In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.

Laundry with Mum

After from a satisfying weekend in Singapore, followed by a week in Penang (work training), I took out my laundry from my Penang trip to add to the laundry basket...

...only to find it was already overflowing. I had work on Sunday the next day too. Er, oops?

It was dire situations like these where one must take emergency options.

*dials on phone* "Hey mum! There's something I need help with..."


Mum: You see, you should separate the whites from the blacks like this.

Me: Uh huh.

Mum: *holding up a small white and black striped shirt* ...this shirt is very small.

Me: Hey, my friends helped me choose it. You think that's small? Hold on. *trudge to room and pulls out a whiteshirt*

Me: This is the shirt SK chose for me. (Wait for it...)

Mum: *gawks at shirt with mouth open*

Me: (One, two, three, four, five...)

Mum: ...she chose THAT? Can you even wear THAT?

Me: (Five seconds!) Takes getting used to. Big, oversized shirts are no longer in fashion mum.

Mum: So THAT is in fashion?

Me: Erm... Well... actually.... no straight man would be caught dead wearing a shirt this size.


Me: I so need to buy new underwear.

Mum: Hrm?

Me: For one thing, my underwear is really old.

Mum: And?

Me: And I think some of them are dad's. (He passed away not long ago)

Mum: Ewwwwww~~~!

It's here!

...or at least it's in Japan.

You can not advance

If you've been following my blog, you'd know I'm an Evangelion fan. Pretty much a flawed jewel, as I've mentioned in previous posts. But I love it all the same.

The latest Evangelion movies are actually a remake of the television series that made a stupendous amount of money for Gainax in merchendise (what, gross USD2 billion????). The Eva movies are a great way to milk a money cow, for sure. (It appears to be beating the most successful movies in Japan in the year so far)

The first of four movies has come and gone, the latest one which I want to watch is the second in the series. While the first movie was nearly a scene for scene replication of the original animation aired on tv, the second one is soooooooo different from the original apparently that fans just *have* to watch it to see the differences for themselves. To put things into perspective, rabid anime fans are the type of people who take great offense to a small change in the name of a character.

So yeah. Can't wait to watch the show myself, trying very hard not to read the evil EVIL spoilers all over the internet. It's going to take a very long time before the show comes to (limitted) screens in Malaysia or DVD though. :(
