Gymless Weekend & The Pimping Of Shades

Kept missing all my favourite classes, one after another. On Friday, I was hoping to go for Richelle's pump class, but had to meet a client late in the evening, and by the time I was done, it was too late. Yhsmom had cautioned me not to go home after the meeting to sit on massage chair, as the last time I did that, I fell asleep and also missed the class.

On Saturday, well, I kinda figured that I wouldn't be able to attend matinee idol's combat in the curve, as I was hosting a farewell dinner for good friend who was going home to America after being here for 3 odd years. But still, hoping against all hopes, I managed to get dessert out of the way by about 2.30, which actually left me plenty of time to go for combat, but i figured by the time I get back from combat, it would be a bit rush to cook the main meal, which consisted of roast leg of lamb with rosemary and garlic, with a honey mustard glaze, zuchinni and mushroom pie, creamy potato and leek soup, fajitas, and a salad. So I opted instead for a massage. Got back about 5.30 and managed to get everything done by 8pm.

On Sunday, again, was targetting to go for 2nd FSI's step class, but after church, had lunch invite at sister's place, which was so filling I felt like a python who'd swallowed a chicken. Next up was a tea party at friend's place, and I had volunteered to make scones, so more baking. Grabbed a quick nap after the baking, and headed for the tea party. Then had a wedding dinner to go to, but 3 exerciseless days was beginning to irritate and stress me, so I managed to squeeze in a 40 minute aerobic workout, (following the Aussie Fit VCD), so at least managed a decent sweat.

Later that night, got a call from FCI who had returned from Penang and wanted to deliver something. Despite my adamant insistence NOT to buy me anything, which was conveyed to FCI's gf, he still dropped this off.

Bless the dear boy. So sweet of him.

On a separate topic, since Matinee Idol has been recently pimped by Shades, (and coincidentally saw a sharp rise in attendance in his saturday evening class, apparently), yhsmom and I thought we'd give Shades his lucky break. Turns out, he DOES bear a startling resemblance to a hong kong (or wah lai toi, to be exact) movie star, called Wong Hei. Hold your breathe, and be prepared to be startled by the STRIKING resemblance.....

A snippet of info from yhs mom:
"This guy is called Wong Hei. He appears quite regularly on Wah Lai Toi Hong Kong drama series and specialises in playing characters who wear uniforms i.e. policeman, fireman, customs officer etc, etc.
Actually these are some of his more "decent" shots, he has appeared completely nude before in a pictorial book shot in the Mongolian desert!"

The Original Shades

This shot of Wong Hei is ESPECIALLY uncanny. Even the dressing....
