One thing they have in common.
They jammed up the road, causing me a blardy 20 minutes stuck with them, when usually it takes 2 minutes.
They are losers who could better spend their time elsewhere.
(They are losers not because they are poor, please don’t misunderstand. You will know why later.)
Let me tell you the conversation I had with my #3 (8 yrs old) while #2 was busy snapping these photos for me. He even wanted me to open the sunroof of my Naza Ria so that he can have better angles! (I wouldn’t dare to risk my life getting bashed.)
5xmom – *spewing Hokkien words* What la you guys, go home la. Go and spend with your grandchildren, children, wife, mistress whatever. Go throw you money to more deserving places. Go donate it or give to beggars la. Why la you all so stupid! RM6 for parking only!!!
(Isn’t my #2 so cleber? He even snapped one apek with a forlorn look holding on to his wallet.)
#3 son – Mommy, where got stupid? They come here to win money mah. Win a lot, a lot, then they mah can go home and buy nice things for their chewren lor…..
#2 son – You stupid or what? (Rolling eyes at younger brother. #2 is the sensible guy.)
5xmom – Dey, you see these apeks? Do you know how old they are? They had been coming here every Friday, Saturday and Sunday plus whatever race days in Hongkong and Singapore. They had been gambling all their lives. Do they look like they are happy, rich men? Remember OI!!!!! no one get rich by gambling, ok? These poor apeks probably have children and wives at home who do not have enough money to buy school books, clothes, nice food and everything. Yet they are throwing their money away betting on horses running. Now you geddit? Shouldn’t they be taking their wives and kids and grandkids to the park or something rather than coming here? Jamming up my shortcut to home. Wasting 20 minutes of my time and who knows….people may think that I am part of the crowd going to the race course. *continue with Hokkien vocab*
My wish – Please move the Penang Turf Club far away from my island. Build it next to the area where they rear pigs. Let it stinks so much, no one wants to go to see racing anymore. And those who still stubborn want to go, let them contract SARS, JE or Nipah, whatever. Horses are good as studs only. Not for poor old people to waste money on.
(I know of some people who bet too much, got so poor, they had to sell their properties/businesses, causing the family to suffer. So, I am very pissed when I see these guys heading to the race course.)
