Was stopped at the M’sia Customs when I wanna entered M’sia last Fri … why? bcos I dun hv an exit stamp for my last visit to M’sia. So, on records, I’m still in M’sia & hv over-stayed for 1yr.

Frightened was I, the Officer asked me to go to their office to record ‘statement’. So, my grp of frens hd to leave with the coach, and I was alone at the Customs. My immed thot was to go back to S’pore and not to meddle with M’sia Customs Officers; but tis wld mean tt I wld nvr allow to travel to M’sia again.

I went to their office, and was waiting outside comfortably watching TV, but my heart & mind were vy unsettled. After abt half an hour, the Officer settled my problem and brought me back to the place to wait for the next coach. Boy, I was so relief and thank the Officer profusely 😀 .

My nxt challenge was to find my way there to the hotel alone. Bcos of the customs issue, a few pple were alerted … me kiasi, so sms-ed pple to let them know where i was. So, when I reached KL, Jason asked Peng2 to fetch me instead of taking the cab bcos of safety concerns. But then, it wld take Peng2 some time to reach where I was bcos of the traffic jam & my grp of frens were waiting for my arrival to set off to another place vy vy soon. So no choice but to take the cab alone to the hotel. When I arrived safely at the hotel, everyone cheered. Subsequently, my frens were curious to know the whole saga with how, what, why, when, where, etc … …

Thank you my frens who helped to talk to the Officer, and Jason & Peng for ensuring my safety. Oh, not forgetting the two helpful & friendly M’sia Customs Officers, thank you very much.

Cheers to 21yrs of Friendship!!! December 9, 2006

After sooooo many yrs, we’re (7 of us) still able to REALLY ‘keep in touch’. In fact 3 of us knew each other since primary school, but only became good buddies when we were in secondary school.

A misunderstanding before GCE ‘A’ Level almost ‘killed’ the friendship, and both parties were hurt. Time passed, we grew wiser 🙂 and finally re-united a few yrs later, that was really a blessing and at least it won’t be a regret in my life.

Yesterday was a special day … we made an effort (incl one lost sheep) to hv our 1st makeover session together 🙂 . After all these yrs, we still enjoyed taking photos of funny/crazy poses, it was fun! We also had a good & loud laugh 😀 while browsing our old photos in a ‘quiet and high class’ restaurant.

The only difference now is tt we talk more about our kids 😉 .

Friendship needs commitment. A toast to our 21 years!!!
