Proton & Malaysia Airlines has contributed so much in bringing Malaysia name around the world. Every where you go, people will know what and where is our country Malaysia. For example my every travel trip before to various countries such as South Africa, Saudi Arabia and latest Turkey, they all know malaysia so well. When I say malaysia (Malayzia / malayzi) they will say “oh.. Malaysia.. kuala lumpur.. a very nice city”. And we found that some of the man there attracted to Malaysian lady and some of them have a girlfriend here in Malaysia.
When I finished my prayer at Hagia Sophia Istanbul Turkey, the imam approach us and ask where we came from and when we told him we are from malaysia, he directly said “Malaysia! Where Proton comes from!”. From this we clearly see that Proton really successful in spreading Malaysia Identity by their car models.
While Malaysia Airlines brings the name of Malaysia all over the world via it’s logo on each of it’s fleet. Plus when MAS be one of the top five airlines in the world and the 5 star airlines. Makes us really proud to be Malaysian. =)
In the past, people didn’t recognize Malaysia. But now, Malaysia is one of the famous country. And we as Malaysian should be proud of it.
