If you look closer, you would notice that there are spelling errors on the sign. In fact both English language and Bahasa Melayu (Malay language). The words are: “BUAUNG” and “THORW”. When they should be “BUANG” and “THROW” respectively.

Interestingly, both words with spelling errors are the same word in different languages, which means throw or discard. Sad to say, it is a piece of good advice, but with bad spelling. Well, personally I think that sign with spelling errors need to be thrown or buang (thrown) away into the dump bin.
