Reality.

13 08 2009

There. The post did what it was supposed to do. Truthfully speaking, I didn’t like the situation any more than you do. How was I supposed to tell you how we felt, without you incurring some other form of emotional injury? What you wrote in the team thread, was basically what I thought was appropriate, albeit weeks before. You can tell it has a profound effect on the team, because after Oreo’s and Lorenzo’s reply, we basically fell silent. It was that kind of uncomfortable scenario you know? Let you know and we’ll be damned. Don’t let you, and we’ll also be damned. Yes, I do see you as my younger sister, as I see the rest of the female team members. I didn’t know any other way to put it. You can think that you want to stay away from the team, or minimise interactions with us. I don’t really know about that, but I do know is, I smiled and had fun with you weeks after the incident happened. I don’t keep bad feelings inside of me. I seriously hope, you took away something from the incident, as I have done myself.

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.

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!





Lollipop.

22 04 2009

I think I’m going nuts.

No, its not because I played Left 4 Dead again today (I seriously need to kick the game out of my system).

I’m hooked to this song;

In my head today, I was lolli lolli lollipopping all the way from Bugis to Yew Tee. And yeah I went to Bugis today. Got some new stuff. Watch. Jeans. Top.

After my semi-splurging today, it just undermines the fact that I NEED TO FIND A JOB! albeit temporarily.

This section goes out to a dear friend of mine, since I’m still fucking pissed off with you and your attitude.
You fucking know who you are. You keep asking plenty of things about friends and NS. I told you what I know, what I experienced. Out of sight, out of mind. Yeah I’ve been through it. EVERY male Singaporean citizen has. You’re not the only dick in Singapore who’s been through it. So even IF you are feeling bitter about it, don’t fucking give me that fucked up attitude of yours just because I asked you a DAMN SIMPLE QUESTION. So fucking what if I want to try on the cap? Why, I can’t bite G-Dragon? AND. what the fuck makes you think I was gonna bite him anyway? Just because I asked you? I look at your fashion sense, and I’m sure you got your inspiration off someone. That’s biting too fucking damn it. And who gave you the right to tell me not to bite anyway? What are you, the fashion police? WOOO.. come arrest me I’m biting off another dude for his style. What’s my sentence? 15 years in a beige old pants and singlet?

You keep asking me whether you changed. I said you didn’t, because I felt that you hadn’t changed! But after that demonstration of your fucked up attitude last night, OH BOY. You gave me a reason to verbally fuck you. I have every right to try on something that catches my eye. YOU KNOW IT YOURSELF TOO. When do I ever bite off the stuff I see? even if I did, its because I want to see whether it suits me or not.

Oh, and for your fucking info, I DID try on the cap today. It didn’t suit me. There. Case closed. Not so hard isn’t it? If you actually kept your opinion to yourself, or at least phrased your words nicely, I wouldn’t get so damn fucking offended. Work on your words man. Don’t convince me that all in your vocabulary are nothing but vulgarities A – Z.

Use your head dammit.





Words.

13 04 2009

I have one inspiration everytime I look at something I like, or listen to something soothing.

Words.

You put the right words in, let it blend smoothly, and it becomes a greater work of art or literature (or so it seems).

When I was younger, I used to take the melody from songs, and match them with another set of lyrics altogether. My favourite? I loved to take Korean songs, in which the words obviously doesn’t make sense to me, and rewrite them into something else. Joanna & Ting can testify to that.

*By the way Jo, I spent 3 hours combing my house to find the lyrics. I think its gone. SORRY!

I found a bunch of my old songs from my old laptop stashed inside my mum’s disk drive. GLEEFULLY I transferred them to my iTunes, listening to each song, reminiscing how these songs inspired me with their lyrics.

And then there’s the other type, that takes songs already on mainstream, record it with their own spin to it. This is the time I first listened to the beautiful vocals of Olivia Ong.

Olivia Ong

Olivia Ong

I was blown away. Here’s list of the covers she did:

  • Sometimes When We Touch
  • All of Out Love
  • True Colours
  • Close To You
  • Fields of Gold
  • Make It With You
  • Fly Me to The Moon (My personal favourite!)
  • Lovefool
  • Kiss Me

Her whole albums are so nice and soothing! I can just turn spin this on a sunny weekend morning and do my work peacefully. Her voice reminds me a bit of Joanna’s. Go over to imeem.com to listen to some of her songs, and then go buy her CD. Worth it!

Did my first cosplay shoot last Friday. No no, I wasn’t the cosplayer. Bryan invited me to help out in a shoot he was doing for his friends. So down I went to town to meet up with him and his gang of friends from SGcafe. The 2 cosplayers, hyperactive young ladies by the names of Shiro and Kuro, were doing Ouran High School Host Club characters Hikaru and Kaoru Hitachiin. Some choice photos below;

I know my skills aren’t “there” yet. Working towards it. Never back down! =)

Went out with Ting today. I became quite the glutton. This is what is currently churning in my tummy right now:

  • Salmon & Unagi Combo from Yoshinoya.
  • Auntie Anne’s Cinnamon Sugar Pretzel.
  • Raspberry Ripple Ice Cream
  • Rochor Bean Curd and You tiao.

All of that in a space of 4 hours. and you know what?

I’m still hungry.

But judging by what I ate today, I’d have to run later on in the morning. Time to get rid of that disturbing ring of fat around my tummy!

Lemme show you guys a new superhero in Singapore!

Kamen Rider.... Hentai. As announced by Shiro & Kuro.

Yeah. Our dear friend Bryan put on his paintball mask, and started walking down Orchard Road, imitating Hard Gay.

Next time, I’ll bring a VIDEO CAMERA.
