Ugly Malaysians 1: How Not To Park Your Car

With much apologies to Malaysians who consider themselves less than attractive (I'm sure you all look fine), this kind of "ugly" refers to their personality in ordinary everyday events.

Anyone who has been to Penang's PC fair in PISA knows that parking lots are scarce and precious, everyone would squeeze into every single available space and sometimes even double park just to get their worth out of the RM2 car entrance fee.

If parking lots were water, this guy just left the tap turned on and forgot to turn it off...

This guy parked his car horizontally and ended up taking four parking lots!

I don't know about you but I feel a tinge of sympathy for someone who drives a rickety first-generation Kancil model. That doesn't excuse the person from parking inconsiderately though. The people in the pic are my friends, we were there from around 2 to 4:30pm but we didn't manage to catch a glimpse of the guy responsible.

In case anyone's wondering, this is how the crowd looked like on Saturday, the second out of three PC fair days.

  1. Someone once parked a car at yellow line at night. Then another car which parked at valid parking reversed and accidentally knock into the car which are parked at yellow lines causing dents and broken front lamp. The driver waited for 5 minutes but no one came to claim the damage. So the driver just drive away.

    By the way, I don't know who that driver is. (whistle away) Ha ha...

  2. well penangites and malaysian are like this, drop by at my blog at this link for more examples, though i think that that kanchil driver broke the record of taking up 4 spaces.
