Finally, I flew back home to Kuching last night.
What a fun-filled and exciting trip over the weekend!
I had the best bunch of people to travel with and that makes a whole lotta difference. But more about the Nuffnang gathering, the Penang Bridge marathon and my unexpectedly interesting side trip to Ipoh a bit later. Right now I just feel like resting my legs and taking it easy.
While I was at the Kuching International Airport, I propped up my laptop hoping to go online by leeching off someone’s wireless internet service. Normally at the airport, I’m able to connect to an unsecured access point called “dlink” or “linksys” or one of those boring default names.
So I brought up the list of wireless connections available.
Curiously only one access point was available, and it was from a guy named “Poi Kee Teo”.
At first I was wondering, how come I can manage to detect the wireless connection of this Mr Teo’s house? The airport is so big and secluded, it’s impossible to get anything from even the closest residential house nearby.
And then I realised.
POIKEETEO MEANS “AIRPORT” IN HOKKIEN!
Kuching Airport sure has a funny sense of humour.
It’s sad to hear about what happened to one of my favourite wrestlers, Chris Benoit. The guy killed his wife and 7-year-old son before committing suicide himself.
When someone I grow up watching on TV commited something heinous like that, I don’t know what to feel.
hahaha poikeeteo… =_=” never tot of that…
So funny can !!!
for some reason once i see the word poikeeteo i already knew it’s airport….i am also using someone else’s wireless now LINKSYS..hehe…free internet

LOLS….That made me laugh big time! Sigh, I miss being back home…thanks for the pick me up!

What a creative name for airport. Just like “pangsai” is also found in Malay dictionery.
OMG…… this is one of the funniest ever…. LOVE IT LOVE IT…..
cracked my tummy over it!!
ur pose is damn funny
Benoit’s dead???……Unbelievable he killed himself and his wife and son…..What’s wrong with him…?…..Didn’t he realised that wrestling can’t be try it home….?
As Hokkie speaking person like me, once I see ‘poikeeteo’ I knew immediately it refers to the Airport. The hilarious is someone came out with that name for wireless network.. 😉 Kenny dear, you are so cute..
Kenny never fails to impress with all your postings..keep it up !. =)

I’ve been reading your blog for quite sometime…I first find your blog when I search on kuching… just to keep myself update with what’s happenning in kuching (hometown) while I’m working and living in KL (for almost 10 years). Btw, I’m in early 30s and a mother for 2 kids now.
Hardly get any news about Kuching or sarawak from here. Glad to found your ‘infotainment’ blog.
Keep up writing. 🙂

you all laughing bout the aeroplane! i laughing at our friend being photographed like movie star!
hahaha….never thought that Kuching airport wireless system would use such a name..and yet it’s in hokkien. Long time din go Kuching…
LOL tats freakin awesome!
i think it was a homicide rather than a suicide.
That was funny??? Knew what Poikeeteo was right away and I am not even Hokkien. Maybe it was the “plaque” built up in the brain that was slowing you down.
Speaking of Chris Benoit, that is what ‘roid could do to a person (mood swings, sterility, acne, etc). So be careful of what you take with regard to “body building” supplements. I never support WWE because of the rampant ‘roid usage and the wrong role model for people. Besides, there are better entertainment out there and don’t say pro wrestling is real.
poikeeteo in foochow also mean airport ?
poikeeteo in foochow also mean airport……..(previous one got typing error)
hm, i would like to meet that person that suggested ‘poikeeteo’ and send his name to Sultan for a Datukship! lol.
famous amos? famous kenny!
lmao! some sense of humour the Kuching Airport has!
that’s kuchingnites for you.
Poikeeteo, haha. Thats funny
I imagine KLIA would be feikeicheong consider that KL-ians mostly speaks canto
now hokkien even exists in alphabets.. cool..
oi kenny….. whats with the pic…
hehe… you think you dao bo kong ah!! haha
Haha! Love the Poikeeteo joke!
Look forward to hearing about the marathon and Ipoh, did you have their supposedly famous white coffee?
But one thing I’d like to see is the exterior of the new Kuching Airport. I was in Kuching late 2005 and the place was a mess. What does it look like complete?
aiks.. saw my face in d 1st pic too. btw, i thought it’s puikeetiau instead of poikeeteo?? haha. hmm.. diff place diff slang izit?
Christopher ah, foochow airport is ‘puikeeteong’ with ‘ng’ at the back la. That’s ‘poikeeteo’ definitly Hokkien dude.
Hahaha… I like the first picture…
Superstar sitting somewhere at airport allowing fans to take photos XD
haha.. That consider as joke or funny or sia soi??
LOL, sometimes hokkien is spelt in so many ways that its not obvious to tell at first sight, until you hear the actual pronounciation
Benjamin, what ‘sia soi’? can’t you differentiate between joke and funny?
I am honoured to share same surname with Kuching airport. My username also ended with ….teo. Furthermore I am also kuchingite.
LOL~~~ it’s funny! but i wonder, how if those ppl don’t know hokkien will end up with so many question marks in their head! especially ang mo hahahaha..
GEEZE!!! hahahahaha thats ubber farneee man!!
Lol… hahaha… this is really funny. Lucky that you know the word in hokkien. If not, there should be a misunderstanding about the airpost system.. Lol… But I’m wondering… why they use the word in hokkien? *puzzle*
that was funny. haha. and that’s a very nice pic u took at kuching airport. thumbs up.
kuching ppl mostly hokkien and teo chew ppl? i tot mostly fuk chow ppl?
That 1st pic damn stylo lor
poikeeteo not air ticket meh???
no la, air ticket is “puikeepio”…
Nice entry anyway, kenny *smiles*
Touching hearts with Malaysian culture. Uniqueness counts… even in a wireless network name.
lolz… should try la..
There is wifi in kuching airport but its at the KFC outlet….
good that kuching airport has free wifi… i arrived in london heathrow airport 2 weeks ago and tried to connect to the internet using wireless… found out that they don’t give free connections… everything also need money.. Â£Â£Â£ somemore… stupid… ahaha…
WALAO EH.. Laugh die me -.-
I like this post… Never thought the wireless network’s SSID can be so funny..
OMG this is so lame!!
lolz. u made my day. miss kuching…havent been back for years
