Monthly Meet Up

Just got back from IOI Mall...

Had my monthly meet up with my really close friend during varsity years...Ms Zalina...or affectionately known as Zack...it has been some sort of routine for us to meet up in IOI Mall once a month (non specific date) just to update each other with our life...it was kinda cool and great to actually talk to someone that had known you for years about anything and everything...aside from my quarterly meet ups with Ady...

I don't know how we started to be close friends even back then during the varsity years...but one of the reason back then was because she was the sole and only person in the whole USM that i can actually speak to in English...its like some sort of training myself to speak in English...broken pon broken lah...at least boleh prektis english aku yang hampagas tu...still nowhere compared to Ms Hayati's level lah...that one i have to pull up white flag lah...

And i don't know...is it really a typical malay attitude that can't stands when they heard other people converse in language other than our mother tongue...i still remember back then we got all this sort of comments such as 'sejak bila malaysia ada salji' lah...'bontot hitam perasan mat saleh lah'...'tak patriotik lah'...'melayu perasan bagus lupa diri' lah...and a lot more...at first i just hold up my tongue from giving any comments regarding the matter...i mean like...hello...we were conversing with each other and you are not included in the conversation kot...so do spare the need to try to make us feel bad just because we speak in second language...i still remember that there was this one time that i think i had enough of the nonsense and i just simply with sweet innocent tone commented back...~minta maaf la sebab MUET kitorang band 6 and ko band 2 ajer~...which was enough to make this particular one girl shut her mouth up and reserved her comments for the rest of the varsity years...sentappp kot...hahaha...pueh ati aku...itu dia tak dengar aku prektis aku punya french dengan Ady and Francois (friend of Ady who happens to be French) lagi tu...but truth to be told...i speak horrible french...actually i can't speak french...both of them taught me phrase by phrase on simple conversation in French...but still...it sounds totally horrendous and ridiculous...sure i will make the french fainted for being able to slaughter their language...first class...i think only Francois can understand me...even Ady have an extreme difficulty of understanding my French...hahaha...

Anyway...nowadays we still very much converse in English...but as usual...being malay...its the mixed between each language...it felt good to meet up with Zack that i had known for more than 8 years (OMG that is a long time) and just chat over a drink and dinner...we can be utterly silly...Zack currently working as a quantity surveyor in one of the major construction company in KL...but despite how both of us has grown from our varsity years...there's still that essence of ourselves that really defined who we were before...that never changes...

p/s:my english is still pretty much broken...amponnnn...

if u had with ur English conversation, I had mine which was "aktiviti berpeleseran dengan motor". I ignored them entirely.

barbarians memang perangai sengal macam tuh :) takleh tengok orang cakap english sikit, lepastuh nak kutuk-kutuk. sebab diaorang inferiority complex. hehehe.

tak semestinya boleh berbahasa inggeris lupakan bahasa kebangsaan.
