Said the apek jual pokok bunga outside Sing Kwong Supermarket just now... because the slip-on shoes that I was wearing conveniently rosak there and then, and I was trying to drag them back to the car. It was quite hilarious actually. People noticed it anyway, no thanks to the "clack clack" sound the shoes were making as I walked, so.. what the heck. I shrugged, took them off and walked barefoot towards the car, to be exact, my dad's BMW that I was driving. Truthfully, it wasnt that embarrassing. I mean, no one that I knew was around, and Dental Floss wasnt there. It could be worse. Like, for example, it would have been worse if the shoes tertanggal during mass in church just now. Now that would have been embarrassing. Imagine walking towards the altar for Holy Communion without shoes on, with all the aunties and uncles and friends who've known you all your life gawking at you.. uh.. ah.. feet.

Speaking of Dental Floss, I was in Medan Jaya yesterday, when I saw someone who looked like him. I did a double take, and then realised that.. nah.. cant be, cause Dental Floss is in KL right now. ^-^ As for me, I've been back home for almost a week now, and I have officially become Mr Gavin Man's private chauffeur and cook. Sheesh. U know what's worse than a 15 year old younger brother? A bossy 15 year old younger brother. His requests are never ending, he drives me nuts sometimes. "Drive me here", "drive me there". "I wanna eat this", "I wanna eat that". Lucky lad. Manipulative, lays the guilt trap on me if I dont do what he says. Sheesh. (Di, what have u got me into? "Sheesh" is one of the most over-used words in my vocabulary now!)
Anyway, it's nice being home in Bintulu again, and it's been a nice week, I guess, in case you're wondering and dying to know what I've been up to. I've been watching a lot of House, Desperate Housewives and CSI, thanks to Thai Yiung. And I still have 2 seasons of Grey's Anatomy to go. =) I've been trying to continue my domestic-goddess-wannabe thingy from where I left off in KL (Di and I have been into cooking wholesome meals the last few weeks of Sem 3), cooking stuff for my bro, and trust me, he is quite the critical food critic. Next on my list will be making apple crumble and honeycomb cheesecake, hopefully it'll turn out ok. And, in case you didnt know, you goose you (the CSS goose that haven been to my place for a long while), Tribal House now has an additional cool stuff to entertain ourselves with; I bought an oven! *Grinning from ear to ear* We really should have a cook-out sometimes.
Oh, and I havent been blogging because I was busy preparing for my EOS exams, which hopefully, hopefully will turn out ok. Results will be out next week. I'm keeping my fingers crossed, and I wouldnt mind some prayers people. Oh.. and belated thanks to the angels God sent my way during my exam week.
And also for the well-wishers: Adrian, Michiebun, Yoke Yin, Jo, Diana, Kat etc.
And finally, special thanks to the people who fed me stuff the few days leading towards the exam; Ben, Jeremy and Paul, for the cincau, the yummy Alison's bread, the apple crumble cheesecake, the kuay teow, the fishballs etc. Oh.. and thanks for the constant nagging too. Sucks, but much needed. Thank you (NOT!) for going out shopping and having midnight swims without me. Like, so not a party without ME! Bet you guys missed me cos I wasnt there. Haha.
Love to talk more now that the words are flowing, but gotta go cos Mr High and Mighty's gotta do his Form 3 History project. Heheh. I shall be off, gloating about the fact that I get "Daphne, you're back. You look so pretty" all the time from the aunties in church. Or the fact that the younger girls will be like rushing towards me, with a I've-missed-you hug, and touching my hair all. I.. Am.. So.. Popular.. *E-o.. e-o.. Narcissism alert* Muahahaha.
