On Sunday night, Li Ling threw a belated birthday party. Those present were: Chun Hong, Jino, Wai Loon, Chiam, Phon, Len Yi, Soo Ee, Li Fah, Ching Yeng, Kian Ti, Melody, Eileen, Li-Shia, Wai Yin, Tsu Wern, Fiona, Pearl, Yin Ching, Phak Hoe, Kiat Yee, Li Ling's cousin and me.
We had steamboat, grilled ham and sausages, and some mashed potato courtesy of Ching Yeng. Interestingly, the largest stomach of the class, Phak Hoe, was late by over an hour!
Oh well, Li Ling was probably one of the few who exhibited some restraint, for amidst confetti and camaraderie, the night was witness to the following:
Jino attempting (albeit unsuccessfully) a drunk look.
Chiam lamenting his lack of height, hence placing his chair on higher ground.
Wai Loon on guitar... Woohooo! (he reprised his famous 'Happy Birthday' performance)
Kian Ti making the Channel V sign with chopsticks, bracketed by his left hand.
Fiona and Chun Hong stepping on each other's toes.
Chiam tucking into sausages, though claiming to be on a diet.
Li-Shia 'urinating' 100 Plus. (she accidentally tipped over a can lying at her feet)
Ching Yeng fiddling with the padlock key, deliberating with much hesitation whether or not to open the gate for Phak Hoe and Kiat Yee.
Chiam and Li-Shia attempting all sorts of intimate poses.
And the highlight of the night... Phak Hoe kissing Jino as a 'thank you' for the Ultraman figurine he, Fiona, Wai Yin and Yin Ching bought.
A very fun night, infused with music from the piano, guitar and voice... but most of all, from the laughter of a bunch of friends having a great time.
I once thought, 'maturity' is the token by which grown-ups sulk longer and play less. So long as we can, play on! We won't be young forever, after all.
Thanks Li Ling!

A little older, a little wiser?
