More belated coverage on my recent December holidays!
But first things first!
Check out what I did to my aircon remote control:
Most of the leopard print fur sticker sheets have sold out in the first post. I did however restock and they are in this album on Flickr! I’ve not put it up on the Sticker Monster blog yet. See, the benefits of being a Jayelleenelial.com reader…:P
Here’s a photo of what’s new at The Sticker Monster and links to my new posts.
If you’re a true blue online Malaysian shopaholic, you would have heard of Fleur De Lis, jointly organized by Shirts4Real and A Shopaholics Den. Esther and her friends Jan, Brian and Sze May to name a few, are the people behind Shirts4Real! Can’t believe one of my bestest friend in the whole wide world organized a bazaar! And this was her first time at a bazaar too!
A Shopaholics Den has a strong presence in the Malaysian blogshop community and thus publicity was a breeze! But if you’re organizing a flea market and you invite blogshops to come open stalls at your bazaar, lifestyle ezines such as TongueChic, Emmagem or other famous blogshop review sites will pick it up and promote for you! But never be greedy with your rentals, RM80 should be the cut off.
I was wondering if it would be a mistake to drag Chee Kiang there… but he even bought a shirt! Haha. Anyway, this is too ancient, so I can’t really remember what else happened that night.
Chee Kiang and I with Esther and Sze May who were handling the registration table. I could’ve gotten a table last minute..grrrrrrrrrrr!!! My stickers need to be cleared to make way for newer ones!
Mimpi Murni, she’s always at the bazaars!
It was kind of stuffy as it was in a bungalow, but if you wants bargains, what’s a few buckets of sweat right?
Something to distract the boyfriends.
Look who I met there! Haze! The beauty maestro behind BlushBerry also happens to be one of Lie Yuen’s friends from high school. Small world, small world.
I BOUGHT A PALETTE, yes i did.
As it was a real house, there were many convenient places for the sellers to hang their wares.
He totally enjoyed being the only male at any given room.
Sigh, I’m so happy to be part of this era where bazaars and flea markets are all the rage and it’s still quite underground where young people open stalls at bazaars organized by equally young people.
This is Jan, who poured his sweat and blood into making the event a success. Shirts4Real is going places!
I bumped into Eliza from Phatculture. I was introduced to her partner, but as we all know how bloody ancient my posts are these days, I’ve already forgotten her name. 🙁 I’m SO SORRY!! 🙁
Awww, isn’t Eliza cute? Eliza and I were blogger friends from way back in 2005/2006. So she’s an old timer like me. 🙂 We met for the first time that night.
Since Esther was part of the organizing committee, Chien and Min Dee came to give their support and bought a bag each! I spent about RM150 there. 😡
These were the lucky vendors who did not have to cram inside the house with the rest of the sellers.
Another super long ago thing that happened was when Sook Mei, one of my Year 3 juniors, asked me to take a puppy in my car back to KL. This puppy, whose name is Noobie, but whom I christianed Bolt for the two days it was with me, was from a litter of puppies by a pair of husband and wife strays. It’s pretty good looking for a stray dog, don’t you think?
Poor little Noobie actually has two other siblings and of course, a mum and a dad. But one afternoon when my juniors were at uni, the MPSP (Majlis Perbandaran Sungai Petani) people came by and kidnapped two puppies and the two adult dogs. Noobie and his brother, Stupidoo (yea. I know.) were hiding under a dust pan at that time and were safe from the evil MPSP dog takers. Sounds like a Disney Pixar movie plot. This is when the two dog brothers would start talking with teenage boys’ voice
He’s quite the poser too! Since that bunch of juniors were afraid that the MPSP dognappers will come back for the rest, they put the two puppies at another classmates’ house. This house has three floors and it houses six boys. So just imagine lah, six guys taking care of two puppies, you’d think it’s all a bowl of dog biscuits once every three days with dog biscuits strewn all over the kitchen and five days old dog poo.
Which would probably happen if the puppies stayed with me. Thank god hamster poo is almost invisible!
If you’ve seen my other posts, you might remember names such as Melvin, Tee Lun, Samuel, CY, Ken and Kelvin. All these manly boys are the daddies and mummies to the two pups!
CY is the one who feeds them and scolds them! I think he bathes them too!
Samuel will be following behind with a mop to clean up any peepee or poopoo.
Tee Lun, whom I thought would have nothing to do at all with the two dogs, actually goes to sleep with the puppies on his bed!
<3 <3.. such sweethearts!
And boys being boys, they couldn’t be bothered with names so they simply called the two pups Stupid and Noob. Then Ei Leng dropped by and gave it a feminine twist, Stupidoo and Noobie!
Poor Noobie feeling very wary about the mess in my room.
He wanders on into the mess. Brave dog.
He keeps walking.
Then he got tired.
Since this little doggie has passed through so many dental students’ hands, I thought it would be apt to photograph him with my trusty molar container.
He’s looking for his good side.
Since he’s still a puppy, he needed to be entertained. Thought the tofu might keep him occupied for awhile.
He’s so fluffy and fat!!
|And he just loves tummy rubs!! 🙂
Coz dogs maketh good camwhoring props.
I introduced him to my hamsters.
The hamster looks like it was trying to tell me something.
Noobie keeps an eye on the hamsters, just in case they get up to no good, like kicking woodchips out of the cage or bite annoyingly on the metal bars.
Here’s Noobie in his box, where he slept for the entire four hour ride.
He wonders why the box, him and the tofu are of the same colour.
What a good doggie!
Gotta love the way he sleeps! <3
I brought him home before Sook Mei’s mum came from Klang to pick Noobie up. Mum wanted to bluff dad that we have a new dog in our house.
Angel started to feel left out.
Trying to get them to be friends. Angel just doesn’t like playing with other dogs.
Look at Angel’s face lah! So lanci!
But she looks extremely depressed..probably thought that her status as Cutest Dog In The House was threatened.
Must comb nice nice before taking photos.
Angel still didn’t bother to get acquainted with Noobie.
Angel went to get some ego boosting from Chee Kiang who always acknowledges that she’s the cutest dog in the whole wide world! Right, dear?
See?!! She’s smiling again! Compare the photos, you can see the difference!
This was after Noobie went home to Klang and Angel was back to her normal self.
December usually means everyone’s home for the holidays! From UK, Us, Aussie…they were all home. 🙂
Save for Abby, Liss, Amanda and Mel (who was in Australia visiting her…wait for it..FIANCE!), the other seven of us Dahlings met up for dinner on Christmas day.
So yeah, a few days before Christmas, all of us got the same message from an Aussie number, “HE PROPOSED!!!”
And that picture is us, drinking Ocha to Mel’s engagement to a Dahling-approved Tim Murphy. Her kids are going to be gorgeous! The wedding’s not until 2012, so hold your horses! You may go to her facebook and comment on the photo of her engagement ring if you wanna send your love. 🙂
It’s been so long since we’ve had pictures of us together. She Dee still can’t surf even though she’s been in Hawaii for two years now! Esther has graduated and I know it’s so mean of me, but i hope she doesn’t get a job too soon or else there won’t be anyone to play with me when I go home to Subang!! 🙁 We go out almost everyday together when I’m back home.
For the sake of that cute face in the middle.
Haih, just coz we haven’t been doing this for aÂ looong time.
Esther and the ball. 🙁
I’m totally losing my skills. This was meant to be one of those slutty smooching pics.
So I did what I do best: Being a busy body.
Next door neighbour Mun Teng wants in on the goss.
Now that Munty is slogging it out in the corporate world, I hardly see her. So this photo is a good reminder of how she looks like.
Seriously, my camwhoring skills have deteriorated.
Yee Hou was right about how my Canon Ixus 80IS is not exactly camwhoring friendly.
It was one of those nights where we said No Boys!
As a punishment for crashing a girl’s night out and with Chien’s help, I stuffed Ji Yang’s box of cigarettes down my my cleavage. A new box of cigarettes! I’m all about tough love! Smoking kills, this is how I educate my friends.
People from school would know that my cleavage have been used as storage space for a few other things. Hand phones, liquid papers…. etc. When I say hand phones, I’m talking about the trusty hardy big ass Nokia 3310.
When I look at Min Dee I think about the ceramic plate she brought over for Christmas 2007, which I keep promising to return. Argh. Min Dee is living the corporate (intern) life, enjoying life in HK. I want to go to HK too~~ T__T
I’ll be losing one of my best friends to that melting pot (salad bowl?) called Singapore. 🙁
She’ll go there and produce many stressed out kids with Mr. Shawn! 🙁
Sush is now at KPMG in UK, making them pounds and coming home to SPEND SPEND SPEND!
Just trying to be generous with my camera. With all the individual shots in my camera, one of them might be picked up to be a Facebook profile photo by one of the girls.
it’s not fair if my role was solely to be the camerawoman right?
That’s Min Dee being Min Dee. Talking at the speed of light with equally fast hand movements.
Nah, Sush, You want this as your facebook profile pic ah?
l-r: Min Dee and She Dee.
Gonna be a year till I see all of them in one place, at the same time again.
After leaving Pyramid, Chee Kiang told me he was at McD’s Drive Thru with Gaya, Wern Cheen and Eu Foh. They were all my form4-5 classmates and I’ve not seen them in quite a long time. In form4 we all sat at the back of the class doing our own thang while the teacher rambles on in front.
We adjourned to Gaya’s place that night where we updated each other about whatever we knew about anyone from Subang Utama. There were some shockers.. but for fear of getting chopped into bits by the subjects (and I mean this literally), I’d better not say.
Wern Cheen laughed about our ex class teacher who only taught our class Agama Islam. This means that we got away with quite a lot of things, or so we thought. During open day, our teacher told Wern Cheen’s mum, “Ah……Wern Cheen kini dalam alam percintaan.” Seems like he knows quite a bit about Wern Cheen’s love life.
I didn’t get away too easily too! My class teacher told my mum, “Aahh.. Ini Lai Pei Shan selalu bersama itu Lam Chee Kiang. Belajar dulu…” and I’m all, “Wat…”. I looked at my mum and she sniggered. -_-”
All he thinks about is puppy love/romance issit? Deprived issit?
L-r: Eu Foh, Myself and Chee Kiang.
It felt weird to go to the same place and be in a different car from my boyfriend. Can you see himin the car behind Eu Foh?
The next morning, I had breakfast with Kyle, Elizabeth and Esther. Was great to just catch up and ask each other the usual FAQS (so when graduating?/working where?/got girlfriend ah?).
Elizabeth who is looking really really good since I last saw her!
I present to you the many faces of E Yon Kyle. His facial expressions are the best! And this is just him being his normal self.
Sigh, good ol’ Kyle. He still looks the same since Standard 6. 🙂
Eli and Kyle.
With an Esther.
And finally a Jolene.
When Brenda was down from Penang, we went to Sg. Wang and met up with Sohpoh whose real name is Lee Peng. But we were so used to calling her Sohpoh, we kind of forgot her real name. Haha, I was quite sure it was something Peng.
Sohpoh is our mutual online friend whom we met via both our blogs. We got acquainted because she is a dental student as well! She’s a semester younger than us and is currently pursuing her fourth year in Australia.
We compared disgusting dental stories but we were most horrified by one case:
One of her seniors accidentally drilled into the floor of the mouth and the bur got stuck there. To remove the bur, they had to set it to spin anticlockwise (or opposite of whichever direction it was). How traumatizing for the student and the patient!
l-r: Soh Poh, Myself and Brenda.
Though it was the first time we met Sohpoh in person, we got on like a house on fire! A particularly memorable part of the whole thing was when I cajouled them to come into a sex shop with me.
Yep, that’s right. There’s a sex shop in Sg. Wang and not just some lame candy store that sells happy looking condoms and other paraphernalia laced with sexual inuendos. Trivia: I was kicked out of I Need House when I was 16, posing as a 19 year old.
So anyway, we sauntered in, acting cool. Go in sex shop must act cool one okay, cannot giggle like you’re young. Or not later they asked for IC.
But we ended up giggling anyway when we spotted a long curved dildo kind of thingamajig that was called “Double Trouble Slender Bender”. But they didn’t ask for our IC even though we acted like total juveniles. I must menyerah kepada takdir already that nobody will ever ask for my ID ever.
Go into casino also nobody stop me, go into club also like that, go into sex shop and act like a kid, still nothing. *squirts antiwrinkle cream and rubs on cheek sadly*
It was quite awkward as the shop was totally empty and only three of us went in. It was manned by about 5 guys to add on to the awkwardness. And if things weren’t awkward enough, one of the guys was being a hard sell.
“Ahh.. this one very good one! Must try!”
They were initially playing some lala jengjeng songs but when we were there, they put on some Westlife songs to accomodate us. And not just any Westlife song, it was “If I Let You Go.”
Default song that banana girls like issit?
Back to the story about the long rod that was called Double Trouble Slender Bender. The sales assistant saw us looking at it and went on to say, “Aaaahh.. boys and girls also can! Girl on girl, boy on boy, boy and girl…..”. The dildo was a two ended dildo, so there was no base, nothing. Just a long curved acrylic rod with the anatomy of a shaft and a head.
Dildos were selling for like RM200 and above! Must be high quality stuff. If there were dildos for less than Rm50, they are probably made in China and imagine if it explodes! Oh yeah.
If I’m not mistaken I saw fleshlights too.Â If you don’t know what it is, google it. I was told that they even have little girl ones!!! *traumatized*
So … if any of you need anything.. there’s a shop in Sg. Wang. Just saying.
Brenda was the shopping monster for the day. My damage was done on another day, during CNY. 🙂 Blog post later. Ya I promise, ok!
Brenda’s got style.
This is about the night where we duped by a very misleading message that Gaya received.
A friend of her’s texted her saying, “I’m planning for a glamourous, classy, sophicated night at *some bar at Starhill*. Free drinks for the ladies till 1am!”
Thinking that we had to follow some kind of theme, she roped the two of us to join her and dressed up for what sounded like a promising event with free drinks.
Us on the Federal Highway, doing the obligatory.
Since we were still early, we decided to head across to Pavillion and grab a bite. Maklumlah, we wanted to arrive fashionably late. Ahem.
Some good shit bun slathered with butter that Gaya discovered at Coffee Bean.
Me appreciating the good shit bun.
LOL. Dear, Russel Peters said don’t roll your eyes remember. 😛
I think it was sometime after this photo when she got another text from her friend.
“Seems a little dead here. We’re heading over to Changkat Bukit Bintang. Feel free to join us!”
It seemed a *little* weird that someone who was organizing an event, would walk out on it because it was dead!? After analyzing earlier messages, we realized that the guy was actually asking Gaya to bring some friends to join them on a glamourous, classy and sophisticated night out. And then the bar was too boring for him, he adjourned to Changkat with his friends.
Quite dramatic right this fella.
It’s only normal for normal people like us to think it was an event and dress up like fools, anticipating an event with free drinks.
LOL we decided we might as well make the most of it and went to the bar anyway. It was super dead but we had fun camwhoring with the beautiful furnitures around that bar.
With velvet plushy cushions!
The bar had an interesting concept. Curved and open air, so I got a little sweaty.
I was distracted by the pretty lights which changed colours every few seconds.
I was especially enthralled by the strands of fibre optics which looked like a glowing chiffon curtain.
There was an enclosed area within the bar which was off limits to normal guests like you and me. We went in anyway, who cares.
Better camera, better hair, better make-up, better lighting would make for a nicer photoshoot. Really love the setting of the place. It just oozes luxury.
As you can see, we had our own mini photoshoot.
Must give the photographer some camera time too.
A contemplating posh boy.
Cheers to us three duped fools.
But it’s fun to dress up, so we forgave that stupid guy anyway.
And yes, the drinks WERE free.
Posing with Chee Kiang’s wine which caused him RM40 for that one freaking glass. We were all living in denial and pretended that the RM40 was the total for all our drinks that night.
My favourite lashes.
Gaya was all up for dressing up and taking tons and tons of photos. All these pics went up on Facebook a long time ago.
Because owls are all the rage. Or were they?
We were too bored and we certainly couldn’t neglect our feet.
I love this sultry pic of Gaya.
Upon leaving the bar, there was another weird piece of furniture outside so we carried on.
Oops, the dirty soles make spoil only.
This dress was actually bought online and why this is a point that I feel the need to highlight is because I can ALMOST NEVER fit into the things sold by our local blogshops. Really happy with this dress!
This is Chee Kiang’s idea of a sexy photo.
The bag is also another great buy I found online. I love love love it!
Maybe I’m being perasan but I think my rebonded hair is still behaving very well since my last trip to A Cut Above Academy back in February 2008. It’s an awfully long life span for rebonded hair which only costs RM160! For that length too!
While Gaya was peeing..
.. I couldn’t resist the mirror. Never could.
