Di Bawoh Rang Ikang Kering
Random Ramblings of A Retired Retainer


Monday, October 25, 2004

Why is that only the rich & famous have their own magazines? What about the have-nots? I am one of the have-nots. I have no money and most of my teeth most of the time and I am not very happy. Is the lack of purchasing power preventing the birth of magazines for the likes of me and Mok Long Selamoh in Merang Terengganu? The fact that she can't read shouldn't be an excuse.

So, striving for a more equitable world, a more balanced state of affairs, Ying and Yang and all that, I am proposing a new glossy maybe to be printed entirely in Jawi.

The following will be the highlights of the Inaugural issue of the magazine for the have-nots, The Malaysian Takder Ler(c):

WHEELS: The New Jeram Sensation - KeretaKuba Mark III, adding more years to your water buffalo.
FOOD: Dining at (under) the Lemon Tree - How to handle the baring (sand flies).
FASHION TIPS: Choosing the right subang boong to match your kain lepah barat.
SEX: Making love in a crowded one-room village house.
DECOR: The new rage- Linoleum on the dining table.
ETIQUETTE: How to sit properly in a kemban on the steps of your neighbour's house.
ENTERTAINMENT: Confessions of a mok inang Rodat.
HEALTH: Preventing Carpal Tunnel Syndrome when rolling keropok lekor.

Now that I have your attention, do not forget your zakat fitrah. (Buaya69 & Kervin exempted)

  • Pok Ku...Pok Ku...there is always something witty playing in your head that drives you to write blogs such as this.

    I guess age and experience is what it takes to be able to write like you do...
