Airing Our Laundry - What A Riot!

With UnkaLeong being in town for two weeks, we got in touch and met up together with some other blogger friends of his and flogger friends too. First meet up was at Laundry Bar, The Curve. Was asked to join him and Sze of Jade(d) Poetry for drinks and he mentioned that Nigel might drop by. However, I was with another group of friends and decided to give it a miss.

Later, while I was at SS2 Pasar Malam I realised I had a couple of missed calls. Called back Nigel (asking me to go) and Lemongrass (telling me that she was going). So, about half hour later, there I was at Laundry Bar. It turned out to be some sort of a mini bloggers gathering. We talked about everything under the sky...and covered basically the essentials....love, food, health and sex, in a general way. Lemongrass and Nigel left earlier, leaving the rest of us to chat the night away. Check out Lemongrass and Nigel's blog for their take on that night. Especially so if you want to see a gorgeous pic of someone's six pack abs!

New friends made that night : -

Sze, of Jade(d) Poetry, is the envy of many. A Malaysian working in Bangkok at the moment for about two months, she is well traveled and actually stays in Budapest, Hungary. That night, we shared a bit with the guys on what women want! ;o) Sze mentioned to me that she doesn't really put pics of herself on her blog, so I shall refrain from posting her pics (but somehow, her pic is on the other blogs. Hee hee...).

Listening attentively apart from UnkaLeong, were (R to L) : Mervyn (charming young guy, the youngest around), Hengster (one who eats anything and everything with no questions asked!) and CatsnDogs (hard to imagine him calling himself AP - Attitude Problem as he was truly a gentleman).

We called it a night around 12 plus midnight and said our goodbyes. We had a blast and as we left, we said that we must get together again for more laughter!

The next day, UnkaLeong and I chatted online for awhile and for certain reasons, decided to meet up again with Nigel, Teckiee and myself for dinner. We ended up in Ang Kee, Cheow Yang and it turned out to be the first time for the three of them.

After the usual food dish photo taking session, they got a taste of some good tasty food from Ang Kee; La La Mee Hoon (Vermicelli with Clams), Lai Yau Har Ko (Butter Mantis Prawn), Homemade Steam Tofu with Egg and a vege dish. I guess they will be blogging about it at some point in time. Here's a previous post of mine on Ang Kee with pics of some of the dishes.

Since Nigel came bearing a box of Just Heavenly Pleasures (JHP) goodies, we adjourned to Nasi Kayu a few shoplots away for drinks and JHP desserts after we left Ang Kee. Teckiee's big round eyes lit up at the thought of being able to order Roti Tissue and we had an additional star on the table. Just look at the height of the Roti Tissue! Oh, we made another new friend, Adrian (pictured below), a friend of Nigel's who just so happened to be there. He had his first experience of seeing floggers at work and he was very amused.

UnkaLeong had asked Precious Pea along earlier, but she couldn't join us for dinner as she had dinner waiting at home. When she heard that Nigel had brought some goodies, she was ecstatic and she arrived half an hour later to meet up with us.

I have decided to be a more responsible citizen and not cause a frenzy amongst women (and men alike!) and post a photo of UnkaLeong taking a bite, rather than one of his abs! Ha ha ha.....Now, now, I know some of you out there wish you were the profiterole! LOL...

The REAL profiterole :o)

We talked about everything again while enjoying the yummylicious goodies, punctuated with Nigel's thunderous laughter most of the time! LOL....We ate, drank, talked and laughed the night away which ended memorably for Teckiee, Precious Pea and I. What? Let's just say, it's a touchy subject ;o)


Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait for the answer.

Can't wait to be part of the laughter family!

Lee Ping said...

I like your quote:

"Friends are those rare people who ask how you are and then wait for the answer."

Good friends are good listener and not just an artificial, "How are you?"

When I saw the word "Laundry" in your title, I was expecting to see some clothes pin photos.

You make food look delicious, clothes pin look good, and now, you make men look like studs.

p/s
I saw Unkaleong's abs. What a stud he is! Women (and men) after reading this article will be flooding his blog.

Lee Ping said...

I got carried away with the stud comment that I forgot to write my original comment.

I would love to master the art of making roti tissue.

wmw said...

kat : Yup, come we go together to JHP? Ha ha...

jason :Awwww....hee hee...Welcome to the laughter family!

Lee Ping : I like that quote too, very true. ha ha...so cute that you forgot about your original comment. Thanks for your wonderful compliment again but it isn't hard to make UnkaLeong a stud, 'cos he's already one! ;o) Woo hoo....

Kok said...

wmw,
How come so many gatherings one? I am tempted to organise one in Miri. haha!

Lee Ping said...

Enough stud talking for me. My laundry is piling up. Poor husband had to wear a pink shirt to work this morning because it was the only shirt that wasn't wrinkled. :)

boo_licious said...

Yum! So much good food and good company. Looks like Unkaleong is now super famous for his abs.

Hengster said...

Unka Leong complained to me last night that he got molested!
Is that true?

lyn said...

Aiyo...so much has been posted about JHP goodies, I really lau hau sui la! somemore have to wait till june to go have the choc durian again! Also so much have I heard about unkaleong's delicious abs I'm ABSolutely gonna check them out on the other blogs!

Tummythoz said...

Phitoy (who was driving me that Kayu night)! See what u made me miss?!! Ok, he does not read blogs so my screams r in vain. ;O
I can feel d fun pouring from your post. Nx time, take bus oso must join!

wmw said...

kok: Anytime can do a mini one. Yes, you can have one in Miri when you get back. MINI in MIRI...hee hee, your theme. But if you ever come over here, can also have a mini gathering! :o)

lee ping : LOL...you are so funny. But it must have been quite okay as he bought the pink shirt (unless it was a gift but he kept it nevertheless!) Wah! You mean, apart from the stud talking, you were staring at UnkaLeong's abs that long till you didn't do laundry? Ha ha ha....ROFL

boo_licious : Yup, we are helping him to find other income avenues ;o)

hengster : Hey there! He complained? Yes, everything he told you is true except that he didn't complained...he enjoyed it! Muah ha ha....

lyn : I think at this rate, we're gonna have BOTH JHP and UnkaLeong Fan Club! LOL...

tummythoz : Ha ha ha....How about relocating to PJ? You mentioned about it before :o)

UnkaLeong said...

Proceeds of sale from pics of abs will go to the next blogger's meet as suggested by Lemongrass...hahahah ;)

Sze said...

damn all that food looks fab.

and heh no worries about the picture.

come out on friday!

team BSG said...

that was some great fun u people had ya but plse nex round can V have some b--bs lah plse no more abs ( ok guys ? )

Lee Ping said...

Dear WMW,

Pink shirt, I bought because my Mom said pink will look good on man. I later found out special group of men wear purple and pink here.

Blogging is very addictive. Ashamed to say laundry had been piling up before the abs. Actually, I think I stared more at his face than at his abs.

p/s A couple more stops and off I go to the library with my baby and lunch with my hunk. And...laundry is caught up. Yeah!

Hengster said...

whats going on on Friday?

teckiee said...

did unkaleong just offered himself for bidding? ...oh wait.. his pictures.. not him... boohoo ....HEHEHHE

wmw said...

unkaleong : We will have to put in a special photo shoot session to get enough material for magazine compilation...Please choose a day slot after mid Sept and revert to us. Thank you. ;o)

sze : Friday....gotta go arrange with unkaleong. Hope to see you again...

team bsg :Hello, that request you would have to leave on blogs like FBB, Jackson, Unkaleong, Joe, etc...etc...etc...

lee ping : Ahh...maybe wearing the pink shirt keeps the girls away from him? Ha ha ha...Yah, unkaleong has got a handsome face also...Wah, he's so high up on the pedestal already....hahaha. 3 Cheers for finished laundry!

hengster : Drinks, I think, contact unkaleong for more details...

teckiee : Don't cry...there, there....I give you the other "un-postable" pic, okay? Ha ha ha.....

Lee Ping said...

OK, I am back. We ate all-you-can-eat sushi for lunch. So, it is time to digest food (more blogging).

Came back to see ....Teckiee's hands. Yeah, perhaps the pink shirts do keep the ladies away. Wearing a pink shirt or sweaty shirt, a stud is still a stud. :) After all these years, I still adore him and I think he knows that. I wonder if one of the studs
from your article posted a comment on my blog will make him jealous?

Jackson said...

ARRRrrr... y u guys alwiz choose the time when im busy?? sad sad.. u molested Unkaleong??

Paprika said...

oooh those profiteroles look deeevine. I also can't get over the size of that roti tisu! Crazy!

wmw said...

lee ping : And how do you find Teckiee's hand? Ha ha ha....Any studs posted? If not, Lee Ping, would you like me to arrange for it? hahaha...

jackson : You are always busy ler....let us know when you are free. Ha ha ha...

paprika : That roti is an attention grabber alright. We always look on in awe!

Kk said...

Wow ! Love the chocolate eclair. N what's that amazing roti tissue ! Looks tasty ! I know wat's a roti but it's not thaaat huge. What is it anyways ?

Timothy said...

Hey .... I never knew Hengster is in the group ! That dude is actually my ex-colleague .... gosh ! Small world .. small world !!!!

wonda said...

I've never eaten Roti Tissue before. Do you by any chance know any stall in Pg. that sells that?

wmw said...

kk : Hey there, good to see you around! The roti tissue is like the roti canai. It's crispy thin and sprinkle with sugar and sometimes it's drizzled with condensed milk!

Timothy : Yeah, so, another Oprah reunion moment? LOL...

wonda : Roti tissue is quite common at mamak stall that does roti canai. However, it's done in different shapes in different shops. So, I would think Penang would have roti tissue too.

Big Boys Oven said...

Wah so fun!!! The dishes become the models of the day, hehehee, I do the same too snap, snap.

wmw said...

big boys oven:Hello there....yup, actually that's the happiest time of floggers while eating....taking photos!
