The Malaysian Way.

One fler does the actual work.

9 other flers stand around and watch.

Niamah!!!

Let's have some fun here. What do you think the Prime Minister and any of the other 9 flers are thinking or saying? I'll start it off.............

Pak Lah: Oooooooooooohhhh....I'm feeling a little dizzy but "I'm fine, don't worry. Maybe I was tired, and the weather was extremely hot. Furthermore, I did not have enough sleep the previous night."

Okay, now it's your turn. Let's have some fun here.

Niamah!!!

Pak Lah : See, I can lay bricks in nice straight line. Yawn ...
9 flers in unison : Yes boss. You're the best boss. Nobody lay bricks better than you boss!

Pak Lah: hmmmm, i think Samy Value should be the best mini-moster (minister) in Malaysia, the excellent jobs he has done to the new court house, putrajaya buildings, etc. he produces more job opportunities you know.

Others: yes, yes, yes (with their tongues out like dogs)

PM : Do I do it like this?
Fella to his right : Salah bang.. kena letak cement dulu..
PM : Cement? Mahal.. Guna pasir lebih boleh tak? Cut cost sikit, then the savings I boleh guna untuk beli mansion baru ke, yacht baru ke, another aeroplane ke... Hmm banyak benda nak beli ni.

Pak Lah: You watch me karate this brick. Haittt!! Adoi!!....Niamah!!

Other flers(thinking the same thing): They don't call him Bodowi for nothing.

Pak Lah: "Are all Malaysian walls as wobbly as this?"
9 Flers: "It's these damn Indonesian/Nepalese/Myanmarese workers, Oh Great One - let them sleep in cardboard huts, give 50 cents a day, they still cannot learn shit from our trainers."
Pak Lah: "Where are these trainers?"
9 Sanctimonious Flers: "Sick day, boss, don't you know how many sickdays Malaysians are entitled to annually? You could take one too, if you need."

eantautjk said...

Pak Lah : Must put that brick like this, so later it will bocor. Then ask Samy to check. RM22mil beb!!

KSC said...

that was great....... errr guys, we have just walled ourselves in

Pak Lah: I can do this brick laying job should I lose the upcoming elections.....my new career!
The 9 others: Yes, Pak Lah, we will join you as that is what we do best..bodek the boss!!!!

Melvin Mah said...

You see this is the problem of most Malaysians: negative attitude. It covers the unwillingness to help with your own initiative, uncaring, mok-chui-min (dork) face, and pessimistic and unhappy...

No wonder why Malaysia was ranked 3rd in the worst attitude and behavior in Reader's Digest. Because of this.

Pak Lah: Like that, ah?
MP1: No, like this...
MP2: No, like this!!!
Pak Lah: (Sigh)...SAMY! Wer R U?


Aiyoh...how can you enjoy live when you are under one of those symptoms? Is it because we leave in the fear of being stuck in the mess such as crimes...big episodes, etc..that people is willing to avoid it?

Semi Value thinking to himself..'hmm, i will now need RM15.6 million to assess why the brick wall collasped and another RM115.6 million to rectify the wall''

since he likes to snooze so much i hv coined the term pharklah in replace of the word sleep. So whenever one wants to go to sleep, he/she can say, "i wanna go do a pharklah" now.

SO you can ask ur frens, "did u hv a good pharklah yesterday? Errr, not really lah. My wife was busy with her work and I had to pahrklah alone and I am not used to pharkingla alone.

OKla, enough of senseless jokes for now. I wanna go pharklah for a while.

Pak Lah: hey, you people, please dont jostle around me, after bloggers will
say that I faint when actually you all are pushing me around.

The Apple-Polishers all chorused in unison as rehearsed: Sure pak lah, you are alwsys right, you drowsily stepped into a hole that Samy did not patch up before this brick-laying. Ok everybody move away, give boss some air or he may fain_, ooopppps fall again.

Pak Lah (in cold sweat): Stop ampuh me, will you, get my personal doctor now.

9Flers : Wahh!!! And your brother can cook nasi kandar too?

Hi there, is this website for real? This is reaaaly Patrick Teoh blogging????
Nice to be able keep in touch with Malaysian news even though am so far away, but why has the government not clamped down on this kind of website yet, or are they too stupid to realise what's being disseminated about them on the world wide web? but hard to believe they are thaat dumb.... ?

HI anonymous. Yes this is really me. And I would appreciate it if you would not remain an anonymous comment-er. thank you.

Fler on the left: Err.. Tuan? Tuan harus guna alat ini
untuk letak simen.
Fler on the right: Ya, Boss, sila guna alat ini.
PeeeMm:Takpe, tangan aku experience in handling
goats. Kerja brick laying bukan susah bagi
tangan aku ini. I'm the PM, I should know
better. Kalau tak even, Samy will find a
reason to spend RM22mil to fix it. Worst
come to worst, Samy will blame you semua.
Meanwhile aku boleh balik tidur.
Fler at the back: Betul ke orang nie?

Drone 1: Boss, boss, photographer datang!

Drone 2: Cepat, amik tool ni, ha!

Boss: Photographer? Where?...As I was saying, we must make sure we don't waste tax-payers money! That's why we must do the job properly. If not, this swimming pool bocor, habis lah my laundry. So, from now on I want you to use only rectangle bricks, ok? See this one here? Okay, make sure all the other bricks are like this one, ok?

Drone 3 to 7: Hear or not? You can learn a lot from the boss, you know?

Gloved drone to himself: Salary...coming...must...hold...back...spatula...of...death.
