What’s the sharpest thing in the world?
It’s word coming out your mouth. It could taint and break friendship or family ties ❗
It’s in the National Principle, COURTESY AND MORALITY (Kesopanan dan Kesusilaan). I don’t wish to elaborate more, but I’ll give you some examples. I guess its fair if I compare it with other developed countries.
At The Airport
NoktahHitam: Here you go. I’m not a wanted person am I?
*PassportCounter glares* I’m sure its boring sitting at the booth the entire day. A joke or two could spring her back.. right? 😉
PassportCounter: Would you be kind enough to hand me your passport, please.
NoktahHitam: Here you go. I owe the bank £100,000 don’t I?
PassportCounter: Funny, as I recall, there was another zero..
*NoktahHitam glares, then laughs* The joke is on me 🙄
At a Restaurant or Cheap Cafe
Waiter: Minum? (drink?)
NoktahHitam: Nescafe Ais (Iced Coffee)
Waiter: Makan? (eat?)
NoktahHitam: No thanks
*Waiter glares* he probably think I’m a cheapskate 😈
Waiter: Are you ready to order sir?
NoktahHitam: Yes I am.
Waiter: Ok, what would you like to have? We have our house specialty today, would you like to try?
NoktahHitam: Nope I’m fine, just fetch me a sparkling water.
Waiter: Super. I’ll have that brought over in no time.
*NoktahHitam glares* In No Time means now… talk about precision.
The Bus Stop, Asking Stranger for Directions
NoktahHitam: Excuse me, which bus takes me to Setiawanga?
Stranger A: 237A
*Stranger A glares* as if I’m trying to hit on her 😯
NoktahHitam: Pardon me, I need to know which bus takes me to Daimaru?
Stranger F: It’s alright. You need to take that bus. It’ll probably take about 15-20 minutes. Do you have enough change?
NoktahHitam: Yes I do. Thank you.
Stranger F: Here on holiday?
NoktahHitam: Both, business and surfing.
*NoktahHitam glares* is she trying to hit on me? :XO:
The Lost and Found
NoktahHitam: Pardon my intrusion, did you see any camera lying around here?
Stranger L: No.
*Stranger L stares* he probably thought, if “I found that camera, I would have sold it” :kiss:
NoktahHitam: Spreken ze English?
GermanChick: Ja. May I know what seems to be the trouble?
NoktahHitam: I lost my camera somewhere around this area.
GermanChick: You should head over to that police booth. Usually people return found items there.
NoktahHitam: Danke schoen
*NoktahHitam smiles* she isn’t the prettiest around but sure is helpful 😛
The Shop I Worked At
Boss A: Angkat ni letak belakang, pastu print draft smlm (Send this to the back and print me yesterdays draft)
NoktahHitam: Sure thing.
*Boss A stares* He thinks I couldn’t handle such easy task 😐
Boss M: Morning love. How was your weekend?
NoktahHitam: I slept the entire day.
Boss M: Great! Now that you’re energized, I need you to send this to the back. It’d be lovely if you could also bring me yesterday’s sales report after that
NoktahHitam: Sure thing Mr M.
Boss M: Oh please, just call me T.
*NoktahHitam speechless* I thought there’s a great wall between boss-staff, no? ❗
And here we are, calling ourselves Peramah, Bersopan, Bersusila. It’s time to re-think the “Malaysia Boleh” enigma. It doesn’t hurt to be kind and polite. I would love to hear what you have to say. So please comment ❗
Also Youtube for the above header 😛
