ye old good frens

i paid my old frens a suprise visit at taylors today. not really suprise la, but mae was like,
tysern ah, tomoro go taylors with chian to visit ppl. wan? kinda spontanious but, yeah, i went. scheduled time was to meet there at 11.00am, but i was only late for 5 mins. ok, i know it's not good to say that, but to the ppl that know me, being late 5 mins is a real blessing. Met up with wai yee and su lynn plus i think erm, my old fren from physics tuition along side with mae and chian at Asia Cafe. Ate their super famous pan mee, and after abit of chit chat, i was ready for session 2.

when ken hui and ee fei's break ended the following hours, we adjourned to salmon steak for their GOD-KNOWS-HOW-THEY-MAKE-MONEY five dollars per set meal. Yeap, you heard me, 5 dollars per set meal. saw wen jie and steffie there, but sadly cuz the crowd was too huge, we went to a kim gary taste-a-like restaurant. i just ate sandwiches cuz i was quite full at that moment.

after that, i adjorned to allin's to pick up mae's aunt before heading to the curve. at the pharmacy, i had a blood sugar level test, and *clap clap* my blood sugar level has dropped from a staggering 7.9 to a 5.9 . yeah, celebration time. bring out the shandy and all the fuckin can drinks which i had abstained from, for quite some time. nah, better jaga at this lvl lah. from here on, it's photobloggin. so much easier. here are the photos taken for the day. enjoy.

At Asia Cafe, clockwise from left, su lynn, tysern, wai yee and yi chian. i was eating their pan mee, which was recomended by mae and chian. i asked for "sheun kam ping", but they gave me plain lemon juice. aih. so sour like mad lah. still got a bunch of ppl on the other side of the table, but can't really recall their names.

At the Kim Gary taste-a-like restaurant. i was havin a light snack, which others opted for desserts or the nissin noodles. we look like, ermm.....*insert wat u want* in this pic.

PART 2: Jolly jolly happy happy at The Curve. Man, that was seriously lame.

Nice scenery + nice supermodels + good camera skills = gorgeous pic!

two gurls, a hottie and a chinese stage. what more can i say?

hmm, their deco was really good yeah. there were performers from china doing some stunt to a mere 50 plus crowd. sad but, the performance was quite alright. the usual ones lah, like the plates spinning on top of the steel rod, magic bricks which seem to stick together, and a magic show. overall, quite okay.

Shops that we (mainly the gurls) visited:-
1. nichii fashion city
2. nichii fashion city
3.nichii fashion city
5.truffles cafe.
6.padini concept store.

it will be a knockout situation if i squash myself into this baby-tee and shake my ass in cheerleading. but the words are quite true also loh, horr??? =p

food posing at truffles cafe. thanks to mae's aunt for the big treat. it's cheesy rusti with bacon, eggs and broncolli. the rusti was flavour to perfection, and the cheesy stuffs made it melt in ur mouth. 2 huge slices of bacon simply added a toast to it. delicious!

next post will be on how deadly stress is, with a LIVE model to show the effects. stay tuned!

cultural status

Today, in Malaysia, there is no longer just the Chinese. Along the way, the Chinese people divided beyond dialects and religious faith.

We now have denomination within the Chinese. The major three groups are Regular, Cina, and Ah Beng.

The Regular Group is the minority, making up less than 20% of the Chinese people. This group has the following characteristics:
1. Speaks English as the first language.
2. Thinks the world owes them a living.
3. Uses the Internet more than the other two groups combined.
4. Loves the iPod and/or IKEA.
5. Watches one or more of the following TV series: Sex and the City", "Friends",
"The OC", "CSI", "One Tree Hill", etc...
6. Thinks that the Regular group is way larger than it is and makes fun of the other groups, particularly the Ah Beng group. Why? Because it's fun.

Recent studies have also shown that there is a growing splinter group within the Regular group known as the CPWTTANC group. (CPWTTANC is short for Chinese People Who Think They Are Not Chinese.) This growing subgroup are considered elitist by some and are found making statements like "I wish I were in the U.S." or "This never happened when I was studying in Australia." They also tend to speak with an unidentifiable accent. The women may also prefer to date white men from foreign countries with the excuse that local men just "don't understand me" and have the secret desire to be taken away to the U.S. to live in a sitcom.

The second Chinese group, The Cina Group make up approximately 55% of the Chinese community. (Cina is derived from the Malay word Cina which means Chinese and is pronounced "chee-na". And you will have to say it in a condescending tone for effect.) This group is considered mainstream and contribute to the numbers that reflect development in the country. They are the masses in context of the Chinese community. In other words, if you want to sell something to the masses of Chinese people, the Cina is it.

The Cina are identified by the following traits:
1. Speaks Mandarin or Cantonese as the first language.
2. Generally quiet, self-effacing, and obliging but are actually shrewd and calculative.
3. Sees Taiwan as the place to be.
4. More likely to forward chain email to people in their address book.
5. Goes to Halo Cafe or Wow Wow Cafe BY CHOICE at least three times a year.
6. Has Astro hardwired to Wah Lai Toi.
7. Usually good in mahjong or chor tai ti, and plays it almost everyday.
8. Knows all the dim sum dishes by name.
9. Seventy percent of lighting at home generated by flourescent lights.

The last group are known as the Ah Bengs . This term was probably made up by the Regulars in the early 80s during the cultural invasion that saw the mass import of music and movies from countries like Hong Kong, Taiwan, and to some extent, Japan. This phenomenon saw the more open-minded and runaway members of the Cina group defect into Ah Bengs and its feminine equivalent, Ah Lian. They just took their Alan Tam and Anita Mui a little too seriously.

Perhaps the most made-fun-of group not only by its own Chinese people but by people of other races, the Ah Bengs are often seen as people living on the edge and have more flamboyant tastes.

One may identify The Ah Beng Group by these tell-tale signs:
1. Built-in visual self-defense mechanism that keeps people away from them.
2. Have enough amplifiers in their one car to power speakers for six cars.
3. Hair not in their original colour.
4. Volume of voice is automatically five decibels higher than everyone else.
5. Excessive use of the phrase "Kan Ni Na Bu Ciao Chee Bai". (Although, to be fair, some members of the Regular group have been reported to use the phrase on a daily basis as well.)
6. Once a fan of one of the following groups: Vengaboys, Dr Bombay, Aqua, or the Cheeky Girls.
7. Their Proton car does not look like a Proton car due to modifications.
8. For the Ah Lians, have at least one bag fashioned after a furry animal complete with the head.

So, which group are you in?

RM 20.06

So, what happened to your new year resolutions? Is it fully fulfilled, or down the drain. Well for mine, i knew this was coming, so, i din do anything much about it. Cause chances are, i will forget my resolutions and live life like normal. So, what matters is, just enjoy the new year eve to the max yeah. In whatever form possible. disco's, club's , countdown events, karaoke's, and so one. So, how did your brat here enjoy new year eh? Here it goes.

Er, karaoke? Ahahaha, that was the pre new year party. Redbox it was. As expected, everyone was singing and the best choice of songs were -DUH- pop songs. Rap songs turned out to be a huge mistake, cause rap songs' beat are usually out of time and cocky. Er, like when nimalan and ting tried to sing candy shop?? ahh...leave that scenario to your own judgement. We had ten peeps in our rooms, mostly balau-ers. Wei huang, yi ting, nimalan, wing chuan, wei june, ee lynn, yi chian, me, shiat nee, and brian. Since we had a hi-tea set, there was food and there were drinks.

For food and drinks , we had:-

it's called christmas and new year's combo aka jingle blue. when they served it to us, the top part was blue. but i don't know why it looks like this in the pic. the bottom is actually a blend of alcoholic mint, while the top is a sweet refreshing aqua liquid. taste very good, it's not really sweet, it's a blend of minty flavour with and zest of aqua.

We had curry puffs, crabsticks and a whole lotta other things as you can see in the pic. There were also fish fillets with fries, hehe, i whacked the whole plate. Food was alright, the only thing that was a problem is that it became cold fast. Cuz of the high power air-con blowing down to it.

Mmmmm, crabstick with chilly sauce. Looks really nice eh, but it's just normal, i can tell you. the meat was rather firm, while the breadcrumbs on the outside gave it a crunchy feeling.

After our fantastic food and beverage encounter, we continued singing. popular songs were like, there' you'll be by faith hill, my heart will go on by celine dion, and a whole load more. and of course, good entertaiment must come with a hefty bill. pfft.

The total came to a whopping Rm 400.20 .Thank god i had a 100 bugs voucher, if not, the damage would be worst. Now, i know why they say, never go to red box during their peak hours. Since there were ten ppl, each person had to fork out 30 +, ouch, but overall, it was a good day spent.

Group pic outside redbox. From left:- shiat nee, wei huang, tysern, brian, wing chuan, yi ting, nimalan, ee lynn, wei june, and chian was the photographer takin the photo. hehe.

Okay, enough of red box. This is how my new year's eve afternoon went. After that, i adjorned to wai yee's house to have a pizza party, b4 going back to the curve and one utama to continue new year countdown celebrations.


At the curve, the music was rather bland. hitz fm was there, and aih, the concert sucked shit. no rave. i went there with chung kent and kee peng, and met up with ting, nimalan and brain. then came in the keruing guys like juin yen, jack, kwok liang, siu hong, kenneth,....bla celebrate the countdown. din bring my cam there, boohoo. if not, i would have taken shit load of pics. after the suckass party and the fireworks cum the coutdown, i dragged kee peng and chung kent along to the rave party held at one utama.

The rave party was more my speed man. with trance and techno music blasting away, i was crazily dancing on the floor. the dj that was spinning was jungle jerry, and his beats were rather hard.

The rave event. All local dj-s, but the speakers were loud enought the move ur heartbeat. If you read the leaflet, the podium dancers were actually the pole dancers!

urr...jungle jerry with his trance and tribal sets.

Actually, when the rave opened earlier, they were charging people money. But when i saw ppl gushing in and the barriers got loose, we just crashed in. So, i saved on my entrace tickets! Ahahaha. For a free rave, the music was quite good. but if they were to charge ppl money, then i think it will be not really worth it. when i got it, there were pole dancers, yeahh...and all the guys were staring at them. hehe. as usual, i saw ppl puking on the dance floor, euuu... and some drunken bastards were just zonked out, lying on the road nearby.

That's for my new year celebration. at least, i can happily remember that my first 2006 rave was at one utama.


I will blog about my genting trip on my other post. cuz if i put it in here, it will be too long. so on the 4th jan, while we were still in the new year mode, me, yi chian, kee peng, ze xiang, and rinnie adjourned to watched Cheaper by the dozen 2. the movie was a great laugh, and some parts very soo cute. i liked the part where the 2 dads were at the cinema, that was the super funniest part of all. okay, i do not want to spoiler anyone here, so...i'll move on to the events.

i dragged kee peng, xiang, chian and rin to eat this thing. it was super-uberly nice. presenting the seafood platter. shioook gila. the mayo cum tartar sauce on the seafood was simply great. everything was hell fresh, and the prawns were coated in garlic sauce. Mmmm. one word. Delicious!

A few kewl snapshots of the funni muvee.
