"Read this lah"

Most knows about Singlish, which is very popular in Singapore. "Don't play play", "I scratch your back, your scratch my back" that's what we heard when we watched the popular Singaporean sitcom, "Phua Chu Kang". The show was put under pressure by the Singaporean government to use proper English instead of Singlish few years back.

Here in Malaysia, everywhere, in market, "Kopitiams", shopping mall , even in corporate office, we can hear the Malaysian English. "Oh, Like that la..", "Why you don't want ler?", "Ok bah, take la..". I have a few friends from oevrseas asked me "What does la means?" Some don't include "leh", "Lah", "Bah", etc when they speak but the way the pronounce the word very funny. This is a list of what I heard :

1. "Have you fat this document to Mr. So and so?" - actually he means that "Have you fax this document to Mr. So and so?"

2. "Try this su, see can fit or not?" - Means "Try this pair of shoes, see whether it fits or not..."

3. "I bought this at Bolibart" - "I bought this at Boulevard"

4. "Let's go to Spling" - "Let's go to Spring"

5. "Please put this notice at the Show How" - " Please put this notice at the Show House"

6. "Have you call him regarding the ma-chi-ner-li?" - I have been wondering what the heck he talk about until one day I realise that he was talking about machinery.

7. When giving out phone number, "082-XXXXXX", 0 will be pronounce as jilo.

8. Affordable = Affordtable?????

9. Pizza = Pija?

10.Quotations = Kuatatsyen?

11. Original = Oligina?

12. Park = pak?

13. Wira = Wila?

14. Box = bot?

15. RHB = ah ler H B?

16. Reserve = li seve?

17. Saturday = Sakterday?

18. Courier = Kolea?

19. Amount = Ah mao?

20. Office = Offik?

21. Hello = Hallo?
22. Color= Car ler?

and some call me "Bajila". Excuse!!!! My name is Vajira not Bajila
etc, etc,
..... list to be continue.

I don't mean that I am very good in English. I just feel funny that why some can't try their best to speak better English. I am learning and try to improve too. "Ok lah, I am lazy liao. Enough for now. "

CNY is just around the corner

Most of the chinese are now busy, preparing for Chinese New Year. Some are busy painting their house, some are busy cleaning their house and some are busy shopping and visiting the saloons. Some look great after coming out from the saloon, some still look the same after coming out from the saloon (err...I mean some wasted their money at the saloon, spend and still look the same), and some who are "less fortunate" look worse after coming out from the saloon. Whether they like it or not, once their hair has been trimmed, there is no way for them to get back the hairstyle they have before they went to visit the hair stylist.

Me too, went to saloon for trimming my hair. Were hoping to have a new look, but turn out kinda disappointing. I still look the same after trimming my hair. Damn! Wasted my forty bucks. Never wanna go back there again. Firstly is because my hair style still looks the same after he trim my hair. Secondly, because of the hairstylist is not friendly maybe because of his business is well established in Kuching. Thankfully, I didn't come out from the saloon as if I am having a bad hair day.

We love our pet as much as we love our family members, whatever we do for ourselves, we will do for our pet too. We groom ourselves and we groom our pet too. My Fiance's mom has brought his two lovely pet to the pet shop for grooming.

Some pics of animals having bad hair day or bad haircut:

A cat on the street with lion hair cut

"Don't look at me like that, I am just having a bad hair day after I used the wrong shampoo..."

The chinese crested, he or she not having a bad hair cut or a bad hair day, that is just how he or she suppose to like.

Have you ever seen a Ninja Poodle?

Poodle that is transformed to become a Ninja Turtle. Maybe his or her owner is a fan of Ninja Turtle.

I like this one :
This is nice

I am back to work

Finally I am back at work, Feeling better, recovering from my flu, sore throat and headache. This is the 2nd day I work for this week. First day of working for me was Wednesday. I were unable to go to office for work for two days (Mon & Tue) because of the flood and last two days because of I was sick. I felt terrible for last two days, feeling that my head is heavy and my running nose making me unable to sleep well whole night.

I received a few SMSes and a few messages in my Facebook from colleague and friends who are very concern about me . Thank you to everybody for your concern I hope that I will feel much better tomorrow. Thanks to my fiance too, who always be there whenever I need him. I didnt expect that he will do so much for me. Darling, you are the best for me, I am so lucky and so thankful to have you.

Thanks to everyone.

Not only I missed my work, I missed my aerobic classes too. My aerobic class ended for this month last wednesday because of CNY is coming soon. I can't wait to go back to my aerobic classes again next month. I hope that I won't get banned from joining aerobic class next month because of my injury.

It's "winter" in Kuching Today.

I feel so lazy when I woke up today and I were thinking how nice it would be if I can continue sleeping in my bed under my blanket, hugging my pillows. Too bad I cant because I have to go to work today. Feeling bored right now. That's why I log on the blogspot and add a new post now. It's cold today. If you just came back from overseas, you will feel that is hot right now here in Kuching because it is 26 degree celsius. 26 degree celsius is considered cold in kuching because it is unusual. That's why I said it's "winter" in Kuching today. I ever experience -2 degree clesius when I was in Australia during winter time. I had a terrible fever when came back to Kuching 1 year ago. That was my worst fever ever. Now I am adapted to Kuching's weather. This is considered cold for me. I do miss winter in Australia, I still remember clearly how much I suffered when I just arrive there during winter time and that time was one of the coldest winter in more than 10 years. Hope that the plan for this year go smoothly and I will go back and enjoy winter in Australia again. :)

Aussie tale of love in the outback

G'day Mate. As this is my first entry for 2009, I would like share my review about the first movie I've watched in 2009. Not many movies can attract my attention, maybe that's why my fiance always tagged me as "Not a real movie person". This movie attracted me because of the title. I love Australia. Until today I still love that place very much. I feel so regret for coming back here, I should have stay back for another semester by postponing my exams. That was the biggest mistake that I ever made. Sigh, I just need to wait for the right time to come, to make some arrangement to go back there again.

Ok, now back to the movie. Lady Sarah Ashely ( Nicole Kidman), an uppercrust Brit who believes her husband's cheating on her. Sarah packs up dozens of bags and hightails it to Australia after her husband refuses to return home from tending to their business interests down under. She wants to find out who he's cheating with and to get him to sell of their land and go back to England. Her plan was changed when she found out that her husband was dead when she reaches Down Under.

She fell in love with the Drover ( Hugh Jackman) and Nullah( the little boy). Nullah was so cute. He is a child of the stolen generation, son of Neil Fletcher and Daisy.


I like the the way Nullah speaks, very adorable. Tears were rolling down from my cheeks when I watched the scene that Nullah was taken to the Mission Island.

Now I am looking forward to watch the 3D movie that is coming soon and also Chihuahua of Beveryl Hills. I am still waiting for Chihuahua of Beverly Hills. Seems like they won't be showed in the cinema.
