A reader pointed me to this photo and this thread in Sammyboy's forums.
I don't know who took it but I am deeply offended by it. Hello, why must you photograph me at an angle that makes me look fat, eh?
Oh, and apparently, this photo somehow shows my deep adoration of DPM Teo Chee Hean, who was the Guest of Honour for the event I attended.
Other choice quotes from the thread:
- "Hoping for business lobang."
- "He looks like a dog yearning for a bone. I feel tempted to throw him one. Maybe he will look on me with the same expression."
- "That look on his face looks like he willing to do anything just to please (that PAP crony)!"
Next time I go to an event because of the free balloons, goodie bag (there was a nice t-shirt inside) and the free grub (chicken pie and curry puff was awesome), and I am introduced to the DPM, I need to remember to look like I dislike him and want to pick a fight with him (maybe offer my controversial interpretation of The Pledge), in case photographers take my unflattering and scandalous photos.
Actually, at that juncture, I believe I was thinking of what I was going to buy at Sim Lim Square after the event, because the IT mall was just next door. And also thinking of having another go at the grub.
The correct caption/thought balloon should have been: "I wonder when DPM will finish telling his story so that I can duck into Sim Lim Square to buy my Razer Orochi mouse. Maybe I will grab one more chicken pie before I go. Mmmmm, chicken pie..."
