My long lost 'bro'

It's been at least 5 years I haven't see Khoon Meng since he graduated from SMK Jitra. I was in Form 3 at that time. I knew that he went to Taylor's for A-level and University of Nottingham and now working as a mechanical engineer in Coventry.

I thought we could only see each other when both of us back to our home town during Chinese New Year but I met him unexpectely in University of Nottingham Malaysian Games last month. I participated in the tennis competition and he's just helping his friends around. We had just some simple chat as it was quite late at that time and I need to rush to the bus to come back to Birmingham.

You know when you meet someone from your home town, used to hang around together and lost contact for so many years, in a foreign country, that kind of feeling is ............. (bad vocab.. dunno what word to describe..)

Last night, when I was waiting for this bunch of unpunctual EE course mates for dinner at Malaysian Delight. I saw a familiar face standing outside. It was Khoon Meng. I was like how could it be so ngam. When we don't meet, we don't see each other for 5-6 years. Now, after one month, I got to see him again. He was actually meeting a few friends for dinner as well last night.

We used to play badminton together, trained kao kao in the school team, had roti canai together after the training session. And, his classmates used to say that I look like his younger brother but I don't really think so. hehe..

Ada sama?
