The Clubhouse

So, we have a club house now. We, would be me... and the 'gang'.

The gang is an amoeba like organisation with people coming and going (usually, going to KL), but these days it generally consists of the following 20-somethings and 30-somethings:

Capes, Tats, Romz, Boon, Jobe, Fon, Hockster, Girly, Ronz, Elmengster, Flo, Paddios, Big J, Rubybaby, Jen, Khimmy San, Eric, Cha boh and some dude named Chiet.

Our satellite members in Kl that I can think of are:
Eds, Suet, Bitch & Barney

These are the guys I usually play Dungeons & Dragons with, have crazy booze parties with, have round table sessions with, and get lost in toilets with after I pass out drunk.

My goblok cousin Capes has been a key part of this group ever since the 'DOT m y' days when a few of us met through a non-profit internet/computer assocation thingy with high ideals. It has devolved to what it is today. MUAH HAHHAHAHA. More power to us.

And I'm working on getting Daphne inducted. Just have to think up an 'induction ritual' now and pass it off as a long-standing rite of passage. (Hoping Daphne won't read this post).

The rite will undoubtedly involve Daphne drinking herself blind! Who's with me? Say 'aye'.

So we used to just gather in front of this cybercafe in Fettes Park called Netcity, our friend being a manager of the chain. However, ever since Edgar aka Jobe fell asleep drunk in the Netcity toilet... (very gross) we thought... a clubhouse be a good idea (very cool).

And now, in the past month... it has come to be!
We now have a double storey semi-detached house in Lembah Permai, with enough garden space to wedge in about 8-10 cars. We have a few mascots (Meng's cat 'Snowball', Jobe's snake and a fish). Snowball roams freely, Jobe's snake is confined to his quarters and the fish, I just heard, moved into its brand new pond that the guys finished digging up last night.

We have a foosball table. I'm dying to get my hands on a pool table. And soon...

Project : Make Terrain for RPG Table-top
Project code : T4TT (Terrain 4 Table Top)
Project leader : Capes
Commencement : When i have at least 3 or more people signing up
Please sign up :
1) Jobe <- Styrafoam supplies and random landscape effects. Methods may prove destructive, and possibly hazardous.
2) Fon, will provide epic level colossal fiendish cat
3)Meng<- styrafoam and any genaral help....>
4)RonZ <- Smoke & Fire / Sound effects
5)Gayle <- Paints and random poundin' (not necessary with a hammer)
Thanks for the response!!
Will get tarted(pun intended) in organising days and EQ needed to build shit up. Or down. No, Rons, we cannot use smoke or fire....sound effects...maybe...
  • First project :
  • Elminsters Tower!!
  • Difficulty : Easy
  • Needs : A colour laser printer (or access to one) (Boon? Jobe?)
  • Mounting Board (to stiff things up) 180g simili paper will be perfect (Capes ninja from office)
  • Glue (not the epoxy resin kind, the average superglue will do)
  • Scissors (not Edward) or Penknife works
  • PDF plans (will mail to whoever can print)
Attached below is the Final product and basic guide. Of course this project is opened to "mods". What are we if not "modders" We must mod.
*mod = modify

And I just realised how nerdy we really are.
Really wish I had a camera to document this project. Anyone out there wanna buy me one?

A Girly Drunken Afternoon

Laundry OCD

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

It's a fickle thing. It doesn't mean that I'm a neat freak. No, it's not that. It means that certain things tweak me the wrong way. And I'm only a mild case, with infrequent symptoms.
  • Like turning the lights on, then off, then on, then off... to make sure it really was off.
  • Like making sure all my appointments are written in my diary otherwise I simply cannot function because I don't truly believe that the appointments are real unless they're written down. Even when the appointment is over & done with, knowing it wasn't written down beforehand nags at me.
My best friend Shirley once threatened to throw my diary at me cause I wanted to 'pencil in' a coffee date with her at Gurney Plaza while we were riding the elevator... at Gurney Plaza.

  • Like trying to find lighter gas refill. Wasn't even my lighter. The owner was like 'to hell with that' after the first shop. And I went, "Nooooooooooo." "NOOOOOOOOOO let's go here, come along. Nope. Yeah. Let's try here too." And yeah we finally found it, and I was happy. And Daphne was pointing at me, and shaking her head, giggling and repeating "OCD. OCD, man. Dude you were on a mission. Hahahaha."
  • Like when I accidentally left my exercise ball at Starbucks. Despite knowing that my friend who works in MPH was going to retrieve it for me, I made Daphne drive over there with me anyway cause I'd feel really shitty if I lost it and knew I myself didn't attempt to physically go over there to retrieve it. So we went. And sat in the car waiting. I felt good just being within the vicinity of it.
And once I parked the car, after all the hyperactive caffeine induced chatter and laughing and praying my stuff didn't walk away on its own two legs, I said to Daphne in a tragic undervoice...

"You know. I wasn't always like this babe."

I get greeted by shrieks of laughter.
*wry look*

((All I can say to Daphne now is... what's up with not buying a new lighter for the longest time cause you felt like you're being a traitor to your old favourite one that broke? Eh? *poke* ))

And then in the car, I continued to story Daphne about my Laundry OCD. Which is peculiar. Because before I moved back home, I was never afflicted with it. But one day while hanging out my laundry, my mum passed this disease on to me.

I hung my clothes with whichever clothes pegs were to hand. And then she looks at me and tut tuts. She takes the damn thing from me, and then removes the green peg... and replaces it with an orange peg... to match the other peg. "See? Matching coloured pegs," she says, damn pleased with herself.

I laugh my arse off at her. I go, "Oohh OOh look ma, look what I'm doing." And then purposely switch the colour of the pegs just to irritate her and make her laugh.

And then the strangest thing happened. I squinted and paused. And made them the same colour again.

And I've been that way ever since. Worse. It's not just limited to the colour of the peg. But the type. And the size. And and and and it's political affiliations even, if it HAS to come to that!!!!!!!!

Let me show you.

This is where it gets ugly.

I feel shame.

But you know, the slim hangers are for like T-shirts and stuff. And the bloated oval ones are for like shorts. And the huge bloated ones are for like, jeans and undies and stuff.

And and and. The average pegs are for regular clothes. The bigger pegs are for jeans and heavier clothes. And the long pegs are to clip collars together around the top of a hanger to make sure they don't get out of shape! And those cute old fashioned woody pegs are for hanging stuff out on a regular laundry line - like towels and socks.


And delicate wash bags are for like delicate clothes and girly clothes with those tangly long bits. And I have round 'shaped' bags to keep my bras in shape and to make sure my heavy studded-belts don't knock all my other clothes senseless.

And I do 5 loads.

  • Normal whites. (Regular soap + softener + normal spin cycle)
  • Normal coloured. (same)
  • Jeans. (Just soap. No softener. And normal spin cycle)
  • Delicate whites. (A little less of that harsh soap. Softener. Delicate cycle)
  • Delicate coloured. (Same)
Now I know my friends laugh at me about this. But am I really the only one who does this?

Thursday, September 06, 2007


So I was talking to Daphne today about my dilemma.

I said, "Babe. Should I send that follow up email? I didn't get any response from my original mail you know although I have evidence that it was received and read. So you know, to drive my point home kinda thing and to encourage a response from the follow up one? I mean shall I be dogged about it till a new result is received. I'm half a mind about it."

And she was like, "Babe."

"You send the ball over to his court right. And he's supposed to send it back. And is it that important anyway that you need it back... that you end up doing all the work in the end?"

"I mean, picture this. You send the ball over."

"Then you actually walk over to the other side and bring it back."

*significant pause*

"AND Then you send the ball over again. And then you go again and bring it back."

"Send it over. Bring it back. Send it over. Bring it back."

*Daphne gives me a look*


Muah hahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!!!!

I think to myself... no one's ever put anything to me quite like that. Not only was it hilarious while being wonderfully forthright. It was instantly convincing & a ridiculous enough image for me to say, "Hell yeah. Fuck that shit." Sometimes, all the psychobabble just takes too long.

Finally, Daphne quips...
"It's your O.C.D. again isn't it?"

Tollbooth Aaron impersonates Chiru

Tuesday, September 04, 2007


Daphne: *reads blog*

Daphne says: what is "salad is a cargo you could do?"


Portable Pamper Pole

The Portable Pamper Pole.


Say it with me.... Porrrtabuhl Pamper Pohhhl.

No no, you've gotta get your mouth round those syllables baby!

Pohhhr-ta-buhl Pahm-pur PohhhhL

Good. Now, cross your eyes slightly and try to drool a little bit.... "portable pamper pole."

mm hmm, that's it... now put your hands out like this - like you're a Velociraptor.... yup, and hop... no no, bounce gently on the balls of your feet.

yup yup that's it..... "portable pamper pole"


No, there's no point to this post.
But ask Tollbooth Aaron for a demonstration & his story about the Portable Pamper Pole.


Tollbooth Aaron has a stalker. Tollboth Aaron has a crazy chinkaloids stalker.

muah hahahaha

Picture this:
Girl passed out on road at KPM apartment carpark.
Tollbooth Aaron renders help.
Girl regains consciousness eventually, and....


Fast forward... and picture this:
Girl gets helped up to her apartment.
Clutching Winnie the Pooh, swaying on the sofa... staring into space.
Tollbooth Aaron cleans her wounds, and eventually manages to leave after confirming her lucidity, closing door behind him.

Tollbooth Aaron visits guardhouse on a prior errand.

Leaves guardhouse, visits girl one last time:
Door is open, Tollbooth Aaron feels fear.
Readies fist weapons, initiative +1
Rounds the corner and behold...

Girl standing in the middle of room gazing up trance-like at spinning ceiling fan.

"Woi" Tollbooth Aaron breaks girl out of her reverie.
Counselling 101 ensues.
Tollbooth Aaron offers name card, just in case - for his Chaotic Good has kicked in, although True Neutral is urging him to get the hell outta there.

Tollbooth Aaron goes home. Goes to sleep.
Girlfriend returns.
Phone rings. Yarrr.

Crazy girl be calling. Conversation goes something like this:

Tollbooth Aaron (TA) : Are you okay?
Crazy Girl (CG): Yes, I just wanted to say thank you and apologise for what happened. Do you have a girlfriend?
TA: Yes but she's not around right now, it's okay we can talk if you need to talk.
CG: ohhh you have a girlfriend. Ohhh.... I cannot talk to you. I'm embarassed, no I cannot.
TA: No, no it's okay.... are you alright? If you need someone to talk to I consider you a neighbour so it's fine.
CG: Oh, oh...

*mindless dialogue, fast forward*

CG: Oh, so do you have a girlfriend?
TA: *blink blink* uh. yes, I do.
CG: Oh, like that I 'pai seh' i cannot talk to you....

*mindless blather, fast forward again*

CG: Oh, so you have a girlfriend?
TA: *cross eyed* yessssss, i have a girlfriend. but are you alright? do you have anyone, your friends to come and visit you make sure you're better or what?
CG: oh yeah, uhh yeah tomorrow...

*mindless blahdiblah... you know the drill*

CG: Oh, uh. So you have a girlfriend huh?
Ok you have a girlfriend I don't want to talk to you.


*Daphne & Gayle singing*
Tollbooth Aaron has a stallllllkerrrr.

Working Stiffs (Goblok Roadtrip Epilogue)

But you ask, where's the third Goblok?

Ahhah! All I can say is.... the boy went back to taking it from behind. HAHAHAHAHAH.

But yeah, Aaron's in this picture too.
Instead of being the star in them, Aaron returned to being the guy behind them.

"Encounters with the Selvibush" (Goblok Roadtrip diaries)

The journey home!!!!!

Of course, one can never take enough pictures. An impromptu photoshoot (with props) at the first rest-stop (also our Tongkat Ali coffee stop) was called for!

Behold, the Selvibush has been immortalised!
More than one traveller at that rest-stop thought they were on candid camera from just watching us have at it with the Selvibush.

One petrol stop, more snapshots and a bizarre John Travolta impersonation later...

... and we were home sweet home.

The End

"Poke" (Goblok Roadtrip Diaries)

We'd dropped Daphne off, made our campus visit to Brickfields college and were trying to find our way to April's place. The cracks were seriously starting to show.

At a red light, I playfully poke Aaron's cheek and make a noise something like a 'balloon fart'.
And then Aaron, he says....


shrieks of laughter. hysterical tears. it's like that for 10 minutes.
I completely cracked from lack of sleep and just way too much coffee.

After finally getting ourselves un-lost, both Aaron and I promptly passed out... and were refreshed in the evening for a night out at Heritage Row... only to pick on rhythmless chinkaloids performing traumatic dance movements at the Sunshine club.

And then joined up with none other than Jay, 2006 Cleo Bachelor number 12 himself *snigger*... and continued making complete arses of ourselves.

... but creditable effort was made to posh ourselves up for pictures...

Of course - Aaron, being a man's man scored with...

a sakai.

And so here we are... 3 Gobloks, a bar + 1 sakai (*cough* I mean, tribal type singer dude).

Tollbooth Aaron (Goblok Roadtrip Diaries)

This picture's so good I had to post it again.

Think 'Tickle Me Elmo'. The 'Tollbooth Aaron' stuffed doll comes equipped with a Starbucks Machiatto in one hand, and snazzy one liners that only become audible within a 1 meter radius of any toll plaza.

"Live long and prosper."
"May the force be with you."
"Is Penang down the road? Here? This road? Sure? Okthankuvrymuchahhhhhh"

... are just some of them.

Soon to be added to the Tollbooth Aaron's vocabulary are:

"Woot I'm coming."
"Salad is a cargo you could do."

The journey began with a stop at the e-Gate starbucks for the 3 Penang Gobloks who'd barely had any sleep the night before... Daphne, Aaron & yours truly.

Fast forward 1 hour into the trip, the coffee's all gone. My Chemical Romance has been blasting on the CD player (indeed, it blasted the entire trip) and countless motorists have been made fun of.

At one of the first few tolls, Aaron grabs the toll ticket and solemnly pronounces to the tollbooth person... "May the force be with you" before zooming off to shrieks of caffeine induced laughter.

The pressure builds, and Tollbooth Aaron is forced to perform, nay... to raise his standards even... at every toll stop thereafter or suffer the scorn of his female companions. More coffee is called for.

All in all, 3 Starbucks beverages and about 4 Nescafe's in a can were consumed for the 4 hour journey.

The Goblok Roadtrip

3 Gobloks, a camera and a KL weekend.


My arse is blue black from all the self-kicking.

Mandarin karaoke.
A drinking joint called.... D'Joint.
Drinking games with dice over a low table.
Rainy Night.
No dancing.
I could've been elsewhere having a.... ahem. Well.

Next time I'll know better.
*handcuffs self to Daphne*
