Of Cheap Porno and Gay Books

Over the weekend, there was this giant Book, DVD and CD sale going on at the Perth Convention Exhibition Center. They claimed it to be the largest and best of cheap bargains ever happened in Western Australia. Being suspicious and doubtful as I usually am, I decided to drag my huge heavy ass down to the city and have a look-see if there was anything worth spending my limited cash for. After all, they said it was cheap sale, did they not?



The showroom was already super jam-packed with living creatures called humans from God-knows-where. Those Australians are not that dissimilar to us Kuching/Malaysian people either, whenever there is a huge sale or good bargain happening, people would step over each other and pull hairs and hearts out just to have their hands on the items they want. Darn those vultures, they are everywhere !!

I took a quick tour around the whole place, it was really huge. I believe it was the same hall they used for Sexpo.. I could be wrong in this. Aheemm... Sexpo.. sorry, I just want to mention that again... Sexpo...

Anyway.. back to the giant sale... where you find..

Books...




Dvds...




and.. Cds..




The advertisement I have seen on the television the night before strongly indicated the unbelievably low prices and good quality products they have in store. I did spot some items with incredibly low prices alright...

Like the following CDs...



Who is that singer again??



Have you heard of that artist??

Oh well, no wonder they were selling for 1 buck only.... Shhheeeesssshhh...

And there I thought I could find some rare Cds that could not be found in Malaysia record store collections, at very low prices. Same goes to the Dvds and books. Worse still, the Dvd titles were so ancient that I thought probably video cassettes were invented after dvds. Yes, it was that bad, I could not even spot a single movie title that I actually recognised !! I felt so cheated. Similarly, the books were not doing very good either. None of my favourite authors were present there. No Stephen King, no Agatha Christie, no John Grisham... Heck, forget Harry Potter and LOTR. None !!!!

You know what actually annoyed me the most?? The books, dvds and cds appeared to be superbly large in amount and variety from a far-look, the number of the display tables were just near uncountable. However, looks can always be deceiving. Try picking up a random title of book, dvd or cd, then remember the title page/cover, walk over to the next 3-4 rows ahead from where you were standing, and you will most definitely find the exact same item there. WTF !!! This happens again and again and it repeated itself all over the places. You can find one similar item at possibly 10 different spots scattered all around the showroom. Goodness, why could they not just group all the similar items at one place and make it less bloody annoying for the people to see the same thing again and again??

As I was skimming through the books section.... I found something for Cheng Sim (click)



Yeeeehaaaa.. Giant Banana...


As I was strolling at the dvd section, to my surprise... I find something rather unexpected, something I think only Wuching (click) can truly appreciate.



What what what !!!! There is plenty more !!



And they are all over the places !!




No no.. I did not buy any for myself.. Aheeeem... honest... didnt...who needs those when you can get unlimited downloads with broadband

I was thinking maybe this is the best opportunity for me to grab some gifts for virtually any given occasions, like farewell gift, birthday present or maybe souvenirs for those people in hometown when I do fly home. Heck this made me sound like a cheapskate. But hey, seriously, if one truly look through everything, I believe one can find something really good and valuable out of all those craps. Not to mention at such dirt cheap prices.

Coincidentally, I thought of my good friend Ivan (click). Ohh probably he is going to need this book.



When I was just about to fork out my cash for this book, I just glanced over something even more appropriate and helpful for Ivan. Something I am sure he would relate to extensively and thank me for the rest of his life for buying him.




Alright, maybe I should look harder. Darn, it was so hard to find good stuff there. What a let down.

  14. Perhaps the Dewan Pustaka should print some of these titles - will definitely make sure they don't go bankrup with howtogrowpapayas books.

    Can you imagine a Gay and Lesbian guide to Malayisa?
