A purrrrfect weekend!

Alright. So much has been explained by the title itself. What made it a perfect weekend? Well, I insanely, insanely love cars. The faster the cars, the more enthusiastic I go. Don't believe me? Have me seated in your car and when a supercar passes by, you'll know how freakishly enthralled I get.

Ohgay, so! It was the 7th International Automotive Show, held in Putra World Trade Center, hence the short name PWTC. Oh just so you know, my awesome dad designed the kitchen for PWTC. That was what, a couple of years before I was born? Damn. Cool.

Moving on, the automotive show lured tens of thousands of horse enthusiasts! Horsepower nontheless. Car freaks, photographers, models and you name it! Everyone was there. It was verrrrry much overcrowded. Anyway, let the pictures do the talking aite?

That many people, all purchasing tickets or filling up lucky draw forms. It was around 3pm, Sunday the 7th.

See? That many people went! Imagine how much they could've earned just by selling tickets! It's Rm20 per head, just so you know.

Before entering PWTC. The Ferrari Club KL.
*Note the Ambulance? Yah. Someone might just faint seeing that many ferraris all lined up.*

Personally, this stood out amongst the Ferraris. Perhaps the colour played a role innit?

The rest of the Ferraris.

And more Ferraris. This one belongs to that kid. Yes, I'm not kidding.
Okay I was kidding. ;)

See how much attention the Ferraris got?

Chevrolet Cruze!

Perodua Infinite. Essentially a Myvi, so yeah. Wait for the New Myvi to come out though.

Bumblebee! Chevrolet Camaro! Sexaay!

Hot, hot ass! No, not the model. Just the car. No wait, I changed my mind. They're both hot. HAHA

3 Camaros! Niceee!

A 400k Car. You'd be better off getting the GTR-35. Sexy, nontheless.
Yeah, be amazed-not. Its a Proton. I can never understand why they showcased this car. It's called the Evolusi-G, whereby G stands for? Gullwing? No that's the door. Garbish! This is not worth displaying. Disappointing, Proton!
Ahhhh! Nissan GTR-35! GTR-35 baby!!

I really have no clue as to how Nissan can make a better car than this. How can it better this car?!
Behold the monstrous Nissan. I'll get one, I swear. Don't laugh, I'm serious.
Proton Jebat! Yes, Proton. Heavily modified Proton Inspira, or Mitsubishi Evo 10, so you say.
Side view of the Proton Jebat.
There were others though, Proton Tuah, Lekir, Lekiu and this, the Jebat. Jebat was the most beautiful anyway. 'nuff said.
Kia Optima, the 2004-05 batch. That was then, check the new one out.

*DRUMROLLS*

The all new Kia Optima. SEXY! Well done Kia! Great work by Peter Schreyer, once a designer for Audi.
Rear view of the Optima. Thinking of getting one? Yea. Get it. Hot car!
Another good product of Kia! The Kia Forte Koup! 2-Doored version of the Original Forte.

Maserati! *Speechless* Awesome? Very.

Oh that model? Pay Rm15 to take pictures with her! And all of Naza Italia's car. So worth it. The money goes to Charity though. :)
Ferrari 458 Italia. HOT!!!

Rolls Royce! My dad sat in it once. *Drools*

Aston Martin and Lamborghini! Who wouldn't want to drive one?!

The Toyota FT-HS. Said to be a replacement for Toyota Celica. Has 400bhp I heard? Cool.

Honda Civic! Yup, Civic. Europe model though, so don't be surprised. :)

Ahhh, I think I spent around 4 hours walking, no wait, squeezing through PWTC. It was very much enjoyable. I went with dad though. Just him and me. We had fun! I was drained though, so so exhausted. I slept after having lunch with dad at SS2, had yong tau foo. Heh, thanks dad! Love ya heaps!

So my awesome mom went to cooking class today, yes, cooking class. She's not a newbie, if that's what you're thinking. She does cook, but over the past years I've eaten the same dishes over and over, so I politely told mom that I got bored of home cooked food. But my mom took it well, she enjoyed cooking more than she ever did! Somehow I regret telling her to learn to cook - more dishes. You know, I became fat because my mom used to bake like hell, sometimes 2 cakes a week! Well that was 10 years back, so I don't blame her anyway. Heh. So here are a few pictures I took during our dinner.

Curry chicken.
*Scrumptious*

Curry Lamb. I've been eating Lamb since last Saturday! Oh help me! I need fat burning pills now. :(

Ooooooh pasta! With mushrooms, lil bit of chillies and what not.
Heavenly.

And last but not least, my dinner plate. HAHAH! I'm soooo not professional at this. I wouldn't want to be one too anyway. I'll stick to being a car enthusiast. :D

Well, that pretty much sums up my week. Awesome! I repeat, awesome! I remember how I used to annoy my mother using that word 'Awesome'. She thinks I watched too much tv. HAHA! Awesome mommy, awesome! Ohh, time to find my 'g-friend' now. Hee! Buhbye!

A lost bet

Alright, simple enough. I lost a bet with Eunice, in which I am required to blog about the most memorable moment we spent together.

Okay okay, save your enthusiasm. Go hype out somewhere else. Heeee.. Alright so here goes.

The most memorable moment I spent with Eunice was, well, it had to be the time when we sat down by the brown sandy beach in Pantai Cenang, Pulau Langkawi, just as it started to drizzle. I had no clue to why we actually spent time talking to each other under the rain, but heck, it was so, so, so romantic! Prior to that scene, we were having beach soccer! It was just the few of us playing anyway, until it started to drizzle. The rest of the guys did not want to get wet, so yah, they went into their chalets, played poker cards instead. I was about to do the same until Eunice said she wanted to play under the rain. I think I got 'dared' to do it though. Hehe! Sorry am being in denial. =P.

And so I did. I agreed to accompany her that one night, by the beach. It wasn't long though, how sad. We sat for a few minutes, played sands, had a handful of conversations, then the rain started to really pour. Screw you rain! So she had to go back in. And so I shouted *Oiii I love you!*, in my heart of course. Hahah just kidding!

I stayed there though. Not wanting to go back to my own chalet. And so I laid on my back by the beach as the currents gushed up towards my ARMPIT! Nahhhh, not that high up. Teehee! Moving on, yep, you must be wondering why on earth I decided to stay there, lying on my back. I was merely in deep thoughts. I kept convincing myself that I did feel something. Something new, something special, something extraordinary. I told myself to give this a chance, to give us a chance. It was all that seemed right at that very moment. She came in at precisely the very moment I needed to experience something new. So I spent a few more minutes just lying down by the beach, counting stars, singing songs, and thinking deep. It was a decision I never regretted!

It was a decision that led me, to you. <3

What made today, today

To be frank, I think I just spent 2 hours on a roller coaster ride, a ride of emotions.

It was actually very, very dreadful. It wasn't mind boggling, no. Nor was it an enjoyable thing to do. Yeah, you were brilliant. The way you blurted it all over your 'diary' actually made me 'time-travelled'. It was, that damn good. Heh.. Then again, today wouldn't sum up to the way it is had I stayed happy! It wasn't something I would regret, but nah, I'm glad it happened.

It was in May, wasn't it? When it seemed like the world just came crashing down on you, burying all the little fantasies that were going round and round in that head of yours. Uh huh, it did. Truthfully, I had no idea. There's a saying that 'Guys are more interested in the chase, rather than the catch'. True enough, I firmly believe there are many out there who live their lives based on that thesis. Heh, you have no idea how many though. Perhaps almost all.

Blah, I know it was too much for you to handle. I've seen it all, I've read it all, I've felt it all. Perhaps I've not seen things in your perspective, the way you see things as it is. I took many things for granted in which, in many cases will go unknown to me. But I'm thankful to know at least a few things that I may have overlooked. And for that I'm grateful. I saw how miserable your life was, all because of me. I saw how jubilant you were, because of me too. I somewhat feel like, being your chauffeur. Not just by the wheel, but I hope, I'll be your chauffeur in all ways possible in your life. I want to drive you crazy.

I never knew you could hang on to me for so long. I know that you've gone an extra mile just trying to obliterate my face off your brains. You never succeeded. Heh.. I admire your strength, your courage, and your perseverance. They say good things come in small packages, and you are the living proof of that saying! Whoever came up with that proverb should see you eh? Hee.. He'd be astonished, beyond a shadow of a doubt.

I still remember when I asked you for your blog url. You gave me manmandeng.blogspot.com. Seriously, 慢慢等?! I guess I wasn't paying much attention to it, so I just typed it in the address bar. Then only I realized it was a joke. Oh and to those who don't know what man man deng is, it means 'Slowly Wait'. Heh.. It's directly translated from mandarin, so yah, you all get it. Not to say that I'm in denial, but I think I was really busy doing something else, thus paying less attention to it. She still laughs at it whenever I bring that up though. Heh.. It was a hard punch to my face, really. I'm not easily fooled k =P. And she did a good job pulling it off, cause I was busy doing my own thing! Ish, she took advantage of it and really, it was embarrassing, very very embarrassing. Anyway good job hun, you tricked me!

Heh.. Hun, really, tell me. What on earth are you made of? I'd like to see someone of your calibre, someone, at least, half of who you are. Other than my mom that is, haha! You know, I wish I could take back whatever I threw at you over the years, since getting to know you. You are such a sponge! You absorb every darn thing! Nevertheless, I bet it was all worth it ei? Of all the big things that you have done for me, and yet the little things seem to matter more. I love you kay? ;)

I pursue all the good things life has to offer. I don't wait for it to come to me. It does apply to certain things in life, and I acknowledge it.

Throughout my 19 years of life, I've met people from all walks of life. And it is the people that I have met and mingled with that are responsible for shaping and moulding me, in which, has made me who I am today.

Two thousand ten was the year that opened me up to the many things I had not seen before me for the past, well, many years. I learnt to love and to be loved, to appreciate and to be appreciated, and to give and take. I took it all for granted – Money, attention, admiration, you name it. Everything was so easily available for me that I never thought of the blood, sweat and tears that were shed of all the materialism that was being given and exposed to me at such a young age. Then again, it was before, not now. I would like to take this opportunity to give thanks and to show my appreciation to a selected few who have changed the way I think, act and perceive.

Daddy

  • A man whose greatness as a father overwhelms his eldest son
  • A man who has done things that has touched people around him with little knowledge that he did
  • A man his eldest son looks up to, idolises, and is a role model to him
  • A man who goes the extra mile to ensure the safety and security of his family
  • A man who never, never fails to impress me

Despite his hectic schedules, work and the hours he spent working overseas, I never felt alone. Mom was always talking about him, telling us stories of what made mom so attached to him. All in all, dad showed me a lot of things.

I love you dad, if it was not for you and your principles, I wouldn't be what I am today. I remember mom telling me how you used to sing Everything I do I do it for you by Bryan Adams. I think of you every time I hear that song, and I mean every time, and without fail. You're the best dad in the world!

I dedicate the song back to you dad, Everything I do, I do it for you.


 

Mommy

  • A woman who has singlehandedly raised three boys
  • A woman whose dreams are big, broad and endless
  • A woman so fond of books that I think her brain expanded by 10%, hehe..

Mom has always been my pillar of support, ever since I was a kid. Mom showed no biasness when it comes to treating her children, and she treats her children fair and equal. She sent us to many classes in the past, just to make sure that our talents are being surfaced.

Mom, you've done so much for us. You've always been supportive and helpful. I enjoyed all the conversations we had in the Philippines. The trip was memorable, and please don't tease me with the fonz and what not lar.. Haha.. My mom's quite a naughty girl too!


 

Brothers

I've spent all my life growing up with 2 younger brothers. We start off by quarrelling while we were young, to punching and wrestling whilst approaching puberty, and what do we do now? We talk. We laugh and giggle at the things we do when we were young. Here's a list of the silly things we did in the past:

  1. We made the drain in front of our house an 'Aeroplane'
  2. Climbed trees and made it our 'Operating Base'
  3. Washed cars with dad which eventually turned into a shower – we were running around naked I think?
  4. Played with mom's lipstick [ Sam actually ate the lipstick? ] *Please LOL here*
  5. Dressed up a Winnie the Pooh Bear the size of a 4 year old kid with Mom's undergarments! Hahahahahahha!!!!
  6. Threw wet tissues to the ceiling of the toilets – it remained there for years
  7. Urinated on one of our old housemaid's bed – which we felt bad
  8. Burned small flowers thinking that it will pop like a firecracker *Ps, it was my neighbour's bright idea*
  9. Played table tennis on a piano chair
  10. Spent hours loitering in an abandoned lorry

Heheh, sweet memories. Though I rarely get home early enough to see my brothers, they will always be my brothers. We're growing up now. Maybe this less-seeing-one-another life prepares us for life in the future eh? In short, I love you my brothers!


 

Eunice

Mmm.. Life in 2010 couldn't get any better without you. It has been a rollercoaster ride, the kind that goes up and up, and up, without ever coming down!

Here's what I like about her. She's smart, very intellectual, hard working and respects her parents like no other. She's by a mile, the most matured person I have ever met of her age. She amazes me to an extent where I told myself 'Hey, I think she's more matured than I am!' Yeah, I really did. She may seem like a happy-go-lucky, cute, adorable young girl, but that's not what won me over. She gave me a better insight of what life has to offer, and has constantly been supportive of the decisions that I make.

Hun, I may have not seen the many bold characteristics that you possess in the past, but I believe what happened between us back then gave us this opportunity to make it up to one another. I never expected things to go this way.. Heh.. It took us both, and the people revolving around us by surprise!

Anyhow, 2010 has been a blast. And I look forward to what the future has in mind for us. Teehee! *Hugs!*

I dedicate these 2 songs to you, 你不知道的事 by 王力宏, and
How do I live by LeAnn Rimes. Love youuu!


 

Well, to everyone else not mentioned here, and to everyone that I have, I'd like to dedicate this song Couldn't Ask For More, by Edwin McCain, for each and every one of you had at least mould or chipped me.

True stories!

Well these stories aren't mine, I just picked a few good ones to share about. Heh.. You can actually go to www.love.givesmehope.com. Much more stories there! Heh..

#1

Two weeks ago, our drummer died.

I've loved him ever since we met, but I was afraid that would cause tension in our band.

On his deathbed, I joked, asking him what would happen when he met an angel.

He smiled and kissed me. "Well, I'd tell them all about you and make them jealous."

He died 2 hours later, with my hand in his. His LGMH

#2

15 years ago, two kids fell in love with each other.

The girl then had to move 1500 miles away, but the boy promised he would find her one day.

Last year, she was in the hospital. The doctor walked in and said, "I told you I would find you one day."

We are getting married in a month. LGMH

#3

I told my best friend that I felt so un-loved.

He hung up on me, and I burst into tears, thinking he didn't care about me.

30 minutes later, the doorbell rang. I opened the door to find him standing there, skateboard in hand.

He lives a city away. He pulled me into his arms, and told me he loved me.

#4

My boyfriend and I have been dating since the 7th grade. We are now 24, and married.

We first met in kindergarten when he threw a crayon at me.

Then in the 7th grade, he threw the same color crayon at me, with a homemade wrapper saying, "Will you be my girlfriend?"

The crayon was there at our wedding. His memory GMH.

#5

A girl met a boy when she was 15.

The girl got picked on a lot and one day, a group of boys decided to steal her clothes and put them through the tech room's shredder.

The boy sacrificed his dignity and gave the girl his pants and only wore boxers the rest of the day.

That was 8 years ago, and our wedding is tomorrow. I love you Sam. Your love GMH

#6

My best friend, whom I have always loved dearly, lives four hundred miles away.

While on the phone, he asks, "What would you do if I showed up at your house and told you I've always loved you with all my heart and soul?"

I replied, "I would be astonished."

I heard a knock on my door.

#7

One day, a 17 year old girl slipped into a coma.

A boy she always had a crush on, but thought he never knew she existed, visited her every day, telling her how much he loved her.

For a week he did this until she finally woke up, with the words "I love you" ringing in her ears.

We have been married now for 5 years. Jason your LGMH.

#8

Last night for homework, our class was assigned to write a report on our "dream person."

Today in class we were peer editing each other's papers. My crush and I always partner up, and so we peer edited each other's.

When I looked at his paper, it only had a single word on it:

"You."


Hahaha.. Bottom line is, they really do make you go 'Awwww'. Check it out! =)

My life! Would suck! Without youuu!

Ahhh, Glee's version is not too bad either.. Hmm, never thought that song would inspire me now. Heh.. Odd..

Well, awh, she left, for Australia! Will be coming back on the 14th.. Now tell me, is that long? Ugh, cause, its June already. Then again, argh, college! I've an assignment due this Friday.. Cekap la, haven't even started. Hah!
