Yesterday – Day 1. I said I wanted to do nothing and I did almost nothing. And this entry is gonna be like a typical diary entry: I ate this, I saw this, and I did this. Sorry. Hohoho.
Lazed around the house till 4:30pm before we decided to head out. Then my aunty called and said to wait at home because we are now going out for dinner at 6pm. No point to leave the house then. Woops.
Dinner was at her in-laws’ place – simple home-cooked meals cooked by the maid. Heh. For a Muslim Indonesian, she makes really authentic Chinese dishes. No pork of course. Caught up with my aunty’s younger sister-in-law for a bit. She used to study in Perth and our families are quite intertwined. She treats me like an older cousin because she’s younger than me. Reucas my cousin is her nephew but she follows the name-rank he uses for me and calls me “Marcus kor-kor” which means “older brother”.
After dinner, Phil messaged me and said, “Up for some midnight gaming?” I immediately thought lascivious thoughts and replied, “Heh heh. ‘Gaming’ eh?” He replied, “Yes, gaming. As in PC.” Rats.
He came and picked me up around 11pm and drove us all the way back to where he lives: Petaling Jaya SS2 which was about 25 minutes away. This is also the area where I used to live. It’s an area which has changed a lot though I can still pick up some of the older landmarks.
Got introduced to his five friends there and it was on! 3-on-3 multi-player deathmatch on “Call of Duty 2”. Yes, how geeky can we get. But man it was awesome. Lotsa swearing, and lotsa hysterical laughter from killing our virtual selves.
The two hours flew by and it was time to leave. The cost: RM$8.50 each. Phil said it well, “Not bad for two hours of fun.” You definitely can’t get the same kinda value from clubbing and drinking. Also women. 😉
And that was day 1.
