Long time no see blog

s0hMood > *Hot*

Nothing much has been happening lately, so instead of boring you all with my daily do(s), I gave up blogging till something more eventful pops up. The other day we celebrated the youngest [T.A.G] member’s birthday, but the real date isn’t here yet, so that’ll be in future entries. Also, tomorrow will be attending Gil’s family X’mas eve party, so will bring more pictures next time. Oh ya, for those who don’t know, I cut my hair d. Quite short. Nevermind la, one year is enough for it to grow long again.

Waiting for concert to start

As of today, I haven’t been shopping much. Sien la. Always go shop also couldn’t find something to buy. Only manage to get one pair of flats. Anyhow, will shop more in the future. Must be fully equipped before heading back to Adelaide lo. And the purpose of this entry, is to blog about this concert I attended yesterday with Gil, Han and Bee Kee.

The stage is farrrrrrrrr away

It was a crowded affair. Fortunately we have VIP seats stands, but unfortunately, the VIP zone is very VERY WIDE. Almost every single soul present there, who has a ticket is a VIP -.-“. Anyhow, free thing is like that la. We didn’t want to squeeze into the super tight crowd in fear of smelling other people’s sweat. So we stood quite a distance from the crowd so that we have oxygen in abundance. If you watched the event on NTV7, don’t say you saw me hor, it is impossible cause the camera didn’t take image of the back of the crowd. Too disperse d, very ugly ma.

David Tao: if you see clearly, nah, the miniature man mah him lo. Haha

We didn’t get to see the artist’s face with our naked eyes because they came in mini(s). Sigh, like Barbie doll like that, super faraway, but we can still see them move here and there la, haha. And there’s two TV screens to aid our vision. And my camera also super cha, zoom till max also kenot take nice pictures, I gave up totally. Only right till the end, I tried to capture some shots la. Blur is better than nothing ma.

When some random are singing, we take random shots

Anyhow, half of the stars there I don’t know one (all from Malaysia one), another half is a more popular mix of Malaysian, Taiwanese and Hong Kong singers. Initially we said we are going to stay until we see one of the big stars, but the organizer placed them all towards the end. So we ended up staying till the last two big stars, David Tao and Stef Sun appeared. We left right after their duet to avoid high traffic. Overall the concert was quite fun la, we spent time enjoying and critiquing singers we like and don’t recognize. We also had a good laugh on weird groups with weird songs, what “Wo tai shuai, shuo yi bu hui tan lian ai” (I’m too good looking, hence not knowing how to date/love), super wtfish.

Stef Sun: singing Hey Jude with David Tao

Lastly, most of the singers sing quite well la, except the cutesy girl. Stef Sun improved a lot from her performance in recent awards show, she sang really well, probably the best of the night la, though Grasshopper also gave a nice performance. Actually the only advantage of watching it live, is the sound and extra interview sessions during commercial breaks. The funniest one is Zai Zai’s one la, the rest all so so oni. Because the hosts kept coming up with real random so-called games. First Zhang Dong Liang was asked to point towards the crowd then the pointed group need to raise their hands la. Then Zai Zai was later asked to do the same, but the pointed group will need to flash their handphone lights. After he pointed the first time, he then asked sheepishly, “Na zhe you xi de yi yi zai na li?” (The meaning behind this game being?). Haha.

Zai Zai – Wo Bu Shi F4

David Tao – Jiu Shi Ai

I took some random videos, er, cannot see face one, only sound. Haha, those who have watched it on TV prolly won’t be interested at all. Quality also not so good. I include it just for my own record hehe. Kla, more entries next time. Chao~

Happy Birthday: Xian Boon

s0hMood > *celebration*

It has been quite a while since Xian Boon’s birthday before I finally kicked my own ass to blog about it. After three months, well, I’m not that LATE am I? Besides, they always say, better late than never right? This is one classic example, and so I think.

As I mentioned, it’s been quite long back and my brain is slowly wearing down before my eyes and my memory is not all that great at the moment. Amazingly, I don’t even remember what I ate last night (14/04/2007). I’m being serious.

Ok, I’ll blog whatever I can remember. Mind you it’s pretty hazy and vague. Oh well, at least I tried right? So here goes.

It was Xian Boon’s very special 21st birthday and we being his ultimate good friends planned to give him his most memorable birthday celebration up to date. So what’s so memorable about it? First, we went to shop for his birthday present on the faithful day itself (celebrated it earlier on 21st Jan 07), and so we bought his gifts. And we ended up buying a Hot Market cheapass 5 ringgit poster of his favourite group, Twins. And that’s from 8 of us. Real classic eh? I’m sure he’ll remember us forever. What an unusual 21st bday gift, ain’t we SMART? He even took a picture of it and posted it in his blog. ROFL.

Our gift is the biggest of all!!!

Then we went to Giant to get some cream and smarties. Went back to my house, and wait for Mei Shan to arrive with the sponge cake, extra cream, candles and base plate. She even bought almond sprinkles. LOL. So what does it sound like? Yeah, we made a cake for him. Awwwww, isn’t that sweet? We’re such GOOD friends, remember? This is what FRIENDS do for each other. Though he already bought himself a large key shaped cake, we insisted.

So me, Mei Shan and Wai Han start spreading cream around the cake. And as most of you know, sponge cake has a hollow centre and hence, we filled half of it with cream (yummy!!!). Wanted to fill the whole thing up but we ran out of precious cream. So I ran frantically around the kitchen, rummaging through the fridge to look for some decorative fruits. And all I found were grapes. Green ones. Now I know this sounded elaborate but wait for it, it’s worth reading I ensure you! The cream spread wasn’t very well done and it was somewhat watery, soaking the soft sponge cake, making it extremely soggy. Ewwww. So I remember from secondary elective cooking classes, I put a lil too much starch on the fish cooked in black sauce (something we invented on spot) and the sauce concentrated within seconds. And so I decided to try the same method and conveniently, my mum has a huge storage of starch flour. We dabbed it all along the sides of the cake, making the cream stiff and permanently stuck onto the cake. Well, you get the picture. Then we sprinkle a lot some more starch on top to make the cake prettier and harder since it’s all soggy. Ah, geniuses we ARE~ Then we sprinkle the sliced almonds and finished the cake with loads of smarties and grapes, of course. I wish I can show you the end product, but I couldn’t find the picture. Anyway, I’m sure each of you already have a clear idea of what it looks like. Actually, you’ll sort of see it later. Just wait.

So then I frantically look around my house again for any good looking boxes with no avail. Finally settled with this fit but ugly looking cardboard box. Chuck the cake in and rush to Xian Boon’s house where a buffet style party is held since we were already VERY late. So we rush rush rush, finally reached. Then we rush some more to the fridge so that the cake can hardened up a bit more. Plus it’s meant to be a surprise. So we told Boon not to peep at it. And he didn’t. Well, he should HAVE. So we were waiting for that moment, for the other guests to have go home since we didn’t want to cause any embarrassment. You see, our cake wasn’t exactly pretty. Fine, I admit. It’s ugly. Even my mother who saw the cake when we were on our way out said, is it edible? -.-‘ My mum doubt my skills.

So the moment finally arrived and come, come, come, this video will do a far better talking that I do. Dozo~~

I’m sure at this point, ya’ll agree with me, friends are just the next best thing to diamonds. LOL. The funny thing is, he actually thinks the cake is edible because it looks nice, my, he’s too generous.

p/s We are not that cheapskates la, his gifts are actually the T-shirts from Baleno and a sporty Adidas watch (was it Adidas? something like that la) as seen in the above picture.
