Song : Deeper Conversation
By Yuna

Update: This post has been editted in response to the following comment. I appreciate the non-agressive manner in conveying the message, imparting that little knowledge of the Jakun tribe and also for not being anonymous. (to me, at least). There’s nothing more bengang than having an anonymous comment on your entries. Pengecut. It was never my attention to use Jakun as something deragatory eventhough it was meant to myself and my sister. Ha ha ha. Pengajaran buat diri.. jangan panggil orang lain Jakun unless you know he/she can take the joke and its an ‘inside joke’ sort of thing.

Maybe we should revise the usage of Mamak as well? Watch Nana Tanjung for further details.

“Dear minci, is it still appropriate to use the word ‘jakun’ to describe amazement / primitive minded ?

Jakun is one of the many tribes among the aborigines of Malaysia. A Jakun is thus considered to be primitive though some Jakuns has been known to make it good in education and economics. The use of the word on other people not of a Jakun tribe is thus considered deragotory.”

 Sony Ericsson  

Sis Ninci purchased a new Sony Ericsson over the weekend. A red W 660i. Very pandai phone cause it’s equipped with this Tune IT thingy that is able to tell you the name of a particular song if you put it near the speaker. So, memang pandai or I yang baru tahu? Again..

Because its a sibling mobile photo, I thought I’d switched from using my faithful flippy Samsung to a Sony.

I was amazed to be able to receive MMS and even use the video call with my Sis. Ha ha. Then we sent music tracks to each other using bluetooth. Wow. A whole different thing and I’ve had Sony in my possession for like what.. a year tops.

Lesson for today : To identify the strength that you have and use it to its fullest potential.

Now you’re with me, a big fan of Sony Ericsson. Ekceli, speaking about that music recognition function, I was a little bit jakun too! I was first introduced to that alien technology when my friend recorded a piece length of an unknown song from my speaker and send it online. There you go, a song by Taking Back Sunday entitled… hmm.. dah lupa dah.

I was thinking about the same thing too.

Minci, ko tauk sik sidak malaya nang sik tauk apa2 tentang sidak sarawak. Sidak nya padah kitak orang diam atas pokok.

“Apa lah kawu!! Kedak orang iban jak ku nangga!” Tolong translate dlm bahasa Kuala Lumpur untuk lebih efek.
