Saturday Nite Out - Tun Fatimah Style

So, it looks like I will be attending the STF old gals fund raising dinner this Saturday night after all. The Clients whose tender I am working on has decided to give us some space to breathe by giving us a two-week extension and I finally found myself without a good excuse not to go. Plus, as I mentioned before, it’s time this Srikandi awake from her slumber and contribute to the school by gracing the event with her presence. Aye?

Actually, I am a bit nervous; you know meeting old friends or old seniors (who may just think they can still stick three fingers down my throat while getting me to sing DO RE MI FA SO LA TI DO). What if I don’t know what to say? You know how flat-toned and bored I can look without even intending to be so! It just gives people the wrong ideas! No, to those old-gals reading this, please know that I am interested in what you say..it’s just that I just look like this! My apologies in advance sweethearts! Plus, there are issues of what to wear and more importantly, what to wear to make me look slim plus how to put up my hair and what shoes will go with what etc..etc..And people, tell me, how do you lose like 10 kilos in 3 days???

I invited N, but he decided to not go with me. He didn’t want to deal with Old Gal crap I suppose. Which I totally understand. I mean, no man I know so far is willing to endure an all girl school reunion without falling asleep in between or on the other extreme being scared out of his skin with the shrieks and screams that we will be displaying in delight or at shock and/or horror at meeting old friends. Without a gun stuck at his head, of course! So, I am actually grateful that he actually understood that my invite to him was just a matter of formality, and that I didn’t really want him to attend cos if he did, I wouldn't be able to be the "Old Gal" me eh?? *naughty winks* Heh! Which is why when he said, “No.” I just smiled wide, and said a quick “OK!” No follow-up or persuasion of any form shall be pursued in any way.

I am glad though that I will be there with my best pals from the old dorm; Linda and Jaja. Just with them there; I am guaranteed an awesome time. And at least Jaja and Linda shall even out the flat-toned-ness aura around me. They’re such wonderfully high-pitched shrieky pals. I love them to tiny little bits! Nevermind the shock and horror of meeting whoever-whoever, if there are any I should be shocked with lah. I am almost certain that I shall be “pleasantly” shocked. The Srikandis never fail to delight me most of the time, anyway.

So, we will be at the Sunway Lagoon Resort Hotel this Saturday night, in full traditional galore. As nervous as I am, I’m actually quite quite excited over the prospect of this. I just know this will be fun. Well, it’d better be! In the meantime, there’s lots to do. I mean shrinking your legs, bums and tums has got to be a full time job eh? And in three days at that? Wish me luck!

D!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1 I am so excited for you. C'mon kiddo you will shock them pleasantly. Look at yourself...what a terrific person you have become. No need for any sort of makeovers for you. I'll (We'll) take you Just the way you are~~``````

Don't go changing, to try and please others
Just know that you never let anyone down
Don't imagine you're too fat or boring
Don't let them shave your legs and arms
I and other bloggers wouldn't leave you in times of trouble
We never could have come this far if we were to grumble
We take your sublte charm and the flat-tonerism
And we (sure as hell) will take you just the way you are~~~`

(Words ONLY slightly edited from Billy J's song - Just The Way You Are) :)

takpe D...

u know that u can always hide behind me... there's ample space there, enough for 2 anedra's... + Jaja too.. tapi Jaja still stick thin ke?

i am still at wit's end with my tender bid which will close on the 6th... takde extension punya. But I am giving myself a holiday the whole of saturday to shop for a baju that might fit and to do the pompuan stuff like primping myself enough to keep my self confidence that I look like the rest of the normal people... Ok i have just lost myself... maybe tomorrow i'll start making sense...

BTW everytime u bring up the 3 jari issue tu... i asyik nak tercekik aje... guess u got ur revenge after all.. so kosong - kosong ekk???

kalu terasa kurus nak pakai cheongsam slitted up the punggoque... kalu terasa gemoque pakai saree... kalau tarasa tak tersempat nak beli apa-apa... alamat pakai kain batek ... kasi kemban ala PGL... whaddya think?

wear stripes!!! Put the hair up high in a tight tight bun and wear heels-on-platform. The operating word here is to look CYLINDRICAL. Optic illusion so you must always stand beside spheres. Round tables, good. Long tables avoid. Dont go near tiang tiang also. Dont use chopsticks either!

Break a leg! You've read enough books on how to look good as it is, so you'd better break both legs.

When old gals come together - we are 17 all over again and trust me no one will notice the 10 kgs cos they will be busy gabbing and catching up on anything & everything under the sun.

Ours is on the 20th of May at Shangri-La and its themed the 70s. Got to look for an Afro wig!

Enjoy the fun time and hang loose!
