Come again … where? Look who shares a similar tagline. Facepalm!


The Malay Mail Online reports:

A short clip titled “Mongolia Endless Possibilities by CNN” has been available on the popular video-sharing website since it was uploaded on February 19, 2012, by a YouTube account user named BDSecJSC.

A check on the Internet revealed “BDSecJSC” to be the initials of a stock brokerage and investment bank which claims to be the largest in Mongolia.

A check on Coloribus, an online archive of advertisements worldwide, lists international news broadcaster CNN, and its owner, Turner Broadcasting System, as creating an “Eye on Mongolia” promotional campaign in August 2011.

The campaign was said to promote Mongolia as a tourism and investment destination.

Haslam’s father & son can make a new movie franchise on ‘Gerak Khas – Robber Cop’ series as the ‘KL Gangster’ series could be banned soon by Finas because of the anti-gangster drive by police now?

I cannot understand why the Home Ministry continues to harp on communist threat when the crime today are committed by the gangsters.

Therefore, the movie ‘KL Gangster 2’ ought to be banned (or at least reviewed one more time by the censorship board) using the same principle as applied to the movie ‘New Village’.

The tagline doesn’t matter. What matters is the strategy. I think we should wait till that comes out before condemning the tagline

Our Ringgit is heading for endless possibilities despite the assurance from Bank Negara.

Today the ringgit lost as much as 0.6 percent to 3.3300 per dollar, its weakest since June 2010, on selling from foreigners.The Malaysian currency managed to stay firmer than the intraday low as the central bank was spotted buying the currency, traders said. Still, the ringgit is seen heading to 3.3345, the 50.0 percent Fibonacci retracement of its appreciation between 2009 and 2011, traders and analysts said, adding that the ringgit was expected to weaken further.

What professional PR consultant that the govt engaged? Didn’t he did a thorough study? Now you see involved in a lot of controversies and the public money is spent. An alternative may be ‘Malaysia,a land of Plentiful Opportunities’.

”Malaysia, endless possibilities” bears an uncanny resemblance to an Israeli drive promoting conferencing in Israel that runs under the banner “Israel, endless possibilities.”
