{October 5, 2008}   You are a true Sabahan when…

You are a true Sabahan when…

1) You drive at right lane of the road, with a speed of only 50KM/H. If people horn behind you, you still don’t know what’s wrong.
2) You have the luxury of working from 8 AM to 5 PM (get off work punctually).
3) You don’t believe that there is any “clean” politician in Sabah.
4) You feel “obligated” to reach the top of Mount Kinabalu at least once in a lifetime.
5) You prefer a big car than a big house (probably you can’t drive a big house around to show off).
6) You wear slipper and short wherever you go, even in city.
7) You still think that Labuan belongs to Sabah.
8.) You will not go to any FREE seminar / function that has no food or refreshment.
9) You don’t care about service. You just want things cheap, cheap,cheap.
10) You know where to get your candles and torch light quickly in the total darkness (due to training by frequent blackout).
11) You know what “aramaitiee” means…
12) You shout “referee bodoh” and at the same time throw mineral water  bottles on the pitch during a football match at Likas Stadium..
13) Your Timorese maid ran away with her lover, taking your moneyor jewellery along..
14) You doubt someone’s mykad wether it is real or fake..
15) Your favourite assemblyman whom you vote and supported all this while…gambled away and lost a whopping 60 million ringgit in a London casino..
16) You go inside a karaoke at 12 pm and realise that the place is still open at 5 am…
17) You come across a supposedly local person but with a very foreign accent..
18) You cannot vote in an election because someone has voted onbehalf of you…
19) You own a bakakuk
