|the Penang Hokkien word for above is 'goo'|
colloquially 'goo' also means stubborn or obdurate
one can use it as in "looes is very goo", wakakaka
And the unreasonableness of the PJ District Licensing Council was, as reported by TMI, in its ban coming into almost immediate effect, where Chinese medicine shops were informed of the ban only a few days prior to its effective date.
Does the new anti-alcohol ban also apply to bars, hotels and, for example, 7-Up shops in Selangor?
If not, then the ban is obviously directed at Chinese medicine shops, realizing the suspicion that it has, wittingly or otherwise, a racist targeting.

well, where can I get a bottle of brandy, VSOP of course?
try any of the liquor stores, hotels, bars and whatnot in Selangor but not a Chinese medicine shop
The DAP in Selangor has been jumping like a cat on a hot tin roof (or like cacing kena abu) about the unreasonableness and unfairness of the ban, but despite the party holding 15 ADUNs in the Selangor State Assembly, its so-called ally, to wit, the PKR "Royal MB" with his 12 PKR ADUNs, rule the f* day, perhaps in fear of and obsequious servility to the 15 ADUNs of another party,wakakaka.
So DAP in Selangor, suck on it. And its state chairperson seems to ape the "Royal MB" in conspicuous silence on this unfairness.
While my two earlier pithy posts have been on the silence of our beloved "Royal MB" on the unfair trading ban against Chinese medicine shops, as mentioned above, most of my visitors are far more interested in Rosmah's whatever, especially a visitor by the name of looes74 who doesn't know a dong quai from ginseng from a lallang, wakakaka.
Am I then to assume they are
Pakatan PKR (plus unnamed ally, wakakaka) sympathisers and/or followers?
Here, in the ban by PJ District Licensing Council against Chinese medicine shops selling alcohol-based products despite those shops holding state-issued liquor licences, is a clear cut case of unfairness and unreasonableness in a PKR-ruled state, yet most don't even want to talk about it.
Such seemingly racially-targeted ban, made effective without discussion with the traders or even a reasonable period of transition before implementation, is in reality not too far different from Jakim's draconian attempt to punish, through a syariah court prosecution, Nik Raina Nik Abd Aziz, Border's manager for selling a banned book which was not banned at time of sale.
TMI had reported: ... the Court of Appeal decided that Jawi was wrong in raiding and seizing copies the controversial book "Allah, Liberty and Love" by Irshad Manji from a Borders bookstore, upholding a lower court's decision.
The book was seized before an edict banning it was issued and Jawi's actions were deemed illegal and unconstitutional.
Yet Jawi had appealed against the Court's ruling for quite a while before it dropped the appeal (perhaps on higher instructions?).
But it has not been just Jawi that was unreasonable and bullying but also, in this sinseh-suck-it ban, the Petaling District Licensing Council.
And our beloved "Royal MB" has been most elegant, eloquent and escapish in his total silence. Looes74 and his fellow 'obsessed-with-Rosmah-ites' have been lamentably complicit in the unfair, unreasonable and unacceptable ban against an element of traditional Chinese medicine shops' business.
