I was in a middle of a dream getting promoted to superscale G when it was rudely interrupted by the ringing of my mobile phone. I peered at my watch, which reported the dead of night at 3.12 am.
"Eh...do you know what time is it or not?"
"This is M."
Alamak. The boss.
"I need you to get something for me, for a special occasion."
"But I've just sent this month's supply of your favourite Taiwanese por...erm...research DVDs to you, sir."
"I know, but this is different. There is to be a gathering of local Singaporean bloggers organized by our sister department - the Singapore Hideous Initiative to Nullify dissEnt, and they need something to get those darned bloggers talking, so that everything they say can be video-taped..."
"Exactly. And you know what I'm talking about, right?"
"I know just the thing, sir. Just mix it in their free drinks and it'll be sure to make them intoxicated enough to divulge every single detail for our brothers in white to catch them where we want them."
"Very good. You'll receive information on where to send the package in your e-mail."
With that, he hung up.
The next morning, after a few calls to my usual contacts I picked up my package at the neighbourhood Bin-lang (betel nut) shop. 10x strength betel-nut capsules, just the thing to numb the brain without any stained teeth. Very difficult to find, unless you know the right people, that is.
Hmm...Woodlands Regional Library...
Interesting place to hold a blogger convention.
