#nonsense X’mas reunion

Met up my old pals from channel #Nonsense….the IRC days!

Upon reaching Union Sq, Nana was complaining that how come so many Ohjisan and Obasan was hanging  at the entrance. she said ” U all are old, but why must make me feel old too”… I very old meh??

The angel at the entrance escorted us to our table and whaa…. saw a few old faces.  They have order a bottled of Scotch Macallan , a bottle or 2 bottles of Wolf Blass Shiraz and 5liter tower beer!

It was quite quiet in the beginning,  like I mention there isn’t much to catch up since we meet like once a month. We decided to start playing some games to get everybody warm up.

Jules is really slow in playing games…..she keeps losing and drinking every round! Soon, we were all warm up from the drinks and …..its camera time. We took like 140+ photos and I appear in 80% of them. I’m posing in almost every shot and I was eventually crowned the Cam Whore.

I think everyone had fun over there and i think alcohol do makes alot of difference in merry making!

A belated Merry Christmas & a happy new year!

Sleep

They say that as you get older you tend to sleep less. Not sure how true it is, but whatever it is I think its taking effect on me!
I can’t seems to sleep more than 6hrs or so. The bloody in-built alarm clock seems to wake me up daily whenever 6hrs is up.
Even though I had a couple of drink or no matter how much exerciseI had done that day … it just keep waking me up! ARgh….

Well.. here I am.  in the middle of the night typing this post coz I slept at 7pm and my in-built alarm clock just woke me up at 1am!! Argh… again!

—————-

Was suppose to shut down the company from last Thursday till this Tuesday for the festive holiday, but apparently alot of things r happening and I’m forced volunteered to come back during Friday and Monday to help settle some stuffs. I’m a workaholic I think!

—————-

Went lunching with Nana of Friday at Pan Pac and I think Nana loves the food there. I think we will make it a monthly event to dine there just to try out the culinary skills from their different chef there. Great food  with great presentation.. Thumbs up from me! Oh.. not to mention their homemade bread is extremely tasty and no bread came close to it after that!

Anyway I’ll also plan to bring Nana to try the food out at Pontini and Top of the M. I hope Nana will like the food there too!

———————-

After lunch, we went photo shooting with my new toy and Nana is my model for the day. I’m still a noob in DSLR photography and I took a awfully long time just to get the correct setting. OK maybe not so correct after all. I’ve develop some of the photos and it comes out OK..but not jaws dropping! It lack of some punch. I seriously need to brush my skills up so I can’t wait to start the DSLR classes and get some serious tips.

—————

I’ll attempt to get some sleep again and hopefully it I can get another 6hrs of sleep….. anyone knows how to kill in in-built alarm clock besides killing me?

DSLR

I’ll be getting my first DSLR. After much research from the net. I’ll be get a EOL model, the Alpha A100. I think its one of the best model in the amateur class. Although there is a saying “A poor workman always blame its tools”

I’m a total idiot when it comes to handling DSLR camera. I went to a few shops and tried handling them, i think everyone knows how to grab it. But when they put in the batteries…hahha… I dun even know which button to press and click to test the camera. But I do know about the some facts about aperture size and shutter speed. I do hope I’ll pick it up fast and start snapping some serious photos.

Anyway I’ll be shooting landscapes and some abstract.

Small things I splurge on

I scaled Bukit Timah Hill again yesterday. Tried running there to meet my relatives but something happen mid way & I’m force to take a bus there. Its getting easier to climb up now and that goes for Nana.

We adjourned to the near by hawker to have our usual breakfast, and this time we ordered hell lots of food. Damn all that exercising seems to have gone to waste. haha. After the breakfast, some of us pop by NTUC finest for some shopping. We bought the 2 most expensive there.

1) The Most expensive apple you can find there, 1 for $7.80
2) The Most expensive Chips you can find there, 1 for $1.80 (its like less than 50grams)

Well…its all worth it I must say.The apple is extremely juicy and the the Chips taste very close the French fries and its very addictive. I think there are less that 30 chips in a bottle.

My next splurge will be the near $100 honeydew. Hehe. Will write a review if I really splurge on it!

Topic on marriage n kids

Was chatting with Gina on MSN this morning and she ask if I getting married? Hmm..what kind of question is that to be ask early in the morning?

Here is my reply to some of her Question

Q : When you getting married?
A: Not getting married!

Q: U planning to have Kids?
A: Yes, but you don’t need to get married to have kids right?

Q: Then how about the birth cert?
A:  Put the mum name then. I can be the guardian!

Q: You are selfish!
A: Selfish to who? I’m only selfish to those who can’t accept this idea! Its my commitment with my partner. What has that   go to do with others? I don’t need a cert to have kids. I don’t need a cert to prove that we are happily together!DO I?
As long as we are happy, who cares, why should we put on a show in front of others?

Wedding Bells

Like the title says its gonna be a post on wedding, but I ain’t the one ringing the bells.

Since December 2007!!! I’ve attended 3 wedding function, 1 lunch & 2 dinner. My weekend was pack, I’ve to push away a few task on hand which I had plan to do because it.

I must say, its just a joyous December when the holidays r not even here yet. This December is jus gonna burn away with celebrations. 3 wedding in 2 weekends is striking some cords in me. To me wedding dinner are always so joyous but behind or after it, I often heard complaints about things being different after marriage. Love isn’t as expected as before. Whaa… I really think I got phobia in marriage perhaps the lack of confidence that I can be a good husband. Hmm…or I should say, I doubt I’ll still be appreciated as a husband. Sometimes when environment changes, people changes and expectation rises. The pursuit to meet everyone expectation is just not for me. At times I just can’t be bothered about it. If U ain’t happy, go away and carry on with another life w/o me then! I’m just a wicked man. Sigh…sad to say!

enough babbling…perhaps I’m still waiting for a love to get me home.

Enjoy the video or song.
