D.I.D Monday! From Down Under

Firstly thank you Ken for this opportunity.
And for the rest of you who are going to read it
A little background to me - born in Malaysia, went to Auckland (New Zealand) to study medicine, now working in Adelaide (Australia)

Off we go on this adventure
I get woken up by work at some ungodly hour I stumble out of bed and grab my 372 to accompany me

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

I need to get to work fast! So I dream up this beast to get me there pronto!

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

I park here
[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

But I forgot my special parking permit, and this guy was watching me! Could he be Kayser Soze or one of his goons (from the usual suspects)???

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

I got my eye on you!

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

An alien cop! Tried, found guilty and sentenced without a trial
Looks like an ordinary yacht to take my to my prison sentence
I get dizzy during the journey they spiked my meal!

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

Before I pass out, I see a wormhole developingwhat is going on here?

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

When I wake up, I see this in the window

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

A beautiful sight, but where am i?
Eventually I get left on my desert prisonon an alien planet

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

Thankfully I am given a chance to bring some of my things with me

2 watches
My IWC _ for diving, and fishing for food

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

And the 372 that was on my wrist when I left home

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

2 Songs well one song, and one album in my case

Weezer the Blue Album love this album, their debut and easily their best work

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

Queen I want to break free, because there is no way I am not trying to escape from here

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

One meal well that is a tough oneI am from Malaysia originally, so all the usual Malaysian hawker foodnasi lemak, char kuey teow, curry laksa

[IMG][linked image][/IMG] [IMG][linked image][/IMG] [IMG][linked image][/IMG]

I saw this saying once, I have followed its advice sinceConsidering what has happened, such wise words

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

Dessert would be a combination of things curry puffs, ice kacang, fried bananas, soya bean milk, soya bean jelly

[IMG][linked image][/IMG] [IMG][linked image][/IMG] [IMG][linked image][/IMG] [IMG][linked image][/IMG] [IMG][linked image][/IMG]

One Movie My all time favourite The Usual Suspects

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

One book - One of the best authors IMHO, and this book is amazing, read it countless times. Doctors by Erich Segal

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

One Memory I would say my wedding day and the day all my girls were born but that would be four. So to reduce it down to oneI would have to say this one

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

the day she arrived, she opened my eyes to a whole new world not just watches, but mates! They say you never forget your first, my first. Pam 312

One Photo - My family

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

One person to bring with me my wife of course

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

We have a great timebeautiful sunsets etc

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

But eventually we get bored. So we build a raft

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

We explore the other islands, and find this

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

A genie in a bottle who grants us three wishes
My first wish is, to get back home!!!
My wish is granted, soon we are winging our way home

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

and the special key to open the door

[IMG][linked image][/IMG]

Thanks all for reading and the opportunity to do this. It has been great fun and I hope you enjoyed reading it.

I know I can be a little demented or brilliant???

Cheers from Down Under
