Easy Money To Make

I had always been a fan for Street Performers in the West who would daringly perform anything they fancied in public areas like beach sides and downtown's boulevards or even public parks.

I heard such performers or mimic actors originated from the days of the Roman empire, correct me if I am wrong. Anyways, I loved them coz I appreciate Arts of any form. I first saw such acts during my student days when Japanese mates drove me to Ocean City in New Jersey where such performers were attracting large crowds who thronged for their annual summer swim.
Then again, I saw them on off in Manhattan's Battery Park nearby the now collapsed World Trade Centre once stood. I guessed NYC has the most such performers in the States coz they have the highest number of street bums and jobless guys who would find anyway to earn money other than mugging or being street drunkards. How I wish our bastard Mat Rempits could also act and earn bucks doing any artistic acts at KLCC's Parks instead of robbing and vandalizing the streets at wee hours!

The Street Performers have become a hive Arts activity that is so well appreciated by general public till they hold such annual events on big scales in Edmonton-Canada, Venice, London and Rio De Janeiro.
I like this silver still-actors who would be standing or sitting for hours without moving a wink. By one hour, you can see their container filled to brim with assorted cash notes and coins thrown in by the public who are always supportive.

Then 2 nights ago, I arrived outside Sg.Wang to supervise an evening photography shoot of the Pavillion and Lot 10. We strolled the pavements and I was stunned to see this midget guy!!


He was garbed in fullest silver colour, from his hat to his painted bespectacled face till his shoes! Whooa! That was the first time I saw this in Malaysia. Have you, guys?? Tell me, if you see lots of them anywhere.


He made me think a lot whole night!

Why did he do that? Not many people supported him but he could have earned about RM10 in his tin can that night. Could he not get employed outside? But what could he do when he was just about 3 1/2 feet tall?? I pitied him and blamed his cruel karma for giving him no alternative choice.

On the better side, I am proud that he stood against all odds and braved himself to the public front to earn an honest living. So a word of advice to all you emo guys who have been sulking and choosy in your career paths! 
 
TIME AND TIDE WAITS FOR NO MAN

He broke the silent ice and yelled at the Malay kid who posed beside him so many times.
"Woi you kena bayar duit dalam tin ni !!"

I was too engrossed in my deep thoughts until I forgot to give him any token. I will place RM10 in his can when I next spot him again.

  10. Queen B - Yeah what a stingy Queen you are for keeping massive wealth to yourself. I didn't know others had blogged about this midget.

    Sam - That would be nice to see red, blue and green too. Maybe we should try doing it on wknds to earn fast bucks.

    Shelly - You and me are dumb people who didn't know these performer existed since long ago. We better take a good look at the side walks next time.

    Jerry Boy - Looks like the same spot I saw as you. Just this fellow didn't even walk around. I must go there more often as it has been more than 10 years I didn't stand at that corner of BB Plaza!

    Calvin - After posting this post, I learnt a lesson that I have not been seeing much of KL except driving straight into buildings all the time. I need to stroll the streets and back lanes of KL sometimes.

    Ichimaru akira - You are most welcome for me to belanja! Let me get my ATM Anton-DK along. LOL

    Joshua - Gosh! You have disappeared for so long dude! Yet you still gets updated on KL better than me.... (Shy me!)

    Bengbeng - I wanna clobber your head lah, talk about belanja! You will aeroplane me one! Ha Ha!

    Evann - I think you are seeing better ones over there!

  11. Lately i read The Star telling a Japanese man telling manga story in railways station, city block etc, (like old days telling story among crowds)somewhere in Japan. His idea touched me.

    Malaysian majority still has this immature mind set, uni graduated should not do "lose face" performance. I personal experienced it, my high school mate looked down on me while i doing low paying job.

  12. Who would wanna look at those dirty mat rempits? The only act they cld probably do is to act out a street fight coz that's wot they do best, or do some turns like rapper wannabees.

  13. Wow so that's not a statue??!! I read your post three times just to make sure lololol!!!!

  14. I will throw 2 bucks at those standing on 2 feet.

    Those sitting on the bench waiting for money to drop can wait long long, even with the overall painted body.

    I know I sound harsh lah. But if u wanna make money, then make a decent effort.

    And I do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright.

Would you make a list of the complete urls of your community pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?

Happy Deepavali To All My Hindu Friends

I had a very hectic day today which drained all my energy. My car's air-con had a leakage and it had to stay overnight at the workshop....
