hubby's nose replicated!!!... and some other tale

went for my ante-natal check up yesterday and our little one was once again being submitted to some heartbeat monitoring and scans. when the sonicaid was placed on my belly to listen for the heartbeat, Dot (that's what we call our lil one as we do not want to find out beforehand what the sex of our child is) started banging away at the device. the doctor lifted and reapplied the sonicaid to my belly 3 times, and all 3 times Dot whacked away at it. after that it was the ultrasound scan and when the doctor was scanning the face area, she exclaimed, "the nose very high!" and she pointed at hubby and said, "got your nose lah".

earlier when we were waiting for to see the doctor, there was this dude who was talking a whole load of crap to a pregnant woman and her family members. from what i can make out of the conversation (no, i wasn't eavesdropping, he was sharing it with the whole waiting room area), this appu is one of those direct selling fella dealing in food supplements. the lady he was talking to seems to be either a client of his or an acquaintance. ok, this is what i gathered:

- she just came back from somewhere else, that's why she's here for her first ante-natal visit with this doctor when she's already about 4 months pregnant

- he's the one who introduce the doctor to her as his wife used the same doctor

- she's a young mom-to-be in her early twenties

this is what he told her:

- amniocentesis is done with a blood test, not with the amniotic fluid, and it is done AFTER the 20th week of pregnancy

- at four months pregnant, it is mostly impossible to determine the sex of the child

- only women need calcium (What?!!? men got no bones ah??)

- he and his wife did the amnio test coz they weren't planning to continue with the pregnancy if the test for down syndrome is positive

- he is skilled at palm and eyeball reading (whatever the heck that was!??) to tell a person's health condition

- 3 capsules a day of whatever the heck supplement he was selling is sufficient daily iron intake for pregnant women (which the doctor denied and said that no way is that enough at all for a pregnant woman. i suppose the lady went in with her bottle of supplement and asked the doctor about it. HA HA HA! the dude started mumbling something about his wife increased her daily dosage of the supplement at some point in her own pregnancy, with which the client/acquaintance retorted, "no, doctor say not good enough, must take actual iron supplement or obimin". after that, the stupid fella straightaway shut up. HaH!!

- a pregnant woman going for a scan should always be accompanied by a family member as she won't be able to see the screen showing the baby because she's lying down... at least that's the case with his wife... i wonder, how was his wife lying down that she can't see the screen???

i just hope that the young woman doesn't believe anything he says as they are all FALSE!! gosh what a conman! i so wished that when the woman went in for her turn to see the doctor, he approaches me to sell something or just to strike up a conversation. i would have loved the opportunity to blast him to smithereens!! KA POW!

whinge whinge whinge

i've got so much to whinge about. i'm in such a bitchy whingey mood.

firstly, i really hate the new blogger. it sucks big time. there's so much i can't do, and there's so many bugs and shit. and the blogger support personnel are elusive and non supportive. they keep directing me to that shit ass blogger help group which does jack. and even when i eventually managed to email blogger support, the arsehole couldn't even read the email properly and just dispensed one of the usual textbook answer and even try to navigate me back to the damn blogger help group again. when i pointed out to him that he didn't even read my email correctly, the nutjob didn't even bother to reply. why am i still using blogger? well, let's see... 1) i've got way too much blogs and blog entries to move them somewhere else 2) what about the comments? 3) what about all those links and all that i've cultivated throughout? UURRGGHH!! i'm stuck with fucking blogger for now.

whinge number two. a lot of americans are freakin' deaf, blind and stupid... at least those that voted for sanjaya in the 2007 american idol. wtf??!! i was a fan of the little twat, but as the weeks progressed, he showed his weakness and flaws, no.. let me rephase that. he FLAUNTED his weakness and flaws, and yet these idiots are still wasting their effort and money to vote him back! he's not even cute!! he's got this annoying habit of wrinkling his big nose and opening that big gap in a what he passes off as a grin. URK!!

whinge No:3. in fact, this year's AI don't make good tv at all. the contestants are so bland and without any personality what so ever. the happening ones were eliminated earlier and what we have left are some who are awesome singers but i won't even think of buying any of their albums coz they are so bleakhhh.

whinge numero quattro. mph online is the pits. i wanted to order some books online as they do not have the book in the physical stores that went to. i found out that they are discriminatory to mac users, or rather non IE users. here below are the emails that went back and forth between me and some mph online personnel:

I am looking to order a book online, but i am having trouble doing so because your website only permits browser users of IE. I am using a mac computer and i use only either safari or firefox.

how do i go about ordering and paying for a book?

So basically you are telling me that i cannot make an online purchase because i use either safari or firefox on a mac computer, as IE6 cannot run on Mac computer. And that, should i want to make an online purchase, i'd have to use a PC running IE6.

Did i get it right?

warner... war-ner loser

chester bennington of linkin park was down here in malaysia recently and warner music was looking at my hubby to host his press con. it seems that chester remembered hubby from a few years ago and asked the warner dudes if hubby could do it.

there was to be 2 sessions. one in the morning and one in the afternoon. there's no way that hubby could do the morning session, but he agreed to the afternoon session. the dude from warner music malaysia said that only a minimal (if any) fee would be offered. hubby quoted for his lowest fee possible ever. heck, he'd do it for free! after all it is chester bennington, and hubby really liked this guy from before.

the dude from warner who dealt with this affair is such an incompetent poop. being my hubby's personal manager i had the misfortune of dealing with this nut. i think he balked at the fact that a token fee is requested. if he had the balls and had been honest about the whole thing and said that there'll be no fee, i would have happily said ok on behalf of hubby. instead, he gave me some cock and bull about not wanting to engage hubby coz he can't make it for the morning session and warner didn't want the hassle of having another briefing in the afternoon just for hubby. he kept pressing on the fact that hubby's company was the official host and they'll be very involved in the whole thing. eh, hello, duh!! as if i didn't know. i recommended some other personnel to host the thing, and the nut gave me some crap about these people not being professional or competent enough to do it. these people work would have been perfect for the job, it's just that they are not "big names" in the industry. that's not how you decline, you nut. how insulting can this representative from warner music malaysia get??

moffatt no more

i have a friend who's young, sweet and a cutie to boot. he's very metrosexual and always has his hair done up nicely.

adam recently lost a bet (read it here) and had to shave his head. every single luscious lock shorn off.

he used to remind me of a teeny bopper group from the 90s called "the moffatts". he's no longer a moffatt now, YaY!!!

useless crap excuse for a human being

at our wedding reception, we didn't have the normal guest registration book. we had an easel and some artsy fancy coloured paper with some silver inked pens for our guests to write on.

we wanted to get some frames to put up the coloured paper with the greetings after the wedding and didn't get around to doing it til recently. we were rudely reminded of an arsehole of a guest who scribbled profanities and crude, rude remarks all over the papers. we knew about the incident right after he did it and we kinda forgot about it until we took out them out to frame recently.

this fuck wit of a useless excuse for a human being was drunk and apparently he had beef with one of our guests from before. but this prick not only scribbled on that particular guest's well wishes, he wrote his crude remarks on all the pages, including those of our close friends and relatives. these people didn't even know who the fuck he was.

we had to 'censor' out his remarks by drawing hearts and all sorts of shapes to cover those graffiti.

this stupid josh of the special events works in a field where he has to deal with people all the time, he should have had at least some manners and self restraint. apparently not. no wonder he sucks at what he does. he's the kind of person who salivate at the mention of alcohol and is a blady alco who can't hold his fucking drink. he even fails as an alco. how sad.

i just wish upon him that someone or some event will mar the memories of his wedding day forever, like the way he did ours. what goes around, comes around. karma fucker, karma.
