"TRANSLATION" is both a serious and hilarious business, esp. you chat up da chamber~made! in Beijing:)

My judge-of-a-fRiend regularly sends me nuggets to lift my spirits, for he knows after GE13, Desi swallows and wallows in more (KNOT Amore!) downers than uppers. So sharing his sharing:)~~~~~~~ Pleas don't shoot Desi, he's jest a messenger (knot messeur, so don't ask for a rub!:)  OR :(

********************************************TQ U Latuk for taking' the tloubel, "WOE MEN DU XI YI QIA REN!"...BUMmer YL, Desi, knottyaSsusual from Furong PS: I'm seeking a job as a Translator in China: Does anywan hear no the hotel Menagerie?*********************************************************************

A friend went to Beijing recently and was given this brochure by the hotel. It is precious. She is keeping it and reading it whenever she feels depressed... 

Obviously, it has been translated directly, word for word from Mandarin to English.

Getting There:

Our representative will make you wait at the airport. The bus to the hotel runs along the lake shore. Soon you will feel pleasure in passing water. You will know that you are getting near the hotel, because you will go round the bend. The manager will await you in the entrance hall. He always tries to have intercourse with all new guests.

The hotel:

This is a family hotel, so children are very welcome. We of course are always pleased to accept adultery. Highly skilled nurses are available in the evenings to put down your children. Guests are invited to conjugate in the bar and expose themselves to others.. But please note that ladies are not allowed to have babies in the bar. We organize social games, so no guest is ever left alone to play with them self.

The Restaurant:

Our menus have been carefully chosen to be ordinary and unexciting. At dinner, our quartet will circulate from table to table, and fiddle with you.

 Your Room:

Every room has excellent facilities for your private parts. In winter, every room is on heat. Each room has a balcony offering views of outstanding obscenity! . You will not be disturbed by traffic noise, since the road between the hotel and the lake is used only by pederasts.


Your bed has been made in accordance with local tradition. If you have any other ideas please ring for the chambermaid. Please take advantage of her. She will be very pleased to squash your shirts, blouses and underwear. If asked, she will also squeeze your trousers.

Above all:

When you leave us at the end of your holiday, you will have no hope. You will struggle to forget it."

RUMInation -- Songs from Ally McBeal II

Aft listenin' to the 30songs, my mind still could NOT remember what was that TITLE that had been circling around fro some dyas. Never mind, I envy this actor-bloke ROBERT DOWNEY Jr. for his ability to "duet" with Vonda Shepard so like TWO PEAS IN ONE POD/(pot?), in "Chances Are"

, via:

I have rarely posted sopo posts aft GE13 because There is NO INCENTIVE/MTOTIVATION. UMNO remains domineering and so predicatable -- RACIST to the innermost core of its anatomy already much smeared and smellin' like SH*T!
 Remember I said I would migrate? =-- taking home minister Zahid Hamidi's call to others to migrate "if you no like the electoral system here/hear!" Well, I often do -- to RUMI-nation!:) If Zahid don't like it hear, GE THE HERE OUT OF HELL! He garnered the highest number of votes lust Saturday among six contenders for UMNO VP -- God save us from UMNO-oh-No!

I like the lawyer series ALLY McBEAL because it entertains. Yes, it's now relaxing time/dime for DEsi to catch up on the movies and TV series I miss'd spending too mush ti8me on Sopo blogging -- and seemingly getting nowhere to "UBAH" the gomen in Putrajaya. Now I focus on writHing my first NOVEL which I hope can make it to the small, if knot that, BIG screen! Hope springs eternal in all people fighting for CHANGE!

Ally is wacky, the sory lines are well plotted wit WIT and HUMOUR and some lines that seem'd to come out of my DDC. (If thou knowest knot what DDC is, don't ask b4 I aRsEk you to join Zahind to get the here out of Hell! Hey, Desi is also capable of hitting the low notes on whackiNURSE, OK!

One song from Ally McBeal's TV serial -- ow off the air for some time now, SIGH, sigh!...-- was recentl playing intermittently in my mind, and my cells must have gone greyer, I could NOT tell what the title was. Son Sundaes being one of my teenage foods plus now grownup time for REFLECTION, I googled for Ally McBeal/Vonda Shepard, and it leads me to wikipedia's entract viz:)~~~~~

Songs from Ally McBeal is an album by Vonda Shepard released in 1998 as a soundtrack for the American television series Ally McBeal.
It reached number three in the UK album charts and was a success in the US, Canada and many European countries too. The song "Searchin' My Soul," co-written by Shepard with Paul Gordon, was used as the Ally McBeal theme tune, and an earlier version had been featured on one of Vonda Shepard's previous albums, The Radical Light. The majority of the songs, however, are covers of old songs whose lyrics reflected what was happening in Ally's life onscreen.
It peaked No. 1 in Spain for a month in the summer of 1999, thanks to a big promotion in radios, Vonda Shepard shows in Madrid and Barcelona and the TV series, with the album selling more than 500,000 copies. It is a gold record in Poland.

Track listing[edit]

  1. "Searchin' My Soul" (Vonda Shepard, Paul Gordon) – 3:53

I also moved on to YouTube -- bless the Internet agers for making life so ezy to get to one's fave singers/songs, and there is conflicting claims about the TV series' THEME SONG -- Is it IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD as claimed by a Utube number? OR is it ""Searchin' My Soul" ?

Anyway, I jest ENJOY my afternoon snnoze listenin' to a collection of 30 songs from, YES, Ally McBeal's via LINK:

Since I started blogging 8 years ago, I have often used "Insya-Allah4....

Godwilling, Desi may rise at the break of dawn tomorrow to again writHe for his EsteemedReaders' pleasure/displeasure, and chiefly, for my OWN PLEASUE.

So do I stop just because three narrow-minded judges couldn't see the BIG PICTURE of what UNIVERSAL RELIGION is about?

I reproduced an article I sighted in M today, from the well-regarded international paper, THE ECONOMIST:)


Malaysia and monotheism - The Economist

OCTOBER 15, 2013
Do Christians and Muslims worship the same God? It is never hard to find to devout followers of either faith who answer that question with a resounding negative.
Evangelical Christians were dismayed when former United States president George W. Bush welcomed a group of Muslims to the White House with the words: "We see in Islam a religion that traces its origins back to God's call on Abraham. We share your belief in God's justice..."
Actually, the "same God" question is not one that a monotheist can meaningfully ask.
The question does make perfect sense for an atheist (who thinks that all gods are human constructs), for a polytheist, and indeed for a henotheist—a member of a tribe that worships one deity but accepts there may be others.
But for a logically consistent monotheist, God's "sameness" must remain supremely unaffected by the legitimacy of the worship offered by one or other group of human beings.
But that doesn't stop monotheists arguing about the question, and it can cause violence on the streets as well as common-room debates.
A fresh, unhelpful contribution came from a Malaysian appeals court which has just affirmed that non-Muslims must not use the world "Allah" when referring to God in any public context.
This is the latest twist in a saga which began in 2007 when the government banned the use of the word "Allah" — which is the usual word for God in the Malay language — by Herald, a Catholic newspaper.
It also confiscated thousands of copies of the Bible printed in Indonesia which used the word "Allah" for God.
In December 2009, the Kuala Lumpur High Court overturned that ban, and in reaction there was a wave of attacks on non-Muslim places of worship, including Christian churches and Sikh temples.
This week's decision, restoring the ban, was justified by a three-panel judge on the grounds of Islam's vulnerability to conversion efforts by other faiths.
"It is my judgment that the most possible and probable threat to Islam, in the context of this country, is the propagation of other religions to the followers of Islam," said the chief judge, who added that the use of the word Allah was "not an integral part of the faith in Christianity".
The story will not end there: Herald's editor, the Reverend Father Lawrence Andrew, has said he will appeal to the highest court.
Whatever the Malaysian judiciary ultimately decides, it will not stop Christians in the Arabic-speaking world, and in countries where Arabic influence has been strong, from calling on the name of Allah. Go into any traditional church in the Middle East and you will hear the chant: "Quddusan Allah, Quddusan al-Qawi" ("Holy God, Holy and Strong...")
That chant is said to have originated in Greek-speaking Constantinople, but the chances are that people were singing something similar in Semitic languages, of which Arabic is one, for centuries before.
In 2010, as mobs rampaged, Malaysia's opposition leader, Anwar Ibrahim, made a thoughtful comment on the issue. He insisted that Muslims scholars outside Malaysia found the claim to a monopoly on "Allah" absurd.
After all, "Arabic's sister Semitic languages" also used very similar words for the Deity, namely Elaha in Aramaic and Elohim in Hebrew.
"Historical manuscripts prove that Arabic-speaking Muslims, Christians and Jews have collectively prayed to God, the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe, as Allah for over 1,400 years," he wrote in the Wall Street Journal.
When it comes to calming passions on the street, arguments about monotheism may have little impact, but a bit of  broad historical perspective certainly does no harm. - The Economist, October 15, 2013.

So InsyaAllah, I will surive Man's frailty and folly and cntinue to writHe in future, God-abiding! God bless all the *GOoD people on earth ~~ Amen/Amin.

This post is Sundae-Ruminationesque, BUT greAtings from my judge-friendly to BUMmer Desi

should be generously shared, and spread far and wide. Do I include deep? Ah, if only Jac Bisset would come out of the H2Os wet-wet-wet!:););)

 How's your take on this? Surely we need to help the young!
But the young must develop themselves and gain their own destiny.
All the time to go to daddy and mummy makes the child "mindless".
With initiative (and not waste time chasing girls (and the girls boys!)
will help the youth to nurture themselves and get them fresh avenues.

(Translated fro
Because none of us have many years to live, and we can't take along anything when we go, so we don't have to be too thrifty...

Spend the money that should be spent, enjoy what should be enjoyed, donate what you are able to donate, but don't leave all to your children or grandchildren, for you don't want them to become parasites who are waiting for the day you will die!!

Don't worry about what will happen after we are gone, because when we return to dust, we will feel nothing about praises or criticisms. The time to enjoy the worldly life and your hard earned wealth will be over!

Don't worry too much about your children, for children will have their own destiny and should find their own way. Don't be your children's slave. Care for them, love them, give them gifts but also enjoy your money while you can. Life should have more to it than working from the cradle to the grave!!

Don't expect too much from your children. Caring children, though caring, would be too busy with their jobs and commitments to render much help.

Uncaring children may fight over your assets even when you are still alive, and wish for your early demise so they can inherit your properties and wealth.

Your children take for granted that they are rightful heirs to your wealth; but that you have no claims to their money.

50-year old like you, don't trade in your health for wealth by working yourself to an early grave anymore... Because your money may not be able to buy your health...

When to stop making money, and how much is enough (hundred thousands, million, ten million)?

Out of thousand hectares of good farm land, you can consume only three quarts (of rice) daily; out of a thousand mansions, you only need eight square meters of space to rest at night.

So, as long as you have enough food and enough money to spend, that is good enough. You should live happily. Every family has its own problems. Just do not compare with others for fame and social status and see whose children are doing better, etc., but challenge others for happiness, health, enjoyment, quality of life and longevity...

Don't worry about things that you can't change because it doesn't help and it may spoil your health.

You have to create your own well-being and find your own place of happiness. As long as you are in good mood and good health, think about happy things, do happy things daily and have fun in doing, then you will pass your time happily every day.

One day passes without happiness, you will lose one day.
One day passes with happiness, and then you gain one day.

In good spirit, sickness will cure; in a happy spirit, sickness will cure faster; in high and happy spirits; sickness will never come.

With good mood, suitable amount of exercise, always in the sun, variety of foods, reasonable amount of vitamin and mineral intake, hopefully you will live another 20 or 30 years of healthy life of pleasure.

Above all, learn to cherish the goodness around... and FRIENDS... They all make you feel young and "wanted"... without them you are surely to feel lost!!

Wishing you all the best.
