Plain Wong

‘THIS is not the Chinese year of the monkey for nothing, and we at Anorak are not a little displeased that our good friends Andy and Patti Wong, of Wong’s Takeaway, failed to get an invite to us for their Chinese New Year’s Eve party.

‘Where’s Anorak? Weren’t they invited?’

We have duly removed our custom from their once thriving establishment, but not before paying one last visit and flicking through photos of their shindig that they so thoughtlessly left lying in the waiting area.

Andy and Patti have totally transformed themselves to look nothing like the couple we know and used to love into a vision of gangsta chic.

But the theme of their party seems to have been lost on many of their bestest customers and apparent friends, who missed the chance to wear bling-bling in favour of the usual attire of little black dresses, tuxedos and evening gowns.

We, of course, would not have let the Wongs down, and would have turned up as ever dripping in massive chunks of rough-hewn gold and diamonds as generous as Andy’s delicious chicken satay.

But we were not invited, although taking a look at the lot who were, we cannot help but feel a little better.

Rather than list the achievements of the guests, we merely produce a list of their names. And then only their first names.

Those who went include one of each of the following: Isabella, Giulia, Alexandra, Petrina, Koo, Percy, Eloise, Tamara and Flavio.

That leaves no room for Anorak, Brian, Tracey, Tony, Sharon, Dave, Peter or even little Armani, our office junior.

And neither does it leave much room for Andy’s twice-fried pineapple fritters. Well, not any more…’
