Big Spender


I don’t know since when, and why, does Malaysians generally call underwear (both briefs and at times panties) “spenders”. It may derive from the word ‘Spandex’, or suspenders, but the truths still eludes me.

While I know some people do laugh when they saw the film “Big Spender”, I myself did laugh at Dato’ Siti Nurhaliza when she sang the song “Big Spender”, not to mention the fantasies that follows.

But when it involves a President like Mugabe, I don’t want to know about his “big spenders”…

  1. Yeah, spenders are spinoff to suspenders. We Malaysians always love to shorten / abbreviate words.

    I forgot about this, that spenders, meant underwear. LOL.
