I would appreciate men with hankies. Not the lacy or lavendar colored ones tho. Dark colored plain or checkers would be nice. Cotton types. Ironed and folded. Changed daily.
They would look the perfect gentleman. But what they actually do with the hanky is a different matter altogether.

On a rainy day, I would be pleased if my man has his hanky ready. :)

it is an item I don't leave home without.
It had been used by damsels to wipe tears of joy. It wipes CC fun off me lips.
Its a mini towel for emergency shower in R&R and of course, to wipe my sweetheart when the rain wet her or the petrol spilled on her top....heck its almost as useful as the swiss knife.

I use handkerchief to wipe myself. If its soiled, I'll run it through the pipe and blow dry it. Hankerchief is easy to dry.

Next, I bring along a pack of tissue in my pocket for the use of others if they do need it.

A man who uses tissue is a 'fa fit' man.

A man with an ironed and nicely folded handkerchief is a married man. That is a tell tale sign every woman should know. So my wife makes sure that the handkerchief in my pocket stay that way. So if you see a man who needs to use a handkerchief and yet does not pull it out from his pocket in the presence of the opposite sex means he is trying to hide the fact that he is married. Sorry guys for betraying you all.

Hey PC, you are the expert.

What about someone whose handkerchiefs are never ironed, recycled, occassionally folded but at times, rolled up as a ball, but still need to use them as those pocket size Kleenex are too damn expensive and too feminine for some.

That guy whose handkerchiefs are never ironed have no one to do the laundry so most probably is still single. But if his handkerchief is rolled up as a ball, though he is single, he is a disorderly man. And if he recycles his handkerchief, he is a lazy man so best to stay clear from him if a girl is looking for a perfect man.

Err...how about when the man blows his nose repeatedly into his hanki...which he takes out...n then shoves back into his pocket...the whole day...isn't it yucky?:p

Ahem...hmmm...gotta ask dear Tupai:)...whether he would re use the same hanki again when he needs to wipe the cheeks of his favorite gals...:D

A man normally carries a hankerchief. If he does not, most probably he has forgotten to put it in his pocket in the morning.
There are only 2 occasions when men carries tissue in the pocket...
1. When he has a bad flu
2. when he is out on a friday nite.........

16-04-2006, 02:50 PM
When I go out and look for a good time, I always make sure that my hanky (b4 wiping the petrol off her top :p ) is clean & folded.

Next time, if agot chance lah and in the company of the feminine kind, also out for a good time, my clean & folded hanky will be taken out repeated, just so (accordingly to PC's theory) that my marital status is flashed and no additional matrimonial or long term intimacy plan will be entertained :p

Orchi, my petrol soaked hanky had been used to wipe here/there by my female friends a few times already leh...they are the tattooed, outdoor sporting type..not the delicate indoor pretty wall flowers lah :p

I would suppose in the modern era of Kleenex, the handkerchief would have been retired. Those who continue to leave home with them have been conditioned to do so or did that out of absent mindedness. I prefer the kleenex but after being bombarded worst than Pearl Harbour, I reverted to the handkerchief. You see, I have a phobia of being caught with the harchiew attack and without either a handkerchief or a kleenex, I will surely die. So when I emancipated myself from the handkerchief, I would equip myself with a couple pieces of kleenex and kept them in my trousers' pocket. But when I didn't have use for them, it remained in there and almost forgotten until from the backyard came a scream "How many times must I tell you to dispose your tissues before you sent your trousers for washing?" Sometimes, the shredded pieces 'infected' other clothings and the scream got even louder. So now it is back to handkerchief.

I belong to the yucky group when I have a bad allergy attack and sneeze non stop. Paper tissues will just disintegrate and can't keep up and I will have pieces of torn wet tissues sticking to my nose if I use them.
Hankies are recyclable, and enviromentaly friendly. :p

I had very bad sinus when I was young, my harchiews were always fast and strong. I remember there was once I didn't manage to take out tissues on time and my mucus actually flew and stuck to the back of my classmate who was sitting in front of me. :D

Well, when it comes to bad flu, when one needs to wipe his/her nose all the time, wiping it with hankie and tissues would only make the skin surrounding the nose sore ...

I have always had a hankie right from the first day I went to school till now. I never fail to have one except, of course, when I am playing games, jogging or swimming etc. But I do find it a bit yeach when I see some people blowing their nose right into their hankie. Sorry if you do.

There can be quite a story to the hankie. There was a time when one of my secretary came to see me and shared with me her woes. She cried so much till I ran out of the little bit of tissue I had left. Like a gentleman, I lent her my hankie. But when I went home, I realised the hankie had a very special frangrance besides the stain of mascara! How? Why wify believe my innocence? Decided best just to throw away the hankie! Ha ha...!! Funny in hindsight ;-)

hahaha~ no wonder my wifey insisted on ironing my hanki and fold it nicely... :D
and I always told her no need to iron, just fold it enough liaw... but she still insisted :p

For me, my hanki is for personal use only... I will offer it to other damsel in distress only it's still unused clean & fresh. ;)

I wonder why everytime I pull out my hanki from my pocket, ppl tends to be shocked... "Wah~~! You still using a hanki ar... haven't seen that for a long time liaw..." :p

My Dad uses a hanky. I remember when I was in primary school, I will always insist on ironing and folding his hanky only........the rest of the ironing will be left for my amah to do. My mom used to use those lacy hankies. I think they were popular in the 50s and 60s.

I remember my brother's daily school allowance of 30 sen was always tied up in a knot using a hanky.

I remember my brother's daily school allowance of 30 sen was always tied up in a knot using a hanky.
So nostalgic to recall those days when we tie our coins using our handkerchiefs. I had a funny incident that left me crying. When at the school canteen when it was time to pay for my food, I discovered that my mum had tied the knot too tight that I could not untie it to get my 10 cents Queen Elizabeth coin to pay for my Hokkien mee. And the Hokkien mee man took out his knife and cut it off and I was left there crying for I knew my mother would kill me when she found this out. That was the only handkerchief I had which I treasured so much and to mutilate it was a great sin. If he has done this to me today, I would have killed him and plead insanity as my defence. But God was merciful to me when on my way walking home (yes, I had to walk 4km to school everyday - West Jelutong to Francis Light Primary School in Perak Road, Penang), I found a similar handkerchief and till this day, mum didn't know about this. Mum, sorry for that. I have finally got this incident off my chest.

Yes....tied at the corner. When I was in standard one, I wanted to be like my koko (big brother), however i was given a purse to put in my coins. how come he had money tied in a hanky and I didn't? Not fair!

Oh pcyeoh...you really got me feeling a bit nostalgic too! I was staying in Glugor Street which was just just behind the Jelutong area when I was studying in primary school then. I was a bit more fortunate than you as I got an old faithful Raleigh brand bicycle (handed down from my father to brother to me!) to use. Whenever I got bored those days, I would take my bicycle for a ride and I always ride my bike to areas like Jelutong and even Perak Road area as this was quite nearby to where I stayed. Didn't know then that you were from Jelutong area too! Btw, just to share a little secret here - when I was studying for my exams (during secondary school days), sometimes the weather there was too hot to handle for a single storey terrace house like mine, so I would ride on my bike to Bukit Dumbar nearby to get some shady places to sit and read. Of course there were some other things to watch too up there apart from just reading my books ;) That explains why I didn't do well in my SPM exams then although I did quite well in the SRP exam then.

Oops! sorry for getting out of topics due to the above nostalgia. Yes I'm also one of those who have been trained to use the hanky from std 1 onwards. Till now I still don't leave home without the handy hanky in my pockets (ironed well too!) :D

OK....should compare the versatility of hankie and tissue .

1st n foremost , my hankie will go wherever I go n comes back in a piece ...wet or dry , soft or hard. Try that with a tissue....

No..I do not tie the 1 kupang with it . I tie it to my trouser's pocket n sometimes on the shirt..:p

The other extreme is that I can also use it to hang myself ..:eek:

Still using it nonetheless.....

Till now I still don't leave home without the handy hanky in my pockets (ironed well too!) :DErr...Orchi was also one of those that was trained to use a hanki...since Primary One...so that Orchi could also use it...to tie the 5 cents coin pocket money within the hanki...with a rubberband...so it won't get missing that easily.

Long since then...Orchi gave up the use of hanki...coz Orchi could easily get to use the tissue instead whenever Orchi needs to blow a nose or wide the mouth after a sloppy meal...

But the other reason for not needing to use the hanki...is because it was too small to contain the pocket money that Orchi carries around ever since then...

I cannot believe nobody quoted Seinfeld yet...so here goes.



It is pretty hard to justify, at this point in history, the existence of men and their handkerchiefs. I mean, they open it up, blow their nose in it, and then put it back in their pockets with their other valuables. Wallet, keys, mucous, yup, I've got everything. Is it because men can't give birth that they're just proud of anything that comes out of us? We actually have a monogram sewn on to them. What is the source of pride here? We actually have it sticking out of the breast pocket of our jacket. "I have a snot rag."

Pretty unhygienic to tie coins and currency notes inside a handkie, and then used it to wipe the eyes, nose n mouth isn't it? u'd nvr know what kind of germs are on those coins :eek:

Another use of the hankerchief that I remember is to tie a knot on one end and dab some minyak angin cap kapak to sniff when u hv a cold or runny nose. :D Not for me anyhow, always hated the smell of the minyak angin. :p

Obviously PJS wasnt privy to the use of the hanky. You see, we only use the corner of the hanky for the coin. The rest of the hanky was kept clean all the time. It really was quite ingenius...whoever thought of that! That way, we never lose our precious little 20cts! ;-)

My amah would also use the hanky as protection against rain. Just tie knot at the four corners and place on head. I seem to remember when I was young, old ladies would stick their hankies into their samfoo tops.

I also remember learning in primary school to fold a hanky in a certain way (origami using cloth), then yank the sides together...and hey presto.... a bra! We found it hilarious!

hankies are getting expensive and difficult to find nowadays. I only like pure white crisp 100% cotton ones. Can't find in any local dept stores anymore.

Marks and Spencer sells half a dozen white hankerchiefs for err.. RM50 or so?... can't remember. :eek: Bought about a dozen some time back, been using for many years. These white things get easily stained by the filthy Selangor water so I installed ceramic filters for washing machine just to make sure my hankies stay crisp white! Yes, to that extend! muahahaha! :D

I even have some hankies that dates back 10-20 yrs, that are just a white as new ones, heheh.

Oh, my white hankies aren't ironed, just neatly folded. So according to pcyeah's theory, that's the sign of ??? :D ???

As for clearing one's nasal cogestions into the hankie, I used to work with a New Zealander (orang puteh) who would not hesitate to blow into his one piece of crumpled hankie throughout the day infront of us when he had a cold. Eeewww.

You know how cheeky primary school children are. It was during my primary school days that I learned this trick and it was sheer hilarious when we tried to imitate the ladies folks and our friends would laugh their heads off and some even ended up rolling on the floor. I wish I could demonstrate and post my photo here but I will surely get a tandan of bananas from Chang for being fetish rather than out of line!!

Jane, giving hankies to the Chinese as a gift is a BIG NO NO. In my hometown, cheap hankerchiefs or "Good Morning" towels tied with red strings are normally given to guests who are sending someone a final send-off. I don't know whether people are still pantang with this.

Huh. Something for me to learn. Thought the send-off they only use the white good morning towels No.99. Didnt know they also use handkerchiefs. OK, I must be careful whom I give them to these days. But I guess the younger folks dont mind receiving them. My frens are still in the younger generation group, so its still safe. Thanks ya. :o

Huh. Something for me to learn. Thought the send-off they only use the white good morning towels No.99. Didnt know they also use handkerchiefs. OK, I must be careful whom I give them to these days. But I guess the younger folks dont mind receiving them. My frens are still in the younger generation group, so its still safe. Thanks ya. :o

My gf just gave me a box of 4 handkerchiefs as a gift, I m ok with that, absolutely no pantang at all.... :) :) :)

I think hankie and tissues might have some other functions, like using them to 'pad' the back pockets of the jeans so the butt looks ... more 'protruding'?
I remember reading this on a magazine, there was this supermodel who did this, can't remember who though.

well, i think this trick only applicable to 'high waist' jeans, where the back pockets are, well, at the back.
