 Syiok Sendiri 5: Back to School!

SYNOPSIS
Well, well! Look who’s back! You thought you saw the last of us didn’t you?! Well, tough cheese ’cause we’re harder to get rid off than a democratically elected Prime Minister! School is in session, boys and girls! This fifth instalment of Syiok Sendiri will give audiences a taste of the Malaysian classroom experience. Join Puan Pamela Rodrigues and her BFF Miss Helen Shanti along with their comrades in education as they attempt to give you a little bit of pendidikan…Malaysian style.

We’ve said this many times, but it looks like we’ll probably have to say this every time we come up with a new show. Ladies and Gentlemen, Syiok Sendiri is not intended to be some glorious artistic work of art. Neither is it set up to be some sort of intelligent social commentary piece. But, if you do get our multiple references to current affairs and popular culture then good for you la. Our objective has been and always will be to entertain. Of course, Syiok Sendiri would not be what it is if we didn’t throw in the occasional cili padi in the mix kan. But hey, if you can’t laugh at yourself then what can you do? You can #GetEducated la.

A special shout out to our fans – YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING! To those unfamiliar with the Syiok Sendiri brand of Malaysian comedy – where have you been and what are you waiting for??? Oh, and to the fella that responded “seats not comfortable” in the previous show’s survey forms – thank you for your feedback. So far, no one else has had that grievance. Please do identify yourself at the Box Office when you purchase tickets for Syiok Sendiri 5 and we shall provide you with some burung gagak feathers and a pillow case…for the sake of your posterior. See you folks at the Theatre!

看看是誰回來了!你該不會以為你再也見不到我們了吧?!要知道戲癮比我們經過民主程序委任的首相更難甩掉!各位笑神犀利班的同學們,開課啦!讓我們回到充滿美好回憶的校園裡,潘美拉老師將與她的閨蜜同事海倫以及一眾麻辣教師,給你最典型的馬來西亞式教育。

New Wall Mural on Smoking

I called it ” Smoking cures cancer ” as when one dies off of cancer then definitely the smoking stops permanently.

The Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge or Penang Second Bridge   2 comments


The Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge or Penang Second Bridge

The Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah Bridge or Penang Second Bridge (Malay: Jambatan Sultan Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah or Jambatan Kedua Pulau Pinang, Tamil : சுல்தான் அப்துல் ஹாலிம் முவாட்சாம் ஷா பாலம் or பினாங்கு இரண்டாவது பாலம்) E28 is a dual carriageway toll bridge in Penang, Malaysia. It connects Bandar Cassia (Batu Kawan) in Seberang Perai on mainland Peninsular Malaysia with Batu Maung on Penang Island. It is the second bridge to link the island to the mainland after the first Penang Bridge. The total length of the bridge is 24 km (15 mi) with length over water at 16.9 km (10.5 mi), making it the longest bridge in Malaysia and the longest in Southeast Asia. China Harbour Engineering Co Ltd (CHEC), a main contractor for the second bridge was expected to start work on the second Penang bridge in November 2007 and complete the project in 2011, but the completion date was then postponed to May 2012, and later to February 2014. Construction started in November 2008. To reduce the cost of construction, its design was then modified to resemble the first cable stayed Penang Bridge. The bridge has been built with a large loan from the People’s Republic of China to continue and maintain the economic relationship between China and Malaysia. The bridge was officially opened on 1 March 2014 at 20:30 MST and was named after the fourteen Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Abdul Halim Muadzam Shah of Kedah and was assigned with the route number E28.

THE GLASS MENAGERIE 玻璃動物園 by Tennessee Williams ~ Part 2

Apologies as I was having electrical power failure for the whole day (Thursday, 22/09/2016) until 7.15 pm with partial restoration of one phase only!

SP Lim

From Wikipedia:-

Thomas LanierTennesseeWilliams III (March 26, 1911 – February 25, 1983) was an American playwright and author of many stage classics. Along withEugene O’Neill and Arthur Miller he is considered among the three foremost playwrights in 20th-century American drama.

After years of obscurity, he became suddenly famous with The Glass Menagerie(1944), closely reflecting his own unhappy family background. This heralded a string of successes, including A Streetcar Named Desire (1947), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1955), and Sweet Bird of Youth (1959). His later work attempted a new style that did not appeal to audiences, and alcohol and drug dependence further inhibited his creative output. His drama A Streetcar Named Desire is often numbered on the short list of the finest American plays of the 20th century alongside Long Day’s Journey into Night and Death of a Salesman.

Much of Williams’ most acclaimed work was adapted for the cinema. He also wrote short stories, poetry, essays and a volume of memoirs. In 1979, four years before his death, Williams was inducted into the American Theater Hall of Fame.

*****************************************************************************************************************************************

A mother who refuses to let go of her past. A sister who shelters herself in fantasy. A brother suffocating under the weight of his obligations to them both.

Welcome to the Wingfield home, a world of it’s own in which the line between truth and illusion becomes blurred. Fear and desperation bring a gentleman caller for dinner, thereby igniting the flames of change. In glass houses such as these, something is bound to break. 70 years after its creation, the pure poetry of Tennessee Williams’ classic masterpiece The Glass Menagerie still grips the hearts and minds of anyone willing to receive it. The universal themes of family, love, loss and hope for the future are truly timeless.

Starring Marina Tan (Marble Hearts, Don’t Let Shakespeare Know, Shear Madness, Postcards from Rosa), Christopher Preslar, Tan Seoh Chen, and Ivan Gabriel.

一位過度沉溺於過去的母親,一位總是把自己鎖在幻想中的女兒,一位被家庭現況壓得透不過氣來的兒子… …

歡迎來到溫菲爾德的家庭!這是一個孤立在現實與理想之外,美麗卻易碎的玻璃動物園。出自於二十世紀美國重要劇作家 田納西・威廉斯的經典之作,《玻璃動物園》至今仍在人類雋永不變的親情、愛情、期望與失落的輪迴中綻放迷幻光彩。
