I notice that lately I've been talking too much about relationships. Not good. Macam kucing gatal.
You know what, I've never ever heard of Manek Urai before.
"Hai, you dekat mana?"
"On the way nak pergi Man U."
"Manek Urai lah!"
Wah, sekarang ada nama glamour.
And I heard the people of Manek Urai are enjoying all the attention. Business are going well. "Kalau macam ni, tiap-tiap tahun mengundi pun tak apa!" a makcik commented. Haha. Makcik comel.
Children are the best free entertainment. My niece really wanted to follow the rest of the family to Europe. "Tak boleh, awak mana ada passport, tak boleh naik kapal terbang!"
Like any other persistent child, she folded a few plain papers and wrote, 'PASSPORT MALAYSIA', complete with her biodata and a drawn photo of herself on the first page.
So cute lah!
My niece also couldn't differentiate between dagu, dahi and siku.
Niece: Kita confuse lah. Dagu yang ini kan? (Points to her chin)
Niece: Dahi yang ini kan? (Points to her forehead)
Niece: Siku yang ini kan? (Points to her elbow)
Me: Awak dah 10 tahun, tapi you still can't identify your body parts?
Niece: Siku and dagu, sebab dua-dua bunyi 'u', dagu and dahi sebab dua-dua bunyi 'da'! Tahu tak kita confuse apa lagi? Kiri and kanan...
Me: Kiri tu 'left', kanan tu 'right'.
Niece: I know which one is left and which is right, but I'm confused which one is kiri and which one is kanan.
Eh, macam tu pulak? English tak confuse, Bahasa Melayu confuse pulak?
According to my boyfriend, sorry if this is wrong, in the Quran, it is stated something like: to make money you have to sweat. Kena berusaha cari rezeki, kejayaan tidak akan datang bergolek, success is 99% perspiration, 1% inspiration, ah, you know the drill.
He elaborated that if you got the money but you didn't do much work, there must be something wrong there. Easy come, easy go lah...
And then, there is this story about this conwoman, who ran away with RM400millions. The people she manipulated including celebrities and prominent people, of course, not mentioned in the paper, such a shame how someone educated can fall into this woman's trap.
Her activities were exposed several months back when a friend approached my boyfriend and asked him whether this woman had tried to coax my boyfriend to invest money in her 'business'. Thank God, no. The friend then told my boyfriend how this woman had conned many people including politicians and so and so who are the CEOs of companies so and so, and my boyfriend listened. Biasalah, gosip, kena dengar dengan setia.
Suddenly, in yesterday's Harian Metro, the woman was mentioned, front page lagi.
Pengajarannya di sini, nak duit, kena kerja kuat. Tak boleh goyang kaki harap duit masuk. Kalau dapat duit cara senang, confirm tak lama duit tu akan ada dalam tangan, mesti lesap semula.
These conmen are very clever. They will give you evidence: first time you invest, they will give you a huge return. You will be lured, especially since other prominent people join the club too. Next time, you'll be investing more, sebab you greedy macam anjing dengan bayang-bayang, orang tamak selalu rugi.
Looking on the bright side, it's just money. Bukan boleh bawa mati pun. Duit, mana-mana pun boleh cari. So, don't be too sad lah if you lost some money...
