I met Ted Baker!

Oh ok. Guess some of you know who is Ted Baker (no no, not the Ted Baker brand!). Last Tuesday I met him at Old Town in Bayan Baru. The reason why we chose Bayan Baru branch was because it's less crowded (oh ok, by now you should know that I hate crowded places (yes clubs too! enough clubs since I was a teen I suppose) and yes allergy to traffic jam). If I have a choice of meeting anyone, I surely choose somewhere not crowded so that I could have a peace of mind and great conversation!

Actually, Joseph wanted to meet Ted too but at first Ted didn't want to meet anyone but me. Simple reason -- shy. Lol. Ok, I was shy too. In fact, I'm a very shy guy! But in the evening, I smsed Ted again asked him whether it's ok for Joseph to join and he agreed (I hope not forcefully. Lol). I smsed and called Joseph but there was no answer. I thought he was sleeping but when I reached there he called and smsed me telling me that he just reached home. No idea why he reached late that night ad it was my fault too didn't let him know earlier. Ah, there's always tomorrow!

I met Ted around 8.30pm. I was lucky enough to get parking which was not far from the cafe. Oh, did I tell you that it rained heavily! (romantic eh Ted? Lol). Ok, I could tell which one was him as I saw his picture in his blog and YM. When we shook hand, the first thing came out from his mouth was "how do you recognize me?". I simply replied "I saw your picture in YM remember?". We both smiled and ordered our foods. Weird thing was the service was not that bad as described by others. I wonder. Er, yes it was quite hard to communicate with those pakistani aka bangladeshi. Still we got our foods as we ordered.

First round was Nasi Lemak and Ice White Coffee for me and Toast with Ice Cream and Hot White Coffee for Ted. While enjoying the late dinner, we had a great conversation. Non stop, yes. He could talk about many things such as works, politics, entertainment and even business. Ok, we were stuck at business part longer than the rest. I know, as typical me. I talk too much about business! Damn.

After a while, we both felt hungry again. Ok, another order. Toast with Ice Cream for me and Prawn Noodle for Ted. Both with Lime Juice (ok Ted with fresh orange ealier on, lots of talking eh Ted? Lol). It was a long chat again until they closed at 1am! Imagine that haha!

Anyway, it was a great time meeting you Cikgu Ted (sorry guys no picture of him, I don't dare to snap any as he is discreet I suppose? =p). I hope I could meet you again in the future.


P/s: Sorry that we couldn't meet tonight. I know you were tired of traveling.
