Ceridak (pronounced as che-ghi-dak)
The closest meaning I could get to in Malay is ‘selekeh’. It’s a Sarawakian word best used to describe the woman in the para below. As narrated by my senior doctor. A true story.
A lady in her late twenties came to the Emergency Department with a bizarrely strange complaint. She told the doctor who attended her case that she was there because her colleagues at work had been complaining to her saying that they couldnt stand the smell coming from her.
Random thoughts #1 : How do you think the EMERGENCY department can help you with the smell? Why didnt she go to the GP in the 1st place? Oh well.. maybe she couldnt get an appointment.
Random thoughts #2 : There is a strong whiff of odour, but where is it coming from? I wonder whats causing it?
The lady went on with her story saying that her vagina has been itching for a very long time and has had discharge coming from it. Naturally, the doctor proceeded in checking it out and instructed the lady to undress waist down behind the curtains, while she went to get a chaperone.
The doctor and chaperone both returned to a very nauseating room. No amount of air freshener could ever mask the very very stenching smell!
The ‘euw culprit’ was identified. What do you think it is? The clue is in her being ‘ceridak’.
