I was sixteen, in jusco ipoh, doing what i'd consider my first proper holiday job, sports section, Nike. I had earrings, tons of wrist accesories, spiky hair, white shirt, grey tie and slack pants, always with my tag covered, a perfect costume to explain a victim under the education system.

Work was all fine, I'll sleep in school as usual, only wakes up during recess or period when we're required to attend to the science lab. at times when i woke up only to found myself sleeping alone in the class, when everyone has left for recess. they failed to wake me up, and the usual phrase "another day for you huh?" I nodded, and grinned.

My holiday job extended and became my partime daily thing, after school, bathed and I'll show up at the mall exactly at four, work ends at 10, my day ends at usually after midnight, I'll walk home after Dota.

It lasted for almost the whole year, until one day at work, someone showed up and asked for a vacancy, a very ordinary girl, right after SPM. I permitted and she showed up to work the day right after, and since then never stop impressing me with her punctuality and the personality which makes you think she knows the whole world but is always too humble to express them. it's all inspiring, i was infatuated.

I got her after a month or two. I guess it was because of what she perceived as the street-smart in a sixteen year old, she would listen to me ranting all day like an innocent wild child and yet said something like "i felt like a kid after hearing". i knew i was never up for the standard, i tried. attending school and never fall asleep in class, stop wearing my accessories and tailored a much more ordinary school pants. and she brought me back to church, once again started attending youth fellowship regularly.

She got her results, faired pretty well, quit the job and started applying for uni. and since then we never get to meet up as often. a few months later she invited me to the yearly St.Michael's drama play, theme that year The Mulan, she did all the violin backing. we waved and said hi after the play, and left heading our own way. it ended just likethat. i was pretty depress for quite awhile, not until someone in church said God has a purpose installed for every being who show up in our lives.

part of my growing process owes tribute to this particular person. the lastime we met up was one and a half years back, how fast time passed. and my nickname in dota salutes to her, it has never changed. we're good friends now.
