"Does David Gan expect everyone in S'pore to recognise him?"

THE store was closed, period.

Is David Gan suggesting that it should admit a customer after closing hours just because she is Zhang Ziyi?

Also, is he expecting everyone in Singapore to know who she is and recognise her? I, for one, would not recognise her if I see her in the street. I would probably think she is just another pretty girl.

If I read between the lines correctly, Ziyi was not upset. Maybe David was. And that must be because he expects everyone in Singapore to know him.

Frankly, except for people in the fashion and entertainment industries,how many Singaporeans know David Gan?

They should be in a circus together! That clown with giant goggles and a string tied round his neck on his wedding day got to be that baldy barber idea of a weird fashion!

In the previous National Day Rally, PM Lee mentioned his name as someone exemplary to be given our citizenship, perhaps it leads to his Mega Ego now. Problem is, if he has any inkling of awareness and shame about his own ill-bred crude mannerisms, he would have stayed behind the scenes.

I don't think it's fair to criticise him for his lack of education. Perhaps, he really was just unfortunate to be deprived of a chance to go to school.

But if he thinks he's some celestial being just because he can hang among the stars, he should be put in place.

And even if you are a big star, so what? Unless I happen to be a loony die hard fan of yours, you are just another human being who happens to be making big bucks in the entertainment industry.

so right dude. you can't buy class with money. he should just stick to being a hair stylist, not a fashion stylist, wedding planner, or whatever crap he thinks he can do. and stop showing off your designer garbage when you can't even read or write. pathetic really!

Like Christopher Lee, both were unknown Malaysian kampong boys who found their pots of gold here! While baldy is just a pampering barber, the other weirdo had
recently married into a rich local actress fortune after being jailed and chided by a local judge for being a real life coward! Ever wonder that we only attract third world foreigners here?

That short *** is a busybody, always getting in the way of celebrities- kind of like a mouse trying to walk side by side an elephant- so that people can see him! He probably got some in-built inferiority complex about people unable to notice him because he is a midget! It doesn't help with his stupid-looking baseball cap he has on all the time to cover his baldy head! Does he also sleep with it? Good heavens!
