Meeting Kenny, Pierre and Lay See

Kenny was in town so I met up with him last weekend in Pavilion.

It just dawned on me that day that I've known and been working with Kenny for 2... coming 3 years now. That flew by really quick for me.

A lot of people ask me what Kenny Sia is like in person and sometimes I feel the rumours that go around just don't do justice to the person. Honestly before I met Kenny I had heard my fair share of 'not-so-nice' things about him. You had everything nasty anyone could say about him in the list. But here's an honest account of what he's like.

He's humble (yes... HUMBLE... the opposite of arrogant) and while I think he separates personal and business issues very well, he tends to very often considers how people on the "other side" feel or are whenever he does anything. He's easy to get along with. Simple and generous as well with both his friends and business partners. And I am pretty sure that of the 10 people out there who talk bad about him, 9.5 of them would change their minds if they had a chance to sit down with him over lunch to really get to know him.

Oh and if you're thinking that maybe he's just nice to me because I work at Nuffnang you're wrong again. He was like this to me even when Nuffnang just started and I had nothing. Even at a time when he knew I needed his support/help most, he made sure of it that he never took advantage of me.

One thing that people say about him is true though... he's often surrounded by pretty girls 

but heck like that's his fault!!!

Anyway, after lunch with Kenny I dropped Princess to go shopping with Suet and Jia Meei in Bangsar. Then I headed home to meet Pierre to do some serious business. While the girls had some shopping to do, the boys had some serious business to take care of.

We had lots of aliens to kill and a world to save.

After saving the world Pierre decided that it was time to celebrate.

So he brought his wife Lay See, Princess and I to Jake's in Starhill for a wonderful steak dinner. When I say wonderful... I mean... "DID I JUST DIE AND GO TO HEAVEN" kind of wonderful. Allow me to illustrate my meal that night.

It was so good I felt so bad having to shit it out the next day. 

Funny thing is, one of our new Nuffies in Singapore was apparently from Pierre's school in Malacca. She told us that Pierre and Lay See used to be the most popular couple in school because well... both were good looking, from well-to-do families, smart and uhmm... tall or something. You know, the Malaccan equivalent of the head of the football team dating the head of the cheerleading team.

I guess that holds true even up till today. I mean look at them, compared to Princess and I.

They're both tall, dress well, carry themselves with class and even when they laugh they do it with "class".

As compared to Princess and I who dress like a bunch of school kids, short (or fat) and roll around like beavers when we laugh.

*sigh*

We will never be that "it" couple.

Magnolia said...

Many a times I think Kenny has been misunderstood by many. I always enjoy reading his blog as much as I enjoy reading yours.

It's so nice of you to speak up for him.

Btw, you and Princess are already the 'IT' couple. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.. :)

kevinpnp said...

Thanks for comforting me man. But I know for a guy, it's still short but long. Haha...

Cindy Khor said...

it depends on how you look at "it" but to me, i do think that the "it" couple represents 2 loving couple who are comfortable to be with each other and brings out the best quality in each other... and i do think that you and aud fufill the above requirement...

yzhuhuong said...

i agree with cindy :) "it" doesnt really mean being hot, tall or rich. it's the love boss stewie.

Boss Stewie said...

kevin: i don't think you need to worry so much about your height. it's who you are :)

cindy: awww.. thank you ... knowing that is even better than being the "it" couple

yzhu: thank you :) hehe

princessladyjane said...

Yeah, totally agree with you regarding Kenny... He really cares too much about how other people feel about him...

and can see lor.. because of that, he turns so stressful...

Well, Tim... u and Audrey look very matching couple... like u said... "As compared to Princess and I who dress like a bunch of school kids, short (or fat) and roll around like beavers when we laugh". ----> very matching wat! HAhahahahahhaaaa.....

Elaynne said...

Boss!!!!

You got your facts wrongly!!

kenwooi said...

haha nice! =D

p/s: can i tag along the next time you meet kenny? i really wanna meet him too! =)

Vy said...

I'm sure Kenny is a nice guy...I reckon the rumours are from people who didn't know him better or they are just JEALOUS...You and Princess look cute together...You don't need people's approval to be the "IT" couple...As long as you both love each other, that's all it is...

Siao Wen said...

Lay See is the FLOWER of CTG! and i agree that they are very compatible!!
