Am updating with reader critical input. Two heads are better than one.

Goody. Chan Lilian yesterday uploaded the latest issue of Buletin Mutiara so we have new pictures to play with. However this month’s edition is only 16 pages compared to last month’s 28, hence there are fewer photos to pick from.
Can you believe that the front page has the cheek to carry a banner headline chirping ‘The hills are alive!’ … after Penang’s hills have been raped by developers to build condos? See here.
I’ve completed the hanging sentence by adding alive ‘with the sound of music’.
And more lyrics from the classic Julie Andrews musical: “So long, farewell, auf wiedersehen” … goodbye. “Adieu, adieu to you and you and you”. Bye-bye Penang hills and my green, green grass of home.
Before we go into the June copy of Buletin Mutiara, I found in May’s pictures of some people you know by name.
What’s in the speech bubble?
So, okay. Like Part One on ‘The secret thoughts of Our Beloved Chief Minister‘, I’ve pasted speech and thought bubbles.
(1) Golly! The Dear Leader’s political-secretary looks like a cat who’s just finished a full bowl of cream and licking his whiskers. And Our Beloved Kim is wearing such a bug-eyed expression. Wonder what he’s saying to the guy in blue …
The photos are numbered for your identification if you have any ideas to contribute in the captioning. Below: (2) and (8) from the May issue while the rest are June’s.
Sharp thinking by reader Rahmat Daud who has a valid point. Why does the label say ‘Made in Penang’? See picture (4) below.
Normally labels state the country name: ‘Made in Japan’, ‘Made in Korea’, ‘Made in China’, ‘Made in Indonesia’.
We don’t see labels like ‘Made in Shikoku” or ‘Made in Gangwon’, ‘Made in Liaoning’ or ‘Made in Acheh’.
Why is Kim pointing to ‘Made in Penang’? It should be ‘Made in Malaysia’!
