How I Met Your Father


  • This post is dedicated to Mika and Moon Cat

Your father and I met in 2007 at Laundry Bar, The Curve Damansara. It was the first time I laid my eyes on him as I sip my glass of white wine together with Aunty Su and Uncle Andrew.  From a far, he looks really cute with a charming smile. He was actually working there at that time and it happened to be the most happening place back then. It was always packed and getting a table is quite hard.

I was a little tipsy and I just told Aunty Su that, “ Hey, that guy over there is quite cute “ But I didn’t mean anything. I was just merely telling her my opinion. The next thing you know, she just raised and waived her hands to call him over. I don’t remember what she said, but all I remembered that I was blushing. Your father just stood there and welcomed us to Laundry Bar and told us his name. Marcus.

I was extremely shocked and feeling shy so we didn’t talk much after that. Just exchanging names and small talk.

Mommy was in Laundry Bar almost every weekend and your father was always busy working but he will come and talk to me every time I am there with my girlfriends. He even bought us some drinks and food too. I remembered my favourite dish was their seafood marinara paired with a glass of white wine.

Do you know that your father’s nick name was DJ Bak But Teh? He sometimes will spin the closing song which is always “ With Or Without You by U2 “ Once he even danced with mommy on the dance floor while playing this song. 

 Your father did asked me out once to Chinoz at KLCC but I was too lazy to drive from Sunway, so I kindly rejected him once. Little did I know, he would actually offered to drive me there. I knew this much later on. 

We only became closer once your father got promoted to open a new branch in Sunway Pyramid. Mommy was always there with my friends. Mostly Aunty Su and Aunty Brie. Sometimes mommy will also wait till 3am when your father finishes his work and we will have supper together in Asia cafe, SS15. Just getting to know each other better. 

So one fine night in Republic Bar, I challenged your father to down 3 oysters with lots of cut chillies and Tabasco sauce. I still remembered the look he gave me and he said he would gladly down it if I agree to go on a date with him. Obviously I said YES! Your father downed it like it was nothing! Because he actually love spicy food LOL, I felt like I got conned at that part. But it was all good. We then both set the date and went to this German restaurant in TTDI for dinner, followed by the arcade while waiting for our movie to start and I thought that was it! But NO, we actually continued by going for another makan session followed by a few rounds on foosball which I totally whopped his ass. It was such a fun night out but your father didn’t kiss me that night. I guess he was really shy! 

Then there was a music festival happening in Penang, if not mistaken it was the Rainforest Music Festival where musicians from all over the world came to showcase their country’s music instruments. Aunty Su was organising a trip and I asked your father if he wanted to go. He said sure and brought a friend a long which is Uncle Stanley. Your father almost didn’t make it there as Uncle Stanley didn’t answered his phone when they were supposed to leave from KL to Penang at night. Uncle Stanley finally answered the called after 26 missed calls. I kid you not. 

Penang was really fun as we met up with Aunty Sheena and Uncle David. We even went to the botanic gardens for a walk and stayed in Batu Ferringhi and one night your father and I had a nice walk by the beach till 6 am. It was the first time your father hold my hand. But still no kissing! I guess your father was just really really REALLY SHY!

The next day mommy had to go back to Taping while your father will be driving down to KL. We just talked on the phone for hours, at least 6 to 7 hours for a few days before mommy returns to the city. 

Once I got back, your father immediately asked me to be his girlfriend in Sunway Pyramid because he was working at that time. He took a 10 minute break and walked me away from the bar to asked mommy. There we shared our first kiss together as a couple. 

Three years later, he proposed.

Two years later, we had Mika 

Four years later, we have Moon Cat. Your brother kinda decided your nickname, not us.
