If I had a million dollars

It's like a fantasy ... what would you do if you have a million dollars? I had a conversation today with a friend about this topic, and we were a little boring ... you know, a million USD is great, but a million ringgit is nothing. It won't even buy you a decent mansion.

Anyways, now I'm home, I had sometime to think about this, so here goes ...

- It's gotta a million USD first and foremost. Else this fantasy disappears.

- I'm so going to quit my job to travel the world on backpacks, now that my money worries are behind me.

- I'm going to meet a beautiful Japanese girl travelling the world while I'm backpacking in China. We'll fall madly in love. Decided to backpack together for the next 2 months in China.

- We'll travel to Tokyo next where I got rejected by her conservative parents, despite my 2 month long attempt to win over them. So I leave for Korea next.

- In Korea, I fell in love with a Korean girl, without knowing she's dying from some incurable disease (this is SO Korean drama-ish). I found that out eventually, and I stayed on for a while, tried to cheer her up, but she ended up dying in my arms on a beautiful autumn day in a field of magnolia blossoms while we were having picnic. *tsk tsk*

- Broken hearted, Moz decided to fly to Hawaii. Here he lived a peaceful existance for a few months, patching is broken heart.

- Recovered, Moz flies to South America where he met a tribal girl called Pocahantus. There was always some attraction, but the threat of a poison dart landing in his ass compliments of Pocahantus' dad, Chief Lubricated Sheep, freaked Moz out.

- Moved on to US of A for a 9 month trek across the country. By this time, I'm pretty unkempt and unshaven. Mistaking me for Forrest Gump, people started following me on my jogs, only to realise after 2 months I'm just a fat Asian dude. Thus they deserted me. In the middle of Nevada.

- Hitch-hiked and was picked up by Orlando Bloom, who took me to New York. And introduced me to Richard Gere.

- Joined Richard on a meditation retreat in Tibet, where I met the Dalai Lama, who proclaimed me as "Moz the Messed up 3rd eye chakra dude". Got into a love triangle between Richard Gere, me and a lovely Tibetan girl. Unable to match Richard's charming good looks, I lost out.

- Went to the Middle East, where I was called "Muzillah Mun-Sadr" by the locals. Started making connections with the oil barons in the region. Stayed for a few years until my camels were stolen by some al-Qaeda operatives in the middle of a desert sand storm.

- Freaked out, I leave the Middle East to come home to Malaysia.

- With oil prices having increased by RM1.20 since I left, I came back ridden with debt. The million bucks is worth nothing ...

*Sigh* ... I can't even fantasize ....

cheng sim: Hehe ... sometimes, after some drinks in a beer company logo-ed mug, my imagination goes wild.

But - hush - you're not at that age yet, are you?

Sheena said...

My gosh, you get a million bucks, and you STILL can't get a girl? In your FANTASIES?

Pessimistic does not even begin to describe you...

moz monster said...

sheena: Well, in my fantasy, I always went around with people ten times richer, and a few times better looking.

Who says the rich man will get the girl anyways? Or are all girls attracted to the $$$??
