A continuation from ‘An old love story‘.
The girl only went out with the guy one time. But he continued to visit her at the bookstore, trying to convince her to give him a chance. That took a few months. She told me that she had other admirers, and all of them could sweet talk, so she refused to believe the sincerity of this particular guy.
What she didn’t know was that he had visited her family behind her back, and introduced himself to them.
A few days later her father asked her if the guy was her boyfriend. She was shocked and her father told her that he had visited him. (If you can’t guess it by now, she comes from a conservative family and didn’t want her parents to think she was eager to be married off.)
Once again, she felt bad and a little bit touched with his persistence. She started dating him.
But 2 months later, he was transferred to Penang for work. He had just joined the police force back then. Crazy, you’d say, since most of you disagree with long-distance relationships!
The guy put in a lot of effort. Back in those days, he wrote her almost every week. She wrote to him once in a while. Occasionally, they’d arrange to have a telephone chat – she’d have to go to a public phone to call him at his aunt’s house.
Back in those days = 12 to 13 years ago……
It continued for 2 years, until she stopped hearing from him. She tried contacting him but couldn’t. He disappeared for a while.
Then she found out from his relatives that he had just gotten married, to a distance cousin.
She told me that after she recovered from the shock, she realised that she had come to love him then. But with him being married, she backed off. When she finally got in touch with him, he was apologetic, but it was a marriage arranged by his parents.
It took her some years to recover and to fall in love again.
While driving at 100KM/H at Jalan Tun Razak..
ARGHHHH MY CARRRR is SWERRVING TO THE LEFT UNCONTROLLABLY!!
CARS ARE EVERYWHREEE ZOMMGGG
After signaling frantically, I managed to stop by the side of the road. I got out from my car to find my front left tyre punctured and coming off its rim.
Wasting no time, I took out my rusty tools and my unused jack to change my tyre. Suddenly, an Indian man stopped to check on me. His name is Raj. He works as a mechanic in one of the workshops in Jalan Ipoh.
He offered to help me, with a small sum of RM20, to change my tyre – which I agreed.
Raj was telling me that there are not many honest mechanics around. Just on the other side of the road, he said he saw one mechanic lied to an elderly man that his Honda City cannot be fixed and had to be towed to the workshop because the tyre could not be removed. Raj said that its absolute bullshit and what the dishonest mechanic did was to squeeze more money from the elderly man.
As Raj got my spare tyre out, he realised that it’s flat as well.
Raj: This tyre is flat, did you pump any air in it before?
Me: ooo…shii.ttt..…I’ve never…..
Since the day I bought my car…
7 YEARS AGO!!!
Raj: ooo, we can’t use the tyre. We gotta head to the petrol kiosk to pump the tyre!
Raj: That’s gonna costs you RM60
I had no choice but to agree. 10 minutes later, Raj came back with my inflated tyre and proceeded to fix the same.
Minutes later, my car is up and running! Raj packed everything for me and gave me some advice on car maintenance.
I gave Raj a tip of RM10 for his good service.
Raj is on call 24 hours. If you need assistance around Klang Valley, you may call him at 016 637 6574.
The Mall, situated across from Pan Pacific Hotel on Jalan Putra, used to be a popular shopping mall in the 80’s and early 90’s. Back then, there was no Midvalley Mega Mall, nor SUnway Pyramid. It was THE place to shop, with Yaohan departmental store.
I remember I loved the stationery from Japan, when I was younger. But they were so expensive! My mum would never allow me to buy too many of them. Sniff.
They now have Parkson Grand instead. With its bright lights, everyone’s complexion looks horrible – every crater, scare and pockmark can been seen ever so clearly. I walk around with my head bent low whenever I’m in Parkson – don’t want you people to see my ugly scars……. though I rarely shop at Parkson, anyway. ;D
Kenny Rogers along a corridor (?) …. which reminds me of McDonald’s at Carrefour Subang. ;D

PvD is renowned as one of the hardest working artists, with sold-out tours that cross each continent, headline spots at every major festival, and a hugely successful recording career. Born in Eisenhuettenstadt, East Germany, Paul van Dyk grew up in communist East Berlin. Upon crossing the Berlin wall, the music bug quickly caught on and in the early 1990’s Paul van Dyk was spinning regularly at various clubs in Berlin before releasing his first album 45 RPM in 1994. But it wasn’t until the release of his second album Seven Ways which catapulted him into the Top 100, followed by the release of his hit single “For An Angel,” which began to earn him praise across the globe. By the time Paul van Dyk released Out There & Back in 2000, it became clear that the Berlin-based musician had far more to offer than his signature club sets and remixes that had already defined him as one of the most influential DJs and producers of all time. His first compilation mix CD Politics of Dancing was released in 2001, followed by Global in 2003 – a DVD which illustrates his own experiences traveling the world.
As a Grammy nominated artist and globally acclaimed DJ and Producer Paul van Dyk continues to dominate the electronic music charts and appears at the pinnacle of every Top DJ list across the globe. PvD, as his fans have nicknamed him, is currently ranked the World’s No. 1 DJ by DJ Magazine’s “Top 100 DJs poll” for the second consecutive year. His new original album ‘In Between’ will be in stores August 2007.
This year he won the International Dance Music Award (IDMA) for Best Euro DJ. Previously, PvD won four IDMAs in 2006: Best Global DJ, Best NUNRG/Euro Track, Best Producer and Best Mix Compilation for The Politics fo Dancing 2. In 2005, PvD received a Grammy nomination for Best Dance/Electronic Album for his original album Reflections. In addition, PvD was voted “America’s Favorite DJ” for 2004 and 2005 by BPM Magazine and was the big winner at the 2004 Dancestar Awards, taking home 3 awards: Best International DJ, Best Event and Best Music in a Commercial (Motorola). Paul van Dyk was voted “Best Music Maker” by DJ Magazine, received the “Best International DJ Award” at the 1999 Music wards in London, was named “Best International DJ” by Ministry of Sound Magazine, and Mixmag elected him as “Man of the Year”.
Aside from his musical activity, Paul van Dyk has always dedicated a significant part of his life to politics and social justice. He most recently received Berlin’s Medal of Honor (Landesverdienstorden) in recognition of his work with Ruckenwind, a partnership schceme with the German Red Cross that helps poor and disadvantaged children in Berlin. He joins a distinguished list of arts and political establishment figures with this honor.

xes.cx forum discussion
Once upon a time, a girl just finished high school and had her first job in a bookstore. She was quite shy and never mingled with boys, due to her conservative upbringing. One day, her colleague introduced her to a guy, and all she did was say, “Hi” and walked away.
She didn’t think there was anything about it until a few months later, her colleague asked her if she knew that the guy was interested in her. She refused to believe. Her colleague said, “Look outside at the football field. Haven’t you noticed the guy waiting for you under the tree all the time?”
[Sounds like a stalker to me!]
Gradually, she paid attention and indeed, she noticed that the guy would always be there every evening!
A few weeks later, the guy started going into the bookstore just to catch a glimpse of her. She never noticed until her colleague pointed it out to her. He’d buy a pen every other day, just to have her serve him so he could say, “Hi.”
She never thought anything about it until one day, he caught her after work and confessed his feelings for her. He said he loved her, and would like to have a relationship with her.
She told him not to say such a thing. If you really loved me, she said, I’m sure you’d get a better job and improve yourself. Which he did, anyway.
He asked her out, but she refused. But he never gave up that eventually, taking pity on him, she agreed. But she said to keep it short, as she didn’t want her father to get the wrong idea. (She told me that those days, it wasn’t polite for boys to go out with girls without introducing themselves to the girls’ father. Well, in her case, anyway.)
Somehow her father saw her that night, but never said a thing to her.
To be continued… ;D
