Twosome, Foursome And....Sixsome!


When Eugene sms-ed me to say that we were supposed to meet in Oriental Karaoke at 4pm, I was feeling excited and ecstatic! As "we" all know, I love to sing (never mind the voice!), secondly, to meet up and sing with my regular bloggers is such Rarity and thirdly, the meet-up place is just 5 minutes walk from my hotel.. lol... (but of course, I did not walk there la!)

Upon entering the Oriental, carrying a big recycle bag, I really felt I looked like Ah Lian.. hahaha.. the guard greeted me and I quickly took out my hp to phone Eugene... In a matter of seconds, I saw him right in front of me with a Big Smile on his face. He was so chic looking, you all should see him then, with a cowboy hat, a dark blue navy T and a rugged pair of pants... wahhh....he really look like an artiste... a cowboy singer! hahahaa......

Very quickly, I was ushered into a dim and yet cosy place and there, someone else came out to greet me... he is none other than Arthur Wee aka STP...... another big smile on his face too.. I felt so happy to see them again!

Then I thought we would be going to a karaoke room....but nooo, Eugene said we could just sing from the place where we were sitting.... GOSH... I remember telling them that I would be too shy to sing in public... cis... I shouldn't have said that... after STP started the ball rolling singing one or two songs, my supposedly "shyness" was nowhere to be seen! lol... It was so much fun singing in public after all!!

STP, Eugene... both of you know so many songs and both of you can sing so well, my goodness!! I must go for singing classes la!

And...Now for the pictures....

Yes, started with a twosome..
HEY, A DUET only la...
Lionel Richie and Diana Ross?
lol... finally, we made it, STP!
pstt...think we can burn an album someday?? lol....

Ok, the above picture was cropped out from this foursome!
Eugene gave me the idea.. twosome, foursome...

(Jessie, Mandy, Arthur, Eugene, The Man)
I am sure many of you are curious who the man is
on the right, Right?? lol....
Before I reveal who he is, I wanna say a Big THANK YOU
to Eugene & his lovely wife for organising such a joyful
and memorable night for me, for us....

Thank you for the Goodies, Eugene, Arthur, Mandy!
those of you who didn't attend, you miss out a lot.. hahaha...
The Goodies came all the way from Sibu, Bidor, Penang, Ipoh (me paiseh)
Lastly, I really enjoyed myself and I HOPE that there will be another night like this again!!

psst.. Arthur, when is your next trip to Penang?
Oh, before I forget, the MAN whom most of you are not familiar with is from this BLOG. :) and now you know who he is... lol....

  34. Wow! Glad u had a great time there, Claire. From Melaka straight to Penang? Wah! Salute...I would have dropped dead!

  35. Claire, my dad passed away the moment he reached the retirement age (55). He didn't even get to enjoy. The last year before he retires, he was worried about not having work, how to past time etc etc instead of thinking of what he will do to enjoy life, where he should travel to etc etc. Now that my mom is alone, she is just the same as my dad. We asked her to go out and spend time with friends, go learn dancing or singing (things she likes) but she refuses. My mom doesn't know how to use a computer and she's 60. Else I will definitely ask her to read your blog and positive blogs of other retirees like suituapui etc...

  36. Oh! So that man is Bananaz! Haha!! OK now I know : D

  37. haha thanks for revealing Bananaz!! hahaha

  38. WOW!! It look so much fun and i know all of you enjoy yourself to the max!

    Now everyone can see Bananaz's "face" in your blog already.

  39. I should have known you guys earlier so that I can join in the fun!! Next time you come KL, I take you go singing okay hehe.
