The Inaugural MPH Breakfast Club for LitBloggers.

Thanks to Kenny Mah's mad photoshopping skilz, we have a nifty poster to stick on our blogs and make this event look all hunky dory:

And I must say, it does look hunkier and dorier! Open to everyone, especially if you have a blog. I hope they've got scones there. Been ages since I've had scones for breakfast. See ya there!


  1. scones? for breakfast?????

    is that what reading too much murakami does for you?

  2. Haha! If so, I'll be having spaghetti for breakfast!

  3. Hunkier and dorier? Ah never had Bowie associations with breakfast before, but from now on everytime I bite into a waffle I shall think of Life on Mars... ;)

  4. You know, I've never had any Bowie associations with the phrase until you mentioned it. How weird.

  5. damn i missed this.
    really wanted to go for it but i've got like a week full of papers to sit for next week and am hardly prepared. do notify me of anything else like this henceforth! -cries-

  6. Not too weird, Ted. Bowie released a cult-classic album titled Hunky Dory, of which my favourite song is Life on Mars. Or was your question rhetorical?

    And Ash, if you missed the events, you can still read about it - I wrote a round-up of the readers and happenings here. It was seriously fun...

  7. Nah, I'm no big Bowie fan. I only knew about the album when I googled it after you mentioned it :D

  8. Ted...where's the cute cow? I love the cow. What donate the rights to use the cow on my website. I'm in love with it.

Lesson: Commemorative Covers are Lame.

Well, I got the first day cover that commemorates the 35th anniversary of the establishment diplomatic relations between China and Malaysia that I mentioned a couple of posts ago. Except that it's not a first day cover, it's a commemorative cover, which is a slightly different beast. I guess I should read the news article properly next time! The difference between the two is that first day covers are specially-designed envelopes stuck on with specially-designed stamps, and marked with a specially-designed postmark. A commemorative cover is a specially-designed envelope... and that's it. All in all, it's an unremarkable affair, especially if you're used to well-designed first day covers (not that Malaysian first day covers are well-designed... but I digress). Oh sure, a commemorative cover has a stamp printed right on to it but that's just like an overglorified aerogramme. Lame. On the whole, what a disappointment. I haven't been collecting first day cover

HOWTO: Get Rid of Silverfish

The bane of every book collecting person: the Silverfish. DUN DUN DUNNNNN!!! How to get rid of them? If one book has been infected, place it inside an air-tight plastic bag along with some silica gel desiccant. The silica gel is important to get rid of moisture, because you will now place the sealed plastic bag with the book in it inside the freezer. Leave it in there for a couple of days so that those bugs catch their death of cold. If you're feeling particularly paranoid, (like I usually am) feel free to leave the plastic bag in there for a week. If they're not dead, then you might likely have an infestation of zombie silverfish , which is out of the scope of this blogpost. But what if a whole colony of silverfish decided to invade your whole bookcase? Then you have to make sure you're ready for war. Place a generous amount of silica gel (or if you can find it, diatomaceous earth) behind your books at the back of the shelves so that moisture levels remain low.
