Koala Bear Joke :
A koala bear was approached by a prostitute. Since he had never been with one before, he was curious and excited. They spent the night together in a hotel, and he went down on her one last time before departing.

As he was heading for the door, the prostitute yelled, “Hey! What about my money?” The koala turned, gave her a puzzled look, and shrugged his shoulders. She said, “Come here,” and pulled a dictionary out of her purse. She pointed to the word “prostitute” and its definition: “has sex and gets paid”

Finally understanding, the koala borrowed her dictionary, turned to the word “koala”, and showed her: “eats bush and leaves”

Friend seriously, phone is going down the shitter day by day. Its either get new charger or battery or just buy a phone? Technically, I could just switch back to the old sony ericsson. But me, being me wants a new purdy toy to play with….! Even though getting a new charger is probably the cheapest option at this point of time based on the lack of a job! How I miss those days with the tyrannt. Hell, I should start the Help me buy a new phone fund!

My list:

1. Sony Ericsson K790
2. M600i

booooo friend i give up! add more to list sooon…..

Returning to Sephora:

1) Prada’s The Devil Wears Prada Tendre Set: Why? B/c the miniatures are smaller than I had expected. The Prada Intense it too intense and even though I love amber scents, this one made everyone around me go into a sneezing and wheezing fit. The original is nice and I might consider buying a full bottle, but there are more appealing amber scents out there (like Hermes Ambre Narguile). The newest addition to the Prada family is the Tendre scent, which I find is too distant from the other 2. Grouchy said I smelled like her grandpa. Nice, but that’s not who I’d like to remind you of. Besides, it’s too generic and synthetic.

2) Fresh’s Cannabis Santal: Grouchy calls it the “fuk me” scent. I don’t know what’s she’s been doing and where (j/k!!) but it does smell masculine and a bit sweaty at times. Like it, but is making me nauseous these days. I’m beginning to find that I like amber a lot, but patchouli is iffy (Cannabis Santal, Prada and Angel has it). If I really can’t take it I’ll just get a decant or a sample, not full bottle worthy. Oh how I wish it worked on me!

The Singaporean and Peranakan in me has been craving good local food. So I’ve started up a list of the foods I’ld want to eat if given a chance to back and eat my way through the island. The list will continue to grow till that time.

1.Buah Keluak-its almost stew like, rich and thick black broth with chicken or short ribs and nuts from Kepayang tree. Diehard Peranakan dish! buah keluak
2. Char kuay teow I’ll settle for the Singapore version. Though personally, the Penang Char Keow Teow (chinese version) is tastier and can’t be compared.
char keow teow

3. Murtabak-friend its like prata but inside its filled with either mutton, beef or chicken then crack a couple eggs fry it up and eat. Murtabak

4. Putu piring-made by the malay lady, its small and round with a filling of coconut and gula melaka. Perfect for tea time or breakfast. Putu Piring getting steamed Putu Piring
5. Ice Kachang

6. Roti Prata-I swear by the one at Upper Thompson road as a late night snack and of course, for breaky with some orange sugar. Prata-Upper Thompson Road

7. Beef Hor Fun and Tau Huay from Geylang side by side its a perfect combo. Noodles first then some dessert!
8. Ipoh Hor Fun and/or Kuay Teow soup kuay teow soup
