Got Blogging Deprivation Syndrome Yet?

28 December 2006 10:46

Internet Withdrawal Syndrome is in full effect today due to theoutages at our ISPs' international links caused by the recent earthquake in Taiwan. Some are even upset over the loss of their AdSense income for the day. Wished you had a proper hobby now, don't you?

A Chinese Wedding Experience

24 December 2006 18:00

Today, I came one step closer to being aType 2 Chinese when I became part of my colleague's "hing tai" (brothers) at his wedding. I also got a firsthand experience of Fear Factor - Chinese Wedding style, thanks to the antics of the bride's "chi mui" (sisters) when we were trying to get through to the bride. My tastebuds got all funny after consuming a freakingly hot bun laced with wasabi-like sambal and washing it down with a glass of bitter herbal drink typically found at those sinseh shops. Needless to say, for a couple of hours today, I developed a newfound appreciation for the programs on Astro Wah Lai Toi. That all got neutralized however, when our table was graciously served with briyani during the reception dinner instead of the standard issue 8 course meal for fear that the 5 of us Malays may accidentally ingest non-halal food. If anything else, this whole experience has has made me ready for that long term relationship with a member of the opposite sex that is not from the same bloodline. Kinda handy too with the new year looming already.

Now, if only I'd take care about the lighting in my house that is currently 100% generated by fluorescent lights (I exceed certain specifications of a Type 2 Chinese even). Perhaps that may be the affliction that's preventing me from scoring a breakthrough. Let me confirm that withLilian Too.

Achy-Ah!

It confounds me to find people shopping at Ikea like they shop for groceries at the supermarket. And it's not them buying couches, desks, shelves or any other big items (i.e. stuff that requires you to use the furniture trolley or a forklift for that matter) either. Seriously, folks. If you want to shop for items such as chopping boards, clothes hangers, AA batteries, etc. you'd really be better off at either Carrefour, Giant or Tesco. Not only they're cheaper, you can pronounce their names properly too. There are some of us who would really like to get in and out of Ikea without having to do a stakeout at the carpark stalking people going back to their cars and then having to wait for your credit card to clear for that RM31.80 purchase that you're making, y'know.

Adunan Lagu Rumah Melayu

11 December 2006 16:45

Contrary to what most cynics and so-called critics of local music think, there are some Malay songs that won't sound too out of place in a club. If you can spare some 20 minutes of your life (not refundable), you can just listen to what I mean. That is after you spend a few additional minutes downloading my Malay House Music Mix featuring Nikki (Pinta), Camelia (Seiring Sejalan), Tiara Jacquelina (Asmaradana and Katakan Hadirmu Kerana Cinta) and Ning Baizura (Bebaskan). If it does sound out of place, pardon me then 'cos I've never really been to a club and probably mistook it for the ear numbing sounds of feng tau techno or some supermarket in Cheras.

I have been told that you cannot make someone love you. All you can do instead is stalk them and hope that they panic and give in. And when they do, you can probably get by on charm for about fifteen minutes. After that, you'd better have a big weenie or huge boobs (having both at the same time is not a good idea).

With that insight, you should now find renewed use for those spam emails you get that you often discard.

Moving Right Along

5 December 2006 14:47

So I had a couple of days' respite. I spent the time letting the world pass me by while I found solace and solitude soaking myself in a couple of books whilst listening to some CDs. Watched a couple of DVDs, went running and actually tried sleeping too. I'm beginning to grasp the concept of sleeping at night again. I then began contemplating. And everytime I do that I get nauseous, constipated and introspective. Enterthe epiphany machine. Monday came. It then occured to me: I'm still not over it yet.

I should do the above more often, i.e. take some time off to smell them daisies before I start pushing them up. Life is usually half spent by the time we figure out what it is.

Can I Have Me Back Now?

1 December 2006 14:33

Everybody's been having a piece of me but me lately. So at the risk of sounding anti-social, I am going to turn myself into a hermit for the next few days. Which means that I'll be staying off any face-to-face meetings, phone calls, email, SMSes, IM, etc. No exceptions. Yours truly is not in the building. You may not leave a message after the beep.
