Malaysian Big Foot

TUA KA adj.,n. big foot

Sisuahlai's take on The Star: Researcher finds "Big Foot" trail

Big foot in Hokkien, tua ka, actually means a big player. Like a big, influential player in a multi-million transaction. Or an important person making an, erm, important decision.

So when some Malaysian researcher found a suspected Yeti trail, purely on the grounds that some heavy plants got uprooted, I just ponder...

DID A KUCHING BIG FOOT DO THIS?


YES, probably some tua ka contractor.

Sisuahlai.

I think the proper term would be Sasquatch. A Yeti is that abomi(something) snowman thing in the Himalayas. Big unknown human-ish creature... same difference la. Nevermind.
