Car got stolen

July 29, 2009

I went to dinner with my parents earlier by RH Plaza and dad parked near Green Gallery at the side that faced the main road. 

Food was taking a long time and I mentioned it a few times. I even suggested that we cancel the last order but instead my dad went and double checked whether our order was being prepared. We were told that they were cooking the food and will be sent over soon. Somehow something was keeping us there longer, longer than we should be.

Just before 8 pm we were finally done and walked towards the car. At first I was looking around for the car because I somehow had forgotten where it was parked. The car was no where in sight. Then all of us realised that the car was gone. We stood around for a few minutes speechless and in shock.

As we waited for a ride home, I kept waiting for someone to jump out and say “GOTCHA!” and someone would drive the car back to us, like for some silly joke from a TV show. We parked by the main road with all the hustle and bustle going around between 7 – 8pm for heaven’s sake. How the f*ck did they pull it off?!?!?!

After we got home, we took my car to lodge a report at the police station. I never knew this but the inspector told us that the RH Plaza area has been popular for such activity. Apparently we were also told that there have been a lot of reports lodged for stolen Proton Waja. When asked why, the inspector refrained for commenting. So now I’m totally curious why. Do they target Wajas because it’s easier to break into? Or do they want it for the parts? The thing is the Anybody know?  Please enlightened me.

Nothing too valueble in the car other than house keys and some bills. Of course if they wanted to they can come barging in with the house keys and rob us since the address is on the bills. Rest assured tomorrow we’ll change all the locks in the house.  I know that I won’t sleep much tonight. 

What happened to peaceful Kuching? Snatch thieves are on the rise (and I almost became a victim 3 years ago), house break-ins are so common nowadays even in broad daylight, then my dog Shadow got poisoned back in 2005  from an attempted break-in that failed so they wanted revenge. Somehow I don’t feel like Kuching is safe anymore. Then again, is anywhere safe anymore?

To the thief/thieves who I’m sure won’t ever read this (but please allow me to vent my anger), I hope you get some form of STD until your privates rot. I hope where ever you’re heading with my dad’s car, you’ll get a flat tyre and when you step out to fix it up, you get run over by a truck after stepping on your privates that fell off.

I spent most of my morning yesterday cleaning up my room and organizing mostly the pile of stuff I have laying around. Since I finally returned all library books not too long ago, I now have space for my own books and whatnot. Still cannot believe that throughout the last three years or so I have borrowed more or less 200 books. That’s just insane! I don’t even remember going through that many books.

Speaking of books, I finished the novel I was reading entitled “The Choice” by Nicholas Sparks. It was a tearjerker! As I have said in my Twitter, I almost brawled my eyes out. It was a very touching story and as soon as I reached the good part, I couldn’t put the book down. I don’t normally finish a book in one sitting anyway.

Since I haven’t had much to do lately, I’ve done a lot of thinking. I tend to have the need to vent my frustrations or thoughts or problems on here but I refrain myself from doing so mainly because some things are just too personal to share with the whole world. Sometimes I wished I had started this blog anonymously. I know it sounds kinda childish and irresponsible but at least I can write whatever I want. I’ve had thoughts of restricting access to this blog for certain people but when I think about the time and effort that went into creating this blog I felt that it wasn’t worth it. As most of you already know I have the tendency to over think things, therefore I overanalysed things.

Aside from thinking about issues in my life and what I want to do with it, I’ve watched a lot of ER that I bought from the China lady. I used to never miss a single episode when I was younger (damn I feel old just saying that) and somehow they stopped airing it on TV here. Anyhow, I never paid much attention to where the show was based in and watching it again, I realised that it was based in Chicago. Watching the show makes me miss Rob so much because there were some scenes which were filmed in places that we went to, like downtown Chicago, Navy Pier and Grant Park.  

I’m babbling aren’t I? I better call it a night and get some sleep. Haven’t been sleeping as good as I want to with these nightmares/dreams I keep having. One involved a lot of snakes and the thought of it makes my skin crawl. Okay I’m still babbling…

P/S This post is untitled because I can’t be arsed to think of one right now.

Tuning out

July 23, 2009

For those of you who don’t already know this, Rob and I try to talk everyday for at least 2 hours at a time. We talk about absolutely everything and anything under the sun, no matter how weird, corny, tasteless, dirty, ridiculous etc You get the point. Yesterday he started talking about computer stuff…

R: You know that computer that *insert name* gave me? Well I was trying to fix it up and I need this *insert part name*. I saw it on eBay for auction and it was about $38…

S: ….

R: *as he went about explaining exactly what part he needs*

S: ….

R: Are you still there?

S: Take note that I’m trying to tune you out :smug:

R: Oh you suck!

S:  I know! :))

R:  :|    Fine, I won’t tell you about it.

S: Really? That’s great! :smug:

R: …..

S: You really wanna tell me about this don’t you?

R: Nope, don’t need to.

S: Okay, cool.  :D

R: …..

S: *snicker*

A couple minutes of silence goes by…

S: I know you really want to tell me. You’re just holding out.

R: Nope, I’m okay. I don’t have to tell you.

S: Okay, suit yourself.

Then we started to talk about something trivial. When there was a pause of silence…

S: So you’re really not going to discuss geek stuff with me?

R: Nope. I’m good.

S: Okay, just so you know I KNOW YOU WANT TO TELL ME   :))

R: Nuh uh. I’m good.

Another few minutes goes by…

R: Okay fine! I’ll tell you!

S:  =))

R:  :|

S:  ROFLMAO Oh yeah, sure, make it sound like I’m forcing you to tell me.

R: YOU SUCK

S:   =))

R: *attempts not to laugh*

And that brings our score to: Shin – 537209, Rob – 450

And he told me all about buying a broken computer for the parts that he can use to upgrade his “project computer” as he calls it. (Update: I have gathered more information. Rob told me he has a “few” project computers. Two in the living room, 2 in the dog room and 1 on his bedroom floor). Before any of you think I was serious about tuning him out, it was all for fun. Ya know, me being a smartass and all. We joke around all the time.

*Update #2*

Rob just saw the update and he said “OH YOU SUCK!” Then I said I have to do another update and if I didn’t it would be a travesty to justice. To which he again said “YOU STILL SUCK!”.

*Update #3*

Rob just said that the laksa I had this morning must have stimulated my “sarcasm gland”.

=))

Quick note

July 17, 2009

Too busy to blog the rest of this week.  Have tons to rant but must focus on more important things for now.

I have to deal with stupidity and this will probably cost me big time. Either way, I *will* finish what I started. This has taken me more time than I ever expected. Not giving up now because deep down inside I know I am not a quitter no matter how many times I say/think I wanna quit.

I shall update next week.

Miniature Golf

July 14, 2009

On my last day in Chicago, Rob and I went miniature golfing.

Photobucket

It was an indoor glow-in-the-dark (GITD) miniature golf place and we had so much fun. It was a good distraction for us. Rather than pouting and tearing up at the thought of me leaving, we goofed off and laughed like crazy.

Photobucket

It was my first time playing miniature golf, or any other type of golf for that matter. The place was super cool and I’ve never been in  room with so many black lights. I was secretly glad that I wasn’t wearing a white bra underneath my black shirt that day. Hehehe 

Photobucket

Photobucket

If memory serves me correctly it was a 18-hole course and we were given GITD putters and golf balls. I, of course insisted on the pink ball and putter. I mean it’s not like Rob would prefer the pink over the orange one. :P

After scouting around a bit, we got a *bit* goofy.

 Photobucket

This is Rob showing his GITD balls, every pun intended.

And then, here’s me (because I have no balls) with my GITD nipples…

Photobucket

Camwhoring begins..

So happy! :x

Photobucket

And then we played…

Photobucket

I sucked at miniature golf so I’m pretty sure I will suck more at actual golf. I kept missing the ball when I try to hit it and Rob would laugh at me. When I finally got the hang of hitting the ball, I had to learn how to aim it. The goal is to hit the ball into the hole with the least number of tries. At one hole, it took me about 15 hits just to get it in. Yes, Rob was laughing hysterically. As revenge I would use my putter and block his shots when it was his turn.

Photobucket

We were the only two people playing at the time so when we reached hole number 15, I took the balls and went back to number 5. I know we weren’t suppose to but no one else was there so I’m sure nobody would mind. :P

Randomness

July 9, 2009

Many random things today, all jumbled inside my head.

Apparently now Barn Buddy limits the amount of weeds and bugs you can place per stage per plant, which is ONCE. I started losing interest in playing when I found that out yesterday. ~le sigh~

Personally I thought weed-ing and bug-ing people was the fun part of the game. I find the sight of another’s farm covered with bugs and weeds hilarious, to be completely honest. :D Since Rob has spent a few bucks on this game I’m going to play until my BB credits run out and then I will stop. Like I said, it isn’t as fun anymore.

It’s their way of stopping people from going crazy bug-ing and weed-ing in order to acquire experience points and move up a level. Ummmm hello? What’s wrong with that? Isn’t that the whole point of the game? To move forward a level? It’s not like it’s cheating. I mean people really put in some effort to weed and bug people. I know Rob and I certainly do! We giggle like crazy every time we do it to each other.

I had a dream a couple nights ago about my wedding! I woke up half way and thought “I have to go back to sleep! I need to dream more about it!” but unfortunately I didn’t get to continue my dream.   :(   I almost forgot I had that dream until I suddenly remembered it later that day. I can’t remember the details now though, but I bet there was a lot of pink involved. Hehehe

Went to the Hilton for its 21st Anniversary BBQ buffet lunch by the poolside over the weekend and it wasn’t that good at all. People do get very rude when they are hungry. Because there were so many people, there wasn’t enough food for everyone so many of us had to wait in the buffet line for quite a while. There was a rude lady behind me who kept sighing really hard and mumbling complaints. I don’t care that she complained so much, I just didn’t appreciate having her breath on the back of my neck. Lady, do you know what personal space is???

The worst part was she left the line and came back about 10 minutes later and cut into the line again. She told the people behind me (who weren’t there when she left) that she was behind me before and cut in! I was tempted to say something but decided not to because knowing my luck she could be the person interviewing me for a job.

Speaking of rude people cutting into lines, when I was shopping at Watson’s the other day this girl decided to cut right in front of me at the cashier, apparently thinking that her conditioner was more important than everyone else’s purchase. The guy at the cashier looked at me and then her, and this girl just pushed her conditioner on the counter insinuating that he should check her out. Cashier guy looked at me as if wanting me to agree to it so I got very annoyed. I said “Everyone here is queueing up, isn’t that how it’s suppose to be?”. People looked over and girl became very self-conscious and said “Oh sorry sorry”. I said “No problem” and smiled, thinking in my head what a bitch she is. :P  Now, is it just me or is a cashier suppose to say something when people cut in a queue? 8-|

Went to Guardian a few nights ago and again I was faced with a rude bitch. I paid up and this cashier girl gave me a change of RM1.35 or something. My point is there was a RM1 note given to me and it was torn. I was surprised so in reaction I just said “Eh ini koyak lah” (This is torn) to the cashier and placed the RM1 note on the counter. Her facial expression turned more bitter and black than burnt toast (She already looked unfriendly in the first place). She then placed my bag of things on the counter rather hard and I judge this by the clank I heard. There was glass bottled deodrant in the bag by the way.

She didn’t say anything to me and continued checking out the next person. I thought fine I’ll let her finish and waited. This next person paid with a credit card so while waiting for the transaction to clear, this cashier just stood there and waited, instead of giving me another RM1 note. When she was finally done with that customer, she in all her glory pushed a few buttons on the cash register, rather “enthusiastically” I might say, as to show dissatisfaction.

Her colleague walked over enquiring what she was doing and at that moment she took another RM1 note from the cash register, gave it to her colleague and said “Nah bagi ngan nya” (There, give it to her). I was f*cking standing right in front of her. What? She thinks she’s too good to even hand me a RM1 note? If she thinks she’s too good for the job then quit! Go be a brain surgeon then or go save the thinning ozone layer or cure cancer then no one will bug her about a torn RM1 note. ^$%!%!#!#@# BITCH was so testing my patience. At one point I was tempted to throw the RM 1 in her face and tell her to f*ck off but didn’t. I know manners very well, thank you. I took my money, looked at her colleague who I think was a supervisor because  the difference in uniform and said “She is VERY rude”.  With a name like “Siti Shirley” (or as Rob said “Shitty Shirley =)) ) someone should really teach her some manners and common courtesy. BITCH.

I don’t know what is with me and meeting the series of rude people in the past week. Hoping for a better week ahead!

Hooked on Barn Buddy

July 7, 2009

I finally jumped in the band wagon of Barn Buddy, an application on FB. I have to say that I am totally hooked on it.

I am so hooked on it that I stay up later at night just so I can either steal other people’s crops or harvest mine so that other people can’t steal it. Yes I am sneaky like that. LOL

I also got Rob hooked on it. I keep bug-ing and weed-ing him and he does the same to me. =))

Photobucket

The other day we were talking about how to get more Barn Buddy credits to buy fertilizers and I found that you can actually purchase 4,000 credits for USD1 by PayPal or credit card.

Rob decided to buy us both 4,000 credits each. Lol

Photobucket

It was probably his weirdest USD1 spent on anything. I laughed my ass off at what he did but at the same time I realized just how addicted he is on Barn Buddy now, not to mention how proud he gets when he manages to steal plants from other people just before they harvest.  ;))

Photobucket

Within seconds after paying, I got my gift!

Photobucket

 Photobucket

 Photobucket
I starterd out the day with 2,400 credits and then I had 6,400 credits. :D

Yesterday he surprised me with another 4,000 credits as I was complaining about how I have already spent half my credits and that I couldn’t justify buying the different fertilizers I wanted to make my plants grow faster. Thanks baby, for feeding my addiction! :x

Navy Pier Part 2

July 2, 2009

Photobucket

We were just sitting on a bench hoping to catch another sunset together. Unfortunately it got kinda cloudy so instead we people-watched. Within a few minutes we saw a bunch of nicely dressed people walking towards the boat that was right in front of us. Someone was having a wedding reception on the boat!

Photobucket
I’m assuming the theme is purple :P

Photobucket
There’s the couple!

Photobucket
Love her bouquet but not too crazy about the dress though.

Rob and I were kinda betting on the number of people who were invited. At first it didn’t seem like an extravagant wedding so we estimated about 50 people. One hundred tops.

As 7.30pm got closer a LOT more people showed up, queueing to get on the boat. I then changed my estimate to between 200-250 people.

I also made Rob promise me that if he wins the jackpot one day he will give me a sunset wedding cruise on Lake Michigan and everyone will have to wear something pink! :D Yours truly will of course be dressed in a pink accented princessy gown, holding a round bouquet of roses and lilies.   :dream:

Photobucket

As soon as I was satisfied with stalking taking pictures, we had dinner at McDonald’s. Simple, cheap and fast. We then moved on for our night ride on the ferris wheel.

Yeah I know we look greasy. It’s been a whole day out!

After the ride, we walked around Navy Pier again to catch some night shots.

Rested my camera on the rail in Night mode to take this shot

Normal mode with highest ISO in my camera. 

We found a perfect spot to watch the fireworks show. Navy Pier apparently have these fireworks show 4 times a week ALL summer long EVERY YEAR. Can you imagine how much money they spend on fireworks alone every year? The show was spectacular to say the least, accompanied by catchy music! It is probably the best fireworks show I have ever seen in my life. Rob took videos of the whole thing but it’s a pain in the ass to upload such a big file so you’ll just have to judge by the pictures.

Everybody rushed to go home after the show and there was a LONG line for the free trolley ride to the train station. In the end we decided to take the bus and paid USD2 each. By the time we got back home it was already 1.30am and our feet were aching.

 

P/S: I know my pictures aren’t great in quality. I want an DSLR!
