Changes

I meet up with Annsyc yesterday (refer to my blogroll) yesterday, she was in town hence she seeks me to for a Teh Tarik Session. She is as jovial as ever and fills with expression, hands moving, and eyes turning and rolling while talking. I have not seen her for quite some time. The last time I seen her was at the KLIA airport whereby she is on her way to Brunei and I am on my way to Jakarta.

It’s very interesting in meeting up with friends, colleague, relatives and neighbours that you have not meet for a long time. You could see how they have grown and changed. You could see your own changes in them. The features of their face might not change much, maybe there is a few wrinkles or lines somewhere on the forehead or beside the eyes. The once na├»ve, innocent eyes has turned into a mature, street smart human and do not mess with me look.

I have seen a few of my old neighbours (more than 20 years) walking around KLCC. They walk past me as though we are total strangers but they eyes failed them. When they looked at me, they have those looks that say I know you but I am too busy to stop and chit chat. From far you could see they have changed, they are the same person that goes spider hunting, marble throwing, fireworks fighting with you with their pagoda singlet and Japanese slippers. Now they are wearing ties, with briefcase and possibly Hugo Boss business shirt, pants and their sparkling Clarks. Environment changes, so do human.

actually after coming perth,
I don't know whether I've changed. But you see hor, when I do go back... People might say I've changed.
And I might think, " who are they to judge? " and also because I could be thinking the same thing as them.

They've changed too.

LeeCS, When? Where is my wife? We got to answer this together... hahaha

Pat, Yeap are right, you say people change, people say you change. Especially if you goes back only half or once in a year. There are a lot of differrence. Like me I might have another line on my forehead.

Tan Chun Wei, You are also right but majority wise I think its towards the dark side... the force is not strong enough.

Vandice, I think I do not really realise that I have changed until I meet my old friends. I see my own changes via them. As we talked about the past, you then realise it has been so long. Even the scar on my leg has since faded...

Annsyc, I were busy observing.... acmabook? Let me surf the site first and will sms you if I want..
