Of things to come

Had a busy but good week. Mr. Ng the photographer took over eight hundred shots for this blog and the other website. Mostly bad.

Mr. Ng the photographer is a lousy good-for-nothing bum who will be taken to task for his poor performance despite being equipped a new high-end camera.


Anyway, as this blog is busy with work over the week, it’ll take some time to post the pictures. Be patient.

For those who have started to complain about the delay:

Listen, this blog has to work for a living.

Furthermore, this blog has a life.

You get that one for free.

Do not mistake my tolerance for hospitality.

For the rest, here’s a heart-stopping preview:








Shockingly bad photos no?

Kinda cool, you look like a mafia boss in that pic.


umami commented on November 28, 2005 at 11:07 am

yar, the lighting on the first picture is twisting my mind.

poor kitty.

Carrie: My name is not long enough. Usually Mafia dons have names like Corleone or Bartolomew. But yeah, I know what you mean.

Umami: The pussy shot was take from 15 feet away using zoom lens. I particularly like this shot because I achieved it even after all the alcohol. 😉

As for the first shot, I kinda look like the majodomo of a brothel.

i expected you to burst out some kungfu moves from the first shot. teehee

and my camera shots are worst. I’m still using an ancient 2.0 pixel camera, even phones have caught up to me. goodness.

and why are you always eating such good food!? very jealous i am.

and i have no demands on your blog whatsoever. (whispers: dont kungfu chop me)

Me? Kung Fu? Nah…

Was just pissed at some woman who used my blog to harass my friends (her ex-friends now) who went for some dinners without her.

I also found out that she stabbed me in the back during the weekend, so I am not in a happy place now.

As for getting to eat good things, it’s not hard.

Send me an email. I can hook you up with some makan enthusiasts.

It’s a beautiful tomcat named “Basil” (after Fawlty Towers) rescued from the SPCA by my friends.

They have 5 cats at home. All with wonderful personalities.

Basil? Could it be Jeremy’s cat? I went to his place to collect a cake once and his cat Basil leaped at my skirt. Jeremy said Basil usually didn’t do that, and asked if I had a cat at home (not at that time). Could be the vibes I send off, though!

I think Basil likes to play with dangling things, so your skirt (the hem) might set him off.

Wait… a skirt?
