Weekend Interlude



Unless you learn her various switches














and understands her need for retail therapy,




















you can't avoid the arguments which you'll lose anyway.

















Get it?


OK now you can go build your own 1Clan

Hi ma'am

So, before you start throwing the challenge, I guess I'd better take the make a pre-emptive strike and throw in my usual basal, insensitive, Neanderthal and totally tasteless comment about how women think.

Hmmm, let's see... maybe you've beaten me to the punch again, ma'am ;-)

I'm beginning to enjoy these sparring sessions, ma'am. Let's get my mates Tommy and Oldstock to to join?

NanaDJ said...

Zendra,
I think those analysis and conclusions must have been formulated by men to prove that we are illogical,complicated and confused species.I await with bated breath what bangkai's mates have to say!So what says you Tommy and Old Stock?

kay_leeda said...

Sawadeekap...

Whoooaaa...so complicated ka?? Where got!!! To those men who may hv problems understanding us, go figure lah; the math is a lot simpler.

mamasita said...

I've always been poor in Maths..thats why I always FAIL to understand men..especially the old pouchy grouchy goat I'm stuck with.

I calculated wrongly with my fingers and toes..

Uncle Lee said...

Hi Zendra, where were you when I was handing out my Resume? Ha ha. I really love your great sense of humour.
Women like you don't grow on trees.
And under different circumstances, having a date with you will always bring up the moon an hour early.

Love the very interesting formulas, though I never scored above 60% in all my Maths or Arithmetic, but I sure agree to what you posted, ha ha.

What would we men do without women?
You stay beautiful and have a great weekend, Lee.

Tommy Yewfigure said...

Zee, (as a woman on the whole), r u coming to me with a solution or r u part of the problem?…muahahaha. Ni bolih kira, ‘crying out for help’ lah. Anyway, U ought to be congratulated & commended for coming out & acknowledge that u (as a woman on the whole) has these ‘problems’/ weaknesses/ shortcomings/ flaws.

This is all good to own up & recognized your own faults. It takes a strong / brave person to admit that they r wrong & begin to take the first step to rectify these problems. I’m confident that u (as a woman on the whole) can get there if u r more focus & not so easily distracted (like that GAP illustration u so kindly displayed lah):)

You know the real reason why men never win an argument in the marriage period? It becoz they’ve got ‘conscience & compassion’, e.g. never kick someone (so messed up) when they r down. There’s this thing called a ‘Gentlemen Conduct’ (Where got such thing as a ‘Women Conduct’ one leh..heheheh). And oso a Hard man is Good to find.

RA, did u only take 6 minutes to buy that yellow Alfa?

Good luck ladies,

Tommy
P/S - I envy your clan get together, bonding so strong one :)

Zendra-Maria said...

MatB, I think I'm beginning to like you ;)

Zendra-Maria said...

NanaDJ, I thank the logical men who put up those beautiful illustrations. We now have the license and the privilege to ACT illogical, complicated and confused AND get away with it too. Don't you think so?

Capt's Longhouse said...

,,,the trouble with man when dealing about women issues, man don't use the upper brains but from his smaller head down under.
,,,women don't have such problems since they have only one head to utilize all the time-lah. hahaha.!!
,,,yaa shopping shopping shopping never stopping too...gee women !

Zendra-Maria said...

Sawadeekap, the problem why they can't figure us out, Kay, is because they are only able to figure out what's inside figures rather than what's inside hearts and minds hehe... whereas we women, we possess intuition, we just know....

Zendra-Maria said...

mamasita, I'm stumped! HAHAHAH...

Zendra-Maria said...

Dear Lee, had I been around while you were handing out your Resume, I would have simply chucked it aside anyway... I would have been baited by your souped-up Alfa hahaha.

What?!!! Only one moon? I would have been going for TWO moons.

You have a good weekend Lee (what's left of it anyway) - love your latest stories :)

Zendra-Maria said...

Tommy, this entry is far from recognising flaws lah, it's a lesson in life, perhaps something that bangkai might be able to use to spice up his English seminars, eh MatB?

Anyway as Uncle Lee so aptly put it, what would you all do without US the generic woman? What with the subtle differences between each model and each make, we sure make YOUR mornings interesting *wink, *wink

And so thank you for picking up the lesson on "Conscience and Compassion", you're quite a fast learner, I must admit hehe

PS - 1Clan wouldn't have happened had we all decided to scatter all over the world and multiply :)

Zendra-Maria said...

Tok Uban, that is an outstanding revelation! Can I become your friend on Facebook? The names Zendy Zee ;)

Tommy Yewfigure said...

Oh Maria-Maria, u can see how things normally get out of hand when different people r presented with a set of pictures, illustration, facts or figures & how they (like to) interpret what comes to their mind? They’ll jump into conclusion depending on which side of the fence they sit on, based on their pride & prejudices & so on. Yewgofigure lah..hehehe.

The point is ‘sensitive’ matters needs to be discussed behind closed doors between people that r matured enough to understand / respect each other’s opinion, agree to disagree & come up with an amicable solution without having either sides to lose ‘face’ especially not with someone with a so Leng Chai face like mine, not to mention ‘perceived’ as extremely sensitive :)){no shame one leh}

Hey Capt, u taking a dig at me or what, with your ‘that small head down under’ remark….hehehe. That pouchy, grouchy goat had oreadi warned me how pirates like u / Jack Sparrow think alike (think of a game plan as he goes along, ‘Scratch only when u feel gatal?’)…muahaha.

Hey Zee, u know that GAP illustration, in my case, Ah Soh only takes 6 minutes to spent $876 on cosmetics / anti ageing cream whereas I take 3 hours-26 minutes to spend $33 on music cds/dvds. Ya she make my morning interest, wink2**, u shud see Ah Soh without her make-up each morning, soooo scariiiii, makes me feel so keen to get to work in a jiffy.

Cheers,
Tommy

Cat-in-Sydney said...

Aunty Zendra,
Phew! This site's too hot for a cat to handle. Am going back to my cave. Oh, hi everyone... tatatititutu

Zendra-Maria said...

Tommy, ya lorr sensitive matters must be behind closed doors, first make sure no hidden cameras and microphones lah weii.

How can u talk about Ah Soh like that, it's sensitive issue mah. Where's your compassion tsk,tsk,tsk? Eh I like Ah Soh, so efficient one...

Zendra-Maria said...

Cat, tata... but you lost your meow..purr

Capt's Longhouse said...

Tommy,

,,,I was refering to the small head down under between the legs-lah hahaha. Never on the BIG head in Oz land, ever !! meh... and do you know its God's will that a man gets what he sow, every morning too hahaha !!!!.
,,,no worries matey, do have a good day ! after the morning fright too !!.hahaha.... Me and Jane, both are far away from such funny faces so early but only the sea breeze and treasures washed ashore for me to pick and choose as recycle items for the Beach Bar.
,,,the new season is just around the corner and indeed looking forward to many pretty faces to surprise me every morning lalala

Tommy Yewfigure said...

Selamat pagi Zee / Capt,

Well I’ll be stumped as in Cricket’s term, today is the final day of the 3rd Test between the Australian & Pakistan. Mohd ASiF & his team ain’t doing too well lah.

Capt, u interested in Cricket too?, getting out by LBW, ‘leg before wicket’….hahaha, u disclosed too much details (re: down under) lah, all the women’s blushing now. In most dismissals, cricketer gets out caught behind by wicket keeper or by out fielders, beside getting clean bowled or LBW but behind closed doors they most likely to get caught ‘wet’ allegedly lah….hehehe.

Zee, u remembers this song by Loretta Lynn;

My baby makes me proud
Lord don't he makes me proud
He never makes a scene
By hanging onto me in a crowd.

'Cause people like to talk
Lord don't they love to talk
But when they turn out the lights
I know he'll be leavin' with me.

And when we get behind closed doors
And I let my hair hang down
And he makes me glad that I'm a woman
Oh, no one knows what goes on behind closed doors.

My baby makes me smile
Lord don't he make me smile
He's never far away or too tired to say
Ah, honey I want you.

I'm always a lady
Just like a lady should be
But when they turn out the lights
I show 'em what a woman I can be.

And when we get behind closed doors
And I let my hair hang down
And he makes me glad that I'm a woman
Oh, no one knows what goes on behind closed doors.

Behind Closed Doors

Tommy the MCP.

P/S – That’s ‘most charming person’ lah, not what’s comes first to your mind.

Zendra-Maria said...

Tommy, what else for them to do while waiting for overs to be over? Real weird game this cwicket.

Oldstock said...

Oops... sorry to be missing out on this post. Was outstation for the past two days.

Anyway, just to add to the `Chances of winning an argument chart' is the following quote, which I'm sure many of us have seen before :

A woman always has the last word in any argument. Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

And here's my take on the classic : Behind every successful man is a woman. Behind the downfall of many successful men is probably ANOTHER woman.

Aah.. women, what are we without you :-)

Zendra-Maria said...

Oldstock, what are men without women? Gay?
