Hostile comments

All I did was upload few pictures and wrote this on the iMasTravel page:

Food hunting in Seoul
Emila Yusof|Tuesday, June 28, 2011 11:49 AM MYT

It continues to rain on our first day in Seoul. We did not want to stay in our room. Besides, we had to eat. From my research prior to visiting Seoul, there is quite a lot of Muslim food around the Itaewon area, so we decided to take a walk in the rain looking for Muslim food there.

We started from our hotel in Seocho-Dong and ended up at Itaewon-Dong, Yongsan-Ku, Seoul. Because it was raining, I had to forget to draw on location. It was a 6.8 kilometre walk in the rain. It was really tiring as I had never walked that far. (The most I can do is 2 kilometres.)

Here are some pictures along the walk:


And for the above entry, I got comments like these:

  • blah – malaysia stupidity reporter come back ,with more boring story. just bring along your house, and come with picture to .
    NAKALABUS – Just travel at moslem country la..end of eating problem
  • BlaBlaBla –  BRING OWN FOOD…Or bring the whole kitchen and cook inside the hotel room !!
  • genesys4 –  went to Korea to eat something you can eat at the back of your house!? I still don’t get it why people travel for this….
  • RIGHTEOUS65 – HEY, hypocrites…if u are a crimninal u are one and who are u to talk of halal or non halal food. AS FOR THIS REPORTER, SHE SHOULD JUST TAKE OFF HER TUDUNG AND EAT dog instead of looking for halal good…(edited, due to vulgarity)
  • Logic – If there’s any intention of traveling to non muslim country. Bring Malaysia halal food and u won’t smell the piggy foods.
  • Nlg Nlg – Not enough with our government clowns travel overseas and waste peoples money, now this idiotic reporters have come up with their own plan to waste our money further.
  • Nlg Nlg – Who cares what she eat or @#$% there? Why have to waste pages for this kind of news?
  • hardyyboyy – U cannot expect every country to cater for ur special needs like halal food. If ur picky just stay in ur own country and eat nasi lemak daily.

They left harsh and hostile comments for my simple writing. I am dumbfounded when simple English has been misinterpreted.  I enjoyed the walk in the rain knowing that there’s a food waiting for me at the end of the walk. Is that so hard to understand?

I won this trip and I am not wasting other people’s money. And the page on Yahoo, it’s mine for 6 months. I won the page. Yahoo! Malaysia/SEA helps me edit my entries. I am not picky on food, I can eat fruits and drink juices.

And I am not a reporter. I will never be. I travel where I want to travel. If you don’t care, don’t read my page.

I would like to thank you friends and readers who have supported me. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart for being always by my side through hard times.

  1. akak, dont let them affect you. org2 camni, takde akal. simple english pun tak paham, lagi nak komen org.. geram lak sy baca.

  2. emm..kesian akak dpt komen mcm ni… the way..don’t bother la org2 mcm ni.. dah ramai non-muslim yg faham keperluan kita as muslim n they respect… ok kak…

  3. So sorry to hear about such responses. even worst, so sorry to know that there are people who think at this very low extent! Keep on doing what you’re doing Kak Emila..ignore such comments!

  4. I hate stupid people like these who have nothing better to do but bring other people down! they are a menace and we are definitely better off without these morons!

    don’t mind these ignorant people Emila! they are just jealous and bitter because they are miserable!

    I hope you enjoyed your vacay nonetheless.. 🙂

  5. Luv,
    It must be hard for these people to have nothing good to say. They are consumed by their own nasty thoughts. I am glad they show themselves by using distinctively immature words. Now that we can tell who they are, it hopefully gets easier to ignore or get rid of them.

    And guess who gets to travel? And who has the last laugh?

  6. we could write in the same language style they used, but that doesn’t make any difference between the one who thinks before they say or write something to those who just write whatever foolish and defaming statement. coming from a teacher’s point of view, i don’t think they’ve finished schooling from their grammatical errors.

  7. Salam Kak Emila,

    Sorry to hear that you have to go thru a bunch of morons. Pay no attention to them Kak Emi.

    Bila baca komen tu semua, macam kelakar pun ada. Depa semua tu dah terlalu banyak sangat ada perasaan “hatred” sampai tak tahu bezakan yang benar dan salah.

    Biarkan ajer, terus kan apa yang Kak Emila buat. tu yang penting.

    : )

  8. saya tak faham kenapa mereka tak faham…komen bukan main dlm english…huu…kalau x suka x yah le hegeh2 melepak kat page org…sila g melepak kat page org yg depa2 suka…(ehe..sori sis..tumpang emo kat cni :D) teruskan menulis sis…masih ramai yg suka 🙂

  9. I’m clueless on how these people had the heart to utter bad things like that to a person they don’t even know..sangat2 cruel to me; especially when I know you’re not doing anything wrong. Anyway, Emila I guess you’re mature enough to absorb this and forget; they are just not worth fretting about. It’s sad that we have this kind of attitude but again it’s just life. We just take the good and spit out the bad; life is short. I’ve enjoyed your blog and the trip..there are more people who love you that the ones who don’t. Cheer up okay!

  10. Hi Kak Emila,

    I heard about this harsh comments you received from DenaiHati. Well, the comments speaks volumes about how shallow some people can be and reflects on how they were brought up. Or maybe they’re just jealous you get to go for free while they have to rob a bank to buy a plane ticket.

    I’ve been to Korea, and man, it was really hard to find Halal food. So, me and the entourage cooked instead 😉

    1. memang susah, hanya di itaewon je ada. i cannot cook sebab duduk kat bilik hotel. food is not a problem to me, i boleh makan buah and roti but masa tu me and husband saja jalan2, sambil tengok pemandangan.

  11. RIGHTEOUS65 tu terlebih hostile aku tengok. Komen2 dia kat page lain semuanya full of hatred. Jiwa penuh dengan amarah. Semoga Tuhan beri dia petunjuk. Amin.

  12. Those who keep mentioned about ‘halal’ food is actually attacking our identity. Siapa lagi yang kisah about halal except muslims?

  13. Ems!! I didn’t read this post.. but OMG!!.. what a mean bunch of people and stupid to the max.. reflect what kind of mentality these sour grapes have.. Just ignore them ok.. Hugs!

  14. Sejak ada media sosial, ramai yang tunjuk bakat mengutuk orang…maklumlah tak perlu tunjuk identiti sebenar. Bila buka Yahoo page dll, bila tgk ruangan komen, mmg suka benar orang taip kata2 yang tak elok… terutama bila ada isu politik, kaum, artis dll. Entah kenapa…..

    Saya pun tak suka kata2 yang ditujukan pada K. Em tu. Entah siapa2 yang menulis entah apa-apa macam tu… mungkin mereka orang yang bermasalah dalam hidup.
