Lite-Up cigarettes – RM 1.50 only!

lite up cigarettes

I’m pleased to present to you the cheapest pack of cigarettes I’ve
seen to date – it’s called Lite-Up and comes in a red box and retails
for the amazingly low price of RM 1.50 per pack!

lite up sibu

Lite-Up cigarettes is made in Sibu, which also happens to be my
hometown. It’s a limited distribution locally produced tobacco product.

The pack of Lite-Up opens up to show the standard King Size filter
20’s cigarettes. It has a stylized L on the tip of the cigarette and a
stylized “LITE-UP” font in red on top.

I can’t say much about the taste of the cigarettes…it’s not all
that good, which is pretty much obvious when you take into account the
incredibly low RM 1.50 retail price.

lite up spin

You can’t argue with the price though…and the tobacco is nice and dry. I just use the tobacco to spin. ;)

Newman's Milk Chocolate TV Mix

newmans tv mix choc

The most interesting about the TV Mix blue tins of chocolate from
Newman’s is the solid and well made build quality. The experience I’ve
always had with (suffix/prefix) TV snacks have always been slightly
disappointing with regarding to the aesthetics. Case in point: Arnott’s
TV Snacks with cardboard boxes. It shouldn’t need a fancy container,
really, coz it’s likely to be consumed while watching that episode of
The Sopranos, but still…

Newman’s, now, they went at it in a whole new approach. The Milk
Chocolate covered assorted TV Mix chocolates is housed in an impressive
Colonial style (actually I don’t know what art/masonry influence period
it came from, I just pulled that out of my ass) metal housing, complete
with a fully functional gold latching system that looks archaic, but
pleasing, at the same time.

The latching gold piece with a hinge goes around the circumference
of the Newman’s milk chocolate TV Mix metal box and functions to secure
the container when it’s not supposed to be ajar. The latch piece and
cool metal box of these chocolate TV Snacks makes it a pleasure to just
put it on my lap for easy access whenever I wanted one of the chocolate
covered snacks.

The push down and flip up double action golden latch piece is
intuitive to use and did not cause any accessibility problems with the
chocolate. The solid feeling latch opens with a satisfying click and
flipped shut using the same mechanism too. The gold latch manages to
stay shut every time with no degradation in terms of wear and tear
despite the much higher than average times it was flipped open, just to
feel the latch and hear it go “Click!” ;)

newmans tv mix lid

The other thing which stands out in the Newman’s Milk Chocolate TV
Mix casing is the felt lined blue and red recessed top, seemingly to
isolate the ambient moisture from affecting the chocolate produce. It
looks normal on the outside, but the red and blue interior lid
poly/foam adapter goes flush against the four sides of the metal
container and the latch circumference when the lip is in a closed
position.

The Newman’s Milk Chocolate TV Mix opens up to reveal a wrapped
package of chocolate covered candy. Newman’s, in addition to making
precision custom containers, also makes chocolate, in case it slipped
anyone’s mind. Confectionary is their primary line of business.
Newman’s is an Australian brand, operating from Victoria; which
happened to be the same state I was staying in before I started
working, so I’m familiar with their product line. It tastes like
chocolate should…rich, creamy and (cloyingly) sweet. ;)

I love the variety that the Newman’s TV Mix offers too – there are
several types of nuts (hazelnuts, almonds, etc.) covered with chocolate
and a few (I counted three) surprise non-nut item to add variety. It’s
one of the things you either love or hate.

I love licorice. :)

Eternity Moment

eternity moment

Eternity Moment. The exquisite CK female fragrance I bought for you…

eternity meth

Eternity Moment. The toxic old crystal methamphetamine I bought for myself…

eternity terumo

I messed up again. The siren call got too strong and I had to chase
that high. Eternity in a moment…or one moment in eternity…to be
faster, stronger, better than everyone.

eternity terumo syringe

I still want out though. I always want out. I don’t want to be stuck
in this compulsive cycle. I want to quit. I will quit. My
methamphetamine use has affected me in everyway especially when I binge
and go on a run like this, not drinking, not eating, not sleeping. I
can’t hold it together anymore.

eternity terumo syringe meth

I can’t be like other people, who can use it for a day or three and
then stop while eating proper meals. I guess my brain chemistry is just
wired different. I think the new term for it is Reward Deficiency
Syndrome (RDS). I just go on and on to chase that high…the one that’s
never attainable…but I go for it anyway.

eternity spun psychotic break

I realize that this cannot go on, coz it kills me every time I go on
a meth run. But I’ve said this before and you’ve seen too many promises
broken and broken again. I’ve made a mess out of my life again and I
desperately want to put the pieces back together again. I do know that
I cannot make you happy, as much as I like to. I know you’ve been
sticking with me all this while even though you have your (justified)
doubts about me.

eternity louisa me flashback

I love you, but I’m no good for you. I can’t remember the last time
you were really happy – it must be years. It’s hard for me to lose a
level headed person like you; you have always been the floating buoy in
the turbulent deep seas that I always swim out to. I can’t be selfish
though…even though you forgive me, there’s too much deceit and guilt
in this relationship. It can prove to be too much to live with…

I’ll miss you and I’ll always love you, my dearest wife. Thanks for being with me all these years…

It’s hard…when the night has come, and the land is dark…
…and the moon is the only light to see.

No, I won’t be afraid. No, I won’t be afraid.
Just as long as you stand by me.

Darling, darling, stand by me…
Stand by me.

Thumb slices kitchen knife

knife thumb slice

I have butterfingers…I managed to slice a kitchen knife with my
right thumb last night at a friend’s house. I’m not used to a kitchen
knife for precision work, and that combined with my innate clumsiness
resulted in the slicing of a cross section of my right thumb topography.

knife thumb bleed

Well, the thing that happened was, I was trying to open a plastic
packet and put the kitchen knife with the business end upright (facing
me) while I used a downward motion to push the plastic baggie down to
leverage on kinetic energy, which would hopefully result in a clean
shear down the plastic. Alas…my right thumb was in the way….

knife thumb tissue

I didn’t even realize I cut myself until I saw the skin flapping
around (it went down to the dermis) and blood coming out at a
prodigious rate. My friend handed me tissues and I’ve been applying
pressure on the wound without much recourse. I did not feel pain, and I
forgot about my thumb most of the night.

knife thumb clot

Except when I looked at it, of course…I did not put a band-aid or
anything on it the whole night, and I was thinking I could get an
infection due to the depth of the would (went through the sub dermal
layer). I had cold chills and a slight fever as well, which made me
wish I bandaged the damn thing. I still haven’t. ;)

I went to a really great recording studio with a couple of friends
last night…the place was amazing, I didn’t know there’s a facility
like that in Kuching. I’m planning to record a session this weekend.
I’m making arrangements for one guitar, one bass, and one drum player
who knows NOFX/Green Day songs or is good with playing printed guitar
tabs on the fly.

I’ve always wanted to record a demo but I never did get around to
doing it. Now that the arrangements have been made, it looks good. The
next project (which I’ve mentioned previously on the blog) I want to do
is a self-produced movie using a script I wrote (it’s a realistic love
story with violence and drugs) but I have neither the right cast nor a
fucking video camera. I want to do that before I get too old, so I’m
going to be working towards that too.

Anyone in Kuching interested? I need two female leads (preferably
aesthetically pleasing) and a lot of supporting cast, preferably not
looking like choir boys or the bookworm of the class since it’s going
to be a gritty and realistic film – if you feel at home at a dodgy
club, that’s the look that’s perfect for the film. Not the dressing up
for the meat market look, but come out and play, no holds barred look.
It’s obviously a labor of love, so I can’t pay the cast…the obvious
benefit is being in a film (however limited distribution it’s going to
be).

I’ve actually got the two female leads but one of them went to KL so
I’m looking for a Ah Lian type of girl (who can speak English,
obviously, it’s just the look we’re going for), since the other female
lead is going to be the nice girl next door. It sounds cheesy, but I
promise it’s not – it’s hard hitting, realistic, gritty (using this
word for the second time) movie shot in and around Kuching and KL. The
male supporting cast is partially filled up from a verbal agreement
with some of my friends – these I specially picked coz they have to
fight, and I’m not going to compromise the film by using
post-production…

I got into the concept when I was involved with a student film
production in Melbourne, and realized that making a film isn’t that
hard, if you’re going indie. I wrote the script that year too, but I
incorporated some changes every now and then when I’m in the mood. The
protagonist is going to be yours truly, and no, it’s not impossible to
be in a film and direct it at the same time. I’ve actually done a lot
of groundwork on this…everything except the two things I need to do
it.

I even got a club to agree to let me film in the premises in the
morning! It’s good, obviously they can’t allow a crew to take up floor
space during the night, and they’ll get the DJ and lighting and sound
systems up…and if you’ve been to a club in the morning, you’ll find
that it’s not very different from the night if the systems are set up.
There’s two scenes planned for this venue – a raid and a gang fight
outside. These two scenes are going to require a lot of people, I’ve
got the latter covered, but will need some people for the former.

Like I mentioned, I still need a couple of people for supporting
cast members, and I have to tell you up front that it’s not for the
squeamish…the last thing I want to hear is people telling me “I don’t
know how to smoke” (Pet peeve: I hate actors who don’t inhale – it’s
distracting, why cast a non-smoker for a role like that?), “I can’t
make out with that girl, I already have a gf”, “What? There’s going to
be drugs on the set?!? I’m supposed to do it for real?”, or anything along that line. I reiterate – Not for squeamish.

If it makes people feel better, I will be receiving my share of
whoop ass and dishing it out in the film too. I probably should mention
that the substances featured in the film is non-psychoactive
substitutes for legal reasons…but off the record…

Everything will be real – real fights, real blood, real sex, real drug use. It’s going to be perfect…

P/S – Does anyone have replica firearms which look like a Beretta 92D?

Get yourself in the most uncompromising self-funded Malaysian produced independent movie! ;)

Giant Kobe Wine Pocky

glico pocky kobe wine

This is the giant Pocky featuring the Rose Kobe Wine flavor that’s
only available in Japan. I’m told that each prefecture in Japan has its
own district exclusive coating that best describes the character of the
place.

P/S – Please ignore the underwear in the upper right hand corner on the photo.

glico pocky kobe wine logo

Going back to the regularly scheduled programming, the giant Pocky
contains 24 individually wrapped Pocky sticks. The huge box has “Pocky”
in gold font as well as stylized “Rose” lettering to indicate the
flavor.

There is a logo on the box which indicates the special flavor of
this Pocky – Kobe Wine. For those who are not familiar with this
popular Asian snack produced by Glico, Pocky is a long and thin
biscuit, and comes in various flavors, with some only available in
certain areas, like this one.

To show the impact of this gigantic Pocky box, here’s a size
comparison with a standard pack of cigarettes. It can go three up and 2
1/2 over. It’s that huge…

Opening up the box, the wrapper is pink, with gold lettering and graphics featuring the Kobe Wine theme.

The graphics on the wrappers on the Kobe Wine Pocky sticks are
nicely detailed, starting with the Pocky label, with the regional
specific flavor (Kobe Wine), followed by a bottle of wine, a cork and
then a corkscrew…

The giant Kobe Wine Pocky has a purple-red hued coating and tastes like blueberries with a slight rose wine touch to it.
