Week.

29 04 2009

7 days from my last post. What have I been up to? Frankly speaking, you guys know I’m the type with super short term memory. so I’ll try to recall bits and pieces here and there.

Over the weekend spent time with the Team. Top One KTV~. HAHA so FUN! For majority of them, its the first time hearing me sing Mandarin songs, and for all of them, first time hearing me sing Spanish. LOLS! The place is damn cool as well. They even had this smoke machine that was meant to recreate a concert stage like setting.. so like the curious cat I am, I pressed the “Mist” (or was it Smoke) button, and out it came. The thing is, I didn’t know whether it has a set timer upon which it stops spewing out smoke, or I had to press that button again to stop it from coming out. So I SPAM the button, ala pushing-off-zombies-from-my-face-with-right-click style. I think the smoke machine has a timer. So I practically filled the whole room with smoke, that Mayii was complaining of breathlesness and got out. lols. We had dinner at the prata shop near NAFA, where we gave nicknames to 2 of our most charismatic people. Lorenzo is now known as Black Hole, while Jon is now know as Roti. Roti Jon.

roti-john

Jon’s nick is straightforward. But why Black hole for Lorenzo? Lemme tell you why.

The prata kosong at the shop is a bit special, because they sell it in a set, 2 pieces per set. So while everyone was discussing what they wanted, Kuro wanted 1 set and Mayii wanted 1 set. So after I gave the guy all the orders, save the prata, Lorenzo came into the picture and told the fella 3 sets of prata kosong. Makes sense right? 1 for Kuro, 1 for Mayii and one for Lorenzo himself. So when the fella came back with the prata, it was all 6 pieces on one plate. Lorenzo took the plate and went:

“1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6.. All mine!”

I just went WTF Witch style. I looked at his skinny frame and the amount of prata he was eating, it didn’t match. lols. So I ordered the other 2 sets for the 2 poor waiting people, and when it came, Lorenzo was well into his 3rd kosong piece. This was just the beginning.

Rochelle ordered watermelon juice, and she commented it tastes like chilli. I took a sip, and wow. it DID taste like chilli. But I think its just simply the watermelon having sugar added, therefore giving a sweet taste. I don’t want to go into the mechanics here, but certain chemical reactions with sugar causes slight twinges to the taste of the product. She didn’t want it anymore, and since we were all done, she and Shiro decided to remix the drink. With curry, sugar, prata pieces, teh cino ice.. you get the picture. It was concoction worth attracting The Horde.

Zouk was having free drinks night.

Once that drink was all prepared to be served, out came Lorenzo. He took it, he tasted it, took more tentative sips, and said “hmm.. not bad”.

I saw him the next day, and I’m still talking to him on MSN now, so I can verify for you guys he is not dead.

So now you all understand. Black Hole. lols.

Sunday, the Team went to PS for lunch at PS to discuss some aspects of the Cosplay event. I’m being asked to choreo a dance. -_-”

Not exactly confident about it, but I will do my best!

Anyway, we ended up having a normal lunch instead, and the real discussions started at Hemisphere cafe. I got a clear idea of what to do now. helped a lot! Kuro and Jon went home after that, whilst the rest of us went to Kino, and after that Rochor to have some nice soybean-related products after meeting Bryan. Hungry Sunday lols.

The days passed by uneventfully after that, until yesterday evening. Met up with Huat and Bryan for some L4D action. It was here that I became a prolific Witch disturber. and I also found out that 1 propane tank is not enough to bring a damn Witch, even though she looks like she’s been blown off balance. She keng only. She almost bloody killed me after that. Basket.

Check out these 2 webbies below.

Pawsworkz
This webbie belongs to one of my friends, Edmund, who has opened his own online pet shop, catering to food and pet care services. He does delivery, so if you find that you don’t have sufficient time to take care of your best friend for that particular week, Edmund can help! He carries a wide variety of canine food and health supplements as well!

The Better Toys Store Blog
I just discovered that my old working spot had a blog. The webbie is still under construction though. However, if you just take a look through the blog, you can see all the cool toys and products that they carry, and also pictures of the events they held! Promotions info are also posted up here. Check out the website if you’re looking for a unique gift person for your loved one!

A bit of advice for you guys as well. Have you read of the Swine Flu Outbreak from Mexico? Read about it here:
2009 Swine Flu Outbreak

Basically, its a strain of flu, originating from pigs, that have adapted to become endemic in both humans and birds. To put it simply, it evolved. Reassorting itself to make itself viable in a human or bird host. The closest case to Singapore is in Hong Kong and South Korea where there is 4 and 1 suspected cases respectively. Okay, so while it IS suspected, after the SARS scare a few years ago, please take the necessary precautions. Avoid all pork-related food to stay safe, and the moment you display flu symptoms, go see a doctor straightaway. It has already claimed 159 lives already in Mexico alone.

Please take care of yourselves everyone!

High on zombies today. No no, I did not consume them. But killing over 3,000 zombies in one sitting really feels good!

Met up with Calvin and Wei Zhong for a bit of Left 4 Dead action just now. AH. The best game ever. If you ever need to destress and you wanna feel good and warm all over, play L4D! Its the one game where shooting at humanoids zombies is mandatory, only to save your life. Good trade eh? I actually felt my eyes BURNING after finishing our 3-hour zombie-spraying binge. I got a feeling tonight I will dream of zombies. Left 4 Dead style!

A bit pissed off though. Out of 3 stages we played, I didn’t survive on ONE. And why? Because the damn TANK got to me before I could reach the safety of the rescue vehicle. Tank you say?

This is the one face that strikes terror into every noob L4D player’s hearts, especially when you hear the accompanying cheesy music and see the vibrations on screen of the approaching Tank. So what is so bad about this dude? Well..

  • He has PLENTY of hitpoints. Which means to say you probably need to empty 3 clips of machinegun ammo just to bring down the big guy.
  • He is strong. He hits you one time, your health goes down about 25 hitpoints. Not good, especially when you are being raped overwhelmed by zombies.
  • He treats you like a shuttlecock. SERIOUSLY. One of this guy’s attacks is to swat you away. Personal experience: I once tried to be gung-ho and chionged the fella with nothing but my 2 handguns. He swatted me off the building. Instant death. I’ve never seen Wei Zhong laugh so hard in my life.

He has another friend which I love to hate. The Boomer.

This big, fat, ugly fella has one irritating ability: Vomiting. The vomit actually attracts hordes of the other kuching kurap zombies, which then proceed to rape overwhelm you again. Luckily, because his belly is so full of gas, 5 bullets is enough to blow him up like a balloon. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Needless to say, I LOVE to play the campaign missions, because you’re up against the AI. Me and 3 other friends whom I can trust. Of course, I know Calvin won’t save me if I’m left behind next time, because that’s what I did to him just now. HAHA.

Okay. Now for a bit of indulgence.

I am totally head over heels in adoration for this celebrity:

Bae Seul Ki

Bae Seul Ki

PRETTY RIGHT~!?

It also helps that she’s a wonderful singer, and she can dance as well. She appeared on a couple of Korean variety shows, namely Xman and Love Letter. Her Bokgo (old school) korean dance is damn cool!

She recently released her new album, with the title track Tiresome, featuring Ha Joo Yeon of Jewelry fame. Here’s a video of her recent LIVE performance on KBS’s Music Bank on 3rd April 2009.

Now you can see how pretty she really is! HEHE.  Here’s more eye candy photos for my your viewing pleasure.

If I don’t dream of zombies tonight, I’ll dream of her. No combination of both please. HAHA.

Just a random shoutout: OETLEUMAS, what the hell are you still waiting for~!? Just ask GNITIUHMIS be your girl liao la!
