The Facebook Freaks Club

Here's why I think, no, why I know I need Facebook therapy. Allow me to list you the reasons as to why I say that.

Firstly, I muck around Facebook so much in a day that I get an average of 60-70 notifications a day.

Secondly, I'm so obsessed with the Zombies app that so far I have managed to infect 39 chumps and recruit them into my zombie army, bite 245 times and accumulate a whooping 1,090 fighting points. That brings my total Zombie points to 3,500 (including other bites by my army) as of October 11, 12:13am. My rank attained is Stealth Zombie.

Compare this to the No. 2 zombie in my entire Zombie Friends list who only has an army of 16 zombies, 2218 zombie points and holds a rank of Zombie Mogul.

Thirdly, I have been spending so much time on My Fab Bag, which is rather evidently a female-oriented application, that I have managed to increase my spending limit to $1,258,330 in a remarkably short span of time.

Fourthly, I meticulously sonic boom,, toilet-paper, serenade, sucker-punch, my friends such that I have managed to attain the level of Rockstar for my SuperPoke! app. For reference sake, this level allows me three new actions: to motorboat, hook up with and yack on friends.

This list could go on and on, but I need more time to go back and Facebook. But this one is pretty bad. Fifthly, I am so caught up with my (fluff)Friends app that I have decided to draw up a table which completely and comprehensively lists my pet's food preferences. Below you can find a table which documents each food item and the subsequent food reaction and fph increment.

So please refer to this table should you decided to feed Kaeley, and please send him something delicious and savory your way. Thanks!

Purple Hues

A week before Daph left back for London, she bequeathed me this lovely gift: a huge acrylic painting of an impression of London's Millennium Bridge (right). It was a complete surprise for me, and I had no idea she was working on it for the past week.

Nevertheless to say, I was incredibly touched, grateful and impressed all at the same time. I've always found Daph's artistic talent to be pretty sexy, but to receive something like that was really heartwarming. I can't remember the last time I received something so heartfelt and sincere.

Anyway, when I did go over to London, I insisted we checked out the Millennium Bridge for my own self. Daph almost didn't want to go, because we were tired out from all the walking and shopping earlier, and to get there we would have to take the (very crowded) bus.

We dropped off, walked past the very beautiful St Paul's Cathedral, pass the courtyard and down Godliman St., before reaching the junction at Upper Thames Street. To my dismay, I actually saw that the wide pathway to the Millennium Bridge was actually cordoned off, with plenty of police and firefighters in the cordoned area.

Adamantly refusing to give up, I waited around the edge of the cordon (I think Daph was getting slightly impatient by then!) and I caught news that someone apparently attempted to commit suicide from the bridge. This, apparently, isn't anything too new, considering that it has happened before (see here).

But, as luck would have it, they cleared the area not long after, removed the cordon tape and we were on our way! On the other side of the bridge, I just had to take a photo for comparison's sake. Here's a photo of the painting on the left, and what it really looks like in real life.

Pretty surreal, isn't it? I know it definitely was for me! For a slightly larger resolution of the painting, click here.

Anyway, we visited the Tate Mordern for half an hour as it was about to close soon. Daph wanted to show me this particular Monet painting, but being her usual blur self she couldn't remember at which part of the museum was it located at.

I did, however, manage to catch some really profound yet minimalistic works of visual art which I know will forever remain in the realms beyond my understanding!

Prelude to the Bench

Photo-snapping on our little detour from Oxford Circus to check out the Millennium Bridge and the Tate Modern. We almost got lost on the way, but my excellent map reading skills saved the day. Haha!

I remember how we were in a bookstore on Oxford and we were thumbing through a London city guide when we saw the Tate Modern featured in the guide. Almost at once we just put the book back, looked at each other and headed off!

Thumb War

Here's something to chase the Monday blues away. Well, at least I know I need something to fix mine. It's been a horrid day so far to start the entire week, with an endless stream of problems bugging my ass up. Not fun!

Fatigued Wishes

I need a holiday too, just to add on. A sleeping holiday where I do nothing but sleep. Preferably, a sleep-on-couch holiday on a 7th floor apartment back on Oxford Circus.

Ok, so I'm just too specifically demanding!

Lost Time

Life has been unbelievably busy, hectic and tiring! I haven't really been sleeping properly ever since I came back from London, and most of the time I'm doing 5am - 8am nights of sleeping and catching up mostly at work or negating the fatigue with Red Bull.

The past two weeks did have some highlights though, ranging from two wedding fairs over two consecutive weekends, checking out the new club Lunar, trying out with LBB at China One and such.

Now here's a tacky photo taken with Kewei at last week's wedding fair at Raffles Hotel:

Too much weddings in our heads, right now. I just did two over the weekend as well, one at CHIJMES and another at Fullerton Hotel.

Once again, do check out my (wedding) band's blog here for plenty of wedding-related stuff, ranging from anecdotal advice to summarily-written recollections of all the weddings that we have done.

For those who have been so nice as to faithfully check back on my blog, apologies for the dearth of updates as I have been really busy at work as well as spending way too much time on Facebook. I think this is outrageously evident, going from the fact that all more friends and colleagues are already probably tired of my endless, incessant yakking about anything Facebook-related.

My Xbox 360 gets replaced only the 16th of this month, and I can't help but to start getting really impatient. I'm sorely behind on hands-on time for Halo 3, and it doesn't help that I can't wait to pick a copy of Stranglehold of the shelf and give it a try too.

In other Katie Leung-obsessed news, she has just recently been featured in Leo Ku's latest MV for his new song, 愛回家. This MV was filmed in London, and isn't the best in terms of scripting and cinematography for sure, but Katie Leung saves it. Just by being in it. By the way, I'm not biased in any way whatsoever!

Here's the MV for your viewing pleasure.



Yes, yes, most impressive isn't it. Dick Lee wrote the music for this song, by the way. Not too bad at all!

Ok, back to moping about the non-functionality of my Xbox 360. Allow me to quench my gaming thirst with the Zombies app on Facebook!
