Yesterday (21st September 2007) was me & dar's first-date anniversary! I still remember clearly the events that took place on this particular day/date one year ago. It was a friday and i was held up by my MNO project meeting at YIH's Chunky Monkey. Poor dar, Alvis then, had to wait by the roadside, with his bike, for yours truely. I was casually dressed in a white tank top and short denim skirt while dar had on a pair of berms + blue longsleeve tee + sneakers + Levis denim jacket. I felt really "paiseh" about making dar wait for 30mins but it kinda proves that he is a really patient guy. Plus points! =) Actually, i shouldnt feel embarassed about it because even if i was punctual, dar would still have to end up waiting for me cause I bet you, he came 15 minutes earlier so he could style his hair in the toilet. Muahahaha.
Furthermore, wearing shoes on ur first date goes to show that one not only takes pride in his/her image but also treats the occasion (first date) with due respect and importance. Plus plus points! =)
Time was 8.45pm. I was starving. Needless to say, dar as well. I gave the man the honour of making the dinner venue, choice of food, etc, decision. Dar was decisive (plus points!) and suggested Swensens, the one located opposite Paragon. Plus plus points to the fact that he didnt pick a hawker centre, kopitiam, or roti prata house for dinner. He wouldnt even stand a chance if he said "The CheesePrata Shop". Muahahaha. =Pp
Time to hop onto the bike! FYI, it wasnt my first time riding a bike. My ex-bf used to ride one too and he always made it a point to lend me a hand whenever i had to get down, or mount a bike. Used to such treatment, i sort of expected dar to do the same, but he didnt! So not gentlemanly. Minus points! =Pp
Dinner was alright. We had fish and chips and shared an ice-cream too. Because i felt really bad about being late and all that, i thought it would only be fair that we split the bill/i treat so as to make it up to him but dar declined and dinner ended up being on him. Plus Points! =)
Come to think of it, dar must have been really stressed by my non-stop and incessant chatter during the meal. After all, if you know him long enough, you would have noticed that he has a i-dont-talk-when-i-eat policy. Ha ha.
Dar sent me home after dinner. We ate till about 10.11pm. I was tired from school and there was no where else to hangout as most of the retail stores were pulling down their shutters already. Home sweet home it was then.
...and that's how my first date went. How about yours?
