Lately, there had been a flu epidemic going on around the world. I had sore throat, fever and flu while I was in Krabi. A few of my friends caught the flu while overseas as well.
2 of my friends had food poisoning while we were in Krabi. I was fortunate to escape that sickness while in Krabi although I had been feasting on road side food and also at flies infested places.
Last Friday, I went back to the office to work and had lunch at one of our usual lunch places. I had a Wat Tan Hor (Cantonese Fried Noodles). It tasted a little funny hence I didn’t finish it.
A few hours later, I was vomiting my Wat Tan Hor in the toilet. I had to rush some work on that evening and couldn’t head home early. I was vomiting in my room – into my waste paper basket – and then continued my work.
I vomited at the car park while getting my car. I vomited while driving home.
After all those roadside food and flies infested places, I can’t believe my stomach fell to a plate of Wat Tan Hor which came from a coffee shop which was graded A for cleanliness!! Tunasing!!!
I’ve been an avid reader of comics since I was young. This hobby of mine continued until today. I probably have few thousand comics in my room ranging from Japanese manga to local comics such as Gila-gila. However, I have limited my range to focus on Japanese manga. Unfortunately, my Mandarin is not good hence I had to rely on translated Japanese manga, done by local companies, such as Kreko, Arena and Umbra.
Recently, I found one website with all my favourite Japanese manga translated into English i.e. www.onemanga.com. I got so hooked on it until there was once I surfed the website from 3pm to 3am the next day O_O
In light of my new found media, I decided to dispose my collection of Kreko, Arena and Umbra. I was planning to either sell it off to the local old-newspaper-guy or chuck it into one of the charity boxes around town. I managed to gather a few hundred old comics and tied them up. It came up to 5 or 6 stacks of comics around 3 – 4 feet.
Mum then told me that one of her friends is interested in disposing my old comics. I left them outside my porch for Mum’s friend to collect them.
On the next day…
Me: Mum! Your friend has collected the comics? I left them all outside the house and it’s not there anymore.
Mum: Huh? No, she didn’t. I didn’t call her.
SOMEONE STOLE MY OLD COMICS!!!
That’s Klang Valley for you! Theft in Klang Valley has become so rampant that the Malaysian Courts have taken such factor as consideration in sentencing a thief in Court. I’ve gotten my shoe, computer, television and clothes stolen.
There used to be a time where we used to hang our clothes outside the house. However, we stopped doing so after we find many of our clothes stolen, including my underwear O_O. And I thought this only happens in Japan.
Few weeks back, I was listening to one story iterated by DJ KK from 988FM. He was recalling his holiday with a tour group in Hong Kong few years back. In his group, there were, among other, a guy (“the Guy”) and a couple. Since pornography in Malaysia is banned outright, they decided to catch one pornographic movie shown in one local cinema.
With full of excitement, the gang quickly grabbed whatever snacks they could get and rushed into the cinema. The couple was seated next to the Guy – with the girl sitting next to the Guy.
According to him, it was pretty interesting.
Just as the ‘interesting’ part finished, the Guy said to the girl,
“you want…..want to try? :D”
The couple was shocked. Speechless. And then..
I blogged about Doraemon’s ending here and here.
I found another fan who created another ending for the Doraemon comic series. Not exactly Doraemon’s ending. More like Nobita’s ending.
(Read from left to right)
If you dont understand the story, it’s basically about Doraemon getting fed-up with Nobita and purportedly gave him a gadget that will help Nobita. All Nobita has to do is put the gadget into his mouth and pull the trigger.
Bang, it’s a real gun.
My friend, Florence Lee created a series of comic strip of Mr MooOo. Mr MooOo’s comic strip will be publish from time to time on this website.
Guess how does the cow fly? 😀
As 2007 approaches, my faithful Doraemon calendar in my office will be retiring to the shelves. A new 2007 calendar will be taking over Doraemon’s place.
In view of the upcoming festive seasons, one of my firm’s clients, who is involved in the lingerie business, sent me a Christmas card with a copy of their 2007 calendar full of girls in lingerie.
As everyone is aware, when a couple gets married, they will usually send out invitation cards to guests inviting them for their wedding dinner/reception.
This year alone, I’ve attended 3 weddings. One of them can be read here.
My question is, Are Wedding E-cards acceptable by our society?
To me, if I were to receive a wedding ecard, my first impression would be, “Cheapskates”. However, if we look at it on a better light, a wedding e-card has many advantages. Those that I could think of are:-
1) Save cost/paper
2) Save time from forwarding wedding cards to invitees
3) People tend to keep emails after reading them. But for wedding cards, most people would dispose them off.
4) Can be produced quickly. Behold! the xes.cx wedding card! took me only 15 minutes!
What do you think? 😀
