Home Ministry Blues

This (sadly) typical article was spotted in today's edition of The Sun:

Syndicate behind obscene apparel smashed

Georgetown: The Home Ministry enforcement division yesterday smashed a syndicate which sold stickers and tee-shirts that carry messages promoting the use of marijuana and obscenity. Enforcement officers observed the activities in an apparel retail outlet in Bukit Jambul Complex for three days before raiding it.

They seized hats, tee-shirts, handkerchiefs, rings and chains featuring the marijuana plant. Enforcement chief Tengku Rosinah said the pictures and the obscenity were detrimental to the public because youths wearing apparel bearing such obscenities could be involved in immoral activities. (!!!)

Two saleswomen in the shop were brought in for questioning. Both may be charged under Section 8(1) of the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984. If convicted, they are liable to a fine of up to RM20,000, three years jail or both.

Is the Home Ministry enforcement wankers so fooking free that all they have to do is harass some small-time business? C'mon, shops selling such t-shirts & merchandise has been around fer decades!!! Me should know as me was a regular customer of these shops of "ill repute" at Pertama in the 80s.

The list of social ills & various other problems are sooooo fooking long & yet our Home Ministry tries to play Moral Police by raiding a t-shirt shop. Seriously, fer fook's sake la. And who have they gotten to take the rap? Two unfortunate salesgirls.

As fer the statement "youths wearing these t-shirts may be involved in immoral activities", that really takes the fooking cake. So if some teenage gals wearing tudungs were caught in a sexually comprimising scenario, would you ban the headwear? Or how bout we ban senior male citizens from checking into hotels since Chua Soi Lek's behaviour would indicate that all old men are dirty old fooks out fer some quick relief? Fooking bodoh punya rationale la.

Yes, this is a rant about something quite minor (not quite FREE RAJA PETRA mode) but it just irritates the fook out of me when me sees shit like this.

And dear Tengku Rosinah, in case you are not aware, the pakalolo logo (and so what's the big fooking deal anyway?) is just a mouse click away along with a whole wide world of FREE FOOKING PORN (don't believe me, just ask Tuan Kerp) . . .

ps: In light of this news, it is appropriate that the 'Mandatory Listening' album (on left) is none other than Bob Marley's Catch A Fire. Wonder what he's smoking?

senorita.. said...

u must be kidding me...

1st thought was, "these fuckers must be damn bloody free to monitor da shop for 3 days before raiding it"

my God... are they thinking that the shop has got some evil conspiracy going by selling those t-shirts? for goodness' sake,monitoring a t-shirt selling stall... c'mon...... this is a blardy joke

also,wonder how long has the shop been operating before some morons noticed that it's selling 'obscene' t-shirts

Not as if you don't know about the Moral Cops. The need to justify their pay check & existence every so often by making a fooking disgrace of themselves. But I say its the right time to "weed" out dem "stone" age monkeys & "bong" dem off to Timbuktu. Ahhh...fook dem lah. Chill man & pass the duchie pon de left hand side....!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

Oi, what the hell man? I swear its been…days since I last went into one. I believe my fav site has seized its operation lah….dang…

I am so with you on this. it does not necessary mean when a guy dons a pakalolo t-shirt he’s high on marijuana. Fine man, this shit is illegal but until he is caught smoking one, them power-crazy authority should just lay off. Imagine the wrath if the religious officer knew Rastafarian is actually some form of a religion. We Muslim fellows will be in another deep shit, taking the rap from syariah court…aiyahhhhhhh…

mozisgod said...

dude, moral police my arse la dei, probably more like.. that month's collection never "masuk" kot...or this one customer..which they're trying to gertak a bit.. "glorified rackeetering"/"lawful extortion"..bloody cloaked up teamsters..except in this case they're on the opposite side of the fence *sigh*..regret if i may sound somewhat apathetic dude, but unfortuantely yes, i have been reduced to this. seeing completely legal business owned by my uncles gettin harrased beyond belief..while farkin childporn peddlers or roadside can carik makan? wtf? why:-
a) all covered with some poonanee-stained cash - therefore suka sama suka?;
b) all covered literally even some poonaneee; OR
c) or just some free-bee cds for the weekends is good enough ..with swaying tits and anal action.

kepale burit.

can't help reminiscing about that incident dude..yu know the one where the infamous (now) tempe mucncher went out on withchunt to ban farkin condoms from pharmacies dei...mwahahhaha... i mean wtf
stop the condoms and yu stop/minimze casual sex?

karang kotek tumbuh hok kepale baru tau...

ciao - catch a fire. awesome stuff.

skank on mate.

mucho violen-te today,

Moz: Me first thought exactly - cukai tak masuk. Me knows what it feels like as the cops & MPPPJ had a fooking field day harrassing me bistro. Just coz me had big TV screens (fer footie) they labelled me bar/restaurant as a KTV joint! All this while, the DVD & Kuda mesin shop operated willy nilly. Once they came to Broadwalk cari pasal, me asked them if they had visited those illegal businesses. Only then did they leave me alone.
That's the one thing me DON'T miss bout running a bar. The constant harrasment from the authorities took years off me life . . .

anba: Fooking nazis . . .

bernard: Me knows these shops will continue to exist but just feel fer the poor shop owner & his two workers.

kerp: He he . . . Wait till Tuan Kerp - President of Partai Porno enters the August House! Free Porn Fer All!!!

anfield devotee said...

senorita: Yup, you said it. Three days scouting out the shop to see how much they were raking in (& like moz pointed out), came fer their cut . . .

Makes me wanna go out & buy a Pakalolo T-shirt now.

Am listening to Bob Marley's Natty Dread CD on me headphones as me is writing this . . .

Our local authorities never cease to amaze and amuse the hell out of me! The worse part is a lot of these stories are now accessible to foreigners due to the net. I have this story to tell :

2 weeks back, I was e-mailing a friend of mine from Australia. Then in one of his mails, while trying to deny s'thing, he mentioned "It may sound like me, it may seem like me but not 100% me"

I asked him, "You heard of that one huh?" He said, "Gosh, your judiciary is the laughing stock in Australia" Nuff said!

The authorities shd probably go raid that shop in Midvalley which sells "Sex paraphernalia" (Anyone knows if it is still open?)

Lest they think their recent elections result is not bad enuf, they can always try to make it worse by doing things like that!

anfield devotee said...

Life's Like That: How can they close the Midvalley sex shop. These fookers all regulars la . . . (& Kerp as well!!!) ha ha

senorita.. said...

they sex shop's owner shud have a strict security and have a guard to check IDs before patrons can be allowed in... this shud shut the authorities up.. (if they're again,too free,and go mess with these shops that is..)

senorita.. said...

and u know wht,shops selling bras/panties/lingeries should also be discreet or follow a certain rules of conduct coz these clothings might induce sexual urges...and then people might not be able to take it and start fucking around... (worst case scenario..i wonder sometimes =P)

geeee... women will have to wear plain conventional bras and panties now.. boring!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

i admit am a regular patron of Midvalley but never knew there was actually a sex-shop there. i didnt miss anything did i?


senorita,

why bother wearing any?

now before i get all the crap from tuan bala the jawi officer, this is mere a suggestion and nothing of any ill-intention from my part.

Life's Like That said...

Senorita : I think you have this uncanny ability knowingly or unknowingly to be able to divert "serious topics" to some "more interesing" ones! Haha!
If these officers go raid lingerie shops and confiscate the goods, wonder wat they'll do with it. Maybe pass on to their wives?

Kerp : You regular there? Any interesting toys?

Life's Like That said...

Kerp : The world w'out lingerie is a much more boring place! Think Victoria secret models....

senorita.. said...

kerp,not wear anything cuts out a lot of excitement and fun......

do u wanna see skin straight or wanna see skin through sheer lingerie first...

life's like that,i'm sorry.. didn't mean to... it's just that i pass by this very nice lingerie shop everyday on the way to uni... so it somehow is in my mind whether i like it or not... =P

to the owner of the blog,please don't ban me from your blog

Life's Like That said...

Senorita : See what I mean!!! You r starting again. I have no complainssss!!!! No need to apologise!

The owner of this blog won't ban youlah! That dirty old bugger is probably enjoying this more than anyone! JAWI officer, konon!

premo said...

Hmph. Nothing new la this one... since we were kids alredy kena all sorts from authorities just for having long hair, torn jeans, metal-tees etc...

Don't mean just cos you look like a rock stoner dude that you are one. But then again its second nature for people in general to cast judgement based on first impression.

Its another thing entirely for that to be the POV of law enforcement and judicial authorities, who should rely on hard evidence and logic. Otherwise its blatant discrimination/oppression... in this case selective and with

anfield devotee said...

senorita: Hmmm . . . such smut. Terrible. Cis!
Ha ha! Yer always welcome here as you can see you have yer own set of "fans" in the shape of LLT & Kerp (not forgetting Kopite78).

LLT: Lingerie shoppe? Mau buka satu?

Kerp: Ha ha . . . not jawi officer. Gentleman la sikit brudder. But me has to commend you fer the quickness of that "don't wear any underwear quip" . . . that was almost Thierry Henry like sharpness.

premo: As told by a person who has been taken into custody by the cops fer being a macha . . .

senorita.. said...

aiyah... all adults here... nothing that can't be discussed healthily... =P

bout passing judgment from impression..... yes,that's one thing.. but how is the society gonna change when the authorities are showing that it's okay to pass judgment and that all things that LOOK bad IS bad...

and oh,enough of the lingerie alrdy...

=D

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

senorita,

at this current rate, i'd go for the former. read: unmarried.


LLT,

ok i'll re-think what i just said to senorita. boyyy...never thought this would be tough man...


boss,

what TH? its Theo now bro.

senorita.. said...

bro, unmarried people also like lingeries.. but of course,there's gotta be exceptions... some like it hot,some cold... so yea...

and oh,Theo's good and cute

Well, the home ministry needs to be seen to be working. That's an easy avenue for them! More serious problems? Sweep them under the carpet. Go catch some clueless sales girls instead. Easy work. Job done.

anfield devotee said...

weiyin: And they need the Home Ministry & its wide ranging powers to do this ?

AD: I really like your scenario "So if some teenage gals wearing tudungs were caught in a sexually comprimising scenario, would you ban the headwear?". Its so fooking true mate. And believe me there are loads of this pics on email... where some girl wearing tudung will be giving a BJ to some guy in some pondok somewhere... due to the lack of other stimulating activities in the kampung.

We should use those pictures to make t-shirt out of it. you think it will sell? even if they do intend to catch us, it will take those slow wankers 3 days to act...so we just sell for 2 days then we disappear to another location and then the other cawangan in the new location will need another 3 days to act. hehehehe.

anfield devotee said...

achilles: Great fooking idea. Trust the conniving Kotek businessman to come up with such schemes he he.

moz: Fook Strachan la . . . Bagus jadi manc. Get stabbed in the back by wanker fergie. Haargh!

senorita.. said...

woah... how did Achilles know of such pictures?

*opps.. cabut*

Achilles said...

senorita: i know of such pics coz i was the one who snapped the pics. hehehehehee no lah...just kidding.

i got lots of horny friends like AD who have sent me such photos in the past. what to do. hehehehe

senorita.. said...

oooh... not only i get to know the truth, but i got another mystery unveiled as well....

*good job, to myself*

LOL

Tinesh said...

Cock la..The shop prolly forgot to pay their monthly rent or they refused to..That must be why they kena..Wat kotteness is this???

anfield devotee said...
