I started my morning dull - I woke up a bit after the sun rise (the J@pan army came to attack hehehee..) yesterday. I didn't feel good when I woke up late. My head spin a bit. But, I didn't make myself bogged down with the mood. I continued with what ever task I had to do, as usual.
After completing the housechores, I hooked myself on the internet, read the online news and checked my email. Messages from the yahoogroups that I subscribed to, okay... a few comments for the blogs, okay..., fr1endster updates, okay...
My eyes stopped when I saw a message from fr1endster friends updates. The name! the name that I've been looking for almost 10 years. I saw her name - Ij**!. I hope it was her. I clicked at the picture. I scrutinized the face. She has not changed a bit. She was just like before (but she was holding a baby now), when we were together in Ind1ana University of Bl0omington, at the age of 21. Well, I did contact her a few years after we came back from the States but I never met her in person until now. After that, we lost contact. I didn't know where she's been. I asked a few friends but nobody knew. I was frustrated...
Yesterday, upon seeing Ij** on fr1endster, I sent her a message. I waited for a reply. Not soon enough, though. A few hours after that, she replied my message. She was so excited (I could read from the words that she used). I was so touched when she wrote something like her doa dimakbulkan. I was flattered when she mentioned I was the best roommate she ever had. The happy tears dropped like rain in S@udi a few months ago. A feeling of honored and appreciated. It surely feels good when your friend remember all the good things about you.
I finally met my exroomate (though its only in cyber) whom I used to share my happiness and grievances. She used to be our (the housemates) driver since she had a driver's license. We went to an apple farm in summer with other friends and were crazy picking, eating apples and taking lots and lots of pictures. Only then that we knew there were so many kind of apples in this world (I thought we only have a C@meron Highlands and W@shington Apple hehehee..)
She even commented on my picture in fr1endster that the way I posed was like how I used to pose in the apple farm heheee... I haven't changed the way I'm standing and never realized until she prompted me. During our college years, we used to discuss, how would we look after we get married and have kids. We laughed at ourselves imagining we're holding a baby with a motherly look. Now, our fantasy has become a reality. I'm happy with my 3 kids and she's delighted handling all her 4 kids. We are mothers now!! Hehee..
I just realize that I missed many other friends too. I have so many friends since I attended 3 different primary schools, 3 secondary schools and a univeristy. I remember when I was 14, I went to my kindergarten in J3ngka (I went to visit an aunt who lived there). I was accompanying my little brother to play at the playground there when someone said,
"Awak ni Nor Raneeza kan!"
I stunted and turned my head towards that voice. It was a young boy who was about my age. I couldn't recall his name but I think he was my classmate when I was in standard 1. I left to a different school in G0mbak when I was in standard 3. It was after 6 years and he still remember my name - my full name! I thought, I was a very low profile person during my school years. I didn't expect anybody to remember me. But he did. I felt embarrass (malu sebab ada orang kenal). I quickly asked my brother to stop playing and left the playground.
I really missed all my friends. How can I get in touch with them - all of them? Should I do jejak kasih by advertising myself in the newspaper? Hehehehe... *takkan la kot...*
