Yes, I haven’t fall off the face of Earth. I’ve been preoccupied with what some humans call voluntary institutionalisation. It’s not easy working with a group of new people (to learn new ways, be polite and not shoot my mouth off) but that’s where the challenge is and boy, am I loving it.
While I haven’t been updating here regularly, I’ve been busy making mental notes on what to write here – so please, go easy on me. What I am sharing today isn’t totally new but it totally cracks me up. Hear this, the Royal Malaysian Police had a Facebook cum Twitter launch as one of its PR initiatives.
So yes – this Royal Malaysian Police’s Facebook cum Twitter launch was heavily covered in the Malaysian and international media. However, before I could finish reading the coverage, my eyeballs were rolling all the way to the back of my brains.
Created as a means to “correct negative perception” of the service, the Royal Malaysian Police also needs to walk the talk. Corruption and bribery are still some of the main reasons for distrust and mistrust towards the Malaysian police force. And that…it will not be solved by the number of Facebook fans nor likes… until the crux of its problem (mostly people-related) is solved. Let’s hope that Malaysians will at least be more aware of crime hotspots through this Facebook account.
