Can you believe this!!!

This really cracked me up!!! hahah... made me go bonkers when i saw this posted in karamunsing shopping mall in kk.. i've heard of serve no pork being bastardised to 'served no pork' meaning to say they didnt in the past but they do now!!! but this pic up here takes the top prize for the successful bastardisation of the english language.. hehe.. no pork service? lol... does that mean pigs dont wear waitressing outfits n serve you?!!??! hehehehehehehe... anyway, just thought this pic would put a smile on your face.

a long time ago.. maybe 10 years ago now.. when i was living in pandan jaya with beatrice in really horrible run down apartments zone, i saw another prime example of linguistic decapitation just by adding a single letter: hehe.. instead of 'baby sitter wanted'... the moronic advertiser wrote: "baby shitter wanted"................... hahahahahahhahahahahah beat that!!!

and this, ladies n gentlemen.. is a superb example of the quality of malaysia's public works. they paid literally millions to build sabah's mini putrajaya and look at it's condition now.. all the tiles they have put on the outer walls of the entire complex have had to be hacked off if they hadn't already fallen off onto the ground and smashed into smithereens! on the public's heads no less! so some greedy contractor out there is counting his dosh amassed from the million he save by using less cement gum or whatever u call it. and now another contractor is counting his million cos the govt has to pay for new outer walls.. if they'd done it right the first time, the tax payers' money could be put to better use! like to give us 2 months bonus this year! yeah, right.. wishful thinkin i hear u say! lol...

anyway, my last rant for today is the embarassment called 1Borneo mega mall..it was also put up sooooo superman fast that as you walk along the shops... you'll see patches of tile-less areas covered up by cheap tacky carpeting! the tiles hv literally exploded and cracked into millions of bits... cos of the shoddy work done in the first place. anyone who's gone out n bought tiles will know that a 20 by 20 tile is bloody effin expensive! money down the drain again eh..

i lied, i just thought about another thing to rant and rave abt.. what is it with sabah's unimaginativeness!!! property names have been flicked from others.. cant u tell? KK TIMES SQUARE, SURIA KK, BEVERLY HILLS APARTMENTS etc.. as if there isn't any other original names around.. lol.. for those of u who can remember who this character is.. lol.. i ever found a signboard in penampang that says: 'Lorong Flash Gordon'. I havent seen it in a while, but if i'm ever down that road again, i'll double check if it's still there!

haha.. ok.. nuff for today.. will post more pics of kids soon. lol... hubby away on a 4 day road trip with richard to sandakan for sabah's first bird fair... birdwatching.. something i can definitely live without! ;-)
