Kind Strangers

...................... A story about how I nearly missed my flight.......................

Today I was supposed to catch a 4.20 pm flight to Kota Kinabalu for the Chinese New Year Holidays, and despite waking up at 6.00 am and packing everything by 9 am and being completely dressed up by 11 am, I still somehow managed to leave the house late and end up nearly missing the flight. Here's how:

Kak Liza [another picture] called around 11.30 am, just as I was about to leave, and told me that she was coming over to her shop (which is next to my house) and that she'd like to have lunch together. Well, thinking that we could just have a quick bite over at her shop, I agreed, making sure to remind her of course, that I had to leave by one o'clock at the latest. But when she arrived at around 12.15, I went to her shop and found that her shop was closed and she was planning to eat somewhere else. Alright, fine. A little bit of a rushed lunch, but fine. We could make it back before one right? Wrong!.
