People: Zahid & Van

It seems like everyone is flocking into KK for holidays, coincidentally during the period when I am stationed here for my project.

Just a few weeks ago, I managed to meet up with Zahid and Van, both friends from my varsity days.

Coincidences in meeting them have been unbelievable. Take March for example, when I just arrived in KK...

Doing the obligatory "Hi what's up, I'm back and in KK for work" messages to all my friends, I get a reply back from Zahid saying "Do you want to meet up in KK this weekend?".

I called Zahid immediately upon receiving the message, and apparently they were going to be in Kota Kinabalu for a vacation! We did eventually meet up, and had quite a decent time catching up.

*Thanks for dinner guys!

That's not it...

Van and Zahid were on a long distance relationship for 5 years due to work commitments, where she was in Australia, and him in Malaysia. On 2 other occasions, my break in-between projects back home (Kuala Lumpur) coincided with Van's annual week-long visit of Zahid. That one time, I was alighting at a train station that I don't normally go to, and voila ~ there they were coming out from turnstiles at the opposite end of the station!

I can only let my imagination run wild, as to where we'll be meeting next. The Kota Kinabalu experience was certainly one of the more memorable ones. That's why it's on this blog. :)

Sure does...it's so strange. You're just walking around, minding your own business then some person from your past says, "Hey, aren't you (insert name)? Oh my gosh! Long time no see! How are you?"
