my msn emoticon love/hate relationship

I am on MSN messenger a lot, I have many friends and online chat buddies there.

It’s nice to use, some of the features are cool, it’s free and I love the animated emoticons. By the way to my MSN buddies, don’t bother nudging me ‘coz I have the shaky thing disabled neh neh neh neh neh.

But if there’s one thing I hate about MSN, it’s the emoticons. Or rather the blatant misuse of something cute and funny.

Too many people are overdoing it, OVERKILL SIAL!!!

For example…

MSN emoticons 01

This is a mild case ok. There was once this friend and I were talking about something more serious, I had to try figure out what the heck she was trying to say with all those inappropriate smileys automatically inserted in mid-sentences.

And this is another friend ‘explaining’ to me some insurance plan:

MSN emoticons 03

How to read, I ask you?!? Dah lah my Math cannot make it, now have to try overlook the very distracting emoticons.

I seriously don’t understand lah. Please lah people, over killing it is teh sien. Then you wonder why I don’t like chatting with you on MSN.

Because deep down inside, I’d only be going…

redang was the fun!

So we were at Redang Island for three days and two nights (23-25 Sept). Some of them went for a Project AWARE clean the beach/sea thingy, some of us just went there for the sun, sea and sand.

Redang 2005 16 - Redang beach
Don’t you wish you were there too?

By golly, what fine sand! Even though there were aplenty dead corals washed ashore (and dying corals at the marine park), I’d never felt such soft sand before edited – actually I did, in Sabah but that was a jolly long time ago so I apologise if I can’t remember as many things as I used to πŸ™ Penang and Langkawi have nothing like this, NOTHING!

I wore a bikini anyway. Screw your eyes. Bwahahahahaha!

Redang 2005 18 - Suanie
As the saying goes, round is a shape.

The first day we just did some swimming and suntanning. I got sunburn. Yalah, all my fault. But sleeping in the sun feels so goooooood! Of course lah, need to have the perfect environment also… give me the best bed and a million bucks to sleep by the LDP underneath the hot scorching sun for a couple hours… no thank you.

The drinking water where we were was supplied via an underground source… apparently a couple months ago it was alright and normal but when we were there, the water was salt-enhanced… maybe the underground source got kinda screwed up. There was orange juice and Chinese tea at the buffets… so it was sweet+salty orange juice and salty Chinese tea. Just needs getting used to.

We went to the marine park on the second day. What Kim didn’t blog about was that she kena molested by some hamsap guy who brought her around to see what’s swimming in the waters… if he had his way I’m sure he would show her what was swimming in his pants too… luckily she refused to ‘pergi jauh sikit’ (go a bit further).

Then something ridiculously funny happened to ST – I wasn’t there to see it but I’m sure he would tell you later anyway.

Redang 2005 34 - Shaolintiger, KY, Marge, Kim, Suanie
We were like, teh happy… and can ST get a BodyGlove endorsement?

My digicam was quite fucked – I can’t take proper photos whenever there’s sunlight. Don’t know if it’s a technical fault or the design flaw. So yeah, I couldn’t take nice photos under sunlight. Sien.

On the way back to the travel agency’s office in Kuala Terengganu town, we stopped by a roadside stall selling keropok lekor. IT WAS TEH GOOD!!! I SO WANT MORE!!!!!

Then we spent a few hours in town which I’d rather not remember.

So, yeah overall it was fun. But I damn kesian Redang Island… over-commercialised and the dying corals at the marine park quite menyakitkan hati. And the diesel and smoke from the boats and the environment and the everything, you not kesian meh?

I am sentimental like that.

Next time I want to go to Pulau Perhentian.

suanie loves fireangel!

I first got to know her through tBlog. She left a comment on my tBlog, I checked out her now-defunct site, laughed my ass off and the rest is history.

The first time I met her was at Misai’s. She was this petite thing, rather quiet… little did we know that we could not be more wrong…

KY, Horng, Fireangel

But she’s fun to be around, she makes swearing a fine art and she can be worse an alkie than all of us combined.

Fireangel 30% siao… let’s not go into higher percentage

WE LOVE FIREANGEL!!!

Go support WeLoveFireangel.blogspot.com at WeLoveFireangel.blogspot.com because WeLoveFireangel.blogspot.com!!!

the birthday post, thank you all!

Actually I also don’t know how to begin writing this post, let alone write it all. The best way to start is to do it Suanie-style I guess…

THANK YOU EVERYBODY!!! I LOVE YOU ALL!!!

Jaime, Janice and I met at Bangsar’s Chillis for our usual happy hour fix, after which we went to Telawi Street Bistro for their superbly delish strawberry iced tea.

Then Jaime suggested that we go bar-hopping… okay… strolled down the main street for a bit and finally entered T-Club, where a lot of birthday celebrations were held…

OMGWTFBBQ!!!

It was seriously a VERY NICE surprise to see Peter, Wuan, Fireangel, Delia, Duncan, Kimberly, ShaolinTiger, KY, Gary & friend (sorry I seriously cannot remember your name at this moment πŸ™ ) and my eldest sister Lyanna all sitting at the end corner. Then Eyeris appeared, then later Terence and Saint arrived and much later Chris came by.

Thank you Jaime for doing all this. She said it’s to make up for 4 years of not spending my birthday eve with me… but I think it’s mostly because she loves me so…

I LOVE JAIME!!!

There was beer, lots of it. I got some nice pressies as well.

This is Gary.

1 full glass and another quarter glass of the foulest tasting Graveyard ever, 3 glasses of beer, 1 tequila shot, 1 Kamikaze (which I thought was some lime juice that Eyeris kindly offered me.. bleahhhhhhh πŸ˜› )… I was quite gone.

24th birthday party - Suanie drunk

Even thinking about it now makes me feel like puking.

The actual day was spent with my sister Ashley at Ikano, she bought me lunch and a couple of very nice skirts… yay!

Thank you all so much… really didn’t expect it… a lot of people called and sent me SMSes and e-mails and comments and messages on my shoutbox… thank you all… tima kasih berbanyak πŸ˜€

Kim has a post for me.
KY posted seriously incriminating photos…
Jeemee wrote me a birthday story.

nic does the rain dance

We have had quite a dry spell, apparently (again) we are gonna be out of water blah blah unless Heavens bless us with lots of trickles.

O citizens of Malaysia, we are definitely gonna need help. Lots of it.

And yet again I have taken matters into my own hands. Somebody has to, else we would all be crawling on dusty cobble roads with rusty metal tins just BEGGING for a mere drop of kitty’s piss.

No, can’t do, not.at.all.

Enter Nic.

Nicholas does the rain dance 01

Although Nic is in UK, he is very much a philanthropic and he cares for the well-being of his fellow Malaysians, that is you and I. So he decided to pray and ask for help from the unseen powers that be, please oh please give them their daily rain.

Nicholas does the rain dance 02

Didn’t work. Nic was not a happy camper and went, WHY YOU NEVER LISTEN TO ME ONE?!?

Nicholas does the rain dance 03

Fuwah, no reply wor. That made Nic angrier and angrier and if it is even possible, angriest.

Nicholas does the rain dance 04

Screw it lah, Nic thought, all these mass organised religions are over rated anyway. We should go back to the nature of our cave-dwelling forefathers, with a slightly updated version of course.

And that was what Nic did.

Nicholas does the rain dance 05

And boy, did he do it!

Nicholas does the rain dance 06

Nicholas does the rain dance 07

Let’s see if it works.

blogbuster peter tan rides into action

When I purchased a copy of the Malay Mail today, I was more than a little tickled pink to see the face of our local hero blogger Encik Peter Tan splashed across the main page.

Peter Tan on the Malay Mail, 160905

I am sure I am not the only one who thinks that it is high time Encik Peter Tan visits his local barber. Unless you find that sort of thing a turn-on, that is. Tee-hee.

OKlah, the issue at hand is quite serious. But you know, since when is Suanie a super duper serious person?

Malay Mail article 01 - 160905

It is about some fella trying to be a smart arse going around various blogs with a very long comment on racial bla bla Malaysia bla bla Malay bla bla Chinese bla bla NEP bla bla. Nothing we have not heard of before. *Yawn*

Malay Mail article 02 - 160905

But if a blog is a representation of our house on cyberspace, this sort of action means that our house is being shitted on. Normally most of us bloggers would just clean up the shit but this time Peter jai has decided that Enough is Enough; the shitter must clean up his own shit, he is tired of buying brooms.

Moral of the story:
1. Your shit stinks.
2. Don’t be a smart ass.
3. Be responsible.
4. That means cleaning up your own shit.
5. Better still, shit in your own home.

All hail Peter the blog-buster!

Peter Tan is the Blog Buster!

He’s so going to kill me now. La la la la la…

happy birthday, malaysia!

Today we take a trip back down memory lane.

The Malaysia flag

The moon and the star represent Islam, the official religion of the country. Just because it is official does not mean that *everyone* is a Muslim. Generally if you were not born a Malay (note that there is a difference between Malay and Malaysian – the former is a race and the latter is a nationality) you are quite free to choose and follow other religions.

Fourteen is the number of strips and points of the star – they represent the 13 states and 1 Federal Territory (even though we have 3 FT, they are all still under FT) of Malaysia.

The blue symbolises the unity of Malaysians, though I can’t understand the link. Yellow represents the monarchy. I think we have one of the most interesting monarchy (state and country) developments in the world, thanks to our ex PM. πŸ˜€

We gained Independence on 31st August 1957 but became one on 16 September 1963.

Happy birthday, Malaysia!

We love you long time.
