FILLER ENTRY : Jawi Bloopers in Kota Bharu



Jawi Bloopers In Kota Bharu


bloop·er ( blupər ) ; [bloo-per] - noun

1. Informal A clumsy mistake, especially one made in public; a faux pas.


BLOOPER No. 1 : For already 35 years or 53 years ?

* Note :

Puzzled ? Need explanation ? Proceed to my previous entry.

Oh, who says that I am only targeting Courts ? He he he ...

BLOOPER No. 2 : Either a typo or a counterfeit by the name " INDOCHAFÉ !

* Note : Indo [ ɪndoʊ ] + café [ kæˈfeɪ, kə- or, Fr. kaˈfeɪ ]


Oh, don't get me wrong.

I have nothing against the above businesses nor problems with Jawi in public.

In fact, it really feels great to have all the billboards and signage around town, especially those put up by big names out there, with messages in bold and big Jawi transliterations (or better, just Jawi) on them. They surely give Kota Bharu, a very unique identity, that perhaps no other cities and towns in Malaysia could match.

But of course, provided that the true purpose is clear (ke arah memperkasa, menjiwai dan merakyatkan tulisan Jawi) and not simply for the sake of obeying the basic requirements set by the local authority.

Long live Jawi !
