So I've been in Singapore for over a week and been hanging around with the Nuffnang team in Singapore and I kinda feel a little left out sometimes.
You know? Because everyone here seems to watch Singapore TV and I don't.For example, on the way to lunch today Ming was talking to Cherie, one of our ad sales execs in Singapore about some real-life CSI documentary produced and aired in Singapore.
Apparently the story goes that there was this group of house burglars that would go robbing house after house and they stupidly got caught in the end because one of the burglars in the group would always go straight to the fridge when he breaks into a house and grab himself a Yakult to drink.Now here's the funny part, all of them were careful not to leave any fingerprints.
So they all wore gloves but the idiot who loves Yakult always finished his Yakult and then left it in the house.
If you watch enough CSI then you probably know what happened next.Singapore's CSI or dare I call it CSI: Singapore collected all the Yakult bottles from all 3 houses they robbed, collected the DNA and found out who one of the burglars was.
Can I just say this....
WHAT A FLIPPING IDIOT!!!
First you break into a damn house... and the first thing you look for is not the SAFE where the money and jewelery are probably kept but you look for the FRIDGE for where the Yakult is!!!Then he drinks the Yakult and leaves the bottle there?
WTF?!?!? Why doesn't he leave his business card there as well while he's at it?
And don't ask me how every house he robbed seemed to have Yakult.
For all you know this guy staked out the house before he robbed them to make sure they brought home Yakult whenever they came home from Cold Storage.
As I was expressing myself on what an idiot this guy must've been, Ming took a look at me and said
"Nah!!! This guy lar!!! Sure go for Yakult if he were to break into a house".
Niaamaa.... just because I live on Yakult doesn't mean I'm gonna be soooo stupid.
Dammit if I'm gonna do that I might as well bring a polaroid camera there and take some pictures of myself robbing the damn place only to leave it there for the cops to find.
Then I'll attach a Post-It note to the Polaroid pictures that says
"Hello Police, TIMOTHY TIAH WAS HERE.. BWAHAHAHAHAA... oh and uh when I mean Timothy Tiah I mean Timothy Tiah who lives in 38 Jalan Puting, 50030 PJ.
It's the blue house with the white gate. If you hit the McDs at the end of the road then you've gone too far. U-Turn and go a few houses back and you'll see my house on the left. Any problem finding the place call me at 016-693 2811 ok? Tenkiu ar!"
