Boss! Secondhand Rolex, mahu?


I have been loitering around various places during my lunch hour, dodging security and soliciting strangers in an attempt to sell off my Rolex (looks like the one here for your reference: It’s harder than it sounds, most people look at me with a mixture of apprehension and disdain when I approach them. It wasn’t a very successful experiment. People are very skeptical when selling in this kind of an environment, if you know what you are doing and have read a guide to the Rolex Daytona or any other watch for the matter, then you will have more confidence when buying from sketchy dudes like me in that situation.

…perhaps a lot of it had to do with the fact that I accidentally let slip about the Rolex being stolen goods while attempting to hock it to a couple of women walking out of their office. My friend was there to film me coz I bet I could sell it (the watch is hers) and my less-than-successful attempts cracked her up.

There’s gotta be a better way to go about this. I mean seriously, who does this anymore in the Internet generation? I want an easier way to sell stuff I don’t need – easy being the keyword here. I’m not going to stand around looking dodgy and approach random people. There’s got to be an easier way.

Mudah is the BM word for easy. I’m a bit low on cash so I tried to…er, make my services available on this online marketplace. I advertised under Services – 27 year old for sale, reasonably sane, overseas educated, available for the low, low price of RM 20,000 a night.

It didn’t get listed. πŸ™

I’m not giving up though. I have a lot of stuff lying around at home that I can sell on to help tide me through the month. I’m testing what does and does not contravene their TermsΒ & Conditions to maximize the wares I can sell. πŸ™‚


I have a slanting breakfast bar which requires a plastic container to prop it up to a reasonable angle. I’m willing to let it go for RM 300. Installation and dismantling charges not included. I’ll throw in the garbage bags for free if you come and pick it up yourself.


This is a bottle of CK Eternity purchased in 1997. I’m serious. It has undergone an aging process for more than a decade and I’ve barely used it. I’ll let it go for RM 400. My rationale for the higher price is that alcohol is more expensive when it’s been aged. Eau de toilette has alcohol. πŸ™‚


All kidding aside, I got a call from Sony Malaysia telling me that I’ve won a TV. I’m serious. I bought a Sony alpha 350 dSLR earlier this year and the people at Sony Style filled up a contest form for me with proof of purchase. Well, I was informed that I won a Sony TV from that contest and I’ll have to pick it up from Sony Style. I don’t need a TV but I need the cash so I’m going to list that on as soon as I pick it up. No, I’m not selling my dSLR. :p


You can conveniently buy and sell on anytime, anywhere. Property, cars, cell phones, computers, and more can be found listed on the site. It’s a Malaysian online marketplace too so you don’t have to worry about customs and expensive postal charges. The possibilities are endless!

It’s particularly useful for those of us who works long hours. I can buy stuff and get it delivered right to the office.


The convenience of getting gifts for your loved ones online nullifies the effort and time required to go browsing about traditional brick and mortar establishments. facilitates this – I can order a gift online, get the seller to deliver it to my office and pass it right after work.


It didn’t go down too well though. Perhaps cacing merah (red worms) wasn’t the best choice. I just thought it would be useful for fishing. *shrugs*


The Toyota Vios 1.5G was a hit though. Spoil your loved ones (or yourself) by browsing through the “marketplace of Malaysia” and pick an item at rock bottom prices. – the possibilities are endless! πŸ™‚

  1. Wooahh.. How much did you try and sell it for? I would have bought it if it was the right price. Lol…
    Yes Mudah is so easy to buy and sell stuff. Provided you got nice stuff to sell la. Unlike me, I’m a hoarder. I love keeping my old stuff thinking I may need to use it again some time in the future.
    But Eternity for RM400? Come onnnnn!!! πŸ˜›

  2. your hair your hair!!! Hahaha. Very Ah Beng! Maybe you should pimp your car too. with loud “exzos” and all. Like ah beng back in Kuching(and sibu) =D

  3. i remember one time when I made an inquiries about a vios on and man the seller was very rude and I have no idea what the hell was she mumbling ahah but not mudah’s fault, it was a bad seller

  4. I always liked CK one, but 2 years ago, asked a gf what she wanted for Christmas. DKNY Apple, in a tiny little apple shaped bottle. $90 for 1/2 oz, it was insane. but so was I , cause I bought it for her ;).

  5. next step is letting the seller themself deliver the present??? πŸ˜€
    than you give a few dollars more and he will give a custom card into it
    like “name1: …. name2: …. ” lol
    i totally could imagine:
    a totally unknown man standing on the street going to your friend
    telling him : “i have a present from…. ehhhh… mr/mrs whatever” for you

  6. HB, when I saw the CK One that brought back the time as a 14 years old I was stupid. Got caught for shoplifting CK One on a dare by a friend. Both landed in the store office and called home.
    Mom punish me by working in babysitting( ME) job to paid 300.00 in fine for it. Never again. You do the crime you do the time.

    danny: Nope, being super skinny was a side effect of doing meth last time. Now I’m back to my regular weight. Well, not regular, I’m gaining weight probably coz of all the food I eat. πŸ™‚
    No relapse, have been clean ever since. =D

  8. dear HB;
    Couple thing i have learned,just recnetly at age 50. Be cautious, on water slides, ladders , cars, etc… In your heart, you are still young, and always remember that but… oh yeah, LOVE is a verb, not a noun. Help others to help yourself. That sounds like so much bs, but it is true.

  9. sorry, HB, don’t matter what color ( or colour) you choice, you are still an honorable man. by any standard. with your website, you have helped many. Thank-you,Sir.

  10. Sorry, Hb. At the risk of offending many, I will say, Easter comming up, and Passover though I am a beliver in JC, and believe in a monotheastic God, wich includes Judiasm I, Christianaty, and Islam would do no dissrerpect to others. Or Islam. Though I do not understand. That being said, I would ask for the same respect towards mine. Have you ever seen a metodist do a car bombing. Well, I guess, in northern Ireland.

  11. erin: Thanks! πŸ™‚
    Hmm…I don’t know much about cuttings really. I just go with what works. πŸ˜‰
    Jade Zheng: Haha! This is why I’m coloring it back to black. It’s black now. πŸ™‚
    YilingL: Eh, nowadays have to protray a legitimate front. Black hair better. πŸ˜‰

    tom: Nope, it sounds wise my friend. Thanks for the kind comments.
    Yeah, Easter is coming up. Take care tom and be well. πŸ™‚
