Short Talk:

Is it wrong to add girls on Facebook, look through their photos, then quietly delete them afterwards?

I cannot possibly be the only person doing it... right?

Paris Expensive

For someone whose first name is "Dawn", she certainly sees very little of it.

Throughout our trip, our travel partner was rushing for her Uni assignment deadlines half the time.

Some days I'd wake up at 6 for my morning run and that poor girl would still be awake staring at her laptop. Then when I'm ready to go out and do some sightseeing, she'd be in bed fast asleep. I told her about the irony and she joked that she's called "dawn" because that's time she goes to bed.

Normally I'm perfectly okay with going sightseeing alone, but I have reasons to be worried in this instance. Les Marais (the place we were staying), apart from being the Jewish enclave in Paris, is also the gay centre of France.

If Notre Dame is the heart of Paris, then Les Marais must be the penis.

Every morning as I walked out to the train station past the cafes, pairs and pairs of gay couples would be sitting together holding hands, looking at the people.

Apparently, Paris is such a romantic city that even men and men fall in love with each other.

When I do meet up with the two girls, it'd be for dinner, after I'm doing with my sightseeing and they're done with their shopping.

Dawn and I are both big fans of chillout music label Hotel Costes.

They produced a lot of music I listen to regularly, including my favourite holiday song "Sympathique" by Pink Martini, which I've used in the Saddam Hussein visiting McDonald's prank video I did earlier this year.

Hotel Costes is also the name of an actual hotel near the Champs Elysees. We thought it'd be a sin if we travelled all the way to Paris and not visit this legendary hotel.

Even if you're not a fan of the music label, Hotel Costes is still worth a visit for its opulent French decor and awesome courtyard.

Not to mention their lovely barmaids.

We decided to stay for a drink and enjoy the DJ spinning our favourite lounge music while we're there, feeling slightly under-dressed among the suits and gowns here.

The atmosphere is so warm and cozy and posh and opulent in here that I almost felt obligated to pay them for the air we breathed.

I knew drinks were gonna be expensive alright. Sport stars and celebrities come to this place. But I truly had no idea how expensive some of the drinks are until Dawn jokingly asked me to order a "King Louis XIII Black Pearl" cognac for fun.

The cost of it?

€14,000.

No shit. That's RM70,000!

What a ridiculous price to pay, considering it still comes out as piss in the end.

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

Unregistered

only bastards like you do that

Unregistered

wow.. seems like we both have the same taste in music: cafe del mar, hotel costes.. how bout claude challe? n i have almost complete collection from bargrooves~!! sometimes i do love MOS, hed kandi, but some of them too noisy.. i spent quite some dough on these CDs, but i get most of them via their official website & ebay, which is cheaper compared to retail shops.. i highly recommend "lounge anthology", 4CDs pack, do chk it out~

so in FB, if u being deleted by some1 will u be notified? juz wondering.. those gals muz be damn hate u~!!

Unregistered

woah, the other day i was watching some show and there was this martini in US which sells for 10k USD. I thought tat was absurd.

Didn't know Paris was crazier than tat! :S

Unregistered

No kenny, you're not the only one. Whahahaha.

Unregistered

70k, that could support me to study in the uk for 1.5 year edy..
or perhaps buying a Honda..

how could people actually spend that on... drinks?!?!

Unregistered

if you're not going to interact with them, befriend them
then, just remove friends..
nothing wrong also ma right?

i mean, yea la.. it's not very nice deleting others solely because they're ugly
but if you guys are not going to be friend,
why not delete??

i dont like having lots of strangers friends in my facebook..
i never do that though..

Unregistered

So bloody expensive for a drink?

Registered

mfcm, geez... too quick to jump to conclusion lah. Who said I delete them purely because they're UGLY girls?

I delete them purely because I have never met them and I don't know them at all.

Unregistered

lol. Kenny,
You didn't say why. If you included that then maybe ppl will be more forgiving. xD

Unregistered

Would be Heaven to get hold of that drink :)

Unregistered

the price of a car for a bottle of cognac..omg!!

Unregistered

"Is it wrong to add girls on Facebook, look through their photos, then quietly delete them afterwards?

Geez, that's kreeepy dude, stop it

Unregistered

Have a little respect Kenny. Obviously you added them even though you didn't know them. So saying you removed them after looking at their photos... you can join the dots can't you?

Unregistered

OMG! 70000RM.. OH MY GOD. *jaw open widely*

Unregistered

OMG. still can't believe! back to write the 2ns one. OMG OMG. She's really got guts. hahah xD. 70000RM jus like RM0.70 teh-c for her. OMG

Unregistered

I rather buy a car and blend it into juice and just drink it. -_____-

Unregistered

Er. That drink is for people with too much money to spare. Getting into debt for a drink is soooOOoo totally not worth it. Especially when you can spend that much to get a jetski/car/7 star hotel one night stay. I'd choose the jetski.

The barmaid's gorgeous!

Unregistered

kenny! if you dont know them how come you still go add them?O_O

Unregistered

Ooooommmgggg, tat is crazily expensive. Don't tell me that u hv ordered it??!!!

Unregistered

"Is it wrong to add girls on Facebook, look through their photos, then quietly delete them afterwards?"

Hmmm...dun delete me...though im not hawwwt...LOL..... y dun u set up a "kenny sia fans club"? looking forward to it:)

Unregistered

God Kenny, you're such an idiot. You think you're soooo hot that all the hot French gay men would be jumping on you? Sheesh. I think they'd have better taste than that. I can't believe you're representing Malaysia. So embarassing.

Unregistered

I think if you bought that drink, you would still be in Paris, trying to get that amount to pay your debts at Les Marais.. hehehehe

Unregistered

That is like WAY TOO EXPENSIVE! I rather you give me that amount of money, I promise it won't turn to piss. *grins*

Unregistered

i pay my life for that DRINK!!!!! Thats way too expensive DUDE~ RM70000, would be B$32000, WHat THE??!!

|Vicky|

Unregistered

well, considering the effort into making LOUIS XIII and aging it for decades . . . .it will be somuch cheaper to buy a bottle for around RM8k, i guess but the blackpearl is of a diff category.

Check it out here http://www.executivetraveller.net/images/food/BlackPearl.pdf

"Is it wrong to add girls on Facebook, look through their photos, then quietly delete them afterwards?"

I really really hate having to deal with asking "Do I know you?" and they replied "Can we be friends?"... Then I click 'Reject'.. STOP IT! IT GETS ON MY NERVES! I don't think those guys who manage to add the girls.. actually delete them afterwards.. hmm..

Unregistered

Hotel Costes is in Rue st Honore and Not Champs Elysees. Please amend that.

Unregistered

homophobic much?

Unregistered

freaking jews

Unregistered

http://news.my.msn.com/regional/article.aspx?cp-documentid=1794140

why we still do something so stupid like this to humiliate ourselves? what's wrong with the people up there?

like no brain cannot think leh!zzz.

Unregistered

People with nothing else to spend might give that drink a try...its superbly smooth and balanced.

Unregistered

Do we really need to discuss about who's wrong and who's right. =.="

Unregistered

Hey Kenny, thx for helping me answer on Generation We - it was for the Astro-4As scholarship interview this morning. I'm still waiting for the results. I read out your "comment" on my status and it made them laugh. ;) Lightened my presentation for a bit. Haha. Thanks man!

Unregistered

Drink that and Kenny would be selling off his properties.

Well, there are just people out there rich enough to burn their money.

Unregistered

OMG, can totally spend the money on better things.

Unregistered

hey!...kenny,have you grabbing the barmaid butt?..ha...ha...

Unregistered

hahaha i like the last sentence! =P

Unregistered

not fair!!! kenny can actually edit the comments rite?

Unregistered

Kenny, lu sua ku lar~~~ dun even know what is Louis Thirteen.....haha.....one of the best liqour on earth......its dozen mean u got the money that u can get it anyway anytime.....lots of airport duty free done dun have it....and KLIA definately dun have it!! i tried it b4......its hard to tell u how gd it is if u not really a drinker.........but i ever saw in duty free sell about 8000USD.........the 1 price tad is 14000 euro cos it is in the hotel.......u should try.....u got the money....i knew it....

Unregistered

ahh..kenny no worries...i do that on both facebook and friendster...haha...=P....

Unregistered

short talk --> it's ok to look through their photos, but why delete them afterwards? should keep them so can look at them one more time.

Unregistered

FUCK! this is way too much.RM70k wtf. wonder how much they giv u. half a cup?...

Unregistered

You might want to try Lali Puna, Explosions in The Sky, Kid Loco, Sigur Ros and Ulrich Schnauss if you're into chillout/easy listening sort of genre.

Unregistered

Wahlau the real price is actually only £5,000 !! xD

"
Nicknamed the King of cognacs, Louis XIII has since its creation been the cognac of Kings and famously enjoyed by the likes of Queen Elizabeth and Winston Churchill. Louis XIII is made up of some one thousand two hundred eaux-de-vie, originating solely from the grapes in the Grande Champagne region; the finest and most sought after vineyards in all of Cognac. The special edition Black Pearl is the brand’s first launch in 20 years and only a specified number of decanters will be commercially available in the entire United Kingdom retailing at £5,000. "

Unregistered

thats scary!70k could be better spent

Unregistered

Costes: Rue Saint-Honore is NEAR Champs Elysees, which is just exactly what Kenny said.

Unregistered

really envy that u can go around the world. hopefully i can do the same some time in the future.

Unregistered

really envy that you can travel around the world. hopefully i can do the same some day in the future

Unregistered

Bet girls would suck cock for a sip of that ambrosia!

Unregistered

haha....like the chinese saying, someone shit, will be another person gold. For Rm70,000 is ridiculous but for those who know how to drink even end up as piss still worth it....cheers!!!

Unregistered

OMG lucky you! I was in Paris for a day when I went to Europe for my honeymoon. Louis XIII is so expensive it makes you wonder how it tastes like. Now that's motivation enough for me to make more money!

Unregistered

Kenny, do girls pounce on you when you walk on the street? They don't? Then why in the world are you worried about the gays in Paris? It's not like you're hot or anything.

Unregistered

Yeah, don't always think you're that hot.. get a life

Unregistered

Kenny.....
..considering it still comes out as piss in the end!!

Now... that's pretty wise of you!! :) :)

Unregistered

Actually, its only 63,523.19 MYR, if its Euro, that is. But like loafer said, if its only 5k pounds, the actual price is 26,801.62 MYR.

Unregistered

Sorry bout the above comment, the actual post was from O.O, not loafers

Unregistered

Hi!! Thought that you might also like to know that the Buddha Bar chill out music also comes from a famous club of the same name in Paris.

If I am not mistaken the who's who also goes to that club...It has a 6m or was it a 4 m Buddha right in the middle of the club.

Just FYI...would be worth a visit the next time you are in Paris.

Unregistered

i think kenny is hot! HAHAHA!:DDDD

that cognac... zzz. drink le sure go heaven. bankrupt= no money eat= die. zzz.

Unregistered

Cool. Thanks for sharing:)

Unregistered


Doesnt matter if you are not hot. Maybe Ugly guys who can buy King Louis XIII Black Pearl in france can get hot chick jumping on them...or even gays...

Maybe that wont work in Sarawak coz...who the heck knows about King Louis XIII Black Pearl?

They probably thought it's another sequel to PIRATES OF CARIBBEAN movie...

Unregistered

it should be cheaper rigt?

Unregistered

kenny sia.. you look slimmer than in january 08. =)

Unregistered

*Sip*

*Sip*

*Gulp*

There goes the neighbourhood.

Registered

Wayne, hahaha! you're absolutely correct!

Unregistered

Damn.. I need to go Costes at least once in my life!

Unregistered

If it's expensive, then dont to Paris then. Tsk tsk tsk ..fat boy wants to see the tour .. such a cliche` ... you would die painfully of cardiac arrest in 1 year from now ... eh, Nirvana got a spare room ... want to be neighbors?

Unregistered

Paris is beautiful! I wish I can visit some day.

Unregistered

Congrats on your 1/4 century of existence! Reading your archives reminded me of Perth, a place I've not yet go back since leaving in early 1988. Man, u

Unregistered
