Felicia Hooton the silly ol' moo...

So months and months ago Fely and I started planning a trip to meet up in London to get her passport renewed. In order to get a good deal I bought my bus ticket as soon as we confirmed a date. We got so excited about the trip that we started counting down 4 weeks before the date, announcing it all over Facebook about the trip and sending each other silly texts that said "3 more weeks !!!", "2 more weeks!!" and then "One more week"...... and then on Monday before the trip, I heard the bad news that she wasn't feeling well. But being the real trooper that she is, she said, "It's okay, I am sure I will be well before Friday." And it sounded to me like even if she had to crawl her way to London, she would. So she texted me frequently to update me on her condition. The next day, she said in her text, "OOOoo I'm feeling much better, I'm sending my hubby to get my ticket, tell me what time you're arriving at Victoria." So it looked like the trip was set to go according to schedule, we were really excited and I was all geared up for Friday. And then Thursday came the horrible news that she's been diagnosed with the horrible pig flu. Her exact words -- The doctor just told me I've got swine sodding flu !!! That later turned out to be chest infection, which was no better than the pig flu. So in the midst of being sick and confined to bed rest, as well as being drugged with all sorts of medication, she said, "Oh I feel terrible, I must pay you back for your ticket" and I of course dismissed her and told her to concentrate on getting better.

She had since recovered and we even set a new date for our second attempt at our rendezvous. On Saturday, the postman arrived with a letter for me and the writing looked oddly familiar. I became quite suspicious that it might be from Fely and when I opened it and I was greeted by this really nice looking card.



Upon opening the card, I found this !!



True to her words, that silly moo had sent me a cheque with a note of apology !! And the best thing of all was that she had handmade the card herself !!



How sweet is that???

I was moaning to Steve about what a silly moo she is for sending me a cheque and he gave me a brilliant idea.

So I have decided not to cash the cheque and keep it together with the card as a special reminder of how funny our trip to London turned out to be. Haha.

Fely, thanks for being such a great and wonderful friend and may our friendship last as long as it can last :)

Hahahahahah!!!! You'd have done exactly the same thing for me if it was the other way round. I think there is a reason that you and I have been almost inseperable since matrix, god knows how many years ago that was. Same class in matrix, then B.ed, then Bognor, then that all those schools, and finally here in the UK, where we're both down the coast as well. Must be a reason, we just have to figure out what. Ok, October date is set. I am trying to get my passport renewed before then but it doesn't look like Nick could get away from work though, he's got his diary full. Maybe I won't be able to renew it till October anyway. Oh, and now that you've got your license, let's try meet up even if it is somewhere in the middle. Love you XXX

This is great! I read all your new blog entries and keep itching to leave comments but never could, then leaving comments on FB doesn't have the immediacy that this has. Fely, my pc's old but still trusty. I don't know how to use blogspot (yet)! Going to Bangkok this weekend, will try to learn soon

PengPeng彬彬 said...

ash: are they giving special lessons in Bangkok on using blogspot? :P

Doria : she's the baking queen, i'm the eating one, and cleaning up also la. haha. one day i shall visit her home and then I will take banyak banyak pictures and we will definitely BLOG IT !!!
