Pissing Humour


Can you spot what's wrong with this picture?

Make a guess before you scroll down for the answer and the story that goes with it.


Let's scroll down.


Realising that we weren't going to make it back in time for dinner with the rest of the tournament participants, we decided to pull over at one of the restaurants along the street to stop for dinner.

So while the rest of the party were settling down at the table, AP (the guy in the cap and bermudas) and I headed to the rest room to take a leak for we have been stuck in the car for close to 2 hours. Besides, we also needed to wash our hands prior to dinner too.

As I was washing my hands, AP started swearing and cursing all the Cantonese expletives, the natural reaction for me would be to quickly turned around to see what happened and I found myself bursting into hysterical laughter.

AP was pissing all over his shoes as the urinal was not connected to the pipe below! I could have sworn that his pair of burgundy New Balance sneakers was a shade more orange as a result of the "yellow dye".
What happened next was even funnier.

AP, still cursing and swearing non-stop, shifted to adjacent urinal while in midstream and pissing across the wall in the process. WTF??!!

I can only sketch what I saw here for :
  1. by the time I whipped out my camera, it would have been all over anyway and,
  2. AP would kill me if he caught me taking picture of him pissing.
The rest of the party who went in after us were complaining about the rest room, for there was piss everywhere.

AP and I kept really quiet throughout dinner.

Tree Roots

As I was writing about my visit to the tree root carving village, I spotted this place and some of the unique root formations.

These are 2 separate roots and they formed 2 Ch1nese word characters. Can you guessed what they are?
The smaller one on the left is the word (happiness) and the bigger one on the right is the word 寿 (longevity). Did anyone managed to see it?

So I guess it is perfectly natural to put these two words together to form the phrase of blessing 寿.

Question. What do you think this is? Divine message or merely a rare coincidence?

I choose to believe that it is the latter. A mere coincidence which brings me to the hoo-hah in Jurong West recently, where people found image of the Monkey God on the bark of a tree and another Hindu deity look-alike at the root of another tree.

With all due respect to the various religions, I think we are taking the Jesus-On-Toast fiasco a tad too far. It got so bad that the worshipping went deep into the night and causing traffic jams on that street, much to the displeasure of the local residents. So far, I think the person with the greatest blessing would the ice-cream man and his mobile refrigerator cart.

Qiaoyun has covered this on her blog. Click here to read all about it.

Here's the thing. People see what they want/hope/wish to see. Remember how we used to stare up at the clouds when we were kids and then starting to see familiar shapes form by the white gaseous fluff of water vapour?

Hey! Look up there! It's a bunny! It's a sheep! It's a KFC Crispy left side chicken breast with an upsized cup of rootbeer! 

Apologies if I appear to mock but isn't the Monkey God a fictional character? It would have been far more credible if you say you saw GuanYin (观音) or Ma Tsu (妈祖) but Monkey God Sun WuKong? That's a character from an old Ch1nese folklore! No?

Anyway, I shall quit my skeptic criticism here before people start pelting stones or issue a fatwa (or any other religious equivalent) on my life. It wasn't the main jist of this entry, anyway.

Instead, I saw something deeper in this and I don't like what I saw.

The massive throngs of devotees rushing to pray for blessing at such fervour is alarming. It tells of something wrong.

Don't bury your head and deny it for what I said is true. I was a regular church-going Chr1stian when I was living in Singapore and I can honestly tell you that church attendance is always fuller in times of recession and/or desperation and I am sure this is probably the same situation across all the religions.

Ahh... such is the nature of the human race.

So what can be wrong in the island that we call home? The stock index is shooting through the roof, our Gahmen are releasing positive numbers of the jobs that they have created and the impressive percentage number of our economic growth, quarter after quarter. What can be wrong?

Yet, judging from what I hear and see (from pictures), devotees are rushing to pray at a desperate fervour.

Is something wrong? Or is something going to be wrong?

Please. Go think about it.

Root Sculpting

Continuing from my earlier entry where I was in GuiLin, we stopped by a village en route back to the hotel. This was no ordinary village. This was a village that specialises in root sculpting i.e. carvings and sculptures of tree roots. The thing about some of these villages here is that you sometimes get the whole village involved in a single trade as a mean to make a living for all the families living inside. Remember my earlier entry about SiJiu (四九) Town? Same concept, different product.

As I opened my car door after being stuck in the car all air conditioned and stuffy, I was hit by the refreshing scent of Camphor wood (樟木). It very much reminded me of Grandpa's house in Ta!pei where camphor wood furniture was and still is very popular among the elder Ta!wanese generations.

For a moment, I thought I was back in Grandpa's home as I haven't had this pleasant bouquet flirting with my olfactory senses in a long time.

Just to show how big one of these roots can be, I took this picture with my buddy AP (white shirt and bermudas) standing next to it to give you an idea. If this was merely the root of the tree, can you imagine how big the tree was?

Perhaps this was the piéce de résistance where, again my lovely assistant, AP, has again kindly volunteered* to model for me. For this particular root, it was sawed in half due to its sheer size, which would explain the flat bottom. So in actual fact, this root was in reality, double in size of what you see here.

* Well, I kinda volunteered him without him knowing. =P

I was thinking to myself how many years it took for this tree to grow to such majestic magnitude and yet in the name of human consumption, it was felled in a matter of minutes.

I was also thinking how the heck did these tree loggers managed to get the tree out to this village? Think for a moment, for a tree to be this big, it has got to be very far from civilisation, probably smack in the middle of some deep forest somewhere. Away from civilisation means no roads for the heavy transport to get in to retrieve the tree and no roads for the tree to be transported out. So how did this tree managed to end up here.

My guess is possibly the sheer will power of the human labour. You have got to respect the Spitlanders for pulling this off, even though what they did is not exactly very eco-friendly but I digress.

(Click Each Picture To Enlarge)

Camphor is the wood of choice due to the beauty of its natural burl and scent but other woods like Spruce are also used by less popular.

Most of the sculptings are either dioramas or figure carvings of folklore figures (like the 18 LuoHans, laughing monk), animals (dragon, phoenix, tigers, eagles), religious deities (Buddha and Goddess of Mercy GuanYin) as well as a traditional Ch1nese tea (泡茶) table set.

The last shot at the bottom shows a diorama in the making and it stretched all the way from the foreground to the back where the windows was. Can you say L-A-R-G-E?

Aloe: I think it's a combination of each but I would guess that it would mostly be "do first sell later" as they have to work according to each individual root.

Commissioned deals means that the client specifies what he wants in advance but given that you don't know what you are going to get (the shape and type of root), it is very difficult to promise anything to the customer.

Mystery Trees and Pools

Before anyone read any further, try to answer the following question.

What you see is a pool of water sculpted into a pond using concrete. There are sticks above it forming what looks like the skeletal structure of a tent roof. Pardon the picture quality for it is taken in a moving car and I was sitting on the wrong side.

This was taken in a farm. Guess what's inside the pond?

Make a guess first and I shall reveal it as I trudge along with this entry.

As many were aware, I was in GuiLin over the weekend for a golf tournament but I decided to skip the first day of practice round to go visit a supplier there.

The factory was right at the outskirt of the city and you could tell almost immediately where the city ends and where the rural side starts. When we made a right turn off the main concrete road, we immediately found our car bouncing up and down the gravel path. Ah... the end of the city limits.

It was a small path with farm houses on one side of the path and farms on the other side, lining the entire length.

There were a few strange observations:
  1. You don't see anyone around. It seemed as if nobody was working.
  2. From what I can see, this is a orchard but unlike most orchards that I've seen, this one look very messy and unkempt. You know this is still an active orchard as it is still quite a long way away from abandonment. Very strange considering the trees are planted haphazardly when you would otherwise expect a neat layout for efficient harvesting and tight layout for maximum number of trees per square foot of land.
  3. Then there were these artificial ponds which initially I thought was a water reservoir for irrigation purposes. However, I was told otherwise as it was a pond for rearing.
"Rearing what?" I asked. "Fish? Shrimp? Tortise?"

"Nothing." my host answered matter-of-factly. "They were built to rear nothing."

As it turned out, the land that we were on was earmarked to be taken back by the Gahmen as the city continues to expand. The fact that we were on the immediate outskirts means that acquisition of the land is just round the corner.

Farmers are compensated according to the type of farm that they own. According to the compensation guidelines, fish farms and fruit orchards are entitled to a higher rate of compensation as compared to say, a piece of land for farming of certain crops e.g. lettuce or radish or yam.

As such, these farmers rushed to plant fruits trees and built ponds without really intending to genuinely farm it. These fruit trees and fish ponds were just symbolic representation of fruit orchards and fish farms respectively, which would translate into more moolah during the acquisition compensation.

hitomi: Frankly, I don't know enough to make a judgment call here. On one hand, it appears that the farmers are cheating the Gahmen, but on the other hand, it could mean that the farmers are trying to get back at the Gahmen in view of the less-than-fair compensation.

I realised this yesterday when friends came over and we were talking about the usual benefit frauders out there... and the mindset these people have (generations of people not working, therefore growing up on govt handouts and not thinking anything wrong with having holidays and plasma tvs courtesy of the govt and the rest of us).. v different from ours. I'd just found out yesterday that if one was a single mother and unemployed, the govt just gives you £500 cash (to help pay for baby expenses). not bad huh, given that there are people out there who work damn hard as supermarket check out people etc, ALSO to earn £500 after tax.

Pam: Again the never ending debate between the merits of a republican (conservative) vs a democrat (labour).

The ideal democrat is a better option IMHO where everyone is being taken care off i.e. no one left behind. However, the problem is that we have too many people taken unfair advantage of this and milking the system for all it's worth, at the expense of others.

Hence the republican's theory of meritocracy stipulates that you get what you work for i.e. the good old "a day's wages for a day's work" in the aim to leave behind those who chose not to keep up. However, in a world where nothing is perfect, it may mean leaving behind those who are geniunely unable to keep up.

Yellow W&W

I was at the ShenZhen airport heading to my boarding gate as I was leaving for the GuiLin tournament when I spotted this en route.

It's the Yellow M&M's long lost evil twin!!!

It's the Yellow W&W!!!!

Welcome to Spitland where we have fakes and imitations all over the place. While they say that imitation is the best form of flattery, l say lousy forgeries with the lamest of efforts is definitely hands-down the best form of insult.

Really bad job here as I cringed while taking a photo of it.

This reminded me of one of those "dumb blonde" jokes.

Q: Why was the dumb blonde fired from the M&M factory?
A: She rejected all the candies with the "W"s printed on it.

Hmm.... maybe it wasn't a joke after all.... hmm....

Chelsea + Balestier = Chelestiar

Yes, it's a guy's name and yes, that was how the name came about.

I rolled my eyes when I heard that initiall but I felt guilty after that. I will explain it later.

I saw the second half of this clip on Youtube last year and I only just realised that there was an earlier segment prior to the BandungVader-YellowTrunk "blind date" (man are they are going to have so many beautiful children together or what? ... *sniff*).

Anyway, we were having our usual banter on the CowboyBar when TK brought this clip to my attention via YoungJedi's blog.

So anyway, we have this guy whose name is strange enough to make you sit up and watch the clip closer and whoa! He is an author of a self-help book in dating! A love guru! Well, this guy, whom by now should have graduated med school (wah... doctor leh!), was picked to be the candidate to go on a blind date with the show's co-host.

My burning question is if Chelestiar knew that the program was out to make him a fool? I have a feeling that the poor chap didn't know how the episode would turn out after all the post-production editing. He was portrayed as some big super loser trying to date some TV personality and perhaps a cruel prank at his expense? And perhaps a weird way of poetic justice to take him to task for writing a dating self-help book and undertaking the role of the Love Doctor?

If you ask me, whoever behind this idea of getting Chelestiar humiliated on national TV ought to be shot and burn in hell.

Ok, so his looks is nowhere near Brad Pitt nor his charm within George Clooney's radar range. But for heaven's sake, he is a person with feelings and self-esteem too. Can these bigots be anymore insensitive?

Wait. Am I the only person to feel that Chelestiar has been undeservingly slighted. Have we become a world of insensitive bigots whose only source of joy comes from humiliating a fellow human being?

Come on. That was definitely not a "laughing with you" kind of situation. It was blatantly a "laughing at you" episode. Does MediaCorp need to stoop so low to score ratings?

There is no hope for local TV. God bless cable.
Yes, I admit when I cringed and rolled my eyes when I heard the name initially but you know what? All rolled eyeballs will roll back to the front at the end of the day and if this person wants to be known as Chelestiar Kong, then so be it. I will respect that decision. Eyeballs only rolled back once. That's the rule. Accept the person for who he is. I believe he is a good person at heart and I think that counts for more than a caked-up face.

Then there is the YellowTrunked one. I believe he knows what he was getting himself into during filming and I would not comment any further. Besides, he is a veteran at bizarre publicity and I think he is old bird enough to hold his own.

I do not disapprove of the YellowTrunked's antics. If those were what he wanted to do then so be it. I am probably of the type where I would say "Hey you. This is the line with you on that side and me on this. As long as you do whatever the hell you want to do on your side, that is fine by me. I will not be interested and neither do I want to get involved but it doesn't mean that I disapprove cause I am in not position to  judge."

To each his/her own, I would say.

I mean, there are highlights, lowlights, but this?!?!?!? this must be a can't be real... or rather, these characters can't be for real!!! OMG OMG.... and on a related note, I just saw a student today, quite obviously asian... with blonde hair. it looked so fake (esp next to my secretary who is a REAL blonde)... it was ridiculous.

Pam: I believe that while the guy is for real, it is somewhat an exaggerated candidate for the sake of boosting ratings. The level MediaCorp is willing to stoop to is most disappointing.

I supposed to them, Blonde is fun and given the general conservative nature of Asians, perhaps they trying to make a statement. Actually there is also a Youtube clip of her getting a tattoo on her wrist. Her moniker in English translate to Snowfall and so she got herself a real tattoo of a snowflake. One of those symbols you find in the air-conditioning's "Cool" mode.

Sigh.... there is no hope for this girl.

Big Fish

Got an sms from the Towkay-neo of a nearby Teochew restaurant telling us to come down as they have a 200 Grouper for the weekend.

Initially, I misheard it as 公斤(kilogram) and was thinking holy mackerel! (grouper in this case), that is more than 3 of me!

Anyway, as it turned out, the sms said 200 which worked out to be 100kgs. Still a heck of a big fish by my count.

We got to the restaurant the following evening with the fish proudly on display. The official weigh-in stood at 134kgs (268 ).

How to eat this fish? Well, we didn't have a choice on account of the fact that this was a Teochew steamboat restaurant that specialises in Grouper. So what other way then to eat it steamboat style?

Before, anyone gasped how we were able to eat up the fish, we can't. The fish was meant for the restaurant's weekend business. We were told that the fish was originally planned for Friday, Saturday and Sunday but given that business was so good. The fish won't make it past Saturday's dinner crowd.

The fish was fresh and very juicy. The skin itself is about 1/2 inch thick and chewy. Alas the highlight of the night was the last course where everything inside the steamboat was scooped up and in their place, white rice, ginger, and lotsa pepper to make porridge.

Very sweet.

Something about Grouper or in Ch1nese 石斑鱼 here. Some people spell it as Garoupa or Groper but essentially, they all point to the same fish sans the sub-species variations.

One may ask that a grouper of this size would have been rare and wouldn't it risk extinction, given our idiotic tendency to over fish? Fortunately, big groupers are common and this particular sub-species of the grouper family is not on the endangered list. Furthermore, now that their natural enemy's, the shark, population is fast being decimated as a result of an over active sharks' fin trade, this grouper sub-species population is set to boom.

Unfortunately, this can't be said for their cousin, the Goliath Grouper, which is currently classified as Critically Endangered. These GCs can go all the way up to 700+kgs and the good news is that the population numbers are starting to look good, albeit slow. Let's keep our fingers' crossed.

The Sushi Girl II

I have decided to declassify my earlier post "The Sushi Girl" and removed the password protection. So there. Knock yourselves out.

The Guy

It's been 2 months since Frank returned to Ta1wan and we haven't heard from him since. Not even a phone call or sms. We don't even see him on MSN either. To think we treated him like one of us and it is just weird that he vanished into thin air.

I can't help but feel that he has severed all ties with us and to think we threw him a farewell bbq the night before and making him promise to return after his national service stint (yes, he passed out again after 2 beers and no, we didn't invite The Sushi Girl this time).

Had it been any other person, I wouldn't have bothered with a second thought but here we had was a super nice guy who was warm, friendly and sweet until your toilet bowl gets infested with ants. This behavior from warm to Zero Kelvin cold has certainly taken us aback.

I asked the rest of the gang this question.

Was Frank a phony act from day 1?
Granted he was the only one not related to any of us and worked for one of our family businesses, we never did make that distinction (as in you employee, us employer) and treated him as part of the family. Heck, we even thought of pairing off with one of the sisters!

Anyway, I applaud him for the great pretense for he certainly had me fooled for 1+ year.

I don't think this guy will return to our lives any time soon, if ever.

The Girl

Hong disappeared shortly after as we found out that she left the sushi shop. It wasn't all that big a deal as restaurant staff turnovers are very common anyway and it is not like we are friends. Frank and her. Yes. She and us? Er.... not really.

Well, as fate would have it, we bumped into her again 2 weeks ago at another sushi restaurant and as we found out later, she left the old shop to come to the new one where the boss of the new restaurant poached her over with a managerial post and a better package.

Well, the new restaurant was so-so and not much different from the old one as far as food is concerned. Granted that the place is bigger and the decor is nicer, those external factors can only hold your interest for so long. Hong was kind enough to give us 40% discount (opening week promotion) that evening but even so, the bill was higher than if we were to dine at the old restaurant (20% discount over there for regulars customers).
So I guess if we are not going to return to this new restaurant anytime soon, I can take her off my book for now.

Hence, my decision to release The Sushi Girl into the open as I don't feel a need to protect their identities anymore since (a) nobody in my Spitland vicinity reads this and able to link it back to them and (b) I don't care since they no longer exist in my book?

Anyway, carrying on from that fateful night, nothing happened, much to the disappointment of everybody. Frank really really passed out that night. Wimp.

Nothing much was said about the morning after but I can only imagine the awkward conversation consisting of "Good morning.", "Bye, I'll see you around." and "I'll call you." in no particular order.

Oh well, like a bad chart-topping song like Macarena, Lambada or Lemon Tree. It came. It stayed. It left. It forgotten.

Sian XMM Episode XI

I was having dinner the other night with Jean , Joyce, Lex and Gary at Marina South for steamboat.

We ate rather heartily until Jean complained that she better stop cause she felt that she was getting fat.  Joyce disagreed as she felt that Jean was nowhere near fat and sought me to side with on this opinion.
To which the following conversation ensued...

Joyce: Eh. *pointing at Jean*, she not fat right?

Jay: Aiyah.... one thing I learn is all girls think that they are fat one. Regardless. Even the anorexic and bulimic ones.

... then I went further with "exagerration mode" +ON to full power...

Jay: Even those African refugee women nothing to eat for days, weak until collapse on the floor liao....
Jay: *pause for effect* .... they will still ask "Am I fat?" *


It was an awkward silence for like half a second as Jean and I rolled eyes at each other.

* WIN *

Aiyoh... this girl har.... sibeh cute.....

* Ok ok.... I know it's very mean to be making fun of the refugees' plight. To that I am sorry. I take back all the Ethopian jokes as well.

Who Is My MP Ah?

The Sunday morning that I was back in Singapore, we drove down to Ghim Moh market for breakfast. I was soooo looking to eating all the home food from Nasi Lemak to Otak to Prata to Kopi-O Gao.

As I was driving, my wife pointed to the banner on the lamp post.

Wife: Eh. I think I know who our MP is liao. *pointing at the banners*

Me: Who? (At this point, I haven't noticed the banners yet... my mind was preoccupied with all the food I was about to stuff myself with.)

Wife: Naaiiiirrrrr.... the Indian guy on the banner lor. That Tharman guy.

Me: Orh. Really har?

Wife: Yah. Yah. I think our constituency is Ulu Pandan. See the banner there say "Ulu Pandan". I think today is "MP Visit Ghim Moh" residents day or something.

Me: Ok, I learned something new today. All these days of walkovers and election boundaries anyhow draw here draw there, GRC anyhow sukah sukah zone here zone there. It is good to finally know who our MP is. I thought we last time is Ayer Rajah GRC one? Now back to Ulu Pandan har?

As it turned out, Mr Tharman Shamugaratnam was the VIP of the day and not our MP.

In other words, we still don't know who our MP is and one more thing....

..... we also don't know where we are as there is no such constituency named Ulu Pandan anymore.

Wah lau. hahahahhahaa.. I know how to pronounce his full name sia. Tharman Sharmugaratnam (spelling correct or not I don't know). He came over to my school's opening ceremony and we had to listen to his name a zillion times.
Anyhow, I don't even know who's my MPs la. And I live in Singapore the whole time. But but but.. I know which constituency I'm from! Better than nothing la hor? =)))

Ollie: His name isn't that difficult as long as you are able to break it down. It's quite a mouthful though, but it is still relatively easy for me.

I wanted to go find out what my constituency is but gave up the idea after like 1.3 seconds, thinking that they are going to rezone and rename it anyway. So why bother?

The woman who roamed around singing, yes I remembered her but are you referring to the mother or the daugther? Apparently, 2 also a little not so normal and I believe they are still there. They may be a little "xiao" but totally harmless :)

Old Beng: Wah kaoz.... there is 2 of them? I didn't know that! I supposed I refer to both of them bah...... have you ever seen two of them appearing together at the same time?

I moved to Ghim Moh side in 1980. I supposed it the mother that I have seen. She has a daughter? Who the hell is the father???

Yes, I have seen both of them together. The last time I saw them was like 1 year plus ago and usually it is the daughter who sings. My guess is that the mum is about 50+ and the daughter 30 +/-, me no good in guessing women's ages.

Who is the father? Not me!!!!!!! (Must faster clarify) Just joking la, I really don't know.
They are quite harmless except once I saw the mother scolding the daughter.

Everton: If you look at the second picture, you will see a building with a blue roof in the background. That's Ghim Moh Secondary School. They have since built a multi-storey carpark in between.
