Don't let him stop me.


i was looking at the brochure my colleague emailed me. Yes, we are planning for Taman Negara. We had a plain talk on our way back from penang and the without even realising it the conversation became a detailed itenerary plan. Guess it works that way, when you plan things too much it will not likely to happen. But don't be surprised a casual meeting over teh tarik at mamak stall can turn into a million dollar business proposal. And this is no juta-juta business proposal, just a girls' week-out-in-a-jungle plan (unless Josh Hartnett wants to tag along!). It's supposed to be my trip last year. But due to "certain" circumstances which i don't think i want to mention here, it didn't happen. But it is always going to be in my travelling journal list besides to climb Mt Kinabalu. Something that i know i have to do before i die. Unless Josh Hartnett doesn't want me to. eheheh! Everytime i encounter friends or people who's just got back from these 2 places i'll be cursing to myself.. damn! why i have not been there?? So, here i am.. it is going to happen now. The right time will never be the right time unless you push for it, and you will never find the right people unless you search for them. (Josh, you are free to tag along.. expenses on me!)

The package looks good but we're also eyeing for other deals as well. Then i remembered a
"friend" who is also into this business. Shall i ask for his favor? Will it be a wise decision? So I decided to see him, brought a cup of chocolate brownie as a "pengeras."

The first few minutes of conversation went so smooth. He was talking and explaining about activities and stuffs and i was so into the conversation until 15 minutes passed. That strictly-friends look and that gestures of his suddenly changed and it made me realised this was a mistake and i shall just proceed with the brochure i read before. I know that look, i can still remember that warm gestures. And I'm not paying for something i might regret indulging to. I guess friends should remain friends.. and memories should remain in the grave. Guess the brownie really acted as a "pengeras" to him. God knows what we've gone through, it's for me to know and for him to find out..

.. back to my office and went through the brochure details again.. stay focus!period.


current mood: full of regrets.

Besides the actual flight, planning the trip is probably the worst part... Thanks for stopping by my weblog, by the way...
