SpongeBob Again, Likes And Peeves

Once a week. That's the agreed number of visit fast food place. Currently it's Friday night at McD. Until the SpongeBob promotion McD is having is still on, that is. We don't usually buy Raimie the Happy Meal set but then, it's SpongeBob! Let the boy gets his SpongeBob. xD
Shopping for groceries at Village Grocer in Bangsar Village is sure nicer than having to navigate around aisles packed with trolleys at Jusco or Carrefour at Mid Valley. One catch though - it's a tad more expensive to shop here. Ah well... it's Bangsar kan?
If you remember I got myself a GU Chomps last week. Not loving it so I was soooooo glad that Lafuma finally stocked-up these solids. Tempted to buy the whole box but I went all prudent and just bought just three tubes. Three tubes would last me for 9 weeks. I'm ready to roll! ^^

No, I don't eat one for every KM I run. I only take one solids for a 1 and a half - two hours run. Shouldn't totally depend on energy food to sustain me during a run, right?
Now for the peeves! Man, I sure hate it when going into an elevator and there's someone hogging the and stand close to the floor buttons (or whatever you call that) yet so unwilling to press open/close buttons. Yeah yeah. I know you are busy staring at your smartphone. But if you are, move away from the area and let someone (like me) who would help keep the elevator's door open for others or quickly close it afterwards. Also, it's not nice to block the way when people need to press the floor they are going to. I'm sure you will not be happy if a guy accidentally touched you, right?

Hubby ask me whether I have nothing to write nowadays. The answer is, pretty much yes. Gawd! My life is so boring! :(

Unless of course, you all are willing to read about me going long-winded on my runs - over and over again. That's easy! ;p

  1. some people are definitely more absorb in their phone than actually caring about the surrounding

    1. These people sometimes inconvenience other people. And at other times, they can pose danger to people. I've seen a lot of people being completely absorbed with their smartphones even when crossing roads! @.@

  2. Oh but I love peeves! Also look at that ginormous bag over her shoulder. This elevator is empty-ish, but I get very irritable when people with huge bags stand in crowded elevators and refuse to take the bag off their shoulder/back. Hold it in your hand, you stupid person you, so that we can all crack fewer ribs.

    Your supermarkets are so spacious! You've got aisles wide enough for trolleys! o_0

    One fast food meal a week, no mobile phone, a mom yelling about homework ... I think I need to abduct Raimie! :DDD

    1. Oh! Don't get me started on those peoplewith huge bags and refused to hold them in crowded elevators/trains, especially those with particularly hard bags that poke you!

      I sometimes shoved them back and they gave me annoyed look! Like, hello?

      Supermarket aisles - it may be spacious but with every other person pushing a trolley, it can be quite a jam navigating through the aisles.

      And a lot of parents here use supermarket trolleys as strollers by putting their child (or children) in them instead of stuff. Who need a stroller here?

      Ahahaha... but Raimie gets gaming & TV privileges. He actually value those more! xD

  3. i think part of the reason kids go to McD is the parent's decision, haha!! if the parents like spongebob then they gotta eat Happy Meal, else if the parents hate spongebob they can only settle down at old town~~ :D

    1. True also.

      Raimie really need to thank you for this, you know. I was quite ambivalent about it until you hyped it. LOL

    1. Astronaut much more sought after than Doc SpongeBob I guess. ;)

  5. oh, surely it's a lot more comfortable shopping at supermarket with less people.. but then perhaps you pay a little extra premium for the comfort of not having to be knocked by queues of trolleys??

    1. I guess so. But cannot always pay premium just for comfort. Pokai lah!

  6. i'm ok with crowds, but then not blocking my way standing right in the middle of the walkway, and somemore with their huge trolley taking up all space!!

    1. Yeah, I hate those people who just park their trolley in the middle of the aisle and not thinking about others needing to pass by.

      Also, no maids to tag along carry those heavy stuff for them. xD

  8. and yeah, those who stand close to the button panel in the lift, please open and close the door!! it's just like those standing at the doors of train, blocking the way, and yet they never move an inch!!

    1. Right?

      Why are they so obsessed with being near the door anyway? o.O

  9. I was at McD's two days ago and I totally forgot about SpongeBob! Btw, what does it do? Just a display piece?

    1. Of course they have "function" to play with. Most McD toys nowadays are like that, what.

      Dunno about Astronaut SpongeBob since we don't have that. Doctor SpongeBob can switch on/off his head lamp. Painter SpongeBob has sticker dispenser. ^^

  10. Ahaha you can order the SpongeBob meals and let me finish the chicken :p :p

    And, yea, that is such a pet peeve to have someone blocking the buttons. Or maybe she was a ghost?? ehehehhe

    No ur life isn't boring!! You have a family! :p
