Tiyung Dayak – “The Sour Dayak Apple” in Bidayuh Politics

For the Greater Glory of Bidayuh Politics

The “unthinkable”…?! Think of it – NOW!

There is something that we should learn from the following articles. It reminds us of both good and bad times!

And mind you, folks! This is what slowly happening in Sarawak! We might not expect that one day – yes, one day – that we and our next generations could be living in this “poor” condition! May God forbid!

Well, we shouldn’t say that this is (or was) an act from God; as God provides us very well! The consequences (as some of us have already facing now!) were the results of HUMAN GREED; some human beings (you do know who they are!) will never feel satisfied with what they have and still, they even want some more! Yeah; you and I have learned “those basic terms” in the previous economic class(es), right?!

So, welcome to Nauru, ladies and gentlemen!

The following articles are also worth reading: “Nauru” (a Wikipedia reference); “Norway shows the way on tax” (see subsection “Don’t follow Nauru”) and “Seven reasons you should be happy you don’t live in Nauru.

  1. Oh.yeah Mr.Tiyung. I vividly recalled,that at one time the Nauruan had two Boeing 707 with the insignia AIR NAURU.I happened to be at Sydney airport,way back in 72 or 73 on my vacation to Brisbane.

    I did know something about this place,as they also owned a multi- storeys complex in either Sydney or Melbourne,which was later sold,as they could not service the loan.

    I was also told,that all Nauruan citizens could fly to either Australia or New Zealand at least once a year free of charge includig food,accommodation and pocket money.How true was it,I am not sure.I was in Australia from 1972 to 1974 undergoing my apprenticeship with the Royal Australian Navy at that time.

    • Thanks, Papayuk!

      Yup; it’s so sad to note that the Nauruans had exhausted their one and only resource and now they’ve gone bankrupt!

      I think they should learn more from Singapore, as Singapore is a non-resource rich country!

      Again, knowledge is power!

      P/S: I think we’ve met (personally) long time ago, lah!

  2. It seemed that the link I put in a response to The Broken Shield’s Sebangan article didn’t work!

    Here is my previous comment and the said link:
    This problem is “quite similar” with China’s Hainan (including other developing and under developing countries), where excessive power, money and appetite rule!

    And I guess that some of you have read about what had happened in Nauru!

    Talking about sustainable socio-economics development?! Well, the “illiterate” tycoons won’t buy it, as long as the money comes in!

    Yup; you better look for that “China’s Hainan” article before it is going to expiry (meaning that you’ve to pay the subscription fee to foreignpolicy.com – in order to view that photo essay)!
