it's real!!! (but i'm skeptical)

Those of you who've watched the latest Jack Neo movie, Just Follow Law, would remember with some amusement the old lady who acted as the mother of Fann Wong's character.

That's the same old lady who was seen collecting empty drink cans and working at Macdonalds in the show just because she was bored with nothing to do.

On the show, she had so much free time that she took up English lessons and learnt how to use the Internet. She surprised those vagrant characters in the show with her good command of English while taking their orders and even showed them her Internet Banking account, under the name of Lao Zhar Bor (i dunno if you guys spotted the name, but i sure did and i got quite a laugh out of it).

The funniest thing of all was when she told them, "Wo hai you blog ne, lao zha bor dot blogspot dot com", and proceeded to type in her blog's URL.

So hilarious right?

You know what's even more hilarious?

Huishan (i watched the show with her) msned me while i was working and screamed in caps, "IT'S REAL!!!"

She then pasted a URL following that outburst.

As i was swamped with calls, i clicked on it but left it while i attended to the calls.

I was practically swamped with enquiries all the way, so i briefly browsed through the site she gave me.

It was laozhabor.blogspot.com.


I was squealing with glee that the site actually exists!

At first i thought that someone else set it up after the show, the English was too good to be a lao zha bor's, but then i saw the pictures.

If you watch as much local television and movies as me (read: not much), you'll recognise the other woman as another lao zha bor who frequently cameos in those shows as either grannys or random passerbys.

*double faints*

I have no time to really analyse the blog, but once i get home (i'm still in office [sad face]), i'm so gonna sit down and read everything!

This is sooooooooooooooooooooooooo groundbreakingly funny.

She should join the youth.sg blogging competition since she's so hip!


My god i'm still feeling tickled.

edit: according to aldwin it's old news. nvm, still damn funny!

I don't want you to think of me as an eavesdropper so I'll just say that I'm listening to music instead of my neighbour's maid flirting with my other neighbour's driver.


I like it when people think of me as an intellectual so I will list a bunch of intellectual-sounding books here, even those I don't plan to read.


Since I can't list my porn collection here, I'll just leave it this way until I can force myself to watch non-pornographic stuff, which may or may not happen.
