Please shoot a video of the "festivities".
Then dub over the Benny Hill Theme to it.

Without any second thought and intention to offend anybody I told her (as far as I remember) something about me liking cats, that I had a lot of cats before and thinking about getting one here, in Singapore. Her reaction was a surprise to me. Being allergic to cats is one thing, being freaked out about somebody talking about cats is different thing.
Then x9200 went to ask her whether she is upset bcuz I was talking about cats, and she disappeared without saying anything.

No, I will give her my apologies if she is there, but what could I do - I'm not a psychiatrist to be able to diagnose such a behavior before it happened.

I remember that part of the discussion too and I only wondered whether there was anything else said that I didn't hear, as I was also mystified by the extreme reaction. She must have been having a bad day.

I don't mind cats myself (prefer dogs though as I think they are more loyal), but my wife hates them. In Spain they are considered vermin by some people.

It's the Mackenzie Rd address. Search Google Maps for '25 Mackenzie Rd Singapore 228681' and next to the 'pin' in the map you should see Phad Thai. Nearest MRT is Little India. See you there (but don't bring your cat :P ).

My gf may come along at later time to take me away, but she's pretty human, don't worry. :)
