A little reunion

Met up with Yams and Denzie last night. Gakkers (recently married) joined us later at the Dubliner’s and showed us his wedding band. I actually did something that didn’t involve 1) Computers 2) Housework!

This afternoon I had tea with the ladies, and we were joined by Shin and Wen (who is getting married soon). Yams would be leaving Singapore for home tomorrow so I was really glad to see her again.

After chatting for a while, I realised my knowledge of pop culture has shrunk to sub-zero levels, after years of deliberately not watching TV (save for the news and sports channels) and listening to local radio (fake accents, and not enough of my favourite music).

Some shockers:

  • I didn’t know Harry Potter’s girlfriend was Chinese.
  • I haven’t watched a full espisode of Sex in the City (even while I was in the UK).
  • I don’t know the names of any actors in Buffy. Sarah Michelle-something?
  • I have no idea who’s been winning in any reality shows, after Survivor 2.

In my own lame defence, I have watched the William Hung video – only because they were showing it at a conference I attended recently.

But anyway. It was great catching up with people I hadn’t seen in years. It was probably my most exciting weekend so far this year.
