Absolut Love Mural, Frangipani: In An Absolut World…

Absolut Love Art Gallery.jpg
What a pleasant surprise it was last night when McCutie and I headed down to Changkat Bukit Bintang for dinner. It seems a cool Vodka brand has hijacked the facade of Frangipani to put up an amazing art mural/installation. I reckoned they should just leave it there forever! It has really added a much needed bohemian quality to this already fabulous street.


In an Absolut World… John Lennon was not murdered. He would have lived on to be the poster child (or grand daddy) for Absolut Vodka’s latest campaign. His kumbaya philosophy would have been the perfect analogy of how living ‘In An Absolut World…‘ should be.

However, I’m no zen monkey nor will I ever represent my country (heck, there’s no countries in an Absolut world according to the late Mr.Lennon) in a Miss-whatever contest. So forgive me if my dream is rather shallow. In my Absolut world, every week should only consists of three days: Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Here’s a blow-by-blow why that should be the case:

7:30am – Wake up, wash up, and get dressed for Casual Friday
8:30am – Have a good cuppa coffee & a fantastic breakfast
9:00am – Start work (one’s gotta earn a living after all!) and secretly countdown til 5:00pm.
12:00pm – Have a long lunch with your colleagues because it’s a Friday. Before you know it, there’s only 3 more hours until the end of work-day.
5:00pm – HAPPY HOUR!
8:00pm -Have a fabulous dinner at a new restaurant in town and party all through the night.

Saturday & Sunday
Do Not Disturb! It’s the freaking weekend and I need my rest.

And repeat all over again come the start of the week, Friday.

How cool is that eh? Work one day and it’s the weekend. Okay, enough of wishful thinking. Time to start on my Friday and my countdown until 5:00pm. Have a good weekend ahead everybody. The usual food post will resume next week.

Note: Absolut Vodka has not been secretly paying me to mention their brand like a million times over. I just happened to be a fan of their branding campaigns. However, I wouldn’t mind if they did send a 2009 limited edition Absolut Rock for Christmas!

    I assume that you had a great weekend last week :)
    Absolut was the first liquor that I'd ever tried when I was introduced to alcohol :)

    Joe: What Frangi review? I'm not that rich to makan there lah.

    J: U can apply. But there's a long waiting list. Just like Malaysian citizenship.

    J2KFM: Nice to let your imagination run wild every now and then

    Ciki: Cool hor?

    AhPa: It's ok. Your cakes are delicious and the world deserves to taste them.

    Nic: Yeah, appointed by me. Think siao auntie Yoko will smack me upside down if she finds out. So much for LOVE.

    Sean: Actually it does look like a rainbow campaign eh with all that cheesy pick up line. Notice how there isn't any female robots? LOL

    TNG: *wink* Shh…don't say so loud.

    Thule: I did. What about you?
