    Friday, July 18, 2008

    Whoah… I’ve been gone like forever aint it… im not dead.. im not depressed.. im not suicidal… I’ve just been tremendously busy…

    July has been good so far… I feel I got my career back on track… im with a new company now.. huge ass group… prolly everything is falling in place and if everything goes well.. should work out just fine in due time….
    Its so weird yet interesting… I’ve been killing myself for almost a year for giving up that opportunity to manage operations in Malaysia… I couldn’t help but blame that certain someone who said she’ll return.. but never did… I felt cheated and so stupid for giving up something so big..
    But opportunities do come around a second time.. and hell if I was gonna let this pass me by… im back working with the same guy who offered me the Malaysian job… the company we were with is apparently crumbling in Malaysia.. and to think I’d only lasted bout a year if I took that job… I’ve been killing myself for nothing…
    Thru a series of events we’re reunited.. in a new company… and we’re bigger and stronger… I think this is the one… I have the opportunity to shine again…
    Work is my biggest priority now… in between meetings and traveling to the west.. I’ve practically no time for anything else…. Im lucky if I get to visit the orchard club twice a week…. Moving closer to orchard seems like a joke now… cause I hardly ever venture into orchard now… I miss orchard so much… hilarious I know… the west is so different… and it takes me 45 minutes to get there…. But you gotta do..what you gotta do to shine… “you’ll never know if you don’t go… you’ll never shine if don’t glow”

    Paradoxicalthoughts will still be active… but posts will be pretty scarce for now… my apologies to my frequent readers… but fret not…
    After many long nights and lotsa hard work… im proud to announce
    drastikfantastik

    Officially launched yesterday…. drastikfantastik is a collaboration between yours truly and niki-t…. its something like klue.com from the eyes of two gila expats living and socializing in Singapore… we’ll be highlighting events.. food.. and places…

    Do update your bookmarks… links.. and drop us an email if you have something interesting in singapore for us to review…. Pro bono of course..

    wet dreams..
    do come true..



    holy mother of.... i've been waiting for this.. seems like forever.. but it will officially be available on july 11.... mark your calenders geeks...
    i've always liked the i-phone 1.0.. but i knew apple will definitely release a better version.. such has been case with the ipod...
    the best part is.. the freakin price..!! the i-phone 2.0 is only 199usd for the 8gb model... holy smokes.. thats less than 300sgd!! tears of joy baby.. tears of joy...

    but ya know.. the i-phone isnt all perfection yet.. there's no mms capability... there's no copy & paste option.. there's no video recording!..there's no voice command.. and bluetooth flexibility is shit...

    but screw those right.. hell if im gonna complain for 199usd! after all.. i use my o2atom only for calls.. sms.. and wifi... i dont even need freakin 3g.. the i-phone 2.0 provides me with everything i use on a daily basis plus gps to booth.. sweetness!

    here's hoping singtel doesnt mark up the price too much.. if not i'll just have to get it posted from the states..

    singing.. food..
    liquor..and cakes...
    you want more..??



    was staring out the kitchen window... couldnt help but notice this beautiful thingy in the sky... i just had to grab the cammy... it was just after the rain.. if i recall right... looking at it.. i just felt so warm... it was like a breath of fresh air.. something like a sense of assurance.. very significant i felt.. for me anyway... cause i had just accepted an offer from another company.. and was waiting to throw my resignation in the face of this goddamn cancer of a company im with now... like phew! finally.. finally... i feel alive.. i feel free... its a new start.. and looking at that sky.. i couldnt help but smile..

    insane..insane april and may... we we're told that our landlord wants to sell the apartment.. so we had a month to move out.. it was stated in the contract.. that we'd only be given a month... something us wankers failed to notice... shifting places isnt always easy... finding a place and attending open houses is another pain in the ass.. i somehow managed to skip all that... the cat did all the work.. and now we've signed up for a 4+1 with a 16 or 17th floor view.. i cant be sure cause i havent visited the unit.. but we've signed for it and stuff.. one month's salary is gone on the deposit and agents fees.. which totally sucks monsters balls... i'll have to live of my savings... while trying to remove as little as possible from the savings pool... i know.. i cant help it.. it ended up a lil over budget.. we cant help it.. the first month is always the blow to the nut sack... but we need a place.. i've been told its nice.. 17 or so floor view.. balcony even... and only 4 stops from orchard.... thats settled for now...
    packing... god! packing... i've got time to start.. but i just cant get to doing it... procrastination rules... the men of the rekhraj family...
    half my wardrobe is filled.. filled.. i tell it you.. with stuff i never wear.. stuff i've worn a couple of times.. there are even some with the bloody tags still on them!.... still on them!! for them im dead serious bout setting up an e-bay account.. and selling them off.. wouldnt you pay $15 for almost new gap..aeropostale..a&f.. st john's bay stuff? i wonder how i managed to wear stuff that seem so big for me now.. i couldnt have lost that much weight.. weirdness...

    thats mami emily getting the kids drunk... she was serving up some wicked ass fruit liquor.. man that cognac killed it.. it was so strong.. i didnt even bother opening that bottle of johnny red..
    it was em's birthday yesterday... we crashed her place... it was really good... meeting up with everyone.. it was just us the old nike posse.. and some other friends.. some have left.. some are leaving... some are gonna leave... i hate it but the conversation always centers round bitching bout work and how much we miss each other.. it's always awesome being with good company.. em's like a mother.. and just like my mom...she's always trying to hook me up with someone...

    the food was oh so awesome.. for god's sake it was home cooked.. and it was pinoy.. read: home cooked pinoy food! i should smack myself for not taking better pics.. i could have taken individual macro shots.. but no... i just dug in... home cooked pinoy food + starving paradoxx.. aint an excuse enough.. then i dont know what is...
    from top left: noodle thingy.. fruit salad.. which niki kept insisting was dessert.. it was sweet yeah but went really well with rice.. bbq chicken wings.. kare-kare.. and menudo...
    the kare-kare was this realy fatty pieces of pork.. and really bonny.. seriously really boney meat turns me off.. i dont mind fat but there has to be meat as well.. the kare-kare was just fat and bones! but the gravy was peanuty-licious! i feel like having some kare-kare gravy right now! the menudo's my favourite... oh my god... so good.. tomato based with lean pork.. carrots i think.. and some liver.. i wasnt expecting the liver.. but thank god it was in tiny cuts.. so it didnt really kill me.. menudo's the bomb.. you could totally have it over pasta...

    em had the honor or having two cakes...

    but ofcourse.. whats a pinoy party without karaoke.. i seriously wasnt expecting that.. but what was i thinking.. my mind was too clouded by the food i reckon... i seriously didnt wanna make an ass of myself.. i wasnt even half way blissful yet.. read: intoxicated... i didnt want them to go like.. oi! get that putang-ina bombay off the mic....!!! but everyone was singing mellow.. mellow songs... like whats up with that... so i had to step up and rock elvis's hound dog... im good as elvis.. but the karaoke machine totally hated me.. 10 out of 100... *shakes head* at least i stepped u.. :p we rocked out to kokomo after that... thanks to niki.. unbelievable.. most of us werent even intoxicated yet....

    He was turned to steel
    In the great magnetic field
    When he traveled time
    For the future of mankind

    Now the time is here
    For Iron Man to spread fear
    Vengeance from the grave
    Kills the people he once saved..... thats ozzy's version...

    alright... i was proven wrong... iron man did rock!....
    i had hesitations cause i dont like stuff with too much cgi... and i never really fancied robert downey jr....

    but hell yea.. iron man was awesome... the cgi was perfectly fine..the ending could have been a lil better though.. but still it aint too shabby.. and downey dude... loving that french beard....!

    i give it a 7/10.... im being bias.. so sod off.. only cause street kings is still my movie of the year...

    next on the list is speed racer.. (go! speed racer.. go!) i've come to accept the amount of cgi in the movie... but im still not sure bout seeing rain on the big screen... biasness i know... again.. sod off!

    Currently Listening To: Mercy - Duffy
    Currently Feeling: blur-ish...
