Short Talk:

Too many things to update, too little time.

If Thais Speak Hokkien

Reader Hugh Koh sent this in to me from his Bangkok tour bus.

I don't know what to say.

Maybe they just wanna show people where the toilet is.

There're actually many many Chinese people in Thailand, and some Thai folk (especially those in the south closer to the Malaysian border) can speak Hokkien. So they do know what it means!

Unregistered

I told my friend I live in Sarawak and he was shocked and said how can I live in a Kingdom of Corruption. Apparently he got the idea from Wikepedia which is read by millions around the world.

Abdul Taib Mahmud
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Pehin Sri Dr. Haji Abdul Taib bin Mahmud (born 21 May 1936 in Miri, Sarawak, Malaysia) is the current Chief Minister of Sarawak of Melanau descent.


[edit] Personal life and education
He undertook his early schooling at the St. Joseph's Schools in Miri and Kuching, before receiving a Bachelor of Laws from the University of Adelaide in South Australia in 1960.

Returning to Sarawak, he worked in the judiciary until 1963 when he joined the State Legislative Council of Sarawak, where he held various ministries in Sarawak and the Malaysian Parliament, before succeeding his uncle, Abdul Rahman Ya'kub, as the Chief Minister of Sarawak.

He is the father of Sulaiman Abdul Rahman Taib. He is better known as "Bai Mao"(白毛)in Chinese which means "White Hair". Being the Chief Minister of Sarawak for almost 27 years, he has successfully and securely made Sarawak as a kingdom of corruption.


[edit] Corruption and Sarawak's logging industry
Charges of deep corruption have surrounded Taib Mahmud on numerous occasions and the dominance of Sarawak's political elite including Taib Mahmud's family in the logging industry is well documented [1]. Most recently a foreign wire agency reported on March 29 that Taib has been implicated in a 1.1 billion yen (RM32 million) timber export kickbacks.[2] It said nine Japanese shipping companies, which transported timber from Sarawak, had allegedly failed to report some 1.1 billion yen in income over a period of up to seven years.The report claimed the money was paid as kickbacks to Sarawak officials via a Hong Kong agent linked to Taib and his family.

The results of the logging industry under Taib Mahmud is that less than 10% of Sarawak's primary forests remain, logging many of the ancestral lands of many of Sarawak's indigenous communities, despite their continued petitions and road blockades [3] where forceful dismantling has led to several deaths and regular violent coersion by the Malaysian army, police and logging company enforcers [4].

The Sarawak State BN is also Bang Sai.

See how Pak Lah allocate the position for BN leaders from Sarawak? One Junior minister only?

Same as what our oil is being distributed, 95% to West Malaysia and balance 5% to White hair Croc.

I know that it is funny, but still...
It is so funny that it shows (I am stereotyping and generalizing here) that Malaysians are quite ignorant.
Different languages will always sound like something else in another language, have a laugh, then get over it -_-;

Unregistered

Laura...whats a nice young girl like you doing in a rape site?

Jonny...take a chill pill, there are many different kinds of humour in case you didn't know. and yes, this kind of humour is also used in ang moh countries.

Kenny...amusing pic.

Unregistered

bang = town
sai = sand

they dont need to dig holes in sand to do it....

they hv better and cleaner loos than in malaysia

Unregistered

Jonny - the multiplicity of languages in Malaysia is one of the major reasons I miss being at home. It makes life more entertaining.

(Example: a mat salleh friend saw a 24-hour 7-Eleven in Malaysia and thought it said they were selling 24 types of "jam".)

Sure, you should respect other people's cultures...but you should also be able to find humour in diversity.

Unregistered

My friend did tell me about a story where his tourist guide mentioned about some common Thai language sentence like "Pritt Lam Pah" or something like that. Oh wait, it is a Hokkien or Thai??

Unregistered

Believe it or not that my 7 years old bro actually laughed like shit at tis photo. Well so did I.
well My bro pretty much understood what it said since his favourite movies are the Singapore movie "Just follow law" and the pg 18 show "Ah long PTE LTD" recklees I noe but wat can u say?
