Of Marvel’s The Avengers

The highly anticipated movie of the year is gonna reach Malaysian shores on 27 April 2012! However, thanks to Nuffnang, I might just get to watch it a day earlier than everyone else!

The Avengers...ready to take over the world! Meet Captain America, Iron Man, Giant Man, Thor and Hulk.

Now, there can never be too many superheroes to save this crazy world we live in, would there? Off to the world of imagination, what superhero would I be if I could create a new member for The Avenger's team? I would be none other than...Mr.Bump! He is huge, gets into accidents all the time but NEVER FAILS TO SMILE! Talk about being positive.That also means he ENJOYS getting hurt. No matter how many accidents he gets into, he doesn't seem to die either which makes him immortal. What more could a superhero need? Check out the size comparison below compared to the actual Avenger's team.

The Avengers meet Mr. Bump

Just one swipe of the hand (and his megawatt smile) is enough to knock down the whole Avengers team! Saving the world would be just too easy for Mr. Bump.

Winning and smiling!

Unfortunately, as fantastic and cuddly as Mr. Bump is, I don't think he will make it into this year's movie (probably because the rest of the Avengers would just be sitting on the sidelines while he takes over the world). Watch the official trailer here:

All hail Mr. Bump! Aye Aye Aye!

Of The Friendliest Day of the Year

It is.....*drumroll*

Patrick's Day!!! Nooooo, wait a min...
It is

This famous green festival is celebrated every March 17th, commemorating St. Patrick's religious feast day and also the anniversary of his death in the fifth century. This year is no different! With great music and people dancing on the streets whilst linking arms, it is indeed the the friendliest day of the year.

National Hug Day actually fell on 21 January 2012 but in the spirit of being the super friendly girl I am *ahem*, I will still be giving FREE HUGS to anyone who comes up to me during The Friendliest Day of the Year: St. Pat's Day and says "WHERE IS MY HUG".

Date: 17th March 2012
Time: 6:00pm - 12:00am (or until you have puked your guts out...remember, responsible drinking!)
Where: Changkat Bukit Bintang

Do not end up from being like this:

Of McDonalds

Have you ever wondered why Maccas's ketchup packets are always "crumpled" up whereas the chilli sauce packets always lay flat?

Of funny insults

We were eating at Pavilion one day and one of the waiters who served us was a little short in the teeth department and looked somewhat like this:

KB being KB, then belted out this song (the chorus) into my ear:


All I want for Christmas 
is my two front teeth
my two front teeth
see my two front teeth!

Following the song, he then asked "Eh then how does he eat kuaci ah"

Of the best company trip EVER

The last time I went on a cruise was 15 years ago with my family and that was on one of the teeny weeny ships. THIS time, however, it was with awesome people, awesome food and awesome view on an awesome ship - all thanks to none other than our awesome bosses, Tim and Ming! Ship departed from Singapore > Port Klang > Phuket > Singapore.

Waking up to this every morning is just...surreal.

Erm, kind of a failed attempt at spelling "P-H-U-K-E-T" with our arms and legs :|

One of the ice-breaking games we played was 2 truths and a lie:

Best part of this game is that we, being a mix from the Singapore and Malaysia offices, got to learn about each other more. However, the most horrific 2 truths and a lie came from Firdy (surprise surprise):

1. My brother caught a baby crow and gave it to me
2. I used the baby crow as an elastic shooting target until it died
3. I buried its body, dug it out the next day, and barbecued it in a big flame

Guess which is the lie?!?!
No 1. He caught the crow himself!
...sick Firdy.

On a happier note, meet my not-so-secret Santa, Clara! She revealed her Secret Santa identity to everyone on the Nuffie mailing list by hitting the "reply all" button when she was only supposed to reply to Rina! HAHAHA. She even tried to recall that email but...too late.

Another game we played during the trip was:

This is one awesome game which would undoubtedly turn into a shouting match. This game was actually chosen by Mensa International in 1999 as a "Mensa Select" prizewinner, an award given to five games each year (source: Wikipedia). Basically, the judge (each player takes turns to be a judge) draws a green card on which is printed an adjective ("scary", "adorable", "manly", etc.), and places it face-up for everybody to see. Then each player (except the judge) is given seven red cards (on which are printed a noun) and chooses one card that they think is the best match for the adjective card, and places it face-down. The players then debate and argue as to why their noun card best matches the adjective card and the judge then selects the match that is most creative, humorous and/or interesting. E.g: green card: "boring", red card: "old man at the sea". Hahahah we played until we were red in the faces, actually sweating and cursing and shouting out loud trying to get our points across!

Sigh I love my colleagues. Here they are! Note the ratio of boys:girls -> 1:3

The photo above is one of the many photos taken during Formal Night by the cruise's official photographer which costs a whopping USD20 each (unfortunately no soft copies were given with the photos damn them). Anyhoo, I would never have parted with my precious USD20 just for one photo. It was given to me by Ming after days of mental torture that I might have finally gotten myself in Ming's bad books :( Firstly, during dinner (being his secret guardian angel), I got the waiter to send him a note saying "Hope you enjoyed your escargots" - he was having the lobster bisque. So when Ming went around asking everyone who his guardian angel was, Tim just had to add oil to the fire by asking him, "*gasp* you mean your guardian angel doesn't have attention to detail?!" After that, Tim made me write another note saying "Stop looking for your guardian angel! KNS! (with a hand-drawn middle finger)". Thirdly, the next day, I asked for room service to send coffee to his room. Lo and behold, he announced to everyone, "To my guardian angel, FYI, I don't like coffee, I like tea". Homaigod, die again cause:

1. Got his order mixed up - Bosses like their staff observant (I'm short-sighteddddd).
2. Who the heck says kanasai and sends a middle finger to their boss?!
3. I should have found out he likes tea, not coffee arghh!

So yeahh, after that long grandmotherly story, that was how that group photo landed in my hands - he actually wanted to know who his guardian angel was so he could do something nice for him/her! YAY!

Being the company's Accountant, I dread to receive the final cruise bill and receipts. Now, what cost cutting measures should we impose...

Of Tigers

The boy has been on a hunt for even more Tigers to add to his collection (zzzzz) during our recent trip to Hong Kong.

He says they are all different, each has its own character. Look at the picture above - THEY ALL LOOK THE SAME! And he says my bags are a waste of money. Now, bags on the other hand, ARE different - clutches, top-handles, shoulder bags, totes, satchels, hobo, flap, no-flap, and the list goes on. As Carrie Bradshaw from SATC said, "I like my money right where I can see it - hanging in my closet". Handbags = investment (or think of it as a family heirloom - to last generations!), Tigers = something you put your smelly feet into.

My thoughts on Tigers after going through a gazillion of them?

Of graffiti

There is something about wall graffiti that stops me in my tracks whenever I see one. I love that Melbourne has such works of art. Some wall graffiti I managed to snap when I was there:

Ok, so the last photo is not exactly a wall graffiti but I love how Portmans decorated one of their walls. They even have a painting of me on it! :p

Of Halloween

A little update at the bottom:

Boo! This is the time of the year where creativity is at its best! From angelic to skanky to scary to being that one unfulfilled ambition to every (wo)man's fantasy. All this in one place - The Ascott on 30/31 October 2010. Gosh I sound like an advertisement -_-

HAHAHAH I love the Triton (merman) costume. All decked in a fishtail, trident, oh-so-wise white beard and even plasters to cover his nipples hahah ha!

Taliban looking all happy killing a soldier and giggling by himself in the corner - this is what the stuff in the cup does to people.

  Ooo err O_O

Fairy, Your Conscience, Wonder Woman, Mamasan, Pilot, Goth, Stewardess, Mamasan's concubine, Arabian and Audrey Hepburn.

Marvel at the Marvels. Errr ok bad pun :p

The Rubik's Cube must be a helluva complicated dude.

Some little drawings Jacqkie came up with on some of the stuff that happened that night:

Pictures do paint a thousand words, eh? Hohoho

Me as "Your Conscience - Angel vs. Devil"
Jacqkie as "Wonder Woman"
Linda as "Pilot"
Sara as "Fairy"
Yuen as "Goth"
Michelle as "Mamasan"
Rachel as "Arabian"
Fresh as "Audrey Hepburn"
Nick Davis as "Goth" (who turned out looking more like Adam Lambert)
Karen as "Stewardess"
Firdy as "Taliban"

...and heaps more.

Of life lessons

Life lesson #11: Always bring your own bowls and chopsticks if you ever dine at Xiao Fei Yang Steamboat (at least at the Uptown branch) or you would be charged RM1 per person for using theirs. Wth?? How did I confirm this? After getting the bill, I asked the waitress what "mess kit" meant. She then proceeded to point at the bowls and chopsticks we used. If you ever wondered why the bowls and chopsticks are so nicely wrapped in plastic prior to use - don't be fooled. Talk about surprise hidden charges.

Of life lessons

Life lesson #10: Never hold your boyf's favorite soft toy for ransom (as depicted in the pic below sent to him) when you stupidly left something equally, if not more, valuable to you at his place.
