The Three Malady Of A Man

On Saturday ago, when I accompany and entertaining best customers at a nightclub, I met my two best friends there. Then we gathered together at the bar, ordering beers and then... Cheers! Ha..ha... very enjoyable to drink together with friends, especially with the atmosphere full of music, lots of beautiful night worker ladies, spreading their charm, cheerfulness and smile (maybe just theatrical smile from the sadness heart, I think). My wife knows it so I don't have to worry ha..ha...(Psst... I said this is business interests).

While chat together, one of friends asking me an interesting question, and our chat are as below (translated in English):
Friend : "Tikno, did you know the three malady of a man? For no.1 and 2, I will pay it for you but for no.3... I will quit."
Me : "Ha..ha... another temptations. Why you are ready paying for no.1 and 2 but not to no.3? what's that?", I shouted.
Friend : "No.1 is drunkard. Money still safe until sprawl". Immediately other friend shouted "Agree! Let us drunk, we get a sponsor now", ha..ha...
Me : "What is no.2 ?, hope sponsorship again"
Friend : (shouted with loud) "No.2 is playboy!. The money still safe because you will tired at the end of the game". Then we appoint to one another and shouted : "You are playboy!" and everyone laugh with loud ha..ha...
Me : "And... what is no.3, which it make you quit?"
Friend : "No.3 is gambler! All money finished until grass root and the rest only a pants". (Then all roar with laughter).

Hmm... just a light story of the madness male group for the night. After midnight we went home and all illusion has ended. Just temporary pleasure, because the real pleasure was when I arrived at home I saw my wife waiting for me. According to you lady, what is the fourth malady of a man? Surely you have amazing reply. So, be careful man ha..ha...

Pssst ... below is a song that reminds me to the madness night.


  1. hahaha.....I enjoyed those jokes but this part of your writing, I like most:-

    "....because the real pleasure was when I arrived at home I saw my wife waiting for me."

    Home is where your 'Honey' is!

  2. HoneyBUZZ,
    What is the next malady according to you? Say it to men and don't worry.

  3. Mm, Entertaining customers in night club. I like it...

    Sori, gak terlalu pandai english.

  4. sama saja nggak mau keluar uang ya mas... wahaha... kecian yang nomer tiga...

  5. Wkwkwkwk is so very funny. Thank 4 come to my place my friends

  6. what an entertaining post you have here .... Tq for visiting my blog and for the link too

  7. Tikno: Are you working or at least involved in cinema industries?

    Film Asia: I am doing online marketing full-time. I love Asian movies, that's why I setup this blog. It also give me some small income from Adsense.

    I have some small request for you, that is if you have watched any movies in my blog please leave some comment in your free time even if it is a lousy film.

    If you have noticed on my blog I have changed my postings from previous 3 to 10 per page. The reason? I want my readers to have more choice to browse their favorite Asian movies.

    Film Asia

  8. hmm, great pleasure man and nice joking. salam

  10. come to answer ur question tik!
    those web are not expensive, believe me!

  11. that was funny but so true. gambling will bury you alive. thanks for dropping by my blog, TIKNO. =)

  12. Entertaining customers, eh? Well that's the kind of job I would have liked to have myself. Especially if the entertaining could have been executed at the hot spot where one meets one's friends after the customers have passed out .

    I envy you (though I think I would have preferred to have Saturday nights off).

    (On second thought: this of course is a pretty funny post.But actually it's a serious subject you tackle here. With some awkward implications about the mores in business).

  13. Anthony Harman,
    Nomor penyakit yang keberapa yang kamu paling suka?

    Ini bukan masalah uang tapi secara tidak langsung saya ingin memberikan suatu renungan.

    Harry seenthing,
    Sama-sama friend.

    Thank you. Just a link to be ponder.

    Unfortunately watching cinema movie is not my hobby, except for documentary film such as on BBC Knowledge, National Geographic, Discovery Channel, or Animal Planet.

    Paid pleasure!

    Budi Hermanto,
    Yes, I'm lucky man.

    Henny Y.Capretya,
    I will consider.

    Pink Lady,
    Did you knew another malady for a man? Ha.. ha...

    Hmmm... you like it? Maybe no.2 is a fortune number for you, ha..ha... Seems, entertaining customers is the great formula but officially not taught in schools. Right?

    This post is actually about the matter of life but mixed with fun. I see all ladies here not yet say of what's the next malady of a man. Maybe they were afraid get a complaint from you man, ha.. ha...

  14. Hi there my friend, hope your doing well, and I hope your having a great day...

  15. Whoaaa.. it seems that u're a real family man :)

  16. nice joke, but I definitely agree with HoneyBuzz, this part of your post is the best...
    "....because the real pleasure was when I arrived at home I saw my wife waiting for me."
    however..home is the best place and the best remedy for all problems...

  17. Loved the joke too. Thanks for stopping by my blog, and your kind words. Your blog is very nice too :)

Mr. Money is not guilty

This is a special guest post. The grievances and notice from Mr. Money that share it in sorrow to readers. Please read carefully below :

My name is Mr. Money (sometime was called : Dough). My face is just plain, my physical is also weak, but I am able to overhaul the world order.

I'm able to change the behavior even human nature because humans idolize me. Many people change their personality, betray friends, sell their bodies, even abandon their faith, for my sake. That's not my command, note that!

I really do not understand the difference of pious and depraved people, but humans using me as a benchmark, determine rich or poor, honorable or lowly. Blame to human, not me.

I am not devil, but often people do abominations because of me. So I ask for justice who is the real devil.

I'm not the third person to make them divorced or make children and parents quarrel. I beg to the judge to re-examine this case.

It is very clear that I am not God. You must obey your religion forbid…


In this post I only quotes the things associated with the two words above. Please use your sense and read carefully to find and feel the fundamental differences from it.

According to Wikipedia: "A veto, Latin for "I FORBID" is used to denote that a certain party has the right to stop unilaterally a certain piece of legislation. In practice, the veto can be ABSOLUTE (as in the U.N. Security Council, whose permanent members can block any resolution). In the United Nations Security Council, the five permanent members (the United States, Russia, the People's Republic of China, France and the United Kingdom) have veto power in substantive matters, though NOT in procedural ones. If any of these countries votes against a proposal, it is REJECTED, even if all of the other member countries vote in FAVOUR."

According to Global Policy Forum: "The five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States) ENJOY the p…

Messages from golden wedding anniversary

The wedding anniversary was historically derived from Roman empire tradition, where husbands crown his wife with a silver wreath on their twenty-fifth anniversary, and a gold wreath on the fiftieth anniversary. In the present, generally, it called silver wedding anniversary for 25th years of marriage and the golden wedding anniversary for 50th years of marriage. Many people dream of their wedding will be lasting but many of them also fail.

For those of you who dream of it, then there is a philosophical message from a modest golden wedding anniversary, a pieces of dialog between emcee and bride, as follow :

Emcee : (jokingly) "What is the most annoying thing from your husband?"
Bride : "As many as the stars in the sky, unable to count them"
Emcee : (shocked) "Well, but your husband's kindness is also abundant, right?"
Bride : "A little, like the sun in the sky"
Emcee : (curious) "Then why you could live with him for half a century and st…

What a PhD mean for you

What is Ph.D.? Yes, I know it is an academic degree. That's it. No, I think. It's hard to describe it in words. You better focus on the illustration below:

And... the things that made me fall silent is what was said by Matt:
"If you zoom in on the boundary of human knowledge in the direction of genetics, there's something just outside humanity's reach. My wife and I chose to start funding these graduate students after we learned that our son has a rare, fatal genetic disorder. It may be too late for my son, but it's not too late for other children. Even one child suffering is one child too many. The only way to end this kind of suffering is science. And, the best way to do science is through graduate students."
What a beautifull thoughts that touched my heart.
Note: This work is originaly from The Illustrated Guide to a Ph.D. by Matt Might.

STOP the hatred war in the social networking site

Lately, I feel very worried by unscrupulous users of Facebook who already out of the spirit of Facebook motto namely "Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life". Some of Facebook users who use this site only for uploading pornographic images and shared it using private setting to certain people (not shared to everyone) and the other using it for spreading the hatred feelings, like a Facebook Group calling for Obama's death.

Although a very controversial Pages on Facebook namely "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" which it created by Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris has been closed by Facebook after receiving protests from various parties including protests from the Indonesian government, the most recent controversy is the two opposing group on Facebook who mocked each other namely: "Everybody Draw Mohammed day (Indonesian version)" and the other one is "Everybody Draw Jesus day (Indonesian version)". As I observed on its la…

Diversity is destiny

Competition between pair Basuki Tjahaja Purnama (known as Ahok) - Djarot Saiful Hidayat and Anis Baswedan - Sandiaga Uno in the Jakarta gubernatorial election has ended. Although the scale of this election is only for Jakarta, this political contestation has a wide influence in Indonesia and gained international attention.

I do not want to talk at length about the first paragraph in this post because I'm sure everyone in Indonesia already knows about the political tension behind it and how its influence to the national unity. I am only interested in conveying the philosophical message to you all in relation to that matter.

Diversity is destiny. So that's destiny if in Indonesia there are Chinese, Balinese, Javanese, Sundanese, Acehnese, Irian, etc. More globally there are white, yellow, black. We can not choose to be born as what tribe or nation. We can not choose to be born in a Muslim, Christian, or Buddhist family. We can not choose to be born in rich family. It is God'…

Capital Punishment Against Bali Bombers

Last night, when I watching TV, I be attracted with the news about capital punishment against the main performers of the Bali Bombings incident. According to "TV One" (one of the Indonesian TV broadcasting), on October 24, 2008 (means today), the Indonesian attorney general will announce the execution plan for them. Faced that announcement, their family will put forward the re-consideration through their lawyer team next week.

Yes, according to the law, they were guilty and must be punished. But the capital punishment is equivalent with splitting the soul from the body. My big question is "Whether these world must have the capital punishment?" I don't know!
