Reminiscing Old Times

I didn't get to catch up with lollies during the bloggers gathering at EE-Kay-Aah on Tuesday because uncharacteristically, my schedule was fully occupied for the first 3 days of the week. So we made an alternative arrangement to meet up today.

We set the venue as KLSentral as it is very convenient for us the Elektrik people and also MissKLSentral. I took the LRT with gartblue, pretty concerned when I saw her 1.5 inch heels which she assured me would not pose a problem for her at all walking from the office towards the LRT station. So there we were at this very Irish-ly named Kopitiam, at 12:45pm (the agreed time was 12:30) and staring at each other, guarding furiously the huge table with a not-so-discrete signboard saying Reserved for More than 5 People. Of course we had to wait for lollies who came about 15 minutes later to fill up the numbers while deflecting all the attempts from waiters and customers alike from our firmly-established territory right in front of main door which will usher in the hot humid air every time those uncivilised people left the huge door open upon entering.

MissKLSentral had an office function so she came much later at around 1:40pm. By then, the chit-chats had gone into full swing. It has been a while since we had this kind of conversation which was a regular feature on a normal weekday err, 5 years ago when all of us were working in the same department. Among the issues that came up was about this signboard when JackJack needed to ease himself, looking for the toilet. Read from afar, the dark blue arrows on a black background is totally invisible and it seemed to read Toilet Information. Ah well, that was the sort of things we chatted about anyway.

All in all, it was good fun. It was nice to be relive the old days once in a while. The last time I met KLSentral was the last time lollies met her during her last summer anyway. Of course, gartblue is still working in the same office but I have to practically walk the whole breadth of the building to get to her place because our rooms are simply at the opposite ends of the buildings and it would burn a reasonable amount of calories to make the trip...
