I'm usually very focused (some say anal-retentive) in my blogging in the sense that I usually stick to one topic. But right now there are a whole bunch of things that are bursting to come out of my brains.
THE FATHERS' DAY THAT WAS
Mae and Jesse got me a nice Braun Buffel wallet. This is the beauty of having small children - you can take their money and buy stuff for yourself on your birthday, fathers' day, anniversary, etc. and they can do a damn thing about it. Wahahah! We didn't really celebrate but we did buy Mae's dad a nice dinner. As for me, I somehow feel that I haven't earned the right to have someone throw me a Fathers' Day bash just yet. So far, all I've done is put my... erm... genetic material into Mae and voila, all of a sudden I'm a father. Maybe by next year I'd be more deserving. Heh!
Yesterday I flipped open the Star and oh, the horror! Hehehhh! Congratulations to Suanie, Minishorts, Kenny Sia, Peter and Aizuddin, and thanks for putting blogs in the minds of Malaysians. Congrats also to Jeff Ooi for the recent win. I'm sure it was my vote that made the difference. Hehhehh! It is my honour to share my ping on the same page on PPS as you fellas.
PPS 2nd ANNIVERSARY BASH
I'm really dying to go. Maybe Mae and I will pop by for a drink or two. If we do go, it'll be a short one. :)
THE BOY SAYS APPLE
Mae called me a short while ago. "Jesse said 'Apple'," she screamed over the phone. "He grabbed the tomato flashcard and said 'Apple'." I guess the boy's not too bright. But then again, the tomato in our Fruits & Vegetables Flashcards does kinda look like an apple. Close enough, I guess. Also, I'm glad Jesse enjoys the flashcards we got for him. To him it's all a game, so he's having fun and learning stuff at the same time. If only all education was like that.
Jesse is at the stage where he leaves a trail of destruction everywhere he goes. He'd been biting my mobile phone, slathering his drool all over it. As a result, my Nokia isn't working so great these days. He also screwed up the CD tray of our stereo. Mae thinks it's great that I don't take it too badly that our son is destroying our stuff. Little does she know I'm actually plotting my revenge. When the boy gets his first car, he'll know what destruction is. Hehehh!
GYM & LOSING WEIGHT
In my first month at the gym, I lost 5kgs. Now, two months later, I've only lost another 1kg. *sigh* Truth is, I've been slacking. I was working out daily. These days, I'll be happy if I can squeeze in 3 days in a week. Also, I'm eating like a pig once again. I'm now at 80kgs. I prefer to be 72kgs. This is an uphill task for a glutton such as I. God give me strength.
INITIAL-D THE MOVIE
Mae and I will be watching this at a client's special preview screening. I'm not a big fan of Chinese movies but this one is directed by Andrew Lau and Alan Mak, the guys who brought us Infernal Affairs. So I fully expect this to rock. And if it doesn't I'll throw popcorn at the screen. :)
HALOSCAN, WE HAVE A PROBLEM
Is there a problem with Haloscan or it is just me? On several occassions I replied to the comments, submitted my comments only to find that it has mysteriously disappeared. This sucks. And not in a good way too.
Ugh! There's the rojak post. Not the most elegant piece I've ever written, but then again, when have I ever written anything remotely elegant? Still, it was therapeutic for me. Oh yah, I did intend to put in some links but I got lazy. Sue me.
