I was walking around the new Sunway Pyramid with my family and my cousin was just telling me about the name of this new unopened outlet in the new wing.
She said, “My mum, dad and I came out of the elevator and I saw a shop and went, “Mack-Hee-nez?”” and my dad was like, “Nolaaa…it’s Muh-shei-nez” and then my mum butt in and said, “No!.. It’s Mac-Hinds!”……and the three of us stood there for awhile before it dawned on us.”
Their minds were too sophisticated to pronounce Machines. Hahahahahahahahahahhahaa. They thought it was some new Italian brand…hahhahahahahahhahaha. I think the fonts must’ve been too spaced out for them to comprehend the word. My brother’s looking forward to the shop though. He wants a Macbook!

Stood there just figure out what is the correct pronunciation? Wow…
jo:hehehe funny none the less. yeaaaa.Ma Ke Bok! any idea where he can get a free one?
supposedly, there’s this kinda trick that you can pull on people. Get them to pronounce (as you spell out) MacDonalds, MacNuggets, and then throw in Machines. They’ll pronounce it as Mack – Hines. Seriously funny stuff and then you can point and call them idiots. =)
