Depressed Darling

My darling B has been down for the past two days and I can't blame him. About two weeks back, he got a new toy, courtesy of his office - a brand new Blackberry! We both don't know much about this fancy handheld device, so B took his time in learning how to use it, while I ooohed and ahhhed whenever he discovered a new function LOL!

Last Thursday I received a text message from B saying he'll be having a working lunch somewhere. So it was almost 2 PM when I gave him my daily love call and the first thing he said was that he was upset! He did sound frantic and worried, so I quickly asked what's wrong and he sadly told me that he had lost his Blackberry! :(

What happened was B accidentally left his Blackberry at the place he had lunch! He only realised that about ten minutes after driving away and quickly rushed back, hoping to retrieve his Blackberry, safe and sound. Unfortunately for him and like most lost then stolen cases, his beloved brand new Blackberry was gone. The waiters claimed that they did not see anything at the table, so there was really nothing he could have done, poor B!! Now wouldn't you too be depressed if this happened to you?

He barely had it for two weeks and was just learning how to use his Blackberry and this had to happen! Not to mention the frustration of losing some important data inside and having to fork up almost RM2,000 to replace the missing one! And when B is down, Mariuca feels down too and that's no fun so I've been trying my best to cheer him up since that fateful afternoon.

for the past few nights, I've been giving him the freedom to watch all his favourite football shows instead of watching my sitcoms. Tonight is also football night and I even suggested buying him the Nexus21 TV Lifts for greater viewing pleasure! Earlier today, I made him a special lunch and planned to get him some yummy cup-cakes for tonight. Or maybe I'll make him the mug cake he loves so much. Alas nothing seemed to cheer up my darling B for I can clearly see the sadness in his eyes! :(

And that's when I figured a great solution to his depression - a nice long massage! See, B and I have this massage game where he and I will exchange massages for 30 minutes. I'll do his feet and legs and he does my hands and shoulders, which is usually where we need a massage most! What with him running around at the office and me busy typing away or dropping EC the whole day, we do look forward to this little game of ours. We always end up so relaxed albeit unfulfilled whenever our 30-min is up cause half an hour is never enough. No matter how long of a massage we give to one another, we just want more! By the way, we also have a nice comfy massage chair at home, but nothing beats a good old-fashion massage with human hands to knead away your stress and worry right? ;)

So when late afternoon came and B was still moping around the house, I quickly placed his cell phone in his hands, practically pushed him out the door, kissed him good-bye and told him to enjoy a nice long massage LOL! Hopefully he'll come home feeling better and more cheerful. It's been depressing for me too not seeing B's usually smiley face so I hope this massage will do the trick. If it does, then B will be in a good mood and if he's in a good mood, yours truly just might get a free massage instead of having to play the massage game to get me some back rub! ;)


Elara November 1, 2008 at 11:34 PM

Oh dear, I hope B is ok now. It's very hard to picture him not smiling. :( Hugs for both of you!!

Jackie November 2, 2008 at 1:27 AM

Oh my I can imagine how upset he is. I simply can't imagine you or him not being happy.

I am here with cup cakes too and some nice hot mocha coffee for both of you!!

Hugs also for both of you two!!:-)))

Mariuca November 2, 2008 at 1:46 AM

Oh thanks for being my first commenter here Debbs, MPG loves ya! :)

Sigh, still a bit depressi but lucky got football tonight to make him forget for a while. :):):)

Mariuca November 2, 2008 at 1:49 AM

Thank you Jackie! He was so miserable on that day, and is slowly cheering up again. Hopefully he'll forget abt it over this weekend.

The cupcakes and coffee will def help, love ya! :):):)

Poor Guy! No hope of finding that kind of toy.

In fact we were talking about how honest waiters are in Japan after our group study today by coincidence. You can leave behind stuff and it'll be there for you if you go back. Not accusing the waiters at the joint B was at but just an example of the different culture.

Only consolation I can give is that Liverpool are leading Spurs now by a goal but the game still has an hour or so more left.

Cheers B!!

Mariuca November 2, 2008 at 2:20 AM

WOW!! Is that really u GK??? ALAKAZAM ZAM SHAZAM ha ha!! Aiyo, miss u la GK!! *Genie Hugz*

Sigh, yeah la GK, fella still depressed I can tell. Some more sayang cause not even 2 weeks and it's gone forever now. :(

And yes, he's watching Liverpool fact been watching football since 9pm! I hope Liverpool wins, that ought to make him smile a little! :):):)

Anonymous,  November 2, 2008 at 2:29 AM

Yup it's me all right GP!! Miss ya too!! Genie Hugz!

I'm doing some research for an assignment so not watching the game...besides don't want to jinx them too! :)

I know how he feels...and of course hope Liverpool get a good result so that he'll be consoled a little! :)

Went down and tried Wendy's for dinner today....the last tiem I had it was in the US LOL The chili is really nice and I wanted to grab an extra bowl and save it for later...but I had the 3/4 ponder was was stuffed really good hehe Planning on going back for more though. Jaya 1 is a neat place...first time I been there!

Mariuca November 2, 2008 at 2:34 AM

YAY! The genies are together here, for tonight at least. That calls for another genie hug! :):):)

Thanks GK, am just doing my best to cheer him up here so I'm rooting for Liverpool too woo hoo! :)

Eh Jaya One is where my friend's cake store is la!! Cake Connection and that time I visited her, I too had Wendy's ha ha ha!!

I had the baked potato but now that u said the chilli is nice, I must try that too! Been ages since we discussed food yeah?

Anonymous,  November 2, 2008 at 2:40 AM

Yup! It's been too long since we last had a good "Genie" chat!

Yes, I remembered your friend's shop but couldn't find it...the layout of the place is a little strange for a first timer. I actually had to ask the Nando's staff where Wendy's was LOL and they asked me to go thru their place to get there...awful decent of them. :)

They have an interesting looking grilled chicken salad that wifey wants to try and me....I just wanna get more chilli hehe

Mariuca November 2, 2008 at 2:46 AM

GK!! U are a mind reader indeed! Just today I mentioned ur name, and here u are appearing in my chat box tonight! And don worry, it was nothing bad he he! :)

And I can't believe u're not watching Liverpool playing tonight. So hardworking la GK!

Oh her shop is on the 1st floor and yes, me too had a difficult time finding her shop. But then again, my sense of direction is terrible lol!

Mmmmmm that chilli is bugging me now! Thank goodness I have some ayamas chic pie to tide me over tonight! :)

Anonymous,  November 2, 2008 at 2:49 AM

I too have a terrible sense of direction LOL Luckily wifey is pretty good with that...but then again I hardly listen too hehe

Mmmmmchicken you're making me hungry...oh one thing about the you should be able to take it LOL

Wait did you say you mentioned my name...hmmm now why would you me talking about me...if it were not bad, that is hehe

Mariuca November 2, 2008 at 3:00 AM

Ha ha ha if it's mild, then u la should be able to take it easily LOL!! Today I cooked soto and of coz must have the chili padi blend with kicap, aiyo... I tell spicy!! B was practically crying poor thing ha ha! :)

Really GK, I just mentioned ur name in reference to a particular conversation I was having with another friend. Maybe it's time for that genie chat soon eh? ;)

Anonymous,  November 2, 2008 at 3:14 AM

Aiyooo...Spurs just drew level...

See Chili padi doesn't make me cry LOL I usually ask for a second bowl of chili padi when I eat my noodles hehe...

We can chat anytime ;) Genie King is always ready hehe

Mariuca November 2, 2008 at 3:16 AM

Eh GK, I said B yg almost cried, me I was ready for my third bowl oredi ha ha ha!!! :):):)

I heard u and ur buddy had some nasi kandar on Deepavali! Nasi kandar oso sounds nice right now lol! ;)

Anonymous,  November 2, 2008 at 3:26 AM

Oooppss sorry...eyes getting heavy LOL

Nasi kandar...on Deepavali with my buddy....I don't think so...your little bird got lines fact we didn't even eat fact we didn't even eat in a Nasi Kandar was breakfast at our usual restaurant who normally has open house on deepavali. That fellow must hav egone for nasi kandar without poor old me...:)

But nasi kandar does sound good...I went to Jln TAR a couple of weeks search of a Financial Calculator if you believe me...and ended up there because in MPH the thing costs 150 and in Mydin we were getting six for our friends too. Anyway...we stumbled upon the nasi kandar shop next to the carpet shops....supposed to be good...and it was oh so good....i like th ebeef of course...and the egg...oh and a raw uncut green chilli to nibble on...hehe

Anonymous,  November 2, 2008 at 3:30 AM

Aiyah....Liverpool lost....oh no!! What a waste!!!

Mariuca November 2, 2008 at 3:34 AM

Ha ha raw uncut chilli to nibble on it seems, you are the funniest la GK!! :)

Eh really, your buddy mentioned in one of his comments for me that u guys had nasi kandar, and it was free too. Maybe he meant free deepavali breakfast at a NK restaurant he he!

But too craving for some now that u've described it so vividly to me!! ;)

Mariuca November 2, 2008 at 3:35 AM

Oh yeah! B oso just popped into my office to sadly let me know that Liverpool lost! :(

Anonymous,  November 2, 2008 at 3:41 AM

HE DID! I wonder what he's been smoking lately LOL need to find that comment and read it because I certainly know that I didn't eat free NK...besides NK folks usually celebrate Raya not DV....maybe he went for Raya openhouse and got free NK with another friend LOL

Now I need to ask him about this!!

Yeah the NK was so good and they used prawn gravy too to make it a superb blend of mouthwatering goodness!! I hope I making you hungry....becaue I'm going to sleep now!! hehehe

The pest control guy is coming tomorrow and I have to "Bug" out early before he gets here so I need my beauty sleep or else I'll have bags under my eyes LOL

Also need to look for new glasses....getting old GP! :(

You have a nice night....err...morning hehe

Genie Hugzzzzzz

Mariuca November 2, 2008 at 3:45 AM

Ha ha maybe I read the comment wrongly? But tell ur buddy not to get angry with me yeah if I gave u the wrong info lol!! :)

You are making me damn hungry and u know I love my prawns, but that chic pie is calling me, so I'm good for now he he! :)

Have fun shopping for glasses GK, me off to watch some TV now. Nite nite and thanks so much for coming by today. I had a nice chat here with you, as always.

Laa... kesiannya B. I oso tumpang sedih. If it was me I would have cried my heart out at the shop. I'm sure one of those waiters took it, but it's tough when you have no proof ya.

What goes around, comes around. Whoever took the Blackberry, their hands will rot, I tell you! :)
