Book Description:

DO YOU WEAR SUSPENDERS? THE WORDY TALES OF EH POH NIM is a collection of anecdotes about the everyday life of Eh Poh Nim, a loquacious woman who launches into explanations of words and phrases at the drop of a hat.

Anyone with even a passing interest in the English language will find this book appealing and amusing. Phrases like “bake a tit”, “pie in the sky”, “bananas and fruitcakes”, “Mrs. Malaprop’s nipples” and “satay mushrooms” may sound deliciously naughty or vulgar, but none of them are what they seem.

Eh Poh Nim, a punctilious wordsmith, enlightens readers on idioms, hyperboles, metaphors and other figures of speech with delightful humour and an insight into the Malaysian way of life and its complexities and peculiarities
