Alright, my name is Stephanie. I am 25 this year, and I am a creative manager at Eatbook SG. Hi, my name is Stanley. Right now, I’m an undergrad in a local uni, and I’m interning in an audit firm right now. Whoo, nervous! PD: How is your current dating life? Wow, my current dating life. Hmm, it is… almost non-existent, but I have a lot of friends- and family, friends, church mostly. Yeah, I date my family lah. I’ve been dating for a bit. I think nothing really progressed to anything serious, you know. Erm, some things just didn’t work out. PD: What is your ideal type? Okay… First and foremost, I think we have to have the same values. And number two, I think it would be good if he likes photography. Three, I don’t know leh. Just somebody who like, we can click together lor, just be friends first. My ideal type is that erm… I tend to go for the cute ones a bit more. You know, has a nice smile. Outgoing. I really like someone who can actually talk a lot. So, that’ll be fun. PD: So what I’m going to do now, PD: I’m going to give you a form, PD: and I’m going to give you your date’s Instagram profile. PD: So, on the form, there’s a few questions. PD: So what you have to do is to fill up these questions based on your first impressions of your date through their Instagram profile. Hi! Hi! Your name is? Huh? Your name is? Stephanie. Stanley, nice to meet you. Nice to meet you! Alright hi! Hi! Woah, I feel like I’m interviewing you. One of many interviews I’ve been through. Oh man, that sucks! Okay, let’s go through our answers! Okay, how about you start first. Okay, how old do you think I was. I said 24, 25. I thought you graduated, ’cause I thought I saw you like dancing at the SMU sign. Dancing at the SMU sign? Oh right, you saw that on Instagram. Okay. I guessed that you were 22. Oh wow! I don’t know if I’m honoured or not. I’m not! You want to take another guess? 25, this year? I am! I said that you were a banker because I saw the OCBC thing. Okay, by the way, I have to apologise ah, but Instagram is not like a personal thing. It’s like my art gallery, so you probably cannot guess anything. You eat! It’s too early for this! I said travelling. I said soccer/touch rug and I said nature/sightseeing. I said travelling. I saw the post on- Oh… nice! Er, yoga? Nope. I very action one, sorry. I said that erm, your childhood dream was… Okay, I scrolled all the way down! All the way down? Then your second post was like Harry Potter. So I just anyhow write wizard! Just anyhow write wizard! I wrote that you want to be a teacher or something like that. Oh wow! That’s such a logical answer though! I wanted to be Hi-5. Cos I like singing, acting and dancing, then they do all three. Oh okay. So do you still sing, act and dance? I act! How about sing? I think I can sing, and I cannot dance. PD: So now we are going on to the next part of the date. Okay! PD: A part will be the activity, PD: but I’m not going to tell you exactly what the activity is first. PD: Yup, but these are three challenges that you have to do. I feel like I’m in Running Man! PD: Here are your three challenges! You can take a look at it. Number one, ask him to take a selfie with you. Number two, say that you are cold and get him to give you a jacket. But I clearly have a jacket! Three, ask him to dance with you while doing the activity?! Cannot lah! Help lah! Number one, make her laugh by telling her a joke. [Number two], a story which reflects about you positively, but not in an [obvious] manner. [Number three], hold her hand while doing the activity. Easy. Easy. Keep a lookout! PD: Alright! Number Three, hold her hand. I’m gonna hold her hand! PD: So, where do you guys think you’re going to? I don’t know where I’m going, as long as it’s with her. PD: Are you all scared? Yes! I confirm fall one! I will catch you! Hi, we’re Steph and Stan! Haha, what the sh*t! Is this a new segment? Okay, anyway, I am very tired, so I’m going to sit on this thing. We are skating right now, and she’s going to sit on this seal while I push her. Help lah! I’m very cold though! Do you have jacket? Huh? Very cold? What’s very cold? No, as in, I’m very cold. You’re very cold? You’re very cold is it? You want a jacket? (Talking to PD) Er, where’s her jacket? Or use me as a jacket lah, like that! Okay. Let’s go! TSL Personality coming through! Stop it! Okay, so how was today? I think it was very fun! I think it was a good experience lah, you know. Okay. Was it what you expected? Everything and more! How was this for you? Was this what you expected? Er, I guess so. I wasn’t expecting anything. I think today was really quite fun! We had a good time talking. Ice skating was fun. Yes! I haven’t done that in quite a while! I was scared that it would be very awkward. It was okay what! I don’t think it was very awkward! But I don’t think it was very awkward, which is good. Yeah, that’s good! So, as of now, the date is what? Today is the 11th right? I don’t know, my watch don’t tell me the date. I think today is the 11th. Right, so what are you doing on the 14th? Actually, I got plans already. Okay. Aiyah, no lah, I’m going out with my family. Oh. My cousin and my aunt. Put some memes over here right, on my face. But hey! Stay positive man! You know, positivity is my middle name! Do you have work tomorrow? Yes. Don’t you? (Me too!) I have a long day at work. Help lah! So what are you going to do over Chinese New Year? Go visiting and eat? As in… Are you trying to ask me out? No! As in… Put another meme here. How will you rate this date out of 10? Eleven! It’s not even on the scale man! Aiyoh, I don’t know! Okay, around say, I think a solid eight. I think it was okay. It was okay?! No, I think it was good! I think 8/10. Erm, I think one of the more memorable parts about the cafe was definitely- was when she brought up the 20 fun facts thing. Erm, I thought it was a great way to break the ice, you know, it helped me along a little bit. And that was great you know, just knowing a bit more about her, just talking a bit. When I first met him, I think we hit it off quite well! He was a natural- conversationalist. So the two of us could talk a lot lah. I think the interesting part was definitely the challenges. I kind of just skipped the first two and went all the way to the last one, which was to hold her hand during the activity, so I was quite shocked when she actually initiated it first. Was it… was I thinking too much? You know, I’ve never done it. Like he was very [gentlemanly] lah. So even when we were like getting our shoes and stuff like that, he would offer to help me get the shoes, so he was like, quite like considerate. We just had a lot of like very small conversations along the way, which made me feel very comfortable. Yeah, it really was just like talking to a friend lah. Like an old friend or what. PD: So we asked you guys if you would go on a second date with each other right, and y’all wrote your answers down. PD: So here, I have your date’s answers. I feel like I already know what he’s going to say. Help lah! This is so upfront leh! There are three words. It doesn’t say, “I love you”. It says, Baby girl, yes!” If it’s no right, you know all my SMU friends are going to start laughing at me. So shout out to all of you! I… think we can click well, and happy to hang out in the future. Well. You know, life goes on. PD: But how do you feel about it? It was good, it was good. I definitely would love to hang out with her sometime. Ultimately, I think he is a nice guy, but in terms of like a second date right, like because [I think he needs to be] a potential life partner, I think maybe not. But we just hang out as friends lor. But I think all in all for a first date, it was really fun. I think that’s the meaning of the show, so you know, kudos to her for being- erm, you know, very sporting, very nice, and I did, I did have a good time today. It was a good break for me, so tomorrow back to work.
