Boss, got hammer ah?
There is something that tells me that this is going to be a good weekend. First, my family and I are in our new house away from landslide central. Second, I found that this place we've moved to has wi-fi right next to the pool! So I can actually surf, update, email. All while sipping an ice cold beer and enjoying the view of bikini.....errr.....okay let's keep our minds on this update. And third, I have some funnies to share with you.
I am sure that you know that my family and I were going through a house move last week. And if you've ever moved house before you will know what a traumatic experience it is. But there was one funny thing that happened last week. The team of 1 Indonesian and 1 Bangladeshi who delivered and fixed my daughter's wardrobe (one of those plywood jobs from one of those Expo Perabot places) asked me, "Eh! Boss ada hammer ka?" I laughed so hard I think I scared the Bangladeshi. You're from a furniture company. You're here to deliver and put together a wardrobe made of wood. And you don't have a hammer???!!!
Today's Star carries a couple of funnies which I thought I'd point out to you.
The first one is really quite hilarious. It's got Najib Razak, the PM talking through his.......errrr.......(okay la you add your own word here ya?)! The fler is telling bloggers to adopt a code of ethics which some US-based society has issued. Suddenly what those American flers say are soooo important issit? But remember ah. He's telling BLOGGERS to do this ya?
What are these rules?
Tell the truth! Be responsible! Be honest! Be fair when reporting and interpreting information! Never publish inaccurate information! Distinguish between advocacy, commentary and factual information! Admit mistakes and correct them promptly! Never plagiarise! Identify links and sources wherever possible! Do not pander to lurid curiousity! Disclose conflicts of interest, affiliations, activities and personal agendas! Abide by the same high standards to which they held others!
He's telling all that load of crock to BLOGGERS???!!! I feel like leaving him a less-than-polite message on his 1Malaysia blog. Hello, Mr. Prime Minister I think you should first make that speech to all the flers at the NST, Star, Utusan, RTM, TV3/7/8/9, Bernama and whatever else 'media' you and Umno and the cronies own. Come on la. Tell us to behave ourselves issit? How come you never say anything about this to your own flers? Or did you?
Hahahaha....you quite a funny fler la, Najib. Oh of course you're a politician. I almost forgot.
A couple of weeks ago our old pal, Nazri said that our taxi's were worse than our toilets. That was because tourists complain most about our taxi's. Even more than our dirty toilets which they just put down as due to our 3rd World mentality I suppose. And now our taxi drivers are proving once again that they are a force to be reckoned with. They want Nazri to apologise to them. The demand was made by Azmi Md Yatin, chairman of the Executive Taxi Owners Association of Malaysia. Wah! I didn't even know we had an association of executive taxi owners. And just what the fuck is an executive taxi??? And just read this quote which the Star attributed to this Azmi fler. “The statement by Nazri is extreme and we (taxi drivers) from the Klang Valley unequivocally agree that Nazri must apologise openly”. Really ah? I'd like to hear Azmi even pronounce UNEQUIVOCALLY.
Anyway, the taxi flers are submitting a memorandom about this to no less than the Prime Minister AND the Deputy Prime Minister! And they are demanding Nazri relinquish his portfolio overseeing the Commercial Vehicle Licensing Board (CVLB) and if Nazri doesn't do what they ask they say they would ask all taxi drivers from various taxi associations in the Klang Valley to meet the prime minister to resolve the matter.
Wah! This is Malaysian democracy at work man. You can question and demand anything one. Well, except maybe why someone paid RMthousands for outdated laptops computers. Where all the Petronas money went. How politicians can afford multi-million Ringgit mansions. Why properly elected representatives can be removed illegally. Why...well something better than nothing ma. Right?
