I went for a work meeting yesterday. So everyone was seated waiting for everyone else to arrive. Not too long after 4.30pm, a-girl-we'll-just-call-her-S came in. I was a bit shocked initially. It was as if she had just gone for a dinna function or a party. That make-up on her face... was just too drag-queen-ish. My manager wasn't even half as close, not to mention other female colleagues.
But that wasn't the worst. Let me just visualise her for you. She was wearing some black/brown top with a half-jacket. That's fine. It was a disaster for the below-waist portion. When you scrutinise her top-down, well she was begging for it with her outfit and make-up, after the ab you start to see her black/brown top changing colour starkly into white panties!!!!!
OMG - were those nanna panties? Panties with patterns some more!! High above the waist. With P-A-T-T-E-R-N-S, almost child-like panties. White panties with cartoons!? OMG...That's as bad as grown men wearing printed silk boxers, and not at a costume party.
I think everyone saw her wardrobe disfuction but could anyone have said anything to such a situation? I guess not. It's almost OK for me to see guys wearing undies with their pants hanging off their asses. But S is a girl and the waistband of the undies was a few inches above her waist!!
Therefore I always always invest in undies. U know wot they say, it's not only the outside that counts, the inside does too! If not more so...

But it's all for a good cause as this november business of growing moustache and beard is to raise awareness on men health issues. Prostate anyone? The most remarkable illness that still discriminate on a sexual basis. And depressed men are on the rise too. Ahem, don't be shy people, the nucking futs need to be checked from time to time too.
If I had known earlier then I wouldn't have to shave for the whole month? Neah, I wouldn't!!

And I am so happy that he and Sony-BMG will not repeat all the mistakes made with the earlier 3 Idols where their debut albums had been launched within 6 days after winning the competitions.
我说嘛，某某群体的人，就是喜欢动不动就以死相许， 动不动呢就恼羞成怒、要你索命。当然，不可否认，这乃是致命一击。当然，有人问你要不要一起死，你一定会说，多谢不送了。面对脑塞、只会以死相逼的人，我们只得悬崖勒马，不可能做陪葬品。留得青山在，我肯定会送你干柴，让烈火把你烧得轰轰烈烈、一干二净， 省下我帮你掘墓的功夫，尸灰还可当肥料呢！

Limited-edition trainers by Eboy for DKNY £79. Thirty-six individually numbered pairs, available exclusively at Microzine UK.
I think I was reading one of the UK fashion magazines at Borders this afternoon. Apparently it says that this is just a pre-launch limited release. The official release will be in January (2007?).

Good & Bad
Bad first: Has Idol run out of money? Why do they keep buying crappy songs? And wot's with the night theme? "Maybe Tonight" from last year and "Night of My Life" this year?
Good: Damien Damien Damien - did he turn the song into a soulful & touching one!!! I am in such a dilemma now. I know I should vote but I don't want Damien to launch a made-in-6-days album. And all Idol winners have done badly in the charts. In contrast the runner-ups like Shannon Noll & Anthony Callea have done very well.
I'm sorry Damien but I believe you deserve a better album.

I have been a good and bored boy staying at home for the past 2 days. Mainly because I was kinda feeling a bit sick on Sunday. But eventually I fought it off. And today, I didn't dare exposing my shiseido-pampered skin to the #1 natural aging agent - UV index as high as 11!!
So I decided to scrub/clean some window blinds. Gosh how many thin layers are there!! My hands soon threw in the white towel after 2 10-foot sets of blinds. And there are still 5 more sets to go! My hands are now screaming for some SK-II desperately.
We had a birthday dinna with the birthday gurl Winnie at The Lynch on Friday. The food was great. Actually only the entree. I didn't like my fish-&-chips. It was a tad oily. However the entree calamari was superb. The surrounding was nice with Victorian wallpaper (normally not my thing if the printing was fiercely large and blackish) and French drawings.
Not getting as many hours of work as I'd like to finance myself for the Sydney tour. So I guess I have to stay at home more or look for some free meals then. Hehe.. My bro picked up a RM50 at the road side a couple of days ago. Mom always says that we are no good at picking up money on the street. Not as good as she is. She even picked up RM100 sometimes. I want nothing more than a open cheque signed by Richard Branson. That's a thought before I haul my ass up to clean some window blinds.

It's just so sweet at the end of the song where the look on his face plainly said - I've done it. I did. Touchdown for the "people's tenor"!!

And there you go...pants off mista!!
Assume position (plz don't read between the V-line)
And up we go! (wot would you be thinking?)
Started today at about 8am...Of course with the usual toast and Milo in front of the TV. And then I got back to my room and wrote in the cards for bro and Dad. Initially I didn't wanna go out as the weather forecast predicted thuderstorm. Oh wth - I am sitting at home doing nothing. So I went out to get to Bridge Rd as planned. Despite the gloomy overcast in the CBD it was hot in Richmond! I couldn't stop as I was sweating. Surprisingly the CBD was much cooler than Richmond.
So I got back to the city. On Flinders St as the tram was passing Fed Sq, I saw a bunch of ppl. It looked like some sort of exhibition. Exhibition? That's my thing! It was a pottery exhibition. I saw some pottery horses which were the most prominent ones there, as I can still remember how they looked.
Feeling like my artistic cells were still hungry for more, I crossed the Yarra River to get to Southbank's SundayArt Market. Saw something that I really like. I think I'll buy them next time. They were some miniature clay-made fairies and mermaid which can be hang at branches in vases. I think the lanterns at home can go already.
And there I saw those acrobatic guys pulling their stunt tricks. I had seen them a year before and they were still wearing the good old Union Jack boxer briefs! Haha.. So I just took a few pics and left (without being generous, if you know wot I mean).
Oh yea~ Omg! was exactly my reaction followed by boi boi. I didn't think that Dean had gone so far and bare in the show biz. Flipping through tabloid mags on a Friday afternoon while having a not-so-nice choc muffin at Border-slash-Gloria-Jeans, I was quite surprised to see another series of pics of Dean n-e-k-k-i-d.
Gosh... She's so large. Can someone please do something about her? Gastric bypass, lipo suck-suck or any of the Olsen's/Lindsay's/Paris'/Nicole Richie's diet (read: drug)? How can this be happiness? Sometimes I don't get it - how can one be happy with oneself when one is so heavily unhealthy? Oh I got it - health isn't one of their happy pills. But as the saying goes, as long as they are happy...MMOB.
That's the post for the day bois & gurls... Looking at the weather I don't think I'll be going to Bridge Rd or Chapel St for shopping (me = sob sob; wallet = victorious). Studying? It' hasn't come to that desperado yet. Ciao!

Only comment is - could they be more plain on those wrappers? You know - some highlights, curling, shadows, blink blink and how about some real ribbons? =D
Santa, Jennifer Hawkins (Miss Universe 2005 I think) & John So (Melbourne City Mayor)
Despite being ill-treated at the market last week, I totally got my revenge yesterday. I developed 42 pictures at some pharmarcy. After I passed the stack of pictures to the cashier, I reached for my wallet and pulled out a $100 note.
Cashier: OK so it's $1.20.
Me: (looked a her as if she's speaking spanish)
Cashier: (looking at my $100) Do you have something smaller?
Me: (rolling my eyes, huh something smaller? Oh oh she must really mean that the pics are only $1.20. Something tells me I better have some small change in my wallet/pocket before she discovers that she's making a sale of no return. So I looked again into the wallet and woo-hoo there's a $5 note. With a little shaking hand I handed her the note)
Cashier: This is the change.
Me: (turning away)
Cashier: Do you want a receipt? (handling me one)
Me: (receipt? Oh come on as if I needed another 2 second for her to realise that she might have to fork out $11.40 from her own purse) Yea sure!
With that I sped off the shop with a Ha!-I've-saved-some-money look on my angelic/boyish face. Will I do the same thing again? In a heart beat! =P
Some sms-es from my friends after hearing of what happened:
Cheryl: Jealous! >.< (well she had told me she wanted to develop pics too!)
Winnie: What? Anyone with a bit of common sense would realise that it costs more than that! Haha. Anyway, maybe it's just your lucky day (cos of me my bday) haha
Dennis: Ha.. It Really Depends How You Look At It! Ha...
Angelene: Evil u! She nv study maths b4? I'm going xxxx (another story)
Oh yea...Did I forget to tell you that I am the wolf under the red hood?

OMG - I think he's by far the best Idol we've had so far in Aus. Despite the small frame, his voice can reach the top of a 20-storey building. He's singing live with such a strong, unfettered voice. Apart from Shannon, Guy and Paulini I don't know who else is so good. Can't wait to buy the album!!
My favourite Irish-cum-Aussie Idol since the beginning. And I'll be voting for the next 2 shows!!
He just sends beautiful shivers up my spines everytime he sings...

To prevent loss of some loyal readers (not that I have many), I better post as much gossip/update about myself and others as frequently as possible! =P
Woke up surprisingly early today - despite I had finished exam yesterday. I think it's because I didn't dread waking up only to study or to go to work or exam. It was good despite I basically had nothing to do but wandering around the apartment, rotating among the kitchen, living room, kitchen again, bedroom, computer, bathroom and kitchen again. Then I sat my butt down and did some picture editing and continued making a card which I had started before the exam. I am not going to post a picture of it here. Just so you know...
Soon I remembered my vow to clean the apartment...Changing into shorts I shifted the chairs around and some throws, and the vacuum machine roamed to life and boi did we suck the whole universe from hair to toe nails =D and everything in between. Felt so good after a good old cleaning of the apartment. I think I hadn't cleaned it for 2 weeks in a row. Yucky I know.. (",)
Initially I didn't wanna go out for some shopping but then the weather witch wasn't going to honours the weather forecast so it wasn't gonna get sunny as promised. First stop Borders - I did bring my 30% discount voucher with me with M:I:III and X-Men III in mind. But I decided against it because they were not that urgent in my currently tight wallet. Needed to save for some birthdays - which is where I spent the money for, at Bayswiss. Bayswiss is a furniture-slash-decorative shop I really like. They have the best coffee scented candles which are so not expensive (but everything else is!!).
I shan't elaborate more for what was the money spent on simply because I don't wanna put ideas in people's minds. U know. Boi did I find the very very nice coasters with giraffe-skin-pattern-like prints. Love 'em! There was also another set with broken glasses twirled in circle with stainless stell. Unfortunately there was only 1 set left and the steel looked scratched. So I didn't get that one. (Oops can't upload the pic in the same post, stupid blogger - always like that)
Aha - I guess the best bargain I got today was the Kylie Minogue CD which was only $18.82 for 2 CDs and a DVD!!!! Impressed? I wanted to also buy MoS's Classic but then I shouldn't because even Kylie wasn't on my shopping list! Actually all the stuff I bought earlier weren't on the list too! However they were inevitable? Because I venture off to ramble about my budget and spending, let's focus on saving! Back to Kylie, when her Ultimate Kylie came out last year i didn't buy it as I thought, u know, I already have many of her now songs. I just didn't have her earlier songs. And now 2 CDs and a DVD of her MVs!!! That's really a bargain. Big W does really deliver its words. Good on ya.
So yea that's about wot happened for the stretch of the day so far. Am not gonna elaborate on buying 4 oranges and a packet of brown sugar (but now you've already known now!) at Safeway. Muahaha before I left QV, I skipped, scratch that, more liked limped, into Officeworks to get some DVD-Rs to burn Will and Grace seaons 3 & 4. I am hearing Sherly's "Yay". Hahaa
Looking forward to tonight's dinna at MaBrown with the quils!!! Yum yum...I so hope to go there again with EMA.

As I stood in front of the stall waiting to be served, 10 secs passed before a Chinese man asked me what I wanted, which I dare say definitely not a taste of what about to be a disastrous 街市experience.
Me: Could I have 2 GREEN chillies please?
Him: Two? (with the tone that people actually buy 200 chillies at one go)
Me: Yes, 2 green ones please.
I even pointed at the boxes which had chillies other than red chillies. And he picked a green one and a yellowish white one.
Me: No no 2 green ones PLEASE.
Disaster about to start when he, as if doing a magic trick, just put them down and picked them up again - with the green and yellowish white chillies!
Me: I want green chillies. G-R-E-E-N.
Finally realised wot my lips shape was he accomplished which appeared to be a very difficult task.
Oh yes, I didn't realise my lemon buying experience was about to turn very sour too. They were selling for 5 for $2, so 40 cents each right. You would think. I took three and told him I had taken three lemons. Looking at me puzzled, he really was, I asked him how much was the total.
Him: 20 cents. (Handling me the chillies) Oh sorry 30 cents.
I could understand if he wanted to charge a little more coz I only bought TWO and I think he was new and didn't want his boss to know that he would sell things cheaply. OK so I let him go with that and handed him 50 cents. Also I figured he'd need to settle the chillies and lemon transactions separately because the amounts were too overwhelming for him.
Me: And how much are the 3 lemons?
Him: 5 for $2.
Me: Yes I know that. I took 3. So $1.20?
Him: (still) 5 for $2.
Then another girl came by and I thought OK she would wave her magic wand and end the unfortunate experience for me.
Him to her: 三个林檬多少钱？ (i.e. How much are 3 lemons?)
Her: It's 5 for $2 (again?!) so $1.50 for 3.
I think my small eyes just popped open at her.
Me: Isn't it $1.20?
Him: (STILL!!!) 5 for $2.
I should have just thrown those lemons at them but instead, being a nice person as I am, I just took the lemons out (not the chillies as I'd already overpaid for them!) and put them back.
Me: That's it!
I went to another stall and got my $1.20-for-3 lemons! To add salt to the wound, when I went to the supposedly cheaper section of the market, 20 cents for a lemon.
My palm found its way to my forehead and they had a little accident of banging. I should have been more anal about the 20 cents he still owed me.
