Funny Place Name

Sorry these few days I was so busy with my work and did not update any new post. Yesterday when I was busy study at some technical drawing and some maps to get better picture to do technical proposal for a project in Kelantan.

Me and my colleague discovered a place name which very funny in Cantonese, we all laugh non stop with the name. As I know in Malay words don't have such word, how can this name appear in that location?

Let's see at the red circle spot...

Bukit Tiu

I wonder how this location named as Bukit Tiu. Is that if we go there sure kena Tiu? I also afraid when the highway project do until there, the work will be Tiu or not? Don't play play... it also got interchange of Tiu lor...
