Road Rage: Keep It Down, Pretty Please

I have a terrible sense of direction... :-(

I never did understand how some people can get themselves so heated up when they drive on the road. Like KL taxi drivers. Oooh, they are scareee when they're in a bad mood. My sister, Sara, is hilarious on the road! She swears to high heavens at people in the car, probably learned this in KL or can be traced to her dysfunctional childhood. Even random people walking by are not spared!

Sara driving with me sitting shotgun. Girls walk by.
Me: 0_0 (but it's not like they can hear anyway)

However, I do feel uneasy when people get angry at other drivers and show it in their driving such as sudden acceleration of the vehicle or these superhuman turns at corners (oh wait, that's me). It makes your passengers sit at the very edge of their seat, holding their breath till the engine is finally turned off and everyone can finally breathe normally again.

Scary Sara doing her thing while I'm at the wheel... XD

So you can imagine my horror when Sara flips the middle finger at some guy who ran the red light and got in the way while I was U-turning. =_= He was definitely in the wrong but the line of rempits (motorcyclists) waiting patiently behind him looked appalled. And his car was full of kids. KIDS. OMGWTFBANANAS.

I do hope Terengganu motorists won't start flippin' the middle finger at me too. Makes for some really unpleasant driving. Running the red lights are so common in Kuala Terengganu, it's expected (so you have to watch it at traffic lights). Then there are the motorcyclists who think their heads are invincible or look suspiciously underaged. Just remember that Malaysian saying,

"Pandulah dengan cermat, ingat orang tersayang." ;-P

Or watch this for good measure!

There's a movie for every occasion! XD

Funniest Malaysian Names!

I laughed out loud for 10 straight minutes reading this old post at Mr. Badak's website! If you must know, I was searching for the meaning of mulau (crazy in Kadazan) because I wasn't quite sure of the meaning (I'm a poor excuse for a Kadazan), and I stumbled across this. It's not even the post itself (about an unfortunate man named Mulau bin Burit) that was the absolute funniest, it was the commenters! Teachers and government workers come across the funniest names...

Imagine being named...
Alias bin Mati
Injin A/L Bot (changed his name already...)
Penus (Oh dear.)
Labiah binti Kondong
Ignor Ingor
Blueberi anak Dewberi (This made me laugh the hardest!)

Lee Je Hoon to Belt Some Notes for Paparotti!

How cute is this piece of news? Everybody's favorite actor gone for military service, Lee Je Hoon, is acting as a gangster who wants to sing! Jang Ho (Lee Je Hoon) has a talented voice, but because of his poor family background, he became a gang member. Nevertheless, Jang Ho still likes to sing and desperately wants to become a singer. He enlists the help of Sang Jin (Han Suk Kyu) who used to be a well regarded performer in Italy, but is now a music teacher at a local high school in a small city. He's not the most passionate of teachers. Kang So Ra plays Sook Hee, a classmate who has a crush on Jang Ho. 
This movie is based on the true story of Kim Ho Joong, who first appeared on Korean TV Show, Star King, on July 18, 2009. During the program, Kim Ho Joong surprised people with his vocal abilities and also made people cry because of his back ground story. He grew up as a troubled kid who joined gangs, but because of his grandmother he began to sing in earnest. Stills and the …

Gawky Poses People Do Best Forgotten

Ever seen a pose that you thought looked terrible even though the person doing it is a mega hot fiiiiiine piece of...well, you get my drift. I'm sure if I asked a guy, they would have plenty of other suggestions but here are just three that occurred to me while typing out this post.

1. The Angry Chicken Pose

E.g. Sohee from the Wonder Girls (middle girl) - BTW their new album WONDER WORLD is out! Check it out! :)

I have never seen anyone pull this off and still look attractive. (Also known as The Stomach Ache or Pelvic Thrust)

2. Woman Draped on a Car Pose

No offense to auto babe ladies everywhere, but I can never find this not tacky. It must be difficult to twist yourself in a sultry pose on a heap of metal (something I, a mere mortal, can never hope to achieve) and I'm glad that at least you're being paid for it.

3. Cutesy Asian Poses

There's a whole multitude of these but I'm pretty sure you're familiar with the like. E.g. Peace Sign (I'm totally guilty of this…
