Tueday was great! Surprising, isn’t it, it being a weekday and all. But hell, it was smashing! Met Jason in town to shop at Emporio Armani (what else right?) as the new Fall/Winter Collection 09 is in. And O-M-G, the designs and variety are to DIE FOR. In our opinion, I think this is the biggest variety in a collection by far, which of course, translated into – so much apparels to get, so little money. *sigh* Well, of course if I were to splurge on everything I wanted there and then, I would have easily spent, what, 1500, at one go? *pulls collar for more air* But….. ye shall not be deterred! A collection usually lasts 4 to 5 months, and well, by then I can slowly get all that I want… Bit by bit.

Anyhoo, I bought 2 T-shirts (for now, will collect more… grrr) and an underwear. Pictures below:

Tada! The 3 items = one euphoric gay man. And then comes collateral damage – $420. *gulps* But I paid $300 nett as I had the $120 voucher from my pseudo birthday! Oh well, as Jimmy James once said in his track, Fashionista

“Beauty has a price!”

Soon after, we slacked a bit for coffee at Forum’s Coffee Bean till about 7. He handed me something that I was so looking forward to have!

That’s riiiiiight! Mylene Farmer’s latest album!!! Point de Suture! For those who need to be filled, she is the equivalent of the French Madonna. Big on the pop scene, huge gay icon, great music, gread dancing. An idol. Full stop. Music in the current album is a tad on the emotional side, and of course judging by the album cover, is also rather dark. morbid and sattirical. Album cover is an inspiration from Al Pacino’s sentence in the 1993 film Carlito’s Way, “All the stitches of the world cannot sew us again”. Deep.

Then we headed to Forbidden City (Indochine) at Clarke Quay. Apparently, the whole venue was booked to host the result show of Asia’s first Online Reality Show – The MBA Challenge. It’s a competition where 16 contestants battle their wits and intellect and pit strategic ideals and solutions to emerge as the top champion gaining the ultimate prize – a $25 000 MBA Scholarship by Kaplan University. And…. I am proud to announce that the winner is one of besties! Congratulations Maize! Am extremely proud of you. Now we can gladly welcome you to the life of students. And well, with that comes tons of free food (think crab claws, stuffed drumlets, duck skin spring rolls, golden wontons, shrimp pastries) and free drinks! Well, being avid patrons of Backstage and Tantric, which incidentally serves house pours by the double shot for the price of a single shot – $10, every other housepour that every other bar/club serves would, by definition, be C.R.A.P.P.Y. Solution – had red wine instead. And, mind you, by the bottle load. I lost count how bottles we had. Honestly. We drank from about 8:00pm till 01:00am. Nope, you didn’t misread. Was great, nothing but red wine, cigarettes and your 2 besties as company! Then we headed to good ol’ MacDonalds to stuff our faces yet again with Big Macs, before going BACK AGAIN to drink more red wine till 3:00am. Yes, people, we are decadent. On a Tuesday night! Tsk tsk. We were sloshed, but surprisingly, none of us had any hangovers the next day!

Hail protector of all drunk decadent young, pretty Asian men!

P.S. – Oh, by the way, Maize, Jason and I received this cute bear from Kaplan.

P.P.S. – how’s that for a post?!

A Dollar For Mayo

Wish I had something more substantial to blog about. But unfortunately, I don”t. What a bummer. Sigh.

Just really, a quick update : went out with Jason and Amanda on Saturday for dinner at Yotei and then as per customary processes, drinks at Backstage and Tantric. Crowd was good, drinks, aweseome, didn’t flirt at all. Ever since 15th June (per agreement), Jason and I are really on our best behaviour. Someone should give us a medal.

Really.

Like, now.

Oh, the only thing that I can really harp on is that, when we went to our usual supper hang out, we ordered lemon chicken rice. And so, we asked for mayonnaise to go with our fries, and guess what? We were charged with A DOLLAR! Since time immemorial (OK, I exaggerate, since 5 years), we have NEVER paid for our sauces and all of a sudden, UNNECESSARY COST incurred.

I know it might sound petty since it’s only a buck, but hey, we’re regulars! And we’ve never been charged so unjustiedly! Boycot will be in session soon. Even a normal cup of tea with milk in a regular Kopitiam costs less! The unfairness of it all!!!! *shakes fists in disbelief to higer being in the sky*

I shall bring my own bottle of Kraft Mayonnaise next time around. Just you wait!

HMPF.

MERCHANT, n. One engaged in a commercial pursuit. A commercial pursuit is one in which the thing pursued is a dollar.

Scorpio Characteristics and Profile

The Scorpion is one intense little creature, with enough poison in its own tail to disable or kill a much larger opponent. But the problem with this kind of built-in biological weaponry is that it must be mastered in order to be used most effectively. You Scorpios can use your “stinger” for self-defense, using your powerful emotional awareness to render your opponent harmless. But there is a sexual component of poisonous tail also, and until Scorpio learns to control those strong urges, Scorpio may find yourself in uncomfortable situations.

Element: Water

The water of Scorpio is fixed and frozen, but it is a mistake to think that ice doesn´t flow. It does flow — and with great power. Think of a glacier, moving so very slowly, yet with enough power to flatten a forest or even a mountain.

Eighth House: Transformation

This can include sexual issues, for they usually involve another person.

Key Planet: Pluto

As the key planet for Scorpio, Pluto is intense and powerful, representing those things that we don´t or can´t understand. And it is from these hidden Plutonic spaces that magical transformations arise.

Scorpio Greatest Strength: Your passion about your feelings

Scorpio Possible Weakness: Need for secrecy can be isolating

Anybody willing to vouch for me? Do I sound like the above description? I think I do. *ponders deep in thought*

Already Gone

Posted in Uncategorized on July 29, 2009 by accidentalpresidency

Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories, they’re haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye
Even without fists held high, yeah
Never would have worked out right, yeah
We were never meant for do or die

I didn’t want us to burn out
I didn’t come here to hurt you now
I can’t stop

I want you to know
That it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road
Someone’s gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I’m already gone

Looking at you makes it harder
But I know that you’ll find another
That doesn’t always make you wanna cry
Started with a perfect kiss
Then we could feel the poison set in
Perfect couldn’t keep this love alive

You know that I love you so
I love you enough to let you go

I want you to know
That it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road
Someone’s gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I’m already gone

I’m already gone
I’m already gone
You can’t make it feel right
When you know that it’s wrong
I’m already gone
Already gone
There’s no moving on
So I’m already gone

Already gone
Already gone
Already gone, Oooo, oh
Already gone
Already gone
Already gone, yeah

Remember all the things we wanted
Now all our memories, they’re haunted
We were always meant to say goodbye

I want you to know
That it doesn’t matter
Where we take this road
Someone’s gotta go
And I want you to know
You couldn’t have loved me better
But I want you to move on
So I’m already gone

I’m already gone
I’m already gone
You can’t make it feel right
When you know that it’s wrong
I’m already gone
Already gone
There’s no moving on
So I’m already gone…


For those who share my sentiments. It’s worth your tears.

Illnesses Know No Boundaries

I.AM.SICK.

That’s right. I’m sick. Have been cursed with diarrhea and fever of approximate 39°C. I have no idea what is the precursor of this cursed situation is. But even sleeping gets me tired. Wrapped with a huge load of lethargy, my movements seem sluggish and my appetite has been reduced to zilch.

Medication taken:

Buscopan (for stomach discomfort)

Lomotil (for diarrhea)

Charcoal (to absorb toxins in stomach)

Diclofenac (painkiller for fever)

LOTS AND LOTS OF TISSUE PAPER.

*rubs hands together*

And here we go again – updating time. Right, let’s pick the story up from Saturday shall we?

I met up with Jocelyn on Saturday in the afternoon around 4 ish for a late lunch/early dinner appointment where we ate at Ichiban Boshi at Plaza Singapura. Was not really in an eating mood so did not have much. The reason why we were in the mall in the first place was because I was there to add another Transformers: Revenge Of The Fallen figure to my collection from Movie Replica. And this time it is Jolt, the Chevrolet Volt. Will post pictures once I have taken them tomorrow during the day.

So then we walked around in town, went and looked at the new mall, Ion – was big, another Paragon. Big brands, big spaces, many people, few buyers. Walked around a bit more and eventually sent her off at Dhoby Ghaut station where she headed back to Hougang and I made my way to Chinatown. Once there, I slowly, painstakingly made my way to Backstage as it was only 11pm and the guys – Jason and Maize – were only gonna reace 45 minutes later.

Time. Did. Not. Move.

After a lifetime, they finally showed up and we had one drink there, and it was sufficient to make us tipsy. I mean, all of us were not in in the scene for close to a month. Jason and I were in Europe and Maize, well, he doesn’t really venture to the playgrounds without us. So that meant us strutting our stuff, sashaying, bitching, laughing, rolling our way to Tantric. And there was when we hit PARTY MOOD. Let’s see, a few Gin Tonics, a few Long Island Teas and we were shaking our sorry asses all over the dance floor. Was much needed, actually, the reunion. Laughed a lot, went down the emotional road occassionally, hugged a lot, and well, you know, after 5 long years after knowing them, I must say I’m really glad to have them as my closest friends, among some. I don’t have many friends, but the few that I have ROCK MY WORLD.

Had supper at 4:30am at a nearby 24hour Indian stall (read: I was not very happy). But hunger beckons fatty food. We finally made our way back home at 5:30am, where Jason and I shared a cab and he dropped me off at Shelford. I showered with eyes half open and woke up the next day at 9:00pm. Yes people, you read right. I slept and woke up at NIGHT.

And that my avid readers, was my Saturday.

Till next time.
