The Last....

... Time you laughed?
5 minutes ago. Today was the birthday of two of my colleagues, and I made a photo montage of their heads over people's bodies and I thought it was funny, I was very pleased with my creativity and choice of bodies and montage of the heads over the body. Anyhow, I put Hannah's face over the body of Jordan, a famous showgirl with big boobs and tiny waste and when I showed the result to Alex, straight away he knew it was Jordan's body so I was stunned: "how did you know?" and he said he recognised the hair!!!! The liar, he obviously recognised the boobs (her most famous asset); and it made me laugh wholeheartedly.

... Time you cried?
Have already answered that one in an earlier tag.

... Time you danced?
In Vienna with my colleagues, it was our last night after a three-day conference, and I had received an honour for outstanding contribution to the company in 2006. I was drained, so Martin gave me some pills that gave me a kick and we went to an underground nightclub playing House Music and we danced until the club closed at 4am.

... Time you said "I miss you"?
Can't remember. I miss my brother and nephews everyday. But I don't think I've ever told them. So, Julien when you read this: I miss you. There I said it.

... Time you couldn't sleep?
The night before flying to Vienna, I was too excited at seeing all my colleagues again, especially Dani and Alison from the South African office, they are so much fun and real sweethearts. When they are around it's like a 24-hour party everyday.

... Time you were hungover?
In Vienna, again, a couple hours after coming out the night club, I woke up with a major hang over. I was still drunk from the few hours earlier when I was still downing gin tonics, but what was worse, was that all of us were half sick, half asleep in the airport lounge, and I was drinking a tomato juice and so was my boss and he put his drink next to mine, I picked it up thinking it was my drink and it was a Bloody Mary!!! hahaha, it was awful, I thought I was going to be sick drinking more alcohol when I barely recovered from the night before.

... Time you were romantic?
Never? Surely that can't be right. Well, it was not romantic but it had the intention, on Tuesday night when I bought fresh ingredients to cook Alex his favorite dish, linguine a la marinara (seafood pasta with a creamy sauce). But I guess the real romantic time we had was in Barcelona when Alex took me to El Gato, a lovely restaurant in the main high street of the city.

... Time you felt guilty?
Oh! I rarely do, but that day was a double bill of guilt. It was in Malaysia and I caused upset to the two little loves of my life Nicolas and Jacques. I abandonned them, and Nicolas cried his eyes out in silence and I did not even know! While Jacques was wearing a stupid belt I bought him and no one could undo the belt at school so they had to cut the belt when he needed the loo, no harm was done, but it could have and it would have been my fault!

... Time you indulged?
Oooh, that's almost a daily activity considering that everything I eat brings me so much joy. But truly, being constantly careful about what (or how much) I eat, the last time I indulged was at Oriental City in North London last month with Alex and our friends Seow Ling and Nils. The Malaysian food was so authentic, I had a Char Koay Teow (fried noodles) and a Beef Rendang (curry) and chicken satays. Hmmmm.

... Time you went wild shopping?
It was after my colleague's birthday party in Oxford last April; on the way back home, we stopped by Bicester a factory outlet town and emptied the Ted Baker store, I bought two skirts and three tops and one small black dress.

... Time you had a regret?
I try to live my life to never have regrets. so when I do have one, then I turn it around quickly so that it becomes a good experience no matter what.

... Time you exercised?
On Tuesday. I swear that I pay this membership just to feel guilty for not exercising and reluctantly drag my sorry fat arse down the gym. I did squats, lunges, a few fitness machines with scary names like the Abductor and rowing for 3 kilometers against time, and dragged my two lazy legs on the treadmill while watching a silly soap - thank goodness for technology that allows you to be lazy even at the gym.

... Time you felt outraged by news?
I was quite annoyed with the overly mediacised news for the poor Madeleine Mc Cann's kidnap. But the latest was Paris Hilton being released from jail after just 3 days. That pissed me right off, if you're rich and famous, you don't have to stay in jail?! I bet every single prisoners would rather be under house arrest, get to watch TV, access the internet, use the phone, have buddies over, eat nice food delivered to your door, have your family visit you; that's pretty much the life of a handicap person. It made my day that the judge called her back to court and placed her back in jail.

... Time you went to the movies?
It was for Hot Fuzz, a funny action film with the team of 'Shaun of the Dead', the only zombie film I've ever been able to watch. I enjoyed it, it was a good laugh, very slapstick and silly but thrilling as well. It's the kind of movie, you feel like a teenager when you come out of the theatre. ;)

A tag inspired by some questions from an interview and elaborated around the theme of the last time. Now I tag: Tweetey, Marianne, Hammer, Jeannie, Vancouver Mermaid and Zombie Slayer. I won't tag Kitem because she's off to Barcelona for a few days with friends and then off to the family holiday home on the other side of France, where taking long naps, long walks and long meals are the only things you do. Copy paste this below for your convenience:

Yikes, that's a long tag. Ok. Give me a few days.

Heh, I had to google search who Jordan was and it took me to "paparazzi filth." Ah, I remember her now.

You definitely know your foods. I love food, although it doesn't show on my body, yet.
