Soley soley…

Hands up if you know this song! LOL!!! I guess you will have to be pretty old like me if you know this one. It was by the group called Middle of the Road, the same one that sang “Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep“. Doesn’t ring the bell? Never mind…as somebody said the other day, it is never about the song, always about the food! It certainly looks like you people have got to know me pretty well by now, eh?

Well, it’s not exactly about food this time…but about Melissa’s good friend, Soleha, who celebrated her birthday recently. So they went out with some of their coursemates to this place in Wellington, New Zealand called Hell’s Pizza…

They had the Serpent…

The place is actually a New Zealand-based pizza chain.  I heard that if you order takeaway, the pizza will come in a coffin-shaped box. Eyewwww…..!!! The old people here with all their pantangs (taboos) would have fits if they see that.

Melissa bought her friend this as her birthday gift…

Birthday present

Gee! It looks very nice, doesn’t it? It comes in a very classy looking box too! Very Laura Ashley, don’t you think?

Here, you can see them having fun at Cuba Street – like posing for some kutu-rocker album cover. Muahahahahahaha!!!!

And hey! They have a road named after me in Wellington…

Arthur Street Wellington NZ

I know there’s one in Singapore too, somewhere in the Tanjong Katong area. I wonder if there are any others…

I know it’s kinda late, almost a month since the 18th of July but anyhow, a belated Happy Birthday greeting, Soleha, from uncle and auntie in Sibu and wishing you nothing but the very best in the year ahead. Cheers!
