Metblogs Mumbai on high alert

They are covering the chaos there.

Why do they close Jalan Maarof

The police usually closes Jalan Maarof every morning during the weekday. Why? Traffic?

9th European Union Film Festival

The GSC will be screening a lot of movies from the EU beginning this Thursday, in conjunction of the 9th European Union Film Festival.

Anybody wanna come with me and watch it in MidValley?

I thought it might be a good idea to watch one of those movies. Check ’em out.

Conversation of a sucker

It was close to 1AM on a Sunday just outside Hotel Istana in the middle of Kuala Lumpur’s business district.

Cab driver: How much do you want to pay?

Sucker: 20? I mean, 15. 15?

Cab driver: How about 20?

Sucker: 15?

Cab driver: it’s past midnight.

Sucker: Okay.

Book launch on Halloween

There was book launch close to home yesterday and I figured out, since it was Friday night and Halloween no less, I should crash it. Well, actually, I RSVP it but hey, whatever.

Three books:

There were readings. Here are Ezra with Amir Muhammad in the background.

Yeah. Amir scared the shit out of me that I couldn’t keep a steady hand for the shot.

Yup. Halloween. As you can see, Elizabeth Wong dressed as herself. Woooo. The scariest custom ever!

Most intriguingly, the place was called Rahsia, which means secret in Malay. When I first got the invitation, I was kinda annoyed since it said the venue rahsia. I mean, what kind of invitation that says the venue is secret? It was only later did I realize that Rahsia is the name of the place.

Ezra retold the story there in a more livid manner, having gone through the same episode.

In any case, quite cozy the place. And quite close to home too.

I didn’t know there is an restaurant with great atmosphere walkable from home! This is especially a plus point since traffic is crazy.
