oyster is a bad boy

hubsterman and i had dinner at victoria station in taipan tonite. i'm normally very boring with my choices. i'll always have the parisienne garlic steak, whereas his choice is always a guess for me.

tonite he chose the carpetbagger. i was already tearing into my own juicy piece of meat when his order arrived at the table. he took a bite and instantly asked be to take a whiff of the oysters sandwiched in the middle of the steak. i took a sniff and a taste. they bad. totally off.

he got the waiter to take his steak away and changed his order to a garlic steak (no point taking his chances with the oysters again).

they fired up his order pretty quick and when he cut into the meat, it was rare (he ordered medium). it was more than rare. infact, it look raw. again the plate goes back into the kitchen. guess they nuked it and this time it came back perfect.

did we tip them? yup.

will we go back? yup.

will we order the carpetbagger again? not on your life.

am i man enough?

i've been thinking about my likes and dislikes recently and i've come to realise that i've got a lot of "manly" interests.

~ i love football (by football, i mean the european football, not the american game where they use their hands and hold the ball and run around, the only thing they do with their FOOT is to kick the ball. then why do they call it FOOTball???)

i love the game and yes, i do have a team that i support. in fact, i support 2 teams, one as a big time supporter and the second, well, as a small time supporter.

i love to watch a great game of football. yes, even when the team that i'm supporting is losing (i'll be very disappointed though). i like that better than the inconsistant and downright horrendous thing they do that they call 'referreeing'

~ i love formula 1. i've always been a die-hard mcClaren fan especially the late aryton senna and mika hakkinen. as the two greats no longer race in f1, i'm not so much a supporter of the team. i just enjoy the races and the GOOD driving skills. funnily enough, i've never been a fan of michael schumacher. hmm... i wonder why ;P

~ i like d.i.y. doing simple repairs, assembling, plumbing and all of those sorts have always been an interest of mine. i like to put things together and i like to know how things work.

~ i happen to prefer beer over cutesy cocktails. i prefer the taste. forget the beer belly and all that. gimme a beer rather than a cutesy pina colada. although i admit that there are times when i wouldn't mind a well put together cocktail with a kick.

~ i like war movies, especially those with loads of strategizing and fight scenes.

~ i like superheros and their comics. i have a secret kinda superhero alter-ego back in highschool.

~ i like spy books, and war books (in fact i'm a readaholic. i read anything and everything, even read a phonebook once coz there was no other reading material). so maybe this category doesn't really count, but what the heck.

~i like snooker. not pool, but snooker.

~ i like the sports section of the newspaper. i prefer that to the lifestyle section on most days. when i read the papers, i always save the sports section for last. looking forward to it eagerly whilst reading the rest of the paper first. definetely saving the best for last.

i do have my girly interests, but somehow or rather i've always prefered discussing a good game or a good race or a new way of doing up the house to a discussion of makeup and clothes and fashion. i figure that i AM man enough. that's why i'm a lady =D

besides, my 'manly' interests have brought my husband and i closer together. think about it, wouldn't it be nice if your wife enjoys a game or a race with your rather than having her sulk about it the whole time? *fluttering eyelashes with a coy smile*

drifting anchors

sometimes i look back in life and wonder where the people we call our friends are at now.

the people from our school days, our college/uni days, people we used to work with, play with and cry with.

i've got good friends from my school days who just live a couple of rows from my home, and some are a couple of continents away. it's an irony that my closest friends in school are the ones who are far away from me now. and then there were the ones from after school. where's nik? last i heard, he's somewhere in germany. where's zu? dunno. where's christina? where's ailene? where's justin? heard he's now some big shot in an ad agency in the u.s. where's bala and siva? where's eugene? heard he's with ibm. only one i kept in touch with was howie, but apparently he's now known as brian, or was it mike? dunno, he'll always be howie to me.

i've met loads, and i mean loads of people when i started working. some became friends, some moved on and the one i missed most is sendi. she married some prick and is now apparently somewhere in some farm in australia. haven't seen her for years. do i miss her? very much.

in recent years, i've met loads of new friends, and a bunch of them thru my husband. some are knuckleheads, and some are nice. will we stay friends? dunno. hope so. especially with the nice ones =)

as i look back at my life, i ask, "who are my friends?" "what are friends?" are they anchors? or drifters?

fucking dumbass mother cat

me thinks the title says it all.

which mother prefers to leave their young in a wet drainhole compared to a warm shelter environment on a cold wet rainy day? A DUMBASS CAT, THAT'S WHO.

a mother cat recently gave birth to 3 lil kitties and at noon, she left them in the drain where the hot overhead sun was shinning mercilessly down on them. where's the mother in the meantime? away to God knows where.

i mean, come on... even i, who kinda dislike cats (i'm very much a dog person) found these newborns (who have yet to open their eyes, mind you) cute and pitiful.

my hubsterman took a piece of tile to cover the drain so that the poor things will at least have some shade.

a couple of hours later, it started to pour (tropical weather, no warning, no season). i could hear them mewing so pitifully. i took a container, lined it with newspaper and kitchen towels, and picked the little kitties from the wet drain and dried them and put them in the container. i also laid out some fish for the dumbass mother cat (she's gotta eat to be nourished enough to feed them right??!!)

guess what she does? the freakin' dumbass pussy came back, dragged her litter into the wet DRAINHOLE and came up again to feed and clean herself, all these whilst her babies were again mewing pitifully and probably drowning in the drainhole.

she won't let me near, she spits and hiss (i could probably kick her ass if i wanted to, but then the poor kitties will be motherless).

i had to hide and peep to watch all this take place, as i was afraid that she might be wary of me and gobble up her young if i sat right next to her kitties. fat load of good that do.

at the time of writing this entry, i can see that the structure and composition is just out the window as i'm still so upset with the fucking dumbass cat. i'm not going to correct this later or whenever as i want this to stay as a testiment of my anger, my irritation, my disappointment, my frustration and my sadness of the whole issue.

like we never loved at all

You never looked so good
as you did last night,
underneath the city lights,
there walking with your friend,
laughing at the moon.
I swear you looked right through me.
But I’m still living with your goodbye,
and you’re just going on with your life.

How can you just walk on by
without one tear in your eye?
Don’t you have the slightest feelings left for me?
Maybe that’s just your way
of dealing with the pain,
forgetting everything
between our rise and fall
like we never loved at all.

You, I hear you’re doing fine.
Seems like you’re doing well
as far as I can tell.
Time is leaving us behind,
(time – leaving us behind)
another week has passed
and still I haven’t laughed yet.
So tell me, what your secret is
(I wanna know, I wanna know, I wanna know)
to letting go, letting go like you did,
like you did.

How can you just walk on by
without one tear in your eye?
Don’t you have the slightest feelings left for me?
Maybe that’s just your way
of dealing with the pain,
forgetting everything
between our rise and fall
like we never loved at all.

Did you forget the magic?
Did you forget the passion?
Oh, and did you ever miss me,
and long to kiss me?
Oh baby, baby.

Maybe that’s just your way
of dealing with the pain,
forgetting everything
between our rise and fall
like we never loved at all.

Your Love Element Is Fire

In love, you are a true listener and totally present.
For you, love is all about feeling more alive than you've ever felt.

You attract others with your joy and passion.
Your flirting style is defined by your strong ability to communicate.

Fun and play are the cornerstones of your love life.
And while your flame may burn too brightly, it's part of your appeal.

You connect best with: Wood

Avoid: Water

You and another Fire element: will likely burn out quickly


how many blogs do you have?

me? i've got a few. one main one, which is this one. a recipe blog, a wishlist one, one about our home and one just for ranting and raving (which i don't write in anymore, i rant and rave on this one nowadays).

i know of some people who has loads of blogs, writing as different personas for each one.

to each their own i guess.

Alex Xara Fernandez OR Caleb Joaquin Fernandez

...or maybe both.

these are the two names my bro and sis have picked for their soon-to-be newborn.

Alex meaning Protector Of Mankind and sweet Xara is Princess

Caleb means Faithful & Bold while Joaquin is God Will Establish

...well, i'm hoping they'll use both, which means, i'm hoping for twins, a boy and a girl for them...

i am ill again!! just gotten over a bad bout of flu, was up and running, and now i'm down again with a bad cold, cough and fever.

i really hate this shitty feeling. feel so useless and lethargic and just plain bleakh!

i'm almost certain i know who i got this from, and i feel like throttling his scrawny neck!!!

i was at a outdoor concert last weekend, and one of the audio production guys spittled in my face (right in the nose and mouth area some more!) as he was talking. so rude. do something about that disgusting habit dude.

i found out a couple of days ago that he's on medical leave coz he's sick. and on that same day, i fell ill.

been falling ill pretty often lately, hmmm.... guess it' time i start hitting the gym again to get some exercise and to boost up my fitness level... will go when i'm well again. can't go when i'm ill and feeling like shit can i???
