Two of Everything

Filed in Family, Personal

When I heard that Mei Hua would be coming back for a quick holiday in November, I asked her if I could buy stuff online and have them sent to her address for her to bring back for me. She said no problem.

By the way, this is the same Mei Hua whose engagement I’d written about in my Chet’s Chatter v2, and which is now archived here.

This evening, I received the things I’d bought, altho not directly from Mei Hua, which was most unfortunate. What happened was she and her fiance Rob had arrived at KLIA on the evening of Thursday, 25 November 2004, and driven straight back to her parents’ house in Ipoh. So I have not seen her yet, altho, to be honest, I was more interested in the stuff she’d brought back for me than in seeing her. 😛

Good thing my niece had gone along for the weekend in Ipoh and had brought back my stuff for me.

Here’s what I bought:

Two of Janis Ian – Live: Working without a Net and Billie’s Bones (CDs)
Two of Amy Bloom’s A Blind Man can see how much I love you (books)
Two Sanford PhD 3-in-1 pen, mechanical pencil and stylus (pens)

My niece asked if one copy of the Amy Bloom book is for someone. Yes. Well, initially, yes, at the time I bought it. Now I’m not so sure anymore. I don’t mean I’m not sure about the message conveyed by the title of the book, but I’m not sure whether that someone would accept it or laugh and throw it in my face.

As for the Sanford PhD 3-in-1, one’s green and the other’s blue. I know … not good enough reason to buy two of the same. How about this – one’s a back-up in case I roasted the other on the dashboard of my car again? Yes, that’s what happened to the first Sanford PhD 3-in-1 I had.

As for Janis Ian … well, it’s Janis Ian. What more reason do I need?

About Mei Hua’s visit, I’d written that I can’t wait to meet her fiance when they visit in November. They’re here now, but it looks like I won’t get to meet him cuz they won’t be stopping in KL at all but will spend all their time in Ipoh and will be going directly to KLIA for their return flight. :(

Well, Mei Hua – thanks for bringing back my stuff for me. See you at your wedding dinner next year. :)
