I know, I know. I’m finally back in KL again. I really should make better use of my time to go out and visit all the new malls, eat good food, meet up with friends and stuff like that.
But I’m tired. Spent all morning involved in a prayer session for my grandma. Before that I also accompanied dad to the morning market to buy prayer food. After the prayers, making small talk with relatives in my cramped home, lunch (too many people, too shy to take photos openly) and cleaning up, I’m now stuck with my usual routine when I’m back home: glued my eyes in front of the TV while talking to mom. The Indonesians are spanking the Chinese in men’s double on live TV as I am typing this.
I don’t even know what was the purpose of the prayers. According to the parents, it is the “third anniversary” or something to do with “three years”. Whichever way I count, grandma has only left us for two years. I wonder what calendar those experts use to arrive at the three years figure. Maybe it is not human calendar we are talking about here. I wonder if TM Anay has any expertise with this…
Oh yeah. I also attended a wedding of a college friend last night. The dinner was held in Flamingo Hotel, Ampang. I am embarrassed to admit that even though this hotel is within 10 minutes driving distance from my home, this was the first time I set foot into this hotel. I was shocked that there is a nice (man made) lake behind the hotel, so the view is somewhat nice. Some of you have probably seen this photo on my Instagram or personal FB already. But… who cares? I’ll show the photo here again.
Actually, I probably should not feel embarrassed. What wrong with never visiting a hotel that is within a 10 minutes drive from your home? It should be perfectly normal. Visiting a hotel so close to home would be what is really weird, right?
I don’t know if you have noticed, but it seems to me that nowadays, most wedding dinners will inevitably have shit happen, one way or another. I cannot count how many times I have heard foul mouths commenting on how the PA system sucks, food sucks, service sucks, waiters not handsome enough, etc. I cannot count how many times I have had to interrupt said foul mouths with comments like: “You’re here because you are a friend. The main reason you are here is to give your blessings to the newlywed, not comment about things beyond their control”.
Thankfully, yesterday was one such occasion where I did NOT have to make such comments. the wedding was very nice. I’m not sure if there were hidden stuff going on, but from my point of view, the wedding dinner seems to be progressing smoothly with no hiccups. It was wonderful. Good job, Flamingo! And good job, bride and groom, for making the right choice of hotel!
Last but not least, Congratulations, Keith and Jenn! May you make lots of babies together ASAP! 😀
