Tulan lah

lim peh ka li kong

Before carry on reading, from the title of this post, you should know it is not meant for the minors.

Let this be the last ranting of my blog for year 2007 (though my posts are seldom rants but jokes more than often).

Do you like copy cats? Do you like to have copy cats neighbours?

Knn, lim peh tell you ah, there are more than 1 copy cat staying near us.

Usually, if one were to copy another person's idea, he will do it discreetly or secretly, hoping that you will not know he is stealing your ideas BUT lim peh's 2 neighbours actually have the face to copy ideas from us and then buay pai seh one, openly showing to everyone that they copied our ideas.

My cha-bo-lang had designed our house 4 years back and guess what? The 2 kns neighbours actually renovated their houses recently (2 different units) copying some of our designs.

The neighbour on our left copied about 4 items but the neighbour on our right copied about 90% of the designs of our house.

From the handrail of our stairways, to the balcony design, to the shoe racks, to the porch holes, to the pillar-less front patio, to the entrance design leading to the kitchen, to the windows, to the sliding doors, and even to the house unit number plates etc.

Wah-piangz, copy until 出面, some more so openly coming to the front of our house standing out there like a bloody ku ku bird, staring at our design and later on, his own house was renovated just like ours, looking like a photocopy unit.

Then, when my cha-bo-lang planted a certain type of plant (the first in our neighbourhood) outside our gate, in the next few weeks, the neighbourhood will also start to have the same plant as ours. I don't wanna guess how they got the same plant but the poor plant my cha-bo-lang planted had been secretly cut in a rather crude way leaving the plant having a rather unpleasant view.

Come on, if you want to have the seeds of our plant, all you have to do is press our doorbell and ask from us and not stealing it behind our back.

I really don't know what our copy cat neighbours think cos anybody who looks at our house and then looks at their house, the similarity is so obvious. Worse than celebrities 撞衫 cos you can change your dress immediately but a renovated house?!?!?

Every time me and my cha-bo-lang go for our evening stroll after our dinner, lim peh will walk by the copy cats' house and lim peh sure @#$%&* as we walk pass the photocopy houses.

To our 2 neighbours, lim peh say 凸 凸 to both of you!

lim peh kong wan liao

    aiyoh limpeh,

    think of it this way. your house and garden are SOOOO good that someone would what to copy it.

    nevermind they'd sneaky enough to steal plants as well. it was YOUR idea in the first place for renovation.

    you could try helping the neighbour "trim" their new plants.....? Botak is the fashion for stolen plants i do believe....

    Usually, when people copy house until so accurate as to want an exact replica, there is a deeper reason other than admiration of your decoration skill. For eg. Feng Shui. They think you are doing very well due to good placement of furniture and architectural design and so want to emulate, or "snatch" away some of your good feng shui. Else why so lao shi dong zhong, to painstakingly imitate accurately, right? Such an explanation makes sense because it makes their behaviour "rationale" and "understandable". The alternate explanation would be they are shen jing bing, whose behaviouir cannot be explained, which doesnt make much sense...

    Eh... it was mostly my cha-bo-lang's ideas and designs, not mine.

    She really has good taste, just look at the husband she is with, ha ha :p

    No la, lim peh cannot be cruel to the innocent plant however I don't mind trimming the sneaky owner's head to botak head.

    One thing for sure your next door can never copy from you.... your cute 杉女.

    Kam siah and Happy New Year to you.

    Yeah, happy that others think highly on our design but still tulan everytime lim peh walk pass the copy-cat house.

    No la, don't think it is because of Feng Shui cos Feng Shui caters to different individuals and not a "free for all" style. Maybe I should just take some photos of the copy-cat's house and upload them here to share.

    Those who can't lead follow in the rear. You should feel good and proud that your house is so nice until your neighbors want to copycat it :D
