The Week That Has Been...

One word sums it up. Busy!!!

Nonetheless, I feel a 'need' to write to you. I had a chat last night with a friend who's in a dilemma. You know, most of the time when we feel that we are torn between choices, in actual fact, we already know what the answer is or what we want... We just need some kind of support from our peers, don't you agree?

Anywayyyy, whilst Emperor LB was busy chasing his concubines dressed in blue blue tei, red red tei, green green tei, purple tei, pink pink tei, rainbow tei saris, round and round the coconut trees, rolling uphill & downhill (and probably into the pool) after his dose of Bollywood's Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, I had the opportunity to watch this classic, Breakfast at Tiffany's, starring the ever glamorous Audrey Hepburn (so beautiful can die!) & George Peppard (good looking man!).



For those who have not had the chance to watch this movie, you must be wondering, why Tiffany's? Why breakfast? Haa... Actually, I also don't know why... It's only at the beginning of this movie where Hepburn was shown getting down from a taxi one early morning (I assume it's in the morning because the place was deserted), making her way to Tiffany's (yes, THE jewelry shop). She was outside the shop, gazing at the jewelry on display, then munching on some food, which I guess, could be doughnut (or some bun), and having her coffee at the same time. So there, that's Breakfast At Tiffany's. And what do I like about this scene? Moon River! The song that has been playing in my mind for more than 100x since Monday night! Here, check out Hepburn doing the song on this youtube video that I found.


Moon River, wider than a mile,
I'm crossing you in style some day.
Oh, dream maker, you heart breaker,
Wherever you're going I'm going your way.
Two drifters off to see the world;
There's such a lot of world to see.
We're after the same rainbow's end,
Waiting 'round the bend,
My huckleberry friend, Moon River and me.

This conversation in the movie reminds me of Zewt's entry about girls, guys, love & money:

Holly Golightly (Hepburn) : I'll tell you one thing, Fred, darling... I'd marry you for your money in a minute. Would you marry me for my money?
Paul Varjak (Peppard) : In a minute.
Holly Golightly (Hepburn) : I guess it's pretty lucky neither of us is rich, huh?
Paul Varjak (Peppard) : Yeah.

You mean we can't have true love without money? Nah, of course not. And then ahmay told us about the story of the 57 year old lady, who was too busy with work (chasing $) when she was younger yadda yadda yadda, and now, going through divorce, and will be on her own. Hmmm... money again... Money, the root of all evil? And here, Bryan says that we can make $$ without effort, just need capital (read $$$). Everything also $$$... I've been watching a lot of E! Entertainment Channel lately and my oh my, I'm envious of people like Ivanka Trump, Athina Roussel Onassis who are called Trust Fund Babies. But of course, life ain't a bed of roses for them... but then but then....

I feel very cheong hei today because I want to let off steam. I must do more Pom Chak Chak taught by Cikgu ehon from Adelaide... Anyway, the idiotic major Internet Service Provider company already took 2 weeks to "work on" my complaint and today, someone from their "Follow-Up Dept" gave me a tinkle to "confirm" my complaint. (Apa nie??) You see, I'm having download problems with one particular ftp server located in LA. Oh, BTW, this account is a corporate account and we pay nearly RM700 every month for the 2MB line, okay. Can faint, right?? Anyway, I'm not satisfied with their replies (Each time I e-mail to follow-up, they take 2 days to reply to me...) and was thinking of writing an e-mail to the CEO. But I'm sure he won't be reading e-mails from this particular e-mail account found in their corporate website.... but you think I can get the problem solved faster if I did that?

That's all for now... cau cincauuu!

L B said...

I wanna do an encore of my earlier twitter:

Angel, I want to talk to you as a baby now.. Your voice is so piercingly true, the highs so high, the lows so bass! So treble! So mid-range! Do you use Titanium Tweeters? What brand of toothpaste do you use? How many heads are there on your toothbrush? Do you gargle? Or do you swallow? Di larang spit..

I just love the way you say Katherine Hepburn.. I think you really have such beautiful guts too.. I think I need dinner.

L B said...

Love without money is good too.. You just don't get to sail on the Mediterranean on your own yacht waiting the sunsets..

L B said...

*waiting*?!!!

angel said...

Hahahaahha!!!
POM CHAK CHAK!!!

I thot u went for dinner liao...

angel said...

Bwahahahhaha!!! I love your comments! So YATTA, so PCC... so KKHH...

But hor... I didn't ask you to ask me questions like ehon wor... You salah blog liao :p

But I shall answer whatever I can, just for u...
I use Colgate... I gargle with Listerine... I dun spit, I swallow... Swallow is good... can make my face as smooth as Hepburn's... My knees went weak when I saw Hepburn... she's sooo beautiful...

Katherine Hepburn?! OK, you really need dinner liao... U like the "ever glamorous" part or the "so beautiful can die" part?

Love without Money is no good... No Money, No Honey... yeah, now you know why ah nel no like me and always perli me, pijak me, call me Pork and all... cos I'm $$$-minded...

*pom chak chak pom chak chak*

mistipurple said...

i kena slapped kaw kaw this month and last month with a S$890 and S$1200 bill for office's broadband. and of course i wouldn't know how that happened. the *ahem* company had a list of the days when the excessive d/loading occured but of course i have no inkling of how it was derived at. and nooooo.. there is no way of checking! pfft.

last time we kena kaw kaw phone bill also (in those $$$$ too!). same case, every 2 seconds kena billed for sms from overseas. think can dispute? naaaahhh..

sorri talk so long here, so sienz about these stoopig bills. changed phone line and now, changed broadband plan. damaged done though. *faints and cannot get up*

angel said...

Dear misti,

*brings plink's skunkie*

Heh?? Your broadband plan not fixed rate wan ka? Ours is fixed rate, no matter how much we d/l or u/l...

Why cannot dispute?? That's baaad... donwan to pay, cannot? So unfair...

No sorries... can talk as long as u want... ;)

*admires the new hairdo... & tooth*
*checks out the sparkle*

L B asked, what toothpaste u use?

mistipurple said...

my house unlimited plan. before was dial-up.
office didn't realised after changing to broadband, was volume based. so one day, someone in opic downloaded only one day kaw kaw, then the surge. after that, never liao, still surge kaw kaw until i hin hin see bill. thought one month over, then this month saw bill $1998. because earlier one haven't paid cos now only due. pengsaned but revived after Plink's skunkie.. and called them dispute.
they offer discount but must upgrade to unlimited plan. i no choice lor. *hin-hin still*

LB want to know what toothpaste i use?? *hin-hin reply.. Colgate*
don't know why oso. is it very shiny he can see from italy ah? i everyday open mouth and grin in his direction wan..

angel said...

Dear misti,

*brings fong yao*

I see $2000 Broadband bill, I also hin liao... how can??? That's ridiculous! But then, our corporate account one month RM700, also a bit ridiculous...

So how much is the unlimited plan now? A few hundred dollars too? *whisper* Sing and Tel arr?

Colgate shiny meh? I think Darlie is shinier... the Darlie man is blek karer, but the tooth is soooo white... sure he can see fr Italy...

U only open your mouth in his direction ah? I thot got O P E N something else tim... kkkk...

mistipurple said...

$98 unlimited. sienz. pengsan again. kia si lang hor? every month i usually pay less than 100 to 200 at most. that includes 3 lines somemore. not handphone(s). that one under other bills. also can pengsan that one.
hehe. i now go zzZ and OPeN in your direction and His direction also can? can?? hahaha. nitenite sweetie! xxx

angel said...

Dear misti,

$98 unlimited is still ok kua... but the service better be good lor... I listen to your bills, I also can pengsan... and guess what... it's Paying Bills time again! Pay pay pay... get salary, pay bills... aiyoh... how liddat?

ehon said...

*pom chak chak pom chak chak*

lol!!! waiseh. got summary. FINALLY you update. haihs. i hari hari datang also takde update.

Blogline is the fastest feeder in my opinion. Google Reader is too slow. Haihs. But I use that too.

And when your album coming out? LB alrdy sign contract with you anot?

may said...

*aik, my komen gone!! grrrr...*
*I said...*

it's the classics week! I have Casablanca sitting in my Mac waiting to be watched. probably this weekend when I'm not so tired, I tend to zzz when I watch TV these nights...

pssst... too much KKHH and Simon Cowell impersonation by LB, until Katharine Hepburn come out pulak instead of Audrey... his brain must've been starving too! kkkkk! *cabut*

JL said...

mmm hou kek hei...

yum pui char sek kor pau and do the pom chak chak thingy :)

Huei said...

"dream maker, you heart breaker"

aye..my ISP oso kanasai! broadband with the speed of dialup, i email them twice only they decided to respond >.< (it's Maxshit) =P

cutiepie said...

well, my boss he did some nyamuk pusing complaint on Proton and that night the CEO called him .. *jaw drop* so now he is getting all the fuss fixed .. so try lorrrrrr .. *muuacckkkssss*

kat said...

Yes, you must write to the head of the company. Provided, of course this company places importance on customer service. If the boss not kancheong, you think the mahchai will or not?

My phone bill dispute from Dec 06 until now, still haven't settle yet. I ask them to investigate for me, they never get back to me. And they dare send reminder asking me to pay up! Go fly kite-lah! I am not going to chase them. If they still haven't given me an explanation by the time I leave, they can cut off my line for all I care!!

*pom..chak..chak, pom..chak..chak... in slow Moon River beat*

I have this song in my phone. You want?

savante said...

But that has to be one of my favourite movies of all time. How could you not love the sweet, earnest Peppard in that movie?

narrowband said...

I tak pernah tengok that movie le :( I have heard about it, I know audrey hepburn starred and all, but I've not watched it b4.... Therefore I kenot relate d song to d movie.. *sad*

aiyah nonya said...

I love that movie too. Moon River is so dreamy. I am waiting for a ring from Tiffany. I guess I am also chasing a rainbow's end. :)

Re your conplains - do sent in one complaint email to the CEO. You have nothing to loose. Still no response sent in some more or to the newspaper.
This is what most S'poreans do. Complaint Kings and Queens. If they are not happy with the service complain to the boss or to the company. Verbally, emails, written. Which ever method you use they will sure to reply. If they don't reply more complains will come in. And the person/department whose service you are dissatified with will kena.

S'pore is very customer orientated. Customer comes first.

Do you think this method will work in KL ?

Anyway, no matter what do remember to rest no matter how busy you are. Go to the spa to destress.

Take it easy...

zewt said...

hepburn.... must be a damn old film eh? anyway, i think i have heard those lines before... in a more recent movie, i think they recycle the script or something.

oh... one thing... no money... no marry... wedding cost a bomb!

I love Hepburn! She's like THE Hollywood star, IMHO, compared to the current crop of starlets.

"... wherever you're going, I'm going your way... two drifters, off to see the world, there's such a lot of world to see..."
