Irene’s Birthday… and Sticky Rice

Amazing Race Irene was in planning for two weeks, involved about 15 people and several gifts, and probably traumatised some people for life. All Liv’s idea, of course. She can’t just do a normal birthday party, oh no, it has to involve Irene running around the island performing otherwise embarassing tasks (but not to her) in exchange for her birthday gifts(all from Liv, not us) and the clue for the next station. The stationmasters were allowed to come up with the dares for their station, so Liv could truthfully abdicate responsibility for it.

As things would have it, in the flurry of emails sent back and forth between all the participating friends on the logistics of the event, all the three couples somehow were alloted the same station. Of course, there was no question of separating the couples to different stations, because they are constitutionally incapable of spending more than 5 minutes away from each other. They are incapable of even sitting more than 2 cm apart at the dinner-party we had at Liv’s house after the race, forcing us singles to give up our seats so that they can continue being sticky rice. But anyway, it didn’t come to pass that they were indeed all at the same station, because of last-minute rearrangements. But if they had… this is how I imagine their conversation would have gone.

Manqin: Hey everyone!

Cheyenne: Hi… *goes back to staring at Manqin* I love you!

Anj: *sits down* Hey!

Kai: That skirt is too short for you to decently sit down… couldn’t you get something longer?

Cheyenne: Speaking of skirts, my baby wore one yesterday, and she looked sooo sexy in it… ahh… my baby manqin… I love her so much!

Ogy: *rolls eyes* My baby loves breast more than thigh.

Cheyenne: My baby loves me!

PF: Not anymore, not for chicken.

Anj: Kai wants me to marry her in three years!

Manqin: So, do you think Irene is going to like the bunny tail I made for her?

Kai: And so you will, because you are mine! And that skirt is still too short.

Cheyenne: Ah, my baby manqin…. so thoughtful, so cute, so creative. I love her loads!

Manqin: Here comes Irene!

Kai: Why is she here? Wait a minute, why are we all here? *looks at Anj again* Marry me, I love you so much!

Ogy: It is Irene’s birthday!

Cheyenne: It is? I only remember my baby’s birthday….

Anj: How do you know it is Irene’s birthday… *gasps* do you read her blog?

PF: Hey guys, should we make her sing Elton John songs?

Anj: Who is Elton John?

*and so on and so forth until everyone except Cheyenne and Manqin has fainted from sugar-shock and Kai buys Anj an ankle-length skirt*


Anyway, Happy Birthday Irene!

  3. We need to do a URC.
    Unsticky Rice Camp.
    Each member of a couple would attend WITHOUT her double, and will spend an entire evening having fun WITHOUT her, WITHOUT talking about her, WITHOUT calling her, WITHOUT sms-ing her, WITHOUT EVER speaking her name.

    If you have fainted just by imagining yourself doing this, you can’t be unsticked, just buy a house, go to Boston to get married, and please have lots of kids asap just to get rid of some of the stickiness.

  4. Liv, I will take you up on that invitation if you ever do become like that.

    O’Ren, I don’t think that’s possible. They won’t make it… they’ll find a way to bust out of camp to be with their baby within 5 mins.

    Hi Pleiney! I’m perfectly capable of having fun by myself, k… !

    Liv —- are you sure you won’t be like that. It all started from cute nicknames, y’know… “Bunny and the Princess”

  13. Woah. I must say HENG AH! (lucky me) that I was not quoted in anyway in your stickyrice series. I’m not sticky thank you very much. I’m only sticky towards Irene.
