Good news: Snow In Midsummer (an award-winning film about May 13th will be aired in Malaysia. (Probably with lots of censorship but this is still momentous)

... I am very annoyed at youtube for always somehow recommending Nigel Ng's videos. Can you not, youtube? Is there a way to filter by keywords because that will be great

My fav thing about the reading the replies under posts about Israel and U.S. involvement is seeing all the "well, Trump is worse" comments.

(In case it's not clear, I hate it)

I had to do my taxes so I had some milk tea and kaya toast to make the process less painful.

also yes, Bentong ginger ruins me for any other ginger because they are usually not even close in terms of spicy/strong

The ice-cream place there (Kow Po) hasn't changed the way they made ice-cream in years. Used to be a treat for us when we were kids. A very nostalgic place (we haven't been back in quite a number of years though)

When we first moved here, 45 made it impossible for foreign spouses to work. So my wife went back to school and today, she’s graduating with her Bachelors in Psychology. Next stop: grad school! (Thankful for California’s excellent public universities system, and resident tuition!)

Sabrena felt she got an excellent education at SF State, and is looking forward to start the clinical psychology masters program to be your friendly multilingual culturally relevant therapist in a few years

Did I just spend almost two hours on expense report?

Yes.

Just... Why is it so hard? Why can't we just put numbers and attach receipts and go? No. Everything has multiple screens with many drop down boxes

geraineon,

... Maybe they just really do not want employees to claim expenses

Is it time to ask for a promotion if people think I am at a higher position than I actually am? Ahaha

So confused today when I saw "senior [current title]" in the document in relation to me.

my groupchat reminded me that yes, in Malaysia, fines get discounted to encourage people pay fines, and this is blowing the mind of my sgrean friend XD

(so we just wait for discounts to pay)

This!

Whenever I read something along the lines of that, I get annoyed because what? People need to be hardworking, a contribution to the economy, etc. to have rights and feel safe?

(Many times, well meaning people have told me that they "cannot imagine why they make visas such a painful process. People like you are a great contribution to the country!")

(I get why they say that but also... Can you listen to yourself?)

The scammers pretending to be hot single ladies targeting Malaysian chinese-speaking users have arrived on Threads, and they fully understand that their audience love food pics more than boob pics.

(The food photo was in fact stolen from one of my mutuals)

Another scam account masquerading as a pretty & single Malaysian lady shares the exact same food photo.
A third scam account masquerading as a pretty & single Malaysian lady with huge boobs also sharing the exact same food photo.

Been fighting a battle of wills with my flimsy wired colander. Either I break it first or it draws blood on me first

Well, it stabbed my finger so I guess I should get a new one ahaha

(Tip: try not to keep them when wires are already poking out)

Last meal in Atlanta

Breakfast of over easy eggs, grits, biscuit and a sausage. Not pictured, sauteed kale because I need my greens. Friend got pancakes with bananas. The pancakes were really good!

The biscuit is good too (it's usually too dry when I had it in the past)

(This is Ria's Bluebird)

The other places I ate at that I enjoyed: Urban Hui

It was a little trippy to hear Indonesian music as we were eating 😆

And then I ended up chatting a bit with the waiter, who is Indonesian who thought I was too because I was like omg who chose the music! (No, I didn't recognize them, but I did not expect to hear Indonesian music)

This pic is not all... The noodles came later and I think we did order more stuff (this is all for two people, but I have a very good holiday stomach, and only the bok choy was left unfinished by the end)

Unfortunately, the friend I was with cannot really eat spicy so we went with all the stuff that are either not spicy or not very spicy... Maybe someday if I'm ever back I'll do the spicy things. It came recommended by a friend who is from Wuhan and they eat spicy there

@ysabet hahaha. Maybe they should have just tossed in even more spice, just for him!

Achieving Zen by just blocking "what about October 7" people without engaging~ because no amount of engaging helps

geraineon,
@geraineon@blahaj.zone avatar

The issue with blocking here though is it doesn't remove the replies that annoy you

It's still there in notifications. If there's a way to do that, lmk... (Mute thread didn't work?)
