Uncle Gedek: A Selfie Master Class Since 2009

NOW then, who says selfies are exclusive for young, cute and attractive females only? Meet Marzuki Mahbob, who not only has been taking selfies on a daily basis since March 2009, but he does it much better and with more panache than most other people.

Better known as “Uncle Gedek”, this 46 year old started a blog named “Blog Begins At Forty” to celebrate him reaching the big four-zero mark. Here he uploads a selfie with himself every single day, but what makes them so special is that he has the same serious poker-face expression in every single photo. No duck faces, no peace signs, no finger in check. The exact same stone-faced expression.

He also constantly wears a black t-shirt. The background scenarios in the photos do however perpetually change and they are often humorous. The captions and comments he leaves are also sure to put a smile on your face.
 
A graduate in Commercial Art, Uncle Gedek is a former cartoonist. As of today, he has made 2,122 daily blog posts. That’s 2,122 selfies with the exact same facial expression and shirt on folks. And yeah, they are still as entertaining as they were on day one!
