LOL is the best medicine.
Ah Beng wanted to find out how long it will take to fly from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo. So he calls up Malaysian Airlines and asked , “Sir, can you please tell me how long it takes to fly from KL to Tokyo ? The airline staff replied, “Just a minute”. Ah Beng replied, “Wow, that is fast. Thank you very much. ” and hangs up the phone.

Before I start, let me tell something about my Hokkien.
My Hokkien is so poor it’s so farny.
So near my dad’s clinic there’s a hawker selling food. I wanted to ‘tapao’ so I was telling him:
English: Later I come and take.
’Hokkien’: Ka kin wa lai take.
Hokkien: Dang che e wa lai take.
My sister came and I was asking her what’s the correct sentence, and I ended up letting my sister tell that uncle ‘later he comes to take’.
And today’s case. Same uncle, same me, same sister.
So my sister ordered Tom Yam while I ordered Fried Bee Hoon. Hers came first and she wanted to exchange mine with hers ‘cause she said her Tom Yam was too spicy. Ok change.
When the hawker brought me my Fried Bee Hoon, He was asking:
English: Eh why? (Asking why I was eating Tom Yam)
Hokkien: Eh zho ha mi?
Then I was like:
English: Err, she can’t eat spicy.
’Hokkien’: Err, ee be sek lak.
Hokkien: Err, ee be chiak lak.
And now I’m still not sure is ‘lak’ the right word that means ‘spicy’ in Hokkien. Zzz. Better learn Hokkien nicely.
Ohohohoh, before our Dikir Barat practice today, some of us went to KB Mall for fun, as in to have dinner together and play. Some of us as in Yih Zhe, Hon Shou, Zi Jian, me, and later Ee Sheon and Chong Yaw and Shen Yeow.
It was so fun in McDonalds today.
Well that’s what people do what. My brother once said his friend brought his own bottle to get Cola from a McDonald that allowed us to refill Cola on our own. And then machine was kinda out of sight from the workers.
And so the fun begins:
And so we happily walked from KB Mall to Hon Shou’s house for our Dikir Barat practice! One day I’ll upload the video here, I couldn’t get it ‘cause I don’t have a nice pen drive –_-. (*hint* *hint* *birthday* *present*)
I’m gonna go to Ipoh soon! Realllllllllll soon! And KL in June! Whee. Super excited to see popo.
Where there is no vision
