[quote=sabelt]Ahh this thing casting thingy is just behind my office. No chance for me then. Me no speak no chinese..If they one it so-called alex, might as well just take him lar..[/quote]

i hear that some of the my-kart girls are asking you to try for the role. go for it. just don't let your head get so big, or else you will not be able to put on your helmet. lol..

[quote=mononoke hime]refering to the casting requirement : why a go kart driver has to be a man? NOT a woman? hmmmmmmmmm... :? [/quote]
Perhaps because women are generally the cause of the headache... :P [eeeeks, i think i'm gonna need pain killers next time mononoke hime and gang see me]...
Whoever goes for the casting, please try and get some samples for me OK!!

:D errrrr, mmmmmmm, aaaahhhhh.... guess I'm gonna cop it now and having seen AnakAbah and Lynda in action I'm definately getting worried... :idea: perhaps now is a good time to retire from karting and seek refuge on top of a mountain somewhere

[quote=saa73][quote=TheFazz]can try laa. with a bit of make up you can look mid 20s. lol.[/quote]...yaa..can look like Hugh Grant in "Music & Lyrics" hahah
[/quote]
