the past has drugged my thoughts. I like it though.

Jakarta got me thinking.
This is my home, where everything happened. The city that has inspired me in so many ways. Two days back home served as a reminder for all the corners, roads, malls, cafe's, gardens, and places I've shared awesome times in. Just by sightseeing through your car window, your eyes and thoughts serve as a journal/diary. Page by page.

I viewed the life i once lived and the current one I was in.

And damn....

22 years in the making.
22 years of my life has passed me by from the baby footsteps that have walked the earth up to the sandals and wedges that stride through the halls, malls, cafe's and clubs of today.

Just imagine, all those years of experience coming back to you. Simply priceless.

All those kids going crazy on swings, swinging to fun.
All those memories of naive kisses and sick puppy dovey love.
All those old-school films with intimate scenes you were oblivious to cuz daddy made you go to the study room so he could hog it with mum.
All those balcony climbs and kiddy guerilla tactics.
ALL those dodgeball games and loud cries from the victims
ALL those beautiful trips and smiles from a two buck shop
ALL those zoos and animals you wanted to keep as pets and ma-pa said 'How do we fit it in?'
ALL those trips on rollercoasters and rides
ALL those early morning pancakes mum had time to make
ALL those thoughts of no stress and worries
ALL those cooking n arts n craft clubs u were in to feel like you belonged
ALL those nights when Daddy made you sing a duet with him
ALL those highschool day sleepovers
ALL those highschool day gossips and jokes
ALL those dumb-ass break ups and great company
ALL the memories of nonsense, friendship, innocence, vulnerability, and pure-drug fun. All goes into an everlasting list.

My everlasting list that is.

I miss the past. Whatever happens in the past is good for your future. There is no such thing as whatever happens in the past, remains there. To me it's whatever happens in the past remains a drug in ur present thoughts. No matter how happy, angry, or sad of a pokerface you are, you see who you were and who you wanted to be and compare a similar moment or feel. My trigger of the past? Perfumes. Every perfume I have, I keep the bottles for both looks and memories of the past. For example, my last perfume Eternity by CK. It gives me memories of this one guy. And how charismatic and charming he was to me. Sexy, yet obedient. Escada-Island brings back my college days with friends and our spontaneous trips. Estee Lauder-Pleasures gives me the old-school church days of cathecism classes, summer school, and ice cold cool-aid and roll-ups. This is really making me smile. But no pressure, it remains a non-fiction part of my life that I have moved on from. But hey, I still get my occassional cool-aids and roll ups. And what's great about it is that it still tastes the same. There are some things in life that should not move on, because if they do, they will go bankrupt.

There's so many things stirring me up. Stressing me out. Of course i hate overdosing on stress. So, i'll try to keep things with the flow. I'm the type of person that gets agitated easily and I refuse to let time take its course. I want to kick time in the butt and take situations in my course. I want to control it by my actions and words of pisdom. I am quite the impulsive cookie. Not good. I always feel that time doesnt do things for u and u must beat it by doing what your instincts tell you to do before time decides on ur fate. So far, it's been alright. I will try to keep the cool-aids rolling. It's just so scary how if you turn left here, there are chances you will have a different day than if you had turned right. Or if you pick this cafe or that one? mind bugging ain't it. Sometimes, when i refuse to go here and there, I try to just force myself out of spontaneity, afraid I might miss out on the time of my life. I haven't had one cuz i've had many good times in a row until i'm desperate to find that OOONNNE BIIIIG kick ass time.
Alright, i am starting to be a typing-active brat.
Better stop right about now.

Yo wat is up fairy?

now isn't that ad cute. It obviously doesn't apply here.

Wanna know what's new in town?

Last week or so, I went for the launch of La Clandestine and Angelique Absinthe at Werners.

The event was so-so. But the cocktails were yumsters man. I think absinthe is a pretty sinful drink if taken advantage of. But if you know how to appreciate the wormwood and drink it respectively, it'll be a sweet dream.

I thought the drink was born in Prague. What do you know? Switzerland's the motherland.

La Clandestine-blanche absinthe


I quote that "it is the only absinthe handcrafted in the village where absinthe was born. It's creator, Claude Alain has won the Golden Spoon for the fourth consecutive year, at the remarkable The Absinthiades in Pontarlier, France"

Angelique-genuine Verte Suisse absinthe

Doesn't it look like you're drinking a bunch of fairies?

I quote again that "it is distilled using 12 plants, including angelica and grande wormwood from Val-de-Travers. Steeping a mixture of aromatic plants in the distillate produces its natural colour"

There was this cocktail my tastebuds absolutely adored. It was called JADED. Taste like mojito, except a bitchier one. Good for the soul though.


Jaded Cocktail

30ml La Clandestine Absinthe
15ml Monin Passion Fruit Syrup
20ml Boiron White Peach Puree
1 nos Lime Wedge
Ice Cube

Mix all ingredients into mixing glass & shake. Strain content into a 12oz catalina/sling glass. Garnish with lemongrass stalk and mint sprig.

Doesn't that just sound practical? It's good though. I'm only gonna give you one recipe cuz the other cocktails weren't up to my liking. Just don't drink it neat, unless you want to challenge the gimmick bullshit to prove its real. By all means, thumbs up to u.

It's sweet, so it taste better than all the shitty liquor out there. I'm a beer drinker but absinthe has made its way with me. Perhaps its psychologically sweet?

This is the image Absinthe has spread to the world so far.


This is the fairy you suppose to be buddies with when you've been absinthe-fucked.

Gotta admit though. It is a gorgeous sight when high. I guess we have to really believe in it to see it? haha

Oh well i'm on a detox period now. No hoegarden or tiger at the moment. I dont get how people love stout? It tastes like shit. Oh well our tastebuds all have different opinions. Respect. No absinthe for now either.

I didn't take any of these photos, i googled it. im a cheat. But these were the actual products of that launch EXCEPT the ones with fairies humpin on it.

Listmaker? more like listbreaker!

25 things derived from fbook notes. Someone created it. Not a hard thing to do, but to me it's a success for personal reasons. I try to list out 25 things weekly. Daily would be a thumbs up. I like listing short points for a change. Instead of having to use conjunctions all ze time. In 25 points, its more accurate to tell the things u want, need, and are thinking of in a short period of time.

So here are the twenty five things i feel like listing down

1. I miss listening to Jewel

2. I promised sari ratu nasi padang in kota damansara will be either today or tomoro's dinner

3. Has got to keep praying for mummy's health

4. Can't wait for that BB javelin so I can use those cute condoms number 2 bought for me

5. I will always love INCUBUS, even when they go mainstream and annoying fans out there act like they love em, when really its just Brandon they love

6. I'm getting that buddha tattoo regardless-Sorry lord. i have a spiritual connection with buddha heads.

7. Has to crack up "The TEMPLE" book

8. Misses having meaningful conversations, suffocating laughter, and crazy tumbles

9. Just realized i have no ultimate playground/sanctuary to rant/release thoughts in

10. Needs to drive around town or away from it----ALONE

11. It's been more than 10 years since mum and dad split. Felt like it just happened.

12. as the rush comes-armin

13. Wants to travel: eat and drink whatever comes her way

14. Thinks Chris Cornells third solo album 'Scream'is a hardcore suicide-how unfortunate for such a good lookin chap

15. It's been 5 years and Stacey Kent still helps me chill out

16. Pancakes, jam, whipped cream, block of butter. my seventh heaven

17. finally tried Absinthe. where were them green fairies?

18. loves esquire magazine covers

19. Doesn't know what to get for Brenda for her bday. hmm...toughie tricky

Perhaps a beautiful whacky slap of flowers?

20. Needs to cut down on em deathstix

21. Will throw that sandwich margarita day by the poolside

22. Doesn't wanna go home after work. wants tea in a nice tea place

23. Animal of the day-DUGONG

24. Destination of the day-Cambodia :)

25. "I like" of the day: juice 2. iced water 3. hot milo 4. guava juice 5. lemonade 6. Beer 7. poison 8.milk 9.Coca cola So cool huh? well its not super creative, but hey i like things organized and labelled. Life's neater that way. Too bad it's not mine, but someone elses. (check it out, if you like the concept of magnificent "here and there's")

Ok im done with this exercise. Going for a smoke, forget 20.

Rooster off to take too long to upload. so there are only a few from ur loser blooger. ME.
