Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?
Wednesday, February 23, 2011
A few weeks ago I was doing the cellgroup bulletin and songsheet, but I did it very, very late, because I had no internet connection the entire day, and by the time I was finished, all the printing shops around school were closed. Vision Art, My One Printing, and even Mail Box Etc. was closed. Heck. So I went to Sunway Pyramid to print the songsheet. Thing was, I didn't know any place that did printing there.
I went to the receptionist, who told me that it was opposite Popcorn Delivery. I was like what the? What kinda shop is that? And how come I never heard of it? I said "Excuse me, you mean its opposite Popcorn Delivery?" And he's like "Yes, yes!" I was like okay =/... he told me how to go and I ended up in the orange atrium of the new wing. I still couldn't find any damn thing called Popcorn Delivery. I looked around and around, and I called up the receptionist, on the directory phones. I said "Where's this Popcorn Delivery? I can't find it." And he guided me to the blue atrium, where I finally found what he was talking about... Poh Kong Jewellery!

Valentine's, Valentine's, Valentine's.
The 14th of February, which also happens to be my paternal grandmother's birthday. It's a day that couples love, and singles hate. I remember watching the movie "Valentine's Day", the one with the huge star-studded cast. In it, there was a part where Jessica Biel organizes an anti-Valentine's Day party and has a pinata that people can whack. I'd so love that right now. Haha.
I always make jokes about Valentine's, 'cause I've never properly celebrated it. Back in kindergarten and primary school, we'd make cards and give them to everyone in the class. It was a cute thing we did, and since none of us hit puberty yet, it wasn't a big deal. Some people went "ewww" at the thought of giving the opposite gender something. Lmao. As we grow older, more people want to celebrate valentine's with their other half. Or at least, the person they love.
My Valentine's Days have been weird. Most of the time. A few years back, there were two Valentine's where I actually celebrated with a couple. Yeah. A couple celebrated and I joined them. What the hell right? I felt like a big lightbulb, and it makes me puke seeing them so lovey dovey in front of me. They were good times spent though. I thoroughly enjoyed the time hanging out with them, even though I felt like an interruption on their special day. Yet they had no problem, and were the ones who invited me along. Two years back, I spent Valentine's Day with two girls, and had a good time hanging out. We were all single, but hey, I had two girls =p. Last year it was on the same day as the first day of Chinese New Year, so I visited relatives. My cute little cousin Zhu Xin, who was 5, held my hands, kissed me, hugged me and basically was a girlfriend. No, I am not a pedophile. Lol. I also blogged about the entire Khar Loo saga, and that led to a series of emails between us, where we defined what our friendship was. Despite half a year of exchanges, we never solved it. Now, we don't talk anymore. We don't even wave.
I know Valentine's can also be for friendship love and all that. But seriously? I know that it sounds logical and stuff, but no one seriously wants to celebrate Valentine's Day with their friends. They want it with their lovers. People will say it can be for friendship, and doubtlessly, it can. But I can speak for the vast majority when I say that its not what they prefer. The people who truly believe it can be for friendship are the people who already have a lover to celebrate with, or a very small minority who actually believe the friendship-ish part of it. We will celebrate with our friends if we have no other person to celebrate with, but I can be sure that if you had someone to celebrate with, friends would take a backseat just for this day.
I recently had a talk with my friend who said she believes I'll never get a girlfriend again. Haha. I don't quite blame her. She's got pathetic intelligence and is extremely immature. However, she's a good friend, so credits to that. I've liked 4 people since moving to Kuala Lumpur. Firstly, was Cindy. We know how that ended, when she brought two guys for a movie I asked her out for. So, I gave up, 'cause she likes Chee Meng. Then I liked Kai Yih, and I found out she had a boyfriend. Great. So I liked Shana, and she moved to USA. Then I liked Sze Ying, and till now, there's been no proper closure. Even after seeing her again last week. Just 4 people and my friend judges so easily. Heh... I didn't even woo these girls much anyway. I kept it natural and friendly. And I guess that's a good thing, considering all the circumstances that happened. So I only failed when it came to Cindy, and my friend believes I'll never get attached again. Of course, she was never in my situation, so I don't blame her. And again, she's got pathetic intelligence, so again, more grace.
However, I must admit I was a little annoyed at that remark. Wouldn't people get offended if they told you something that basically meant "Hey you suck with girls!"? Granted, I know she's really stupid and immature, but even then, obviously I wasn't pleased with that statement. Why? Because I'm pretty good at flirting. Socially, and casually. Not the manipulating with emotions kind. I meet new people all the time, and hang out all the time as well, with many, many groups of friends. Along the way, I meet many new people as well. There's always a very fun interaction when both parties casually flirt. And I've done plenty of that. And I still do, when I meet new girls. When it comes to guys, of course I don't flirt; but its good to chat and know them better as friends as well. I've gotten very accustomed to flirting around with anyone I want to, and enjoying drinking games and physical interactions with anyone I want to, wherever I want to, without having a worry of my other half. My social skills are great, if I do say so myself, and it only keeps improving with all the socializing I do and the process of meeting new people all the time. Plus, I've found out that a few people liked me before anyway, so I guess I must be doing something right.
Haha... I guess my previous paragraph was more like defending myself. I'm famous for blasting people (and at many times, it goes over the limit) so yeah. Anyhoo, people always have a list of what they want their future spouse to be. One thing that Pastor Kevin said on the Valentine's service was "Don't fall in love with your list". I know way too many people who are picky because some guy or girl doesn't match up to their expectations. They love their list of qualities so much they forget about real human beings. I mean, sure, you want a guy who can cook, considerate, tall, dark handsome, whatever. But then again, what makes you think that you deserve a person of such high quality? Do you think you match up to their list? People only think of what they want for themselves. Same for friendships. Sure, you met a great group of people. You say to yourself this is a group of people who are worthy to be my friends. Excuse me? Worthy? What makes you think you're worthy enough to be their friend?
So yeah, here's my Valentine's post. I came up with all this in like half an hour. A bit of ranting in the last part I guess? Haha.
And one last bit, anyone who says everyday should be Valentine's Day has no brains whatsoever.
Best picture on this day.

Aye... Good rest. And Happy Chinese New Year.
Been a few weeks since I last posted, and mainly, its been going out with friends and stuff. Hell yeah. A few weeks back there was a symposium organized by Sam. Justin, Redzuan, Michelle and Aaron came for it, and we met up with the others who came, which included Winky, Kai Ying, Xiao Gui, Gavin, Chun How, a guy called Hundredplus, his girlfriend, Joey, C, a beatboxer who happens to know my frens Shawn and Koujee, and a few others I can't quite remember. Actually, there's quite a lot I can't quite remember that night.
Yeah. Really. First, all of us sat in a circle, and we played some drinking game that involves a deck of cards. Each number or letter, and sometimes depending on the colour, will make you do some drinking thing or something. There's way too many actions, so I'm not going to say it here,, but it was a good ice breaker, and it got 4 people who sucked at drinking heavily drunk. Hell. The highlight of this game was Gavin, who ended up having to drink a sick mixture of Thai Song and red wine in those containers that store Chinese New Year tidbits. And it was no small amount. Respect!
After that there was another drinking game. 3 teams would try to drink out of the same tubs that Gavin drank, in the quickest speed. The slowest loses. Obviously, Justin, Redzuan and I decided to be one team, but they said we couldn't. Why? Because we're too good! HAHA! TOO GOOD! LMAO. So we ended up having to be the leaders of the three teams and pick our teams. I picked Joey and Bruce, who was already on the verge of puking, while the others had their own members. So, me and Joey had to drink (through straws) out of a tub that tasted like crap. And then we lost. Yeah. The other two teams sucked up that mixture damn fast! So now the losers had to drink the same thing using spoons to scoop and drink it. Someone took over for Bruce, and Joey and I ended up losing. Again. And guess what? The losers had to drink. AGAIN. Aw hell. Again with that sick mixture. This time Joey and i just drink from the tubs straight. I drank it, and again, I lost. LMAO. I lost three rounds straight! What the hell. I lost to a girl -.-. But respect to her, 'cause she took it very well. The alcohol I mean.
Now I pride myself on drinking a lot. A lot. I guess not in the fastest speed, but in the long run, definitely. However, with all that pride, I must say drinking Thai Song and red wine was the worst thing I have ever tasted in my life. You know when you go to a public washroom and there's this bad smell that smells toilet-dirty but with disinfectant? The mixture smelled (and tasted) that bad. Geez. So I had three tubs of that sick mixture. That explains my gagging and slow drinking speed. It was horrible. Geez.
We chilled out for a while and stuff chatting with one another. Particularly for me, I caught up with everyone, 'cause I haven't seen quite a number of them in a long time. Gavin and Chun How were foundation classmates, and I hadn't talked properly with them for a year, just hi's and bye's. Winky, who was a classmate after majoring, also chatted with me catching up on what happened after she quit TOA. Plus I was quite a bitch and asked Ephraim "Hey, so what's the reason you broke up with your girlfriend?" Sorry dude, alcohol does things.
Anyway, after that we drank and played Ping Pang Wah and The King and I. Except... I don't remember playing them. Out of all the things after that, I only remember making out with Kai Ying. Everything else after that, I really, really, don't remember. Even till now. It was so bad, that I didn't even remember we played Ping Pang Wah. Everything else I "remember" was told by other people. Redzuan said we played Ping Pang Wah, which I can't remember one bit. He also said that while I was kissing Kai Ying I caressed her. What the hell. Even I don't remember that. So yeah. I basically lost my memory of nearly everything after the three tubs. Awesome.
Nothing like this has happened since I went clubbing at Double O, and woke up on the MRT going back to Marsiling, with no memory of how I got on the train in the first place.
Chinese New Year was spent at my grandaunt's place. It was a good time spent. More and more, I'm sitting at the adult's table talking about different matters, instead of playing with cousins and stuff like last time. All the cousins here were tiny kids anyway, except for 3 of them. One's older than me, and the other two have just hit puberty. I had a funny conversation with one of the cousins. It went like this:
So I was drinking beer today, when my little cousin asked me a few questions... Cousin: Have you ever been drunk before? Me: Yeah, a few times. Cousin: What's the most recent time you were drunk? Me: Last week Cousin: What did you do? Me: Kiss a girl, and forget about practically everything that night. Cousin: Ewww~! Me: Wait till you hit puberty
I met up with Symposium a few days after, to catch up and celebrate CNY at Miki's place, and Andrew joined us. We went for karaoke, which ripped us off and watched Monga and Pulp Fiction at Redzuan's place, after chilling out a bit at Gilly Cafe.
Days later, Andrew asked me to go for a drink. I was free, so I went and joined him. He brought along his friends Valerie, Kelvin and one more dude. So drinking very expensive beer, and in a bar/club, conversation was pretty good, and I was pleased to meet them. Plus, Valerie was cute. Ahem.
And I also met a few more people after that. Just a few days back Fei Yan asked me to join her and Ajeet with a few friends to hang out in Hartamas. I was free, so I came along. I met another Justin, Wei Qi and some dude I can't remember, but has the hots for Wei Qi, who's also pretty cute. We shisha-ed and ate an awesome burger, amongst hilarious jokes and conversations. So yeah, a good time spent hanging out again.
And just last night, there was a Valentine's church service by Pastor Kevin. Hilarious message on the differences between guys and girls, and what young couples and older couples should do. Afterward, I joined Issey's cellgroup for dinner, since only Angelica came for service, the rest coming the next day. The fellowship was just awesome, extremely funny, and I got to meet a few new people again, one of them was a guy called Vincent, who might just be able to hook me up for a job once I graduate. Interesting. Regardless, it was a very fun time with way too much laughter!
And then since Symposium was only a few minutes away from where the cellgroup ate, I walked over to meet up with them at Shiok. Once again, a great time spent there, just chatting and catching up. Later on, we watched Crow Zero 2 at Redzuan's place again, and chilled out till 6am. Redzuan accidentally locked himself out of his room, so lols to him.
So yeah. Since CNY, it's been a great socializing time, meeting tons of new people, and enjoying time with the friends I already have. Awesomeness.
