Find me a date: Faliq and Izzawati

The date: our daters had a meal at Hello Kitty Orchid Garden

First impression

Izzawati: 'I went with zero expectations, and as it turned out, he’s not bad looking and quite cute. I didn’t expect him to be that tall!'

Faliq: 'I noticed immediately that she made an effort to dress up and look nice. I was impressed.'


Izzawati: 'Turns out we do share a few interests. We’re both food lovers and like to explore. He’s also able to open up when we talked about more personal topics.'

Faliq: 'I think we definitely had a bit of chemistry. We had a good conversation.'

Awkward moment

Izzawati: 'I don’t think we had any. Our conversation was very smooth.'

Faliq: 'None, but we were seated in swinging chairs facing each other in the middle of the café – that was awkward.'


Izzawati: 'We initially wanted to extend the date but completely lost track of time and chatted until way past 10pm.'

Faliq: 'I asked her out for a movie, but we ended so late that we had to shift our movie plans to another day.'


Izzawati: ♥♥♥♥ 'I’ll go out with him again. In fact, we’ve already arranged a movie date!'

Faliq: ♥♥♥♥ 'I’m open and curious to see how far it can progress.'


Hello Kitty Orchid Garden

The atmosphere
'Even though I’m not a big Hello Kitty fan, I think the setting is worth venturing to for a date – just to try it out.' – Izzawati

The food
'After a light and refreshing salad, our mains felt quite heavy, especially my wagyu beef rendang ($24). Its presentation was very appetising, though.' – Faliq

The drinks
'Our cucumber and watermelon fizzy coolers ($7.90) were very “hipster” and on-trend.' – Izzawati
