Of Birthdays and Virtual Realities

Finally. I feel that I can breathe again. Kinda nice to be missed. I am so touched.

It's my best friend's birthday today. Happy birthday V darling. I remember the first time we met. She was sitting in front of me, dozing off at the introductory lecture on our first day in law school. She's a hotshot lawyer now while I spend my working hours walking around in my socks and jammies. Still, she is the one person (apart from my sisters) who will genuinely tell me that my ass looked big in a particular dress, listen to my tirades and will tag along for my teh tarik highs, no questions asked.

She doesn't really know about this blog so won't get this greeting. I have so far tried to keep my virtual life distinct from the real one. But sometimes I wonder which is which. My so-called 'real' life is mired in so much angst. Jane Sunshine keeps my sanity intact in such instances. Last night for example, Jane Sunshine emerged and insisted that I skive. You see, three lovelies had called with an impromptu invitation that she join them for Malaysian food at Mawar, fabulous company included of course. The sambal and laughters galore made her feel all warm and fuzzy to be sure.

It's a real treat to see you back here, girl. Really, it is. :)

Happy birthday to the good friend that makes Jane Sunshine happy in her real life!!

Heard from a lil' bird that you're doing a "long-haul" soon? Got time for an Ikea lunch (or a Sin Seng Nam - whatever your desire!!)? *winks*

Hi Jane, good to see you're back online. Have missed reading you. Have I told you that I enjoy your blog immensely? I do, you know.

Jane Sunshine said...

Blabs: I miss you loads sweetheart. The lil' bird is quite right. Yes, yes, we must arrange something somewhere. It's very rushed cause I've got work-related things to do: ppl to meet and papers to give but will email you and we'll do something.

Marita: Oh my, I am oh so flattered! Especially cause your blog is tres cool and your philosophy bowls me over says she who is member of Marita admiration society.

jane, ewoka nd i discovered a pancake house in Holborn - this is another must where we can drag jane sunshine to chill out. This can be easily achieved with a large piece of pancake, with generous spread of chococate spread, pieces of sweer banana, sprinkling of nuts and three scoops of ice cream! I dont think jane can resist this. I think 29th evening will be just fine.

Jane Sunshine said...

Yumm...yumm...yummmmmmm...I will be there for sure. See you girls.

Lydia Teh said...
