Malaysia 2009 – Part IV

So we were at my Gramps 80th Bday bash (haha – now THAT’S an overstatement), and during one of the courses, I noticed there was something funny in the rice dish we were having. It wasn’t a rice dish, more like a rice dish on a platter of assorted Chinese delicasies, but whatever it was, there was, unmistakably, a fly.

Now, the way the rice was presented meant that the fly had to have been cooked into the rice bowl – or, at least, crushed between the plastic, rice, and whatever the nutty stuff on top is.

Needless to say, my cousins and I were similarly grossed out – we only ate the parts of that dish that we liked, and yeah – that was that.

The next dish came and went, and the night continued on…

Happy Birthday To Me…

Oops. Yet again, this one’s a little late. Apologies.

Happy birthday to me, happy birthday to me…

It’s almost sad to think that I have to say happy birthday to myself on my own blog. The least you could do is comment this post 😉

In other news, I’m 18. Adult status means I can now drink (legally), vote (/care), and also be tried as an adult when I break the law (don’t plan to, but good to know nonetheless).

So… Have a cold one without me, and if you’re one of my facebook friends, be nice enough to say “happy bday” on my Wall. You’ll find my facebook profile link on the contact page of this blog, from the menu up the top.

My birthday wasn’t actually that bad. In the typical Benny Ling summary style, it was:

Wash, eat, go out with cousins to internet cafe to play Warcraft DOTA (some weird RPG/RTS thing, but I did manage to BSOD the computer I was playing on not once, but twice), go out with a different set of cousins to buy stuff, come home, eat, play Warlords and Scumbags with cousins, write some blog articles, sleep (nap only), go out for dinner at some wierd place, eat cake at home, watch Dragon Ball Z, write this post, sleep.

I guess that’s about it, but for now, I just have this one thing to say:

Cheers! 😀
