Instant noodles.

You can get them branded or your childhood past-time favourite
You can get them in all kinds of screaming fancy plastic packaging you can find and feel
You can get them lined up on the shelves in hypermarkets, 24/7 convenience stores, sundry shops;
But if you can’t find them anywhere else,
You can bet that wherever the eggs will be, there’s always instant noodles.
And one thing’s for sure,
They always let you know that they’re readily available.

Copy-pasted from my facebook notes. I’d actually like the fact that this sounded like what would describe a naive, amateurish poet who couldn’t think of anything better and shallow to write about and yet I think the otherwise. 🙂

lor yau.

This entry was written almost a year ago, but I wonder why I didn’t post it until now…

Went for New Year visiting at mom’s friend’s place. We brought over some oranges and snacks. Aunt M insist on offering us something in return to bring home. She walked about her kitchen and spotted some Ipoh-mali pomelos in the corner when she uttered this (sorry but you need to understand Cantonese in order to make sense of this entry):

Aunt M: Come, come, lei oi meh yeh? [come, come, what would you like to have?]

Mom: Ohh, mm sai kham hak hei lah… heheh [oh, that’s all right… heheh]

Aunt M: Oi lor yau mou? […]

Mom: …

Mom heard it. I heard the same thing as well, I swear to God I did! It happened in a split second fast you could barely had the time to come up with some appropriate response, but mom was quick to save her friend from embarrassment by laughing it off like it was a joke. Joke gone bad I presumed.

Mom: Ohh! luk yau hai mai… hahahahaaa *fake laugh 1*
Aunt M: Hahahahaaa… yes, yes, luk yau… hahahaaa *fake laugh 2*

Lor yau means ass, literally. Luk yau is of course the culprit pomelo.

Randomness.

Just thought it was funny to frame Buddy in a ‘tight’ situation and imagine her annoyed instead of squeaking for help. Muahahah.

Me and LD had Taiwanese sort of cuisine @ The Garden’s Fong Lye for dinner sometime last week with friends. Set meals like above comes with a platter of three appetizers, a bowl of rice with minced pork and a small bowl of soup-of-the-day. Love the neat oriental design on plate and bowl as well. Day-dreamer mui, you should go for it soon. Nyek, nyek 😛

Prefer noodles instead? Then you may have what LD had that evening, Taiwanese minced meat sauce noodles. Generous serving of minced pork and sliced cucumbers and chopped spring onions yummm… Umm, not inclusive of what you saw in the spoon as it was ‘scooped’ from another set menu just as tantalizing to our taste buds… (we girls liked to pass some of our foods around)

This! Fried Fish Fillet with Tomato and Fried Egg. Chef’s recommendation and a must-have for first timers. (pic taken from here)

Enough on food. Final randomness of it all, finally got my tickets to Toyota Classics!

It’s for charity so yeah, nice. 🙂

Been a while since I’ve been to movies 😦 Technically, cinema is just a stone’s throw away from where I worked, but I couldn’t find the time to drop by. The last movie was about Vin Diesel becoming a father of twins and I hated the plot. A lot. Kyels know better that I did heheh.

Work has taken away most of my weekends on hostage *sob sob* though I still manage to sneak out for a breather; doing window shopping and stuff, only to realize that my mind is still on working mode! Because wherever I went, be it driving or walking or eating, I kept digesting all the words and signs along the way and thinking how it could improve my writing skills. Is this what they call an auto-pilot mode? The only way I could ‘switch’ it off is when I’m surfing the net, blogging about some randomness, and when I’m asleep.

But this is all part of the present that makes the future I want to be in so… gotta love the process to enjoy the ride.

Lately, I dig this song The Man who can’t be moved by The Script. [Click to listen]

September, my favourite month of all months, is coming to an end.

Stupefy!

We all know how restless this little rodent can be in nature. Tried a couple of times and none of the pictures we’ve taken so far turned out decent. Some weeks ago, LD took this shots of Little Buddy in my hand, and all the sudden he went all quiet and still. He was practically ‘stupefied’ for a good 2 minutes or so before scurrying off from my grip again.

Picture may say a thousand words, but I wasn’t attempting to choke Little Buddy at that point. I repeat, not.
