WWW And What It Means

Everybody knows what www stands for. Even a three year old child can tell you that it means the world wide web that we all can't live without nowadays.
Doodle By Ordinary Malaysian

So, a vehicle bearing WWW1 no plate would carry some cachet.

But I suspect that some old timers with eye-sight problem might mistake WWW1 as World War One and think that it is suey (hokkien for unlucky or ill luck)

I digress.

Since the news that the Sultan of Johore had successfully bid for the right to use the WWW1 no plate came to light that even Washington Post picked up, there has been much twitter and comment in the internet on the news, much of which is negative.

I don't want to add to the noise, because you never know what will happen to you next and I don't want to get into trouble over a car no plate.

In Bolehland, anything you say can be considered sedition and you can be investigated and charged in court for it.

But please don't bother to look into your dictionary for the definition of sedition.

It is not what your dictionary says sedition is. It is not even what the law says it is. It is what the powers that be consider it to be. And it is a favourite and convenient tool to silence your political enemies or perceived ones.

As former Mentri Besar of Perak Nizar Jamaluddin has just conveniently or inconveniently found out.

See, I told you a no plate can get you into trouble.

Only in Bolehland can this happily happen.

Wah lau! Really cool!

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
