the story of a brown cake & an out of tune song.

M: this brown cake nice or not?
R: very nice but who is it for? M: for you!!!
Royston looked puzzled.

R: chee bye le but my birthday not today leh???!!!
M: I know but because you will be spending your birthday in
Pusan film festival, we organised surprise
birthday party for you.

Suddenly a group of 50 people,
a mixture of friends, strangers, gangsters, waitresses
joined in to sing a super out of tune
birthday song...

Royston smiled.
He had not smile for a long time.

    Eh Na Hia!!! I'm the 1st to leave a comment on your CB post hor? hehheheh, well, U know, on that fateful Saturday, I posted on my blog that I NEVER got Drunk in my whole freaking life b4 and guess what?!?! that very nite I got drunk! and U know why?!!? It's coz of U maann!!! U told me, I don't care maann..U leave your car here tonite, it's my bday, u gotta get drunk with me...

    U ask me do what, I do what...

    And so I got drunk, and so I puked and left my stamp at Lunar...

    And U know what? it's all worth it...As I told U in the sms that I sent u the next day...and u know why?!

    Just like U, we are not new in this freaking entertainment industry, a place where a lot of freaking stupid fake shit people prance about telling U that U're their best friend and shit...I've been in this industry for more than 10 years, have mixed not just in Singapore, but the China/HK/Taiwan/Malaysia scene. (Yeah...I know...not as big time as U, coz U conquered the Ang Moh world...but bo pian...I doin Cheena Music...Coz English music in Singapore is just about passion and I have to eat)

    In this last 10 years, I have also learnt to tell if someone is REAL, if someone who can be a friend, and if someone who will be there at times of need, whether thru psychic powers or watever...

    And U're one of them...So that's why I got drunk, for U man...It's been fun, whether it's at 881, Or L.I. or whereever...

    HUAT Ah...

    Hair Pee BDay...

    Have a BLAST at PUSSan...

    (How? Cock Enuf or not?! hehehehhhh) top

    am so sad... when I came out of the toilet, the birthday song was over... boo... hoo... (Never wait for me! Wo Da Ni Ah!)

    October 5, 1989 (so dat u r only 18, hee...), a star was borned.

    X'mas will never be the same without u. I will continue to pour u orange juice and green tea in times of need. I will continue to be your "girlfriend" in times of need. I will continue to offer my professional advice when I find it necessary to do so.

    Let the clock turn back to Aug 2006 when we tumbled and rolled in Mt Buller, let us soak forever in happiness and not face the harsh circumstances we need to face.

    I love ya! top

    sorry dear this took so long to get up here. This was my email to you on ur birthday.
    Dear Roy,

    It has been a fruitful yr for you. Cos of your preservance and belief, the fruits were sweet.

    My prayer for you is that you will continue to remain the kampung boy at heart: do not forget ur frs who quietly helped u to sow, do not forget e ppl who r quietly standing all e way behind u, sometimes covered by ur very "big shadow". In the midst of enjoying the limelight, attractions and temptations, my wish for you is that you will enjoy it in a positive manner and stand firm against temptations.

    Happy birthday.

    I watched 881 the 6th time in honour of ur bday today :)
