The morning after a public holiday

Friday, March 21, 2008

Early 8am - bolt up in bed. Overslept. Blame imaginary friend, Poodles.

8:15am - hop downstairs, barely missing last step and nearly falling on face only to listen to neighbour's dog bark/yelp/whine away. Refrain from going out and throwing shoe across fence.

8:25am - breakfast cereal takes more effort to eat than it did to wake up.

8:30am - out the door to work. Glare at neighbour's dog. Suddenly remember why the preference to cats.

Between 8:30am and 9am - some car decides to break down. Delays trip to work. Twiddle thumbs waiting for traffic to clear. Grimace at Maxis' terrible promo ad which is blatant rip off of Ikea's previous sale ad.

Teeny bit past 9am - strut into the office... realize no one's around T_T Now wondering if everyone took the day off.

Drinking problem

Friday, March 14, 2008

You know you probably just might have a drinking problem when the first ad from Google Adsense that shows on your page is one that tells you to quit drinking *sigh*:

Google laying down the facts

Today's public service announcement: be kind to your liver.

Drink and be merry!

Sunday, March 09, 2008

Despite the parental warnings to stay indoors, we "celebrated" election night by doing round three of the beer binge:

Pho for dinner--we need something to absorb the alcohol right?

And more people arriving:

Cina and a sexy shot of Pau still apparently hungover :p Because my camera has no anti-shake, kudos for Pau who held that face for a good seven seconds or so lol

Chew-ing them out

Friday, March 07, 2008

nekomatta.com is a politically neutral blog.

But in the festive (and semi-feminist) mood of elections and International Women's Day, I'd like to dedicate a fuck-you-/facepalm to the two most useless female reps in BN: Carol Chew and Chew Mei Fun.

I'm only bringing this up because I'm quite annoyed--women like them set us all DISGRACEFULLY back a few hundred years. One's a vicious cow of a cunt act, the other a mindless recorder devoid of any intelligence and self-opinion. Fantastic.

Also, I'm a tree-hugging hippie and I'm hating this round of elections because it breeds pollution.

The vast amount of dirty posters hanging about which will undoubtedly NOT be removed once campaigning is over is quite the bloody eyesore. Oh... not to mention the flags that are precariously stabbed into cracks in pillars by the highway (i.e. the LDP) threatening to block out any sunlight (you know, the dark color and all). That just screams accident waiting to happen: that flag is going to fall one day.

Happy voting tomorrow Malaysians! :)

Two minutes too late

Thursday, March 06, 2008

I'd Twitter this but it shot over 140 characters and I can't be arsed to trim the fat:

I hate people who wait for others to make a decision only for them to disagree with the decision right off the bat because it ends up being inconvenient to them :)

It is not rocket science: if you are FULLY AWARE beforehand that you have certain limitations, and if you don't speak up, it only leads to the general postulation that you'll be fine with whatever gets suggested.

Please don't be the dickwheel who cries afterwards :)

WoW.geekout.upto(70)

Wednesday, March 05, 2008

And yes, that title is me attempting to be hip with Rails. That and reading Why's book has left me in a sordid state of bat shit mental confusion.

I am quite amazed (by amazed I really mean creeped out) at how freakishly animated I get when I talk about my mage/priest/druid. I spent one hour talking to KS about how overpowered his rogue is ahem, should he come back to play that is, and that I run off screaming like a little girl when I see one on my mage. It's sickening how I am able to moan about how overpowered the twin blades of Illidan are when I've yet to actually set foot into Black Temple.
The only time I actually see them is when I'm in the arenas getting a new one torn by Undead Rogue #8712347 who just HAPPENS to be in full tier 6 gear and just HAPPENS to be in the lowbie bracket.

I'm not crying. I'm not crying.

Excuse me while I go beat on every stun spell/talent/proc with a splintered bat before setting it on fire.

Binging for Sunburst

Monday, March 03, 2008

Goodbye February, hello March!

And here are the yummy pictures from last month to yesterday night where we had day two of the Turborg binge in our continuous effort to make our way to the Sunburt KL International Music festival... with loads of "free" beer.

We learnt our lesson the first time: NOTHING is open in KL if you go too early *cough* so "breakfast" was actually lunch at about 12ish at JW Marriott. Yees you lied! Where were the superlicious egg tarts? When Dom asked if they had any, the server looked at him like he grew a third eye... and replied back caustically as if the peasant dish of an egg tart was not to be spoken off in such place of obscenely overpriced resplendence.

Of course we had to try this:

First 15 minutes was all laughter and squealing (from Dom as well)... so much so the woman next to me thought I was high from getting my toes sucked on by the school of fishes. This is an absurd lie considering I can't stand getting my toes sucked on -_- Just take my word for it, k?

And for dinner, we went off to celebrate (albeit belated) Joo turning 25!

Pau, Mei and Joo: happy 25th Joo! :D

Day ONE of our amazing beer binge... started with them being FOURTY bloody FIVE minutes fashionably late. And I'm left to camwhore with the huge ass mirror panels (which will come in handy later) while I wait:

Camwhoring--checking out the angles!

Alas, we didn't finish the 16 bottles last night and ended up taking home about... seven? They're all nice and cozy sitting in Chris' fridge as this post is going out. Nevertheless, supply won't be running low anytime soon... we're going back this Saturday ^^;
