BC: The Birth of my daughter. She is now 19 and wants me to buy her a car.

IWTBH: What keeps you looking young?
BC: I go to Christine Chin spa on Orchard. I get facials there. You feel pretty beat up afterwards but you look good for 2 weeks.
IWTBH: What should every man know?
IWTBH: Last question. You can have 5o million dollars but for the rest of your life you have to dress in head-to-toe Ed Hardy. Yes or no?
BC: For 50 million I would most definitely wear Ed Hardy. I would take 1 million and invest in the company to produce a line for gents like myself, but in the meantime I would be a very rich fashion faux pas with a big smile.
IWTBH: Thats cheating, but good answer. Thanks Bo.
