why did you get married?

I woke up late last Saturday morning to the smell of fresh pastries and hot brewed coffee courtesy of my husband. We then spent a couple of hours just rolling in bed and laughing while reading about Chinese Wives Complaints About Their Husbands on You should read it, it’s funny:

Well, I’m a Chinese girl, so it’s kinda funny to me because some of the less harmful husband traits remind me of my dad, LOL.

By the time 3.30pm came about, we washed up and got dressed for church. Except that we got there late due to an important last minute phone call, and there was no parking. So we ditched church and went to MidValley instead.

After having an unexpectedly fun time watching Pacific Rim, we then shared risotto and scallop soup for dinner while discussing why Jaegers couldn’t be fitted with swords or large weaponry for long-range combat, because, you know, obviously Jaegers suck in hand-to-hand combat. Our conclusion is that based on the size of the Gaijus, the monster’s bone density must be as hard (or even harder) than diamonds, which would mean that weapons like swords would only break upon impact with the Gaiju surface area. Also, a sword or pole large enough to be held by a Jaeger would be brittle or downright impossible to store or hold. Wewo contends that a spear-like object would be good, and we both agree that the Jaeger should have been spiky like a porcupine so it would be harder to penetrate.

We then shopped for kick boxing shorts, because we also do kick boxing classes together twice a week.

What to do When Your Car Breaks Down in Mid Valley Megamall

Wewo then suggested dropping by the card game shop as well because he had the sudden interest of investing in card games. We picked one fantasy-based one that didn’t look too hard to play. It’s 10pm by the time we head to the car park, only to realize that the car battery had flat out DIED. I must say that the Mid Valley security car park management team is AWESOME.

All we had to do is press the button at the HELP pillar and there was an instant reply. Fifteen minutes later, the security head and guard came by with jump start cables for our car and a nice dude in a HONDA JAZZ helped to restart our car. Too bad the battery was seriously dead. Sigh. So we made a report, left our car parked in Mid Valley and went home in a taxi.

Nice security guard uncles helping us park the car manually at 1030pm. (^_^) Thank you!!! 

We then had a nice hot bath, had chamomile tea and played with our new board game until 2am.

We must have had a lot of fun the day before because we slept in and only woke up at 11am. We then drive back to Mid Valley at 12-ish to pick up Wewo’s dead car, only to realize that WE need to call our own mechanic to fix the car. Aw, but that wasn’t what the night guard said the night before...

So before we did anything else, we decided that Sunday had to be celebrated with a nice hearty breakfast. Off to Paddington Pancakes we go for good service, sweet pancakes and black coffee!

Sunday's breakfast

Anyway, we then came back again in the evening with a mechanic in tow (there’s a mechanic that’s open on Sundays just opposite our house, God bless us) and managed to change the entire car battery. We then head back to the security office in P2 to report that the problem has been solved and could now drive our resurrected car home. Yay! And that is the story of how Wewo parked his car in Mid Valley Megamall overnight for only RM3.

I come home and pass out for a few hours while Wewo sits by my side, reading his Chinese novel. At around 8pm, I call up KFC delivery and we eat hot, juicy fried chicken by our bed while watching the latest episodes of Shingeki No Kyojin (Attack on Titans) from the laptop.

I then pause the anime to inform my husband that he is my best friend, because no one else can understand the art of wearing a pretty dress, eating fried chicken by the bed and watching anime on a Sunday night, like it is the most natural thing to do. My husband agrees and then wants to know if I ever made out with any of my other best friends. We then snuggle and get back to the anime action.

After that, we discuss about the different strategies of handling 4-feet, 5-feet, 15-feet tall titans in comparison to Gaijus, who are a hundred times larger.

After anime, Wewo spends some time meticulously ironing his work shirts while we watch one episode of Running Man on the DVD player. I write, research and prepare my work for the week ahead as well. Oscar and Poppy stretch their little furry bodies during this time as we prepare for another happy week ahead.

And this is why I married him.
