I used to to do this a lot when I studied in Penang a few years back. Just hop on a bus and go straight to a shopping mall. Yes. Alone.
However, this afternoon, i didn't go alone to the shopping mall. the whole family went,but we go our separate ways since it is too troublesome to walk with people who have many-many directions. the part where I-wait-for-u-and-u-wait-for-me...is so tiring.
so, I went my own way. It was quite crowded in Karamunsing just now. Banyak orang la bah, ada main tu tong-tong chang lagi tu-bising!.
I was in watson, walking up and down the aisle looking for one particular shampoo. Then, one guy i noticed seems to be playing hide and seek nearby. *ish, apa ni*. He doesn't look familiar so i didn't pay much attention as i was busy looking for my shampoo.
Then he came near me as I was just walking out of Watson.
Then I looked at him. *in my head--> eee. who the hell is this fella?*
"Saturang saja ka?" /are you alone
Still puzzled and don't know how to react because I was thinking ~do i know this guy/long lost friend or whatever~
I just smile and walk away. Clutching my handbag tighter than ever. Went out of Watson, and just walk into the crowd where the tong-tong chang is still performing.
I just don't know where the rest of my family is.
Looked back, no sight of that stranger. Huuuu..Maybe just false alarm. Paranoid me *slap-slap*
I went to 1st floor, saw my sisters there in Signature. They were still busy with their stuff, so I wander off alone la.
Then. AGAIN! I saw that fella. With the same "Hi!" and eerie smile and gaze.
WTF...get away from me! You weirdo!
I walked to my sisters and asked them to finish their shopping quickly.
