Here's looking at you kid

My new friend ..hehe

Yeay! I made a new friend today. Well technically, we were already friends since a couple of weeks ago. This is the era of the internet after all. I first noticed her after she posted an amazingly insightful poem about a mutual friend on her colourful blog (will have to ask for pointers on blog designing soon). From then on I was hooked. She has a talent that I find very rare in others, the ability to move me through Malay prose (I know it sounds really uppity coming from a purebred Malay like myself but it is not intended as such, I am comfortable with both languages but it is much easier for me to 'feel' in English- prob because it was the language of my teen years).

Anyway, initially I just visited her blog from time to time to enjoy her writing. When I finally decided to kick start this blog, I linked mine to hers. We became Facebook buddies and even started a great project together. Just to prove how small the world actually is, she also happens to be my father's ex-student. A fact she did not realize until I mentioned it a few days ago (I thought my dad's name was a dead give-away..hehe).

Not the real picture, we were too busy eating and chatting to remember to snap photos

Today, all the UKM wondergirls went to Serdang for what was touted to be some excellent cendol. So we decided to stop by UPM to ask Zakiah along. It was great meeting her in person although I salute her for putting up with us. We were quite a rowdy bunch (just imagine 7 girls on a sugar rush). The cendol itself wasn't as good as I thought it would be but today was more than just a day of slurping shaved ice, coconut milk and little green doughy bits.. today was about new beginnings. Welcome Zakiah! Like Humphrey Bogart said on Casablanca "I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship".
