They should Flippin label things properly -

- 1 I went to the supermarket and bought some chicken, but when I opened the tin I found it was full sardines ... it definitely said Ayam on the tin.

- 2 Then I bought some beer - it said Tiger on the packet, but when I open it I found it wasn't beer .. it was flippin biscuits

There are other things they don't label properly - 3 There is thing that looks like a car called a Proton, but when you drive it you find it's not a proper car after all ! .... (It's only a joke you happy proton drivers)

- 4 There is a party called the United Malays National Organisation, but then surely there are opposition Malay parties so surely that means the Malays are not united ?

- 5 How come they one thing they surely don't grow in Holland is Durian Belanda ?

seriously how come all the cheaper foods from condensed milk to tinned mackerel have palm oil on their list of ingredients ?

NEW KL links page

when this page is no longer updated, but KL Folk Musician : Peter Hassan Brown of lemang.com has his ear to the ground and produces an excellent monthly email of KL Hip events .. just email Peter


Below ..some KL Alternative Music Scene Info

Also pop into the Central Mkt Annex where KL Punk hero : Joe Kidd runs The Ricecooker a resource centre for local bands. So he knows about lots of events see The Ricecooker Yahoo Group.

next door is KL's hippiest hangout : BAU BAU Caf? the guys there run Food Not Bombs and also know about local arts events.

Passion's Myspace site features the tracks Peter and Markiza did together for 2 Albums. Incuding ..Love And Music,and When Are You Coming Home

Peter Hassan Brown's Myspace site feature tracks from his 4 albums over the last 30 years ..track like the sing alongs : Better World and Hard to Dream

You can hear some banging tracks on the Soft Touch Myspace site. Surely you will hear this music in a movie sometime.

KL's Super Talented Satirical Musician : Rafique Rashid : either cleverly or cos of censorship never produces any Albums & never appears on TV so look out for him live .. you might somebootleg tracks somewhere on the web. Not many musicians "take the piss out of politics and life in Malaysia", they usully think it's safer to stick to traditional music.
.. Oh except of course for the excellent Panda Head Curry by the guy from Ben's Bitches my page has more about their biting satire and free album to download
