Last Post Of 2007
I just came back from Medan last Friday. When I reached home it was already quite late. Medan was quite interesting. There, I met some friends and chatted.
One of them (Let's call him Ron) said something interesting. I met him in Church the Sunday before Christmas. I sat next to him in Church while there were some youths in front practicing for some Christmas dance. This was what he said (I will translate all to English).
Ron: Did you see that?
Ron: The sparkle in her eyes. (Sinar mata).
He nudged his head in the direction of a particular lady.
Me: Her? I didn't realize it. Let me see.
I looked in her direction and she was busy practicing some dance moves.
Ron: So do you see it?
I tried to change the subject.
Me: How about you? Do you see anyone whose eyes sparkle when she looks at you?
I suspect there is one. But he refused to admit it.
Ron: Hey...the lights above are kinda bright ain't it?
Me: How do you know that she has that sparkle?
Ron: Well, I can observe.
Me: What if you are wrong?
Ron: Well, I am hardly wrong.
Me: What if I walk up to her and ask "Hey, according to Ron, he says that you like me." and she says that it isn't so? Won't it be pretty embarrassing?
Ron: Hm...well maybe not 100% right...it's about 80% right.
Ron: Well, if you talk to her, I am sure she will like you.
Wha...he's so confident about it.
Me: So why do you say that?
Ron: She's similar to you...quiet...able to mix with people despite their social status.
In case you don't know this girl is considered "high profile" because of her accomplishments. This girl (from what I can see) is pretty quiet. Anyway, we chatted about other things after that.
A few days before I went back to Singapore, there was another Church service. There, my mother said something.
Mum: Why don't you talk to her?
She's referring to the same girl Ron was talking about.
Me: But what should I say?
Mum: Well, just try. Maybe talk about school or something. She's looking over at your direction you know.
Yup, she's looking at my direction. I guess my friend Ron maybe right. Why maybe? Well, until it's confirm, everything's just speculation.
Anyway, that's about it.
I checked my results for my first semester of my first year over at Medan on the 28th and surprise surprise...I didn't know what to say when I saw my results. Overall, I am quite satisfied with my results.
It's the last day of the year and I wish everyone a happy year ahead :)
