Kratos likes to kill things

So my day didn't end with my lovely lunch, actually it was just the beginning of my day. After giving out two free hugs in town my confidence was boosted and felt bubblier and happier.

I went to Jayden's house later that day and met up with Treble and Corey and started to help the set up of the night’s events. When I got there, Jayden was confused by the TV he wanted to unplug seeming to have no cord for the power. It had power; we just couldn't work out where the power was coming from. Others started to arrive and I helped bring the Pc's, monitors and cables in. We were setting up for a LAN party.

Everyone but Me, Corey and Treble had brought at least one pc(Corey and Treble with their Macs, my pc being too large and my inability to move it), Corey and Treble set up Jayden's Ps3 and proceeded to play Little Big Planet with a "No Slap pact". The pact didn't last long because once they started a level with trains being the safe platforms over electrical floors and ceilings. Corey had great fun killing Treble with slaps. I hurt myself laughing at the image and Treble's protests.

The rest of the night was a haze of games, Single player and Multi player, but it was while Treble played God of War 3 I realised how much Kratos has lost all sense of humanity and really just enjoyed murdering people. That could have just been Treble's playing style.

Just a little recap of what I've been up to. If you'll excuse me, I'm going to watch some TV with my folks.

Meow and KK

The celebration of my Dad's friend's Birthday was pretty awesome. I was still feeling quite down and tired when we got there and had made the foolish mistake of brushing my teeth with plenty of toothpaste before leaving. The reason it was foolish was once I got there I was thirsty (I'm kinda always thirsty) so I decided to try a Phoenix cola with honey in it. Honey Cola they called it. It was nice but the toothpaste made it taste weird. It seems me and the rest of the family turned up early and was sharing the table with a bunch of people that were not part of the party. About this point I realised how tired I was. The next hour or so was just me having a non-sweet non-gingery ginger beer, looking at old photos of the birthday boy and chatting to people.

Then it came time to order dinner, I hadn't been really interested in anything on the menu as I'm a Asian food, spice freak. When put on the spot I decided to try the beef steak. IT WAS AMAZING! A good inch and a half think but cooked perfectly, it came on a sweet potato rosti and had tomato and mushroom on top. That was a good meal.

By now some people were starting get a bit drunk and I joined into a conversation with a College teacher at Aotea College who has a band that couldn't play that night due a lack of drummer. When I asked what type of music they play he told me it was "Genre defying" "progressive" and finally settled on "Surf Prog".

I didn't understand this but he explained that it was Surf music and Prog rock. So, a bit strange.

The band that did play was apparently a punk band but was an aged band that sounded more country-ish at first.

All in all it was a pretty cool night. Meow does not serve cat.

Today I caught with few mates and went to favourite restaurant, KK Malaysian. (Again, Asian food, spice freak) Me, Corey, Nathan, Jayden and Treble all caught up and explained to each other what we have been up to.

From left to right: Me, Treble, Corey

Nathan, cool as ever!

I also decided to take photos of all the awesome food we got too!

Nathan got himself a Roti Chanai and said he enjoyed it. Look at all that Roti!

Treble is was the least adventurous with his fried chicken but hey, can't begrudge a guy for liking chicken.

Corey got confused and ordered number 29. He couldn't remember the name of it. (It was Wan Tan Hor)

"How do I eat this?"

I was the fatty of the group and got myself the delectable Mee Goreng...

...and Spring rolls. :D

Jayden was late and ordered himself a Char Kuey Teow.
All in all, most of us had a good lunch, a good chat and I satisfied my craving for spicy noodles for the time being.

I hate sleepless nights

Yeah, I couldn't sleep last night and that has put me in a horrible mood for the whole day. Woke up sore and had a shower that competed with the washing machine. Not a great start. My day didn't really progress from there but it also didn't go downhill. Things should pick up as I'm going with the Family to a restaurant called Meow for my Dad's friends 50th. Whether or not they serve cat will be discovered.

Tomorrow I'm going to catch up my mates and go to my favourite restaurant, KK Malaysia!
I'm extremely keen for this and have been planning it for weeks.

Any this is going to be a short post because I believe we will be leaving for the Cat restaurant soon!

Stay classy!

I made a Sandwich

Actually I made two and stacked them on each other. One was ham and Lettuce, the other was Tuna, mayo and spring onion. Both were very tasty. That has been the high point of my day, apart from playing a little bit of Dark Crusade.

Yesterday I handed in an application form at my local Supermarket, I had planned to meet up with one of my best mates, Jayden, and eat microwave popcorn that I had picked up at the Supermarket before leaving. Sadly he wasn't home so I drank the rest of my V Iced coffee (Quite nice by the way) and drew a Dino-Guar before leaving. Apparently it is quite sad to sit on someone's doorstep for forty minutes but I'm sure he'll forgive me.

I then popped into Corey’s place because he lives quite close by, He wasn't home either but I had a good chat with his brother and showed him the Dino-Guar. He thought it was brilliant and could "Blow Treble out of the water".
Treble is a friend of mine who I torment and tease constantly; I know he loves me though. I'm saying "treble" because he has issues with me using his real name on the internet. He likes to draw me and my closest friends into Web comic called "Comic Book Book" I'm the second favourite according to his fans! That tickles my ego something nice.

So today and yesterday were pretty much flops, not much happened and I lost some of the respect of my friends. Right now I'd like some ideas for a title for my Blog. If you like picture of me shouting Morrowind I recommend you look Corey’s Deviantart. Yeah, my friends are talented. Should I post my Dino-Guar? Also to the friends I have been mentioning, is it alright if I just use your names?

Japanese noodles

A good friend of mine went over to Japan on a school trip before he left to live in Australia, I actually miss him terribly. Sam come home! Any way I made the noodles and took photos as well. Somewhere between some and lots of photos.

These noodles apeared to be made by Yahoo and came with a sauce packet.

There was a whole lot of dehydrated meat and vegetables as well as some powder that smelled quite savoury when I added the water and the sauce.

These noodles were VERY tasty and most definately beef flavoured. I usually avoid dried meat/veges due to the scariness of thier apearance. They just don't seem normal. The meat and veges in these noodles were really nice as far as dry mystery meat goes. I kinda got sick of these by the end though.

These appeared to be curry Udon noodles with a powder packet, sauce packet and dried veges. I like Udon noodles so I was really looking forward to these.

I took the noodles out and added the packets to the bottom of the cup. While I was waiting for the water to boil the smell attracted my sister and good friend. It seemed I had to share, It was tough because the boy they smelled good.

All the forks...

Okay, these were AMAZING! I didn't even mind sharing in the end, I was happy just smelling and eating them. If you've ever had a good asian curry then you will know what these were like. I really wish I could find more of these ones.

I love noodles and these were some of the best. Of course my favourite noodles of all time were these spicy shrimp flavoured noodles my school cafe sold for a time. I can't remember the brand sadly so all I can do is keep an eye out.

I'm writing a blog

It seems I'm not doing anything else at the moment. Life's not bad but not good either, the only excitment I get at the moment is from food. Today I made Pancakes and discovered adding melted butter to the batter makes tastier pancakes. That's not exactly exciting but the red food colouring I added was for about ten minutes.

All my mates are in University and other courses and my course was a flop. I was trying to get into a drama group of young actors that actually put on shows for the public. Sadly I didn't get in. So all my friends are busy and I have not much to do but make pink pancakes with more butter than should be allowed.

At an attempt to seem slightly productive, I might just start blogging more. Most of what I'll blog will seem boring and badly worded but it might just make me feel better. Hey maybe I'll get popular! It'd be nice to have more than two followers anyway. Considering food is the most interesting thing in my life maybe I'll post my culinary exploits, WITH PHOTOS! So prepare for posts about games, my best mates, food and whatever else I do with my day.
