Royal Wedding Monkeys

While the UK souvenir industry have their hands full pasting William and Kate on every piece of silverware, glass, marble, plastic and any other element known to mankind, Kipling's latest addition to their range of accessories include - Royal Wedding Monkeys!

I think they're absolutely adorable and portable enough to carry around plus the fact that monkeys have never looked so cute before! Just a thought: Do you think the cuteness of the monkeys extends to the pic below? *winks*

For whatever reason, watching a fairytale wedding is compensation to some of us who have a longing desire to have the wedding of their dreams. Then again, those who just got engaged may just want to check out the wedding dress design, in hope of replicating that for a cheaper rate. 

Anyway, I'm sure thousands of girls are gonna flock home to catch the royal wedding (hope the rain comes before 5pm) tomorrow. I'm sure as hell gonna come in to work earlier so that I can leave early to watch the live coverage!

It All Started With the Big Bang!

I've given up trying to catch my favourite TV shows because it involves me rushing home from work, braving the jam and/or rain and rushing to tapau dinner. By the time I get home, it's more like Glee-Why-Bother or Desperately-Confused Housewives or How-I-Met-Which-Mother. So these days, I've started buying DVD box sets from my neighbourhood-friendly DVD seller :)

If you're a sucker for comedy, you should try watching The Big Bang Theory. The series revolves around a group of socially-awkward physicists whose lives get turned upside down when a hot blonde moves in to their apartment building.

Most of the episodes make reference to comic books, limited-edition action figures, PlaystationXBoxNintendo Wii, Rockband, Klingon, Spock, Vulcan hearing and the ever-famous Stan Lee (I'm not saying you'll only enjoy this if you're a geek, but you know..).

If you're not convinced, try watching the videos below. Might just change your mind :)

Focus on the Road!

A question to all women out there:

Have you ever, while crossing the road or walking to the shops, had men staring/whistling/talking vulgar at you while driving their vehicles?

Though I had a lot of these in the past, lately they've reduced since I hardly walk around anymore (with a car comes laziness!) until the last few days. I was walking at the side of the road to the office when a truck came by me and the driver stared, looked back to the road AND turned back again for a second glance. This time however, he smiled and he was half toothless!!

For god's sake. Why do you need to stare at women like they're the lost treasure of King Tut? It's not like we're gonna burst into bubbles or do the cartwheel for you. I especially hate it when motorcyclists turn their heads to stare/whistle as they ride. It's always my fondest wish that they would hit a tree or something while doing that.

It may be flattering to some women but definitely not to me. I'm sure there are much better places to attract women instead of on the road (and no, romantic comedies don't apply here!). I not only find it rude but annoying. Women are not trophies to look and stare at, much less be vulgar at. Concentrate on the road in front of you instead of who's walking around you!

P.S. Doubt those people who stare, actually read blogs but you never know!

Snatch Theft Attempts

*cough*cough* Not blogging for more than a week tends to make my ancient blog collect dust. Thanks to work picking up its pace in the last few weeks and social events & activities during the weekends, blogging has taken a backseat :D

But enough about me. I've been hearing more cases of snatch theft in broad daylight, even with crowds of people around and recently, I heard about how my boss almost got mugged right in front of his home, in Mont Kiara. He's from Guatemala and the town he lived in, is apparently a 'ghetto' of some sort where you can get mugged or shot in the streets. You would think that with this experience, he would be prepared when he's mugged.

Well, he was walking outside his home, talking on his iPhone, when a biker stopped by and snatched his iPhone. My boss (with quick reflexes) had time to GRAB his phone back and demanded of the biker, 

"Why are you taking my phone?!"

The biker sped off and that was when realization hit him - the biker was trying to steal his iPhone! By then, he started shouting profanities at the disappearing biker. Oh god, I could not stop laughing when I first heard the story but all's good because he's safe (good thing he wasn't held at knife point) and his phone was not stolen in the end.

This also reminds me of another snatch theft attempt that was unfortunately successful. It was during my college days and I was at the bus stop. One of the people waiting, was this guy who was standing and texting on his phone - let's call him John. 

Suddenly, a car (with fully tinted windows) drove up and parked at the side. We didn't think anything unusual of course seeing that they were probably waiting for someone but after a while, the passenger side window rolled down and I could see that there were about 4-5 guys in the car. The guy in the passenger seat called out to John standing with his phone and asked (in perfect English, mind you) if he could borrow the phone to call his friend as his battery died (apparently his friends didn't have phones too??).  

John looked hesitant but then asked for the phone number of the friend. The guy (without flickering) gave him the number and I could see John dialing the number. I'm sure someone must have answered because he said "Hello" and gave the phone to the guy in the car. 

Let me tell you this. It was not even 2 seconds before the car sped off - leaving John and the rest of us in shock. Luckily, he managed to get the car number plate but I doubt those assholes got caught. Plus, with the recent snatch theft video that went viral, it's so scary to even go out alone these days. Snatch thieves are getting more and more brazen (probably from watching all those crime series) especially around Section 16 and 17 in PJ. 

Nowadays, I try not to take my HUGE shoulder bag out. Instead, I try to cram everything into a smaller clutch or if I have to, hide my bag under my legs while driving. Beats having your car windows broken in less than 2 seconds right?

Carol's Surprise B'Day!

Last Saturday night, we (my friends and I) threw our very close friend Carol - a surprise party at WIP in Bangsar Shopping Complex. Most of the fun was watching Carol enjoying alcohol and her brand new Charles & Keith shoes but the other part was catching up with friends that we've not seen in a while. So instead of blabbering on further, I'll just leave it to the pics below!

Her spanking new Charles & Keith

Hotties in a row!

Carol downs a Flaming Lamborghini!

Glad you had fun Carol!

(even though you didn't remember much the next day!)

Monday Blues

Since it has been a rainy Monday morning, I figured everyone who's already having the blues would be even bluer today! Hence, my opening music track for today - 'Blue Eyes Blue' by Eric Clapton.

I absolutely adore the guitar plucking for this song and to be honest, I can just listen to Eric Clapton's soulful voice serenade me all day and night long and not get bored. In fact, if I could hire him to perform at my wedding, I would!
