Six Degrees of Separation

Who do you think you see when you see this cute lil boy who came to my parents' house yesterday for Raya...??

I saw him, Calvin, of Calvin & Hobbes...

Entah-entah si Calvin dengan the cutie-pie ada bau-bau bacang, mana tau?

Comeyl, kan??? hehe

And this is 'Calvin' a.k.a Firas, and the elder sister Nurin. My mates' kids.

Tis a funny story, their parents and I.

Masa Edinburgh dulu, the father, Syahriz a.k.a Tan suka menepek kat rumah aku. Makan apa aje yang aku and housemates aku masak. Semua sedap (ye ler kalau tak dia tak leh jejak lagi kat rumah kami!). Paksa kami keluar dengan dia kalau dia bosan. Even cuba nak tackle one of my housemates.

Tak alih-alih, one day we both found out that his paternal grandfather, whom Tan's very very close with, is my dad's Ayah Angkat since I was, like, a year old? And Tan & I never met each other till we were both in Edinburgh.

Smmmmmalllllllll world, innit.

And then, we both got back to M'sia. I think he got back first, 'coz I had to complete my Adv.Dip.

But eversince coming home in 1999, he's never missed visiting my parents and I in Bangi for Raya. As much as aku banyak betul kesalahan ke dia, he's one of those Edinburgh friends (the other being Kak Fairuz) who treasures the friendship like nobody's business. TAK PERNAH miss visit my parents for Raya.

Ish, even aku pun tak tahu rumah parents dia kat Kajang kat mana. Teruk kan akak...?

Anyhow... the world became smmmmalllerrrrrr, when one fine Raya, he came a-visiting with his new bride...and to my surprise, is my old highschoolmate from Jasin, Nora!!!

Lerrrr!

Aku tak pi wedding dia dulu. Tak ingat naper la kan. Tapi Nora citer masa dok belek Tan's old albums, she came across quite a bit of my photos and asked her husband, you kenal dia ni???

Naper? Tan tanya. Anxious kot, takut Nora ingat aku ni aweks lama dia, kan.

Ni F@z my old schoolmate!!! Nora exclaimed.

And Tan went, Lerrrr!!!

hehehehe.

Ini baru satu cerita '6 Degrees of Separation' aku. Ada baaaaaanyak lagi. Boleh buat buku sebenarnya. Akak tak leh wat jahat langsung, tawww.

And I'm sure you have a lot of '6 degrees' stories to share, too!!!

Nurin & Firas

memang kan, sometime you can be surprised. just like a close friend of mine in Penang turned out to be my wife's auntie's good friend. terkejut jugak....

supposingly, six degrees of separation says that you somehow knows someone by six degrees of separation only. did you read my post about it? :)

June....a.k.a Yay... is that you? hey, watchadoin here? Camne kenal RKM? Salah train...? how on earth did you remember that story- took me a few minutes to recall- it was actually our last train ride to CD airport Paris. We caught the wrong train with the possibility of missing our flight- but all ended well.

Eh RKM... itu semua cerita lama zaman tak matang dan berhingus... kirim salam to Tan and his kids are sooo cute. Memang rupa calvin and hobes (ironic that its Zila's fav. comic... hehehheh).
