Dedicated to Huiwen

Dear blog visitor (I say this because I don't think addressing you all as readers would be appropriate as you probably aren't),

First of all, thank you for clicking on my so amateurish-done-skyscraper-size-static-non-flashy banner done on Microsoft paint that I was too cheap to put on a normal paid Nuffnang ad unit but instead dumped it onto the so very few charity ad units in Singapore. (Probably get screwed for this as it takes the meaning of charity away from these ad units) I know the ad creative could be so much better but due to my limited drawing skills, it ain't gonna happen.

Next, if you actually got here from a Churpchurp campaign (well at least I paid for something), and you have no idea what Nuffnang banner ad unit I was talking about, here you go, for your reference:

Now this blog post is actually dedicated to Huiwen/the country manager of Nuffnang Singapore/my girlfriend for her birthday. I doubt she's reading this so if you'd be so kind to just tweet this post to her at @davienne, she might be able to catch this on her birthday today (Aug 13)

Just to tell you a little bit about her, for the benefit of you who are still wondering, who is Huiwen? She's runs the show at the Nuffnang Singapore office. I met her just about a year ago when I first joined Nuffnang Malaysia (Yes I know I'm not suppose to shit where I eat). Since this is my blog post I'd make it very skewed towards my benefit - I could not help but notice that she started showing some interest in me and so I made it easier for her and let it happen. (muahahahahahhaa....). End of story.

Ok seriously now, over the past year, even though we're staying in different countries, I guess we've somehow been seeing each other every few weeks or so. Learned a few things about her. She likes dogs. Well or so I think.

No that's not her dog Scruffy, nor is that my dog, Shasha. That's Mini, my friend Evelyn's dog when we went to her brother's house birthday party sometime last year. That was the only picture of a dog and her that I had.

Here she is trying to look hot,

I guess if I remember correctly, this picture was the process of her getting ready to look like how she looked like in the banner you clicked on. So, job well done to the person doing it. (I have no idea who it was)

We don't have much pictures together, as we both don't really carry cameras around except for our phone cameras which kinda suck. The theme parks make it easier on us that they help us take pictures during our ride so that we can buy them if we'd like them but I'm still too damn cheap to buy it so I basically took a picture of the picture that they were displaying for us to buy when we got off the ride.

(Huiwen, if you want a copy of this, let me know I'll send it to you for free!)

Dear Huiwen,

If you ever get to read this, (if you did, this means Churpchurp and Nuffnang banners really do work even with a super-duper-tiny-ass-freaking-small budget, I'm talking way below the minimum media buy) when this post goes live and you read it the time I think you would be reading it, I would be on the way down to Singapore to celebrate with you what's left of your birthday.

You've been amazing at everything, at how you handle your personal life, work life, friends, family, colleagues, gaming peeps, me, etc. You've also been extremely tolerant and have the patience to put up with the stupid shits I say or do. I can't say that I'm going to stop or reduce these stupid things, because I actually thoroughly enjoy being irritating! (Damn, how irritating is that? muahahahahahaha...). I know I drive you nuts.

Anyway, let's finish off the post with a nicer picture that I found. Something decent for both of us.

Happy Birthday dear!
