Short Talk:

Word going around is that the seat of Kuching South mayorship is cursed.

Of the three previous mayors that we had, one went bankrupt, one had a stroke, and the last one passed away while still in office. Goodbye Mr Mayor.

Another Reason For Kuching's Slow Development

Last time, I found out the reason why Kuching was developing so slowly when I encountered this road sign.

A few years have passed since then, but it seems like the construction firms here still haven't learnt their lesson. As I was driving down the road today, I came across this other road sign.



Note to construction companies: I reckon your building is gonna take a loooong time to complete if only one man is working on it.

Unregistered

At least they have a job and still working...

Unregistered

应该是"Slow, Men At Work"。
第二张照片就让我很好奇,真的只有一个人工作?

Haha, anyway... Malaysian signboards are pretty "meaningful" since some of them are being direct translated from another language.

Unregistered

LOL ~~

Unregistered

I'm kinda confused who put the "Slow men at work" sign there..

The boss or... the citizens ?

Unregistered

Hahaha. I don't see anyone there working at all. Lol.

Unregistered

Aw Kenny, give them a break. You make grammatical mistakes yourself :)... even in the very sentence u criticize them with! ---> I think your building is gonna take a loooong time to finish if you sent only one man to work on it. ---> it should be "send" dude hehe...


Unregistered

Unregistered

kenny, want some funy thing? u go to the stationary shop along ban hock road, near EON Bank, there's a shop that sells COCK for around RM3! ROFL!!!

i saw at the cupboard bag, written: "COCK, Rm3+", but i can't remember how much though.

i really paiseh to shot the word with my fone coz the old man shopkeeper is there. but still, that's a WIN! ^^

Unregistered

What could be worst??

SLOW MAN AT WORK.

Unregistered

At least they put up a sign to tell u they are slow.

Here in KK, they need no sign board and everyone knows they are behide scadule.

Unregistered

Unregistered

email me at mtsticker@gmail.com for more info

Unregistered

woah. you really look into such things ar. lol.
anyway the signs are funny. we don't find such amusing stuffs in singapore though lol.

Unregistered

Ha ha..
That were they grammar mistake..
sometimes grammar really bring lots of trouble
i remember around ten years ago, i had read a magazine, it mentioned there are some famous tourism place. The one that i remember was the the temple at Thailand, the temple management set a notice to inform visitor to take off the shoes before enter the temple. The notice was like this, "PLEASE TAKE OFF BEFORE YOU GO IN". What does it meant? DOes it meant you have to take off your clothes and walk in nakedly?
Another new that i had read was Singapore Lianhe Wanbao: Since the Olympic is getting near, most of the Beijing restaurant have change their meal menu to bilanguage. BUt they have did some mistake for the menu. For example: Gong Pao Ji Ding they called it as Goverment Abuse Chicken, Tong Zi Ji they called it Chicken Without Sexual Life, Ma Po Beancurd called as Beancurd Made By A Pock Marked Woman.
Oh my god, these prove that we have to be careful when using English.
He He...

Unregistered

i think what they are trying to say is , slow down your car (cause the signboard is at the roadside), man at work.

Unregistered

>>>SETEOBERI, LMAO IS LAUGH MY ASS OUT, HAHAHHA

Unregistered

Thanks Rennette... LMAO..!!

Unregistered

haha that is hilarious.. even tho its abit lame.

Unregistered

lolz... i've seen a road sign which said
SLOW
MANAT
WORK

and another
SLOW
MAN AT
WROK

goodness me.. i wonder what the tourist say when they read the sign.. so embaressing...

Unregistered

Don't worry about the tourists. A lot of ang mohs have pretty horrible English too. I've been in the US for 7 years and some of the handwritten/handpainted signs can make you faint.

Unregistered

lol now thats funny :D

Unregistered

i noticed this as well

Unregistered

LOL!!! One man at work. Ha ha!
