champagne-flavoured gummies

Last Saturday night, we stayed home and watched dvd.  Instead of junk foods, we had strawberries, blueberries and grapes that we picked up at the grocery earlier.  Yeah thats Tiger Woods in Vanity Fair at the height of his philandering brouhaha, buddy bought that:)

 
The grapes tasted funny, buddy commented it is already spoiled.  So I took the packaging and saw the name Korean campbell grapes. I simply picked it up because it looks attractive. I checked in the internet and found out the complete name is Korean Campbell Early Hwaseong Grapes.  Somebody described it as tastes like 'champagne-flavoured gummies', which is absolutely right. I guess this is not to everyone's liking though.
   
 

The strawberries were huge.
 

Unfortunately, the dvd copy was crappy. A nightmare on Elm Street (I think it's a remake), they've probably made a hundred sequels of this movie.:)

 
The movie was bad too, it's not scary at all.  But we don't have anything else to watch so I just sit still because buddy he gets really upset when I leave him watching alone.  

And I noticed our last year's christmas decor are still hanging.  I have nothing much to do so I was playing with my camera and took all these photos:)

a witch was trying to eat me

Right after gym, we went for a massage. This time we went to a new place instead of the centre that we usually go, the masseurs and masseuses (ok say that 10times as fast as you can) there were also from China.  We checked the prices and I whispered to buddy, 'so expensive, almost double the price from the other place'.  But we tried anyway.

The next day, I felt something sore at my nape.  Hey, come see my back, she massaged me so hard until the skin also come off.  Let me see, buddy checking, yeah, we should call them and complain.  I said, no need la, she also didn't do this on purpose.





...................................................................................................................................

It happened again one night last week.  'Hey hey what's wrong?'  Buddy was trying to wake me up.  I can feel his palm pressing my chest.  He said he can hear me making some scared noises.  Bad dream again.  Ever since I was young, I seem to get nightmares easily.  He's used to it now,  last time he dragged me to see his traditional Chinese doctor to check what's wrong with me, and had accupuncture -- in the head! 'Oh wait, are you sure the needles won't touch my brain' (as if I got one hah).

I remember many years ago, in one of those sleepovers at my cousin's place and had a nightmare there and my cousin was freaked out.  Sometimes I'm kinda worried I might embarrass myself while sleeping in the plane during a flight:)  And the reason why I will never sleep naked alone because I would have those funny thoughts what if I die while asleep?...  and get exposed to people who stumbled on me the next day :D Yikes it won't be pretty sight!   Erm, or it could be just that I'm insane in the brain and just didn't know it (oh that reminds me its been a long time didn't hear Cypress Hill :)

'Hey hey what's wrong? What did you dream about?'.  I mumbled, 'a witch was trying to eat me' and doze off back to sleep.


(The 2 episodes are not related, in case anyone's wondering:D

flip-flops & showergels

Anyone passing by our place would think a bunch of people are staying inside seeing all the flip-flops parked at our door.  Well, we are kind of the flip-flop guys, we just love 'em.  They're comfortable and fit perfectly well in our sizzling weather. And with shorts, we are ready to go anywhere:) 

We have already thrown away 2 pairs before this photo was taken.  And lately, retired another 3 more pairs including that dirty yellow colored one:) 


.................................................................................................................


And anyone getting inside our bathrooms would surely notice the overflowing bottles of shampoo and showergels.  I once told buddy to stopped buying these already.  He replied, 'can't! this makes me happy.'  I kind of 'oh okay'.

We can't possibly finish them all even if we do shower twice a day. Just a month ago, we have already exiled a few barely used bottles to his Auntie's place.  She doesn't have to buy shampoo and showergels anymore, she's assured of an uninterrupted supply:)

These are all his....


and some on the sink....   and still some more in the bathroom floor.



















The other week, he saw these in a shop and bought all three of them at one go (he thought they were cheap).  But didn't really use them.  I find it a bit of waste so I don't mind using the middle one, yeah that one with the gensing root thrown inside. While the other two, nah I'm definitely not using them.  'I don't know why you bought these, they all stink!'.  There goes some more for his Auntie. 
 
















these are mine, not much really...  and some I got from him:)
