bad decisions

"mr koh, what's your rush?", the traffic police asked.

i had revved up to only 113km/h [according to the tracking meter] and the WRX spotted me b4 i have visual with the blinking blue lights on the expressway shoulder. i hit my brakes and return to the lane2 and drove passed them slowly. behind my rear view mirror the traffic police remain still. after about 200m i see them speeding up seemed heading somewhere.
so they stopped me. "what's is your rush, do u know how fast you were travelling?". i answered with little hesitation, "110km/h". "are u rushing off to somewhere?" i said no, "just travelling". "have u been drinking?", "nope, i just finished work and i'm rushing home to sleep, i got nigth duty later", i finally came out with an excuse.
i had a bad record last month, a warning letter from the traffic police for speeding. and i was wondering if i had not slow down n took a side track to skip them, would they have capture my data tru my ERP device.
my medi for my infected tonsils. 2dat break for me from work.
the TP let me off .... "try to be safe" in a stern voice.
my 3k investment had a surprise chip from no where. i dont recall hitting my watch against anything that piercing. second injury to this watch, but unlike the first, this chip is incorrectable.

need for speed

my thoart is damaged. it's not a sore, but rather the feel of a pain like a muscle swell. it's worst when i sneeze, it'll like tear my thoart. i've been drinking plenty of water, but when i sneeze all the work is gone. just sneezed.
need for speed carbon was rejected from my purchase list just b4 the game's launch in late october. i downloaded the demo on Live and the graphics n framerate sucked bigtime. i was so keen on the collector's edition til the demo screwup. but i thought, it'll be cool on my pocket not to get anotehr game. 2 months later, after my rearlip, and more gametime on ridge racer 6, the heat came back and i bought the game 2nite.

i had to choose 3 cat, from exotic to muscle to tuner. this choice should path my unlocks later in the game. tho i like the handling of exotics, but i would love to drive the jap cars to the lambos n lotus so i took tuners. the graphics are pretty insane, tho nothing matches GoW or anything you'll see in PS3, the framerate n graphics was so much improved from that lame demo. it's now playing what i couldnt do on pc when i had NFS Most Wanted. so glad i got this game.
everyman needs to handle some screws sometime, this is a great tool, weighs well in your hand too, if u get my drift.

i like to stock up necessities when i'm rich. cos when i get broke n dailies expire it's tough to look bad. after my dental i ought to replace my aging toothbrush so i was hunting fot multipack oral Bs. multi pack can come cheap but they'll bundle cheaper models.

bringing twiggy alone to the vet was alright. but she puked when i stopped the car. guess it's motion sickness since i used the pet taxi crate instead of her royal purple baggie. twiggs growled at other dogs at the vet at bukit purmei. vet's a young chap n the recept's a saucy eloquent lady.

i told myself to check my storage if i still have one toothbrush spare, i'm real stingy when it comes to food n necessities. n truly, after getting buy3get2free generic oralBs, i found i have one superior one waiting at home for me. gave one toothbrush to my dad as inteneded, n i'm gonna choose red for my current brush. i love red, like cherry F&N, taste sweet.

got my $4 voucher from gamescore for they have altered the price for Lost Planet. collected my art book that came in different shipping as the game. n EDGE .... buying magazines again ???

a swift wind blew n now i'm hunting for a psp game .... might target rideg racer 2 or killzone liberation.

oh my xmas gift from my wife which i have not taken a pic of. gonna fill the cup with fizzies after dinner.

devil inside

my rear lip i ordered from MKY took 3weeks instead of 10days to arrive via sea. finally got it fixed this morning after work near his block at the multi storey carparkat tampines. took an hour, with a guest cat who favours my company.

my front lip was done by him quite awhile back, got busted at the carpark of a hotel, n got it patched by old friend hwee boon, whom now takes charge of his father's car paint spray n repair workshop at sin min. it's nice to have him as an alliance, on car accident matters n such. i have avoided driving near his workshop, because many times it became a bad omen to visit him soon after. at least 3 occasions i remembered.

i've added a muffler tip i bought from autobacs this evening. feel strange without a exhaust tip.

my wife smsed me this afternoon, informing me she'll be extending another day stay at PJ KL. looks like i gotta bring twiggy to the vet alone 2mrw at PAWS. she'll be getting her 3rd vaccination. she's 4mths old now.

with my wife away i took a chance to hang out with my 2 nephews, don n emmanuel, took them for a short drive around the neighbourhood. and too, time to catch up with some gaming. my 5hrs sleep isnt helping, but my mind seems at ease 2nite. yep i do missed my wife .... hope we'll spend some quality time over xmas dinner. my devil tattoo on my right chest. i've got 4 tatts so far, would like to have a star tattoo someday.

quite gone gin

i posted in to sell off Viva Pinata + the faceplate and Project Dark Zero 360 games as i was not having enuff time for them. i got an sms in 30mins and the deal was sealed. met this guy and his girlfriend at Far East Plaza since i needed to check on Bape Workshop within the building. had got the address this time, the last hunt was unfruitful and i began to ponder if i heard my colleague Khong Hui correctly. there was this cool Bape Gold Member Tee at $229. was at the verge of getting it but the plans for the day saved me with worthy purchases.

it nice to see the smile on the buyer's girlfriend when they got my viva pinata. it's a joy to pass your games to the next person who gets it at a budget price, tho i havent got any 2nd hand games yet.

Hooked on Fish at Sin Min Plaza was full. i brought my folks there for dinner 2day without reservation and it was not cool. we proceeded to Zui Fairprice Seafood for a set dinner, glad my mom loves the fish, tho my wife said the food was so-so. bad budgetting so i'll have to reduce my birthday dinner treat from Jurong Hill Tepanyaki to Hooked on Fish next month, shouldnt be a bad trade-off since the crowd was hungry for this stall.

my projection with Microsoft's Money 2001 says i wont be rich for the next few months. i used to buy the latest Microsoft Money to project my finances. maybe if i get Money 2007 my life will change.
this is my worthy purchase. Sith Anakin by Sideshow. was a rejected list, but now i changed my mind. will have to layoff Qui-Gon Jinn til a later date. the itch is getting sore. i saw Juuan at Simply Toys .... think he's name is adrian. he's an avid toy collector that i came to know at a Us toy forum that has shut down.

this is my sideshow trio, left to right, kit fisto from uncle loong KL, sith anakin from simply toys, darth mual from U-toys. without Qui-Gon dont i feel incomplete, my wife asked ....

x'mas is here (war is over)

twiggy's fave can food .... Solid Gold Lamb n brown rice. yummy.
my extra x'mas present .... a daiso nail clipper at $2. nice
i arrived CSC at 5pm. was happy to locate SideShow Darth Maul 12inch at U-toys. tho box was dented but it didnt matter as i'm gonna take toy out to play with it. the price was right. i inspected the face and rushed off happily to pick up my wife. elaine was jhappy with my purchase and we got pretty interested in Sidesho's line altogether, despite me being a loyal medicom fan. now i'm all enticed by anakin sith version, gonna do some research. my first SideShow figure was a 12inch Kit Fisto from KL's Uncle Loong Toys.

not another 360 game b4 Lost Planet? PDZ was newly priced at $39.90. i would love to get the collector's edition of this game but it's tough to find a first hand now at retail so i'll settle for this new range of Plat version. aha Famitsu xbox Jan issue. comes with Lost Odyssey demo disc.

bad bosses with bad balls

when weather became a foe rather than a wish. we were busy at work, actions hindered by nature's creation, the weather.

.33 scale stormtrooper blaster from simply toys. my next target, sideshow darth maul 12" .

was abit late in getting this album. songs from depeche mode, like the beatles were on my fingertips .... but i was enticed by this cd once more for it comes with a dvd with vids that i have not collected. i too discovered there's a song i'm not familiar, martyr.

do u believe in love

i've seen 2 colleagues took slow stride along the corridoors of the office late at night. back then i wondered if they were just bored. but i figured they could be sorting out their minds from problems in lives.

i've lost my smile. happiness are short pulses that subside in hours [my tension headaches last longer than happiness, ironically]. pain and suffering will live with us til our last breath; i consoled my mother, so why worry, but i just cant get this idealogy into my head. the king of pain is no king if i cant endure. quest n quests continuously challenged me, for i was once self-pronouced strong has gone weak for many years.

there is no hiding at work. i failed to find a spot i could sit to rest my disturbed mind. i resort to "getting busy" to bury the worry. i did suceed in not throwing my phone or kickin a steel plate o vent my frustration.

i was born weak and i grew up worrying the slightest. God pampered me with little failure as i was brought up.

time to change .... when i am complete, i will tackle all pain that comes head on. if i pray hard, God will be there.

it's a kind of magic

redoing an an film can sometimes make a good classic film bad. there are fans of the untouched classic star wars and there are happy fans of the 2004 version of starwars original trilogy. i am a fan of both and i accepted the new version. but for the outsiders, adding 50s music was a mistake, and reinserting the deleted scenes to resemble it closer to the novel makes the this movie loose it's magic.
