The World's Smallest Toilet

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Land is scarce in Hong Kong. In fact, land is so scarce that there doesn't seem to be enough room for anything.

Like this windows display. Every single inch of the window is utilised to the fullest. Ironically, this is a real estate agent's office. This is almost like when you've just taken a dump & you realise that you're running out of toilet paper. And you've got no choice but to use every corner of it.

See what I mean? There's tons of ads all fighting for that one little space. These ads are just screaming for attention. In Malaysia, you could just write an ad with a pencil on A4 paper 'House for Sale' & you'd still get people calling you. In Hong Kong, if your ad is not in colour, then it's just wasting space.

But this is the ultimate of what I wanted to say.

When I saw this at a restaurant, I was contemplating whether I could actually get in. And if I succeeded, would there be room enough for me to maneouver to find my zipper, etc. This has got to be the WORLD'S SMALLEST TOILET!!!!!

The ang mo tourists would really have to hold. It's quite a physical challenge.

Hong Kong: The City of Order

I still haven't gotten over how orderly the Hong Kong of today has become. From the horror stories I've heard from people who've been there, I've always had the impression of it as a very dirty, rude & noisy place, much like a very big fish market the size of a city. A place where you get yelled for nothing.

Well, I found that it has changed so much. It wasn't dirty. The people were super polite, including the street hawkers. But one thing that remained the same was the level of noise.

One of the first thing that you'd notice is that like in Japan, wherever you go, there's always an information guy standing right in the middle of everything.

And don't play play, this uncle can spiak the England.

Politeness was really the last thing I'd expected in Hong Kong. But politeness was right in the face everywhere. Even the road works were polite. The guy on the signboard even bows to you. How more polite can you get than that?

And the signboard had all the necessary info including contact number, start & completion dates. In Malaysia, roadwork signs only have four words - SLOW MEN AT WORK.

In fact, even the roads were polite.

Tankyu to you very the muchy.

Hai! Arigato gozaimasu!

The people were also very polite. They even line up for bus rides.

When you're in the line, you can be rest assured that you won't be potong-ed.

What the heck. Even the motorbikes on the streets were polite.

Good boys. Kuai Kuai cover up. Form a straight line & hold hands.

Ah Lien Go Erection

Hello Eberybody! It's Ah Lien again! I feel very the happy & excitings because Ah Beng ask me to write his blog again. It's been a while since I last wrote anything, because he got no money to pay me. My Engrish also has improved a lot eversince as you can see.

I am also feering the exciting because our beloved Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi has finally announced his erection. The time has come for us to think carefully about who to vote. I also have to think carefully & see which candidate is more handsome & beautiful. It's very important to be represented by people who look fashionable, like in the last State erection.

Imagine them walking in style into the DUN in slow motion with wind blowing like MTV. Waisay, everyone of the BN jaw drop. Fashion got power. You can be beautiful & powderful at the same time.

My degree studies to become successful & beautiful businesswoman has made me think a lot about our future in the Malaysia, our beloved country. I think a lot of things nowadays. I think that the politic parties should change their approach & image because nowsadays peoples are different already.

For ekjampel, BN should change their logo to reflect what they truly are today like this:

Also, not forgetting DAP which must also change it's image to more technologically advanced one to reflect change:
This is important especially after they sent the first Malaysian astronaut to the space.

I also got this poster in my room. Teeheehee.

Throughout last year also I have learnt that they have trained a lot more new & handsome astronauts. I met one in Kuching. He got the rocket logo on his shirt.

When Badawi's erection come, I will know who to erect.

Tsk Tsk Tsk Badawi

Chk Chk Chk Chk (Malaysian version of Tsk Tsk) Mr. Badawi.

On Tuesday Badawi said Parliament will not be dissolved tomorrow:
"The Cabinet meeting will go on, go on and go on. You are the smart aleck, you all enjoy circulating the rumours" (BERNAMA)

And then on Wednesday, Badawi suddenly (hoot lien kang) announced the dissolution of Parliament. (read BERNAMA)

I find this really mind-boggling. It's like the teacher telling you that there's no test tomorrow. And when you get to school the next day there, she gives you one.

What this does to us is that it makes us even more prudent when we listen to the PM talking.

"God knows I am clean and I am still nice today. Being nice should be your character and you don't have to change." Abdullah Badawi (NST)
Uhhh... yeah.

Khairy Never Get Govt Projects, Says Abdullah (Bernama)
Uhhh... yeah.

Abdullah Denies Buying RM30 Million Boat (BERNAMA)
Uhhh... yeah.

Well, at least he didn't say that it sounded like him & looked like him.
