Selangor full lockdown letsgooooo


TrixEnder

They announced already?


friedchicken_legs

They're mulling it


uwant_sumfuk

I’ve finally made up my mind to quit my shitty job in my shitty workplace. I initially thought about holding on a bit longer but what happened today was the last straw and I’ll be glad to see the backs of the shitty management


TrixEnder

What happened that was the last straw?


srystel_

\[There aren't picture since it's not allowed in thread\] If you somehow missed the event happening right now, I'll provide a Wikipedia since I'm a lazy boy and don't want to explain it. Israeli-Palestine conflict https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israeli%E2%80%93Palestinian\_conflict What's your guys opinion on the reaction of Malaysian regarding the Palestine-Israeli conflict? Whether it's social media or real day-to-day encounter. Whether I think Malaysian is right and wrong (my opinions). The reaction, As a Muslim myself, I would probably need to focus more attention on the Israeli and Palestinian conflict, I only realize seeing the #SavePalestine on Twitter. From what I know, Israeli requested to evict the Palestine in Sheikh Jarrah after the decisions of the Israeli Supreme Court trial. The inhabitants was evicted and the house were squatted by illegal inhabitant if referring to international laws. Then, the Palestinian protest around the city of Jerusalem (The Muslim Quarter) peacefully and only using protest sign. There were also report of Palestinian throwing rocks at the Israeli Police? The police respond was very unnecessary with rubber bullet and tear gas. Why were they attacking a group of people using rocks that probably won't hurt officer with protection? Isn't a police officer equipped with the necessary gear to protect itself? This ignited the conflict that led to Hamas to launch rockets at Israeli. Yet again, Israeli defense system is very equipped and sophisticated that the chances of rocket hitting Israeli is small. The Israeli responded by launching missiles to HAMAS headquarter (I think it's fair), but they also kill innocent civilian that also included children and women. Whether this is deliberately done or inadvertently is anyone guess. Then HAMAS also launch it's own rocket on the Tech Capital of Israeli, Tel Aviv which is packed with suburban housing that innocent civilian live in. Yet again, most of the rocket were intercepted but some do hit houses and kill civilians. The causalities are low since they are protective bunker for civilian to use (props to israel for that one). The less civilian loses are the most important for me, if both military want to fuck each other, then let it be. r/malaysia \- The reaction of Palestine-Israeli conflict in Malaysia. r/malaysia \- The reaction of Palestine-Israeli conflict in Malaysia. r/malaysia \- The reaction of Palestine-Israeli conflict in Malaysia. Reaction Although I'm spent most of my time on twitter, I realize that Instagram also have it's own reaction. I follow some football pages, cooking pages and some conspiracy pages that I used to debunk awhile back. I'm so proud that Malaysians stand for the right of Palestine amid the oppression by Israeli authority, but it's very concerning for me that these post have an anti-sematic, homophobic, conspiracy etc. r/malaysia \- The reaction of Palestine-Israeli conflict in Malaysia. Picture 1 r/malaysia \- The reaction of Palestine-Israeli conflict in Malaysia. Picture 2 r/malaysia \- The reaction of Palestine-Israeli conflict in Malaysia. Picture 3 I think it's quite dangerous on how people believe the United Nation that are formed to unsure the peace and stability of society is somehow created by Jews? Isn't it racist to point at a race to blame for all the world disaster? I understand that United Nation is already a shithole as itself a useless organization. Peace legislation to support and giving aid to Palestine regularly vetoed by United States. Like yes they are useless, but you can't really blame at a race for the sole reason that they are apart of the conflict, it's nonsense. Then, the second picture, this is plainly racism that primarily target Jews to die from the surface of the earth. Somehow that Hitler action is reasonable and should be continued by the world. This is visibly wrong but part of our society still believe in it. The third picture, is somehow validating the horrible event of WW2, the holocausts. Most of my friend who actually who believe in the validation of holocausts, realize that it's super horrible and bad when explained neutrally by me, favoring not the Nazis nor Jews. Why innocent child with the same childhood as us should be poisoned to death? Why women who are pregnant with the children they love killed or taken away? Why lives need to ended so early, imagine what a person can do, they may cure cancer, climate change and technologies. It's horrible to hear that these opinion are being though as normal. I know these kind of Ustaz, they are nice person personally. But the things that they believe in are such a fucking nonsense. I think when debating the issue, we should stand in a neutral place. The discussion aren't about the statistic but rather the human effect on both sides. Fine, maybe Israeli lose less than Palestinian, Palestinian die more than Israeli, but those are just word. If you put them side to side, they are human not number. I really hope for peace between them and somehow as society move forward. Conflict are inevitable but civilian casualties should be avoided as much as possible.


lordthunderfuck

what makes it worth it to buy an apple watch?


xelM1

The extension and addition of features of your existing iPhone like answering calls, remote control, replying messages, authenticate logins etc. I speak from my experience of using Apple Watch Series 3 that I bought for RM849 after the reduction in 2019 and paired it with a much older iPhone 8 Plus bought at launch in 2017. Honestly, I don’t feel like using outdated older techs in 2021 despite both the watch and the iPhone were from 2017. Through Airplay 2, handoff feature and Shortcuts, I just kept adding new devices to the ecosystem eg. a smart TV from Samsung and Sonos One wifi speaker in 2020, another 2x Sonos One SLs in 2021 and recently an iPad. These work together like magic.


darrenleesl

To be honest, ever since I’ve got an Apple Watch I’ve had mild anxiety with the notifications beeping my wrist lol. The watch faces are cool and all but if you’re not into the fitness features and you have your phone with you all the time, it’s pretty much redundant.


xelM1

Go through the notification settings on your Watch app. Just untick the apps that aren’t essential to you to receive the unnecessary notifications. I went through the same setting on my iPhone and I gotta say life is so much better after I turned off all notifications from social media apps. Made this [handy Shortcuts](https://www.icloud.com/shortcuts/cafec79f370a4cadb142e78e45835245) to quickly access notifications setting whenever I’m in the zone of commenting on Reddit or swiping for dates.


darrenleesl

I have done the same then realized it’s just a digital watch hahah. But I do admit the integration with Apple products and services is pretty good. For example, if I want to reduce the volume or switch songs on my phone that’s connected to a Bluetooth speaker/AirPods, I can just use my Apple watch to control it. Way less clunky than reaching for my phone. Depends on your needs I guess.


ezkailez

I don't own an apple watch but yeah the vibrating can be a little much. I used to wear them 24/7 except for charging so i know when i received a notification. Then I'm sick of responding to people in general, so i don't wear them in my house. When i commute i still wear them as it's incredibly useful to know that someone message you


dankbuckeyes

For me it’s the sleep tracker. My day will be like shit if I don’t get enough sleep and apple watch helps me to keep track of my sleeping schedule

Exotic-Ad-6885

Frontliners aside, it depends on where you are. Rural areas like up north, 65+ yr olds are getting their second dose now (those that I know personally). While in KL, I know some 70 yr olds who just got their appt for first dose.


a_HerculePoirot_fan

My mum's above 60 and her status is stuck at the same stage too. Meanwhile, I'm desperate to get vaccinated, but don't think it's right to sign up for AZ since the government did say that all teachers will be vaccinated in the second stage. Don't know when that would happen tho.


thenooneconundrum

My mum’s above 60 and it’s still stuck on assessment. Mine is as well.


dahteabagger

Me me. Apply next round for Astra and you should be updated to receive your dosage


leonfook

Only for 60+, please don't take away vulnerable individuals chances to speed up their vaccination, thank you.

Anyone that deserves to be on the Malaysian Edition of TIME Magazine’s Person of the Year if at all exists, that person would be Mamak. After breaking down for the whole day, my body decided that I should get out from the bed, move on, shower and get food at 9:30PM. I arrived precisely at 10:00PM at my local Mamak, checked in at 10:01PM and asked for Nasi Lemak, paid for it and left the premise at 10:04PM in amazement of how the establishments have somewhat become one of my main sources of nourishment. I, for one, am grateful to be where I am, right at this very moment 🙏🏻

Anyone knows how to make a pseudocode or database? Completely lost on this :')

Pseudo code is just like English essay but in code form. Database depends on what you’re designing.

ise311

What's the rationale of giving rm150 e-wallet to 18-20 years old? Half of them are given money from parents and are not tax-payers. Should be better to give to adults who have more committments, house loans etc.


JeremiahE1999

i assume adults gets BPR, ebelia is for young ones to directly pump into economy (non essential business) other than BPR which is used for liabilities and essentials having both is good, helps a range of businesses to survive


lokemon_35

For them to spend it, preferably on local businesses


ise311

So why not give to adults instead? Adults don't spend?


squirrel_with_a_nut

18 years old is by definition an adult.


LindenZin

you're getting downvoted but honestly i dont see the rationale also. rm150 is groceries for 1 or 2 weeks for an entire family. the only way it makes sense is that its for students who are currently not living with parents.


xaladin

maybe undi18 will go through.


radminator

More like bribe for undi18 not happening


xaladin

True dat.


lokemon_35

I am non-bumi with some mini income and i'm looking to invest maybe a couple thousands. I feel like I'm getting cheated out keeping my cash in the bank, cuz their FD rate lower than the floor. Got anywhere can stash cash apart from ASN? I need to work and study, so need something like ASB or ASN


leonfook

Low risk: Stashaway Simple High Risk: buy Crypto with Luno


LindenZin

have you heard of index funds? you can do some research and buy them through fundsupermart.com.my.


darrenleesl

I second this. Markets are ‘soft’ now. Good time to load up a bit on index funds. Especially since you’re not gonna be using the money in the near term it seems like.


roti-kenai

I was looking through their FAQ, are their fees not expensive at 1.5%? Or is that just for their managed portfolio?


LindenZin

1.5% is on the high side but its also lower when compared to bank offerings. And yea, you can get them during promos. They drop to 0.5% sometimes.


roti-kenai

Definitely will be on the look out for that! Btw, I’m curious about how you do your research on which funds to pick? FSM seems to have a lot of options.


LindenZin

Im a conservative investor so i follow the 40 40 20 investment strategy. Essentially split your investment to 40% global 40% US and 20% bonds. The idea is the world market grows about 6% to 8% yearly on average. So if you put money into funds tracking the world market, your returns would be about 6 to 8 percent if there isnt a recession. Its a passive investment concept. As for what individual funds i just read the summary paper in what specific companies the fund tracks. So i have money in the top performing global companies minus US, top performing companies in the US and some money in local bonds divided in a 40/40/20 split. Assuming you are starting out young i suggest focusing on US first. For example my top performing fund is one that track the top tech companies in the US, it was my 1st choice of funds starting out and the best decision ive made finance wise.


roti-kenai

Oh that’s a good strategy - and one I wish I started off with! My portfolio is unfortunately very US tech heavy and while it has grown over the years, the pull back this year wiped out a lot of my gains. This made me want to diversify into different industries and countries- so it seems like ETFs or Index Fund might be one way for me to gain that exposure! I’m also personally looking for Malaysian dividend stocks as I mainly have only US growth stocks, I saw that FSM has that as well. Thank you for your recommendation as well as explanation!


LindenZin

Well, this year wiped a lot of gains across all industries so not much to console you there. At least its starting to recover. ​ I had some Malaysian stock as well but i exited within 3 years as they were underperforming. But dont take my word for it, make your own choices!


darrenleesl

I think what u/LindenZin was hinting at are the funds [here](https://www.fsmone.com.my/funds/tools/fund-selector). Basically, they're index funds (issued by companies) with exposures to multiple companies or geographical regions. Since you're just chilling and not in a rush for the money, general advice is to invest into ETFs/funds and let the money grow for a bit (3-5 years maybe). Long-term, most funds still come out in the green. I recommend using the link above and sorting by 10Y returns. Decent indicator of how the fund is doing throughout the last couple of years. In terms of the sales charges.... look to get into these funds when there's promotions. New users also get like a certain % off for your first few days if I recall. Another option would be to just buy funds like QQQ, VTI, VOO and others, But these are not readily available to Malaysians so you'd have to use an overseas broker like eToro, Interactive Brokers, etc. Can check out more on r/MalaysianPF :)


roti-kenai

Thank you for this information! u/LindenZin ‘s comment caught my interest as I’m looking to diversify into the Malaysian market! Will keep an eye out for whenever they are having promos. For the US market, I prefer picking my own stocks, but the ETFs you mentioned are definitely good options! Although, I’ve personally been hedging with SQQQ just for the short term heh. Also, second checking out r/MalaysianPF


winleskey

I was waiting for my food and 4 policemen came to me and checked my phone and car. At first they ask me to show them my photo album, then 1 police immediately took the phone off my hand and start digging. They checked my email, whatsapp, photos and browser history. Thank god I had nothing to hide. But are they allow to check our phone?


friedchicken_legs

This is horrifying


hatstraw27

What the hell even the browsing history whatsapp and the email. This is awfully seems like breach of privacy This article goes into further detail ob how the police has no right to inspect phones of public (https://soyacincau.com/2019/11/20/royal-malaysia-police-check-your-phone/)


LindenZin

In malaysia you are obligated to hand over your phone to an inspector rank or above police officer and he must present you with sufficient reason, you behaved suspiciously, or found to be related to ongoing investigation. Else you should have politely refused him. If he insists, take his badge number and inform him you will be making a formal complain.


winleskey

I was intimidated at the moment, I shouldn't let them check my phone. The more I think of it, the more I feel how ridiculous they are.


Hyperblitzing

Why they checking all that?


winleskey

To check if there are any online gambling activities.


TrixEnder

Why did they check you? And in all honesty it looks like an invasion of privacy to check your emails and even WhatsApp.


winleskey

No idea, they just came to the restaurant and start questioning me and another customer. It's definitely an invasion of privacy, but what else can I do in that situation, I had to give them my phone.


TrixEnder

Not sure myself. Isn't it possible to ask a officer if they are permitted to do something like this without reason? And couldnt you also report


JenkinKhan

Amishuki

I don't like McD's Sumo Burger... the taste... kinda bland.


domestobot

I tried the double patty samurai burger. It's much too soggy, although the teriyaki sauce tasted pretty good. There's also a reasonable amount of mayonnaise. They could have not flooded it with the teriyaki sauce for real.


hatstraw27

I never like any of Mcd seasonal burgers.In every one of these burger somehow one taste always overpower everything else.


dahteabagger

Ikr. Plus it's big and jelat.


LeonTheCat448

Those Twitter Gangs are laughing are how the IDF supposedly dismissed India's support because they (India) need to focus on building their nation first. It's quite ironic how this also applies to our country. A country that still's struggling with COVID-19 and still want to go war with a nation half a world away.


dahteabagger

We wouldn't stand a chance against IDF. They've dealt with the Arab Leagues before when the odds are against them, plus they got the backing of a superpower. Us going to war with them is like your level 1 character fighting a level 9999 boss character.


anonymous_and_

So I DIY-ed a bunch of pork/beef mince bak gua. Some of them are a bit undercooked, like I could taste a bit of a bloody tang in the meat. I ate them still without reheating, a day after, because I am a stupid impulsive person that gets even more stupidly impulsive when it comes to eating. I googled parasites and I am now scared. Lol. 🙃🤡

ChiefWoods

About to finish my Diploma in Mechanical Engineering with one last sem to go. Engineers of Malaysia, any advice on furthering my studies locally?


Engheng92

Very much depends on your family capabilities. If your family have the means, can always choose to go for oversea. If not, continue your degree in malaysia is good too. Which uni are you looking at to continue your degree?


ChiefWoods

People have been asking the same question but I still haven't figured it out honestly. I'm based in Selangor, so most offerings in here are considered since renting would be out of the window. Any recommendations for someone inspired to be part of the automotive industry?


Engheng92

Hmm.. i have been working as mechanical engineer for the past 5 years. But decided to change to sales engineer this year. I think one of the thing you have to look out is whether the university that you plan to enroll in is recognised by Malaysia board of engineers. Here is the [EAC](http://www.eac.org.my/web/list_accredited.html). To be honest, most of the companies that i worked for do not specifically look out for which uni that you graduated from as long they are recognised by BOE. By automotive industry like perodua, honda etc? Or you can go into manufacturing companies that produces parts for automotive.


ChiefWoods

Curious, what made you changed paths?


Engheng92

Hmmm. To be honest, engineers in Malaysia generally are underappreciated and underpaid. Unless you can find jobs in oil and gas companies. Even if you work in MNC , the pay do not reflect the amount of jobs and responsibilities you have.


ChiefWoods

Sorry, what's MNC?


brianhoe123

I completed my engineering degree overseas but have met some fantastic engineers who finished their bachelor's locally. My advice (if possible) is to only enroll into university once real-life classes resume. The whole university experience revolves around being in a campus and having real life interaction with others.


ChiefWoods

Never thought of that really. Pre-MCO I was carrying the "complete Degree fast, start working sooner" mindset, but now I'm starting to hear that it's actually better if I delay stepping foot into the actual working world until the pandemic settles down (for real).


shelbyjr

I know some people who started working as associate engineers after getting their diploma. After a couple of years they were promoted to junior engineer. Whilst workin they were also studying for a degree. It is tough imo because you have to work full time and fulfill your academic obligations. If you don't have financial trouble , my suggestion is to continue your degree full time. But tbh I prefer the former route because you gain more experience, tapi stress la


ChiefWoods

Interesting, heard from many relatives that it's crucial that I complete my Degree studies to even have a decent shot in the current industry landscape.


LindenZin

Malaysia offers many engineering courses so your question may be a little too general. STEM jobs are still aplenty. And of course your degree might end up not being relevant to your job.


[deleted]

Important question for people who understand the language: 1. What does "ahneh" mean? 2. Is it offensive to use it to call the mamak guy? Genuinely don't know and really curious to know.


other_batman

1. Older Brother 2. Depends on your relationship I guess. Its a bit more intimate then "boss" or "bang" but maybe that's just me


[deleted]

I take it as it's not offensive and in fact, a friendly endearment in the context of calling the waiter at mamak? Same as calling the makcik or abang burger?


other_batman

Yeah it's definitely not offensive lol. It's term of endearment. It's pretty similar to calling someone abang.

Okay thank you awesome nyet!

Mrsourceplz

So fellow monyet help me abit for childhood (trivia?) memories question. 1) I remember 3 type of milk, the chocolate, the normal and the green, which I hate them. The 3 milk I got free during 'sekolah rendah'. (that is before became 1Malaysia brand). What brand is that? 2) what channel that you need to sms to pick 1 of 5(or 6) song? 3) just asking how did you even got to know about nico nico douga, vocaloid and touhou? So yea that's my question. (also menteri came to visit library today)


Mrsourceplz

To all monyet 1) mat pintar milk 2) astro @15, took too long for me to search 3) big bro fault for making me weeb dat time.


Qelvara

Green colour milk?? @[email protected]


Mrsourceplz

Honeydrew milk, tge box colour as green and white. Not that I like it thou.


hatstraw27

1)can't remember the brand but what we got was small plastic bottle with blue cap called susu segar that had lots of flavour, chocolate,strawberry,and jagung. 3)Knew about vocaloid from senbonzakura youtube song. I only knew about touhou after noticing there were strangely lot of hentai for that series. I have no idea what is nico nico douga, so I guess you are the guy who introduced it to me.


Mrsourceplz

3) its always the hentai reason for touhou, like offbrand 6 digit website are the most than other. Nico nico douga not many knew about it thou.


Takane-Dayo

1. I think the green one is susu tembikai? 2.? 3. My big bro. He watched Black Rock Shooter back then, got hooked by it eventually. The OP still rocking to me till this day. Also my first waifu and only is Hatsune Miku XD


Mrsourceplz

1) yes, honeydrew, the not-so likeable for me. 2) astro @15, took long enough to remember, since that channel is the 1st time I watch anime (chobits) 3) black rock shooter, popipo and levan polka, those day really epic. And yea hatsune miku the OG.


taofubread

1) Mat Pintar, I think! Dude the green one was my favourite. My friends would sometimes look at the bottom of these milks to see if there’s colorful barcode - we called them “game”. Ntah maksud apa lol 3) cousins. Weirded out at first, but then discovered some good songs from them.


Mrsourceplz

Yep, mat pintar alright. I remember I drink alot of choco and normal, except watermelon that I give to my brother. Also rarely I get susu basi from that. From my big bro, during the exist of cybercafe.


LindenZin

From my own unreliable memory: 1) green is milo right, dont remember green milk 2) ntv7 3) its everywhere on youtube and streamers. It wasnt something i wanted to know.


Mrsourceplz

I don't think its milo...except mayyyybee the milo truck then that different. (how did they make good milo anyway?) Pretty oppressed or not many want to know the weeb/neet that time?

frs-1122

today I've finally had someone trying to invalidate my opinion just because I have an anime pfp I couldn't stop laughing commented on a YT video about ain. it's kind of depressing how many people think she's just being sensitive


brianhoe123

I wouldn't personally label it as 'sensitive'. However, it's clear that the younger generation is bred in the digital area which places a high importance on socmed. My main qualm being why is the priority to post it online rather than approaching authorities to address and file for a formal complain. I find it worrying (not just from this case) that the younger generation has a particularly high importance associated with receiving attention/validation.


frs-1122

I completely get your point, but she did point out that she reported it to the school counselor and they didn't do anything about it if I remember correctly. I guess for some spreading the word through socmed is the only way to get a message across.


Amishuki

MmxZero1989

Guys I'm confused. I thought you guys are in MCO 3.0 and why now Govt is announcing going to have MCO in Selangor? Can someone clarify?


tryshaaa123

The goverment is discussing whether or not to have a full sale MCO like the first one last year March. For example, only one person will be allowed to leave the house for grocery shopping only. Only essential businesses will be allowed to operate. Yea, something like la :(((


solus244

Mco 3.0 means three times the confusion, three times a year.


xaladin

The label MCO doesn't matter, you need to read the release notes for the patches/versions.


Hyperblitzing

From which ministers?


VirtualOriginal7

Semua Orang Pening


LindenZin

Cause our government sucks at making things clear. We have mco 3.0 now but with slightly more relaxed rules compared to 1.0. Commercial sectors are allowed to open. Selangor mco being discussed now is the full lockdown.


timmmmmmtimot

So they’re only implemented full lockdown in Selangor then ?


LindenZin

Planning to if cases in selangor dont go down


unverified_email

I hope they shut everything down except for food and supermarkets. Went to pickup KFC, see this 3 uncles sitting in front of a restaurant nearby. Even before MCO they’ve been there. No laws broken, cause they are not inside the restaurant, some times they don’t have mask on. People all walking around them. You try to tell them off, they say you don’t respect elders/orang sendiri. Government “advise” to stay at home, its not an enforced rule. They should start saman people who just out there lepak for no reason.


ezkailez

I'm having dejavu when they announce only selangor and KL (+kelantan) are going to have MCO


karlkry

to put it into simple numbers: 1 out of 42 people in Selangor is Covid positive. * Selangor population: 6,569,000 * Positive cases: 152,388


Helios05

'Into meaningful conversations (also you need to be fit, good looking, career oriented, stable, active, funny and so so on)' lol. Gay dating scene on Tinder is mostly like that everywhere in the world. I might just give up with this and use the money to buy legendary skins on Wild Rift instead.


xelM1

Ironically, “meaningful conversations” could actually mean differently from one person to another. And that’s pretty much the truth about this life where words and phrases, the overall notion of communication is indeed complex. The more you explain yourself to people, the more complex the situation gets, the farther you go from achieving your expectations. With that said, set your expectations *very* carefully before you take any actions. I set mine to “nothing”.


Helios05

I didn't expect much with dating online apps. Just a follow up rant. Got a few of cute matches but ended up with no substance at all. The conversation went up dry very fast. Might go for traditional style of dating? Idk. Also I might do a future experiment and see what will happen if I'm going all out by becoming fitter, getting my hair done etc and see what sort of crowd I can get to. It will be fun to watch.


xelM1

> Also I might do a future experiment and see what will happen if I'm going all out by becoming fitter, getting my hair done etc and see what sort of crowd I can get to. Same shit like you went through ie. no substance, even with subjectively less cuter guys because now you sort of need to babysit their insecurities as they are only attracted to you superficially, not interested to get to know you underneath that attractive packaging. I found that being genuine is the best by accepting who you are as a person with the perfections and imperfections, both inside and out. In other words, show your expiry date on the packaging very clearly, the ingredients (hopefully only natural, no artificial shits, people don’t like toxic stuff) and most importantly, your listed price. Like iPhones, do not discount it even if some things are better on Androids. You don’t have to compare yourself with them, you don’t need to launch a smear marketing campaigns like Samsung did, you just focus on yourself, keep updating iOS with new polished features, no gimmicks.


Helios05

You've got a point. I could see the same thing happen even with a more polished version of myself. I'll be better but not for someone else but to me. That's more important. Thanks for the reminder. Also enjoy your Nasi Lemak! ;)

The realities of online dating. Step 1 : Be Attractive. Step 2 : Don't be Unattractive.


lokemon_35

"I'm just looking for a friend to talk to" but if you're hot, I can totally spend the night with you ;)


Paramore90

Straight dating also the same imo.


YaThisIsDog

That's why I don't date and just be lonely T_T


roti-kenai

That’s why I talk to myself


Amishuki

That's why I resort to anime waifus


nutella_nails

I legit just noticed my driver’s license has expired back in dec 2020 and my debit card has expired since nov 2020. I’m really embracing this hermit mco life man, just go out to do laundry 🧺


xelM1

Mine too, along with my car’s road tax. This shows that we need very little to live this life.


nutella_nails

TRUEEE, what is cashhh. cashless err day all day.


brianhoe123

I drove 2 years with an expired driving license and found out on a random night out when I was getting carded by the bouncer at a club.


nutella_nails

LUL, when u renewed were u questioned

Additional question: Where to buy zongzi (rice dumpling) during MCO?


a_HerculePoirot_fan

I have a friend who ordered from someone on FB before. If you're interested, I can DM.


dahteabagger

Steel7HEP

Been looking for this too.


im-on-mobile-monyet

Look for old school chinese kopitiams? Near where I work they sell


dahteabagger

i was hoping for a more specific shop name....


im-on-mobile-monyet

You never gave a area code. You wanna cross district for rice dumplings?


dahteabagger

Both KL Selangor also can


im-on-mobile-monyet

Folks any of you saw UFO in Malaysia before?


lokemon_35

Apparently back during the 70s, there were rumours in my mom's kampung that there was a crashed UFO and the aliens were short humanoids


LindenZin

Light pollution got lots.


crococatstew

Hmm not sure if its a UFO but I saw strange oval shaped object with lights around it travelling past our flat. I was in elementary at that time. I thought it was just an aeroplane passing by 😂


dahteabagger

Age old question: Do you guys feel (if any) inferior when you pull up to an event with an inferior brand car, or when you pick up your date? Inferior meaning in terms of brand.


xelM1

Used to. Not anymore. Because I am no longer impressed by the material things that people have. And lately, I am easily irritated when people are impressed by the material things I have.


TrixEnder

From what I have seen it looks like this kind of inferiority mindset exists virtually everywhere in whatever


xaladin

Nope. As an ex-Hearthstone addict who sees the value/cost of everything, if my date can't see a car as a means to an ends... we're not gonna have a happy relationship at all.


imaginelizard

No, for the most part. It's only when other folks start giving me stink eyes or talk condescendingly that I might perhaps felt a little bit.


LindenZin

Used to in my younger days. Stop caring recently. Everybody free to use money differently. My boss drives an old truck but his kids all studies overseas and he goes to really nice places for holidays.


JenkinKhan

Eh I don't really care tbh, it's what I can afford.


roti-kenai

Nope. My material items may be inferior, but my bank account is not. 😆


dahteabagger

Ah, the thrifty life-style. Or maybe, you have better ways to spend the $$ to make more $$.


roti-kenai

Ah I am thrifty, albeit, I do splurge on some items, but it’s really only because I really want it and not because I wanna impress anyone. And yes, definitely have better ways to spend $. Especially with the example you gave, the car’s value is gonna depreciate the moment you leave the dealership. I actually opted not to get a vehicle and probably won’t be getting one unless I really need it.


dahteabagger

>the car’s value is gonna depreciate the moment you leave the dealership It's not uncommon. I have a senior colleague who probably earns close to five figures, yet when he has to change car he just goes for a normal vios mid spec for fuel economy reasons. For him a car is to get to A to B without costing too much for petrol, and has to be big enough for future family.


roti-kenai

Haha that’s actually my previous car (it’s a vios here but they market it as yaris) and can vouch for the gas prices! Plus it rarely needed maintenance as well. But yes, I have the same mentality as your colleague that it just needs to get me from point A to point B. And frankly, I don’t care about what others are driving either. I may draw the line at the ghost kancil though for safety reasons.


a_HerculePoirot_fan

Not car for me, but make-up. My only make-up is lipstick. I'm comfortable with the way I look even without excessive make-up, but sometimes when I go out with some of my friends, I do feel slightly inferior.


xelM1

What? You’re a girl. TIL.


a_HerculePoirot_fan

What makes you think I'm a dude?


xelM1

Redditors stereotype, I think.


limaumo

A little bit. The car I drive has a bad reputation and the plate number doesn't help My gf also drives a more expensive car but I'm usually the one picking up 🙃


Paramore90

MyVi with a Penang plate.


foxhighonsugar

Drivers with plates D boleh tahan haram juga sebenarnya


xelM1

Can confirm, even them in persons. The haramness shows.


limaumo

Close...... it's J

finn_thedaddy

car, not so much. clothes and accessories, yes for me. like, have you just put on a nice shirt and pants but then the people there at a social event are wearing even nicer fitted shirt, pants, color coordinate, nice watch, perfume, hairdo, iphones and shoes. maybe I'm just insecure.


dahteabagger

To me I'm not too worried about clothes, coz from the naked eye its not easy to tell what brand they are. Personally I know women who spend less than RM50 for a top yet they can look fabulous because of how they match their accessories.

I feel you


EspantaCampinos

I think your sister needs a serving of shut the fuck up, with a side of five fingers to the face. As for your dad, as you said: your body, your choice. He don't like it, his problem. Now you know, for 2nd dose just go alone and let them berate one another.


poor_icarus

Oh believe me, I don't need to do anything these days for her to get karma. Her own life is getting to her, I know it. I was supposed to get the AZ vaccine alone, it was the plan as they all wanted to wait for the Pfizer vaccine (they changed their mind after I registered). I'm happy to help sometimes but I was just standing in the mess today and realizing why I was always abroad during my semester break before the pandemic and why I wanted to stay there.


JenkinKhan

Wait, you didn't get the AZ vaccine?


poor_icarus

I did.


bananaypk

Wow, are you sure we aren't related? My sister is exactly like that as well, can't go a day without making things all about herself and throwing huge fits over small matters. The only way to deal with this kind of people is to gray-rock them (i.e. ignore them flat out). Don't let them live rent-free in your head. The more you argue with them, the more they will feel they are in the right. There's no winning with people like this. It's a complete waste of energy to even try to negotiate or reason with them.
