Scene: Giant Hypermarket, Setiawangsa
Time: 5 p.m.
Actresses: Me & the usual adek cashier who sits at the first counter of Giant Setiawangsa everyday.
Cashier: “Hmmm, Kakak selalu beli susu & pampers anak akak kat sini kan?”
Me: (a bit stunned but I answered nonetheless) “Aah, sebab senang, dekat dengan rumah.”
Cashier: “Bukan ke Kakak selalu beli susu Enfalac A+ dengan Mami Poko untuk boy?”
Me: (okay, I thought – what’s wrong with this chirpy bird today?) “Ya…”
Cashier: Sekarang Akak dah tukar ke?
I looked down at the counter and I was horribly shocked when I saw 3 boxes of dumex mamigold formula instead of Enfalac A+. I surreptitiously glanced at the diapers, oh my god! I picked Mami Poko for girls! I have a son for crying outloud! I quickly said thank you to the good cashier, dashed out of the que and shamefully walked back to the aisle to exchange the items. The people at the counter gave me a snide look. They must have thought that I am mad.
I knew it. This must happened because today I finally met the elusive Clark Gable of Pulau Duyong at Cafe 14. After spending good two hours with him, I am a tad heady. He is as intoxicating as his writings. I urge fellow lady bloggers to meet this man. I am bereft of words. Still hugely affected seven hours thereafter.
Mr.Clark, I will reread Gone with the Wind tonight in your honour.
*Husband, if you are reading this (which I doubt), fear not – you are still the best looking man I have ever met*
