I had a very interesting encounter at AMK Hub a few weeks ago. I was on my way to the cinema at the 4th floor of the building and I choose to go up via the lift.
At the 1st floor lift lobby, a lift door opened and I promptly entered it to only realize that the lift was occupied and it was going DOWN. Within a space of a second, my STUPENDOUS mind decided that instead of walking out of the lift to wait for the next lift to go up, why not just stay in this lift till it goes up?
Right before the lift doors closed, a lao ah-ma (old grandmother, which hereby be known as LAM) entered the lift and mumbled a sentenced in Hokkien. Although my dialect is Hokkien, I have much trouble understanding it, much less speak it. Seeing that I am a gracious and considerate Singaporean, I decide to offer help.

Have you ever had those mysterious missed calls? Unfamiliar number that keeps calling your phone sometime right in the middle of the night? Well, I used to have such calls back then when I was using my 016 number. I tell you, those missed calls are irritating! Sometimes I don’t whether to call back or not. And when I do call back, the person on the other side of the phone will claim that he never call at all. Well, atleast that person sounded sincere to me…so I couldn’t be totally pissed with him/her. So what can I do..ignore it?

A week ago I posted an entry about a hokkien song that I’ve been looking high and low. Thanks to Terence Goh, I managed to get the song and converted it into mp3 format. The title of the hokkien song is “Ji Pa Ban“. Sing along if you want to…
Nah sih gua uh ji pa ban, ji pa ban, Gua uh ji pa ban, jit si lang tio khin san

The Yodelling Wanker tells us the various uses of the names for parts of the female anatomy:
Unlike the male counterparts who have more peripherals and hence more diverse expressions for it, the usage of Cheeb** as an expression is rather limited. Cheeb** is often used to described a situation of frustration and irritation.
