A rather tragic weekend

tragic weekend fun

I went out drinking with Jan, Sam and Shawn on Saturday night after dinner at Bubba Gump. During the course of the night, I consumed enough ethanol to kill a small horse but somehow managed to maintain my sobriety.

tragic weekend absinthe

It was a night of Bloody Mary’s, absinthe, frozen martinis, shooters, Flaming Lamborghinis and various other cocktails and at the end of the session (and after racking up a staggering RM 566.96 bill); Jan got rather inebriated and fell down while puking on my shoes.

The problem is she fell flat on her face into the tarmac outside Telawi Street Bistro.

I tried to grab her, but missed and scraped my hand instead. Thus, I bundled her into my car sans seatbelt on the front seat while I drove back.

Thank God, Allah, Buddha, Confucius, Gaia, Sol Invictus et al that I didn’t run into any road blocks that night.

tragic weekend end

I cannot imagine talking my way out of a failed breathalyzer test with a passed out girl in my car. I think it would be a catastrophe of epic proportions if I were stopped by the police. Since I didn’t get apprehended, the damage level has been downgraded to merely tragic. πŸ˜‰

  1. ouch.
    looking at your pics brings back many ‘drink and crash’ bad memories. two smashed pair of specs, a few handphones into drains/missing/shattered and not to mention the occasional lost wallets.
    becareful hb. do what i usually do: when one drinks, the other shouldn’t. well at least not too much.
    2nd pic absinthe. hate the shitty normal fork they use. don’t they have a proper absinthe spoon? fail haha.

  2. hopefully this incident won’t leave any scars on the both of you (both physically and emotionally). it must have hurt a lot, ain’t it?? and that’s a long list of booze for one night…

  3. RM 566 + for a night of drinking is a big money! Especially when you puke it after you got drunk! :s Ahhhh, i’ll rather buy myself an expensive t shirt or … go to Prime for their steak!
    Oh btw, you can also donate to ChefMel Foundation. LOL. I am BROKE. lol

  4. chung: It’s physics: Mass x velocity. I only had one arm, I couldn’t catch her so we both fell down. I still have a bump on my head. Heh!
    eiling: Yeah, but I’m pretty alright, very tolerant to pain. Jan is okay too, which is good. πŸ™‚
    bongkersz: Indeed bro! πŸ™‚
    KL Chong: There are some places selling it but it’s just alcohol to me. πŸ™‚
    JolynGoh: Thanks Jolyn! πŸ™‚
    Shirley Snow: Cheers! πŸ™‚
    seth.frostheart: Hmm…I won’t pass a breathyser test but I wasn’t drunk. I was still in control of my motor functions. It was just the suddenness, the mass x velocity was too much for my one arm to handle, so we both fell down. :S
    cindy khor: It’s not that bad…will be more careful next time. Which reminds me, I need to send my car to the car wash. She puked on my front seat too. πŸ™‚
    chefmel: Haha! I’m broke too and I need to go Sri Lanka at the end of the month. πŸ™‚
    ChefMel foundation eh? Tax deductible or not? πŸ˜‰
    Doris: Haha! Oh well, different views. πŸ™‚
    KY: I was drinking slow that night coz I needed to drive, so it was over the entire night me thinks. Left at about 2-3 am. πŸ™‚
    custodes: Hmm…”wrong” and “right”. It’s all relative, isn’t it? πŸ™‚
    dawn: No worries Dawn! πŸ™‚

  5. HB, lucky it she puke it out. Must had a hangover next day. Mix drinks is what happened. I just drink one type only for the evening.

  6. annant: Heh! Technically I wasn’t that fucked up, it just so happens that it was too fast for me to react properly so I fell down with her. πŸ™‚
    foodcrazee aka mike: Cheers bro! I’m laying off the stuff for a while. πŸ™‚
    Jac: Eh? No la, this is Saturday night. The abrasions has already scabbed over by the Up screening. πŸ™‚
    Michael (Mike): I don’t really get hangovers unless I really do something stupid like drink a bottle of single malt neat over an hour.
    She seems fine the next day too, though she couldn’t really eat dinner.

  7. Jeff: Heh! Indeed bro, it was kinda fun but I won’t be repeating it anytime soon. πŸ˜‰
    custodes: Yup, and I could have killed someone while driving home sleep deprived from work too. Sleep deprivation is even worse than DUI. You could have killed someone driving while sleep deprived too.
    Judge not lest ye be judged yourself, holier than thou. πŸ˜‰

  8. adui, the bruises on her face looks like she just got beaten, and you’re the domestic abuser la. next time if you 2 go out, make sure only one of you drink la, it’s not safe drunk driving all the time.

  9. calvaryzone: It shouldn’t…abrasions aren’t that bad compared to cuts and such. πŸ™‚
    Tian Chad: I won’t be. I don’t drink like a fish if I know I have to be responsible for getting someone home. Designated driver mentality. πŸ™‚
    We had friends with us, they kindly got the car and drove us to our parking (which was quite far away and I don’t think I can lug her that far in that condition).
    Simmy: Haha! You know, that was our joke at first. πŸ™‚
    It’s okay, I know how much I can drink and still be relatively sober (as in sober enough to drive). πŸ™‚
    ktx: Yup, I’m heading to Sri Lanka on the 28th. I’m getting the lowdown from ShaolinTiger (who’s going there this weekend) before I go too. I’ll give you the 411 when I come back. Cheers! πŸ™‚

  10. imantulen: Heh! Cheers bro! πŸ™‚
    wen pnk: I won’t forget la…it just takes a while for me to dig it out of my memory, that’s all. πŸ˜‰
    Yeah, there is, abrasions…not very easy to heal coz of the place (lots of movement on the wrist).

  11. I think Malaysia are still too far away from don’t drink and drive. Dude, if really drunk, get a cab or find a place to stay nearby or get a friend to fetch you back. Cheers man!

  12. kennhyn: It’s the public transportation here. In Melbourne, there’s a midnight bus that runs each hour, on the hour till morning to bring home the ethanol impaired. πŸ™‚
    Cheers buddy!

  13. the claw…. Dude, what has been done to your hand? I assume all is allright?. I gotta go to a halloween thing on OCT 31. Then sober up for all saints day on 1 NOV. ( well then after that is Thansgiving, and God help me, looking for wards to Christmas) Can I use your hand as model? for halloween? Holey Shit, HB, please take care of your self a little better than that. sorry to sound like a Dutch uncle, but persons give a damn about you. ( great, now on top of everyone else, I got the Dutch pissed off. Never even been to Amsterdam, but My name will be for shit NOW. EH… rather go to Copenhegen any ways… Now That Should piss some off, but the truth, HB: get well) tom

  14. tom r: Yeah, it’s alright, it’s just very hard to heal coz of the location – wrist and I think it just might be getting worse instead of better due to my philosophy of generally not taking medication or putting balm unless it’s recreational in nature. πŸ˜‰
    I probably will get a Band Aid or something later. I don’t want it to turn into a festering wound.
    Have a great time on Halloween! πŸ™‚

  15. All relitive, HB. When I drink heavy ( lots of beer, licqor or whiskey would Kill me) once or twice a week, ( yeah that much…) I DONT DRIVE. saves lives. Mine included. But I am 50, and you are younger – 30? I am shooting for 80 at least, for I croak here. But I dont drink, ( or smoke, if that is your thing I dont do that at all, but what ever) and drive ANYWHERE. Put the keys in the closet. Live long and prosper, my friend. startreck is about to come on tv. Tom

  16. Not a tragic week. A bad week, maybe? But your and I Bad week is still ten times better than many on the street. Really, Give thanks, and help those you can. I did not have to go dumpster diviing for my evening meal, nor will I have to wrap up in a cast off, flea ridden blanket on a park bench tonight. I’ll sleep in a bed, albiet not on 600 thread count sheets. Mine just come from Kmart or the Dollar store. But they are mine. And I would share with any who needs it. Tomorow AM I will drink a glass of cranberry juice, eat a piece of toast( with peanut butter and a little strawberry jam. With a mug of tea. Not much, but I will do these things cause I am free. Not locked up cause of a stupid thing like DUI. I am not saying dont drink, cause I do, but dont drive. OK . Please A tragic week would be be putting a loved one in the dirt. Like I did last month. Twice. I hate funerals. Especially when they are young. Tom

  17. Getting stopped by police should have been the least of your worries. You could have hit and killed some innocent people should you get into an accident in your drunken state, have you stopped to think about that?

  18. tom r: My friend, I am very moved by your comment. That gives much insight indeed, thanks for sharing that. I will try not to drink and drive. Yes, you’re right, it’s better than putting a loved one in the dirt. Apologies. I wish you well my friend, and do hit the big 80. πŸ™‚
    dolly: I know! I felt so bad about that incident. :S
    Don’t drink and drive!: I understand your concern, but drinking and driving and driving under the influence are two different things (not to mention driving while intoxicated) which makes it 3 different situations. I drive safe when I’m drinking, but I’m trying to change that. Postition: Designation driver, paid by the hour. πŸ˜‰

  19. Yiling: Heh! Yeah, I bought two in Genting, this is my favorite one. πŸ™‚
    Okay, I’ll try not to drink and drive. Thanks for your concern! πŸ™‚
