VVIP scared of being kidnapped? so they put up with their antics for coming late?


Yes, in Malay wedding....all people tend mingle around regardless of their status, etc.

the VIP thinks they are the special ones....that could afford to be late.

Reminds me of the politicians or vips among the govt. Normally, they arrive late at events, and they are the first to leave pulak...
How can these ppl be late? since they oredi have police escort that open jalan all the way for them???

Double standard? or they forgot to wear their Rolex watches to tell time??:banghead:

Typical mama boy......

Next time, the mother is gonna be in the same room during the 1st night of her son's marriage....
Supervising various "stance" to use on bed....hahahaha
u said it... it is Pak Lah.. i never liked him as he is always late.

There was an incident.. where i went to a function where he is the VIP guess..

so i waited also i was rushing to go somewhere... as i waited while listening to kids (guest who brought their kids) crying bcoz they are hungry. at 2PM Pak Lah came... i was like syukur can eat already la... n then the MC said "Pak Lah going to speak on stage"

I WTF n terus chiao.... no need to eat there sure long speech also i am rushing to somewhere urgent..

Pak Lah did the 2nd same thing during Robert Rainford (some boring BBQ celeb chef to me as he eats satay at Singapore not Malaysia), there was an episode where Robert Rainford came to Malaysia and the food was ready but they cannot serve bcoz the VIP was late. Robert Rainford was furious and want to serve to the people 1st but bcoz of protocol cannot... so then they showed the VIP came (with police car). The show never showed who... the dinner which was at 8PM to 9PM started at 10PM bcoz of VIP. This episode is banned later... sad i did not record it.

Thanx to majority of the people n the internet, it was Pak Lah.. honestly i avoid if he is the guest.

Appointment don't work these days.

Are people today don't care, not serious about keeping appointment? Or they dont have a sense of timeliness?

I have sat in for job interview on behalf my boss for the past 2 days. 50% of the shortlisted candidates either come late, some ill prepared for the interview and some even cancelled the interview last minute...What a bunch of time wasters....

Anyone here facing such problem?
It's the norm in many Malaysians and this is a shameful mindset indeed. While there are some job candidates who are late, I also hate the hiring person starting the interview very late. There was once an interviewer let me waited for an hour before he comes in.

Ken, you hiring people ka? :biggrin: me me me *Ahem*

Timing in Malaysia is mostly due to mindset. Thinking they can beat the traffic or not considering it at all. Or like the typical Chinese wedding dinner - the mindset is "aiya everyone else will be late, why must we be early?".
Yes..and the ones who suffer the most are the receptionist...gotta wait until at least 80-90% then only can go to the eating table.

Consider lucky that you have not met those who come interview with their mum or dad. (usually mum)
They will sit in the interview room and get interviewed together with the son.

To me, if u need your mum to accompany you for interview, means u r not ready to even come to work or do anything big on your own..
Later need OT time, complain to mum, mum come and see the boss on why making the son OT.

:laugh: Some parents really dunno what is in their skull.

On side note, I'm always on time for appointments/date hahaha! (Unless stated I'll be late) :biggrin:
If I encounter parents who accompany their child to an interview, I'll prepare two forms for both of them to fill in. If milf then I'll interview her first. If dick then I'll call security.

For Wedding usually will be on time but have to wait an hour plus for the other guests to arrive. The best I like is when the late comers arrive and got no place, then one seat here and one seat there....hahahhahaha

To ensure punctuality, the wedding reception should use electronic counter....to dispense table ticket number to guests....

First comers, get better seats...
Late comers, get to seat behind column or near toilet...hahahahah

One not only wasting their time being late but also the other person's time. Very selfish thing to do.

Just back from outstation 2 days back, and you are right. Once traffic builds up many use emergency lane.....:banghead:
This actually makes traffic worst, because when they force cut back into main traffic, slows down even further...

That is right, bro vr2turbo..

not to mention also those jokers that travels on the fast right lane, then suddenly swerved to let most lane to exit the main road....

This action caused all traffic on the main road to slow down for this joker and selfish driver....
