Sui Lin’s Birthday @ Velvet, 15.4.2006
This year round, Sui Lin had her birthday bash at Velvet. Celebrating your birthday at a club is either a bold move or you’re mad. I definitely wouldn’t want to celebrate my birthday at a club. I still love my liver, man.
So anyway, she invited loads of people, so many until the stranger on the next table is a friend of Sui Lin. Also, it was sort of a joint birthday party with Kwang, if I’m not mistaken.
Throughout the night, I hung out with Cris. Ben Lai, Melvin, Sow, Big Ben and Sharon Dilirius.
The club was PACKED. Every second I had people pushing me left and right. It was hot like a sauna too. Melvin had a ‘waterfall’ problem, he was sweating like a pig, but luckily he had his trusty white handkerchief with him 😀
Further, there were so many people in the club until I had people stealing my cup. I left it on our table for few minutes and when I came back for it minutes later, I find that our table and my cup have become someone else’s table and someone else’s cup.
Despite the huge turnout for Sui Lin’s birthday, no one actually tried to bombard her with alcohol. Even Sow didn’t want to bomb her! Sui Lin was roaming around the club, SOBER! I wanted to get her a drink but it was a huge hassle walking to the bar as there were too many people.
Since the club was pack like a can of sardines, I decided to chill at Terrace Bar with the Hardsequance crew. Moments later, I saw Sui Lin being drag out from the club into Terrace Bar’s unisex toilet. Speaking about unisex toilet, I find it uncomfortable. I don’t want any girls waiting for my cubicle while I do my business. Also, I would have to aim properly so that I would miss the target 😛 Further, the unisex toilet does not remind me of Ally McBeal’s office toilet. It reminds me of Mamak toilets.
So back to Sui Lin, apparently I heard that Sow bought her a tray of shots. Sow is an evil man. So much for, no more birthday bombing.
As such, it was the end of the night for Sui Lin.
Sow: I wanted Sui Lin to lie on the floor drunk and scream “I don’t remember my name anymore!!”.
Unfortunately, Sui Lin didn’t. All she had was a headache. Boohoo. Anyway,
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUI LIN
Also, another birthday shoutout to Gayvin Tan. Although you’re so far away in Melbourne, you cannot run from me!!
I received this msg from Gavin this afternoon.

Anyway, thanks for the favours i.e. buying lotion for my mum. Dinner’s on me! Hope you have a great one! More drunk pictures please!
What is this?

I always kept quiet and smile to them because my car…it’s kinda complicated. See it for yourself…
“Anorexia is a lifestyle, not an illness.” [unknown source]
“thinspiration” is a term synonymous for pro-anorexia, or pro-ana for short – maintaining anorexia. a few years back, many websites have begun to personify this as “Ana”. one pro-anorexic said, “Ana helps me feel in control. She helps me do at least one thing right in my life.”
“Ana is an art form, a revival of the ancient art of body modification, only instead of just piercing, tattooing and adorning we are changing the structure and shape of the body itself.”
[source not verified.]

the objective of pro-anorexia websites
– to continue to encourage anorexics to continue with their eating disorder, avoid recovery and discourage people from seeking help.
– for those looking for advice, tips and support from fellow anorexics to help them become “better” anorexics.
most pro-anorexics have their websites adorn with pictures skeletal-like girls, with skin stretched across their bones or pictures of teen celebrities Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie and Mary-Kate Olsen – to encourage them to continue with their obsession. many of pro-anorexics consider this a “lifestyle choice”.

they don’t think themselves as victims, but more than ‘survivors’ or ‘thrivers’ – “We thrive upon challenge, upon competition, upon the raw stimulation of life, keenness of our senses, strength and artistry in our bodies, alertness and clarity in our minds’ ..
this is really beyond anorexia. “Anorexia Nervosa is a complex psychological disorder. Starving oneself or simply being skinny does not necessarily imply that one has Anorexia. A person diagnosed with Anorexia eats very little indeed – they don’t just skip breakfast – they almost opt out of food altogether. This is often coupled with obsessive exercise. Life becomes a daily obsession with food.
how bad is it, really? pro-anorexias have their own food pyramid. water is staple ‘food’, and next are diet pills.

the pro-anorexia culture has grown so wide (in the US) that 29 years ago, the National Association of Anorexia Nervosa and Associated Disorder was set up by a lone woman, which has expanded through time.
cult or culture? obsession? illness? what do you think?
some critics believe that pro-anorexias have made it into a religion, having its own 10 commandments:
1. If you aren’t thin you aren’t attractive.
2. Being thin is more important than being healthy.
3. You must buy clothes, cut your hair, take laxatives, starve yourself, do anything to make yourself look thinner.
4. Thou shall not eat without feeling guilty.
5. Thou shall not eat fattening food without punishing oneself afterwards.
6. Thou shall count calories and restrict intake accordingly.
7. What the scale says is the most important thing.
8. Losing weight is good/gaining weight is bad.
9. You can never be too thin.
10. Being thin and not eating are signs of true will power and success.

There is something about Air Asia…
Although Tony Fernandes (CEO of Air Asia) did a great job building a no-frills airline, with all due respect, I hate Air Asia. My experience with Air Asia has been bad. Of all the times I took Air Asia, 99% of their flights were delayed.
Air Asia – Always Late
And now, someone just posted this hilarious picture. [taken from blogsmalaysia.com]
Original post: http://robinwong.blogspot.com/2006/04/air-asia.html
LOL!!! It’s a picture of an Air Asia stewardess sleeping in a plane!
Well, the authenticity of this picture has not been confirmed. It could be from other airlines. However, an Asian wearing a red uniform somehow points that she’s an Air Asia stewardess. But then again, I remember vaguely that Lauda Air stewardesses wear red uniform as well. Nevertheless, the idea that the stewardess in the picture is from Air Asia cracks me up!

malaysian CLEO’s most eligible bachelor 2006 is on!
bachelor #51’s interview not published:

what were you teased about as a child?
my big ‘peter’. and i was only 8.
what scares you?
that special girl stops ironing my underwear and spraying perfume on it. *sad face*

a wife-beater is …
macho as hell, i support! women submit, men dominate!
i’m currently listening to …
Celine Dion’s ‘My Heart Will Go On’ on repeat. it makes me cry.
[wtf …… ?]
i’ll probably karate kick the fella should i see him!
sooooooooooooooooooo …. who did you vote for, or planning to vote for? every year CLEO magazine has the Most Eligible Bachelor contest and girls (and boys, too) get the chance to drool over their pictures in the magazine and dream our dreams, involving them. ;P
most “bachelors” are always either attached or not into women. sad. “bachelors” eh? meaning unmarried men, i guess. no fun!!!!!! imagine winning a date with one of the bachelors, and he ffk (“stands you up”) because his girlfriend/boyfriend/partner threatened to trail along like a demented groupie, crying, “*sobs* you useless bastard … you’re not eligible! you’re mine, ALL MINE! i’ll bring you to my grave, if i have to!!”
i’d just forfeit the date, if i win it. scared.
i got bored flicking through the magazine – nothing held my attention long enough. and only when i was bored again, a few days later, did i get back to scrutinising the fellas properly. some are really cute looking (yummy…), but the clothes they were given to wear for the shoot were not really my taste. ;P and the questions are not enough. and no stats, too? height please!! ;P
and there’s always a candidate who’s a lawyer. why don’t we nominate xes, fank, rych and honfaai next year? ;D good idea? then we can all be (paid) cheerleaders. ;P
anyway, check this out:
Manhunt International 2006
*drools* i like Bolivia and and China South.
Shaven Ice (ABC) with Gula Melaka @ Jonker Street, Melaka
After reading Jasmine’s blog, I hunted for the Gula Melaka topped ice kacang (shaven ice) at Jonker Street. According to Jasmine, the place that serves the said dessert is somewhere nearby Explorer cafe.
We found the café easily 😀 It’s on the main road of Jonker.
Swedish Daniel enjoying a Malaysian delicacy 😀
We have choice of a mixture of cendol and kidney beans or corn and kidney beans. I hate kidney beans.
The abc was EXCELLENT. The Gula Melaka was no ordinary Gula Melaka. It was melted Gula Melaka with gluey texture. Orgasmic I tell you.
The café also has a small Maritime museum with many treasures salvaged from the sea. I particularly like the old coins that were salvaged from sunken ships. They even have a 6th century coin (shaped like a knife) on display!
Great Ambiance 😀
Jogoya Restaurant, Starhill, Kuala Lumpur
because i enjoy japanese buffets, because everyone was raving about it, i finally tried out the up and happening taiwanese eatery called Jogoya at Starhill, KL the other day. the price is pretty steep, ranging from RM68++ to RM88++, depending on what time you go.
we were asked to first pay for our entrance which we thought was a bit funny. usually buffet restaurants tend to threaten customers with food wastage penalty, right? i don’t think they do it here, but correct me if i’m wrong. ;P
there was food at every nook and corner of the restaurant! that little clip there? it’s your table number and for food to be cooked, be it tempura or teppanyaki or soup, you drop the clip into the bowl at the display console and the cook will prepare the dish of your choice and it will be delivered to your table. you don’t have to stand around and wait. 😉
The Supernaturals – Do they exist?
Weeks back, one of our employees was ‘possessed’ by a ghost. She ran into a wall, cracking it and then rolled on the floor. It took few guys to subdue her. While she’s doing all that, she was screaming “KELUAR! KELUAR! KELUAR!”. I heard that the ghost possessed a secretary before jumping into her.
She also injured few secretaries as well. Apparently I heard that she grabbed one secretary and threw her on to the wall.
But after reading some Al-Quran verses to her, she eventually calmed down and went back to normal. And surprisingly, she was aware of the things she did. She said she couldn’t control herself.
Supernatural or psychological?
Last week, when I was in my hotel room in Penang, my friend A suddenly sent me a text me telling me that my hotel is not haunted. I thought he was just trying to scare me but his text has a story behind it.
Whenever we have a matter in Penang Court, my firm will provide us a particular hotel which is nearby the Court. Of course, I shall withhold the name.
A was sleeping at one of the rooms in the hotel. Suddenly, he woke up and the room went cold although he did not turn the aircon on. He proceeded to the toilet to do his business and as soon as he walked out from the toilet, the toilet door slammed hard. Things started to get eerie.
He then turned the TV on to find that every channels did not work. Suddenly, the room lights went crazy, it was blinking non stop. He quickly exited the room and made his way to the lift.
The corridor was empty, there was no trays or even door signs hanging on the doors.
A door creaks open. There was no light coming out from the gap between the floor and the door.
Fortunately, before anything could happen, A managed to catch the lift.
That was not the end of it.
On another occasion, X, A’s friend was the victim. It was on the same floor as well.
X was about to go to sleep. Suddenly it went dark. He heard someone scratching the window..long eerie sound.
Suddenly, the TV went on, the bathroom lights were on as well. The TV screen was pitch black though. Just as he was staring at the tv screen, he saw a reflection of a white figure perching on the side of his bed. A hooded old woman was seen perching like spiderman.
X turned to the side of the bed. There was nobody.
X immediately jumped out from his bed. The lights went crazy and the toilet door kept on opening and shutting. He quickly ran out from his room and was greeted by a bell boy.
X iterated his story to the bell boy. The bell boy, acknowledging what has happened, told X that nobody lives in the room most of the time.
Now.. look behind you 😀
