KL Labor Day Weekend Break: 30th April ~ 3rd May 2009

Day 1: Thursday, 30th April, '09

Back in KL again for the Labor Day weekend from the 30th April until 4th May. It was supposed to be a low-key weekend to settle a lot of stuff with SL, with the ‘big day’ coming real soon and all. My first day in KL was on a Thursday, a working day, so SL was not free to settle the stuff, and most of my mates were not free to teman me except for TJ. So off I went to the ‘Curve’ as there’s a warehouse sale for Zara, Massimo Dutti and Pull & Bear stuff. Went there early to shop first and met TJ later for dinner. Have to queue for almost 30 minutes to get it, and it was sandwich to sandwich in there. Bought a Massimo Dutti shirt for RM100 (normal price was RM400 I heard?) and a Zara top for RM30. Will wear them out after I get to wash them clean first ;)

Went for a quick dinner with TJ at Sakae Sushi, chitchatted the whole while and catched up on things. Congrats on getting that job!! ;) Sakae Sushi was as packed and as noisy as ever, so after 2 hours there, we left as there was a “yamca session with the Akurians” later.

Now why I used inverted commas is a very interesting thought. I thought there will be a yamca session, as I’ve messaged most of them on where to meet and what time. The replies were the standard and monotonous “SS15”, “somewhere near-by”, and “I’ll be late, you guys go ahead first”. The usual, typical and regular Akurian correspondences and probably due to that (and the unceremonious month of May, I mean who has birthdays etc in May??) my guard was low. And how sorry I was for lowering my defences!!!

It all began with a phone call. I got the call that SL was coming over to my house. Fine, no problems. Then Maj called to say that she can’t join the yamca session and she’ll drop by to get her bottle of 'Bailey’s' I bought for her in Labuan. Fine, no problems. Maj arrived, we exchanged the goods and a conversation, and I started to walk back into my house. And at the precise moment that I thought she’ll be leaving, I felt a sudden splash of water on my leg and back. It wasn’t even a SPLASH, it was a soft spatter of water on my back. I turned around and I saw VJ and Theva holding plastic pails in their hands. At that moment I still couldn’t comprehend what had happened. My mind was swirling with questions like ‘what the heck are they doing here’ and ‘why the heck they are holding plastic pails’? They didn’t speak a word or made a sound. Then I think I mumbled ‘Ehhhhhhhh’ and I realized with a weight of a ton bricks that this is IT. This is actually IT. A freakin’ PRANK. A split second later, all hell breaks loose and I’m splash with water from right left and center. I was vulnerable, defenceless and unprepared. I was a victim of a surprise birthday attack. AGAIN. Deja-freakin’-vu.

A few minutes later, when all the water had been vanquished from their pails, I just had to laugh. It was freakin’ April and they are doing the birthday surprise now?? My birthday’s in June for God’s sake!!! That had me, and they had me good. For the SECOND time!!! Kudos for the advanced advance planning and effort!!! You guys just rock. Here’s the pix taken from Maj’s cam and blog. Hope you guys had your fun, coz I’ll have my revenge!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

They wait like thieves in the night. You guys are damn lucky no police guys pass-by!!

Attack water being filled using MY water hose!!! MY WATERHOSE!!! It's just like being slapped with my OWN hand!!! AARRGGHHHHH!!!!

Filling the pails while looking out for my presence. Must be very exciting eh??

All set and ready to go. Uncle being as enthusiastic as ever. The Pangkor attack still lingers in your consciousness I see ;)

No pictures during the attack unfortunately, but the aftermath shows an obvious amount of damage had been done to me. Mostly psychological, unfortunately.

The victim. Enough said.
