Chinese Valentine Day


Background picture is from www.petertan.com

The 28th February is the 15th day after Chinese New Year is also the Chinese Valentine Day. So it's obvious I'll visit the two loves of my life. No it's not MAC and the Candy shop but JH and Elisa. I would have happily visited TJ and Elyn if I could too but TJ is too far and Elyn is still probably busy with her new house, which I'm hoping to get the address for.

E's new work place looks great and everything seems to be looking up for her. All her problems have started to untangle and she's looking happier than she's been for a while. As for JH and I, we went around searching for my belated V-Day pressie. We still didn't manage to find it but dinner up in Bt. Ferringhi was delish! JH couldn't sit still after hearing some recommendations from Leanne during our QueenBay Mall outing with the group. The price was alright for Italian food and the atmosphere was pretty romantic but parking was a *toot

After dinner, JH offered to bring me to throw oranges at Gurney but the traffic jam was horrendous so I decided to just skip that. Afterall I've already found the love of mi life :D atleast that's what I tell him. Truth be told, it's because I forgot to buy a watermelon and spray paint it orange.

Mission: Disguise watermelon as orange.

Why?: So I'll have the biggest orange in the whole of Penang and which guy can miss that?! (unless they are blind)

[Insert delusional laughter]

For those who doesn't know, Chap Goh Meh (15th Night) is a night when single females would throw oranges into the sea in hopes of finding love.

I'm not entirely too sure but I think long ago, they used to throw plain oranges into the sea, but now adays, girls would write their name and phone numbers on the oranges before throwing so that the guy whom pick up the orange would know whose orange it was. Anyway the best part is, I doubt they can even pronounce my name so they probably won't call. MUAHAHAH! And since the name Ashley is unisex and the only person they would know with this name is the footballer Ashley Cole, they'll probably think I'm a guy *sigh*

Anyway GameForge has been organizing FNM, Friday Night Magic for some time now. Before you think we all sit in a circle, hold hands and have a seance, or have some magic show, (Hocus Pocus, Hudoo Pudoo, do the things I tell you to doooo) let me clarify that FNM is actually Magic: The Gathering Friday Night drafting and last Friday was my FIRST Magic drafting.

Was nervous as hell since I am the noobest of the noobest so I asked for Bouncer's help. Bouncer is a guy, all magic players would love to kill cause of his God's Hands. He's able to pick up the best packs in a box and is able to tell which packs has a bad rare or even a foil. How he does it is beyond me, or any of us. He's a nice guy nevertheless. For that night, he was my partner in crime.

I ended with a green/white deck and the thing is that I was suppose to learn from Bouncer but everything happened so fast but before I knew it, the game was over and I came in 3rd with Bouncer's help.

I lost one game to Rom's mono black deck. T.T Booo!
