MR KIASU: EVERYTHING ALSO FIRST CLASS
Deep beneath our airport terminal, a world-class city is being built with utopian idealism. A short distance away under the watchful gaze of Mount Fuji, a mythical legend lurks about in fashionable Tokyo. Mr Kiasu takes us on a wild jet-coaster ride into new physical realms for a surreal mental trip! For someone who strives to be at the top of his game, it’s better to be kiasu than sorry! Never settle for anything less!
It’s First Class or No Class!
After lying low for a while, Singapore icon Mr Kiasu is back… because Kiasu-ism never dies! Right now, not only must he deal with Time (short of), Space (lack of) and Money (not enough), he also has to confront the scariest enemy of all – Aging!
Being over 35 in 21st century Singapore is no joke, with retrenchment, tech disruption and millennials round every corner. Mr Kiasu may not be cool with the digital natives, but in uncertain times, Kiasu 2.0 might be the only answer!
‘Everything Also Act Blur.’ Mr Kiasu continues to find himself in situations where he loses control; where he faces responsibilities that he could not, would not and should not but did. What else could he do but Act Blur.
‘Everything Also Talk Money.’ Money. Money is money. And money, money, money and more money. Money, money, money, and money money money money! Money? Money!! Money money, money or money but money and only money. (Money money money). So money and money and money. Therefore money with money and so money is money and money money. Finally money! money! money! and money.
‘Everything Also Sure Win.’ For Mr Kiasu, everything has to be a sure thing. Whether it is the opening time for the sales or securing that contract with the Japanese. Once he puts on his roller blades, he is ready to go. Winning is everything.
‘Everything Also Scared Lose’ – A very accurate description of Mr Kiasu who is so afraid of losing that he will do anything humanly possible to stay ahead of the competition. It doesn’t matter what others think of him. As far as Mr Kiasu is concerned, it’s a kiasu universe out there and only the kiasuest will survive!
“Everything Also Want Extra”. No, this is not an order for pizza with extras of everything. It’s the title of our fourth book. Mr Kiasu will not settle for less and when he finally gets everything, he wants a little more. Is that kiasu or what?
From ‘Everything Also I Want’ to ‘Everything Also Must Grab’, Mr Kiasu has lived up to his name. Now in Book III, he declares ‘Everything Also Number One’. This is his vision for the next lap. To be number one in everything!
“Everything also must grab.” This is the new war cry for Mr Kiasu as he continues his fight to be the most ‘kiasu’ person alive. This book is compulsory reading for anyone who is not familiar with the word ‘KIASU’ – the buzzword for the 90’s.
“Everything also I want”. This is the war cry of Mr Kiasu as he fights his daily battle in a world full of kiasus. This book is highly recommended for all Singaporeans. In fact it should be compulsory reading in all schools.
