30 September 2008


This photograph taken on June 2, 2008, shows the founder of the newly formed opposition "Reform Party," Joshua B. Jeyaretnam, center, leaving the supreme courts in Singapore. A Singapore television station said on Tuesday, former opposition leader Joshua B. Jeyaretnam has died of heart failure. He was 82. - AP

The name is Joshua Benjamin Jeyaratnam. Singapore's very first elected opposition member of parliament was 82 until early this morning.

His heart may have failed but his heart didn't die.

He may have been broke but his spirit was never broken.

He may have passed away but the memory of his fiery courage will live on.

He led his band of guerrillas opposition minorities but he has enough integrity not to deploy monkey tactics (read: glucose cheating hunger strike).

I didn't have any chance to vote for him but he gets my vote for his conviction to stand by his beliefs.
Have a good rest, Mr Joshua Benjamin Jeyaratnam. You've earned it.

NOTE: The wake is at Mount Vernon, Upper Aljunied Road, Funeral Parlour 1. Time: 7pm onwards. The funeral will be on Saturday.

Paul Potts Who?

Does the name Paul Potts ring a bell?

Does anyone recognise the faces on top?

It's ok if you don't.

That's the winner of last year's Britain's Got Talent.

He was briefly mentioned in my Connie Talbot entry as the latter came in runner-up to this mobile phone salesman.

It was a frenzy for everyone loves the underdog.

A humble salesman with a chubby look that won't exactly hit the front covers of Esquire AND YET, able to bring all the ladies in the house to tears with his voice. Just look at his facial expression in the youtube below and you will see a man with nothing. A man whose sad eyes tells you that he has already resigned to fate. Hence a man with nothing to lose with he decides to give the competition a shot.

If this doesn't pique the people's curiosity, I doubt if anything else would.

With curiosity, comes novelty and looking at how long the novelty of the Portuguese Egg Tart, Bubble Tea, tamagotchi, dog-bone car seat pillow each lasts, the cat dies pretty quickly. Even with all 9 lives.

That's is exactly what happened to Potts for his originally scheduled concert in Hong Kong on 6 Oct 2008 was abruptly canceled last week due to "unforeseen circumstance" which in industry-lingo-speak means bad ticket sales.

So Mr Potts, it was fun while it lasted and off you go back to selling mobile phones. Seriously, I think Potts had a better deal than our poor Taufik who's CD is now peddling for $1.99.

At least Potts got a nice set of teeth now.

The Goonfather Window Plush Toy

I was reading Sheylara's entry where she got this miniature cardboard bus which was a promotional material for a website where she is a columnist.

Then when she was toying with the idea of pasting The Goonfather's picture on the bus as its driver, it dawned on me that...

The Goonfather would make a great window plush toy!

So with a 5-minute sloppy copy, slap and paste effort, I present to you The Goonfather Window Plush!

Just for added fun, I also decided to create a spoof ebay site (pdf screen cap) for bidding starting at a cool USD 14.50.

Yah lah. Damn boliao lah.

But funny where I get all these stoopid ideas.... The Goonfather this time confirm going to kill me with his PVC Pipe Of Death™.

Things that make you go hmm.....

You Are All Fired!

Daily Mail Online (18 Sep 2008) -Turkish Hotel Fires ALL Its Male Workers... For Having Affairs With British Women Guests
I think it is a bad mistake from a commercial stand point that perhaps part of the reason why female tourists are booking this hotel is perhaps of the "special service"?

It may be against company policy where staff are advised against fraternising with the guests but it is certainly not against the law as this is a private arrangement between two consenting adults in the privacy of the guest room.

Probably no money was transacted although the said staff may enjoy a slightly more generous tip at the end of the stay? Even if there was, there is no proof.
Anyway, now that the hotel has gotten rid of all male staff, you think the problem will be solved?

Well, yes and no. The problem of male staff sleeping with the female guests will be resolved but who is to say that the female staff will not end up romping with the male guests?

It was a relatively unknown secret that I had plans to run away many many years back and I had the perfect window of opportunity to do so.


No one would notice anything amiss where students go on vacations when they graduate. The usual places would be Australia, US and Europe. Given that this would be the final holiday before entering the work force, these trips tend to stretch a little longer (not to mention dwelved them further into debt on top of the student loans). So, it won't be a while until people start realising that I've vanished, if at all.

I shunned those lame-ass tour groups as I plotted my one-man journey to the islands. Samoa, Fiji, Marshall Islands, Maldives, Mauritius just to name a few. I was ready to severe all ties with my friends and yes, even my family.

My plan was to go there and seek out job opportunities, settle down and never come back. I just thought that I am not suited for the ladder-climbing of the rat-race. I wanted a slacker kick-back lifestyle where I work for a day's wage and then help out with the community during my free time like teaching the local kids.

If only I thought of Marmaris back then, I would have been unemployed last week. Hah hah.

Also, it's probably a good thing that I didn't follow up and plonked myself down in Maldives or I would have been dead at the bottom of the ocean after the 2004 tsunami.

Fate has a strange way of unfolding its path for you. No?

Model FAIL

Saw this featured article in the inflight magazine of Tiger Airways on my recent trip back home.

Take a look and make a guess what's wrong with the picture before scrolling down to see what I think is wrong.
Is it me of does the model on the left have a run in the stocking?

It made me wonder:
  1. Did the model not notice that she has a run on her stocking when she was putting it on?
  2. Did the photographer not notice that she has a run on her stocking during the photo shoot?
  3. Did the editor not notice that she has a run on her stocking during post-editing?
  4. Or is it just me being swakoo, that the "run" is in fact part of the stocking design?
Share you views with me on this in the comments.

Looking forward to hearing from you.

JayWalk has a very sharp eye for details, like how he spotted 2 dragonflies in a friend's photograph recently. However, he too has the power to be blind selectively like how to buah bodoh at charboh's hints. Hur hur hur.....

I thought it was a reflective shine from the flash of the camera, you know, sometimes stockings can be fancy and glittery. Plus hor, they look like good-looking patrons of the club rather than models. So I think it's one of those hired-cameramen-go-shoot-sexy-patrons kinda photos. If it really is a photoshoot, then really Fail lor. On many levels too.

Try an experiment. It really is the reflection of light. I too once wore stockings like that and am not proud of it! Guess u can imagine why.

Linny: Where?

venu5sian: She has two legs that just happened to be tucked neatly behind the other girl's leg lah. Otherwise, she would be one girl when helluva fat calf (that is even fatter then her thigh).  

Bub: What I meant is that if thats light then how come the light doesn't also illuminate that part of the skirt as well. If you say that theskirt material is not as reflective, then surely it would be a tad brighter. No? Anyway, that's debatable and it's one of those little mysteries that will never get solved. :(

And no. I can't imagine why. Why?

1121: Yes, it was taken off the September 2008 issue of the Tiger Airways magazine. Right now, there is a debate that the line could the sheen reflection as it a quite unthinkable for a publication to make such an amateur mistake.

Still, it look like a run to me.

I am not running away with your conclusion. It's sheer reflection.

Tennis Anyone?

Tennis Gal executing the 秋风扫落叶 - 第十五式

That's Tennis Gal above and for those who have been following this blog for a while, you may find this name a tad familiar.

Anyway, that's my tennis kaki and let me just say that she is pretty good at it.

Whenever I am back, I will schedule a session of tennis and she is my "goto girl" as far as making arrangements for courts and rounding up other kakis.

I never like playing with girls for any sports coz most of them 软绵绵 one. Same goes for my JC table tennis team where I helped coached for a while many many years back.

Tennis Gal is perhaps the few exceptions that are of the female gender and that I actually enjoyed playing against tremendously and of course there is Karen who was Vice-Captain of her school team who whipped me gao gao (my left femur not yet recover from stress fracture lor!!).

There were 4 of us that lovely Sunday. 1 fit, 2 unfit and 1 just woke up. Yeah, she was so fit that she played earlier in the morning and still outlasted the 3 of us in the afternoon. *kowtow*

Even my tennis shoe also lose to her. -______________-

Creamy Snuff

Creamy Snuff - A Wonder Treasure Of Tobacco Pleasure

Make a guess, what do you think this is before scrolling down for the answer.
It's a tooth paste.

Ok. You can pick up your jaw from the floor now. It is from India and it's a tobacco toothpaste. Yes, they even included menthol to give you that cool feeling in the mouth.

Here's the official website of the product -->

Below are some snippets from the website which had me roll eyes until they foamed at the sockets.

  • Before long you cannot avoid experiencing that ethereal feeling of freshness and calmness like you have never felt before.
  • No amount of smoking or chewing of tobacco can replicate the experience of healthy wholesomeness felt for prolonged periods with Ipco Creamy Snuff.

5th RunForFunds Maximise Your Potential Award Ceremony (13 Sep 2008)

After the ceremony was over, we have a small little reception for everybody where the sponsors, parents, teachers and students can mingle a little bit. I have had the opportunity to address the parents. It was in Mandarin but I shall translate to English here.

"RunForFunds is a very very small project with very small resources. Just the way we want it as it provides versatility and flexibility. 

Singapore produces 40,000 babies every year and if 1% of them have some sort of problem gaining access to a proper education, then between Primary 3 to Primary 6, we are talking about 1,600 children here.

Today, we are giving out financial aid to just a mere 15 children (between Primary 3 to 6), which is a mere fraction of the 1,600 number that I just arbitrarily assumed.

But you know what?

15 is better than 14. 

In other words, we do whatever we can to help. If we can help 1 kid, we help one 1 kid. If we can help 2 kids, even better. So on and so forth.

We are not here to prove that the Gahmen is not doing their job. They are doing as best as they can do which is itself very commendable. We are just following closely behind and picking those who have slipped through the cracks coz no system is absolutely flawless perfect. 

Today, RunForFunds is helping 15 kids. We hope to have more people to set up their own projects and if there is another one set up after today, then perhaps in total, we collectively cover from 15 to 30 kids. If a 3rd group were to be set up, then 45. (Get the math?) 

Eventually, if more and more groups were to come up, we may one day be able to cover every hole in the big Gahmen trawling net, thereby making the whole system a little nearer to perfection." 

So anyway, below is the report by aL whom I am mirroring from pertaining to the Maximise Your Potential awards held earlier on 13 Sep 2008.

Hi folks,

The 5th Maximize Your Potential Award Ceremony was held @ Geylang Methodist Primary School on 13 Sep 2008, 10am.

Click here to see all the event pics:

It was attended by the award recipients, their parents and sponsors & friends of the RunForFunds movement.

The event was graced by GMPS's principal Miss Mabel Wee.

Recipients Jacky Thng and Lim Su Ru kicked off proceedings bidding everyone welcome and introducing the MYP programme.
MYP attendees                                   Jacky and Su Ru, our little MCs

GMPS then gave an update on the progress of the MYP students.

In the past 5 years, the MYP and pocket money fund @ GMPS have supported more than 50 students.

The current batch of primary 6 batch have done well in their academic results, achieving average scores >75%.

This year, we celebrate the influx of new talent into the MYP programme.

There are 8 new MYP award recipients from primary 3 and 4.

If they continue to excel in both academic studies and CCA, coupled with good behaviour, MYP will continue to sponsor them through their primary school education.

Below are the pics of awards (@ $200 posb voucher, $50 book voucher, $100 training grants) handed out by Miss Wee:

Benjamin (P6)                                                            Su Ru (P6)
Xiang Wei (P6)                                                       Jacky (P6)
Zhiguang (P5)                                                          Angie (P5)
Quan Fang (P4)                                                        Joyce (P4)
Kelvin (P4)                                                              Kok Kwang (P4)
Jee Hui (P4)                                                                 Hui Ci (P4)
Jun Hsian (P3)                                                             Yi En (P3)

I congratulated the students on a job well done and encouraged them to keep up the good work.

I shared with them why doing well in school is like running a marathon:  One needs to train hard, be well prepared and NEVER GIVE UP.

I also thanked their parents for working hard and continuing to create the best possible environment to nurture their children's talent, despite challenging financial circumstances.

I related the story of how Chinese philosopher Mencius' mother moved house 3 times to ensure Mencius had the best environment for studies.

I urged the children to thank their parents for their labour of love and honour their parents (as per the 5th commandment that was given to Moses @ Mount Sinai).

Miss Wee presented the friends of RFF with a memento, in appreciation of our contributions.

The "old" batch of MYP winners also presented RFF friends a card, expressing their thanks.

Below is a group pic of the award winners, their parents and teachers.

I'd like to draw special mention to 2 special people, without whom, MYP and pocket money fund @ GMPS would not have been possible.

  -  Jessie Soh (front row, extreme right)
  -  Theresa Thong (extreme left).

I thank them for their dedication and love for the kids.

Parting words, (which I shared with RFF friends @ MYP ceremony):

RFF is a private movement and will continue to stay this way.

We will not raise funds from the general public but from friends and family.

It is my wish that more Singaporeans will start their own charity movements to help the needy at times when they need it most (ie. when our government system of support cannot assist).

To do so, there are 2 criteria:

  1. It starts within: Be the change that you want to see in the world.  There needs to be a compelling desire to evoke a change.

  2. It extends outwards:  Making a difference in the lives that you touch. Find a cause that you can identify with and let your desire and passion to help those in need flow through.

Start small.  You can't save the world.

How the plans will be executed will come naturally when the above criteria are met.

You will find like minded people (like Mabel, Jessie and Theresa @ GMPS), who will help you further your cause.

Well, that's all folks.

To friends who attended the ceremony, thank for making time.

For those who couldn't make it, there's always next year :-)

Sunday Church

I lost it today.

Yeah, so I got home at almost 4am partying the night before and that's after powering through 44 hours without sleep.

Neverthless, I got up dutifully at 8am, getting ready for church with the family.

I can be the sloppy joe in almost everything but I just cannot accept tardiness when it comes to keeping time.

This is not the first time, there had been occasions in the past where I just dump the car keys on the table and go on ahead without her. Even if it meant taking the bus.

"Other people are also going to be late what?!" is an excuse that I've heard countless of times to which my retort is that it does not give us the right to add on to that statistic.

We have a 10.30am service on Sunday which I looked forward to with the family but if everyone were to drag their feet until we leave the front door at 10.30am, I asked myself if there is a point to it any more?

Even though the traffic was relatively smooth at the CTE, we got to church at 11+ and after dropping off Faith at Sunday school, it was 11.15am already. Lost cause.

I am not saying that I am perfect in that aspect and there are times where I am caught late. Normally, I would call ahead to apologise followed by a reschedule of my ETA.

How do you do that in this situation? Do you call the church ahead and ask the congregation of 700+ to hold off for 45 minutes, simply because you left the house late?

Simply disrespectful.

So yeah. I never liked half-fucked situations. That's me. Too bad.

Anyway, here I am sitting in the canteen outside the church and having some personal quiet time in the hope of calming myself down before I spoil the day not only for myself but for everybody else.

If I can't be under the roof of God, I guess the next best thing is to be near it.

Most times i just come just when the sermon is about to start. Not that i can't wake up earlier to be there on time. Just that, i have my own routine of getting myself prepared to listen to the sermon and singing hymns before a sermon isn't part of my routine.
One thing that i really can't stand is the constant movement of young people walking in and out during the sermon to visit the toilet and answering a call. So urgent meh! Bladder so full meh?

Sunday Lunch At The Peak

(Click Picture To Enlarge)

I stumbled all the way to Hong Kong last Sunday morning, after having to entertain this one person who was supposedly Jacky Wu's teacher.

He was invited by Alpha Male's company to make guest appearances over the weekend as the company was having some event promotion. Naturally, during the night, we were all roped in to entertain this VIP.

Being a celebrity of sorts in Spitland and back in Ta1wan, I was surprised how friendly and down to earth this person was. I guess when all guards are down, the guard against drinking too much went out the window too.
Next thing I remembered, I was stumbling my way to Hong Kong to meet up with Deek, Deek Wife and my GodSon Troy.

We decided to head up to The Peak for lunch and with good weather on a Sunday and Deek's big assed DSLR, the choice was as clear as the HongKong sky albeit rare.

Soup and salad was my choice for lunch and stole a couple of slices of Parma ham and cheese pizza sprinkled with black truffles.

Truffles... mmmm..... heaven. Not exactly top notched truffles but fragrantly yummy nevertheless.

After lunch, we decided to take a walk up to the Sky Terrace to work off the lunch as well as to take some really awesome pictures of the Hong Kong skyline.

(Click Picture To Enlarge)

Time flies when you are having a good time and I soon find myself having to leave at 4pm to make it back for dinner with the VIP and even more drinks thereafter.

I dragged CowBoyCaleb along with me that evening and I am proud to confer him the title of the LongKang Fairy Award of the Ch1na Order the morning after.

That however, would be another story, another time.

Sian XMM Episode XVII

Freneli is one of those avid photography chick with a kickass DSLR and I have to say she takes pretty good pictures, so much so that her Flickr RSS is on my bloglines subscription.

And the picture above was uploaded earlier today and I spotted something in the details.

The following conversation ensued. Enjoy.

Session Start : Tue Sep 09 15:42:10 2008

Session Close : Tue Sep 09 16:27:15 2008

Note: For the uninitiated, the picture is that of the defunct St James Power Station which since been converted into a night entertainment spot, in which there is a discotheque inside by the coincidental name of Dragonfly.

RFF MYP 2008 - Clarification

I refer to my earlier entry on the coming RunForFunds Maximise Your Potential 2008 Awards Ceremony.

I do apologise if some of you have gotten the wrong impression of what this coming event is.

In recent days, I have been fielding questions from several people and am heartened to see that the blog entry that I've written have indeed reached somebody out there.

I have had confirmations that they will come (thank you!) as well as others who sent in their regrets (still thank you for wanting to come but can't!). Then there are the general enquiries to find out more about what is going to happen on the day it is.

So for the record,
  1. There will not be a run on that day.
  2. It is not a kind of carnival event or road show or exhibition organised in collaboration with the school i.e. there will be no Uncle Ringo.
  3. It is just a simple get-together in a classroom where the kids, their parents, their teacher as well as their supporters come together to celebrate the fruits of the kids' hard work. I estimate the event to last one hour and a half tops.

    We hope that the kids and their parents and teachers will have a chance to get to know their well wishers as well as the well wishers know first-hand that their support are being utilise to maximum benefit.
Allow me to pause here for a minute to think about it. To organise an event requires logistics and logistics cost money. The very same money that we so painstakingly raised to give to the kids in the first place. So it is kind of ironic if the money ended up in Uncle Ringo's pocket.

So no. Big wayangs are just not our thing.

Having cleared that up, some declined the invitation which is fine coz what we are doing caters to an extremely niche segment i.e. we anticipate a very high rate of rejection as a result of a very low rate of fully understanding what we are doing and why.

But when you get retorts like "Cheh.... then go for what?"*, oh man...... that really hurt. It felt like an arrow shot from a thousand miles to spiral itself squarely into your chest meshing up the ventricular chambers.
The hurt didn't come from the rejection nor the belittling dismissal. The hurt came from the fact that you can't fault them for it simply because they really have no idea what we are doing and what we have committed.

It's a chicken-and-egg situation where they don't know, they won't come. If they don't come, they won't know.

I must admit that I did approach CowBoyCaleb to plug this using our friendship as leverage. In a way, it was selfish since it is a form of blackmailing as CowBoyCaleb will find it difficult to say no to me. Hence the later decision against the idea of getting high traffic bloggers to put out a word for us.

So, to the rest of my fellow blogging friends who have and/or are supporting RunForFunds, I am not saying not to plug nor cover this event nor both. Publicity is always helpful but do it only if you feel that it is a worthy entry to note.

Please don't do it for me. Do this because you want to. Do this because you want to tell other people about the kids that RunForFunds is supporting.

* Yeah, if you are reading this and you get a queasy feeling in the stomach, I am talking about you. Fret not, it is perfectly fine with me coz I perfectly understand that it is normal reaction for those who are not familiar with our work. Don't worry. I still love you guys.

Sian XMM Episode XVI

In a way, CowboyCaleb and I are like nomadic gatherers where we venture out to the unknown to forage for our existence.

Perhaps it is kismet that we are to bump into each other in a strange unfamilar land and naturally, we stick together and look out for each other in the unchartered waters.

So from strangers back home to goot brudders on foreign soil. What are the chances?
Ahh... the many mysteries of the universe alongside the inability to burp, fart and sneeze.....
..... at the same time. 
Anyway, we have this watering hole where I call it our "Second Office", the H0llyw00d Baby Bar.

Can't really call it "Second Home" since we are not allowed to sleep there although CowBoyCaleb has broken that rule already.

If you are familiar with the TV series Cheers, we are the Cliff and Norm of the H0llyw00d Baby Bar.

In accordance to the standard practice of a dog sniffing a new fire hydrant, Sir Edmund Hillary reaching the peak of Mount Everest and Neil Armstrong stepping foot on the moon.

We proudly marked our territory.

Hence, the Malaysia and Singapore flags in the bar, courtesy of CowboyCaleb and yours truly.

To celebrate this historical moment, I shall share with you a new episode of the Sian XMM Series.

H0llyw00d Baby: Eh. Why your Singapore flag is smaller than CowboyCaleb's?

JayWalk: Singapore smaller country so smaller flag lor!

H0llyw00d Baby: Really har?

JayWalk: (Deadpan) Yes. You see your Ch1na flag behind? Very big right?

H0llyw00d Baby: Yes.

JayWalk: Ch1na big country, so big flag lor!

H0llyw00d Baby: Then USA is also small country har?

JayWalk: (Deadpan) Yes. About same size as Singapore.

Yeah... I can be quite bastard at times.

RunForFunds 2008 - "Maximize Your Potential" Award Ceremony

Yup, it's the time of the year where we spread our hearty cheers to the kids.

Some of you were asking me why the awards ceremony always so late in the year when the funds were raised during the last Standard Chartered Bank Marathon was 10 months ago, in December the year before?

Well, I haven't exactly gotten verification of this from the horse's mouth himself but I speculate the following reasons:
  1. Funds are sometimes pledged first and then given later. As such, there are contributors whom may have pledged a certain amount before the start of the marathon but sent us the money at a later date. Therefore, we need all the money to come in first before we are able to figure out exactly how much we have raised and from there plan how much we can give.

  2. The awards are meant for the kids' school expenses the following year and as such, September would be a good time to tell them that we got his/her back for the next year, just a month before they head into their year-end examinations. We hope that with the peace of mind, they would be able to do even better in the examinations.
  3. And besides, the teachers also need the front part of the year to assess the students and earmark the deserving ones to receive the awards.
  4. Either all that or AL is a bladdy procrastinator, which is why we take 10 months to disburse the funds. :P
So anyway, I would like to invite all who are interested to know what we do, to join us for the event.

Or maybe we can all go out for lunch after that?

RSVP me here or my MSN, email, or mobile phone.


(Reproduced from AL's email circular)
Hi folks,

The annual Maximize Your Potential (MYP) award ceremony is here again.

Date: 13th September (Saturday)
Time: 10 am
Venue: Geylang Methodist Primary School (3rd level conference room 4th level AVA Room).
Address: 4 Geylang East Central. Singapore 389706.

Come meet the GMPS kids, some of whom you've sponsored for the past 5 years.

Learn about their academic progress in school and how they've excelled in activities outside their schoolwork.

Also use the opportunity to interact with their parents.

I'm sure they'd appreciate a pat on their backs for bringing their kids up well, despite their financial challenges.

As there'll be friends visiting the MYP award for the first time, I will be giving a short briefing on Run For Funds (RFF), its goals (what we're doing @ D'joy Children's Centre and Sembawang Primary School) and the state of finance.

If you have friends who are keen to start something on their own to help the underprivileged in Singapore, invite them to this event.

If friends of RFF can do it, anyone can.

As GMPS will be catering light snacks for the event, I'd appreciate if you could RSVP by 6th Sept (Sat).

You can also sms me

Thanks all and have a blessed week at work.

Man Almost Loses Penis Humping Steel Bench

8th August 2008 has many special meanings for many different people. For some, it marks the historical date of Ch1na's first ever Olympic Games as host.

In Ch1nese traditional customs, the number 8 is an auspicious one and what better day to get married on 08.08.08 since it sounds of FATT FATT FATT!!

And also for a certain 41-year old Mr Xing (Mr Sun as reported in Hong Kong papers as a result of Cantonese spelling) from Hong Kong. I supposed everybody was at home watching the Olympics on the telly that perhaps LanTian Park (Cantonese: Lam Tin) was especially deserted that night. So what better day to make love to a steel sit-up bench on 08.08.08 since it sounds of f*ck f*ck f*ck?

So Xing decides to stick his little pee pee into the hole and naturally as the blood flows towards the erection he found himself stuck. Logically, he must be thinking to himself that he should be able to pull it out as soon as the erection subsides.


Obviously, he is bigger than the hole i.e. blood will not be able to flow away as the erection simply gridlocks every passage out of the penis.
He was lucky on a few counts.
  • He had a cell phone on him to call for help.

    What if he is stuck until next morning?
    What if some uncle shows up at the park for his morning TaiJi and sees him like this?
    What if TaiJi uncle is gay?
    What if TaiJi uncle is gay AND horny with his morning wood?
  • There were no stray dogs in the vicinity.

    What if there are stray dogs in the vicinity?
    What if they are hungry?
    What if he smells of smoked meat after just having had a BBQ nearby earlier?
    Hey! Isn't that a sausage dangling from under the steel bench?
So what better day to call 911 (or 119 or 110 or 999 or 995 or whatever's the number they use in HK) 08.08.08 since it sounds of FARK! FARK! FARK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The guy LAN LAN (no pun intended) no choice but to call and help arrived shortly. Sure enough, the journalists were all there too. This was just too good a piece of cock news (no pun intended again!) to pass up.

As I was watching the youtube clip above, I heard the man's groan.

Chewie!!? Is that you??

Man, for a moment I thought we caught the world's most famous wookie on TV with a steel bench. Nah... just some HK bloke that sounded like Chewbacca. He would have been better off with Hands Solo (Hans Solo geddit? Geddit?)

Imagine the following scenario (dubbed in Singlish):

Rescue Crew: OH AH PEH AH SOM!!!

Rescue Crew #1: Ah Seng, you different from everybody. You parsang!!

Rescue Crew Ah Seng: Oi!! That one not counted! Not counted, I thought we first time is practice one!

Rescue Crew #1: Nah Beh. Lose already dun come here and kar limpeh buah bodoh hor.

Rescue Crew #2: Yah loh. 愿赌服输 hor!


Rescue Crew: TOO BAD!!

[ 15 minutes later to no avail. ]

Rescue Crew #1: Eh. Lube liao still cannot pull out. How ah?

Rescue Crew Ah Seng: YOU ALL SABO MEEEEEEE!!!!

Rescue Crew #2: I think we need to let the blood out externally. Who is going to do it?

Rescue Crew: OH AH PEH AH SOM!!!

Rescue Crew #1: Ah Seng!! You again!! BUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH!!!!

Rescue Crew Ah Seng: MAI LAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In the end, the rescue team had to cut away the entire bench and load Xing and his new-found friend into the ambulance. It wasn't until 4 hours later that he was freed.

And that beckons the following questions.
  • Do they let him keep the bench as a souvenir?
  • I supposed there won't be cuddling after he pulls it out?
  • Will he call the bench the next day?
And if you think the ordeal ends there, you are so wrong.

First, there were the rescue team and the journalists. Next, you have the news broadcasting this all over HK, then you have youtube sharing this with the entire world. Finally, you have schmucks like me, making fun of it all over again, one month later.

So what better day to get caught screwing a bench on 08.08.08 since it sounds of you're f*cked! you're f*cked! you're f*cked!

Latest Update: Looks like the Leisure And Cultural Services Department may be suing him for damaging public property. Apparently, one of those benches cost about HKD 14,000 (approx. SGD 2,500) to replace.

Still, I think it's cheaper than the previous 48K case of AnyHowlyWherely Stick Your KKJ. =P
