They're Gonna Jump.

So it is not a joke that I thought it was. A couple of guys from Umno Youth and a couple more guys who used to be professional Mat Rempit are going to the North Pole to jump from an airplane next month. They figure this kinda stunt will help solve, once and for all, the problem we are facing with Mat Rempit in the city.
These guys are pretty smart. They must have gone to a high-class university to come up with this kinda thing since they figured, the country is totally helpless to do something about it they might as well take control of the situation so Malaya can move forward now that we are going to celebrate our 50th Merdeka.
They don't get it, do they? Mat Rempits are right here in the city, Chow Kit, Maju Junction, Dataran Merdeka, Jalan Ampang at KLCC. They are all over the city but the Umno Youth can't see that so they say among themselves, let's go to North Pole and solve this Mat Rempit problem from the top of the world.
And these guys are gonna be our future leaders. I don't know about you but I'm migrating to New Zealand to live in a location where they shot Lord of the Ring.
Here's the question, who came up with this North Pole jump in the first place? Maybe a lot of people out there can't see through this whole thing, and maybe I shouldn't be writing about this but this whole thing to me, is making me laugh so hard I almost got latte coming out of my nose.
They're gonna jump.
It doesn't get any funnier than this, mate.
They're gonna jump.
Jump!
(Take it away, David Lee Roth!, the Malaysians are comin'...
And these are the cream of the crop, the best of the best
and the coutnry is gonna be so proud of them
the prime minister himself is thinking about jumpin' himself since
we can all jump jump jump
oh Mexican jumpin' beans
make jumpin' jack flash out of us so we can jump like toads.
Who says this ain't no great country we live in, mate?
I'm crazy about this country that I am falling in love with it all over again
in fact, I'm so crazy about it I'm jumping like a cat on a hot tin roof.
Yo, Tennessee Willy guy,
the Malaysians are comin'...

Salam to Bergen.

Maybe while jumping they should listen to an old song via they ipod or mp3 or mp4; "Lompat sikatak lompat..Lompat!
Lompat lah tinggi tinggi
Bila Mat Rempit lompat
Jangan sampai Mat rempit mati.."

I think I know why they are doing the jump.
First: The publicity esp to the Puter UMNO's boss.He is eyeing the UMNO youth seat(maybe after menantu).
Second: the money rolling in with this jumping project. The sponsorships, the grants the donations etc.

Me think the Rempit menace is here to stay. They can jump anywhere they wanted to but the rempits won't budge.

p/s;Bergen sir, are there any rempits in N.Zealand? I'm sure there are lots of them in Felda New Zealand though.

A question from a person half way across the world -- what is a Mat Rempit? Just curious ... I think I get the gist of it but just wanted to make sure.

Dr Nurul: I thought they've thrown the ring into the fire. Unless of course...

Tokasid: You've got it right there about the publicity thing. This is all a publicity stunt, it's not about trying to solve this rempit problem. And you're right again about this rempit thing is here to stay. Funny thing is, Hanoi, I think, has a higher motorcyles ownership but they don't have rempit problem. Maybe they don't have the kinda street we've got. LOL. Or maybe we've gotta wait a few more years before they pick up the culture. From us. LOL.

ABWNMTS: You brought up an important issue. Our former PM was there to view the place, or probably read it as a scientific journey. Umno youths on the other hand, are gonna be there because; it's there. LOL.

OLFTGM: Lemme see if I can describe this correctly. They are restless youth who get together on weekend to race their bikes in the streets of KL. Of course, every generation has its fair share of this kind of pastime, but this rempit thing has gotten out of hand that it has been known to bring the city to its knees. So far no has come up with the idea to promote this as our cultural showcase. LOL. Most of these rempit dudes, youths in their early 20s, are Malays. Some of them are university graduates, according to a newspaper write on them a few months ago. As if the presence of this graduates will make rempit a noble thing.

My advice is, you don't want to run into them going home at night. One more thing, an important point. They usually do their stunts on the bikes at breakneck speed. And the prize money is usually a couple of hundred dollars, or thousands maybe. And a girl. There's a movie out, entitled Remp It. It was a box office.

What can I say, we are Malaysians.

To everyone who came by this way, thank you and you have a nice day now, y'hear?

the former PM went to Antartica (South Pole), not the Artic (North Pole).

eh David Lee Roth idop lagi ke? Can still jump ka? He'd probably dislocate a hip kot if he might as well jump with his back on the record machine. i know Eddie Van Halen is still alive albeit sans his prostate glands and Valerie Bertinelli.
