One rule

Sometimes I come across articles that go like this 'TOP 20 TIPS TO A PERFECT RELATIONSHIP' or 'The Best Relationship Advice'.

It's interesting yeah but here's my one advice that I feel everyone ignores.

Do NOT compare your relationship to anyone else's

When I hear someone comparing their relationship to their friend's or worse, to their EX relationship, all I can think of is

It's just poison.


Gary's exams just ended (yay!!) and tomorrow we are off to...

... for his post-exam celebration + my birthday!

And it all comes to an end

I'm only going to talk about three bets here before wrapping it up. 

So the score was last like this:

G: 204 pts
M: 225 pts

The first bet was during my obsession with Somebody that I used to know...

OH YA! Pause for an awesome 9gag post!!!!

HAHAHAHAHA DAMN FUNNY RIGHT but when I sent it to my 1950s sister she replied 'I don't get it'. -__- 

We were going to a club that night and I told Gary they would definitely play that song! Gary took my bet instantly. 

In the middle of the night, in the midst of my alcoholic giddiness, I remembered very clearly clutching Gary and screaming 'they're playing my song!!!!!!! they're playing my song!!!!!'. WHEEEE. Highlight of the night wtf.

G: 204 pts
M: 235 pts

On the way to the club, a mere 1 kilometer drive ended up taking 40 minutes on the road. We were at Jalan Bukit Bintang, one of the crowdiest roads in KL, where we saw this dude selling cobs of corn. 

Good location + tourist + food = time to rip you off!!!

The only shot I can get from the passenger seat lol
So we bet. 

How much are they selling for a cob of corn?

G: RM5
M: RM2

Gary wound down the window and gave him some hope by asking the price. 

It was RM3. 

That corn had better be nuggets of buttery gold!!!!!!!!!!!

G: 204 pts
M: 245 pts

Alas the last bet. 

Gary's qualification exams started today. It had been months of preparation and anxiety. I  feel stressed as I type this and I'm not even the one taking the papers -__-

I've always said that studying isn't difficult. To start studying is the killer. It's kinda like exercise. The journey to the gym is always the most mentally torturing one, especially when home is so close. But once you're there, you're on a roll and all thoughts of home and comfort vanish. 

So we came up with our usual kickstart-studying bet. 

He wanted to study a minimum of 7 hours a day. So if he did less than 7 hours, he would give me 10 points per hour and if he did more, I'd give him 10 points per hour. 

How to motivate yourself to start studying!
A chart to count the hours
It was difficult at first, and I collected a fair amount of points. 

However, as he started getting into the groove (and as the D-day approached closer hence he gets more desperate), he was pulling in way more than 7 hours a day. 

Like an avalanche, all my points and lead until today disappeared and I'm happy to say that Gary has well and truly beaten me for this run of bets. And it was totally worth it. I'm going to buy him the best meal ever!!

He has 4 more papers to go so all or any prayers would be appreciated <3

Good luck darling.

Update on our lahs!

Our lah bet. 

For the month of June we did soooo well. My smugness shall hit your face. 

Gary: 15
Me: 16 

I owe Gary 10 cents. lol. 

This conversation happened on the very first day of July, at the start of our new count. 

My whatsapp with Gary. 

M: I have constipation!! 
G: Again? Maybe it's not ready to come out yet
M: You think this is a baby ah???
G: It's almost the same


It's not even the same hole wtf.

Vanity Fair TBC-style

Everyone wants to be a queen
A person's vanity is charming, foolish and very often amusing. 

Now and then do you notice that girl who will pause upon the sight of her reflection at the window display who will then tousle her hair or do a little pout? 

It's not just girls. Oh, when I'm in the gym... Every single day I would spot men watching their reflection as they tug those machines. If I could insert a thought bubble I'm sure it would be 'Oh yeah baby I look good'. 

So here is our themed bet: VANITY .

We seem to confuse vanity and materialism but let's not get fussy with definitions okay?

How it works: We would ask each person an individualised question, and bet on their answer. We would then answer the question ourselves and guess the other's answer. Closest wins.

1) The Classic

We asked Jo Wei, our high school friend who's about to get married this October. 

Bet: How much would you ask for you to shave your head completely bald?

G: RM10,000
M: RM500,000

I'm a bit embarrassed to say how I measure goes like this:

1. He has a lot of hair
2. He styles it
3. He has a lot of hair

More hair = more value = less reluctant = big amount of money required!!!

Jo Wei's answer: RM10,000


Gary wins.

2) Would you like it permanently attached to your arm?

We've reached a stage where many people can't live without their handphones/cell phones/mobile phones. When they confiscated our handphones in the US embassy, my sister was wringing her empty hands 1 hour later saying she had 'handphone withdrawal symptoms'. To be fair, I found myself checking through my bag  several times for my handphone!

It is pretty much agreed that the one person who uses her Iphone the most is Bobo!!!!

Bet: If you were paid RM100/day, how many days would you last without using your Iphone (or any other phones!)?

G: 0 
M: 5 days

I asked Bobo this on her formspring a few weeks ago but I'm too lazy to dig it out so her answer is basically like this:

Bobo's answer: as long as she gets money, she'll do it unlimited days

When I asked Jo Wei if this is true, he said: "Yes!! She loves money!!!"

This is counted as my win.

3) Life without gadgets

The next person, my FBIL, is whom we all look as the next Mark Zuckerberg.

Bet:  If we were to pay you 50 pounds (he works in London) a day to go about your daily life without using any gadgets, what is the maximum period of days/weeks you can last?

G: 3 days
M: 2 days

His answer:
Do you see the lesson here???

Money is motivation!!!!

Gary wins.

4) Tell me baby will you be here when I wake up

Katherine's turn!

Bet: How long can you last without any make up/contact lens? RM100 a day!

Katy Perry Before and After
Why women need makeup
G: > 1 week
M: < 1 week

Katherine's answer: 2 days

No contact lens, no way. Hahaha.

My win.

5) Piercing the button

Lilian reminds me of Audrey Hepburn. A classic picture of Lilian would be the one with her and the lamppost ala singing in the rain. She kinda lives in that era. I won't say she's conservative but you get the idea.

Actually wait, scratch that. Yes, she's conservative. You won't catch her sporting two earrings on one earlobe if you get what I mean.

Bet: How much would it cost us to get you (Lilian) to pierce your belly button?

That shit hurts
G: RM250,000
M: RM400,000

Lilian's answer: RM250,000

Gary wins double.

6) I wouldn't be caught dead in

We asked Joanne a simple question:

Bet: which would your rather walk around KL's shopping mall the whole day in?

G: drenched normal clothes
M: anime cosplay

Joanne's answer: anime cosplay

I win!

7) 6 packs or 6 feet?

We asked Gary's best friend, RJ, which would he rather be:

RJ's answer: Tall.

His explanation is very logical. You can't control your height but you can control those abs.

Still, how can I think straight when Mr. Gosling is looking at you like that. What a dream.

Gary wins.

8) Tattoo

Everyone has a secret tattoo wish. Don't you? Whether it's a little donkey on your ass (heh) or a testosterone-replacement dragon up your arm, you've already chosen your ideal tattoo.

We asked Alex what was his dream tattoo.

G: his girlfriend's name / any money symbol
M: his chinese name / any chinese symbol

Alex's answer: 狐狸 <-- complete randomness dafuq

I win! 



This is what Gary and I came up trying to guess each other's answers for some of the above questions!

Off with ya hair!
RM200 *

Handphone-less days
10 days
5 days
Gadget-less days

*I can't imagine shaving my hair, I'm sorry, but I really can't!! I told Gary if someone by the street offered me RM1,000,000 to shave my hair I wouldn't stop walking. Maybe more, I'll think about it. That's how I got RM1.2 million. I know it's a lot. Do I value my hair that much? Not really. But I know I'm one baboonass ugly baldie so the deterrence is mighty big!

I'm sorry, what did you say about hair and its value again?
Swiping it all up:

G: 134 pts + 70 pts = 204 pts
M: 165 pts + 60 pts = 225 pts


Coincidentally and hilariously, I went downstairs right after this post and saw this quiz on newspaper:

I took it and my score was 2 points away from being CONCEITED hahahahahahaha.
