I am not in the habit of posting, er, obscenities, those sort of things.
But I am a little bothered by this (see picture).
Unless, of course, things have changed and a certain P-word is acceptable in normal lingo -- as in you wouldn't mind if I pepper my conversation with this word...
I'm not sure how long Pantai Towers have been changed to Pant.t Towers. I was driving along Lorong Bukit Pantai yesterday (Friday May 7), happened to slow down because the car in front of mine was slowing down, looked to the right and, gasp....saw it. I thought my eyes were playing tricks on me -- or the morning sun, or...
Perhaps I am so old-fashioned, so conservative. So far behind time.
Heck...I maybe the only one to be somewhat shocked by the word blazing at the entrance of this apartment building.
This P-word is probably now so acceptable that it has been an accepted name of these residential units.
I remember these apartment units as Pantai Towers, located next to the Pantai Nursing Hostel on Lorong Bukit Pantai (off Jalan Bukit Pantai of THE Pantai Hills in KL).
They were pretty upscale those days. Still are, I imagine, because they are located around PANTAI (no name change yet) Hills and Bangsar.
Pantai Towers have been around for some 30 years, I believe.
Given that it's been renamed to Pant.t Towers, I guess these are no longer residential units. If they are, then the residents (and management) are absolutely fine with the new name.
So, do tell your mailman about this change of name!
Sign of the times...
If people are okay with it....then, I'd best mind my own business.
