A Family Story

Once, there was a family known as Bolehland. In 1985, they were blessed with their first born, Ploton. The family loved Proton all they can. They gave Proton everything. They protected Proton from the bigger boys in Kindergarten. They told Proton, "You're young, you need protection from them. It's okay to make mistakes, you're young. Even if you don't learn from mistakes...it's okay...you are young."

Ploton became spoilt. He always depended on parents and used up all his allowance on useless things. When he had to do his chores, he paid people to do it and the work is lousy, causing the parents having to call repairmen to fix all the mess that he made.

Anyway, when Ploton was 10 (but he still acted like he is 1 or 2 years old), he had a younger brother, P2. At first, everyone thought this younger brother will be like Ploton. Anyway, this new baby was more > >> handsome and looks smarter than Ploton. Bolehland knew there is a possibility P2 could be smarter than Ploton. Since they love
Ploton so much, they decided that P2 can only learn a few things. cannot learn the same thing as Ploton. This is so that P2 wouldn't beat Ploton at what Ploton is doing.

Although P2 was also protected by Bolehland, he learn to be independent very fast. He made good friends with Daihatsu, who had an elder brother Toyota. The two of them helped P2 in everything. P2, being independent and smart, learnt a lot and in a short while, was becoming as good as, if not better, than Ploton.

Bolehland realized that P2 was becoming better than his brother. Although proud of P2, they still love Ploton best. They paid Lotus(which is older and well known worldwide) to be friends with Ploton. Using this advantage, Ploton mentioned Lotus everytime he wanted to tell people about himself. On this own, he was still the same.

Moreover, Ploton is always not updated. When doing his work, he still uses the typewriter and refuses to use the computer. P2, so much younger, used the computer, with broadband for his work. P2 was improving so much that Toyota has assigned him with his work, codename Avanza.

2005. Ploton is 20 years old, P2 only 10. It was obvious that P2 was the more successful of the two siblings. What is worse, Ploton said he still need his parents to help him for another 10 years. He still need to protection from the big boys. In May 2005, P2 was about to show Bolehland his best work so far...codename Myvi.

Ploton, being jealous...quickly came up with an unprofessional remark about P2's work and show his work at the same time as P2 on purpose The future of Bolehland and her two kids are still unknown. But it would be obvious that P2 will shine, leaving Ploton crying. It would be a wonder if in 2015, Ploton will ask Bolehland for another 10 years of help and protection...maybe this time...protection from P2 as well...........


A very well said. And i believe this is a feelings of those living in Bolehland.
