Only Penguins Need Drive

While waiting for Mirror Mirror to start, and in between my bites and gulps on the hot-dog and full-sugar coke dinner, the movie trailer for Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted came on.

"What are you doing?! Zebras can't drive! Only penguins and people can drive!" Alakay the Lion shouted at Marty the Zebra.

Hell yeah, only penguins and humans can drive! Tell me, how can one not love penguins? :)
Check out the wicked wigs on the wicked crew! I honestly daresay only Skipper can pull off this look.

Allah Took a Detour from Iraq

Email from: Wynnii Lu
Subject: Allah Took a Detour
To: Lazar P

The postcard arrived! :)

Allah took a detour to Thailand (with the sun, sand, sexy bikini-clad babes on the beaches, I don't blame him) and he eventually found his way to the best country in the world! I knew putting your faith in Allah would pay off. ;)

365 Days & Counting

Happy 365th day on the job, Wynnii! :)

365 more days to come~ 

I've Been Placed Under House Arrest - The Sequel

A 3am visit to the hospital and awakening my doctor from her beauty sleep meant I've been placed under house arrest again! :(

If you must have the details, there was a pool of blood and I was lying in it. I was in dreamland and thinking I was getting my beauty sleep but who knew it turned out to be a nightmare in the end. Boo!

I have a feeling doc was on the same page with me about our beauty sleep being disturbed - and it's not a good feeling. I bet putting me under house arrest is her way of getting back at me.

Update: Three weeks of house arrest! She must really love her beauty sleep!

Even Back In 1598, They Know All About Love

Ay me! for aught that I could ever read,
Could ever hear by tale or history,
The course of true love never did run smooth;
But, either it was different in blood,
-- Lysander, A Midsummer Nights Dream

Happy Birthday to Weihao

Happy birthday to the best guy friend who has been missing in action and unheard of for many weeks, months! I stopped short of saying years.

Given that I have the monumental task of organising your birthday party this year and the guys won't allow me to bring you to have Spanish tapas to relish the past (they still don't buy it that we were never a couple... such friends you have... but, I digress), I shall bring you to have authentic Singaporean food.

I hope you would enjoy the planned dinner of hokkien mee, satay, char kway teow, stingray, sambal kang kong and tiger beer at Lau Pa Sat on Saturday! Well, I know I would, so you'd better to. ;)

Happy birthday once again and stay young forever! Or die trying.

Cat Got My Tongue

Cul-de-sac is always a great word to know. So is aquincunx. And lollapalooza, for that matter. 

Food for the brain but cat got my tongue. Haha!

Battleship

Random thoughts that came to my mind while watching the "wow" actions in Battleship.

I used to be on Team Bill but after watching Battleship, I am a Team Eric convert through and through. Oh, Eric Northman. *swoon* #trueblood

If I had a brain like that, I'd be working for NASA or the navy or Pentagon or some secret service bureau and not big G. That is what's called making a difference.

I have always wondered what the fuss with hiring veterans is. Battleship 姜还是老的辣。Now, I understand after the movie. Or at least, have scratched the surface.

A 2 hour movie and I didn't yawn a bit, I'm happy. :)

Just Like You!

I read this and I chuckled. You are exactly like Calvin. Wait, of course, you would say it's the other way round.

But we both agree I'm the smart one here. ;)

Don't You Remember?

The thing is I miss you like crazy but I know it's not going to do both of us good if I told you so.

Doctor Knows Best

I have to admit my doctor knows me very well. Almost too well, for that matter. During the post-surgery visit today, she asked, "Do you want to see what I removed from you?"

I barely opened my mouth to reply when she continued, "I know you like to see this kind of things, so here is the picture".

I was overjoyed, to say the least. I have to agree now that doctors know best, or at least mine does. ;)

Memories in Digital Realm

Sometimes, I'd reread all the conversations we have over gchat, email, text, skype, you get the drift... Then I chuckled from time to time about the silly things we talked, debated, negotiated, discussed, bickered, descant and fought over. The fond and discontented memories came rushing back and one can only admit how time has truly passed us by. These are now just but memories in the digital realm.

Oh, such melancholy...

Dinner, Not Date

I have already received two phone calls today for a dinner date. Of course, when I say date, I kid you. ;)

15833.33 Hours of TV

And by that calculation, I should have watched 15833.33 hours of tv. Ahhhhhh!! I have been missing out on great shows and cultural references too! Thank goodness I have this week of house arrest to catch up. Time to indulge in trashy tv shows, namely, Mad Men, New Girl, 2 Broke Girls, Body of Proof, Gossip Girl, Happy Endings, Whitney, Covert Affairs!

Bigger AHHHHHH! I just revealed my age to you! You wished! ;)

The Green-Eye Monster

Fb makes stalking so easy. Is it wrong to feel like this? :(

Walk the Walk with Lions

Finally got my hands on a copy of our lion park encounter that has us walking with lions, playing with lions and laughing with lions in Zimbabwe. :)

The best memories of my growing old trip come rushing back and I smile.  

Oh, Africa, I miss you so!

Like a Cheshire Cat

At 4pm exactly, the phone rang unexpected, displaying a familiar name across its screen. He almost never rings me during the day. Like a cheshire cat, a smile spread across my face and the 11 minutes and 22 second phone call made my day. A good start to the house arrest, I tell you. :)

Misunderstood

I don't like you to drive long distances too. I get worried when you don't arrive at the scheduled time. My mind goes wondering and the worst possible scenarios play tricks on me. An multiple car accident, a toppled crane, a fallen tree? And there you would be lying in a pool of blood without anyone notifying me. Yes, quite the vivid imagination. Yes, you misunderstood me.

Eight Points to The Undeserving Champion

A unexciting game between United and QPR led to an eight-point lead for the undeserving champion-to-be.

"Why are they undeserving?" I heard someone ask.

28 shots with 10 on goal, 11 corners and 73% possession time only led to all of TWO goals! I rest my case.

Although I did say points are irrelevant since we are going to win the cup, that doesn't mean we don't want to hold our heads high when we hold the cup above the heads.

The only saving grace is I caught the match with boyfriend and I think this could have been the first game we have watched together since 2009. :)

I've Been Placed Under House Arrest

Another visit to the hospital, another trip to the OR, another procedure under the knife, another overnight stay at Thomson Medical Center and I have been placed under house arrest. Doctor's order was "I do not want you to walk too much or perform any strenuous tasks. I would advise you not to leave the house for a week. I have given you something to prevent bleeding. If the bleeding starts though, it's difficult to know when it will stop or how much it will be. Best to just lie in bed and rest at least one week. Even better if you can rest at home for three weeks so you can heal faster."

I didn't lie when I said I have been placed under house arrest. No pun intended.

PS: This time round, doc gave me an injection that knocked me out in less than 10 seconds, which explained why I am not able to describe the gruesome procedure in detail to you, unlike previously. I faintly recalled being woken up after the procedure, and having the sense to ask to see what the doctor had removed from me - a piece of flesh that was about the size of one joint on my pinky and its dark colouration didn't looked too pleasing. The doc confirmed this ridiculous act of mine when she was on her round a couple of hours after. I guess I should be happy that I still possessed my warped sense of humour in my drugged state. ;)
