The 10th of October 2013 marks the 5th year that Shorty and I have been a couple. Actually for those of you who don’t already know, we don’t really know exactly what date it was official between us since I never asked “Will you be my girlfriend?” or anything like that. We just started… well… being a couple. Hanging out with each other all the time and there wasn’t like a set date or anything. So what we ended up doing what just picking a date that we estimate was the date we got together. And that date was the 10th of October 2008.
I was away on business on our 5th anniversary, so I sent Shorty a message that night.
Shorty: So where we going fats?
Me: Heh… it’s the place that we had our first date.
Shorty: What? Like Ferringi Garden in Penang?
Me: No… that’s not our first proper date.
Shorty: That was!
Me: No it wasn’t.
Shorty: Well okay there was McDonalds before that but you said “proper” date.
Me: Yes… it’s this place called Champ’s in BSC.
Shorty: Where’s that?
Me: You don’t remember? Hmph…
Shorty: No I don’t remember and that’s because I’ve never been there.
Me: You have! On a date… with me.
Shorty: Are you sure you got the right girl and it wasn’t a date with one of your exes?
Me: Uhmmm… I think so.
Later that day… on the way to the dinner place.
Shorty: So are you sure you got the right girl?
Me: Well I better be… or it’s not going to end up pretty for me right?
At Bangsar Shopping Center
Shorty: Oh I remember this place…
Me: Except that I think it’s called Monte’s now.
Shorty: Hey.. but that wasn’t our first date. I mean it was.. but we were just going out as friends then.
Me: That’s what you think…
Shorty: Ohhh.. sneaky huh this Fatty.. already had a plan to court me before eh…
Me: Yes hehehehe.
Shorty: I remember this place. We took a picture here.. and you were wearing a red shirt. And you were always bringing a camera around with you so that you can take pictures and blog about it. Enthusiastic blogger huh.. taking pictures of food and all also last time.
Shorty: Now you don’t do that anymore because we all just carry around camera phones. Ahh how technology has changed in the past 5 years…
Me: You mean… Ahh how my enthusiasm for taking food pictures have changed.
Shorty: Haha yah yah.
Me: Ok lets get a waiter to take a picture of us again now. 5 years on… at the same restaurant.
Me: Happy Anniversary Shorts.
Shorty: Happy Anniversary Fats.
