Siapa Makan Cili, Dia Terasa Pedas

May 6th, 2010 (09:13 pm)

Dear Diary,

And so, there are some who took offence to a status on Facebook that I'd put up more than twenty-four hours ago. How interesting that so many seem to think it was directed at them; but the ones whom it really was meant for do not even have a clue (or maybe they pretend not to). Very interesting indeed.

You know, there is a Malay proverb that goes somewhere along the lines of, "Siapa makan cili, dia terasa pedas". This can be literally translated to, "He who consumes cili will feel its...spiciness(?)". So go figure.

And a disclaimer please. I'm not trying to insinuate anything. You guys just made yourselves guilty by reading too much into a paragraph and/or presuming it was directed at you.

I've had my say, and I'm going to try my best to leave it at that. You know where to get me once you've regained enough graciousness to apologise.
