because my bank account can no longer support my eating-out-and-playing-hard lifestyle, my entertainment options are now limited to the delicious Eric Moon..
.. and tagging along to free events, courtesy of S' popularity with chinese boys.
the most recent one was a BBQ at Bobbin Head, one of the national parks here. her friend M drove us a couple of hours to get there.. it was nice to get out into the countryside again! it has only been a month since Cairns and already i'm itching to go to New Zealand! (the first thing i'm gonna do when i receive my allowance is to book flights!)
it was a nice and sunny day to go out and meet new people. it was actually a company gathering of M's boss, who was 'promoting' all his single male employees.
some people might feel uncomfortable being somebody's plus-one to corporate events but maybe because my relationship experiences are terribly, horribly limited for someone my age, i have no qualms about it! i don't think a bunch about these things. when my friend in KL needs a partner when he's having dinner with his managers and their wives, he just calls with the offer of a free buffet and i'm sold.
the only thing i cannot tolerate is D.O.M.! (aka Dirty Old Men-- a term i learned from Aunt Penny!) i don't know why, but DOM like to hit on me on the streets! on the train! wherever!
and when i say old, i don't mean 10 years older (which is, by the way, the age difference between Eric Moon and i). it's a bit creepy when men older than my father get all gaahhh!!!-- i don't wanna think about it!
really feel like telling those DOM, 'dude, i'm younger than your youngest child! what are you, a paedo?'
when will handsome, dashing Eric Moon-types hit on me instead?!
