Fenders back on!

Photobucket
It's not perfect, far from it, but what the heck it looks good as long as you don't stick your nose near it :p

Yea, I should bend those handlebars more, but Dad has already bent them as much as possible, any more and they'll probably snap, so let's hope I can get a pair of decent original ones for a reasonable price off the net!

House got some new paint!

Photobucket
We painted the side of the house a bit since last week! It's not done yet, and it should look better if we'd gone with a light brown instead of the buttery colour it is now, but the house looks more cheerful now, so it's ok I guess :)

Some stuff I got lately

Photobucket
1/64 Daihatsu Midget from Ying!

Photobucket
I've always had a soft spot for this car, having fond memories of one or two running around my old home selling meat and stuff!

The small box is pretty awesome with the 60s movie poster on it!

Photobucket
Miniature Guinness bottle collection from Uncle Kim Kooi! Super nice with and must be a bit rare with it being one of 10000 sets!

Photobucket
Finally bought a new wallet today! It comes in a nice mooncake box! I think it probably cost a bit too much for so little leather, but I'm sold!

Photobucket
What sold me. Yea, doesn't take much :D

This picture is an example of how serious you should be when sampling your Starbucks beverage, see, Theng is so serious! Must learn!

Photobucket
This is the contrast between large and small eyes.

Friday BBQ

Was a last minute thing, Mom & Dad couldn't buy enough food so they kept company little. Was pretty swell though, also had some fun taking pics for my cousin and bugging the kids at play :) Photobucket
Not a bad way to spend a Friday night :)

090909

Haha, it was fun!

I took a day off work today to witness Wennice's marriage registration with 40+ other couples at Chin Woo Hall, managed to con Bou and Jessie to go along! I'm kinda glad I conned them into coming because that meant I got a ride to the hall and need not hunt for parking! Met Wennice's boyfriend, Wai, husband as of now, for the first time after hearing of him for years, nice dude just as I'd always thought he is! The whole marriage event thingy was funny; I saw couples come in elaborate garbs, in normal wedding attire, some a bit more casual like they were dressed for dinner at a nice place, and the most normal looking couple in their everyday clothes, they could have just came from work after lunch for all I know! Pretty interesting, it's my first time attending such an event, but I managed to fall asleep twice while the couples were signing the papers nonetheless :D

After the ceremony ended at about 3pm, me, Yen, Ivan, & Bou returned to the office for the party, too bad Jessie didn't apply for leave and join us! Fanny's already arrived when Bou and me got back to the office after buying soft drinks, as well as lots of other people! The afternoon was super, so many friends and relatives gathered, good food, drinks, it's a happy afternoon!

Come evening, I rushed home with Sis to take a bath, sent her back to the office, and off I went to dinner with Ivan & Wennice's family at SLHF! Bou arrived with Yen and Jessie a bit later!

When dinner was done it's off to yumcha at Old Town in Gunung Rapat, did some sightseeing around the neighbourhood too before that because Ivan and I couldn't agree on the location of Ye Huai's home; in the end it turned out I was right!!

This afternoon, I was a bit worried about breaking out two friend's little secret. I mean, he's always been frank with me, but it totally caught me off guard when he lied twice to me, it just sort of occurred to me that it's really not typical of him to be this way at all. The other one is just always bashful but unsuspectingly truthful to me. I felt a bit bad exposing and making fun of them the whole day (ok la, for the most part I was enjoying it, he's had it coming a long time k). Tonight though, they are so much more themselves again after the secret's out, probably immune already after being made the butt of jokes for the whole day. Secret's out, ain't no need to hide anymore right? I'm sorry I'm kepoh, but don't your hearts feel lighter with nothing to hide? I'm happy for them, let's see how this goes :D

Haha yea, sooo, this supposedly hollowly meaningful date has been a memorable one for me, good times!

Z50M's new seat!

Honda Z50M
It's done! I wish it could look lower, but this is as low as I can get it to be using the original seat hinges! I'm still contemplating whether I should make shorter hinges, because, as nice as they'll look, I can only make it lower by slightly more than an inch before the seat pan hits the hinge lock, and at that height, the seat practically doesn't fold down much anymore, maybe less than an inch, so it's gonna beat the purpose of the hinge in the first place :P

Honda Z50M
The seat cover material I just chose from one of the many generic types at the upholstery shop, had the GSX 110's seat wrapped in the same stuff. I'd wanted it to have a tartan pattern on top like the original seat, but the material is so hard to find, checkers, stripes, maybe yea, but tartan or plaid, nope no luck, so I'll just settle with this for now. I like the texture of this material, but tartan just shouts bonus style points! I don't care, I'm still keeping an eye out for the tartan material, and when I do find it, I'm probably gonna make another seat, maybe do away with collapsible seat hinges and have it fixed dead and low, should be nice :) Now, maybe I start messing with the handlebars? ^^

Thank you

.. to the girl at the clothing store who remembered me and let me change the unsuitable pair of jeans I'd bought on a whim with a nicer pair, even when I couldn't produce the receipt!

.. to my family and everybody in the past 2 weeks for everything related to my birthday!

.. to Trish my sis, my birthday is wayyyyy over, you really need not get me another cake, so thanks again!

.. to Mr Jasz for treating me to lunch. Fark la next time tell me if you're full and don't feel like eating, I wasn't hungry either, why both want to purposely go out to stuff ourselves silly and suffer?! Next time give ang pau can ady, no need lunch :D

.. to all my close friends for celebrating with me too, seriously, I enjoyed the company, and the fact that there isn't another cake for me to stuff down that day! Someday I will not get negative points anymore when playing snooker! I will not let Bou pocket all the balls anymore!

.. to Uncle Mun who made a new seat pan for me after finding out the first one is unsuitable, all because I messed up with the measurements and was vague about how I'd wanted it to be, and refusing to take extra pay, as usual.

.. to Uncle Wai who made me a new seat bracket promptly (not exactly easy work), reinforcing the seat pan, lending me his tools and workspace, all for almost nothing.

.. to boss for the cake (surprised the hell out of me) and the raise (another week, another surprise)! On the other hand, I feel really bad for slacking off at work, I really do, I'll slack off less from now on and make myself a little bit more worth the pay!

.. to Yen and everybody who has been putting off with my temper and randomness lately. I know I'm being weird, I wish I weren't so but as luck would have it my self control muscles are way fatigued lately.

.. to whoever's reading this! You're really patient hor? All this same random stuff and same-looking pics of the same bike from the same angle every week and you're still here :D

Thank you everybody, at times, you all make me wonder what I'd done to deserve all this kindness. I will keep my temper and tongue in check, I will be nice. You all remind me of this everyday.

Rempit wannabes...

They know how to pop wheelies and think they're invincible. As if almost running into a car because he was too busy showing me up popping a wheelie, kid thinks it's a good idea to come back at me from the opposite and go into my lane, he probably did not think for one second I'd actually try to run him in though. Hope he pissed his pants a bit. If he thinks that just because I spent lotsa effort on the Z50M and wouldn't risk damaging it, think again. He doesn't know me.

Spit at me, one more time. I don't care if you're the same age as my sister. I don't care if you and I live in the same neighbourhood. I will mess you up so so very bad your parents wouldn't recognize you anymore when I drag your skinny ass home. You, that fat ass friend of yours and the rest of the bunch of barbarians on bikes. It's hard keeping my temper down once it is up, do not tempt me. You don't know me. I don't even know myself anymore when I'm angry.

I just don't want to disappoint anybody with my temper anymore, that's all.
