|The Prince of Ipoh has decided to move his blog over to Wordpress. Future updates will be posted here. |
|We all know that the english media in Malaysia is nothing more of a puppet show for certain political parties to assure the english reading public that everything is a ok in our great country. No. I'm not here to complain about the lack of transparency in the media cos I read chinese news. In fact, the purpose of this post is just to bitch about 1 post that my friend asked me to read.|
PPM jobs bring chee to contractors. - The Star (July 19, 2006)
The third paragraph states that the article is a piece of collaborative work by 4 individuals. More like a collaborative effort of last minute copying and quoting what was stated. I could have done a better job while getting rimmed. I used to ... in fact I'm still doing it and getting better than average grades. Copying, not getting rimmed. Focus!
The crime that is committed is worse than frying eggs with abalone. Much worse than the multiple times I observe the 5 second rule on customers' food when I'm helping out in the kitchen.(Hi YY!) Imagine if the the good folks at Sun Yuen Loong Restaurant commits the cardinal sin of roasting the coffee beans in margarine for 1 hour instead of 10, where am I ever gonna find my perfect cuppa Ipoh white coffee?
Maybe the culture of contracting jobs to subcontractors are have finally spread to the media. I propose corporal punishment in the form of lashing per Jia Baoyu by his father as described in "A Dream of Red Mansions" for the betterment of my toilet reading material. Any bids?
|hmmm....no no no no no, i am not of the spanish descent and i am definitely nowhere near age 21.|
but anyways...ola, if you happen to read this from a chicano point of view.
Because i am racially biased against minorities from a less contributing civilization, its very important that i bring you onboard.
Every culture and civilization had their share in making this world a little more hospitable place to live in by innovations and creations.
The Romans led us by far in this great leap forward (until the Americans) with air conditioner, cappuccino,
3-dimensional paintings, spaghetti, an idea to name a cd-burner (Nero), theatres, fashions and of course the list goes on.
The Greeks with Aristotle, AMERICA, mythic legends, the Olympic Games, science and politics and ideas.
The English with the word FUCK.
Chinese created gunpowder, ice cream, papers, printers, scholars and chicken fried rice, you get the idea.
I always ask someone from a different culture when i meet one, whats the contribution your culture had brought to the world?
Last week, my boss brought in Gonzales and Hidalgo to our kitchen team. Knowing my patience for culture strangers, my boss immediately warned me not to cause trouble. Living up to my nickname
'ah ngao' (bull), i approached them to introduce myself. Below's the low down of our introduction.
Ah Ngao: Eh!, you what name?
Gonzales and Hidalgo: Ola
Ah Ngao: OLAA??
Gonzales and Hidalgo: Ola
Ah Ngao: I said name...name, your name
Gonzales and Hidalgo: ????????
Ah Ngao: ok ok, now u call me 'huang ti' ok?
Gonzales and Hidalgo: ok ok.
Mr.Chen: Oi.....bring this to 539 N 24th #11 and here's the ticket
Ah Ngao: ok boss.
I left them to do the dishes alone.
I have nothing against south americans, i think they are huge contributions to this country. They are the ones breaking their back doing our dirty job while we enjoy the riches of this country.
The next time you order your favorite Orange chicken, remember its the Mexicans working the wok behind the kitchen doors. Definitely not chen tao or wang xi xi. Mexicans are the ones cooking the chinese foods here.
The thing about the mexicans is, they are too damn quick for the chinese in the kitchen. There's no way the chinese there can stay competitive. It concerns me and my job security there.
Now's the time i show them who's the emperor here. I used to play in the midwest games for UNL.
My experience as a playmaker in the first 5 team A basketball team made me a fighter for this job i am about to lose. I can be fast like them too because everytime i was about to dribble the ball into the buzzer, ah ching would always say 'nia ma chau ji bai, fai tit lar' to me. That made me play faster.
Ah ching's scoldings still echoes in the background whenever i walk in the kitchen. That made me walk faster than Gonzales and Hidalgo. I cant discredit ah ching for grooming me for times like these.
OOopss, its time to go work now, i better hurry.....
To be continued............
