The Burgers I Got for FREE Through the Big Mac Chant Challenge...

Oh...Dreadful Thailand

Well, I have been to Amazing Thailand quite a few times.

In fact, so many times I believe I should get a Season Pass. For free.

But, every trip I go for is just getting worse (for me, that is. For my mom and the other ladies, I don't know. There's no understanding what goes on in a woman's mind).

And so, here I am, sitting in front of the computer screen, the timer ticking away, as I type these words. These expensive words. You wouldn't believe how long it takes to explain to the receptionist that I want to use the computer for only 1 hour, not 2. And even then -- as if my mood was not spoilt enough yet -- I have that enormous clock in front of me casually reminding me the short time I have left to use the computer. And don't get me started on the fee.

Well, I hope you guys (and gurls) are having a good time back home, while I have to haggle my way to a decent price for a pack cashew nuts my mom wants to buy. Just so you know, I do love haggling, except when it's against an elderly Thai lady who can only speak Hock Chew (which I vaguely understand) and insists on shoving more and more packets of cashew nuts into the bag.


It's going to be a LONG trip.

Before I elaborate more, please note that I said Sawasdeekap, stressing on the kap. For those of you who do not know, kap is for guys, and ka is for gurls. I hope that on your next trip to Thailand, you won't have people thinking you an ah-gua.

It's very embarrassing when you get your genders mixed up. Trust me, I know.

Anyway, just in case you skipped the first part of this post, and is therefore utterly blank on what this post is all about, (or perhaps you're just extraordinarily dense) I am currently in Thailand.

Hence the greeting.

Well, I am obviously not blogging from home, so don't expect perfect posts.

Also, I have a strict time schedule I have to keep to.

You know how retail therapy is like. Shop till you drop.

Well, I'll probably be too busy wondering the over-crowded streets of Thailand, so my posts won't be too elaborate.

(It means "Thank you", for guys, of course.)

I just read something that might make me have nightmares forever.

I read Scott's father's blog.

And, man, do I wish I had never done that.

To Shu Wen, Emily, Liiyung and other Scrabblers, I must give you a warning.

Visiting that site is toxic, and unless you want your brains to become mush and yourself to become floccinaucinihilipilificated, do not even think about it.

Let me give you a sneak preview about what horrors can be found in that site:

(i) You will find out that Scott is out-of-this-worldishly virtuosic when it comes to Scrabble (and his schoolwork, for that matter), and the person who finds him or herself facing Scott will be utterly consumed by his icy professionalism. I doubt he ever plays a Scrabble match for fun.

(ii) You will notice that his brother -- Sean -- is better than him. This should scare the living sh!t out of anybody even considering a match with him. By the way, Sean is world-rated No.2.
This here is a bloke you seriously don't want to mess around with.

(iii) You will be utterly astounded by Rob's (Scott's father's) nerve when it comes to insulting a certain school band and a certain Scrabble team. I pity the St. John's-ians. Mental note: Do not EVER have a Scrabble match at SMKDJ.

Well, for those of you who do not know who Scott Chung is, thank your god and lucky stars that you may have a good night's sleep not worrying when you might come face-to-face with the prodigy himself.

But, if you must see Rob's blog, please let it be known that I have tried all in my power to stop you. Hold your breath, and click..... HERE.

Last off, I just want to say...

Scott Chung, I want your brains!!!

Got The Exam Woes?

I do.

For those Smarty-pants out there, they are probably not even sweating it. Don't pretend you don't know, Liiyung.

Well, after recieving my exam results, I needed something to cheer me up. Well, I found the exact thing I needed in a book of riddles.

Here's some lame jokes I found in the joke book...

Three Doctors are dicussing which types of patients they prefer. Doctor Watson says, ''I prefer librarians. All their organs are alphabetized.''

Doctor Fitzpatrick says, ''I prefer mathematicians. All their organs are numbered.''

Doctor Ahn says, ''I prefer lawyers. They are gutless, heartless, brainless, spineless, and their heads and rear ends are interchangeable.''


A blonde reports for her university final exam which consists of mainly true and false questions. She takes her seat in the examination hall, stares at the question papaer for five minutes, and then in a fit of inspiration takes her purse out, removes a coin and starts tossing the coin and marking the answer sheet -- heads as true and tails as false. Within 30 minutes she is all done, whereas the rest of the class is still working furiously.

Duing the last few minutes, she is seen desparately throwing the coin, swearing and sweating. The moderator, alarmed, approaches her and asks what is happening.

"I finished the exam in a half hour," she replies. "Now I'm rechecking my answers."


A blind guy on a bar stool shouts to the bartender, "Wanna hear a blonde joke?"

In a hushed voice, the guy next to him says, "Before you tell that joke, you should know something."

Our bartender IS blonde, the bouncer is blonde. I'm a 6' tall, 200 lb black belt. The guy sitting next to me is 6'2", weighs 225, and he's a rugby player. The fella to your right is 6'5" pushing 300 and he's a wrestler. Each one of US is blonde. Think about it, Mister. Do you still wanna tell that joke?"

The blind guy says, "Nah, not if I'm gonna have to explain it five times."


One day, while a blonde was out driving her car, she ran into a truck.

The truck's driver made her pull over into a parking lot and get out of the car.

He took a piece of chalk and drew a circle on the pavement. He told her to stand in the middle and not leave the circle.

Furious, he went over to her car and slashed the tires.

The blonde started laughing.

This made the man angrier so he smashed her windshield.

This time the blonde laughed even harder.

Livid, the man broke all her windows and keyed her car.

The blonde is now laughing hysterically, so the truck driver asks her what's so funny.

The blonde giggles and replies, "When you weren't looking, I stepped out of the circle three times!"

What next...ARMAGEDDON?


That's all I can say.


Well, those of you who have not heard the news, pay attention.

A boy tries (or more accurately, threaten) to commit suicide. He stood on the 1st floor of Blok F and was shouting and crying. He was shouting to his girlfriend on the ground. He said he would jump if the girlfriend broke up with him. Girlfriend problem. Wait, allow me to rephrase this: Girlfriend = problem. But, fortunately, Pn. Wong and En. Rosdi stepped in and stopped this nonsense. Poor guy, hope he succeeds at his second attempt. At the girl, I mean.

Well, it's Teacher's Day. And hell for the students. Luckily, a second option is available. Write a letter and the day is off for you. Well, I bloody wish I never wrote that letter. Up until now, I still ask myself the same question -- Why didn't I go to school on Friday?! The uneventful Teacher's Day Celebration turned out to be one HOT party! 2 classes in Blok E were found to be burned to nothing, tables and all. The BP curtains were singed and the afternoon session Teacher's room was also affected.

All, I can say is...

Congrats, Datin.

The Truth about My Name

Here's something for you all to read:

My name is BLACK.

First impression -- darkish kinda name, very ominous.

But as you think deeper, black has a very vivid meaning, as some people call it the colour of sadness and sorrow. Black is a mourning colour, and holds with it the deepness and feeling of a thousand woes.

Some people condemn themselves to wearing black, mainly as a memory or gesture of respect to a departed relative. Through this, they let their inner pain and torture come free, the black they wear a symbol of inner suffering. Some people find this escape for their sorrows a blessing, as it relieves them of the pain knowing that people share it with him/her.

However, black is not always gloomy.

In art, op(optical) art is mainly using black and white. It creates strong contrast, making the work all the more appealing.

Black is also fashionable, as is any strong colour. Simple designs using geometric shapes are very appealing nowadays, and fierce hues give the dead garments life and energy. Vibrant tones, such as florescent yellow, orange and green need a more subdued colour to balance it out. The first choice? Black.

From the scientific point of view, black is the colour that absorbs and radiates heat the best. Many scientific experiments have come to a successful conclusion by utilising the unique properties of black. In other words, black is as invaluable to us as any other colour.

So, black is back.

By the way, I got my inspiration to write this from here.
