    Dear Mr Brown (very clever to mix Hokkien and English- try not to use too many songs as easy way out. Like Liam-Keng 念经), Sam (very good at mimicking Malay slang - I think you eat lots of Malay food. Hence the lodeh flavoured English), Ivan (very good at mimicking Indian slang. I think you watch to many Tamil movies. Probably dancing all day long. Please take care and don’t fall down) and crew at Mr Brown Show (all supportive only)

    1. On the face of it, I am thrilled that half of my stage name had been incorporated into you latest Podcast. I would like to think that you like probably half my inputs. So, a half pok-kai contributes to a full pok-kai tale and hence the Pok-kai song. Half ghosting I guess is good (because that’s as far as my capability goes)

    2. PR’s buy this and buy that. So PR kena langa. If citizen is poor, don’t grunt. Gahmen gives you grant. So PR = Please Run. Run fast or run away.

    3. Lately one Doctor kena sue by Nurse. He cannot stand up. But apparently he boasts he can do it. So, legs cannot stand does not mean C _ _ K cannot stand. The moral of the story - Rise only when you need to. This makes a good story line, I think.

    4. So, let’s see what Mr Brown and your brownies will come up with…May be rise in tandem? :)

  6. Pokkai Man Says:

    Dear All

    1. Good morning.

    2. Since my posting, I discovered more and more that there are a host of followers and copycats. Your podcast is turning people from followers to borrowers. It’s the off-shoot of Mr Brown party.

    3. Someone now calls Pokai Man has posted after me. He is one k short. So it’s a shorted Pokkai.

    4. Someone says “Mr Brown you are like chanting.” I am thrilled to find a supportive concordance. Try this: Honey honey honey, I like money, it’s a rich man’s world. Ah ah ah ah (plenty of repetitions, easy on the brain). Or follow- “Do rei me, do rei me do do…”

    5. I took a further look at your shows. The ratio of songs to skits is inching higher and higher. This is not a good trend. Soon there will be only sing-a-longs. Like camp fire browned.

    6. That’s all for the day (some one surely will copy somewhere - call it borrowing…:) )

    No Money, No Worries.

    No Money, No Cry.

    Let’s all be Pokkai-Face. No Choise, What.

  8. pock mark lee Says:

    Mr Brown,
    Mark Lee will gladly exchange his pock marked face for a pok-kai face. I hope for Mark Lee’s sake, he never becomes pok-kai.
    It will be a double whammy and you can’t beat this.

  9. Alvin Says:

    Fuck lah, a HDB peigon hole is a flat NOT a house lah.

  10. Dr Chan Says:

    I only laughed when I heard that part about uncle touching ass. Everything else has already been touched on before. No pun intended. Some newer, fresher themes please.

  11. tux Says:

    any video for this …

  12. sooth Says:

    good one sir!

  13. like it Says:

    haha… like this lady gabra’s pok-kai face… way better than lady gaga’s poker face

  14. Pet Says:

    Currently is only 4 million population ……

    I can t imagine …. what will happen , when we hit 7 million …..

  15. Tony Khoo Says:

    wow, you are famous !

    on front page of TR

  16. adeline Says:

    Eat poh chay?? I thot this is illegal..said AVA…a few years back??
    Not illegal….still got poh chay pills?

    AT 4MILLION PEOPLE on this multiple-holes-cheeze of an island, how do you expect not to touch somebody’s ass or somebody’s br—st, or somebody’s…. when every one is packed like sardines in the MRT???!!! Don’t want to touch will also end up touching like it or not!

    Hit 7million? Then migrate lah before it hit 5milion or 6million!
    Oppss! only the rich can migrate….so that leaves only the POI KAI & all the pok-ker players on this cheeze of an island.

  17. lim Says:

    You win already lor! :)

  18. sgstudentshow Says:

    nice one.pang sai face

  19. Gal Says:

    Awesome work guys… loved it.

    Pokkai Man, wish you could just mind your own bussiness and stop commenting on others’ comments. Bet you can’t do a better podcast than these guys.

  20. Pokkai Man Says:

    Dear Mr Brown, Ivan, Sam, Mark and the Mr Brown crew

    I want to lodge a complain against some sort of complainant with whom I have nothing to do. Your podcast is superb and it attracts all sorts of attention.

    If someone alludes to some comments, I bet it is sheer jealously. It should have its own podcast.

    This is only a very mild form of complaint against some busy body with nothing to do except to blabber.

    In everyday parlance, I would term it a stupid fool (only a very mild characterization).


    Yours sincerely

    Pokkai Man (plenty of shadow pokkais around -as if being Pokkia is fashionable). Pok them all if that is the fashion.

  21. AngMoGirl Says:

    You guys are so damn spoiled! In Eastern Europe ppl pay off house loans in two generations. And you have Taxis and MRT - why the hell whine about not having a car? Imagine living in a country with virtually no public transport and not being able to afford a car there.

    And yeah, I’m a foreigner who worked for half pay :P.

  22. Pokkai Man Says:

    Dear foreigner cc Mr Brown team

    1. No need to talk about Eastern Europe so very far apart. Just look at the Singapore Zoo. Animals have no cars. Only 4 legs. Just show off is enough. Some more they have full time servants to clean their poo, give free medical care, free food and free lodging. Join the Zoo. Be an animal. No mortgage required.

    2. No need to talk about what type of transport. Again look at the Singapore Zoo. Just walk on 4 legs. It will lighten the load on the original two. Imagine moving twice the distance on the same energy. Or, use half the energy and travel the full distance. Use your paws. Walk on fours.

    3. Public transport is only for the public. Do things privately. Take private transport.

    4. Think out of the box. Look at the Seow Lang Keng. Plenty of ideas.

    5. Lastly, Singapore is in Asia. Eastern Europe is to the east of Western Europe. They are worlds apart. Cannot imagine. May be over there, the crabs does not walk sideways. They walk upside down.

  33. Why HDB Flats So Expensive – Mr Brown Pok Kai (Poker) Face Parody | Wayang Times ~ Funny and Entertaining Asian News Says:

    […] There are many Lady Gaga and Poker Face funny parodies on the Internet nowadays, but this spoof must be the best one lol! Mr Brown recently did this great parody to express the anxiety felt by a growing number of Singaporeans, rising HDB flats (public housing) prices. He lamented in this song that the high prices are causing many people in Singapore to start showing “Pok Kai” (aka “No More Money” in Hokkien dialect) faces. […]
