Today is a public holiday here in Malaysia in celebration of the Birthday of Prophet Mohammad. All schools, banks and businesses are closed today. The malls will be crowded today what with people shopping for the upcoming Chinese New Year. Food outlets will be packed too as Malaysians take the opportunity to eat out during public holidays and weekends.
Let's take it easy here too with a couple of jokes. Both came in the mail so source is unknown. See if you understand this one. Male chauvinists will love this..
And this one is for Retirees. Not giving you ideas or anything. I trust you will use your judgment, of course.
How to Keep Busy When Retired...
Working people frequently ask us, as a retired couple, what we do to make our days interesting.
Well, the other day my wife and I went into town and went into a shop. We were only in there for about five minutes.
When we came out, there was a policeman writing out a parking ticket. We went up to him and said, 'Come on sir, how about giving a pensioner a break?'
He ignored us and continued writing the ticket. So I called him a fascist bastard. He glared at me and started writing another ticket for having worn tyres. So my wife called him a total pillock. He finished the second ticket and put it on the windscreen with the first. Then he started writing a third ticket.
We continued to call him every name under the sun, and he just kept writingthose tickets...
This went on for about 20 minutes, and then our bus arrived.
There's always something fun to do as a pensioner...
Happy holiday, fellow Malaysians!
