Reminiscing - Almost nak Habis

Eh sorry lahye, bukan nak main acah acah, harini macam tak leh nak tengok blog lak. Tapi this story sudah dihafal oleh semua yang kenal I so sorry lah merepeat kat sini...heh heh..tak kesah kan.. Nanti esok I discuss world affairs ok.

Anyway, yah, BJ was right...Of course lah I bought the tickets !! Entah bila lah dia nak ajak I lagi kalau tak! After pikir punya pikir- tenyehje credit card....50 pound you. 50 quid is like RM300 to me. But for that price, dapat 3 row daripada stagelah. Nak naik nyanyi sekali pun boleh. Showboat was a famous musical yang sebelumnye I tak pernah dengar pun. Dia ajak I pergi tengok apa pun I tak tau. Hehehehhehe.

...So I pun beritaulah dia that I bought the tickets. Tapi I tak beritau dia how much , or which tickets ...Tungguler...

18th October 1990 - The DATE
- So we had a DATE!! Wahooooo!! Suspense gak menanti harinye...
Sementara menanti hari tu (2 weeks to go I think), ada tak jumpa-jumpa? Tak sangat kot..but if jumpa a bit tersipu sipu lah, sebab dah ada *ahem* date kan.....

So the day arrived....I pakai blouse bunga bunga oren and skirt panjang ..I had no sense of style , pada I dah lawa habis tu-(blouse tu I suka sangat but unfortunately I dah terbakar dengan iron so that was the end of that). He arrived in his yellow baggy sweater and chinos (wah aku ingat ni semua?) . Bawak payung and pakai his long coat yang memang I suka sebab macam Sherlock holmes gitu. (Ok i'm weird).

Masa tunggu bus (ehhhh ye lah,he made me take a bus!!) he wanted to pay me the ten pounds. Porah lah ten pounds hahahaha. I told him sheepishly, actually ah, the tickets tu, FIFTY POUNDS ok, sebab kalau nak yang murah, kena tidor kat theatre. Heh heh. The look on his face - you should have seen. Macam smirk pun ada, macam senyum pun ada. Menyampah. Sebab dia kata later, he thought "Yes!" - Eh how you know that I didn't buy the mahal tikets because I really wanted to see the musical?

Must say, husband ada style lah. Masa intermission kitorang pergi the nearby POSH hotel for coffee. Unfortunately the milk yang depa bagi for coffee (the one in little plastik bekas) basi so that spoiled it a bit. We all borak borak masa show sampai kena ssshhhhhhh! by the ppl at the back. Lepas show, dia nak balik. Aik?? So fast ah? So I pretended I was hungry and made him belanja me Pizzahut. Sampai lah kedai tutup...Heh heh heh.

And the rest is history you say?



Not quite....

Best Female Friend ??



After that, he appeared almost daily at my flat. So regularly that Nut my flatmate, dah tak bother nak tanya dia nak jumpa siapa , terus assume its for me . Macam-macamlah excuse dia, ajak I pi supermarket lah, ajak pi beli ayam lah, ajak pi tengok anak abangRosli&KakJah yang birthday tulah, macam-macam (activity yang free je, I notice heh heh). Orang dah start bergossippan. Adakah kami berdating or kawan? Actually, member tukan ramai kawan pompuan, so tak da lah jadi satu kejanggalan to see us walking together. But I guess we were going out too regularly to be just friends- I heard there was a bet going on, about exactly what he was up to, Adakah dia minat pada saya? Aakah saya perasan tahap mega? Maybe I was another Mumsie - best friend mah....

So I pun heran. Is he interested in me or what?? Masa jalan-jalan, tak da talk about benda jiwang pun. Selamba je. Ok lah kalau terusik tangan tu, ada lah crackling electricity sikit. Itu semestinye. Hehehehhehehe - chemistry mah!Tapi takdalah apa-apa hint ke, or what ke-, how long ni..If we bumped into each other at his house ke or other people's houses we all buat selambaje.

Anyway.. he was about to start his month stint at Derby hospital (1 hr away) to deliver babies. That meant that we would not see each other after that. He'd be staying there. Alamak. I thought to myself, I must do something. It was about 2 or 3 weeks after Showboat. Haaaa baru 2 minggu dah kecoh yek..

Something must be done!



Ok lah speak of the devil - He has arrived to pick me up from the office..... so I sambung esok ye.

Shila, I'm amazed you can still remember the date of the first date!

Terrornya..first date dah pergi tengok theatre gitu! Got class la your boyfriend tu.

Dating and makan kat Pizza Hut was such a norm la for us students dulu kan. Tu la tempat yg ada 'ambience' with affordable price for students with below-poverty-line allowance!

So..lepas tu were you the one to pop the question as in "Will you be my BF?"????

Gina,

Ya lah.. Pizza Hut was our favourite dating spot, kan? I memang suka pegi situ coz you'd give us free drinks!! Yeay!

I smiled a lot reading your story, Shila. Yes, you've told me about it before but somehow writing it down like this, makes us all remember it more. I ingat bits & pieces je, not all.

And no, I'm not bored. Cepat sambung, ok?!
