My life as a Malaysian doctor in the United States.
Moral of the story: Beware of strange things you might find in my kitchen. They might not be what you think. I had thought this was wild rice that a friend left in my kitchen when she moved to Chicago. Apparently, no, this was pulut hitam my mom left in my kitchen a year ago.
This goof-up ranks up there with the green nasi lemak experience and the expired food incident. (with a lot of sugar, pandan essense and coconut milk, I was however able to salvage this into an acceptable dessert. Now I just have to convince my American girlfriend the carrots are meant to be there. Shhh...)

"What is that on your wrist??" It's a watch. A G-shock.After a while, I got tired of the questions. And the stares. I realized that people weren't admiring me and wanting to have my babies. They were looking at me with a sympathetic look. Like I was the short, ugly boy who couldn't afford a proper watch, and wore a sundial to school instead.
"A what???" Never mind.
"Does it do anything?" It tells me the time.
"I mean, besides that?" Well, you can make phonecalls with it. And pull up recipes. And when you had an itch on a hard-to-reach spot of your butt, this could scratch it for you too. And the blue light repels vampires and zombies and Thai ah-kuas.
Lesson of the day- The study is deemed valid if:
1) The results demonstrated is the desirable and expected results, and
2) The deputy PM said so
The methodology used is totally irrelevant. The result becomes statistically significant if p less than 0.05 (p=pride). Best example on Dr. Liew's Blog. Tomorrow, we shall talk about studying the effects of zero gravity on teh tarik, roti canai and the inverse numerical relationship between spending RM 3.5 billion carrying out that study and our politicians' IQ.

My first thought in that dreamy state was 'Who's Shireen, and when did I get her pregnant?'
"Shireen's in labour"
"Yes, higher up. Ugh. Hmm. That's it. Feel that? That's the prostate." Almost nonchalantly.
They're both 2-seater convertibles although the Benz is a hard-top convertible which is nice. I've never considered myself a fan of Mercedes; always thought of them to be Ah-Pek/Tauke cars that fat Chinese mean with gold bracelets drove (Generalizations, of course. I apologize if you drive a Benz and are not a) Fat, b) Chinese, c) A Tauke or Ah Pek). But the SLK is realll sexy. Then again, driving a Porsche is a class of its own.
And no, I'm not thinking about breaking up my relationship with Veronica. Not yet anyways. She treats me well. For now, this will be a pipe dream (but feel free to send me a cheque for this worthy cause).
