T-Shirts for Couples

Malaysians can be so insensitive sometimes.

It's bad enough that Hani gets stared at by Malay men (who have not learned the art of sneaking a look), but people like the Scarfer and Jordan have to go through the sort of derisive howling that Our Enlightened Countrymen seem to love to subject on apparently ‘morally deficient’ people.

Jordan put up a pretty interesting idea, actually. Get t-shirts to remind other people that the both of you are legally married couples, and that actions like holding hands and displaying affection are perfectly all right. Which just got me thinking…

Why not get a set of t-shirts for the non-Normal, non-Optimal Malaysian couple? Please note that the terms Normal and Optimal are used sarcastically, which means that it's for couples that don't look like the normal sheep Malaysian couples tend to look like. These are for the freaks that deign to walk the same streets with the Normals.


  • A couple t-shirt, with the words, “DAH KAHWIN LAH” in the front, and “WE'RE MARRIED LAH” in the back. (From Jordan's Blog).
  • A baby t-shirt with the words “STOP STARING” or “APA TENGOK?”, right across the chest.
  • A couple t-shirt that says “MARRIED FOR LOVE, NOT FOR GREEN CARD”.

I dunno. They look pretty lame on paper. I wonder how well they'd do.

I'd like one that says "MY GIRL IS HOOOTTTT!!" to be worn by my unfortunate potential other half.

I would actually like one that reads "I actually have a Masters and no, I didn't buy it." OR maybe one that reads "We are in love not in lust."...or maybe...gosh, I could go on and on.

Sexist people could do with "Property of (insert name here)". Two timers could use the bumper sticker model "My other lady is a 20 year old with boobs the size of a cantalope". For feminist "You can look but don't touch". Worried mothers for their daughters "Nice to see, nice to touch, but once broken considered sold"; shotgun wedding anyone? :)

Would you need to produce a marriage license or the testimony of the religious figurehead who officiated your wedding to get those shirts?

What fun! T-shirt suggestions! :D

hyelbaine: “HA! DOSA LAGI. DOSA!”

Jordan and the Scarfer: Here's another one for you folks: “YES, I'VE COME FOR YOUR WOMEN”. >:D


Kervin: Hee hee hee hee. I can think of another: “PRETTY GIRL. TWO BROTHERS. WHO KNOW TAEKWONDO. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED”. I know who that's going to go to. *laughs*

Of course, the brothers could wear something like “WE KILL POTENTIAL SUITORS”.


Hee! Why not have a copy of your marriage certificate emblazoned on your shirt? Hell, you can probably get the local council to certify it as an actual, legal copy… *snickers*
