    Datukship or Ferrari?

    There's an ad on tv now asking people to choose between a Datukship or a Ferrari. I'm curious what the members of the forum thinks.
    Me, I'll choose Ferrari. Cause I can sell it and then do something with the money. There's a lot of misconception that a Datuk has a big bank account. I read some time back an account of a Datuk who told it as it was, how he was 'expected' to make big donations and splurge. And he was actually struggling to make ends meet so to speak. I'm presuming he's not a corrupted fellow then.

    What you have to do and the way you have to do it is incredibly simple.
    Whether you are willing to do it, that's another matter.

    haha.....even Daimler Chrysler CEO got a Datukship. Good for him. But really, it's like a 'qualification'. Last time, diploma cukup. Then we 'upgraded' to degree, masters, phd. Now must have datukship or else you're nobody isit?

    datuk also got different grades... the highest, i think, is datuk seri... then there's the tan sri titles & the varying degree of tun-ship. ling liong sik & siti hasmah got 2nd class one while dr.M, the highest one...

    "Dato" would be more honoured if it is like "Tun" where at any one time, it is limited in number.

    I will choose Ferrari cause it cost few hundred thousands if not a million here, but latoship can be purchase with tens of thousands only.

    Logic or not?

    I'm not into anyone of them but I would choose Ferrari so that I can get cash at the end of the day after selling the car ...
