The Story Behind Proton and Perodua

Once, there was a family known as Malaysia. In1985, they were blessed with their first born,Proton. The family loved Proton all they can. Theygave Proton everything. They protected Proton fromthe bigger boys in Kindergarten. They told Proton,"You're young, you need protection from them. It'sokay to make mistakes, you're young. Even if youdon't learn from's areyoung."Proton became spoilt. He always depended onparents and used up all his allowance on uselessthings. When he had to do his chores, he paidpeople to do it and the work is lousy, causing theparents having to call repairmen to fix all themess that he made.Anyway, when Proton was 10 (but he still actedlike he is 1 or 2 years old), he had a youngerbrother, Perodua. At first, everyone thought thisyounger brother will be like Proton. Anyway, thisnew baby was more handsome and looks smarter thanProton. Malaysia knew there is a possibiltyPerodua could be smarter than Proton. Since theylove Proton so much, they decided that Perodua canonly learn a few things. Cannot learn the samething as Proton. This is so that Perodua wouldn'tbeat Proton at what Proton is doing.Although Perodua was also protected by Malaysia,he learn to be independent very fast. He made goodfriends with Daihatsu, who had an elder brotherToyota. The two of them helped Perodua ineverything. Perodua, being independent and smart,learnt a lot and in a short while,was becoming asgood as, if not better, than Proton.Malaysia realized that Perodua was becoming betterthan his brother. Although proud of Perodua, theystill love Proton best. They paid Lotus (which isolder and well known worldwide) to be friends withProton. Using this advantage, Proton mentionedLotus everytime he wanted to tell people abouthimself. On this own, he was still the same.Moreover, Proton is always not updated. When doinghis work, he still uses the typewriter and refusesto use the computer. Perodua, so much younger,used the computer, with broadband for his work.Perodua was improving so much that Toyota hasassigned him with his work codename Avanza.2005. Proton is 20 years old, Perodua only 10. Itwas obvious that Perodua was the more successfulof the two siblings. What is worse, Proton said hestill need his parents to help him for another 10years. He still need to protection from the bigboys. In May 2005, Perodua was about the showMalaysia his best work so far...codename Myvi.Proton, being jealous...quickly came up with anunprofessional remark about Perodua's work andshow his work at the same time as Perodua on purposeThe future of Malaysia and her two kids are stillunknown. But it would be obvious that Perodua willshine, leaving Proton crying. It would be a wonderif in 2015, Proton will ask Malaysia for another10 years of help and protection...maybe from Perodua as well...........THE END
