last sunday, I went to sematan with a bunch of new friends, the oldest being 32 and the youngest 23. Most of them are fresh grads in their 1st job or just starting their 2nd job. When I see them, it’s like seeing myself with ah ying and the gang during our younger days all over again! The outings we went, so happy to overnite at the beach, we ll prepare food, BBQ, shopping 4 junk food. Wah, how fast time flies. "Our" time has passed. Most of us either married, haha, even hv baby and babies soon and some even moved to greener pasture. haha, they called me auntie!
Yes, Piang Yee cycled the double bicycle but bcos the front is too high, I only got to cycle from behind. When we were cycling, I kept reminding them, no need to be so fast, no need 2 b kiasu 1, we just enjoy the view, the coconut trees, the view of the sea, cow, kampung houses. Hahah, then again, being young, they are always screaming, "charge!!!". It was really scorching hot and our destination target was pretty far, actually it’s a waterfall at kampung pueh. After more than 30 minutes of cycling, we have not even reached 1/2 of our destination and the idea of cycling back is just really not a happy thing. So we decided to turn back. I wanted so badly to cycle again i told them the next day i shall cycle to town. It didnt happen because it was raining the next day.
We ended at the beach playing ball and kite. The kite was such a failure, it totally didnt fly at all instead it dropped on the seawater so we had to put it aside. Then we decided to play wave! hahaaaa, yes, it’s really2 like me with ah ying them all over again!!! Piang Yee felt so old, you can really see, being my age and being their age, you can really see, their prespective of life, the things they want, their ambitions. Marcus, being the youngest is 23. When the waves were really quite strong and when all of were "charging" towards the wave, Marcus shouted, wo yee ting yao fat chai! That moment, it really hit me, it’s like kiang, nb, chun wei all over again! hahhaaaa, the boys were really bad, they will take turns to "dip pig". Yi Ling was "dip" 3 times, replacing me and Chin Ping!!! Haha, I saw them coming, I avoided them and ran up the shore! That nit, we had BBQ, wah! the chicken wings and fish balls really nice!!!
the next day it was raining, the boys and Alice did went down 2 the beach, all wet because of the rain. We ended playing cards and who ever that lost, must finish eating the left over BBQ from the previous nit! hahahaaa, I ate A LOT lo!!! before we left we went down the beach again and took photos!!! cant wait to get the photos from Marcus! I had a wonderful stay with them
All burned and lacked of sleep, I had to try and make myself not "burned" and awake for Ben and Al’s wedding that nit! hahahaaa! Ben and Al’s wedding reception is one of the best I had attended
