I thought the remix version of Zahid’s Wo!!!, aptly titled Wo… Lagi??!!!, was better than the original mix. So I took that remix and made another mix out of it (remix of a remix, ha!) and call it (hold your breath) Wo! Remix Lagi.
Not as naughty as Smack My Parap-Parap. It’s been a slow Sunday as you can imagine. That human beatbox is all me, by the way. If you ever want my DNA, you can look for it on my mic.
Our neighbor and Mama's good friend Auntie Salimah got herself another son-in-law and her family extended manifold in one go when her celebrity daughter (no points for guessing who she is) got hitched this morning in a brief engagement followed by a wedding ceremony attended by close relatives and friends of both families as well as the hoard of people from the media. So congratulations are in order to the newlyweds, Nora and Rizal (now Toh Puan and Toh Muda respectively). I'm sure news of their taking themselves out of the singles market will be splashed all over the media tomorrow, this weekend and next month's issue of URTV, Hai!, Media Hiburan, etc. etc. (bar Siti Nurhaliza does some upstaging of sorts if she decides to do the same this week). Anyhow, I'm happy for the couple and I sure am also glad that nobody threw me out for being the odd one going around taking pictures using a camera phone during the event.
I take pride in managing to survive driving for 14 years without
being involved in any accidents. Today that streak ended and it
had to happen to my 6 month old car that has yet to reach its
10K mileage. A van carrying factory workers driven by an
Indonesian (great, now they’re a menace on our roads also)
wham-bam-slammed into the rear end of my car as I was driving to
work this morning. No injuries but funnily enough, my car was
the only vehicle that got damaged. I did spot one or two drivers
passing by taking pictures of the accident.
If it doesn’t make it into the reader submitted picture of the
day in the local dailies, I hope that person wins big in the
“empat nombor ekor” so that I can stake a claim to the money
and use it to do the repairs.
But as much as I was annoyed with the driver of the van that
rear-ended my car, I was even more pissed off at the police
officers who handled my report. Despite the hardship I was
already in, they still have the cheek to make some snide
remarks about my predicament. Victims will continue being
victims in this country it seems. I did contemplate a comeback
about them being confined to doing deskjobs at the traffic
division in the police force and not know that the word “rear”
means “back” or “behind” (such is the mastery of English in our
police force) but I figured if I do so, I might end up in the
lock-up doing naked earsquats whilst picking up bars of soap.
Let’s not have anything else other than the rear of my car
rear-ended for today, shall we?
I capped my week long birthday party
break by treating myself to another showing of Actorlympics
tonight after watching it on opening night last Wednesday (doesn’t
take much to humor me, does it?). I did not get pulled on stage
nor did I volunteer myself this time around, although the thought
did cross my mind when Stephanie Chai
and Balqis volunteered themselves for the karaoke music video
game. Could’ve made for an awesome threesome thingy with Douglas’
warped directing that was going on. What more with my parents in
the audience watching. Ida Nerina, who ruved me wrong time
last time, is off limits already as she just tied the knot
apparently. So that’s another one swiped, snatched and swept away.
Moral of the story for me: Ruv more people wrong time before they
become other peoples’ wives.
I found me a new pet peeve. What’s worse than a typical Malaysian
slowing down or stopping to look at an accident on the road? A
Malaysian armed with a camera phone slowing down or stopping to
snap pictures of the accident and then blog about it. If there
are no accidents, the next best thing would be to capture other
motorists’ antics on the road. What makes me antsy is that they
take those pictures while they’re driving. I suppose winning that
RM50 offered by some local newspapers when that picture qualifies
as picture of the day is worth risking the neck for, maybe even
cover the mechanic’s fee if a fender bender ensues. The whole
thing is a road wreck waiting to happen, I tell you. Maybe then I
should take pictures of them in an accident whilst trying to
take a picture of another accident. I could use an extra RM50
Male carbon based bipedal life form capable of operating machines that can perform billions of operations per second without bloodshed. Also capable of producing millions of male reproductive cells on a daily basis without even trying.
