My Valentine’s Day

rainie lunch

I met this girl at TDH last Saturday morning. I was early (actually everyone else was late, I was late by 45 minutes myself) and I got there first. I saw this girl laughing while watching a movie on her iPad so I went over, said hello and ended up talking to her for an hour.

It turns out that her name is Rainie – I added her on Facebook and got her number. I said I’ll call and we’ll meet up for lunch or something next week…and today, that’s exactly what we did. There’s some epicness in the middle but for the sake of length, I’ll leave that out.


This afternoon, on the 14th of February, I went out for lunch with β€œthe TDH girl” (as she will be affectionately known) and made plans for dinner.

It was very casual, the plan was no plan and we ended up having dinner at Wong Kok Char Chang Teng (of all places!) coz she was sick and wanted to eat porridge. There wasn’t any porridge so she made do with ramen and hot lemon honey juice.

I think we spent 3 hours there talking until the movie started. She’s someone I can click with and there’s definitely something going on here.

She looks different every time I see her! It’s like she turns more attractive each time I meet her. It kinda scares me coz I don’t recognize her for a split second each time she waves at me!

I don’t know what comes next. I won’t pretend I do. We’ll see if this works out.

I’m just glad:

  • I went to TDH last Saturday at that particular time
  • I made it to lunch today
  • We spent 6 hours together on Valentine’s Day night despite work tomorrow

…a lot of things would have been different if any of those decisions were made differently.

I’m just glad things turned out the way they did. πŸ™‚

  1. Good luck, HB! Que sera sera, but I really hope this will turn to be a fantastic, long-lasting relationship. Rainie looks sweet and you deserve it πŸ™‚

    All the best!

  2. so she’ll be another chewing gum? chew and throw? bah i met and date girls hotter than her all the time. nothing to brag about. her face look normal and shes too short.

  3. “We’ll see if this works out.” Don’t see! Make it work out… May not be easy. Lots of understanding and sacrifices – that’s true love. Would need to give and take. She looks really nice and sweet.

    • Thanks for the advice Arthur! πŸ™‚

      Yup, it needs a lot of hard work and sacrifices. I’m planning to give this the good ol college try.

      She is nice and sweet (and attractive too). πŸ˜€

    • Hmm…I didn’t know her *at all* at that time.

      Rainie was a total stranger to me then, but I looked over and felt like I wanted to get to know her better so I sat at her table and talked to her. πŸ™‚

      I wasn’t doing anything at that time, still waiting for my friends so I thought I might as well meet someone new who I thought was interesting. πŸ˜€

    • Well, I just thought she looked interesting and I wanted to get to know her better…so I went over and talked to her.

      It was the best decision I made. πŸ™‚

  4. You’re brave for walking up to her which is awesome. You’re even more brave to post this up. Does she know about this blog entry? If she’s not shy – means she’s like you, she’s brave as well. You both look really quite alike fu-chai-seong. Hehehe…. keep us posted k?

    • Thanks Kim! πŸ™‚

      I don’t think she reads blogs but I did tell her about it. Heh.

      Well, in certain things, she’s like me but in others, she’s the complete opposite. She’s a Cancer.

      She hates drugs, while my position on that is pretty well known.

      Sure thing, I’ll definitely keep you posted. Thanks for the kind comments Kim! πŸ˜€

    • Haha! It’s from Cuffz in Bangsar Village. πŸ™‚

      I totally couldn’t pull it off.

      Thanks Kim! Appreciate the well wishes! πŸ˜€

    • Yes, that is fate or destiny or however you want to look at it. πŸ˜€

      I’m glad I was there that day.

      Totally seizing the opportunity here.

      Thanks Constance! πŸ™‚

  5. HB, I think you own her a raincheck on the Valentines dinner when she is better. What kind of food did you order? My mother told me she met my late dad on a blind date and after one week went to Reno and got married. She dated before lot dates and with that blind date he was the one over twenty years.

    • Plans are being made, my friend. πŸ™‚

      I ordered some fish roe cheese baked rice dish.

      Interesting story, you find love in all sorts of places. πŸ˜€

    • Thanks Eiling!

      Heh! I really wanted to get to know her so I ended up spending Valentine’s Day with her – both lunch, dinner and late into the night. I didn’t sleep at all.

      She’s a nice girl. πŸ˜€

  6. Beware of gals that seems very easy to catch…what if she is:

    -mistress kept by one big Taikor having off day trying to relax herself out
    -deeply in credit card debt problem looking for fund raiser
    -just found out she got permanent STD so she just relax herself out
    -single mother with 3 small kids from 3 different sperm donours and looking for Mr.Right
    -insurance agent with tight deadline
    -on temporary parole leave from state prison
    -psychology subject released for behavioural study(and trap subject) from top asylum centre
    -MLM agent with tight deadline looking for RM40K deposit programme

  7. This is a good proof of probability theory works or not for setting up Dating Agency business

    You may hates Math and probability subject but two thing useful in practical probability:

    1. Usage in gambling software eg. Lottery software, stock market analysis software etc. (Quantative probability)
    2. Random Dating is a unique form of probability theory (Qualitative/Emotions probability)

    I think HB should open a Dating Agency firm based on his believe in random girl pick-up and odds of success from it

    Random dates is science of emotional attraction and probability of odds in one mix (You gamble and have fun simultaneously)

    Using these basic ideas, HB Dating Agency can give you various random dates package at very flexible cost

    The Client will be given prefered locations based on the most visited place by females under 30 yrs age within certain radius and the Client will be dropped there so good luck wished

    There are many packages based on female traits targets (education, physical, religous background target etc), time period, privacy level, and money back guarantee shall things fails but mandatory congrats message if target captured as Agency success appraisal promotion

    So there you go HB, not all is bad about random dating in fact a multi-million dating business as well who knows…!


      Bro, you wrote such a long business proposal.

      (assuming you’re a guy).

      Okay, actually that sounds workable. You wanna be an angel investor? πŸ˜‰

    • We’ve broken up for a long time already. We’ve stopped seeing each other since middle of last year but remained friends.

      It doesn’t matter who dumped who, no one did that.

      It was a mutual breakup, very civil. πŸ™‚

    • She’s a nice girl.

      Oh well, you don’t know me, I don’t know you.

      Tsk. Armchair critics with mommy issues and a case of the green eyed monster (that’s envy if you didn’t understand the reference).

      There, there…
