Indian in red, a cat that isnt really a cat and the really roasted chickens.

Friday night was spent hunting for new sneakers for my wife.... it struck me that they make women’s sneakers so small and frail looking…. Why?… and it almost always has pink in its colour scheme…. Why?... anyway the hunt is still on…

Andrew had a show last Friday and Saturday night at Pampas Restaurant and Bar in KL (it’s near Little Havana). Most of the APMs went on Friday but Dono and I went for the show on Saturday.

(andrew is the one in red)

Andrew as usual brought down the house with his stand up attics. He’s a good Standup Comedian who has opened to the likes of Harith Iskandar, who happened to be there in the crowd that day too. The standup comedy scene here in Malaysia is booming and with acts like The Comeback Kings (Who are hilarious btw), I believe it will flourish and become as good as international acts like Jerry Seinfeld. Who knows?....

Before going for the show I had a Civet Cat sighting. I had gone to pick Dono for the show and was waiting outside, when his dad pointed up to the electrical pole lines. The little feller (Ok maybe not so little) was acrobatically walking on the telephone wire. I have seen this feller a number of times here in Section 4 PJ. It came into my room a few years ago once when I was staying in Section 4 and scared the gejibers out of my sister’s cat. kekeke

If you don’t know what a Civet Cat is google it lah…. It is more like a mongoose or weasel then a cat. In Malay I think they call it musang. Its really cute, intelligent… and amazingly agile.

After the show in Pampas, Dono and I decided to go watch 300. We headed over to Amcorp and saw a fire truck parked outside. On the third floor where the cinema is located we saw that there where a number of firemen at Kenny Rogers. I jokingly told Dono that the Chicken Grill which they leave on, with chicken rotating in must have caught fire, but it turned out to be true. When we got closer they where dousing that whole area. Apparently there wasn’t an actual fire but there was some amount of smoke. So it wasnt too serious.

Well after some busy bodying … we went over to the cinema and got the tickets for the midnight show. The movie was excellent. They have managed to make a very good movie rendition of the graphic novel 300… really really good, 9/10 for me. Every scene looked like an oil or air-brush painting…the fight scene where Stelios and Astinos take on a few ‘Immortals’ was so well executed…man!! Woah!! ….excellent!! actually… im going to give it a 10/10……. who cares if its historically incorrect.....
