A Swedish Sunday

(the adventures of lazy thrill seekers on a rainy Sunday with a Swedish babe!)

Had this nice chance of living a Swedish Sunday with my senior and trusted sidekick (or am I his sidekick?!). Started of with a shot of vodka-orange juice for breakfast. (yeh...i'm getting wasteeedddd to often these days). Drove to Ikea for some succulent Swedish Hot Dogs! (that sounded weird...please erase everything from your mind!). While Volvo is a masterclass, I don't like Ikea very much. You have this feeling that the normal furniture stores has better variety and bargaining options. Or it could be that the Ikea store in Malaysia really sucks. One thing thats good about Ikea though is the colors! The furnitures and other materials are vivid and simple, but not enough to rekindle any memories or leave lasting ones. Spent a few hours there separating stuff from China and the rest of the world till we found out nothing much are left after that! I bought some FNISS pen holders (red, white and black) to get the parking coupon stamped for free. Good for that Ikea, I think more local stores should think in the same line. Even Tesco and Carrefour offer free parking. The IKEA Exit Cafe is a heaven for Swedish Hot Dog lovers. All of the 3 restaurants on the store offer a variety of Swedish traditional foods. Pity I cant eat the meatballs, but the hot dog itself is simply superb.

Realized yesterday there are so many good things about Sweden, most notably their babes! Her sleek sultry body, well build features, dressed in her finest makes any outing a memorable one. Not until you drive one...okay I'll stop here. Everyone knows about Volvo! A magnifik Swedish engineering, identifies instantly as being the safest car in the world, the experience is simply out of this world. Have you had a Volvo experience?

Ended the lazy thrill seeking (driving around in the car) with a trip to the central park equivalent of KL, home to the largest covered bird park in da whole wide world; The KL Bird Park. Didn't get to see any birds, it was raining but got this great snap. It's amazing to see how the artificial blend with the organic world. (More snaps in my Flickr)
Closure. So what does Sundays signify? Mostly I spend my Sundays worrying about Monday and the start of the dreaded work week. Honestly its a dreadful feeling thinking that the only truly free day of the week goes past so fast that you'll be back in office staring at the bloody pc in no time. Sundays should be spent remembering things, stuffs that you miss most and things you want to do. Just freak out, don't plan and head NORTH! Thats right, go back to the roots! (or izzit South?). Sundays during school days were routine, my school had a Sunday to Thursday week. So Saturdays were spent watching Saturday Morning Cartoon and making sure the school shoes dries! Not to mention to 'paint' some chalk (school shoe polish) so that the shoe looks pretty at least a few hours on Sunday, just to get through the assembly (before some ass comes and steps on it...arrghhh traumatic memories). As the days goes past, and years eats away your life, these weekend adventures become more official, weddings, festivals, movies and of course sleeping late. Gone are the Sundays, maybe its just the right time to bring back those nostalgic classic Sundays. Lets get back to that true meaning of a Sunday.

How did your Sunday go?

[-] Next week I'm planning a Japanese Sunday. Care to join me? Just pick a country you like and experience a Sunday going to places related to it!.
[+] Yesterday was Remembrance Sunday. God Bless the Lives of everyone who departed in an unjust past for reasons beyond our control.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
