Not to say we are disrespectful to our ancestors, but Cheng Beng (we speak Hokkien lar, so not 'Cheng Meng' lar, ok) every year is like quite a fun family outing for us. Most relatives would be back in Taiping, sometimes more than those who went back for CNY. We would all joke around at the graveyard, making fun of every single thing, especially those funny paper stuff that we always burn for our Ah Gong (grandfather).
For example, two years ago, my 4e actually ate siu yok(roasted pork) at the graveyard, and my Ah Gong also got siu yok there, so she actually asked Ducum to help take a picture of her with my 'Ah Gong', which means she was eating siu yok with my Ah Gong. Unfortunately, Ducum still keep the picture...My 4e was sharing her Siu Yok moment with Ah Gong...
Well, this year's Cheng Beng was my first one after I-don't-know how many years since I went to Perth. So I was quite excited about it until I almost forgot where my Ah Gong's graveyard is. Ducum took some nice photos and I'm going to make this a blog with many many photos in stead of words...
We first visited our Ah Gong (father's side) in this Cantonese graveyard place(nop, I'm not Cantonese, I'm Teochew). It was still very early in the morning, very beautiful morning, very beautiful weather...Give you a challenge, find where am I in this picture!!!
Ah Siew's facial expression is enough for me to put this photo here!
My pa doing his thing...
See that crazy girl standing with that kinda pose? Forget about the pose, what about her jacket? I bought it, okay! I BOUGHT IT!Leng Chai~ Whee~Whee~Whee~*whistle non-stop*
I swear with my sanitary pad, they are not the same person! I swear!
My Ah Ma... She actually scolded Ducum for taking this picture because she wasn't ready! Cute, isn't she? Hahaha...
From left, my cousin bro Ah Quan, Ah Kia (yes, just like Ah Ka) and my other uncle.
Josticks... Don't know what to type as caption also... ==See, Ah Siew also wanted to take a picture with Ah Gong!
Things for my Ah Gong... Talk about recession man, it doesn't affect my Ah Gong(s).
I told ya, economic crisis only happens on earth!
So you think we look-alike? Now I let you compare lar! Oh... The next thing I'm going to do is to get a pair of glasses like that!The other three kids besides us... Ah Siew, Ah Quan and Ah Kia.
I love this picture... Because it' s soooo freaking funny! My Ah Ma probably had some flies in her stomach now... Kakakaka...
Pa and Mi... Still very loving and cute in their 50s... Ooooppsss...
Nice one before leaving for the 'next round'!
Ohya, on the way out, I met Andrew, the cute guy(means cute, cute, not handsome cute) I used to like in school and it was bloody funny the way I actually yelled his name and waved in the car and his mother saw me first before he did!
And then when the weather turned really HOT, it was time to visit my other Ah Gong (mum's side). Well, when we arrived nobody was there yet, so we actually started to sing some oldies for our Ah Gong. Ducum and I were really close to our Ah Gong before he suddenly left us when I was 12. He used to come home and sat on his lazy chair and asked me to play his oldies CDs with his hi-fi player... So we started singing lor... 路边的野花~你不要采~噔~噔~噔~噔~噔~噔~!And then 千王之王、万水千山总是情、偷偷摸摸、月亮代表我的心、何日君再来、情人的眼泪...... I think Ah Gong was hoping other people would come faster because he really beh tahan our singing liao! Muuuuuurrrrr... Ah Gong doesn't want us liao... Hahahaha...Ducum thinks she is sun bathing next to Ah Gong...
What do you learn from this picture? Answer: Ducum loves the sun, Shirlexia hates the sun...
Still don't wanna come? We are bored!!!
Still don't wanna come is it? Moi Choy Nei~!
I don't understand, Ducum said this picture looks very nice!
Aaaahhh... My other cute Ah Ma! :)
Some other relatives came to pay their respect...
I also don't know how to describe my 4e and Mike, newly-wed or to-be-wed? Huh?See that cigarette on your left? My Ah Gong is smoking ler!
My Ah Gong got a 'Mar-see-lee' with a driver this year! Cool ler???
My Ah Gong's grave has got English words, okay? Don't play play!
A full-shot of my Ah Gong's grave before leaving.
Talking about the English words on my Ah Gong's grave... There was this some kinda water or acid which damaged the gold-coloured words a little bit. So all the 'T's are faded. And so now the whole family's surname became 'Eh' in stead of 'Teh'. Ducum and I started to make fun of that calling my aunties and uncle, plus my mum... 'Eh' Yew Beng, 'Eh' Chai Wah, 'Eh' Chai Leng, 'Eh' Chai Peng... Kakakakaka... The thing is, they say the acid thingy is supposed to be something good, so we're not supposed to fix the words anymore. So it seems like they have to be called 'Eh' for their rest of their life! LOL!
So yea, Ducum said it was too hot she had to stop taking too many pictures...
Taiping was all packed on that particular Sunday not only because everyone went back for Cheng Beng, but also because of the bloody hell tri-election at Bukit Gantang. I think loads of people from all over west Malaysia swam into Taiping that day. Road blocks everywhere, police everywhere, I read KK had to actually walked to the graveyard from his house... ==Those people ah, can be so semangat in things like that one lor! It was just the nomination day, god damn it!!!
From what we saw, PAS won the day. But KK got some BN supporters pictures also, so I really don't know!
Anywayz, here are some captionless pictures...Before you know, they've made such a big mess! KK said there were lots of rubbish outside his house after the whole fuss. And guess what? It took us bloody 5 hours plus to reach KL that day! We met so many PAS drivers on the highway!
Bloody 5 HOURS PLUS man!!!

Do you miss HIM???

It's been a long long time since the last time I say anything about him. I know for sure some of my readers actually enjoy reading my blog because of him. In fact, some only visit my blog to read about him. I know many of you are actually missing him. I missed posting blog post about him too. BUT I DO NOT FUCKING MISS HIM AT ALL!!!
You know who I'm talking about...
Who else if it's not THE GREAT DANIEL TANG CHENG KET???
OMG, I found I just almost typed THE 'LATE' DANIEL TANG CHENG KET!
No idea who he is, yet? Click here to have an introduction before continue reading this post.
Sometimes he would be pretty good and fast in response to our complain, so sometimes I feel bad too to bitch about him in my blog. But sometimes he's just fucking worth it for me to bitch about. I was so pissed off just now reading his SMS that I can't help bitching about him and his crap here!!! The issue this time sounds like this...
For more than a year staying in the house, we've tied up some strings outside the house to hang our clothes. For more than a year, no problem at all. And then I think last month we suddenly saw this clothes hanger outside and the strings were all gone! So we were like, okay, Daniel Tang finally bought us the hanger. But why he had to cut off the strings ler? And after one month, we all found it very inconvenient without the strings. Reason being, there are more than 10 people staying in the house!!! One hanger is probably only enough for one person's laundry! So we need the strings lar. Ducum and I Rene put on new strings last week just to find Daniel Tang cut it off again two days later!
So today I SMS-ed Daniel Tang to ask what is the reason he had to cut off the string. Well, I just skipped washing my clothes for one week because I was in Taiping over the weekend, obviously my laundry is all piled-up and I need to wash them so badly!

My one-week-full of laundry! Still cannot wash ler!
And this is Daniel Tang's reply...I was so FUCKING PISSED OFF reading that!!!
First thing first, our house is just a normal house, not some kinda five-star high-class hotel, everybody hang clothes on strings here! I don't see what's the fucking problem here! Refugee camp? So yea, we are refugees, very unhappy refugees staying in a 'country' own by Daniel Tang, an ugly, fat, unfashionable, stupid, brainless, stingy leader! Shit I was like so on fire I actually started sweating in the office with air-con on!
And did you see what was the first word he typed? 'Ken'.
He thought I'm Ken! Ha! *Fire burning hot here!*Wait, or is it these Ericca's undies that made it looks like refugees camp???
So I replied him saying... There were no such rules in the house that we cannot hang the clothes on a string. And he had never told us about that. And that it is wrong that he didn't inform us before cutting off the strings (twice). I also told him we had to buy the strings (money) and tied it up (energy), he can't just cut-off and took the string away just like that. Okay, I admit, I put 'you need improvement in doing business, dude' in the end of the SMS. Honestly, one hanger for more than 10 people in the house is NOT ENOUGH! Every human being who has brain knows that. Only for Daniel Tang Cheng Ket. Well, maybe he is not human being, he is a bloody vampire, bloody fat and ugly vampire!!! And obviously doesn't have any piece of brain in his big head!
Well, his next SMS made me actually shouted 'WTF' at the gym...GO FUCK YOURSELF DANIEL! SURVEY MY FEET LAR!
I'll give you the fucking proof you want here!!!As I came home, the hanger is full of clothes, some even stacked! They actually stink, okay? As I walked into the house I see more clothes on the sofa, stinking like hell too!
Yes, together, we say it... EUWWWW~~~!!!
So, obviously, I can't do my laundry tonight! I've said this several times, but I just have to say it again. FUCK YOU DANIEL TANG CHENG KET!!!
Of course, I'm also worry if he agrees to buy us another hanger, it would most probably come after a long long while. Why? Simply because he is the FFK Wong (FFK King)!
There are simply too many things that he had promised but never did. Just too many for me to remember or to count. I can now only think of the second router he had promised to buy a year ago and is not here yet. And we are still using the shitty internet connection. I'm already now using my personal broadband thingy to post this... Memang tak boleh harap punya bastard!!!

One thing I can understand him not being able to keep his promise is that he has so many houses to take care of, and he has other part-time jobs, plus, he loves to go back to his hometown.


Mou Kam Dai Go Tau, Mou Dai Kam Dai Chek Mou’! If you couldn’t handle so many things, then don’t do so many things! I don’t know if it kills you or not, it certainly kills us, your ‘dearest’ tenants.

The other one thing that irritates me was of course when he randomly let 4 constructions workers stayed in our house for more than a week. Okay, I admit I might have some discrimination/racist on these weird looking people, but god damn it, this is supposed to be a safe student hostel! How can you simply put some dangerous looking people in our house???

Everyone was shocked when we saw them all topless in the house, especially the very dark Indian fellar. There was also two other Malays and one Chinese uncle I think. They made the whole house stinked like hell. Also, they smoked in their room! I bloody can’t stand that!!!

Thank god they are gone now. Phew~!

But to all of you out there who want to rent a room in Sunway area, do you want all these shit in your house? Think about it, it is just wise to boycott Daniel’s business. To make sure you aware of Daniel Tang Cheng Ket and his shitty work renting out houses and cheating students around the area, I'm now typing all the words for you to find my blog when making a Google search on renting houses or rooms...

Daniel Tang Cheng Ket, Squarefeet Service Hostel, Bandar Sunway, PJS.

You know you should not rent from him once you see or hear his name!!!

Note: FFK=Fong Fei Kei, a Cantonese phrase for people who don’t keep their promise.

Breakfast @ Petaling Street

Yesterday Ducum and I had to wake up early in the morning (oh, basically only me lar, she didn't sleep the whole night) to try our luck with the bus ticket at Puduraya. Well, it turned out we had to wait for another 4 hours plus for our bus to come... Sigh...
So we went for breakfast at one of the stalls at Petaling Street, or to be more accurate, Chinatown. Okay, the stall has no name. It's located opposite the two very famous Yok Gon (Chinese bacon) shops, and it's at the same row as the famous wanton noodles, porridge and claypot lou su fun. Still don't know? Search for this stall lar...The little stall selling some really good food...
I've been there once myself, but I was alone, cannot order too much. But this time around, with Ducum here, we ordered quite a lot for breakfast... Ta da... Hungry, yet???
I had the peanut porridge, which was smooth, smells bloody good, and of course, super duper yummy! Ducum had the economic noodles with curry gravy and fried egg. She loves the curry gravy A LOT!!! The best thing is, the stall actually sells all kind of fried noodles and also fried rice! Ducum had the mihoon and lao su fun. I also got some yong tau fu with curry gravy, which was also fantastic. I especially like the pork ball. It's really soft, unlike those common ones which always stuck to your teeth when biting it.Definitely how Shirlexia looks like after sleeping for only 5 hours!
Okay, one normal one...
And then, it's Ducum with the whole lot of food!Uuuummmmm... Yum yum yum~!
The tea and coffee were from the Cha Wong (Tea King) at the opposite site of the stall. And Ducum also said the milk tea was very GOOD!
Well, perhaps you don't always wake up so early and head to KL for your breakfast, but IF you happen to stop by Petaling Street in the morning, this is just the perfect place to have some traditional Chinese breakfast at a reasonable price! :)

Just did our Cheng Beng thingy this morning. I'm now hours away from returning to KL. The one thing I would really want to do for next week is to watch Talentime!!!

Manglish Lesson...

Right, I think some of you may notice, my English is not perfect. I'm not perfect in grammar and I'm very very very (trust me, there are many times of 'very very') bad in spelling. I think the spell check thingy in Words is like the best thing in the whole world! :p
But well, I think I'm not as dumb as those people who did some stupid mistakes some Malaysians made...
A shop located at the Bukit Bintang monorail station..."ALL ITEM START RM10"
It sounds like the item is having a race with something and the starting point is RM10! What the...
I don't really know how to explain what's wrong with it, but I know it should be "ALL ITEMS FROM RM10". I might be wrong, tell me if I'm wrong.
And isn't it suppose to be 'items' in stead of 'item'?

At TGV Sunway Pyramid, I've got two pictures of their notices with English mistakes..."DEAR PATRONS, MOVIE PAINTED SKIN WILL BE START ON FRIDAY..."
Will be start??? WTF??? I think its probably because they just did a direct translate from our lovely Bahasa Melayu. Like urm, 'akan bermula'='will be start'. I think it should be 'will start playing', 'will start' or in my cin cai English term, 'will be on'! Haha...
Now this one, I reckon there are mistakes all over!!!
The first thing I noticed and actually laughed was the 'return back'. I'm pretty sure its also translated from Bahasa Melayu, because it has to be 'pulangkan balik'. It should be return, the 'back' has repeated the meaning. I think you don't need the 'door' for the 'exit door' as well. 'Incase the 3D glasses missing or damage, customer are responsible for it' also sounds really wrong. I cannot really think of a proper way, but I would put it this way... 'Customers are responsible for any damage or loss caused'.
TGV needs to take care of these problem seriously because I'm pretty sure some foreigners would be making fun of us because of these somewhat funny notices...

Malaysians also sometimes love mixing their languages. You may find it rather cute sometimes...
Here's a picture I took at one of the stalls at the International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta 2009 last weekend..."COCONUT SHAKE, MANNGA JUICE, ICE BLEND, OREN JUS, EPAL JUS, CARROT SUSU..."
The whole banner is a mix-up of both Bahasa Melayu and English! I'm sure you understand what it says, but... It's still not really good for your kids to learn language like that ok?

Next one was a mistake I made myself for a long long time... Until one day Uncle Yip replied my e-mail with this very interesting English lesson and example...
Yo swthrt, gotcha and BTW... stuff has got no plural form if used as a noun because it is a collective noun, it takes an "s" only if used as a verb such as in the following: Shirlexia Tan is such a fatty because she stuffs her face everyday. : )
TQ very much for the free english lesson today courtesy fooopy.
Well, Uncle Yip definitely enjoy teasing me about me being fat... ==|||
I'm lucky to have know that and stop adding 's' to the word 'stuff' since then. But my housemate definitely needs the free english lesson from Uncle Yip too!"CLARE'S STUFFS"
I will tell her... Clare, my ex-colleauge, Uncle Yip told me, Clare is such a fatty because she stuffs her face everyday!
Truth is, she is bloody skinny lor...:p

Ok guys, thats all for now! See you next time! :)
