Marriage Counseling before Engagement?

We went to the Mega 10 Most Beautiful People event at Haze last Thursday. The place was relatively empty till around 9:30pm, but started filling in up until the start of the formalities at around 11:30pm. It’s funny. The event itself, or at least the program, lasted for 20 minutes I think. The Editor in […]

Male Competition

Written on May 24, 2008 from the Raven Archives: Last night, I bumped into a guy friend of mine at Barcode. He is one of my best female friend’s colleague, and an expat here in Taipei. We met around a month ago at another friend’s opening night, played darts and proceeded at every Taipei youngin’s […]

Ramblings about the Weekend

Over the weekend, I’ve met a handful of interesting individuals. That’s how life is, it surprises you when you least expect it. Last Friday, when my best gal friend and I thought that Barcode couldn’t get any more boring and were on our way down to call it a night, we surprisingly bumped into one […]

Surprise, surprise…!

Yesterday, I did all I can to avoid Barcode, everybody’s perennial hang-out place because I wanted to avoid “him” to which we have yet to call by any name save for M. For one, he has already extended an invitation last Friday night so I knew he was going to be there, and two, I […]

Facebook Blunder

Scenario: My friend had his “Facebook-themed” housewarming party this weekend. As a source of fun, he had: * set aside one “poking” room to place coats and bags (i.e., poking rhymes with coating)* people write their “status” as nametags* prepared a lot of booze and cocktails as part of the Booze Mail, and even had* […]

Do I Look Like the Yellow Pages…?!

Big sigh. This is the third time this week that some guy has asked me to take him out partying… Don’t they have any friends to do so? And do they think that I’m this crazy animal who’s invited to all the parties…?! To tell you the truth, I spend more time in a coffee […]

In Brief…

…because I have to sleep extra early today, I can only summarize what happened during this crazy weekend. Hopefully, I’ll have enough time in the week to post some photos. They’re pretty hawt! 😉 Friday: Had a nice local Taiwanese dinner featuring honey-barbecued goose liver at Yongkang street, before attending my friend’s Comedy Show at […]

Laos: Vang in the Vieng (Part IV)

I wanted to wake up early because I wanted to try one of two Vientiane’s most famous bakeries, both of which were situated near the fountain. There was the Scandinavian Bakery, which failed to appeal to me at all. Maybe it’s because of the sheer size of the pastries! For someone who is watching their […]

Laos: Jewel of the Mekong (Part I)

Just got back last Wednesday from an awesome Laos trip. It was great — despite receiving a handful of calls from work, Laos was as far away from Taipei as possible. It was indeed a world of its own, living on its own bubble. Unfortunately, when I share with friends here where I’ve been, I’ve […]

A Marathon Weekend — Again!

This weekend absolutely rocked! Our company had our year-end Christmas Party last Friday at one of the top hotels in Taipei. Red envelopes were given to every employee, and over NT$1 million was given out via lucky draw. Mind you, I didn’t win a single penny, and I was stuck outside helping out in reception, […]

Another Crazy Marathon Weekend!

Since last Tuesday, I’m 27 years old! *Shudders* NOT a good thing when a day before your birthday, you bump into an acquaintance, who after finding out you’ll be turning 2-7 the next day nonchalantly comments: “Oh, so you have 3 more years left…” I shot her a look. “3 more years of what?” “Well, […]
