Weekend With Wonder Woman

Friday - Same old same old. Body Pump at MJH/MRB, FPI that day replaced by Myke, as the former had quartelies. Rushed back, to prepare supper for cell group, which initially looked like no one was going to show. Fortunately, the two home made pizzas did not go to waste, and this the son's verdict.


Saturday- Tons of errands to run, in preparation for dinner party tonight with Wonder Woman aka Gorgeous Woman. Started in Petaling Street, to get the Sei Ngan Chai Ham Arp, (4 eyed boy's salty duck), managed to grab a plate of chee cheong fun....Petaling Street is always so hustling and bustling, even at 9.30am. I so love that place. Great food as well. Headed to normal Ipoh Kueh Teow shop, Lee Tong Kee in Jln Silang, but it was closed, so went to Tengkat Tong Shin, which was ALSO closed. Gee such slackers. Ended up having to get it from Lucky Garden, but the lady wasn't accustomed to our usual method of tah pau, so it ended up a trite soggy.

Baked the same Nigella Lawson's Choc Fudge Cake for dessert, in the afternoon, before heading for Body Attack in Axis. It was taught by Jason, who also teaches Body Jam. I enjoyed the class, but didn't seem to sweat as much. Wonder why. Not like I was taking the easier options. The position of FAI (Fave Attack Instructor) is still vacant, for I haven't been very regular, and actually, so far, with the exception of Jeremy, have not had anyone twice. (oh, GW doesn't count....) But Jason was pretty good, there's something very down to earth about his demeanour....that makes him very err......human, and easy to relate to. However, that doesn't necessarily translate to friendliness, as I found out later. Then again, most instructors who are aloof usually attribute it to shyness and reserveness. A bit hard to reconcile, but I guess acceptable.

Second round of errands after attack, collecting the roast meat, etc etc.

DINNER - All the EFFs were there.... FCI, FPI, FSI, GW, and the new additions of Janis and Klevin. Most of the instructors were late, coz they were held up in the Curve, but Mr & Mrs Lion Heart, YHSMOM, and Shades & gf were on time. The menu comprised a Duet of Homemade Pizzas, One with Pesto Base, One with tomato base, with scallops, bacon, basil, mushroom and peppers, Trio of Cheese Platter, and Edamame Beans.

Mains were Silky Rice Noodles in a Chicken Consomme (aka Ipoh Kueh Teow la), Roast Duck, Roast Pork, Salad with quails eggs and pine nuts, in a balsamic dressing, a sour mango kerabu and black hokkien mee, oh, and Kajang Satay from Ampang. (thanks Shades for getting that).

Initially, it looked as if there wasn't going to be a dent in the food. Fortunately, justice was done, and we were not left with leftovers to last 3 months.

Dinner was a hilarious affair. Lion Heart seems to know every instructor, and had a running commentary, while instructors also seem to know certain members. I tell you, they could start a whole new soap opera based on the gym. Anyway, most of the stuff talked about probably cannot be repeated, so I shall not put anyone in a perilous position. Janis, or Big J, was the only instructor who drank with me. FCI is a teetotaller, as seemed everyone else.

Here are some pics of the night:

Members Only



Gorgeous Woman...What was she doing I can't recall now. Shimmy of Sorts.

The Lost Boys

Frankenstein's Monster (not a flattering pic)



Jakarta Jan, Me, GW and FSI

Is she digging her teeth?



And that was Saturday. Made several new acquaintances. That was good. Found out that Lion Heart and Wife also love cooking.

Sunday - church service as usual. No coffee shop lunch, as had to eat the leftovers. Body Step in the afternoon, with Eugene. Class seems to getting more crowded. In the evening, brought the kids to lake club for swim....

fatboybakes said...

really? i thought that was not a very flattering pic of the fler. anyway, as yhsmom pointed out before, he WAS in female magazines top 50 whatever whatever last year. so when you joining body step?

Pick Yin said...

oh i do join FSI's body step, but not in manulife. :D

DR-Combat said...

fatboybakes: diverted from Shades blog. all those food you mentioned sounds too mouth watering right now. check out my comment on one "optical-illusionized" picture he had. :O haha anyway, cheers!

fatboybakes said...

dr-combat, yar, i didnt understand your optical illusion picture comment...what couple? where? anyway, some of the people present at that dinner reckoned that if you guys lived in the era of FEARLESS, you, DR COMBAT, would have been no 1 in tianjin.

fatboybakes said...

to pick yin: then what did you mean, "OH thats your FSI, not bad not bad???"...since u know him anyway. i thought you never seen who he is before.

DR-Combat said...

fatboybakes (FBB): oh wasn't clear earlier. What I meant was when I saw that picture in Shades's blog, initially i thought who was that couple, sitting at the doorstep overlooking a beautiful pool. It wasn't until I read his captions, when it's your FCI, and your daughter? :D

Btw, what u mean era of Fearless, no.1 in tianjin? so i look good with half of my head bald, long hair sticking out from my head? hehe - good idea for a theme combat class.

fatboybakes said...

dr combat, i only just found out your secret identity this morning (before you commented on any of the blogs)...so coincidental you should have dropped into the blog...
so yar, you'd look damn good with the manchurian pigtails, and your terror technique...only been to your class once, loved it, but no opp to go again. sigh.

DR-Combat said...

Sssshh...u spoil my surprise for the upcoming new launches! haha now i have to cross out those manchurian pigtails idea. Oh well, hope to see you one day, then. You have a good one. Keep blogging - great site.

Kia Kaha.

yhsmom said...

Wah! Talk about fate or what? Just after posting about Dr-Combat in my comments about the previous entry, the man himself actually drops in! What an honour, FB!

yhsmom said...

Oh yeah unfortunately FB's FSI is not very photogenic. One has to see him in the flesh to appreciate how gorgeous he really is!

fatboybakes said...

yhsmom: yar, such an honor for no1 in tianjin to drop by hor. and so bizarre that you were just telling me about him earlier.
as for FSI not being photogenic, well, maybe it is our photography la...afterall, he was in FEMALE top 50 gorgeous ppl right?

Pick Yin said...

FBB: I do know him, but I didn't know he's your FSI. ;)

yhsmom said...

But the picture in Female not nice also leh...

DR-Combat said...

yhsmom & FBB: been coughing and sneezing lately - wonder why?? ;) i do read blogs when I'm a bit free. or when i don't want to do anything else.

FBB: maybe you can try to get the pic of your FSI that was in the FEMALE top 50 and post it there!

fatboybakes said...

dr comb, dont blame us for your coughing and sneezing...heh heh. aiya, hou sum lei la, whatever makes you think that i would possess a copy of that female magazine.. yhsmom was the one who told me about it, and till TODAY, she still hasnt shown me the pic of FSI!!!
by the way, i was rooting for you at the nike tribe competition last year...

DR-Combat said...

FBB: i assumed that Mrs. FBB got mar. now it's crystal clear. my hats's off to you on your baking & cooking skils dude. Maybe u shouldn't call yourself FBB, but God of Bakery / Cookery!
Thanks for ye'support. :) See you around sometime soon.

By the way, hope you recover soon on your elbow.

Cheers. Kia Kaha!

fatboybakes said...

dr combat, yar, i got those old man plasters for my elbow. Hisamitsu. okaylah, next time i will invite you to sample the baking, then u can see that those titles, God of Bakery, don't really apply larrr....still amateur.

yhsmom said...

Aha! Another new addition to FB's FF parties at home! FB, you must really bring out the red carpet when the great day comes!

Oops! I foresee Shades turning another shade of green though...

yhsmom said...

I told you already wat? My spinster sister-in-law stole my copy of the 50 Gorgeous people and is salivating over it at home!
