Lucky Bet

Sunday was a splendid weekend. I was quite reluctant to attend the wedding reception that day but because I was hungry (even now), I think I should go and just hit the buffet! Heh! The meal was alright but I didn't try the black pepper prawn because I was wearing white and I'm afraid that I might just dirty my shirt instead. The idea of peeling it using my hand is a no go.

There was Fisya and Naz to accompany my boredom throughout the event.. Not to say  the event was boring because there was karaoke which I thought I wanna sing but I have no voice that day. You simpl have to go through my agent to make me sing! There was a moment in time my brother commented I could sing better than some of the singers up there. How elated I was...

After which, SIN to have a drink with my relatives. Well, it did not go as planned, we ended up with rojak in front of us! So much for "I'm already full!" I don't eat rojak though. Not a fan of it. After which we walked around for an eyewash of stewardess and pilots while our parents catch up with each other after ages of missing in action and we cousins wandered around. This week I've been to SIN Terminal 3 for like three times almost consecutively

Next Sunday we'll be probably be go for ice-skating. But we're totally clueless where and how much. I want to ice-skate so badly! I just hope we could go to the same school!

Today is so called a lucky day. If I were to really bet with three people today, I'd be a tad richer by then. We were at the Terminal 2 (T2) and Fisyaz argued that Popeye's is at T2 and I really insisted that it was not there and she was so eager in proving that I was wrong , then I said "Fine, then wanna bet?" and she went, "Fine! We'll see first!" Turns out that she was totally wrong. "See, I've told you that it's in Terminal 1 (T1), I've been here like a few days ago?" She was speechless. Hah!

Okay , that was two, because she teamed up with Aisyah. Then came Syaz when I watched AJL08 on television and I texted him "I don't think this time Siti can win anything, there are other performances better than hers." Syaz denied. "Fine.." I said to myself, "We'll see!" It turns out to be true! Siti really did not win anything at that competition. See, if I were to really bet $10 dollars each, I'd be $30 richer today!

On a random note, I don't know why some people take my words too hard. You know how I work and it's just a figurative speech that you are hurt too.

Temasek Open House 2008

Temasek's Open House was fun and it was quite a hit for me, I guess? Ouh well. My cousin was super late. He was late by 45 minutes and it's enough time for me to go back and shower and then play the computer and go out but no, I didn't. I kept calling his cell, he didn't pick up. In the end, I resort to calling his house. The thing is, I had to call my mother to get his house number. See, what kind of cousin am I. Haaha. Finally,  we met and then we headed to Tamp Interchange to meet Tim. Obviously, Tim was way earlier than me and way far earlier than my cousin.
Anyway, when we reached TP, I was totally lost, not knowing where to go. Like I said to the two of them, my school don't really bring us to Poly's and JC's. They were like asking me which school to go first. I said to them that I don't care so long as we get something and not go home empty handed. I went to the booth and got them a goodie bag. While walking somebody stopped and with one of her fingers on her lips and I was like "Who the hell is she? Can't she see or what?" Of course, I'm totally annoyed but then suddenly I realized that it was my primary schoolmate! I was like "Oh my God, long time no see!" But oh well, time doesn't allow us to chat, but it was so great to meet her after so long!

We decided to enter into one of the auditorium. And tell you what, here's the juicy part of this entry. Not really actually. I mean we were walking and the was a straight row of auditoriums. One of them has ended their show/presentation and we can't be bothered to wait. So we went to the other one because it had just started. But before that, we saw this drag queen walking down the corridor asking people to go in and all but I was totally unaware what is she talking about. After some time, when we made a u-turn into that auditorium because the time slot says the next presentation was exactly the time on my watch. So we just went in and saw that drag queen telling us to enter from the other entrance - it was so funny!

We entered from the back and realized that it was just an act! He was so funny and the audience were all well entertained I guess. OMG, seriously, you people should have gone there and have a look as there was this character named Shakuntala G, and she was superb. On the picture below, she was on the far right. I mean that drag queen and Shakuntala G was like quarreling with an accent and all. That act really made my day. Anyway, after the show, Azhar wanted to take photographs with Shakuntala G and all. well, even I wanted to. Wish granted I guess? Natasha (Tariq's sister) was so surprised and excited when she saw me.

After that we went to redeem the free shirt where you have to design yourself and all and at the booth I saw my cousin Naz. She was so excited that she ran into me and hugged me as well. Of course she's not the only one excited! wWe rarely see each other when term starts. Better yet, it's unplanned.

We went to Simei to have a quick dinner and Az and Tim had been so nice to go eat with me and escorted me up to class. I really appreciate it, very much indeed! And oh yes, that pineapple cheesecake doesn't taste like pineapple please! I am so going to miss the course I've went because today was the last day of the course! Sigh! Well, moving on, I do have some of my mates contacts. If there's any open house of mine or any parties, I will definitely invite you people. So I guess, in summary, what really made my day was the act acted by Natasha, that Shakuntala G and the rest of the acting crew and Az and Tim and the course I went. Not to forget the people I saw like Faayzah and Nazurah and some other people! Cheers!

Photos: A Day in Johor

Last weekend's one day trip was absolutely fun. Of course, time and again, I woke up late while others had woken up. Thank God I've packed the day before. Anyway, then we went out and Syaz was quite late. Oh well, you know what I'm gonna say: "Stuff happens". It's a night stay at Johor with some shopping trips...

We went for dinner at Damai Restaurant , somewhere secluded must I say but rather peaceful, then we went back to the hotel and went to their pub or whatever they call it where there are people singing while you can either drink and play pool and you can even request songs. We requested some songs but they didn't even sing one of them! It's alright, because we're too updated and they don't have the songs we wanted. Maybe next year... I shan't say much. Enjoy the pictures...

Day Out With 4 Friends

I woke up so early this morning, say around 10am and got ready to go for cycling. My bike is in the state of dying, one side pedal detached, the locks are rusty, and it's sort of dirty. Come to think again, I want to keep that bike and not sell it away.

Anyway, Tim waited for me at the void deck and he cycled from Tampines to my place! So far and he managed to do it, bravo! Well, but you can't deny I can ride faster and longer than you! Muahaha, just kidding. I rented a bike for myself for two hours. The old man said "Ah, lu punya time pukul 12.18pm sampai pukul 2.18pm hor" which means "Your time starts 12.18pm to 2.30PM". I said ok and went off. Then we rounded Pasir Ris Park and one and a half way through, Changi Village is "calling us". By the time it was already 12.40pm and we were quite lost in finding the shortcut from Pasir Ris Park to Changi and we wasted those bloody time on that instead of going the long way! Oh well, it happens. So by the time we reached Changi, it was 1pm plus, then we ate until 1.45pm. We were late of course but I am totally aware of it, I adjusted my watch to 15 minutes late and made up lame reasons just in case the old man ask why am I late. From Changi, I rushed all the way to Pasir Ris Park in 20 minutes! How superb, by then, Tim was all the way back. Ok, you might think I ride recklessly, beating the traffic light and all but hell no! Safety comes first. When I met Tim at Downtown East, he was like panting and he said he was about to vomit! You uh, you still got the nerve to feel sick while you cycle 1/8 times the speed of me? Kidding! Then we go to White Sands to meet Khai and Syaz for they were waiting for our grand entrance, so called. Well, we did arrive on time right?

Anyway, meeting Syaz and Khai was super fun and Tim was starting to laugh all the way and everybody was looking at us as though wanting to join our conversation. We were talking about those lame people around the world (no names mentioned here!) and we were talking about how slow am I to realize that Bhutto is dead and that she's a female! Hope no offence taken here. Then we headed to the library, because Khai wanted to! Tim was like super tired while I was complaining about the killing smell that reaches my nostril and Syaz was like yaking-yaking all the way while Khai was laughing, making her own abs.

On the way up, I saw my school principal and Mr Sam and they were like "Hi, not working?" and I said "Nope." Aww, I'm glad you people remembered me... Ouh well, I just can't help it if I'm popular! Okay, kidding much!

Khai was super loud in the library with Syaz and when I asked them to lower down their volume, they insisted on talking as though they were kilometers apart. So I ended up "joining" them and at last, they manage to talk softly. Khai was showing me some books from Norah Roberts and then I went to search for Danielle Steel's and she was like asking "Is he a male or female?" and I said "Female, duh. See, here's the picture (hand was flipping to the last page of the book)" Then she replied, "Ouh, this is it right? (Showing Danielle Steels picture with that bareback debutant gown)" We totally cracked into laughter because she was so confident that Steel is a male!

Then she bumped into this sexual book and it's written in Bahasa Indonesia and we were laughing at how the author was trying to translate things like "the parnter" into "patnernya" instead of "pasangannya" and they even have terms like "lesbianisme" and I was like "What crap is that?" and they even come out with things like Filem Biru which sounded so weird! It's like we were sitting in a row, from my left Khai, them me, then Tim then Syaz and we were reading so the different stuffs! Khai was reading about that bloody dirty book while I was busy flipping Danielle Steels, Tim was totally into the history book and Syaz having a mag marathon with all the magazines he can take.

In the library, somebody called my name "Zul!" and I turned. "You remember me or not?" He said, and I said, "Errrrr, no, who are you uh?" He replied (he's with his cap all the way!) "What the hell Zul, you can't remember me?" and in my mind, "Is he like the secondary 5 guy who asked me for somebody's email or something?" Then I remembered him but what is his bloody name, until now I have no Idea. Ouh yea, there was a girl who tapped me after countdown with her boyfriend or something and she said "Hi!" and I was like "Hi!" (with all the smile and thousands of questions behind it). Well, if you read this, please remind me again who you are. And in future, if I happen not to remember you, please don't feel offended or whatsoever. Instead, please remind me and don't leave me clueless!

Anyway, Khai was complaining about her group leader about this and that and I said "Well, if only I was there I'd go like move it, coming through!" Haaha. Alright, we must go to the same college please! I can't afford to be separated from you people! Ouh yes, I hope even my cousin Farisya would go to the same college too!
