Good Old Times - Old Good Times - Old Times Good

I called Carcar on her mobile phone on Thursday night for a short chat but at the end we ended up chatting in ym for one & half hours. Might be cos of Sotong Mind Thinks Alike, that's why we can have endless interesting topics when chatting, including the good old days and several other topics. She said I'm one of the pioneers in Ctinthecity woh.. Carcar even suggested a project on "Good Old Times, Old Good Times & Old Times Good". Sounds interesting, so I decided to participate and my post is finally up :)

Come to think about it, I know Carcar for one year already - through blogging. How I get to know her? One bright sunny day, on 15th October 2005, I saw from my sitemeter, the "visitors referring URL" showed her blog address. So I itchy hand and clicked on her blog and the first post I read in Ctinthecity was Cherish Our Relationship. And from there on, we finally manage to get to know each other and become friends... I still remember that lengthy post till today and not forgetting the first few pictures (including the wooden-handicapped-chair) that she posted during that period of time ;) I just told her during those early days, I mistaken her as a Singaporean cos her location profile in the past was in KiasuLand. Carcar has the ability is to turn peanut into sausage, LOL. Psssss.. Don't stand next to her cos she is so talllllll. You can either sit or squat or lie down or sleep next to her, but don't stand next to her... Carcar, when is our next sotong session? ;)

Winn is the other great person that I know of for a year too. Yeah, I started reading her blog on 13th October 2005. I can't remember how I came across her blog but I can still remember the first post that I read from Sapturn. The first post that caught my attention was Thief followed by My Pop Idols, cos of the cute doggies photo. All these posts were related to Lucas. Shhhhhh... The first time when I read her blog, I was sort of confused by her gender, hahahhaa, cos of the caption she wrote below the My Pop Idols post :
Oh my god! I knew it. I knew Lucas's gay! And so's Max. Shame on you . But I still love you Lucas. Shame on you Max, you give in so easily!! But OK lah . No big deal. I'm 40% gay myself. Testified by Gay-O-Meter. Winn, Waiting for the chit-chat & makan session with you next week. We will have ROJAK, assam laksa, chen-dol, char koay teow, hokkien mee, curry mee, oh chean & what else? (Wah.. can finish meh? ordering so much?)

Cynthia, another great buddy of mine whom I get to know of since September 2005 when she left a comment in my White Coat post. Our friendship continue from there. She said I sound "motherly" on the phone.. *pengsan* Mmmmm... *Scratch head*. Cynthia, I'm waiting to have a bowl of famous Penang Assam Laksa together with you (at the Air Itam Market next to the longkang) when you balik kampung. Cynthia loves Penang food :P

There are many other bloggers that I get to know of during the early days but many have already retired or semi-retired... Too bad my crappy KSL/契细佬 Jellyfish has retired. Remembering those crappy moments in the early days with Jellyfish, Day Dreamer, Cynthia, Winn & Carcar. During those days, these bunch of great people have already start fighting to become the first commentor (just for fun & for that syiok feeling) - The First-To-Comment Syndrome (FTCS). I can't remember who actually started the trend.. issit Jellyfish? or Carcar? or DayDreamer??? Carcar, can you recall? And not forgetting all the Perasan, Pengsan, Cabut & Piakking sessions... Hahha, I started piakking others with sotong & other seafood since 2004 ( in one of the forum that I participated earlier on) .

Luckily my memories didn't fail me. It is nice to recall back those sweet memories. Carcar, my post is up. Looking forward to reading your version of Good Old Times - Old Good Times - Old Times Good :)
