A Day In My Life With Witch, Saucer And Merryn

I had a fun time last Sunday meeting up with fellow bloggers Witch and Saucer for a karaoke session at RedBox at The Curve.

I was looking forward to sing my heart out for 3 hours but my expectation was dampened when the counter girl at RedBox told us we could only sing for 2 hours. I was like, what the......!!

And guess what's the reason? RedBox's policy for the morning hours - 3 hours are only for 4 people or more, and since there's only 3 of us, we were only allowed a measly 2 hours.

If that's the case, RedBox should have informed us of this rule when we called in earlier to book! We were quite pissed off!! I could not help but felt cheated.

And this was not the first time I felt short-changed by RedBox. Oh well, that would be another story for another day! Should we go Neways next, Witch and Saucer?

Anyway, we didn't waste time and quickly key in the songs we wanted to sing. 2 hours can pass real fast while you are in the karaoke room, you know. I have spent more than 6 hours in a karaoke room before and I can tell you it felt like just 3 hours! LOL!

Too bad karaoke was not in existence during Einstein's time or he would have figured out how time got distorted in karaoke rooms!! Haha!

OK. Lame joke : )

I was eagerly waiting for Saucer and Witch to sing the song Endless Love which they sang during their wedding dinner. Oh, goodness! I was impressed with their singing! Applause!! The song really suited them well.

Now, I am not saying they sang as good as the original singers - just in case those who have heard them sing during their wedding dinner happen to be reading this now. I'm just saying they sang it pretty well - good enough for me to say "Well done!" Of course there are a some...hmmm, pitchy parts here and there.... but I better stop here before I sound like Randy Jackson of American Idol! Haha!

Besides, it's better to praise them so they will continue to go karaoke with me. And who knows, maybe they think my singing sucks big time so better not say anything remotely bad. Keep up the good singing, Witch and Saucer! Haha!

Oh, here's a photo I took of this beautiful couple singing. Too bad the lighting was not conducive for a good photo so this is the best I could come up with.

Photobucket

Since all three of us are bananas (and I don't mean the fruit) we sang only English and Indonesian songs. It was fun!

Alas, 2 hours passed quickly and before we knew it, our karaoke session was over! That cost us about RM17 each inclusive of a set lunch and drink. Not too bad you say? Well, it was OK but 3 hours would have been more worth it!

I did not even bother to take photos of the food because what can I say? They were lousy!

After that, we decided to go to Dragon-I for lunch. Yes I know, we just had lunch in RedBox right? But both Witch and Saucer wanted to try its RM1 chicken promotion. There was a queue and we waited. Luckily it was not a long wait but when we got to our table, we discovered that the RM1 promotion was only available from 6pm-9pm! What a bummer!

Being rather thick faced, we just left. Haha! And off we headed to IKEA for its hotdog and curry puff. Guess what? I forgot to take a photo of that hotdog! This was my first time eating IKEA's hotdog (OK, say I'm ulu if you want to!) and it was nice! Maybe that's why I forgot to take a photo of it! Haha!

You can add in your own fillings (no limit) and the price was only RM2!! Pretty good deal, no?

After that we returned to the Curve and visited the Sony shop on the 1st floor while waiting for the arrival of Merryn. Why were we waiting for Merryn? Because she was supposed to meet up with me so that I could pass her the piggy bank I bought from Bali.

Now this piggy bank was actually won by Tekkaus in one of my contests, but he was so kind hearted and donated it to Ethan, Merryn's son! Now wasn't he nice?

Don't worry, Tekkaus! For your kindness, I have got a gift for you and it's on the way to Melaka right now....provided Pos Malaysia is as effective as I hope of course! : )

When Merryn came, we pulled off a prank that made her almost fainted! If you had not been following me on Facebook and Twitter, you would probably not know what prank we pulled off on Merryn.....and what's worse, Merryn later joined us to pull off a prank on our readers!!!

So to keep this post short, why not hop over to Merryn's blog and read the full story?

There is one very important reason why I wanted to meet up with Merryn. It's because I wanted to meet up with Ethan too! And finally, on that very Sunday afternoon, I got my chance to meet that cute, cute little boy!

Look! I took quite a number of photos of Ethan. Ain't he cute?

Photobucket

Now some of the photos here are a bit blurry because I was too excited and my hands were shaking. Also, Ethan kept moving away from me and I had a hard time taking his photos!

Ethan having a heart to heart chat with his new found piggy friend!

Finally! After much effort, got this shot!

Look! Ethan was so shy with me and Witch he hid behind that piggy! So cute!!!!

Photobucket

But I did not give up and kept snapping away! It's not everyday I can see Ethan, you see.

Photobucket

And I think I was quite happy to finally get to meet him although he refused to talk to me! Hmmmph!!

Photobucket

Oh well, we had a good time chatting at Starbucks in Borders and the topic ranged from nuffnang, to AdSense, to irenelim, to gossip about fellow bloggers.

Photobucket

Merryn, Witch and Saucer, let's do this again soon! : )

    April 12, 2010 at 4:04 PM
  7. iamthewitch said...

    Btw, the redbox said SIX persons only can sing 3 hours, not 4. :( And they asked us to top up a freaking RM50 for that extra hour! Crazy! Yes, let's go Neway next time!

    Ethan so actsy hor.. haha.. maybe learnt from you foong! :P

    April 12, 2010 at 4:07 PM
  8. mNhL said...

    Oh Gosh!! 2 hours for the karaoke sessions is definately NOT ENOUGH.

    April 12, 2010 at 4:20 PM
  9. [SK] said...

    Redbox is like that one lah, that's why I always prefer Neway.. and the food is a lot nicer there!!

    April 12, 2010 at 4:21 PM
  10. [SK] said...

    only 2 hours for three person, really not enough!! it's like you just sing few songs, and maybe wait for others to sing, then eat your lunch, and pup!! time's up!!

    April 12, 2010 at 4:22 PM
  11. [SK] said...

    maybe next time you want to go during off-peak.. maybe a sunday night, then they should be allowing you guys to sing all night long provided there's not much customers.. :)

    April 12, 2010 at 4:23 PM
  12. [SK] said...

    hmmm, long time i've not been to karaoke already.. i remember when Redbox was new here, i used to go there every week with a friend, and then we make friend with the booking receiptionist, and she allows us 3 hours (or more) for two person!! hehehehe~~

    April 12, 2010 at 4:24 PM
  13. [SK] said...

    yeah, i read your message in FB this morning, and i was like - how could this be?? so i quickly go to the link you provided..

    April 12, 2010 at 4:25 PM
  14. [SK] said...

    anyway, i didn't really believe it, i kind of suspect it couldn't be true that foongpc=saucer lah.. you won't just put the link to announce to the world right?? you so secretive~~

    April 12, 2010 at 4:26 PM
  15. [SK] said...

    so i also suspect what merryn put is not true..
    1) you were in bali, and they were in china
    2) the writing style in both blogs are not the same
    3) you've written about hanging out with witch and saucer before.. don't think you'd be so lame to write about hanging with them both if you are saucer himself right??

    April 12, 2010 at 4:27 PM
  16. Tekkaus said...

    Why only 2? There is such a rule and restriction huh! Too bad. :/

    April 12, 2010 at 4:28 PM
  17. [SK] said...

    and i was right!! foongpc is still that panda that only show his legs (and hair).. hahaha!! :D

    April 12, 2010 at 4:28 PM
  18. Tekkaus said...

    Are you sure you are not Saucer bro? Don't worry I'll check up. Hahaha :D

    April 12, 2010 at 4:30 PM
  19. Tekkaus said...

    I am glad that Ethan has received his little piggy. yeah! :D

    April 12, 2010 at 4:31 PM
  20. [SK] said...

    i've tried the RM1 chicken at their MV outlet.. and it was not bad at all.. just need to order a main dish and you can get the chicken at only RM1, we had half chicken for two person..

    April 12, 2010 at 4:32 PM
  21. [SK] said...

    hey, i actually thinks IKEA food are not bad at all.. the hotdog and curry puffs are nice.. and also their signature swedish meatballs, and i also like their daim cake!! hahahaha, feel like eating them now~~

  48. jam said...

    I am looking for a karaoke session with you seeing that you can sing a lot and apparently sing quite well too!

    April 13, 2010 at 3:33 PM
  49. jam said...

    Wonder if we have karaoke rooms in Redang. How nice it would be to sing under starry sky?

    April 13, 2010 at 3:34 PM
  50. jam said...

    BTW, your face had not been revealed. Keep using your panda face, haha!

    April 13, 2010 at 3:35 PM
  51. jam said...

    But I still think my panda face is cuter! Let's hold a competition for our readers to vote!

    Going for a two-hour karaoke session is just like eating only one durian - not satisfied. hehe...

    caroline ng, yes Ethan is very cute! It's good to gossip! Haha!

    April 14, 2010 at 2:02 AM
  54. foongpc said...

    iamthewitch, sorry about the "fat" photo - have replaced it with a "slimmer" one : )

    April 14, 2010 at 2:02 AM
  55. foongpc said...

    mei teng, what celebrity blogger? No I am still an anonymous blogger : )

    April 14, 2010 at 2:03 AM
  56. foongpc said...

    iamthewitch, oh it was six and not four? They must be kidding! Yes, let's go Neway next!

    What do you mean Ethan so actsy and learnt that from me? I am not actsy at all!!

    April 14, 2010 at 2:04 AM
  57. foongpc said...

    mNhL, yeah definitely not enough. I need at least 3 hours! : )

    April 14, 2010 at 2:05 AM
  58. foongpc said...

    SK, yeah I prefer Neway too! The food there is nicer but their songs are not as update as RedBox though.

    Yes, 2 hours is definitely not enough for 3 people. I have tried before non peak periods and sang for 8 hours straight of which 4 hours were for free!! : )

    Haha, you did some detective work to determine if that Saucer is indeed not me? LOL!

    Huh? You had half chicken for 2 persons? I thought they stated in the promotion leaflet that there must be a min of 3 people to qualify for the RM1 chicken? Maybe that was the older promotion. Btw, Canton-I is also having the same promotion.

    Yes, IKEA food is quite good, though I think their curry puffs have dropped in standard.

    April 14, 2010 at 2:10 AM
  59. foongpc said...

    tekkaus, yes very unfair to have such restrictions and we were not informed beforehand!

    No I am definitely not Suacer and you can come visit us in KL to verify for yourself! : )

    April 14, 2010 at 2:12 AM
  60. foongpc said...

    reanaclaire, wow! you have a Bonnie Tyler's voice? Must be very powerful sure drown us out with your voice! Sure you are welcome to join us! : )

  61. foongpc said...

    bluedreamer27, every time you sing in karaoke it rains? That's funny!!

    Yeah it's not me, I'm still the panda, haha!

    You don't have to investigate cos one day I'll go Philippines to meet up with you! : )

    April 14, 2010 at 2:16 AM
  62. foongpc said...

    Yes, the pig is pretty big. Bigger than Ethan's head? Haha!!

    April 14, 2010 at 2:17 AM
  64. foongpc said...

    merryn, I hope Ethan likes the pig! Haha!

    Oh the sms! Haha! Yes, Ethan is compulsory, your hubby is optional. LOL!

    OK, I've replaced the photo already - now all 3 of you look slimmer..I hope! : )

  74. foongpc said...

    CH Voon, no need to employ the Detective, just meet up with me lah! Easier and cheaper, haha!!

    April 14, 2010 at 2:25 AM
  75. foongpc said...

    J2Kfm, Yes I've been to Neway and it's definitely better in terms of food and service. But songs a bit outdated and sound system not as good as RedBox.

    April 14, 2010 at 2:26 AM
  76. foongpc said...

    jam, how you know I sang quite well? You haven't heard me sing before! I hope you don't puke after hearing me sing OK! : )

    Ooh yes singing under starry skies would be nice! Maybe you bring along a guitar to strum while we sing? Haha

    No, my panda face is cuter than yours. No need competition - you surely lose. Haha!!

    April 14, 2010 at 2:28 AM
  77. foongpc said...

    happysurfer, haha it's definitely not enough for me, like eating half a durian, not one!! I need 6 hours of karaoke!!! : )

    April 14, 2010 at 2:29 AM
