May I take your photo? - WS #44

Several bloggers and I had lunch yesterday at a well-known Hainanese Chicken Rice stall in Balestier Road. After lunch, we crossed the road to a famous local dessert shop. This shop is patronised by many well-known celebrities in Singapore. On one of their walls, you can see the photos of them having desserts in this shop.

We were chatting, when suddenly......

What are the servers looking at?

One of the servers approached the young man in black and asked, "Can my colleague take your photo?"

There was a moment of silence at the table. EastCoastLife was pissed that they didn't ask for her photo..... I guessed the rest were just as pissed. Then the lady continued ...

"My colleague admired the image of the tiger at the back of your T-shirt. She wanted to have a picture of it because it looked magnificent and fierce!" *every one of us fell off our stools*


Suddenly every one in the room became interested in the white tiger .....

This tiger is now 'a celebrity' on the wall of this dessert shop. Nobody asks for the name of TigerMan. The tiger has its last laugh! hahahaha........

TigerMan is more pissed than pleased!! :D



Blogger outing with Ed, dk, chillycraps, xizor, Nicole, xinyun

  1. The Tiger on the T-shirt stole the show! Hey, eastcoastlife, if you were to wear the Tiger T-shirt and even wear a Tiger-mask everywhere you go, it's likely reporters may ask to take photos of you.

    Ok, this is ineffective humour to you, perhaps. ;)

  2. wow! The tiger really look magnificent. Did they really didn't ask for the TigerMan's name? No wonder he's making silly face. LOL

  3. oceanskies,
    I'm still 'pretty miffed' at being cut out of the Celebrity Wall! *grins*

    The tiger on the T-shirt stole every one's show! Every one's banned from wearing T-shirts with interesting pictures for future outings!

    Probably if I don't wear clothes when I go out, I could get everyone's attention... including the police! :D

  4. Lina,
    Yep, no one asked for his name nor ours. *sniff sniff*
    *waves to shop assistants* Hello!! We are well-known bloggers in Singapore!

  5. Eh, what is this? take tiger photo but not ECL photo? Wear a tiger shirt next time, and at least you will get your photo taken from the neck down, that is. Haha! Just joking : )

  6. foongpc,

  7. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHHAHAHAHAAHAHA...

    Until now I can still remember the unanimous laughter. Everyone just went crazy... I think the shop should really thank us for adding so much life to the shop.

    Why didn't anyone think of asking him to go kopitiam sell Tiger Beer? WAHAHAHA

    ReplyDelete
  8. Ed,
    The whole shophouse was rocking then! Tremors probably felt in Toa Payoh! hahaha...

    yahor... let's get him to be a Tiger Beer man for a night and we make a short film. I go ask the boss of the kopitiam near my house to lent us his stall for our blogging. hehehe....

    ReplyDelete
  9. Omg! ECL is fast la. I still can recall the laughter like what Ed has wrote. HAHAHA!

    ReplyDelete
  10. wow, the tiger is certainly eye-catching. looks like people are been bitten by the tiger-bug rather than the tigerman.

  19. if the waitress had been more blunt, it'll sound like this : "can i take a picture of your white tiger?".

    You know what white tiger means in hokkien...translation: " can i take a picture of your shaven di*k/pus*y". :P

    ReplyDelete
  20. ecl,

  21. ECL, your replied at my blog about not able to catch up with inflation reminds me of the Singaporean movie "Money No Enough 2". Did you see this movie? I really enjoyed it! One of the best movie I've seen this year. How come didn't blog about it since you're Singaporean right?: )

  22. articulator,

    We were laughing like mad when we realised it's the white tiger they want!! middle-aged aunties.... you think they don't know what they are asking? hahaha....

  23. Kok,
    Rabbit ah!? If you are a girl, probably that will arouse the interest of guys lah. :P

    What about a T-shirt with the words 'No Entry' displayed nearer your butt? :P

    ReplyDelete
  24. foongpc,
    I was invited to the premier of the movie 'Money No Enough 2'. I met director Jack Neo and cast. I didn't blog about it. Probably I should, after I get to interview Jack Neo and a few of his actors. :)

    ReplyDelete
