OK, you caught me there red-handed 🙂 Maybe I did bluff wee bit about going blogging-hiatus. pfft..! *smirking face* That’s so not me. I’m the storyteller and God knows how I went haywire without my daily dose of STORYTELLING!
SO, here’s the deal.
People that saw me the past month (note:since I left my former job) said that I’m glowing? In other words, I looked happy. Siap Tg Ismail (a former colleague in SC) made a bold (and the first!) flattering statement when we had lunch here last week : Your smile made my day (Don’t worry, he’s not my type. SINGLE is my type!)
I guess what they say is right. I guess I am happy-er(?). No I’m not attached JUST YET (and please don’t hold your breath if you intend to). It’s like this big boulder has been lifted off my shoulder (and for the heads-up, no I DIDN’T WIN ANY LOTTERY). It’s just that I have the great life I’ve always imagined (minus the long-standing and about-to-go-nowhere financial predicament). I don’t have (anymore) an annoying boss watching my back 24/7, I don’t have (anymore) pile of unsettling work on my big enormous desk, I am not (anymore) entangled in menyusahkan hidup complicated love story. I have a great and going on very well study plan for next year. I spent a marvellous time with my family and little cousins. I have excellent co-workers and to no shame to admit, I have her. She’s 29 with a kid but she taught me that life shouldn’t be as boring as it is seen on the surface.
Yesterday had lunch at Pa*ilion’s T*ny Rom*s (ala tkla sedap sgt pun it’s just that I’m a sucker for discounted lunch sets) with her. We were fooling around by baling2 napkins to each other’s faces and chasing around the eatery like nobody’s business. Some people looked at us and smiles at our quirkiness (and ada yang buat disgruntle faces. hello? the place is bising as it is already!). And on the way to parking lot we main kejar2 and she tarik-ed my tudung sampai tercabut *gals, remember the good old days main kejar2 sampai tercabut tudung before reached Aspuri from class or prep?* I’ve never been happier (and crazier!) when being around her. It’s like 17 all over again.
Who said we need a man to make us happy? *PussyCatDoll’s song humming at the back* As long as we know how to find the right person to be with (I said person, not guy), I guess we’ll be okay. We’ll be far than okay.
Ps: Cliche I know, but heck?> Embrace life. We got to live in it ONLY once 🙂
