I am tired of reading malais writing about Timor. Baruk loos.
(The only regular Timorese blogger is Angela Carrascalão, who spent a lot of her life here in Portugal and is treated like a malai in her own country.)
I know there are Timorese with internet access, with digital cameras. I’ve seen you all, at the few free internet points around town: World Bank and Instituto Camões. UNTIL and Xanana Reading Room both offer accessible internet for privileged Timorese. And those with office jobs have access.
Hau husu, please, Timorese people you need to let the world know about yourselves. Tenki fo hatene ba mundu kona-ba imi nia hanoin, imi nia moris.
I know you are using your precious web time to contact friends and family. But please, we need diaries, we need opinions, images, feelings.
You are letting a bunch of Timorese zealots and misfit malais (myself included) define your country.
