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.


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.

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.

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!
