Not Exactly Back to the Future

Um, what year is this?

Well, I'll be damned. Ms Khaylis and Ms Yoga have tagged me to complete this self-reflection meme. Ok, I will do it, but be warned. I am not completely rationale because (1) my mind is already on weekend mode, (2) didn't get much sleep. Had sex last night.

34 years old and filthy rich?

Heh Heh.

Damn... i'll be 34 in a year and a half... how to be filthy rich by 34? How?!?!

My only hope for instant richness is if the lottery ticket in my wallet hits the jackpot of RM9,000,000. We can dream right?

khaylis :

gosh, i always have fun with you on Sundays. and yeah, wished i had the pancakes when i drove back. need. pancakes. nowwwww... ;)

yes, yes, see you on the treads.

foxybabe :

it originally was 30 and filthy rich, but then again, i think that was a tad too optimistic. 34 is more achievalble, knowing that CEO's are getting younger by the minute!

sports freak :

dude, we can always dream, and why resort to gambling? tak payah, you're rich already man. pursuing something you love like sports is rich in its own nature. :)

zed :

cherrybakewells :

samuraisepeda :

hahahahah...actually, i really don't know why i typed that out. remember, i was under lots of influence on that friday. ;P

and yeah, thanks for dropping by.

madnessinvain : oklah. gosh, the things a guy would do to get laid, including lack of sleep. tsk tsk tsk. huhuhu...

silent :

hahahahhah...the shame the shame. when you think you know who you don't want to be with, at the end you realise you will always end up with a lawyer. aiyoooooo...

hey, it was great seeing you at the wedding.

Just curious, what were you doing in Athens, Ohio?

ailin :

hey, thanks for dropping by! :) I was in Athens, Ohio because my Pa did his Masters there. had pleasant memories there; very carefree. Do you happen to know anybody from that part of the world? ;)

6:01 PM  
Blogger aalborg said...

Yeah, I was in Athens for a total of 4 years, once when my dad was doing sabbatical and 10 years later, he was the Tun Razak Chair holder in OU. I went to AHS for 2 years.

I still have friends in "that area"....small world....:D

8:43 PM  
Blogger aalborg said...

I was actually in Athens the Christmas hols of '94. Stayed with my old high school friend, and had dinner with the current Malaysian family who was the Razak Chair holder. I remember they had 3 kids with them that time.

Blogger Muddy said...

ailin :

oh my god!!! what a very small world. and yes, my family and i were there in 94 (only left to msia in 95). who was your friend?

and hahahahha you went to AHS? i didn't make it that far. went to Athens Middle School at uptown. (ahahahah...remember uptown area? or was it downtown? hahah...confused.)

9:38 PM  
Blogger aalborg said...

AMS? Yeah, me too. Sekejap je, then upped to AHS. Uptown, downtown. That is rhetoric, dude. We always debated on that, and Carl Pallini finally ended it, by saying, "depends where you are coming from" Killjoy.

I still have friends in the neighbourhood...Elmwood Pl, and the surrounding blocks.

Blogger Muddy said...

elmwood...that's a really nice place to live. my family and i lived in this crummy (but quaint) house on richland ave. it's right across wendy's and mchappy's.

hahahah...i am becoming nostalgic now. missed the cupcakes at Oasis. The buttered popcorn at the cinema. and don't forget Msian nights and Halloween (if you haven't known, Athens is the 13ths scariest places on earth!)
