Smile, 1Malaysia, you are on candid camera.
The government targets to be among the top 10 countries whose people smile the most in 2010 based on a independent body's findings, said Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, T Murugiah :)
He said several campaigns had been carried to eventually place the nation at the 26th spot this year but that was far short from the position of neighbouring Indonesia which was at number one :)
"I am now in the process to complete the working paper for 'Smile Smile 1Malaysia' and this will be forwarded to the minister before being tabled to the cabinet :)
The working paper will also be closely related to and add value to the concept of 1Malaysia," he told reporters in Ipoh yesterday :)
He said a study conducted by an independent body in Spain revealed that Malaysians smiled more at foreign tourists than local folks :)
And, here's a joke to make you smile:
A nurse was on duty in the A&E when a young woman with purple hair styled into a punk rocker Mohawk, sporting a variety of tattoos, and wearing strange clothing, entered.
It was quickly determined that the patient had acute appendicitis, so she was scheduled for an immediate operation..
When she was completely disrobed on the operating table, the staff noticed that her pubic hair had been dyed green, and above it there was a tattoo that read ..
'Keep off the grass'
Once the surgery was completed, the surgeon wrote a short note on the patient's dressing, which read:
'Sorry . . . had to mow the lawn.'
