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.
We will never be that "it" couple.
