Junk magazine, April 2009 issue - watch for it!

14pp feature

Wrapped the massive feature yesterday. Had a mild panic attack during lunch at Subway because editorial director called and said we have to add four more stories asap because of some ... ads. Don't really know the story, was busy panicking and looking for filler stories.

Found this place in 1U called Garden. It's all decked out in plastic ... kinda tacky, but the food is quite decent actually. I really enjoyed their sorbet which was presented in a rather unique way - scooped into the hollowed out fruit from which it was made.

Wrote the emergency stories in a daze when we got to the office. Didn't know what to make of the title, so I asked Myra if "Secret Garden" was too tacky.

"No, it's okay. And the cafe is quite 'secret' given its location." (ie hidden)
"Okay! Now ... who wrote Secret Garden again...?" I ask.
"Bruce Springsteen," she replies. With absolute certainty.
" ...... LOL."

So I googled the author, found the REAL writer and not an Americana folk singer, finished the story with a flourish and submitted it to editing.

"Wow ... am I done???"
"Yeah," Myra says, quite bothered cos her CD of images with KL Design Week photos were fucking up.
"OMG... I can has freedom?"

Which is why I am here, blogging inane crap. Don't shoot me.

You know what's fun?

Listening through a stack of unlabeled CDs you burned from 2005/2006.

Oh, sweet nostalgia. And dubious choices - Jesse McCartney, "Because You Live", really Sarah?

PS: I was really looking for this compilation. That Rockefeller song damn hard to find la online.

Rainy days and Sundays

... always get me down? Not really, Karen Carpenter. I am quite enjoying the solitude of my house right now. Granted, I have bolted the upstairs grill and activated the alarm because I'm a paranoid freak.

This is by far the wettest Chinese New Year ever. I've come to associate the festival with hot, humid weather but 2009 has proved me wrong. Since tomorrow will be the real start of the working year (because Xmas/NYE/CNY celebrations just sorta blend into one another), today I won't do anything but bond with myself. Next week is already looking all sorts of crazy.

Oh. Except for people working in KL though - Federal Territories public holiday for you tomorrow. This is the one occasion I wish we still worked at Bukit Bintang.

I'm OD-ing on these two songs currently.

School of Seven Bells "Half Asleep".

Not new, but still wonderful, The New Pornographers's "Challengers". <3
