I took it as a compliment...

A few years ago, I kinda enjoyed walking alone to Mahkota Parade and just loitering around the mall because I got nothing else better to do... Well, actually, I did have better things to do like finishing up assignments and studying for my upcoming tests but being a teenager, I preferred to just hang out which was not a good thing to do... So kids, don't do what I did... 

Anyway, getting back to the story, during one of my pathetic hanging-out-alone-in-Mahkota-Parade-because-everybody-else-has-a-freakin-girlfriend sessions (yeah, at this moment, I was still single), a guy came to me and said "Hi..."... As much as I could remember, he was wearing a very tight looking jeans, a striking red t-shirt and a gray cardigan... Didn't remember what shoes he was wearing... Didn't pay much attention on the shoes... But his hair was awesome... It's like spiky but a bit nerdy and cool and... It was cool... Pretty cool... If I could, I would do the same hairstyle as him... Yeah, definitely... He smelled good too... Owh yeah, he's Chinese... and that explains the hair...

In response to his friendly Chinese accent greeting, I just smiled (typical me)... "What are u doing here?", he asked... "Just hanging around...", I replied... It was the first time I had an English conversation with a total stranger... "Are u skipping school?"... that particular question made me lift an eye-brow and let out a "huh??"... "Are u skipping school?", he repeated the question... I guess he assumed that I was a school kid maybe because I was (still am) kinda short and young looking despite the facial hair and he asked that kind of question because it was 12 noon, Tuesday... "No, I'm studying at UiTM... Today got no class..."

"Wanna grab lunch?"

Bamm! He landed a tricky one... My mind took a while to process the inquiry... He, who was a total stranger, asked me if I wanna have lunch with him... 

"No thanks...", my mind told me not to... 

"Can we just go for a walk or something?"

"Ermm... No... I prefer... I prefer to walk alone..."... Shit, at this moment, I kinda stuttered... 

"Okey... Where are u heading?"

Before he could finish his line, I walked away... Slowly at first, then gradually I picked up pace... and without turning back, I went straight home... 

I wrote this because I saw the same guy today at Jaya Jusco Melaka while having lunch with my girlfriend... Still the same hair, but this time he's wearing a damn cool black jacket... I love stylish jackets... I think that's why I noticed him... dam dam dam dudut~ dudut~
