Thank you God and the weather was very cooperative. We had an al-fresco dinner at Indo-chine. Paui was in his "james bond" costume and I was in a formal dress. The staff at Indochine mistook us for attending a formal event for that night. Which was good because they were so very attentive. hehe.
And there, when our capsule (which we had all to ourselves by the way complete with champagne, chocolates and strawberries) was at the very top, Paui went down on one knee and asked me to marry him.

strange boy: today is friday right (with thick accent)
me: Yes, today is friday (trying to get the accent)
strange boy: so today is friday then tomorrow saturday...right?
me: erm, yes, tomorrow would be saturday (already weirded out)
strange boy: (started to tap his head) so today is friday, tomorrow saturday, then sunday then next is Monday
me: um...yeah? (desperately wishing now for my bus to arrive)
strange boy: (tapping his head more furiously now) friday? saturday? tall tall? (starting to act out some gesture)
me: (helpless and scared shitless now) um sorry? (trying to break eye contact)
strange boy: (still tapping his head and doing the hand gestures)
me: (running first to bus 37 when it arrived)
maybe i'm being tested on my calendar skills? hahahahaha.

For my friends who have endured my rant a few months back on this blog (and some who had to suffer my whinings and cryings and bitchings in person), I just want to announce that I have now paid all the huge debts incurred by my family. And I got their assurance (in writing and in the spoken form) that this would never, ever, ever happen again. (sana totoo or else I'm just a poor overworked sucker).
Thank you Lord. I have cried and worried many nights for this. And He has helped me so immensely and humbled me in my initial lack of faith.
I just feel so...so...free....hahahahahahahahahahaha.
shoe shopping anyone? :))
So Paui and I accompanied them to Chinatown where much to the sheer delight of our already hungry stomachs, we found the store on our first try (tamang exit! yes!). So before proceeding with completing Jco's mission (yun lng tlaga pinunta namin sa china town), we had yummy yummy dinner first (oo na tito boy, lumobo na po ako. hehehe. bitter).
Happy stomachs dahil malapit na mabusog...Ang bawal kay Paui...
Anyway, most of my morning was spent in the MOM office getting my E Pass.And while waiting to get it, I had breakfast in a nearby cafe. I got my order and naturally assumed I would pay after I ate it. I was a bit taken aback when the waitress gave me the bill and asked me to pay, then she apologetically explained that some people forget to pay their bill. Hmm...already I was feeling a slight stigma of being a Filipino in Singapore. Dorothy is really not in Bangkok anymore.
Anyway, here is my 7 SGD worth of breakfast (which still left me feeling hungry):
After I got my Epass, I went straight to my new office. Hehe . And since there really was nothing else to do on my first day, I started taking pictures of the cubicle I shared with Raine.
