Epic

13 05 2009

Okay. Learned my lesson. Never am I gonna click on things I shouldn’t click. Its like opening a Kinder Bueno egg… that’s already sour and rotten.

Since its been 7 days, I guess this entry’s gonna be… epic? long? Well, I’ll just write down what I wanna write down. Please forgive me if it looks like a chapter from Twilight. lols.

4th of May:

Attended a live concert of sorts by local band En-X! I only heard their songs from Wei Zhong, and they’re pretty good. But in my opinion, they sound a lot lot better playing the way they did at Concourse in Esplanade. I brought my D70s along with me, just to take photos, and they sounded so good, my butt was literally glued to my seat, and I only took from that angle. BAD photography. But who cares, the music was good! Photos coming up.

The whole entire band for that day for the Concourse performance. The lead 3 are the main members of the band, whereas the last 2 guys at the back, on the drums and the guitar, and special guests for the performance!

Upon reaching home, I told myself that I should have used a higher shutter speed. lols. Excuse me. photo-talk.

Anyways, you can check out En-X on their Myspace and Facebook profiles. Links as given! Listen to the songs Never Be The Same and Everything Will Be Alright. My favourite songs!

Other than that, I’ve been spending my days at home. Running. Watching anime online. More running. AND, according to my mum, my appetite has increased 3 fold. OOOH.. I’m gonna look like a Boomer soon.

Oh yeah speaking of Boomer, I’ve been going for plenty of L4D as well! Oreo is now addicted to Survival mode. Frankly, it IS fun, but if the objective is to just SURVIVE a never ending onslaught of rotten zombies, what’s the point? I kinda find it.. dull after a while. At least in Campaign mode, you have an objective to finish. Survival mode? I still don’t see it, but its still exhilirating to shoot down wave and wave and wave and wave and wave and wave and wave and wave and wave of zombies, followed by a random number of Tanks, Smokers and Boomers. Comedy central I tell you.

Last weekend, the team went back to that cursed place to catch soft toys again. lols. I spent $14 bucks, without catching anything. WTF. The Marksman game increased to $2. I got so demoralized, I missed all my attempts. DAMN IT. Disappointing.

And before you guys judge me and assume I’m getting my money from my mum, I’m not! I’m starting work tonight, at a tuition centre in Jurong West. Tutoring English, obviously my BEST ever subject. Let me teach the kids anything else, and it’ll probably turn out disastrous. lols.

Oh well. Wish me luck!

Mood = 0

6 05 2009

This is spastic.

Here I was, ready to blog about all the things I wanted to let out, when I saw something I shouldn’t have even LAID my eyes on.

Mood is GONE.

FUCK. I’m a useless piece of THRASH. CAN’T EVEN PURGE MYSELF PROPERLY.

I HATE me.

PLUSHIES. Except for 1.

PLUSHIES. Except for 1.

That picture on top pretty much sums up my weekend. lols. The whole Team had plushie catching machine fever. and I think its all my fault.

Marina Square has this really cool shop that is full of that money-sucking-scam-filled claw machines that promises you a soft toy if you manage to grip the toy properly. The Team walked past it, and Shiro and Kousagi were enamoured by that big Stitch in the photo. So after the guy was done, I realized I had several one dollar coins in my pocket, and itchy-itchy-itchy put it inside to try my luck. And as always, I missed. But it was this <——> close. So I tried again. Eventually, I managed to do it, with Oreo’s help, and I gave it to Kousagi. By this time, EVERYONE was playing.

So my returns yesterday were;

  1. The big Stitch (Gave Kousagi)
  2. 2 turtles (Gave Kousagi)
  3. 1 Pooh Bear (Gave Oreo)
  4. 1 Pooh Bear in a cow suit (Got passed around, and landed up with Mayi. lols)

Yeah. I didn’t bring any back. The best was Ben though. There was this particular machine called Marksman, which isn’t the typical claw machine. But you had to control a pushing pointer on 2 vectors, up and right, and then manouver it to push down a metal plate bearing a number, through a random shape done in acrylic plastic. Confusing? You gotta see the machine to understand the mechanics of it. lols. Ben spent 3 bucks doing nothing but understanding the game. DAMN funny. OK la, among all of us, he spent the most, so he got the most plushies.

Really reminds me of the days in Cine and PS where we ended up with;

The big one behind was part of Catch 3, Get him free option. We left it at Hougang.

This was on the first day Cineleisure arcade brought in the claw machine. Darren went nuts.

STITCH! Hot favourite.

STITCH! Hot favourite.

This is all the result of watching Darren plot, plan and manouver his way around to catch one.. only for him to miss, cuss, followed by a few dramatic turns and facial expressions and den followed by changing more money to play. He usually gets it at the next attempt though. I had the same reactions yesterday, but spent a bit more money than him. lols. Grass will taste damn good next week.

Picture of the day:

Eriol, with Shiro's Dollfie.. whose name slipped my mind.

Check out the doll on Eriol’s arm. I found out yesterday its actually a HOBBY. so I looked it up.

Dollfie (I believe that version of Dollfie is in that page)

Think Barbie, except with much more cooler clothes, funky hairstyles, blue tack and no gay-looking Ken doll. Kousagi and Shiro have one. And I see the way they invest in the dolls.. I got one complain though. I can’t differenciate between guys and girls. That doll up there, its a guy.

CANNOT SEE RIGHT?

And the other thing that freaked me out, was how easily detachable the dolls were. This was demonstrated to me over dinner one night, when Kousagi and Shiro was discussing their dolls, when suddenly Shiro simply detached her doll’s head into two equal pieces. It was like breaking an egg, albeit SMOOTHLY. I had maggi goreng sitting inside my mouth being chewed, and I was quite close to having it being maggi goreng on Mayi’s face instead. Imagine Saw. That freaky. Or maybe I’m just a big ayam.

Marina Square anyone? lols.
