ORANG SABAH STYLE - Oppa Gangnam Style Parody

Gangnam Style is a 2012 K-pop single by the South Korean rapper Psy. It has led to various user generated parodies and reaction videos from all over the world. Gangnam Style is spreading like wildfire and millions around the globe have become obsessed.

Gangnam Style is widely praised for its humor, catchy rhythm as well as Psy’s unusual dance moves that have introduced many people to K-pop. First released on July 15, 2012, it entered the Gaon Chart singles chart at number one upon release.

I have read about the phenomena of the Oppa Gangnam style Parody but just brush it out as another music style of the music industry especially the younger generation style of music. It was once again triggering my curiosity of the music when I read in the facebook that the Gangnam style parody has reached the shore of Sabah.

The song titled ORANG SABAH STYLE (Oppa Gangnam Style Parody). The song is in Hakka (Chinese) but there is English translation at the bottom of the video unless you are blind as opposed to some comments about the video.

The song is about humor as well as a way to introduce Sabah as a tourism destination where the songs mentioned about the places to visit, the good food and of course the beautiful ladies of Sabah. I think it is much better to hear the song yourself although it is a Chinese song but song that was done Sabah Style gangnam version.

Some of the lyrics of the Orang Sabah style I managed to understand are as follows;

Sabah Orang (Ulang ..) style
Many people say that Sabah has many beautiful girls
Do you really know how big Sabah really is?
From Kudat to Tawau, there are many beautiful girls but most of the girls have come to Kota Kinabalu.

On the way … (under wear .. hahah) Sabah love to say
When they are still at home, they still say On the way
When they are in Toilet, they say on the way
Coming almost there ..

Come to Sabah, wanna try the seafood. Go to Island and mount kinabalu as well.
Not only beautiful girls but we also have Urang utan
And also gua ..shemale and many beautiful girls.

Other than sightseeing, there are also food delights
Steam and fried dumpling and tan gong mee (Sandakan food) Tuaran mee and konlon mee
Baby just wanna eat Sang Nyuk Mian, You know what I am saying.
Sexy lady .. Ulang Sabah Style

Orang Sabah Style wish all Malaysian fellows
Happy National day, regardless of west or East Malaysia
We are one family
Happy national day.

When I watched the video yesterday it had only 28,000 hits but this morning it has already hits 274,000 and counting. As a Sabahan style of Gangnam and was just publish in Youtube since 27 August 2012 I do not see why it cannot reached 300,000 by tomorrow morning.

Way to go Orang Sabah style we support you.

After eating Filipino Buko (Buco) salad, I remembered that I did make it last time after using the recipe I read few years back. I handwritten copied the simple menu and went to buy the necessary ingredient for making it.

I had already bought the tinned fruit salad, daily milk and few other things except for the young coconut. I went to Bukit Padang to buy the young coconut as the stall that I usually bought my young coconut before was out of stock due to the Hariraya holidays.

Me   :   Do you have thick young coconut but not hard coconut flesh?

Stall owner   : I think I have 3 coconuts left like what you wanted.

Me   :   Ok I’ll take it.

Stall owner   : That should be RM9.00.

I paid my coconuts and drive out of the parking bay towards the roundabout and bump I felt as I was hitting something. I looked at my rear mirror and saw the car behind me too close to my bumper and realized that I was hit from behind. I get out of my car and a young guy who was driving the car behind me came out of his car also. Before I could see the damage, the guy was clasping his hand, making a Japanese bow and asking for forgiveness.

Guy   :   I am sorry, forgive me. Nothing was broken or dented.

I checked my car and nothing was broken and smile to the guy as a sign of forgiving him. I was also relieved that I didn’t drive my other car. I was also happy that nothing happened as it would have been troublesome to deal with accident especially to a very arrogant person as I experience before. The young guy did have a huge smile and relieved.

In spite of the small matter, I made my Buko or Buco salad before I went for the wedding reception dinner but nearly drench myself because of the heavy rain.

I did not follow exactly the amount of the ingredient and it was perfect and I was tempted to increase the amount of daily milk cream/whipping cream or condense milk as it was also nice with less milk. It is really up to the individuals of how sweet you want their Buko salad tastes.

After putting it in the freezer overnight, it was really delicious when eaten on a hot day.

BALUT - Filipino Favourite

On the 2nd day of Hari raya I went to town for my lunch instead of visiting a friend who text me to come to his house on the second day of Hari raya. I went to Beverly Hill town ship at Jalan Bundusan and most of the restaurant was closed except for a few. I was at the Melimewa supermarket undecided whether to eat at home or eating fast food. I was lazy to cook and decided to look for a restaurant which was opened.

I was told by my nephew (having Filipino blood from his father) that they had tried a Filipino dishes at one of the restaurant around Beverly Hill and recommended me to try it. The restaurant was just beside Melimewa supermarket and I decided to have lunch there.

As I entered the restaurant a woman greeted me in English with thick Filipino accent.

Woman   : Welcome to Tambayan restaurant. Can I help you?

The name of the restaurant was Tambayan but I forget to ask the meaning of it. There were rays of already made dishes and I decided to pick three dishes which look familiar to me. I ordered Egg Plant omelet, Fried fish and Dice Cow’s stomach stew. I ordered Buko salad for my dessert and lemon iced tea for my drink.

I didn’t like the dishes that I picked at all because the fish still had the scales on, the stew was still have the strong smell and I ate eggplant only discarding the omelet. The Buko salad was good, a bit sweet but regrettably I didn’t taste the young coconut flesh. I happened to make this salad when I saw it posted by some blogger which is so simple to prepare and thought that it was the same. The fried fish was not really bad but having the scales in my mouth was something that was alien to me and it was also topped with somewhat like omelet also. I remembered the ‘ikan terubuk’ or milkfish that was fried with the scales still on as suggested by a Sarawakian friend and it was crispy and nice to eat.

When I asked for the bill, it was a whooping RM32.00 for one person lunch which was high compared to the taste and presentation. As I was looking around the restaurant I saw a sign of Balut sold for RM5.00 each. I was contemplating of buying one and wanting somebody to really eating it in front of me with the duck egg in the process of changing to a chic already. I cannot imagine how the taste would be like.

It is not the last of my visit to Filipino cuisines as I want to try the crispy pig knuckles on my next visit to a Filipino restaurant. Any one likes to recommend a good Filipino dish?

Aboi - Serve You Right

A beautiful lady was standing in a bus with a sleeveless skin-tight dress and there was a tattooed rose flower on her arm. A man by the name of Aboi was standing beside her and talks to her.

Aboi   :  Your flower is very beautiful; can I kiss your tattooed rose flower?

The lady did not responded to Aboi but she relented after being asked again and again.

Lady   : Before you can kiss my rose, you should kiss the roots first.

After she told Aboi she rose up her arm and shows him her hairy armpit.

Spider Man

Attending a therapy session occupies my morning activities and in the afternoon would be my daily jog if time permits. It has been a month that I had been attending such session and it was really interesting and at times met new friends and meeting old friends. The therapy centre will close for 2 weeks for the hariraya holidays to let the staff to celebrate the holiday with their families.

Yesterday there was a puzzle game (Teka-teki) to make the therapy merrier and also because of the holiday mood by the end of the week. We were divided into 2 groups and trying to post and answering the puzzles that the opponent presented.

 There were a couple of puzzles that came out from the 2 groups but the most interesting puzzle that I heard was from a very young man.

Young man   :   Apa nama binatang yang disebut 3 kali?

There were many answers that were given but nobody was able to answer puzzle and the answer was then revealed.

Young man   :   Labah-labah lah bha!
(Labah -1, Labah-2, lah bha-3)

It was a big hit and who cares if it was illogical that made every body laughing.

Rebook, Nike or AIDS

Seorang gadis yang bersuamikan pemain basketball sedang berdebar-debar menantikan malam pertama setelah pesta pernikahannya. Selepas pesta selesai mereka pun masuk bilik. Si suami terus membuka seluruh pakaiannya. Apabila bajunya terbuka,si isteri melihat sebuah tatoo bertuliskan "Reebok" di dada suaminya.

Isteri   :   Abang ada Kasut Reebok.

Abang   : Iya Reebok. 

Si suami pun menerangkan bahawa tatoo tersebut dibuat sewaktu ia menjalani kontrak sebagai model iklan produk tersebut. Tiba-tiba si suami membuka seluar panjangnya, maka terlihat satu lagi tatoo lambang "Nike" di pahanya.

Isteri   :   Ada Nike lagi Abang.

Si suami pun menjelaskan hal yang sama kepada isterinya. Akhirnya setelah semuanya terbuka, Si isteri melihat tatoo bertuliskan "AIDS" pada 'anu' si suami.Dengan ketakutan si isteri menanyakan tatoo tersebut.

Isteri   :   Abang ada AIDS?

Namun dengan tenangnya si suami menjawab.

Abang   :   Sayang, tulisan itu bukan bererti Abang ada AIDS. Teruslah pegang nanti kau akan tahu.

Setelah si anunya tegang dan memanjang maka tulisan AIDS menjadi 'ADIDAS'...

Isteri   :   Bikin suspen lah Abang ni ........

Ini Kali Lah

Oh .. My English ....

Kalau anda seorang pengemar Facebook dan mempunyai akaun, sudah pasti tahu dengan game yang boleh dimain. Tapi untuk seorang yang tak mengemari game bermakna tak langsung pun suka bermain terutamanya dalam facebook ini.

Apa yang saya ceritakan adalah permintaan atau request daripada kawan-kawan facebook untuk game berkenaan.Oleh kerana saya tidak suka maka saya selalu saja akan 'remove' saja request tersebut kerana malas untuk blocked game tersebut sebab kena block satu persatu.

Kebelakangan ini macam menjadi-jadi pula request saya terima jika saya removed request tersebut dan ia akan membuatkan saya stressful melihat request tersebut. Maka dengan itu saya ada juga lah post meminta jangan minta request untuk game daripada kawan-kawan FB.

"No more Game Request Please"

Makin juga banyak request diterima maka dengan itu saya ambil masa khas untuk blocked semua game yang saya ingat pernah di request. Setakat ini memang kurang sudah game request yang saya terima.

Bah siapa-siapa yang ada minta request game maaf sajalah saya sudah mula memblock.

"Lain Kali lah .......

Do You Know?

Do you know that the minimum fee to go to the toilet in Kota Kinabalu is 0.30 sen and if you need toilet paper that would be .050 sen? I was at the Suria shopping Mall when I need to use the toilet urgently after having heavy breakfast. I saw the the sign to pay 0.30 sen and grab myself the toilet paper not for wiping away my dump but just to dry my bottom with the toilet paper after spraying myself. I found out that using spray is the most cleanness to use as it will wipe away all residue that is present.

Toilet Lady   :   The toilet paper cost .0.20 sen. You have to pay 0.50 sen.

Dv   :  I thought it include the toilet paper. Why so expensive to dump here?

Toilet Lady   : All other shopping complex charging the same lah.

I don't really need the toilet paper but just in case if the water spray head was gone, the hose burst or there was no water. Luckily I had the toilet paper because the spray head was nowhere to be seen.


Do you know that when you missed your morning breakfast you eat anything when you get hungry? I rarely missed my morning breakfast but yesterday after attending my therapy, I went to the drive-in payment for my electricity bill. I went to Suria shopping mall for another bill to pay and to sort my mobile roaming service. My roaming service was not available when I went for my tour to Taiwan recently and depended on my facebook to get in touch with family members.

I was really hungry and went to the nearest fast food outlet and landed myself to Kenny Rogers Roasters and ordered whatever nice to look at on the menu lists. It was the Kenny's quarter meal which consists of quarter chicken, salad, rice, mix fruits and pandan muffin. The side dish was mushroom creamy soup and my favorite drink was cold tea lemon. It wasn't the type of food that I like but once you are hungry anything can do.

My verdict of the food I ate.....


Do you know that Celcom customer service centre is called BLUECUBE now? I was looking for the Celcom Logo at Suria shopping complex but missed it. After giving up I look for the location notice board at the entrance of the shopping mall but there was none. I saw the security guard and approached them.

Dv   :   Where is the Celcom customer service?

Security   :   Lower level (basement)

I went to the lower level but still couldn't find it. Desperately I asked the Metro jaya sales assistant and told me to look for the bluecube.

Do you know that the customer services of Bluecube will approached you first hand asking what type of services you needed. It was a good service but the time taken to process your dealings need to be shorten.

Do you know that I might be bluffing ......
