It all started with a tempura

One day, I was out with Eileen (Tan) and eating Japanese food.



To be more specific, tempuras! Oh my gosh is it called tempurae in plural?

So anyway, I was waggling the tempura around a bit and I asked Eileen, "Eileen, do you think my (former) main picture looks damn fucking cock-eyed? Coz everyone else says so."

I suddenly realised I have always had double-vision and wondered why.

Eileen took a look at me, and sniggered. To my disgust, she actually begun to drink her soup while still sniggering.


Now of course, Eileen is a very good friend of mine and I really value her opinion on whether my main pic looks "damn fucking cock-eyed".

But instead of answering immediately, she tantalized me by, after sipping her soup, looking serenely out of the window.


In fact, she looked so transquil that one might have thought the scene outside was that of the inside of a snowglobe with little white flakes floating gently down a sweet little cottage. With a chimney.

I ignored her and pretended to read the menu. I also tried my best to make it look as if the menu is the cheam-est book on relativity.

Damn I look smart!

This behaviour of Eileen's continued for precisely 15 minutes. I could stand it no longer and whacked her on the head with my tempura, now half-eaten.

I would also like to digress and say that I've written this entry before because it was accidentally deleted, and therefore I keep writing repeated phrases and having a strange guilt that I am plagiarizing (myself). -_-

Eileen jumped into the air, and after rebraiding her hair because it flew around in a rage, began to pace fretfully around the table in quick, thoughtful steps. I imagine if Cloudy were here with us Cloudy would have bit her on her calves to curb such unsociable behaviour.

I rapped Eileen smartly on the head again.

Finally, she spoke.

"I was thinking deeply for 13 minutes, and I decided that it is not cock-eyed."


"DON'T PATRONISE ME!!!" I bellowed, spitting bits of chawamushi on her.

"Ok ok," said the fearful Eileen, cowering. "It is a bit cock-eyed."

"Alright! I'd change it tonight," I replied.

There was an awkward silence in which Eileen started to hum. In case you wanted to know, the song is "Da di hui chun".

"So ..." I said. "You said you were thinking for 13 minutes. What about the other two minutes?"

"Huh?" said a scared-looking Eileen, her eyes looking strictly down at her noodles.

I repeated my question, this time without the "So ..."

"Eh, I was, eh, thinking whether jellyfish were hermaphrodites," she stammered.





Hmmmmm.




I don't know about you, but I hardly think anyone would spend 2 whole minutes staring out of a window dreamily ... may I illustrate to you the look again?



As I was saying, dreamily, thinking whether jellyfish were hermaphrodites.

As a matter of fact, I think she was fantasizing about Fei Yu-ching, whom she recently admitted she thinks "looks very attractive for a man his age".

Never mind that disgusting Eileen.

I went home and went about the task of settling the my blog's main photo!!

So I puffed up my cushions, twirled my pretty locks on my fingers, and set the camera's self-timer!!




-_-

After a series of unsuccessful photoshoots, I've decided to enlist the help of my Mum.

Oh yeah the blur photo seems to have a halo on my head, ay?








And it's time to choose!!!

And VOILA!!!!!!!





Do notice that the blue black on my knee is no longer there and also that Syphillis (my stuffed toy) is peeking out from behind! =)

Yay!!

*****************************************


Hong Kong photos!!


Mong Kok, where the famous "Nu Ren Jie" (Woman Street) is!


A menu. Duh.


Inside their MTR, which says the destinations in three proud langauges.


Typical Hongkong street.


Old man selling sausages.
Damn those lightbulbs are bright.


Look, the waiters write their names with calligraphy! How cool is that?



Lan Kwai Fong is the Singapore equivalent of Mohammad Sultan! Except smaller.


Hong Kong wishes you a happy 2005! Yay!


Me with a fake LV bag and looking ashamed because I was the only one wearing gloves.
It was cold ok!


And off to Shen Zhen!! Nothing much there, except fake branded galore! Madness I tell you. They have so much imitation there, the sellers do not only sell you their products with a photo album of their goods! Oh no! You know what they do? They show you the REAL LV catalogue, and urge you to take your pick from there.

If I had any real bargaining skills at all, my purchases would be around half the price stated here. And mind you, AAA grade!





I stuck diamantes on my phone with tweezers and superglue!


Lookie what I bought for Cloudy!!





Cloudy is a bumblebee!! =)

Oh yeah and one more thing.

Eileen accidentally fell down and lost her front tooth!!! Very poor thing!



Yikes!!! Don't laugh at her ok! She's getting it fixed already. I will kinda miss that cute smile. Ha ha!!

p/s: I've got to go out already, so more blogging later on! Might be going to Zouk tonight. =)

Meanwhile, to the million or so people who told me to switch to Mozilla, here's my verdict:



If you ask me, I'd say all browsers hate me.

I had double vision too. And I couldn't take it anymore so I went to check it. I had a squint and all. Then I got prescribed spectacles (or contacts if you want) and slowly the condition will improve. I look damn cock in my old pictures too.

You should check too. No harm. I go to the NEC. Cheap somemore. But I went to polyclinic first to assess then I got subsidy there. Go check lah.

Condolences to your 'bogay' friend. :X

Ooh... so you went Nu Ren Jie! Still remember that place very well, and all the wonderful shopping bargains to be had there.

And poor Eileen! She'd better go get it fixed ASAP

FYI, there are male and female jellyfish, so no, jellyfish are not hermaphrodites.

Cloudy looks so cute in that bumblebee suit! But the suit has no wings. Scared it'll fly away?

Okay, firstly, Im sorry that you got browseritis. Ok, first picture on that blog, I dunno what looks more yummy, you or that piece of shrimp tempura... hmmmmm. I actually liked the first picture too. All your old pictures are nice..though you don't get to show off your skirt so much. I think you should rename your stuffed toy, we don't want syphillis to be so close to you, its a crappy disease to have. Im starting to get tired of saying you look hot, but you look hot in hongkong too. Your phone looks really cool. Hmm you could start a business doing that. Now a more important topic... cloudy... He looks sooooo cute !! makes me want to have a dog like him... sighhh.. I miss momo my friends dog, he stayed with me once, we got along so well! Poor Eileen. I fell on my face once, now my front tooth has a bluish tinge for good. Have fun a Zouk... and if you get time, explore this program called w.bloggar, I use it for my puny blog, its pretty good.

then consider using opera? since it's not really a open software and is actually done by a company who's out to earn money. may work better for you?

but there will be ads at the top for the free version

but works really great for me.

good luck with your browser problem

A broken heart is not necessarily worse off than a naive heart.
Break it as if you have broken your voice cord.
Then you might become a singer ;)
