Melayu benci betul babi. Dan anjing. Kalau ada ada hybrid babi-anjing, mesti ramai yang mula sangka hari kiamat dah dekat.
Malays despise pigs because it is haram. Ask any malays and you fill find out it is extremely rare to find malays who have eaten pork.
Well. I've eaten pork. The first time was when I exchanged bekal with my childhood bestfriend Jason Ng. The second was when a newspaper company pager bought me pau with pork fillings because he forgot that I'm a muslim. The third time was when I was in Bali, the stall owner told me that his Bakso is halal. I ate his bakso for 5 days until I found out that his idea of halal is when the animal is slaughtered. He slaughtered the pigs he used to make his meatballs.
Strangely enough, eating pork is the most revered haram thing to us. Here's a ranking of OUR list of very haram things.
1. Makan Babi.
2. Jaga atau pegang anjing
The rest of haram acts are treated as if they are makruh like:
4. Minum alkohol (perfume beralkohol bolehlah ngok!)
dan banyak lagi...
This is a very malay thing. We can have sex with our girlfriends, drink at clubs, gossip with our friends, give RM39.40 to the Polis trafik, play sms 4D (check your Metro newspaper) but eating pork? Oh hell no!
Don't you find this revelation weird?
Why do we hate babi so very much that it literally trumps every other sins?
And yet we use the word babi so very often in our conversations like Babilah, gila babi, babi! babi... babi betol! etc.
