What Are You Looking For?

It’s very common in Malaysia that whenever an accident happens, people will stop and look. It doesn’t matter how serious the accident is, people will stop and look. Dozens of people will stand by the roadside to watch. Even those driving or riding a motorbike will slow down to look. Among all those looking, only a handful will actually lend a hand to the victims. This will then lead to a jam.

When I was reading the papers today, I came across the picture below.

The caption clearly states that all motorists were “slowing down to have a closer look at the trailer“. Is it a Malaysia’s culture to be busybody when an accident happens? It’s like everyone’s looking for something. So…WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?

Dropped a coin ah?

Want to see got blood or not ah?

Trailer’s number plate ah? (to buy 4D)

“WAN HAI” ah? :twisted:

Man sues wife for NO SEX

(Wednesday, February 14, 2007)

I just finished reading an article online. Pretty darn ridiculous if you ask me. The whole story goes something like this:

A man and lady got to know each other through a matchmaker. After dating for 3 months, they finally planned to get married. But not without a contract. The contract states that the sole ‘purpose’ of the marriage was just for procreation (having babies). And that they’ll be sleeping separately after they’ve consummated (had sexual intercourse). However…

Quote:

On the wedding night, Lin slept fully dressed and wrapped with a quilt, the daily said, without citing any sources.

When Chen tried to sleep with her, the report said, she pushed him away shouting: “You are ridiculous!”

I mean like… WTF???

Why would anyone want to get married, have kids, but wouldn’t have sex, and definitely not sleep with the husband? Why not just go to a sperm bank?

They’ve been together for a year without consummating. The man got so fed up, asked for a divorce, and sued his ‘wife’. And guess what? He WON!

Hello world!

I’ll leave the post title as it is. I’ve used the same title for my first post in my virgin first blog. The passage below was taken from that blog.

Hello World!

If you’ve taken a programming lesson before in your life, you’ll notice that “Hello World!” is usually the first thing you’ll learn to print out on the screen. Therefore I feel it’s appropriate to start my first blog with the line, “Hello World!”.

I’ve taken the next step now by hosting my blog on my own web hosting and domain. I guess it’s time for me to hit the mainstream. At least I’m trying to. So now the big money will start to flow in. I’ll have hundreds thousands of readers. I’ll probably even be FAMOUS. More people will recognize me on the streets. People on the streets will take photographs with me. Reporters will ask me for interviews. TV hosts will invite me to their shows.

ZZAAAAPPPPPPPPPPP!!!!!!

Alright, I’m back to earth now.
