we are paramore

Last night, I drifted off to sleep with The Only Exception looping on my iPod. Looped it too, on my way back from work just now. And it's still stuck in my mind as I write this, because Paramore was just THAT awesome :)

Dunno if it was just me, but it felt distinctly different from the other concerts I've been to this year; there was just something about the crowd there, which was absolutely buzzing. Hayley and Co. put up a great show, and Michelle and I were just bopping along to whatever even though we didn't know all of the songs :P The usual hits were in the lineup though - Decode, CrushCrushCrush, That's What You Get, Misery Business, those. And I didn't bring any canggihfieds camera along so again, so I'm stealing all photos in this post (except the first) from Joshua just because. Hi Joshua! Check out his post for more photos BTW.

The best part of the night was without a doubt, when they performed The Only Exception. Hayley got everybody to hold up shiny illuminated things and the entire freaking stadium was singing along. Every single word. Like wow.

It was one show I definitely don't regret going to, and I'd go again if they'd come back. After I've properly memorised some lyrics, that is :P Props to Tune Talk for bringing them in, and of course many yays to working in Nuffnang and the perks that come with it, like this. teehee.

Yeah. I'm off to loop The Only Exception more... even though it's making me progressively more emo with every play :/


I've got a tight grip on reality
But I can't let go of what's in front of me here
I know you're leaving in the morning when you wake up
Leave me with some kind of proof it's not a dream

overheard in nuffnangMY

Sometimes, when you're around a bunch of crazy people 5 days a week, you gotta take some time to remember some of the stupid stuff that goes on around here. Most of the time that stuff goes on Twitter, but it all also gets lost in the wilderness of Twitterville all too soon. So I've been doing a little compilation of funny things Nuffies say either in person, through email or MSN that sometimes don't make sense then, and make even less sense when totally taken out of context Overheard in New York style. Or are just plain WTF however you look at it. Please refer.

Yuenny: It's about the length of armpit hair...

Robb: Oh the great god of Papua New Guinea, I believe in thee. Please give me the pig along with two coconuts now.

Michelle: I just felt my boobs bounce when I did that.

David: Where do you think I can find balls ah, I need to buy balls.

Nick Davis: Don't worry, when you're with me, you only need one minute of heaven.

Nick Davis: What? Unretweeted love?


Michelle: Does Nicholas Chay moisturise his head? *waves hands around head*

Pinky: Eh pick me up again, pick me up again?

Tim 2: Yo' momma so stupid, she looked up the lyrics to 'Around the World'.

Robb: Dicks and vodka - having either one is fine, having both is superb.

Linda: Boobs are difficult to keep.

Robb: Why have one banana when you can have TWO yao char kuey?

Nic Chay: There's some powerful gigabyte shit goin' on here man.

Pinky: Can you help me light up my cigarette? Cuz you're burning hot, baby.

Okay so I cheated; I added one of Pinky's pickup lines as the last one just cuz OCDFresh inside me was going all, "Make it feefteeeeeen." Actually, a compilation of all Pinky's pickup lines could take up an entire post by themselves. Yeah. Maybe I should do that next. But I'm not sitting next to Pinky any more so that's gonna be so hard :'( Make sure you keep your promise and come give us some sex jokes/pickup lines whenever you wanna shit okay Pinky!

all hail prince ludwig of bavaria

… because he is the good man that gave us Oktoberfest; it first started off as a celebration of his marriage 200 years ago. Clearly, people have always appreciated any reason at all for them to drink barrels of beer. :D

One of the things that I wished I could’ve done when I was in Europe last year was to extend our stay so that we could experience Oktoberfest in Germany but alas… if I’d stayed any longer I’d probably be so broke I’d have to hijack a gondola back here. :S Nemai. Since I couldn’t go to Oktoberfest, Oktoberfest has come to me!! WTF.

Last Friday, Yuenny, Jacqkie, Michelle and I went for the launch of this year’s Oktoberfest celebration at Souled Out. We endured spectacular traffic jams and a couple of massive wrong turns to get there, and we were already stressed out from work earlier so we really needed the beer when we finally arrived.

Upon registration, we each got one of these ginormous glasses (called steins, apparently)…

… which we were then told we could use to get free-flow beer during the event. I swear I heard an angel chorus in my brain at that moment, and our faces all lit up like a row of Times Square billboards. Those glasses have a 1 litre capacity by the way. Heehee. We wasted no time in filling the glasses up…

… and here I am being all HAPPYFRESH with my 1 litre of Kilkenny :D

There was quite the carnival atmosphere going on there, there were Oompah band performances, German folk dances and some cool games too. One of them was where you had to compete in pairs to roll a barrel up a slope thing, and another one was like this three-legged race that we used to play in primary school, except you’re both holding a full stein of beer while doing it. Hahaha. Oh, and there were plenty of Bavarian milkmaids around too *wiggles eyebrows*:

The other Nuffies were planning to join us later, so after an awesome dinner of sauerkraut and jumbo sausages (MMMM), we just chilled and messed around lots with Yuenny’s camera (all pictures are from her too, shame on me I know)…

… and by 10-ish, our table was crowded with Nuffies (and boyfriends) all eager to drink.


We got rebuked by a disgruntled Kadazan for not finishing our 1 litre of beer each before they came. :S Hey, give us a break, we’re not the designated alcoholics at Nuffnang okay? :P It was all good fun though; we spent the next hour or so talking about more nonsense and laughing at Linda, who primly announced that the beer was getting to her after all of two and a half sips.

Oh Chubbs. I love you, Chubbs. Don't you love me too, seeing as I didn't post the photo that Jacqkie posted? HAHAHA oops.

Anyway, Oktoberfest is happening all this month so there are awesome promotions at GAB outlets everywhere. There’s this RM 50 for a litre of Tiger beer promotion going on, and remember that huge beer stein of mine? If you buy your beer in one of those steins, you get to keep it!! Mine’s currently sitting on the kitchen table scaring my housemates. There are apparently different designs available at different outlets, so let’s go collect all the different designs and we can make a little beer stein family WTF. There are a couple more other promotions; check them out at So many drinks, so little time. AIH.
