Macam mana LABBIT dapat nama?


     Hai! Tak lama dulu, sye pernah guna pic rabbit as my profile pic kat FB. Then cikgu silat sye panggil sye Labbit. Taw kenapa? Cikgu ade send sye email pasal tu. Baca bawah ni...


One of the main reasons why in recent years the Singapore Government has always ensured that their Miss Universe pageant representative were of tertiary level education or higher was because of the following incident which happended not too long ago.

It is the final round of the Miss Universe Pageant and the 3 finalists, Miss USA, Miss Malaysia and Miss Singapore are being asked 3 simple questions:

MC: The first question is name me an electrical appliance starting with the letter “L”
Miss USA: Lamp
Miss Malaysia: Light bulb
Miss Singapore: LADIO
Judge: No. Radio does not start with the letter “L”

Then, the move on to the second question.

MC: I am going to give you 3 more chances; Now, name me an animal starting with the letter “L”
Miss USA: Lion
Miss Malaysia: Leopard
Miss Singapore: LABBIT
Judge: No, no!

MC: Miss Singapore, please pay attention to this next question. Give me the name of a famous car that starts with “L”
Miss USA: Lexus
Miss Malaysia: Lamborghini
Miss Singapore: Lolls- Loyce
Judge: Oh my God!

MC: I am going to give you one last chance! Name me a fruit starting with the letter “L”
Miss USA: Lemon
Miss Malaysia: Lychee
Miss Singapore, with full of confidence, smiles and says: LIEWLIAN!!

This is not the end of the story, the Judge consulted the board of judges to determine if Miss Singapore should really be disqualified; and they decided that since Miss Singapore was having so many problems with the letter “L”, they decided to give her another chance.

Judge: OK, the final question is: Name me a human anatomy starting with the letter “L”
Miss USA: Lung (applause)
Miss Malaysia: Liver (even more applause)
Miss Singapore: LAN CIAU!! OMG, the Judges fainted instantly!

By the way, you can only appreciate the joke above if you understand that some Chinese educated people are having problem pronouncing words starting with the letter “R”. They usually pronounce it with “L” instead or “R”.


Faham? Dia ganti huruf R dengan hurf L. So, Rabbit jadi Labbit. Sampai sekarang dia panggil sye macam tu. Sampai dah sebati. Huhu~

Nota kaki : Kalau macam tu, Amirah jadi Amilah? Erk! Sound weird!

That's all! Tata!
