As I looked at my hp’s screen and trying to figure out who could that be, another call coming in. Heh. Him rupanya.
“Wei mana ko pegi aku kol 18 kali tak angkat?” He screamed at the other end of the line (in a good way, though).
“Heh, sorryla aku tak perasan call tadi. Ngah mandi la. Ko ni apahal? Bini ko dah beranak ke?” I remembered that her wife is due anytime soon, hence the question.
“Yela, tu pasal aku call banyak kali tadi! Tadi petang dah keluar dah. Baby girl. 3.78kg”
“Mak ai! Tembam gile! Sape nama?”
“Camne nak eja tu?” I asked, confirming.
“A-R-I-S-Y-A-H kot, ntah aku pun taktau!”
He is my bestfriend. Since we were in form 4 at Bukit Jalil. And she is my bestfriend too, we were roomies back in Uitm Shah Alam.
He and I go back a long way then. He used to forced me to be his ‘secretary’, helping him write love letters to his sweetheart while we were in school (but that one was another girl). Everytime I go to his house at Alor Gajah, his mum will kiss me like there’s no tomorrow and treated me like one of their own kids (they don’t have any girls siblings). His dad used to drive me to college whenever I bunk at their house (even when he’s not around). I remembered that one night, around 4am, I got a call from him and I heard his cry on the other end…
“Syeda, adik aku meninggal malam tadi, accident”
“OMG! I’m so sorry…” And I could not sleep for the rest of the night. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able pay them a visit coz’ I was in the middle of exam that time. That left him with his other brother (whose close to me as well)
While she, she was my roomie, and the three of us used to hang out together. For all I know they were an item already, without I’m doing any effort matching them up. Heh. They got married December last year, and 9 months (and a few days) later, baby Arisya is born (ehmm.that was fast!)🙂
Whatever it is, I’m so happy for u guys both!
But the most pening-est time is when they got into a fight. She will call me and cursed his hubby like hell, and ask me to come to her rescue. While he, on the other hand will call me and said that not to entertain her wife. Oh gosh! But every other time, they are the sweetest couple on earth!
I don’t have baby Arisya’s picture yet (Thanks to his ignorance to register for MMS service), but what I do have the picture of three of us.

Ps: Can’t wait to lay my eyes on my another god-daughter….🙂
Ps: Updated as at 26 September – the baby’s name is (confirmed) Elisyah Sofea (don’t mind my spelling tho, but it sounded something like that laaa)
