what ‘pundek’ means…

Before you proceed to read the transcript below, you’re required to know the following words beforehand….
– ‘cheebye‘ : Hokkien for vagina, cooter, beaver, pussy, etc.
– ‘lancheow‘: Hokkien for penis, dick, weiner, schlong, etc.
– ‘lampah‘: Hokkien for testicals, nutsack, balls, ballsack, etc.
– ‘pundek‘: Tamil for cheebye.
– ‘puki‘: Tagalog for cheebye

Note: Those words are the most commonly used profanities in the general Malaysian public today. If you don’t know any of these words, you should probably fucking get a lobotomy.

The following conversation took place at Company X messenger today, between myself and a female colleague (FC) of mine. It’s a discussion about our everyday profanities. Those of you pansy ass who knows nuts about local profanities, you’re strongly encouraged to peruse this dialog with utmost scrutiny…

FC: u busy ke?

Michael: not really, why?

FC: so r u still feeling lazy?

Michael: yeah, that explains the reply ‘not really’. i have a lot of work, but i’m not busy.

FC: haha

Michael: what abt you? free?

FC: ya quite free that’s why reading ur blog can’t reamember when was the last time i read it. think was last year

Michael: pundek

FC: wat pundek i dun have one

Michael: you don’t have pundek?? then what do you have lar?? lampah?

FC: thought that one is for guy

Michael: pundek is Tamil for cheebye

FC: u serious?

Michael: yes i am. ask your indian friends.

FC: i i alwasy thought it’s a guys one

Michael: no ler. guys one is called lancheow. or lampah also can.

FC: that one is chinese lah. then indian one leh? call wat?

Michael: tamil for lancheow i don’t know

FC: hahaha

Michael: i figured, if i want to describe a dick to an english illiterate Indian chick, i’d just whip out my lancheow, she’d understand. I can’t whip out a cheebye, can I? That’s why i only learned the word – pundek

FC: ahahhahah ok now i know pundek is girls one

Michael: good good.

FC: oh yeah i have gal fren thought puki is for guys. she is liek 26 ys old, only recently she learn that puki is for gals

Michael: what the fuck??

FC: ahahhah we laughed at her

Michael: does she even know herself has one??

FC: ya i asked her whther she has puki. she looked at me one kind n said i was crazee.

Michael: maaan. is there really still such people on this planet? act innocent kot?

FC: well she knows what is cheebye. but she interpreted puki as the guy part

Yeah, we’d all be fucking damned if we guys have puki.

Just remember, people, if you don’t know or unsure what a certain profanity word means, you better ask around. You don’t want to make a mistake like my friend here (and also her friend in this case)… saying things like herself not having a cooter and mistaken their male counterparts as having one… it’ll be tragic.

    I think a lanjiao is called kunji in Tamil.

  2. gorgeous says:

    dick in tamil is commonly known as koteh

  3. nicholas says:

    koteh is in malay right?

    kunji is tamil for lanjiao

  4. MT says:

    What?! Since when is koteh a Tamil word la? Kukuchiao/ lanchiao/ kukubird/ etc in Tamil can either be sunni or kunji.

    For balls/ lampha, normally the “macha’s” will call it “pandhe” Its pronounced PAAN-DH-er. It literally means “balls” :lol:

  5. michaelooi says:

    dr.tan / nicholas – Alright. Now I know…

    ST – oh yeah

    gorgeous – Are you sure?? Kotek is lampah in Malay lah

    MT – I thought pandhee means pig in Tamil?

  6. MT says:

    Dude, pig is “Pandi” as in pronunciation is somethin like dis.


    For “Balls”, its more like “PAAN-duh-r” Very hard to do the whole phonetics thing la! :D Ask some of your Indian friends la. Just ask them how to say “balls” as in football/ basketball ball. That word is what many macha’s will use to describe lampha la.

  7. michaelooi says:

    Very hard to do the whole phonetics thing la!

    Oh well, I guess it’ll be either “You fucking pig” or “you fucking lampah” when I yell at those Hindraf hooligans…

    but I learned something anyway… thanks.

  8. gorgeous says:

    my Indian friends taught me koteh is tamil.

  9. december says:


    all these can be included

    For the less astute of those out there on the finer workings of the Tamil language, let me enlighten you. The normal term used to refer to the male genitalia would be KUNJI, but if you intend to be more colourful in your profanities you could use one of the following in conjunction with the word KUNJI which would be, SAPE, ATTE, WETE, TALAIAH. There are many more additional words which could be used to get that certain message across to your intended victim, but sad to say I just dont have the time to expand further.I have places to go and people to torment.

    Gua caya sama lu….
