13012014 A visit to Section 14

Today is the first time in 2015 I dropped in on Section 14, PJ. I used to love going to this place maybe its because during my early working days, my Office was just across the road (but you need to take a big round before you can cross the road). Things have changed since then.

My haunt has gone to Pasar Road, Hobby HQ and ICW. Over the decade, things have changed a lot from Miniature Hobbies relocating from 1-Utama to here before going to Jalan Kenanga and disappeared, Sushi King & TGIF came and went, so did Metrojaya. Then in came the Digital Mall, the equivalent of Low Yatt Plaza for Selangor folks and Jaya Supermarket was demolished, sacrificed a worked before being resurrected as Jaya-One.

And so, given the opportunity, I was glad to take this errand rather than relegating this to my tech as their time to our clients are more important *ahem*. After looking around, I got what I needed but my fav, the All IT store was closed for stock-taking.

One weird thing I experienced was when I wanted to buy a USB charger and cable. I went to a perky young girl and asked about the prices. It was RM10 for the charger and additional RM10 for the USB cable. I am not sure why, but then, my Engerlund went from local Malaysian to that or a Foreigner and her attitude lifted a bit. Many times she bent on front of me *ahem* and squatted *ahem-ahem* behind to 'get' the cable but I just looked away. The service was much better but it was still RM20.00. Cheh.

mah booties (l-r)
3x crispy popiah with 5x sardine currypuffs, a 10,000mAh Power bank, the RM10.00 USB cable and the RM10.00 charger.

So, why do I need a power bank? Well, I am going to experiment on it because I have a working theory on how to use it. Oh, and it charges my phone too....

Do drop by here and LIKE me now and then to see the fate of the Power bank...

When Chaos ensues...

So, today is D-Day for a lot of people. And just as I drove about, I see them jostling & pushing each other, blocking each other's ways, not caring if they scratched the car's paint-jobs or not. And I was just talking about the Parents. The kids on the other hand, meekly walked their way into the school's gates, knowing that their freedom has been taken away too soon.

As usual, the very first parking spot I find, I parked. Never mind about not being able to get out when neede to since the whole road would be congested in minutes. The veterans knew to park their cars far away so that the new frantic parents can have the spots. We're been there before and its like leaving your bars of gold with strangers.

Me? I went back to the car after getting the girls sorted out and took a nice nap. When I woke up, its time to go back home... :)

I mean, the extra week off (due to the floods) is already enough and the only regret was that I did not have the time to be with them since my new Job started.

My girl's have the right attitude!

The Morning after

 Well, here we go again.

I got drunk.

For the first time after more than a decade, I got drunk.

It started out as a normal Company Annual Dinner but once it was over, we adjourned to the Buaya Room where, as you would have guessed it, things went downhill for me from there. I won't call it a room but it more of a Pub with a nice dancing area. Unfortunately, all Patrons were much much older than yours truly. Anyway, with the CEO and the Manager pouring the drinks, you can't say no.

I can say, I managed to control it in the beginning because what was given was just the Whisky with lots of water and ice, which, was like drinking flavoured water. But I made a very serious mistake of adding some Coke to it since it felt tasteless to me. The Coke, which I were to learn later, helped speed up the alcohol absorbtion into the body.

Needless to say, there were some funny stuff which I knew was going on while I was trying to stay sober and understand what Company strategy and plans my Bosses were trying to tell me. The Singer next to us was not helping the situation either.

How I got home was a miracle because trying to sleep it off in an empty carpark during Full Moon was not part of the plan.
What the hell was I typing?

And yeah, they say its good.
But I was more interested in the round box that came with it.
