Lost In Translation

This is copied exactly from the Ministry of Defense website (which has since been removed) on dress code procedures. I'm speechless, not to mention laughing my head off. Remember, this is from the Ministry of Defense, the very people who are sworn to protect this country in times of war or whatever threats. But after reading this, I'm not so sure anymore.

I copy pasted it and removed the pics but the text is exactly as it was on the website. Please do read and see the standards of the people in our ministries!

We're probably the laughing stock of the entire planet. But wait, then again, maybe this is a defensive strategy by the Ministry of Defense people, to make our enemies die from laughter ... Hahaha!

You know, you guys in the government can swindle and cheat the public of their money and yet you can't even hire a god forsaken translator who would charge you a measly RM500-RM1,000 to do a respectable job!


  1. I'm getting a headache reading it! @.@

  2. ahhh so they have removed it pula...i thought someone just making a joke about it cos when i visited the site, there's only the BM version with a note saying, there's no available translation for it. Ha!

  3. Lina - I was laughing so hard, I think I pulled a muscle ... hahaha!

  4. Carol - I don't think it was a joke. This was captured from someone who screen captured their website before it was removed. Somebody seriously needs to brush up on their level of grammar and English!

  5. LOL! This was all over Facebook yesterday - I've run out of fact I've run out of laughter. Nowadays it's more of a horrific reaction to their version of English!

  6. clothes that poke eye! Ouch!
    Thanks for the laughs, Nick :)
