    Doesnt this look WEIRD?



    On my recent trip to Langkawi, I spotted this sign near Telaga Harbour. I thought it sounds weird unless my BM is going down the drain !

    Luckily the English sign did not say "Monkey Eating Place"

    It sounds okay to me, i do understand what its trying to convey.
    How about some photos of you feeding the monkeys..are they friendly and how did they take to you?
    Or did you say you just spotted this sign.

    Monyek Bakar for breakfast 10am to 11am. Monyet Tempoyak for lunch 1pm to 2 pm. Monyet Satay - is for high tea between 5pm to 6pm. Since you are ordering after 7pm., all we can serve you is a leftover banana by the monkey.

    I think this is how Malay language is used. Yes, since many years ago I have observed this type of statements being used. I first pay attention to it when I saw Kedai Jahit Wanita!

    What time were you there? You should read the sign closely - it only has an hour service at 3 intervals a day serving monkey bakar. It is not like 24 hour MCD or Mamak shop. Baca baik baik
