hahaz...


Oh well,
this Beng-ism can be found significantly from the role played by Phua Chu Kang,
especially from the episode of Singaporean sitcom PCK Pte Ltd, titled "Lord of the Bengs" in Jan 14, 2003. LoLz...
e.g.
:: He can spit into a bowl of exactly 3m away with a simple "Kaaakkk... Puuuuiii!" ::
:: He drinks coffee (or kopi, the proper Beng of pronouncing it) from the traditional porcelain cup and saucer, but stirs the contents of the cup violently and makes as much noise as possible... without spilling a drop. The Beng way of sitting at the table is with one leg up on the stool. ::
:: He has the loudest mobile ringtones around. The songs of choice are either Tarzan Boy or Barbie Girl. The point is to make sure others hear and notice his ringtones. ::
:: He doesn't do designer coffee brands. He won't pay more than 70 sen for a cup. "Decaf" isn't in his vocabulary. ::
:: He is health-conscious and that's why he sports a long finger-nail on his pinkie.. all the better to clean his ears with. ::
:: He has a unique command of the English Language. He pronounces "lounge" as "longe", Mercedes as "Mer-cee-lee" and "never mind" as"near mine". Or course, the stressed syllable "lah" is of utmost importance, such as in "Steady lah!"::


Do you have the characteristics as mentioned above?

lastly...

Worth pondering!

Another forwarded mail received from my friend and I think its quite familiar to you, reader as well...
As an email user,
we might often receive this kind of mail:


抱歉,我很愛我媽媽(谁不爱?) 對不起我叫謝文雄(我更对不起,因为我不认识你) ,我在民國96年5月 0號(看你用这种日期,台湾人吧?),被人殺了(被杀了还会寄电邮哦?),屍體埋在港埔國小附近(哪里来的?),如果你把這封信 刪除的話(我待回就删),你的家人會在7天內死亡(我家有108个成员,其中一个人挂点的话,你家人更惨),如果你在看到這封信的 小時內(我看到很久了),傳給30個人你家 就不會鬧鬼(抱歉,我家已经是鬼屋了),我是被逼ㄉ(有人用枪指着你吗?) 請幫忙找到犯人(这工作请留给警察,而且这里是马来西亚,我帮不了,也不想帮) 你把這封信發給你的30個好友(那...我屁股会很痛),10天後(那么久哦...),你喜歡的人就會喜歡上你(我单身无对象)。如果不發(改过后才发),你媽媽啊就會在50天後(阿妈,别担心,你还有整个月的时间),被車撞死(车...是什么?拍谢啦,我家的地方很穷,没看过你所谓的车),很靈(上帝更灵,一切咒诅,立刻砍断!)"為了媽媽!還是傳吧" (不能为了爸爸、哥哥、姐姐、公公、阿嬷他们而传哦?)



喂! 拜托各位,别白痴好不好?如果真的是根据这封信的内容的话,我妈早就瓜掉千百次了!我没传过类似的东西已经几百年了,你们还在那边传?你们还信? 笑死我了。电影也有得看,这类鬼邮件通常有两个结果:1)当场把开邮件的人给解决掉,再外传邮件。2)鬼被人给收掉了,大团圆结局。根据结局1,传邮件给 我的人早就死掉,我也不必再顾虑他或他的妈妈,把连锁给停了。
根 据结局2的话...我也不用再传啊!如果真的有鬼的话,欢迎找上我啊!发邮者是无神主义者,没有神的保佑,亏某些人还是佛教徒基督徒,有佛祖或耶稣保佑, 竟然还相信这些东西还怕鬼... 无可救药!还有那种爸爸快要死掉的,妈妈又末期肝癌躺在医院的,可以靠传邮件赚取医药费的,白痴啊?那我就去跟什么AOL等等的机构申请然后寄邮件,再坐 在家里等钱进入口袋了。有胆的,就把这封改过的信回给所寄给你的人,看他们有什么意见?人家外国人早已把这些垃圾邮件“失传“掉,如果被他们看到的话肯定 笑掉大牙!真不想让他们看到我有类似会相信这些垃圾的朋友...哎...

P.S.:如果我再从任何人手上接到类似的邮件,我会轰炸回他的信箱...

我姓吕,名顺鸿,我希望从此这些垃圾会永远消失在我的电邮箱里。电邮不是这样用的。谁支持的话,就签下大名,寄出去,等有一天这封信再回到你邮箱时就不用再管了。相反的,有谁不爽的话,要删掉就请便。(p/s: 请不要拿别人的妈妈来威胁别人,那样很缺德...嘻嘻)

[by 顺鸿]

Yeah, these are worth pondering and I've sent this mail (considered as petition?) to most of my friends...
Not all though due to too many contacts in my list =P
Well,
this is not an offence but just to share with you all...
Wish I wouldn't receive this kind of forwarded mail or message anymore
=)
You too, right?

E-mail Etiquette

This is advice from a Network Administrator responsible for all of the computers at a very large corporation.
It is an excellent message that
ABSOLUTELY applies to ALL of us who send emails.

Please read the short letter below, even if you're sure you already follow proper procedures.

Do you really know how to forward emails? 50% of us do; 50% DO NOT.


Do you wonder why you get viruses or junk mail? Do you hate it?

Every time you forward an email there is information left over from the people who received the message before you did, namely their email addresses and names. As the messages get forwarded along, the list of addresses builds, and all it takes is for one person to get a virus, and his computer can send that virus to every email address that has come across his computer.

Or, someone can take all of those addresses and sell them or send junk mail to them in the hopes that you will go to the site and he will make five cents for each hit. That's right, all of that inconvenience over a nickel!

How do you stop it? Well, there are several easy steps. Try the following if you haven't done it before:

1)
When you forward an email, DELETE all of the other addresses that appear in the body of the message (at the top).

Highlight them and delete them, backspace them, cut them, whatever it is you know how to do. It only takes a second.

You MUST click the 'Forward' button first and then you will have full editing capabilities against the body and headers of the message.

If you don't click on 'Forward' first, you won't be able to edit the message at all.

2) Whenever you send an email to more than one person, do NOT use the To: or Cc: fields for adding email addresses.

Always use the BCC:(blind carbon copy) field for listing ALL the email addresses.
This way the people you send to will only see their own email address. If you don't see your BCC: option click on where it says TO: and your address list will appear. Highlight the address and choose BCC: and that's it, it's that easy. When you send to BCC: your message will automatically say 'Undisclosed Recipients in the 'TO:' field of the people who receive it.

(3) Remove any 'FW :' in the subject line. You can re-name the subject if you wish or even fix spelling.

(4)
ALWAYS hit your Forward button from the actual email you are reading. (You may have had to open numerous other pages before you got to the real forwarded message!)

Ever get those emails that you have to open 10 pages to read the one page with the information on it?
By Forwarding from the actual page you wish someone to view, you stop them from having to open many emails just to see what you sent.

(5) Have you ever gotten an email that is a petition?
It states a position and asks you to add your name and address and to forward it to 10 or 15 people or your entire address book. The email can be forwarded on and on and can collect thousands of names and email addresses.

FACT:
The completed petition is actually worth a couple of bucks to a professional spammer because of the wealth of valid names and email addresses contained therein.

DO NOT EVER put your email address on any petition. If you want to support the petition, send it as your own personal letter to the intended recipient. Your position may carry more weight as a personal letter than a laundry list of names and email addresses on a petition. (And don't believe the ones that say that the email is being traced; it just ain't so!)

ACTUAL FACT: Most e-mail petitions that are forwarded with just a list of names are worthless because they do not fully identify the signer by street address, etc. Nor does it prove that the signer really signed it. Do not forward them.

Some of the other emails to delete and not forward are:

A. The one that says something like, 'Send this email to 10 people and you'll see something great happen.' Or sometimes they'll say 'something really cute will happen.'

IT WON'T HAPPEN !!!!

B. And don't let the bad luck ones scare you either,you know the ones; "This is Hugo, his parents died in Hurricane Fred and he now lives in a carboard box with a family of blind mice, two of which have cancer and may die at anytime soon.....etc.", they should get trashed!!

IT WON'T HAPPEN !!!!

C. Before you forward an 'Amber Alert, or a 'Virus Alert, or some of the other emails floating around nowadays, check them out before you forward them. Most of them are junk mail that's been circling the net for YEARS! Just about everything you receive in an email that is in question can be checked out at www.truthorfiction.com , www.snopes.com or www.factcheck.com. It's really easy to find out if it's real or not.

If it's not true, please don't pass it on.

So please, in the future, let's stop the junk mail and the viruses. Also get rid of the advertisements at the bottom of your emails! You pay for your internet why advertise free for them? If they want advertisement let them pay you to use your space!!!!

Finally, here's an idea!!! Send this to all your e-mail friends (but strip the address off first, please). This is something that SHOULD be forwarded to everyone you send or swap email with.

Oh well, these really make sense and I'm implementing it! xD
