A Sweet Gooly-mo'

Before I begin my story, a Big KOLO MEE BIRTHDAY WISH shoutout to Ehon, a brilliant Kuchingite in Brisbane! Tried to look for a kolo mee cupcake for u but failed... :p Have a good one, mate! ;-)

Okay, so sometime last week, I had a very pleasant experience at the local supermarket near my place. Wanted to get a shopping trolley and there were lots of trolleys available, 3 rows in all. But there was a big problem... all of 'em seem to be 'stuck'! Yup, S.T.U.C.K., and me being the si lembik that I am, failed to pull out any from all the 3 rows. Can you imagine me, using all my limbs (yes, my kakis tangans), trying to release the 'stuck' trolleys, while carrying my big sling bag? Thinking back, big possibility I looked very Mr. Bean in that half a minute.. -__-'''

So, there I was, a damsel in distress, looking desperate and helplessly at the many trolleys available but  failed to get one on my hands. However, some lucky stars must have shone on me that day... ying hung gao mei... [translation: hero to the rescue, a damsel in distress... more or less lah!]

While I was struggling trying to release one of the trolleys, from the corner of my eye, I saw a boy who was doing the same. At most, he's about 6-7 years young. Suddenly, I saw that he managed to release 2 trolleys. Inside me I was thinking, "Shit lah! Small boy oso more powderfool than me! How can?!" And while I was having that thought inside me, the Little Gentleman™ said to me in Mandarin, "Here's one for you."

And what did I do?

I smiled and went, "Ohhh! THANK YOU!" And I smiled summore.

I saw his face. He had that Happy Boy™ face... a very satisfied-with-himself kinda face.

Abuthen seconds later, came another bigger boy who took his trolley away... alamak... by then I was already about 5-6 steps away from him... but I think the Little Gentleman™ didn't mind... not even one bit...

After about a minute or so, the incident was seen flashing a few times at the back of my mind And I thought to myself (again), "Hey, I just had a darn schweet Gooly-mo!(ment)" Our Little Gentleman™ reminded me of Gooly the Gentleboy who jumped into the pond to 'save' the girl's wallet.

From that moment on, I was pretty convinced, that chivalry is most probably inborn. I mean, how can you teach a young child, that when you see an auntie struggling to get herself a trolley, that when  you manage to get one yourself, you should offer one of the trolleys to auntie? How? How? Can teach meh? *shakes head* Donch think so... But I also think that parents play a big role in instilling good values... [ok ok, who am I to talk abt parents, instill good values blablabla...]

When I related the incident to mom, she smiled and said, "Ohhh, what a caring boy!"

Caring... so yeah, we need more Goolypops in the world!

Sunday's Sky Sharing

Mr. Lee shared his Kota Damansara evening sky over here and it reminded me of what I've captured sometime back.. one was last week, and the other one, last October...

The Butterfly upon the Sky,
That doesn't know its Name
And hasn't any tax to pay
And hasn't any Home
Is just as high as you and I,
And higher, I believe,
So soar away and never sigh
And that's the way to grieve -- 
~Emily Dickinson~

about pirated stuff & chen's birthday

I was very shocked to read this, posted by someone in Facebook: (C & P)

Please do not keep any pirated or burned CDs, DVDs, or VCDs in your car. 
Police and Domestic Trade & Consumer Affairs Ministry's enforcement  division in Malaysia have started the operation to search and fine anyone who keep pirated disc inside their car especially through road block at all main road and expressways.

If any pirated or burned disc found inside your car will be charged RM400 per disc. Example 30 discs found means the fine will be RM12,000.

One of the Plexus colleague brother-in-law caught by Police due to pirated CD in the car on the way to town for lunch with his friend in the afternoon. One CD fined RM400...oh no..

Please disseminate this to all your friends who are driving in Malaysia ! 

I cannot confirm how far this is true but knowing our cuntree... anything's possible.. sigh!!

*fast fast go and take out CDs from the car*

Last but not least, many happy
returns of the day to Chen Sotong!

Okay, an 'update' about the Singaporean Couple Drama:

A MAN caught on video being hit in the private parts by his girlfriend with her high-heel shoe, is a director of an international property company.

Nanyang Siang Pau reported that the couple had been dating for two years. A person who claimed to be the couple's friend contacted the media after the video clip was widely circulated on the Internet and the news was reported in local newspapers.

The friend said the 41-year-old man was among the top 10 agents in the company and due to his excellent performance, was appointed as director of a department overseeing more than 100 agents.

 "He is good looking, wears glasses and looks younger than his real age."

"He drives a big car, lives in condominium and is popular among the women," the friend said, adding that the man was divorced and has a daughter. 

The friend said the 21-year-old woman was a receptionist at the property company two years ago. However, she did not last long as she often wore sexy dresses and received numerous warnings from the Human Resources Department. Since then, she has not worked and depends on the boyfriend.

The person who posted the comment the other day also posted this later on:

Humans are equipped with a finely tuned intuition to smell cracks in a relationship. Some relationships can sometimes feel suffocating. Somehow ppl don't really change deep down, and can't change their ways to accomodate the other. Irreconcilable differences, tensions, personality clashes are sheer purgatory. In the circumstances it's best to call it quits - in the interests of both parties - than to be stuck with an unsuitable partner along with a lifelong union of irreconcilable conflicts. Cool down, leave your options open and keep in touch with your psychiatrist/counsellor always. Keep your end up!

Man Got Hit (Hard) By Lady in Singapore

By now, everyone must have seen the video of this Singapore guy who got hit in the groin and slapped repeatedly. (The above video has got some funny captions abt the incident :p)

I read some forums and so far, I think this guy gave the best comment:

He's a picture of meekness, even misery. Let's assume for the sake of argument that the man has done a grave wrong, say an act of infidelity. Somehow she got wind of it and lashed out at him like an attacking crocodile. Some feel her aggressive behaviour is justified while many others find it most appalling.

Let me relate my own harrowing experiences. Being caught with my trousers down was a real downer. To start with my loved-up gf was aghast by the discovery that I'd copped off with someone behind her back and she did the unthinkable. Sobbing hysterically, she threatened to slash her own neck with a kitchen knife.

Almost as a reflex action, I lunged forward and made a grab for the sharp knife she was holding. Thank goodness none of us was hurt. On a separate occasion, another steady gal of mine cracked up for the same reason. She literally took a massive overdose of sleeping pills and almost never woke up.

They're all women but that's where the similarity ends. Under extreme stress or pressure, different women react differently - just as each of us have differing ideas on how an emotionally charged woman ought to behave. It's so easy for armchair critics to moralize but when the emotion segment of an infuriated or upset woman's (or man's) brain is engaged, there's no telling how she'll react or overreact.

So it's not a point of how she should respond in a frenzied situation but rather how she will react according to her genetic make-up. Some may unleash like the enraged woman in the picture while some sweetie - if you're lucky enough - may just hug you tightly, almost suffocating you, as she pleads with you not to forsake her. Most, however, plunge into deep depression which means you've got a lot of explanation to do.

In short, ppl differ from one another in their ability to handle stress. reported this:

A man who was caught on video being hit my a woman repeatedly without retaliating is a director of a local property firm, said Lianhe Wanbao.
According to the Chinese evening dailies, he drives a flashy car and stays in a condominium.
Last week, videos of the incident were published in AsiaOne, in which it showed him standing still while his girlfriend used her shoe to smack him repeatedly in the groin and face.

There'll be a 'full' report later on... wait I update u ols ah...

Danyl Johnson

People are asking, is Danyl Johnson, 27, a teacher, the next Susan Boyle? (If you wanna see the original upload on Youtube, this is the link. I couldn't find any good videos on youtube to be embedded here)

OK lah, maybe someone will say Sungha Jung is better...


*addendum @ 10.30pm*
Danyl was interviwed in NBC's Today show:

Each time I click on "New Post", my mind goes blank... apa ni????? Cis... But then, when I'm not in front of the computer, I have so many things in my mind... I am probably not cut out to be a blogger anymore... It's also thanks to all the addictive Facebook games, my TVB AND Mediacorp dramas, not forgetting all the DVDrips that I have downloaded and sitting prettily in my hard disk... I need more than 24 hours in a day!

Of 3 Sides To A Story & Some Japanese Laughter

Just the other day, a friend posted this on his Facebook status: ~ there are always 3 sides to a story. his side. her side. and the truth...

How true... So, I consulted my Best Friend Mr. Google to see who was the original author of this 'quote', and this ezine article hit the number one spot. It's a very short article, but this is the first sentence: "One of the major causes of relationship breakdowns is the issue of communication."

And this:

"Communication is the foundation of ever human relationship. If your communication isn't open, honest, clear and congruent there will always leave room for assumptions, misunderstanding and any number of potential conflicts that can tear relationships apart at the seams."

Okay, this is just me trying to get into the 'groove' of updating this blog and yes, I have a reason... Oh well... we shall see if my Lazy Butt will cooperate with my Itchy Mind...

Last but not least, you MUST see this really funny clip of a Japanese game show. Another friend posted this video on Facebook. I searched hi and low for the version with English subtitles, in youtube and found it. I just love the Japanese gilaness when it comes to game shows! Totemo daisuki!

After some 'research', this game show is called Gaki no Tsukai. This is their Facebook page! Really lawaklah these Nihonjins!
