back to KL

Posted on: March 31, 2007

so i’m packing now, checking and double checking if i forget to bring anything for a month long trip to KL…again. it’s been a swell week being back in Kuching. i got to enjoy home cooking, met up with college friends, visited Hartz (yuck!) after having not step foot in there for years. oh, and i just came back from a nice quiet family dinner at Hai Pa Wang, Jalan Padungan celebrating my mom’s birthday, which is tommorrow actually. think i settled more or less the things i need to settle here. also managed to watch 5 or so movies on DVD which i bought when i came back last week. yup, i guess i’m all set.

KL seems like a second home to me right now. i kinda am enjoying myself at the moment. going back and forth like this makes my work and life generally more interesting.

gotta remind myself to buy a new graphic card for my busted desktop PC at LowYat when i come back again to Kuching. i spent rm7k on my rig and it goes and dies on me in one year. how frustrating. anyway, i’m thinking my next big hardware aquisition would have to be a small, light-weight and sleek looking notebook, preferably from Dell. that means purchasing online.


Woogie Bear on my bed

my grandma saw me playing with Woogie Bear and commented that i should settle down soon and beget myself a son or daughter instead. i know she secretly just want to hold a baby in her arms again. oh, the pressure. but i’m used to her jabberings and always have an appropriate comeback up my sleeves. i acknowledge her need and ask her to find one for me instead. i’m not picky, some old but rich gal would do i informed her. and this led to major laughter on her part and our conversation would lead to the pros and cons to my specifications. of course, the outcome favours me and she decides to leave me alone. heh.

anyway, here i am – luggage half packed, one pair of shorts still pending (being dried outside), needing a shower, typing this blog entry and feeling a bit thirsty. i think i’ll miss my 2.1 Edifier speakers the most when i’m in KL. they have given me constant joy when i’m blaring my favourite music on a nice comfy day. too bad i can’t bring them along… i’m also gonna miss my “ha kao” breakfast. i wonder if i can find them in KL?

oh i had “lui cha” for lunch today. the one at Jalan Intan. the best lui cha in Kuching in my opinion. been ages since i last took it. still taste as good. you know it’s funny, everytime i taste good food, i would contemplate on how to go about making it myself and coming out with an express way to package it efficiently to sell. everytime i try something good, i would think of the possibilities of setting up my own stall, cafe, restaurant and try my hand in making a fortune from it. typical Chinese thinking eh? one can dream… but one day, just maybe…

you know there is a night market happening everyday in KL? only at different locations. we only have Sunday Market here in Kuching. i’ve been told most if not all the stalls operating there is without licence. DBKL would check up on them and will be treated to kopi-o. i guess that’s the norm. but there is this couple in their mid-fourties who operates from a van, selling desserts at rm3 per cup. i hear the husband drives an Estima courtesy from the major profits he makes from his little business. makes you wonder what your doing sitting in the office working your ass off doesn’t it? incidently, desserts like mango ais (chipped ice with slices of mango) is known as mango lolo in KL. lolo? that’s a very alien word to me. i wonder how it came about.

okay, best i get back to packing. my flight is tommorrow, lunch time. cheerio!

so DiGi is promoting their fu-yOh! plan quite heavily at Tun Jugah today. and guess what? i caved in and finally, after 5 or so years decided to change my call plan.

thanks to friends and family, call charges is at 15 cent per minute, 1 cent per sms and 10 cent for mms! which is a good thing as i’ve been heavily sending mms this past month. without the fnf feature it’s 38 cent per minute, 7 cent per sms and 25 cent per mms to any network.

every sunday i can talk for 12 hours straight and get charged for less than rm1.20 only. and on monday, wednesday and saturday….mms, xms and bubble talk is F-R-E-E! on their respective days. well i never ever used xms or bubble talk, but it’s good to know it’s there if i ever do want to experiment with it.

and of course with the usual reload bonus, birthday bonus and occasional free tickets to events and movies, DiGi is really top notch in making me stay loyal to them. even though in the back of my head i keep thinking Maxis HotLink being the best, but i’m gonna stay true to DiGi…at least till they fuck me up or something.

so how did i change my plan? i dialed *128#, chose option 7, then 2 to change plan and finally decide on which plan i want. fu-yOh!


Snape killed Dumbledore!!!

lol, i just came upon this page reviewing the movie 300 and had a big jolly long laugh. if you haven’t yet watch the movie, shame on you.

i opened my msn this morning and notice a very attractive advertisment which goaded me to point and click it. gotta check out what it’s all about.


fu-yOh! unleash the thumb!

it launched me to a DiGi website promoting their new prepaid offerings. fu-yOh! 7 cent per sms to any network. fu-yOh! free talk-time every sunday 12am to 12pm! cool! cool! now to decide should i change my current plan or not. hmm…


the guy promoter is eye-catchingly funny

i was at Kuching’s Normah hospital today attending a meeting. half way through i got the urge to visit the gents. i quietly left the room and made my way to the nearest toilet. unfortunately i had a difficult time locating one.

i thought i was home free when i saw the sign pointing me the way. but there must’ve been a mistake as it pointed me to a corridor with two washroom not in my classification.

the first was for handicapped males. gosh knows i don’t want to come face to face, uhh…come across some headless guy.

the second was clearly meant for handicapped females. no way i’m going into a female washroom, leg or no leg.

however, my bladder got the better of me…and bravely i ventured back to the male handicap one. i made it mine temporarily and went in and did my business. muhahaha…

hey, when you got to go…you got to go, right?

Wife & Gf

Posted on: March 27, 2007

got this in my inbox yesterday.

Wife is like a TV. Girlfriend is like handphone.
At home watch TV. Go out bring h/p.
No money sell TV. Got money change h/p.
Sometimes enjoy TV but most of the time play with h/p.
TV free for life but….
h/p, if you don’t pay, services will be terminated….!

hrrmm…

Fann Wong is hot hot hot! i remembered her from Shanghai Knights with Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson. in this movie, Just Follow Law, she plays her part really well, pretending to be a male.


what can i say? Jack Neo films rock. they never fail to bring me to tears, tears of laughter. watching his movies always make me feel like i’m in Singapore. althought his films has gradually evolved, from mucho Singlish to more English, it’s still packed with funny moments and downright hilarious wordplay.

need i say somemore?
