24-Hour Shopping in Rapture

*Back to back. Sacroiliac. Spineless movement and a wild attack. Face to face, sadly solitude. And it's finger popping. Twenty-four hour shopping in Rapture*

My Latest Addiction

Ladies and Gentlemen, I present to you the newest sport to hit 2006:


7 FAQs:

1) Why is it called Mosquito-Zaperoo Badminton?

Because the racquet looks like a badminton racquet, you zap mosquitoes with it and 'Zaperoo' sounds damn cute.

2) Why should I play Mosquito-Zaperoo Badminton?

It burns a few calories (as good as playing 2 holes of golf), it's chic (or at least I tried to make it look chic), it's addictive, it's fun and it gets rid of all those annoying mosquitoes.

3) Where is the best place to play?

Any third world country. (I tried my room here in Singapore and I found zero mosquitoes. I started killing ants instead but it's not as thrilling at all)

4) Where can I get one of those racquets?

Any third world country's supermarket. Unfortunately, they don't have it here in Singapore. I got mine in Jakarta.

5) Is it safe to play Mosquito-Zaperoo Badminton around food?

Well, if you like vapourised-mosquito-dust to be all over your food, go right ahead.

6) How did this game come about?

It started when I was travelling in western Java and my friends Putri and Ades took me to this island called Pulau Umang where they owned a private bungalow with the most gorgeous view and untouched beach (Ok, I digress) and they had these racquets there and the only thing that spoilt the island's serenity were these annoying mosquitoes, so then I made a point to kill every last bit of it before we sleep and that's what I did with the help of Putri and I never went anywhere on the island without the racquets and ever since then I'm addicted. The mosquitoes in Indonesia really give you a good workout. They're pretty challenging. Call me sadistic, whatever, but I just love the sound of the mosquitoes zapping. More satisfying than hearing that favourite car that you can never afford zoom pass.

7) What would be the perfect, ideal song to listen to while Mosquito-Zaperooing?

I recommend "Through The Fire" by Chaka Kahn:

Through the fire, to the limit, to the wall
For just to be with you, I'd gladly risk it all
Through the fire, through whatever come what may
For a chance at loving you, I'd take it all the way...
Right down to the wire (get it? get it?), even through the fire.

Say goodbye to those pesty mosquitoes today!

If you wish to order the these racquets, I got a good deal. SGD$10 a piece. It's a very thoughtful cool and funky gift for your cool and funky friend. Trust me. Email me now to order your very own.
