54k for a Proposal? Wtf.

Here's what 54k can buy you, instead.

1. 1,800 glasses of ultimate long island tea from TGIF - that's one LIT a day for 5 YEARS
2. 10,800 plates of decent chicken rice - that's one chicken rice a day for 29 YEARS
3. The ENTIRE WEDDING - including studio pictures, dresses, and the freaking dinner!
4. Peroduo Myvi - CASH.
5. Petrol FOR your Myvi for 14 YEARS.
5. 10% down payment of a condo unit in PJ
6. Feed 49 hungry children from poverty & famine stricken countries for one whole year. (assuming USD1 = RM3)
7. 3,600 new movies, that's one movie every week for 69 YEARS
8. A bouquet of FLOWERS for EVERY SINGLE VALENTINES DAY for 360 YEARS! That's like FOUR GENERATIONS!

okay, I've got to get back to work. Now YOU think of something.

  2. Thanks for the insight :P

    Daily bouquet of flowers for a year
    68 PSPs
    3,000 plates of carbonara at Pizza Uno
    2,700 tapas at La Bodega
    207 years of subscription for The Edge Weekly
    865 years of The Star daily
    1,200 music CDs
    12 return economy class tickets to LA

    (assuming no inflation and current prices)

    What would you do with RM54k, if you can only choose one thing?

    And how would you react if the billboard was for you?

    FA: I would beat the idiot to death. UNLESS the fucker is a billionaire and has wayyyyy too much money in his hands - then yeah he can do whatever he wants. :)

  3. Resurrected - She'd beat her BF to death if the billboard was for her! She's an ACCOUNTANT! So much better to invest the money and make MORE MONEY!!!! :-)

    FA - RM54K can buy a trip to Aussie to visit Dabido for a month or two and still have money to play with. :-)
    Actually ... RM54K? I already have that in my bank accounts! ha ha! :-)
    [No, I'm spending it all on ME! It's going towards the deposit for a house eventually!] :-)

    CA,
    it is such a financially-irrational act that he did not really spoil the market at all. :P

  13. if he can throw away 54K for a proposal now, then it would be just as easy for him to throw another 54K for "another proposal" in the future?

    ReplyDelete
  14. You're a bit late to this eh? Anyway the company he works for (and his father owns) is the owner of the billboard and it was only there for one day. So he probably just paid for the printing of the 'ad'.

    FA: Yeah. Meant to put it up last week but was busy.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Hi. He's a friend. It'll be nice for us to be happy for him. He's getting married to someone he loves after all. Think about it.

    FA: Actually I'm indifferent about it. I just wanted to put the sum into perspective. Not all of us poorfucks have the pleasure to be able to splurge or even see so much of money at one go.

  16. Horny Girl..

    You Jealous?

    COme I take pictures of you.

  17. true.. waste of money.

    54k could get u...

    1000 cans of isomil advance - that can feed 6 kids from birth till they reach 3 y.o.

    270 dinner treat (at a budget of myr200 per meal) - you can choose to treat ur family/friends every month for the next 22 yrs or every night for the next 9 months

    18 iPhones for 17 happy friends + urself - if you buy it @ myr2900

    oh well.. here's to a lasting marriage!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I would splurge RM54k on you. Just because. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  19. For just one day ? . . . I just saw it 15mins ago !!! . . . hehehehe :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. He's thinking out of the box? Who is he kidding? It's been done already. Didn't someone use billboards to declare his undying love to his wife at their anniversay last year? Same concept!
    If it was me, i'd rather he donate the 54k to a charity in my name or something like dat. Dat would be way more meaningful. No?
    Wat he did was js a stupid waste of money even if he had the money to burn.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Agreed with shaolinTiger... But still unforgivable that this guy wasted like a few k or less for the ads print and spoil the proposal-cost market in coming few months before yours or mine or even his girl friend forget about this case that they will ask for like at least a 10k or more proposal excluding the ring because the paper said that's 54k.

    Good luck to you and you and you who planned to propose to your significant half in this few months, hope your gf forget that figure soon.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Well, it is his choice as to how he wants to propose but I think given 5 years max, he will be wondering wtf made him spend that amount on getting a woman! Wahahahaa....

    Seriously, I don't think any sane woman would like their man to spend RM54K in that manner. Perhaps a RM54K diamond ring or a downpayment for a house in her name, solely in her name would have impressed her better. Hehehe.. I know I would. I will smack my bf if he did such an idiotic thing! RM54K on a billboard proposal!

    Yah what! RM54K you know! What if this clown dont have the money and is doing all these on credit?? Can you imagine marrying him and having to help him pay for it? that is double FCUK la!

  23. I bet someone, somewhere already planning to propose through a tv advert right now.

  24. How Dare This Fellow Flaunt His Wealth in our poor Plebian face? So what if he got money.... he should spend the way WE the ordinary citizens demand as in the comments above... bloody hell the government should outlaw rich people rubbing in our face their wealth.. all people should drive proton so that nobody feel inadequate with what they have...

    ReplyDelete
  36. can buy 25,400 durex comfort

  37. with 54K , I will use it to buy a house

    ReplyDelete
  38. looks to me like the 54k is used to buy a 'yes' from the girl.

    how to say no when a huge billboard is staring down at you?

    to the guy, what a safe way to propose, kinda ball-less, but safe.
