He ain't heavy, he's my brother.

Monday, August 31, 2009

I don't know what special meaning is behind that popular phrase.
But my brother IS heavy.


Meet Christopher, the rebellious, cheeky, mischievous, chubby, annoying, 10 year old.

He has been sick these few days, vomiting and stomachache.
So he has not been able to eat anything good lately.

One day (hehe), we (family) brought our grandparents to a lovely Chinese restaurant.

He couldn't resist the temptation any longer :mBerangan:
My mother couldn't take it anymore :mHantuk:

*Nice lotus dish is served*
Chris: Can I have that?
Mom: No.
*Plain meehoon soup is served*
Mom: This is yours.
Chris: HAH?! I don't like.
Mom: You're sick, cannot eat what we eat. You can only eat the meehoon.
Chris: But I don't want!
Mom: Then don't eat!!
*Mouth-watering spicy sotong is served*
Chris: That one leh?
Dad: Of course cannot lah, it's spicy. We didn't order your share. Just eat the meehoon lah.
*Delicious ginger fish " "*
Chris: I want fish.
Mom: CANNOT.
*Butter crab " "*
Chris: *Licking his lips, with eyes wide open*
Carmen: I know what you're thinking Kit子(we call him that). Cannot eat.
Chris: You're saying that because you can eat more mah.
Carmen: NO, it's for your own good (but partly thinking she can eat more too!)
*We all took some crab*
Chris: Can I have the crab arm? The small one?
Mom: No.
Chris: Please, I will only take the small one!
Mom: NO!
Chris: Then can I have the 'zap' (sauce)?
Mom: *ignores him*
*Minutes later*
Chris: Can have I a bit?
Mom: *continue ignoring*
*A few more minutes later*
Chris: Please lah, I want the small one only.
Grandma: Aiya nevermind lah, see him like that, give him one more lah (in Canto).
Mom: Aiya ok lah ok lah, cannot eat the sauce.
Chris: *smiles and greedily takes the crab*
*After finishing..*
Chris: Can I have one more?
Carmen: Kit子, you talk too much lah.
Chris: Next time I get well, we come here again and eat crab. Don't bring you along.
Carmen: I'm not talking to you anymore.
Dad: Don't so bad lah, bring jeh jeh lah.
Chris: Okay, but she can only eat one small crab part.
Carmen: :pandaGeli_10:
(But of course I did not stab him with a knife. I just ignored him, though I wanted to.)

Haha, so what have we learned from the conversation?

Never give up. Keep being annoying.
In the end, the other party won't be able to stand you any longer:mSurrender:

This is Christopher's secret tactic to getting what he wants. And most of the time, he succeeds.

I think now, I know where the phrase, "Oh Brother!" (used to express surprise, annoyance, or disappointment) came from.

20 But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal.
21For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Matthew 6:19-21


Did nothing special on Merdeka Day.
But I got a book!


"Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj" by cartoonist, E. Yu



So cute right? It's funny too.

If you're looking for any books to read, buy this :)

My newfound loves.

Friday, August 28, 2009

I can't believe I'm having a fever again. It has been twice in 2 weeks! But, this time it's the suffering kind. The hot-and-cold, weak, no appetite one. Must be my brother 'yeh dou' me.
Fever chain: Carmen >> Christopher >> Carmen




















Oh no.. I have fever, nausea, lethargy and lack of appetite. AHHHHHHH!!!!

I am just scaring myself.. but this is serious stuff, I already have half of the complete list of symptoms of H1N1. I should check with the doc tomorrow :mFlu:

I have two new loves :pandaGeli_09:


No. 1:
UDON :mLove:

This delectable noodles is chewy and it's not too heavy for the stomach like other noodles too.
Yeah I know, it's a very unusual thing to like.





No. 2:
OPUS
Astro: Channel 862 :mGelak:

Dunno why, I'm not attracted to rap & rock music (the modern music of the world), classical and oldies are my kind of music.
Yala yala, I'm lame lah :P





Reading back my old posts from 2-4 years ago.. goshhhhh, I feel so paiseh/embarassed. Lol, I posted so many "eek UH-HUH" things.

Internet is driving me mad man. Transfer/download rate is so slow!!!
I'm using the new beta version of the new blog editor. Some things like the new picture uploader very mafan already.. but there are other cool things, like:

WASSSUPPP!! (highlighting)
Ok well, that's the only new thing in the editor besides the picture uploader.
But I think I shall stay with the old editor for now.
GOT MA EMOTICONS BACK!

FOOTER. for. today:









314 days to download a stinking one hour thing :mDarah: must be some virus.

OK Carmen feels like vomiting now :pandaGeli_05:

I need a getaway..

Tuesday, August 25, 2009

I'm craving for a vacation at a place rich with flora and beaches..
I want to see the infinite glorious blue sky above my head..
The tall green coconut trees beside me..
The silken sand under me..
The undulate sea with its huge powerful waves..
The white cottony clouds..
I shall read an interesting book, at the peaceful uncrowded breezy beach..
Drink fruit punch from some hut..

Crowded, dirty beaches *cough*Malaysian beaches*cough* are so noisy and distracting. Everyone's occupying the air and space. Where's your privacy and tranquility, man?

Thus, the new layout was born. Blue background (sky & sea) and beigy-brownish border (sand).
The old one was nice, but it was giving me too many problems.

Oh sweet serenity..

Typical Hakka wedding

I attended this relative's wedding just a few weeks ago.. it was a Hakka wedding! And coincidentally, the groom's name is called Christopher. Just like my bro! So before the wedding, we kept teasing him.. saying that he was getting married. He got annoyed :\
I was like the official photographer of the weddding!


Preparing for the wedding~


The scariest thing happened. There was this little boy (picture above).. who was suppose to open the car door (Chinese tradition) but he was too afraid to do it. So I (the 2nd youngest there) had to do it!! No picture of me opening the door, cause I was holding the camera. You should've seen me!!!


Bride & groom :P (this pic was taken before I opened the door)


It was so cute that they prayed.. the bride wasn't a Christian so she was opening her eyes looking around.. so disrespectful!


Then we have the usual tea serving ceremony..


Don't get it wrong.. I wasn't giving the angpow to the groom (why would I?). He was giving it to me after I served them tea (the juniors are suppose to serve them tea and receive angpow $)..

WEDDING DINNER!


:)


The both of them posing for a pic before walking into the dinner hall.


Their church's worship team sang a few gospel songs before the dinner was served.

My favourite part of the whole wedding!







Then they had their yam seng and so on..






I'm so proud of my heritage!

Do I have H1N1?

Tuesday, August 18, 2009

I already have the flu and the fever.
Uh-oh.

H1N1 song xD Such a stupid, but funny video.
Using Wonder Girl's Nobody MV.


So if I don't attend school tomorrow, you know why.
Oh my, heard that Pamela is infected with H1N1! Hope she feels better soon :)

This is the thing that has killed many many people.



If I'm not mistaken, the death toll for H1N1 in M'sia has reached 65. Pengetua says that makes us no. 10 highest recorded death toll in the world!

I made some icons from Hannah Montana: The Movie. Thanks Pan for borrowing the DVD. It's been quite some time since I last touched Photoshop.

Fabulous English

Thursday, August 6, 2009

Welcome to English 101.

Today, we will be focusing on the back of a plastic case of a protractor.



1. Was? Does that mean it is not easy to burning now?

2. Aloof the high temperature?!

3. Please. It's aloof. (Being sarcastic here..)

4. Beget any danger xD

5. Product's definition distort? Oh, so it might not be something used to measure and draw angles.

6. LOL, some keenness part. Since when do protractors have keen parts? And what is a keen part?

7. AHAHA.. the protractor needs to avoid bruises.

8. Befit measure and study.

9. Unable to do other definition's measure?
