Short Talk:

Just came back from scuba diving off Sepa Island, north of Jakarta. Day-trip package is ridiculously expensive at 1.4 million Rupiah (RM540) including gear, but the experience was fantastic. I love it. I can finally now stay underwater for one whole hour without finishing my tank.

Too bad conservation here is virtually non-existent. Too many dead corals and man-made pollution there. My dive guide stabbed and killed a sea urchin just so he could attract surrounding fish to eat off its inside.

No, I didn't take any photos of that. Don't wanna get wrongfully accused again for "putting photos of others' misfortune to attract traffic to my blog." Heh heh.

Yes I know my short talk is longer than my actual entry. I don't care lah ok?

Bad Name For A Hair Salon

Spotted along Jalan Jaksa, a backpacker haven in central Jakarta.

"Welcome to Piss Salon. Would you like to find out more about our specials today?"

"Buy a piss haircut, and get a shit hairwash FREE!"

Piss salon...lol lol.

Unregistered

..............

Unregistered

LOL. people come up with weird names sometimes..-.-"

Unregistered

Did he greet you with "Piss on you"?

Unregistered

Maybe that salon specialises in a special hair treatment that cures dandruff, split-ends and tangles, and rejuvenates your scalp, making it more manageable and more able to withstand perms and dyes. =P

And as for your dive trip, it's sad and tragic to hear that. I still can't believe how "eco-tourism" as practised in Southeast Asia is still very much a complete farce; in the end, people still exploit the environment in pursuit of profits.

Unregistered

Hahahah...?

Unregistered

tats funny;P hows jakarta?

Unregistered

Heheh no problem lah put other people's misfortune on your blog. I still come to read whether got misfortune or not. When Sin Chew got road accident picture on front page I buy immediately and also to look for leng lui. Usually also see more mL of blood on Sin Chew photos than on Star (now if somebody read this no more nice pictures in Sin Chew - sob).

Unregistered

Unregistered

Feel crazy about the name....

Unregistered

Haha! Piss Salon. Again, you never fail to come up with wonderful encounters of shitty names.

Unregistered

Kenny!

Get a hair cut at PISS Salon and show us what its like! I am serious! Ha ha I wonder if the hair stylists are nice? Or do you think they are a pissy bunch?

Unregistered

i like your style,kenny! just blog watever the hell you want and don't give a shit about "unrelated" remarks! keep it up!

Unregistered

alamak.. what a crap name for a salon... shit la, what were they thinking off? pissin ppl off with their name eh? lolz

Unregistered

Killing Urchin ?
You should have posted the photo.

And you SHOULD have went in xD

Unregistered

Oh my... i never wonder ... kenny does have enemies.... i think he did a good job to keep everyone here updated with the other part of the whole...

keep it up kenny... your no.1 fan which hit ur page daily..

p.s. no gay lou here....trust me i am not... :)

Unregistered

Let's get serious, shall we ?
I've been to Sepa island, and sea urchin(Indonesians call it bulu babi) was considered a pest.
Last time, almost half of the beach was lack, covered in sea urchins. As you know, if you'been stung by a sea urchin (the black ones), the pain is quite annoying to say the least.
There are other menace to the coral other than pollution, there was a considerable population of crown of thorn, which eats coral.

About the salon, perhaps I can explain. There's a popular rock band called 'Slank' here, and they always give the 'peace' sign in every concert.
So, 'peace' in Malay tongue is pronounced 'piss' ...
Well, not every one can afford learning English, so I think, although a bit funny, it is actually sad.

So Kenny, are you still here Monday ? wanna grab some lunch ? My office is very close to jalan jaksa.

Unregistered

got food called mi sop la. soto is another story.

indonesian english is really not that bad. no english is worse than japanese english.

Unregistered

Ah...piss means peace in Malay...thats a relief! I still would not get my hair done at the piss salon though

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

sometimes, kenny, you try too hard. too hard to be funny. too hard for your own ood.

Unregistered

Mang Piss artinya apa sih... pipis... gw kok gak ngerasa ada yg lucu ya...

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

hahaha... funny kenny ^^ enjoy in indonesia! hmmm come read my blog everyone ellen1988.blogspot.com =D

Unregistered

"Piss" is indonesian slang for "Peace". May piss be upon you, kenny! :D

Unregistered

Unregistered

Oh this is gonna be a turn off for those who wants a haircut! Or maybe otherwise...who knows! Hahaha!

Unregistered

Unregistered

Wow as long as they dun piss on my head i am fine with the name LOL....

Unregistered

it's 6 steps not 5! haha. how's Jakarta?

Unregistered

gosh i baru don wan piss and shit on my hair lar... sure the salon inside is full of smells huh?

Unregistered

"Ladies & Gents"

what about the "disables" ??

Unregistered

POOR CHAP!
But watch out, every one of you got attention to his sign board. I am sure, you might have never got attention to hair salon boards, if they put a usual name. I think, the barber carefully and thoughtfully tried a good marketing move.
I am convinced that people find innovation at every bits if strive thoughtfully.

Unregistered

wah so many green eyes......haaa
cant take it, simple...dun read lah, cok..

Unregistered

indonesia's first language is not english. so it's not piss as in pee and no i don't think they're trying to be funny. if this was in the states then maybe it'll be funny but not in indonesia.

Unregistered

they should hv another one across the street.. "Poo Salon". lol

Unregistered

Hey piss is a mate of mine. We hump kuku together for fun. Leave me alone or i get balibob to wobble his beer gut in your direction.

Unregistered

piss = peace,

"piss" and "peace" have the same prenaounciation in Bahasa.
