that sneaky ah pek

OH MY GOD! HAHA. the most hilarious thing happened to me today. i was coming up the escalator from raffles place mrt on my way to my workplace, when i saw this lone ah pek, standing at the side of the landing of escalator, with a big red plastic bag at his feet, giving out flyers futilely to passers-by. you know how tough it is to be flyers-givers, you instantly become a taboo to the people, like you're carrying those conspicuously white and ringing tin cans doing your flagday. people try all their means to make a bee-line and manoeveur their way AWAY from you. it's a weird scene really, to see a sea of people suddenly parting and leaving an empty space right before you. hahah! or else if you're lucky some kinf-soul will take the flyers from you, then the next moment toss it into the nearest rubbish bin.

i guess i really have a soft spot for old ah peks can! usually i would have pushed my way away from those flyers-givers. but today, today!!! i saw this really exhausted-looking, okay somewhat ratty and sneaky looking ah pek giving out flyers. so at that moment i was determined to help him out by taking the flyers. however!! when i rose up the escalator, he actually held back his flyers and seemed hesitant about giving me the flyers! getting impatient, i held out my hand, beckoning him to pass me a flyer.

OKAY then i realised why.

DAMN it's a flyer about adult sex toys and shops! AHHHHH MY GOSH. maybe it doesn't really pay to be too kind bleargh. gosh! maybe next time i shudn't volunteer myself to take any random flyers. but how could they give out such immoral and porno flyer in the heart of a CBD!? RAHHH i'm sucha a jerk. sex toys, anyone?

senseless rantings

GOSH it has certainly been long since my last entry. HAHA. i guess blogging isn't in my genes, it's hard to imagine how some people actually bothers to lobg everyday! mamamia. okay i've got roughly 5 mins to blog before i have to zoom off to work (i dread it!!) since there isn't really anything much to do in 5 mins, not youtube, nor doing my sababticals reflection, i guess i'll just blog about the days in singapore for the benefits of my friends in china! HITHERE. hahaha

anyway basically, my job really sucks. i've to call those people up for maagzines subscription and usually their existing subscription does not end till like 8 mths later. so if i were in their shoes, i would be equally pissed off like some of the people i encountered while doing my round of callings.
another scenario is that while you were reciting on and on about the special promotion for the renewal subscriptions, which is already so deeply ingrained in our heads that i'm afraid i will bebgin chanting in the middle of the night, some people are just really kind enough to go "UH HUH" and prompt you. so then, you feel this glimmer of hope, like you're going to clinch another deal soon. then after you finish explaining the promotion, those "kind" people usually go, "MMMMM.. i don't think i'm interested (apologetically)." DAMN DAMN DAMN! it's such a huge blow, dude! like i have just rose to heaven and in a split second i was flung back to hell. this is especially excruciating after you have spent your entire day calling incessantly.

sigh. i guess working ain't as easy as i thought it to be initially. but well, anyone interested in subscribing to TIME, HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW, FORTUNE OR THE ECONOMIST!!?
special year-end promotion! don't miss it.

THE ADVENTURE

HAHAHAH!! i should seriously blog about this really. you know how things usually are, when you "talk so big but no action"?! it's like you have this really beeg and ambitious plan stuck in your head and yet you just couldn't find the time or resources or even motivation to get it started? ALRIGHT so we got enough of all these nonsense and decided to make SOMETHING happen. so here you go, me and meijie's midnight adventure. BWAHA.

yeaa i'm simply gonna just narrate the whole flow of events in very simple language cause my engrish is poor. i'm lazy to think of fanciful engrish.

YEAP so its friday and me and meijie and jasmin stayed in school till 5 plus to do some last minute touch-up on our funfair stall the next day. then jasmin went home and me and meijie bathed in school. ya and i forgot my towel so i have to use meijie's one. URGHH i thought of using the "tissue dabbing" method introduced by joyce and shishuang, but forget it since i trust meijie so much that she doesn't have any terminal disease. cause we're both believers of "anti pre-maritial sex"!! yeah sorry for the digression. THEN we took a bus to cityhall where we dine overlooking the finest view of singapore! our nightview is seriously magnificent i tell you. the esplanade and all the CBD buildings and singapore river blahhh. HAHAA OH YAAA by the way we ate from this stall that has this uncle who can say like 100 xiexie (thankyou) in one minute and constantly chanting his slogan "NO GOOD CAN RETURN". so whatever happen to our bottom five ranking as the most courteous country in the world? i say those survey are always done only in a micro level and are rarely accurate. they're doing certain groups of singaporeans unjustice by branding our country as one of the most un-courteous country in the world. but seriously i rather think that chanting uncle is over-doing it.

YAA then cause our original plan is to go midnight k-boxing right. so right after dinner we decided to catch some twenty winks before we begin our night. ya and mac is the place to sleep ok. we chope this used table with this empty tray and packet of fries, plop ourselves down and SLEEP. those workers at mac probably thought the pack of fries was ours and din't disturb us. HAHA me and meijie were so close to opening a room at hotel 81 can! but, remember the magical word "budget". YAA we were sprawled on the tables and the sleeping ain't exactly very comfortable. as i drifted in and out of sleep, i heard this lil girl from a table next to us asking his parents "what are they (yes, us, the sleeping pigs) doing? are they sleeping..... or crying?" her voice is totally guileness and cute can! yea but then i get really grouchy when i m deprived of sleep so i nearly wanted to say wahlao to that lil girl. but i din't okay.

yeap then we woke up at around 10 plus and took a train down to somerset to cineleisure. we wanted to watch siletn hill but then the timing clashed with our k-boxing plan. so we ditched silent hill and embrace midnight kboxing. WAHA yea before that me and meijie had a pact that we'll record our voices and let our friends judge the next day. yeap so we sang and blahh and TRY to get high. HAHA got some parts quite funny lah but then only two of us can. BUT QUITE HIGH LAH HORH. yeahh damn stupid we sang through like 4 songs then realise we forgot to switch on our mics. yaa then we ordered vodka and beer. HAHA shud have gone to cheers first then go up. then we sang till 3am and by then desperately in need of a place to just collapse and sleep.

HAHAH and we decided to camp outside cathay can! you know that purplish sofa outisde the arcade, yaa so we settled down and sleep. i was really bushed man i fell asleep almost instanly while meijie stayed awake for awhile and still super hyper. YAA THEN WE GOT CHASED AWAY BY THE SECURITY GUARD. DAMNNN. NO SLEEPING IS NOT ALLOWED.HUMPH. PATHETIC CAN. when have u got to try so hard just to find a place to sleep man! totally demoralised shit. maybe we shud just camp under a flyover.

ya then we took a cab to KAP and slept outside on the coffee tables where we met this pair of lesbians. we overheard one of them telling the other girl "i like your breasts". totally random can!! yea so we slept again, it was already 4am by then. then we woke up at 545. went into mac and had breakfast. HAHAHA totally shagged can. then hafta spent the entire day helping out at funfair. HAHA our game is really funny. shan't elaborate. super lazy. OKAY THATS ALL FOLKS.

REEEEEVAMMP



CREDITS TO DENYSE!! i can't imagine how a computer noob like me can survive without professional guidance from denyse. i don't even have the slightest idea how to change a bloody template (!), made worse by my old rickety netscape browser which loads at a speed of 5min/page, no kidding. WHEEE i loveee this template! that striking lime green color is sure to shock anyone awake, compensating for my "rather-dull" content ehh ;)

I LOVE DENYSE. I LOVE DENYSE. I LOVE DENYSE

hahaa and not forgetting the original founders of this blog! YIXIN AND QIANWEN =D i still remember that afternoon when we went over to yixin's place and got trapped in the highly teadious and torturous process of creating this blog. i was probably lazing in the background while yixin was right smack in front of the computer helping me fix my settings :D THANKS BABES

HAHA i'll continue the legacy of mahjongkaki.

*damned i still don't know how to fix the clock.. bleagh can't be bothered---- 1.18am

damned. how do you fix the clock huh. mind you it's 1.46am 30May now

Posted by Jiali at 1:48 AM

hahah i'm finally back! =D it's seriously kinda crazy to blog so late at night, but i just got this sudden unknown motivation to blog... probably inspired by the very sudden blogging craze in my class. i know i should really work on my LA portfolio now :S still have few more pieces to edit, i'm somewhat done but the quality is really mediocre. never mind i'll look into it later (: i think the portfolio had triggered this "writing" instinct in me.

bleagh i just got this wave of depression washed over me suddenly after reading so many blogs. even songs can make me tear for no reason. madness huh. i'm just feeling real weird today.. hearing stories about people and stuff. human beings are so complex. gullible-- i realise i have sub-consciously assumed that i know other people well.. when sometimes i don't even understand myself. it reveals such a narrow perception i have. superficial-- sometimes someone whom you thought is most scheming may instead be the one who's in the truest and purest of form. the others you least suspect may in turn become someone beyond your wildest imagination.

many times i have heard stories of someone whom i thought i know well portrayed as a foreign person that i would never have imagined. i know i shouldn't get affected by these hear-say stories too much, but whether or not it's real and fiction, it does say something about the dark nature of men. why would someone have two faces, or why would someone thought of starting this fallacy in the first place.. we are in fact the very victim of the sin we have committed ourselves, aren't we? we are living in this sea of delusion and uncertainty, i'm afraid i'm sinking.

great.. i see this blog is really a nice place to put in random thoughts in me that always pop out from nowhere. maybe i should give this blog a REVAMP! SHIT i need technical assistance. help, anyone? OKAY i shall ask denyse for help =D


CHEERS.

maybe someday i'll look back and laugh at myself

I MUST BLOG TODAY


I TOLD MYSELF I MUST BLOG TODAE.

I hate people who sleep with NO SKILL

RIGHTS, dun get the wrong idea, my blog definitely aint gonna promote the idea of sexuality (blurps) nor am i gonna publish my nude pictures anytime soon (no offence but wait a few years later den see lah) but i am just so FRIGGIN pissed todae den i just have to blog!! or i will burst! it aint anything too SERIOUS anyway but it is a COMMON problem we ALL may encounter in some days of our lives. just tad mine comes sooner. (sheesh does this sound a little too sick?)

ok so i shall relate my incident todae on this world wide web, and let the earlier-bloomers out there u re not ALONE.i am a victim of that fateful incident too...

rights, so todae was a reli typical day and blahh, went back to school for my SIA (kae cut the crap, i am digressing) but anyway, i just boarded my bus back home after a day's hard work, not knowing that the bus 171 i had waited for a hell of a long time will turn out to be a HELL RIDE HOME...

GREAT. and so i got myself a seat on the bus, and a HCI guy sat beside me. you tink it is romantic, sweet and every nanyang's fantasy?!

NO...

and so there i sat with a trembling heart from ecstacy (yeah right) but anyway, halfway through my journey, which i remembered vividly from the standard chartered bank off bukit timah rd onwards, the HCI guy dozed off. and yeah tads a real common side. but there u have it, the venue, the time, the partner (sitting partner yes)... and u cant even SLEEP with at least a little more skills?!

and at the next moment, the guy's head just started "lolling" and going round and round in circles of different sizes yet perfectly concentric. and round and round 360deg. and den........ he just started leaning his WHOLE, ENTIRE, COMPLETE., ALL, TOUT, QUANBU weight on me!!! i swear his whole fcking weight was on my poor little arm. den next comes the BUMPING TREATMENT. his head continued lolling to and forth, the poor bespectacled, be--pimpled, be-earphoned guy constantly bumped into my poor old arm. i swear i never got such intensive massage on my arm before like this. guess i gained a few muscles huh? right more like BLUE-BLACKS.

and so the guy continued bumping and leaning his weight on me while i was tryin hard to support his weight with my arm, wad real workout i say. i could have fairly well give him a super duper hard nudge into his ribs with my elbow, but i guess i better avoid the embarrassment of the poor guy falling onto the ground, kneeling and kowtowing to me begging for myMERCY.

AND SO I HELD ON. dun sae tad i m stoopid or mousy or anything. but i m supposed to keep my composure in public okk. i cant be seen displaying my pirated (certificate bought with money) black belt in karate in public right. but eventually my nightmare stops when i alighted the bus.

well yes i do have my fair share of dozing off unsightly on the bus before. but cant the poor guy just sleep with more skills!! he shud jsut keep his head in one spot and stop lolling around like mannequins with a faulty neck or something. aiyah dunno how to sae also. lets just sae his head is lolling round and round like a lollipop.

however, looking at a bigger picture, shall we just quit dozing off on the bus??!! SLEEPING, should just be "carried out" on the bed solely and onlyl! the bus seats aint for u to loll oyur head around to the rhytnm of the wheels of the bus go round and round.

maybe we shud just start cultivate our society to be a more "reading and literature" one. like how i always hear my teachers going on about japanese liking to read on buses or mrts while we the studetns complain to teachers den reading on transport vehcles give us nausea and headache and myopic bullshitt. maybe we shud just start a campaign like READ MORE ON PUBLIC TRANSPORT CAMPAIGN instead of spotting old uncles reading jockey's guide (or waddevah u call it) or aunties carefully making notes of wad 4D may come out in the next draw on the bus. we shud just read MORE!!!


well, to be honest, i have been kinda aching to read my darhling chinese literature text cum chinese literary world classic "sanguoyanyi" (romance of the 3 kingdoms) and "hongloumeng" (dreams of the red chambers??!!) on the bus. but the thought of suddenly brandishin such classics from my bag kinda put me off.

u see....

not all people appreciate reading on the bus. some may just sneer at u for being such idiots for reading instead of listening to your ultra duper cool MP3 and discman (probably passe by now) . i dun think we singaporeans will ever be initiated to read on the bus, and i guess perhaps a campaign cna be a pretty good headstart for such trends.. lala at least i tiink so, the mousey student hu dindnt dare read those classics she was painfully assigned to reading for chi lessons on the bus.

after having said all that, lets go back to the point of being bumped and squashed by inconsiderate sleepers on the bus.... u may think i m making a ultra dooper beeg fuss out of such little things in life, but i feel that that is a sad reflection of singaporeans being citizens hu prefer using our traveling time sleeping rather den takin in more vocabs or phrases in our wordbanks by reading. and besides these nitty gritty comments on such minor stuff are probably wad that keep blogging ALIVE.......


lalala my blog is alive!!
