What are you willing to do for US$5?

One night, surfing about like he usually does because he likes to not be asleep in the middle of the night when it's quiet (since he can sleep in any condition, but not be alone with his thoughts then), Kings stumbled on Fiverr.com.  For USD5 you can get someone to do all kinds of stuff ranging from the cool to the boh liau. Like so:

(Ok Kings paid USD10 for this because he wanted video and photos. Then, after Class 95FM has been going on and on about Mother's Day since we got here, my husband says without a touch of irony, "Mother's Day coming meh?" Uh, hello, did you read my blog? So I will take this as my Mother's Day pressie, thank you very much.)

One of the things that never ceases to amaze (or amuse) me is Kings' quirky little talent for remaining oblivious to certain blindingly obvious until it walks up to him and introduces itself. That, and my husband's ability to climb into bed and be seriously asleep in the middle of a fight. (Really. I kicked him in the shin once to be sure. He was totally asleep. OMG my husband invented Opportunistic Narcolepsy.)

Anyway, I went to Fiverr to check it out myself.  Guess what I found:


So anyway - BUAHAHA!!!!!

Want an unusual Mother's Day gift for a Mummy blogger close to you, call Richard.

And btw Fiverr started a few months back, now it's ranked 347 on Alexa. (Look who's laughing now.)

ps: This post was written and posted from a hotel room in Singapore, where the Rockstar is spending Easter at the last minute because a visit from his grandparents didn't work out. Stay tuned, Rockstar In Singapore will answer such gems like "Is the Rockstar in Singapore?" and "Did you meet your husband in a bar?"

(Yes, you know who you are <grin>)

About Aileen

I blog about living and raising my son in Hong Kong - where toddlers have entrance interviews, parents keep test score spreadsheets, private school debentures can trade for more than half a million USD. Raising Rockstar's the most important thing I'll ever do. We show our true colors by the choices we make in bringing up our children. My blog is a message to my toddler son, about what the world and his parents are like today - for when he becomes a teenager and knows everything.

    What a truly unique and off the wall present! But am also slightly freaked out by what some people will do for US$5, e.g. the mum who would give her child your name if you gave her $5.

    Have fun in Singapore!
