-definitely not her.

If you don’t know who I am, I won’t bother to even write the whole introduction thing again, so please click here to find out, if you must.

One thing though, I’m the Pineapple to the Mango, the A to the D, and the Daphne to the Charissa.

I’m here to hijack her blog because she did it earlier today on mine, so I’m just returning a favour – no updates whatsoever till our (hopefully) Penang date, because I’m super looking forward to it and I’d be HECK bummed if (God forbid) my parents don’t allow my travelling. After all, I’ll be having 2-3 weeks’ here’s to crossing my fingers till they (hopefully don’t) break.

Woman, here’s my first post (and counting) for 2012!

Mr. Saxobeat

Mango went clubbing with Pineapple. After 3 long years!
We should totally do this more often!


I believe we’re gonna do the whole Pineapple-Mango bloghack again after a year or so of not doing that. Yes, what used to be the norm became the foreign, and what do you know.. it became the norm, again.
Woman wrote in my blog about my being an integral part of her life and her growth and how much she doesn’t want to disappoint me above others :) This blogger of yours is now a different person as compared to when she was who she was in 2008.
When I first got to know her around late 2008 – the month that was November (and we decided to put the 5th as the date of our anniversary! see, who puts a date to remember their friendship? WE DO! :D); I NEVER thought that we’d have an almost-immediate connection. It was initially a DNA thing – we dubbed those names from Charlie’s Angels and I decided to avoid plagiarism by naming us DNA (childishness but hey you can’t NOT admit it’s cute! :p). And then the N in the DNA gave us quirky (and I mean, QUIRKY) last names to evade the plagiarism too; namely Bitchirina, Assyslia (which changed to Assylia to make it sound more classy AHEM :p), and then there’s…
Those who know me will know that I’d give them my trademark look upon hearing that name. Woman would probably go all HAHAHAHAHAHA by now, because there’re just too many stories to tell about this – like the classic high from shisha hence the knocking on a flower pot, the inport chaibo story..
Eh. :p
So the connection was made and eventually the N in the DNA decided to step out – reasons of which we don’t need to reiterate; so the DNA became D&A. And it remained that way eversince till that woman decided to add another name to us; Pineapple&Mango. I have NO idea why but I think it’s her orientation with colours, ‘cos she hates eating fruits AND vege. She’s gonna come in defense with naming her favourite fruits (definitely some pineapples and mangos included) but .. yeah, she generally hates anything healthy.
D&A in 2008 was, though strong; unstable.
Woman was unstable – stubborn, a little judgemental (with her ways of stating RELIGIOUS/VIRGIN right there at my blog, oh yeah that’s her 2008 wording :p), and she loved the high-and-mighty lifestyle. Sleep, eat, party, do whatever when you want, how you want it.
She’s also pretty unreasonable. We can just argue at any moment (not seriously) and then she’d go “YAH! I’M RANDOM WHAT! NO MEH?”…
..which leaves me silent, really. ‘Cos there’s just NO answer to it.
then in ’09, D&A went through a major guy drama. Or should I say, guys? And there was a particular drama that happened which made us go our separate ways. For a year or so – the strong-willed me cried a Charissa-cry (a la cry me a river), thinking that it was really goodbye for us then, because it hurt, just so much.
I just didn’t know how to go about the whole fallout, because it was just something so foreign to the both of us – it’s so weird because we never thought about it. And when it happened, neither of us knew how to handle it. I decided to keep quiet, while she spills it all over here, and I was the bad person.
And God reunited us once again in late ’10; giving this friendship a 2nd chance.
Talking to her again now, in 2011; woman is now a grown-up.
I see how she sees things, how she perceives people, takes in information, handles her issues..
..yeah, she’s more grown up now. :)
and proud of her doesn’t even describe one bit of how I feel about her this moment.
much love,
A :)


This is one woman that never fails to make my day seeing her.

The last time we met was … a VERY impromptu kidnapping-me-plan, mid-2010.

by the word kidnapping, you’d probably realize it’s not the blogger herself blogging.

Then last Wednesday, lo and behold we met again after quite a long hiatus. Y’all got to know that the hiatuses weren’t normal back in those days; but I guess we’re not exempted from the usual friendship norm : closer than ever and then life has its ways to part us – in this I mean the lifestyle, the timing, circumstances, etc; but what’s miraculous is that we can be out of touch for months or years on end, but meeting up again still meant sighing at the same time, laughing and stopping at the same time, saying the same words at the same time, looking at each other and we get it at the same time.. :p

And not forgetting STAH-GEE and SPAH-DEE.

So hello, reappearing again after so long, I bid a hacker’s welcome to MYSELF a.k.a the woman or whom she fruit-fectionally call as pineapple. I have no idea why she started the whole pineapple thing.. I’m not- okay, I AM yellow… ‘cos I’m Chinese, but I’m not.. acidic. Or sour. Or.. pokey.
Well you get my point. Even I don’t get her sometimes, so if you don’t, don’t fret :p
Bah woman youknowIloveyou.

I am the not-so-avid blogger that holds this site as my fort for my daily (or monthly or suddenly) musings, inspirations, updates, younameit. It used to be another site, and then we used to hack each others’ blogs a lot (don’t believe me? go check the pineapple/guestblogged label out. Oh, and this just shows you’re a little new to this side of your awesome blogger :)), then some drama happened, I went to Spain (not because of the drama), drama ended, I came back (not because of the drama), and here I am again!

So after so many testdrives/trials, this friendship still remains.
Or should I say, soulmateship? Sounds a little corny but that’s just what it is, oui woman?
And I’m welcoming my own return with a nice, long hackingguestblogging this post, I mean .. I should say it properly since I’m the “proper” person (inside joke) of the two of us.
Not much updates/whatnot since we met just last week. Quoting your blogger, I hope it won’t be long till our next time. I don’t have our recent photos, and I’m just butt lazy to go and steal from facebook (she’d understand knowing me too well), but I’m glad those moments were back.
3 years ago, she’d go all excited and jump and gimme that innocent smile BECAUSE she wants something. 3 years later, still the same thing happened at JUSCO TOILET of all places :p
3 years ago, she’d be all excited looking at nail polish colours and not know which to pick. 3 years later, … need I say more?
3 years ago, she’d say something so ridiculous, I’ll stare at her and she gets it. 3 years later, …
I think we established the whole familiarity thingamajig.
Anyway woman, this November, we’d be 3 years :)
From what was to what is, and what is to come.
Here’s to us, and I’m SO proud of you, how your strength developed through those years, how you become who you are right now, and how you deal with your stuff. And like how you constantly remind me, there’s no need to hold the fort yourself for too long. You have ME. :) and every other person who loves you around you.
Much love (I was so tempted to end it with XOXO :p),
la alma gemela. ;)


It’s been quite some time since I’ve written a Mango to Pineapple post. This isn’t really gonna be one. I guess time changes everything. And friendships don’t stay the same unless you keep working on them. We’ve had our ups and downs. Believe me when I say it’s been the extreme on both ends. But after everything, I guess when you love someone, you don’t ever completely disappear.
Right now, i’m missing Pineapple. A lot.
I miss our random photo moments. And the silly things we did together.
Nails. Hair. Cooking. Gossiping. Dancing. Shopping.
Woman. Can I go hang out with you once I’m back in KL again? =)
