Two things happened last night.

.

.

so what’s it going to take, for you to REALIZE, it all.. could go away in a blink of an eye. It happens all the time.

.

.

Sometimes we forget.

Why?

Lack of contentment?

.

.

the first thing I’d do.. is thank the stars above.. tell the ones I love… I do..

.

.

Dont leave it until it’s too late.

Let this be a wake up call for me and those who care enough to appreciate what HE has given us.

Cravings, morning sickness and sour grapes…

Posted in Cars, Family, Friends, Models, Photography with tags , , , , , , , on March 17, 2009 by ari7474

Ello people…

 

Hmm.. what do you think of the title? Yes.. It has to do with my ex-GF. And yes.. it has to do with her 3rd pregnancy. 

I dont know why but for the previous 2 pregnancies, she never had any issues with morning sickness but this one.. wohoo.. She frequents the toilet to throw up more than a drunken person having tequila shots after 3am (not that I know anything about being drunk but stories from friends laa..) And NO.. Its not only in the mornings but the afternoons and evenings too. They should call it “all day” instead of just “morning”… 

So.. Let this be a warning to future hubby wannabe.. be prepared ya guys.. It’s not only the best part aje ok… hahahahaaaa…

Now, what else you may ask comes with pregnancy.. hmmm… Mood swings and cravings too.. Now, lets leave out the mood swings and chat about (in my wife’s mother tongue)… “Mengidam”. 

You see.. mengidam can come at any time. Her recent one came at 3am. 

“Baby.. I want Mozza Burger..”

I was like… “Now????”

“Yes.. Thanks baby.. I’ll wait for you until you come back..”

Goodbye sleep and hello A&W 🙂

 

According to my father, I have to try to fulfill her cravings as it’s not her but the baby. And the very next day.. she said she wanted to eat steak. Jake’s. Ok sayang.. Let’s go Jake’s. But when we got there..it was closed. So, we went to Victoria’s Secret.. eh.. wrong.. Victoria Station 😉

When our food came, she lapped up everything within minutes.. And when the waiter came..

not-yet

“Umm… Not yet.. Come back later…”

 

now-can

“Ok.. Now can clear the table…”

 

Hahahahaaa… She’s gonna be furious with me for posting this up… Hahahahaaaa…

 

Guys… we also have cravings too.. As for me..  Its speed. 

“I feel the need.. the need for speed..” (Top Gun style) wohoo… 

So, after starting up my very speedy “R”, off I went up to Genting with my good buddy Putra and his wife Shue. 

The ride up there was nice. Clear, cooling and my revs was always near the red line. While I was negotiating the corners at blinding speed, an Iswara (1.5cc) overtook me. Man, he was quick. Or.. was I slow..? Either way, I ignored him. Then, a Proton Persona overtook me too. This time, the guy at the rear seat was taking a video of me. Without wanting to look like a sissy, I gave him a nice V-tec sound from the engine but again, the Iswara was infront of me. All the way up, the Persona was shooting a video of me trying in vain to overtake the Iswara but cannot 😦 

Now fellas, that’s embarrassing. A 2.0 litre 225bhp monster lost to a 1.5 litre Iswara pushing maybe 100bhp.  But, me being a grown good looking adult, I’m not going to be all immature and try to prove a point and race on the road. It’s dangerous. So people, dont race on the road ok. Dont be sour grapes. Drive nicely and if you want to race, go to the tracks. (hahahaa… dah kalah, ada aje excuse..)

Anyway, we shot some pictures up there in Genting. Here’s to share some..

That’s Putra and Shue. Posing while having coffee at the Old Town White Coffee in Genting.

 

Nope.. I’m not done yet. 

“Why Ari.. why not done yet..?” 

Is that what you’re all saying..? Well.. last story ok. As some of you know, I entered a reality show called Double Exposure. It’s about photography. The reason why I entered it is because one of the prize for the winner was a chance to shoot a magazine cover. I really wanted that. Its something I’ve been catering my photography for. Now, the show ended already and they say it would be on TV soon. And the winner shot the Magazine cover already. I’m damn jealous. I feel like I can do it. I feel that nobody can beat me in photography. I feel… like I’m being a sour grape. A sore loser. And because of that, I did my own shoot just to release some stress.

Now peeps, I know in life, you cant have everything but could you all do me a favour and tell me if my shots below would make the cut if it were to be in a magazine. Honest answers please.. I’m a grown good looking guy.. I can take criticism..

Once again.. thank you for reading and spending your quality time on my blog. Even though I’m feeling down when I got booted out of the competition, I feel that someday, my pictures will grace the cover of a magazine. Someday.. Nite peeps.. 😦
