Short Talk:

I never knew shooting stray dogs is legal in Malaysia, but apparently it is so in Taiping. Their town council hired some guns to kill stray dogs and some poor guy kena shot instead.

And people call me cruel for eating a snake.

Good Name For a Nail Salon

The owner of this nail salon must've got her inspiration during a boink.

Or more likely, she just didn't know the double-meaning of the word "nail".

Who the heck calls their nail salon "NAIL ME GOOD" anyway? Now we know all her customers will be going to her salon to get nailed good. Real good.

Hey! Maybe next, she'll open a massage centre, called "BANG ME HARD".

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*

P/S: I take what I said earlier back. Waddya know? It wasn't obvious to me at first, but turns out "Nail Me Good" was deliberately named as such to be tongue-in-cheek. The ladyboss said so herself. Go check out her blog at fionamarcusraja.blogspot.com.

Unregistered

hahahaha

Unregistered

haha good one!

Unregistered

Comment for ur short talk.

It is legal in Malaysia, Few months ago,The Selayang Municipal Counsil set a competition to hunt/slay abandon dogs with RM 15,000 as the 1st prize.They hv cancelled it due to petition and protest from society.
Insane.

I dont think u're cruel for eating snake tho..hehe

Unregistered

mayb it's not only an ordinary nail salon tat offers manicure n pedicure but also some 'other' services =.=

Unregistered

why kuching always have such bizarre shop names? it's so hilarious!

Unregistered

Hmmm.. "extra" services anyone?

Unregistered

Unregistered

8=Fa!!!!this year!

Unregistered

thats the intended meaning kampung boy....

thats marketing, that is how they stand out from the rest.

the name attracts attention, which creates buzz...

dumb de lor you

Unregistered

i think maybe she named it that on purpose la..

Unregistered

hahah yah... I think the owner named it that way to get attention. Quite a catchy name.

Unregistered

I think this is really creative and brave of the owner to do so. Sometimes its because of these shops, we remember them and we talk about them. Its effective and its fun too!! I think more shops should be like that instead of some Selena's nail or duno wat shit nail bar or typical names.

Unregistered

geee... i never knew that there are actually so many places with weird names in Kuching.

Good one :)

Unregistered

r u reading to get nailed?XD

Unregistered

Thats obvoiusly for marketing reason.. Btw, i'm considering to rename my massage centre :D

Unregistered

Or more likely, she just didn't know the double-meaning of the word "nail".

Or more likely, kennysia didn't know the real meaning of marketing.

Unregistered

Maybe they're in fact offering 'something' other than the regular nail stuffs, thus the 'nail me good'. =)

Unregistered

"Nail me Good!"

OMG! i just can't believe it.

Well, there will be a lot of desperate women wanting to get "nailed" at this salon.
Funny but the name is really good. Really smart too. hehe...

But seriously, i'll be looking for this place in Kuching. where about is this salon?

Unregistered

LOL, NAIL ME GOOD! I won't certainly visit that shop!

Unregistered

so observant as always :D

Unregistered

Its at RH plaza.
I reckon it's on purpose.

Unregistered

Hahah.... good 1.

Unregistered

her salon name is damn cool! kenny you dont make fun of ppl's puns okay you were the one who wanted to call yourself kanye sia wtf

Unregistered

hahaha one word cool~~maybe she is just being too creative~~haha~~

Unregistered

krazl
www.krazl.com

Unregistered

Yeah.. I saw this shop in Kuching. Was wondering the same thing. What a name but it sure is a creative one.

Unregistered

... or a restaurant call "Stuffed Me Up".

Unregistered

I wonder why they have all these crazy names come up in Kuching....
Kuching has lots of crazy ppl?? lol

Unregistered

The name looks creative and certainly will be able to attract lots of attention...Haha!!!

Unregistered

[bang me hard] seems better as a hardware store actually.. wooo. love hardware stores!!

Unregistered

HALLO! MY SHOP WILL BE CALL 'POKE ME GOOD'!!!!IF I GOT THE MONEY TO OPEN SHOP THAT IS! HAVE A NICE DAY!

Unregistered

ya, i went to a bar named "Pheasant Plucker", in Ontario

Unregistered

Something in the water in Kuching hor...Kenny, your home town is blessed with freaking creative marketing ideas.....or crazy ppl! :P

Unregistered

it works. the owner is getting free publicity now. haha

Unregistered

I'll open one call "Hit me baby!"

Unregistered

Customer: Nail me good.
Boss: With pleasure.

Unregistered

lol RH plaza next to Green Gallery. HAHA. Yes i do think its named for marketing purposes.

Unregistered

maybe she did it intentionally to catch ppl's attention... :) at least she caught ur attention and gotten free publicity now... haha :p

Unregistered

Who's gonna nail who? Lady boss you said?

Unregistered

it's true it's legal to shoot dogs in Malaysia... Even here in labuan they actually go to the house of the dog owner (whose dog they "apparently" believe is vicious) and shoot them. It happened in the housing behind my house. They nearly shot a kid when they were supposed to evacuate those ppl but the kid got left behind.

Unregistered

nailmegood
fatboysia

Unregistered

I wonder why u like to critic ppl,is it u're better or simply make ppl feel low?

Unregistered

who would like to bang kenny hard ?
jsut raise your hand in air !
wave it like you just dont care !
http://yk001nulben.blogspot.com

Unregistered

actually... "bang me hard" isn't quite right... "rub me hard" sounds a lot better, and it isn't actually a bad name for a massage/tui nah place... lol

Unregistered

Nail Patio in the sign board sounds like Fel Latio too :D

Unregistered

PORN SALOON in Puchong Jaya beats Nail ME Good anytime :)

Unregistered

Was in Singapore in Nov when I came across a cafe 'Talk Cock Sing Song'...

Unregistered

Dude, it's spelled SALOON, NOT SALON...

Unregistered

Yeah.. now she doesn't hv to pay for advertisement on one of the most read blogs.. So, Kenny, did u pay the shop a visit? Let's hv a pic of u wif pretty painted nails :P or.. more :P

Kenneth G. Wilson (1923–). The Columbia Guide to Standard American English. 1993.

salon, saloon (nn.)


have been pulled up and down through the years by the semantic forces of elevation and pejoration, and both words continue to be splendid examples of both euphemism and dysphemism. Salon has kept its original French meanings, “a large reception room in a large house” and “the collection of people likely to be present at a social affair therein”: Mme. Dumas held a salon on Thursdays. Our American penchant for gilding anything not already obviously golden has made us try to attach the suggestion of opulence and high society to more mundane spaces: hence beauty salons, tanning salons, and the like. 1
A saloon was a nineteenth- and early twentieth-century tavern, and the word came to suggest to many all that was unsavory about drinking and its attendant dissolutions. In an English pub, the saloon bar is a bit more refined than the public bar, and recently some of this elevation has returned to the better saloons in large American cities, although generally the use is self-conscious. But like salon, saloon too has been added to the names of pool halls, barbershops, and muscle-building parlors in an effort to elevate what may still sound and smell like a gin mill or locker room. Also, the saloon on a yacht or passenger ship is a public lounge or parlor, and in Britain a saloon is also an automobile style (what Americans call a sedan).

so what does a princess do when it rains?

There's this bar that is named 'Kuku Bar'. I know kuku is nail, but in cantonese, it just means something else. XD

Unregistered

It's true, you can nail someone there.

Unregistered

Unregistered

Here is the owner blog !!
http://fionamarcusraja.blogspot.com/
xD

Unregistered

i think its creative ....

Unregistered

Kenny, you meant to say "Bonk", not "Boink"! Boink is what you do on a pogo stick, man! Bonk was the pun you were looking for.

Unregistered

I doubt if the virgins would want to do their nails there... :-S

Unregistered

Business is to attract people after all.

Unregistered

HAHAHAHA KENNY, Kenny. you go open la, "Bang me hard", SELLING GUNSSSS~~~~~~~~~

Unregistered

just checked it out..nice interior and great concept..even though the names a little corny..but its 1 damn comfortable place to be..

http://fionamarcusraja.blogspot.com/
Thx to Xun...

Kenny, she thanked you in her blog. Go n see!

Unregistered

You're welcome Bjk. I think the owner is creative and smart ^^
Nice eye catching signboard and great interior design.. i think it's damn comfortable place to be too. >=]

Unregistered

This is really a GOOD one, Kenny! I was like laughing away. Ha!

Unregistered

Maybe is just attracting customer or the other way round.

Unregistered

funny!

Unregistered

well well, isn't someone embarrassed..

Unregistered

I thought the double meaning was pretty damn obvious. Guess not. Its sad not many people get it.

Unregistered

I like it! ^_^ kinky but it sells! and in a way, ngam also watt..just u all dirty minded tu~ hahaha!! but normal la.. sporting lah bah! boleh bah kalau kauuuu fiona~~! cheers!

Unregistered

Aiya Kenny, you dun have to keep on trying to explain yourself abt the snake-eating thing la. Ppl talk and just let them la. You can do better things with your time.

Unregistered

Typical of you,Kenny, to think everybody's English level is lower than your Ah Beng English.

Unregistered

sarcasticity do sells nowadays huh?

to annoy-nomous - heck why cant u just treat the post as a joke?

Unregistered

hahaha terrible!

Unregistered

me thinks it was direct translation from kuku saya cantik / lawa... somebody get the owner a dictionary/thesaurus...
i actually didnt know nail = bang.... 0:)

Unregistered

creative!

Unregistered

creative naming means free marketing! simple la...

Unregistered

i would get nailed there.

..100

Unregistered

banged.
nailed.
deflowered. ftw!!

Unregistered

nail me, bang me, bomb me..

Nail Me Good - Nail Patio and Building Materials

Unregistered

Add on:

Nailing the nail while let someone nail you.

Unregistered

Hey Christine, why are your comments so lame? LOL

Unregistered

My dear, I think the cruelty part refers to how the snake was killed before it was consumed - that itself was unnecessary. And the fact that you sensationalized it on your blog. I don't think you're cruel - rather silly and attention-seeking? yes.

Unregistered

Interesting..

But then again some might not even realized there is a double meaning to it..

As fro the massage centre, maybe one with a name "Squeeze it harder"? :-)

Unregistered

You are so lame for editing your post to cover your mistakes.

Unregistered

oh my god!
oh my god!
oh my god!
How come you can go to jay chou's concert for free while I have to work like a dog to pay for it? *jealous*!!!

Unregistered

Dear lame jokes are good,

You are really good.

P.S. Kenny Sia and team

Go Mr President of the Lamers and his fellow team members.

Unregistered

What made you assume the owner did not know the meaning of "nail me good"?

You gotta start giving ppl the benefit of the doubt. Geesh...

It was pretty obvious the owner deliberately named her shop that way. You had to go through all the trouble reading her blog to know this?

Unregistered

"Or more likely, she just didn't know the double-meaning of the word "nail"."
You think you the only the minority bunch around that know meaning of nail... so arrogant, so shallow.

Unregistered

Don't nail me!!!

Unregistered

HAhaha, Kenny got *ehem* by the owner's beauty

Unregistered

Perhaps Nail Me Good can be the preferred name of a coffin seller? :)

Unregistered


definitely attention-grabbing! ;)

Unregistered

haha bang me hard??? i wonder the government will ever permit such names ?

Unregistered


Arrogant fool. Yeah 'we' Kuching people need you to tell us meanings of words such as nailing, tapping, grinding. Sure fats. Sure...

Unregistered

she even got the blog for the shop??how u ask for tat??

Unregistered

Nail me good, Kenny!

Unregistered

Obviously it was named so to attract people's attention, but yeah, you didnt get it in the first place, huh...oh well...

Unregistered

Kenny changed the title of this blog from "Bad name for a nail shop" to "Good name for a nail shop".. lol :D

Unregistered

its for bussiness purpose...

Nailing or color your nail will only KILL your nails. we skins need 'air breathing' so do our shells do. If you coloured it, you blocked them, you make your own nails suffer..

Conclusion: Colour Nails = Bad health

Unregistered

ahem~ actually, the nail is already dead once it grows out from your skin just like your hair.. u got learn biology or not? might as well you say that putting color on the hair kills the hair.. duh~~~~

Unregistered

Jesus... Its the skin will affect
But still, it will effect the skin.
Noob

Unregistered

Its obviously a great name since you've now generated marketing awareness for it.

My friend opened a placed last year, I suggested "Nailed". Didn't think of it when I was in the middle of a nasty with The Boy - is that what you think about when you're doing it Kenny?

Unregistered

Fiona Marcus Raja is so clever!

Woohoo~

Unregistered

http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcarticles.nsf/pages/Nail_problems?Open


that guy with the name of Nails... dont show off what you learn in secondary school. Secondary school in M'sia is nothing

Unregistered

Woohoo~
www.vcao.net

Unregistered

Nails technically don't "breathe" like your skin! Painting the nail plates have not much effect, really.

Unregistered

i think if that shop was opened over here it would be closed down thanks to the Nazi s

Unregistered

Well, NaIL Me Good...
This really givs me the first impression of whts happenning to Jesus..
I don want to be nailed.. lolz

Unregistered
