30 THINGS IN 30 DAYS CHALLENGE: DAY 3
DAY 3 – YOUR IDEA OF THE PERFECT FIRST DATE.
Aaah the very first date. First dates are nerve wrecking, to say the least. Choosing clothes to wear and matching them with scarves and shoes, over analyzing on what should you talk about and where you should go to, trying to look your best the best way you know how. Hah such pressure! But I think the pressure is more on guys because girls will usually scrutinize every details; does he smell nice, does he pull the chair for her, does he pick her up on time, does he pay for everything and should it be awkward if you decide to go dutch, so on and so forth.
At the risk of sounding like mengampu suami, hehehe, I must say that my first date with him is my idea of a perfect first date. I’m not talking about the first time we went out for mihun sup as friends (I was seeing somebody else ketika itu hehehe). But I remember him opening the car door for me. And later chasing away a dog yang cuba datang dekat. Yeah that was fun, but I am referring to the first time we went on a real date, and it was an awesome one.
Nothing fancy, really. No candlelight dinner at restoran berputar followed by tasteful theater show, not that kind of awesome. He picked me up, we talked and laughed in the car. Went to Jusco Bukit Raja and watched Shaolin Soccer yang kelakar nak mati, sampai sekarang rasa kelakar. Had sizzling mee lunch at the food court (we were students lah!) Talked and laughed over glasses of drinks and decided we needed another movie so we watched Meet the Fockers. Had a good slapstick laugh. Come nighttime, we went to this one place in Bukit Raja for dinner and talked and laughed some more. Then he sent me home, right to my very doorstep.
Yes, that kind of awesome. The kind that gives you chance to get to know each other over good conversations and healthy dose of laughter. The kind yang terpetri dalam otak, to the point that I can still remember that he was wearing his black Padini shirt and I was wearing my brown ruffled blouse. The kind that when the date is over, you realize that, “Eh, I can’t wait to go out and talk and laugh with him again. I can do this everyday!”
So yes Hubby, our first date is my idea of the perfect first date. And I pray that we’ll get to enjoy thousands more dates for the rest of our lives. Now that I'm done mengampu, can you please buy me that Coach Kristin Hobo for my birthday? Kidding. Not.
