even where the affections are not strongly moved by any superior excellence, the companions of our childhood always possess a certain power over our minds which hardly any later friend can obtain. they know our infantile dispositions, which, however they may be afterwards modified, are never eradicated; and they can judge of our actions with more certain conclusions as to the integrity of our motives.
out of the blue, they came knocking at my door, the best gift, definitely a brilliant start to the new year.
meet jern-fei + thuan ahn (the boys in stripes), friends from a levels.
meeting the boys again made me realised how sorely i miss the ctc clan, the malaysian chapter especially, since they were like family back then.
jern-fei has always been the sensible one (he's a barrister, i don't want to get him into trouble with the law, on the account of his previous sins, if any but he had none, none that i know of. ske lah! i nak sound silly.). but seriously, he was real sensible + straight. the rest of us? well, i'll let you into one notty feat. we once had an illegal barbeque + sleep out right smack on brighton beach next to the pier. it was during the cold bit of spring. teehehe! the boys thought they were strong macho swimmers, at one point they jumped right into the water, seconds later they came out running + screaming. whilst clattering their teeth, they spitted out "the water was icy cold", like obviously. i know, you need not envy me; i was blessed with smart friends.
oh dear, i really miss them. out of curiosity i searched their names on the internet and i found chee-kit's cv. ayoh! acomplished nyer ... demmit! *wegra sits down to plan for world domination*
perhaps us connected few should track everyone down + work towards a reunion summer 2008? 10 years after we went our seperate ways mengejar mimpi.
it'd be fun catching up, i bet we'd be kids again. :op
oh and peeps, thanks ever so much for the wishes, 28 on 28 eh? wasn't able to reply to all text messages because i haven't paid my bills. will do that in a bit ya, after this submission.
again, eid mubarak + have good fun this new year weekend!
