Capitalism.

In Malaysia, they have adverts like:

To remind us to step back from the hustle and bustle of work, be more patient to our elders and spend more time with our family.

In Singapore, we have crap like this that tells us that F&N Orange is a suitable subsitute for mandarin oranges and that we should all drink F&N.

Capitalism. Don’t you just love it.

If you haven’t spotted the irony yet, is that that heart-warming Malaysian ad is coming from a petroleum company. And they release ads like that every year for every major cultural holiday in Malaysia.
