I find it funny that LCPeans work they way we do

Well okay this goes straight regarding The Making of Geng or Geng: Di Sebalik Tabir. When a director came in to prove he was right for the job of directing a full live action feature film under our producer's support, we rejected it and said it was way too boring and serious. We wanted the making of geng to be fun and informative. 

Of course he didn't get it but that's beside the point. The point is our team took over the project and worked so hard to make it as fun as possible aside being very informative to mainstream audience. After another revamp of the project, we finally got it right. All the pioneers acted as lively as we could, making ridiculous jokes and acting, basically making a fool of ourselves in hopes that audiences would really enjoy it.

So what's funny? Now the team just realised everyone in Malaysia would probably have seen the show and will recognize us and our ridiculous gags. Now the team is ever shy with whatever it is they did and hope not too many people would have seen the show and recognize us in the streets.

I find us funny

I find it funny that I'm shy of my postings

This just happened a while ago. I just found out that my colleague knows of this blog without me advertising it and she has actually read my old Voobe blog. What's weirder is that she's read it even before entering LCP.


But then a blog is public and anything I write is free for all to read. It's funny that I let myself pour thoughts and opinions in blogs with obscenity and ocassional profanity without wanting anyone outside to read it. Silly Anas. Blogs aren't supposed to be private. Hypocrite. I bet she's smiling at this Irony.

I find it funny that I don't really like people reading my blog

I find it funny that taxi drivers drive the way they do

We all have had our own fair share of taxi rides. Who doesn't? We've been car-less at one time, or simply taking the public transportation because we can't be bothered to be stuck in jam. 

What strikes me as... well funny, is how taxi drivers continue to drive the way they do. Yes you know what I mean. Absence of signals, complete disregard of public and personal safety, and absolutely no respect for the law. Ok lah I guess there are some normal ones. I remember one witty pakcik who commented on other drivers driving. 

We were chatting on something and despite making jokes about other drivers, one driver caught his attention. It was a car swerving into his lane in the last minute but without a signal.

"Ya Allah... mesti perempuan ni." said the driver. Truthfully enough it was a women (though I'm not saying anything of this matter, I reserve my opinion to female drivers as my own. If you wanna hear it you gotta ride with me) So she got in front of him and we stopped at a traffic light crossroads. It was obvious we were taking a right but at that particular time she gave her signal.

"Apa la ko ni, memang la nak pusing kanan, tak perlu la signal. Haiihh (the woman took a slow slow turn) aku langgar bontot kau baru tau!" 

What really prompted me to write this is one particularly strange driver. I was at the Batu tiga station, found myself a driver and hopped in. He was of mid 30s and seemed like the typical racer. Sure enough inside were modded to his likings. I'm not sure if it's legal for you to mod your taxi company's car but he changed the steering, pedals, gear and even handbrake to racing types. 

So how did he drive? Like a twat of course. He sped off (yours truly clawed to the seats despite a seatbelt in place), swerved in and out without signals, took last minute brakes, jumped the red light, cut the line at the traffic light when there's only 2 and he made the 3rd one, sent me straight to my office in mere seconds and then when i pointed out to the road leading to my office he screeched to a halt. What the hell I thought. What possible anarchistic maneuver is he pulling? It was a sunday, no cars at this small road. The area was quiet as a closed library.  "Eh depan ni Cik" said I. He replied "Tak boleh, kena berhenti kat sini". "Kenapa?" I asked and he pointed to the no entry sign "No entry ni dik". 

Bemused, I paid the dood and walked off. He took a U-Turn and sped off with devilish speed.
