When is a holiday not a holiday?
When you are fucking sick like a raped goat forced to hibernate throughout spring and eat stale hay.
Because everything is tasteless to me. I mean Singapore is not known for her culinary expertise (*runs*) but there are some things I want to enjoy! Like Tony Romas or Ramas or something like that. I went there a couple years back and I could never forget the taste of their succulent ribs! But with this flu? I might have been eating 80 cents bread for all I know.
And that’s what I have been eating today. Yesterday Jaime bought some bread from Bread Talk and gave me one. I declined but she insisted and as they say, RESISTANCE IS FUTILE! I’d always had this thing about branded bread… like Bread Talk and Bread Story… I thought they were fancy rip-offs with the price and all. But the bread sure is nice… and yesterday I went to buy some more bread for myself… OMG I CAN’T STOP EATING BREAD NOW!!!
S asked me if the air in Singapore was cleaner. DEFINITELY! KL is so polluted and hazy these days… and the week that I am in Singapore, a lot of places will see rationing of water (read : Kim) and bla bla bla… so I was glad that I got out of KL/PJ during this week. On the other hand this weird perverse thought came to mind… Maybe I got sick in Singapore because I am used to the dirty air in KL/PJ? My body has embraced the impurities and is actually dependable on it… Wow… this is no good man… Come to think of it, I almost always get sick when I go back to BP… maybe it is traveling down South in general.
So far there are many good things about Singapore though. Like how everyone queues up. Everybody waits for their turn. So proper and organised! Everyone drives so slow! Everyone stops at red lights! Well I know you are supposed to, but look at Malaysia!!!
And also some things are so cheap and easily available! Jaime and I have been wanting to get the Bar Grooves compilation CDs. KL is selling it for… RM110! Singapore is selling it for… SG$19.90! What the fuck!!! And the CDs are not even protected! Blah!
On Sunday Pinky, Winnie and Yuki took me to Prego’s at Raffles City for dinner. Then Pinky insisted on belanja-ing me. So good! I should go out with her more often NYAH NYAH NYAH!
Yesterday met up with Ash-RUFF who is nearly half-strangling himself to meet some Malaysians. Kesian mamak ni. Come back lah.
Tonight I’m supposed to meet the Ed but I don’t know if this will jadi? Coz I’m looking outside the hotel window and all is cloudy.
The rest of the trip, I’ll just sleep in, take my medicine, drink lots of water, eat bread. So much for a holiday.
I want to go shopping!!!
