Kah Cheng

KAH CHENG n. bum (pronounced ka-czerng)

Public display of passionate emotion is now regarded as unMalaysian and punishable by law with some recent High Court ruling. A Chinese couple have been charged for breach of Malaysian morality laws. The couple will return to court in June to face indecency charges, and if convicted may face a year in jail! That is the price for public hugging and kissing.

The court has effectively introduced a slippery slope debate. If public displays of affection are not allowed, then we must also ban:

(1) Cinemas (public place) that show movies with couple hugging and smooching (affection)
(2) Victory hug (affection) in mixed sex sporting event (public place)
(3) Some aunty picking up baby from the pram (in public area) and planting a kiss on the baby's cheek (affection)
(4) Ban all adverts (public domain) that show couples looking at each other in a seductive way (sexual affection)

Where do we draw the moral line? Are we a confused nation or what...

Thank you for the Easter break. Sisuahlai needs one after reading this news.
