What is Abam ?


Since last year I notice Malay male referring themselves as 'Abam' in their FB timeline post. At first I thought its their 'calling name'. But then it not just one. Here 'Abam' and there ' Abam'. All different people referring themselves as 'Abam'.




I want to ask friend but most close friend is Chinese. Owhhh! they will laugh at me if I ask them that question. I am the one suppose to know this. haihhhhh....

The introvert me then use the usual way. Just google the word.


The result show me that! I was like....WHAT???? You mean those people has been referring themselves 'Abam' ...and that 'Abam' means is one of those? Cannot be...right? It just doesn't make sense to me. goshhh!!!

I need to solve this mystery tonight or I can't sleep tonight. It was on Sunday night by the way.I need to find out. Best Malay connection is my 2 sisters. Posted in our usual 'Kakaotalk'

Me : Girls! may I ask a question?

Last Sis : Yes. 

Me : Do you all have Malay male friends who refer themselves as 'Abam'?

Last Sis : No! Why?

Me : I noticed many Malay male blogger friend refer themselves as 'Abam'. Then when I google the meaning of 'Abam' , the result just doesn't make sense to me.


 I then post the the screen shot of my google result.



 Last Sis : Hahahahaha...so funny! You mean they call themselves that?

Goshh!!! thought I am bad but she is at the same page too.

Third Sis : Ohhhh...'Abam'? Last year I notice many Malay male friends refer themselves as 'Abam' too but I mistakenly thought as 'Apam' (Apam is the name of some traditional cakes). Then I laugh at those fella who call themselves 'Apam'. Then notice there are so many 'Apam' around. hahahahahaha..weird! So many call themselves as 'cakes'?

Me : hahahahahaha...'Apam'? worst than me! Ya lorrrr..so weird.

Last Sis : 'Apam'? hahahahaha...so funny the call themselves 'Cakes' . 'Abam' ? 'Apam'? cannot use proper name to refer themselves ar?

Third Sis : I asked them why refer themselves as 'Apam'. I got laugh big time by those people. Haihhhh...

Third Sis : Then they explained its actually 'Abam' . It means 'Abang' (Brother) and shorten it to make it sounds more unofficial and friendlier then call themselves ' Abam'.

Me : Owhhhhhh!!!! 'Abam' is actually mean 'Brother'? huh!

Last Sis : Ohhhhhh!!! like that also can ar?


Now I can sleep! At least some answer and yet still doesn't make sense from 'Abang' to 'Abam'. Why?  Too many 'Abam' around too.

Different between Rebonding and Keratin Treatment

Frizzy Hair Solution Naturally, I born wavy and wild frizzy hair. I hate that frizzy hair style. It make me look untidy and less attractive. WTH! Don't throw up please!!!! The only solution to my knowledge all this while is rebonding hair treatment. I have been doing this almost every year. I am worried about getting my hair ironed every year. Gosh! I am not getting anymore younger so does my hair. How long this poor hair of mine can stand that heavy chemical treatment coated on and flat iron it with the heat straightening iron. Even my neck almost drop putting up with the long hours procedures. I was invited to try out Keratin Treatment at A Cut Above. I am glad to finally try this out. I love the end result very much and the process is simple than rebonding. Like I said earlier my desire result is to tame my untidy frizzy hair. Not really about straightening the hair. So which one to choose? Rebonding or Keratin? Hair Rebonding * Suitable for those who have ve

If you on your feet a lot and do lots of sports, this can hit you too.This pain caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch.  I got mine last year after came back from Taiwan trip in April 2016.

How to Buy the Right Bra ?

Who doesn't? My most favourite shopping items are clothing and beauty care. There is one thing will give me an eerie and heavy heart if you even give me free shopping money for this item. Bra! For such a small item of clothing, bras are the hardest task for me.  First of all, I have bad experience shop for my own bra a long time ago. My perception, the salesperson who man the bra section mostly aunties who just care about the commission. Unlucky me always met the sales person who will criticize my 'poor boobies'. I have experienced one salesperson scoop up my 'boobies' just to check on my size. WTH! Super rude! I was taken aback at that time. Immediately made a 'U-turn' and never return. I was so puzzled and confused at that time. Why sh
