Day 1 & 2 Langkawi

the album on Langkawi popped up in facebook under 'On This Day 8 years ago' this morning... browsing through the pics brought back much much sweet memories and since it's the hols and i'm super reluctant to do any school work, i decided to do a blog post on it for easy 'retrievation' for times when i want to recall how once upon a time, Mr Ang also liked to take pics of me as much as i still like to take of him ....  

nowadays outings are just pics of him and selfies... =S

it was our first oversea trip together so we were super enthu to caption almost every pic together when we returned and sweet comments from him on some of the pics somemore wor... copied the captions over into this blog for entertainment... hahahaha... 

nowadays, i should be happy if i can get a 'like' from him... =P 

oh no.... it started off as a sweet memory ... now turning into a compare & contrast complain .... =P

Chapter 4 - The Day we get together, together, together

His Version:
After having a great first date, i was looking forward to the second date with her and decided to ask her out to chill at holland v. :) my fav place to hang out as there are many nice food around. she readily accepted my date but we went to watch dance performances (Night Festival 2009) near SMU instead.

Even though the raining weather interrupted the dance segments, it couldn't interrupted our conversation and spoil our date. ;) we walked around SMU, enjoying each other company with just plain chit chatting. Isn't that wonderful when you don't need to do anything spectacular to get the attention of the girl. I feel good being just myself where i can talk without any restraint and that she enjoyed it :)

As you can see in "Her" version, the dialogue between us is how i used to ask her be my gf. It is kinda special compared to the usual quote: 'I really enjoy your company, will you be my girlfriend'? So instead of asking in such an old styled method, i being creative, came up with a new way ;) Luckily it works, as i am still holding her small pair of hands and i will continue to hold them till i am an old ah gong ;)



Her Version:

i like his company and i dun see the point of playing hard to get... 喜欢就说喜欢lo... not me to 扭扭捏捏... so i readily accepted his date for the following weekend... but instead of chilling at holland v as what he had planned, i suggested going for some outdoor dance and acrobat performances at the grass patch next to smu...

me on the day we got together


but 天不作美... started raining after the second dance performance and the whole dance showcase was postponed and eventually cancelled as the rain would not stop pouring... and we had to seek shelter in smu... and it was during these 2 hours that we talked and talked and talked alot more.... it's just so entertaining to chat with him cos he is just so comical.... i likey.... *blush blush*.... hahaha....

anyway, the rain finally stopped like 2-3 hours later and the finale acrobat performance carried on as planned... the helpers and performancers took a really long time to get the whole thing started as they had to dry the equipment and i got a little restless just standing there and waiting and waiting somemore...

the acrobat performance was awesome...
acrobats spinning round & round & round with fire, sparks and fireworks.... =)


During the performance...
KM: are u feeling tired?
Me: a little….
KM: you can lean on me if u r tired…
Me (to myself): lean on u??? just like that??? Huh??? So weird!!! Dun want la…
Me: hmm…oki la….

and I continue to stand by myself… with him standing behind me…


KM: you can lean on me if u r tired u know???

Me (to myself): aiyo, he very persistence leh…. If dun lean, will he ask until I lean???

And he went on to promote that his chest is very nice to lean on de…. Oh my 天… so I took a small step back and lean on him…. Heee… quite comfy to lean on oh…. Hahaha….


And soon after, he wrapped his arms around my waist and guess what he said….. can faint lo…


KM: woah, got arm rest leh…

Me (to myself): huh? (blur for a moment then)
Oh no!!! he’s referring to me little flabby tummy...
So embarrassing….
KM: hahaha… but I like…. Just nice to rest my arms…

Me speechless…


And he held my hands all the way home… and till today….and hopefully still hold them when we becoming old 爷爷 Ang and old 奶奶 Ang… =)

Chapter 3 - Our first date

His Version :

was returning home from my night duty in camp in the morning.. really looking forward to meeting her after our chats in msn, phone calls and smses. finally, we are meeting. :) we arranged to meet at somerset station at 1pm.



as usual, i wore polo t-shirt and jeans, wondering what she will wear and i wonder how i can engage her in conversations later so that she will feel comfortable :)

As I was the one who booked the tickets, i went down to cineleisure 45mins earlier to collect the tickets so that we won't need to queue up later on. After collecting the tickets, i still have 30mins to spare before our meeting time. I was lazy to walk around so decided to wait for her at somerset station and listened to my mp3. While waiting, i was thinking of what i can do to liven up the atmosphere later on so that she won't feel shy and there won't be any awkward silence.


Surprisingly, at 1pm sharp, she arrived and i could recognise her easily.. wow, she look gorgeous with her simple wear and i am impressed with girls who look great without much make-up and dressed simply.. :) (she is just that beautiful). Told her that I had already collected the tickets and as the movie is at 2.30pm, we went for drinks at coffeebean @ Paragon (my Fav place). :)


Although we are meeting for the first time, we seemed to be able to talk to each other.. Her initiate fear of being too quiet and shy is not present. We could talk and talk and talk, which is great for the first date so that she won't feel awkward.. i tried my best to entertain her with my jokes and luckily we are watching a cartoon show so that liven up the atmosphere. :)

I tried to tell her as much things as possible about me so that she could know me better rather than just the guy she know in Double O. she also told me more of herself and i could feel that she is feeling pretty at ease talking to me and there don't seem to be any gaps or awkwardness.


oh ya, one more thing that realli catches my attention, is her smile. Her smile really melted my heart.. ooops.. Whenever she laughed at my jokes, smiled at me, i will be dazzled and feel good. :)

As i still remembered that she told me she like to eat the flaming prawns in Manhattan, I brought her to manhattan for dinner. Hoped she will enjoyed the date with me :) with a total of 9hrs spent together, I enjoyed the chats with her face to face, was dazzled by her smile, and I love the cheerfulness of her :) glad tat we could just chat and chat non-stop; :)



Her Version :
cracked my brain a few times just on deciding what to wear on our first date.... can't wear too maturely (looks wierd if he turns up in berms right???) yet also can't wear too kiddishly (dun wanna him to think that i purposely act cute for my age lo)...and also not too sexily (dun wanna him to think of me as a typical clubbing girl who is very 'fun'... i need him to know that i m actually a very very boring person)... =( ...

in the end, i wore my 3/4 sleeves top with army greenish shorts for a casual look and pair it with heels for a more 'mature' look...no sling bag (too kiddish) and no handbag (too mature) ... so took my tiny wristlet out instead.... so 麻烦... especially when i need to bring my hp and my compact powder out ... =(... and this is how i look like in 'weemee' style.... heee....
was kind of nervous, worried, excited... am finally meeting the guy whom i have been chatting with for the last month or so... really feel great chatting with him on msn, sms and phone but to meet him face to face is another issue leh.... butterflies in my stomach.... 'what if this and what if that'.... argh....stress!!! but also wanna settle it once and for all... if really shouldn't be then should just end it instead of wasting both of our time, energy and feelings thinking that each other is possible when it may not be possible.... =(


anyway, met him at somerset mrt... was wondering if he could recognise me as i would look very different from the first time we met at double O.... i will feel very paiseh if i walk past him and he dun recognise me lo.... but luckily, he did... phew!!!.... he told him that he had already collected the tickets and since we have 1 hour to spare before the show starts, he treated me coffee at coffee bean at paragon.... he talked and talked and talked..... initially, i was a little shy and didnt really know how to response but as he was so comical and friendly, i warmed up to him pretty fast.... then we went to cineleisure to catch .... ICE AGE 3....

was worried and wondering if he would make use of the dark setting to do anything advancing.... hahaha.... as in try to hold my hand .... u know, u know.... guys always do that.... but he din... glad (cos i wun know how to reject and i really hope we have a chance to talk abt our differences first) yet a little disappointed (maybe he's not interested any more).... but the movie was a great laugh.... 2 thumbs up....then he brought me to manhantan fish market at clarke quay....


yummilious... my favourite flaming prawns.... we chatted for so long at the entrance staircase of centro...and walked over to the bench outside timber @ acm to continue our chats....
was really fun listening to him as he tells me everything about him in details... hahaha... i think he also really wanna me to know him as well.... in return, i told him alot about myself too.... how passive and nua and lazy and boring and simple and plain i m... i wanted him to know the real me... i really dun wanna go through the 因不了解而在一起,因了解而分手 kind of crap...

it was a very pleasant outing and i really enjoyed the time we spent together...a total of 9+ hours... he sent me to woodlands bus interchange where we continued another hour of clarification... hahaha... i was convinced to give this unique relationship a try... i feel really good with him ... =)


updates from 18 june 2010:

i m really glad i gave this relationship a try despite the doubts and objections i received from some of my friends... i have never been so happy in a relationship and it's the simple things that he does that is making everything work for us.... even if this relationship does not last, there would be no regrets as i really enjoyed the time together... =)

Chapter 2 - between the day we met & the day we first dated

His Version :
i went badminton coaching the next morning and i was thinking of her throughout the session. the time spent with her felt so great and i thought it was so sweet although the time spent together was rather short. i was thinking of a way to ask her out so tat she can get to know me better. sms and called the number she gave me but received no reply from her. Could the number be a fake number? but i still harboured hopes of knowing her more than just that 'special night'.

after finding my ways and means, i managed to find her on facebook. Was pretty excited when i found her cos it wasn't easy as she had purposely given me a 'wrong' surname and i have to dig deep before i found her.

Initially, i know her as Candy Cai so went to search in facebook for this name. there were numerous pages of Candy Cai but no sign of her. although feeling disappointed when i couldn't find her in FB at first, i persisted and try hard to think of other ways. suddenly, i remembered that she told me she is teaching in a primary school in yishun, so i went to google all the primary schools in that area and search through its staff list. Finally, i managed to find her. woohoo. :) den realised her actual name is Candy Chua. Eventually found her in FB. :)

We started msging each other over FB for a couple of days and soon we proceeded to smsing and chatting on msn. Although we didnt really know each other very well, we seemed to click pretty well. We have endless stuff to chat over the msn and I will sms her every morning with my morning greetings. :) Soon we started chatting on the phone and it was nice chatting with her as she will always laugh at my jokes. :) (although it is stupid at times) haha...
After chatting for a few times, I know that she could be a special girl in my life. I feel veri comfortble talking to her and everything seems so nice :). Thus I was even more determined to date her out and to get to know her better :)

Initially, she doesn't want to meet me as she feared of meeting strangers and she keep insisting tat she will bored me out as she wont talk much in person. I told her I will entertain her if i date her out and we eventually arranged to meet on youth's day, and I sure i could convince that I am not the kind of people who are looking for a fun relationship only. I am serious in wanting to know her better :)

Deep inside me, I was hoping that everything will turn out fine on the first date as i know i was already attracted to her over the phone calls and chats in the msn. :)


Her Version:
aiyo.... what was i thinking??? how can i let a stranger kiss me??? but the whole experience was so sweet leh...oopx!!!... i just feel so good with him around... better pray he dun call or sms.... but he did...not once or twice but many many times..... all calls and sms were ignored though... was thinking that he would definitely give up after one or two days of not being able to contact me bah...or worse, scold me over sms for being stuck up or what... !@#$%
however, i was suprised to see a message from him on facebook 2 days later... he manged to find me although i gave him a wrong surname... i can sense his sincerity (or think skin...hahaha) and i just cant bring myself to ignore him... i struggled for a whole day before replying him that it would be better if we just leave our 'friendship' to just that night... i even told him that i m not comfortable meeting ppl whom i dun really know... i thought this would be sufficient to end everything between us lo... usually guys would just back off knowing that this girl got no interest in meeting up one leh... but not him lo....

he continued to message me through facebook and we will exchange 2-3 messages a day before proceeding to sms and finally to msn.... but i still refused to meet up with him.... i scare one thing lead to another....and the main barrier is .... the huge age gap between the 2 of us lo.... oh my 天... but i wun denied that i was attracted to him, attracted to his cheerfulness, his optimism, his disciplined exercise routine, his radio dj style of entertaining me... and he is definitely not thinking and behaving any more childishly than me despite his age...hahaha..... overall, i felt very comfortable talking to this guy and i was even waiting for his sms and msn after a while.... so decided...have an online relationship bah (that's what i told joyce... hee)... that's how i classify it....i wun meet up with this guy to develop anything further but i will continue to chat with him.... =) ... yeah!!!

somehow or another, he realised that there must be an underlying reason why i refused to meet up with him although i seemed to be enjoying the conversation we had and one night he asked if it was our age difference.... oh no...he found out that i was older....so paiseh.... he say that he roughly guessed it when he browse thru my facebook and found that most of my friends are in the age group that is 6-7 years his senior.... and he say he dun mind.... i was like.... OOOKKKKIIIIEEEE...... the remaining night was spent trying to convince me that our age gap will not create any problem in our 'friendship'...and after a while.... i was kind of convinced.... =P

as the days go by, i continued to reject his date until one day he ask me to choose a date that i will be free... i decided to choose Monday, Youth Day holiday... as i m sure that NS man dun celebrate youth day nor have off on youth day de lo.... but oh my 天, i was wrong lo....it so happened that he had guard duty on sunday and that fateful monday was his off day..... argh!!!!..... like that also can lo..... and i cant go back on my words ...(or i decided not to...heee)....

in my mind, i know that this date is a chance to show him that i m more of a girl next door kind of person and not the typical type of girl that gets picked up at a club... hope that this 'relationship' can end (yet hoping for miracle to happen) before it gets too complicated....

Chapter 1: The Day we Met - 13th June 2009

Chapter 1 - How we MET!!!

Scene 1- Planning to celebrate Jia Jie's birthday thru phone call.

Daniel: Hey tonight go clubbing leh.
Kok Ming: Huh? Next week la, since his birthday is next week. I'm tired from coaching.
Daniel: No, we all going tonight, next week we will not be gg. So you want to come?
Kok Ming: Ok ok.. See you all tonight then. :( {kinda sian cos was feeling very tired from all the coaching}


Scene 2- afternoon thru sms


Chun Yang: Let's go double O tonight...
Candy: Onx you...


Scene 3 - night @ Double O (Muhammah Sultan)

His thoughts & actions:

Kok Ming: The lady behind us look kinda cute and sweet. :)


Jia Jie: Go over and said hi la. :p
Kok Ming: Shy leh. haha..

Finally, after downing one jug of drink, I finally get the courage to walk over and say Hi to her and told her that my friends wanna know her..oops, i'm kinda shy to tell her directly tat i wanna know her directly. :)

After saying Hi, i offered to buy her a drink and hoping to have the opportunity to chat with her. So after getting the drink she wanted (Lychee Martini), we start chatting. [Was feeling happy and kind of glad tat i have mustered enough courage to go over to her :) ] After knowing tat she is a primary teacher [she must be the kind tat like kids alot], another plus point for her.

Surprisingly, we are able to hit it off pretty well as we seem to have various topics to chat about. Luckily I was coaching small kids, can talk cock with her regarding the monsters tat we faced in our occupations. Haha.. After a while, we went back to our own group of friends. [Was feeling kinda excited at tat point after our small chat. :) ]


After being back with friends, I was still feeling kinda excited over the conversation I had with her. Feel that I could somehow clicked with her and enjoyed the simple conversation we had. After awhile, somehow I missed her presence and have the urge to look for her so me being thick-skinned, went up to her and asked her for a dance in the presence of her friends. [ Quite brave right? Even though she had her guy friends around too]

On the dancefloor, we weren't like some other pairs where they seemed to be making out where they are all over each other.. instead, I put my hands on her waist and hers on my shoulders and we just danced along with the music and continue sweet talkings into each other ears. I was so engrossed with her tat I didn't even notice tat her frens were dancing beside us to spot check on us till she told me.. haha.. {was mesmerised by a pretty and sweet girl tat my eyes were just fixed on her :) }

Beside dancing with her, I even played 5-10 with her group of friends, don't know how I mixed inside also. haha.. Liked the feeling of her leaning against me when we were playing, the smell of her hair was realli nice.. oops.. :)


On the other hand, my group of friends were trying to drown the both of us with alcohol. We were constantly handed alcohol drinks. haha. [ the drinks do liven up the atmosphere and it make me less tensed though :) ] And I gave her the so called princess kiss on her forehead { must be the effect of the alcohol and the presence of a pretty girl } and was glad that she seemed to like it. haha.. And I kissed her on the lips twice and the feeling was jus so different. {Dunno if it is the effect of the alcohol, or if it is the effect of Fate}. Not long after tat, she said she had to leave. Was kinda sad tat such a great night have to come to a end. Wanna send her home so tat i can treat her to supper and know her better.{ but she think i have more in my mind so she rejected me. }


So i thought it is the end after she left, but deep inside I was hoping I have the opportunity to know her outside the club.. I really enjoyed the conversation, the dance, her company, I jus felt so great with her company.

All i could do after the clubbing session was just hope.

Her thoughts & actions:
hmmm, that guy in white on the right looks kinda cute with his smile... but looks kinda of young leh... =P ... out.... next eye candy.... hahaha...

Anyway, he came over to say hi and used the excuse that his friends wanna know me. {kind of old school hor??? hahaha} So being nice and polite, i said okie and went up to say hi to his friends {i must be high on alcohol that night to have the courage to do that lo}

he offered to buy me a drink and i requested for a lychee martini and i had to repeat it 3 times before he could finally get it right {i was thinking...what's wrong with this guy??? oopxy} he left and returned in a while to ask, u want a glass or a jar ah?? {hahaha.... he so cute and duh lo.... of cos glass la.... i then wun 'tok' a poor young boy lo} we chatted for a while after he came back with a cup of lychee martini for each of us.. i even went over to wish jiajie happy birthday upon knowing that they will celebrating his birthday that night...

from the chat i found out that he's still in NS lo {oh my god, this young boy is like 7 years my junior lo...oopx... better dun let him know my age else it will be so embrassing for him lo... imagine picking up someone so much older than him... faint.... so i deducted my smartlab + contract teaching + uni life off my age and somehow or another he concluded that i was 21 years old...not i say one oh} so i conclude, this is not call lying, i merely agree with what he said mah... hahaha...

went back to my friends after the small chat and i thought that is that... my 艳遇with an NS boy.... =P ... hate the evil smiles that gerald, chunyang, ailing and yuan were giving me... especially so when i told them his age.... humph!!!

but perservering him came back to ask for a dance... {i conclude i was super high on alcohol to accept the dance too} ... but he was kinna fun to talk to leh... and he's the type of eye candy i like also leh.... tall tall thin thin one....you know you know.... so cant blame that i agree mah....

while we were dancing, i found out that he's a badminton coach during the weekend {woah, sporty guy leh}, national champion and school badminton captain leh.... does charity tuitioning on sunday morning also {double woah...such a nice guy to do volunteering at his age}...as he coached little kids, we had so much to share about how cute & horrible those little monsters whom we are teaching could be... and i likey cos his hands were very decent, 乖乖 stayed at my waist only, not like some other 'eat meat kings' who will 'ka you' one lo.... {Plus points for him} anyway, i was so engaged in our chit chatting that i din even realise that gerald and ailing were dancing just next to us to spot check on me lo... hahaha

i like the feeling of dancing in his arms and leaning against him while we played 5-10 with chunyang they all... {must be the effect of the alcohol}... =P ... i cant control my lips from grinning when he gave me my first princess kiss lo... totally melted... my favourite type of kiss leh- the kiss on the forehead... {i admit i m a sucker for fairytale kind of feeling}... and he kissed me twice on my lips....so sweet.... i dont know how he did it, i just dun feel offended lo.... although he was a stranger... {comfirm is the alcohol's fault}...

think the kisses was the last straw le... chunyang they all concluded that i had gone too far that night and told me that we had to leave...okay lo.... that's the end of a fun night with a stranger.... my first stranger.... haha..... byebye jason {he introduced himself as JASON which i later found out that he dun use this name at all lo}

he offered to send me home.... then dun want lo.... so dangerous.... so scary..... i then not that stupid lo.... god knows what got into me to even allow things to happen to this extend.... haha...

concluding thoughts: this guy damn brave and perservering lo... dare to approach me even though i was with my group of friends and not give up till the end....

The End {or so i thought}



How we both look like on our first encounter...
