A get together after so many years..

Didn't meet most of them after we graduated from school, let's do some math


9 years...

I didn't aware it was already 9 freaking years, I thought it was "merely" 6-7 years until Friday. Spooky, really spooky... we didn't change that much! Still as young (HAHA), but well groomed. i.e. our eyebrows are definitely much better than those days :P
I still remember my fat caterpillar eyebrows, yikes!

I thank whoever organized this gathering, it was Mei Sin and Cat, I think :)
It was really happy, lovely to meet all of them. Although there were some faces which had not been planted deep in my thought before, I still appreciated this gathering as it is, very very much. To be true, I never liked gathering like this, bunch of people that we don't see in years (some are friends, and some never a friend, or once a friend, but not anymore...more like a semi stranger), gathered and just stick to the one you meet often. I mean, what's the point of having a gathering? We should talk to the one you didn't meet for long, not the one you met only 3 days ago. It's worse if you're going alone, you will feel so...left out. In short, I don't usually join these kind of gatherings...

I always felt nervous (okay a bit uneasy) to meet people I missed for years, because people changed over years. I might loved/missed them forever, but things might changed after years, after we meet. I have problem watching back the movies I adored, I have problem meeting people I once loved (lol like I had lots of lovers, haha), I have problem seeking the truth (ok not really). Sigh... do you know The Sound Of Music? The Neverending Story? or maybe Jurassic Park? I loved all these...but some years later, I found it in shop and decided to re-watch it, I found it was all so wrong, still a nice movie, but it's not as amazing as it was. Sooner or later, I started to stop watching shows that I previously loved to death, like...I'll never want to watch Here On Earth, again.

I felt a little not too comfortable when I first arrived, we were so happy to see each other, we hugged, and smiled. But my mind was already thinking what to say next, or what's the suitable topic to share. Maybe I thought too much, things got easier after a while :) Deborah (the primary reason I was there) turned up, things got least this was what I thought, I really wanted to meet her. Our last met was not 9 years ago, it was 8 years ago, met her once in Kinokuniya bookshop, didn't aware our next meet up would be 8 years later. Time flies, remember?

I know she's going to read this, but I'll just carry on.
I have a little thing about her, you know...we didn't talk that much at school, but I always wanted to know her better but never a chance..
OMG I sound so gay, haha!

What I meant is, I thought we could be not just a ..
"how's your revision class"
"is Puan Tan in today"
...friend ;)

Okay, too much of craps, some photos I took that night.
Grrrr I feel so angry just looking at these pics, my camera was low battery, I didn't bother to check the setting of the camera thus the grainy and blur photos! I hate lousy photos :(
I'll just post it anyway.
Gathering in Sri Ayutthaya, a Thai food restaurant.

I love the ambience in the restaurant,

I'm glad I joined them that night, you wouldn't know what you missed out if you don't :)
Taking initiative to meet up is the 1st step of having real friendship..
