  • Jennifer Aniston Hate Club

    I can’t believe I couldn’t find one online. Maybe I am just going about the search the wrong way. I key-ed in “i hate jennifer aniston”, “jeniffer aniston hate website”. And came up with nothing. But there is a “i hate angelina jolie club”.

    How dumb ass is that?

    I really don’t know why I don’t like her. I suppose HATE is a strong word to use. And I have not been brought up to HATE. My mum is a good mother – and did not teach me to hate. I write this in case she miraculously learns how to go online, and reads this. Of which she will then continue being the SUPER MUM she is and give me some money to spend.

    Back to Jennifer Aniston. I seriously think her claim to fame all started with the fact that she has gorgeous hair. Her hair is the picture millions of women take with to the hairdressers to say – I want hair just like that!

    BARF! BARF! Choke.

    But I do think she has great hair. And a hot body for someone her age.

    I am still so happy that Brad Pitt dumped her for Angelina Jolie.

    My sister tells me that evolutionary psychology will say that I really am a lot like her in reality, and probably have so much in common we’d be BFF’s if not for the fact that I see her as competition, hence my dislike for her!

    BARF! BARF! BARF!

    Then I thought – I am not going to spend anymore time searching for this Jennifer Aniston Hate Club. But if you do come across one – please share with me.

    If you would like to tell me otherwise why I should love her or give her a break since she’s almost 40 and has been dumped so many times since her divorce – please try to convince me.

    I am not being unkind nor hurtful. This is just my opinion.

    If you would like to add on to this post as to why you hate her too, you’re MOST WELCOME to do so.

    Oops… I forgot… I was not brought up to hate. I merely dislike.

  • Freaky! Growing meat without the animal!

    We’ve grown livers, bladders, hearts and blood vessels in labs for transplant.

    And now we’re going to grow a piece of meat for food?

    If it tastes just like chicken, or beef – but it was GROWN! Would you eat it? Would you?!

    It’s skipped the entire process from egg to chicken, or baby cow to big cow. BUT IT IS JUST LIKE, A PIECE OF MEAT, CULTURED AND TASTES JUST LIKE CHICKEN OR BEEF!

    Eating a drumstick from a chicken that was never an egg? That would eliminate the ‘chicken or egg’ debate of course!

    Eating steak that has never moo-ed?

    Ee-yew!

    I’m feeling kinda sick – and don’t think I could eat that.

    Ha! Says me who eats meat that has been slaughtered! Mercilessly? Mercifully?

  • VW Cars – The B#%tards!

    Yes, yes, yes. I know there is no need for name calling.

    This is the latest email I had to send to them. You can see why I may be frustrated!

    And I didn’t get a reply! Pfftttt!!!

    ~~~~~

    Dear Kelvin Khaw,

    I hope this email finds you well.

    It is also beyond my belief that I have to yet again write to you despite your assurance that – quote “we take pride in the products and services that we offer to our customers” and “we are confident that VW Cars, as a Volkswagen authorised dealer, will provide you with improved service for your future vehicle needs” unquote.

    I realised that the bottle opener had been removed from my car – about 5 days after I have got back my car. Perhaps this needed a service to for whatever reason you will then come up with to assure me.

    So it was early last week that Thomas the GM said he would be sending back the bottle opener.

    You must have guessed by now that I am writing in to inform you that no bottle opener has been returned.

    Not able to get hold of Thomas yesterday, and instead spoke to Robert who said the bottle opener will be returned yesterday – with a gift.

    Perhaps the delay was caused because he is picking out a gift. Such thoughtfulness. Please inform VW Cars that we do not need a gift. We just want the bottle opener returned.

    I think my entire experience with VW is focused on delay, procastination, and your inability to be time conscious. This must be the CORE of your service – that VW appears to be so confident about.

    I tremble in fear at the thought of my vehicle’s future needs.

    I am sure you appreciate my feedback and comments. Please do take time to look in to getting my bottle opener returned.

    As always, please be assured that I will be informing my family, friends and e-community of my VW experience.

    Have a nice day.

    Yours sincerely,
    Li Lian Kow.

  • “Are You Busy?” – Telephone Courtesy Lessons by Li Lian

    Pleaseeeeeeeee I beg of you, don’t ask me that question when you call me. Please don’t let that be the first thing you say, followed by ‘Hello’.

    Don’t put me on the edge or on the spot with that question.

    I suppose I am not a very nice person.

    Really?! Everyone is always BUSY doing SOMETHING. Even breathing is SOMETHING!

    So when someone calls me and after ‘hello’ asks ‘Are you busy?’ – I never know what to say! Because, if the person on the line just wants to chit chat, when clearly I am doing something, anything! more important than the need for idle chit chat, whatsit – just to catch up – then hell, yeah! I’m busy as a bee.

    Call me a lousy multi-tasker if you must, I cannot walk and chat on the phone at the same time. I cannot do anything! AND! chat on the phone at the same time.

    So, this catching up business – should be done over drinks, coffee or dinner – OR email, sms, an old-fashioned letter on fancy stationery, or messenger.

    However, if the person on the line requires something urgent or requires information, then I am never too busy! Everything else I can put on hold to give you my 100% undivided attention (since I cannot multi-task).

    And since you now have the urgent important information – go use it! No need to carry on talking to me on the phone with the sudden urge to ‘catch-up’. We can chit chat or catch up over – I repeat – over drinks, coffee or dinner – OR email, sms, an old-fashioned letter on fancy stationery, or messenger.

    I am just NOT! a chit chat on the phone person!

    If you want to call me to talk about your feelings – somebody had a baby, you’re getting married, you found THE ONE!, a break-up, a sudden sadness, a certain loss, a tragedy, just tell me up front – “I have news to share!”.

    I am all ears – you have my 200% undivided attention. But PLEASE! don’t start with ‘Are you busy?’.

    You would have had me at ‘Hello, I have happy/sad news to share’ or ‘Hello, I need this’.

    There you go! Telephone courtesy as defined by, yours truly, Li Lian Kow.

  • The Police Reunion Concert, Singapore Indoor Stadium – I was 1 In 10,000!

    Yes! I was one of the 10,000 people that were lucky enough to attend this concert. This is going to be their last EVER! performance once they are done with this tour.

    By the way – this post is late too. The concert actually took place on 4 February 2008. Same day as my favourite sister’s birthday.

    This 3 person band has been around for more than 30 years! Even though they were not in action for a couple of years in between. Well, between the 3 of them, they must be more than a century old.

    They are brilliant performers! Can you imagine, Sting, the lead vocalist/bassist could sing for almost 2 hours without tiring? The guitarist, when his hands were shown close up, had liver spots, the skin on his hands so thin and transparent his veins were showing and popping out – the hands of a very old person – and yet! He played his guitar and produced VERY GOOD music! He could dance at the same time too!!! This is so impressive!

    The drummer – WOW! moves with the speed of lightning! You have to try picturing, a very old wrinkled man with a head full of gray hairs drumming away with such speed and stamina and skill! Amazing! And he did so for 2 hours! He sure has got the MOVES!

    I am feeling faint and in a bewildered state from my memory of such a remarkable performance!
