The one with the lovely gentleman...and a not so lovely one after

sigh guess what?

i have finally found the perfect man.

and his name is Mr. Darcy :) *swoons dreamily*

unfortunately (sigh) he will only exist in books and on screen. but i did spend a good 2 hours in the cinema drooling over how perfect he was. he sounded more chivalrous in the book but i guess actually being able to SEE what Mr. Darcy looks like sorta helped.

(if you havent already realised, i finally watched Pride and Prejudice)

also saw the preview for Narnia and Harry Potter 4 which are definite must watches for me at the end of the year.

anyway, after that me, gavin and girlie went to Chapelli's to have a very late dinner after the movie during which i learnt that guys can have two kinds of wedgies??? one's the normal kind of wedgie and hte other one's called a Melvin. (just outta curiosity do Melvins know that there's a wedgie called a Melvin?) and when i asked gav what a Melvin was, this is what he said:

'its when you know!!! ngor liap at one side!' accompanied with very visual hand gesticulations.

*none hokkien speakers, i dont know how to translate ngor liap for you without it sounding impossibly crude, for those who can understand mandarin it's 两里*

i proceed to stare at him somewhat blankly before getting his meaning and bursting into laughter while girlie slapped his arm and went 'GAVIN!' and he protested with a 'whaaat?! SHE ASKED!'

and i admit i did :P

it was all very educational but REALLY! any guy that subjects himself to the torture of wearing jocks (i shall refrain from calling them tighty whities) fully deserves getting Melvins.

I have been so enlightened. Now I know what to rub into the face of my friend, Melvin. >:)

"ngor" is Hokkien meh? I thought.. "neng" is Hokkien for 'two'?

tiff:: eh? i also tak sure leh. cause when we speak hokkien there's a mix of teochew in there so 'ngor' could be teochew instead?

comes from having one parent of hokkien descent and one of teochew. it makes us kids very confused :P

ke:: lol the last time i read it was like in year 11 but i have to say on screen mr. darcy looks a whole lot more drool-worthy :D

Ahaha same same. I'm Teochew-Hokkien too but I can't mix up the two since I'm more used to Hokkien ^^;
