BM-X


Crazy 88 Fighters
Swiped from ёndo.
On Friday night, SK and I sent my mum off to church to catch the group tour to Bukit Mertajam for St. Anne's Feast Day celebrations. SK and I decided to skip the trip this year.

Tour leader: Aiyoh... both of you not coming this year ah? Never mind, never mind. Join us next year.... with your baby yeah!!

SWEATZ. I wonder if my mother heard that. Blek. After seeing her safely on the bus, we waved our goodbyes and proceeded to Aman Suria to yumcha with Bunny at our usual haunt, Lotus. Upon parking, we noticed some unusual activity. Around 10 Toyota Mark X's were parked at the roadside together with a few stray black models. Was half-expecting the tuxedo-ed gangsters to come out wielding katanas, but they just suddenly revved up their engines, turned on their headlights and left. Weird. If it was daytime, I would have guessed a wedding entourage, but at night... organized crime comes to mind! But most probably some automobile club la. Ngor lam toh jor lo.

Ordered our usual-- naan with Tandoori chicken and a Maggie goreng. Chatted with Bunny regarding JJ's impending move back to KL. Pointed out some technicalities and had a lengthy discussion. Happy for both of 'em. Hopefully the teething period will be short. Also 'badmouthed' my beloved KH. Hehe. But of course, there's nothing much to talk about on that topic. :P. Did our usual bitching and psycho-analytics. Bunny's point of view is always fresh and brutally honest. Hehe. Love that. Bid each other farewell at midnight and quickly went to bed... morning market the next day though mum's out of town!

Azuki

Gastric. I think I have it. At least a mild form of it. When it attacks, I get a 'lil bloated and my tummy rumbles after every meal. Would need to rush to the loo not long after. Somehow I don't that it's due to any food poisoning. A GP did give me this diagnosis last year and even prescribed e some Ranitidine, but I was not convinced. Another sign is that I can no longer take red bean soup. If I take more than half a bowl at one sitting, I would get a feeling of pain and indigestion. How sienz. I wonder what brought this on... :(

Closer


A Dream
Swiped from cliffardo2001.
I realized several things on this recent trip to Singapore. Sleep comes easily to me now although I'm cramped in a single bed with KH. No longer do I toss and turn, knowing that he had easily fallen asleep beside me. Hugging him to sleep comes naturally now. And when he wakes up in the middle of the night to wet his throat, I know it too and instinctively reach out for his warmth. In terms of physical intimacy, I think that we've discovered a lot about of each other's buttons, but it doesn't mean that we've stopped looking for new ones. Hehe. In terms of mang zhang-ness, I think I can contain my temper better now (KH, don't laugh!). However, that doesn't mean that I have stopped projecting killer qi when the need arises. Hehe. And KH also reads my mood very well now and knows how to pre-empt things. He reads me like a book at times. Even so, he does not understand all that he reads. Haha. Where's the fun if there's no mystery, right?

SG20100711

At this segment of this post, I shall do a little bit of jemur nyawa to acknowledge KH's efforts to make me happy. Every trip down, he would try not to let me spend my own money. Maklumlah, SGD1 = MYR2.4. Upon arrival he would hand me a fully-reloaded MRT card. Meals would normally be in restaurants. And he would hail a cab when he detects that my poor legs have reached its limits. KH would plan where to bring me lest I get bored. And he would consider if the place is photography-worthy knowing my shutterbug ways. Thinking that I'm a fan of "One Piece", he surprised me with two themed T-shirts from Uniqlo. Cute. Also, when I bought an external HDD, he picked up the tab. And when I was stressing about my home downpayment, he readily offered me money and did not speak of repayment. Of course, I declined his offer. It's the thought that really counts. He is never calculative with me in terms of money.

You have given your love freely and without reservation. And it continues to inspire me to give more.

A 'Wet' Singapore V: Cooking Mama


SG20100712
Swiped from williamnyk.
Monday came quickly. Sigh, how time flies when you're having fun. JJ's medical leave ended, so he went to work. What does this mean? The king-sized bed is now available for skanking!!! LOL. I know Bunny is cringing as he reads this. Hehe. It's so much nicer having more space to manoeuver. Beats doing it on the bottom bunk of a double-decker bed. Wakaka. Did our COAT West re-enactments and proceeded to clean up. Having rejected all his healthful breakfast options, I got KH to cook me ramyun with oyster mushrooms and egg. So yummy when compared to saw dust in milk! With breakfast out of the way, we did some net surfing and then KH packed up some books for me to bring back. At around 1:00pm, I started cooking lunch. Just a simple spaghetti in green pesto (from Marks and Spencer, nice stuff), topped with some rocket and pine nuts. The accompanying dish was hardly Italian, steamed salted chicken thighs. Satisfying, though. Most importantly, KH thought so. :).

Post-lunch, we rested a bit, did more snuggling, packed up my stuff, copied some porn... and at around 4:00pm, we decided to go down for a swim. No cute hunks, but the swimming instructor was quite lean and tanned. But his arrival heralded the invasion of a whole bunch of kids. Finished our laps and headed back upstairs to shower. Leaving Singapore soon, couldn't help but cling on to the BF at every opportunity. With my arms around him and my head on his shoulder. I wouldn't let him move. Anchoring him down as though time would stop as well, but of course that's just wishful thinking. In the meantime, I was installing Windows XP SP3 on my laptop and by the time I forced the shut down sequence, it had never really finished installing. Luckily nothing was corrupted. Left the house and took the can to T1. Dinner was at Quiznos-- a more expensive version of Subway, but tastier.

At around 7 plus, I hugged the guys and left for the boarding gate.

"This is not the JetStar entrance. The other one."

Opps. My "bye" quickly turned into a "hi" again. Hehe. So off we went to the other end and I gave KH another hug and went through immigration. The flight home was uneventful. I slept through most of it. Too tired to notice the cute PRC twink beside me. So not me right? Haha. Thus ends my trip to Singapore! Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Without experiencing the sex, it's still a darn good read la, kan? XD.

Insane Inbox

Note: Oppps... I just noticed that I did not completely download the photos from my camera, so I'll have to pause the ending to my Singapore trip posts. Here's a filler for you!

A question for all iPhone users out there.... after upgrading to OS4.0 does your inbox go nuts intermittently? I use GMail and maybe the 80k+ mails in the inbox are giving it a hard time to sync. As you can see in the pic, the listing goes nuts with no sender, content and subject. Zombified e-mails. Takes a few syncs to clear things up a bit. Then it comes back again. Like a persistent credt card salesman. Lemme know if you have any solutions. Thanks.

A 'Wet' Singapore IV: Holy, Holy & Spruced Up Siblings

Woke up to an avacado yoghurt breakfast. Was fed 'banana' earlier, but one needs variety in one's diet. Hehe. I had rejected KH's suggestion of cereal, so he came up with the next best thing. Celebrated the holy Eucharist at the Church of the Holy Family, Chapel Street. KH was nice enough to accompany me although he's not of the faith. I think he's more receptive to the liturgy now-- at least he didn't roll his eyes during the sermon. Hehe. Thank you, baby. It really means a lot to me. Lunch was at the nearby Beach Road Prawn Mee. Met up with C-Mon, Den, HJ, Bunny and POD there. The two shoplots were full! But don't be misled, the prawn mee doesn't taste remotely like KL prawn mee. LOL. The soup has the right colour, but it neither has the right taste nor aroma. The prawns were big and the pork ribs were aplenty though. The ngoh hiong stall inside also did brisk business. Couldn't stay long as customers would stalk the tables like sharks, so we took the bus home to JJ's place. C-Mon and Den tagged along.

Beach Road Prawn Mee

More chatting with C-Mon and Den. He was busy digging information from me regarding the bloggers that I know. Then the subject changed to house-hunting and quirky BF behaviours. Hehe. He was telling us how Den does not like to be massaged. So, I got the green light and gave it a try. Hehe. Den liked my 'touch'! Wakakaka. Wine was brought out and KH served a month-old Shiraz to C-Mon! Goodness. I dunno how he downed that glass of 'vinegar'. The white dessert wine was definitely better. At about 5:30pm, KH and I went out to RedHill MRT to meet my brother. Together, we caught a cab to Spruce at Tanglin Road. American cuisine. My brother was quite stressed about where to bring me. I'm not that fickle le... :P. With some help from www.hungrygowhere.com, we ordered the "Three Dips" for starters. Their bread is quite heavenly especially with the hummus, tuna conserva and salsa. Our mains were the "Roasted Kurobuta Pork Chop" (very tender, fragrant and the miso butter sauce is to die for), "Signature Beef Short Ribs" (another tender number, but I don't quite fancy the sauce) and "Whole Roasted Snapper". Quite a shocker to see an ang moh establishment server the whole fish, bones, head and all. But it was great. Moist and flaky. Goes well with the lemon jam. The table beside us was busy oogling on our dishes before deciding on what to order. This is why I always prefer menus with pictures.

Spruce

Updated my brother about all the happenings at home. About what I did in Singapore. Talked about work and his dance classes. According to KH, he seemed a bit distant and stressed. Hmmm... I think he's right. But my brother is not one to confide in me. Ended the dinner with a Panna Cotta. That really did the trick. Was so full afterwards. My 'freeloading' BF wanted to pay my brother back for dinner, but of course my brother declined. Hehe. We took the bus back to Queenstown MRT, hugged him on the platform and parted ways. Stopped by Bugis Junction to do some grocery shopping at Cold Storage as I wanted to cook the next day. Grabbed everything in record time and headed home...

P.S.: Den FFK me for Sunday Mass! You owe me dinner!

A 'Wet' Singapore III: Tardy Tosai & Korean Cuties


Sachoom I
Swiped from williamnyk.
Sonny was someone I had not met in ages. Our first meeting was at my maiden clubbing experience at Play. Remembered him as the guy with the plunging deep V over his manly chest of hair (he told us that he had retired his deep Vs, :P). Having seen my FB status, he buzzed me and arranged a meeting. The best thing was, he was only one bus stop away from JJ's place. Our breakfast meeting was at 10:00am, but due to an early morning skank session, we kinda overslept. By the time KH woke me up, it was already 10:20am! Crap. Quickly made a call and rushed out of the house. In total, we were 45 minutes late. Luckily Sonny didn't pull a blackie face! LOL. He had finished his morning paper from end to end. He brought us to have his favourite tosai stall. Business was so brisk that the seller cooks stacks and stacks of tosai. For the first time, I tasted masala-egg dosai. Basically an egg dosai wrapped with potato filling. A very filling affair. Catched up on each other's news. Glad to hear that things are going well with him and his BF, and their future plans are laid out. Sonny was curious about Bunny, so he followed back to JJ's place. We did more chatting there but it was mostly JJ getting Sonny up to speed.

Sachoom II

Not long after Sonny left, KH and I rushed to the Esplanade to watch Sachoom, a Korean dancical. It's basically 80 minutes of dancing with a simple storyline. The audience was pretty young... It was a very energetic performance interspersed with humour and audience interaction. It was mostly contemporary with lots of hip-hop. Plenty of eye candy. Lean K-Pop dancers in tank tops and better yet, topless. And big boobies in tight Ts with sultry hair flipping. The main thread is about a guy Jun who finds his rhythm while trying to win the heart of Sun. In the end, he has a dance battle with Bin, the rival. After the show, they tried to get the audience dancing, but with the Esplanade's fixed seating, it was quite hard. The guy who played Jun actually stripped off his shirt and stood on the chairs in front of us... gyrating as the strobe lights went off... Yummy. After the performance, they had a photo session, and truth be told, the distance, lighting and makeup make a big difference. LOL. We did not have lunch, so we just shared a bun outside the hall (this detail is for you, JJ).

SG2010079

Dinner was at Soup Restaurant at Suntec City. The occassion was POD's birthday, but KH treated everyone because he passed his exam. Met Kidz, K850i, Harvey and the rest of the usual gang. Harvey was also a sight for sore eyes as the last I met him was during my coming out lunch in 2007. Spent a lot of time disturbing W850i and cam-whoring. Sometime during the meal, they blew a fuse and we had a candlelit dinner for 15 minutes. The steamed chicken, wintermelon soup, stewed beancurd, pork ribs, shrimp in crab sauce and vegetables tasted just as good in the dark. The party then moved to Spinelli's where we ordered some ice-blended coffee. Chatted and chatted until C-Mon and Den came over from their other gathering. By 10:00pm, we called it a night and POD drove us home. Zzzz...

P.S.: At the time of posting, I was told that Sonny broke up with his BF. Love is so fragile. :(

A 'Wet' Singapore II: Thunder Birds & Stuffed Wolves


_3020677bw copy
Swiped from mingthein.
Got up early on Friday to catch the MRT to Boon Lay. Our destination: Jurong Bird Park. It was a long ride down from Simei. Upon reaching Chinatown, it started to rain heavily and we nearly turned back. Seeing that it let up a bit, we continued our journey. We took a bus from the interchange at Boon Lay. The interchange was impressive. Completely-covered with air-conditioning! Just line up and when the bus arrives, go through the auto-doors to the waiting bus. Orderly and comfortable! Unfortunately, it was still raining heavily when we arrived and several other tourists were stranded at the bus stop. Some of the Indian and PRC nationals just ran for it. KH and I however decided to call it off. I was a bit dejected, but the weather can be unpredictable. So we headed back to the city.

Crystal Jade Palace

Before lunch, we did some window shopping at Wheelock Place and The Ion. Walked into a bag shop that sold many types of novel bags at very fantastic prices. Fancy a knapsack at SGD290 or an umbrella for SGD65? For good design, one pays a premium. Lunch was at Crystal Jade Palace, Ngee Ann City. I had bugged KH about it for ages and he finally brought me. Hehe. Muacks. Was served by very efficient cantonese-speaking waiters. They seem to magically know that we had run out of tea. Amazing. Since Bunny and JJ were running late, we started first with the standard siew mai (so-so), har kau (very thin skin, but too delicate), wu kok (perfect!), fung chow (reminds me of a taste from my childhood), siew yuk (moist and half lean, went well with the mustard sauce) and char siew bao (so-so). Later on, the other two added on har cheong (so-so) and braised noodles with dried scallops (the boric acid smell taste overpowering!).

National Museum of Singapore

KH did some shopping at Takashimaya and bought some Arena jerseys. Their trunks were also going cheap for just SGD12.90 per pair, but I already have an overload of swimming trunks. Then we went down to the food court and I tried Rive Gauche Patisserie's Guanaja. Sat down at the benches outside and shared it with KH. Knicked a spoon from the gelato shop so that I can feed KH (JJ said the aunty was curiously looking at why we asked for a spoon). Every mouthful was a burst of Belgian chocolate. Fantastic with just the right amount of sweetness. Bunny and JJ decided to head home while KH and I carried on to The National Museum of Singapore. Our main purpose was to catch Cai Guo-Qiang's "Head On". it's basically 99 life-sized replicas of wolves hitting a glass wall.

"The crux of this installation lies just before the glass wall, as the artist reminds people: invisible walls are the hardest to dismantle."

Head On

Can the context be shifted to gay rights? Heh. By itself, the museum's quite impressive. A reminder of the colonial style. Even a pair of newly-weds were taking their wedding photos there. Before dinner, we headed to Nic's place. After everyone had arrived, we took the car to Simpang Bedok for makan-makan. The whole group was there-- POD, Nic, C-Mon, Den, Bunny and JJ. Ordered dishes that were quite good like salted egg chicken, curry fish head, pumpkin prawn, bean curd and fried egg with shrimps. Dessert was cendol again, but this time round it tasted exactly like what you would get in Malaysia. Asked Nic some funny questions about NS as he had just come back from his reservist stint.

"Do you get military-issued underwear?"

The answer is no. :P. Sanitary pads? Wakakakaka.

P.S.: Hope Nic is enjoying his UK trip!

A 'Wet' Singapore I: One After Another


Baikohken
Swiped from williamnyk.
Of my whole Singapore trip, the first day was the most gruelling. KH bought me the 8:40am Jetstar to Singapore, so I woke up at 6:00am to prepare and SK was nice enough to drop me off at KLIA. Unexpectedly, even such an early flight was delayed, so I arrived at Changi T1 twenty minutes later than scheduled. The whole gang was there to greet me, KH, JJ and Bunny. Took the cab home, I freshened up a little and we immediately headed out to Circular Road for lunch with Eskay at Baikohken. They serve quite an amazing ramen. KH and I shared a shoyu and miso based ramen. The full-sized order really bowled us over. Huge! And sooooooo many pieces of char siew the size of pork chops! Next time if you're there, just order the half-size (but I did see a girl finishing one by herself, but not everyone has a gremlins appetite). And do go early. Eskay was his usual fabulous self. Was nice seeing him again.

Tanjung Pagar KTM

Next, KH and I headed for the Tanjung Pagar KTM Station. In case this piece of history gets demolished after the end of the lease, we decided to photograph it. Was a bit disappointed with the architecture but its quite interesting to see an odd slice of Malaysia frozen in busy Singapore. It rained when we were about to leave, but we braved it anyway to get to Annie's Peanut Ice Kachang stall at a the Tanjong Pagar Food Center. However, we ordered the cendol. LOL. Tasted nothing like what I'm used to, and think either the santan or the syrup was sour. :o.

Pinnacle @ Duxton

Moving on, we ended up at Pinnacle @ Duxton. Quite an amazing private residential condo made up of several buildings connected together with sky-bridges. The facade's quite modern and the recreational area is well-designed too. Managed to ogle at some hunks playing basketball topless in the noon-day sun. Glistening sweat of their muscled backs. Yummy. Upon reaching Block G, we were told that we needed a CEPAS-compliant SMRT card to access the sky bridge, so we did so at the nearby 7-11. By the time we got back, the stupid kiosk went haywire, so we couldn't pay the SGD5.00 entrance fee. Waited for the guy to troubleshoot it. Wasted half an hour just looking at the fellow restart the kiosk and pinging it from his workstation. He kept doing the same thing over and over. Einstein's definition of insanity. :).

Marina Sands

Frustrated, we took a cab to Marina Barrage, but that was another stroke of bad luck. Apparently taxis aren't keen to go there because its quite out of the way. So the taxi driver just dumped us a Marina Bay Sands. Not a waste, managed to see the large-scale construction going on there. The three buildings were quite breathtaking, especially with the Sky Park capping them. Look at the pics, they look like artist's impressions. Another thing to note is the use of free-moving metal scales on the building's facade, making it look alive when the wind blows against them. Mesmerizing. The shops opposite the hotel were no less extravagant. Luxury brands everywhere. Outside, is a giant plexi-glass dome that will pour water down into the malls water canals when it is complete. And from the tiered wooden platforms, one gets a fantastic view of Marina Bay. Also had the chance to walk along the newly-constructed Helix Bridge. Another wonder of steel and plexi-glass.

Millennia Walk

Next on our list was the nearby Milennia Walk (it was a short walk away, but KH let me take the cab after I manja a bit). Has an interesting water feature outside that is flanked by several pieces of colourful abstract art. Inside is Parco, a Japanese department store that I think won't last for long looking at the traffic there. My poor legs were screaming for some rest, so we stopped for coffee at Coffee Club. Ordered a cup of Hazelnut Cappucino that came with a biscuit and stick of cinnamon instead of a spoon. Dinner was upstairs at another ramen joint in the Japanese food court, Itadakimasu. Later, we headed to Raffles Place to meet Kidz. Had some time to burn, so we did some window shopping. Saw an ang moh sporting a hard on at Top Shop. He was going commando under his jersey shorts, so I could easily catch the outline of his glans on the material. Woah! Met up with Kidz at Starbie. He was all dressed up for his night shift. Had a frappucino and a berry bar while chatting the night away. He almost forgot that he had to get to work. Hehe. Nice chap. By the time we got home, my battery was near-drained. But that didn't stop us from skanking a bit. Hugged KH tight and drifted off to sleep in no time at all.

The Rambutan Trimming Accident

I am not a hairy person, but I do need to trim the nether regions once in a while. Especially true when anticipating sexual encounters with dear KH. Not so nice la welcoming him to an unkempt forest and having him coughing up hairballs after working his way through. So before my trip to Singapore, I whipped out my pair of safety scissors and started trimming my pubes. I'm definitely no Vidal Sassoon, but I think I did quite a great job. But when I started on my balls, I think was a little bit too zealous. Metal collided with delicate skin and ouch! Saw a drop of red blood forming on my left scrotum. Eeeeek. A near-Bobbit experience! Out came the tissues. Boy, that place sure can bleed. Put some Betadine on it and finished the job. Pheww. Perhaps I should consider a Boyzilian next time. Hehe.

LRT Celebrities: Guitar Gary

Guitar Gary works in KL Sentral. He sports loads of yakuza-style tattooes on his arms. Whenever I see him on STAR LRT, he'd have his headphones on and his HTC Smart would no doubt be blasting guitar riffs. He'd be tapping his foot and his air guitar would appear. And when his air guitar is deemed insufficient, his hands would go for the stainless steel poles. His fingerwork would bring him snaking up and down. Reminds me of Jackie Chan in the movie "Snake in Eagle's Shadow". Itchy hands he has. Syok tak?

Do you have moments when you get carried away on the LRT? Raise your hand if you've pulled off any Matuatama stunt. Hehe.

A Simple Sunday?


Precious Mother's Milk
Swiped from fesign (in Rome July20-26).

Church as usual on Sunday. Was ambushed to buy raffle tickets again! 42" LCD TV and Canon DSLR. Pray that I win. Lunch was at Restoran Chi Kar Yin at Bandar Puteri Puchong. Hakka cuisine. According to SK, the place has many positive reviews on the internet. More than ten actually. Sad to say, it was a disappointment. We ordered Hakka Salted Chicken, Vinegar Pig Trotters, Pepper Stomach Soup and blanched lettuce. The salted chicken was the best dish. Big portion. Full-bodied herbal fragrance. Use of free range chicken. The pig trotters were completely wrong. The vinegar they used was of sub-standard quality. And the pepper stomach soup at the foodcourt near my house tastes better than their's. For MYR8.50, they mixed in lean meat. My goodness. I'm not going back there. On our way to get the car, saw Taiping Mali just a few shoplots away. A healthy crowd. Wanted to ta-pau their yellow sticky rice, but it was sold out! Must try it out.

Next we went around shopping for bathroom fixtures and lights for SK's new condo. Found a few good bargains.

Lighting Shop Boss: You're renovating your house?

SK: Not yet. Soon. I haven't gotten the key yet.

Lighting Shop Boss: How soon?

SK: Err... 3 weeks?

Lighting Shop Boss: Oh, goodie! Some people who come in here tell me that construction hasn't even started.

SK: >_____________<"


Back home, mum and SK munched on durians. I just drank some refreshing coconut water and ate some buns from Bread Talk. Lazed around on my bed for a while before heading out to Taman Bukit Jalil for a jog. Good to vary my workout a bit as I feel that my body has gotten used to my swim routine. Overheard at the jogging track:

Father: Girl, why you pull your shirt down? Later monkey come and bite your nen-nen how?

WTF?! Was tired out quickly, but I did have a good sweat. Enjoyed a bottle of carrot-apple juice. Saw a cute twink and a rugged hunk. All sweaty and flushed. :). Dinner was brown rice-pumpkin porridge with fried fish, pakchoy and salted egg. Watched a couple of TVB serial episodes and called it a day...

The Bomb

Foreword: In case you didn't notice that I'm missing my regular blog postings, I'm currently having my conjugal visit in Singapore.

I'm trying my best to enjoy myself with KH, but things are getting a bit out of hand back home. First things first, I must start digging out a bundle of cash to pay for my condo down-payment. Secondly, mum is having one of her drama moments regarding house renovations. Thirdly, even SK is not spared as her family is currently in a big tug of war regarding money. Sigh.

Cares, cares go away!
Come again... like never?

Pray for us, people. Thanks.

Losing Sight

SK's housemate never fails to entertain me with her flip-flop mentality in buying her dream house.

"We don't wanna buy at Taman A because it's too far from my in-law's place."

"Am now checking out Condo B cause we heard that the rental return is very good!"


So confusing right? From the first statement, you'd think that she's buying for own use. But her second statement is a complete U-turn! I thought she wanted landed property! It's difficult enough trying to find a property that fulfils our specific criteria, but if those criteria keep on changing, I think one should just stop looking altogether and think things through.

"Erm, I've decided to buy Taman A after all."

"What changed? Your in-laws moved closer to Taman A?"


Oh well.

Berkhidmat Untuk Negara

Yay! At last, my cheque is in the mail! Thanks to the PCB, the bloodsuckers at the IRB over-taxed me last year. If the government's really serious about KPI, we should be paid interest on our extra deductions. It's only fair since we pay late charges. But of course we know that's not gonna happen anytime soon. Hope everyone else gets their cheque soon. If you're not expecting one from IRB, means you memang gaji tinggi and kena bayar lebih!. Hehe.

Wet Market Celebrity: Rice Queen

Here's a spin-off from my LRT Celebrities series. The blogger version of my Saturday morning FB market updates. Enjoy. It's not very common to see PLUs at the morning wet market. A (stereo)typical Friday night would most probably be spent hanging out with friends, and most would prefer to sleep in on Saturday. But once in a while, I do catch glimpses of domesticated couples who do actually go out to buy their groceries. Domesticated they might be, but they still dress to the nines just to buy some vegetables. Always fabulous. However, last Saturday, my gaydar picked up something interesting-- a queer rice merchant. He was sitting on a stool amongst sacks of grains and many aunties were jostling for his attention.

Auntie 1: Uncle, uncle, is this fragrant rice?

Rice Queen: Aiyoyo, I'm not uncle la!

Auntie 2: Uncle, uncle, how much is this brown rice?

Rice Queen: Not uncle! Not uncle! I not yet get married la! (he used the Chinese term for unmarried girls!)

Auntie 1 whispering to Auntie 2: He says he's still single la. Call him leng zai!

Auntie 2: Err... Leng zai ah...

Rice Queen: Yessssssssss?


Another example would be Grat's Noodlie I think. I'll let him tell you that story.

P.S.: Sorry Tater, don't be fooled by the title, this post is not about you!

Musca Domestica

Spotted this fly at The Store (Seri Petaling)'s bakery. It was shaking the dust off its feet on the unbaked pastry sitting outside the counter. I took so many photos of it and never once did it shy away. A natural model. It was so intent on putting the finishing touches on that kiddy bun. Hope the baking process eventually killed all the germs. :S. On a similar note, I had breakfast at Steven's Corner, OUG some time back. An uncle was buying vaadai. He opened the kuih cabinet and started fishing the stuff out with a pair of tongs. One missed the plastic bag and fell on the floor. Looking around and seeing that nobody noticed the accident, he picked up the vaadai and put it on a plate. He turned around to look again and found me staring at him. Seeing that I wasn't go blow the whistle on him, he proceeded to the counter. Later on, a waiter came along and found the nutritionally-enriched vaadai sitting on the plate. He put it back inside with the rest. I wonder who's the lucky customer who got to eat that piece!

Missing Jase

It's official, my Pioneer Di, Jase is officially on the Missing Queers List. Disappeared from FB, MSN, GTalk and Blogger. SMS go unanswered. Someone told me he changed his number. Talked to his ex and he too has difficulty getting in contact with him. But I do have his home address. Hmmm. The last I heard from him was from a comment he left on my blog at the end of April 2010. Anyone see him?

LRT Celebrities: MSG Max & Seedy Sam

A couple of sweet-looking boys. In a few years, they'd be twinky enough to harvest I reckon. Sorry, I don't have any frontal shots for you to confirm that fact. Just take my word for it. But then, I'm not blogging about their looks actually... As you know, I've seen many shocking things on the LRT, but this somehow managed to make my jaw drop. The kid on the left was actually eating Maggi cup noodles. He was slurping away on the train! Must have bought it at a 7-11 nearby and by the time he had boarded, it was chow time! Amazing right? So Air Asia. And I thought eating nasi lemak on the train from the packet was news-worthy. Kids these days. The other day, another bunch from La Salle regaled me with their stimulating banter:

Kid 1: Ona-ni! ONANI! ONANIIIIIIII! (while flapping his arms)

Kid 2: Lancap!

Kid 1: Onani. Onani. Onani. Onani. Onani. Onani. Onani.


Classy, right? Lovely kids.

Pray for a Smooth Journey


Check out this nifty prayer to be said before entering the loo! Spotted it in Bandar Seri Begawan. It is interesting to note that demons have a specific sex too! Lets hope this does not create a loop hole for asexual demons. Amen.

Playing House

Ever played house? Imaginary wedding. Imaginary spouse. Imaginary house. Imaginary chores. Imaginary life. Everything seemed to gravitate around "The House". The focal point of being a grown-up? And so we finish our studies, join the rat race. We scrimp and save to eke out a living in this cold, heartless city. The goal seems to be to bring a fat pay cheque home. Get some wheels. Have a roof over our head. Yes, the very same roof that we imagined during our childhood. That goal seems to be so distant these days with ballooning real estate prices. So difficult with so many factors to consider. Money. Location. Freehold. Leasehold. Density. Quality. Developer. BTS. STB. Bank loans. Interest rates. Feng Shui. Termites. Neighbours. Acquiring a place of your own is most probably one of the biggest decisions in one's life. To sign on the dotted line. To be in debt (unless you sleep on a mattress of cash that is).

I bring up this topic beause it seems that it's house-hunting season among the BFF. Some had made their puchases earlier and some even make a hobby out of collecting real estate. But some of us are currently looking for our first. And in that search, all the headaches have surfaced. It's a big decision, so we try to factor in everything. To get it perfect. But sometimes, we lose sight of the main focus. Or even worse, like the Chinese proverb-- to finally choose a broken lamp out of thousand of lamps. For me, SK got the ball rolling. Her housemate's getting married in January 2011, so she decided to get a place of her own seeing that rental isn't that cheap anyway. After much research, she found a place in Bandar Kinrara. And the amazing thing is that her housemate who got a 6 month headstart still hasn't found a place. Little wonder since her budget is fluctuating all over the place and her fiance has one hundred and one veto reasons.

Both of us are currently in the process of purchasing the property. I am buying 2 floors above her unit. I have just gotten my booking receipt signed, so the next step would be the S&P and the housing loan. Actually, in my mind, I had thought of getting a landed property. But seeing how prices are and the locations that are affordable are quite out of the way, I decided on stratified property. Quite a nice place. Vacant possession just last May. Low density with supposed resort-style facilities (take that with a pinch of salt). The floor plan is quite good. Should make for good space usage. Quite enough for someone who does not plan to bung out any kids. But anyway, I am not discounting the possibility that I may strike it rich later in life and move to a Play-Girl-style bungalow somewhere in Mont Kiara. So I don't mind starting small. :).

KH: So where do I fit in your new place?

Moi: Erm. I got say let you stay meh?

KH: Bad!


Breeders have the added advantage of taking a loan together if they're gonna get married. But for PLUs... relationships are more volatile and less binding, so better take the safer route and keep love and money separate. But not to say that breeder marriages are so sacrosanct these days, just that at least the spouses have a degree of legal protection when things go sour. I digress! Anyone willing to sponsor another 10% for my downpayment? Anyone?

LRT Celebrities: Mother Smelly Crab

Welcome to another edition of LRT Celebtrities! This time round, I offer no pictures, only an ear-witness account of what happened. :P. I present to you Mother Smelly Crab. I dunno how to describe her... perhaps a Chinese Baba-Yaga? I don't really know how it started, but I think she tried to jostle for a place to sit at the Bukit Jalil station where she got on. She lost to an uncle I suspect. So she dragged her sorry ass together with her plastic bag and umbrella to the side. But she was not out yet. She started snorting loudly a few times (like a rhinoceros preparing to charge? :P). And then it began...:

Warning: The content you are about to read may contain elements that you may find offensive or crude (if you can decypher my phonetic cantonese that is. Some parts are translated for better comprehension).

"Ma chau hai! Nei ge ma ge hai."

"What are you looking at?! Never seen a sick person before ah? You've never been sick ah? I walk so much you know. Wanna find a place to sit also don't have!"

"Ma chau hai!"

(an uncle gives a glib remark)

"Yeah la, my smelly vagina did not give birth to you!"

(a shocked young woman lets her sit)

"Ma chau hai!"

"I warn you! I've been sick for days. Sick until I don't know what I am doing. I'll beat the hell out of you."

"Ham ka chan!"

"I curse you walk out the road get bang by car!"


This continued on till Pudu. Amazing right. Upon alighting the train, she said:

"Tai ka lai si!"

Actually, that's our line, not her's. Pengz. What's the world coming too?

Touched By A Psycho Ah Long

Remember Psycho Ah Long at my office? Well, now that I am back at KL Sentral, I'm once again the object of his 'affections'. In this latest installment, he hit my ass while I bended over my laptop and exclaimed:

"Hmm... your ass has quite a nice feel to it..."

Err... ohhhhhhhhhkayyyyy. And in addition to him calling my name out of the blue during office hours, he would sometimes come over and caress the nape of my neck while saying:

"William-zhai, William-zhai"

I'm just so lucky! But one thing's for sure, it make KH angry as hell! Hehe. Love to see KH's protective side.

"How come like that??"

Do you find anything wrong with the sentence above? For me, I really hate to see double question marks. It's like typing in caps. It works perfectly well with one question mark. Why add another? For emphasis? I don't think its stated anywhere that double question marks are rude, but I don't like it anyway. Maybe it's kinda like this emoticon O.o that I banned KH from using when conversing with me via text. Irrational? I dunno. It just irks me. A lot. Hehe. Now you know which buttons to press. :P
