“Rebranding” frenzy: The same old idea revisited…

Borneo Post. 2009. Renaming of Orang Ulu to 'Lun Daya' proposed. January 22, 2009 Edition.

Dear Y.B. Encik Lihan Jok,

I hereby referred to your press statement made available in the Borneo Post dated January 22, 2009.

My questions (to you) are:

1.      The newly proposed name “Lun Daya” – was it made by popular demand or just for the sake of popularity (read: political survival)?

2.      Is there any referendum carried out regarding the acceptance of this newly proposed name “Lun Daya“, particularly by OUNA (Orang Ulu National Association)?

3.      Have FORUM (The Federation of Orang Ulu Association Malaysia) and you (as the President of FORUM) considered that some Mat Sallehs and/or foreigners might make mistake(s) via mispronunciation and assume that the newly proposed name does have similarity to “Land Dayak“?

Anyway, as you wish, you’re not compelled to reply these questions. Let the people out there to decide on what is best for their own better future.

Thank you and best of regards.

Yours truly,

J “Teddy” M
