World’s 2nd Tallest Man visits the Mall of Asia

February 6, 2009 at 6:08 pm 17 comments

Back off, Yao Ming! Here comes Naseer Somro, world’s second tallest man!

I was having a business meeting with friends at the Mall of Asia when another friend working from that mall tipped us that the second tallest man in the world is currently at the Mall of Asia for a photo-op. After the meeting, he accompanied us to the bay area to check the giant out. From afar, you won’t have a hard time recognizing the man, of course. It’s just so easy to track him down even if you’re at the 3rd largest mall in the world.

There he was, seated on a chair with so many people lined up wanting to have a photo taken with him. I was telling my friends that having a height like that isn’t a good thing. It’s just so odd and different. In fact, he’s here in the country because he’s sick. He is currently soliciting money because apparently, he has a problem with his bones (with that height, no doubt he would because that’s a common problem with tall men like him).

Anyways, here’s a picture of me with Naseer Somro, the 2nd tallest man in he world, at the SM Mall of Asia.

    Hi Normz. He’s from Pakistan. He has bone problems. Look at his other foot. Too bad, the world’s tallest man is in Europe. A Ukranian named Leonid Stadnyk. 😀

      Hi Ahrgene! Thanks for the visit and the comment. I didn’t know that he would even go to office buildings (Ortigas or Makati?). I hope that he got enough funds for his hospitalization. Thanks for sharing the news article. 🙂
