I got back yesterday. Gained about 2 kgs from the oyster binge. Now this is the problem, a one-kilogramme bagful of fresh oysters cost about RM8 in Kota Bharu. The day I arrived at KB, my youngest aunt brought in amazing bagsful of oysters, and we did a huge oyster fest… I think I had about 6 plates of oysters in a day. The day I returned, my mum decided to sprint to the local market to get another three bags, and yesterday, Eric, Mum and I had more oysters (about a kilogramme of oysters between the three of us). That, plus the huge seafood dinner at Restoran Phuket, Wakaf Bharu (imagine having four huge prawns each, a plateful of calamari and lots and lots of crabs and fish…). Urm. This is why I'm getting fatter.
I'm no longer unemployed, by the way. I can call myself a freelance editor, but I'm also going to start working with a company again. Sigh. So much for being a free little bird. I suppose I'm kinda young to go freelance, so the job's a welcome gift, plus the fact that I'm going to work only 3 days a week sounds pretty exciting. Of course it's still going to be work and all that, so I'll try my best to do my best… yeah, things like that.
My room's still in a havoc. I was supposed to do a huge spring clean today, but I woke up late, and then I remember I have not checked my mail for days. A certain friend's sister's birthday is coming up, and I decided to send a birthday wish to her on the mailing list. She's supposed to be my friend too you see, we could talk pretty well to each other until something not so good happened not too long ago. At recent festivals I've been sending her wish-well greetings on sms, but I haven't received any reply from her. Sigh. Isn't it awful how things can turn sour? Gosh, I know I did your brother wrong, but I hurt from it too… and I think in the process I did you wrong as well… but I really wish that we can be friends still, I think a thinking adult (now that you're turning 18, it's a prelim celebratory season to adulthood) ought to place friendship above all else… so Happy Birthday from me. Sincerely, yours, etc.
He reads this blog, I know, and I hope he'll tell her that I mean every New Year greeting that I send to her on sms.
