Ford Ranger Challenge

So we've been working on some new accomadation to host some Local NGO groups, Had the hardest time trying to cart things around. Life is just so pre-historic here. The perfect solution came along when we saw the Ford Ranger Challenge Ad. Stand a chance to win a new truck!!! Mamamia! After filling in the details etc.. case went cold. - But that is till last Sunday! Anton got a call from em. Whooopie didnt think we would stand a chance. Naturally every1 is bouncing off the walls in excitement like a Ribenna Berry.

We need this truck! SO PLEASE VOTE FOR US!!!

Coffee ( Tea ) Party at the office

Add to Technorati Favorites

We don't usually have coffee/tea breaks much at work.. But it seems the only way I can limit my caffeine intake is to share. I got a great bag of Papau New Guinea Blue Mountain from a good friend few days a ago...I know, go big or go home right? Since its somewhat forbidden for preggars to take coffee, I might as well make the best of it & have the best the world can offer.That delicious cobalt blue foil packet calls to me relentlessly everyday!!! Aarrghh I cant take it no more!

Im no connoisseur but I do love my coffees & now that my palate for food ( food is also a big deal for me ) is all fucked, life has become bleak & depressing.. not to mention I've had problems sleeping too.Anyways I gulp down my 8oz worth of guilty pleasure in less than 5 minutes. All I can say im impressed by what mother earth can produce ..of course given the right conditions.

So often we take everyday meals for granted, Essentially its fuel for the body, mind & soul - Im sure mother-in-laws,orthodox midwives,hardcore chinese sinseh types who practice their so called self-righteous pragmatism are rolling their eyes on the very irony of my
coffee article. For the record..Im so glad Anton's Mum - Mary has no place in this department & im allowed to eat,drink as I want. (MAJOR BONUS GIRLFRIENDS! TRUST ME.) -I digress. So now that Im eating for 2,you cant help but be grateful for Earth's provision. Everything you need in order to keep those delicate wheels & gears turning is out there in the fields,seas,mountain,streams.I can only hope people realise the severity of tipping the balance of our ingenious food chain. I guess we humans are not so smart after all.. always making the most obvious mistakes.

But today im putting em 'Horse Blinkers'' on,...Its Black gold babyy! black gold! WWeeeehooo.

Mr Majawat & Mrs Hall's Wedding

We had the honour of hosting Ian & Eve's wedding few weeks back, Ian is an Architect based in KK ,he's also working on the upcoming Sunbear sanctuary & some really cool beach shacks in Mantanani island.
Eve's a journalist from KL. They brought together about 80-100 party animal all looked like they've been caged for way too long :0) I must say they've officially outdo us in the party department & I feel old & domesticated watching on.

1) They absolutely tear the roof off a Karaoke bar in the dodgiest part of town ( Even I didnt know of it existed,apparently that was only a warm up session )
2) The girls had team Ian go through horrible forfeits & punishments in mid day heat ( All to proof worthy of the bride's hand )
3) A crazy cultural medley when the couple did the tea ceremony dress in Cheong Sam + Scottich Kilt + on our vintage Malay wedding throne + Hippie streamers in the background
4) Beers to cool the mid day heat
5) Sunset Cocktails,courtesy of ehem us ..
6) Then some food & great speeches
7) More booze & potent Tapai ( local Rice Wine ) to get the party going
8 ) Some dancing ..some drag dancing to be exact
9) More booze
10 ) We left & last checked party did not end till 5am - Sunrise is about 5.30 here.

ohh oh .. I almost forgot she gave everyone the loveliest wedding favour everr..A family recipe book,a compilation of both families secret recipes ( Duhh )

Nevertheless I really admire the enthusiasm & randomness of this quirky bunch. But all in all it was nothing short of the big four letter word. L.O.V.E Im glad we got to be part of it.
