The Sequel (KPP : 1986 # 2)

Alahai...naik segan lah pulak nak sambung cerita... But, there might be somebody out there who'll hire a hit-man to kill me if I didn't finish this. So, here we go again.

The first message from Ayah was more or less a "Hello, how are you" kind of message, and him congratulating me for being in the Oxbridge Programme, etc. And I remember replying telling him how surprised (or rather - shocked!) I was that he was neither in the Oxbridge nor the Ivy League Programme. The thing was - there were a few of bebudak Sekolah Melayu KK in the same group as I was, and I overheard them talking amongst each other as to how surprised they were that Ayah, and a few other budak terrer Sekolah Melayu KK were not in either Programme. (They didn't know about the going ons between Ayah and I then, so, memang no filters whatsoever lah when they were talking about him in front of me! Nasib baik it was all good things about Ayah which came out of them. If not, I would have formed a different picture of him then!)

I remember Ayah's reply to that message, stating that : YES, he was upset and frustrated, but he was okay, as he believed there was a reason for everything. He said he was settling down well in his Group and getting along well with his classmates. I remember him writing about his classmates in one of his earlier messages - a melting pot of guys and girls from different schools, and I think Ayah clicked within no time with Sh*dy (Mr. Engineer), B*gg, Az*in and Az**in who later ALSO became our loyal part time Postmen, together with Ibu, Ab*d and also J*ra (another STF friend who was in his group).

Anyway, for about 10 days or so, the messages were coming and going like nobody's business, and I always looked forward to lunch, tea and dinner time as Ibu would always be bringing messages from Ayah every time after each class/session, and I have to admit, I remember feeling VERY disappointed on a few occasions when Ibu did not have Ayah's messages with her. And all those while, Ayah and I STILL had not met each other...

Of course, there were a few nervous glances between us every now and then, be it when he skodeng me or I skodeng him when we were in our own classrooms in between lessons (Ayah's classroom was on the 2nd Floor of the building, situated diagonally from my classroom on the 1st Floor, by the way. Strategic la jugak. After dua tiga kali skodeng - "Handsome jugak mamat ni!" - a far cry from that mamat posing maut hari tu! Hahaha!)

It was rather difficult for us to meet as our schedules were really packed, and of course, we didn't want other people to know about us! And because nobody knew about us, there were a few guys who were "interested" to know me! I remember one mamat Ivy League by the name of Awang Ikang, and another mamat Oxbridge by the name of Mat Spen (kedua-duanya bukan nama sebenar) who started sending salams to me through my classmates. And the thing about Awang Ikang was - he was pretty persistent! There would be about a dozen of his friends who would wait for me every time I went to class, calling my name continuously, that so much so, I felt quite harassed most of the times!

But I remember that one evening quite clearly. I was walking towards my class with Ab*d after solat Maghrib when Awang Ikang's friends came towards us (about 7-8 of them!) conveying his salam to me, and I was PRETTY scared. Suddenly, out of nowhere, B*gg and Az*in came and called out to Ab*d and me, and in front of Awang Ikang's friends, B*gg gave me a message from Ayah, and very loudly said, "Ni message from Haizal - dia kirim salam kat you!" I think Awang Ikang's friends got the message, and after that, they never bothered me again!

And all those while, Ayah and I STILL had not met each other - eye to eye...

The thing about KPP was, our classes were all held in Section 17, while all the students stayed all over Shah Alam. I was staying in Section 8, while Ayah was staying in Section 6, and every morning we would board the buses before the sun rose to go to our classes, and we would straight away board the buses and go back to our apartments right after our classes ended every night. So, it was quite impossible to have a proper "meeting" with him. And our routine was - Ab*d and I would catch the earliest bus to avoid the crowd, and we would be the first to reach our classroom, and we would just sweep the floor and tidy the place up before everybody else came.

And we were doing just that one morning - sweeping, dusting, re-arranging the tables and chairs, when suddenly, from the corner of my eye, I could see somebody standing in front of our classroom's door. Mind you - it was still dark, and there were not many people around then, and when you see a white thing like that - standing there, not moving, you would think twice before you turn to look, right?! But, somehow, I didn't know how or why, I knew it was Ayah, and I turned to look at the door...

And there he was - looking VERY nervous, not knowing whether to smile or not, or whether to enter the classroom. Ab*d looked at him, and then looked at me, and started walking to the back of the classroom, pretending to do some dusting there - tersengih-sengih! Sporting punyer member...

I was VERY nervous, too, but I smiled at him, and said, "Haizal, kan?" (Duuuhhhhhh???!!!! Hahaha!), and he said, "Yes - Shana, kan?" (Double Duuuuuhhh???!!! And this was after nearly 2 weeks of exchanging messages! Hahaha!) and he offered his hand and we salamed (I know, I know....Haram...but, what to do? Darah muda...and I didn't want to embarrass him by not returning the gesture. Hehehe!) We started talking along the corridor, and I have to say I can't really remember what was said that morning, as I was in Cloud 9...)

The messages between us became more frequent after that. And we were more or less resigned to the fact that come September that year, I would be flying off to the UK, while Ayah would continue his studies under the AAD Programme in Malaysia for two years before flying off to the U.S of A. But, we just didn't want to linger too much on that. We were just seizing the day, and enjoying what was developing between us on a daily basis.

Oh ya...by the end of the first month in KPP, my friends and I, naturally had been skodenging some hunks around us in KPP, and each of us had given nicknames to the Mamats whom we fancied/admired from afar. And we used the names of gemstones to identify those hunks in our conversations so that people would not know who we were talking about. I remember all these Mamats until now, but if ever I were to meet them again, I wouldn't know their real names as I only knew them either as Jade, Emerald, Ruby, Sapphire or Amethyst. As for me, as there was some sort of an understanding that I wasn't supposed to skodeng anybody else, as I already had Ayah (Chewah!!!), Ayah became my "hunk", and we called him "Topaz"...

And you guys know what? I can't really remember when exactly that I told him that we nicknamed him "Topaz", but from that day onwards, whenever he signed cards or letters for me, he would write "Topaz" underneath his signature...And he STILL does it until now...

And I think it was in early February 1986 when we had to move to a new place. Some of the students had to move to Kelana Jaya, and various parts of Shah Alam, but, as fate had it, both Ayah's group and mine were moved to KPP Subang Jaya. I remember feeling very relieved and happy when I found out that he would still be near me...

And it was sometime in February (I think) about a month before SPM results came out when there were rumours that some students from the AAD and A Levels Programmes would be "promoted" to either the Oxbridge or Ivy League Programme, and I was really praying that Ayah would be one of them! And true enough, during lunch one day, Ibu came to me and told me, "Shana, good news! Haizal has been promoted to Ivy League!"

I was SO happy for him, and immediately wrote a message congratulating him. His reply came that afternoon, thanking me for the doa's, and all, and how happy he was and he wrote, "I MIGHT be asked to change and move to one of the Ivy League groups after this for the rest of this English Course, BUT, I'm going to appeal if they would just let me stay in Group 13 until the end of the course". I think he was already feeling very attached and close to his Group 13 friends, and he just didn't want to leave that group. And in Group 13 he stayed until the end of the English Course...

And I guess, THAT was the hikmah and the reason why he was put under the AAD Programme initially, as some of the close friends he made in Group 13 then are still his close friends until now. And of course - had Ayah not been in Group 13, process of sending messages to and fro between us during our KPP English Course time would have been very difficult indeed...

And so, from that moment on, we were resigned to the fact that by September that year, I would be flying off to the UK under the Oxbridge Programme, and Ayah would be flying off to the U.S. of A under the Ivy League Programme instead of staying in Malaysia for two years under the AAD Programme.

Or would we really?

Salam Kak Shana,

Let me be the first to say.....

Aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!! Big sigh!!!

It is so sweet, I think this is the sweetest bit by far of your epic love story. It is so sweet that I've got his lump in my throat, which I am not sure what is causing it!!

I loved those early days when things seemed so sweet and everything about him/her made your heart skip a beat or two (Uhmmm Saudara H might know the diagnosis here!). The honeymoon period!!

And when you least expect it, 'it' happens and there is no turning back (the 'it' here refers to the first time you two spoke to each other!)

I'm sure to others, 'it' can mean a lot of things but definitely unique to the person.

I wait patiently this time....

wanshana said...

Salams Murni,

Thanks! :)

I have to say that I was having goosebumps while writing this posting. And I thank Allah for still making everything so clear in my mind. Syukur Alhamdulillah.

By the way, it was not just in the early days that he made my heart skip a beat or two. He still does that to me now. Hehehe!

There were so many "it" moments for Ayah and I actually, but you're right - that morning, the first time we spoke to each other, was definitely one of our "it" moments indeed...

Ayah said...

mmm... nak tunggu cerita first dating... cemana agaknya...

hanna said...

Mommy,
Aww you had admirers!
I bet Ayah sengaja told his friends to kirim salam to you in front of them so they won't kacau you again :D
WAAAHHHH Ayah jadi hero in this story ;)
See, a simple "kirim salam" can change your life!
Anyways, I can't imagine Ayah 22 years ago, outside that classroom, all shy and mysterious :D
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!
I'm actually imagining that right now :D

Eh, rajinnya you and Aunty A**d sapu sampah and clean the classroom! Compliments to you both ;P

Looking forward for the sequels to come!

Much love,
hannasuhailabintihaizal

Madam Tai Tai said...

Hi Shana,

So finally the first eye-to-eye meeting dgn Saudara Haizal, eh? Berdebar tak rasa hati masa tu..or tak sempat berdebar because terkejut dog?

I second Ayah's comment "nak tunggu cerita first dating..cemana agaknya.."

Bring on the stories..it's a joy to read.

Btw, I was teaching in the AAD program in Subang Jaya tahun 1991-1994. So I've seen the perangai budak2 yg bercintan kat campus tu. So sweet...

Keanorlinsya said...

AAAAAAAAA!!!
i hate cliffhangers!
tapi xpe, no pressure.
x suka lah baca stories that makes me smile while reading and still smiling afterwards.
guilty pleasures. hihihihihi!

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

i would die laughing if awang ikang was in fact his actual name.

yes, i concur with the first comment, its so sweet how things went so far. first it was letters, then messages...you guys even ended up in subang jaya together. its so clear God made you guys to be with each other. He even made known of it at such an early age. what can be more romantic than that?

*this Kerp-o-chee fella feels since IBU has always been in the picture, she too should write something similar.

wanshana said...

Ayah @ 10:34 a.m,

Nak tau cerita first dating?

In the pipeline...Hehehe!

wanshana said...

Hanna,

Yes - your Ayah sememangnya adalah seorang hero yang shy dan mysterious! Macam Batman lah lebih kurang. Hehehe...

And Hanna, now that you know how rajin Mommy was (and AM!), cubalah cari-cari sikit that rajin trait in your blood, okay? Winks*

Mmmmuuaaaahhhs!

wanshana said...

Madam Tai Tai,

Not sure whether I had palpitations or arrhythmia masa tu... But, I remember telinga and muka ni macam panas aje... Blood and adrenaline rush, kot? Hehehe!

You taught at KPP Subang Jaya? Was Cik Beeb still the Principal then? That place really holds a lot of memories for us :)

Oh ya...How's your Mom? Hope she's okay.

Take care.

wanshana said...

Kea,

Guilty pleasures? Hahahaha!

Sorry...kena tunggu sket lagi for the next sequel. In the mean time, keep on smiling ;)

wanshana said...

Kerp,

If I'm not mistaken, that Awang Ikang tu budak Trengganu, hence the name :)

Yes, God truly works and moves in mysterious ways, and a lot of things that happened in my relationship with Ayah during those early years proved that.

And the NEXT sequel will also prove that after a streak of amazing coincidences sometimes things may not work out as we hoped they would...

Jeng Jeng Jeng...

* And saya sokong!! IBU, we're waiting for your LAP story pulak! Hmmmmm....shall we start a tag on this?!!

Mr Engineer said...

Ketua posnita@Ibu was doing such a good job delivering those messages that there was no way Haizal gonna leave Group 13..hehehehe.

suria said...

you bring back my memories to zaman KPP pulak.......:)

wanshana said...

Mom-of-three,

Photo? Errr...unfortunately (or fortunately?!) we don't have any photos of our KPP time.

Hang on! I seem to remember - there was ONCE when we took a picture together! (We all budak baik - tak posing sana-sini and berkepit everywhere..Hahaha!) But, I really can't remember where that photo is! Nak kena selongkar storeroom my parents nampak gayanyer.

Ibu or Mr. Engineer - do you guys have any of our KPP photos?

wanshana said...

Aiz,

So sorry. Banyak peringkat lagi ni!

Have to wait lagi loorrr...

wanshana said...

Pak Payne,

I guess reading my postings ni is definitely not recommended for insomniacs then?! Hehehe!

Glad to know that this non-fiction is entertaining you all out there. And I'm a bit flattered and amazed that there are people interested to know Cerita Chenta Ayah and I :) starting from a "saja suka-suka" posting for our anniversary hari tu.

By the way, Ayah memang hebat ;)

wanshana said...

afsi,

Y*s is a girl - fellow ex-STFian. She did Law at NCUK, before flying to Newcastle. There were quite a few of my STF friends who were at Section 18 masa tu - On*ir (Mrs. Engineer), M*mi, N**tot, D*da, S*l to name a few.

You might not know them - they all pun pemalu jugak...(NOT! Harharhar...)

wanshana said...

Rose,

Yes - kan kuingat ke akhir hayat... and it's something that I want our kids to know about :)

They've always asked about how Ayah and I got to know each other, etc (even our 7 year old boy asked questions about this, mind you!)

So, I hope my postings on Cerita Chenta ni will answer some of their questions.

Episode akan datang coming so-so soon....

wanshana said...

Mr. Engineer!!!

It has been quite a while since you lalu lalang here! How's life? Are you in Jeddah or back home now?

Everybody, meet Mr. Engineer a.k.a Sh*dy - Ayah and Ibu's classmate from Group 13 - also one of our part-time postmen back then :)

Mr. Engineer is married to Ibu's and my good friend On*ir (fellow STFian whom HE got to know through US! And to those who have been following this Blog, you'll know that On*ir is one of my Majlis Tertinggi friends)

I think you're right, Sh*dy - Haizal had signed a contract with Ketua Posnita@Ibu re her mailing service back then, and she was doing such an excellent job at it - that was why he could not leave Group 13! Hahaha!

wanshana said...

Suria,

I hope they're good memories! ;) and kalau tak keberatan, do share with us in your blog :)

I think a lot of people dari zaman-zaman we all have sweet memories during our KPP years.

I for one, treasure those memories tremendously. Precious.

wanshana said...

And Mr. Engineer @ Sh*dy,

If I remember correctly, that Awang Ikang guy was your ex-schoolmate!

Mr Engineer said...

I am actually back home now but may have to go back to Jeddah again end of this month or early June. I always make a point to lalu lalang in your blog...it is just that most of the times tak sempat nak post any comments. Hari ni service kereta and the service center ada wifi. So been doing a bit of blog-hopping.

Hmmm....I do have some old photos of KPP at home...let me check them out tonite.

Awang Ikang was my ex-school mate? Do I know him?

Hmmm....Me and On*ir met Ruby a few weeks back. He is also doctor.

Last year I bumped into *xha*st. Hehe....

rad said...

Salam,
PLEASE, pls keep on posting...been following & reading the kisah chenta religiously hehehehe...
This is better than reality tv!!
Even more than just a 'movie' too!!!

wanshana said...

Mr. Engineer,

You bumped into Ruby? Wow!!! If J*ra knows, sure kecoh! Hahaha! *xha*s* - selalu jugak I terserempak, and of ALL places - kat TESCO!!! Hahahaha!!! (IBU - if you're reading this?!!)

I'm sure you know Awang Ikang. Next Karaoke session, I'll let you know his real name. Hehehe! And kalau ada gambar hensem you all and and gambar chun we all masa KPP tu, bawak sekali.

(By the way, WHEN is our next RB session?!!!)

wanshana said...

Salams Rad,

Thank you for hopping by "religiously". Hehehe!

Alamak...I'm REALLY beginning to feel the pressure now. I have a feeling there are a few more silent readers out there also waiting for the sequels! Aaaarrrggghhhh!!! Tooloooonnnng!

Working on it...working on it...

MrsNordin said...

Hello, friend... No wonder you rajin berkemas, ya...? *wink!*

wanshana said...

MrsNordin,

Saya MEMANG seorang yang rajin berkemas. Begitu juga dengan Ab*d. Kami berdua sering tiba awal di bilik darjah kami kerana kami SANGAT suka memegang penyapu dan feather duster.

Yang menjadi tandatanya sehingga ke hari ini adalah bagaimanakah pula Ayah, pada pagi yang hening itu SANGGUP bangun awal dan menaiki bas pertama bertolak dari Seksyen 6 untuk ke Seksyen 17?! Kerana selalunya seingat saya (semasa saya skodeng dia), Ayah sering tiba di Bilik Darjahnya dalam pukul 7:30 pagi, dan bukannya pada pukul 7:00 pagi seperti pada hari yang bersejarah itu!

shamanis said...

Shana, I wonder. Cerita2 hebat macam ni, tak ada lagu2 80s kat background ke?

-fatheroffour-

IBU said...

Shana,

AWANG IKANG ???? LOLLL!!!! eh? siapa eh? Aiya... my memory mmg kaput lah. Sumer x ingat.

By the way, can I now claim backwages ka? No worries - wthout interest. But on 2nd thoughts, x jadi lah... contra dgn "tuan doktor" fees. hehe... he knows what I mean ( I think! ).

Dey Mr Engineer...

You arrr.... mmg tau! Cam biskut chipsmore, kejap ada, kejap x de. Anyway, sayang sgt haizal kat Group kita kan? And surely sbb x nak putus "talian hayat". Sit up straight la eh, now that your name is also dragged into the storyline. Ending pun bagus punya! With ahli MT jugak. Hehehe.. pusing-pusing roundabout.

p/s DON'T U DARE POST ANY KPP PHOTOS ANYWHERE WHATSOEVER !!

Kerp,

Ibu's love story? Errr... x der, x der. Saya ...errr... saya x bersalah. Err... saya ada string of boyfriends tapi x der love story, boleh? Heheh.....SHHHH.... ada kawan my AYAH lalu lalang here tau. Hehehe...so no comment! LOL!!!

wanshana said...

Shamanis,

Errr...konfius I sekejap. "Shamanis" - but "Father-of-four"? Tak per...tak per...tak jadi hal. Hehehe!

Thank you for dropping by :)

Of course Ayah and I had OUR songs masa tu, which include - Greatest Love of All (Whitney Houston) (boleh?!), Say You Say Me (Lionel Ritchie, That's What Friends Are For (Various Artistes), and also Suraya (Kepala Angin).

Layaaaaannnn....

wanshana said...

Ibu,

"Talian Hayat" - HAHAHAHAHA!!

Anyway, mana la you nak ingat Awang Ikang. You were busy melayan ratusan peminat-peminat you masa tu... Siap kena ambik nombor, depa naaa? Hehehe!

Backwages - no problem. Can contra dengan fees tuan doktor - tapi kalau ada balance, nak kena declare kat Lembaga Hasil for Income Tax 2008 or 1986?!

Oh ya...tidak lupa juga - Mr. Engineer who ended up with Mrs. Engineer, they were our 'pengapits' at our wedding reception on Ayah's side :)

Kerp,

Up to you to believe Ibu or not...But, I have to say - her nose is growing longer sedikit demi sedikit sejak petang tadi. Hahaha!

Ayah said...

Terpanggillah saya untuk menceritakan versi dari mata dan hati saudara HHK...

I remember that fine morning. I did take the first bus out. I thought this was going to be the day I would meet her. Was this planned? U bet! I probably didn't sleep the whole night rehearsing my opening speech! Can't remember if I actually wrote it down. If I did sure banyak kertas habis duk pangkah2..asyik tak betul je!

So I gathered all my strength and courage...and marched to the floor below. Oh, before that I made sure I dah berus gigi baik punye..sikat pun lain macam sikit. I even practised my smile...several times!!!

When I did reach her classroom, I saw her there sweeping and cleaning...and I stood at the door motionless. I suddenly felt my knees were about to crumble beneath me...when she turned! "Omg...she's looking at me", I must have said to myself! "What shall I do?" I was just about to say..."Err..nak pinjam penyapu boleh?" Nasib baik she said "Haizal, kan?" At that moment I wanted to say, "No, Michael Jackson!"...but tak tercakaplah pulak... Instead I said, "Yes, Shana, kan?" And the rest is history...

Topaz

Ayah said...

Afsi..

Then we must have played against each other! I was last man..what position were u in? Btw, Shuk was 1 of my closest buddies in the UK..until he changed his gf...err I mean until he went to do his Masters in a different place.

Mr. Engineer..

Yes, you are right. No way was I going to leave Grp13. I would rather be with a crazy loonie bunch but happy than be in a totally sane and civilised group but unhappy! ;p

Ibu!!!

I am so indebted to you! I rasalah kan..Pos Msia sure dapat idea hantar surat laju2 ni dari you! Very reliable! Stem pun tak payah! Pasal contra tu...hmmm, bisa diatur ya Bu! Let our accountants sit down and discuss ya..? :)

Pak Payne...

Hebat? Err..which part? :D

Mom-of-three

Did you ask to see our photos then? Well, imagine this...Mommy with round John Lennon glasses and short permed hair and me without my facial hair (and Kerp..I had eyebrows, k!)....and then squint ur eyes and make us look thin! In the background is Taman Tasik Subang Jaya. That was the only photo of us together in KPP :)

Kmar said...

Shana,

Gambar tak ada ke?... kot-kot la masa bercinta tu (especially bila first jumpa face to face) ada gaya ala-ala filem Hindustan!!!!...

wanshana said...

Oooooohhhhh....

My man hath spokenth...

Hehehehe!

wanshana said...

Kmar,

No pics laaa...Sorry.

Masa first time jumpa tu, I tak ada la pulak camera with me. I only had a PENYAPU in my hand...Hehehehe!

Ayah said...

tumpang lalu -

IBU : kita lalu lalang tapi kita dah tau cerita, tapi dari sebelah pihak aja. Kena la disahkan dari pihak yang sebelah lagi... of course la, kalau dari sebelah pihak yang tu, musti la dia je yang macho kan...

wanshana : cepat sambung while Ibu nak cari screenwriter tu...

Mr Engineer said...

Dear Haizal and Ibu,

You are safe....for the time being. All of my old Group 13 photos have been packed and sealed in boxes and shipped to our "interim" home.

And yes,ahli-ahli MT telah bertungkus-lumus untuk meng"introduce"kan my wife On*ir to me....Please note the inverted commas.

wanshana said...

Ayah @ 7:13a.m,

If Ibu's Ayah MACHO in HIS version, Ibu MOCHA la kot in HER version?!!!

Walau apa-apa pun, kita tunggu dan tunggu...

wanshana said...

Mr. Engineer,

Ellleeehhhh....bukan susah sangat pun nak meng"introduce"kan On*ir to you and persuade you all to go out... There was a ready chemistry there already what?!

But, aren't you glad ahli MT worked overtime to make it happen for you guys... :)

IBU said...

Shana,

Untuk julung2 kalinya I access blog during lunch time - you punya cerita chenta punya pasal!!

Gelak sakan baca HHK's comment. Siap berus gigi baik punya. How close were you planning to get?Hahahaha....

To my Ayah's kawan whose nick is also Ayah,

My Ayah tu kannn.... totally oblivion (a more diplomatic word than "blur"?) to my 'situation'. Tak tau pun apa ke jadah pun PPM tu. Sbb tu dia perasan macho. I x kesah pun. Janji loan rumah dia bayar & tanggung beres. HAHAHAHA!!!

Mr Engineer,

Eh? Ruby jadi doktor? Sejak bila? I thought he studied engineering. Oh la la... ketinggalan zaman la i ni.

Helena said...

hehe... your posting ni memangla bring back memories.....

its romantic and hilarious at the same time..... hehe

we want more!
we want more!

Mr Engineer said...

Shana,

Having "acquainted" myself with members of MT for a very long time, I notice you all ni can be very "persuasive"..... Pity the then boyfriends and now husbands....

To be exact, Ruby is actually a Radiologist.

MrsNordin said...

That's very nice of Haizal to tell his version of the story. So now we know, you guys also get nervous, huh?

Shana, bak kata pepatah, masa tu, "lautan luas rela ku renangai...", inikan pula naik bas ke Seksyen 17 pukul 7 pagi!!!

wanshana said...

Ibu,

Ayah berus gigi baik punya...just in case...Hahaha!

(Toothpaste foam pun dok ada lagi kat gusi pagi tu kot?!)

wanshana said...

Helena,

Memang pun romantic + hilarious = recipe for long lasting relationship, insya Allah :)

Ayah and I dok gelak sakan baca all the postings and comments on our cerita chenta ni :D

Have been hectic at work - so, sequel kena put on hold sekejap.

wanshana said...

Mr. Engineer,

I don't think the MTs are persuasive. Just that the boyfriends/(now) husbands yang saaaaayyyaaaaannnngggg sangat kat we all, and ikut ajer whatever we ask you all to do...

Pity you all?!!! Errrr...you all kena kawin paksa ke dengan we all?!!! HAHAHAHA!

wanshana said...

MrsNordin,

I think Haizal should have his own blog and tell his side of this cerita chenta... Baru real!

:)

Kerp (Ph.D) said...

IBU!

strings of boyfriends? Ibu's Ayah gotta read this. oh God, this is getting out of hands la kak shana...hehehe...


Doc,

your version was rather hilarious. were you really about to ask for the penyapu?? no offense doc but that was pretty lame la my man...hahahhaha...

*taman tasik subang ria was so happening back then. even concerts featuring the rock kangkang bands were held there.

Salam Kak Shana,

ok.....when is #3? I think my patience is running low, boleh tahan 2-3 hari lagi je kot. Otherwise, I won't be responsible for my actions!! Hehehehe!!

Kelakarlah baca all your friends' comments, not only you found true love, you also found true friends whom you've grown up with through thick and thin.

And Abang Haizal, brush teeth?? uuhhmmm how close were you planning to get to Kak Shana that morning? Nak pinjam penyapu...hehehehe....I'm sure you could have come up with something more believable that day. Anyway, you really sound like a romantic at heart!!

Take care Kak Shana. And remember 2-3 days!!

wanshana said...

Kerp,

Yup - it's getting out of hands alright...Now that the cat's out of the bag, the kittens will have to follow. Hehehe! (Ibu, you Roger that?!)

And Yup - that Taman Tasik Subang Ria memang happening that time :) But, now when we lalu situ, macam a different place altogether!

wanshana said...

Salam Murni,

Ok...ok...Will try to come up with #3 by tomorrow, insya Allah :).

Kawan-kawan I tu?!!! Ni you baru baca their comments in here. You should meet them in the flesh - sure migraine you! Hahaha!

But, yeah - they're a great bunch of friends...

You take care, too :)

D.N.A.S,

Memang best bercinta dolu-dolu kan? So much more personal touch... (Errr...I don't mean "Touch", as in "touch", okay? Heheheh!)

Waaaahhhh....sampai bakar tin laichi?!!! Gaduh besar tu! World War III ke?

Did you guys get back together after that? Or the laichi tin burning episode marked the end of the relationship? If you guys got back together, sure menyesal bakar segala tu kan?!
