Shopping dilemma episode 2.

What a coincidence! When I thought of this post I didn't know I actually started my chocoholic blog with the same subject... SHOPPING.

In Episode 1, Miss Chocoholic faces dilemma in deciding what gift to buy for a friend's birthday and it made her plunged into desperation of finding a solution to this matter that had been troubling her for so long. She found the solution! Can she apply it to buying, well...not gifts this time, clothes... for herself?

Now, in Episode 2, Miss Chocoholic is again faced with a dilemma in deciding what clothes to buy for new year, and again, the history repeats itself...she's plunged into desperation of finding a right balance between her scarce financial resources and her love for several pieces of fashion breakthrough.

As she went window shopping with two of her pals in Gurney Plaza, concluding to herself that she will not get any new year clothes for 2006 because her pocket's sinking at the rate of 6,000 mph and she has many relatively new clothes which she can wear for new year, she came across creations so wonderful and beautiful that she found hard to resist.

So, she has changed her mind now and ditched her 'not-buying-any-clothes' idea and replaced it with 'maybe-I'll-just-get-a few'. (talk about failure of self-control!)

In her list now there are Baleno 3 quarter pants at RM89.90, PDI 3 quarter pants at RM79.00, this beautiful red floral multifunction dress at RM 189.00 (ahh..Miss Chocoholic faints *thud*), FOS 3 quarter pants at RM 53.90, FOS tee written "Two bfs are better than one" at the front / "Too cool for school" at RM 30.00 (rounded up figure) and a spagheti top at FOS at RM 19.90.

Oh, how desperate Miss Chocoholic is now!

After much pondering and head-cracking mental gymnastics exercises, Miss Chocoholic.... is left without a solution. Instead, as she always did, she has now concluded that since it is so difficult to come to a decision on what to buy with her meagre funds, simply don't buy any! Problem solved! Yeah!!

This could be a new economic formula ;)

Happy 2006!!

Oh yeah, by the way, purple is the "in" colour now. So dig up all your purple stuff and wear them...or use them!!


Thoughtful Lil' Friend.

It is nice to know that in this sad sad world, in this dull dull life, there is still people around me that is so thoughtful.

When I was reading the TIME magazine in th library, trying very hard to find at least one example of current events which I can use as an example in my Jurisprudence assignment (but found none), Alex Wong a.k.a. Chung Heng ( I think that is how his named is spelled, Alex sorry if I'm wrong!), approached me and asked how I was doing. He then wished me Merry Christmas and said sorry for not sending me a Christmas e-card, but only managed to give me a testimonial on friendster which I regrettably deleted. I could only say thank you to him for the testimonial. Oh, I felt sooooooooooooo darn BAD!!

He actually took the courage to approach me and apologized for something which does not require apology?!

It was so thoughtful of him. Many students find him weird and bullied him in college, he still tried his best to make friends and share his thoughts and happennings in life with me, and other people in IPG.

Although it was 2 days after Christmas, I considered this a Christmas gift that I truly appreciate :)


Eaten alive

IPG Cafeteria, which is so pathetic that it is actually nothing like a cafeteria, is the citadel for blood-suckers. Yeah, and I mean it literally blood-suckers!

As I was enjoying my breakfast this morning, cherishing every bite of the nasi goreng and savoruing every bit of the telur mata kerbau, I was attacked by a full-blown offensive launched by these blood-suckers. It was as though they were on Operation Desert Storm!

Only ten minutes...these blood-suckers made me dance, scratch and cry like a baby whose mother refused to give her the candy she wants. Unfortunately, nobody came to rescue me from this attack.

I was defeated. I was eaten alive by these blood-suckers.

Their victory is evident on my limbs. And my defeat will remind forever more that I hate.... mosquitoes!!

Blood-suckers!! 24 bites and the lumps are even in a pattern...hmmm, looks like a big J on my calve. Gtg...time to scratch!



Usually, when a beggar holds out his or her hand to beg, the beggar will get pecuniary donations (actually, some people don't donate. They give them just a few pennies to rid off the irritating beggar) or fiery donations (this happens when they either get shoo-ed off or rude remarks from people who don't give them anything).

But something funny and rather unusual happened two days ago.

When I was sitting comfortably on the bus heading back to my hometown waiting for the bus to start the journey, a beggar came on the bus and held out a crumpled paper cup to each of the passenger on the bus, speaking softly with the pitiful tone in his voice, asking us to give him some money and have pity on him.

Seriously, why should we pity them if they do not have pity on themselves?
But this was not what I thought of lar of course!

When he held out the cup to me and looked at me, I just stared back. I know it's rude but... I can't help wondering what's really going on in his mind!

So, I was thinking, I have a 5 dollar note and a few 1 dollar notes in my pocket, but I was wearing a really tight jeans (yeah, I put on weight, arrghh!!) and it would be so difficult to get the 1 dollar note out of my pocket with all the bags on my lap.

I just kept staring into his eyes...

And then...

I stretched my hand into one of the bags on my lap and searched hard for a packet... while I was doing this the beggar thought I won't give him anything and turned to the passenger behind me to beg for money.

Just as he turned.. I held out my hand to him, saying :"Nah, hor lu (give you in hokkien)."

He turned back and looked stunned!

I was holding out a Tiger biscuit to him :P

I thought he needed food maore than money at that time. Haha. Well, what happened next? He hesitated at first, but I continued holding out the biscuit to him and he took it eventually. When he left the bus, I saw him holding that piece of Tiger biscuit :)

The passenger next to me laughed at me. Oh well...who cares? I became a biscuit volunteer...biscuiteer lim sin yee hahaha.
