You know, thanks to the British media, one of perceived behavior that we Malaysians think most Americans have is that they will sue the ass out of you at any minor opportunity.
Bearing that in mind, if any of you Americans are reading, check this out:
This is a property listing on one of those online marketplace websites in Malaysia. I want to draw to your attention to that “1 min drive to Setia SPICE Arena” statement.
If you want to know which property this is, you can easily Google for “1080 square feet new condominium Sungai Ara”. I believe you will get 2 different property names. They are supposed to be side by side when their construction completes so the concept below still applies regardless. Or if you really want to pursue this, you can let me know in private after this.
Now, this listing is posted not by the developer itself, but by one of the many yahoo real estate agents in Penang. I can prove to you that this agent is lying through his teeth with this listing.
Here, see this Google Maps snippet:
This is the route from said new property to Setia SPICE Arena. As you can see, if you drive, it is 3.5 kilometers (2.2 miles) away.
Let’s ignore that 10 minutes indication because that is the estimated time on normal traffic times. Let’s assume it is 2 AM in the morning and the roads are completely devoid of traffic.
To drive 3.5 kilometers in 1 minutes, you will have to be going at 210 kilometers per hour (130 miles per hour). Bear in mind that the road is not straight, there are 5 corners to take, and there are 2 traffic light with potential to stop you. I can bet my testicles that not even a Bugatti Veyron can do this 3.5 km in 1 minute.
So, the property agent is lying. And here’s my proposal to you. You can call this agent up and buy said property through him, and then you can do what you do best by suing his ass off for lying. If you hire a good lawyer, I think you will have a 99.99% chance of winning. You’ll end up with a free condominium unit which you can then sell it off even at below market price and make a quick buck.
You can even engage me to provide more information, for a minimal fee of course.
Nice eh? 😉
PS: As you can see how I spontaneously decided to post up some random sarcastic bullshit for no good reason on a Friday night, I guess it is safe to say that I definitely am feeling a bit more… not to say motivated, but rather… a bit more inclined to make new blog posts at shorter intervals these days.
