Life Revolving Around Gym Folk

On Friday, had every good intention of going for Richelle's pump class, but decided to have a sit on the massage chair at about 6pm. To my horror, I dozed off, and when I regained consciousness, it was 6.42pm. To add insult to injury, yhsmom sms-ed me after saying I had missed a great pump class. Sigh.

On Saturday, headed to the Curve, to do HK Matinee Idol's combat class. Apparently yhsmom and lionheart refer to him as Lai Meng, supposedly an HK idol. It was a good class, and the guy obviously has his share of regular fans. Actually, the "Stuck On You" warm up is kinda nice. I like the tai chi thingie, as was the case with the "Breathe Easy" cooldown. Which come to think of it, is SUCH an appropriate title for Tai Chi!!!

No 1 in Tianjin and GF (Jacq) desserting

Young Wolf, hostess and FGXC

Shades Looking His Best

Saturday night heralded the long anticipated dinner hosted by yhsmom. The major dampener in the whole thing was that Lionheart had to pull out last minute due to pressing engagements. Who would regale us with tales of instructor faux pas, and idiosyncracies? Anyway, it was still an enjoyable evening, with yhsmom and Mr yhsmom playing the gracious hosts at Kah Soh. Fortunately the see tou por (boss woman) was also an FF member, so was rather accomodating, and very friendly with us.

The list of gym "luminaries"were: (drum roll).... the hosts, yhsmom and hubby, no1 in tianjin and girlfriend, shades (still FPI, for now) and gf, young wolf (yw[2k]), of body jam fame, FSI, Robin, the boy wonder, Richelle, FCI & gf, yhsmom's FGXC, (the ex GXC of MJH), and me & other half.

Brought orange mocha chocolate brownies for dessert. Alas, didn't have time to source for better ice cream, and could only get a local brand from the nearby GIANT. Then again, it wouldn't do for the ice cream to outshine the dessert.

Of course, FPI kept rubbing it in, by saying, nice ice-cream, and FSI was going nice chocolate. (with no reference to the actual brownie). FCI went out of his way to prove a point (my hitherto accusation that he never eats my desserts), and stuffed his face with two helpings.....with a most insincere compliment.

Thanks again yhsmom for hosting such a pleasant evening of fun, laughter, surrounded by good food and good company.... what more can one ask for!!!

nice to meet u young wolf. glad u like the brownies.

very strange, there was a comment by anonymous, but i'm not sure where he/she posted it, i cant seem to find it, but it said, "was it your son's birthday? I didnt know FCI had a gf, how long?"

(we get our comments from blog delivered via email)

the answer is, no it wasnt my son's (real or otherwise;) ) for the latter question, aiyo, gotta ask him yourself.

Kudos to both yhsmom and fatboy!

Great makan-outing. Great hosts, food was good, company was superb, and desert ... well was a "oh la la" amazing.

I felt like Oliver Twist asking fatboy,..."MORE PLEASE..." but had to hold my composure. :P

All in all - great one. J & me has a good time.

The Chocolate brownie with orange zest was fantastic as always ...

Heartfelt thanks to yhsmom and brownies Sifu for such a warm dinner!

Had a really good time over a cosy place, fabulous company & once again reminded how I love brownies.

Nice conversations exchanged with everyone plus a special request frm FPI to hop into "Cecair". Looking forward for more in future. Cheerio. :)

jean: be patient, i'm sure the flourless choc cakes will find its way to your stomach soon.

jacq : nice meeting you. i was also a bit taken aback by FPI's desire to check out non-solids and non gaseous matter..... aka cecair.

dr combat: please lar, why so shy one? you shoulda asked for more. instead, FCI went and gobbled down the last piece, not because he liked it, but only to prove a point....sigh, what a waste.

Thank you everyone for being such wonderful guests!
Was rather apprehensive at the beginning when Lionheart pulled out but the dinner turned out to be really really enjoyable regardless.
A special thanks to FB!
