master ho

I caught this successful attempt to get into the Guinness Book of World Records at Jonker Street, Melaka. Master Ho, among other things, is renowned for having the fastest finger this side of town. His famous fingers have jabbed more coconuts than you can shake a stick (or finger) at.

Ho Swee Poh (the self dubbed Master Ho) and his merciless index finger managed to pierce 4 coconuts within a minute, thereby securing a spot in the book of records.

Other possible careers:
Cell phone QC tester
(if the phone doesn’t shatter when Master Ho dials a number, it has his seal of approval)

What others? ;)

  1. What others? U know, i know! Haha

  2. hohoho Master Ho, truly a malaysian spirit, breaking every records out there that nobody wants to attempt

  3. Do you ever watch Southpark? Your description of Master Ho’s prodigious gift brings to mind the episode where the guys form a boy band – they call it “Finger Bang” — worth a search.
    While you’re digging, you may want to check out “The Shocker,” though this requires more digits than Master Ho used for his coconut feat.
    Joking aside, the “Two Finger Cul de Sac” technique really works… Master Ho – with his mighty index finger – might want to look into that. It’s a real people pleaser.

  4. Last question..sounds fishy fishy! Haha!

  5. Yah watched this fella busting coconuts with his finger before, he’s insane. And his finger is pretty much mutated into a solid stump.
    It’s all a rouse to sell his tincture.

  6. shaoweii: Haha! He might cause greivious bodily harm with that finger of his if he attempted that. ;)
    KY: File under: Dubious acheivements. ;)
    JhnHth: Yup, I’m a big fan of South Park. I’ve watched that episode. I doubt Master Ho here can do the Two Finger Cul de Sac though…I fear for the woman he does that to. Just might poke a finger sized hole right through. ;)
    chefmel: Haha! No la, when we saw this, we had a number of hilarious comments about what other career paths he can pursue. ;)
    ShaolinTiger: Yup, it’s all to sell his snake oil tincture. :)
    His fingers were terribly swollen by the end of the poking session.

  7. I don’t get it for the last question..

  8. definitely wouldnt wanna be at the receiving end of that almighty goldfinger.
    esp when one’s back’s turned. “Kam Sau Zhi?”

  9. Shirley Snow: I meant what other career paths do you reckon Master Ho can take with his Fingers of Fury. ;)
    I wouldn’t let him use my notebook for sure, not with those fingers. Hehe.
    J2Kfm: Hahahaha! I just learned that term this year. Gold finger. :)

  10. I saw him in Malacca – he does a good show, and also was selling an ointment for rubbing on sore muscles etc :)

  11. Ooo.. Hihi^^ I got it ady.. Last night, maybe a little bit blur… Maybe coz after took the medicine then my brain can’t really process. ;p

  12. julian: I caught him in Melaka too! It was at Jonker Street. Yeah, he sells some kind of oil for injuries. :)
    Shirley Snow: Heh! It’s okay. :)

  13. Science is a wonderful thing if one does not have to earn one’s living at it.
