A luuurve attack!

So, I was waiting at the pickup point for my latest purchase that I bought on ebay and… OOH. What is this in front of the 7-11?

Like anyone could resist THAT!

Okay, anyone who isn’t me probably could… With that, I IGNORED that it was obviously May and not February and stuck a dollar coin in.

Hence, let’s see what’s in the ball eh?

Ooooooooooooooh… Can you ever get overboard with roses? This package does not think so. Let’s turn it around, shall we?

Truly, the instructions are a bit suspicious. Here’s a close up for you to read.

1) Break the water bag inside the gift with both hands completely.
2) Shake the gift a few seconds, then throw it away.
3) Wait for a few seconds, you will get a surprise gift.

Frankly, I was freaked out with number 2 so I decided to do it near a sink just in case. It DID feel like a bomb bag to me (those things are very fun to toss by the way) and there’s nothing romantic about being exploded with soda water.

So press it and toss it away, I did.

AWWWWWWWWWWWWWW, HOW FREAKING SWEET.

And I didn’t even get exploded too! A heart popped out of the plastic!

I HEART (with a rose) YOU!

So in the end… it’s actually now in a plastic bag in my cupboard just in case it does explode unexpectedly…

HAVE A LOVE ATTACK!

Get Mentored!

I got this in my email today. You writer/artsy types, go apply!

The Mentor Access Project (MAP), organised by National Arts Council,
is now open for applications for its sixth intake starting in July
2008. MAP is an 18-month mentorship programme to ensure the sustained
development of emerging writers by providing them with mentorship
opportunities and ongoing critical feedback.

Apart from having the privilege of being tutored by an established
writer/playwright, participants will enjoy opportunities for peer
interaction and to foster stronger connections with the Singapore
literary scene.

Selected applicants can also participate in Masterclass Talks and
workshops conducted by established writers, public readings, as well
as discussion forums and talks covering the business of publishing,
such as copyrights and literary representations (agents).

The New Book Initiative enables promising original works submitted by
MAP participants to be considered for book publication, in conjunction
with NAC’s Publishing and Translation Grant. This is on top of
enjoying publishing opportunities in an online literary journal to be
produced by MAP at the end of the mentorship period.

MAP is managed by mediaexodus whose team members include Yong Shu
Hoong, a published poet and Singapore Literature Prize 2006 winner,
and Enoch Ng, General Manager of mediaexodus (and its imprint,
firstfruits publications), a Golden Point Award first-prize winner.

Applications are open to Singaporean citizens or permanent residents,
aged 18 years and above, writing in the field of poetry, prose or
drama in any of the four official languages. The deadline for
application is May 31, 2008, and application forms can be downloaded
from http://www.nac.gov.sg/lit/lit03.asp#men

To the $2 store!

Okay, so I went to Daiso yesterday to see if they had miniature furniture thingies for my Pinky St. figurines and that I just liked going there anyway. The stationary section is always niiiiiiiiice.

And okay… I admit, the toys section amuse me like heck.

Like this…

LET US HAVE A CLOSER LOOK, YES?

daisoswan2

Mind you, this in the children’s toy and party section. Never mind that if this was a children’s toy… What kind of party would this be to use it?!

daisoswan3

The instructions… have… a… perverted looking man… on it.

AND WHAT IS UP WITH THE SWAN? WHY IS IT BULGING SUSPICIOUSLY AT THE BOTTOM THERE!?

Fortunately (or UNFORTUNATELY?!) I found a loose pack near it too that wasn’t in a box.

daisoswan4

I can’t open it due to duh, me not buying it but… I CANNOT SEE HOW YOU CAN INFLATE THIS THING.

And… It’s supposed to be attached to some velcro thing?! I HAVE NO IDEA HOW THIS IS GOING TO WORK IF YOU ARE NOT A PERVERTED GUY, SERIOUSLY.

So!

If you guys ever buy it to try it out… Please post pics so we can know how it works?!

Ps. If you guys ever ask me to pet your swan I will smack you with my banana holder.
