In case it doesn't sound very familiar, Orange Dance Club is situated right behind the Borneo Baruk Club, on Jalan Kia Peng. Well, not like thats gonna help either....
Worse is, i've never been to Orange. But the map i sought from Street Directory, plus some diriving experience now in KL, and the green light projections on a huze vertical 'bunting' placed right outside the club, helped me locate the place.
There was also a massive projection placed outside the club entrace which had no audio and was a documentary-like video featuring one or two local acts. I think i saw kinky blue fairy featured on it too. Had completely no idea what it was about.
On the inside, they placed Heineken light boxes at the entrance - very rave-looking, very energy-emitting, very sharp bright light boxes. i like.
When i got there at nearly 11pm, there was an alright crowd, not that great but substantial. So i could easily wiggle my way through to the dance floor which was then still vacate. Maybe about 25 people, or less. It grew eventually though.
The dance floor gave my sight access to the electro setup at the dance floor. There were four revolving crosses hung on the ceiling with light projections fiercely beaming at them. The DJ console was placed higher than ground level so the DJs were prominent to the audience. There were also projection screens behind the DJ console with artistic laser images. Very nice electro ambient to compliment the performance.

So pissed, he can make a man strip and put his underwear over his head, by just looking at the man.
Because his son Muhkriz lost in the contest for the top post in UMNO Youth.
He got trashed by the corrupt Khairy and even Toyo the joker got more votes than him. So either he's (Muhkirz) more corrupt than Khairy & Toyo hence not favoured by the vote casters, or he simply didnt pay enough to garner the necessary votes (assuming that Khairy paid his way to the top post, like Mahathir claims)
So today Mahathir made a fucking big fuss because his son lost.
Well he just doesnt realize that whether its Khairy or Toyo or Muhkriz on the Throne, UMNO Youth WILL BE corrupt. It's just a matter of who sits on the top and cuts the pie first.
And that old man is just trying to destroy the country he built so it goes down to the grave with him. Imagine the international press going
"Malaysia: Ex PM fucking with PM, because Ex PM's son lost to PM's son-in-law in battle for top post"
Now ladies and gentlemen, my fellow citizens of Malaysia, this MALAYSIA, is the country we live in. God bless all of you

They act cute so much it becomes a norm to see ppl act cute in Japan. Such a norm it can become contagious. In the sense that even the tourists take the opportunity to very seriously act cute (without having to be ashamed) for once.
Doreen Tee's act cute pose:
Now if you think only the girls got it, NOooooo. Even my room-mate got it, Jerry Lim. And really badly. He became seriously addicted to acting cute, he acted cute in all the pictures he posed for.
Paul got it too
Anyway, i was very lucky to have had the chance to have dinner with Asia's young entrepreneur of the year, Timothy Tiah. At Mizu TTDI.
I must say i liked this restaurant, the service and all was pretty good. And it certainly reminded me of Japan. Well it is a Japanese restaurant afterall but it just brought back all the memories
We walked into the restaurant and there were ppl yelling at us in Japanese from all angles - the bar, the door, the kitchen, with smiling faces though. So you guess, they're trying to greet you. heh
And they were all trying to act cute, even when they were not posing for pictures.
We then ordered our meals and the apertizers were served first. And this again reminded me of Japan. In Japan there is this very bizzare culture of getting very obsessed with decorating food. Like they can craft out a cute Ultraman figure with just ginger just so they can put it on a slice of fish so the fish looks more appetizing.
This is the apertizer we got in Mizu.
Now what's with Japan and being cute?

Today, the Liverpool supporters in our office have offered us Man Utd supporters to 'cross-over'. They hope that by the end of their campaign, they will have 2/3 of all the football fans in our company to put images of Torres on our desktop wallpapers.
But unlike Malaysian politicians, ive decided to stay with the Devils.
Advertising gone wrong
I was at Pavilion in KL on Sunday morning for breakfast.
And in the centre of the semi-high-end shopping mall, was a display of a Jaguar - a brand new looking jaguar, no longer with the very protruding, caddilac resembling bonets & trunks.
The car looked really fresh & caught my attention & made me wanna check it out .... until i saw a bunting that stood trembling next to the display car. Well, before i even start, its a bunting... and Jaguar. Nvm
I dunno if its just me but it says "Definitely premium executive car of the year". 3 adjectives to describe a car is too long? Just say 'Executive Car of the Year!' ?
And best is - its awarded by NSTP & Maybank. Yes, a print company & a bank.
Weird plastic models
When men are out shopping with the ladies(be it gfs or wives), the first thing they look for when they enter a boutique are the comfortable couches which are prepared for them.
And the men will normally try and keep a little sight on the lady so when she looks, you can quickly nod and pretend you're really interested.
One of the shops i entered (prada) and had to sit for particularly long, placed these 2 plastic models right in-front of the waiting couch. A headless one, and one wearing sunnies and has got no nose. Artistic? or ...
Pavilion has a food court if you go down down. I was surprised, but ive already had breakfast. But i wanted to check it out.
And after i walked pass some Asian restaurants & food shops i began to see a trend in these outlets. They are all trying to bring out the traditions of how the food is prepared, or at least a traditional outfit to cook the food.
Because, i think, the Chinese are just too kiasu, 'originality' becomes always a major factor in decision making. So if you can convince them that its very 'original', they'll pay the price for it.
This was the 'Cha Kueh' food shop displaying their brought-fwd-through-time cooks.
This was a Japanese restaurant, and they displayed their chef / kitchen-hand making Soba noodles with a stick.
Next time i start a chicken rice business, ill have a young boy chasing endlessly after a chicken at the front corner of the shop.
Work is on full steam.
I get so stressed ive many times dreamt about camping at the Murray River. When i was in Australia, we made many trips to what we term "the river".
To get really trashed at night, and just chill through the day in the bush, by the river and with no fucking worries. Tons of booze, and stuff you take in Australia when you're in Uni.. haha
I miss my holden and the caravan! And the boat rides on the river Jungle biking...

I thought the Malaysian government loves oil so much they coat all the streams, rivers and oceans in Malaysia with oil, build the empire state petronas twin towers, chill at the penthouse, smoke some marijuana and just admire how much wealth there is in Malaysia.
It makes them so blind they think we will end our year with only a 50K unemployment rate. Bullshit! As it is now, the unemployment rate is already more than 100,000. However, instead of focusing on the economy, they spend all their time over a hapless tree in Ipoh. Talk about fiddling while Rome burns.
Anyway, back to what i was gonna write, i was actually excited bout the rafting trip because i checked out videos on you tube and it looked pretty dangerous. i like. We were going for grade 4 rapids. They call a grade 4 rapid a banana fall or something i really cant remember.
Anyway, off we went in tight life jackets (for me at least) coz there was only 1 size - i felt really gay.
We had to pick up our pedals, shove and kill the invinsible stream monsters in front of us.
They were brutally man-slaughtered and their life jackets fell on the ground in front of us, we were victorious!
Wan Lih (far right) flexed her muscles watching me whack the stream monsters, showing her support. Lee Fen (2nd right) watched in horror.
The streams were now clear. Before we got on the rafts, we went for a stream ride to get ourselves acustomed to the water temperature, it was morning then so water was still pretty chilly.
We walked a kilometer up, walked down the mudy & slopy bank to get into the stream.
Threw ourselves in the water, with life jackets helping us stay on the surface, floated down the stream. We feasted our eyes on the lush rain forest, tuned our ears to the crickets, birds and the sound of nature, and breathed the air that is freshly produced from the surroundings, no carbon manoxide and and no shit like that. It was an enmeshing experience, fucking priceless.
I did it twice before we got on the rafts for the rough ride. We were split into 3 - 4 teams so enjoy the pictures of the different rafts.

They had nice projections on One Utama too, although i didnt quite fancy the spinning Guinness logo. I thought it would have been nicer BOLD, Stout & Still. The clover leaf at the side could have taken up the duty of animation.
