From the Malaysia New Straits Times....
A casual stroll to McDonalds near Petaling Street, Kuala Lumpa, cuased me to lose hard-earned RM30. Apparantly if you are male, you're the target of VCD peddlers who promote the latest in pornography. A peddler approached me and as usual I declined. He tugged at my sleeve annd drew me to a discreet location and went into a 10 minute hard sell of his goods at "best possible value". I made a number of excuses from being broke to saying I had plenty of pornography at home! He was unmoved. I saw no end and decided to part with some money because he was getting on my nerves. Another mistake. I had only RM50 note in my wallet and seeing the amount he persuaded me to part with more for "value for money" goods. I told him I owed my mother RM30 and needed to pay hew back urgently. He said it was better to owe my mother than a loan shark! Although I retrieved RM20, I lost my mood for lunch. Now I am guilty of supporting pornography and piracy. I vow never to set foot in Petaling Street again. Ever.
