singapore = food + music

Nope, not promoting Singapore in general. But leave me in the hands of my Singaporean relatives and I’m immersed in a blown-out food fiesta! I swear each time I’m there I feel like I’ve gained kilos but tis mere illusion blown away as soon as I reach home.

Thanks so much to ichaya for taking care of me during my stay. ^_^ Even managed to catch up with most of the Twit Gang on Monday night when they came over for chicken rice. XD Darryl is just hilarious! Too bad Lizzie no want to come out. <pout>

Also managed to catch the R-21 version Lust, Caution. Porn scenes aside, the movie was actually pretty good. ^_^ Still, wish I could get that image of Tony Leung’s <bleeps> out of my mind. Argh!

Later went to the Asian Heritage Museum to take a look at the Nalanda trail exhibition. It does bring back distant memories of Asian culture studies back from the day. I went to a similar exhibit once in LA to do a paper on Asian artifacts; sure feels nostalgic.

The Linkin Park concert itself was a blast!! We started an hour late cuz they were taking their time letting people in but once it started all gripes disappeared in the energy of the performance. They played a good mix of their old and new songs, so us loyal oldies had a really good time singing along to Hybrid Theory and Meteora. Feels like age is catching up to me though: my arms were aching from the constant waving (handbanging? XD)  and I couldn’t last standing through the whole thing (stopped to sit awhile during a light song). But yeah, well worth the trip! ^_^

On a side note, my niece and nephew have grown. Afiq is hefty for a 6-year old, and his antics are amusing as always. Najiha is just adorable as always, but still shy shy since I haven’t seen her for so long. A strong-minded one that one. ^_^;;

tagged yet again~

Tagged by kittenz.

Rules :
1. Each blogger must post these rules

2. Each blogger starts with eight random facts/habits about themselves

3. Bloggers that are tagged need to write on their own blog about their eight things and post these rules. At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.

4. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’ve been tagged and to read your blog.

  1. I lurve playing WoW. But I <3 Fai-chan much more. Hence Fai-chan time > WoW.
  2. I have low blood pressure. But on the other hand people say I have a high metabolic rate, hence my slim frame. Don’t really know how it works, but yeah.
  3. I just bought cologne for myself for the very first time. Thanks, ichaya, for the recommendation. ^_^
  4. I can’t help but Facebook all day at work. Will someone please block it already! (So that I can hit colleague’s on Fighter’s Club before they realize what’s going on).
  5. I like to eat.
  6. I will start saving money next year! For <bleep bleep>.
  7. I always dream of becoming rich and famous, and have all these ideas to make it happen. But I’m too lazy to execute. 😛
  8. I’m bad at management. Really forcing myself to get better at it, but tis a hard journey.


Monday night: Kill Kael’thas Sunstrider. We’ve made certain progress on him, being able to survive all of Phase 3 and somewhat into Phase 4. Pyroblast timers haven’t been to accurate, so Julz couldn’t time his shield buff properly and kept getting one-shotted. Hopefully we’ll get him this time.

Tuesday night: My old old neighbor back in D’sara Heights will be back from London for a week. Gonna grab him for some good ol’ M’sian food. I’m thinking banana leaf.

Wednesday night: With all raid instances resetting the night before, we’ll probably start Tempest Keep again to down A’lar, Void Reaver, and Solarian. OR, if we manage to kill Kael’thas on Monday, we’d probably try our hand at Mount Hyjal. Woohoo, new content finally~!

Thursday morning/afternoon: Hang out. RE4? Karaoke? :O

Thursday night: Bring mom to a Deepavali open house. Indian food! *drool* I really miss good Indian curry.. Getting hungry just thinking about it. Hopefully tis not one of those standard buffet type layouts with a good selection but nothing particularly spectacular.

Friday night: Pack for Singapore… Gonna miss you more… -_- Spent most of the weekend with Fai-chan and her family. Never seems enough though. ^_^

holy fucktard, batman!

I just realised my driver’s license expired in August. >_<  I knew there was something I overlooked at the time. Wish they’d have some sort of reminder system.


by Ash.

1. Were you smiling when you woke up this morning?
Starts with a no, cuz it was so early in the morning and I was +_+. Then an eventual conversion to a yes, thinking about the time spent the night before.

2. When was the last time you met someone new?
Met Fai-chan’s PEP mates in the past week.

3. When did you last eat pizza?
Had Dominos thin-crust Extravaganzza (god, I miss the meatzza) within the past week as well. :O

4. Do you drink beer?
Nope. For various reasons.

5. Do you wash your own clothes?
Nope. Bro is head of the laundry department. 😛

6. What do you want more than anything?
You can’t really have something more than anything, cuz whatever you want would be part of that anything. Simple answer: Fai-chan. XD

7. Are you tired?
Yes. The lack of sleep doesn’t really bother me, but couple it together with stressing over the lack of time I have, and some unfulfilled craving for attention makes it a lil bleh. So much so that I feel like I have butterflies in my tummy.

8. Are you restless?
Yes. No. Maybe. I dunno. On one hand I wanna zoom off to Bangi, on the other hand I just wanna bury myself under my duvet.

9. How many Friendster’s view do you have today?
Pfft, who uses Friendster nowadays? 😛

10. Who is in the room with you?
I’m alone. I think.
