The Sushi Girl

It was Frank's birthday on the 27th of June where we were supposed to have dinner together and drinks thereafter. Instead, I was called away on a business trip that was too far away for me to get back in time to join the rest of the gang for dinner.

Anyway, something happened that night which prompted the gang rushing to tell me all about it first thing in the morning.

However, before I carry on, I must forewarn that what I am about to write may be deemed as objectifying women and as such, if you are the type who would be offended. Read no further.

By proceeding, you waive all rights to kpkb about moral issues, blah blah blah.

Now, there is this sushi place where we are regulars and it just so happened that in there, a waitress by the name of Hong, has a MEGA crush on Frank. Frank is the new guy who recently moved to our area from Ta1wan. Given that he is around our age, we got along well with each other and hang out together quite often.
As far as I know, the crush has been quite some time already and Frank and Hong have been talking to each other on the phone and sms-ing each other.

Now the bunch of us are known to be quite jee siao and knowing the Hong has this big crush on Frank, we purposely arranged to have the birthday dinner there. All of them were in the mood for "dinner theatre" that night.

"We almost brought popcorn to the sushi restaurant. Got show to see mah!"

Yah, as friends, we are all bastards.

The 7 of them (sans me) arrived at the sushi restaurant when they realised that it was Hong's off-day. They quickly called her on her mobile (from Frank's mobile) and told her to come to the restaurant to celebrate Frank's birthday. Hong quickly agreed (no surprises there) to come but told them to start ahead without her as she need to go shopping for a birthday gift.

So the gang started dinner and they ordered 2 flasks of Sake (I am guessing about 300ml each) and naturally as the birthday boy, Frank was the target of some drink goading. As it turned out, Frank finished a flasks by himself while the rest split the balance which isn't much to begin with.

I must say that as far as drinking is concerned, Frank failed miserably as a man for by the time he finished the flask of Sake (20% alcohol), our friend a bit seh liao......

Pause for a cause as I fill in a little more background information here. Frank has a girlfriend in Ta1wan and by the local moral yardstick, he is a faithful saint. He is aware that Hong had the hots for him but he is kinda stupid to continue to be the nice-we-are-just-friends-kinda-guy and it drove the love-stricken Hong wild, misinterpreting all the wrong signals. Now Frank is your typical SNAG and although SNAG is passé in our part of the world, it is certain all the rage here. To the Uber Male like me, I would regard the SNAG as a bladdy sissyboy but who am I to judge?
Anyway, Hong showed up right at the time when the cake was about to be cut and after settling the dinner bill, off they went to KTV to sing K and carry on drinking. Frank was gone-ded by the first whisky while Hong valiantly attempted to protect Frank by helping to drink.

That didn't last too long either as by the second whisky, the alcohol hit Hong full in the face and she was starting to go hysterical. She starting bawling her eyes out. She cried that Frank didn't want to take her home* that night.

* At this juncture, I don't need to explain "take her home", do I?

They were all like "HELLO? Frank passed out already!! How to take you home?"

Frankly (no pun intended), they were all taken aback, while they knew of this crush, they didn't know it was so serious. The whole idea of asking her to come was to just playfully tease the "couple". No one expected this to be likened to that of stepping on a land mine.

The party was cut short when the bawling sushi girl got a bit violent before the grand finale of puking all over herself.

The obvious solution is to book a hotel room above the KTV for the night and throw them both inside.

As I was told, everybody reached home before midnight. It was a short party.

What happened thereafter? Did they do it? Who makaned who?

Until I have a chance to meet Frank again, this entry shall be adjourned.
Oh yes, I don't think I will be going to the sushi restaurant any time soon.

Anyway, I don't see the need to defend who is older coz as long as both of us are younger than Lao Auntie. That's good enough for us.
