The "Undilah Saya" Test

There was a time when I read about the snail experiment done by Pinkpau and I thought of doing the same thing over MSN. This time however, I utilised the election fever that can still be felt around the nation and randomly MSN-ed almost everyone in my MSN contact list, no matter what their status were. Here is how it worked. Basically, I MSN-ed them with a short message "Undilah saya" accompanied with a cheeky emoticon which has raised moving eyebrowns.
Here is the responses that I got.
1. Calvin says:
undilah saya
Calvinsanity says:

* This happened because I had asked for his home address earlier that day and worried that I might send him a group of loan sharks.

Here is a recap of all the responses that I got:
  • Shi Han a.k.a calvinsanity gave me a death threat.
  • Kok Hong refused to accept my RM200 bribe, unless I give a better offer.
  • Stan got blurred.
  • Jane didn't know what to do and therefore laughed.
  • Lasilasi got tulan-ed with this expression =.=
  • Chong Keat will vote for me with a RM100 bribe.
  • Michelle answered me through Skype.
  • Reena refused to my offer no matter how much I were to offer her.
  • Clement will accept my offer if the amount is increased.
  • Ah Tuck sensed that I was trying to bribe him, but later changed the topic.
  • Li Xiang a.k.a banana will vote for me without any hesitation.
  • Chuan Wen will vote if I bribe him with RM250.
  • Jaecy was feeling unwell and didn't want to reply.
  • Ivan asked to vote for him instead.
  • Szehuey got blurred as well.
  • Kevin appeared to be voting for me, until my laptop gave me some problems.

In conclusion, of the 16 respondents:

  • Respondent(s) who will vote for me without bribery: 1
  • Respondent(s) who are against bribery: 1
  • Respondent(s) who are willing to condone bribery: 4
  • Respondent(s) who gave didn't bother to bargain and gave unrelated replies: 8
  • Respondent(s) who emo-ed: 1
  • Respondent(s) who replied me through other medium (Skype): 1

Apparently, money politics still work to some extend if you are running in an election.

P/S: To those who missed out on this, please do not feel small gas/heart, okay? You were e ither offline/away when I was looking at my MSN list. You may not appear here, but certainly not forgotten. I still love every single of you.

kh said...

it doesnt work this way... you have to ask till the end...

i still wont vote for you even if you've given me that 200K...lol

and condolences to you for being so bored in freezing nagaoka while i can survive in 2 layers from tomorrow onwards...

calvin said...

@ michelleg:
i should have signed off in skype for a moment when i was testing you. don't merajuk, okay? i still sayang you =D

calvin said...

@ kok hong:
my final price is rm200, no bargain here. and i don't think a huge amount like 200k is considered a charity anymore. i am not a son of any datuk or tan sri.

just do me a simple favour. send me a stalk of white rose and it will make my day much better :)

pinkpau said...

*giggle

Kevin Tan said...

why i last one?? *merajuk*

cl3m` said...

i hafta agree with kh, i still might not accept it even if u increased the amount.

Eric Sng said...

ohh...funny....good one

calvin said...

@ pinkpau:
i was only copycat-ing your idea =D

calvin said...

@ kevin tan:
awww, don't merajuk sayang.
you should be the third one after kok hong, but i only found our conversation history when i was almost done with my post and lazy to change the numbering. hence i put you at the end >.<

calvin said...

@ cl3m:
are you making a change on your stand now? now that we have a cleaner and more transparent government (i hope), i think most people will think twice before they offer/take bribes.

calvin said...

@ Eric Sng:
thanks =)

cl3m` said...

calvin, my stance hasn't changed at all. i never said that i would receive a bribe at a higher offer, u just assumed i would.

A: Are you an alcoholic?
B: I drink everyday.
A: You're an alcoholic.

It's wrong to assume that B is an alcoholic because

1. B drinks a cup of wine everyday
2. Out of jest, B drinks water everyday.

all i'm saying that u wont get proper answers from a 5 second interview. u needa ask till the very end.

it's almost like taking someone's quote of context. read rocky bru's blog on how he said muhkriz mahathir was misquoted badly in the media.

calvin said...

@ cl3m:
YES! CORRECT! CORRECT! CORRECT!
*in vk lingam's way*

the set of questions i asked didn't mean anything serious, but they merely demonstrate the different characteristics of malaysians. some were reacting as if they are bargaining for prices of vege at the morning market. honestly, it wasn't in my mind to judge anyone through that interview.

however, i have to mention here that you have made a very good point there, which i couldn't disagree more.

Stan said...

wei~~~~!!

You posted my reply ...din tell me what was going on !!! ( ̄□ ̄;)

Some more you know right...i din study in Msia...bahasa melayu mana boleh jalan...

Ok, so from this post , i assume the question was:

Vote for me?

Interesting way to get ideas for a blog post hahha...hat's off to you - and Pinkpau too! :D

pinksterz said...

WOI THE ICON! MY >> ICON ISSIT?!

wtf hate you for menyalahgunakan icon itu! hmph.

pinksterz said...

and #12 is the best!!!!1111 LOLOLOLOL!

calvin said...

@ stan:
you never told me that your reply is copyrighted. anyway, who said you bahasa couldn't walk already. at least you still get my question correctly.

yeah, i credit goes to pinkpau for this post ^.^

calvin said...

@ pinksterz:
yea, it was that icon. i didn't know how to put that into this entry or else it would have been much better and my message would have been conveyed more effectively.

you wasn't online that time. otherwise, i'm sure you would have been my victim too.

pinksterz said...

haha i dont think so considering most of the times it was me who annoyed you xD

calvin said...

@ pinksterz:
now only you realised that you are that annoying?
but you still got yourself confused when i changed my msn nick the other day, right? >.<
