Sleep-deprived me meets less-than-perceptive Hoka Hoka Bento employee. Hilarity ensues.

"Would you like something to go with your chicken katsu and rice?"

"I’ll have a chocolate pudding and lemon tea."

I head to the cashier. They charge me Rp 52,000. There is no chocolate pudding on my tray. There is no chocolate pudding on my receipt.

The employee has a sudden realisation. There is no chocolate pudding on my tray.

"Do you still want the chocolate pudding?"

I have a sudden realisation. It is 5:41 AM. I have not slept since yesterday. There is no chocolate pudding on my tray or my receipt. They charged me Rp 52,000.

"NO, I DO NOT WANT THE CHOCOLATE PUDDING."

The end. I need sleep. (at Hoka Hoka Bento Terminal 2D Bandara Soekarno-Hatta)

Watching Spider-Man 3

Though there are many cheesy moments and the CGI looks incredibly shoddy as the years go by, I still prefer the original Spider-Man movies over the new ones. Even this much-maligned third instalment.

The new Peter Parker feels more like a cool outcast rather than the bullied nerd of the previous movies, the latter of which rings more true to the wish-fulfilment appeal of the original comic books. Spider-Man as initially conceived was a way for Peter Parker to use his great power responsibly while also escaping his life as a loser - though even as Spider-Man he still lost a lot. While I enjoy the Andrew Garfield movies, I miss the loser aspect of Tobey Maguire. – View on Path.

Sad to hear Death Cab For Cutie guitarist Chris Walla will leave the band next month. I’m lucky I had the chance to interview him two years ago in Singapore.
