Malaysia Typically Malaysia

Despite being an engineering university, this place is filled with engineering failures. Even blatant common sense seems to escape to those involved in designing this university. Kinda like how our country is run, we have Petronas Twin Towers yet we have third world infrastructures...

This wasteland, when it rains it pours like there's no tomorrow. So common sense dictates that all walkways connecting each buildings should be shaded. But no, the whole place is so badly planned that the shades only covers certain walkways... So what happens when it rains hmmm? Even the shaded walkways are not fully covered...

Recently, WIFI hotspot has been installed throughout the whole campus. This is a huge feat for this little campus. Its the equivalent of mankind discovering fireworks can be used for military purposes. But even this WIFI hotspot is not stable... Its been going for a few months but still its so unstable. Why is so hard to maintain proper functional WIFI hotspot?

I am curious to know if the university is able, out of the blue, change the curriculum set from the beginning of my course. Initially, my course didn't have the Final Year Project which carries six credit hours. Then, in the middle of my internship they decided that they needed it for US recognition. On top of that, they decided to make an elective compulsory for all to take. So a total of nine credit hours added from no where. Couldn't they notify us earlier so we can plan our curriculum properly?!

Sigh...

Busy Student?

I love my new semester's timetable cause its got lots and lots of empty spaces. I guess it is expected when you're in Final Year. I'm glad though but at the same time two major projects running concurrently is gonna be a pain in the ass.

Totally free on Friday and I only have a class on Monday at four which is Mandarin. That means super long weekends for me to do my work and if need be, go down to KL. It doesn't look like a schedule for a person taking 20 credit hours but I guess the workload will be the projects.

Lots of white spaces. I like.

The Mandarin class that I'm taking for my elective teaches really simple Mandarin. I feel like I'm in nursery school learning Mandarin from scratch. I'll just have to bare with it. Hopefully I can get a distinction from this subject. Its got an oral test and a 80 words essay exam. Gonna practice what to write for my essay. Something along the line, "My name is... I like... I am...". Hehehhe.

Good news thus far is that my roomie is in my team for Final Year Design Project. That makes 50% of the group consisting of fag boys. Hehhehehe. We shall design our plant a pink producing product plant. A little pink feathered boa here and there and sprinkle some fairy dust here and there as well.

Fabulous!

Santa Came Early This Year

As some of you know, McDave just got back from his vacation in Thailand. He's in the process of blogging his trip so keep checking his blog for those updates. Of course, he bought lots and lots of stuff, shopped till he dropped.

He got me some stuff too. Got two polo shirts that I requested, a lovely mug, a pair of cufflinks and a pair of CK boxer brief. I love the mug a lot cause its got a really sweet phrase written on it. He's such a sweet man.

Such a sweet mug.

Some other stuff that he got are junk food, keychains and some incense burners to give away to friends. I really like the keychains a lot. Skanky keychains they are. Obscenely skanky in fact. I remember seeing that keychain hanging on this phone when I first met him. So skanky...

Look at it for yourself.


This is the female version of the flasher keychain.


This is the male version of the flasher keychain.

See what I mean. Something that looks like innocent Cousin It from Adam's Family turns out to be some pervert flasher. Though you must admit, its hilarious. I reckon the male flasher is really the obscene one...

Durian Delight

I had a sudden craving for durian in the car on my way back to KL yesterday. So I called up my mom to get the ingredients I needed to make this durian dessert that I love so much. Really simple and easy to make.

First and foremost, you need durian. The biggest and meatiest durian you can find. Then get green beans, some pandan leaves and concentrated coconut milk. Get a pot and filled it with water, 3/4 of the pot should suffice along with the pandan leaves.

Look at those durian.

This amount of green beans serve two.

Pot filled with water and some pandan leaves.

Concentrated coconut milk.

Wait till the water is boiling and add the green beans in. Boil them till all the beans are soft and thick paste. This should take about an hour of boiling. Then peel off the durian meat and put it into the green bean paste. Mashed the meat and stir with the paste.

Serve this with the concentrated coconut milk and tadaa, you have a green bean durian dessert. I had this with McDave for breakfast instead. That lasted me for a long time, well after lunch.

Yummy stuff.

Try it out for yourselves. Its delicious.

Civilization Here I come

Barely a week and I'm already heading to KL today. Hehehe. Need some doses of civilization and polluted air in my system. I can't wait to go back. Will be leaving late evening I guess. La faghag has an appointment with her lecturer after lunch...

My trip down to KL isn't a leisure trip unfortunately. I have several things that I need to get from home. Gotta get my UPSR result slip to prove that I have never studied Mandarin to attend my Mandarin class that I'm taking as a Humanity Elective. So annoying.

The next item on my list is a portable hard drive, Maxtor Personal Storage 3200 to be precise. I think its about time that I get myself one to backup all my photo and perhaps songs as well along with my project stuff.

And lastly, secondhand textbooks. I'm really trying to avoid buying the firsthand textbooks. They cost too much. I'd even like it if I can photostat it.

Perhaps I can try to squeeze some time to meeting some bloggers in KL. Will have to see how things go.

By the way, McDave comes back from Bangkok tonight. Yey, I'm so happy.

Au Revoir

Farewells, partings really suck... I hate it. Hate it all the time it happens. Makes me sad and down. The world would suddenly turn a gloomy gray and feel as though I am left behind as the gray world continues on. Sigh.

As of today, Mystical Notroh Woods is left with one keeper. Two other fairies have left the woods for other exciting adventures that awaits them. I will be here for another year till it is my turn to part from the Notroh Woods.

As I was listening to Pachelbel's Canon in D, I thought back to the first time I met these two wonderful fairies and all other memories of them in the woods. Then I broke down in tears knowing that they would no longer be here. No more popping into their window to greet them or having meals together.

I hate partings.

But it is part and parcel of life, is it not?

Barely ended first half of the year and already I had to go through so many partings. Guess this year's lessons in life to me is partings.

GUI

Got my topic for my Final Year Project (FYP) sorted out. Actually, I've never been this 'kiasu' in my life before. I attended a talk on Polymer Research by BASF R&D President and my potential FYP lecturer happened to be there as well. Once the lecture ended, I literally ran to catch him.

His topics are rather interesting. Neural networks in some processes in a refinery and Graphical User Interface (GUI) for Organic and Inorganic compound properties along with some other four topics. I picked the GUI topic since I'm interested in programing stuff for my FYP.

Basically, I am to write a program in Matlab software of a database of all the Organic and Inorganic compound properties. Kind of like a reference book in a software format. All conceivable properties should be included. Sounds easy enough but it is a lot of work.

For starters, I'll have to learn from scratch how to use Matlab. I actually stepped into the library and borrowed a book for the first time in so many years. I don't like the library much. I'd rather do my work in my room in front of my computer. Anyhow, there's a thesis that is similar to my topic. Need to get a hand on that to look at the codings as a reference.

Sounds like loads of fun. I hope I can complete it under two semesters so I can concentrate on other stuff in my final semester.

I can't believe I'm a final year student already. Never in my wildest dream I would survive this forsaken wasteland.

Hidden Talent

Have you ever wondered if you've got a hidden talent or a knack of doing something? I'm sure everyone's got something that they're really good at but never really give much thought about it? I certainly have a talent in computer related things but yet here I am doing Chemical Engineering.

Here's an inspiring story if a humble mobile sales person, Paul Potts who turns out to be an amazing opera singer. This is from Britain's Got Talent show back in 2003. Truly amazing story and everytime I hear him sing, it makes me want to cry and hairs on the back of my neck just stand up.

Here is his audition.


And here is his finale performance.


Amazing performance. Just shows that anything can happen in life if we just give it a go.

Anyhow, I've always wanted to write a proper program since the first time I laid my hands on C++. Now I've a chance to do so for my Final Year Project. There are a number of programing and simulation topics that interests me. Not really keen with labs or tonnes of technical literature research. I'd rather do something hands on and computer related. I'm going to see my lecturer now actually to get more details about it.

Wish me luck~~~

Roman Men

I've been watching the miniseries ROME and my it is bloody good. It is set during the era of ancient Rome and Gaius Julius Caesar. The storyline is really captivating along with good actors playing the role of Roman men.

Here's the basic plot of the whole miniseries.

"Rome" is the saga of two ordinary Roman soldiers and their families. An intimate drama of love and betrayal, masters and slaves, and husbands and wives, it chronicles epic times that saw the fall of a republic and the creation of an empire. The series begins in 52 BC, as Gaius Julius Caesar has completed his masterful conquest of Gaul after eight years of war, and is preparing to return to Rome. He heads home with thousands of loyal battle-hardened men, huge amounts of loot in gold and slaves, and a populist agenda for radical social change. Terrified, the aristocracy threatens to prosecute Caesar for war crimes as soon as he sets foot in Rome. Caesar's old friend and mentor, Pompey Magnus, attempts to foment mutiny in order to maintain the balance of power. Two of Caesar's soldiers, Lucius Vorenus and Titus Pullo, thwart Pompey's plan and in the process, win the eternal gratitude of Caesar and the Julian clan, affording the two plebian officers an intimate view of the ruling class. The fates of Pullo and Vorenus become entwined with those of Caesar, Mark Antony, Cleopatra and the boy Octavian, a strange and awkward child who, by political guile and bloody force, will become the first emperor of Rome.

-taken from TV.com

It is interesting that throughout the movie, they portray some homosexual cultures during the ancient Roman days. There was a scene when the boy Octavian was in the brothel and he was presented with prostitutes both male and female. Not that I'm surprised by this, just surprised that they included the scene.

I drool everytime looking at the Roman men in the movie especially the actor acting as Mark Anthony. He's hot and adorable. Got lovely sculpted body and perky bubbly ass. Heheheh. Pity there's no homosexual sex scenes yet. Hehhehe. I'm just recalling the series Queer As Folk. I love that series.

I sometimes feel envy of the ancient times where homosexuality was accepted. In the East we have a documentation of The Cut Sleeve Emperor and to the West we have in Rome and Greece countless documentations of homosexual relations. Not to forget The Scarlet Band of Thebes, elite force formed exclusively of gay lovers. I feel proud being a gay man. I solute those gay men who died in the Scarlet Band.

I miss McDave...

He's in Thailand now, no doubt enjoying himself with his friends. How I wish I am there with him now...

Mirror Mirror On The Wall

Argggggh. I can't stop staring into the mirror next to me. Every 10 minutes and I'll look into the mirror. Every time I look into the mirror, I'll spot a white hair. Apparently I have tonnes of them hidden under dense black hair. Hunting each white hair was not an easy task but it did provide some distractions for my eyes away from the screen.

I spent so many hours sitting in front of my computer typing my internship report. So many things to write. At least the weather was rather pleasant today. It was bright in the morning till the afternoon when it started pouring and pouring. Its cooling but not humid so that's good.

Finally finished my report but to my surprised, it is only half the maximum allowable page. Its not like I'm lacking of contents to write. I have included all the necessary and some, not so, necessary informations in the report. I could not use pictures since there are none to begin with.

Anyhow, I'm glad its all done. Now I shall stare outside my window while it is raining.

Lion King Returns

Finally, after hours and hours of traveling to campus, cleaning and unpacking my stuff, its all done now. My body is so tired right now but I still have my internship report to do. Good thing I am feeling up for it to finish it.

I'm really happy with myself. I managed to cut down on quite a number of unwanted things to bring to campus. As a result, it only occupied the space at the back of Toyota Unser. Woot woot.

All my stuff that I need.

McDave came with me and my mom to help out with the shifting and cleaning. So sweet of him. Love my dearest, strong He-man baby. The room was like usual, dirty and dusty. Took hours to get the dusty feeling of my feet by mopping constantly.

Anyhow, besides the dust and all, I love the room a lot. Its got lots of shelves for me to put my stocked up stuffs and the designs are rather well planned. I didn't really liked it at first but when I started unpacking, it was brilliant. I love my shelf spaces.

Don't really like the bed much. Its much thinner and smaller compared to my last room. Oh well, I'll just have to live with it. Rat rat, Teddy and the gang (Yes I brought them along) are settling fine.

My little bed.

The view is rather nice at night actually. I like having my desk directly in front of the window, allows me to rest my eyes from time to time. Not to mention, direct fresh air! Fresh air mixed with my BodyShop aroma burner. What a great mix don't yea think?

ISETAN Member Sale

Sale sale sale!

Yes, ISETAN Member Sale is back! Woot woot. This made me very happy considering that tomorrow I shall be exiled to Mystical Notroh Woods. Just as Jesus and his thirteen Apostles had their Last Supper, I had my last shopping spree and sense civilization (basically being in really really tall buildings). Not to mention, last ogling at all the beautiful specimens of boys.

I am gonna miss this place.

I didn't get much from the sales actually. I only got a pair of jeans (unexpected but it was too gorgeous to not buy it.) and a belt to match from Seed. I love this pair of jeans a lot cause it is super low cut, lovely colour and fits me perfectly. I love the red stripe on the belt and the buckle is really nice too. Cute Seed guy was there and we spoke. *gasp I nearly fainted when he opened his mouth.

New jeans and belt to match.

Here's a little more picture of the sales in ISETAN.

Sales in Key Ng.

More sales in Padini.

Here is a cutie cashier. So sweet, funny and well mannered.

I was looking for shirts but I couldn't find a perfect fitting shirt. I can wear the shirts from Seed, which are dem fitting but not too fitting to reveal much of my flaws. Just that its a little uncomfortable wearing it even though I look absolutely fabulous in them. I shall lose more weight. Till then, no Seed shirt for me just yet.

Polo shirts are still obscenely expensive...

With no shirts in my shopping bags, I proceeded to Kinokuniya to buy some more books to stock up. I'm running out of books to read. So I got these two books, Blind Willow, Sleeping Woman by Haruki Murakami and The Little Prince by Antoine Exupery.

Two more books into my mini library of books.

Degree In What?!

My brother in law gave me a link to an interesting article today. Finally, the oldest profession might soon have degree course structured. Imagine when asked what's your qualification in an interview. Heeheh.

What would it be called though? Degree in Prostitution sounds a little straight forward don't you think?

Here's the article from the site.

Now for a degree in prostitution?

July 18, 2007 - 2:11PM

Funding for tertiary courses in prostitution could be considered under changes aimed at boosting quality and relevance in the sector, New Zealand education officials say.

But MPs on parliament's education and science select committee were told today that although courses in the world's oldest profession might be considered if providers put them forward, they would still have to meet tight criteria to get funding.

The questions on prostitution, posed by New Zealand First MP Brian Donnelly, surfaced as MPs were quizzing Tertiary Education Commission officials on changes to how tertiary education was funded.

Under the changes, from next year, institutions will be bulk funded on the basis of agreed three-year plans rather than on the number of students enrolled in specific approved courses.

Tertiary Education Minister Michael Cullen has said the changes are aimed at increasing the "quality and relevance" of courses.

However, they have raised questions regarding the TEC's actual control over individual courses.

National Party education spokeswoman Katherine Rich said she was concerned by the TEC's apparent "agnostic" attitude towards the content of courses under the new system.

She questioned whether it might lead to a continuing proliferation of courses such as twilight golf seen under the old system.

TEC chief executive Janice Shiner said under the new system a request to provide prostitution courses would be assessed against the same criteria as any other course.

AAP.

Now where do I sign up and what's the curriculum like for this course?

Stocked For A Blazing Nuclear Summer

Three more days till I am exiled to the mystical Notroh Woods where queer fairies and fairies alike dwell. So I did my first half of stocking up on things I need when I'm there, away from civilization. Did about RM190 worth of toiletries in Guardian. This should last me for some time.

So here's the stuff that I bought.

Dove products.

Nivea, Oral B and Gillette.

Can't help it, I'm high maintenance... Not easy and cheap to look fabulous these days... Thank goodness Guardian has sales too or the bill's gonna reach RM200++. The Dove body shower comes with a free refill pack, Nivea shaving gel got 20% off and Nivea facial foam comes with a free deodorant which I don't use...

A Little More Shopping

A miracle happened in campus while I was away for a semester. Apparently now has wireless broadband connections throughout the campus. Its about freaking time! Though I am skeptical of the reliability and the bandwidth of each user. None the less, as long as I get to use my MSN, I guess I'm alright with it.

Obviously, to access the WIFI connection I will need a WIFI adapter for my desktop and I got it today in Low Yat. Tadaa behold my connection to the rest of the world!

Linksys Compact Wireless-G USB Adapter. Amazingly super easy to use and portable too. Since it does not require any physical installation into the computer, it can be extended with a USB cord to position itself to receive maximum signal. Perfect for my usage and super cheap. RM98 per pop.

This is the packaging.

Here's the actual adapter.

Installation was a breeze. Just pop in the CD, install and follow the instructions. No fuss and mess. I just tried it out and it works. There's only one detectable wireless router but its locked... Deng it.

Besides that, I got mom to buy two more shirts for me. Hehehhe. One from PDI and another from People's. I really like the clothes they have in People's and the branch in People's are going to renovate the shop. You know what that means. SALE! I got the shirt for 50% off. Love it.

I love the colours of the shirt from People's.

The PDI shirt is kinda funky. Light blue stripes and some wordings at the back. Though I think the clothes are getting more and more expensive. This shirt cost RM71 after discount... The shirt from People's is only RM56... Sigh...


The PDI shirt.

Wanted to shop in Seed since two bloggers went with great buys but I forgot Mid Valley's outlet is closed for renovations... So sad. I think I should stop shopping for clothes. Heheheh.

Last note.

POLO SHIRTS ARE OBSCENELY EXPENSIVE...

Delicious Cafe

As part of my splurging-before-going-back-to-campus spree, I finally went to Delicious Cafe, Bangsar Village II. I've been curious about this place since the last time I passed this place when I went to Marmalade Cafe. Now that I've been there, I shall give my two cents on this cafe.

Entrance to Delicious Cafe.

I dislike the service provided by the waitresses. I rank it second to poor. First, they were just pointing to a random, general area for us to sit. I was literally walking randomly figuring out where to sit until they said, "Pick any seats."... My mom and I aren't the first customer to be in such situation. There were another two customers that were walking up and down looking for seats...

The second incident was when they brought us our orders. We ordered Warm Chicken Salad and Chocolate Brownies with Vanilla Ice Cream. Our waitress brought both the salad and the brownies together... Who serves main course and dessert at the same time... At least ask me when I want my brownies.

And the last, the waiters in the kitchen area were rather rowdy. They were talking and laughing so loud and not to mention pots and pants fell to the floor. Not a very pleasant dining experience...

Warm Chicken Salad.

The food was great. I love the Warm Chicken Salad tremendously. The vegetables were fresh and each bite gives a satisfying crunch to it and the dressing was just splendid. I love balsamic vinegar in salad dressing. Its got almond bits which I love and juicy chicken cubes.

And dessert, Chocolate Brownies with Vanilla Ice Cream. One word describes this and it is SINFUL. Each mouthful, the body screams CALORIES but it was worth every bite. Perfect balance of chocolate and vanilla, hot brownie and cold ice cream. On top of it, a generous serving of chocolate topping.

Sinful Chocolate Brownies with Vanilla Ice Cream.

I like the ambiance of the place especially the lightings. Great idea putting the lights in white bird cages and hang them up on the white branches. I like the idea of semi outdoor setting for those who smokes as well. There were tall, white frames, sliding windows to let the air circulate and sunlight into the place.

Check out the lights.

Besides the lack of quality waiters and waitresses, I like this place a lot. The food is lovely and the price is pretty alright. Go give it a try and see if you like it.

Tonight We Take Over The World

Yes! It is finally done. The download that I have been waiting for and it was worth the wait. 7.5 gig of pure hilarious entertainment and my favourite cartoon of all time. It is The Pinky and The Brain! I posted something about this a month ago. Crap, it took almost a month to finish downloading it?! My porns download faster than that...

Story of two lab rats trying to take over the world but always end up in a horrible failure. Gotta give credit to Brain for trying every night and Pinky, well he's just insane that's all. Every night will involve some elaborate plan, super sophisticated mathematical calculations and experimental sciences, all of which don't make any sense, to rule the world. Hehehhe Narf!

I'm worried that this cartoon may be a bad influence to rat rat. We watch the cartoon together and there are times I caught him doing suspicious activities. Hmmm. Is he scheming to try and rule the world?

I have a bad feeling about these two...

Who says cartoon is a bad influence to kids. Just look at the video clip below. A song on how to remember parts of the brains. Come sing along with me now.

Eight Saucy Secrets

Hawt deng it. I got tagged by ConanCat over the donut post I posted... This is so not worth it. Hehhehe.

Here are the rules:
  • Each blogger must post these rules first.
  • Each blogger starts with eight random facts / habits about themselves.
  • Bloggers that are tagged need to write on their own blog about their eight things and post these rules.
  • At the end of your blog, you need to choose eight people to get tagged and list their names.
  • Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they’re tagged, and to read your blog.
Anyhow, here goes.

Fact One

I love McDave very much.

Fact Two

I absolutely love stuffed toys and I have tonnes of stuffed toys in the cabinets collected over the years. Now, only five are on my bed. Infamous rat rat and Teddy, adorable Moo moo, fabulous Pink Lion and feisty Sharkie. Like a little family.

Fact Three

I'm a perfectionist and I wasn't even aware of it until someone pointed it out to me. That explains why I'll tweak my blog till everything was properly align, right fonts and etc...

Fact Four

I used to not own a pair of jeans. Imagine that. I was so un-fabulous when I first entered campus. I couldn't care less what I wore or how I look. Few months later, I bought my first pair of jeans and ever since than I don't wear khakis no more.

Fact Five

I love reading books but I wish that books here are cheaper. I read fantasies, fictions, science fictions and anything that doesn't require massive brain processing capabilities but not a no-brain-required-books.

Fact Six

I love watching porn especially Bel Ami porns. Love the actors that they hire, not too buffed and not too skinny. Just nice. Also, I'm developing a taste of Japanese porn too.

Fact Seven

There's something about waistbands and ankle socks that makes me go, "Oh hello there.". Makes a person physically more appealing to me. Buggered if I know why.

Fact Eight

My Axcest profile was featured once. I feel so popular. Heheheh.

Eight Lucky Winners:
  • Apollo
  • Kyle
  • William
  • Derek
  • Alexander
  • Legolas
  • C

Auf Wiedersehen

I cried today when I was out with McDave eating dinner in Food & Tea, Time Square... One minute I was laughing, chatting and the next thing I knew, a tsunami of sadness hit me and I felt as though I was drowning. The only time I felt this sad was during the breakup. Actually the breakup was worst.

I really hate partings. They almost always make me cry and its the worst feeling ever. Imagine every minute of your time spent with someone and you're very fond of them. Everyday is a great time when they're around you then comes the day you'll have to part with them.

Why am I talking about partings and cried? Today at five in the evening, my internship contract ended... Eight months has come to an end. It was a happy parting and everyone in the department were happy together for once. I'm going to miss them so much. They taught me so much and took care of me and la faghag real well like a nine members family.

Yesterday, they threw us a farewell lunch which I didn't make it on time to attend due to the medical drama and they got us presents. So sweet of them. La faghag got accessories from Essences and I got a bracelet from Philosophy. Both of us also got a project jacket.

I stuff from Philosophy!

Today, our boss bought us dim sum lunch buffet in Crown Princes. It was alright not the best dim sum since there weren't any pork served. Spent two hours eating and listening to my boss's stories. He's always been the fatherly and zen type of a person.

Not to mention, I won't be able to bug Leggie no more... Every morning, I'll email him and we'll just chat throughout the whole day. Hehhehe as though he has no work to do. Well thanks for everything Legs, it's been fun.

Doctor Oh Doctor

Something is lodged in my throat and its irritating me for a few days now... I can't seem to figure out what it is and I suspect it to be a chicken bone or something (sorry to disappoint you guys who thought it was a severed penis.). It was really bugging me today at work. I informed my boss about it and I headed to Gleneagles Hospital before lunch.

Thank goodness there wasn't many people in the Accident & Emergency where outpatients check in. Saw the doctor that we always see for years now. I told him of my situation and he told me to get an x-ray. Man, x-ray took about an hour from taking the x-ray and getting the results... I kinda felt asleep waiting for it. Did read a little of The God Delusion but was way too sleepy to process anything.

Here's my x-ray.

Oooo lookie lookie.

Looks kinda weird seeing my skeletal like that. He found nothing lodged in my throat. If you look closely, you can see my stud. That's about as foreign a foreign object can be found on the film. I'm curious yet disturbed at the same time why there's so little brain matter that shows on the film... They look like hairballs to me...

Since the x-ray showed nothing, he referred me to an Ear, Nose & Throat specialist. He did the whole spray something icky into mouth, shoved in a steel tube and enjoyed the journey down my throat. Found nothing again... Though he did ask me to come again on Monday for further check up. I can still feel the freaking thing down my throat...

So that was the drama I had...

Check out this poster they have in the lift. The guy in the poster is so HAWT! I wanna get my regular full check-up done by him. Hehhee.

So HAWT!!!

Strangers Around

Was out with my ex (hereafter will be known as Fashion Designer) after work to accompany him for his waxing session in Senjakala. We had a blast of a time. Seriously, we're better as friends than lovers, as we often say. I was terrible as a lover when we were together but that's history.

We had dinner in Kim Gary's, KLCC. He's like the first and only Indian who would frequent Kim Gary's. I'm not complaining about it. So obviously I would look for my favourite waiter there. I forgotten his name but he's there and adorable. Saw him in glasses too. Super adorable. Heheheh.

Strange encounters happened today while we buzzing through the city. One happened when we got back to KLCC from Senjakala. Two tourist from Hong Kong stopped me and asked for direction to the LRT. They were speaking in Cantonese. Had to pick the most Chinese looking who happened to not speak much of Cantonese. But thank goodness I understood and gave them the directions to the LRT. I'm so proud of myself but felt a little strange.

Me speaking Cantonese = Strange

Me speaking Mandarin apparently is laughable to Paul...

Immediately after that though, I was browsing through the watches in Swatch, there was an Indian dude who looked at me and asked, "You want to buy a watch?". I was taken aback by it. I'm in a watch shop and he asked if I wanted to buy a watch while he wasn't even a staff there... Bizarre... I just declined and hurriedly scuffled to Fashion Designer. Then the Indian dude vanished. So strange!

As last encounter was at the bus stop waiting for the shuttle bus to take me home from the LRT. I was talking on the phone with Fashion Designer and there was a Malay woman who kept starring at me. Starred at me until the bus came. I didn't pay any attention to her but when I was seated in the bus, she sat straight next to me while there were tonnes of free seats around... Strange! Can't she feel my queer vibe and that I'm not interested?

Yummy Food

There's a Chinese proverb saying Chinese people eat anything with its back facing the Sun. That's literally everything on Earth you can think of and I am incline to agree. I've heard stories from my parents' trip to China last year. Apparently, all restaurants will have some sort of a mini zoo outside of the restaurant and patrons choose what they wish to be on their dining table for the night.

I had my fair share of adventurous eating. At the age of ten, I had my first snake porridge. Snakes surprisingly taste like chicken. Everything about the meat is exactly the same as chicken. Initially, my dad tricked me into believing that it was chicken porridge. I believed him until I found the snake scales at the bottom of my bowl. I continued eating it till the last drop of porridge.

About the same age as well, I discovered how delicious frog legs fried in butter with garlic is. It is the most succulent, sweet, tender meat I've ever tasted. It is like eating chicken drumlets but the texture resembles the smoothest fish meat in the sea. Frog legs porridge is nice too but I prefer it fried with butter and garlic.

I've always avoided eating raw oysters. I think they stink and have a rather disgusting during and after taste. The look of it is also rather disturbing. No amount of garnishing will make it look edible. I don't know exactly when I started loving raw oysters and I am hooked on oysters. Bring me to a buffet with oyster bar and you'll see me finishing plates after plates of oysters. I probably just have nibbles of the other food on the counter.

Having said some of the 'exotic' (mild) things I've eaten, there are things I will never eat like McDonald's special sets that they keep churning out everytime there's a new movie out. First Shrek and now Surf's Up. I can't bring myself to eat that ultra radioactive green goo Shrek meal nor will I touch bright ultra violate blue Surf's Up meal with a ten foot pole either.

Just look at that blue...


Don't it look like nuclear waste?

Colour blind as I am, I still can see how violently vibrant, full of chemical and artificial colouring those two sets contain. I just can't imagine me eating them. I'm fair enough as it is, I don't need to turn myself into a walking rainbow with all the colours in the visible light spectrum spread through my skin. As if I need to reaffirm myself as a gay boy eh.

Why Am I Sweating...

Usually, if I wake up sweating like a hog, there are two causes I can think of. One nightmare, scared shitless being chased by Freddy Kruger and the likes and two, long hours of power failure. This morning, I woke up to my alarm fully covered with sweat.

First thing that came to mind was, "Ah fuck, power outage. It had to be on a Monday...". Then I looked around and I hear my computer humming like an aircraft prepping to take-off. None of these were make any sense.

Sweat + No fan = Power Outage

Computer humming = Power On

So confusing but I think I may know what happened. In the course of hurrying back, strip, change into clean clothes and head to bed, I may have turned the lights and the fan off without realising it. Best of all, I didn't even wake up to turn it back on in the middle of the night. I was that beat after a dinner/supper session with Will and KT.

I pity rat rat and Teddy, both of them were flattened. They always end up being flattened no matter how I hug them to sleep... Its like how a cat always lands on its feet, the same applies to them. Hug them to sleep and next thing I know, flat under my pillow as though giving me additional support for my next. Heheheh. Me sweating sure didn't help much either. I bet they're now covered in QueerRant Eau de Toilette. Hehehe. I don't smell bad ok.

Big Apple Donuts

Big Apple Donuts Packaging.

Absolutely the most delicious and divine donuts I've ever tasted. Moist dough, soft yet satisfying the chew and the cream they use are lovely, not overpowering or sickeningly sweet. Everything is just nice. I love these donuts especially the peanut butter donut called Witnut. Lovely just lovely, melt in your mouth and party full of flavours.

The donuts were so nice that I decided to pack half a dozen back to let C and his brother try em. I got extra peanut butter donut since they're just divine. The donuts that I got were peanut butter (Witnut), vanilla cream (Iceberg), mango cream (Mango Tango) and banana. All of them just really awesome to eat. I really don't like the donuts that Dunkin Donuts have. Rather disgusting and awful in my opinion.

Lovely donuts.

Price wise, I think it's alright considering the size of the donut and the quality of it. It's RM2.00 per piece, RM9.50 for half a dozen and RM17.90 for a dozen. Come to think of it, these donuts make a better movie food than popcorns. Its way delicious than popcorns, more satisfying to eat and cheaper in terms of filling-ness. Problem is, how am I to smuggle in a dozen donuts...

If you haven't tried it, go try it NOW. You don't know what you're missing out on. Until I have tried Krispy Kream Donuts, Big Apple Donuts will rank the best donuts. Someone buy me Krispy Kream donuts please?

Shopaholic

Out of the blue, the other day mom said, "Lets get you a pair of runners. I'm thinking Friday after work". *blink blink I said sure and asked no further questions. No way I was going to complain about spending when mom offered. I decided that we should get my runners in Studio R, KLCC, hoping that I would get the same model runners from New Balance that I tried few months back and get a good buy from the sale.

NewBalance 676

I got a pair from New Balance but I don't know if it's the same one that I tried. No matter, its really light and comfortable to wear. My sore feet instantly re-energised after trying it. Great support and soft on my heels upon impact. Love the shoe so much. Now I can start shedding those "stored energy" in me. Got 20% off RM289.00 and also a one month VIP pass to CNergy Fitness. Awesome but pity I can't use the VIP pass. Anyone wants it? Its up for grabs to anyone here.

Free fitness center pass.

Since Kinokuniya was just next door, I dragged my mom in with me. I wasn't really searching for a particular book but I felt like shopping for books (I can hear Paul sneering at me already...). I eventually settled for The God Delusion and The Velvet Rage. Cost me RM 96.00. Seriously, how does the Government expects its citizens to be well educated with book prices so high... Tax relief? WTF am I suppose to do with tax relief?... I'm a freaking student...

Two more books added into my little library.

Anyhow, I met an elderly man named George while I browsing for books. I wanted to see what the fuss is about The God Delusion, everyone seems to be reading it. I found where the book was and just read the reviews. Looked interesting enough but I wasn't sure if RM 42.00 was worth it and George happened to be reading it there. I asked him how it was thus far and just with that, we were talking about a myriad of topics ranging from the books he's read to our lovely government. He was really kind in sharing what his knowledge to me even though I'm just a stranger asking him how the book was.

You'd think I'd be satisfied with all the shopping that I have done so far but I'm still craving to shop for more things. I don't know why. I have this unsatisfied impulse to shop in me. Must be the Government sending subliminal messages asking me to shop more or it's just my period coming along... *shrugs

I'm still thinking of the pink shirt from Zara... I'm going to try it on one day and take a picture of it in the changing room. If I can't buy it, I'll have a picture of it on me. Heheheh. A nifty trick I learned from slender faghag.

Curious thing happened on the way back from KLCC after the shopping spree. There was a guy and a girl in the LRT. The girl was hugging the somewhat good looking guy, marginally my type sort. Upon exiting the LRT, I caught him looking at me and I looked back. He gave me a grin while maintaining eye contact. I grinned back and walked passed him. Never encountered that before but it felt nice.

Message From The Godly C

This is C and today I will be filling in for Queer Ranter today, in a phenomenon known as "Guest Blogging." (Services available, reasonable rates, inquire within).

Fabulousity, and other Errors.

I've known QR for many many years, and I feel privileged to have witnessed some of the more pivotal stages of his life, such as his coming out, both to himself, and to the world at large. As he tells it to me, he pretty much came to an understanding of what he was, and how he was about it, and many times he's told me that coming out was the best thing that had ever happened to him.

There's a famous story we like to circulate; namely my reaction when he told me he knew he was gay.

Picture: Him in my room, on my bed. I'm on the computer, facing away from him.

QR: Hey C.... I think I'm gay.
Me: Well it's about damn time.

Since then he has definitely grown more comfortable with his identity and his new life. He's even got a better sex life than me (which is totally unfair, you queer bastard).

It is from this basic background I bring you the TRUE title of today's post, which is:

You May Be Gay, But That Doesn't Mean You Have To Act Like A Bitch.

Yes, I'm looking at you, you flamboyant Diva with your pink shirts and your bag obsession and your perfume and your personal grooming. Don't think I don't know what you're up to. You call yourself my friend, but when my back is turned, I know you're secretly tweezing.

I mean for gods sake, he uses the word fabulous in conversation. You may think 'well what's wrong with fabulous, it's a perfectly acceptable adjective' but the guy pronounces all three syllables. Fab Beau Lus.

It's like he's attempting to become gayer and gayer as time goes on. I'm pretty sure at least some of it is on purpose; things like dating guys and caring about your appearance is pretty normal, but this man owns a t-shirt with the following print:

Taste my Nuts!

I'm fucking serious.

The subtitle: A Salty Snack is in My Sack.

I may be a zero on the queer scale, I may be 100% heterosexual, I may like girls very very much, but I do NOT go around with T-shirts that advertise the contents of my testicles. Imagine if a girl were to walk around with 'Bonk me hard enough and these puppies will lactate in eight months' printed across her chest. Some things are just not POLITE.

Have I mentioned his 'tendency' to be naked in my presence?

Seriously. True story.

I went to his place, because I consider him to be my friend (although I'm putting this up for review sometime soon) and he answers the door by opening it just a tiny fraction. This is normal. Mosquitoes.

He says 'oh hey. Come in' and he's wearing a towel.

Seriously. What the fuck.

'Why aren't you wearing any pants?'

'Not bothering.'

...

I haven't even gotten to the things he says in polite company. He can be anywhere, sitting next to anyone, and somehow a reference to penises or anal sex will come into the picture and I'm left trying to hide my face in the mashed potatoes.

I don't know why I even bother. QR, if you're reading this, Stop Acting Like Such A Bitch. At the very least, if you're going to keep doing it, stop doing it in front of me so I can pretend I still have decent friends who won't embarrass me at every turn.

And no, I will not lend you Deathly Hallows when it comes out. SO THERE.

My England Very Good

As Malaysians, we've come a long way. 50 years of independence and we have achieved so much. We have the Twin Towers of Petronas, KL Tower, strong economy and generally the people are happy. But the most outstanding achievement is we have assimilated the English Language to our own. Not just the 'lah', 'ka' or 'mah'. I'm talking about the whole new grammar structure, new vocabulary and a whole new way of speaking the Queen's language.

No more long winded and time consuming conversations. The English language is now concise, efficient and sends the right message all the time. Here are some examples that may help you with your England.

WHEN GIVING A CUSTOMER BAD NEWS

Britons: I’m sorry, Sir, but we don’t seem to have the sweater you want in your size, but if you give me a moment, I can call the other outlets for you.
Malaysians: No Stock.

Britons: Hello, this is John Smith. Did anyone page for me a few moments ago?
Malaysians: Hello, who page?

ASKING SOMEONE TO MAKE WAY

Britons: Excuse me, I’d like to get by. Would you please make way?
Malaysians: S-kew me

WHEN SOMEONE OFFERS TO PAY

Britons: Hey, put your wallet away, this drink is on me.
Malaysians: No-need, lah.

WHEN ASKING FOR PERMISSION

Britons: Excuse me, but do you think it would be possible for me to enter through this door?
Malaysians: (pointing the door) Can ar?

WHEN ENTERTAINING

Britons: Please make yourself right at home.
Malaysians: Don’t be shy, lah!

WHEN DOUBTING SOMEONE

Britons: I don’t recall you giving me the money.
Malaysians: Where got?

WHEN DECLINING AN OFFER

Britons: I’d prefer not to do that, if you don’t mind.
Malaysians: Don’t want la…

IN DISAGREEING ON A TOPIC OF DISCUSSION

Britons: Err. Tom, I have to stop you there. I understand where you’re coming from, but I really have to disagree with what you said about the issue.
Malaysians: You mad, ah?

WHEN ASKING SOMEONE TO LOWER THEIR VOICE

Britons: Excuse me, but could you please lower your voice, I’m trying to concentrate over here.
Malaysians: Shut up lah!

WHEN ASKING SOMEONE IF HE/SHE KNOWS YOU

Britons: Excuse me, but I noticed you staring at me for some time.. Do I know you?
Malaysians: See what, see?

WHEN ASSESSING A TIGHT SITUATION

Britons: We seem to be in a bit of a predicament at the moment.
Malaysians: Die-lah!!!

WHEN TRYING TO FIND OUT WHAT HAD HAPPENED

Britons: Will someone tell me what has just happened?
Malaysians: Wat happen Why like that one….

WHEN SOMEONE DID SOMETHING WRONG

Britons: This isn’t the way to do it, here let me show you.
Malaysians: Like that also don’t know how to do!!!!

WHEN ONE IS ANGRY

Britons: Would you mind not disturbing me.
Malaysians: Celaka U

Remember, practice makes perfect class. Practice your England.

Zara-diction

It is official. I am addicted to Zara KLCC... La faghag and I went to KLCC today to get a birthday cake and we decided to take a peek in Zara. Yesterday, I got the bag but didn't browse through the clothes they have so that's what I did today. I kinda regret it now...

I saw the most adorable, lovely pink and white stripes short sleeve shirt. It's like THE pink shirt ever and I've not seen anything like it. The shade of pink, the cutting, the material and the general outlook of it is perfect. Oh I want it so bad... But guess how much it costs... It's more expensive than my bag... RM150. Dem it... La faghag and Sam thinks it's not worth it and I'm beginning to think so too. Oh but it's so pretty...

Disappointed, I went to Zara website to just browse randomly. Then I saw two lovely bags! My goodness, I haven't used my the bag that I bought yesterday and already I want another... I'm such a bag-whore... I've turned into a monster.


I love bags!

Both of them are bigger than the bag that I got. The black is made of nylon (I love for bags) and the brown is made of cotton (don't like it much). The black looks so sleek and stylish while the brown is more Oxford sort of a look. Oh don't bother comparing the both. Just look at it, both of them are so pretty...

I'm going to work tomorrow with my bag since the girls in my department insist I bring it tomorrow. I shall grant their wish and flaunt my fabulous bag. I love my bag. Love my bag so much.

I'm so turning gay by the days or as my ex puts it, "OMG, you're turning into a monster.". Not surprised really. The first time I met him, I didn't really bother with clothes and looked so BORING. I just wore shirts and khakis (the-so-unfabulous-days). I couldn't match colours and never even owned a pair of jeans.

And now, I crave for shirts, t-shirts, polos, jeans, bermuda shorts, bags, facial products, colognes, kinky underwear and all that is required to be fabulous. I plan the clothes that I want to wear and what accessories to go with it. I know how to colour coordinate my clothes and clothes suddenly became my priority expenditure. It's a total 360 degree turn for me and even I don't recognize the old me. This is what happens when you date a fashion designer.

Embrace the fabulousness.

Fabulous Day

Today is definitely my day despite the ever more noticing eye bags and dark circles forming around my eyes from the lack of sleep I've been getting since last week. Busy weekends meeting people and all is taking a toll on me but its all good since I'm leaving soon back to campus anyways. Enough about that, back to my fabulous day that I had today.

Work was really boring today with nothing to do except clerical work. I spent half the time trying to stay awake due to the lack of sleep on Monday night. Then came lunch time and I checked my email from my phone. Oh a comment by Khalel, what a pleasant surprise. I thought it was just another comment then this popped up.

Queer AwardG* Spot Award

Gasp! Me nominated as one of the G* Spot Finalist!

Beyond my wildest dreams that my little fabulous queer blog would be nominated. A little recognition is good for the amount of effort I try to make this blog oh-so-fabulous. I'll leave it to the readers to decide if this blog is worthy of the best blog of the month.

Now the most juicy juicy part of the post. I got a new bag! Its from Zara and it's only RM130! So cheap and I love the bag so much. It's so fabulously fabulous. It was love at first sight. I fell in love with it when I first lay my eyes on it yesterday. I didn't get it yesterday cause I was worried that it wouldn't go with all my outfits (yes I was being a real woman about the bag).

So today, I dragged la faghag to Zara, KLCC and asked for her opinion. We couldn't find it at first and I remembered it being the last bag on display but I forgotten how the bag looked like (I couldn't believe it myself). Searched high and low for it but couldn't find it. Then Sam came to the rescue. He spotted it being displayed behind the cashier.

My lovely bag~~~

I am saved!

Immediately got the bag from the shelf and held it like Gollum, "My precious...".

As if I need anything else to embrace my fagness, this bag will serve as a beacon to lost fag souls in the sea of heterosexuals. Come my fags, come to me. Hehehhee.

I LOVE my bag!

Freaks of La Faghag

The first word I use whenever I am asked to describe la faghag is beautiful. Though she doesn't think so but she is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful girl I've known. Physically and internally, she's can rival any Miss World contestant and I would immediately crown her as Miss World hands down. She is the best faghag any fag could ever hope for and the most stunning girl alive.

However, with beauty comes desperado freaks. To date, there are three that I know of. Let us start the first with someone from university. Call him Choke as in, "I tried to say goodbye and I choked.". He is the desperate desperado and boy he annoys the hell out of la faghag. Many times she's refused his offer to dinners, movies and all other outings but he don't seem to get the hint.

Since last year till today, he calls her to go out. He's not being persistent but more like a splinter that gotten under the skin and no matter how hard you dig, it ain't coming off. You need the bigger boys to do the job, operate it out like a cancer. Must she bring a guy (probably me) and hold hands with her to appear before him then only he'll stop bugging her?

Next is a desperate loner that we knew him on our first day of internship. He's from a different department but sat at the same floor as us
(our floor is small). We knew there was something 'off' about him, something not quite right. Then slowly we discovered how creepy he is... I don't know how to describe the creepiness (selective amnesia since there were so many traumatic experiences) but bottom line he is creepy.

Recently he got bolder, right at the threshold of sexual harassment. He would call her and say weird ass stuff. He would forward her emails and they contain messages like this.

Task you have to complete:

If you could rewrite the alphabet, what are going to put together!

Freaky Answer:

If I could rewrite the alphabet I'd put U and I together! Ha..ha..

WTF...

Oh and I forgot, he's FUCKING married...

Last is desperate greedy prick. He's got the balls to try and double time la faghag. See being in my department, we know EVERYTHING or have access to EVERYTHING. He thought I wouldn't find out if he's got a girlfriend or not. Stupid ass. Even till today, he denies that he has a girlfriend and keeps calling her for outings.

What prick...

Sigh.

It is alright love, your Prince will come. After all these freaks clear the coast, you'll see your Prince. Meanwhile, I'll be your Knight-in-shining-armor to fend off these savage beasts.

Randomness

Random. Random is used to express the lack of order, purpose, cause or predictability in non-scientific parlance. Sounds like me alright. Thinking back, I've said many random things and people will just start rolling on the floor laughing. Not stupid things but just totally random.

Alex was passing me two MP3s of a CD he bought from EBay and I was complaining the fact that he was only giving me two MP3s. Just a sample he said... Bah.

Then I typed,

Yer...

This is like making me feel your crotch but not letting me have sex with you...

Hehehe. I know, so random and skanky right?

C has a pretty nice description of this talent I've got. Its called 'Craft Disturbing Mental Images'. There was once, a bunch of us were talking about how soy and lavender can potentially grow man-boobs for those men who consume too much of soy or use lots of lavender products because of the estrogen hormone in them.

Then I blurted, "Woman beans.".

There was a moment of silence and then everyone laughed. For a split second I didn't know what I said then I joined in the laughter and giggling realising the horrific image I just edged to everyone's mind.
