Up Close and Personal.....

I was about to make an appointment with a neurologist, because everyday, there was a sudden ringing in my ears....a constant drone, like ice cream men of yore, except, with the Doppler Effect and all, you could hear the ice cream man coming, and going....but this was a constant ringing....

Then I realised the ringing usually starts at noon. Perhaps it was my diet, as I was prone to have irregular breakfasts and lunch, so maybe the lack of blood sugar was causing a ringing in my ears. Everyday, without fail, there it was, that ringing sound, almost like churchbells, except using mouse sized bells....

THEN I SAW IT...................


Argh, McVALUE lunch, RM5.95, with a guy holding the board, and bell, ringing it with the boredom of Quasimodo after vespers....

Phew, quite a hefty savings on the Neurologist bill.

Yeah, so anyway, after a celebrity filled Thursday, having met Ciki, Jackson, PM, Stephen Rahman Hughes all in one day, I bumped into yet another celebrity, in Ikano, after my Body Step class at the Curve. Truth be told, I knew he was going to there, as it was advertised in the papers, but I was trying my luck that he would be there up close and personal.

Well, AWHIFFOFLEMONGRASS was suitably envious.....

But don't be, coz I've even taken pics with him personally before. So it's not my first time seeing the guy. Ahem.

There was a big hooha over the entire episode. Pierre wasn't too happy about it, to put it mildly. BC had to publicly apologise. No sex pls, we're Sporeans..

Oops! that's the brit-ish.. :D

May I pls have your autograph on my copy of your dinner menu? *smiles sweetly*

FYI, the google ad on top of your post talks about 'tinnitus'..

fatboybakes said...

gfad, pierre as in png? the guy who gave her half his liver? well, yeah, i guess if i donated half my liver to some chick, i might not be amused if a chef toyed with it...the chick i mean, not the liver..

who are you asking for an autograph of? bobby chinn? what tinnitus again?

xin, ttdi has no mcD? GASP!!!! HOW CAN THAT BE!!!!!

I bumped into him while shopping for the baby shower with our PR manager that day too. He was shopping for his ingredients before the show.
