DIGOS CITY—The tension surrounding the Sabah invasion has hit social media, with Malaysian supporters and haters putting their thoughts on Princess Jacel Kiram on the microblogging service Twitter.

Jacel was the former spokesperson for her clan that is claiming Sabah.

Jacel’s Twitter account, which now has more than 5,000 followers since it went live on March 13, as well as other blog sites, found a number of Malaysian men saying she could be an actress if she wanted to.

Twitter user Malaysian Narimah Nahalan (@narimanahalan) said Jacel could even qualify to model for Jakel, a very popular chain of fabric stores in Malaysia.

One Malaysian guy, obviously smitten by Jacel, went even  further, offering himself to be her lover.

“As a princess who wants to claim Sabah, here’s a guy you need to know and love,” Public Rin (@ditapis) wrote on Jacel’s Twitter account, @jacelkiram.

Another Twitter user said that if Jacel was not married, he was ready to give her children.

m.a.i@NYoRK (@nyork118), who has been critical of the Kiram family, describing its members as “murderers,” turned starstruck: “I am tweeting with a Princess… wow…”

On Facebook, a Malaysian suggested he was ready to give anything to the Princess in return for love. “Even the sun and moon,” he wrote.

Another reposted a comment by Facebook user Leftie Le’l Stuart, which said, “She cooks very well,” adding that he would have no regrets if he was lucky enough to win the princess’ hand.

The Facebook user told the Inquirer that Jacel cooks beef rendang, a favorite dish among Malaysians that is normally served only on special occasions.

Jacel’s Twitter account also drew the interest of young Malaysian political leaders.

Khairy Jamaluddin, youth leader of the United Malays Nationalist Organization (Umno), asked Tan Keng Liang, youth leader of the Kedah-based Parti Gerakan Rakyat Malaysia, to check on @jacelkiram.

“The invading faux princess @jacelkiram is now on Twitter. Unleash your unending tweets & end this conflict,” Tan said.

“Let me check out this Sulu ‘Princess’ @jacelkiram… ok. Good news. Easy meat,” Tan replied.

    this “fat yellow lady” i am sure does not care what Malaysians think of her. She maintains a twitter account to keep the Sultantate’s cause alive. Sad to say Malaysian men are so immature to believe that any Filipina would even bother reading their outrageous flatteries written in grammatically incorrect Malay English. Sorry guys, sugar-coated or not, your lousy attempts to flirting are just plain stupid, boring and laughable. Tweet your own Malaysian women.

    No matter what Malaysian people say, you can’t hide the truth, you can’t kill the truth, you will never be happy of what you have because you need to grab more but you’ll not be satisfied. In the end the truth will prevail. The world knew that Sabah is not yours. And the world knew that you take advantage of the weak. Shame on you.

    Inquirer is a free media. It will write what it wants to write. They are not like your news media who always write what the government wants them to write. They dont have to please you Malaysians who obviously hate this news organization. You only want to hear what you like to hear. As far as I know you are all frequent visitors in this site, you have a choice not to read what they are saying. Life is good, too much stress on hateful comments can kill you. Watch your blood pressure :-)
