New Year's Eve

In Short: New year's eve was GREAT! The Curve is a MUCH better place to go compared to Bukit Bintang. There was not as many people, more families, more room to breathe and less of those irritating foam sprays. Less hooligans too. People are more civilised at The Curve... and better dressed too! Haha

But getting out of the parking lot was seriously HELL. We got to the car at 12.45 (apparently hoping that the jam has recided) but nope, the blue Kelisa and the orange Gen2 in front us us did not move for 30minutes! We went to 7 Eleven, bought chocolate and drinks and the two cars were still in front of us! The car beside us JUST got out of the parking spot. Wahaha.

Went to eat a sandwich after that... by then (2am) at least cars were moving. It's E and my 3rd new year as a couple! =)

E and i =)


Will add another pic or 2 later...


In detail: (Warning: that means LONG!)


Thanks to Mr. Not Malaysian Cuz He's Always Early and Doesn't Like Nasi Lemak, i was at the Curve before 6pm. 6hours to count down, i noted out loud and that's when i realize 2006 is coming to an end. I wonder how the last new year stays so fresh in my mind, my brain must be a high tech freezer.

None of our friends were there yet so we went to eat at Fasta Pasta, again i know. Shared their Australian size lasagne, chit chat and just enjoyed each other's company. =) Fitness First members get 10% off.

My last day as a Fitness First member =( But the last time i entered the gym was Saturday, and my beloved Bodypump class was cancelled cuz the instructor, my dear friend, was holidaying down south for the long weekend. Really sad about it, even had nightmares. And i swear my little bump (muscle) in my arms are disappearing already =(

Meals for E and i for new year's eve was on Borneo Ink! So nice of E's big big boss to give him RM50 cash along with "belanja u dinner". That's the way employers should be!

RM50 was about enough cuz my colleague and Ausmat mate, D, her boyfriend S, their friend J and D's lil sis and boyfriend couldn't decide on what to eat, we ended up at a mamak near Tesco. Sucky maggie goreng but great sambal... didnt finish the noodles cuz the lasagne was still in tummy but i finished the sambal, every last bit.

I love spicy Malaysian food so much, i feel like getting a little red chilli paddy tattoo to symbolize that love... just a thought. =P

I thought of getting a fisheeeee to symbolize my love for water after Redang but i still haven't done it. =P

After that we just chit chat at the mamak for some time and then E and i spilt from the rest. Hung out with E's best bud Si and His Princess at ajuice bar for a bit and then headed to Ikea. There, whenever E bullies Si's Princess, she'd whack Si. She really playfully hits him a lot. Really a lot and he never hits her back. He just makes this really cute and pitiful face...

And i was like, how could u do this to your friend la, E? Hahaha. I hardly whack E cuz he wouldn't just act pitiful, he'd whack me back wann. He very bad wannn.

I wanted this heart soft toy from Ikea and he didnt wanna get it for me citing the long queues at the cashier as his excuse. But then there was no queue at the cashier. And Ikea's smart enough to have a few of them near the cashier! Hahahaha. So E agreed to buy me one! =)

E, your bitch says thank you asshole! =)

Asked the cashier for an extra plastic bag to ensure that my heart's safe from the foam spray cuz i had to carry it through the countdown. But i soon found out that those irritating foam sprays aren't widely used at the Curve.

Another good thing about the Curve/Ikano/Cineleisure is that the phone lines arent as jammed as in Bukit Bintang. Even at 11.30, some phone calls could go through, we managed to meet up with D and gang.

It wasn't really a long wait after that...

Near 12 o clock, some crazy person smacked my arm really hard!!!! E moved away and i wondered why Si or his Princess would have done that to me... I saw their blank blur faces and then i saw my one and only study partner! She's the monkey who hit me!!!

She's back from S'pore and we happened to choose the same venue for countdown! She was with her darling, who lost a lot of weight and her friend, also called Sue Lin, not sure about her spelling though, the introduction was cool, "Hie i'm Sue Lin", handshake, "Same here, i'm Sue Lin too!"


Meeting Other Sue Lins

The last time i met another Sue Lin was "Whats your name?" "Sue Lin" i said. She stared at me wide eyed, "Thats my chinese name!"

The the best one was when E was sitting in between two Sue Lins. Names are spelt exactly the same. She didnt know my name... and E wanted to take out something from his wallet. And she caught a glimpse of this cross stitch i did for him.

Its a red heart with his name my name on it, would love to upload the pic but its on my dead desktop. So she caught sight of it and was kinda shocked la. I mean, how would it look like to her? Her name and this guy's name with a heart... is she sitting next to a psycho? Hahahah.

"Why's my name there?" she asked and he said, it's HERRRR name, pointing to me. =P

Soon after that we were counting down and we watched the fireworks. Simple, nothing spectacular, wonder how much the fireworks costs. Si and His Princess left to get chicken wings while the rest of us wanted to head for Sri Hartamas.

But due to the massive jam, we dropped the idea. When E and i finally got out of the parking lot, he said "Ohhh accident!", looking to the right.

Thank god i didn't turn to look and i didn't stupidly say "Where?". I saw the red car in front of us stop and i noticed E was accelerating! I screamed "CAREFUL!!!!" and he stopped just in time!!!! Phewwww....

That wouldn't be a good way to start the new year.


Reflections

I've changed a lot since i was 17. I'm more sociable than i was long ago. I can feel it. I am less self-conscious... I really don't know how to elaborate so lets skip this part


Resolutions

To stop being long-winded is NOT one of my resolutions. I'm going to type one long story here. =P

I only have two resolutions. One is to continue working out on my own.

Two is to be more thick skin. It really pays to be thick thinned. Give u a simple story from my experience: There was a sucky punchcer at my desk at work. It was hard for me to make holes in papers for filing. And since i already had a puncher they didnt want to get me a new one.

The next day... i decided i really needed a new puncher. I went to the stationary guy for our floor and told him mine's not working well. And he just gave me a new one! Hahaha. Makes life so much easier since i'm the little office girl who does a lot of filing.

May add to my resolution list later on... but wont be posting it.


Happy New Year! And welcome 2007!
