Che-Cheh's sandwich post
sure made me hungry.
Posted by Hedonistics Anonymous :: 8:59 pm ::
My favourite sandwich is tuna sandwich with sliced tomatoes, cheese and mustard.
But I'm equally happy just to eat a plain tomato sandwich with mustard.
i <3 mustard!
Once in Miri, I made a mustard sandwich for myself. Just bread and mustard. It was fun. At that moment, I really felt like a flat-out broke college student living on a loaf of bread and a bottle of mustard. It was fun to pretend.
I used to hate the smell of mustard, but then I discovered that the smell was just a camouflage for the delicious sharp sour and slightly bitterish taste that I crave so much. I love sour-tasting food.
And suddenly I'm craving for hot tomyam soup.

Confessions and rants of a hamster owner
This is what pet owners do when they're bored. They become their pet's paparazzi. But it is extremely difficult to photograph hamsters because they can move faster than Lindsay Lohan on coke.
PP Boy looking like a mini-kitty here. *smirk* Booty-cleaning yoga pose. Surprisingly, this is his favourite eating position. He would stuff his cheeks full with food, then run into his house or sand bath container, lie on his back, and start snacking away. Yes, that's is. Roll around in your litter box more. As if you aren't smelly enough already. Heh.
Sometimes I really hate pet shops in Kuching because it is impossible to find good hamster stuff. I have no choice but to use pine shavings for PP Boy although I know that pine causes respiratory problems in small animals because there aren't any other alternatives like paper or corncob bedding.

I also want to get some toys for PP Boy, but in Kuching, the only hamster toy available is the wheel or hamster ball. Oh, and the hamster in the picture above is (the late) Fufu, the most famous hamster in Singapore. I think he's using paper-based bedding which does not cause skin allergy and breathing problems in hamsters. And he's got some Japan-imported timothy grass in his cage too. Lucky boy.
There are no hamster treat sticks in Kuching. :(
These are hamster vitamins. The only hamster vitamins I've seen around are those that are added to the drinking water and they turn the water dark green. Like moss. Eww.
Will someone please open a KL/Singapore quality pet shop in Kuching?

Guys, meet my new dwarf hamster.
His name is PP Boy. At first I called him Baby, but the more *aromatic* he got, the more I started calling him PP Boy and the name just stuck.
I'm currently working on getting him toilet trained. The best part about PP Boy is that he is not a biter. He doesn't like being picked up and handled but he doesn't struggle or nip when he's in my hands. A couple of years back, I kept a satin albino dwarf hamster (those pure white ones with red eyes) and that one was a biter, and he was obsessed about doing marathons on the wheel. PP Boy is just about the opposite. He does some mild workout on the wheel at night but he's more contented taking naps and foraging for sunflower seeds. He's crazy about dried mealworms though. I'm planning to get him a small packet of dried alfalfa or timothy hay next week. Apparently hammies need their veggies too.

So vhen shall ve go clubbing, nu?
Today I saw a rainbow ring around the sun. According to some info found on the Net, the ring around the sun are ice crystals high in the atmosphere associated with cirrus clouds. When the ice crystals form at just the right size and orientation, they produce a halo around the sun.
Very Independence Day, no? However, half an hour later the halo was almost covered by clouds.
In a heroic effort to hunt down the perfect woven bag, MK and I made a stop at Vincci and although I told Skyler
that I don't like Vincci shoes because of their shoddy workmanship, these babies were just too pretty and affordable to pass up.
RM27.45 per pair. Sweet.
And there's a little woven centre strap thingy which I think is rather charming and Bottega-like, which of course makes me one very happy girl today.

Oh lord, I'm bored
Jalan Song is like my second home. It's probably the largest food centre in Kuching. Hungry but don't know what to eat? Just head to Jalan Song. This little food paradise is my second home at night.
This is just a teeny weeny fraction of the food stalls available. Btw, the sambal kerang here isn't good. IMHO, the BEST sambal kerang or sotong can be found at 3rd Mile (the stall outside Toyo Seafood). Tell the uncle to 'cha hiam hiam' for the extra spicy kick! Guaranteed to make your lips swell to rival Angelina Jolie's.
View of the top from the bottom.
Things to do to your friends when you have a camera phone and have absolutely nothing else to do. The victim chose to remain anonymous.
Btw, it IS possible to get chau tauhu (smelly beancurd) in Kuching! MK almost fainted from the taste when I offered a tiny piece to try, but I was slightly disappointed that the beancurd was just not stinky enough for my liking. Sigh.

Advice #1 pertains to blowjobs
This is the nice part of an evil chainmail (from the Anthony Robbins organization... wow) which demanded that I forward this message within 6 minutes "...otherwise you will get a very unpleasant surprise. This is true, even if you are not superstitious, agnostic, or otherwise faith impaired..."
Faith impaired indeed.
1. Give people more than they expect and do it cheerfully.
2. Marry a man/woman you love to talk to. As you get older, their conversational skills will be as important as any other.
3. Don't believe all you hear, spend all you have or sleep all you want.
4. When you say, "I love you," mean it.
5. When you say, "I'm sorry," look the person in the eye.
6. Be engaged at least six months before you get married.
7. Believe in love at first sight.
8. Never laugh at anyone's dream. People who don't have dreams don't have much.
9. Love deeply and passionately. You might get hurt but it's the only way to live life completely.
10. In disagreements, fight fairly. No name calling.
11. Don't judge people by their relatives.
12. Talk slowly but think quickly.
13. When someone asks you a question you don't want to answer, smile and ask, "Why do you want to know?"
14. Remember that great love and great achievements involve great risk.
15. Say "bless you" when you hear someone sneeze.
16. When you lose, don't lose the lesson .
17. Remember the three R's: Respect for self; Respect for others; and responsibility for all your actions.
18. Don't let a little dispute injure a great friendship.
19. When you realize you've made a mistake, take immediate steps to correct it.
20. Smile when picking up the phone. The caller will hear it in your voice.
21. Spend some time alone.
22. When 99.9% of your friends tell you that the guy you're dating is a parasite/dork/asshole and totally not worth your time, please take their advice and dump him immediately. And I seriously mean IMMEDIATELY. If you want to be delusional about the sorry state of your relationship, by all means do so. Just don't fucking call me up at 8:30am crying because you're disappointed with how your balding dickwad bf is treating you or some shit like that because I'M SOOOOOO NOT BUYING IT ANYMORE!! If you want my fucking advice, JUST PAY ME AND I'LL BE YOUR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP THERAPIST 24/7!!!
.... which brings us to advice #23.
23. Don't get involve with someone old enough to be your father.

Tales of the pots, the pets, and the nens
How I spent my weekend:
- Helped a friend source for a male stripper for someone's hen night, but the guy chickened out at the very last minute.
- Went for a girly mini-reunion thingy which I still have some beef about.
- Went hamster-hunting. Total number of petshops visited: 6
- Naz came to town so Thongs and I took him on an informal tour of the city.
- Bought my long-awaited can opener.
For some reason, the can opener at home seemed to be MIA. Ironically, the fruit peeler went forth and multiplied and at last count, there were FOUR fruit peelers in the kitchen drawer, but not a single can opener. Hmm.
Buying a can opener is high up on the list of grown-up things to do, along with the car, house, taxes, and life insurance.

So what does circumcised dick look like?
My colleague/toilet buddy MK is in Bangkok. She'll only be back on Tuesday. Sigh, toilet trips are so boring now.
Anyway, a few days ago, I dreamt about my ex (the good-looking Malay one). In my dream, he was with me, but at the same time being pursued left and right by so many other girls. There was a bunch of Chinese school girls who kept pushing a plate of chicken noodles to him. He kept refusing nicely and in the end I told those schoolgirls that he won't eat their food because it's not halal. Still, other girls kept coming up to him to ask him out, and even a friend of mine took his hand and offered to bring him elsewhere to eat.
Strangely, I wasn't jealous or angry. I just stood there with a "Hmmmm..." look on my face, watching the scene unfolding before me.
Moral of dream: Even if you're not rich or you have a shitty attitude, as long as you're good-looking, there'll definitely be tons of people lining up to date you.
My old high school classmate is back from Canada and she's arranging a girls get-together/steamboat dinner tomorrow night. I'm wearing a -______- expression on my face at the moment because I'm not huge fan of anything pertaining to high school (reunion, dinner, party, whatever). Speaking of which, I'll prolly be the only girl in the group tomorrow who'll be
- laughing in an unladylike manner
- cracking dirty jokes
- treated like a reverent sex therapist/guru/advisor

Gummi bears... jumping here and there and everywhere
Some people like Gummi bears.
I personally prefer Gummi worms.
Lime-flavoured wormie Cherry-flavoured wormie
There were cola-flavoured worms, but they're all gone. There were rootbeer-flavoured gummi nipples too, but they weren't very photogenic, so no pics.
I also randomly took pictures of my living room. Well, only my favourite areas.
I like the ceiling alot... ...and the bench, because I picked it out at Mivo.
My house is very white. The walls are white, the fence is white, the doors are white but I love it. It has a certain spartan showroom quality about it. And being so white, it's not exactly kid-friendly, but I don't care. I love minimalistic decor, because there's just so much blank space and like hell am I going to clutter the walls with pictures and clocks and whatnots.
A few things that made my house different from any other houses I've been to:
- My family NEVER displayed any photographs in the living room. Which is probably why once when I threw an illegal party a few years back, one girl asked my friend whether I had any parents.
- My family never hung a clock on the wall. Okay, we tried once in the dining room, but the damn clock kept falling down, so in the end we relied on our watches and handphones to tell the time.
- The Astro decoder is in the master bedroom upstairs, so whenever someone downstairs wants to change the channel, he/she have to go upstairs to do so. Alternately, you can yell for someone upstairs to change the channel, but it gets pretty rowdy when your original intention was to channel surf.
Me: *yells from downstairs* OY, CHANGE CHANNEL!!
Sis: *yells from upstairs* HAIYA!!
Me: HURRY UP!!
Sis: HAIYA WAIT LAH!!
Sis: WHAT CHANNEL YOU WANT??
Sis: CHANGE ALREADY!!
*two seconds later*
Me: DON'T WANT HBO, NOT NICE!!
Sis: THEN WHAT YOU WANT??
Sis: CHANGE LIAO!!
Me: DON'T WANT CINEMAX, TRY STAR MOVIES!!
Me: CHANGE TO AXN!!
Me: CHANNEL 17!! 17!!
Sis: I'M GOING TO THE TOILET!!
Me: HOII!! DON'T YOU DARE, OK?? YOU STAND STILL AND CHANGE CHANNEL FOR ME!!

People come, people go
I accompanied Miss Thongs
on Saturday to go bridal shopping and after that we went to the Causeway Bay Hong Kong restaurant at Crown Towers.
The fried carrot cake there is to die for. It's slightly spicy and it literally MELTS in your mouth. Simply delicious.
The baked cheese rice (RM9.90) is as good as those at Kim Gary, or maybe better. We tried the one with fish and the cheese was sooooooo good. According to Miss Thongs, they put three different types of cheese in the rice - cheddar, mozzarella, and I can't quite recall the last one... parmesan?
The best part of the cheese is obviously the dark brown part. Slightly burnt and crispy, Miss Thongs taught me the art of chipping the cheese away from the aluminum foil using chopsticks. Haha.
Anywayyyyyy, my cousin Irene
tagged me. Obviously she's recovering nicely from her oh-so-fatal bout of flu/cough/sorethroat/whatever. Bitch.
5 things found in your bag:
- Small mirror
- Fisherman's Friend Sugar-free Mint Lozenges
- Thumbdrives (I have three)
- Mini handkerchiefs (fancy name for tissue paper)
Obviously those who know me well will know that I carry around a million other things in my bag.
5 things found in your purse/wallet:
- Credit cards
- Passport-sized photo of myself
- Driving license
Not to mention tons of receipts, ATM statements, name cards, discount cards, pocket calendars...
5 favourite things in your room:
- My baobei notebook (the most expensive thing in my room).
- My new Neil Gaiman novel 'Fragile Things'which I'm currently reading.
- My bed
- My bolster
- My self-pleasuring device
5 things you're currently into:
- Grilled sambal kerang (clams) so spicy that they leave you with numb, swollen lips and an immediate craving for more.
- Revamping my novel collection. I need more of Neil Gaiman's works.
- Getting a hamster but I'm disgusted with lack of hamster equipment available in Kuching pet shops.
- I don't know what else.
- I live a very dull life.
5 people you will tag:
- You who's reading this
- Your mother
- Your father
- Your grandmother
- Your grandfather's first girlfriend

Was driving to work this morning when I saw three jaw-droppingly hotbodied guys jogging up Park Lane.
Me: OMGGGGG!!!!! I THINK I JUST SAW MY BREAKFAST, LUNCH AND DINNER!!!!!!
In another world, Deedee the pug is getting much better. She attempted to bite the vet during her second check-up. Yay.

Popped into Popular bookstore during lunch to buy some stationery when I came across the bargain corner and couldn't resist browsing through some of the titles on offer.
In the end I bought these two babies. The one of the right is by Neil Gaiman and it only cost RM10.90 after a massive 70% discount! *happy happy* The one on the left I've never heard before but it cost RM10.95 after discount. Oh well, I need my book fix like a junkie needs his high.
Anyway, here's MK's pug Deedee. Poor Deedee was scalded horribly a a few weeks ago when a pot of boiling syrup fell on her. She suffered near third-degree burns on her back and needed to be shaved. Under all that fur, her skin resembles charred meat but she's healing nicely.
I adore Deedee more when she's an invalid because she's so quiet and docile and I can pinch her cheeks and ruffle her head and she'll just lie there calmly. This is the same bitch who freely snapped at big-sized guys (she doesn't like guys) and, on her bad days, practically everyone was fair game. She's a pocket-sized T-Rex disguised in a wrinkly dog suit.
Deedee, please don't get well too soon. You're so much sweeter (and smellier) this way.

Calm in the eye
Chatterbox disabled, comment moderation in place.
Now let's see how this works out.
I'm thinking of removing Haloscan and reimplementing Blogger's comment features but I really couldn't be arsed to fiddle around with the codes in my templates. Comment moderation is a real pain, but it's probably the best solution for now.
I'm just not in the mood to embrace my paparazzi yet, no matter how much they all want a piece of me. *smirks*
And Miss Thongs, if you're reading this, the kerangs are sooooo calling, dammit.

Sometimes I wish I could protect my blog from mean-spirited comments and but I know it's near impossible unless I disable the chatterbox and comment posting, WHICH I don't think I want to because, well, I just don't.
Anyway, to whoever that mentioned that my B and I don't conform to today's beauty standards, all I have to say is, your mother probably wished she left you in the Rentokil bin together with all the rotting, stinking sanitary pads and tampons after she swallowed a kilo of mothballs in a sorrowful attempt to abort you. At least she was truthful in naming you after a certain brand of lubricant. Or was she dumb enough to think that KY Jelly was a cheap form of spermicide? Oh well, I guess she'll have to pay for her sins as long as you're alive.
Maybe I shall disable the chatterbox and moderate my comments. Too much negativity in the world today, too many whores naming their offspring after lubricants (I sense there's someone out there named Top Gel or Astroglide), too many shitheads, too little brains.
