Short Talk:

AD: EPL football site saikaiball.com is back this new season with a new layout.

To kickstart the 2007/2008 EPL season, saikaiball.com is giving away 3 football club T-shirts for the Liverpool vs Chelsea match prediction on the 19th August. Football fans rejoice!

Sarawak Bird

This is the Rhinoceros Hornbill.

It is the state bird of Sarawak.

We love this bird very much. We love it so much that, we call Sarawak the 'Land of the Hornbills'.

That is why you can see images of this bird everywhere in Kuching.

We are so proud of our bird, we even erected a giant bird right in the middle of the BDC roundabout.

When you come in from the airport to town, the first thing you see is our bird.

You may think that our bird looks normal, but you are wrong.

In the morning, it may look just like any other metal bird.

But at night, our bird transformed into something very different. That's because we zhng our bird with the same neon lights that Ah Bengs use to zhng their car.

I call it... TERMINATOR BIRD!

Hear hear, the bird has spoken.

Our metal bird in BDC looks more like a transformer. As I scrolled down I was expecting another autobot fabrication by KennySia. You may call it Big BDC, short for Big Birds Don't Cry. Neither do they fly.

Unregistered

haha..terminator bird..a good 1..pretty tho

Unregistered

Why? Coz they're screwed (to the ground) and have metalic nuts, heavy ma....

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

dude..seriously..

Unregistered

thats one ulgy bird...

Unregistered

i dont get it either :SSS

Unregistered

Thanks to KennySia for reducing the tempature.

Unregistered

the bird is damn ugly ....

Unregistered

OMG! Is that new? I didn't see it last time I was in Kuching. That terminator bird is awful! What kind of a first impression is that?! They should leave it unlit or just lit with spotlights at the bottom or something!

Unregistered

EU SUCK! LAME @$$ POST. eu arhx noobx. suckazz.

Unregistered

the horn thingie is actually hollow inside.

helps to echo its mating calls apparently.

not working too well eh? it seems to be on the endangered species list.

Unregistered

it could have cost the state council rm50 million to erect that Bird-minator, another rm20 million to maintain it over 5 years, with a rm50 option to erect more bird-minators around kuching town.

bird-minator looks nothing less than hideous, scares the shit outta little kids, and pound-for-pound cost more than a ferrari. and most importantly, serves no purpose whatsoever. this is how our council wastes our tax money......

Unregistered

every time if you pass by you bow at the bird it bring you goodluck......try it ok

Unregistered

I probably shouldn't say this coz everyone love that bird so much, but I have eaten that breed of horbill, and to be honest, I actually don't like it's taste, compared to other birds it size, it's not so good, had it in soup but wasn't that great. I like it deep fried with Thai chillie. Kind of reminds me of the times I ate dog, turtle, shark fin, insects and cat, but I don't think I should continue my comment as everyone gona get grossed out one meh.

Unregistered

we don't have hornbills in Miri. only in some signboards. we have seahorses. >.

Unregistered

Now most EPL videos got banned in youtube, luckily still got saikaiball. Btw, at Sportsminimal.com you can check all the daily EPL score, picks and analysis too.

Unregistered

That's a serious bad lighting. Reminds me of the Proton Ah Beng Gen 3 in TV Smith's blog:

http://www.tvsmith.net.my/duasen/010205_beng.html

Unregistered

that's a hornbill with dragonfly wings ok?

Unregistered

i got d terminator feeling... =P

i heard that its beak is empty in d inside

Unregistered

THAT, is an ugly bird. The last time I was in Sarawak it wasn't there...=.-

Malaysia and their 'art' ain't something I can understand.

Unregistered

Wow, they moved back the big bird to the roundabout. Before I left kuching beginning of the year, the bird was at the roadside, somewhere near the RH plaza.

Unregistered

Hey, big bird at ur place? I got 1 & 1/2 big betel nuts back at Penang. Erected at a round-about too. Made from silver metal. Funny how people can be so creative!!

Unregistered

Hornbill ? i like it too.

Unregistered

the wings look so 'out'! those are dragonfly wings! the whole thing is ugly.

Unregistered

The hornbill sculpture looks a bit like a fly to me coz the wings does not seem right.

Unregistered

well, a terminator bird as an icon is better than a 'mutated lion with a fish tail that just don't seem to stop vomitting'...

Unregistered

minister: we are running low on funding, any ideas guys?
minister's posse: sir, we need to create a gimmick to attract more funds to come in...
minister: i know, hows aboout a terminator bird? it can be made out of metal!
minister's posse: not strong enough to convince the funding... unless we add some lights...
minister: good idea, lets add some colorful changing lights!
minister's posse: walau eh, chun leh... lets get the job going so our new funding will flow in!!
minister: what are you waiting for then?
(and thus terminator bird is born)

p/s: dun sue me, saya tade duit

Unregistered

Awesome bird.
I can already see people shuffling around the bird.
Screw the Melbourne shuffle, people around the world will come for the Sarawak shuffle.

Do "the bird", do "the bird"!

Unregistered

还以为可以变成 Transformer Bird.

Unregistered

haha, at least we choose a big bird as a state symbol, not a small bird:P

Unregistered

That is one hilarious bird! Thanks for the laughs on an early Tuesday morning.

Unregistered

I was at an international conference recently and they had a cultural dance show before the dinner. One of the dances was the Iban Ngajat and the emcee was describing Hornbill to us. She had me in stitches when she said this - "Hornbill hunting is now banned because the birds are extinct." LOL!

Unregistered

I love my bird. Twitty

Unregistered

Ugly or not, like all things, we'll grow to love or hate it. Like this lyrics: " ... You'll have me suicidal, suicidal, suicidal..." (pull the plug!)

Unregistered

They should make the bird higher.. so its like.. looking down on us.. watching us over the fly over.. its inbuilt infra-red camera with super zoom capabilities and speed trap installed CCTV.

Unregistered

just another obvious way for pek mou to generate income for himself and his koncos.
how else can he charge more money for useless fugly decos ard town using cement and building materials only he has the license to sell?? costs: 10k, charge govt to pay 10k + $XXX consultation fees mah.

who doesnt know?

Unregistered

??! The authorities should give the metal bird it's dignity back and remove those neons; it looks like the signboard for some sleazy nightclub now.

Unregistered

nice way to make the metal bird fly...

Registered

haha

Unregistered

Funny lar u.. Zing the bird pulak

Unregistered

...... oh k....... ROFL. quite weird.

Unregistered

Hey dude, I bet the"Zhng' artist is the same guy who designed the neon signs for Blue Sky Bar

Unregistered

yukss.. i don't like that bird..

Unregistered

Ha ha...My son call it Iron Bird!!

Unregistered

wheii.. that's not my comment.. son??

Unregistered

upsssss..

Unregistered

Hmmm…. I think our govern is into ultramodern and high-tech kind of things, for them this is creativity, I suppose in order to catch up with the era of technologies, looking towards the ultramodern eras the world is pursuing into, we have to feed people’s mind with everything ultramodern and high-tech so their eyes will be open to see further into futuristic-the futurist arts is one accomplishment. Creative! That bird does not at all looks like God’s given Rhinoceros Hornbills. On the other hand, I wonder how will we tell our children one day, hey look, that’s how rhinoceros hornbill looks like? The child will probably scratches his head, looking at the metal bird and believed. Hehehe!!!

Unregistered

I didnt know that the KUCHING has such a big BIRD...

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

This is a great post. I love the ending. Sure made me laugh. Had to control otherwise the Mat Sallehs here think I'm crazy.

Unregistered

Sarawak is known as the Land of the Hornbills not because Sarawakians love the bird very much. But it has got to do with the legends surrounding the bird among the Iban people. Both Kenyalang and Singalang (a Brahmin Kite) Burung are two of sacred birds among the Ibans and there is even festival called Gawai Kenyalang. kenyalang is derived from an iban word and not a Malay words. Sadly, due to deforestation and hunting pressure, oth birds are very rare already and will become just mentioned instories for future generation!!!

Unregistered

This pilfering of the state fund got to stop!
