So Typically Malaysian…

November 19, 2007 1 comment

NATIONAL EXCUSE FOR HAIR LOSS
Maggi Mee.

NATIONAL EXCUSE FOR BEING LATE
Traffic Jam.

NATIONAL WHEREABOUTS
“On my way!!!”

NATIONAL CONDOM
None. Most Malaysians still feel embarrassed buying condoms. So they rushed into a 7-11, hurriedly grab the nearest pack, any pack, pay and leave before the cashier can even blink an eye.

NATIONAL FRUIT FOR INDUCING MENSTRUATION
Pineapple

NATIONAL APHRODISIAC DRINK
Stout. Many swear by it. But after a few pints they start swearing at everything…

NATIONAL FAKE ILLNESS FOR GETTING MC (MEN)
Food Poisoning.

NATIONAL FAKE ILLNESS FOR GETTING MC (WOMEN)
Menstrual Pain

NATIONAL EXCUSES GIVEN BY WOMEN WHEN REFUSING SEX
Headache, kids not asleep, maid not asleep, mother-in-law around, early appointment, food not digested yet, aircond not cold enough,! aircond too cold, nail polish not dry yet, forgot to take the pill, sleepy,stomachcramps, period, haven’t remove make-up, haven’t shower, no water supply, going to watch “Santa Barbara”, depress, no mood, etc…

NATIONAL EXCUSES GIVEN BY MEN WHEN REFUSING SEX
None. Malaysian men never refuse sex. (oh ya??)

NATIONAL CURE FOR HEADACHES
Panadol. The “cure for all”. If it fails we have another secret weapon;
Tiger Balm.

NATIONAL CURE FOR DIZZINESS
Minyak Angin Cap Kapak.

NATIONAL CAUSE OF DIZZINESS (FOR YUPPIES)
Happy Hours.

NATIONAL INSTANT CURE FOR DIZZINESS (FOR YUPPIES)
The sight of a police roadblock. (;-o)

NATIONAL RUBBISH DUMP
Anywhere. As long as it is not your house.

NATIONAL MOST MIS-PRONOUNCED NAME
Carrefour. Sometimes even pronounced as Carry 4! On second thoughts, why bother pronouncing stupid French brands like Peugeot, Renault or Citroen correctly. I think it sounds better, when the local mechanics say “Pew Jeot”. When I was in school, Milo was always ‘MeeLo’, now that I’m sophisticated, I say “My Lo”. So don’t be embarassed saying “Carry 4” when the Mat Sallehs shamelessly pronounce orang utans as “rangutan”.

NATIONAL ROADSIDE DISTRACTION
The Bra-less Tourist. See how heads turn and traffic slows down when a bra-less Mat Salleh backpacker goes bouncing about on the streets.

World’s largest passenger plane carries passengers for the first time

Airbus A380 jumbo jet

Singapore Airlines flight SQ380, from Singapore to Sydney, took to the air Thursday and in the process made aviation history as the first commercial flight of the long-awaited mammoth flying machine, the Airbus A380.

I’ve never seen one of these planes up close. But I’m longing to. It recently made its first (test) flight into San Francisco and I was out of town. And sadly, neither Airbus nor Singapore Airlines invited me to take this first flight today.

But for those who did take it, it sounds like it was quite the celebration.

“The flight was spectacular, just truly awesome,” Thomas Lee, reached by cell phone as the plane pulled into the gate at Sydney Airport, told the International Herald Tribune. “I’m thrilled beyond words, actually. Just extremely excited. On a scale of 1 to 10, I’d put it at 12.”

Lee actually has a claim to aviation history that I am rather in awe of. He was on the first commercial flight of the 747, in 1970, the Herald Tribune reported, and now was on the first A380 passenger flight as well.

Yahoo! Mail

Yahoo! has made a couple new major updates to its Yahoo! Mail application that enables people to connect in a few more ways.

The new version of Yahoo! Mail now includes some intuitive communication features that make it a little easier for contacts to stay in touch. The first is the ability to send instant messages from Yahoo! Mail to mobile phone numbers. Mail users can now choose to send IM’s to mobile numbers in the US, Canada, India and the Philippines without leaving Yahoo!’s web mail interface. Users simply enter a mobile phone number, type a message and send it.

The second Mail integration is the ability to send instant messaging straight from Yahoo! Mail to Yahoo! Messenger and Windows Live Messenger users. This opens up chatting to millions of other IM users, straight from the Yahoo! Mail interface possible. These new features make it easier to connect with friends by converting emails to instant messages to text messages.

Yahoo! Mail IM and mobile feature enhancements will begin rolling out to users worldwide today. And if you are into adding a few new colors to the interface to spice things up, there are six customizable color themes available.

Coolest Billiards Table Made from a Volkswagen Bus

Coolest Billiards Table Made from a Volkswagen Bus

This amazing pool table was brought to Detroit’s Woodward Dream Cruise over the weekend, and it’s a fully-functional setup built inside of a first-generation VW bus. It’s unclear how many hippies go in for bar room games, but regardless, this is probably some of the coolest automotive furniture you’ll ever see.
