4 + 1 =subrant

Nothing drains me more than having to wait for others to finish off work before i can mosey on home. 4 hours can be such a long time.

FOUR valuable hours of knowing you can polish off more of your own work at home can be an absolute torture.

UGH. its a wonder I did not go running around the office in a tizzy screaming bloody murder. The closest I got to that, was pace madly from the toilet to the stuffy little room with the only windows in the whole office, on the other end.


Tick tock tick tock tick tock went the clock till the work got completed. BEST THING that happened all night! (For a moment there, I'd thought it was going to be another all-nighter...) !@#$@#$ SPRINT! I'm out the door!!!!! woooooott!!111!!!

grin* My legs can't seem to take me to where my car is parked fast enough, so I half skip all the way till I look up & discover the carpark building pitch black. Its a building which houses 8-10 floors for parking vehicles and all the #@$@#$# 8-10 storeys of floors were just as black as tar, not a single light in sight! & my car's parked right on the 4th floor.

Oh, I failed to mention earlier that my office area can become quite dodgy at night. Let's see, we have fly-by-night night club patrons patronising the fly-by-night night club, temporary construction workers plus leery guards pa(s)trolling around at the stroke of 10pm.

RAAAHHHHHH..... How much more 5H1T can land in my lap?

I make a straight beeline to the carpark stairwell & proceed cautiously up the first half flight. Its as good as wandering around a cave with glow worms for a light source. (The glow worm reference was for the ever-dimming useless exit lights, strung someth whereth.)

Second half flight had me whipping out my pepper spray & doing some over stretched big walk thing up the stair. Its getting darker. I am so getting paranoid. So many landings & nooks for crooks to wait & pounce on. I RUN!

You would have to be in some insane frenzy to have scrambled up the 8 black flights-o-stairs as fast as I did! I not only leapt into the car, I positively flew into it! Adrenaline pumping, heart thumping like it was ready to run on home without me, I drove like a crazy person all the way down.

Now, I know what it feels like being in a horrible B-grade horror movie: dark carpark building possibly filled with either a) hungry monster beings waiting to nom nom nom you or b) hungry perps waiting to nom nom nom you.

Oh wells. I'm home. Sub-rant over. Going to sleep off the rest of my stair-well fatigue. See what happens when you spend your entire life infront of computers. I am very much unfit. Maybe I'll need to start doing something about it. But that's for another time. Ta!
These had me tickled, chuckling & rolling all over, laughing my head off!

1. Meet Einstein!
An African gray with loads of tricks up her wing :D

Sitting here for many, many minutes, thinking of how to start this post makes me want to just go pluck coconuts from the imaginary swaying trees outside.

There are heaps of things I could say about Malacca (Malaysia's most historical state) (steeped in culture, tradition......) (tourist traps :P well, most of the shops set up there, are.) but I'll leave it to the other 4,260,000 websites to lay on its colorful history. (Googling up Malacca gets you 4,260,000 hits!)

We set off for Malacca to visit a couple of my fave aunts last week.
Here are a few piccies I took along the way.

This is the fountain courtyard of Cheng Hoon Teng Temple. (Malaysia's oldest Traditional Chinese Temple) My grandma used to play here when she was very young, little girl young :D

Apart from housing amazingly intricate details & figurines. (portraying traditional Chinese characters), the fountain-water feature had some wee cute tortoises living in its cooling interior (when it was still working of course!) I hope the temple authorities restore this part of the temple as well!
(Cheng Hoon Teng Temple has its own site too)

The exterior of Hang Li Po's well has some very cute walls.

A food or rather delicacy Malacca is famous for is its baked pineapple tarts.

This shop along Jonker's Walk, named Lwee had a huge one weighing 21kg, 32 inches in diameter. =-------=" Its been on display since May 2008.

The un-sleeping cat.
Caught snoozing amongst newspapers at my aunts' place.

Old Red doors & a lazy Monday.

I'm back!!! :D

It's been a long time coming! But I'm back!

I've managed to meet wipe my slate clean off a couple of projects!
Finally got them out & on their way.
Thus, I've come home to the blogosphere.
I would love to share what I've been busying myself with this past month but alas, that'll have to wait a bit till the collaborative projects have been launched by their respective people in charge!
Hopefully, they'll all be revealed in good time!

I am working on some new stuff for Jinjerup so definitely stay tuned for the new collection! :D
In the mean time, i have rounded up a couple of interesting/amusing links:

1. Some Post Olympic-Michale Phelps fervour

A funny video of the Chinese public thinking a British ex-Olympian is
actually Michael Phelps.

2. Rejection is never easy

This is absolutely so cute.

3. Gnome-be-Gone!

I like their sense of humour!

Here's an excerpt of this delightful garden ornament's review:
Finally rid your garden of those pesky ceramic garden gnomes with our Mini GnomeBearers! That's right, now your garden can be free of those kitsch little Euro garden invaders. Who do they think they are, wearing tiny red dunce caps and pushing inefficient wooden wheelbarrows?

Check out more products from them!
plus the Mooning Gnome is a definite scream!

4. Nine salts that will spice up your life!

Fascinating article on salts. There is more than meets the (taste)buds!
The Hawaiian Sea Salt (Alaea) (its the one pictured on the far right of the piccy above, the red salt!) & Smoked Salt seem to be calling me. If only I could my hands on some.

(Grr...I can't even find a SINGLE pack of orzo here in Malaysia, I very much doubt I can try any new salts anytime soon...) Sighs...anyone up for sending me some aforementioned salts or orzo?

5. Skittles: No handful is ever the same!

To top it all off, here's an offbeat Skittles ad from Toronto!
