To An Old Friend


I don't know the postcode

Dear God,

It's been awhile since I wrote to you. Sorry k? Been busy at a job which I have mix feelings about. There's so much uncertainty around me. I don't know what's going to happen with management. And I am kind of tired being the only Malay in my department. Everyone eats pork around me. But like you always told me, take it as a challenge. Ok, I will.

I quit drinking you know? Yeah, since January. Haven't drank a drop, even when a delicious cocktail is infront of me. But, to tell you the truth, I kind of miss it though. That refreshing taste. Ok, ok, a coke will do. Yeah, the slice of lemon really does helps.

I just want to tell you that Pa is fine, Ma too, and my siblings. I don't know about Wari though. It's been awhile since I talked to him on the phone. You know what? I am beginning to think that I don't know him anymore. He has gotten a whole new life now over there. A good job and girlfriend and all. I hope that I can still relate to him. I hope that I can see him soon.

As for Aiman, I don't know anything about him anymore. He's grown up despite me thinking he is like still 10. I saw him at Zouk last Thursday. I don't know why I didn't say hi to him. He looked so cool actually. Him and his shades. Him and his rich kids group. I hope we won't fight as often. I hope he knows what's he's doing.

As for my friends? I am glad you blessed me with them. I am hanging out more with Khaylis and Maya now. We're trying to be healthy, you see. As for me, trying to bulk up. I don't want to be skinny like I was. Zales is great. Efi just got into a car accident. Han's still planning for the movie. I missed hanging out with Fairil. Shobshob is coming down to KL. Kobis is living his single life up. I'm going to see Vinnie later. And Aeyya is coming back into town very, very soon. Hooray!

I've got to go now. Lunch time is over. You take care ok?

Your number one fan,
Muds.

I count my blessing on a daily basis. I am grateful for my family & friends and all the things in my life. Good or otherwise.

You're a sweet, sweet person mudster. God bless.

i keep thinking over and over again. instead of looking at all the things we DON'T have, we should look and be grateful at things we DO have. there won't be much to complain about then, will there??

but then again, we're all humans. to whine and complain is part and parcel of our daily lives. hehehe. thus, i shall continue my ravings and rantings with the occassional 'kesyukuran'. hehehehe

Only on my slighly better behaviour when i report to HIM everyday...and I got nervous everytime i think that's he's just sitting up there staring straight thru me...it still doesn't stop my bad behaviour most of the time...manusia yang lalai!! Sigh...

Ok, I might get you wrong pulak this time around.

I assumed that you were writing to God up till the very last paragraph, "You take care ok?"

Since you've mistakenly presumed I nicknamed my Ex as 'Bibik' (oh my, I had my biggest laugh in weeks in Aji Don just now, Muddy), so correct me if I'm wrong, unless you addressed your Ex as God (?), or Goddess ke?

Dear God,

You still owe me 12 Dollar. I've already told you no supernatural powers during Poker Nights.

You better pay up. Or I'll tell people you've cheated.

Lesson learned:
A person who's able to accept their own weakness is defined as CUTE.

There are times when watching youths today make me sad.. too often, I regret to say. But when I come across something like this, it warms me up inside, reassuring me that there is always hope.

Thank you for that.

hey, really enjoyed our meeting with Mods and the Ladies. Had so much fun, minus the "where am I?" part. Huhuhu...so, thank God i am not the only person who doesn't know where that mall is.

madnessinvain :

Hahahahahah...mana boleh lupa? oh no worries about future parents in law man. my trustful charm always works in full degrees when meeting them up. huhuhu...

pesa :

yeah, i totally agree. Sometimes it does send me the chill to realise that my actions are all recorded, even behind close doors. huhuhu...so, yeah, will try to reduce the bad here and there though...

yoga :

Ya Allah, takkan I will call my Ex Goddess??? There's only one Goddess in the blogland, and she and her hubbie makes tongue-wagging pancakes! ;)

Hahahahaha...my bad, i don't have a maid babe. that's the reason why i thought bibik was your baby/ex/boyfriend. Muahahahah!!!

marinadelray :

chics :

You're in the same situation as i am? really? wow, i feel not so alone anymore. huhuhu...

I am truly blessed that i have someone like you in my life. you have made uni, clubbing and shah alam a wonderful experience babe, and for that, i truly believe you are the sister i never had. :))

silent :

mzmin :

oh wow! you are extremely welcome babe. yeah, don't lose hope in our youths. perhaps they are experimenting at the moment. but we all need to do that, to understand ourselves what's really right, and what's really wrong. that's what i call growth.

ps : i was thinking of allowing annonymous comments, but...will think about it. :)
