Strangers

Bahija and I had lunch in a coffee shop. The cina coffee shop type that has no a/c. Bahija came first and she could not find a table so she share a table with a man. This man looks like a blue collar worker. When I came, he was chatting with Bahija.. very friendly guy.

What surprised me was that he kept on commenting and interjected our conversations. He commented about food in this coffee shop, said it's nice.. and then started asking me personal questions like what do I do, where do I stay, am I married, how many kids and at the end he even asked me for my telephone number so that he can one day asked me out for yum char and consult me on PC related matters. On the other hand, we also learned what he do for a living (he sells spare parts), where he stays, the reason he's in this neighbourhood, etc.

The whole thing is kinda weird. How could one stranger asked so many things.. and he seems harmless but yet, why asked for telephone number. I have a suspicious that he's interested in Bahija and would probably one day called me and asked about her. Of course, Bahija doesn't think so and think that he's probably stalking me. Why would he? I am not as good looking as Anti-Ringgit - eh, AR, you are not the only person kena stalked ok! :P

Anyway, let's see what happened. I told Bahija that I'd probably not pick up any phone from him. Bahija seems to think he can be a potential 'prospect' for me to talk to him about Buddhism.. LOL .. who knows, maybe it is fated that way.

  1. yeah man, both of us instantly taught of him as 'prospect' :) ...anyway, take things as it is, I've heard many good stories that a simple act can make a great difference to others. Though we joked about him, yet I am also happy that Ringgit was friendly and entertained him well ( and not muka masam and cold ), who knows, today, he had one of the best lunch ever leh. heeeee
