Batman fan: Chou (standing) recently acquired a custom-made Batmobile from the United States.
TAIWANESE Mandopop star Jay Chou, who loves comic book heroes, tried to persuade a shop manager to sell him a replica of the Batmobile, Guang Ming Daily reported.
Chou, who was in Malaysia for a commercial shoot, had gone twice to a mall in Kuala Lumpur last weekend to persuade the shop manager to sell him the reproduced model of the car used by one of his favourite superheroes, Batman.
The manager had passed the message to the shop owner and it is learnt that Chou would get his wish to own a Batmobile.
The vehicle cannot be driven.
The daily reported that Chou had seen the replica when he was shopping at the mall last August and had wanted to buy it.
She was found two days later, about 2km from the village where she went missing, Kwong Wah Yit Poh reported.
The girl was with her father earlier, attending a village gathering in the afternoon on Jan 1.
He and other guests searched for her and lodged a police report when they could not locate the toddler.
On Jan 3, the police found the child near the jungle.
Other than her dirty appearance, a medical check-up showed she was unhurt.
