a moment's splendour on the beaches of Varadero
allow me to reminisce
indulge me
do not stir me now

For a book that espouses a way of life that introduces the reader to acronyms like:
"PUA" - pick up artist
"AFC" - average frustrated chump
"ASD" - anti-slut defence
"IOI" - indicator of interest
"MPB" - male pattern blindness
"RAFC" - reformed average frustrated chump
"SS" - speed seduction
it sure ends in a rather introspective way. No chest-beating nor blowing of the trumpet.

"And though I've learnt everything there is about attraction, secution, and courtship in the past two years, I learnt nothing about maintaining a healthy relationship. Being together has required a lot more time and work than learning to pick up women ever did, but it has brought me far greater satisfaction and joy. Perhaps that's because it is not a game."

Neil Strauss, THE GAME

now to return the book to its rightful owner

showing my good friend from the Mekong river delta around singapore
he particularly likes the "sticky" rice at sakae sushi
its a little different from the kind he plants in his backyard
the prawns certainly get his unreserved approval
reminds him of home
where he bbq's his daily catch right out of his sampan

viva singapura!

its a feeling of floating aimlessly
not knowing where im going
nor where im headed
Im quite sure something is wrong
somewhere somehow
yet im don't really know what the hell is going on

no im sure there's something that needs to be fixed

things come and go
like the lights are green one moment then red the next
then green again
one thing stays constant though

lost 2-1 in the semis of the CSI invitational tournament today
no complaints though
the eventual winners were just too good
not surprising when they had an ex-S league player in their midst

whole body is aching far too much for me to feel like doing anything right now
guess i'll just stay in bed

D's food review Part III:

Mee Sua at Circular Road near SouthBridge
damn, its good stuff for $3
settle only for the dry version with chilli
best enjoyed with a bottle of Heineken

usual suspects at this joint include certain white men
definitely one for the SPGs.

itching to play soccer...

tough choice:
socket 4.0 or bottle rocket 4.0??
only in matt black of cos.

D's Inner City Food Review Part II:

Prawn Mee & Fried Carrot Cake
@ the corner of Far East Square
is good stuff...
the good thing is that there are plenty of seats
so you probably wont have to wait long
during those crowded lunch hours

especially like the dark sweet sauce
used to fry the carrot cake
the prawns are juicy and the broth is thick
dare i suggest that it rivals Beach Road Prawn Mee
the mee is a little on the oily side tho
with a generous sprinkling of fried pork lard

Price: Prawn mee - $4,5; Carrot cake - $2,3
Taste test: 4/5 stars
Return to eat: yes

D's Inner City Food Review Part I:

if you're thinking about trying WHAM! burger
in the basement of China Square
you'd better be prepared to wait
and wait
and wait
for your burger
or better yet, bring reading material
we're talking 15-20 mins of waiting in line here
thankfully it wasnt me who queued

the patty is flaky but tender
the bun(s), well, not much to say, decent
the fries have erm girth, not the skinny macs kind
Price - $4.50

3 stars out of 5
return to eat rating - not any time soon
