People: Gabriel Liew

Remember my coincidental meet with Zahid and Van? Now dude... seriously, this post is about another even more bizarre coincidence.

As I had mentioned, I need to make my way to Australia to get my residency officiated. This is what they term a "first entry" into Australia. So I took leave from work, and hopped on the plane to Perth from Kota Kinabalu.

While waiting at the airport, I kind of made out the figure of someone in the distance that looked like.... OMG

GABRIEL LIEW!!!!!!

This person used to be my housemate when we were studying pre-university in 1996, but lost contact after that year.

Sharon and me have talked about him over the years, but no joy as far as tracking him down.

Who would've known that after almost 10 years... As fate has it, we meet at a time when I am only passing through KK, and on the first trip that Gabriel has made it back to his hometown of KK for the first time in 5 years! He is now living in Perth.

Talk about coincidence.

You know what girls... at this rate, I might as well be buying lottery tickets. I met (again) another long lost friend of 15 years TODAY! Will be on the blog soon. :)

mate, I think you will end up in Australia, and bump into a few more friends! Enjoy the adventure! Korea is not the same without your commentary!!

Yeah, it's how funny things turn out to be.

Whenever you are in an unusual place, look out for something familiar!!
