Threesome Dinner & The Dog

Min has been away in the US for three weeks or so, and she missed my housewarming gathering as she flew off on that very day. Tonight she swing my place after work for dinner, together with her beau Ted and beautiful, beautiful puppy named Bala.

Why Bala? Because Bala is jet black. It is a she, and when she hides under my bed, you can’t see her!

Dinner was a low key affair of Portuguese chicken, racks of lamb ribs, briyani rice, mixed salad and tom yum soup. The combination was delectable, especially with the delicious bottle of wine the couple has brought along.

As I tried to share with Min what happened to me since the night she flew to Los Angeles (that lucky girl!), I was stumped for words. Where do I start? Where do I end? What should I emphasise on? Which detail should I neglect?

My story was so abrupt with its twist and turn, I stopped myself from continuing and stared at Min, flabbergasted. I was not doing my tale justice. My phrases lacked punches, my choice of words lacked wisdom.

But, I told myself, does it really matter what happened? Does it make me any less of an interesting – or experienced – person if I do not put down what I have went through in words?

Unlike some people I have the misfortune to meet, I don’t justify my actions with the world. Nor I see the need to seek for the upper hand in life and establish that with everyone.

So I stopped myself, smiled to her, and said, right now, at that very moment, I am happy. I have many people to be thankful to.

And some of them will be reading this entry. For that, my friends, I thank you!
