Welcome to my Cheeserland!
It’s time to bid farewell to my beloved “Diary-hood”, and say hello to the promising “blog-dom”.
I’ve been wanting to cheese a blog for so long. But i’ve also been so cheesily slacking so much so i gave myself excuses *for* not having time to blog. It was like “What? I am reeeealy bee-see (read: lay-see) with all my assignments, presentations, reports, group work, projects, cheesa cheesa cheesa…”.
Maybe 09/09 sounds like an auspicious day and here i am to cheesilize my 1st Blog ever.
What happened today? I have always envied the creative writing skills of my best college buds, Chingy and Michi.
I felt so paiseh majoring in journalism at a self-appointed University College of Creative (read: cheesily crappy) Technology (i always wonder if they used their “advanced technology” just to fry their lame chicken wings).
Hmm, why do people still fall prey to their black magic (of advertising)? Almost everyone here who got cheesed-up before has already spread the warning so widely to all aspiring LUCTians.
Okay, maybe the students here are so evil that they want *others to be a part of their life of crappiness together so that they feel less crappy… Or maybe those who fell prey to the “black magic” really should stay here to be enlightened when they go for advetising lectures, hence learn “how advertising works” and “how dreadfully effective ads are” or any other topic of the like.
And then when they finally realize how powerful advertising is, they will be more enthusiatic to acquire the knowledge so that they can “black magic” other people in the future. What a fantastic vicious circle.
Hmm, where was i? Oh ya, Chingy and Michi. It’s always a pleasant experience to read their blogs cuz u never know how loud you will laugh.
Speaking of which, Her Royal Vulgarness aka Chingy has mentioned this word “lifeless”, which was described upon her by somebody. How lifeless can life be?
Just what exactly does it mean by “lifeless”? Is it repeating the same routine everyday, except for, once in a yellow moon, substituting Gouda for Cheddar for dinner? Or maybe when you have so much time you start wondering why cheese is called “cheese” and not “eseehc”, or why human are not born with dreadlocks like the Predators do? Well, we’ll see bout that.
I just have an urge to write about Parmie today. You know Parmie, you should be glad the first entry is specially dedicated to you. Parmie is my new pet.
Breed: Perodua Kembara.
Skin Color: Dark Black with white spots (the inverse color of a dalmation, due to infrequent bath ritual)
Characteristic: Aggressive, clueless, direction blind, scatterbrained.
Parmie is indeed a nice buddy to be with. She gave me the thrill of experiencing the outside world I never had before. I mean, the world outside my condo.
I treat her real nice. I brought her to a V-cool sunscreen treatment, bought her pets to play with (Hazel and Gloomy), brought her to fancy dinners in various petrorants. Later on, i might even send her to the orthodontist and get her kangaroo braces on! Cuz Parmie is just too wild when unleashed.
But im really worried about her health nowadays. When I first got her, I didn’t know she has this, erm, disorder I would call “Boozaholic”. She is diagnosed with an extraordinarily high metabolism that she needs to booze up petrol every so often. And that disorder is, unfortunately, incorrigible. So it’s either feed her or ditch her.
But how would I have the heart to ditch her!?
The toughest thing I’ve to deal with now is an ambivalent emotional struggle, with a mixture of excitement and post-travel-complex.
That was the first ever time I went overseas.
I’m still very much intoxicated with the trip. Finally I got back to KL, yesterday 10:30pm from Incheon international airport. How sweet it is to jump onto my bed of cheeses and munch on lotsa lotsa cheddar snacks. But there’s a teeny-weeny bit of post-travel-blue, I guess it’s like postnatal-blue or some sort. Hmmm…. I wonder why.
Summer in Korea isn’t that hot, maybe it isn’t midsummer yet. We were lucky as everywhere we went was cloudy and cool, cuz Korea is going to be in rain season right now.
One thing I love bout Korea is that they have water dispensers every where (save money to buy drinks) and erm, toilet paper in the wash rooms ALL THE TIME (no more post-business-fright).
But talking bout the food, sighs. Steamboat for breakfast (accompanied with kimchi), steamboat for lunch (accompanied with kimchi), and steamboat for dinner (accompanied with kimchi). How’s that for a trip? If we’re lucky we get to eat some BBQ or ginseng chicken soup. Once a while we did it the Chinese way. And I have to say Chinese food in Korea sucksssssss. Big time.
But there are several things I absolutely love to eat in Korea. First, the Lotte Shrimp Burger. The best thing ever. Second, breads from the bakery. I don’t know why, breads are breads right. But Korean breads are entirely different. It’s a little starchy and chewy but super nice! And then, the BBQ pork (it’s some kind of black piggie). Also there’s this translucent grass-noodle like thingie. Taste like Japanese Konyaku. They tossed it in mayo and it was served as a salad. Damn nice.
But the best thing is!
We had this cute photographer who tagged along the entire journey. He’s our photographer-cum-handyman-cum-waiter-cum-tour-guide-assistant-cum-eyecandy. (okay, for girls and obaasans). He’s a Korean who speaks little mandarin. Even though things get cheesed-up sometimes due to communication difficulty, he’s still so helpful (have to really emphasize that) that at last we had no grunts paying 50,000 (that’s like RM180) won for the pictures he had taken for us.
Everything was just nice there, except for the inevitable cheeselessness, which I’ve already anticipated. The aftermath of this trip is I hopelessly search for water dispensers everywhere I go, forgetting I’m already 4000km away from Seoul. Still there’s a regret, that is I haven’t tried any Korean Mc D! The Lotte burgers are finger lickin’ good though and cheesus are they healthy! They use rye bread, light mayo, rice cake, crissssssspy fresh salad, yogurt and fruits and of course, less cheese =(
Lets come back to the cheese hunt story. The result isn’t very satisfying. I had this tasteless fruit cheese slices in shopping complex, fried mozzarella stick in Lotte fast food chain. Bought a pack of corn cheese and Low-calories cheese shortbread. Haven’t tried them yet. By the way, have you guys seen red pepper, cactus and sake chocolate?
And the classic kimchi chocolate
Stay cheesed for more photos!
