Going Solo ;p

For last three years, no… maybe last two years… (when was living in the city)… one of the things that I really2 enjoyed is a solo stroll around city…. It has been a while since I last did that… and today, due to the sold-out 100gsm A3 paper in two office works nearby… I got to go to another office work in Elsternwick which is not that far but for someone who has a really bad sense of direction despite all sorts of maps, city links apps in the phone… it’s quite a challenging trip. Hahaa… it adds to the challenge that they are doing some refurbishments with the tram tracks… therefore, I need to take bus to get there. For God sake, I couldn’t recall myself taking a bus since I lived in Melbourne. Maybe there were a couple of times… but I’m pretty sure I wasn’t on my own.

However, it ‘s a success… and to my surprise, I really enjoy my solo outing to the heart… hahaa… I feel so me again…

Just one thing… I never enjoy eating alone… never ever… but I don’t really mind… it’s just that, there is no delight… no nikmah… but I do eat alone occasionally, because I have too and I don’t have that much energy to starve myself… hahaa…

Cuma teringat, a couple of years back then… I was on my solo outing in KLCC, spent some hours reading at kinokuniya.. I got hungry then went for some late lunch at secret recipe.. and there were these two well-dressed young ladies, sitting at the next table… well… I was on my mp3… they might have thought I couldn’t hear them… but I did. The conversation was something like this;

Lady A: eh, you pernah tak makan sorang…. Eh, I tak boleh la makan sorang… sgt loner.
Lady B: ha’a laa… mcmana eh orang boleh keluar jalan-jalan dan makan sorang-sorang.

God! I was like “helllloooooo, I can hear you girls…”

Well, maybe they were not talking about me, but gosh! I was alone having my meal next to their table… and there were not that many people around…

Oklah… whatever… I don’t know, but it’s kind of okay and fun to take a solo stroll here… besides, the public transportation is good, so I don’t have to worry much about getting lost because I can always find my way back. But I realized that it’s kind of awkward back in Malaysia.

Its true… I hate going shopping alone in Malaysia... I need a company to give opinions on things that I want to buy. But if I want to go to a bookstore, it takes a really patient person to accompany me… or, someone who simply loves spending hours flicking through pages of books that she/he might not buy. ngeheee...

Or someone, who loves to read.

I’m going home in four days.
