Hi Everyone,

Careful what you purchase on EBAY.....
I Spent $50 on a penis enlarger.
Bastards sent a magnifying glass.

Old habits

When Jane initially met Tarzan of the Jungle, she was attracted to him, and during her questions about his life, she asked him how he had sex. "Tarzan not know sex," he replied.

Jane explained to him what sex was.

Tarzan said, "Oh, Tarzan use hole in trunk of tree."

Horrified, she said, "Tarzan you have it all wrong, but I will show you how to do it properly."

She took off her clothes and lay down on the ground. "Here," she said. "You must put it in here."

Tarzan removed his loincloth, stepped closer with his huge erection, and then gave her an almighty kick right in the crotch. Jane rolled around in agony, but manages to gasp for air and screamed, "What did you do that for?"

"Tarzan check for bees."

Which way again?

I used to laugh whenever I saw pictures
on the Internet about misleading road
signs. Well, guess what?
Malaysia has them too. Worldwide trend?


I loved this type of funny chocolates, which can
only happen when the girl's favourite Aunt comes
visiting from Australia. At one time, the insides're
actually crushed coffeebeans.

New glasses

The whole gang is at Mid-Valley today and there is a very specific reason why. Someone is going to get a new pair of glasses. When I was young, I needed to change mine every year as I keep complaining that everything gets blurry very fast. Nowadays, I do not have to worry about this because now, everything is so far away.

I am not sure why we always ended up at this
shop but here we are. As usual, Kristine is up to
her tricks and starts to play with the things there

And also, with that special mirror on the counter,
you can start to read her mind...

In the end, it was Mommy who needs a new pair of glasses since her current one is giving her problems. There were more things in store for the girls when the Sales Staff needed to test Mommy's eyes...

But before that, there was a bit of a bad news
as when Kristine's eyes were tested, the staff
discovered that she'll be needing glasses soon

Now, its Mommy's turn

The sales staff was very patient as she explained
each step to the girls.

After a few minutes, it is really Mommy's turn

Tracking the eyeball...

And bingo! Almost like a video arcade game... *ahem*

After that, it was time for dinner, which we went to 'The Chicken Rice' shop, which is slowly becoming Kristine's favourite right after MacDonalds. But for us, we're not too keen on this place as its very very expensive. Bu then again, if you were to total this up outside an actual Chicken rice shop, the price would be more or less, cheaper. But I am not too sure about the prices if you were to eat there alone.

I forgot why I ordered this but well, it was so-so

The funny thing was they will give your a point
card which you can stamp whenever you eat there.
The funny part was, we keep forgetting to bring
the card and so, we had to walk past the place all
the time, much to Kristine's dismay. Ha ha ha ha!

Kristine's Writing 'Board'

This is a new one for me. Apparently, Kristine's class practices their Chinese writing on this piece of flexible white board. However, after some time, the flexible white board became, um... to flexible and is increasingly creasing. This not only made the whole board dirty but just the notion of using it is very unwelcoming.

And so, we, as parents were given the task to find a replacement board. "You can find it in any bookstore." was the only helpful hint we got from her teacher. So, for the next few days and over the weekend, we went to any bookshop to look for the elusive board. However, as fate would have it, we could not find any bookshop that carries this product. So, in the end, even after looking at some bookshops, we had to give up since Popular does not even have it at all.

This is Krsitine's flexible writing whiteboard.
Yes, it is in a very bad condition. Then again,
it is understandable because it was sandwiched
between books in her school bag.

Even the other side was just as bad.

Feeling a little bit desperate, I hit on a backup
plan, which is to scan the original white board,
clean it up a little, then reprint it and had it

And so, more or less, it worked but because of
the laminating film's non glossy properties, its
not that easy to wipe the whiteboard marker's
ink off.

Kristine accepted it but I am not sure if she is
using it as it looked very different compared to
the original thing.

26062011 Bangsar Pasar Malam

When I was younger, without fail, I would go to Pasar Malam as often as I can. This was because at that time, there were no big shopping complexes such as 1-Utama, The Curve, Mid-Valley, etc. All we had was Sungei Wang, Kimisawa (yes, you're guessing my age now) and they're all too far away for me. Heck, at that time, taking the bus was not even an option.

And so, my only salvation was the weekly Night Markets or Pasar Malam, as it is more commonly known. Think of it as the equivalent of modern traveling nomads coming to your urban village bringing new wares and toys from their travels. And with it, I get the latest songs, toys and even videotapes (yes, that is how old I am). As I got older, and as I get the opportunity to travel outstation to other states, I would always try my luck to spot and enter into a Pasar Malam before I return back home.

However, with the changing times, the Pasar Malam is no longer what it was. The Bangsar one, that it. sure, I still see some of the same vendors, albeit a little bit older. But the wares nowadays are nothing to shout at. I won't blame it entirely on the new shopping malls but in an era where Information can be gotten at the click of the mouse, the Pasar Malam is fast losing its attraction or, charm in my terms.

You want the freshest fruits? Go to Hypermarkets.
Food? Hypermarkets.
Clothes? Shopping Malls.
Toys? eBay, Amcorp Mall and yes, other shopping malls.

So, where does this leave the Pasar Malam? What role can it still achieve? Apart from haggling housewives, sweating families, and newly married brides, who else still go there?

Anyway, here are some night shots I tried with the Nokia n8.

25062011 going to Amcorp Mall

I went down to Amcorp Mall to have a look at how the Hotz Toy shop is getting along. They were set up by SFTPMS member Silver and his friend, Loke. Hotz Toy deals not only the current toys but also, if you're lucky, toys from the past or, toys which you have 'missed' when they came to Malaysia.

OK, so that sounds more like second hand toys to you, right? But trust me, second hand or no, when then chance to relive or complete part of your lost childhood is in your hands, you will never say no. (Try not to imagine holding a Barbie doll if you're a guy, OK?). Also, once you get to know these guys better, do not be surprised to see grown ups buying vintage toys for thousands of dollars.

At the moment, the shop is not ready yet. They
have just taken over this permanent lot and the
best thing is, you do not have to wait for the AMC
weekend bazaar to have a look at the toys.

Alas, the trip was marred by those annoying
people with spray cans which I have encountered
before in the open carpark near Sogo years ago.

So, I got pissed off and pretended to call the
'Police' on my mobile phone. Once they
'heard' my conversation, they
really legged it. Dumbass.

26062011 Bored at The School

As usual, while Kristine is attending her Martial Arts class, the three of us were left with to our own devices. Unfortunately, the devices at that time were nothing else than your normal everyday writing utensils and sheets of pulped and bleached fibre. Wife on the other hand, had a Toshiba Notebook instead.

Sometimes, it is a wonderful experience to look at
a child's drawing as their minds are still 'fresh' and

But at the end of the day, the only thing
everyone ends up doing is asking, "What
is that?"

25062011 Trip to The Curve

Nothing much to do today, except to bring the girls to a bookshop as they needed some new stationeries. And so, the best place to go was Popular Bookstore. Since its a Sunday, we decided to try the one at The Curve...

One of the things I liked was these new range of
Diaries. The size is quite nice, almost like those
of Moleskin's.

But what really made the book worth it was the cover
material. Its so unique. But for the price, its expensive.

Oho... a smaller book and this
one looks very familiar....

Different bins for different things.
But to all Malaysians; "Thank
Goodness there are two other
bins. Which stupid idiot designed
such small bins?"

Since we're already 'out', the next logical place for lunch would be within the vicinity of The Curve. And so, we, once again, settled at Madam Kwan's, which is not only the most convenient spot but also, starting to be our more common restaurant of choice.

Alas, Madam Kwan's has deteriorated.
Just look at the quality of the seats.

Still, we made great effort to just concentrate
on what we came for. Food.

This is a first sign. A sign of what, I am not sure
because my mind was still on the seats.

Still, the food came and everyone was more or
less, enjoying their food. Then again, everyone
was hungry after traipsing about in the bookstore

Man, this Fried Rice looks delicious

Which is more that what Kaelynn can eat since
both girls have violent allergic reactions to hot
stuff (read: chilies). But my mind is still on those
damn seats, which is convincing me to try the
restaurant across Madam Kwan's in the future...

Afterwards, it was off to Tesco which, by amazing
coincidence, was located above Madam Kwan's.
Here, you can see how Spongebob has turned
violent, starting with Nerf Knock-offs.

I really hate it when my mind is stuck on something
which has no relevance. Such as what would happen
if I jumped onto those worn seats at Madam Kwan's.
Yep, stuff like these (left) might jump out of

the broken seat covers...
