Proton vs Perdua – a story about the 2 sons of Malaysia – New MyVi – RM 68,000.00

28 Mar 2008 | Malaysia |  14 comments

A story about the two (2) Sons of Malaysia, Elder Son – Proton and Younger Son – Perdua. This post is targeted at Malaysian readers, hence non-Malaysians readers might would like to skip this post unless they are interested in Malaysia’s local car industry.

I am not the author of the following story, I received this via an email forward quite a long time ago. Spend quite some time digging this up as I can’t remember the title, the story is about two car manufactoring firms in Malaysia so I guess that only Malaysians can truly understand what it is talking about.

Proton vs Perdua
Once, there was a family known as Malaysia. In 1985, they were blessed with their first born, Proton. The family loved Proton all they can.

They gave Proton everything. They protected Proton from the bigger boys in Kindergarden. They told Proton, “You’re young, you need protection from them. It’s okay to make mistakes, you’re young. Even if you don’t learn from mistakes…it’s okay…you are young.”

Proton became spoilt. He always depended on parents and used up all his allowance on useless things. When he had to do his chores, he paid people to do it and the work is lousy, causing the parents having to call repairmen to fix all the mess that he made.

Anyway, when Proton was 10 (but he still acted like he is 1 or 2 years old), he had a younger brother, Perodua. At first, everyone thought.

This younger brother will be like Proton. Anyway, this new baby was more handsome and looks smarter than Proton. Malaysia knew there is a possibility Perodua could be smarter than proton. Since they love Proton so much, they decided that Perodua can only learn a few things. Cannot learn the same thing as Proton. This is so that Perodua wouldn’t Beat Proton at what Proton is doing.

Although Perodua was also protected by Malaysia, he learn to be independent very fast. He made good friends with Daihatsu, who had An elder brother Toyota. The two of them helped Perodua in everything. Perodua, being independent and smart, learned a lot and in a short while, was becoming as good as, if not better, than Proton.

Malaysia realized that Perodua was becoming better than his brother.Although proud of Perodua, they still love Proton best. They paid Lotus which is older and well known worldwide) to be friends with Proton.

Using this advantage, Proton mentioned Lotus every time he wanted to Tell people about himself. On this own, he was still the same.

Moreover, Proton is always not updated. When doing his work, he Still uses the typewriter and refuses to use the computer. Perodua, so much younger, used the computer, with broadband for his work. Perodua was improving so much that Toyota has assigned him with his work, codename Avanza.

2005. Proton is 20 years old, Perodua only 10. It was obvious that Perodua was the more successful of the two siblings. What is worse,Proton said he still need his parents to help him for another 10 years.

He still need to protection from the big boys. In May 2005, Perodua was about the show Malaysia his best work so far…codename Myvi. Proton, being jealous…quickly came up with an unprofessional remark about Perodua’s work and show his work at the same time as Perodua on purpose.

The future of Malaysia and her two kids are still unknown. But it would be obvious that Perodua will shine, leaving Proton crying. It would be wonder if in 2015, Proton will ask Malaysia for another 10 years of Help and protection…maybe this time…protection from Perodua as well

Deimos’s Daily Reads
Thanks to all those who participated in the little experiment of mine!

Josh has several networking tips to share.

Tam‘s first vocabulary quiz totally owned me, I can’t figure out any of them!

TheBobo found a kewl screenie of a real life anime girl! She’s cute!

Ever wondered what your name means, Prim3 found a site to analyze it!

Ty Hurd wondered if those folks have guardian angels watching over them, after watching the video for myself, I thought so too!

Deimos’s Thoughts
I think the new MyVi looks kinda good aye? Besides that, I don’t think Proton is ever going to outperform Perdua anytime soon. If I am going to buy a local car, I reckon I am going to buy one from Perdua, heh. I am a poor mofo, can’t afford to buy expensive cars.

If you are going to buy a local car, would you rather buy from Proton or from Perdua?

    if it’s real, it looks better than the new saga. Hope without the iron woman in power, Malaysia will implement AFTA like how it was meant.

    I have no intention to spoil the party. But I can’t help noticing the two cars in the images having different lines. The most obvious being the doors and the wheel arch.

    I have not been following the automobile industry for a few years so have little sense of car design. The second image somehow gives me a feeling of a Mitsubishi Evo VII (or VIII or IX) with MyVi bonnet and front lights.

    I do not mind seeing such Perodua offering though.
