Lau-kui

LAU-KUI adj. embarrassing

Deputy Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak said, "Malaysia will go ahead with the Johor Straits bridge project and hopes that the republic will do the same". He said Singapore could build its part of the bridge to “link up” later. Read 'em and weep on Star Online.

Sisuahlai asks, "How?"

How do you build a bridge if the other side does not agree with the plan?

“We will proceed with the scenic bridge and at the same time hope that talks with the Singapore government will bear fruit so that they can link up with us on their side,” Najib said.

What?!

Najib continued, “Even if we have already technically started work on the scenic bridge, Singapore can still take part in the project.”

Help me out here. How? How do you have "half a bridge"?

In January, Malaysia said it was going ahead with the bridge after talks between the two countries had dragged on without any conclusion. Meanwhile, Bernama reported that Singapore was sending a third party note to Malaysia seeking clarification over a report that “Malaysia had symbolically” launched construction works on the bridge.

Sisuahlai's message to the government: GET AN AGREEMENT FIRST BEFORE BUILDING A BRIDGE, otherwise...

Sisuahlai offers one tip for settling a conflict: paper, scissors or stone.

Actually, there is a misunderstanding on the issue. A lot a people seem to think that the bridge would end in the middle of the straits. In actualit, the bridge will be connected to Singaporean side of the causeway.

See this post by some other blogger.
