Policeman Shouted At Two Girls For Making A Report During Buka Puasa Time


I was just doing my regular rounds around my friends’ blogs and when I read about Jia Min’s friend’s snatch theft incident at Audree’s blog … I just had to put it out there for all to see!!

It was bad enough that Jia Min’s friend, Meow Fong, was dragged on the ground by the snatch thief for quite abit. LUCKILY SHE DIDN’T KNOCK SOME CURB OR SOME ONCOMING VEHICLE OR SOMETHING.

The only rational thing for them to do is for them to go to the police right? Correct.

So they did.

Do you know that the police asked them to go to ANOTHER police station(Brickfield’s) to make the report?! Then the POLICE at Brickfield’s station “screamed” at the two girls for coming at BUKA PUASA TIME. They asked them to wait for two more hours.

I don’t think they had to wait..but the cheek of them!!!

Then because Jia Min’s BM was quite fluent, one of the policemen called her in to his office to “interview her”. His “questions” were like, “Wah! Awak sangat cantiklah! Ada pak we kah?” and she was also asked to give him her bf’s name so that he can ‘check up on him’.


What the fuck right? WHAT. THE. FUCK.

Hello?? I thought these Ah Moi teasings only come from the lowest of our social strata(read: Indonesian/Bangla construction workers) but aren’t the POLICEMEN supposed to be our HEROES?! AREN’T THEY SUPPOSED TO PROTECT US AND NOT MAKE US FEEL UNCOMFORTABLE?!?!!?!

I’ve met some nice policemen during the times I’ve had to go make police reports(car accident, runaway maids, stolen handphones(they said that i should not bother reporting because it’s no big deal. This was back in 2000. A HANDPHONE WAS A BIG DEAL.), applying for permission to have big social gatherings etc.)…but this….THIS is too much. LOWEST OF THE LOW.

Aud hopes that someone will write to The Star. JIA MIN YOU SHOULD WRITE TO THE STAR. Bloggers are good propogators. So I’m just sharing this bit of disturbing news with my side of the blogosphere.

Mini Photoblog On Myself In Kedah

Just some random pics from Kedah!

For weeks we’ve been planning to check out the playground behind our house. Summoning the courage to put our books aside, we walked over to the massive green padang behind our terrace house-hostel.

l-r: Wuan Phing, Xiong Khee, Lie Yuen. (YES, LiE YUEN. My A-Levels classmate!!! I’m so happy that she finally came to AIMST for dentistry even though she came in one month late!)

l-r: Xiong Khee and Me. She’s always laughing at me because I like to come out in my towel from the bathroom, cannot wake up in the mornings etc. etc. 🙁

Camwhoring. Not too good. But you see the houses? They look just like USJ! .. Kedah is not all about rice after all. Honestly, I’ve not seen an actual padi field. Disappointed.

Perhaps this was supposed to be a padi field, judging from the size of it. This is the padang lor.

A rickety old slate path that has a few dislodged slates that will tip over if you’re stepping on the wrong side of it.

Lie Yuen playing sea-saw with me.

l-r: Xiong Khee and Wuan Phing.

Xiong Khee still eating her carrot.

Amazing how the sea-saw doesn’t tip much at my end, what with Lie Yuen being 1/3 of my weight.

Fatt hiau. Sorry ar.

On the swings…. didn’t take one of myself because Cze Yin’s camera died.

I brought my printer up to Kedah and printed coloured photographs from my computer and pasted them all over my study table. Some artistic ones added instead of the normal human beings one. You know all those mo-liu photos that I take of my food before I eat them? They make nice mini photos to jazz up the otherwise boring study table.

By the way, I’m learning CHINESE!! I can speak a little and recognise just abit of chinese characters! A good way would be to try to sms in chinese.

I needed to keep in contact with some of the people from NS and I was planning to cut off all connections with them because I don’t know HOW we’re gonna keep in touch through sms(phone calls are too expensive, especially when there is nothing much to say)… but fear not, for I am learning.

Below is a message from an Ah Heng from NS. Had to get Cze Yin to translate it for me. HAhaha.

I don’t know what he’s saying.

Hehehe, see!! I know just a little bit of chinese now. But I think it won’t be long before my housemates’ patience run out… it’s like I have to ask them how to spell every single world and if they’re far away I had to shout at them and ask things like, “IS the HaHa word the one with the box on the right and the roof with a line and a box underneath it?”

Then apparently I don’t know how write my name one wor….. so I was given some lessons on how to write my name. 🙁

Ode To Subang Jaya

Eight McDonalds within a three kilometer radius,
Students come from far, promising and ambitious.
Cars and motorbikes in a congested mess,
Four to seven in the evening, nothing less.
The monsoon drain that flows from nineteen to fourteen,
Rushes with the aftermath of the pouring rain.

Those who are dearest, only five minutes away,
24 hours in connection, so many things to say.
Fifteen’s smelly drains deter but yet the place attracts us so,
To play Dota in the cyber cafes, all the boys will go.
A food court of the grandest scale,
The DVD sellers never go to jail.

Our famous storms send modems back,
For the Streamyx people to thoroughly check.
The infamous field in eighteen,
Congregates gangsters of thirteen to seventeen.
Promises of more highways materializing soon,
One day the layers of highways will reach the moon.

To someone else, USJ resembles the Bermuda Triangle,
Where the residents, strangely, enjoy to mingle.
Suicidal thoughts invade the head on Fridays at 12pm,
If you¡¯re stuck near Subang Parade amidst the Muslim prayer’s jam.

Dogs run away, they don’t know the way home,
The most expensive mamak food is under a hideous dome.
Nights whiled away at Tanjung with petty chatter and cups of teh ais,
In the company of family and childhood friends, it is always nice.

– a very bored Jolene who misses home.

I’ll be back in a week’s time!!! For the entire week!!!

I’ve made a breakthrough discovery: notes made on lined paper causes one to hate studying. USE plain A4 paper! I love studying!! LOVE LOVE LOVE! WHOOHOO. ..

……….i want to come home, like NOW.

Adventures Of Jay The Squirrel: Don’t Use Others’ Nuts

Some of the more valuable nuts in the woods are used as currency.

Jay The Squirrel and the other rodents in the Rodent Conservation Programme have insufficient valuable nuts to maintain the lifestyle that they were used to back in their own trees in other parts of the woods. This is because they are away from their families and they need to know how to control their nuts and use them wisely. They are learning.

One of the little luxuries in their furry lives that they can afford would be the daily tea leaves that are sent to their trees which would inform them about the latest happenings in the woods. From the start, Vinnie The Hedgehog said that she would not need the daily tea leaves as she goes back to her own tree in another part of the woods every weekend and can get access to the weekend’s tea leaves and have no need to have a daily supply of it. So fine, the other rodents thought, if she doesn’t want to chip in, they can still manage. Then, Nini The Hedgehog pulled out because she did not want to use her valuable nuts unnecessarily. Jay The Squirrel was abit peeved but she was okay about it after awhile.

Then today, Kiki The Squirrel kicked Jay The Squirrel and spoke in  Squirrel-dialect, “She’s reading our daily tea leaves! Make her pay!” . Jay the Squirrel discreetly hinted to Vinnie The Hedgehog, “Eh, so you decided to join us for the daily tea leaves?” Then Vinnie The Hedgehog said, “Eh, no.. just swirling the leaves. Not really reading it.”

It is unfair because how can you “swirl the leaves” and not read it? It’s not fair that the other rodents fork out their own nuts to get a daily supply of tea leaves and from the start the rodents have made it clear that whoever who are sharing nuts would get to read the daily tea leaves.

It’s fine if Vinnie The Hedgehog asked permission if she can read but she should stand firm against her own words and not read the daily tea leaves if she has said from the start that she “doesn’t need it”. But she did not even ask the other rodents if she can read it.

Another night when Jay The Squirrel was dilligently reviewing her materials from the day’s activities on her crystal ball, Vinnie The Hedgehog prodded Jay The Squirrel for the umpteenth time and asked if she can borrow her multi-purpose tea leaves which contains the activities of the Rodent Convervation Programme in great detail. A little frazzled from being disturbed, Jay The Squirrel huffed, “Why can’t you buy your own multi-purpose tea leaves?”

Vinnie The Hedgehog replied unashamedly, “No need lah, you all got what.”

WAH LAU WEH! Jay the Squirrel was damn pissed and immediately spoke in Squirrel-dialect to the other squirrels before switching back to the Rodent Language and said calmly, “But don’t you need to refer to it when you go back to your tree in that other
part of the woods?”

Vinnie The Hedgehog mumbled something but was eventually lost for words.

Nini The Hedgehog once told the other squirrels that Vinnie The Hedgehog has her own multi-purpose tea leaves in her own hole somewhere high up in the big oak tree but was too lazy to scurry up to get it. Cunning, cunning.

On another note, Jay The Squirrel is unhappy with the quality of the leaves that she has been given to sleep on and it gives her pityful squirrely back a backache. Jay The Squirrel is constantly in pain and she hopes to be able to go to a nice hot spring to ease the tensed muscles in her back. However, it’s expensive for a nice session in a hot spring and she’s saving her nuts for one of those magic prisms that captures the most beautiful images which she can keep in her crystal ball.
