Arrivederci, AAron! Mi Manchi!!

On Wednesday, I drove to Kuala Lumpur to meet up with AAron.... yes, on Wednesday evening, I felt the tremor in Royale Bintang Hotel, but being blur as I always am, I didn't realize it was an earthquake effect, I thought they were doing some renovation that caused the room to trigger for awhile. Anyway, I was busy blogging furiously cos I couln't get into some websites using the hotel's password and ID.

THE REASON I went to KL.... yes, the pictures said it all... to send AAron off...

Where? To Italy....

Why? His company sent him for a three months internship training...

With? 2 of his coursemates as well....

I didn't want to disclose earlier cos his flight didn't finalize until the day itself, ie. on Thursday, they only got back their visas yesterday at noon.... so imagine how panicky they were.. I were too.. .. (jadi atau tak jadi, we were not sure)... but we had everything packed during the weekend, winter clothings and all were bought and neatly packed...

His friends who came to the airport...
I am very grateful to all of them
Cos they led me back to the hotel
it was already midnight!

Thank you, Billy, Kee Siong,
Winnie & Dody...

Now I am home...I am still waiting for his call from Italy... last night he told me his hp's battery was already weak... anyway, I am still waiting anxiously for his sms/call....

In three months time we will meet again....
Arrivederci! Addio!
Mi Manchi!!
