Monkey still recalled the evening where everyone were shoved a glass of champagne out of sudden
thinking it was another blinding....I was about to sip it...until...."wait wait wait hold it..."
until GOE proposed a GRAND TOAST and made the announcement
tears of joy streamed down my cheek and waves of congrats were heard through the venue = J&J's crib

30 seconds later...everyone were bz tweeting/FB-ing their status....hahahahahaha
