Dr Chee Soon Juan as the Red Lantern??


I too like many of you enjoy the creativity of how politicians (mostly oppositions, so far) depicted in the movie poster.

But I draw a line & ought to voice out my objection when I read in Alvinology II post, "Singapore Election Candidates Spoof Movie Posters" (yes, there are many interesting artworks! Heh.) about how the above poster of Dr Chee Soon Juan is said to refer to the Flash. No Sir, he is no the Flash (not a flasher, either! Hur hur.). That poster for sure refers to that of the Green Lantern. The caption of "No evil shall escape my sight"--that's a giveaway as part of the Green Lantern's oath:


In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil's might,
Beware my power... Green Lantern's light!



Green Lantern movie - scheduled to release in June this year!


But then, why is Dr Chee Soon Juan shown as the Red Lantern? (Yes, this character does exist. There's even the Red Lantern Corps, in fact.)

But as a Red Lantern, Dr Chee must aware that it is not altogether flattering. Check the oath of this rage-spectrum lantern:


With blood and rage of crimson red,
Ripped from a corpse so freshly dead,
Together with our hellish hate,
We'll burn you all--That is your fate!


Uh-huh. How appropriate if Dr Chee is perceived as a furious politician full of rage. Well, is he? Perception deceives. Just check out the following YouTube clip, "Chee Soon Juan delivers SDP's election message in Hokkien" in which he speaks so calmly. Yeah. Boring. But it has gathered 126,077 views so far. Well, puzzling...

... and a "Girlfriend"

Yeah. You need a "Girlfriend"! Admit it. (Kind of sexist, really. Just like in the previous post of You need a "Boyfriend"!)

You need a "Boyfriend"...

Lol. I love how sullen the expression of the 'boyfriend'.

Mentos the Freshmaker ... a killer ad!!

When I said 'killer', I meant it literally. Heh. Next time, do watch out when you run to a watercooler & hit on someone who may soon consume a Mentos & hit you silly to the death with a Joker-like grin. Haha!



Such a simple lyric of the classic advertisement of Mentos. Endearing, though.

'Doo doo doo doo, doo-doo, do-Wah!'
It doesn't matter what comes, fresh goes better in life, and Mentos is fresh and full of life.

Nothing gets to you, staying fresh staying cool, with Mentos, fresh and full of life.

Fresh goes better, Mentos freshness, fresh goes better with Mentos, fresh and full of life!

Mentos, the Freshmaker!

From Basrah with a scam...

We're learning more about Basrah (or Basra) from a scam. Heh. It is the capital of Basra Governorate, in southern Iraq near Kuwait and Iran. It had an estimated population of two millions as of 2009.

Boring. The scam is, however, not. Supposedly from one Madam Henan Abdul-Haleem Ali (hanan@mail.com), the content of the scam is quoted as followings:

Assalamalaikum,

My names are Madam Henan Abdul-Haleem Ali from Basrah address: shu'aiba \basrah refinery\refinery houses: no. (20)Basrah city.

My husband engineering contractor Basrah oil Refinery Company Ltd. Whom was killed by bomb last attack on his way to work. His convoy came under attack by roadside bomb blast killing his driver & body guards.

Before my husband death he received the sum of $11million from the Iraqi UN OIL FOR FOOD PROGRAME, IRAQI OIL MINISTRY for contracts (SOC) SOUTH OIL COMPANY BASRAH for supplies of equipments & materials re/construction of north & south Ruwaila laying pipe lines oil refinery, destroyed by war.

Iraq very bad turning into civil war, shia against Sunni, our position not good we are not safe/ my purpose to contact you, I need to use your company & invest $11million as partner with you as my investment manager.

I and my children want to go out of Iraq & live in peace, I need foreign businessman or woman to help me in investment business & buy home villa in to live with my four children in your country.

Please reply back.

Assalamalaikum
Madam Hanan Abdu-halim

Lesson learnt from depositing adBrite cheque

Remember the joy when I received this adBrite cheque amount of US$103.76? Well, it's kinda short lived. I use DBS to get the money & alas, there are the following charges applicable:
- Commission S$10.00
- Postage S$4.00
- Agent Charges US$5.00 (= S$6.33)

Altogether I was deducted S$20.33. So with the cheque valued at $129.63, I easily lost almost 1/6 of the original amount. Heh. Bitter.
