i'm going up to kl at the end of this month for a friend's wedding...we've been planning for quite some time already, but i think i just need some opinions on how we should go up, and also on where we should stay...
so far, the plan is to drive up in my friend's car (singapore plate), and stay in this place called the prince hotel...apparently the place is quite posh...around rm700+ per night...for the 6 of us...over 2 nights...
ideally, we'd obviously love to save on travel and accommodation lah...but the thing is, we've all got yet another wedding to go to on the very next day after the kl wedding...back in singapore...which means that we have to get back to singapore the next morning...making timing all the more important...tips? lobangs? pilots-off-duty-with-small-airplanes-willing-to-do-charity-work? please feel free to communicate with me.
time waits for no man...sigh.

i'm bloated. i'm stuffed. i feel like a turkey. i think i know how the hindenburg zeppelin felt before it's fateful explosion.
i just finished eating at the joo chiat crab place with blinkymummy and her boyboy...and now, i simply can't move.
*UPDATE: if you wanna see blinkymummy's video of our dinner, feel free to check it here.*
4 whole crabs for the 3 of us...and let's not even mention the sambal kang kong and fried sotong you tiao side dishes (damn, even the hair on my belly button stood up while i typed that)...i think we could have fed about 3.65 paula abduls plus 4.35 victoria beckhams. oh, and while we're on the subject of anorexic people, i just wanna state that i feel like puking now too...and no, i'm not advocating eating disorders for all you young readers out there...i just need all that crab to come out from at least one end. btw, how's that chocolate brownie you're eating? tasty i bet. haha. >=)
i'm going on a liquid diet tomorrow. vegetables, fruits and juice only. i hope i won't faint or anything, cuz i'm normally a carnivorous t-rex at the meal table...but i really need to detoxinate, detoxify and detoxerminate everything that i just ingested.
actually, i'm just praying that i don't get chased by crab claws and black peppers in slumberland tonight...hehe.
cheers. *burp* =)

i took a cab to my destination today.
moby: to the bat cave, driver...
crazy cabbie (ccb): ok...
*5 minutes into the ride*
ccb: so which way do you wanna go ah?
moby: err...the fastest way lah...i'm kinda in a rush...
ccb: oh ok...so which way you wanna go ah?
moby: *sighs* ok...you take a left here, and another right there, and then you do a u-turn after the traffic light.
ccb: HAR??? why you wanna go that way?
moby: then how would you prefer to go? pray tell...
ccb: aiyah, i take a right here, and then another right in front, and then you go straight down that ever-winding road, and then cross the busy junction with the maniac drivers, and then i'll try to avoid all the stationary cars along the road with the speed bumps loh! like that don't need to u-turn what.
moby: err...i think my way is easier leh.
ccb: NO LAH! siao ah you! *glares behind at moby*
moby: ok ok...have it your way...you're the driver. *moby puts on seat belt with much speed and urgency*
ccb: heh heh...ok...
*moby arrives at bat cave and ends up paying $2.70 more than usual*
lesson learned: don't fuck with the person driving you home. just put on your seat belt and shut the hell up. ALL taxi drivers know what they're talking about. serious. ccb...
either that or you should buy your own batmobile. haha. cheers. =)

i dreamt that someone dear was leaving for a faraway place and wouldn't be back till forever...and it was a painful farewell. she said that she would call, though i knew it wouldn't happen...but thankfully, it was all a dream.
but i think i know why i had that dream...it kinda reminded me of something that happened about 2 years ago...
bestfrentugk called me during one of my lunch breaks...
1230hrs: coffee shop in the east
bestfrentugk: eh, i think you have to take leave today...
moby: why? crazy...i have an appointment later in the afternoon.
bestfrentugk: mike's leaving today...
moby: err...where's he going? jb? timbuktu?
bestfrentugk: he just called me. he's going back to indon for a while, and then on to holland after that.
bestfrentugk: yeah...he just bought his plane ticket at golden mile...he's leaving at 5.30pm today.
bestfrentugk: please take leave or something.
moby: why's he leaving???
bestfrentugk: i really don't know. i'll see you in bugis at 3pm. mike is meeting us there.
1500hrs: bugis macdonald's
moby: why are you going back to indon??? and what's with holland???
bestfrenmike: cuz i have to...
bestfrenmike: i can't help it...my parents want me back in indon, and i wannna start a new life...holland is a nice place what...
moby: i hate you!!! *punches bestfrenmike on the arm really hard...wet substance from moby's eyes fall into his coffee*
bestfrenmike: ouch? ...
1700hrs: changi airport
moby: ok then...take care mike...
bestfrentugk: yeah...take care mike...
bestfrenmike: wish me luck guys...
moby: ok...good luck mike. *wet substance appears again*
bestfrentugk: good luck mike.
bestfrenmike: don't worry, i'll be home soon.
i didn't recover for a few months. i miss the times when bestfrenmike and i would sing "no woman, no cry" while he strummed the guitar that we bought for him on his birthday a few years back...
speaking of which, happy birthday bestfrenmike.
i'm still waiting for our paths to cross again. cheers. =)

i was chatting with my sister on msn just now...apparently her boyfriend of 3 months and her were having some kinda disagreement.
moby: what happened?
moby's sister (ms): he kinda embarrassed me in front of all these people...blah blah blah. *continues to complain for 20 minutes*
moby: oh ok...i think you have to talk it through with him...communication is always vital in a relationship.
ms: yeah, but blah blah blah *continues to complain about boyfriend's lack of this and that*
moby: oh ok.
ms: i'm kinda disappointed in him and a bit hurt too...
moby: so have you told him all this yet?
ms: err..kinda...we're talking now.
moby: oh ok...on the phone huh? actually talking in person would be better lah...is it like snowing outside or something?
ms: err...it's spring in michigan already lah. i'm chatting with him online about it.
moby: what??? why online?
ms: yeah, i'm scared that i'll get emotional if i talk to him...don't even mention face to face.
moby: what??? you're not serious. that's what relationships are about what! like that you might as well be dating a machine!
ms: yeah...i know...but... =(
moby: i don't like to see you like this...
ms: it's ok...
moby: if he breaks your heart, i'm fucking going to fly there and kill him.
ms: don't need lah...haha.
watch out stephen. one wrong move and you could find your asshole bigger than brokeback jack's. i is watching you. *two fingers to eyes*
p.s. - sis (if you ever read this)...some advice from a not-very-qualified-relationship-guru...never dump a guy using electronic devices (email, sms, msn)...give him, or at least your relationship, some respect...unless of course he breaks your heart...i'll take care of him if it ever comes down to that. love ya. cheers. =)

trust me, the grass is always greener on the other side...and shit happens...so wipe your ass, flush out the nonsense, and get on with life. you're young, reasonably rich, handsome...the world is at your feet...
you know that you can give me a call anytime if you wanna talk...just like the good old days...except now instead of catching crickets and grasshoppers, we'll be catching our dreams and aspirations.
see you soon bro. take care. cheers. =)
