My drumming debut… plus icky photos

I’m performing at The Crazy Elephant this Sunday!

Come and watch me!

If not, nobody will be watching me, since nobody but drummers look at drummers.

Especially if the band has a chio vocalist.

Actually, on second thoughts, don’t look at me. I’m very unprepared and very stressed about it, even though I’m only performing two songs.

I haven’t started learning the second song yet!!

Well, if you have some time, just come and enjoy our student concert. There will be over 10 bands, each playing about two songs. And try not to pick on my mistakes!

It’s free admission but you’ll have to buy your own drinks, just like in any regular pub.

OMG I have no idea what to wear.

Worm food

In a bid to halt an imminent cough I could feel coming, I bought Vitamin C capsules last week.

I wasn’t prepared for what greeted me inside the box, so I plurk-tweeted it.

Redoxon Vitamin C capsules

Of course, everyone wanted to see pictures.

I’m surprised no one has seen it before. I have this impression that everyone takes Vitamin C pills because so many people advised me to take it when I was sick.

I guess people normally take chewable or effervescent tablets. I prefer time-release capsules because they’re kinder on my gastric.

So, here’s the promised picture!

Redoxon Vitamin C capsules

The first thing that came to mind when I saw this: Trays of icky worms you see in bird shops and aquariums. The brown stuff in the capsules look like the brown stuff that the worms crawl around in. Hence, worm food. Although I don’t know what worms actually eat.

Nevertheless, it feels weird eating this.

But it must work because the cough never came. And my sore throat didn’t develop into full-blown flu even though I ate durians on Saturday and potent durian ice cream on Sunday.

I’m feeling almost 100% now!

Copulating flies

Actually, the Club Morte guys used a cruder word to describe what you’re seeing in this picture below. I just don’t want to say it here.

Humping flies

Okay, I have no idea what is going on here. I just took the guys’ word for it that the flies were copulating.

(Bigger photo coming up. Don’t read on if you don’t like seeing insects close up.)

We saw these at an organic farm in Malaysia last Saturday. I’ll talk more about the trip another time!

The flies were very co-operative, allowing us to go really close to take photos. The funny thing was that they didn’t move at all in the few minutes we spent photographing and examining them.

Someone said they must be dead but they don’t look dead to me.

Here’s the close-up!

Humping flies

What do you think?

I wonder what’s that white blob between the two flies.
