Those friends thou hast, and their adoption tried,
Grapple them to thy soul with hoops of steel;
But do not dull thy palm with entertainment
Of each new-hatch’d, unfledg’d comrade.
- William Shakespeare (Hamlet) -
I grew up with the following girls whom I had the pleasure to know for 18 years. We don’t get to meet as often as we want to (all of us are juggling families and busy schedules) but we try.
And when we do, we have a riot playing catch up.
Gone are the wild party days (in comes the baby poo and diapers). Gone are the naughty flirts (we dont feel sexy anymore). Gone are the incy bitsy skanky outfits (cos we are all out of shape now).
We are Mothers (Fazliana, Ilah and Tanty), Gonna-Be-Mothers (Mona and Yuana) and Mothers-to-Cats (Shana and yours truly here)..
Meet my BFFs (1993-date)…
Mona, Ilah, Fazliana, Yuana, Me (from l-r) Shana had work and she joined us only much later..
Listening intently to Fazliana.. And her stories.. She always has lotsa stories! And she’s the most animated amongst us!
See what I mean! *lol*
I love Starbucks. We love Starbucks. Fazi, Shana and I were once Starbucks baristas in the 90s. Thanks to Starbucks, we are proficient in making that perfect cuppa.
My usual fare at Starbucks: The divine Jave Chip Hazelnut Frappaccino sans whip cream AND a cinnamon raisin bagel. I wouldn’t share my bagel with anyone.
Because I refused to share, the girls shared this molten choco cake (which I found too rich. Am not a big fan of choco cake)..
… and a cinnamon raisin swirl (but nothing can beat my bagel!)
We then had more food at Pastamania.. (I only manage to take a shot of MY dish cos they practically gobbled up theirs before I could say ‘wait!’. Hence our expanding waistlines.)
Mona then had to leave to attend to her husband before he left for his gig at Timbre (yes, Mona’s husband is also a Goodfella)…
Shana took her place..
Ilah and I have known each other since we were 5! That’s 26 years of friendship!
I love my friends. Forever. And ever. And ever.
And ever! (we each had Cotton On bags on us as we did a ‘short’ bout of shopping before heading back to our cars. Heh.)
Lastly, on another occassion, I met up with Tanty (who is actually a year my senior in Cedar). The husband and I used to hang out at her crib in Chai Chee alot.
Until she had Baby Aryan Mykiel and then went back to work soon after.
And we got married in August 2008 and got our own place in April 2009.
Tanty had taken half-day leave to spend time with me when we met up that day.
We were oogling at shoes at Wisma when Ilah surprised us with a hello. She was out shopping with her husband and did what I do best with all my bffs’ husbands, “Hey xxx, can you please make yourself useful and help us snap a photo? Ta, love!” AND shove the camera into their hands.. *lol*
I love every single one of you ladies!
It’s Sunday 1352hours.
I am actually very hungry now. Oh, so very HUNGRY.
But I am too lazy to go out and get some food.
Stop rumbling, stomach! Go burn the fats and feed yourself there.
So to distract myself, I went looking though my photos tryna decide which blog entry should I write next when I came across the NYE album.
My first 2011 meal was at 0415hours at The Coffee Connoisseur (TCC) at the International Building on New Year’s Day.
Frankly they weren’t that fantastic in their coffee but their supper menu had pretty delish meals. The should consider changing their name to The Supper Connoisseur (TSC) instead.
Do feast on the visual delights..
Because we were all starving, we had also ordered mains but my batt died before I could take any photos..
Okaayy.. I’m still hungry.
Guess what came in the mail last week?
Did spot Coco’s pitter-patter feet?
I love ribbons and bows!
I kinda got carried away a little with the “add to shopping bag” button at net-a-porter…
But the highlight of this blog entry is this…
Nope, they are not a pair of heels!
Say hello to my 3rd Choos!
The Unicorn Leather Sandals in Gold from their Cruise 2011 Collection!
They come in patent black too but I reckon the gold looks better..
Yikes! Yes, I know I am fast having expensive taste for shoes too (despite me swearing once before that they are not worth buying).. Oh my, so help me God!
Dear cs, this is how they look like on my feet.
They fit true to size, as you can see from the photo Hope this photo helps! Good luck!
