poke ah poke.

The Father decided to explore the wonderful world of Facebook today.

In furtherance thereof, I was bombarded with the following questions upon my return home at 11.30pm:

F: What is poke ah?
Me: Uh. Why don’t you just ignore that function for now.
F: But I want to know what is poke.
Me: No need la. U just needed to see your messages right? And the pics?
F: Nono tell me what is this poke? Poke got message one anot?
Me: No la poke no message one.
F: SOOOO what is poke???
Me: (-.-) It’s a function to disturb people. No meaning one.
F: Oh. (thinks) So who can I poke?
Me: Your friends la.
F: How to see my poke?
Me: (halfway up the stairs) I think it’s either in the profile or the home page.
F: (clicks and scrolls) Don’t have leh. (looks at me beseechingly)
Me: (*sighs* walks down to check) Maybe you were poked too long ago la.

craving schmaving.

One of the more hilarious things that happened today:

Dad: Why this _______ Hotel got no contact number one.
Me: (peering over at the screen) That’s cause you’re not on the hotel’s official website. Look for “Contact Us” on the hotel homepage.
Dad: Oh so I just type in “”? Wah that’s quite smart.
-stunned silence-

I was not so satisfied with my bubble tea today. Meh. Starting to agree with the world that Koi is overrated. The only part I really like about it is that you can choose the amount of sugar that goes in. Otherwise the small pearls are kinda annoying for bracefaces like me. It gets stuck all the time!

And my oh my, just as I was complaining of the lack of ___________, in ___________ pops. WOOHOO!

Today was overall a good day. Despite the fact that I forgot to bring my glasses and was squinting at the screen all day long. My left eye feels overtaxed and my right eye went on holiday. =.=

slow it down

Yesterday night was a beautifully cool and breezy one. Dad and I sat on the patio (if you could call it that? it makes my house sound enormously large and atas when it’s not HAHA) and had a lovely chat whilst sipping green tea. Topsy hobbled his way out to join us too!

These are the times I love. :)

home is my amusement park

1. DAD, Supreme Hater Of All Things Cutesy, refused to let me switch away from Disney Channel today, which was showing Skyrunners.
-cue fainting-

2. Boiled Egg Indicator
Me: I’m gonna get ice cream. You want?
Mom:  No, but help me check if my eggs have boiled.
Me: OK!
-saunters to kitchen-
Me: (belatedly) Wait, how do I check if your eggs have boiled?!

healthy cereal.

Mom: (peering anxiously at the cereal box) How do you check how this cereal is made?
Me: Huh? Why do you need to know?
Mom: (in all seriousness) I want to make sure this cereal is not deep-fried.
Me: (dying of laughter) Mom, if the cereal was deep fried, you’d see oil floating around in the milk!!!

my fascinating mother.

When watching Beyonce’s “I Am… Yours” promo ad, which included a clip of Beyonce and her backup dancers shaking their booty in Single Ladies,  she remarked, “Wah. I never thought I’d live to see the day when people wear swimsuits to dance on stage.

Deep discussions of what should be and what shouldn’t, and valiant efforts to speak bad English.

I feel very loved. =)
