So when he retired, I was still in Standard 4 and still not know that my awesome dad worked in Special Force until I was big enough to understand it all.
Then it was too late to appreciate what he did. Now, I guess why he got excited at any combat movies explained it all. And how he dragged his family to watch combat movies at the cinemas.
Growing up I was very intrigued by the thought of becoming a spy. Isn't it awesome. Living in a dark mysterious life, always on the go with some top secret missions? Talk about adrenaline rush, all the time! Wow.
And why in the movies, we rarely see female spies. Ah well, except Totally Spies but that's a cartoon so it doesn't count. All we get were the (in)famous James Bond whose only true skill(s) was to seduce females, villain or no villain. Pfftt.
So what if I'm a spy? A Russian spy to be exact. Don't ask me why Russian. I am trying to win a Nuffnang contest here. Hiks.
So what if I'm a Russian spy? First of all, I must look Russian-ish no?
It's a must have for every spy. Spies will look so uncool without their gadgets. And how I'm supposed to be a spy without all the hi-tech customize gadgets? I mean even Inspector Gadget has his gadgets and that's where he got his name. And for my mission, I choose:
1. Sony bloggie™ Camera
2. Laptop Backpack
Camera is to capture the evidence and spying purpose. Laptop backpack to carry the super cool hi-tech laptop that I'll be using to communicate with my superior about the mission and sunglasses to look good. Ehem, I mean we have to look good regardless what the missions are, right?
Since I am a novice in this whole spying business, it would only be fair that I'll be entrusted with a small mission to begin with. So as per instructed by my superior, my mission is to find.......
THE BEST FACIAL/SPA IN TOWN!
Oh.. Now that is (quite) challenging!
First of all, I would read lots and lots of review from the Internet, the source of everything, of the best spa and facial treatment in town. Then seductively, I will go to each and every one of them to try out without having to pre-book since these places are normally exclusive and busy that you have to book weeks if not months ahead before your appointment. This negotiating skill is a skill that only top notch spy can acquire.
After I got myself a place in these exclusive spas, I will try to dig out the secret products and techniques that they have been using and capture the evidences using Sony bloggie™ Camera given to me earlier without having the therapist notice it. If I can have it my way, I will intogerate the therapist in order to hand me the secret but I will not jeopardize my identity as my spy career is a long way to go, so I settle for more subtle way. After the session finished, I will quickly transfer those images to my superior and walkaway happily, with the stylish sunglasses in my hand, as the mission is accomplished.
This message will self-destruct in 5 seconds.
