    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....
