40 Dalil Lelaki tidak layak di gelar "suami"...

Terjumpa dalam email lama... tergerak pulak nak letak kat ini... bacalah kalau masih belum baca! ;)

Bagi saya perkahwinan sebenarnya lebih menguntungkan lelaki kerana mereka dapat buktikan kejantanan kepada kawan2 apabila isteri hamil, dapat pengurus tetap menjaga kain baju mereka, dapat tukang masak percuma, dapat joli lebih sebab isteri juga bekerja dan bantu sara keluarga serta dapat seks halal. Isteri dapat apa? Tugas bertambah dan silap haribulan berendam airmata...

40 Dalil Lelaki tidak layak di gelar "suami"...

1. Sepanjang pertunangan, dia tidak pernah ajak berbincang cara nak bentuk keluarga solehah. Tetapi, asyik fikir mana nak bulan madu. Nak buat teknik macam2. Saya putuskan pertunangan kerana merasakan dia tidak boleh bimbing saya soal agama.

2. Malam pertama saya berendam airmata kerana suami melarikan diri selepas akad nikah. Dia bergaduh dengan ibubapa saya kerana soal wang hantaran dan mas kahwin. Malam itu, dia keluar kononnya nak pergi beli rokok, tetapi sampai subuh tak pulang. Kami bercerai 3 bulan kemudian.

3. Selepas 3 bulan nikah baru saya berpeluang ikut suami yang bertugas di Sabah. Saya hairan tengok rumahnya nampak kemas dan berhias cantik. Apabila saya gelidah satu almari di bilik tetamu, penuh baju perempuan. Puas ditanya baru dia mengaku selama ini dia duduk serumah dengan kekasihnya. Saya lari balik Semenanjung. Dia tidak pujuk. Lepas pantang saya terima surat cerai. Dia tidak pernah tahu macam mana rupa anaknya.

4. Beli cincin pertunangan duit saya, belanja hantaran pun duit saya.Sekarang duit ansuran rumah, kereta, susu anak, belanja dapur semua di bahu saya. Dia cuma beri "benih" sahaja.

5. Suami mahu anak ramai dan tidak benarkan saya makan pil. Tetapi, belum pernah sekali pun dia mahu bangun malam buat susu anak/tukar lampin. Kalau alasan penat di pejabat, saya pun bekerja juga.

6. Bapa tak pernah mengajar saya sembahyang dan puasa. Suami pun sama juga. Terpulanglah kepada saya nak dalami ilmu agama sendiri.

7. Ramai menuduh saya jahat apabila bercerai dahulu. Bekas suami memang nampak warak, tetapi siapa pun tidak tahu saya merana kerana suami mahu seks tiap2 malam dan suka liwat saya.

9. Suami tetap 'mahu' walaupun ketika saya datang bulan. Jika tidak dituruti dia mengancam mahu cari perempuan lain.

10. Saya dipukul suami ketika mengandung anak kedua dahulu kerana saya tidak mahu beri dia duit yang saya kumpul untuk belanja bersalin. Dia penganggur dan gila main muzik sahaja. Duit tu dia nak beli gitar.

11. Bekas suami saya dahulu memang kacak, kaya dan berkedudukan. Namun, saya lebih rela bercerai kerana dia ketagih hubungan seks sesama jenis.

12. Saya rasa benar-benar terhina kerana suami mengabaikan keluarga apabila asyik bercinta dengan "maknyah".

13. Hancur hati saya apabila terserempak suami memakai coli dan seluar dalam saya. Rupa2nya dahulu dia "maknyah" dan berkahwin dengan saya kerana menuruti kehendak emaknya.

14. Suami tidak pernah azan atau qamatkan kedua-dua anak kami sebaik sahaja dilahirkan dahulu.

15. Suami tidak mengaku anak lelaki bongsu zuriatnya, walaupun muka si anak 99.9% muka dia. Semua kerana suami cemburu sangat pada bos saya. Biarlah dia terus menfitnah saya kalau itu memberi kepuasan kepadanya.

16. Saya dah tak larat menasihati suami supaya sembahyang. Bulan puasa dia suruh saya masak macam biasa. Anak2 keliru melihat gelagat bapa mereka. Saya didik lain, si bapa tunjuk "contoh" lain.

17. Apabila marah, suami suka mengungkit setiap sen yang dibelanja untuk saya, sampaikan tambang haji saya ke Makkah yang dia bayarkan 3 tahun dahulu masih terus diungkit setiapkali bergaduh.

18. Suami tetap mahu saya masak macam biasa, hubungan seks 2-3 x seminggu dan rumah tidak boleh bersepah... walaupun saya sedang sarat mengandung.

19. Setiap kali mengandung, pandai2lah saya berjimat cermat untuk belanja bersalin. Apabila dah sampai waktu nak beranak, kemas kain baju sendiri, tahan teksi, pergi hospital sendiri. Jika nasib baik, suami jemput, kalau tidak pandai2lah saya balik rumah dengan anak.

20. Memang saya bengkak kerana suami sanggup memaki hamun saya depan anak kerana tidak memandu berhati2 sehingga kemalangan dan merosakkan kereta kesayangannya.

21. Siapa tidak sayang emak. Tetapi, saya tidak boleh tahan kalau suami sanggup bergolok-bergadai semata2 mahu penuhi hajat emaknya yang berselera besar. Duit gajinya tak pernah cukup sebab bayar hutang kad. Terpaksalah saya menyara anak2.

22. Kalau anak nak minta duit beli buku sekolah, suami asyik kata 'takde duit'. Kalau nak beli joran dan umpan, ada pula. Saya perhatikan saja gelagat. Nak tengok sampai setakat mana 'lemaknya'.

23. Suami gila beli nombor ekor. Biasanya, dia suka tulis angka 0-9, letak di dalam mangkuk buat cabutan. lepas tu kalau ada nombor yang mengena, 2-3 hari tak keluar bawak teksi.

24. Tabiat suami saya memang pelik. Kalau ada masalah saja mesti cari bomoh, lepas itu tanam macam2 jenis tangkal, mesti dia nak pergi 'bersangkak'.

25. Sewaktu bercinta mmg saya tahu suami kaki judi tetapi dia berjanji nak berhenti lepas kahwin. Tak cukup gaji, barang kemas saya digadaikan. Orang datang tuntut hutang perkara biasa ~ pernah rumah kami dibaling tahi.

26. Ketika bapa meninggal dunia dulu, baru kami tahu dia ada 3 isteri lain dan anak masih kecil. Rupa2nya selama ini emak tahu arwah suka kahwin cerai di merata2 tempat. Emak tidak peduli, asal arwah tidak menganggu hidupnya.

27. 3-4 bulan suami 'hilang' itu perkara biasa. Kadang2 sampai setahun. Saya tak perlu cari kerana tahu mesti dia di Serenti. Biasanya, dia kena 'serkup' waktu tengah tarik ganja dengan kawan2.

28. Anak ke-3 kami terencat sedikit. Suami penagih kronik dan sekarang dah ada tanda2 HIV.

29. Suami saya memang warak. Sembahyang tak pernah tinggal. Tetapi, saya tidak boleh tahan panas barannya. Kalau marah, habis dibaling barang2 rumah. Kalau pukul, anak dibaling macam bola.

30. Pernah saya nasihat suami jangan suka terima rasuah. Dia degil. Mula2 cuma hamper, kemudian barang kemas. Akhir sekali duit berpuluh2 ribu. Apabila dia kena cekup polis saya nak kata apa? Terpaksalah saya sara anak sementara dia di dalam penjara.

31. Sejak berniaga, suami gila karaoke. Kononnya nak rai pelanggan. Kesudahannya dia yang sangkut dengan GRO Filipina di situ. Sekarang perniagaanya lingkup dan dia dah ikut perempuan Filipina tu balik negeri. Dengar khabar dah dapat anak luar nikah.

32. Dulu hidup kami senang juga. Tetapi, selepas suami kena buang kerja sebab ketagih dadah dan selalu ponteng kerja, terpaksalah saya kerja kilang nak sara anak2.

33. Kalau seronok beristeri muda, mengapa mesti nak banding2kan kehebatan si madu di ranjang dengan saya? Tak puas lagi menyakitkan hati saya selama ini?

34. Kami memang miskin. Saya buat macam2 benda untuk tambah pendapatan. Jualan langsung, buat kuih, jual nasi lemak, jaga anak orang, upah sembat baju kurung. Suami saya lain pula ceritanya. Malam jadi "jaga".. siang dia kerja tidur atau melangut di kedai kopi.

35. Bab duit ringgit saya tak nafikan suami memang bertanggungjawab. Saya dapat banglo besar, kereta besar, belanja mewah. Tetapi jiwa saya kering. Suami sayang anak, tetapi masih membiarkan saya melihat "gigitan cinta" perempuan lain di badannya.

36. Pakcik saya memang hebat sewaktu muda. Kacak, bijak dan kerja besar. Isteri 2-3 orang, kekasih keliling pinggang. Anak ramai. Tetapi selepas pencen, dia papa kedana sebab duit KWSP habis bayar hutang. Kesudahannya, semua isteri minta cerai dan anak lenyap. Akhirnya dia mati seorang diri di katil hospital wad kelas tiga. Jenazahnya di urus abang saya dan pihak hospital.

37. Saya bekerja, suami bekerja. Tetapi, apabila pulang dari pejabat, suami terus capai kunci motor besarnya, merambu dengan kawan2 macam orang muda... sampai tergadai Maghrib dan Isyak. Tinggallah saya di rumah sorang diri terkial-kial menguruskan anak.

38. Walaupun sudah lama masuk Islam... mandi hadas? Saya masuk Islam kerana mahu kahwin dengan suami. Tetapi dia tidak pernah sekali pun beritahu saya perlu mandi hadas selepas bersetubuh atau datang bulan. Dia sendiri pun tak pernah buat.

39. Bagi saya perkahwinan sebenarnya lebih menguntungkan lelaki kerana mereka dapat buktikan kejantanan kepada kawan2 apabila isteri hamil, dapat pengurus tetap menjaga kain baju mereka, dapat tukang masak percuma, dapat joli lebih sebab isteri juga bekerja dan bantu sara keluarga serta dapat seks halal. Isteri dapat apa? Tugas bertambah dan silap haribulan berendam airmata...

40. Selepas 17 tahun berkahwin, rasa2nya gelaran saya sudah berubah. Dahulu 'isteri' sekarang 'pengurus anak-anak'. Hubungan dengan suami amat dingin. Kami hanya bercakap pekara penting sahaja. Hubungan seks hanya 2-3 bulan sekali. Itupun saya yang 'terhegeh-hegeh' . Saya pelik benar kerana dia bukan kaki perempuan dan memang confirm tiada isteri lain.

More Great Economic News

Following the reports about the increase in hunger in America, the Federal Reserve issued a report yesterday noting that after adjusting for inflation, the median income for American families suffered a setback, decreasing 2.3% between 2001 and 2004. But despite the hemming and hawing from corporate America, overall, businesses aren’t doing nearly as bad their employees:

“What’s troubling about the economic recovery that we’ve been in is that all of the traditional indicators of employment, household income and poverty levels are lagging behind prior expansions,” said Jean Ross, director of the California Budget Project, an economic think tank in Sacramento.

“The only indicator that is doing better than in prior expansions is corporate profits, which indicates that businesses aren’t passing on what they are gaining to their workers,” she said.

Other economic indicators like net worth have risen, albeit very grudgingly, moving up only 1.5%- the weakest measured gain in a decade. By contrast, between 1995 and 1998 that increase was 12.3% and between 1998-2001 the increase was 17.3%. But those were years Clinton was in office, so while Bush II’s supporters like to give him credit for today’s economy, they say that the good times in the 90’s were inherited by Clinton from the Reagan/Bush I years. And now, of course, any bad news during Bush II’s term are remnants of Clinton’s economic policies. Nothing like having your cake and eating it too, I guess.

Oh yes, the net unemployment rate from early 2001 to August 2003 was negative- 2.7 million fewer working Americans.


50 Dollars is 50 Dollars...

Morris and his wife Esther went to the state fair every year, and every year Morris would say, "Esther, I'd like to ride in that helicopter."

Esther always replied, "I know Morris, but that helicopter ride is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

One year Esther and Morris went to the fair, and Morris said "Esther, I'm 85 years old. If I don't ride that helicopter, I might die"

Esther replied: "Morris that helicopter is 50 dollars and 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

The pilot overheard the couple and said, "folks I'll make you a deal - I'll take the both of you for a ride. If you can stay quiet for the entire ride and not say a word I won't charge you! But if you say one word, it's 50 dollars".

Morris and Esther agreed and up they went. The pilot did all kinds of fancy manoeuvres, but not a word was heard. He did his daredevil tricks over and over again, but still not a word. When they landed, the pilot turned to Morris and said "by golly, I did everything I could to make you say something.."

Morris replied "well, I was going to say something when Esther fell out, but 50 dollars is 50 dollars."

Colours For Men

Men around the world are eager to know which colors match properly and which shades actually suit them best. Today, however, you'll learn what some of the most popular colors in fashion can actually say about your individuality. The results are inspired from information we gathered from our female readers and research in various fashion publications.

Although most of us don't really care what the opposite sex thinks about the way we dress (yeah right), it's quite entertaining to know which color expresses our personalities best. So read on to find out how you can bring out your best features with different colors and, in turn, please the ladies.

RED ALERT
The color red is the hue at the long-wave end of the visible spectrum, evoked in the human observer by radiant energy with wavelengths of approximately 630 to 750 nanometers. Boring! Who cares what the color red literally means - right.

The color red evokes dominance, power and attention. Red clothing will definitely make you stand out from the rest of the crowd and will mark you with sexual energy. Red is a commanding color that should be worn once in a while, for those times when you really want to make a statement and be different.

Here are a few striking red fashion items you could wear to make your statement:
  • Red V-neck or crew neck sweaters
  • A sturdy red windbreaker
  • A red umbrella
  • A red button-down shirt
  • A red suit with matching red shoes (only if you're looking to do a little pimpin')

PEACH/PINK
Peach and pink project an upbeat attitude and calming characteristics, as well as good health. Remember, these explanations are generic and won't apply to every man wearing such colors. So don't think you'll look healthier just because you're wearing a pink or peach sweater, although it might liven up your outer shell.

Here are a few peach or pink fashion items that can lighten up your appearance:
  • A peach button-down shirt (for late afternoon cocktail parties)
  • Pink was in last summer -- but won't be this summer.
  • A peach wool cardigan or crew neck sweater (with dark indigo jeans)

BLACK
The color of darkness is undoubtedly the most popular color in fashion. A man wearing black suggests elegance, authority and power. When worn properly, black clothing also conveys neatness, simplicity and great versatility.

I don't know of any piece of clothing or fashion accessory that doesn't look good in black. Never hesitate to go with black - just don't wear all black, all the time.


WHITE
White clothing is a sign of virtue and can give you an extremely clean appearance. This obviously implies that your white clothing should be spotless. White clothing can also point towards a higher social status, and looks very preppy.
  • A white button-down shirt
  • In summer, a nice pair of white linen pants
  • A trendy white winter/spring/fall jacket
  • For summer galas, a well-tailored white suit will set you apart

Group of Animals

Animals come in many forms, sizes and shapes and are usually grouped together in the wild for different reasons. They may work together as a team to; gather food effectively and efficiently, for protection, grooming, raising of their young, for migration and to play. You can go through the list to see what you know, ponder over a few and learn the rest. For example, what are a group of giraffes called? Or what are a group of owls called?

A HUNTING TALE

A father and son went hunting together for the first time.

The father said: "Stay here and be very QUIET. I'll be across the field."

A few minutes later the father heard a blood curdling scream and ran back to his son. "What's wrong?" the father asked. "I told you to be quiet."

The boy, bless his heart, answered;

"Look, I was quiet when the snake slithered across my feet. I was quiet when the bear breathed down my neck. I didn't move a muscle when the skunk climbed over my shoulder. I closed my eyes and held my breath when the wasp stung me. I didn't cough when I swallowed the gnat. I didn't cuss or scratch when the poison oak started itching.

But when the two squirrels crawled up my pant legs and said, 'Should we eat them here or take them with us?' Well, I guess I just panicked...

TOP TEN Excuses - If You Get Caught Sleeping At Your Desk At Work

10. "They told me at the blood bank this might happen."

9. "This is just a 15 minute power-nap like they raved about in that time management course you sent me to."

8. "Whew! Guess I left the top off the white-out. You probably got here just in time!"

7. "I wasn't sleeping! I was meditating on the mission statement and envisioning a new paradigm."

6. "I was testing my keyboard for drool resistance."


5. "I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve work-related stress. Are you discriminatory toward people who practice Yoga?"


4. "Why did you interrupt me? I had almost figured out a solution to our biggest problem."


3. "The coffee machine is broken..."


2. "Someone must've put decaf in the wrong pot..."

And the #1 excuse to say if you get caught sleeping at your desk.
1. " ...... AMIIIN!"

Corruption

At the height of a political corruption trial, the prosecuting attorney attacked a witness. "Isn't it true," he bellowed, "that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?"

The witness stared out the window, as though he hadn't hear the question.

"Isn't it true that you accepted five thousand dollars to compromise this case?" the lawyer repeated loudly.

The witness still did not respond.

Finally, the judge leaned over and said, "Sir, please answer the question."

"Oh," the startled witness said, "I thought he was talking to you."

Internet

For you to be here reading this article we all of have some one to thank for the invention of this communication platform called the internet. Some of us are avid users of the internet who might be a fellow blogger, a surfer, an online business owner, a student, teacher, a stay at home mom and the list goes on but, have you ever wonder who invented the web? If you do know, then congrats but I hope you did not say Bill Gates. William "Bill" Henry Gates III is the cofounder, chairman and Chief Software Architect of Microsoft Corporation. He controls the largest software company in the world and is also the worlds richest individual. Well, if that was your answer or you cannot answer the question above then, that’s where this article comes in.

How it all began - a quick synopsis of the internet history
The pavement for the internet was sparked by the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) launching of the first earth satellite called Sputnik in 1957. The United States was shocked by the USSR advancement in technology and out of fear, they envisioned the danger of the Soviet creating weapons in space that could strike them anytime and place in the US. Seeing the danger that they would be helpless and susceptible to such a potential attack they quickly responded by forming an organization called Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) in 1959. This organization came under the umbrella of the Department of Defense (DoD) and was given the responsibility to establish the United States as a military leader in the advancement of science and technology. This set off the space race between both countries.

[Note: The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was commonly called Soviet Union or Russia. Abbr. USSR.]

By the year 1965 due to the theories of computer networking development, ARPA sponsored a study on 'co-operative network of time-sharing computers'. In 1968 Pentagon (the United States military head quarters) put forward a proposal for the Advanced Research Projects Agency Network (ARPANET) - a pioneering wide area computer network- to unite America's military and scientific establishments. In 1972 The Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA) was renamed The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

The genesis of the Internet

By the late 1980’s researchers (from around the world) contributing at the European Particle Research Laboratory (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland were having problems organizing and formatting documents that they wanted to share since their different computers and software system had to be compatible with the main CERN computing system. This caused frustration which lead to an unwillingness to comply to the CERN computing system. In addition, CERN being the premier Internet site in Europe were having serious problems locating all their data information. There system was quickly becoming overwhelmed by daily data information and urgently need a system that could readily correct this problem. There problem was however answered by a young computer researcher named Tim Berners-Lee.


The inventor of the web

Tim Berners-Lee, a British scientist invented the World Wide Web in 1990. He graduated from the Queen's College at Oxford University, England, 1976. In 1980 he spent six months at CERN as a consultant software engineer. While there, he wrote his own personal software program as a memory substitute for storing data information called "Enquire". Even though this was not published it set the foundation on which the internet concept was built for the future. In 1984 however, he took up a fellowship at this same organization and in 1989 in response to the problems that was facing CERN he submitted a proposal called the global hypertext project. The purpose of this project was for the development of a data information system that would create a network (web) of information. This information system is now known as the World Wide Web.

In 1990, he wrote the first World Wide Web (WWW) server called the Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP). This “WWW” system that he would design was the method in which computers would communicate over the internet using hypertext documents. This system worked by assigning a universal system of written documents with addresses and hypertext links to all information. He called the system of written addresses a Universal Resource Identifier (URI). This is now known as Uniform Resource Locator (URL).

A hypertext link is a computer-based text retrieval system that enables a user to access particular locations in webpages documents by clicking on links within specific webpages or documents. By October 1990 Tim Berners-Lee started working on his proposal and wrote a program - hypertext browser/editor -that would allow hypertext documents to be retrieved and viewed. In the summer of 1991 his WorldWideWeb browser/editor and web server software, that was originated within CERN, became available on the Internet. Researchers and computer enthusiasts from around the world began setting up their own web system by downloading the browser and the web server software using File Transfer Protocol (FTP). His goal became a reality that would now solve the problem that the scientist at CERN where facing. Scientists were now able to send and post information documents on the web that could easily be assessed by anyone around the world that needed that specific information. This therefore means that they didn’t have to worry or get frustrated of whether the operating system used by other scientists were compatible or not due to the difference in the different operating systems used.


During the next three years as users of the internet spread, Berners-Lee worked on refining the internet through feedback from its users. In 1994 he went to the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) where he worked in the Laboratory department for Computer Science (LCS). He wanted the World Wide Web to be free and not to be controled by any company or institution manipulated by destructive competition and so, he envisioned a consortium that would enhance the full potential of the Web development thus ensuring stability and evolutionary transformation of the web in a standardize democratic process. Thus, through the help of MIT he head the new consortium as Director, known as the World Wide Web consortium (W3C) and coordinates all three centers world wide MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory (CSAIL) in the US, European Research Consortium for Informatics and Mathematics (ERCIM) in France, and Keio University in Japan. The goal and mission of W3C is to ensure the web stability by standardizing the technical specifications of the WWW and laying down guidelines by which to follow by a democratic process. These standards and guidelines are not enforced but are recommended by W3C . This they achieved by bringing together all its members and other internet/software companies such as Microsoft, Sun, IBM, Apple and Netscape just to name a few.


Discussion

The internet might have just started 15 years ago but it is now one of the most important universal communication platforms. In spite of all this, Tim Berners-Lee development of the web has not brought him wealth and fame. However, it can be concluded that the purpose of his invention of the Web was not for monetary gains. We all owe the “father of the web” for this great invention that has improved our way of life in so many different ways.

  • Hair only grows 0.3 to 0.5 millimeters each day.
  • Your hair is a record book of your lifestyle. In its physical and chemical structure it can tell if you: smoke, drink and take drugs. It can also tell: what you eat, where you live, your habits, ethic origin and lifestyle. There is only one thing about you that your hair cannot reveal: Your gender.
  • Blondes are most likely to develop a completely white head of hair in old age than any other hair color because their hair fiber has a very low concentration melanin pigment in it.
  • The lifespan of a human hair is 3 to 7 years in the average.
  • The average person has up to 150,000 hairs on her or his head.
  • African hair grows more slowly and is more fragile than European hair. Asian hair grows the fastest and has the greatest elasticity.
  • Africans and Europeans are more prone than Asians to balding.
  • Hair texture can be temporarily or permanently altered by pregnancy, medication, chemotherapy and age.

10 Things You Should Know About A True Blue Johorean

Actually I stole this from Sultana's blog dengan sedikit tambahan... Ahaks!!! :-)

Dapat dari forum. Miaha ha ha... Bila pikir2 balik, ada betul gak kata2 penulis.... :) Tp memandangkan dah lama tak dok Johor, jadi sedikit sebanyak dah kurang sikit lah tanda2 kejohoran aku nih. Kakak pun pernah tegur, "cakap cam orang KL eh." Dia refer kat aku lah. Hmmm... You all buat lah penilaian, betul ke tak betul keterangan kat bawah nih.. Refer2 lah kat member yang asal dari Johor tuh.. :)

1. They end 9 out of 10 sentences with Ekkk... Ekk ialah trademark orang Johor. Digunakan di hujung SETIAP ayat menggantikan tanda soal (question mark). Contoh :- Ni awak punyer ekk? Nama awak saper ekk ? Kenapa kite kaler tak cantik ekk ? Dan macam-macam ekk lagi. Aku teringat semasa aku sekolah dulu, aku dan member sebelah aku boring yang amat di dalam kelas, so to keep us awake, kami dok mengira berapa kali Cikgu sebut ekk. In a period of 40 minutes, dekat 100 kali! Lepas tu kami gelarkan Cikgu tu as Cikgu Fadzillah* Ekk. (*bukan nama sebenar).

2. They refer to Johor Bahru as Johor and not JB. Kalau orang di negeri Johor sebut Johor, it meant Johor Bahru (JB), the city dan bukan Johor, the state. Biasa digunakan oleh mereka yang tinggal di luar bandar Johor Bahru seperti di Masai-chusettes umpamanya. Contoh : Beb, gua nak turun Johor laa. Lu mahu ikut gua tak? So, if you ARE already in Johor, tak kira di daerah mana - if the locals kata nak pergi Johor, it means nak ke Johor Bahru. Jangan pulak buat lawak bongok** berkata, " Eh, lu kan dah ada kat Johor?" Or worse, jangan memandai nak tambah ekk with that question.

3. They pronounce Muar as MUOR. (kena juih bibir sikit) In fact you pronounce everything that ends with "AR" as "OR". Contoh : Aku kena pakai seluor besor untuk main bolor kat Muor besok. (Aku kena pakai seluar besar nak main bola di Muar besok). Aku teringat Kakak tegur aku bila aku cakap macam tu. Kenapa Mama sebut besar, BESOR ? Slipper , SLIPPOR ? Aku tergelak. Aku cuma speak like that bila berjumpa dengan true blue Johorean aje. Lapo (lapar), penampor (penampar), ulor (ular), pagor (pagar) dan lain-lain.

4. They are brash with a CRAZY sense of humour. Honestly, I belum pernah jumpa orang Johor yang serious or square to a T. Or cannot take a joke. Walaupun pendiam atau pemalu , but their sense of humour boleh tahan gak. Almost all of them (yang aku jumpa dan kenal lah) are either loyar buruk or bigor **. Baik di kampung mahu di Bandar. The sense of humour is unique that I find kadang-kadang orang luar (non-Johorean) agak takut with the brashness of budak-budak Johor. (Did you see Majalah 3 the other night - see how Tunku Yem (nama manja Tunku Mahkota Johor) bercerita pasal anakanda dia Tunku Ismail ? Haha.... that is exactly my point!)

5. Diorang ada ENDUT **. Kalau tak pernah berendut, sure pernah ada endut or busuk-busuk pun teringin nak ada endut. Contoh ayat : Haa...kau dah ada endut yer ? Kau pergi berendut kat mana ? Orang berendut dia pun nak berendut.

6. Diorang Makan Gula Tarik, Sagun, Gula Kandy, Bobotok.... Dah lama aku tak tengok atau makan gula tarik, sagun or kandy. Ada lagi ke bebenda ni kat Johor ? Aku tak boleh nak describe dengan teliti these things cos it has been 30 years since I last tasted them. Seperti Kak P cakap - makanan seperti botok-botok. Kalau out of Johor, botok-botok dikenali dengan nama PAIS IKAN. Jangan tanya aku how to describe the ingredients cos aku tak berapa gemar makan sebab guna banyak sangat daun ( aku tak suka makan sayur - especially ulam). Yang aku tahu - pakai daun segala daun, termasuk daun betik dan gunakan kari ikan and balut dengan daun-daun tu dan kukus. Aku pernah tanya my Dad dulu - kenapa buruk benor nama dia bebotok. Then my Dad cerita : Di zaman dulu ada seorang nenek yang tinggal seorang diri. Everyday cucu dia akan datang bawak makanan. Nenek ini suka sangat pais ikan dengan bubur so dia suruh cucu ni bawak tetiap hari. Bila cucu tu bawak makanan lain, Nenek akan tanya " Mana Bubur Tok? ". Lama-lama Bubur Tok jadilah Bebotok - kesan dari cakap cepat-cepat. Itulah ceritanya. Aku kecik lagi masa my Dad cerita tu. So, kalau dia kelentong aku - maka kelentonglah cerita bebotok tu. Sekian adanya.

7. Pernah (or berangan nak) jadi Mat Rock . Aku rasa sebab kedudukan Johor dekat dengan Singapore, sebab itulah pengaruh Barat di Malaysia masuk melalui Johor dulu. Itu teori aku lah. But kalau ikutkan sejarah Johor, Sultan yang mula-mula kawin dengan Mat Salleh pun Sultan Johor (Almarhum). So, tak heranlah kalau kumpulan Rock kat Malaysia ini semua ada susur galur dari Johor. Amy, Zainal Abidin, Nash etc. Boleh pakai ke teori aku ni? Jangan aku kena pancung dengan Sultan, dah ler. Ampun Tuanku!

8. Kenduri Kawin Ada Telur Pindang Telur pindang ialah telur ayam yang direbus dengan segala macam rempah dan dedaun untuk mendapatkan that special taste. Lepas rebus, telur akan berwarna cokelat. Both kulit dan isi. I don't like to eat telur pindang, so I cannot to describe the taste. Normally orang buat telur pindang ni for special occasion, seperti majlis perkahwinan. Zaman dulu-dulu, you can tell the social class of the tuan rumah - normally orang kaya-kaya jer buat telur pindang ni sebab ianya rumit dan makan masa berjam-jam therefore menggunakan kos yang tinggi.

9. Tidur atas LECA** (rhyme with letak and baca, the non-baku way). Baju simpan dalam GEROBOK **.

10. They never watch RTM sebab semua cerita dah tengok kat TV Singapore! When I was growing up, aku cukup suka tengok TV Singapore sebab iklan dia semua dari overseas, very menarik. Besides the cerita yang terkinilah. Yang aku suka ialah iklan jeans Levi's (Let your love flow), iklan lagu Coke (I'd like to build the world a home), iklan Kodak (Times of Your Life -Paul Anka). Paling syok ialah masa Christmas, iklan dan lagu semua best-best. (But itu dulu, sekarang aku rasa semua rancangan sudah semasa.) Well, TV Singapore cuma dapat ditengok oleh penduduk JB dan kawasan yang sewaktu dengannya. As you go further up north (of Johor), you can see aerial TV semua setinggi pokok kelapa - semata-mata nak dapatkan siaran from Singapore!

Apa lagi EKK? Kamus Johor :Bongok - bodoh, Bigor - gila-gila, contoh :- Apek Senario tu macam budak BIGOR ekk? Endut - makwe/pakwe. Awek/balak. Boifren/girlfren. Boleh digunakan tanpa mengira jantina. Berendut - berpasangan. Pergi berendut - dating. Botok-botok, bebotok - sejenis makanan menggunakan ikan, ditambah memacam dedaun, letak serbuk kari (don't ask me - aku tak reti buat) dan dibalut dengan daun betik, diikat dengan tali sebelum dikukus. Alah, macam Pais Ikan tuh. Leca - tilam. Normally dibuat sendiri menggunakan kekabu (orang zaman dulu-dulu semua DIY - tak ada Vono, Slumberland ). Gerobok, Gobok - cupboard. Almari. Tak kiralah simpan kain baju ke, simpan pinggan mangkok ke.

p.s. Orang Johor jangan marah ekkk?

Gender friendship

Seems as though male and female friendship works in different ways

Friendship Between Women:
A woman didn't come home one night. The next day she told her husband that she had slept over at a girlfriend's house. The man called his wife's 10 best friends. None of them knew anything about it.

Friendship Between Men:
A man didn't come home one night. The next day he told his wife that he had slept over at a mate's house. The woman called her husband's 10 best friends. Eight of them confirmed that he had slept over, and two claimed that he was still there.

Wheel of Fortune

He looks like a friendly type of chap, now what could the phase on his t-shirt be?

Single...

A woman was shopping at her local supermarket where she selected:

* 2 litres of low fat milk
* a carton of eggs
* 2 litres of orange juice
* a head of lettuce
* half a dozen tomatoes
* a 500g jar of coffee
* a 250g pack of mutton

As she was unloading her items on the conveyor belt to check out, A drunk standing behind her watched as she placed the items in front of the cashier.

While the cashier was ringing up her purchases, the drunk calmly stated, "You must be single."

The woman was a bit startled by this proclamation, but she was intrigued by the derelict's intuition, since she was indeed single. She looked at her six items on the belt and saw nothing particularly unusual about her selections that could have tipped off the Drunk to her marital status. Curiosity getting the better of her, she said, "Well, you know what, you're absolutely correct. But how on earth did you know that?"

The drunk replied, "Cause you're ugly."
