Papier Doux

i'm having headaches and my whole week-end seems to have taken a knock as i'm not in a mood to enjoy it @ all.

back in September 2007, after a big feud, i went for a stroll all alone. i wanted to get out of the city and spend some quality time with myself and enjoy the day but the bad luck continued. soye =(

i took the motorway after the ebene fly-over and guess who were waiting before the trianon fly-over just before the entrance to shoprite? =(

a'way i didn't have a choice and immediately apologise to them cuz i know i was guilty here and i should not linger. i tried to explain that i was coming from hua lien club which is found behind the palladium complex and the only way to get out was to take the motorway and then back on the main roads but alas my plea was brush'd aside in an instant and then they let me go.

guess what afterwards?

would u believe that not even 5 mins later i saw both of them overtaking me and going somewhere else...

shitty yeah i know..bad luck or bad timing..i'm always @ the wrong place @ the wrong time always.. soye net

a'way almost two years later here i am going to rose hill and pay the fine (as if we don't pay enough taxes here in this country) and i thought well its a fix'd penalty and along with paper stuffs etc it will come around 550 like that..

to my surpris'd the cahier told me it was to be 1100 and i had to go back to the bank and get my a$$ back to the court and i asked politely if it was not a mistake..the lady told me its the decision of the court and that most of the time this is the amount by default..

arrrrghhh..a'way i had to pay and politely greeted the people working out there and went away..

since im having headaches, im piss'd off and i wanna scream to hell and f*ck all over..

why am i piss'd off? cuz i had time to travel and go here n there and now i got back, i got summoned..

heavenly mauritius lol =)

mari soye ca haha


How I Met Your Mother

Posted by 985M3rv|n on 09:50 in
How I Met Your Mother is a comedy about Ted and how he fell in love. It all starts when Ted's best friend, Marshall , drops the bombshell that he's going to propose to his long-time girlfriend, Lily, a kindergarten teacher.

Helping him in his quest is Barney, a friend with endless, sometimes outrageous opinions, a penchant for suits and a foolproof way to meet women. When Ted meets Robin, he's sure it's love at first sight, but destiny may have something else in store. The series is narrated through flashbacks from the future.

It's the most AWESOME teenage comedy since Friends & i'm sure it will turn out to be LEGEN- wait for it - DARYYYYY =)

Rule No. 1: Suit Up.

watching HIMYM episodes is like to have the anxiety off your shoulders a moment.. If anybody wants fresh air, wants to relax and evade in a world of jokes, laughter, common sense & a dosage of morality this is it..

i can't wait for the final episodes of season four..im still stuck @ episode 13 for the moment but i hope i'll be cruising in MacLaren's Bar sooner or later =) oh & btw, old fans of Dr Doogie (who remember this show?) would absolutely love it.

& the question that arises: would you ever name your son, Barney?

Site Visit: Prince Maurice

Posted by 985M3rv|n on 10:23 in ,
Le Prince Maurice:

Last time, went for a site visit @ Constance Le Prince Maurice. It was to determine the topography of the state lands & the preservation of mangroves in front of the hotel @ Bras d'Eau and in front of Belle Mare Plage Hotel.

Didn't have time to shoot pix in manual mode but had to choose preset mode as pictures were to be taken instantly while listening to the promoters.

a'way it was a nice experience as it was the 1st time i went in the far east of Mauritius. To imagine that this beautiful place will turn out into a hotel site soon w/o no access for public is a sorrow i can't describe

Braderie?? your call =p

Chez Manuel

Posted by 985M3rv|n on 10:57
Chez Manuel

i woke up this morning & a clear blue sky reflected in my eyes; the very first thought with came cross my mind is that i'm gonna vroum to-day =) but where?

direction ---> Flacq

On friday, i ask'd a colleague about a nice & cosy place to eat and w/o hesitating she suggested to me a restaurant in flacq: Chez Manuel. In fact its not in Flacq but @ in the village of St Julien and in my mind i was wondering where the hell is this restaurant.

so i took my mauritius map on AutoCaD and look'd for St Julien. Its found after Lallmatie and i thought the nearest route was thro' Salazie but when i plotted from Port Louis to St Julien via Moka, it nearest and moreover the weather was tempting to go for a stroll.

The food wasn't bad @ all & i will recommend this restaurant surely =)

However, its a nice & romantic place to eat though. There are parking slots inside, so need to worry about your car being smashed etc :p a cool music being played and i was happy that there weren't too many people having lunch.

Just Bought: Puma Ducati MotorSport Shoes

since a kid i have always wore Nike sport shoes. last time i felt like a change and started to shop lift for other brands. The new adidas showroom @ Emerald Park has a stock of newly designed adidas shows but those inflated prices piss'd me off each time.

1 day i went to Rawat Centre in Beau Bassin looking for some spare parts for my phone when to my astonishment i saw a shop with puma log o on it selling shoes, clothing and other puma accessories.. there i came to know that Rawat has become the official distributor of Puma in Mauritius..Oh Christ where was i all this time?. i almost knock'd off when i realis'd i lost so much precious time looking for puma shoes elsewhere.

i wanted a leather one of course not those synthetic rubber shoes.

then all of a sudden, while i was taking some shoes on and off the shelves, the ducati motorsport shoes fell on my head & before i'd even shout to say ouch i was just enlighten by its design & i was overwhelm'd =) i fell in love with it straightaway.

i could not afford to lose time as i was afraid someone might peep it if ever i linger & so for the first time, i've been able to choose another pair of shoes =) below are some close up shots :)

and of course i couldn't hold myself from shooting a pic of my shoes with my mobile; as they do have something in common. Both comes from the same official distributor lol
