Later we were home watching the TV with Esther and there was this cool Taiwanese show on. It's called Treasure Hunt where these ppl go around looking for good food and other things to see on the show. At one part they were holding this sign with chinese words on it up and my dad quickly turned to Esther and said "What does it say? What does it say?" And Esther was scanning the screen with her panicky eyes while my add continues to say "Angry one ah I send you to school cannot read." Esther was panicking and exclaming "It's in old Chinese, olden Chinese!" HAhahaha my dad and I couldn't stop laughing.
We went to buy Cassidy's stuff like a crate (which I'm not planning to use), and more biscuits and other stuff and when we're at the counter he did his famous 'pretending to walk away while they are ringing up the purchases' except this time he really walked out for a whole minute while Joyce and I yanked out our wallets in a frenzy counting our money and then he walks back in with his wallet in hand chuckling to himself and making a "haha" face at the cashier.
I wonder if I get my sense of humor from him. I hope so!

Hehe Mr.Tyler, Cassie found the monkey. Almost chewed it to bits. It's okay I saved him from her wrath! She can be quite fierce!
Ham bought a Siberian Husky pup today o.O We collect her in a week. She's 6 weeks old too early to be taken away from her mom. Man we are gonna have our hands and feet full.
"So alcooo." I hear it all the time. It's like, the more you drink, the trendier you are. And the funniest thing is when people proclaim (so-called la oh its so bad for me la but actually.. they are so proud to say) that they themselves are alcoholic. They even sell it like its a brand. It's part of their hip hip image. Years ago depression was probably the hip trend and now it's alcoholism.
Lately I've seen what being an alcoholic is, and how empty that person's life can be when he drowns himself in any form of liquor day after day, night after night. There's nothing glamorous about it, there's nothing to be proud of. In fact he knows my disapproving eyes are on him and when his skin fades to red I can't help but feel slightly disgusted. He knows, he masks it, he gives excuses. When someone drinks at an alarming rate daily, he knows it's something he should be ashamed of and he is. The sweets and gum he keeps in his pockets has ulterior motives. His family tries not to mention it or to act like it bothers them but organs are failing and we all know the cause.
Is there anyone who thinks this fella is hip? Now you are thinking "well this guy went overboard, he doesn't know his limit." But thats how sooo many wants to sound like, I hear and read it all the time, "My liver so gonna fail lor." Wow man, really its no joke.
So..it really is stupid to me, to hear people throwing the term around so carelessly. Maybe it's just friendly banter. But there are people who build their image around it and thats all it is, an image. Sure you can hold your liquor and you like the taste of it, but that doesn't make you an alcoholic so don't label yourself so smugly. Really, they talk about it as if its something sad and that they can't help but they are proud of it! They honestly think it makes them hip.
Now if it was someone super hooked onto drugs, would they say "I'm so addicted laa I can take up to how much how much. I'm such a drug addict la *laughs demurely*". No because people who do it knows what its about and knows its not something that should be taken lightly like that.
Alcohol is not all that different. The only difference is that its legal.

I'm torn between naming her Cassidy (Cassie for short) and Bo. I also came up with Stevie. The guys are happily calling her Carpet cause she likes to lie flat on the floor. Ham actually wants to give her a chinese name but neither one of is is particularly fluent in Chinese so how to name. We almost went with Xiao Wei but I thought against it.
I wish I have a better camera to take better pictures. I never liked poodles. But this toy poodle is irrisistable!!! She looks big in the pictures but she's actually quite small and SHE'S MINE!!
I LOVE LOVE LVOE LVEO LVE LOVE LOVE!!!!!

London was an unexpectedly good movie! Children of Men was pretty decent too except the ending a bit potong. Seems nowadays all movies end too quickly for me, I'm always expecting another big bang. I finally got to watch Factory Girl and I really liked it! Also, I watched The Aviator for the 4th time. I don't like Leonardo Dicaprio but he seems to get the good parts. I am bored. I can't wait for The Simpsons movie. My dad is looking forward to the Transfomers movie although he won't admit it.
Oh the other day I passed a restaurant and its called, Sheesh Mahal! HAHAHahahah damn funny lor.

Now I normally wouldn't have thought of going to Thai Club. I know how many (including myself before) cringes at the thought of going to places like Beach Club, Thai Club, Aloha. Even before we've stepped into the place.
Anyway on Tuesday we had dinner in Thai Club while waiting for Yaty to get off work. We were sitting outside at the back so I couldn't really see but there was this stage inside and the hostess who was a transvestite was reallly entertaining. He could sing too! At first we were a little apprehensive with the atmosphere, it felt kinda foreign but the night turned out really fun!
After the dance performance the DJ suddenly said "You know our bartendress Crystal, she's really short. If there's anyone in this club shorter than her, I'd give you a jug of beer. But I doubt there is."
I perked up. Then kept my mouth shut but it was too late. Yaty looked at me and said "Stel! Oh my god I'm gonna call Crystal over."
She came over and yes, I was half an inch shorter than her apparently. So Ham dragged me up to the DJ because him and Hafiz so badly needed another jug to share after their 2nd one. When Yaty flagged the DJ down and pointed in the direction of a sheepish me and a happy Crystal (because there's actually another girl shorter than she is) and the DJ said "SHIT! You are shorter than her! Is that your boyfriend?" I nodded ni Ham's direction and he continued to ask Ham "You're so tall and she's so short? How do you guys kiss?!" Ham leaned over and gave me a peck on the cheek and we got that jug of beer!
I think its damn cool lor.
The four of us went home happy. Then other guys came with a bottle of Martell and 2 red wines and the five of them finished it clean.
Does anyone else drink whiskey with warm water? Because Ham drinks it like that at home and apparently its better for you. It doesn't give you a headache.
Ok! Back to MSN Uno. Pek San and I keep getting beat and its time to fight back!
My almost everyday lunch. Tulip's Spicy Luncheon Meat. It's not really enough unless you have half a can. On its own.
My beat up toenail :D It's gone now. I picked at it till it bled so I sort of stopped.

I think I came off sounding a bit rude, sorry Jung! Hehe but its reflex. My goodness they are coming to Malaysia? Even more of an affirmation that pop bands are taking over the world. Who in the world dared to say that Good Charlotte was punk? Or Pop Punk even. You can't dress punk and look punk, only music and lifestyle is. Sure some of these shit bands are musically inclined, but anyone can be. It's being real that counts in music. Music isn't just rhythm and lyrics. It's beliefs, actions and just being very true to yourself.
It was about 5 years ago when I felt very proud to be Malaysian. It was when I first heard Gerhana Ska Cinta. Such insane potential.
Real life was stumped when the 90s came by. We are all just making do.
Oh and I also hate any toilets, sitting or squatting, that has water splashing onto your feet when you flush. Because everytime I use a public restroom, I have to prepare to run for cover before I flush. So it's my feet as close to the door as possible and my arm stretched as far as I could to flush the damn toilet. And even if make a run for it I sometimes still get it on me. I HATE IT! It's like shitty bands, you just can't avoid it. It's nothing wrong to make music but its everything wrong when you claim yours to be something it isn't. Why are you trying to dupe yourself and insult the the bands who really are something.
Actually, it could be a whole new genre. Wannabe Pop or Wannabe Rock, maybe just Wannabe. Well then there are some good wannabe pop bands.

Esther got this really cool laughing Elmo. It's damn retarded. It keeps laughing and moving about changing laughing poses. Sometimes it even sounds like you're torturing it!

ANYWAY, if you look closely at the picture below, you can spot my dad's new pet! I named him Jimbo. Jimbo the Lizard.
That's all the food that Esther, the small one on the left, Joyce, Daddy and I finished. Actually Esther had half a bowl, Joyce had one and my dad and I polished off the rest.
Jimmy and meeeee. I don't know why my arm looks so extremely fat here. But anyway, the subject of this photo isn't me, but Jimmy. That's actually him posing, I hope.

Can you see how huge it is? I touched it and its all thick and rubbery. It's not a ball either, its a helium balloon. Feck! I want! I snapped pictures of it throughout the day. 1 in the morning, 2 in the afternoon and so on.
Look at the size of it! I was so tempted to ask the Art Department if they could blow up a few more for me to take home.
Good thing I didn't. The boy got stuck in the revolving gate thingy at the exit. HAHAHAHAHA I couldn't stop laughing.
Somesh helped the guy out by pushing the balloon out through the top. I mean cause otherwise the gate would be stuck for a while and there were a lot more people waiting to get out behind us. So there it is, the coveted balloon.
I tried desperately to MMS these pictures to Raychel. But she didn't get them so I had to put it up :D
