close Bolehland to tourists. Shutdown the island resorts and beaches, bar the way to the mountains and what have we. Shut the doors to KLCC to tourists.
Who knows, one fine day some crazy tourists might just decide that they look better in their birthday suits on the KLCC Skybridge. That just might anger the gods enough for them to bring down the twin towers.
No, no, no...we have our sense of honour to protect and a bounden duty to guard against offending the gods who could themselves do crazy things to innocent people instead.
We just have to have our priorities right.
Corruption in high places and big time financial shenanigans that impoverish the nation and make lives difficult for the hoi polloi don't figure in priority nor rouse the ire of the gods
For it offends the eye and lays us bare.
Corruption merely makes the nation a little poorer - that is okay.
The gods are also not offended, so we can live with it.
