E@L has been trying to overcome the chronic lack of a supportive emotional attachment with a mature (-minded but young-bodied) and intelligent member of the
foreign incomprehensible inscrutable opposite sex and with it being more than 2 weeks since he enjoyed a double Moon River at Eden Club in Bangkok, he needs SOMETHING...
He has tried abstinence, but that means, like, abstinence...
He has tried a banana-walnut ice-cream in a fresh waffle-cone, but that is SOOOO un-diet friendly.
He has tried home cooking, but people die.
He thought he'd try shopping.
The perspicacious amongst may have noticed an addition to E@L's lounge-room on one of the photographs on the previous blog entry.
Ya! Some new Mission782 speakers. Cool. E@L can't actually link you to the correct page as it is one of those fucking flash-based sites - but here is the description:
The Mission 782 Compact Tower offers high definition, monitor class loudspeaker in a graceful and visually attractive package. The 782 is an exquisite piece of furniture for the serious audiophile. The 782 bases its performance on a 165mm Nomex bass unit fitted to a reflex enclosure that extends low frequency output to reach the lowest fundamental of bass guitar...
Je repeatez: Cooo-oool!!! And that's E@L, "the serious audiophile" talkin...
But that's not all. Does the name Moran mean anything to you? OK he's the funny guy in Black Books, but E@L in this instance is talking about Moran Furniture here. The best leather uphoslterer in Australia. OK that's a little like Mel Brooks saying, "We are world famous in Poland!" in To Be Or Not To Be, but you get the point - they are damn good! They have a cut-away chair in Barang-Barang in Plaza Singapura if you want to check out their solid construction.
E@L has always wanted to recline on his own plush soft leather couch and lie back and snore in his own ultra-comfortable recliner. No! to read books in of course, not to fall asleep in in front of the telly! Something
Just to have some quality stuff around himself for once in his freaking money deprived life. Fair dinkum, no more second best.
E@L has some cash. OK, it's an expense account refund, but it's still money.
And he managed to score a 35% per cent discount by taking the on-floor stock even though the colours of the recliner and the lounge were not exactly perfect matches - antique red v. antique chestnut (you'd never notice unless you weren't functionally blind - groan, OK, second best one last time!), but the alternative was a 3 month wait and an extra $1K on the bottom line (no on-floor discount.) So, in the end, he basically got the recliner for 20% of normal price. And it is SOOOOOOO comfortable. It is Homer Simspon compatible!
E@L bought the 2-seater and the recliner chair of this model. Luxury!
All he has to do is be in Singapore frequently enough to enjoy them.
OTHER MONKEYS SAID
what a typical man's apartment. no sign of a woman's influence anywhere from this view. not that that's a bad thing.
you have a large big-toe.
We agree. Three cheers for that! (We presume you are referring to the image in the previous post.)
Note also the three remotes and a screwdriver adjacent to E@L's hallicus magnus. The fouth remote is on the couch next to his gluteus maximus.
E@L has several theories about remotes. Ask him some/next time.
