Women and Words

This is some of the words that women use in the daily conversation and together we observe what they really means..

- This is the word women use to end an argument when they are right and you need to shut up.

"FIVE MINUTES" - If she is getting dressed, this is half an hour. Five minutes is only five minutes if you have just been given 5 more minutes to watch the game before helping around the house.

"NOTHING" - This is the calm before the storm. This means "something," and you should be on your toes. Arguments that begin with 'Nothing' usually end in "Fine".

"GO AHEAD" - This is a dare, not permission. Don't do it.

"LOUD SIGH" - This is not actually a word, but is a non-verbal statement often misunderstood by men. A "Loud Sigh" means she thinks you are an idiot and wonders why she is wasting her time standing here and arguing with you over "Nothing".

"THAT'S OKAY" - This is one of the most dangerous statements that a woman can make to a man. "That's Okay" means that she wants to think long and hard before deciding how and when you will pay for your mistake.

"THANKS" - A woman is thanking you. Do not question it or faint. Just say you're welcome. No more arguments.

Roti Canai oh Roti Canai

I'm sure that each & everyone of us has experienced eating at kedai mamak. I mean there are everywhere. Well, i want to share my experience on this kedai mamak situation. It's not about the food or condition. But, a simple experience that i will remember till the end.

It all begins in 2002, i was in part of the Sukan Remaja JIM when i had to depart for bus. It was 12 midnight when the bus started to get moving from bus station. What a journey that was. I can't sleep for the whole journey. Damn..

5am, i arrived at the so-called Puduraya bus station. Then gotta wait for the "urusetia" to fetch the whole team. Weird isn't it? We have to stop at Puduraya & wait for them to fetch us..Why we just can't go straight to Bangi(the venue of the event) & stop there. But that's not important. After meeting with the "urusetia", they brought us to have our breakfast at Anuja Restaurant just opposite the Puduraya station. And this is where the funny thing happens. As i was having the ordinary roti canai & teh tarik, suddenly i heard one of the urusetia said "roti canai kat sini boleh tahan sedapnye..". That's very irony to me as i'm having difficulties to finish mine (tak sedaplah tu). And out of the blue, the urusetia face me and ask me in the most manner way..."Kat Penang ade kedai roti canai best camni tak?". OMG, i can saw my friends all are holding their laughter. I can't simply laugh at him. But in the most manner way i answered..."Eh,ada banyak kedai roti canai kat Penang. Macam cendawan tumbuh,selang 500meter ada sebuah..". Fair enough i guess. He nodded his head.

In our way to Bangi, me & all the team simply cannot "tahan" to laugh. We laugh all the way from KL to Bangi. What a day that was as i ponder to myself.."Ada jugak orang tak penah pi Penang". Well, that's experience i would say. Roti canai oh roti canai..

Land Ahoy...Welcome!
