Let’s do a brief recap.
I went out for a movie date. It has been
We watched Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The movie was so chocolatey that one can get fat just watching it. There were chocolate in almost every scene!
But still it was good. It appealed to the child in me. Bright colours, marvelous inventions – chocolate television, “whipped” cream, cute squirrels, come-uppance to those spoilt brats, a heart-warming and happy ending.
Johnny Depp was brilliant as usual, though a bit freaky. Fair, almost-white skin, somewhat squeaky voice, funny hairdo, frequent flashbacks to a candy-free and sad childhood – absolutely different to how the character of Willy Wonka was portrayed in the book.
After the movie, we went to Citrus Park for tong sui (dessert). We even ordered the same thing – mung beans.
It was a good first date and I had an enjoyable time. He was funny, knowledgeable and ambitious.
Let’s just see how this goes.
Helped with the cleaning of the new house. My family would be moving soon to a new abode in the middle of the month, so I am now busy with packing.
In the evening, it was my company’s annual dinner at the KLCC Convention Center. The food was slightly better than last year’s. We had performances by Joanne Yeoh, the violinist, who played various songs, ranging from the overture to Phantom of the Opera and ABBA’s Dancing Queen to one famous Chinese oldie (which I don’t know the name to).
Oh, the other guest performer was Anuar Zain, touted as Malaysia’s top male entertainer.
Well, I couldn’t really tell, as he was mobbed by adoring male and female fans as he performed on and off stage. A little busy fending them off whilst singing.
Though he is quite "yummy" in a sense. He now sports a shorter hairdo.
Rumour has it that he is gay. Sigh, the malicious (or not) things people say about those who are famous.
I didn’t have the luck to win anything for the lucky draw though. Oh well.
Anyway, I managed to capture a picture of KLCC when I left at midnight. It is a tad blurry, as I didn't have a tripod with me.
