valentine's gathering

Thanks to Joseph for the brilliant idea -- Valentine’s Gathering. It’s so cool when some of us feel unhappy for not having a date, partner or spouse to celebrate this celebration. It’s already so hard to get through everyday life alone and this day would make you hate chocolate and roses more!

So last night, even though I didn’t want to go at first, I chose to go at last since Nadia, Sean and Wilbur wanted to go and it won’t be nice if I cancel the plan at last minute. So at 6.30pm I drove out to fetch Joseph in Bayan Lepas and drove him to Jemputree as he had make a reservation and he wanted to be sure that everything is fine.

Then I drove to Pulau Tikus to fetch Nadia but the traffic was bad. I mean really bad! When Nadia came in, she gave to me a small gift box with a card. It was my birthday gift! I was speechless and big smile on my face. Thanks Nadia!

We reached at Jemputree at 8.20pm and everybody was there. Great! I’m such a shy guy and I hate being late when everybody will look at you. After shook hand and introduce my name, I went to the washroom for peeing. Good excuse. I had a good inhale and exhale to calm myself and went out of the washroom.

I sat beside Lukas and Nadia just sat beside me. In front of us were Sean and Wilbur. We ordered some foods and here come the heart pumping moment -- ice breaking session. I felt like I was in a course but it was good as I didn’t know them and to most of us, it was our first time meeting with each other. Started from Joseph as he was the organizer (stop pointing at me as the leader :P) and till my turn. I simply told my name, where do I live and where do I work but because Joseph and Mart were busy snapping pictures, I had to repeat my introduction again. Great! I’m a shy guy remember? Trust me.

The food was so so and the ambience was good. So, the food taste won’t be a spoil for the night as the real purpose was not that. After a while, we decided to go somewhere to continue the conversation and to know everyone of us better.

After few considerations, we decided to go to Sean’s apartment at Mutiara Perdana.

We had a great time with cit chatting, playing UNO, Monopoly, some drinks and crackers and a lot of jokes by Nadia and Sean. I was shy but I managed to get involved into the conversation. Maybe there was a reason for me to be so shy! We were there until 4am and then I drove home as Lukas wanted to take Nadia home. So that I don’t need to drive to town and drive back home. Thanks to Lukas!

When reached home, I washed my face, brushed my teeth and gargling my cool mint Listerine. I got few text messages telling me that the gathering was fun and hope to meet again next month. I think this group will become bigger and another good thing is I have been invited to join them for badminton every Saturday from 2pm – 5pm. Great! I love sport so much!

Thanks to Joseph, Nadia, Sean, Wilbur, Lukas, Ryan, Logan, Mart and Jonathan for making this gathering a successful one.


I am not sure about next month date but for sure I will be joining.
Blessed are they who have the gift of making friends, for it is one of God's best gifts. It involves many things, but above all, the power of going out of one's self, and appreciating whatever is noble and loving in another –Thomas Hughes-

  10. Hi there, shy guy...

    Firstly, thanks again for organising. Secondly, your birthday too??? So sorry we did not know.. but then, really.. we are too new to you.

    You guys did not play monopoly... You guys were so lazy even to start.. and what with you monopolizing the sofa mini-cushion.. :p

    Errr... I think Logan is not comfortable with his photo to be in public. I think. I may be wrong.

    But really, it was nice to know you.. although we did not talk much.. how could we? You kept sticking to Nadia.. :D
