Just today Princess and I were at GreenBelt for dinner. GreenBelt is this really nice development in Manila with loads of restaurants, bars and shopping. 

I don't know how to compare it with anything we have back in KL because we don't have anything like that but if I were to loosely do a comparison, I'd say GreenBelt is something like Solaris in Mont Kiara but like 10 times bigger and nicer.

They're just so many things to eat there. Persian, Filipino, Western, Chinese and all sorts of different cuisines, but Princess had to pick the type she always does: Japanese.

So we ended up eating at this restaurant called Haiku.

I don't know if anyone of you have ever seen Princess and I together alone but we tend to do really stupid things. What made matters worse in this particular case was that she insisted I sat right next to her on the table rather than across her.

There was a big group of nice locals sitting across us. They were all talking and laughing loudly, they looked like they were having fun.

I turned to Princess to say something about the group when, wet from the tea I had just drank I accidentally spit a few drops of saliva on to her face. 

She stared at me then she immediately said
"PRIVATE! PEEL THE POTATOES!!!", and stressing each P and T sound as loud as possible to spit as much saliva as possible on to my face.

Then she burst out in laughter.

The line "PRIVATE! PEEL THE POTATOES" was a joke we always made between ourselves whenever we spit on each other while talking. It's a reference to an episode of Friends. (the episode where Joey was acting in this WW2 Drama and had trouble focusing because his co-actor kept spitting on his face).

Anyway, with Princess' royal saliva in my eyes I retaliated.

I shouted back at her spitting back as much saliva as possible on to her face.

We were both laughing very hard in the process but while it was something we always found funny, Princess is competitive.

So she struck back at me one more time.

This time she didn't bother with any lines. 

She just said
"PAH!!!", unleashing a gush of air into my face and a barrage of saliva drops.

It was after we had both recovered from wiping saliva off our faces that we realized the entire restaurant including the very happy group of locals sitting opposite us had gone totally quiet.

Everybody had turned to look at us trying to figure out how a guy and a very small girl was making so much noise.

We both looked back at everyone else, gave a nervous laughter each and looked back down at our food.

After a moment of silence had passed, Princess managed to control her giggle for a few seconds to say to me
"I think everyone must think we are really childish."

I agreed. We quickly finished up our food and left the restaurant to walk on to the sidewalk of the trendy GreenBelt.

Project 365: Day 22, 8th March 2009

Just right after we were out of the restaurant we started spitting on each others' faces again. This time with different lines that we could think of.

"I PITY THE FOOL"... I said while spitting on her.

Then she went

and I removed my glasses to wipe off all the drops of saliva that flew on to it.

This process went back and forth for a while but I surrendered when she came up with the line

I nearly drowned.

haha..this is so hilarious... normally my and my bf won't come up with lines to spit at each other, we either do it the straight forward way (just "pui" at one another) or just go to the kitchen and splash water at each other

Boss Stewie said...
