Last week in Penang, whilst checking out preparations for the Nine Emperor Gods Festival, I spotted these men sleeping under a Chinese opera stage. Kinda like George sleeping under his desk in Seinfeld. :mrgreen:

Meanwhile because of my alcohol withdrawal, I haven’t had any tea …

Or coffee …

If you can imagine a state where you are fidgety but you are also nodding off in the mid-afternoon, that would be me. 😛

    I cannot last past 11am without coffee. The thing is, when I try cutting back on caffine, I would be yawning like crazy that people around me think I’ve not slept all night or is just plain bored. So I kept my caffine addiction to look professional.hahaha!

    Ahh…chinese opera. Them good ol’ days. I was under the impression that nowadays its all skimpily dressed women singing badly. Who here has ever sat down to a real life chinese opera before hands up?

    Dude… why don’t you just continue to drink, but less each day? That way, it won’t hurt as much. Just start with a Keg and a couple bottles of Whiskey..

    sourrain: about the caffeine, that’s me too with the yawning. And my legs would be shaking, you know “shake leg”? Hahahha! And nope – never ever seen a Chinese opera. Can’t understand it!

    Jeremy: that’s some sound advice you got there. 😛

    For me, I try to take in tea (Green Tea, Earl Grey) for keeping the Zzzz Monster away.

    If that’s doesn’t help then I have a dosage of coffee, preferable TV Brand coffee from my mom’s hometown Kluang,Johor
