Diaries of the Maid of Honor (28-Apr-10)

Chapter 2 - The Wedding Gown

Mich sent me her finalized wedding gown design last week. This type is called the "Princess-Cut". Lovely!! But the 2 ribbons will have mixture of champagne & white color.

"I wish I can keep this piece of gown as a gift for our future daughter.. hehehehe" - Mich



FUCKING da town

WAIT!! Don't judge yet when you see da FUCKING word. I'm not cursing...

See this first. It's an Austrian village named FUCKING, in the municipality of Tarsdorf, in the Innviertel region of western Upper Austria. The village is located 33 kilometres north of Salzburg, four kilometres east of the German border.


Are the residents called Fuckers?
What are the mothers called?
What would you be learning at the Fucking High School ?
Does the Fucking Hospital help you with anything else?
If your friend came from another town, he wouldn't be your Fucking friend.




I retype the article so that it's easier for you to read.
LONDON: (AFP) British tourists have left the residents of one charming Austrian village effing and blinding by constantly stealing the signs for their oddly named village.
White British visitors are finding it hillarious, the residents of Fucking are failing to see the funny side.
Only one kind of criminal ever stalkes the sleepy 32-house village near Salzburg on the German border – cheeky British tourists armed with a sense of humour and a screwdriver.
But the local authorities are hitting back and with the signs now set in concrete, police chief Kommandant Schmidtberger is on the lookout.
“We will not stand for the Fucking signs being removed,” the office said.
“It may be very amusing for you British, but Fucking is simply Fucking to us. What is this big Fucking joke? It is puerile.”
Local tourist guide Andreas Behmueller said it was only the British that had a fixation with Fucking.
“The Germans all want to see the Mozart house in Salzburg,” he explained.
“Every American seems to care only about The Sound of Music (the 1965 film shot around Salzburg). The occasional Japanese wants to see Hitler’s birthplace in Brauman.
“But for the British, it’s all about Fucking.”
Guesthouse manager Augustina Lindbauer described the village’s breathtaking lakes, forests and vistas.
“Yet still there is this obsession with Fucking,” she said.
“Just this morning I had to tell an English lady who stopped by that there were no Fucking postcards.”

This village does exists!! Go check out Google.



Now, this one is really good!
The sign says 'Bitte! Nicht so schnell', which in English translates to 'Please! Not so fast!



More tidbits, and it gets even funnier! ..
Pronounced 'fooking'.
The little hamlet of Fucking is named after the man who founded the village in the 6th century.
His name? Focko.

NOW YOU CAN FORWARD THIS TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS WHO KNOW NOTHING ABOUT THE FUCKING TOWN. =)

Almond Cookie hunting in Macau

If you’re wondering what I’ve done or where I’ve been when I was in Macau last week, you can expect that I again, had some extravaganza going on… o.0|

I learned how to make almond cookies!

The specialty of this shop's almond cookies -- baking cookies with charcoal.

"Sifu" said, NO EYE SEE.... 师傅说“无眼看啊。。”

P1200257


Was trying to capture myself with the Poker King poster.

P1200258


Heeheeheee... Cookies!! You know what, I never thought that I could come here at all. I mean the movie scene.

P1200264


Let's see who else had ever come here. The famous chefs.

P1200251


No doubt, Chui Heong's almond cookies are the most delicious of all you can find in Macau, even if compared with the famous ones like Koi Kei and Choi Heong Yuen.

P1200280


Try this if you get to go to Macau. You'll be surprised. Especially if you get to try the almond cookies of the other few famous pastelaria.

Everywhere you go, you can see Koi Kei bakery or Choi Lan's face, he's the spokes person for Koi Kei. That's why Koi Kei is so famous.
