Unintentional FFK-er

Gah! I was so busy flipping homemade pancakes and stuffing them into my face that I totally missed today's lunch date and just realised it 1½ hours too late! T_T I'm so, so sorry, Bear! I promise I'll dedicate a whole hour to you tomorrow!

DIY Pancakes

I've been craving pancakes for the longest time now. (Maybe it's cos I can't forget the amazing pancakes I had at Café Café. =p) So after sending The Fiancé off to work this morning, I decided to satisfy that craving by making my own pancakes. I drove to IGA, Nedlands to get me a box of pancake mix. (Don't judge. I don't remember ever making them without the mix before.)

Got inside the store and looked high and low but didn't find any pancake mixes. Bummer. But if you know me at all, you'll know that once I set my mind to something I'm passionate about, by hook or by crook, I'll make. it. work. (Wow, looks like something stuck from my 3+ years with Small Boss at MCKL! Haha.)

So, undeterred and still as determined as ever,
I Googled the recipe for homemade pancakes.

Found one that suggested ingredients that made sense to me (yeah, I have a very meticulous recipe-picking process =p), and set off to look for Self Raising Flour. (I had everything else I needed at home – eggs, butter, sugar and salt.) I found it soon enough. Right next to a whole row of instant pancake mix! *slaps forehead*

But whatever.

By then, I was more excited about going DIY so I put down the mix and headed to the counter with the flour. Drove home and got to work. Worked my muscles mixing the ingredients together.
  • 2 cups self raising flour
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 60 grams melted butter

And 1 hour later... TADAAA!!!

I knew we had a tub of honey at home. But upon checking, I saw that it was crystallised. Not visually appealing at all. And I know they say that honey never goes bad but trust me, IT DOES.

I sat next to the CEO of a worldwide honey supplier/producer on one of my flights back to KL from Penang last year and we got to talking. He told me that in its purest form with zero water content, honey never goes bad. But the honey we buy off the shelves and in the stores ALL contain traces of water. Especially those that come from countries with high humidity. So, yes. Honey DOES go bad.

Anyway, back to my pancake story.

So since honey was out of the question, I decided to go with butter and brown sugar. (We don't have white sugar at home.) And I must say... it went really, really well with the pancakes! Which were awesome sauce, too, I might add. Hahaha.

Pancakes with Butter and Brown Sugar.

Imma telling you, this on-a-whim-cooking thing
is starting to get really fun! And fattening, too!

The Date

I guess that when an engagement is announced,
it is common that the next thing people ask is:

"So, when's the big day?"


"Have you picked a date yet?"


"When? When? When? Dammit,

I mean, it's understandable and really no big surprise, right? Especially since that's what most engaged couples decide on first – so that can kiasu and chup hotel/venue fast fast =p – even before thinking about wedding gowns, bridal shoes or colour schemes. Even most of the self-help wedding books I've been browsing at Borders suggest coming to a decision ASAP.

Secretly snapped this one during my last visit to Borders.

But it's not quite the same for The Fiancé and I. I've been stumbling over words and going mmm and umm every time people ask me that cos – well, this is embarrassing (and depressing) to say but...

I. Don't. Know.

Yup, I don't know when
the wedding's gonna be held.

The big ballpark figure as of now is 2011. And unfortunately, it looks to me like that's as detailed as it's gonna get around here for the time being. -_-'''

It's tough planning a wedding from so far away. Especially since the parentals haven't officially met up for The Talk yet. That plus, we haven't actually had time to sit and discuss the budget yet so booking a hotel is a total no-go without deciding how many zeros we're planning to throw into the big day.

So, yeah. Now you know and
no longer have to ask me when. Haha.

The Bridal Shoe Dilemma

So tell me...

The Price Of A Fairytale

I actually stumbled upon this poem awhile ago. But since I was recently asked how I "grew Fairytale Love in my backyard", I'm sharing it here:

Cinderella walked on broken glass,
Sleeping Beauty let a whole lifetime pass.

Belle fell in love with a hideous beast,
Jasmine married a common thief.

Ariel walked on land for love and life,
Snow White barely escaped a knife.

It was all about blood, sweat, and tears,
Because love means facing your biggest fears.

– Author Unknown


Dear Fry,

This is me sharing "the works of the bandage"
in the words of others far more eloquent than I. =)

Pam Song


Every one of those Disney Princesses took a risk before their Happily Ever After came along. Prince Charming didn't arrive on a Disney-engraved silver platter. Neither did he swoop in and save them from a possible spinsterhood because... well, come on. How can Prince Charming come a-swooping when it's him you're on the hunt for?

Nope, every one of those girls – fictional as they may be – took a risk. They left their castle, abandoned a rainforest
, crashed a party, ran into the woods and came out of the sea. They took a risk to get to where they ended up. A risk for the possibility – not even a guarantee, mind you – of finding love beyond their comfort zones.

So, Love is a risk.

(Because let's be honest here:
Trust is scary. Insecurity is real.
And Sacrifice is difficult. Right?)

And to love is to be willing to risk it all
without counting it Loss if you lose it all.

When you really think about it, to even begin investing in the life of another is already a risk in itself, right? And in love, you're either all in, or nothing. If those who dare are those who win, I guess you've just gotta be bold enough to sai lang your heart away if you want your jackpot bad enough. Even if you don't know the cards in the other person's hand. Scary... but necessary sometimes.

Like so many things in life, you've gotta risk it all to gain it all. And if – IF – you pick the right person to sai lang your heart with, you might just find yourself winning the jackpot and walking out of Life's casino with Prince Charming in the bag. =)

My Everyday Lunch Date

Nope, it's not the Fiancé. He's been busy. Instead, I've been having solo lunches with Mr Bear Grylls via Man vs. Wild every day since Monday. And he's awessum! Haha. Sometimes he makes me laugh, sometimes he makes me gasp, sometimes he makes my eyes go big, and sometimes he makes my jaw drop. But most of the time... he just grosses me out no end until I forget to chew my food and gag on whatever's already halfway down my oesophagus. Blergh.

Oh, Look! One More!

Hahaha. Thanks, Flik Teoh! =p

p/s: Why your FB profile pic sooo long wan??

Facebook Is Foncusing

Ever since I got my hands on the iPhone, I've been trying to keep up with my Facebook account. I don't update often but I do use it to keep with with my friends' lives. It guess helps cos I don't want to draw apart just cos I'm in Australia or cos we no longer hang out.

So, yeah. All's good when I'm Facebooking on the iPhone. But when I'm on Facebook via my MBP, I see things I don't quite understand.

Like this:

I found that on Okui's Facebook page.
And I'm No.1 on her Top Friends list!!!
I like being No.1 so... yay, I guess!

But but but... What the heck does it mean if you're No.1 on your friend's Top Friend list!? @_@ Your friend considers you their best friend? Or is it one of those apps that measure how many times they've viewed your profile? And it just means they've just been kaypo-ing your profile the most compared to how much they've kaypo-ed their other friends' profiles. Haha.

Me no un! But whatever, I'm No.1! =p


In case you were wondering, this is Okui:

I wrote a post about her status update
earlier this week.

Nuffnang's Got The Greatest Team!

After publishing yesterday's Munchy's Muzic advertorial, I wrote a post but didn't know if I could publish it so hot on the heels of the advertorial. (In normal cases, advertorials are supposed to appear as the first post for at least 48 hours. But since this was a short mention, I had question marks plastered across my face. Haha.) So, I asked the team at Nuffnang.

Sara Khoo from the Ads Ops team
replied. And wow! In 5 minutes! I wasn't expecting that! (Too used to lau yah Malaysian service already. Haha. =p) And since nobody on this planet ever calls me by my full first name, I proceeded to tell her to just call me 'Pam'. And then... she surprised me further.

And made my day. =)

Haha. I haven't even met Sara before!
Aren't the people at Nuffnang amazing??

It isn't just a company;
it's also a community. =)

Real Rainbow This Time =p

Gum on the Wall has been sitting at the top of Tinki Talks for awhile now. But colourful and perky as it may be, chewed gum isn't exactly... well, pre-wedding perfect, now is it? Haha.

Click here to jump to original post.

So here's something a little more relevant
...but still not pre-wedding crazy. =)

Mr Sun's Back In Business

The weather's been good this past week. But since I hadn't really been out and about town during the warmer parts of the day, I didn't realise quite how warm it's gotten around here. Until I went to Harbour Town for lunch yesterday.

You see, Harbour Town is an open air shopping centre. So with the sun shining and a cool breeze blowing, it felt perfectly fine walking around with a jacket on. But after paying for parking and entering the car, I almost died from the heat. So friggin' hot! So, I rolled down my window. As did The Fiancé with his. But after feeding the ticket machine with our paid ticket, the dude selamba only proceeded to roll up his window... and mine.

Pam Song: Eh, so hot!

The Fiancé: *shocked* Aiyoh! @_@

Pam Song: *blur* Wat?

The Fiancé: You cannot tahan hot already!

Pam Song: *realisation sets in* Ya hor!!?

It's true. Cannot tahan hot already. We drove all the way back home with the windows halfway down. My hair like siao liddat but I think the cool breeze was worth the mess. I would have died otherwise. That means... Die lah when I go back to Malaysia. Really die. T_T

Not happy with the sun.

Anyway, while waiting for my lasagne to cook, I decided to check on the weather. This was what Google had to say at 7:26PM yesterday:

Yep, it was 18ºC. At 7:26PM. P.M. YO!


And no wonder I was warm earlier! Top temp was 23ºC! That's like... almost-Malaysia on a cold, stormy night! Darn it. Now, I'm starting to dread the day I get off my flight outta here. I know I'm so gonna melt as soon as I get hit by the hot and humid Malaysian weather. -_-''' Boy, oh boy, I can already see me grouching through my first week back. I pity my folks in advance for having to deal with me then. Heh.

Fairytale Love

I know I've always said that fairytale love doesn't exist. But now I'm thinking... maybe it does. And that maybe I've just been looking too far beyond the fence to realise that I've got it growing right in my own backyard. =)

My First Lasagne!

Let me first tell you that
I've never made lasagne before.

Like, E-V-E-R.

In fact, to be really honest with you, I've never actually cooked anything non-Chinese before I came to Australia. HAHA! You see, I'm a hardcore Chinese cuisine kinda girl. I love a good wok, a non-stick frying pan, and a deep, deep pot. Deep fry, stir-fry, everything fry... or just full-on boil, boil, boil. Don't believe me, ask my ex-housemates. Hahaha. =p

Sure, theoretically – just theoretically – I knew that Spaghetti Bolognese couldn't be all that difficult to whip up. And after cooking it half a dozen times since I arrived, I now know for sure that it's not. At least it's not if you use ready made pasta sauce. =p (Leggo's is best. Get the "Bolognese with Red Wine" variety. It's awesome!)

Anyway, during my visit to Woolworths for groceries last Friday, while browsing the pasta section, I decided – on a whim – to try cooking something I never cooked before, never thought I'd ever try cooking or even ever have the ability to cook. Haha. That day, I bought my first pack of Lasagne. =)

I didn't bother checking online
for recipes or anything. (Lazy.)

I just modified the recipe
on the back of the box. (Smart.)


Today, I finally put all the ingredients together.

  • Lasagne Sheets
  • Bolognese Sauce
  • Shredded Cheddar & Mozzarella Cheese Mix
  • 2 Cups Milk
  • Butter
  • Cornflour
  • Salt
  • Pepper

The only things missing in that picture and the list *points above* are the 250gms of Premium Minced Beef I used in the Lasagne's beef layers, and the Olive Oil I cooked the beef with.

To my surprise, it didn't take very long for me to prepare the sauces. I just had to keep an eye on the cream sauce all the time to ensure that it didn't boil while I focused on cooking the meat sauce. (I prepared both the meat sauce and the cream sauce at the same time. Multi-tasking, bay-beh! =p)

After I was done, I just layered them all up, starting with meat and ending with cream and a sprinkle of cheese. Well... at this point, it didn't look very promising. -_-'

Yuck. No colour wan. T_T

But whatever. What's done is done so
I threw the whole tray into the oven,
and left the oven to do its magic.

And boy, was there magic.
Just look at that! So pretty!

And hey, I made that! Yay, me! =D

But Look is only a third of the battle. Smell's the other third. But the Taste is where it's really going to count. Having said that, the lasagne smelt pretty good coming out of the oven. So, that was promising. Haha. But although it smelt good... I'm proud to say that it tasted grrreat! Haha!

But I guess the most fulfilling part of baking
my first lasagne came when I got this:

"Thanks for dinner, honey. It was awesome."

That was the best part of my lasagne dinner. =)

Ok, enough mush for the day. Haha.
Back to Homemade Lasagne talk.

Whatever it is, in the future, if ever anybody asks if I can bake lasagne from scratch, I can proudly say, "Lasagne? Pfft. Been there, done that. Throw me something harder." HAHAHA. (No, I'm kidding. You know I'm kidding, right? Please don't make me cook anything harder. Thank you veli mush. Over and out.)

First Try At DIY

I impulse-purchased a pack of Woolworths Select Cola Jelly the first time I went grocery shopping alone in the city. (That's almost 2 months ago, by the way. =p) Just for fun. And cos I like eating jelly. =) Made it once for dessert when I cooked dinner for the boys in KL, too. That was lime flavoured, I think. This time I bought Cola.

Lazy to flip the picture for you lah.

The home brand was the cheapest one on the shelves and... well, you can't really go wrong with jelly, right? Wrong. Wrong, wrong, WRONG!

You see, I had no way of measuring anything accurately. (The house I'm currently living in has no measuring cups or spoons – AT ALL!) So, I ended up putting too much water in the mix and that ultimately resulted in 4 v-e-r-y watery cups of jelly. -_-'''

Project DIY Cola Jelly – FAIL MAX!

But wait! This is Pam Song we're talking about. Cummon! There's always, always, ALWAYS a way to turn things around and salvage the situation. *determined face* After a little bit of thinking, I decided I can't exactly re-liquefy the jelly over the stove again since it's already been refrigerated. So, the next best thing is to just leave the watery jelly in the fridge and wait till the water evaporates due to low humidity levels in the cold.

Well, 1.5 months and a lot of patience later...


Perfect jelly! HAHAHA.
No, seriously. It's p-e-r-f-e-c-t!

That round dip in the middle of the jelly
tells me how much water has evaporated. =p

I'm enjoying it now as I write this post. Man, I totally deserve a pat on the back for my jelly rescue operation lah. Haha. So proud of myself. Sure, I screwed up in the beginning. But with a little bit of thinking, all's right in the world again. =)

Anyway, in the time between that jelly mishap and now, I've cooked and baked a handful of other stuff that have been... well, IMHO, pretty kind to the taste buds. Even if I do say so myself. Haha. Guess I've come a long way in the kitchen since watery jelly, huh? =)


NOTE: This post was actually written the day my Internet curfew started. But since I lost connectivity and couldn't get the embed codes for the MV, it had to wait. It's not old news though. SO not old news. This song's still rocking socks in a big way. Enjoy!

Artists: B.o.B Featuring Hayley Williams from Paramore
Song Title: Airplanes

[Hayley Williams]
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now (wish right now, wish right now)
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now (wish right now, wish right now)

I could use a dream or a genie or a wish
To go back to a place much simpler than this
Cause after all the partyin’ and smashin’ and crashin’
And all the glitz and the glam and the fashion
And all the pandemonium and all the madness
There comes a time where you fade to the blackness
And when you’re staring at that phone in your lap
And you hoping but them people never call you back
But that’s just how the story unfolds
You get another hand soon after you fold
And when your plans unravel
And they sayin’ what would you wish for
If you had one chance
So airplane airplane sorry I’m late
I’m on my way so don’t close that gate
If I don’t make that then I’ll switch my flight
And I’ll be right back at it by the end of the night

[Hayley Williams]
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now (wish right now, wish right now)
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now (wish right now, wish right now)

Somebody take me back to the days
Before this was a job, before I got paid
Before it ever mattered what I had in my bank
Yeah back when I was tryin’ to get into the subway
And back when I was rappin’ for the hell of it
But now a days we rappin’ to stay relevant
I’m guessin that if we can make some wishes outta airplanes
Then maybe yo maybe I’ll go back to the days
Before the politics that we call the rap game
And back when ain’t nobody listened to my mix tape
And back before I tried to cover up my slang
But this is for the Cada, what’s up Bobby Ray
So can I get a wish to end the politics
And get back to the music that started this sh-t
So here I stand and then again I say
I’m hopin’ we can make some wishes outta airplanes

[Hayley Williams]
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now (wish right now, wish right now)
Can we pretend that airplanes
In the night sky
Are like shooting stars
I could really use a wish right now (wish right now, wish right now)

So. Addictive.

I can't stop myself from singing along to this song every time it gets played over the airwaves! (Just to Hayley's part, that is. I can't rap for nuts. -_-') And since I'm a big, big, BIG fan of stars, too, this song automatically makes it into my "Like" list. Like, in a major way. Haha. Anyway, I hope you like it, too. =) Ok, gotta run. Imma go wish on airplanes now. =p

DGMB Strikes Back... In A Good Way. =)

It all started with this:

Click here to jump to joshuaongys' blog.

And then one by one...

Click here to jump to JenkinYat's blog.

Click here to jump to David's blog.

Click here to jump to Kel Li's blog.

Click here to jump to Nigel's blog.

Click here to jump to Sheon's blog.

Click here to jump to Stanley's blog.

There were other DGMB-ians – namely CincauHangus and YapThomas – who sent their wishes via email and chat, too, so that was a nice surprise. Even more pleasant a surprise was joshuaongys' heart-warming post that Nigel alerted me to – thanks, Nigel! – that conveyed his congratulations and helped bring back some fond memories of the good times we shared as members of the awemazing (we're awesome and amazing, yo!) DGMB.

That's just a part of it. Click here to read from source.
Oh, and please ignore that crap picture of me in his post.
So fail face, man. We took so many pictures together
and he just HAD to use that one. Wth.

Defintely aww-worthy. =) Anyway,
it's time for some personal messages...


Dear joshuaongys,

Why you go use past tense when talking about DGMB?
Make me sad only. TKT is still active wat.
If anything, this post is pictorial proof of that! =)

Still a proud member of DGMB,
Pam Song


Dear ahli-ahli DGMB,

Firstly... Thanks so much you guys!
(Yes, including you, Yatz. Stop crying. =p)

We've come along way since our humble beginning, haven't we? (Click here for a full list of DGMB-related posts I've written. I think. =p) But guess what? Although quite a lot of time has passed since we last rubbed shoulders, lived it up and physically hung out together, the lot of you still rock my online world like no other. =)

Once a DGMB-ian, always a DGMB-ian!

Pam Song

You Make Me Melt Like Butter In Golden Sunshine

Awww, thank you. Such sweet words. But then, they come my way from a pretty (and) sweet lady so... no surprise there, really. Haha.


Dear Sheng Mae,

I'm sure that that rainbow you're looking for
is just a little bit of sunshine away.

So, heads up and eyes to the sky now! =)

Pam Song


p/s: I'm not sure if her website's hush these days (she recently killed off her dotcom) so... no links here for you. Sorry. Go find her page yourself so her header makes sense to you, too. =p

I'm Laughing At Him Laughing

I've never seen (or heard) Wayne Brady from Whose Line Is It Anyway? at a loss for words when tasked with improvisational singing before. But that all changed when he was asked to sing a song to Jane Tricker. The dude got totally speechless! Haha. I guess a semi-naked chick in da haus does make a BIG difference. =p Enjoy!

It's The Small Things That Count Big Time

My dad once told me that I shouldn't keep looking out for fireworks. And he was right. You see, when you focus your sights on only the grand things in life, you're sure to end up overlooking the smaller things that would probably count just as much, if not more. That's why missing out on all those other seemingly unimportant peripheral things is so bad. Cos it's usually the tiny the things that help make the big picture prettier than it would be without.

Trust me when I say that it's the small things that count.
It's always the small things. Like shower gel. =)

I Found My End Of The Rainbow

...and it sits on my ring finger. =)

You think I'm not making sense at all cos I'm giddy and loved up, right? Well, before you throw me into the loony bin, let me explain it to you. I wanted to manually focus on the ring but before I actually did any focusing, I accidentally took a shot. And I got this:

That was the first time I personally saw the rainbows in the diamond that them jewellers so often talk about when trying to make a sale! And boy, was it pretty! So I tried taking more shots of the ring and its rainbow-filled diamond. 5 minutes later, this is what I got:

This was my ultimate favourite of the lot:

Who says you need the rain to catch a rainbow?

All you really need is a diamond
and some good ol' fashioned afternoon sun. =)

Green Means Go

I'm one of those drivers who's always chasing the green light. I don't like stopping. My brain tells me that an idle car is a waste of time and a waste of petrol that's burning but getting me nowhere.

Having said that, I've been sitting on Amber for awhile. (Without your knowledge, of course. =p) You see, something amazing happened when I arrived in Australia. But I was told to keep it out of the news. (Read: The Net.) (I.e. My blog.) At least for awhile. Specifically till July 9.

Problem was, Tinki Talks works like a journal to me. So, keeping something so big and so life changing from its pages was difficult. It's also the place I consider my personal sounding block - where I do my thinking, my mulling and my pondering. And not getting to do all that where I was comfortable doing it was just... blah.

But somehow, I resigned myself to the fact
and dealt with it - the uncomfortable silence.

And then before I knew it,
July 9 came and went.

But I guess that all that time spent sitting in free gear kinda got me feeling comfortable idling behind the white line, too. So I never got around to letting the cat out of the bag.

Plus, I still didn't know for sure if I could actually start putting my thinking back online. No red light didn't necessarily mean a green light, right? So, just to be safe, I didn't write anything about everything my mind was consumed with.

Well, to my surprise, things kinda took a huge turn for me last night. Not only was I reminded of the green light (July 9), I was even told to speed past it and not look back even if the cops come chasing. "Cos it's a happy thing." =)

So that's what I'm doing now.

Sharing the "happy thing" so I can start thinking online again about all those things that consume my thoughts. Like dresses. Flowers. And colour palettes. Cos the offline thing really wasn't working out for me. Haha. (You should see the folder that's currently sitting on my desktop. It's in horrible, horrible disarray. -_-')

Anyway, enough talking. I'm gonna
just share the good news now. And since
pictures always convey happy things best...


Haha. Okay... I know, I know. It doesn't look very glamorous in that picture. But... I did take some nicer shots after to make up for it. =)

Better, right?

But I still think I like the ones I took
the day after that day best.

The end. For now. Haha.

Since you guys are now in on the news, you are so gonna be bombarded with colour boards, dress shoes, hair accessories and every other random wedding idea under the sun that catches my eye. Be afraid. Be very afraid. Mwahahahaha. =)

6 Gigabytes

Okay, remember how I told you my Internet connectivity here is limited to 6gigs worth of uploads and downloads per month? Well... I kinda busted that 'budget' this month – shit – and very badly, too – double shits – so you should begin to expect little or no posts from me from today, right on till Friday. (I've been told that that's when the online curfew ends cos that's when next month's quota begins. Yay! =p) So, yeah. It's silence unless I decide to squint lots and ruin my eyesight by blogging by iPhone for the next few days like I'm doing now. -_-''' If I decide not to or can't, worry not dear readers! Our time apart will be short-lived! We shall meet again soon for connectivity via the MBP resumes over the weekend. =)

Farewell, The E0506 Way

I know this post is like, waaay overdue cos I like, said farewell like, a gazillion lifetimes ago. Haha. But hey, better late than never, right? =)

I decided that I had to write this post (instead of putting it off like I do many other things I want to write about -_-) cos... well, although the people you'll see in this post were in my life a very short time – barely half a year – I believe we shared some very good times together, too. =)

Here... Meet kaki E0506.

Front (L-R): The XX of The Couple, Yours Truly, Aronil,
Indian's Missus;
Back (L-R): Ah Pek, The Owner,
The XY of The Couple, Mr G, Indian.

Indian's head is in front of 'India'. Haha.

Anyway, back to my farewell story.

The gang so very sweetly organised a farewell dinner for me at Fong Lye Taiwan Restaurant, The Gardens on Monday, 24 May 2010 – my last night in KL. Oh, it was also on that night that all of us heard The Couple's proposal story (a year-long proposal – dun mess) and saw THE RING for the first time. =p

The couple showing off their bling with big smiles. =)

That's the XY of The Couple telling his proposal story
while his fiancé looks on and hears it for the first time, too! =p

He gets a pat on the back from Indian for his story. Haha. Actually, I'd give him one for effort, too! Thumbs up for this dude in that department. (And I'm the girl who doesn't give many guys thumb-ups after I hear of their proposal efforts. =p)

It wasn't romantic per say. It was just that... the road wasn't easy. There were many, many, m-a-n-y hiccups along the way. (Like you wouldn't believe. Haha. That's why the whole proposal took a year. =p) The best part was knowing that he did it all on his own without the help (or knowledge) of his boys. So...

A pat on the back and two thumbs up
to you, the XY of The Couple! =D

The Couple and The Owner.

Oh yes... The Owner's his best man for the future wedding, by the way. But from the look on the XY of The Couple's face in that last picture, I'd say the poor dude got conned into agreeing to it. =p

Ok ok enough about them.
Back to me, me, me!

(Narcissistic giler. Haha.)

The food at Fong Lye's good. But I always eat the same thing. (So, sue me.) Some miso fish something something set. It's nais! Go try! You can see it at the bottom of this picture in front of my rice. =)

Yes, like I said, we ordered a lot of food.
Haha. Even the famous potato balls.

Very yummy. I probably stuffed my face with half the plate while the others were talked. (It was sitting right in front of me. Harhar.)

Seated on my left.

Seated on my right. (Yeah, I know you saw
this picture already but I dun have any others of them. =p)

I wish I could tell you what we talked about and how much we laughed but... I can't remember liao! T_T All I know was that we were so freaking loud and noisy, I'm surprised we didn't get asked to leave. Haha. (I blame The Owner. He's always the noisiest. *grin*) And not only were we noisy, we also stayed till they started cleaning up and turning off the lights! (Maybe they had to cos everybody ciao cos of all the noise we were making. =p)

Indian suggested we adjourn to another place but... I still had lots of packing left to do so it was time to say goodbye when we got the shoo from Fong Lye. T_T That made it time for GROUP PHOTOS!

That was the first pic we took right outside Fong Lye. (Again, you saw this one earlier.) Very serious. Too serious, in fact. So we decided to pretend-act-cute and take another with us pulling faces.

I think the waiter who took our picture
got such a big shock that he ended up
taking the picture senget. Haha.

So, we finished off DIY camwhore style.

Photographer – Indian – was looking at himself
in the screen instead into the lens. FAIL!

The XY of The Couple sesat. FAIL!

Ahh, finally a good one. I love this pic of us!


Dear friends of E0506,

I'm glad we crossed paths.
You injected lots of laughter into
my last 6 months in KL and gave me
lots of good times to remember.

Thank you. =)
