Two weeks ago a man was caught filming up a lady’s skirt in the Kinokuniya book store in Bugis Junction*.
Apparently the women noticed the guy using his mobile phone video to get footage of her panties and alerted her boyfriend. I probably would have alerted everyone and anyone who would listen.
A bookstore seems like a strange place to get your kicks but then I guess you never know where these pervs hang out. The man was alleged to be suffering from “emotional stress”. I wonder what sort of emotional stress makes you film up someone’s skirt? No sex? Self-destruction?
Whatever it is you've got to be an idiot to not realise that doing something like this in Singapore is a very bad move. Emotional stress? Try being locked up for one year for getting your freak on.
In fact he was fined $4000 – could have been a lot worse as could have got up to a year plus a $10,000 fine. Most guys know there are many better and less expensive ways to get your kicks with the opposite sex.
Actually it seems this guy is a bit of an amateur. Back in 2007 a man was charged with 15 counts of using his digital camera to film up the skirts of unsuspecting ladies in only 2 hours. Wow - man on a mission! How on earth did he manage to clock up 15 in such a short space of time?
Well, for those of you outside of
, the answer is simple. Ladies here like to wear their skirts VERY short. So it’s actually not much of a challenge. Singapore
Anyway somehow the maths doesn’t quite work. One guy gets $10,000 for 15 videos and another gets $4,000 for one. I guess cheap thrills don’t come all that cheap any more! Maybe it's just down to inflation.
