Hell Hath No Annoyance

People who make plans that do not materialise due to their inaction annoy me.  People who say i am obsessive compulsive because i am quick in putting my plans into action annoy me even more.  People who ask me to lunch with them and then postpone it for a seemingly reasonable reason, only for me to find out later that they may have been watching the blardy Oscars make me even more annoyed.

When the same person does all of the above within the same day, i get very unhappy.

——————–

Maybe i’m MM-ing too much.  But… (to the tune of It’s My Party)… this is my blog and i’ll whine if i want to, whine if i want to, whine if i want to… u would whine too if it happened to you!

11 Year Old Promise

Excerpt from a conversation on MSN on Friday,

Iceman: So do you want things to come to fruition?

Me: I don’t know man.  I’m in my brother-brother mode again hor?

——————-

Finally!  I finally made it to JB to visit Iceman’s home.  It was funny.  Was great to finally see Iceman’s family.  Heh.  We had dimsum for breakfast and… er.. a coconut/drink break before coming back to Singapore with Iceman in tow.  Went to the new Blooie’s in the eggless estate for lunch and Mr. Abandoned join us. 

Iceman and Mr. Abandoned went to the driving range after lunch, while RX8 joined his ex-boss and others at Dempsey for drinks, and i headed home to zzz. 

Met Iceman and RX8 for dinner after which RX8 went home to sort out his darn plants & broken pump for his mini-pond while Iceman & i went to Balaclava for a short while, and then to Eng Wah to watch Ghostrider.

——————-

I decided to let the brother-brother mode came down for a short while… but it didn’t seem to be a very good idea.  So… brother-brother mode is back up.  It’s strange to dream of MX5s while checking out the RX8.

Oh and btw, my dad just bought the new Passat 2.0 turbo.

Coincidence Strikes Again

Told my colleague whom i went drinking with yesterday that i was at Balaclava last night. Bala’s also 1 of her regular joints. We were happily chatting away when suddenly we realised… that she also knows Flayer, Flayer’s bro & Dentine! *Faints*. Know what the saddest thing is? She has confirmed that Flayer’s a player. “Tried and tested” i quote. Sigh. Ok. This is so over. Cheonging friends, will always and only remain as cheonging friends.

I shall just focus on my lunch later. 😉

Shelf Life

At MOS on Sun night, i was introduced to this gal who’s like totally in love with my cousin, AKKK, but he doesn’t like her.  Now, this cousin of mine is amazing.  He has this innate ability to get gals to fall head over heels in love with him… and then he runs away when they come on too strong.  Heh.  Anyway, this gal that was at MOS with us is 31 years old and not too bad looking… the naturally tall & lanky type.  A true blue Ectomorph.  But guess what AKKK said?  He said, “Don’t want lah.  31 years old so old.”.

I duly reminded him that he’s turning 35 this year.  Not that young either.  Plus, i’m turning 28… don’t keep using 30 as a benchmark right?  Very sad leh.  But he said, “28 still ok… as long as don’t hit 30.”.

Hmph!  Win already lor!  What if a gal maintains her looks darn well even after 30?  Still cannot meh?  Now i know why so many gals keep their age a secret.  Bleah!

—————————-

Hey!  The starter of the forever-25 club is coming to Singapore for a concert.  Perhaps i should go… u know lah… we all same gang one… must support support a bit.  Haha.

Oh… and Ukelele is coming to town for a concert too!  This, i must watch!!  I love the lead singer!  Heehee.

Smoke Screen

I remember reading this article online about how this Chinese student wanted to “rent” a girlfriend for the Chinese New Year holidays so he can present her to his parents when he went back to his hometown for the holidays.

Well, today, i accidentally became Shibby’s smoke screen for the CNY holidays too.  I have no idea how it happened since i’ve gone to Shibby’s house on an almost annual / twice a year basis either during CNY and/or for his birthday BBQ over the past few years.  But just now, his parents and relatives somehow managed to mistake me for his gf?!  Like HUH?!?

Among our group of friends, i was the first to reach his place.  I rang the doorbell & Shibby’s dad opened the door.  I said i was looking for Shibby and his dad went, “Oh!  U’re Shibby’s friend huh?”.  Then he proceeded to call Shibby.  I entered the house, greeted his mom & other relatives in general, and gave 2 mandarin oranges to his dad.

Just as Shibby’s dad turned to put away the oranges, Shibby exclaimed, “Wah!  Never give angpow uh?”.  I smacked Shibby on the shoulder as everyone laughed.  Shibby’s uncle (i think it was his uncle) then said, “How come never intro to me?”.  Brrrrrrrrring!  The warning bell went off.  I sheepishly shook the uncle’s hand as everyone beamed widely. 

Shibby & i quickly retreated into his bedroom.  Shibby then said, “Jialat lah.  Scandal liao.  I think they think u’re my gf”.   I was like… yeah… thanks for making me your smokescreen man.  Sigh.

Anyway, i was too embarrassed to go out for more food and stayed in the bedroom till Partner & the rest arrive.  (Partner & wife laughed like siao when they heard about what happened).  I didn’t leave the bedroom at all till it was time for me to go home.  As i said my goodbyes to Shibby’s mom, she was happily beaming away when she gave me an anypow.  Sigh.

At the door, Shibby said, “Don’t worry lah.  Smokescreen for 1 year only.  Next year we tell them things didn’t work out.”  I raised 1 eyebrow & said, “Thanks uh”, & quickly reached for the lift button.  Sigh.  *Shakes head*.

Writer’s Blog

Oops… i really meant writer’s block.  Had so much stuff i wanted to write about CNY but now that i’m sitting in front of my pc, i’ve totally ran out of things to write.  Sigh.

Let’s see.. quick recap of everything that’s happened so far…

  • 15 Feb – Pre-CNY gambling session at RX-8’s house.  Lost $80.  Bleah!  But Iceman made money and was considerably more cheerful after having a fun time with friends… so i guess it was good that made him go to the gambling session with me.
  • 17 Feb – KTV’d for almost 5hrs with Zounds and friends. 
  • Had our extended family reunion dinner at this supposedly fantastic restaurant called Chin Lee at Bedok North.  I didn’t think the food was any good.  It was average at best.  Bleah.
  • Day 1 (18 Feb) – Dad’s car broke down at the petrol kiosk, just as we were about to go visiting.  Suspect the starter konked out.  2nd time my dad’s car konked out during CNY.  Thank God i have a car this time!  Spent the day at home waiting for the tow-truck to tow my dad’s car back from the petrol kiosk… then went to my super rich uncle’s home for dinner.  How rich?  Let’s see… this is the 1st time i see someone having towels in the toilet for drying hands… macam hotel toilet like that.  And of ‘cos… all the branded stuff in the loo… hehe… took a photo!  😛
  • Went Kandibar, Barfly & MOS with my cousin (who shall henceforth be known as AKKK… oh btw, Zounds, don’t know why but my couz, out of the blue, told his friend about the time the 3 of us were drinking at Alleybar and he said he drank tons that nite and had a really good time… and i concurred.  Heh!).  Had a really fun time.  Heh… was happy when he told me that 2 of us friends asked about me ‘cos the last time i went to cheong with him was a month ago (i.e. on that “Fateful Friday”… how time flies hor?).  So happy that i was missed… *sniff*.  Heh.  Got home at 5+ in the morning.
  • Airbus flew in from BKK today and i met him for dinner at the airport.  Bumped into a leading stewardess friend of his when we were having coffee after dinner… hope this doesn’t spark off any scandals for him.  Haha.
  • Going to meet up with the Singnet folks (well, maybe 1 or 2 of them lah) at Shibby’s house.  Hope i remember to bring some mandarin oranges… 😛

And some photos…

 

 

Tow truck bringing my dad’s car home… heh.

Some Rain Must Fall

Saw this line today “Into each life some rain must fall” and remembered that i once used this as my email signature… though i don’t remember where i got the line from.  Did a search on it and found the whole poem so here it is:

The day is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
The vine still clings to the mouldering wall,
But at every gust the dead leaves fall, And the day is dark and dreary.
My life is cold, and dark, and dreary;
It rains, and the wind is never weary;
My thoughts still cling to the mouldering Past,
But the hopes of youth fall thick in the blast, And the days are dark and dreary.
Be still, sad heart! and cease repining;
Behind the clouds is the sun still shining;
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life some rain must fall, Some days must be dark and dreary.

– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
