We Are Amongst The Flogging Luminaries

Of course, not a day goes by when I don't wake up and thank the Good Lord that I am SOOOOOO honored to be acquainted with one of the brightest luminaries of the food blogging world, awhiffoflemongrass, who by now, is hardly merely awhiff, but a full blown tornado, sweeping the globe with her famous blog.

Wife woke me up bright and early on Saturday morning, when I was QUITE hungover from KTT's birthday dinner, to tell me that my Female Acquaintance of the Year was almost a centrefold in the Saturday Star. There can be nothing that quite describes the feeling of being greeted with the full portrait of that star in my zombified state of residual alcohol reeking through my pores!


We are so so proud to be associated with you. Congrats on the article. Of course, Hairy Berry and I are wondering if that flattering portrait was taken by him or me.

I shed blood in posting this. As I reached out in my briefcase for my camera, I poked my hand on a stray dental floss toothpick....can you see the blood on my middle finger, just where the nail meets the flesh? I hope AWOL appreciates my efforts. AWOL.... hey, that's a great acronym!


On an unrelated note, since we are taking pictures of the newspapers, I thought the insanity streak comic strip was rather cute.

Argus Lou said...

We so-oooo needed to see the blood on the finger, man. Thanks, this aunty had to use a magnifying glass.

The Papa of Pavs, I name you.

If AWOL ever goes AWOL, it'd be mystery of the year...

GFrADabs said...

One of those peculiar things found in your bag eh? A dental floss t/pick. Hope it wasn't a used one. Might get septic..

Way to go, AWOL! I am so honoured our tastebuds are similar. At the very least, I know which restaurants to avoid.

FBB, if you ever want to set up shop, you can call it Pav Papa.. :D

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

haha which nicole u talking abt here..definitely not my nicole!

Jackson said...

waahh!! congratulations Meena. So, when is yr turn, FBB?

wmw said...

Congrats Meena, but uh...I guess this means you're no longer anonymous? :o)

fatboybakes said...

wmw, she hasnt been anonymous for awhile now. she's appeared in another centrefold some time back.

jackson, pleez la, i'm just some ciku rat 3rd rate blogger, compared with those ppl.

nipples, so, who you talking about?

gfrabda, (what a mouthful), haha, i think it was a clean one, but those plastic toothpicks are damn sharp. since gangrene hasn't set in after 24 hrs, i guess i'm fine. as for PAV PAPA, sounds like a good name, but arrrgh, PAVs are the least fave desserts of mine!

argus, guffaw, i chuckled at the thought of you using a magnifying glass to check out my blood.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

haha i blur d..i thought i was talking abt the nicole who wrote about AWOL..maybe can pimp us instead la..

fatboybakes said...

oh ya, nipps, didnt occur to me that you meant THAT nicole. echerlly, now that i look at the pic, she looks like quite a hawt chick hor.

"Joe" who is constantly craving said...

more the reason you should extend the invite and boost up ur prosecco stock soon hahaha...

Kenneth said...

oooooooooooo

lemongrass on centrefolds?

;)

he he .... notty notty.

aih that cut looks nasty ... is it as bad as a paper cut? :P hope it heals up faster. you want a quick relief tip? get liquid band-aid from guardian in telawi. closes up the wound ... instant relief.

fbb said...

haha, kenneth, thanks, cut healed oridi. but yeah, it was like a paper cut. damn painful. i dunno how women go thru childbirth.

nipples, well, my priority is to meet that ciki chik first. heh heh.

Simon Seow said...

Hm.. next time I must ask my lady boss to feature me in her column :p

Henry Yeo said...

When are you getting featured, FBB?

jason said...

Congrats to AWOL (lol)! *hugs

Life for Beginners said...

Heh. What LL doesn't mention is the nightmare she put me through when she asked me to remove a hand from her pic. Apparently I "overPhotoshopped" it and every version got plainer and simpler till... well, the only difference was the removed hand.

Or maybe I don't listen to instructions, well. Hahaha...

But she sure looks beautiful, dun she? :)

Paprika said...
