Selamat caught at Causeway? Part 2

The satire continues. According to a frequent visitor to Sophie's World, a joke is circulating as to why escaped Singapore terrorist Mas Selamat Kastari is likely to be in Malaysia and Indonesia.

The two neighbours of Singapore have clear signs that say "Selamat Datang" to welcome visitors. Selamat Datang is the common Malay phrase for "Welcome" or "Selamat is Coming" in this context.

Of course, there is a clear sign at the causeway that says "Selamat Datang" to all visitors -- legal and illegal -- from Singapore. :-)
