Had dinner with Jaclyn tonight at Good One BBQ House in Vic Park. I had a plate of roast pork with dry noodles and she had a combination roast with rice. She polished off her plate quickly and then began to eye the dishes that other ppl are having.
She patiently waited for me to finish my noodles (I eat slow) and then said, “Let’s ordered a plate of roast duck.” I said, “Aren’t you full?” She said, “Yeah but it looks sooo good. Don’t worry, we’d only get half a duck.” So we ordered that and finished that off as well.
She was so happy eating that plate of duck that it made me happy too. There’s something to be said about girls who relish their food. I think it’s sexy. It doesn’t hurt that she looks the way she does too. In fact other girls probably hate her for it, eating the way she does and still manages to look good.
Of course she doesn’t look like that all the time. But even when she’s not dolled up, she’s still good looking. Though like all girls, she went through a phase when she thought she needed to lose weight. Even then, she looked like this:

Tellingly she still picked a diet that will allow her to eat: The Atkins Diet. Heh.
She’s one of my friends who came back from HK. And turns out she’s changed her plans and will be here semi-permanently. However long that means, I’m glad to have her back in my immediate social circle for now.
In between gorging ourselves on the food, she updated me with her life in HK and her plans in Perth. We reminisce about past experiences, good and bad, and talked about relationships – ours and other ppl’s. We met up for only two hours tonight and it really does not feel like I haven’t seen her for an entire year.
She’s the one whom I talked about in my post, “Low Maintenance Friends“. I have quite a few friends who are just as low maintenance. Friends that I never lose a step with no matter how long or how far apart we are.
Friendships like these are priceless. I feel complete because of them. That plus my family, and the simple pleasures in life are my formula for happiness.
So reach out and get in touch with that lost long friend of yours. It’s worth it. 🙂
