So kcaBekorB


Gosh I just realised that I am so brokeback-mountain! Didn't realise it when I was buying the pair of cowboy pants!

Haha hence this post had to come online as I realised it after wearing it on the first day of CNY.

Taking this chance to wish everyone 灵犬显灵贺新岁 旺旺新年万事吉。

心惊胆跳

I was in front of my computer applying evisa. The supposedly mute door bell rang and jump-started my alert system. Who would be at the gate? I impatiently got up and rush outside. Trying to peep through the reflective windor glass I saw a man standing behind the wall. I couldn't see his face, just the thin body line.

Moving to another part of the house where I thought I could get a better view of the could-be intruder, he might have sensed my presence and got into his car instead of lingering around. Damn! I didn't catch the plate number exactly. It was a Saga. The plate was WCH 6***.

This wasn't the first time stranger comes knocking or trying to break into my house. It's dangerous for people who have big houses to live around in parts of Malaysia where the wealth gap is visibly tempting. Robbery, assault, rape, homocide.

I remember when we first moved in there was a guy who also pretended to be a sales man and wanted to gain entry to my house. Another time it was before Swee San and I boarded MH148 headed for Melbourne. The padlock at the main door was kinda turned around to a position where my cousin had to use tools to turn it back to the original position. And the water tray for Hazel had been moved from its usual position, which was unlikely for Hazel to move it herself.

Can't remember who called from home while San and I had already started boarding. We immediately sat down and talked to whoever-that-called. I still have weak knees and standing-up hair whenever I think about this.

Tiong Teck is going to Taylor's College in Subang Jaya in March. Tiong Hoe will probably be alone at home where my parents won't be at until at night. I hope he listens to us (lock every door before you open the next, wink*wink*The*Others) and doesn't wander around.

It used to be worse when my Dad didn't allow us to lit the surrounding of the house at dusk. We couldn't see when we come back from our shop in town. Not to mention if anyone was hiding. It just sends shiver up my spine. With 3 still-young dogs (Hazel and Almond slightly more than 1 year old and KoKo 3 months old) in their kennels most of the time (they can be great terminators of plants around the house when unwatched) I am worried if they could sense any alien in the house. On top off that, poisoning a dog is like a walk in the park.

Worried sick I am.

Oh the day of 314-minus-100

314 is the number of my parents' business premise in Tanah Merah. Take a 100 from 314 and the becomes the day I hate in February. The Valentine's day. A day which has been glorified by gifts manufacturers, Hallmark/Memory Lane, TV stations, etc so much so that all the singles and maybe-or-maybe-not available are made miserable and singleR, if that is possible.

Here's what I propose: I think we should have a day for all the singles and single the coupled out. What should we call it? Un-valentine's day = tacky; the SNA day = 2simple; can anyone think of something kool and creative and hit it right at those couples' faces?

I am sounding bitter and sour. Totally at my best sour-grapes attitude. Luckily I am not living in big cities where I'd be hiding at home. Going out would be a complete heart-thumper - seeing right-at-your-face intimacy and commercialised romance. =P

Here's something to do for the Valentine's day, a prank call to the exes where you tell them that you have tested HIV positive or any other fantastic STDs. Only call back the next day to clarify that actually April Fool has come earlier this year.

How about those extra $$$ that would have been spent on your other-half if you had him/her? How does sexy/slutty lingerie sound? It's time for some inventory check on those stuff. You never know when the rain is gonna fall do you? Also probably it's time to join the gym and build a toned and sexy physique for future use. For those who are well loaded but still single (though highly improbable), maybe one could book as many romantic restaurants as possible. If you can't enjoy it, might as well not let the couples enjoy it too. Hahaha

旺旺年团圆饭

Some of my nieces and nephews... (and my bros and sis). Some of them have grown/changed so much and some haven't changed a bit since I last saw them! I am not a child person... They don't like me at all! But it's nice to see them. I look forward to be playing or taking care of my bros' and sis's children!
My cute Dad and Mum. They were pretending to be eating kim-chi. Thanks to the powerful Korean TV series 大长今。 My parents have turned into potato couches since dunno when. Now it's their turn to be guarding the TV set instead of me. It's their turn anyway. It's amazing to see how addicted the fans are to the series, in almost every Asian country. My family (all but me) is watching the series for the 2nd time!

Latest furball in my family =P


The name is KoKo. She is koko-ishly cute!!

Back in Malaysia

Just an account of what I have done so far since Dec 22 2005... Haven't been blogging at all (complain later). Now waiting for Mum to come back from her line dancing class so that we can see photos together on the TV. Yup she just got back and headed for the shower. I'll aim for a quick posting now.

Hmm, dating back to Dec 22, it was a very good day for me. It was my first time on a business class. The seat was so spacious. The leg room was fantastic! And the service and food. It was splendid. I thought I couldn't fly economic anymore when I went down to the lower deck (yes I was on the upper deck of the plane - fucking exciting for me!) to visit Swee San (and yes she didn't fly business class due to her old ignorance). Haha.. Well it's really an unforgetable experience for me.

Pey Jung came from Penang to visit us in almost-flooded Kelantan on the next day. We didn't bring her around much as there's nothing much to see in Kelantan but paddy fields and perhaps mosques? And muddy flood water. She wanted to buy some broidery baju kebaya (pardon my spelling) but unfortunately they are not ready made. But I guess she enjoyed herself very much with the infamous keropok gote (as my sis and PJ affectionately put it).

While Pey Jung was here, we embraced a new member to our family. Enter Koko (or Cocoa, we haven't really decided on which yet). She's our new pet dog, a German Shephard. She's sooooo cute but she has itchy teeth. Swee San was slightly bitten by her today. Together with Hazel and Almond, our house is really crowded with pets now. Hahaha...poor Tiong Hoe, my brother has to take care of them. We do help but the dogs love him the most. Funny and realistic enough, Hazel doesn't even wanna come near me when I have no snacks in my hands.

For the new year, we went to Penang. Yea, I love Penang more with each visit. It's not as crowded compared to KL and not as ulu as Kelantan. Furthermore there are my favourite prawn mee and char kuey teow. Thanks for my aunty, Mr/Mrs Heow, Angelene and Aunty Peggy for bringing us around for the best cuisines in town. I also bought 3 pair of pants from Seed, my favourite brand of clothing. This line of clothing always fits me very very very well. I also snatched a tee shirt which was supposedly for my brother! Hahah

I think Mum is ready now, which means that I'll prolly stop here. Till then. Please take care everyone, and Happy 2006. Will try to post more soon.
