I was sipping a cup of latte while waiting for friends when jodoh came a calling. Only it wasn’t that simple. The first time I laid eyes on my other half, I was annoyed beyond comprehension with his sexist remark. I was browsing a copy of Far Eastern Economic Review in hand when Jefree and few others were the first to reach Dome KLCC that fateful evening.
Shortly after being formally introduced to each other, he had this to say:
“Eh, apa budak perempuan baca magazine macam nih? Bacalah Vogue ke, Cosmo ker !” The statement was followed by cynical laughters from him and his clan.
Oh, I hated his guts back then; I still hate it at times now. But recently, on November 24th, we celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary. Such is life.
Postscript: I am mourning the death of Far Eastern Economic Review which will no longer be in publication.
