It is certainly not right for the government to issue or enforce any guidelines to attempt to exclude or reduce the visibility of images of Eurasian Malaysians in adverisements because Malaysia is a multi-ethnic society and Malaysians of Eurasian origin, like Malaysians of mixed Malay and Indian parentage or ancestry, have been part of our national family for a long time. However, I think it is also good for the local advertising industry to take its own initiative to include more Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban, Kadazan and Orang Asli images to reflect more accurately and truly the organic reality in our contemporary society as well as local aesthetic value and taste.

Hmmm..come to think of it, Zam doesn't exactly look like a Malay either. He looks kind of...mixed....his ancestry probably somewhere West of Penang Island, East of Mumbai..
It doesn't bother me at all, we are all equally Malaysians, but since he brought up the subject...
