Lah, K800i, Hottest Male Bloggers and Hottest Female Bloggers

What is lah?

Chris Merriman asked what is ‘lah’ that we use so often. Chris, I am so pleased you ask. ‘lah’ is an expression that we love to use to emphasise things. For example, if we want to urge someone to do something for us like ‘come on, let’s go, we just say, “Come lah!” So, it is just a nice addition to many things to make our English more Malaysians. Anyone can give a better explanation of ‘lah’ to Chris?



Jeng, jeng, jeng….my new phone to replace the SE630 dinosaur I had. Initially, a few friends recommended it but I said the K800i is like grandpa’s phone. (that’s the message I got on SMS from Terence “Say ugly. All you say lah.”) But when I got it, it is so cun, man. Great pics from the Sony Cybershot camera. Nice radio and music. Beautiful recordings. Good keypad for SMS. 3G. And it is not too menonjol mata. I saw the W880 which is orange and black. So slim and so nice but dare not get it ‘cos I don’t want to risk getting robbed over a phone. BTW, those of you with young children, don’t let them carry handphones ‘cos snatch thieves hang around the schools areas to snatch them. Happens all the time at the backlane of St. Xavier. Cost – Only RM1,4++.

Anyway….the phone is a result of the ‘teh’ power. My darling atm just brought it home two evenings ago. Heh, no need to ask wan, just ‘teh’ a bit oni. Ish, should have made ‘teh-kau’ and I could have a Nokia N95 or a Dopod.


I have put a poll at the sidebar. Kawan-kawan sekalian, lengluis semua, go vote as many times as you like. This one is Barisan mia kind of voting. LOL It runs for a week and by the end of the polling, I will give one t-shirt each to the top three. I have made the payment, including postage with So, all the winner needs to do is to send Yvonne the size, colour and their address. Good luck guys!

So, did I confuse you all with too many titles?

1) What is ‘lah’
2) Say my phone nice or not?
3) Vote for three hottest male bloggers

  1. No. I should also participate in the hottest female bloggers you know. Not gender mistake. Just that lately I also quite emo – whereby they can applies to ladies. Secondly, i spread lies and last I am snaking all the time. meaning jobless lor.


  2. And yeah, I still believe that Christianity is a religion which teaches one to worship a half-naked, bleeding Roman criminal swinging from a cross.

    Do you deny that?

  3. aunty.. if u have long nails.. beware of stratching the keypad. also, beware of weird characters. also beware of stratching the camera cover. also beware that the camera cover can easily become loose, also, if u’re searching for contacts that start with A (eg: anne, etc) you’ll need to scroll down.

    got a lot of bewares for this phone. i have one. πŸ˜€

  4. cincau – Kenot…tobelerone all mine. Go buy yr own. But tks for the bewares. Lucky my nails short cos I need to dig my eyes for the contacts lenses.

    menj – LOL, I took a big circle around and only asked if Boss Lepton got popcorn and coke to accompany the gun powder smell. I don’t know how this post links to yours. But heck, I don’t care what you said about my Lord, the God. I am seasoned to it. He knows how to take care of Himself, thank you very much (to all the defenders I mean). I think it is pretty cool be half naked, a bad boy criminal and yet, still remains my personal Saviour.

    frostier – LOL, nuffnang is hiring. java/php?

    splashmilk banner dem cun!

  5. I’d like it better if it’s RED. I wanna change my phone’s casing to RED!!!! iWant iWant!!! RED RED RED!!! And hoh…. i teh-ed for the N95…………….. sigh………. no luck πŸ™

    Looks like if iWant the N95, PPP gotta sponsor loh….

  6. I believe the word lah is derived from arabic. In arabic, lah/la means no. Muslims use the phrase, “la illaha illallah”. When we say it out loud, the first word is stressed to give an emphasis to the word no.

    In the course of time, the phrase is picked up by asians particularly in malaysia and singapore and shortened to just a lah. We’d hear phrases from previous generations, like, “la budak ni! Degil betul!” from a parent chiding their kids for example.

    Later with due popularity of the word, it was only time when its picked up by others because of the versatility and colourful emphasis of the meaning.

  7. 1) What is Γ’β‚¬ΛœlahÒ€ℒ: In Malaysia, just put a ‘lah’ at the end of every sentence. JUST DO IT lah. Doesnt matter where the word came from LAH.
    2) Say my phone nice or not?: Same answer LAH, “Say ugly? All you say LAH.
    3) Vote for three hottest male bloggers: Ah Pek sure win LAH. Trust me LAH.
    4) Check out hottest female bloggers: No need LAH. You already the hottest LAH.

    Chris, get it? If you are in Malaysia lah, just use it all the time lah. Dont worry lah. Just be happy lah. You just wont go wrong lah. Cheers.
