  1. Actually I planned to take a shot of it rotating opposite the Spooky Spot and really went there for it. But suddenly realised I left something at the Hotel. Luckily I rushed back just in time to get a shot of this Etihad 777 about to rev its powerful engines up. Any 777 is a beauty.





  2. anyone got updates on this upgrading works? last time i went back to TGG, they're still doing the foundation works...

    I went to TGG in April 2006 and upgrading works were in full swing. According to the taxi driver that drove me to town the works should been finished more than 4 years ago but the change of state government to the opposition halted them. Now that the state has been wrested back by the federal ruling party the works restarted.

  3. Dedicated this to the great peoples that I met at Oscar Hotel.


    :yahoo: Landing Sequence of Alpha Foxtrot Pieter back to her homebase KUL. Flight AXM3000 touched the ground exactly at 09:35. :yahoo:




    Congrats, Kevin! :good:

    BTW, Kevin have better photos of the other 4 Ah Moi. Zoom not enough here... <_>


    Norman - the double amazing is super amazing lah! :yahoo:


    Incidentally on that day, I also drove a 5 seat Alpha Foxtrot Pieter with 4 wheels. :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

    Nice meeting new friends up there on the hill including you. Nice sequence pictures there, Kianhong! :clapping:

  4. Ehemm, ehem... students of Kelantanese 101, let me correct a few things here... :-)


    yes, you're right Mr Maarpf. Tigo sa mah means 3 pieces fr 50 sen. However for RM1.50 it is Tigo Amah not Tiga Mah. The "mah" is exclusively for "sa mah" for 50 sen and "tigo amah" for RM1.50.


    Would like to add that, it is a joke as well (tough a bit distasteful- mod please remove this if it offends), that Indians in Kelantan will always say "Pat ringgit" for four ringgit (instead of "ghia") for potentially derogatory accidental homophonal reasons.


    And yes, Kelantanese uses another word for mangoes. It is "pauh", so avoid trying to Kelantanasize "mempelam". It's the same reason why the Perak royal doesn't have "Tengku Mahkota" but "Raja Muda".


    That, I'd like a Perakian explain.



    Thanks for the correction, Ewan.

    For the confusion about the mango why not just call it 'mangga' as we normally do. It solves all pronouncation problems.

    Well, for 'Tengku Mahkota' and 'Raja Muda', well Johor I think has or had both. How's that?

  5. tigo= 3

    sa mah= RM0.50


    tigo sa mah = RM1.50...hehe


    p/s:H.Azmal..i know how to pronounce 'mempelam' in kelantan dialeg.. :p

    Hafiez, although I've left Kelantan for more than 30 years I think I have to correct you there.

    Tigo sa mah = 3 pieces for RM0.50

    So RM1.50 = tigo mah

    Although RM1.00 should be 'duo mah' they prefer to call it 'seghia'.

    So RM2.00 = duo ghia

    That conludes the class for today. For further classes do ask the real Kelantanese.

  6. I have my Kelantan memories. I spent my secondary education in a residential school, so I had Kelantanese friends and learned a bit of Kelantanese myself. My friends also had the tendency of turning English words and names to Kelantanese. For example "what" is "wok" and agent 007 is pronounced as "Jays Bore". I am sure after 21 movies he is not one.


    So I felt confident when I was posted to Kelantan. One day I went to the market to buy fish. I asked the lady "ni gapo?" She replied "tigo sa mah". I know "tigo" is three as I am from Negeri Sembilan. But what is "sa mah"? So I procuded one ringgit and asked for three fish. She returned .50 cents. I later learned that "sa mah" means "one gold" and the value is .50 cents. I don't know whether the value stands now.



  7. Yes... and look at the way he checked the LCD... above his eye-glasses :rofl:

    That what I always do.... :rofl: :rofl:

    Norman, so I guess you are short sighted, just like me. Why not use double vision spectacles. That way you don't have to take off your specs when you read, view the camera LCD or do computer work. They may cost a few hundred RMs more but its worth it.
