Berkelakuan sumbang 

Yes, this is a real sign, in Gurney Plaza’s urban park.  Here is my best explanation :  

This is a Malay language sign/warning: “Berkelakuan Sumbang”, which generally means ‘disobedient”, but a more literal urban translation would be: “Kids—no ‘messing’ around in public, and being disobedient to your parents, sneaking around and destroying the good family name—HOW DARN YOU—WHERE DID WE GO WRONG!”—[mother crying and father boiling]!”
