Give your piece of mind My brain feels slightly rejuvenated and caffeinated now. I'm using the free wifi service at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf at SS2 now since the Streamyx in my house is still down. Sipping low-guilt mocha latte while snuggling in a comfy and squashy couch is just perfect. The low-guilt thing is supposed to have no sugar added but it still tasted sweet to me. Maybe it's the mocha that's making it sweet. Hmm.
It's going to be another two days or more till I get to surf as freely as I used to. For now, it's pretty limited and I get quite cranky when I don't get to utilise the internet as often as I'd like to.
The highlight of my week was an activity I thought I'd never let myself succumb to. It was my college mate, Melissa's birthday on Monday and we were supposed to go to Redbox that afternoon after our lecture. However, the date was postponed to Tuesday, not that I mind that much. It was the fact that the activity that afternoon was karaoke. Yep. You read right. Karaoke. The last thing I'd expect myself to do. Nevertheless, I let myself be taken away in the excitement and intrigue of this singing activity that has supposedly enraptured Japan and now Malaysia.
I think it was the fact that I'd never done anything quite like this or as crazy as this before that ultimately allowed myself be taken away by my friends to indulge in such an event. I hate to say it but I think the bathroom-singer in me came out that afternoon as the four of us; Melissa, Huai Yi, Justin and I, sang our hearts out and danced quite a bit to songs ranging from Elton John, Phantom of the Opera, Britney Spears, Disney songs, and diva-like songs like Mariah Carey and Barbara Streisand. We were there from 3 pm to 6 pm and by the end of the belting-our-hearts-out session, my throat was sore and I could barely scream if I wanted to. I actually enjoyed screaming my lungs out to Linkin Park's "In the End". It's a great stress buster, it is. But in the end, I quite enjoyed it and am quite glad that I got to experience this karaoke-ing session for once. Not too sure if I'm up for another round but we'll see about it in the future.
What was I thinking about agreeing to go karaoke-ing?
The nicest shot of the day. For me that is.
I think my parking meter is running out so I have to go now. Bye and don't be too harsh on me about the pics.
It seems that the Streamyx in the house is fixed and I can go online as I like now. Woot!
I know I had some rant ideas in this head of mine but it doesn't seem to be flowing as well as I'd like it to flow. I just made myself an asparagus topped with parmesan cheese toastie and dijonnaise sauce and it tasted yummy. The veggie craving is still going strong and I don't expect it to stop anytime soon. I seem to be making and eating lots of sandwich toasties these days. My fave filling are still PB&J and tuna with cheese. Melted cheese can be both a delish and a damned thing. Delish for being just oh-so-gooey and soft but damned for being so hot that it burns your tongue and lips. The latter happened to me twice already. But I still love melted cheese all the same.
I may return tonight for a long-fulfilled rant post. Now I feel like drinking Campbell's instant mushroom cheese soup.
