Brought some of the Nuffies to Lafite in Shangri-la for dinner. It was a reward dinner for some good work they did. At the end of it I got the bill:
Waitress: Excuse me sir do you have a HSBC credit card?
Me: Nope. Why ah?
Waitress: If you have a HSBC credit card you get 30% discount.
Me: WOW that’s a lot.
Shorty: I GOT I GOT! *takes out her credit card and gives to waitress*
Waitress: Thank you *walks away*
Me: Ok Shorty you pay first I pay you back.
Me: What’s your credit card limit?
Shorty: I don’t know. Think it’s about RM500, but should be ok lah. Why? How much is the bill?
Shorty: Ohh… boy this is going to be embarrassing.
Me: The waitress is going to come back with a rejected card and we’re all going to have to put on some aprons and do some dish washing behind.
Waitress walks back with the bill…
Shorty: Here it comes……. *covers head*
Waitress: Excuse me Sir. Sorry I just realized that the HSBC promotion expired. So there’s no more discount. Would you still like to use this card?
Me: Oh is it? Oh no no it’s okay.. I’ll use my own card.
Waitress: Certainly *takes card and walks away*
Shorty: Whew… dodged that one.
Shorty and I were at the Nuffnang screening of Oz The Great and Powerful. It was a premiere and we were watching it before it was released in the US. So we had to deposit our phones before we enter the cinema and collect them back again after the movie. You know, in case someone tried to record it and release a bootleg DVD version of it. The only slight inconvenience of this process is that there’s often a queue to collect the phone once the movie ends.
Towards the end of the movie
Me: psst Shorty. Should we leave now before everyone else… and skip the queue?
Shorty: But the movie never end yet.
Me: Ending soon already.
Shorty: How you know?
Me: Aiyah the bad guy all beaten already mah…
Shorty: Nvm wait first.
Credits start rolling.
Shorty: OK GOGOGO !!!
Me: OKOK LETS GO LETS GO… HUSTLE HUSTLE…. *rushes from the back of the cinema to the entrance.
Shorty: HAHAHAHA (somehow when we’re rushing to beat the queue, Shorty tends to laugh.. I don’t know whether it is a laugh of excitement or an evil laugh of having beat everyone else).
Me: *reaches exit of cinema* WE DID IT! WE’RE AHEAD OF EVERYONE… BWAHAHAHA!!
Shorty: Shit shit Fatty I left the things I bought at Topshop just now at our seat.
Shorty: I have to go get it.
Me: Fine I wait here for you.
Waits for Shorty while everyone else strolls past us
Shorty: Ok got it lets go.
Me: Well Shorty… we might as well have waited for everyone to leave just now then. We’re now the last people. Why don’t we sit down and have a coffee?
Shorty: Haha sorry sorry.
Me: Now we gonna have to line up like everyone else.
Shorty: Ok ok ok …
Me: It was a good plan Shorty… wonderfully executed too if I may add.
Me: Are the contents of the bag worth it? I was seriously considering leaving the bag behind.
Shorty: HAHA I thought about it too but I had to because our ticket for the phone collection is inside the bag.
We were pleasantly surprised later on to find out that we got through the line really quickly. GSC and the movie distributor did a wonderful job in very efficiently returning the phones. Great job guys! Oh and Oz was an entertaining one adventure.
