Best Singaporean Name Ever!



I spotted this on Vicki's Flickr. Check out the guy's name: Kiasu Ong! Now, if there's a contest for the most popular Singaporean name, I think this guy will win hands down.

Vicki told me that she spotted the ad on Business Times. It covers half a page and is full of faces of property agents. Yup, Kiasu Ong sells houses and according to this comment I found on a Tomorrow.sg post, it says he works for Dennis Wee Properties and he is one of their top agents. No wonder. With a name like that, how can he not be a top seller aye.

Update: Thanks to reader Chris Ong (no relations to Kiasu Ong, I think) who wrote to me saying that Kiasu Ong is no longer with Dennis Wee Properties. He is now a Division Head with Anchor Properties. Ah, there he is.
