Odd Recommendation

I've been so totally in love with The Mr.Brown Show ever since a friend introduced me to this great Podcast.

And when I say great, I mean great. *Wink*

If I can get my friends and even my colleagues to laugh as they listen to the show, I bet you would too (yes, you! You who are reading this right now!). HOWEVER, you might need to understand the culture and the beauty of the language of Singaporeans and Malaysian in order to catch the balls.

Let's get the ball rolling... the first show I'd like to recommend is The Mr. Brown Show: Parliamentary Language. But this one is exclusively for those who can understand Hokkien. If you can't, then you might need to get someone to translate it for you.

Alright folks, grab an earphone or turn on your speakers, click the link above, sit back and have a great laugh!

Unhygenic Hygene Bin

Sometimes, toilets can also be quite a place of interest. Don't you think so?

Due to the nature of my job that requires me to travel a lot, airport has been one of my most regular stops. And certainly, having to spend hours in the airport sometimes compels me to visit the toilet at least once before I board the plane.

I forgot where I've taken this photo, but one sure thing, it was in one of the airports I've been to. I was answering the nature's call one day, when I noticed how this blue bin was used.

In such an improper manner!! Tsk-tsk...

The 'red packet' was stuck on the lifter/cover. A piece of tissue paper was also seen -- that female human must have intended to throw it away with the 'red packet' but... well, she just couldn't care much to make sure that they go into the bin completely.

Can't totally blame the ladies too. I believe that the airport management has a role to play as well.

Ladies, I'm sure you have been taught in school or by someone what is the proper way to dispose of the 'overloaded' sanitary pad. Even if nobody told you how, you should be willing enough to read the short pictorial instructions regarding the correct way of disposal. Anyways, these bins are so user-friendly that I bet even the men know how to use them!

Please be more civic-minded, and think of the next user that will be disgusted at your bloody rubbish. Thank you so much.

Someone doubted me...

The more I think about it, the more puzzled I am. Am I that suspicion-looking? Well, I made a conclusion that -- my friend can't be blamed, as that is something abnormal but normal.

Looks familiar?
It all started 2 Saturdays ago. My two friends (new friends, we met not more than a year) brought me out to Parkson to buy sunblock. I don't really like to use sunblock, but this time, I really don't have much choice -- will tell you about that in my next post. So finally, after much shopping, we ended up visiting the cosmetics corner and my friend (pic) was given a free make-up (yeah right, where got free? She spent at least RM1000 for those moisturizers, cleansers etc.!) I couldn't believe that I had the chance to sit at the consultation corner and, besides painting myself with the eye shadows and powders (on my hands la~ of course), also I was aware that I was being watched. I even met another guy friend who spotted us -- my friend freaked out and quickly closed her face from being seen, because her make-up was only half done. Me, as usual... was laughing like mad when I saw how she reacted as the guy inspected her. Oh darrn... I forgot to snap a photo of her freakin' out. *LOL*

Clockwise: White-Vanilla peach; Brown-Expresso; Green-Minty Chocolate

Next, we ended up in an ice-cream shop, called Scoops. Just walk straight through the coffee shop near the Parkson carpark, and you will be able to find it quite easily. My friend told me that they sell branded ice-cream. I did a little 'research' on the internet yet I found nothing about it. So... is this really branded???!!! Do you know how much does a small cup cost? RM5!! Gosh!! But the taste was fantastic... they were creamy, thick, and they taste exactly what they are! Do I recommend it? Errms... if you are an ice-cream lover, go ahead, give it a try.

We were all sitting down to enjoy our ice-cream, and out of the blue, my another friend blurted a question at me...

Friend: Oddrey, what is your preference?
Me: *question mark appeared above my head* Errrmm... what did you say?
Friend: I asked... what is your sexual orientation?
Me: WHAT?! You must be kidding. *continued eating ice-cream*
Friend: No I'm serious. I don't mind what your preference is, I respect who you are.
Me: *sigh* I think I'm still attracted to men. ...

Wow. Amazing, eh? There's actually somebody who thought that I'm a homosexual! And kudos to her for so bravely voiced it out.

Does it mean that, if a girl/lady prefer putting on men's t-shirts and jeans/pants, then that girl/lady is a lesbian? Are tomboys lesbians? And how do you tell if a man is a gay or not? Can his outlook appearance tell? Or the way he dresses up? Or his gestures and behaviours? Hobbies? Habits?

I've never approved of homosexual acts (not human but acts). It is simply out of nature. But I respect all homosexual people. Nope, I'm not asking you to agree with me... your opinion is yours, mine is mine.

Anyone else who suspected that I'm a lesbian?

Utmost Appreciation

I would like to openly thank a person who has really helped me, not just in my career, but in every little thing in life.

I've never expected myself to be ever noticed, and I thought I would be keeping a low profile as long as I work in the company.

I had the shock of a lifetime when the boss gave me a compliment... at that moment, I couldn't really remember the things which he said I've done. I was still in the cloud of blurness until I suddenly realized that it was that colleague of mine who always prompted and pushed me to do most of the works I've done.

That compliment should go to you, my friend! I don't deserve it at all!

And I thank God for you. *smile*

I know you might never read this message, but ... Thank you again, Henry, from the bottom of my heart.

Bio-DaVersity Code?!

Click to watch the movie... or should I say, short clip. Worth the time, worth the effort...

The movie excerpt goes like this:

It is perhaps the greatest secrets of them all, but mankind continues to deny its existence. Follow the adventure of Robert Penguin and Sophie Minnow as they race against time to discover the secret of the web of life.

Ahh... beautifully described, indeed!

You may wonder-- What the heck is this?? A stupid animal clip that makes no sense at all!! Might as well pick up my ass and do somethin' elses, than sittin' round watchin' a senseless idiot f**king clip!!!

If I were standing right there in front of you when you made this remark, I'll also throw you some much shorter remark...

If it were not because of you, yes YOU, you idiot useless brainless cold-blooded only God-knows if you're a human, who loves puttin' money first and environment last and consequently destroying the Mother Nature and all the natural blessings that we humans rely on, we the environment lovers would not have to go all out and dry our brain juices just to think of a way to tell ya it's time to stop all the destructions!! Phiew... *taking a deep and long breath*

PLEASE join our effort in protecting the rich biodiversity. And destroy no more.
