2. People dont get tired celebrating these festivals compared to stress they find at work
3. The first thing everyone does on 1st of Jan is to create a yearly holiday plan from the HOLIDAY LIST distributed free-of-cost in office
4. Guys in IT enjoy slavery for people whom they kicked outta there country few years back
5. People wait to pull small issues into politics and create mess outta it later on
6. Our currency is Rupees (and sometime native-dollars when NRI's return back from uummm-ricca)

"Divorce by sending SMS"

yes, it is accepted by malaysian syariah court (muslim court)..but the husband to talak his wife through sms will have to pay fine..nevertheless, i find it a disgrace to women and to the marriage itself!
