BEWARE! Hidden Cameras!

Once upon a winter time, I was visiting Taipei again on a business trip. You should always fly with China Airlines which has lowest fares and their Oloong Tea on board is nice! One greedy Datuk's stupid chauffeur picked us up on arrival and checked us into a sleazy Motel in Tao Yuan which is nearby to Taipei.
Many Chinese newspapers in Taipei often reported about Taiwanese prominent politicians or celebrities being framed and blackmailed after being caught for having affairs in secret motels. I was wondering how they could snap the photos catching them red handed?? Is it a Chua Soi Lek style of blurry images? No, there in Taiwan, it's crystal clear images in hi-res format!

This was the popular love nest motel in Tao Yuan. Remember the name & jot down as I will remove this photo soon!

The rooms are upstairs and you will be given a remote control to park your vehicle in the total privacy of a single garage space. So canggih and hi-tech! It was damn freaking cold that night and …

Crystals Galore

I was born with this hyper sensitive senses towards the frequency that surrounds me. Over the years, I read up books and got guidance from spiritualists who explained what I have been 'seeing' and feeling those presence of hi-lo spirits, wandering ghosts and good/bad frequency. It was scary when I had no idea of those unknown dimensions. Today, I am more relaxed and contented with my life. We just need to have good energy all the time! You can even inhale good energy in those good feng shui areas where many posh homes are built. Wealthy friends have rich and bright aura which emits wealth frequencies too. Go and rub shoulders with them is better than hanging out with bad luck fellas, as all our grandmas had advised so.

Good crystals are really powerful and can definitely do wonders. Their magical usage has been discovered since thousands of years ago in many countries. The past China's smart emperors knew that good jades could provide positive energy even for the spirits, t…

Live Meaningfully

Many friends often asked me what's merits and how to make merits?? The dictionary says - Spiritual credit held to be earned by performance of righteous acts and to ensure future benefits. There are many ways to make merits. Having kind thoughts and heart is also making merits, not to mention doing charity and prayers. 
Everyone of us are using our merits or karma to trade with each other. This man has high merits and he's your senior superior at work. The one with the highest merits is your CEO and employer, the examples go on. One needs merits to live, survive and even the ability to speak, have meals or own the clothes on his body. Without them, we might become poor hungry beggars. Even a popular movie star, singer or politicians need merits to have supporters. When finished, they often fell in disgrace unless they knew how to keep making them like Li Ka Shing, Oprah Winfrey, Brad Pitt, Bill Gates, Tom Cruise and many others!
I don't consider myself wealthy at all but I co…

Black Food

I saw a packet of black food in the pantry and had to ask its owner 1001 questions. Finally Jammy offered me a bite. I was reluctant but I like to try anything under the sun. At least I can blog and bitch about it here.
This is Denn, another colleague eating Jammy's bread. So yum yum!

On the label, is written Bamboo Charcoal Sandwich and it was so bloody Blaaaacccckkk! It reminds me of those black kampong chicken or stray pariah dogs.

See! It's really black like shit and it contains Bamboo, Charcoal and flour etc. I nibbled it bit by bit like a mouse and finally dipped into my hot nescafe. It was heavenly nice and unusual. Costs only RM3.80 and you can get it from Pavilion's Lavender Bakery. I will buy them soon. Have you ever eaten something so black?

Canine Treadmill

The dog lovers in Bangkok would invest over RM1K to buy a special treadmill for their dogs to run indoors. Outside is rather polluted with traffic congestion and lack of proper space. They would sip beer and watch TV shows while their canines ran on the gym equipment. I won't be surprised there will be pet animal gymnasiums in Bangkok someday.
They often pampered their poodles and chihuahuas in finest canine attire complete with perfume sprays. OMG! It would be nice to be dogs in Bangkok with such loving masters!

I never kept dogs but I was bitten by countless of neighborhood dogs when I was a kid. I was being chased and bitten by Alsatian, Dalmatian, Bulldog, Doberman, A Shaggy Mop Looking dog and several pariah dogs! Each time the canines sank their teeth onto my bums, my dad would take me for rabies jabs at the hospitals. Wah! I have had so many injections and I guess I have the side effects today as I am so crazeee...
I think I got stitched by the doctors once but I couldn't …

Jumbo Tales

When I was a child, I always got excited on seeing the elephants in all over Thailand. It was part of my growing up years to see them as also part of Thai culture. The Thais love these big mammals so much and would shower their love & attention to them. Usually the elephant sanctuaries are located in remote areas like Surin, Ayutthaya, Chiengrai and others. Most of the owners are hill tribe folks apart from NGOs.

A clumsy elephant got stuck in the mud, fell down & laid there for 6 days! Finally a bulldozer had to find its way there to lift up this Jumbo. It was still alive, of course.

Come every April, the Thais would decorate these elephants and bring them to participate in their annual Songkran Water Festival. These elephants provide good blast & sprays of water. So fun! I avoided the sprays as I thought its trunk might have lots of mucous in it!

The Thais even provide open-air theatre for these elephants to watch! Of course, they watched romantic elephant movies!

They belie…

My Traveling Habits

When I visited any foreign country be it Bangkok, Taipei or NYC, I must try to visit their 7-Elevens for sure. The calling is so strong that I must take a peek at their local outlets as if you could see their whole country inside 1 store. Being in the creative industry, I enjoy seeing their packaging's colours, designs and layout blah blah... I remembered spending a few hours holed up inside the 7-Eleven store in Bangkok, having a chat, drink and instant noodle supper as well. Those who sat with me just freaked out & screamed at my crazy interest.
I went to Taiwan several times and once had a Datuk's chauffeur drive me from the north tip city of Keeliung, to down south at Kaoshiung city, passing through Taipei, Tainan and Taichung. Wow! I had never seen so many 7-Elevens everywhere in my life!! 

Sometimes there were two 7-eleven outlets facing each other on the same street in Taiwan! I learnt that the Taiwanese patronize these outlets for all their daily needs which also pro…

Death Comes Without Notice

Recently the latest Feminine magazine reported the tragic accident where an entertainment hostess & TV actress was killed. I was so damn shocked to my spine for days as I personally knew her very well. She was the DJ for RTM's Radio 5 and a freelancer who aspired to be a famous artiste in Malaysia. It was her big dream and she worked hard for it. 
When Ai Fang lost her job at RTM, we helped her get hired by a prominent Datuk friend to become an editor. We provided her a place in my own private office for free as she complained that she did not wish to travel daily to Klang.

This magazine company felt so bad that she went on a road show with them and got killed on their way back to KL in August. So much coverage of her accident was given in Sin Chew, China Press and even the internet sites in China! I was shocked as she was still so young with promising future. I broke the tragic news to common friends in my circle. They gave me BIGGER SHOCKS with their reactions. One replied &qu…

My Favourite Pancake

This has been my favourite since I was 7 years old. The Indian man would cart his stall into our school to sell and we would crowd around him doing his business. He wore a shirt and Indian Doti cloth. In between he used to rub his cloth in the groin after sprinkle nuts and sugar. We were so innocent and ate his dicked pancake so YUMMY! If he did that again today, I will place his banana into the pancake and bake!

The Hokkiens call it "Ban Chang Kueh" in the northern states. 

I love them hot with butter and it's so heavenly fragrant. You like them too?

Look! He's only a small boy selling! He is only 10 years old and working hard to earn for his coming Hari Raya. The sight of his size actually attracted me from miles away outside Ampang Point.

He is so cool and confident with appreciative smiles. He really made my day! I will stop complaining that my job in the office comfort is tough. Hope you will appreciate your jobs at this time when the country's economy is gloomy…

Good Pillow Wanted

I am a 6 footer guy with broad shoulders and you thought it was nice. I have a lifetime problem when I went anywhere to sleep, away from my own bed. I often suffer from stiff neck and shoulder cramps due to the soft and flat pillows! I always bitched the hotels to give me 3 pillows so that it could support my neck when I slept sideways. The 3rd pillow is for me to place in between my legs. My didi also need to breathe.

When my neck and shoulders ached, my migraine would follow up soon. Then my mood gets cranky like a whore having period pains!  Stay away from me!

I respect the inventor who created this ancient Chinese porcelain pillow. Once I bought an antique porcelain pillow for a song and it dated back to the Ming Dynasty. It was so shiok to sleep on and supported my neck well. I had lots of weird dreams of myself being a Eunuch or a concubine. Never ever sleep on such pillows again! No wonder many friends complained that they often had bad dreams while sleeping in hotels. We share t…
