I'm still busier than a bee but I was just taking a breather while waiting for some prints to be ready. Just as I finished reading this article on some fat burner products, I happen to notice this news story from the Star online.
It was so bloody funny not to mention pathetic that I just couldn't help but post about it. They is a service online called 'Rent a Friend' and they charge from as low as RM29 an hour with fees surging up to RM149.50 per hour to rent a friend! Hahahahaha! Sorry but I seriously can't help laughing. I think this is one of the most ridiculous things to have cropped up in a long time.
Apparently the founder of this website says the website was set up solely to provide friends for rent and not a channel to provide sexual services (yeah, right) or online matchmaking. And better yet, since the setting up of this website, apparently 280,000 people have registered themselves to be rented as friends while 3,000 others on the list of willing to pay for an hour of friendship!
Why in the world would anyone want to rent a friend la? Don't tell me that person is so horrible that they don't have a single friend and need to rent one for an hour? Besides, how can they even be called a friend when you have to pay for their company. I'm sure a lot of people would probably abuse this service and use it for something more sleazy in nature, if you get my drift.
Besides, if you really have to rent a friend, I feel sorry for you! LOL!
