My birthday conspiracy (which makes for reasonably good reading)

It’s times like these that I think there’s a higher power somewhere looking out for me. smirk It just so happened that I was back in my home town during my birthday (which coincides with Ching Ming) so I didn’t have much to do on Saturday night. I thought I’ll give a friend of mine a call and get some ketamine and treat myself to a nice k-hole for my birthday.

He didn’t pick up when I called him.

(I learned later this was a blessing in disguise)

Right after that, I went down and my dad asked me to pick someone up from the airport. That’s highly unusual, especially since he didn’t say who (my sister and her family had already gone back).

I pressed him for details and it turns out that my better half (whom I love to death) is coming to Sibu to celebrate my birthday with me. My dad had known since Tuesday (!!!) when she contacted him to arrange this conspiracy surprise.

The phone rang right after he told me – it was my friend, calling back. He said he missed my call since he took his daughter out and asked me what was up. I said nothing much and hung up.

*PHEW*

If you have skipped the beginning of this tale, this is the same friend whom I was about to arrange to get some ketamine for a personal birthday treat to myself.

What would have happened if my dear had arrived smack dab while I was in a dissociative state where I was thinking more about 4th and 10th dimensional beings and pondering the reality of our existence?

(or maybe that she was some kind of ketamine induced visual and auditory hallucination)

HAHAHA

Like I said, there is a God.

I’m kidding. That’s a heavily Photoshopped picture of salt (sodium hydrochloride) crystals packed in baggies to look like the real thing. It was pink Himalayan salt to boot, which had me adjusting all the contrast and levels and RGB details to make it look white and similar to ketamine crystals.

(either that, or I really digged out the real thing from my photo archives from years and years back action)

This is a highly elaborate running inside joke that I have with my dear, I seriously have quit all recreational substances, pharmaceuticals and anything that might even remotely alter my state of mind. No wink wink, nudge nudge stuff, this is for realz yo. I don’t even drink much anymore.

There’s no ketamine.

I love my dear to bits and she’s everything to me – I have always been true to her and haven’t touched anything mind-altering for almost three (3) years, ever since I have been with her.

Sarawak Laksa

Me and my dad picked her up from her airport and we went to Aloha Cafe to eat her favorite Sarawak Laksa.

Payung Cafe

The three of us also had a very nice dinner at Payung Cafe at night.

Braun Buffel Birthday Gift

She came bearing gifts too – a Braun Buffel wallet and a UNIQLO shirt.

Braun Buffel Grey Wallet

My wallet has been a sad specimen for a long time and I think she noticed that and got me a really expensive and nice grey one from the German premium leather designer.

Frankfurt Passport Stamp

I love that she has a passport stamp of last year, when we flew to Germany and France – it’s dated 5th of April 2014, my birthday.

Sibu Passport Stamp

This year, she has a stamp on 5th of April 2015 but this time in Sibu. It’s small things like this that means a lot to her and a lot to me too coz it shows how much she cares that she spends every birthday with me (despite telling me she will not this year coz she’s busy with GST to make the surprise better).

I love you dear. I’m glad you flew down all the way to surprise me and planned it with my dad. Thanks for all the gifts and most of all for gracing my birthday with your presence, even if it was just one day.

Birthday 2015

It’s the best birthday ever! You make my life better and you make me a better man by just being in it. <3

A bottle contains more philosophies than all the books in the world

I got this acrylic painting from Jerine as a present. I managed to meet up with her just now at 1U and she drew me down to a T. Heh!

(coz she says I write too much like a copywriter)

Ahahahaha… WTF man! I don’t even have time to blog on my own blog now I have to write here? Oh well… That’s one of my recent masterpiece. The story goes back to when I wanted to paint one for my boss then he (HB) said “Eh, draw for me also lah”. Since he’s so nice, I can’t refuse his request. I’ve already done thousands…. oh no… I’m exaggerating… maybe a hundred of such paintings for friends. Normally, I just draw my friend with a hint of that person’s personality. But HB is like sooooooooooo random and he has sooooooo many interests, I had a hard time to draw this one. Should I draw him with casino chips? Or him with exotic foods? Or him with all the six seals sign of the end of the world? Like what they say, alcohol probably is the most inspiring thing in this world. There was a bottle of beer right in front of me. And the voila!!! You have that painting of HB with a bottle of beer in his hand!

I really like this one and it’s moving with me along with Jammie’s table. I’m going to hang it on the wall of my new place. I do wish that artistic liberty was taken to make me look better though.

Sony Ericsson W660i

black box

I lost my cell phone and digicam in Miri during a particularly excessive session of snorting, er…I mean, drinking. I have been procrastinating in the acquisition of a new cell phone coz I’ve been busy with work and I was also waiting for the Sony Ericsson X1 to come out. My previous one was a SE W580i and I’ve been asking Mary (who also owns a cell phone shop in addition to her Kokoberry outlet) to keep me posted about the arrival of the SE X1 Pocket PC phone.

y present

In the meantime, I figured I would use Faye’s backup Nokia cell phone and the 016 870 2069 supplementary line. I didn’t even have time to go to Digi to get my 016 888 2069 main line number back until earlier this week! The 870 supplementary line is meant for the person I call most frequently (which is usually my girlfriend but I don’t have one right now) since the main line to supplementary line calls are free under the Digi 1 Plan package.

se w660

However, Y turned up at my house after work and presented me with a box wrapped in black matte paper. I honestly had no idea what it contained or why she was giving me a present. I unwrapped The Black Box and was surprised that it contained a brand new Sony Ericsson W660i. I was more than a little touched by the gesture, it was really thoughtful of her. Thank you!

se w660 gift

Anyway, apparently she had talked to Mary and asked her to recommend a Sony Ericsson cell phone (which I use exclusively) with a simple camera function as a backup for my digicam. Y got me the SE W660i since I always lose/drop/destroy my cell phones and she figured she’ll kill me if she gave me a SE X1 and I lost it, so she went with the SE W660i just in case I lose it again. Heh!

se w660i

It cost RM 590 for the SE W660i with a 512 MB M2 memory card, which was cheaper than all the other outlets out there. Thanks, Mary for giving her a special price! :)

P/S – You know who Y is, Mary, and for reasons that cannot be mentioned on the blog, she must not be named either on the blog or in person. You know why. ;)

P/P/S – If any of my future girlfriends-to-be read this, please do not give me a cell phone as a present. It’s a jinx on the relationship. The two girlfriends I had who gave me cell phones as presents are both ex-girlfriends now. Both within a month. Seriously. It’s bad mojo. Just don’t. ;)
