Despite telling Tim that I wouldn’t be able to make it back for the Nuffnang’s Pirate Of The Caribbean’s screening, I decided to come home a little earlier since I was coming back on Thursday after all!
Reasons I’m home this weekend:
1) Nuffnang Pirates screening
2) BROADWAY PARODIES LAH!(see you there tonight… in like 4 hours. bwahaha)
3) To visit my new nephew Ethan! (photos later)
4) My Aunty and Uncle are back from UK.
I followed Yee Hou’s car from behind after his class ended at six. 🙁 I caused an embarrassing congestion outside faggers’ gate while trying to locate him.
After leaving his place, he hopped into the driver’s seat of my Kia Carens for this.
Apparently I was tionging him all the way from Sunway back to Kelana Jaya. Woot. I’m no longer a slow driver.
Here we are grabbing a quick dinner before going in for the movie. Thanks for dinner, Yee Hou. I lost the very chinese battle of paying for the bill. ;(
I love spring onions! Especially when I have lots of it in my soupy noodles!
Siu Long Pau! Didn’t know they served it here at The Curve! This was at a restaurant called Dragon-I.
And our sad attempt at trying to make a bikini babe. Well, a naked babe actually. Supposed to pubic hair down south… she could’ve been blonde though.
After dinner, we went up to Cineleisure and Tim was there with the rest of his team already. There were a few people hanging around and when I spot my first familiar face..I was damn happy! Penny and I exchanged the obligatory, “OhMIGOD I Didn’T knOW You WeRe ComiNG!! Ah!! HellOOo!!”*hug**hug*… while we were chatting animatedly, Yee Hou wondered off to take some photos to cover the event for his r.age article.
Suddenly, we heard two loud voices screeching, “WHAT THE FUCK?!! WHAT THE FUCK?!! WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE?!!?!! You CALL YOURSELF BLOGGERS???!!?!?!?!”
BWAHAHHAHA. I turned around and saw Suanie and Fireangel all decked out in full Pirates gear surveying the crowd of bloggers gathered outside the cinema – all in normal clothing. They had the most incredulous look on their faces. I couldn’t stop laughing when I saw them. Actually, I’m still laughing whenever I replay the whole scene of them climbing up the steps and looking gobsmacked. HAHAHA. Damn funny.
Here’s a picture of myself with the pretty pirates.
l-r: Suanie, Myself and Fireangel
Penny going all sweat on them.
After that, I followed Penny down to Friday’s were Wingz and the rest of their friends were hanging. It was mostly the bunch of people who made the Together-Gather gathering.
I got acquainted with Lisan last night. It’s hard to believe that this pretty girl is only my brother’s age!
And the crowd grew! I didn’t really go up to total strangers to strike up conversations as I would’ve in previous blog gatherings. Maybe because I’m not used to having a blog gathering at a cinema. And what if someone who was just standing there was not a blogger? So I played safe and just smiled and chatted up the familiar faces that I’ve seen times and times before.
Here’s one of me and Jason kor! All the way from Malacca, just like every other time.
Look at that face man.. oh KY came as a pirate too. I’ve never met him before but I exchanged a smile shy and a slight wave of the hand with him. Should have gone up to him and talked as well.
Another shy moment was when I saw Jeff Ooi and his family dining at one of the restaurants down stairs. I waved at him and said I’ll see him later and he smiled back with a wave. Also quite shy to approach him. WHY AM I SO SHY HOR! (I’m shy.. Omg. I am!) I was telling Yee Hou about this embarrassing thing that I did to Jeff Ooi when I last saw him at the Petaling Street 2nd Bash back in June 2005.
At that time I had another mass-linking-to-me thing going on because my father didn’t allow me to go for anymore blog gatherings(hohohoho.. and then I’ve attended six so far, and three of which I’ve co-organised) and was especially worried about bloggers making exhibitionists out of themselves. It was when SPG posed naked on her blog and he was worried that I’d become like her. ……………..thank goodness I’m still too out of shape to take on such hobbies after four years of blogging.
Anyway, so I was that poor little girl who kena-ed from her Dad for blogging so much(without holding alot back. This was then.) and meeting up with bloggers(ie. people from the internet) and I had to pull out of the PPS bash guest list. But I managed to convince my dad at the very last minute and he allowed me to go! I went to the party and quite a number of people were surprised that i managed to come. So, I was too up in my head already smiling at people who smiled at me, and answering their surprised questions about my attendance. When Jeff Ooi smiled at me(because he recognized me from Peter Tan’s gathering), I smiled and said, “heh, yes, my dad let me come after all.”
He looked startled and said, “Eh? What has your dad letting you to come got to do with anything?”
…it was then that I felt so flushed with embarrassment. Of course you silly girl. Jeff doesn’t read every single thing in the blogosphere. Bwahhaha. I remember telling this story to Joshua and he was like, “OMG JOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO……MALU WEIIIII”. Ya I know. Malu.
The best part of the night was probably this:-
I saw these two buggers.
I was walking in and then I heard Suet Li saying hello to someone. Then I saw Barry on my left and I leaned on him(he didn’t know who was leaning on him) and we hugged and screamed(this was Suet Li and Me). Hahaha. My bestest guy friend and his missus(perhaps the only other half of my close friends that I’m closest to. Can understand ar?) were there toooooo. Besides Yee Hou(we’ve successfully broken down the Jolene Polite Barrier eons ago), I hardly have any close friends at the screening that I’d like to sit beside. And bumping into damn kau close friends at a movie screening with free seating?? AWESOME!! (shit, where did I learn that word)
I remember being damn happy that I spotted Barry and Suet that I was like saying, “Ok!! I don’t want to sit VIP di! I sit with you all!!! YAY!” and someone said, “Why you don’t want?!! why you don’t want to sit??!?” I turned around, it was Wingz as he entered the VIP row. Bwahaha. Cute fella.
Here’s one of Su Ann and me.
Boss Stewie/Tim saying a little something before the show.
Ah, Simon and his lovely wife. hehe. See, you’re the only one I give my mosaic treatment to!
Albert and his toy.
The movie never really made any sense to me but I love looking at the props and the setting. And of course, Captain Jack Sparrow is damn funny. I think he could be suffering from a multiple personalities disorder. And hallucinations too.
My favourite characters from the movie would be Jack Sparrow, that calypso goddess(there’s something about her.. the dots, ugly teeth, black slimy lips) and Davy Jones!!
Half way through the movie, I actually got hungry while looking at Davy Jones. I wanted to eat him. I wanted to cook him steamboat style and chew on his yummy tentacles. especially that bloaty thing at the back of his head that inflates and deflates as he breathes. Yum! I can just burst it with my teeth and maybe some salty juice will come out. Oh ..yum! I’m serious. He looks delicious.
I’m the chinese of the underwater world. I eat any underwater creatures. Really! I love seafood.
There’s a very easily tickled blogger among us last night. The only dude who laughed so hard at every single thing on the screen. It’s nice to be appreciative I suppose. 🙂 The few of us had no idea who was laughing so hard, but since this was a movie screening among people who are supposed to be in a community together, we laughed along. But the dude even found the digi yellowman funny!! Hahaha.
After the movie, I spotted Earl Ku of Kukujiao.com and called out, “Earl-ku!” but he didn’t turn around. Nevermind, it’s okay, maybe he’s not quite used to his online nickname. I couldn’t for the life of me remember his real name. I remember seeing it somewhere before.
So I called out again, this time he was further away. Exasperated, I shouted, “KUKUJIAO!!!!” and Penny was like, “Wei! Don’t say Kukujiao so loud la!!”
But I managed to get a photo with him! Hehe.
And these two! I’ve not seen them in two years.. and even then we didn’t get to talk much.
L-r: Shaolintiger, Kimcun and myself.
ST sounds damn Malaysian. You would’ve thought a Malaysian was talking if you didn’t know any better!
L-r: Penny, Me, Suet, Albert, Wenqi, Su Ann/Pinkpau, Tim, Shaolintiger, Kimcun
My darling Penny! One of the few bloggers friends of mine whom I can give the Real Life Jolene treatment to. (Package includes: Boob Five, Boob Grope, Bum Pinch, Breast Poke etc.)
My face was like that because he stepped on my toe. I was still in pain okay when I took this photo.
Yeah, spank her ass Dr. Tan. Spank Pennypupz’s naughty bum. Uhhhh.
And Mikel was there tooo…shit I forgot to take a photo with you I just realised!
And of course, a big thank you to Tim and the rest at Nuffnang for organising this fun event. More more more! Maybe next time can do a Harry Potter one and I will try my best to dress up as a Witch. Yay! Easier than pirates.
