Metal mouth, 5C memory lane, etc

When we were and Form 5 and my Dad was our Physics teacher *cringe*, I'd to wear external braces/headgear for a whole month to fix my teeth. Which didn't help btw, my teeth still point in 32 different directions. Anyway my Dad happened to be teaching "Magnets" one day. And Queenie who sat beside me then drew a cartoon, signed it and gave it to me. Over ten years later, yellowed and wrinkled, here it is:
Scanned before the paper totally disintegrates

Also grin-worthy is our 5C classic memory of when Thomas Hu told Miss Chong during RK that he was sad because his friend had killed himself, and she asked the whole class to pray for a minute. Until someone blabbed to her that the "friend" was a lizard who'd "committed suicide" leaping off a table :P

Also when Mrs A promised Chen Hao that she'd jump off the roof of our building if he got an A for his Bio...he didn't make it but we hadn't seen him study so hard since Primary 1 heheh!

And now featuring for the first time on this blog, Mrs Yee's shoes:
Rediscovered this pair while moving to the new staffroom

Next, Mary's very cute shoes!

Reminds me of rainbow cake!

Mary again
Aloo's 5 sleepy babies...up for adoption soon!

Lastly, to make Khiong jealous, here's our food from Misato at the Mall :->

CP's sweet bean curd and udon

My eel with eggs and rice

Our hot honey lemon

And after we watched

Falling in love is against the rules..

The Haunted School (which is very, very good !) and scared ourselves senseless, we attempted to distract ourselves with

Chicken and Vegetables (onions and carrots)

Tempura (5 veggie + 2 prawn) and rice

And I wonder why I'm fat :P~ It isn't the food, I still maintain that CP's the most fattening agent ever!

Lastly, quote of the week:
"I think girls will push other girls under a bus if they don't know them."

The KGB, Restroom doors and Chicks!

This one's when CP and I were driving past RIPAS and we saw this BIG..uhh..vehicle (dunno what to call it? truck? scooter? heheh) with tinted windows. Luckily they had to stop at a red light so we took this:

And since we often give chase to anything that catches our attention, we zooooomed after it and tailed it to the junction and managed to stop at a red light...right behind it :D

A real live Hummer!

The really odd bit was the 3 letter license plate...


And now, KFC's restroom doors. Because ANYTHING shoe-related is good ;-)


Ok they aren't that unique, so here's a restroom door you can find only in Bn - complete with baju kurung and tudong :-)

At Ong Sum Ping Health centre - Hers!

Finally, a pic from the pile sent from Basit in S'pore

Oi!! What were you looking at!!!!111oneoneoneone

Cute Robot Thingie

These pictures are long overdue...the robot is now kinda bent over. This "robot" can be found outside a workshop in Menglait. (when you turn right off the main road to get to LeApple)


Just thought that it was soooo cool that someone took the time and effort to fish out scraps of metal, shape them and piece this very elaborate fellow together.

Here's a closer look!

Watch this space for an updated pic of the a sorry state though.

Random stuff

Have to rush off in a bit, so here are some random pictures. First, real handmade patchwork quilts! I've only read about them, but this is the first time I've seen one. Saw them hanging on the clothesline at CP's place, her Grandmother made them, very very lawa!
Imagine how long it must have taken!
Even more creative with rhombuses
Now a few more pairs of shoes (Shoes seem to get very jealous of other shoes!)

Simon's shoes..can pose lagi :P ~
Mary's stylo-milo feet back by popular demand!

Lady Marie's feet :-)

CP's boot insisted on making a (much clearer!) comeback

Next, the thing from the Ikea shop at Jln Muara, which is a tissue box with a man-doll on it, complete with hairy chest and thingie heheh :-) It was soooo cute CP and I got one each.

Can see the chest hair?

The tissue comes out of a very strategic place ;-)

A picture taken at Mrs. Simmond's house during Mrs Anitha's farewell party. This cute cat was sitting at the edge of her indoor fish pond. And speaking of cats, Aloo had 5 babies, 3 white and 2 black, will advertise on brudirect in a month, gimme a shout if anyone wants :-)

Looks so serious!

And finally, a very random picture...

of Basit's very pink ear heheh :->

I wonder if you know how they live in Tokyo..

Woke up early and headed for CP's place to pick her up. We'd agreed to meet at 10am SST (Siti Standard Time) , but she was still sleeping when I got there at 10.15, which isn't surprising because I'm NEVER early :D In fact, I average about 45-50 minutes late for just about everything. After breakfast at La Mee we went to the Ikea shop where we bought something very up tomoro :->

Then off to UBD for the Japanese exhibition thingie. The first coupla booths were a little study in Japan, anime, Japanese technology (TV, video games, robot dog). The first interesting one was Origami.
There were 2 origami sumo wrestlers complete with wrestling ring.

They "wrestle" if you tap the box

And the Animal Kingdom plus a microphone...oops :P

With a big prosperity cat or "Maneki Neko", which is literally "beckoning cat". Its one of the most common lucky charms in Japan.

Can you believe this one's made out of paper???

Cat-in-the-box..Kawaii !


Then we went to the Tea Ceremony booth. There were 2 ladies there to "teach" us the art of drinking tea.

Japanese Tea Ceremony (Chaji)

Japanese chicks are hot!

First, a sweet (cookie, actually) to sweeten your mouth since the green tea is slightly bitter.

Then our host (who has a Masters degree in Japanese Tea Ceremony, I didn't know that even existed!) mixed the tea with a wooden whisk thingie.

And served it in a pretty bowl with the flower facing me.

Then the bowl is to be placed in my left palm, and turned twice clockwise, so that the flower faces the host. This is to show respect to the design. Then I've to drink the tea in 3 sips, turn the bowl back to face me and admire the flower :-)

Next was the Calligraphy Booth. We wrote our names in English and the lady painted them in Japanese. She's the wife of a Japanese ambassador and has a Masters in Japanese Calligraphy. The poor lady must have been writing all day but she was still SOOOO sweet and polite and graciously kept on painting.

Then they "frame" it with fluorescent paper and hand it to you.

The other booths were about traditional games, there was a guy spinning a top in front of the booth. Then Japanese festivals and events, language and a lucky draw thingie.

Nice baju!

These are dolls that parents give their daughters.

And these fish are hung outside the house on children's day (may 5th which is on the 5th of may :P) if you have sons, for good health.

Same cheeks right? heheh

Wanna know she's sooooooo pink?

Because I kissed her *Muuaaaaaaaaah*!!! :-)

In front of the language booth

CP's soooo hungry and growling at me to finish so I'll end with a hiau picture of sumo wrestlers and their round round butts hehe

Damuan and Shoes

Went to the Damuan again with Agnes, all in an effort to drop 15 lbs for the dance on April 14th. Wish me luck! Since we're both Puteri Lilin, we went around 6pm.
Lawa view of the river on the right

Ripples after a boat zoomed by

Rasheed was SOOO mean when we were kids cos he used to scare the heck out of me about walking on the grass. (YES, I STILL REMEMBER!!!) I actually believed that anyone caught stepping on the grass would kena rotan and used to wait fearfully for a cage to drop down and trap perpetrators. I was very young. And very gullible.

Still feel weird about walking on the grass..grrrr

The view when we started off

An hour later (with Agnes running ahead)

Half-dead and sweating like a goat

On a more shoe-related note, Richard's left shoe burst into tears when it saw Mary's shoes up here. So to console it, here's a picture of Richard's left shoe taken in the conference hall a coupla days ago:

Those must be comfortable shoes. I bet you can walk all day in shoes like those and not feel a thing.

And just so CP's maroon boots dont feel left out:

These boots were made for walkin', and that's just what they'll do...

Alang2 put mine up too:

One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you.
