FCUK vs F****in

I was FCUK ed!

I have to thank Francis of Kuching Kayaking for explaining in detail what FCUK stands for. I thought that people were trying to justify putting the 'F' word on a T-shirt and sell it as a brand name. I never realised it was already a brand name by itself. It has its own website pointing to French Connection there two websites associated with one as fcuk.com and the other frenchconnection.com).

In fact being not fashion concious can be very embarassing. This was not the first time I came across the 'F' brand and I never gave much thought about it after my first encounter. I have an online Internet gamer lady friend who is in my Fear Knights (my favourite online game) team. She sent me a photo shoot of herself modelling for the local FHM Magazine wearing that 'F' T-shirt a few years back. Initially, I could not help but adviced her on why she should not be wearing that kind of T-shirt. But instead I got an hour's lecture on fashion and what the latest trend in lady wear is. I could not help apologising to her for my lack of awareness in fashion - for me I hang out in the normal Indonesian imported attire which I can get easily at our local Te Kong shop :) Even if I buy gifts for my wife, I stick to perfumes (eew the toilet brands) as its always safer that way, while I stick with Rexona.

Lady Fear Knight - our most feared Elfen Sorcerer in my Kingdom in our online game :)

Now going back to the local front - maybe the FCUK scene may not be so appealing to most people who are in the 35 (particularly Malaysians) and above age brackett, or neither do any good thinking parents would want their children to be overly fashion concious. Being a government servant like myself, it would be a disaster if I go around parading that 't shirt' just to show how fashion concious I am. But I would have to salute the people in my home town Sibu for making things a bit easier for me...and that is to develop a 'Sarawak F brand' and see if it will sell on a T shirt.

You have 39 Units ALONE Jalan Teku (well the brochures said it) ....so i guess it means you get some privacy while you are up and about in F****in Garden?

I will see if I can negotiate with the local entrepreneurs to design and make 'Fockhin' an International brand name which I can proudly display when I walk around in Kuching City or any towns in Malaysia for that matter. Maybe I will start with the 'F***in garden residents first. If I had any extra money, I do not mind owning a piece of property here too. I can tell people to come to my 'F***in' Garden.

Great stuff Sibu developers!! I have to salute you all for your creativity. I would love to have a look at the future development of this area - hopefully there will be a Phase 1 and Phase 2 as the population there grows :)

FCUK is a nice label...nice wordplay. :)

they have a bus decorated with FCUK in melbourne when i was there. i have one...it goes "Too busy to FCUK" and it's black. got it in chadstone.

i prefer quiksilver more, but FCUK has nice taglines.

what online game do you play? i'm kinda addicted (f0r the lack of a better term) to maple story now. i know most people are young girls but it's a fun MMORPG.

My parents bought a house in Pin Fook Garden, Miri. Although we are originally from kuching, I've lived there since I was 8 or 9. I must say it's fookin' nice to be home every time I'm in Miri for a break or meeting.

haha, can't help myself but laugh regarding Fockhin garden!!

Sure lah that FCUK is a play on the F word .. I remember reading about some people who weren't too happy about the play on the word when the clothing label first came out. We know what those letters are supposed to mean.

Can you read this?
