“Western medicine is complicated whereas Chinese medicine is simple. To the Chinese sinseh, every single bodily malfunction boils down to heatiness, boils down to your liver. To heal your liver, they’d prescribe you bitter herbs to boil and drink. To speed up healing, you sleep. Under multifold layers of blanket.”
“Dear God, you don’t plant a tree in between two young naked teenagers and tell them not to eat the fruit. That is mischievous of you. Because you should know that every teenager is naughty, adventurous, and rebellious. And so they had fun. They did! Just like every loving child of yours would. But the one who wrote the bible termed it as disobedience, or sin. Why?
Had he never been a child before to understand what sin is? Sin is what you do that causes hurt or inconvenience to someone else. How did one bite of the forbidden fruit hurt you or inconvenience you?
But if these teens doesn’t rebel nor display naughty traits, wouldn’t they be classified as abnormal in today’s context? And what may I know do you want them to do inside the garden without clothes on and without tv or pub to go to? They are young, hot blooded, with an awakened libido. You want them to just stare at each other in full glory with gritted teeth and remain indignant towards each other? Because if they were to do as they were told by you, there wouldn’t be you nor me today. Nor Jacob, nor Sarah, nor Moses, nor Isaiah. They did what every natural growing up person would do. There’s no one else besides them. No one married them. It’s just her, and him. Unless you want to count the serpent in. You don’t consider that illegal fornication do you?”
“Out of curiosity, I registered with a dating site, earning myself 20 requests daily. From China doll swindlers trying to do a quick kill, and elderly women expecting to hook up some single handsome rich men. Lol… lol… they are all snapped up long ago dear! Don’t expect handsome men to be monks for life ya?
As the register of marriages gets filled up, the probability of dating single handsome rich men dwindles by the day. Even for those who are not handsome, nor rich.
The reasons why singles remain singles at a mature age are many. Just as many as why leftovers remain leftovers. I am not saying there are no longer decent older men around up for grabs. But for those who remain single, many have fallen in, others have fallen out. To some, it is a choice they hold on to for life. And they won’t let go of that choice. Some value freedom, others, because they do not have freedom owing to family or financial obligations. But for the many who remained single, it is because they suffer from a lifetime of communication difficulties, emotional disconnection, apart from physical and mental anomalies.
If you are older, but still wanted to attract single handsome men, looks like you have to settle for those that were once married. So watch what you write and wish for on your dating profile. If you had never been short of request to chat, if you are older, chances are these men are all married.
Otherwise you will need to continuously spruce up your image, to compete with those China dolls when it comes to looks. Which most men are attracted to. I won’t lie to you. They are your benchmark. Many pretty married women got dumped and cheated by their straying husbands in search of China dolls, no matter how well they take care of themselves.
Sprucing up your looks may win you attention, but that will also earn you countless heartbreaks too. If men are attracted to you physically, you can bet they’ll say anything, including lying about their marriage, just to bed you. For those who are honest and good, are not many. There are, but not many.
The internet has opened up the Pandora’s box that made stray dogs out of men. But men being men, were all born strays. They are all born hunters since primitive ages. Since young, men were designed to make life uncomfortable and silly for everyone. And that’s the truth.
Conclusion- I deregister myself from the dating app for good. Because I have a weakness. I am sapiosexual. I can’t feed on just looks alone. That alone makes me yawn.”
A Russian Jew was finally allowed to emigrate to Israel.
At Moscow airport, customs found a Lenin statue in his baggage and asked, “What is this?”
The man replied, “What is this? Wrong question comrade. You should have asked : Who is he? This is Comrade Lenin. He laid the foundations of socialism and created the future and prosperity of the Russian people. I am taking it with me as a memory of our dear hero.”
The Russian customs officer let him go without further inspection.
At Tel Aviv airport, the Israeli customs officer also asked our friend, “What is this?”
He replied, “What is this? Wrong question, Sir. You should be asking, ‘Who is this?’ This is Lenin, the bastard who caused me, a Jew, to leave Russia. I take this statue with me so I can curse him every day.”
The Israeli customs officer said, “I apologize, Sir, you are cleared to go”
Settling into his new house, he put the statue on a table. To celebrate his immigration, he invited his friends and relatives to dinner.
One of his friends asked, “Who is this?”
He replied, “My dear friend, ‘Who is this’ is a wrong question. You should have asked, What is this?
This is ten kilograms of solid gold that I managed to bring with me without paying any customs duty and tax.”
MORAL Of The Story :-
You can tell the same shit in different ways to fool a different audience, and no one knows your real intention when they are caught up with your story.
‘Kuih Bangkit’ my personal favourite Chinese New Year cookie, enjoys the same popularity with the Malay communities during Hari Raya, and particularly those from Riau in Indonesia, and the Baba Nyonya communities of Malacca, Penang and Singapore. Bangkit which means “rise” in Bahasa, traditionally has a little red dot tipped on the body (which turns pink when mixed with the flour), on each piece of the Nyonya version. And these pieces were usually of animal form — Goldfishes, Chickens, etc. casted from wooden moulds then baked.
This peculiarity of consecrating objects with red dots, is ceremonial, and has its belief rooted in Taoism. For it was believed that these red dots would bring man-made objects to life, hence it is with the annual initiation of the Lion and Dragon Dance by their troupes, and the paper effigies burnt for the deceased during funerals. Taoist mediums also dispenses yellow paper blessings written with red ink, or blood splatterings from their tongues, when in trance-like state. Believers would then burnt them, throw them into a glass of water, and drink from it, as divine panacea.
This shared delicacy probably has its roots all over the archipelago, the result of harmonious communal living, and the intermarriages between the two races, the Chinese with the Malay in the Straits, from whence resulted the Baba and Nyonya community.
“Lawlessness amongst enforcers are what keeps the rakyat away from patronising the public domain. Hence restaurants and eateries are on the doldrums. If not for the takeaways, fattening the wallets of food delivery companies, they would all have collapsed under the weight of these enforcers’ rampant issuing of summonses, subject to their whims.
One may never know when one’s luck could run out if we chanced upon them in roadblocks. Such as the most recent case which made headlines?
Everyone knows that driving without a license is an offence, but no one knows we can get away with it if we happened not to be wearing a bra. That is, if we can let our privacy go unchecked by allowing the officers a peek at your boobs. And the only corporal punishment meted to the accused since then was a transfer to administrative duties? Tak malukah pdrm? Semoga kami semua terhibur?
God knows how many of these enforcers has been guilty of picking up gullible women, demanding contact numbers on the pretext of issuing summonses, in exchange for sexual favours because of their incontrollable libido. And God knows how many that were remanded overnight in lockup’s, got their basic share of sexual harassment in exchange for freedom. Are these poor moral conducts excusable according to their operational standards when all of them were supposedly trained to uphold the law?
I think it is high time the SOPs are polished with CCTVs taking prominence when sparring with the public ‘on all occasions’ to regain back public confidence, rather than hiding behind the already tarnished badge. More than ever.”
“Even your marder can’t predict when you’re gonna fall sick or the ckt apek knows how many plates he’s going to sell today much similar to our composite index. So why are the daily Covid figures so amazingly consistent?
That tonight your tv announcer has to say “this week we’re going to see a drop in figures.”
Huh? Apa? She can predict?
I know today’s drop is due to cny holidays but why are the rest hovering at 3k cases daily with minimal fluctuation? Main guli, not enough test kits or that’s your handling capacity dear health minister? If that’s your handling capacity nationwide, how can your immunisation minister claim that we can handle 165k vaccinations per day?
Let me tell you how we can get 3k cases averagely per day. You take 150 from Penang and gave it to Sarawak, then take 55 from Sarawak and hand it to Kedah. And everyday, the same number of guli goes round and round like as if you only have 3k marbles inside your dompet to play with. Best part is, districts situated right in the middle of the jungles too have cases. How? Carried by pigeons? Especially those remote hard to reach interiors of Sarawak and Sabah that’s how they have so many cases? But the number of imported cases is minimal if you consider the spread is due to illegal immigrants!
What I meant was, your degree of fluctuation is a suspect, and if you want to lie, lie convincingly. Otherwise shut up.
The worst part of your whole exercise is leaving pockets of danger everywhere when your vaccination is ‘not compulsory’ unlike other countries. Which means you only order enough but bill the government for the entire population so you can masuk. By leaving pockets of unvaccinated people everywhere, total safety will not be imminent. Think lah! What happens when I am vaccinated but all my neighbours did not.
Is that how you guys tackle the Covid situation nationwide? Susahlah ini macam!

“Today is when other sectors of our economy is allowed to open up, two days before the much anticipated Lunar New Year, and today is also the day when most Chinese shops already wraps up their businesses, in this case has never opened since MCO. I am in awe over Wee’s brilliance which seems to outshine his cohort Sabri, who relied on him for accuracy, which goes to prove that he was never a Chinese to begin with nor is he in touch with the ground, which was expected, considering monkeys live on trees and thrive only on peanuts.”
“The greatest athlete of all time is aptly Nicole David, and she won. By a convincing margin. Just because you don’t like that sport doesn’t mean she’s not qualified. In her sports, she excel. Like no other. A record nine years plus without a single defeat as world champion. Not jaguh kampong. It’s world. Even when I’m not much a squash fan. Our country did not aid her in publicity nor funds. Not even Lin Dan or Maradona or Beckham ever reaches that far in their record number of wins. If you want it to be truly open as a one person one vote thing throughout the world, popular consensus would have seen China athletes or India sweeping the medal based on population size. And we pick based on results. Not a panel of biased judges who picks the qualifiers based on looks or their attachment to a certain sport nor how much publicity western programmes has decided on who to spotlight in their sports column daily. Only our harimau Malaya arseholes would have given their votes to Liverpool. Talking about loyalty and patriotism.”
Whilst idealists can keep on growling, living with the virus seems to be a more viable option. It’s been done in Japan. Say I am negative but I can’t see light until another one half years time when the whole world is vaccinated. Till then, no one can guarantee that the newer strains can be suppressed by this current vaccine. Brace for harder times and newer SOPs. Courtesy of the superpowers.
Approval and non approval is the marder of all corruption.
We demand a break down of Covid figures. We want to know the patients name, address and age. If they were all true, there is nothing for you to hide. With the hike, it also suggest our government fails. 76 ministers can’t even do one thing right.
The numbers are so predictable, the entrance and exit doors of hospitals and car parks would be jam packed. Are they? No. A commoners experience with the attitude of staff nurses in kl hospital or pg hospital would tell you they can hardly handle 100 cases a day, and tell the latecomers to report the next day, with most patients or suspects having to sit there for five hours waiting for the mo, not even a full fledged qualified doctor to attend to you, while the tension builds up to one of anger. Not a day goes by without patients or guardians arguing due to their slow operational tidak apa attitude. 5728? You must be kidding me. Show us the breakdown of all the patients with their addresses and particulars and I’ll show you an irresponsible government who would at the end of the day, try to convince us the relevance of the vaccine, and that they succeeded in controlling it. Just to win popular votes. It is so predictable. No wonder everyone is laughing. Why? Because Malaysians are all kiasu and kiasi. No one will risk it. Look at secluded orchards like telok bahang and balik pulau, everyday there are cases. Have you experienced road blocks? None. Even the police knew they were fluke. Ini macam kah how you put us citizens and the economy in dire straits?
Don’t listen to him talk cock. Even yesterday’s Covid figures. From the way the staff nurses operate in the general hospitals, shaking their lazy bums right and left , each hospital can’t get way pass 100 cases or tests given 24hrs. 5,049? Show me the videos they are running in full capacity because for the virus to manifest it takes weeks which means the icu bed figures does not tally with the statistics. Only 300 icu beds give and take were taken up. Don’t talk about nationwide. Just talk about kl hospital or the Penang one.
And if the figures are that high, why then did they announce the opening of night markets yesterday? Got nothing better to do?
Many Chinese families are booking tables in restaurants and hotels this Chinese New Year. Do they need to cancel it? As usual, silence. Then last minute about turns. It’s not the families who are strained. Doesn’t worry you does it?
Don’t blame the people. It’s not that people are not alarmed. It’s because they don’t trust you. Looking at the way you go about forming the back door government, your malfeasance gave you away. Your ministers caught Covid through call girls must be. That’s why we rely on the internet for more accurately information just when you, the government dispenses inaccurate statistics and makes double standard rules. These things you do in exchange for pocket money and popular votes. Look closely at yourself in the mirror. What did you do to individuals selling blessed water that is supposed to protect those who drink it from contacting Covid? What did you do to bikers still gathering in the open? Is the construction industry an essential? Are buffets essential each time the government servants attend seminars and talks? Other countries has gone ahead with vaccines. While you are still trying to pinpoint others when the fault is all yours. Does the rakyat have the right to relax interstate travelling or allowing foreigners to come in still? Are your enforcements still out there taking bribes rather than issuing fines and make arrrest? Can you remember how COVID started here? Did you make firm arrests and contact tracing straightaway? Were there rules to ensure factories comply with foreign workers lodging conditions?
If you can’t give up your dirty habits in a new world order, then I am sure you can handle a tongue sharper than mine.
And btw, don’t you think one mask is sufficient in between two people? In between waiters, service personnel’s and customers?
All that needs to be done is an official announcement by TM that his recommendation of TT was endorsed by Agong and the rakyat would all be gagged. Beit Melayus or non Melayus. You think Bung and his monkeys dare to defy the King?
Temporal laws begets Uncertain directions begets decisions like this. Can a businessman makes firm decisions whether to go online temporarily or permanently and for how long, which affects rental decisions, office equipment or even kitchen installation, when our government changes its stance bi monthly? The every two weeks thing has stretched to more than a year already and yesterday they hold firm to the decision of allowing foreigner arrivals when they are banning yet again interstate travel. We can’t even visit our parents but foreigners can go f around? As far as I am concern, this gang of pricks can go to Hell.
Tell me who is that munafik who screws Malaysia twice and still apparently got away with it? It just proves that cash is still king that could still buy immunity for the king of cash. Therefore the Sheraton move.
“Sometimes, after one receives a tip-off that ‘satay’ or ‘Snar Tay’ meaning ‘thee pieces’ in Hokkien , you do not need to fictionalise it with Zhenghe to give it weight. It can stand on its own. And it stretches way back before Zhenghe because Bukit Cina was there long before ‘Paramscura’ or who we commonly addressed him as Parameswara gave Malacca a name.
Yes, many says that Satay is from Indonesia but so are ‘bak mee’ and ‘bak pniar’ which in Hokkien means Pork Mee or Pork biscuit respectively. Also the word ‘hantu’ in Malay used to describe ‘ghost’ which in Hokkien really means ‘seldom meet’. Which is true. One ‘seldom meets’ a ghost. Tell me what does satay as a word or hantu means in bahasa melayu or Indonesia?
As a Hokkien, when we use the word ‘Bak’ by itself, we are referring to pork. Unles we call it ‘kay bak’ which means chicken meat or ‘Gu bak’ which means beef. And satay of that era also has skewers of pork intestines grilled the same way and dipped into the same sauce. I tasted that in the 60s at the coffee shops next to Cathay Cinema Penang.
Let’s just call a spade a spade. Don’t fictionalise it to make yourself feel good about it“
– Kris Lee 2021
Satay from Malacca was created on the spot by the ship cook of Admiral Zheng He.
The satay legend is like this.
When Admiral Zheng He paid a visit to the Port City of Malacca, the Sultan invited the Admiral to his Palace for dinner.
During the dinner, one of the topics discussed was food and the Sultan mentioned that he would like to sample some of the dishes cooked by the Admiral’s chefs.
It so happened that a ship chef was in the Admiral’s entourage and the Admiral asked him to cook up a dish as quickly as possible.
As the chef was unprepared at that time, he didn’t have any cooking utensils with him. He went into the Palace kitchen and saw what he needed.
He cut up some chicken and beef into cubes, marinated them and skewered 3 pieces of meat to each bamboo stick and cooked them over the open fire.
After it was done, the chef presented the dish to the Sultan & the Admiral. Both of them loved the dish so much that they insisted the chef prepare more skewered meats. After consuming them, the Sultan asked what was the name of the dish.
The chef when asked by the Admiral was dumbstruck as he had just concocted this dish. As he spoke only Hokkien and he skewered 3 pieces of meat to each stick, he just said “Sar Tey” meaning 3 pieces in Hokkien. That was how Satay came about.
If a child contacted COVID-19, issue the fine to the parents/guardian and school. It means their school and parents weren’t attentive enough nor take sufficient precautions to prevent them against it. That’s Confucius teaching.
If every good citizen including ministers observe good Covid practices, how and from whom did they contact it from? To me, if they follow orders, would they have gotten it? Thus, they should be issued fines and made to pay for their own treatment.
1) Why are Friday prayers allowed when other places of worship were asked to close?
2) Why are foreigners still allowed into the country when the rakyat is not even allowed to travel interstate? And at one time, disallowed even from one mukim to the next?
3) Why aren’t you more specific what is essential instead of generalising them into sectors? Except for beauty and clothing industry, your announcements which includes medical, transport, food, manufacturing, construction and essential services industry would have let loose 90% of the rakyat to be on the streets daily.
By this, I am saying that if we were to give the health authority the benefit of the doubt that the figures weren’t tampered with, then it has 100% to do with your foolishness. I mean it is no longer ironical if cases continues to rise. Because the general reaction is that if cases spike in certain areas or states, or when certain places has confirmed cases, the rakyat would generally stay away.
Let me be clearer. No one wishes the mco to be extended except maybe you.
My advice is if your country decides to hold a general election but the Covid cases are rising, just stay at home. It’s your right not to vote. Don’t worry about who should run the country.
“PDRM is just doing their duty and acting on complaints. I support them if they kick more of these youngsters off their motorbikes in Tj Tokong, Penang, zooming in and out of Tesco and the opposite school, as if it’s their grandfather’s road. No helmets, underage, speeding, not wearing masks, probably no license even and hopping onto motorcycles which are probably not even registered under their name. Already six offences. Should we sympathise them?
In fact I often wonder why there’s no action taken against these youngsters. But when there is, people are complaining about police brutality. Police brutality has been exploited to gain political mileage by many politicians to gain brownie points and to garner votes but In this case, to me, the police is never more right.”
“We dissolved Parliament but allow kindergartens to open. We disallow more than two people inside a private passenger car but we allow our public transport to run on full capacity. We were all asked to stay at home but allowed people to exercise in public places provided they observe social distancing. And we expect the numbers to subside? Wahai Malaysiaku!”
“Power does strange things to many people.
In Malaysia, there are three distinct tiers of power we are subjected to and exposed to daily. The hereditary type, the political kind and the conferred sort.
The first is by way of lineage, your blood line, and sits right at the top of Mount Mahameru. Above law even. This is a non-negotiable birth right that entitles you to be the overlord of your state or country depending on the written rules in your constitution lest you abdicate.
The second, is by offering your unequivocal service to your country and by virtue of your status and portfolio, it lends you limited powers to steer the country and decide what is good for the people. You and all your cohorts are part policy maker, part administrator, part maintenance manager, part salesmen and part approving body. And because there are many tiers and divisions, each regulating a certain function, the machinery has churned out countless little napoleons capable of turning hopes into nightmares, not unless you can close one eye to bigotry, or wait till thy kingdom come for your application, whatever it is, to be processed.
Situations such as these could only be overturned by ‘Orang Besars’, powerful aristocrats endorsed by government or king which gave rise to the demand for conferments and awards, given yearly by the Agung, Sultans and government of the day to the deserving who has contributed significantly to the smooth running and dignity of our country be it by way or service, cash or kind.
Currently the most sought after award are the Tan Sri or Datukship for civilians which is equivalent to ‘Lordship or Sir’ in the British context. These awards exudes a certain halo over your head, an aura as you float and walk and alludes one a certain edge, respect and leverage over others. Thus, the egocentric rich seeks this as a form of power and the eccentric wannabes try to earn them, because it paves the way for more opportunities.
But titles such as these had been seen to have landed onto the lap of many questionable if not dubious characters. Recently a Datuk went to beat up a security guard and upon investigation, were found to be a gang leader. So how did he earn an award? The same way he beat up the guard? Many of them do not possess the disposition to carry well the titles given and in the end, brought shame, unnecessary attention and publicity worldwide to our doorstep, no thanks to their unscrupulous conduct and behaviour.
This begs the question. Who proposes and seconds their applications, and how are they linked to the recipient? And how does the approving body regulate and function? Does their induction classes include moral studies jammed down the throat of every school going children nowadays?
The latest case involves yet another Datuk who slaps two kids in a hot pot restaurant. And the two kids so happened to be the son of an influential Datuk and the daughter of a prominent Tan Sri. And the whole incident was captured on video by a Puan Sri. Such drama leaves a distaste in our mouths one wonders how many Tan Sris and Datuks are we hitting, if one throws a stone at the crowd? Why are there so many around? And should a review panel be formed if not a kpi to ensure they do not slack in their conduct? And if this is going to be the case, then should the police be more stringent when they apply for gun licences? I think that is not too much to ask for.”
“The MCO is for 2 weeks. Why was the Emergency then lengthened till August? And what will it be like for spm and stpm students caught in between when the funds allocated for schools is much lower than the religious bodies? Elsewhere, even in neighbouring countries, online home programs have been developed and expanded to take centre stage permanently. What’s our plan for uni intake etc? We’ll see as we go along? The same way it takes every two weeks to decide on fuel prices and lockdown status? This indefinite indecisive delayed action of yours is taking a toil on every trader out in the open. The worse part is when you claim the Emergency was for the prevention of Covid-19 spread but on national tv, you said it is to arrest the current political and economic instability. Just exactly what is the kind of political instability are we facing, and how do you arrest economic difficulty by imposing an MCO which retards trade? Someone finds you incapable or a coup d’etat is imminent soon? If you would have been more careful in your mathematics, you wouldn’t have faced unequivocal support because you are a minority government seeking mandate by a majority opposition!
No one feels there’s a threat except you!
I think there’s a lot of paranoia rooted in your pedantic actions that warrants a serious rewrite of our laws to cope with election laws and your insecurity, so why force yourself to form a back door government when you know very well every right citizens democratic votes have been taken off them?
“If this world can agree on a Father’s Day, a Mother’s Day, a New Years Eve celebration, and an Earth Hour, why can’t we altogether agree on a 30 days Lockdown month? It’s a one time thing! The objective is clear. Just set the date United Nations! The world comes to a collective economic halt for a month except for essential goods and services, government compensates to sustain every citizen, moratorium sidelined. Do we really want to arrest COVID-19 with untested vaccine? So that corrupt government of the day can benefit, the pharmaceuticals and medical industries benefit and let the strain live? The problem is the virus multiplies and spread faster than recovery!
Oh I know now why we can’t. It’s an economic powered world.”
“In Malaysia, professional views in art doesn’t matter. The untrained collector who invested heavily into works that doesn’t measure up to professional standards of artistic ability, aesthetic value and judgement based on narratives is going to bury you with their experience, and prove you wrong, no matter how you justify your pick, with their lukewarm enthusiasm. That’s because they have something you need but lack. Funds. Funds to tweak opinions, funds to ensure sustainability, funds to decide marketability. Funds matter. You don’t. Unless you parrot them.”
