Wages

Who said Malaysia has a graduate unemployment problem?

Imagine if you're broke and unemployed.

You walked into this restaurant, opened up the menu and noticed that they serve wages on the menu.

WAGES!

Ok, I'm sure they meant "wedges"! Which is totally different thing altogether.

But how cool is it if you can just walk into a restaurant and ask them to pay you wages?

No word on whether or not they also serve you celery salary.

Unregistered

...

Unregistered

it was lame, but it was funny... it made me laughed heartedly for the first time after a long while...thanks!

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

Haha. Salary.

What's with the contemporary decorations of the cafe/restaurant and the well designed menu, yet they can't google "Wedges" before they print their menu?

Unregistered

okay... WHAT THE HELL IS THAT "brown sauce" that is served with mashed potatoes??!!
Er-lack!

oh.. they meant gravy.. i hope they meant gravy...
but what more do you expect from the people who came up with "wages" as wedges huh?

Unregistered

LOL the taukeh's London damn powderful!

Unregistered

I would like to have wages for lunch because I'm broke. I remembered I was at Elephant one time, they do serve bean CULT instead of bean curd. Check it out.

Unregistered

LAME!

Unregistered

wah.. veli keng wor u Kenny, so sharp ur eyes can c the spellin mistake :P
check out this funny direct translation of chinese food name into english. keke.. http://www.pjlighthouse.com/2006/09/18/chinglish-menu/

Unregistered

COOL SEH. pay 4.50 only. engrish.

Unregistered

Even if you did pay for the "wages" that cost Rm4.50, you would still end up losing money because wages are only bout Rm3.50 to Rm4 per hour or in this case "serving". You'd be a fool mwahahaha.

Unregistered

The best spelling error i found was at a cafe right beside the arcade in sungei wang/bb plaza. I think they wanted to say coffee - rm1.80 but instead used cafe - rm1.80.

I actually asked the owner if i could purchase the entire outlet lol. For those not in the know, coffee is sometimes pronounced as kah - fei which in this case was spelt as "cafe"

Unregistered

cbljkkj,

café is coffee in French ;)

Registered

Speaking of ENGRISH........ not made up but its kinda lame... few weeks ago while i was doing my stuff in the computer lab....when two girls were entering the computer lab and trying to slip into the inner row of the tables... One of them said " Cannot go in.... Got HUMAN"...
Just incase you are still wondering why it should be hilarious... i translate it for you in mandarin: " bu ke yi jing qu... you ren!"
Gosh.... You wont know how hard it was to hold back my laughter...

Unregistered

I know this place! De Crimson, right? went there on my last visit to Kuching. cosy place, it is.

Unregistered

Unregistered

You should post this in the Star. They might publish it and let everyone else have a good laugh at it. Or learn better grammar.

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

hahahaa... mikey is just being a real loser. awesome one kenny! lol

Unregistered

ija:

I know that cafe is coffee in french but the place that i went to was a chinese coffee shop. Im not doubting their knowledge of foreign languages but for starters, they are not a french for sure and the menu was in chinese and broken english.

Unregistered

typo above "they are not a french cafe"

Unregistered

You are serving their wages, not them...

imagine, you pay them rm4.50.
they pay you a few slices of potatoes.

who is serving whose' wages? =P

Unregistered

Technically speaking, you'll still have to pay them in exchange for some 'wages'!

Unregistered

kenny, keep it up. i think xiaxue once said something like, great people will get halangan one. if you get halangan from these airheads, that means you're great liao la! right?
:P

Unregistered

LOlz~~

Unregistered

Can't believe Xiaxue is quoted here.

Sometimes reading the comments can elicit more laughing time than the post itself. Which really wasn't that funny. Honestly. This is Malaysia where we see mistakes like this on a daily basis.Still very kind of Kenny to highlight it though, publicity+heads up on correcting their menu.


Unregistered

Yo,Kenny!

Good Job! :)

Unregistered

classic suck ups... if a post is bad have the balls to say it bitches... stop being lap dogs ur not gonna get anything in return...

Unregistered

ahahah, good one kenny, and mikey u dumbfuck go get urself a fuckin life u retarded bitch

Unregistered

Muahahaha...... we need the wages.... are u sill being bugged by the FIRST commentor? I found out how he actually looks like here!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ciG-Xs7mBwU

Wierd guy :)

Unregistered

need to pay RM4.50 for them to pay you "wages" and they didnt promise how much ah! that's a trap!!

Unregistered

where's this restaurant? what's the name?

Unregistered

You always come up with interesting things.... can't wait till I go to asia in a few weeks! woot hooT! your site makes me miss it so much!

Unregistered

I saw in a cafe in Japan outlet promoting Pizza as Triangle Hat.

Unregistered

isn't that Ah-Ha kuching?

Unregistered

Hahahhaa interesting, You pay to get wages!! Hahahahahahhaa!!

Unregistered

Kenny...you are really observant in the "bad Eglish" wor. Did you get them to alter their English or you just left it there for others to pay RM4.50 for the "wages"?? :P

Unregistered

Some one here said he saw funnier thing in other place and Kenny's not funny at all. ******* Well, wtf? Blog and let others read your *** funny *** stuff lah! This kind of "I can do better than you" people really get on my nerve! Kenny is kind enough to share his laughter with the rest of the world, and what have you been doing for the world?????

Unregistered

Who can blame us when you have a national language that ressemble so close to english. I am very confused sometimes myself. talking about confusion, our government is best at it. The government talk about wage increase for umpteen months it takes the private without notice to increase the prices together. I don't know if the government is acting in cohort with the traders or they already know something is 'cooking' with the traders. Or the traders take lead from the government on wage increase. I am damn!!

Unregistered

what a good way to laugh at all malaysians... thanks kenny, you did malaysia a favour by telling the world how stupid we are...

Unregistered

Not sure if you've realize, that the Chinese translation is also wrong. It's translated to potato chips. Broken English is all over the place now... However, everyone makes mistakes. The point is, we should find our mistakes, make corrections and learn from them.

Unregistered

complete rubbish.

Unregistered

i think what you wrote was actually mentioned in today's borneo post...haha...something about how the writer received a text message from a friend showing the menu that you posted

Unregistered

This place looks remotely familiar. It's very similar to a place in Petaling Street area. Can't quite remember the name of the place, but they sell home decor stuff and it had it's own cafe.

Unregistered

shhh.... ahaha...

Unregistered

is that a-ha.. i thought it had closed down already?

Unregistered

Interesting site =) Love your style

Unregistered

oo i know this place.... Ban Hock Road de arX?

Unregistered

HAHAHA..... crack me up why don't you.... funnneeeee

Unregistered

all you jealous, no sense of humour, mother fuckers should just fuck off. it's just some harmless goofy silly joke. i say, take that stick out of your asses but something tells me you people really like it up there. shame shame...

Unregistered

Hayooo!!!? Whey is my WAGES????
Can anybody take my WAGES order!!?

Unregistered

Abit of sharing on 'celery'.....Once in a wedding dinner at Singapore..My aunt asked for cutlery, then the waitress served us a plate of celery (We were there laughing).then after my aunt stress-out the word 'cutlery', the waitress take away the plate of celery, and for a few minutes, she served out a plate of 'cut-celery'(celery in pieces)..OMG.....interesting blog!!
