Unwanted publicity!

Posted in Sibu Drifting on March 13, 2009 by Stanley Carter

I think many of you that have read the 12/3/2009 issue of Sin Chew Daily would’ve already read the report regarding some drifting action in Sibu which involves the local policemen as well.

Here’s one that I found from Guangming online, which is basically the exact same report as the one shown in Sin Chew though.

I must admit I was extremely SHOCKED when I first heard the news from a close friend of mine at an early morning yesterday, just when I was on an express and was about to depart to Daro for my outstation duty.  Anyways, this was the first sms that I received that morning:

“Bro, you’re famous now, your drifting video with the police is now on Sin Chew!”

I immediately phoned my friend to clarify the news, which to my disbelief, he wasn’t joking at all.  Right after the phone call, my hp started receiving a whole lot of sms as well as phone calls from many of my colleagues, close friends, and relatives, those that have known me for my fanatic interests in drifting of course ^_^

Throughout the entire day of work at Daro, my mind was literally occupied by the mixed feelings regarding the news, not to mention that my hp was hella busy from morning to evening!  I just wasn’t sure if this sudden publicity is REALLY bad, or quite bad, or maybe, not THAT bad la… but of course I know it definitely can’t be GOOD that’s for sure!  Since the way that the reporter wrote on the news made me feel like I’m a fugitive or somesort, I was like “WTF!?” :S

But what’s been done has been done, I should’ve anticipated this outcome since I’ve uploaded the video a long time ago, what I don’t really understand is WHY the heck does the reporter even bother to make a fuss about a video that’s like almost a year ago?  Has the local reporters got nothing better to write on?  Buggers….

Enough crap, the video has now been taken off.
