Jessica of Hot Legs Nitelub & Karaoke gives Chow Kah tip how to pick up a beautiful woman

[Pixs of models for illustration purpose only]

“Still reading that e-book on how to get a beautiful girlfriend, Chow Kah?” Jessica (pix above) asks.

Chow Kah strokes the back of Jessica's head gently. “Yes, I’m half-way through.”

“Please lend it to me when you’re done with it,” says Hussein, seated across Chow Kah.

“Sure, no problem,” says Chow Kah. He takes a gulp of his Asahi Premium Beer, puts the mug down and turns to look at Jessica, “Any tips from you, Jess? You’re a beautiful woman. Many guys have tried to pick you up before. You should know what works and what doesn’t.”

“Okay. My advice is that ‘Can I buy you a drink?’ is stale. A beautiful woman has heard it countless times. So, a better approach is to sidle up to her and ask ‘Hi there! Aren’t you going to buy me drink?’ " She raises her eyebrows. "See the difference between the two approaches? So, if she responds with 'Why should I’ or if she laughs, follow up with ‘If you meet a handsome man, you should buy him a drink, shouldn’t you?’ ”

“Wow! That’s a creative pick-up line, but I’m not handsome,” says Chow Kah.

“Never mind,” says Wati (pix below). “A display of self-confidence and humour are qualities that attract women.”

“Indeed a great suggestion,” says Chow Kah, nodding in agreement. “I’ll try it some day.”

“Why not now?” suggests Wati. “Just now, I saw a group of office workers sitting at the bar. A bunch of men and women, all in their early twenties.”

Rising from the sofa, Jessica takes a few strides to the door, opens it and sticks her head out. “They’re still there. I can see their backs.”

Chow Kah goes to the doorway and looks out. “There’s a babe wearing pants and dress shirt. She’s got nice silky long hair. Also tall -- that's my taste.” Chow Kah rubs his hands gleefully, eyes sparkling with interest. “Come guys, watch me in action.” He strides out of the karaoke room.

Jessica, Wati, Hussein and I stand in the doorway to look. I catch a whiff of perfume from the two women.

I see Chow Kah swagger up to the long-haired girl in pants and talk to her over her shoulder.

Chow Kah suddenly strides back to the karaoke room, his face as red as a lobster, while Wati (pix below) giggles. "What happened," she asks.

The long-haired babe whom Chow Kah tries to pick up turns around (bottom pix) and Wati shrieks, "Kantoi!"

Hi, again Ed. Actually it is your latest novel that draws me to your blog. Seriously, your blog is not really my cup of tea. I mean you should be able to make that out from my google user name. Okay, so this is not a comment. It is a personal message to you.

I know I got the name right. Did a search and found your blog. Oh, if you do remember who called you "Ed" some 20 years ago, you'll remember me.

Congratulations! on the new novel. From the write up, I must say, I never thought you had such wild imagination. It must be good for it to get publish. Hey if you want to do some catching up email me


First, thank you for buying my novel. Sorry, as my grey matter has been damaged by too much Asahi Premium beer, I don't remember who called me "Ed" some 20 years ago. I'm at the tail end of completing another novel -- packed with sex and violence and humour -- which I will announce once it comes off press.
