The Trials, Victories & Adventures of Los PaulOS

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. ~ 1 John 4:18

Mustafa's .. .Sounds Like an Arabian Night's shop

True enough to what it sounded like... Mustaffa's has everything you ever need

from Groceries to Jeweleries to Electronic Goods to Clothes to Cosmetics to Cars and even a Mustafa's Hotel/Motel (in case you get tired)... We did some window shopping etc, I didn't buy anything.. Gabe did go and look for currency exchange rates, Luke and Chris bought some component cables... I just window shopped...

*en route to Mustafa's I caught a candid shot of Gabe*

Back to What Happened In Singapore

So after doing the Nintendo Stuff and snapping pix of legoland, we went back to my car. On the way the weather turned nasty all of a sudden, with ash being blown from stuff that was being burnt in old oil drums. The clouds gathered and threatened to rain down on us. We hurried our pace towards my car in order for us to go grab some lunch.

Pix of the weather..

Trapped In the Dungeon of Tower Longshanks: My Rescuer

But... a valiant Knight (Locksmith Eric who works on Sundays).. heard my calls.. (well actually Lord Vader called him, because Lord Vader couldn't open the door)

Next a series of videos.. of what my rescuer did and what my captors did while I was being rescued

He drills a hole in the door to knock out the lock (note you hear whistling in the background)

Meanwhile the captors are fooling around

Lord SurfGod playing with his (or actually talking & whistling to) Nintendo DS.
While Lord Vader pokes fun and Luke...

More sights of the captors fooling around

In the meantime, Darth PaulOS is being set free.. and rescued.. the lock is broken.. and he runs for freedom.. (note: The Eye in the keyhole)

Another Singapore Roadtrip!!

Chris and I have been planning this trip for a few weeks now, and at last I'm here! In Singapore, to see Gabe before he leaves for further studies in UK.

So, after work on Friday, I packed my bags and drove to Chris' (SurfGod) place. We had earlier arranged to leave at 2am. But we changed our plans to leave at 4pm. So SurfGod, Luke (surfgod's bro) and I tried to sleep at 11pm. I couldn't sleep very well, I don't know why, I prayed to sleep and prayed for my cell members etc etc.. and I still could not sleep until about 1230am. I got up at 330 am and woke the boyz up and left at 4pm promptly.

I drove from Setapak till after the Sg Besi toll, and then I let SurfGod take over, not before stopping at the Mobil station to get some snacks. ha ha ha... He drove all along the highway till Ayer Keroh. We made good time, approximately 1 hour 10 min from Sg Besi toll to Ayer Keroh R&R. Then after a "pit stop" Luke took over the wheels. He drove all the way till the Esso before the Immigration point. Ha ha ha .. so I literally was driven all the way along the highway. We reached the Immigration at about 750pm. After clearing Immigration on both sides (we had to get a new Autopass for my car).. we only reached Gabe's place at 840am, dumped our stuff in his house.. and then we went for breakfast at this place near Bukit Timah, had some Nasi Lemak and Roti Canai.

We then went back to Gabe's place to chill and "leech" of his neighbour's wireless network.

Then .. we again.. went out to Sim Lim to get Luke's Nintendo DS sorted out. It had a "lazy" pixel. .. so in short it was a defect. So we went to get it replaced at Sim Lim Square, but we were directed to go to Middle Road (about 5 min walk) to see the distributor at Fortune Square/Plaza. We trudged along and reached the place and found the office. Got the Nintendo DS replaced, but what was funny was this.. the gal (office administrator-sales person) told us to go to the Computer Fest in Suntec City. She said "Go there lah, got pretty promoter girls with short skirts there!".. I must say that I was shocked. This is one lady speaking about her own gender. Man... she thought we were "cheap"...
But Gabe and I joked "These 2 (SurfGod & Luke) are computer geeks, give them a choice between girls and computer stuff.. they'll choose computer stuff!" ha ha ha ha..

To me.. I think it wasn't something really good for one lady to be speaking about her gender in that manner.

Anyways, we left and walked back to my car parked at Sim Lim Tower.

Zero to 200 in a few seconds

A couple had been debating buying a vehicle for weeks.He wanted a truck.
She wanted a fast little sports-like car so she could zip through traffic around town.
He would probably have settled on any beat up old truck, but everything
she seemed to like was way out of their price range.

"Look!" she said. "I want something that goes from 0 to 200 in just a few seconds.
Nothing else will do. My birthday is coming up so surprise me!"

For her birthday, he bought her a brand new bathroom scale.

Nobody has seen or heard from him since!!!!!!

Moral of the story :
You can be funny, but.. not too funny..
lest you think being 6 feet under is funny too. ;)



I've been posting a new blog.. but each time.. the side bar gets pushed way down to the bottom of the blog.. what gives? hmm
