4 am

While look-see look-see at the Friendship Park, i saw this signboard.
Park Opening Hours : 4 am till 12 midnight

Huh? 4 am? Who on earth (with sound mind) would visit this park at the wee hours in the early morning at 4 am ? Wanna See Ghost meh? Ocipala !!

Maybe because the ghosts all needs to enter the park at 4am so that they can spook people ???

angeles said...

No lah... aiyoh... it's for the early risers (like the Yellow Baju Unker who took pics for us last time kkkkk) to do their morning walk la, qi gong la, jogging la, all the ocipala activities maa...

Wah.. what a non-sampat comment! haha.. :P

Chev said...

moz,
hahahhahha...
so ocipala geh?
where are the ghost busters? :P

angeles,
hahahha, u still remember the yellow baju unker :P

4 am woh? it's dangerous to walk around in such early hours in the dark leh. At least wait till 6 am mah if wanna exercise or morning walk. Hehehheh...

*Touch Angeles' forehead to ensure she doesn't have fever, since she left such a non-sampat comment* LOL

mistipurple said...

scary leh. must bring glow worm. *sampat also*

alexander said...

hahaha... Interesting post.
I agree with Angeles.
Or maybe it is for the ""very late-early" visitors.

Cocka Doodle said...

4 am is for the 'kreta rosak' couples lah after their clubbing...liddat also dunno meh?

letti said...

some one's gotta explain to me what OCIPALA means. I'm that dense.

stay-at-home mum said...

Aiya, the early birds that want to go to do their qi gong, la!

yenjai.net said...

agree 100% with cocka
Didn't you see the name as 'friendship' Park?
^-^

chen #1 said...

HI. what is ocipala ha?

letti said...

is ocipala like got nothing better to do ah? LOL

_butt said...

I think 4am is for the park maintenance people gua :P

Chev said...

misti,
glow worms? wah..
must catch more fireflies liao and put it inside a glass bottle.
LOL

alex,
Hahahha... Might be, but the concern regarding personal safety is more important, with the rising rates of robbery, rape, murder etc.. It is definitely not a wise idea for those health conscious people to go exercise in such wee hours :)

LB,
*checking which dim sum shop opens at 4 am in the morning*

Ah Boy wanna BBBB too :)

Chev said...

cocka,
Haha, i know cocka will come up with such an answer. But it's so unsafe to go to the park in such wee hours.. not scare of robbery, rape and murder ah? The crime rates in Malaysia is on a rising trend leh :)

letti,
Hahahha, hard to explain the exact meaning of ocipala leh. Many people asked me the same question liao. it's close relative of the slang "chapalang" :D

stay at home mum,
These early birds should be more concern about their safety than their health liao. At least do lah exercise later in the morning, such as 6 am when there are more people mah :P

Chev said...

yenjai,
With the rising crime rates, that is not a wise move leh. Btw, the origin and the meaning of the name Friendship Park is available here in my previous post - to commemorate the friendship between Malaysia and China. Not the ocipala stuff like what u thought lah. Kekekkekek

*Piak Yenjai with Lokam*

chen,
Hahahha, ocipala is ocipala. It carries similar meaning as chapalang. A mixture of everything. LOL

letti,
Nope nope nope. Hehehhe, the word ocipala really cracks your head, huh? I've given u the answer liao in the above replies :)

butt,
Kekkekke, so dark.. cannot even differentiate the money notes from paper leh. More ocipala liao. LOLOLOL

Chen said...

errr... how come u can surf net one meh during office hours?

Chev said...

chen,
i'm still on leave leh :P

fibrate said...

Daylight comes early in Sarawak...so 4am probably isn't that early.

Can't help this...those looking for a possible definition of "ocipala" can look here :

Chev said...

fibrate,

Have u visited Satok Market in the middle of the night? I haven't.. only either go there at Sat evening or Sun morning. Wonder how "quiet" is it at midnight time

Heheheheh... after reading your "misleading" post, ppl might mistaken the "innocent" ocipala as a swear word liao.. LOLOLOL

Chen said...

haiyer, u so lucky one, can go long leave some more!

Doreen said...

Who knows leh, may be got ppl want to go there pak toh in the early hours. hehehe

Chev said...

chen,

Chev said...

At that hour, might be can have unexpected encounter and befriend with the 3rd kind liao. Kekekkekeke...

fibrate said...

KittyCat said...

I didn't get to visit it this year coz it kept on raining! Btw...know any good gynaes in Kuching???

Chev said...

kittycat,
Btw, there's nothing interesting there in Friendship Park unless u wanna take a stroll. The huge pond is kinda empty as most of the fishes have R.I.P some time back :(

Yeah, it rained everyday in Kuching, since Day 2 of CNY. Very sien as inconvenient to go around.

Err.. sorry lah. I'm not familiar with the gynae in Kuching.
