It all started yesterday, when I couldn’t move my head and my neck starts to hurt. I survived the whole day trying to not be cranky. The next morning, I couldn’t get up and the pain on my neck was excruciating. I couldn't turn to the left and can barely turn to the right without cringing.
The initial plan was to go back to work after my doctor’s appointment. I mean, a creak in the neck could not posibbly mean anything right? I was expecting a referral to a chiropractor for a simple twist of the neck.
Instead, to my shock, I was given a jab on the butt (My first probably since I was a kid?) and medication. According to the doctor, it has nothing to do with pillows when I told her that I thought it was only a case of what Malays call ‘Salah Bantal’. She gave me an MC when I was not asking for it. She urged me to go home and rest and discourage me from going to work as it will further worsen my condition.
So I went back home and change into my pjs and slept the butt jab off.
By the way, I know it was supposed to be good for me but I felt weird lying back exposing the tender flesh of my toosh to the doctor, who was thankfully a lady.
Anyway... if you are curious about the title of this post, I came across it when I was indulging in day time tv. I was surfing channels and I eventually switched on Hitz.FM and was briefly watching this local ‘talent’s’ hip hop music video. The artist’s name is Caprice (Wait... I thought that was a bikini mode or someone like that.) and one of the lines in the song was ‘shake what yo momma gave ya yo!’.
Okay I added on the yo at the end, maybe... it might have just been in it... I can barely understand what he was saying.
But message was duly relayed through the images of Chinese ladies in skimpy clothings ‘menggoncang apa yang Mak diorang bagi’ on the video. There was even a fancy car shot with the Caprice fella in it.
I don't know, that’s just tasteless video making for me. Plus, all the duds, the fancy rides, the girls and the bling is just not Malaysian. We’re not talking about the US of A here – la.
I remembered during my younger days, there was this one hip hop video which I liked by Poetic Ammo mainly because it has this whole local touch. There was no made up ladies getting jiggy with it and no fancy cars.
I forgot what that song was called. But respect yo!
