I'm still enjoying every bit of that ORD mood before the next phase of my life takes full steam.
Although there ARE things to handle (it's not like I'm doing nothing or need only to work 9 afternoons in a month..lol) , I relish the fact that I do not have to wake up to "office" hours and that when i have an evening gig, I can have a nap first. I used to be allowed to leave office only at 3 to 4pm when I have an evening gig and even after that I will receive endless calls from office to handle, solve things or give advice.. I don't know, I never used to detest it, maybe now I just need to slow down..I hope not!
Anyway last night while I was at a bar waiting for a friend, a 40-ish ang mo (caucasion) pilot, let's call him Andy (so he claimed was his profession) tried to pick me up. What surprised me was I was completely unembellished--no powder, no eye-liner nor lip gloss. I had on comfy t-shirt, sweat pants and slippers and I was quietly sitting by the bar reading The Newpaper alone. Andy said he hails from Cape Town and has been spending his last 5 years in Mauritius, and has now chosen to settle in Singapore and wishes to find someone here where he can start a family with, and all these while looking deep and longingly into my eyes. Ah Li, the friendly and ever protective trishaw-rider friend of mine who frequents picking up tourist in this area spotted me being "harrassed" & attempted to rescue the "damsel-in-not-so-much-distress". Li intruded and told the Andy off. Li said "Oi! This one (pointing at me) cannot touch. You want girls I take you other place....very nice one"...hahaha, Ah Li! I gesticulated to Ah Li that I can handle it. Not convined, Li offered to take me away on his trishaw so that I can free myself, but I thanked Li for the sweet offer and assured him that I'd be ok.
In the end, I managed to wriggle myself out of it nicely and amicably. When I got back into reading my Newpaper & continued to wait for friend, I thought to myself "maybe it's not a bad idea at this phase of my life to be a Pilot's wife, afterall have no job, no responsibilties, no nothing, and I haven't seen the world!" Ah well, haha!
Ok, I shall take a nap now before tonight's gig
