I think he looks very handsome here ~ alas, he deserves a special mention today.
How did we meet? You may wonder.

Before I met him, my love life was zilch. I was single for about a year, after breaking up from a previous boyfriend who married someone else without even telling me (he was such a jerk!). I was bumping around looking for love but the prospect was slim. Until one day, on my way to work, I heard on the radio about internet love ~ how people meet their life partner on the internet. Now, this is interesting, I thought. I've never tried cyber-dating or online chatting before, but I thought why not give it a try. I've got nothing to lose, anyway.
So I logged on the internet and searched for "friendship". The results were a long list of online dating sites. I chose one, http://www.oneandonly.com/ , and the rest is history.
It was quite interesting at first, exchanging e-mails with people whom you think have common grounds with you. I got to know several guys both local & abroad, but one got on pretty serious with me. Not MrNordin (not yet). His name was An**ony, he lived in PJ. He called me CatWoman.
I think we hit it off like a house on fire because we shared similar passion for cats. He was such a "gentle"man... We exchanged e-mails very frequently and I so looked forward to receiving his e-mails everyday. It was going on for about a week or so, when he told me he had to go to New Zealand for a couple of days for a business trip. I was devastated. I thought surely I would miss him! I was nuts!
Madam Tai Tai, remember that night when he called me from the airport? I was at your house ~ CRYING! Entah apa2, kan? I didn't even know the guy and I felt as if he was already a part of me! He promised to send me "something" from NZ and if everything went well, we would meet up upon his return. Yeay! I couldn't wait! From his description over the phone, I thought he might have looked like Hrithik Roshan.
Four days after he left, the "something" did arrive. It was a HUGE bouquet of ROSES! I think there were 200 stalks or more, in various colours ! I've never received anything that big before, it was like "a bed of roses"! It was unbelieveable! Superwoman, you were there ! Remember we took turns to water the roses? Hee.. hee..
Anyway, the roses made me fall more deeply in love with this stranger. Some friends were a bit apprehensive, saying that he could be a sex maniac or something, trying to take advantage of desperate lonely women like me. "Who would be so stupid to send a huge bouquet of flowers to someone he's never even met before?!" Well, he's got a point, but I don't care. I got my flowers ! And I still want to meet him
So, the day came when we agreed to meet. I was so excited and nervous at the same time. I had my hair washed and blown, and put on my little black dress for the date. I thought I looked smashing!
I arrived first at the venue, and waited for him to come. At 8pm sharp, I saw a car passing by. It was a bit dark, so I couldn't really make up how he looked like. But I knew it was him from the way he described the car. I just stood there, and waited. Then, I heard him calling my name, "CatWoman!" I looked up and saw him waving at me. I waved back and started walking towards his car. Nervous! Should I stay or should I go??
Slowly, I walked up to his car. But upon closer inspection.......
"Alamak.... ini bukan macam Hrithik Roshan! More like Herman Tino daaa.... !!"
