The Confessions of a Singaporean Gangster in London – The Brotherhood Press 2002. 88930/2002

Posted by inspir3d on February 12, 2005

Synopsis:

“The Confessions of a Singaporean Gangster” better known as “The 4 Bit Stories” was written by Darkness when he suddenly found himself unemployed in 2002.

At its height the series enjoyed a circulation of over 30,000 subscribers in Hong Kong, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, France and Thailand.

This 40 part mini series revolves around the trials and tribulations of a 23 year old, Yu Huan Guan, who once worked as a waiter in China town, London to finance his studies in Imperial College London.

Soon his employers took an interest in him. Unlike other boys who often loitered around aimlessly and only gossiped about prostitutes. The boy was silent and came across as diligent and dependable.

The boy was gifted in Mathematics and soon this caught the attention of the elders of China town who saw great potential in grooming him and so he was taken in to the house hold of “the old man” – the triad boss.

Where he worked as a driver and body guard to the third wife whenever his services we needed. Recognizing his flair for Mathematics Huan Guan was also given the job of the money man, where he would often be known as

“the man with the briefcase who carried the money for the four houses.”

In this treacherous world of gangsters, gamblers, pimps and cut throats our Singaporean boy suddenly finds himself plunging into a dark world of intrigue and mystery – his nemesis is a thirty something femme fatale who looks abit like Maggie Cheung.

The story charts how he reconciles his desires with the prevailing danger that constantly encircles his fragile world threatening to destroy it in a moment – will he be able to run away with the third wife? – will our Hero find happiness? Or will a darker fate await them – hang on to your seats ladies and find out in the next installment of “The Confessions of a Singaporean Gangster” brought to you only by the Brotherhood Press (and IS).

    LOL The confessions! This certainly brings back sweet memories. I was around 29 when I first read it and now I am married with two kids! And I still find myself turning to it in the evenings. I have read it a hundred times and I still love it to bits. May I ask where darkness is these days? Does he know it is Valentines day? Will he be making a guess appearance here? There used to be this chap called the chronicler, can you pls pass this on. He will get the message thru.

    Many Thanks and lots of love to Bambie and the boys. happy valentines

    This is the very first time, I have seen it all in one place, neatly put together and professionally arranged. And its all in one place. Its like visiting some memorial or something. There is something solemn about it. I just want to sit here for a while and just look at it and not say anything for a while, if you dont mind. This was so much a part of my youth and at one time a very important part of my life as a young girl.

    Thank you whoever it is, for doing this for all of us. You dont know how important this was to all of us.

    The original confessions ran just over 80 chapters in 2002 / they used to charge 0.35 cents every episode. It used to run like clock work, 5 episodes every week. If you paid in advanced, you get a 50% discount and a free b’hood mug. There were more than 30,000 readers bc some subscribers loaned out their passwords.

    This just brings it all back, Bambie & his gang, my youth and the days when life was just meant to be lived. Thanks.

    Mr Y2k where is Mr Darkness? Has he left a forwarding address? How do we even contact him? Any idea where is he right now?

    Many thanks and keep up the great effort.
