And people look so different from what they sound. I am told that I should be bigger sized and more imposing - not the puny skinny thing that looks about to fly off when the wind blows. I had thought TALOS was a tall, dark and handsome fellow (because he was so brave a warrior on our forum) but well, he turned out a tad shorter but reasonably handsome, and yes... quite dark. Then I discovered that Bren Bren was a guy! I always thought it was short for Brenda. I have a friend called Brenda and I always call her Bren Bren. And I got to talk to KW something something about vermicomposting. Then, I had somehow got the idea that Petunias was a rotund somebody but she's this pretty thing... and while I had thought somehow that CrazyJellie was a small, dark and serious... she turned up with a smile that would light up the dark.
It was also nice to see faces I knew... Maggie (the Queen of nursery hopping + best hawker centre food), Sky, Faeryberry, Cubie, Rocky, Alan, Bluefly, Abby, Felicia, Looxie... and even Wilson, who must've felt guilty about not wanting to come by, so he came by anyway... haha!
There was lotsa laughter and chatter going on. People saying hello. Waving. Smiling. And boy, you shoulda seen the food! Two long tables groaning under the weight of the food, from panna cottas to meringues to curry to dong po pork with mantou, and even chwee kueh that came warm with its topping. Then there was chocolate pudding and an apple pie...... Hmmmmmm... I stuffed myself already but feel hungry just thinking about the two long tables.
Oh yes! I really must mention the special soft-centered Japanese eggs that Hanaabi and Apperceive brought. I had two of 'em!
Pity I had to leave early to put Little Boy to bed!!
