Came here for lunch after checking out from hotel. Lady boss took our order n recommended some “dishes” (not cheap ones) but we just wanted some simple food as we’ve heavy late brekkie at the hotel. We ordered fried hokkien noodle, Cantonese meehoon and a vege instead. Upon hearing our cheap order, her facial expression changed and walked away w/o even a smile. The same goes to the boss and the son as we observed while waiting for our food. It runs in the family I’m sure! Mediocre food, maybe I’m bias after the experience. Not gonna come back for sure! Afterall, this is not the only restaurant in gohtong Jaya!

We arrived at Gotong Jaya during lunch time around 1pm. It was peak season school holidays and there were many tourists and locals. We thought of trying out a different restaurant this time and walked into Restoran Tak Kee.
Before we were seated, the waiter asked the ladyboss whether would they do our business of 2 people (I assume they only accept a large entourage). We were seated on a table near to the cleaner.
They sent a waitress who couldn’t recommend any dishes and there’s no menu.
Only after awhile the ladyboos came. We ordered ‘mun yee mee’ noodles, fried otak otak and stri fry spinach. When we asked whether we can order single dishes so that we can order another dish, ladyboss rudely said ” We only have dishes for more than 2.” in a very arrogant manner.
The dishes were oily even for the stir fry veggies.
During our meals,another couple sat down on a table and after awhile left without ordering.Probably ladyboss doesn’t want to do their business.
The 3 dishes and a pot of tea costs us RM48. The dishes all doubled the price compare to Kuala Lumpur. This is expected.
Ladyboss didn’t say thank you or anything. That is rude.

London coffee shop’s take on F-word too rude for building owners

London coffee shop’s take on F-word too rude for building owners

Embedded image permalink

A storm in a coffee cup is brewing after managers of a cheeky London coffee shop were asked to remove their shop sign, with threat of legal action if they refused.

London newspaper the Evening Standard reported the owners of Fuckoffee on Bermondsey St in south east London received a letter from their building owner’s lawyer, requesting they “immediately remove the sign and make good any damage caused to the exterior of the building”.

If they refused, the building owners would remove the sign themselves or take the shop managers to court, the letter stated.

The lawyer’s letter said the sign went up without the permission or authority of the building owner.

A photo of the letter was tweeted on the shop’s Twitter account along with the words: “No humour please, we’re British”.

Supporters of the shop have started a petition, which the Evening Standard reported as reading: “They have had a few anally retentive and gormless people complain about their name and now they have their money grabbing corporate landlord demand they take the sign down as it is deemed to be ‘offensive'”.

It continued on to say: “We, the undersigned, confirm we have a sense of humour and find the continued attack on our beloved Fuckoffee an insult to freedom of expression, freedom of speech and humour”.

Calling a vagina a vagina instead of a body part

Texas woman hid loaded gun in vagina: Police

CHICAGO (AFP) – A Texas woman had a loaded gun hidden in her vagina when she was pulled over during a routine traffic stop, police said.

“The weapon had a round chambered and a full magazine of bullets,” the Waco police department said in a statement posted on its Facebook page which has garnered hundreds of comments.

Ashley Cecilia Castaneda is seen in an undated picture released by the Waco Police Department in Waco, Texas. PHOTO: REUTERS  

Ashley Cecilia Castaneda, 31, told police about the gun as she was being driven to the station after police found nearly 30 grams of methamphetamines and a set of digital scales in her purse on Monday (Sept 7).

“They pulled to the side of the road, the officers got out, asked her where the gun was, and the female said, ‘it’s between my legs’,” Sergeant Patrick Swanton told KWTX news. “It could have been extremely dangerous for everyone involved.”

The bizarre incident is not as unusual as people would think, he said.

“People don’t believe this happens in real life,” he said. “It happens much more than the average citizen would ever know.”

SLEEPING BEAUTIES? No, we’re not talking about beautiful women…

Politicians trade barbs over sleeping beauties

4:47PM Apr 10, 2015

By Adrian Wong

Social media is abuzz today with politicians on opposite sides attacking each other over MPs falling asleep during the Sedition Act amendment debate in Parliament.

Among the lawmakers who were subjected to scrutiny was DAP’s Serdang MP Ong Kian Ming (below, left), after Gerakan Youth chief Tan Keng Liang tweeted a picture of him snoozing during the debate which went on till 4.18am.

“One of the DAP MPs in Parliament… needs a pillow?” read Tan’s caption.

In a series of tweets, Tan continued to slam the opposition MPs for stealing forty winks during the proceedings.

“See how DAP people are now trying to justify their MPs need to sleep in Parliament.. They are always right. Even sleeping on duty is also right.

“Thirty percent of Pakatan Rakyat MPs didn’t attend Parliament the other day. When they attend, they tend to sleep on the job. Can Pakatan MPs be more responsible?” he tweeted.

Similarly, DAP’s Tanjong MP Ng Wei Aik posted a picture on Facebook of Gerakan’s Simpang Renggam MP Liang Teck Meng (left) sleeping.

“Laugh at Gerakan… Earning a living?” read his caption.

This was the third time in a week where parliamentary proceedings have lasted past midnight.

Deputy Speaker Ronald Kiandee during proceedings also ticked off MPs for taking pictures of their colleagues who had fallen asleep in their chairs, given to the late hour.

JUST WHAT IS A HEAD TRANSPLANT? It means that the person KEEPS HIS HEAD but gets another person’s body.
Published on Apr 9, 2015

Russian computer scientist Valeri Spiridonov is set to undergo the world’s first full head transplant, with the 30-year-old expressing hope of “success” in a pioneering operation he has deemed similar in importance to space travel while speaking in Moscow, Thursday.

Valeri Spiridonov (in Russian): “This technology is similar to the first man to walk in space. This is because in the future it will help thousands of people who are in an even more deplorable state than I am.”

Valeri Spiridonov (in Russian): “We’re experimenting, which lead to a relatively successful transplantation of the body, but then it was not possible to transmit nerve activity in organs and limbs. In that operation it did not have a meaning. Canavero overcame this problem. He has technology that allows the merging of neurons. And it works. We hope that this technology will lead to success.”

Russia: Meet HEAD TRANSPLANT volunteer Valeri Spiridonov

Italian surgeon: Head transplant volunteer has better chances than Gagarin

Revolutionary: Russian man to undergo first head-to-body transplant

Published time: April 10, 2015 10:20

Doctors seem to be a step closer to performing a breakthrough surgery: transplanting a human head onto another body. A Russian man with a rare genetic muscle-wasting disorder has volunteered to be the first to try the procedure.

“I’m very interested in technology, and anything progressive that might change people’s lives for the better,” Valery Spiridonov from the Russian city of Vladimir, told RT.

Spiridonov, a 30-year-old qualified computer scientist, works for an IT firm.

He said that his disease is getting worse every year, and usually people with Werdnig-Hoffman disorder – a disease that wastes muscles – don’t live longer than 20 years, so it would be a chance to prolong his life and help scientific research in the process.

“Doing this isn’t only an excellent opportunity for me, but will also create a scientific basis for future generations, no matter what the actual outcome of the surgery is,” he said.

The operation is set to be conducted by renowned Italian surgeon Sergio Canavero, who sees the procedure as comparable to space exploration.

“Russia sent Yury Gagarin into space with fair chances of dying. America sent Neil Armstrong to the moon with fair chances of dying. And the chances here are much, much better,” Canavero told RT.

Man undergoing head transplant could face a new level and quality of insanity, expert warns

Embedded image permalink

A Werdnig-Hoffman disease sufferer with rapidly declining health, Spiridonov is willing to take a punt on this very experimental surgery and you can’t really blame him, but while he is prepared for the possibility that the body will reject his head and he will die, his fate could be considerably worse than death.

“I would not wish this on anyone,” said Dr Hunt Batjer, president elect of the American Association for Neurological Surgeons.

“I would not allow anyone to do it to me as there are a lot of things worse than death.”

The problem is, fusing a head with a separate body (including spinal cord, jugular vein etc) could result in a hitherto never experienced level and quality of insanity.

Arthur Caplan, director of medical ethics at New York University’s Langone Medical Centre, who described Dr Canavero as “nuts”, believes that the bodies of head transplant patients “would end up being overwhelmed with different pathways and chemistry than they are used to and they’d go crazy.”

Boxer’s phone hits the canvas. Later, he did too

iPhone of the tiger: Boxer’s mobile falls out during match

On Friday, the referee in a super middle-weight boxing match had to temporarily stop the fight.

But not because of a knock out. Something hit the canvas before any blood was spilled.

Held in Florida, the match between between Ramon Luis Nicolas and Marvin “Papi Gallo” Jones was stopped because Jone’s smartphone fell out of his shorts.

The Toronto Sun reports that after referee Frank Santore Jr paused the fight to pass the phone to Jones’ cornermen, a clearly embarrassed Jones bowed to all sides of the ring as way of an apology.

It is a surprise to some that boxer’s shorts even has pockets.

It’s more of a surprise that he took the phone in with him.

It is the stuff of nightmares: a woman who reached under her bed in search of her two cats, expected to feel the soft fur coats of her pets, found herself instead touching human skin.

The 61-year-old woman in Palm Springs, Florida, had discovered a burglar who was hiding under her bed.

The man fled the scene and jumped a fence as soon as the woman, who has not been named, found his hiding place.

Coffee shops still serving up fake tea

Posted on March 22, 2015, Sunday

SARIKEI: Many coffee shops here are still using tea dust laced with food colouring and passing it off as actual tea.

Divisional health officer Dr Teh Jo Hun said many tea lovers are unaware their local coffee shop could be cheating them with the reddish-coloured tea drinks.

He said the questionable tea dust used by most coffee shops is obtained in bulk from suppliers and the composition is very different from genuine tea available in small packets.

“The simplest way to see the difference between the genuine and coloured tea is by putting the two products in two different glasses of preferably hot water,” he said during a health campaign at the Central Market yesterday.

“We would notice the water in the cup with coloured tea dust turning reddish almost instantly, whereas the water in the cup with genuine tea takes some time to turn into a light yellowish (shade).”

He added that the colouring substance used in the questionable tea products might be approved under the Food Act 1983 and as such may not be hazardous to health.

“But we consider it as cheating which is also an offence under the same Act,” he explained.

But he ended up vomiting everything out as he could not tolerate the heat from the burning tobacco inside his mouth, Malaysian newspaper Star Online reported, citing Harian Metro.

German court upholds man’s right to pee standing up

German court upholds man’s right to pee standing up

Published: 12:05 PM, January 23, 2015

BERLIN — A German court ruled in favour of mens’ right to pee standing up yesterday (Jan 23), after a landlord tried to retain part of a tenant’s 3,000 euro (S$4,559) deposit for allegedly damaging the marble floor of a toilet by sprinkling it with urine.

Judge Stefan Hank in the city of Duesseldorf said men who insist on standing “must expect occasional rows with housemates, especially women” but cannot be held to account for collateral damage. “Despite growing domestication of men in this matter, urinating while standing up is still widespread,” he said. REUTERS

The debate about whether men should stand or sit is no laughing matter in Germany, where some toilets have red traffic-style signs forbidding the standing position. There is also a derogatory term for men who sit and pee — “Sitzpinkler” — which implies that it is not masculine behaviour.
The incident reportedly took place at an appliance store in Costa Rica.

Woman’s breasts rot after botched boob job — but the worst is yet to come

The botched boob job resulted in her breasts starting to rot and gangrene set in 14 days later.

Laura’s life only started going back to normal after 18 months of suffering and three more operations — one of them being nipple reconstruction with another doctor.

A shar-pei cross has been found abandoned at a railway station along with a suitcase with his belongings.

The dog, named Kai, was tied to a railing outside Ayr station in Scotland.

The Scottish SPCA (Scotland’s Animal Welfare Charity) is appealing for information.

Inspector Stewart Taylor said: “The dog is microchipped and we were able to find out his name is Kai.

“We contacted the owner registered to the microchip, who stated they had sold Kai on Gumtree in 2013. Unfortunately they could not tell us the address of the person who bought him.”

Abandoning an animal is an offence under the Animal Health and Welfare (Scotland) Act 2006 and anyone found guilty of doing so can expect to be banned from keeping animals for a fixed period or life.

VIENNA (AFP) – A 12-year-old Austrian boy has suffered “massive and lasting” damage to his eyes after playing with a laser pointer, with his vision reduced by 60 percent, doctors said.

“We think that he was playing with a mirror and that the rays were reflected,” said Yosuf El-Shabrawi, chief doctor at the Klagenfurt am Woerthersee clinic in southern Austria.

“His injuries cannot be treated. We can only hope that the worst of the injuries heal themselves and that his condition improves,” El-Shabrawi said in a statement on Tuesday.

The boy’s father bought the laser pointer on the Internet where it was advertised as a toy for playing with cats.

KPDNKK issues RM1,000 compound on clothes outlet in Ops Bongkar in Kedah

“A survey conducted by KPDNKK found that the clothes outlet was offering false prices. They would raise the price of the clothes before offering a discount of as much as 90%.

“We tried to get the records for one month before the cheap sales but they failed to show the evidence, and our investigations found that the prices displayed were that of four years ago,” he told reporters here today.

Ridzuan said the outlet had been issued a warning to reduce all the prices of the clothes on sale within one day, and further action would be taken if they failed to comply.

“The owner of the clothes outlet has pleaded guilty and paid the compound of RM1,000 for both offences. Besides the compound, we also seized six bundles of cloth valued at RM1,000 as evidence, as well as the measuring instrument which had expired.

“The case is being investigated under the Trade Descriptions (Cheap Sale Price) Regulations (Amendments 2010) and the Trade Descriptions Act 2011,” he said.

Student sends police on wild goose chase over “abduction”

On Saturday, the student, who is studying at a polytechnic in Johor, lodged a police report in Dungun, claiming that she “escaped” from her abductors. She claimed that earlier, as she was about to leave her house for classes, she became unconscious only to wake up in a container lorry. She alleged that there were seven children with her in the lorry and her abductors were ‘three Kelantanese men’ based on their accents. She told police that she escaped as the lorry was at a petrol station in Dungun and called her mother to inform of the ‘abduction’. Terengganu CID chief Asst Comm Wan Abdul Aziz Wan Hamzah said the student only made a police report after her mother insisted. “She decided to tell the police her fake tale,” ACP Wan Abdul Aziz told reporters. After being pressed by the police following her conflicting statements, she finally admitted that she faked the whole incident due to “stress from her studies.” “After we complete the investigations, we will pursue charges against the student,” ACP Wan Abdul Aziz said.

Grandma had died in 2001, and buried with her was her hand phone. Grand daughter, Sheri, 22, missed grandma, and found comfort in texting her. Unknown to her, the phone company O2 had passed the number on to be re-assigned. The new owner of the number, believed the texts from Sheri were joke messages from friends.

He sent a reply, “I’m watching over you.”

“I felt sick when I read it,” Sheri told the Shields Gazette. “I was in shock and didn’t know what to think.”

Fined RM20 for two-sen arrears

The Port Dickson Municipal Council (MPPD) has issued Peggy Lim a fine of RM20 for “defaulting” on her half-yearly assessment.She had paid 2 sen less! The assessment was RM28.12 and she paid RM28.10 at the post office. Why didn’t she pay the 2 sen? That was because the clerk at the post office had rounded the figure to the nearest 5 sen. This was correct. The Government had in 2007 decided to round up or round down bills to the nearest five sen. An official from the MPPD Evaluation and Property Management division confirmed that Lim had indeed been slapped with a fine but could not explain why this had been issued despite her making the payment. http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2014/10/08/Fined-RM20-for-twosen-arrears-Woman-80-gets-notice-from-PD-council-despite-having-settled-assessment/

‘Traumatized’ man sues Baidu, counseling clinic over ‘homosexual correction’ therapy


The trial went underway on July 31 for a man who is suing the Chinese search engine giant Baidu along with a mental health counseling center that he found through the website while seeking a “homosexual correction” service that he says left him “traumatized”. The man, nicknamed Xiao Zheng, said he discovered the Chongqing SinYu PiaoXiang mental counseling center when he’d searched “therapies for homosexuals” on Baidu in August, according to Want China Times. The center, which uses electroshock therapy, boasted “outstanding sexual orientation correction skills with high success rates” on its website. Xiao Zheng said he was left traumatized by the electrotherapy performed on him, and filed a lawsuit on the grounds that it had damaged his health and violated human rights.

Shock the Gay Away: Secrets of Early Gay Aversion Therapy Revealed (PHOTOS)

Posted: 06/28/2013 9:00 am

Before the American Psychiatric Association (APA) declassified homosexuality as a mental disorder in 1973, aversion therapy was used routinely in hopes that it would prevent or eliminate homosexual behavior. … In the more brutal therapy sessions, the shock was delivered directly to the male patient’s genitals every time the patient experienced any form of positive response to the slides being shown to him. The following excerpt from a Farrall Instrument catalogue advertising electroshock therapy products details how the therapies worked: Aversive conditioning has proven an effective aid in the treatment of child molesters, transvestites, exhibitionists, alcoholics, shop lifters, and other people with similar problems. Stimulus slides are shown to the patient intermixed with neutral slides. Shock is delivered with stimulus scenes but not with neutral scenes. In reinforcing heterosexual preference in latent male homosexuals, male slides give a shock while the stimulus relief slides of females do not give shock. The patient is given a “slide change” hand button which enables him to escape or avoid a shock by rejecting a shock cue scene. … In the 1940s, homosexuals were also involuntarily committed to psychiatric facilities by their families, with the hospitals promising that the patient would eventually leave the facility cured of their “sexual illness.” Not only were they not allowed to leave, but they were often subjected to cruel and inhumane treatments, including castrations, torture drugs, shock therapy, and lobotomies. The surgeon most credited for the rise of lobotomies was Dr. Walter Freeman, who was best known for his transorbital lobotomy, or “ice pick lobotomy.” In this procedure, the surgeon entered the prefrontal area through the patient’s eye sockets, using an instrument that resembled a common household ice pick. Out of the thousands of lobotomies Freeman performed, up to 40 percent of them were on homosexuals. … Ultimately, the fate of the lobotomy would be decided by a pill. In 1954, a new drug called Thorazine began to make its way through state mental hospitals and was initially marketed as a chemical lobotomy. With a viable alternative now in hand that didn’t require surgery, the medical community turned definitively against lobotomy.

I HAD LOVELY LONG HAIR.To get into Singapore, I took the train as there were so many people that Singapore Customs and Immigration officers couldn’t cope. If you took the plane, you could be turned back, and that meant flying back to KL after being denied entry at the Singapore airport!Inside Singapore, you had to be careful where you went. Once, I was stopped at Bukit Timah Road by a police patrol. They warned me that I needed a haircut but let me off when I promised to get a haircut that same night. I gave the excuse that exams were going on.I went to a barber in Singapore only once. He cut my hair so short that I looked like someone at National Service (NS)! He lectured me as well about Lee Kuan Yew’s policy of short hair.After that bad experience, I got my hair cut at Raffles Hall by a fellow hostelite, Ong Bun Seong or Ong Bunski.Look at all of us with our long hair. I am on the extreme right at the back. Not too long but just nice! aaa … The Real Singapore


In the early 70s government offices in Singapore clamped down on males sporting long hair because it spelt gangsterism. For present generation readers who don’t believe this is true, the above poster from the 70s National Library Archives proves it. I remember an incident where a man with long hair was queueing up at a government department to pay his bills. He was told by an officer that he would be served last. The man was taken aback but quietly took his place. 

“The government is to step up the campaign against the cult of the long unkempt hair among males in the Republic. For some time now certain government departments, like immigration and schools as well as institutions of higher learning had been taking action against males with long and unkempt hair.  The campaign will take another step forward when all government offices dealing with the public will display posters in English, Chinese and Malay with the message: ‘Males with long hair will
be attended to last’ (20.06.1972).”
Malaysia’s Long Hair Immigration Notice

To be fair to the Singapore government, not only did this island discourage males from sporting long hair.  Other countries in the 70s followed the same trend. Cities like Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia, Seoul in South Korea, Melbourne in Australia and even Dublin in Ireland were strict with male students who sported long hair. I guess Singapore went just one step further. It included ALL males, young and old.

This happened every morning for quite some days. There were one or two good ‘detectives’ among our floor mates. They managed to eliminate all of us except for a guy whom they now considered a prime suspect. This conclusion came from observation, they later explained, of all who went into the cubicles in the morning. They finally caught the culprit in the act. When he went into a cubicle, they waited to give him time to get into his ‘business’. Then, one put a stool down in front of the cubicle door, stood on it, and looked down on the occupant. “Aha! Caught you!” he shouted. The culprit, I was told later, almost fell off the toilet seat on which he was squatting! When asked why he squatted, he explained that he was used to it back at home in his new village. All toilets there were squat toilets. From that day on, all freshies were taught to sit on the seat. (Today, a video of the incident would surely be circulating on social media!) Incidentally, when I was a lecturer in a theological seminary back here in Malaysia, a student complained that it was difficult ‘doing business’ in the toilet because all had sitting seats. “I’m used to squatting and it’s so hard getting the shit out when you’re sitting down.” …..

Warehouse installs European-style squat toilet because foreign workers ‘kept breaking the loo by standing on it’

By Daily Mail Reporter

A warehouse in Swindon has installed a ‘hole-in-the-ground’ toilet to cater for foreign workers, according to reports. Employees from eastern Europe apparently prefer squatting while using the loo, prompting managers to order a new toilet to match their requirements. Bosses at the DHL warehouse are also said to be infuriated after workers broke the traditional loo seat by squatting on it.

The distribution centre in Swindon, which transports goods for B&Q, has spent thousands of pounds on the new facility, according to The Sun.

Managers had previously installed signs instructing employees not to squat on the toilet.

A source told the paper: ‘Staff have been fed up with the toilet seats breaking and workers leaving a mess.’

DHL did not respond to a request for comment.

zvBINDING BOOKS IN HUMAN SKINAnthropodermic bibliopegy is the practice of binding books in human skin. Though extremely uncommon in modern times, the technique dates back to at least the 17th century.

The book that is bound to horrify: 160-year-old poetry volume is covered in skin of hanged murderer

xb By Daily Mail Reporter

By Daily Mail Reporter

It contains the works of Paradise Lost poet John Milton and to the naked eye appears to be like any other book from the 19th century.

But a closer inspection of this 1852 edition of The Poetical Works will reveal a macabre discovery – it is bound with human skin .

Executed murderer George Cudmore’s body was stripped of its flesh shortly after he was hanged for killing his lover.

Cudmore, a rat catcher by trade, poisoned Sarah Dunn with a potion of roasted apple and milk, laced with arsenic. He was tried and sentenced to death in March 1830, in front of a thousand-strong crowd in Exeter, Devon. Cudmore’s body was then sent to the Devon and Exeter Hospital for dissection and a portion of his skin fell into the hands of a Mr W Clifford, an Exeter bookseller.

The skin was used to bind Milton’s prose and the volume is now to go on public display for the first time after it was donated to the Westcountry Studies Library in Exeter.


This Harvard University Library Book Is Bound in Human Skin

Tests show 19th-century book is bound in human skin

In ‘good news for bibliomaniacs and cannibals’, scientists say binding of 1880s study of the human soul is itself human
theguardian.com, Friday 6 June 2014

Scientific analysis of a 19th-century book has proved “without a doubt” that its leather binding is made from human skin, Harvard University has said. After it emerged in April that, despite an inscription claiming that its binding was formed from “all that remains of my dear friende Jonas Wright”, the 17th-century book Practicarum Quaestionum Circa Leges Regias Hispaniae was actually bound with sheepskin, Harvard University set out to test the provenance of an unusual binding on a copy of Arsène Houssaye’s Des destinées de l’ame. Dating to the 1880s, the book includes a note by its binder Dr Ludovic Bouland, which claims it is “bound in human skin parchment on which no ornament has been stamped to preserve its elegance”. “By looking carefully you easily distinguish the pores of the skin,” wrote Bouland. “A book about the human soul deserved to have a human covering: I had kept this piece of human skin taken from the back of a woman.” http://www.theguardian.com/books/2014/jun/06/tests-19th-century-book-bound-human-skin …..

The Skinny on Harvard’s Rare Book Collection

Human flesh-bound volumes R.I.P. on library shelves

A few individuals give new meaning to the idea of spending forever in the library—their skin binds three of the books in Harvard’s 15-million-volume collection.Without extensive genetic testing, Harvard librarians still do not have the “foggiest notion” of how many volumes wrapped in human hide exist throughout the system, says Director of University Libraries Sidney Verba ’53. But they have identified three such volumes in the Langdell Law Library, Countway Library of Medicine, and the Houghton Collection. The three books range in content from medieval law to Roman poetry to French philosophy.




16 Slang Malaysians love to use

1. Leng Zai (or Leng Chai) / Leng Lui\

Leng Zai (or Leng Chai) meaning: Leng Zai comes from the Cantonese word 靚仔 which means handsome (boy). Leng Zai is more commonly used among Chinese, while Leng Chai is more commonly used among Malays and Indians, it’s just a matter of pronunciation.

4. Boss

Meaning: A word used to describe either the workers or the customers at a Mamak Stall (yes it works both ways)

6. Yum Cha

Meaning: Yum Cha is another word derived from the Cantonese language. Yum Cha (饮茶) literally means “drink tea”, it is an act of drinking Chinese tea and having dim sum for the Chinese. Nowadays all Malaysians use the word to mean “hang out” or to have a high tea of sorts.

11. Tapau

Meaning: Tapau comes from the Chinese word 打包 (da bao) which means take away (food).

15. Belanja

Meaning: Belanja is a Malay word that means “treat”, as in treating someone to food or drinks. https://sg.news.yahoo.com/16-words-only-true-blue-080000794.html —–

Swedes catch 40cm ‘rat from hell’ in their kitchen

PICTURES: A Stockholm family was horrified to find a monster “viking” rat living in their kitchen. Pest controllers who were called in to catch the beast found it measured 40 centimetres – not including the tail. sss

A family in Solna, north of Stockholm, had no idea what was in store when their pet cat was too scared to go into the kitchen.
“We thought it could be a little mouse, but after a while we figured it couldn’t be because it was making too much noise,” Signe Bengtsson told The Local.
Her worst fears were confirmed while emptying the trash a few days later when she saw a rat guzzling leftovers under the sink.
“It was right there in our rubbish bin, a mighty monster. I was petrified. I couldn’t believe such a big rat could exist,” she said.
“I couldn’t help but do the old classic and jump on the kitchen table and scream.” …
As the rat made more appearances over the next day, the family took to stomping around as they passed the kitchen to ensure they wouldn’t meet the rat from hell again. …
The rat got caught by the neck soon after, but didn’t die immediately and scurried away behind the dishwasher again. Bengtsson called her husband home to deal with the creature, which later died. He measured the rat to be 39.5 centimetres from nose to the start of its tail.

Coca-Cola apologizes to Edmonton family for ‘YOU RETARD’ message under bottle cap

a Blake Loates of Edmonton found this message under a bottle cap. (Facebook)

Coca-Cola has found itself in a bit of pickle after an Edmonton woman found the words “YOU RETARD” under the cap of one of the company’s Vitamin Water bottles on Tuesday.

Coca-Cola claims the mistake was due to a bilingual game that was intended to randomly pair English and French words together, with “you” stemming from English and “retard” being the French term for late. “The R-word is just something we don’t say in my family,” Blake Loates, who found the bottle cap, tells Metro News. “My dad is quite upset and is on a rampage.” And indeed he is. Loates’ father, Doug, spend the better part of Tuesday night penning a letter to Coca-Cola demanding an explanation and an apology. Doug’s 11-year-old daughter has cerebral palsy and autism. Both him and his daughter assumed it was the work of a disgruntled employee. Coca-Cola has offered their sincere apologies and claim that the contest has been suspended and the remaining caps in their facilities have been destroyed. http://sg.entertainment.yahoo.com/blogs/shine-on/coca-cola-apologizes-edmonton-family-retard-message-under-161819447.htmlWhen I lived in Auckland, New Zealand from 1978-82,  I had a church member who was a grocer.

Kang Lee Chuin, 52, was seen shedding tears after breaking the car windscreen in front of the company’s sales and service centre in Bukit Tengah here to express her anger and dissatisfaction. Kang alleged that the service centre had failed to fix a faulty battery on her Mercedes-Benz S300, which she had taken in for service on June 18 this year. “The staff gave me differing reasons why the car had not been fixed. “Once they told me the battery had to be sent to Germany for repair, but another said repairs were being done in Penang,” she said. … Prior to the malfunctioning battery, Kang said she had sent the car in for repair three times, due to a malfunctioning car keyhole and alarm system.

Doc who charged RM60mil loses appeal

THE highest court in Singapore has dismissed an appeal by cancer surgeon Susan Lim against her conviction on charges of professional misconduct over the amount she charged a patient from the royal family of Brunei. In a 109-page written judgment, the three-judge Court of Appeal said Dr Lim’s case was “clearly one of the most serious cases – if not the most serious case so far – of overcharging in the medical profession in the local context”. The court dismissed her claims that she was justified and there was no ethical obligation to charge a fair and reasonable amount and pointed out her approach showed she had shown no remorse. n the judgment, it ruled there is an objective ethical limit on medical fees that operates outside contractual and market forces. The court found that, given a doctor’s specialised knowledge and training, there arises an ethical obligation on the part of a doctor not to take advantage of his patient. And this ethical obligation to charge a fair and reasonable fee is not superseded by a valid agreement between the doctor and his patient, the court held.

Online flight tracker and travel planning site FlightStats recently released the Asian arrival performance rankings, and Japan Air Commuter came out tops with 95.52 per cent of their flights arriving on time. Air Busan trailed closely behind at 95.33 per cent, while Japan Airline’s other subsidiary J-Air clinched the third spot with 95.01 per cent. However, home-grown carrier Singapore Airlines came in 13th in the best performing list, posting a big drop from March’s 7th place. ….. The Japanese are known for their punctuality and this can be seen from their airlines’ performances – 8 out of the top 15 best performing Asian airlines are Japan-based. On the other extreme, Chinese airlines dominated the worst performing Asian airlines list, making them least punctual, according to the statistics.

Fake female doctor charged

Man accused of impersonation faces jail

MALACCA: A man, accused of pretending to be a female doctor to treat patients, has been charged with impersonation. Doctor not: Hasdi being escorted away from the magistrate’s court in Malacca.Hasdi Jamal Arifin, 26, from Pandan Mewah, Selangor, claimed trial to the offence of cheating by impersonation which carries a maximum seven years’ jail term or fine or both upon conviction. The bespectacled Hasdi looked calm when the charge was read to him before magistrate Ida Rahayu Sharif yesterday. He spoke softly when appealing to the court to reduce the bail of RM5,000.

Hasdi was unrepresented while none of his friends or family members were seen inside the courtroom. “I have only RM800 left in my bank account, I can’t raise themoney. Please lower the amount,” he appealed. The court then granted a bail of RM3,000 and fixed May 17 for re-mention to allow Hasdi to appoint a lawyer while Insp Suhari Haron prosecuted. Based on the statement of fact, Hasdi allegedly committed the offence on Jan 15 at Dr Norman Clinic Sdn Bhd at No 28, Jalan MJ1, Taman Merdeka Jaya, Batu Berendam, here by deceiving Norman Mohd Norwawi, 41, by submitting falsified documents pertaining to academic qualifications that convinced him to pay out a salary of RM8,280. He is accused of having done so by using the name Dr Norlizulaikha Jamaluddin.

MALACCA: With his soft and feminine features, the petite figure comes across as a prim and proper female medical doctor. Always clad in a baju kurung and headscarf, “Dr Ika” – the name the doctor used – managed to con several private clinics here with fake certificates and had himself hired as a locum at RM45 an hour. He was actually a jobless man who did not even finish his nursing course in two institutions in Selangor and Johor. Said to have given “extra attention and tender loving care’’ to male patients, his cover was recently exposed when he supposedly called a male patient on his handphone after hours. getimage.aspx The patient’s wife found out and complained to the clinic last Monday and internal investigations followed before the police were alerted. Malacca commercial crimes chief Supt Soh Hock Sing said a special team was set up to observe and gather information before an undercover operation was mounted. “We decided to act fast as it involved patients’ lives. So, one of our officers posed as a patient seeking medical treatment at the clinic. The man behaved like a real woman doctor and examined the officer. He even prescribed some medicine,” he said yesterday.

Police nab transvestite who posed as doctor

April 13, 2013

MELAKA, April 13 – The police have detained a transvestite who allegedly posed as a doctor and worked part-time at five clinics in Melaka Tengah here since January. Melaka CID (commercial crime) chief Supt Soh Hock Sing said the 26-year-old suspect had falsified an annual practising certificate to gain the confidence of potential employers. He said the man used a forged copy of the Malaysian Medical Council certificate to seek employment at the five clinics in Sungai Udang, Batu Berendam and Melaka Baru. He said the suspect, from Sabah, had also posed as a doctor in Perak and Pahang before moving to Melaka to avoid detection. Soh said initial investigations revealed the suspect did not complete his studies in engineering and nursing in Johor and Selangor, but was more keen in posing as a doctor to treat men. – Bernama

Coffin company uses sexy models to sell its productsA Polish coffin-maker’s calendar of scantily clad models has drawn criticism from the Catholic Church. Poland is the homeland of the late Pope John Paul II and one of the religion’s most devout heartlands in Europe (Screen grab from YouTube)

(WARSAW) A Polish firm that makes coffins has angered the Catholic Church by trying to drum up business with a calendar depicting topless models posing next to its caskets. One image from the 2013 edition of the calendar has a blonde model, wearing only a skimpy thong and with a snake draped around her neck, reclining on a coffin. In another, a woman wearing a crimson corset is depicted pulling out the heart of a man lying on a casket. “My son had the idea of creating the company’s calendar… so that we could show something half-serious, colorful, beautiful; the beauty of Polish girls and the beauty of our coffins,” said Zbigniew Lindner, the firm’s owner.

The dildo, measuring 23 centimeters in length and 8 centimeters in diameter, somehow got stuck in his intestines, doctors at Zhongshan Hospital in Xuhui District said yesterday. The dildo was inside the man for five days before he went to the hospital last Friday, when doctors failed to remove it. He returned the next day after trying other hospitals. Doctors found there had been a blockage of the intestines and damage to some tissue. “If we did not remove the dildo in time, the man could have gone into a critical condition,” said doctor Yao Liqing from Zhongshan Hospital. “We had decided to operate if we failed to take it out with the help of an endoscope.

Mural by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic along Penang Road a hit among locals for its likeness to the MCA chief. PETALING JAYA: The public have given imagination its full scope when appreciating 12 murals in George Town, likening one to MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek on a trishaw. A Kwang Wah Yit Poh’s journalist from Penang said today that many of his friends from other states took a jibe at him, requesting to see the “Soi Lek the trishaw peddler”. The journalist said he was initially puzzled by such requests, only to realise later that they were poking fun at the mural in Penang Road which they claimed resembled the MCA chief. The mural, measuring 15.2m by 15.2m, depicts an elderly trishaw peddler sitting in his vehicle, awaiting customers. Titled, “The Awaiting Trishaw Peddler”, it was one of 12 murals painted by Lithuanian artist Ernest Zacharevic, portraying life in the heritage city. a2 ‘Soi Lek the trishaw peddler’ ———————————————————————- On a tip from Sim Choon Hin HOW TO OPEN A MANGOSTEEN PROPERLY. a1 a2 a3 a4 a5 ——————————————————————– WARNING: THIS PARTICULAR POST IS ONLY FOR THOSE ABOVE 18 YEARS OLD (PG18) From Beng Leong Chew

Cross-dressing Chinese grandfather finds fame

A 72-year-old Chinese man has become an Internet sensation after his granddaughter used him as a cross-dressing model to promote her clothing store.

Cross-dressing Chinese grandfather finds fame Lu Qing, who lives in southern China’s Guangdong province, posted pictures of her grandfather dressed in an array of pink skirts, red tights and fur-lined women’s jackets to promote her online fashion outlet Yuekou. The images of Liu Xianping have since gone viral and seen him branded the “world’s coolest” grandfather by Internet users for his slender legs and modelling poise. They have also boosted his granddaughter’s bottom line. “Since the pictures came out, we’ve had a huge number of website visitors, and are selling five times as many clothes as before,” Lu told AFP. “Previously, we sometimes sold less than 10 items a day, and were feeling depressed about the business.

Odour-eliminating pants are hot seller in Japan

AFP RelaxAFP Relax – Mon, Nov 12, 2012

Underpants which are claimed to neutralise the smell of flatulence are proving a hit in Japan, whose hard-working businessmen seem to like the idea of breaking wind without getting rumbled. A Japanese textile company has developed a range of underwear which it says prevent unwelcome odours. “It took us a few years to develop the first deodorant pants that are comfortable enough to wear in daily life but efficient in quickly eliminating strong smells,” said Nami Yoshida, a spokeswoman for the company, Seiren. …………. The underwear is manufactured with niff-absorbing ceramic particles in the material fibres. Seiren developed the technology after being contacted by a doctor who wanted something to disguise the regular parps emitted by people suffering from irritable bowel syndrome.

Flatulence Underwear

OK, What the hell is Flatulence Underwear?

Excessive flatulence is the release of gases or ‘flatus’ that can be very foul smelling at times. ………….

Flatulence Underwear CAN help

There are no basic flatulence treatments, but much to the relief of others, there certainly is a way of controlling flatulence odor and keeping the foul smells away from under their noses. The answer to this problem is the use of a flatulence filter in ‘flatulence underwear’. …………… Type 1 Under-Ease Flatulence Underwear

First on our list is the flatulence underwear known as Under-Ease that has been launched by Under-tec. Under-Ease flatulence underwear is made of airtight polyurethane nylon fabric. In the underwear you will find a triangular cut that has been provided at the back for the easy expulsion of flatus. You can visit the Under-Ease flatulence underwear website at www.under-tec.com. Type 2 Shreddies Flatulence Underwear

Next on the list is the underwear from the makers – Shreddies. This has a powerful carbon flatulence filter that is placed inside the underwear and helps free the gas of its odours. Apart from the flatulence underwear, Shreddies also offers other kinds of underwear for both men and women that help keep out any kind of body odours. Go to the website www.myshreddies.com.

Type 3 Flat-D Flatulence Underwear Third is the flatulence underwear from www.flat-d.com, a company registered with the FDA. It has successfully been supplying flatulence underwear and other merchandise for controlling flatulence odor for individuals as well as medical purposes for the last five years.

Type 4 GasMedic Flatulence Underwear

Another popular flatulence underwear comes from GasMedic. It has an exclusive source-trapping filter that prevents the odours from coming out of the underwear, thus making it possible for other people to be in the same room as the patient instead of being driven away by their smelly flatus. You can take a look at it at www.gasmedic.com.

Nursing mothers have long taken issue with Facebook’s terms of service, which state that there should be no nudity in photos posted on the site. 2) Coordinate hacking attacks. Anonymous tried to coordinate a hacking attack on credit card company Visa’s website. Hackers met via Facebook and Twitter to plan the attack, codenamed Operation Payback. The hackers’ accounts were suspended by the social networks. 3) Share names with a celebrity. A girl named Selena Miranda Gomez was recently locked out of her Facebook account because Facebook thought she was trying to impersonate actress Selena Gomez. 4) Add unauthorised script or code to the site. Tech geeks, if you add any additional script that interferes with the site, you’ll get a friendly note from Facebook that looks like this: “Hello, Our systems indicate that you’ve been highly active on Facebook lately and viewing pages at a quick enough rate that we suspect you may be running an automated script.” You could get banned from the site for doing this, but if you raise a racket online, Facebook might restore access to your accoun 5) Take strange photos of your children. A woman named Lauren Ferrari posted a photo of her child pretending to breastfeed her younger sibling….Facebook deleted the photo and banned her for seven days. The site did not elaborate on its actions. 6) Are younger than 13 years of age.

ARISE Ridhuan Tee, you are now a Malay!

Written by  Hussein Hamid

I have now lived in Australia for close to 30 years. I speak English like a Malay speak English – no slang, no aussie twang, no use of that aussie favourite word “mate”…. ……… My Son Zack does speak with a slight Aussie accent but that is because he has born here and lived almost all his life in Australia. My daughter Terrina speaks Malay and English like any other Malay complete with her Ok Lah, Tidak Apa lah and all the nuances that makes one a Malaysian – she was born at Assunta Hospital and grew up mostly in Bangsar amongst Malaysians. My wife is Greek and has lived all her adult life in Australia – so she is Greek Australian and the only Malaysian part of her is the fact that she likes Popiah and can make a mean goreng pisang – but no Nasi Lemak, no Nasi Dagang (my two favourites!). What I am trying to say here is that we are all a product of the life we have lived….and even if we come into contact with others, it is really up to us to be who we want to be. I am comfortable being Malay who calls Australia home. Where does it say that a Muslim must be Malay? I can remember a time in the 60’s in London at Speakers Corner in Hyde Park and there was this Indian asking the West Indians around him to “Go Home – go back to your country – we British do not want you here!”. The image of that Indian asking the West Indians to go home has never left me – it was comical and yet sad. ………. And now I see the same situation in this guy Ridhuan Tee. Somewhere in all the zeal of becoming a Muslim he mistook being a Muslim and being Malay as one and the same thing! Why? Where does it say that a Muslim must be Malay? There are White Americans who are Muslims. There are Black Americans who are Muslims. There are Arabs, Burmese, Africans, Chinese, Indians and Russians who are are Muslims. Be a Chinese Muslim, not an ‘almost Malay’ Why can’t Ridhuan remain a Chinese and be a Muslim at the same time? Are there any Malays out there who want Ridhuan to be Malay? Or is it Ridhuan himself who became a Muslim to be Malay? Does he think he has been a Muslim long enough to qualify himself to be a Malay? What is it with this Chinese? How or when did be became confused that a Malay must be a Muslim and so a Muslim must be a Malay? And how come Jawi has not told this Ridhuan that he can be a Chinese and a Muslim at the same time? This Ridhuan is indeed a very confused Chinese who is a Muslim or is he a very confused Muslim who is a Chinese and wanting to be Malay? Did somebody tell him that he is now ‘almost a Malay’ now that he is a Muslim? Whatever it is I think it is time Jawi or some UMNO bigwig make him an honorary Malay and end his agony of wanting to be a Malay so much that he is embarrassing himself with his grovelling! Arise Ridhuan…you are now a Malay! http://steadyaku-steadyaku-husseinhamid.blogspot.com/

WAO: Stop taking media on anti-vice raids

Amidst news of a media pursuit to photograph naked women during a police anti-vice raid, calls have been aired for greater respect for news subjects as well as a stronger grip on journalistic ethics. Women’s Aid Organisation executive director Ivy Josiah said the police should stop taking media personnel along on the raids, especially to massage parlours. “Why should the media be there in the first place? The police should have never invited the media,” said the long-time campaigner for fairer portrayal of women in the media. “Over the years, whenever there is a raid, they (media have) tended to take photographs of naked women… The customers and employers have rarely been shown and this is sexist. “It is a common practice but it is humiliating and disrespectful to the women. The portrayal of women in the media has always been problematic.” WAO: Stop taking media on anti-vice raids ———————————————————————————————————— Malaysiakini

COMMENT Two weeks ago, the media was invited by the Selangor police to witness its anti-vice, gambling and secret societies unit in action. Media personnel gathered at the Puchong Jaya police station that night and were given a short briefing by the enforcement team. The team leader then told his 20-strong team that the police rarely bring the media along during a raid, reminding his subordinates to behave and not to embarrass themselves. …………. One senior male media personnel appeared extremely excited when he saw a naked woman in front of him. While training his camera on the woman, he scolded her in Malay: “Who asked you to cover (your body)?” …………. One suspected sex worker wore a short dress and in her haste, did not put on any underwear. As she sat down, several photographers and videographers noticed her exposed private part and quickly trained their cameras on her. When the victim realised what was going on, she rushed back to a room to put on an underwear. …………. Meanwhile, several female journalists were having a ball posing for photographs in front of the suspected sex workers. ………… But that night, the members of the media were the ones who embarrassed themselves.

Mall’s ‘magic’ response draws flak

Patrick Lee | May 31, 2012

An online uproar erupted after Paradigm Mall sarcastically told a Facebook user that he was free to solve its elevator problems with magic. PETALING JAYA: A newly-opened shopping mall has been flooded with unlikely publicity, after it sarcastically told a Facebook user that it can only solve its teething problems with magic. On Monday, Paradigm Mall patron Su Yuen Hsiang posted on the mall’s Facebook page that the lifts were problematic. Paradigm Mall responded six hours later, saying that its staff were looking into the matter. In a swipe at the mall’s services, another Facebook user Freddie Toh said: “Again Looking…” This comment presumably irked Paradigm Mall, who sarcastically replied: “Yes, Freddie, Paradigm Mall does not know magic. Cannot snap fingers and make changes. You can? Then we want to hire you!!” The response would later develop into a back-and-forth between the mall and Toh, who subtly attacked Paradigm for replying in such a fashion.

Japanese man cooks, serves own genitals

Friday, May 25, 2012 – 17:53

TOKYO: A Japanese artist cooked his own genitals and served them to five paying diners in Tokyo to cover the medical costs, in a bizarre act to raise awareness about sexual minorities. Mao Sugiyama had his penis and testicles surgically removed in March and kept them frozen for two months before dishing them out – seasoned and braised – to customers at an event hall on May 13, according to postings on his Twitter account and local police. Diners paid ¥20,000 (RM791) for the plate with a portion of genitals. Pictures published on a website appeared to show the meal came complete with mushrooms and a parsley garnish.

Saudi Arabia bans English language and Western calendar

Published: 19 May, 2012, 21:10

Saudi Arabian receptionists won’t answer your call in English anymore and reading timeframes and dates in business deals will require a calendar converter. Arabic is now the exclusive language to be used in government and private agencies, while the Islamic Hijri calendar is the sole datebook in Saudi Arabia, reports the Gulf News. The country’s Interior Ministry explained the move saying it’s an attempt “to preserve” both the calendar and the language.

www.thestaronline.com/news/story.asp?file=/2012/5/14/… – Cached KOTA KINABALU: Residents at a housing area in Tawau were sick to their stomachs when they discovered that a corpse in a water tank was the reason behind the unbearable stench in their tap water. About 2,000 people at Taman Sri Titingan in Sabah’s east coast noticed the stinky and milky water in their taps about a week ago and had complained to the housing estate’s management. Maintenance workers inspected the water tanks on a 18m tower and found the decomposing remains of a man in one of the nine tanks on Saturday. ——————————————————————–

    Mangoes In KL
    When I lived in Auckland, New Zealand from 1978-82, I had a church member who was a grocer. He said to me that all the grocers he knew were not happy with Malaysian shoppers. They would pick up a fruit, any fruit, and squeeze it, often spoiling it.
