What does one do in an AWKWARD situation like that? The last time when I saw current prime minister sitting directly behind me in the play Emily of Emeral Hill, (he was DPM then), I wished him Good Evening Yang Berhormat, and got sooo much flack from iconoclast couple, (quodlibet now), for being obsequious, and kiss ass. I don't know about THEIR generation, but my generation, we were taught to wish our elders, and people we respect. So anyway, I greeted the Tun with a "Good evening Tun". He very graciously replied likewise, (of course, he didnt say Tun as well)....
Anyway, I felt like a lazy slob, since I was having my haircut and not doing anything, whereas he was reading. I can't see the palm of my hand without my glasses, let alone read!!! Usually I fall asleep and probably snore, but this time I made sure I kept awake. Anyway, at the end of it, he even said goodbye before I could. Oh well, that was my brief encounter with the good Tun.
Of course, the minute I got out of the barber shop, it was sms-es to all and sundry....amongst the interesting replies I got were:
The above sms was from shades.
Autograph? In a barber shop? You gotta be kidding.
Further to Shades' sms yesterday,
perspiring fitness instructor says: got bodyguard ah
CORNELIUS says: not in the shop
CORNELIUS says: they were outside
perspiring fitness instructor says: still got bodyguard.. what use of them to be outside
perspiring fitness instructor says: yeah, u could kill him
CORNELIUS says: as u said, i doubt anyone would bother
perspiring fitness instructor says:maybe your for today's entry "I COULD'VE KILLED HIM"
CORNELIUS says:SEONG SEI AH
perspiring fitness instructor says: then y have bodyguard
perspiring fitness instructor says: COULD'VE does not imply u WOULD
perspiring fitness instructor says: like I could go for a sex change op doesn't imply i WOULD
Honestly, what goes thru this fler's head!!!
Apart from meeting the Tun, yesterday, I also got a call from Astro saying I had won two tickets to La Boheme in Istana Budaya. Cheh, why couldn't it have been tickets for Grease, or Il Divo in Sydney!!!
Met up with long lost friend, Ipoh Banker, and had a complimentary tea at Le Meridien courtesy of one of the membership consultants. If you are into those hotel privilege cards thingies, you might want to consider Le Meridien. RM438, which even gives 2 nights complimentary stay.
Combat with FCI. They still cant teach the new tracks, although it's been launched in MRB oridi. Anyway, the class was packed like sardines. When he announced that he won't be teaching there anymore, and the original instructor will be back, there was an audible groan from some of his lady fans.
Attended a restaurant opening, Mexican, called Sandias, next to Domino's in Plaza Damansara. The finger food was excellent....don't know how to describe them, as I dont have the correct terminology.
Since the finger food was ....finger food, still pregnant wife had craving for hokkien mee, so we headed to YI Garden in BSC, which has good but exorbitantly priced hokkien mee.... I guess we are paying the rental as well....and we bumped into yhsmom's FFM. (favourite fellow member), ie, The Lionheart. Which makes it like the 5th time we've bumped into them in BSC in a period of 2 weeks.
After too much carbo, decided to stretch the legs by walking around cold storage when I spotted THIS. I'd only ever heard this word on ALL ABOARD blog, so was pretty fascinated, and as fate would have it, ever since the cameraless Tun encounter, I now carry camera wherever I go. I'm not sure what it is.... a dip, a sauce, ...oh, silly me, it says there pasta sauce.
