libraries gave us power

12 years in waiting. but admittedly the show was a wee bit muted. or possibly the audience around me were. or was it just sarip who just stood there lone rangerly, with a touristy vcam.

so naturally, sarip felt weird just like that with the gadget at hand. thus the out of focus zoom. meh.

still, singing to a design for life after years and years of emomotion did render some solace to sarip. it’s like whoa. he almost shed a tear. yes, it was that big of a deal.

anyway, the setlist as follows:-

Motorcycle Emptiness
Autumnsong
La Tristesse Durera
Faster
You Stole The Sun From My Heart
Everything Must Go
Ocean Spray
Masses Against The Classes
You Love Us
Pennyroyal Tea
Send Away The Tigers
A Design For Life
Small Black Flowers That Grow In The Sky (Acoustic)
The Everlasting (Acoustic)
Your Love Alone Is Not Enough
Umbrella
1985
Little Baby Nothing
Motown Junk
If You Tolerate This Your Children Will Be Next

batamised

a last minute getaway. we need to get away, even for awhile. we doubt muslim radicals will invade batam. heh. unless the old stigma of old pakciks yang radical lain if you may assume.

anyway, truth to be known, sarip never stepped on batam. so this was something new. eventhough. we stayed put at batam view beach resort. ok place, even ok price. but the villas were somehow all fully booked. or was it sarip’s too stingy to pay out extra dosh?

oh well, the spa was nice, even though ain was at the usual self doing the kepoing business gossip mengosip with “the therapist” [HAH!]. and that got scalded by steaming fierce boiling water at the sauna. and also closing the door without realising the key was still inside. and then put pepper instead of salt on the pineapple. apa nak jadi pun sarip tak tahu. haha.

but still, ok lah this place for a short getaway. quiet, easy to come, food’s nice [really] and everyone’s a chirpy bunch.

more pixies here as usual.

burning down the house when the stars are aligned

THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS THIS IS MADNESS. THIS IS MADNESS!

escalating

question: is it just me or are the escalators at the mrt stations putting on a strike ala the bangkok riots? novena, hougang, amk! 3 “spoilt” escalators on the same day? my, oh my.

but what the hell, sigur ros’ festival is one hell of a kicking-feeling-mengfeeling-syiok-sendiri-jerawat-sampai-bleh-pecah-type of orgasm. really.

but what is more tantalizing is the fact that this guy is performing again this monday. I REPEAT. THIS FUCKEN MONDAY.

NAHBEH. really lah, sarip’s pocketful of money no more soon.

but it’s JENS ANAK WAK LEKMAN playing woik! the one yang you sanggup gi sorang sorang gi KL then balik with a group of people who sarip felt he macam bikin suasana yang tegang for them.

so…

bus-ty


via tomorrow.

astaghfirullah – trust us mats to put everything into context and with the minah to keep asking the whys.

heh.

but why stop the fight, when we can watch in delight! never, ever stop a catfight! meeoooowrrrr.

since this bus stops at that amk bus stop near the mrt, sarip would like to give his 2 cents of keeping it real.

CAN THE PASSENGERS WHO ARE STOPPING AT SERANGOON NORTH, CAN YOU PLEASE OPEN UP THE EFFING MIND OF YOURS AND BE CONSIDERATE BY AT LEAST MOVING UP TO THE TOP DECK AND NOT EVERYONE OF YOU FLOGGED ON THE BOTTOM DECK JUST BECAUSE YOU ARE EFFING LAZY TO CLIMB THE STEPS AND THUS CREATES US PEOPLE WHO LIVE BEYOND THAT STOP AND CANNOT GET ONTO THE BUS?

ok there.

$2

At the close of the latest tender on Wednesday, COE premium for cars up to 1,600cc – the mainstay of car buyers – closed at an unprecedented $2.

now it is really tempting on hearing news like these.

and last sarip checked, dbs is looking to adjustments to its home loan package. refinance can be done and the interest hike is dropping!

who says when times are bad, it is realllly bad? meh.
