Funny Banana

There’s this colleague of mine. She’s in a different department but we sit close by to each other and she always say that even though she can’t see me at my place she can always tell whether I’m around or not because she claims she can hear my voice all the way from her place which is an absolute rubbish I tell ya. I’m not that loud. Hehehe…

So anyway, we call her Banana. Banana is happily married to an American boy (I say “boy” because I swear he doesn’t look a day above 20!). Banana is one of the funniest women I have ever met. She’s witty and always comes up with funny stories and one-liners that could really crack you up. An asset to have when you’re having a dull day at the office.


Story 1

It was raining cats and dogs one day and Noobs, another colleague of mine who is in the same department with Banana got spooked when she saw lightning and heard thunder at her work station. She then had asked Banana what was the word that we Moslems would say everytime we see lightning (which would be “Astaghfirlahalazim” of course) and Banana with a straight face said, “Whoa?”

That woman is definitely going to Hell. Hahahahahaahahahahaaha…Sorry Banana...

P/s : Banana is Malay btw…hehehehe

Story 2

There were few spots available for senior executive positions and Noobs’ boss had asked her to apply for the position. In a way it’s actually a promotion for Noobs. Noobs had some reservation and was not too keen to apply because she said there’s no way the Management was going to promote her and all. So my dear friend Banana told Noobs to just apply for the position because you'll never know what could happen. Conversation between Noobs and Banana below :-

Banana : Have you applied for the position yet?

Noobs : Haiyoo…Dunnolah can get or not. I don’t wanna get disappointed. Put my hopes up and then tak dapat. Frust jer.

Banana : Iskh budak ni. Just apply and taubat (repent) jer lah.

Noobs : Huh? Taubat? *Looked puzzled*

Banana : Ermm…not taubat issit? I know that word starts with a “t”.

Noobs : Heheheheheheh…U mean TAWAKAL (leave it to fate) issit?

Banana : What? Tawakal?? Cannot be! Isn’t that the name of the hospital? Hospital Tawakal? Is that what the name of the hospital means? How can you name a hospital “Tawakal”? Meaning when people send their sick relatives or family members to the hospital, the doctors and nurses will say, “We won’t do anything, you people can just leave the sick people here and just tawakal that they’ll get well” issit?

Noobs : Haiyooo Banana! *Laughed so hard until tears start to come out. Sher pun gelak gila sampai terguling-guling jatuh kerusi*

That’s our darling Banana for ya!

miss banana said...

haha, sher, are you saying that the Malay race is screwed if I was the "perempuan melayu terakhir"? :-)

luckily, i have a sense of humour. unlike some of the people out there..

Cosmic_GurL said...

Ms. Banana - Ack!!! U did read my blog! Of course not!! There is no "perempuan melayu terakhir" nowadays anyway. Those women lived only in "Zaman Kesultanan Melaka" I think.
Hehehe..yeah, u do have a sense of humour darlin' and thats why i adore ya :p

princesswaffzonkle said...

zuhri said...

[Is]landa said...

hey, i was driving around mont kiara the other day and right behind me there was this white volkswagen bug that looks exactly like the herbie on tv. complete with the number 38 on its hood. and stripes and what nots. i thought i was hallucinating. it had a selangor plate number though.

i thought of u, then. cause ur old car was named herbie, right?

Cosmic_GurL said...

Zuhri - Aik? U mean theres no one to entertain u at the office. Kesian. Hehehe...I don't think the cloned Banana would be as funny as the real Banana u know :p

Ylanda - Nah, that aint my Herbie. But wow! Cool eh no. 38 some more. Incidently, was the driver hot looking? Hehehe

princesswaffzonkle said...

cosmicgal:
No lah, that's called a vet ;P

kepala_angin said...

i think every office needs one Banana to help other from going bananas from the stress of working. hehehe

p/s: thank you for coming over to my place.

disco-very said...

hehe. it's always good to have colleagues like that around. my own 'Banana' looks perpetually stoned which makes things even harder for me to suppress the giggles.

Cosmic_GurL said...

Princess - Hahahahaha!

Kepala Angin - No worries. u write good stuff :)

Disco-very - But she/he is not really stoned, is she/he?

[Is]landa said...
