Facts about Kuching you don't know ! (maybe some of you know these)


DISCLAIMER: I DO NOT OWN THIS POST. It's originally from presstag.blog.com by アブン (all credits to this awesome guy) and I came across it on http://myblogkuching.blogspot.com/2014/05/facts-about-kuching-you-dont-know-maybe.html

Sorry for re-posting but I just HAVE TO let more people know about this.

by アブン on presstag.blogspot.com

Below are some interesting facts about Kuching that we do agree thanks to アブン who had the passion to list them down for us:

1. Kuching is the first city in the country where motorist can 'turn left when exit is clear' legally! (Now started to be implemented in Putrajaya)

2. More than 50% of houses in Kuching are Semi-D and bungalows which is more than any other cities.

3. There are more satelite dishes in the backyard of Kuching houses than other place combined together.

4. Most of Kuching pretty girls go out without make-up,wearing simple short, T-shirt and japanese slippers.(o.O)

5. Kuching is the city where the majority of family in here have the motto of 'one person one car' and not 'one family one car'. When the children get their license, they will eventually have their own car. Form 5 student will drive to school. Even when fuel price hiked the number of cars in a family will still be the same.

6. Kuching's roundabout is VERY VERY VERY big compared to other cities. It has the size of almost 1 and half the size of a football field. They could even build dozens and dozens of houses inside the roundabout and thousands of plants and trees in it.

7. The people here often refer the location in the city by using the word "mile". Example are 3rd mile, 4th mile, 5th mile and so on.

8. Many shops in the cities start to close their shop at around 6pm to 10pm at night.

9. Majority of the people in Kuching is more family minded than money minded.

10. Places that a tourist would most probably visit when they are at Kuching are Jalan Song (for the foods), Friendship park (for dating), Waterfront area (for the culture), cultural village (for the culture also), Damai Beach (for the beach), Santubung (for hiking) and various national parks (for the animals and plants).

11. Foods that should not be missed when visit Kuching are the famous Kolo Mee, Mee Po, Kampua mee, Laksa Sarawak, Kek Batik/Lapis, Kueh Chap and 7th mile teh C peng and most importantly our Tomato Mee.

Jap #3



However, using Japanese to type is using more time and mental energy than I've expected. Although I've checked and changed the mistake using Google translate, I doubt if the sentences will make any sense or look funny.

Then again this is not my point though. My point today was, as you see in the topic, more different cultural differences analysis(?) LOL from me. More of my opinion lah not analysis WHY SO geekily SERIOUS =.= And I'm certainly not a majime. Hehehe. Maybe I am? I don't know.

When saying "Thank you", Japanese will reply in a variety of answers. Unlike Chinese, it's always a reply of "不客气" or "不用谢" which means it's okay or my pleasure or there's no need of thanks. When Japanese will feel it's more polite to say as much thank you as you can, as Chinese you would kinda feel shy if someone keeps saying thank you. However, if Malay or any other Bumi who has Malay as their mother tongue, they'd probably reply you "sama-sama" which means same to you. For English, what's mostly heard will probably be "You're welcome", or "My pleasure." As for the variety of replies that I mentioned before, here are some examples where Japanese will answer you after you told them thank you, or doumo arigatou gozaimasu.

- Kochirakoso, arigatou. (More like Malay's reply of "sama-sama")
- Doitashimashite (You're welcome.)
- Daijoubu/ Iie (It's fine, It's okay)

Japan is not a dating country. Hehehe okay this may sounds a little exaggerated but I think it's getting better throughout the era of globalization lol. Unlike in Korea or any western or more open minded country, you'd see public displays of affections anywhere you go and people wouldn't find it weird or they won't even stare at you. I think it still depends on how open minded the Japanese lover you're dating but most/majority of them will feel shy for holding hands in public. (that's what I heard and I'm looking forward to ask more Japanese friends to make sure) Of course hugging or kissing is kinda weird to do in public. Lolol I know it's the same in Malaysia la. But how about during farewells like when your lover is going travelling on a plane and you had to say goodbye in the departure hall?

Most Japanese guys wanted their wife to stay home and be a housewife. Ermmmmmm. I didn't have Japanese friends who has married yet but yeaaa. I think it's their lack of daycare or nursery center in Japan which allow this phenomena to happen. I know Japan is a developed country but to have this kinda thing happen there at this generation, I want to see or experience life there myself to double confirm.

Japanese people wouldn't show expressions or feelings and affections. Okay I think this might may be exaggerated and generalized too which I shouldn't do but heyya who cares. Alright here's what I mean. Just like most of the boys have grown up in the environment where they're urged to "be a man" no matter what and not share their feelings or even not allowed to cry because doing that will make you look sissy, Japanese guys are more of like still having the higher status than women kind of being. In Japan, being touche with your family members especially parents are kind of a hard to witness situation. You don't really see Japanese son hug their mum(?) OH I so hope this isn't true cause it kinda sounds sad. But yea I guess that's kind of their beliefs as boys are seen as masculine and non-manja type and man-ish. Those who acted soft might be more of a rare case. Which brings me into my next point.

Uhhhh wait. I think I've pointed this out before in Jap #2. But I'd like to add on is in Malaysia, you can see the extremes of emotions in their faces. When people or friends are happy or sad, their face and tones of speaking will state the obvious. But for me, I think Japanese sometimes will keep it to themselves. I don't mean like not sharing their feelings or something like that but, it's like they don't go extremes or think it's very necessary to show their feelings that much? So okay if you'd want me to show you their level of emotions shown on their faces everytime with a figure here goes.

Here. Hehehe. Okay the red color lines is the Japanese people expression levels while the blue ones are Malaysians. It'd always be more show-ness for Malaysians compare to Japanese.

Man are hard workers, however.. Okay. So here's something I heard too. But I admire them. In Malaysia you might find women has equally or sometimes more leadership skills and often hold high positions for their jobs. While you may find men who are least of what woman here is. I didn't say men in Malaysia are not capable, I said, YOU MAY FIND THEM HERE, in Malaysia. So in Japan, men doesn't care about how much their partner might earn, they just want to be solely capable in winning the bread or making enough money to support the family.They're probably seem as more responsible and the hardworking ones, stressing to make sure every family members will be taken good care of. So yea. I hope I make my point. However, the suspension is actually going back to my previous point where, they would mostly hope their wife stays home and be the home administrator. Which I kinda think it's a little unfair if their partner is well educated and wanted to work in the corporate world or so. I believe there is understanding man who will let their partner goes out to work though, but with the daycare issue, I'm still not sure how the real thing goes...

You can't use ha? when you want someone to repeat something towards Japanese people. I think it's normal for the Chinese culture, or maybe Malaysian's culture to reply a HA? once you didn't heard what the other person says or you wanted them to repeat. But in Japan, I don't know why, YOU JUST CAN'T. Because it's rude to them if you do so. If you want them to repeat the word, either you reply them with Eh? or "mou ikkai" or "mou ichido" which means one more time.

Everything, is just high standard. I mean, that's what you expect in a developed country anyways. People working at the department stores to restaurants that serve you their daily meals, they'll give you a one-hundred percent polite and happy faces when they serve you. Even vending machines(fyi Japan is a vending machine heaven lol), like one of those vending machines at the most random places, such as this:

will work absolutely fine even it's out of nowhere! Like literally every drink options will be available and non-working or drinks unavailable cases are rare yo! Unlike Malaysia, especially UKM, the vending machines here are super annoying in which, some drinks inside, might be out of stock and it'll take forever for somebody to stock it up. Even worst, the vending machines here might experience vandalizing! And talk about the service attitude in Malaysia, le sigh. It might be normal for somebody to be moody and serve you with a smelly face or some bad attitude. I don't know why, but it's very normal here.

Right. Maybe this post might sound a little or a lot of stereotyping but yeah I apologizes if it offended you in some way probably. These are just opinions that I find interesting and would like to talk about and to really experience it first hand so I could KNOW if it's really really true or not.

Pictures first. Since the last two post has been wordy. Very wordy. Hehehe.


Then it's Food Paradise Festival where Rina-san, Yuki-San and Shota-san set up a stall to make Japanese food which is ONIGIRI and OCHAZUKE! Heeeeeeee.

Then it's International Language Festival ;) Thank You Nezu Sensei for helping me wearing this Yukata! I like the blue ones better though but lol blue are often a boy's colour for their Yukatas(?) Didn't take picture with the Happi though T^T 


Korean Food - Gimbap (Korean sushi), Tteokbokki (Spicy Rice Cakes) and Kimchi Pancake. YUMMEH and super cheap yo!

Thanks to Irfan I have fast pace days but AWESOMEEE. 
Love the guitar but sad I have to give it back to him when he returned though :(

Last Sunday I went to Shah Alam for Amigos Club's programme. I felt kinda dragged there but thanks to Shari (Blue hat) I had crazy fun! I thought I'd be freaking afriad of heights with climbing trees and stuff but I pushed on. It's only cause there's no turning back once you climbed up a 5 storey height's tree =.= Had to continue on BUT IT WAS FUN! And somehow I kinda conquered my fear for heights? Hehehe lemme tell you why later.

Sunway Lagoon!

Jenggggggz! So this is why. I actually said to Rina-san let's go once she asked me if I wanted to. Without any hesitation. And normally I'd be afraid of normal roller-coaster too but this time I rode the VUVUZELA. Google up that if you don't know. Haha I think I'm super cool now! Lol thanks to Epy who dared me to go at first. I'm like why not? Type of mood you know since I thought it will be nothing else different compare to Skytrekking. So yea. (Y) However a little disappointing when I found out that guys (more to saying Epy and Yuki-san XP) is afraid of seen-able heights(?) Don't know how to explain but they didn't wanted to go on with the Flying-fox. So urm maybe wrong assumptions but I didn't confirm with them lah. Hehe.

Healthy disgusted looking strawberries but cheap! Been trying to eat healthy since I kinda gained weight but... I can't differentiate when's my stomach's boring or hungry. This sucks.

Bored on the preparation for college dinner. ZZZ. I was glad I slept gao gao and only go there in the afternoon. I thought I wasn't important in the part of preparation and I was kinda right. My job only starts when the real event starts. Eheh talk like I'm the star of the show, but nahh just somebody who stands backstage. But seriously, I was at the backstage for the event the whole time. Like literally.

At least the best part is I got to wear pretty-pretty and take pretty pictures. Haha.

So these were actually bigger events wear there's photo documentation lol and here comes wordy updates. Haha. I was getting busier though and I kinda like it since my past uni life (at least months ago) I think I actually slept through in order to have time passed by faster. These days it just, passes normally and I actually feels like I've done things.

Presentations, assignments, programmes, projects. It's making me busier but I felt good with it. Sort of like, I'm living again. My life is alive again, you get what I meant? Then again there's the downside of it where I didn't have time to get my clothes washed or even kept my room in a clean/ proper order. It's like, I'm living in a huge mess =.= Well sort of. Ok lah. That's enough update for now, gotta get some things done and go to bed yo!

お休みなさい。Goodnight! :)

Jap #2


This post was actually written because... (wait. Did I actually explain myself every time I update my blog?) Coming up with a reason is actually kinda annoying. Lol not coming up like I had to fake the reason but actually explaining why when I don't want to is annoying and really, it's actually unnecessary, right? Gahhh not going to answer that.

There's this differences thing between Malaysia and Japan that I somehow thought that it's quite interesting and I had to say or record it somewhere somehow. And here goes. (Erm did I actually just explain myself? Lol nevermind that.)

- Pauses - Le sigh I've actually went onto other websites for half and hour or so because I just can't really write another post when the one before was published like 5 minutes ago. But now. Yea I'm gonna try since. It's gonna get bright and sunny and I should sleep before the sun rise. (Sleeping when the sun rises, like a vampire/ likewise zombie. How irony.)

Ok so I'm gonna continue but all are going to be said later was based on my perspectives, not according to whose opinion or whatsoever reports or research. Just my opinion.

Japanese people speaks Japanese. Hehehe so blunt lol ok so I actually just knew Japanese people uses Japanese even in big or even some international events. Forgive me but I thought when English was to be known as an international language I thought in events people would adjust naturally? Here in Malaysia many politicians did uses Bahasa Melayu but on most international events they'd change to English! So yeaah. :/ Anyways! I got a little terrified by this fact because I'm so so afraid that I couldn't communicate with them at all but thank God! The couple of Japanese friends that came here to UKM speaks quite fluent Malay! (Better than me I think. Sobs.) And some friends I made recently speaks quite good English too! (Ah but this is because he's mix raced like me) But anyhow I'm glad I'm learning Japanese so at least I know a little now! And definitely will learn moarrrrrrrrr.

Japanese people respect the elderly and has a clearly divided bureaucracy. Erm I actually knew this quite long ago but until now I'm still not very sure how the real situations would be. I saw an article on Japan Times saying that the whole system was like an upside down pyramid diagram which shows the loaaaaaaaaaaaaads of elderly are all on the top part of the upside down pyramid and pressuring the little amount of yonger generations. I don't know if I can cope with this though if I'd to experience that. Other than that, people with a higher status are often highly respected where you can't skip statuses and do anything you want to without their permission or acknowledgement. (Erm confusing? I'm kinda lazy to explain though but whoever understands congrats! Hehehe.)

Japanese people love their toilets and baths. So yeaa. I think it's because of their technologies though. And all of them (I think) bathe with warm water! I wish I can here but... It's just impossible.

Japanese people says shouganai(na) or shikataganai but... Shouganai or shikataganai means something like "nothing can be done" or in Malay it's more to expression such as "biarkanlah/ biasalah/ takpelah." I actually thinks that Malaysians have this shouganai's spirit when something happened to them they just... let it go, you know? They wouldn't be that bothered unlike in western countries where individualism is emphasized. However, when I thought where Japanese people says shouganai(na) or shikataganai almost every time something bad happened, one of my Japanese friend told me Malaysian has the shouganai's spirit where... They can't seem to accept. Here's why in my next point.

Japanese people stressed on quality. Let's take vending machines for an example. If vending machines in Malaysia has no Cola but only Pepsi, Malaysians wouldn't probably have any feelings on this kind of situation. They'd either opt to buy Pepsi, or just go away not buying anything without any opinion at all. But for Japanese people, they'd be kinda stressed out and thinks that why is this happening, why nobody refills the freaking vending machine or why is the machine giving problems? I think in Japan people are used to have good working ethic and everything is always/ have to be in tip-topped condition whereas in Malaysia we don't really expect a lot from our surroundings. Do you think this type of working ethics are one of the reason that we don't really improvise?

Working long hours and getting your job done, is a must. In Malaysia, working hours may start at 8am but workers would arrive at 9am. Tea break + lunch hour may took them 2 hours each. Working hours end at 5pm but they may leave at 4.30pm. In Japan, NOBODY DOES THAT esp when you're newly employed. At least that's what I knew(?) So anyways, daily errands have to be done on that day and working extra hours is NORMAL(must). If you leave early, other employees will think that you're weird, or lazy.

Japanese people doesn't really show their affections/ emotions, especially guys. When I knew Japanese couple are not okay with holding hands in public I'm like. NANDESUKA?! Imagine not hugging or kissing. Lol I mean like on farewells like when you have to send your husband or wife off in the airport when they have job abroad you just don't HUG. T^T This is like a super sad love story for me you know. And one I just knew lately is... Japanese guys tend to show this bold and manly image where they doesn't use words or actions to express their loves, even to family members. I asked them if boys hug their mothers or being 'manja' towards family members they're like NOOOOOOOOOO! They aren't allowed to shout (of course this is very impolite) but not even cry in front of anyone. T^T super duper sad lah. Ok so it's very normal for Malaysian students to miss home and go back home every time it's semester break or whenever they have extra time on hands but the Japanese doesn't feel this way! My Japanese friends were actually shocked when they first knew about how we're always desperate to go back home. GAHHH but it's home and family! How can you resist?!

Japanese people love and respect their own country. I think this is because there's only Japanese in Japan and there's no conflict there. It ain't like here, where we have so many races, religions, languages, culture going on. But I salute on how Japanese people stand for being Japanese. They'd wear kimonos or yukatas like it's the most normal thing ever, speaks Japanese (duh of course) and love their on country (at least somehow it's different like what I experienced here in Malaysia!) So if you're in Malaysia religion (of course) is somehow a sensitive issue where it was mostly the initiators of all conflict. Second, if you'd see any other races other than Malay to wear baju kurungs or other races to wear otherwise it'd be kinda weird! And... Talk about the national language. To those who didn't use Malay as their mother tongue especially among the Chinese, speaking Malay fluently is actually kind of rare. I've learned about Malaysia where it's in the progress of being a "Negara Bangsa" where people would be patriotic and nationalistic towards Malaysia itself but somehow you can see it's getting harder from generation to generation. 

Alright I'm gonna stop here first though, well of course there's more on cultural differences. There are really a lot more to say but the bird's chirping and I don't know if I still wanna write another post update on my recent life or not. Anyways I wanna repeat in saying that all these were my perspectives ok, it's only an opinion so if it actually brings you to great disagreement I'm sorry if it offended you and I'd like to know why. Heh.

Jap #1

See the #1? There is definitely moaaaaaaaaaar coming up on this topic. HEHEHE.

お早う ございます。えーと、今もう朝ですか?ww
Once again I'm not sure if my Japanese sentences were properly structured or does it really make any sense but yea I'm still learning so it's better to use it even though I make mistakes right?

"Language is a tool - you eventually have to use it in order to learn" - As said by Jun from Rachel and Jun's youtube channel. And IT'S TRUE! Recently I've been lacking in practicing it because I've been so busy until last night.

I'm back to business baby! Eheh not really though but I finally got some free time to myself I decided to youtube all night long. LOL part of the reason I do this is because I miss youtubing/blogwalking; I slept for the WHOLE afternoon after Japanese class yesterday (I was sick and had to lay in bed but magically gotten better ever since I woke up); and I ate dinner at 11pm or so? (I couldn't let myself to sleep after eating fried rice and fried eggs to sleep at that hour! I'm already gaining weight and sleeping after that is just. PIG.)

Ok so enough with the life update I'll do it later after this post if my mood for blogging is still there. So anyways. As you can see from the title. I wanna talk about JAPAN. Or being an Weaboos, or some people would call them Hapanese; Japanophile; Wapanese; or even an Otaku. You can search urban dictionary online for the exact definition cause I'm not going to do that Lol but what I'm going to tell you is that all these words that I mentioned actually related to other words such as Fag, Nerd, Geek, Gay, Stupid, Yellow Fever and Hentai (LOL) etc in the synonym list(?)

Why did I suddenly have this sudden interest in knowing more or learn about Japan? You see, I was never a fan of Manga or Anime but yes I do read Manga quite often back in high school (never remembering the names though because majority of them were Shoujo Manga, Crayon ShinChan and Doraemon lol) I didn't watch Japanese dramas (wait does Power Rangers and Ultraman counts?) and only watches a little Anime. It actually started long ago when Kpop wasn't as famous now I brought my first and only Japanese-English dictionary. I read it for a few days, made flash cards but it didn't really last cause I can't use the language itself. Then when Kpop started getting famous, I decided I never did like them after watching a few dramas. I didn't even find Running Man interesting, until now. I do watch some of them but, I just don't get any special feelings from it. Just, neutral. No like, no hate. I kinda like CN-Blue's YongHwa and Tohoshinki's YUNHO though. They're super talented and hot. Haha.

Back to the topic, when I entered University, there's actually this mobilty programme that gave us opportunity to go to foreign country such as Indonesia, Brunei, Germany, Poland and Mexico. But then, I didn't heard about Japan. Then it came to the second semester where I got free time I could sign up for another extra subject to learn, I decided to try German. (WHUT there's no typos there, I first intend to study German because I fell in love with Copenhagen looooooooong ago for being one of the happiest country in the world.) Then the timetable for German classes crashes with my other majors. So I changed to Spanish. OK the night I changed to Spanish my heart was like, very not peaceful. I literally can't sleep and kept feeling that I've made a very wrong decision. So, I get my Laptop, went to the academic online system, dropped Spanish and choose Japanese. YES IT WAS MY THIRD CHOICE. But came to think of it now, I'm glad German's classes crashes my major's schedule, and I can't sleep because I picked Spanish. (I guess I didn't like being normal for choosing Spanish because it's common for people to take Spanish as it's the easiest learning/ widely spoken foreign language other than English)

So maybe in the end I just wanted to learn something that most of the people wouldn't huh. Since you know, I don't wanna learn Korean or it doesn't enticed me that much? Then again the moment I started taking Japanese, I did some homework (very passionately and almost daily) to search about what Japan is like. I even started watching Anime and Japanese Drama, followed vlogs on youtube which tell stories about Japan in the eyes of a foreign! So after all these efforts, surprisingly my interest in Japan has getting more intense lol but no I don't think I'm at the Otaku stage now. Just probably some culture-diverse-curiosity going on but hey! Japan is amazing and very special for me (maybe it's my first time but the feelings growing so yea!) so that's why!

And since I do like learning about cultural differences (as an Anthropology and Sociology student I should right? Lol excuse much ahaha) and being new to Japanese Culture I'd say getting more information about the differences never cease to let me feel like "WOAH, REALLY?" It's like, everything's super duper fresh and unique, in a cute way! (Japan emphasizes CUTE fyi)

Then the next thing is. 六月に東京へ行きます!Hehehehe. Oh and I made a couple of Japanese friends who taught me things about Japan first hand!

OH YAH! And all these beauty bloggers I've followed ever since I own a blog! There's Xiaxue, Cheeserland, Fourfeetnine and QiuQiu. Especially Cheeserland. Her post was everything Japan and they're like those initiators who made me indirectly get in touch with Japan infos almost every day.

So I think I'm gonna stop here for explaining WHY haha. It's getting a little long and boring so yea I think all these blabbery would answer that one short question in bold.

Why the sudden change?

Hehehe. So why I decided to change? Duh of course is behtahan the old blog layout lah. So many colours I sometime see also bo xim ki. So I got back to my original banner back for this blog. (Refer to top lolol.) And back to errr... Pink? Haha obviously pink is forever the new black. And white seems cleaner what. So pink and white it is! (This is totally unrelated with the sudden Japan-craze or sakura thing) It was more of, back to what I'm most familiar with and enjoyed the most. (To be frank I used this banner for the longest time and never get fed up with its looks.)

Enough explaination. Hehe.

So here's a brief update. I lost 300+ worth of belongings. Kinda more like being robbed? Okay the details I'm gonna keep private lol incase if (hopefully not) this gets more complicated.


My HTC one X. I actually didn't see this coming. Who would expect a smartphone isn't a year old to cause you tech troubles? And it's HTC! I'm totally not expecting this from a only-producing-phone brand/company. Soooooo disappointed. With me of course for over-looking and with the brand itself. I thought HTC will be giving least trouble compare to Samsung or Sony but eventually it's giving me a headache now. It just comes so suddenly. And the problem wasn't like small matter but big one. It was actually quite a pain because data roaming kinda consume the battery fast enough (then again this with power bank will solve) but now the battery literally have problem. Last night before sleeping I checked it with 4 percent battery level and with one night of charging the battery level rose only 1 percent! One bloody percent I tell you. How can not be geram with that?

Aduh my English. Like super Malaysian-English. I don't like this change lah so annoying but I couldn't really get myself to write properly now.

Anyways with the large loss this month, I'm glad I have the shouganai spirit(?) Eheheh self-comforting much lol. But what can I do? Felt guilty everytime I talk to mum about the probs I face because mostly will involve you-know-what (money? or maybe you don't) and less about what I've achieved here in Uni. To be honest. I'm not doing well here. I don't see self-improvement and only came to realization just recently. Will try my best though but slow and steady. Okay? Start of first by having the courage to dream big and also the DETERMINATION to last because that's what I lack the most.

Ahhhhhhh. This is somewhat not a brief post anymore huh. How I wish the BM essay I'm working on right now is this easy to write. But seriously. Why when the sudden language change will drag the progress of finishing the writing itself? It takes more time than I could imagine. BUT I SHALL NAT GIVUP YO.

Change is a pain in the ass but everything that start from scratch sure is like that one. (Ohdear deep Malaysian genki flowing in my blood lol)

That's all for now though. Many to say but I too hungry to continue. Oyasumi!
