It's good to know that there are still some kind strangers around us, whom we could trust... I truly admire your guts of accepting a total stranger's invitation to meet and even visit his hometown...I wouldn't dare to, lest of the risk of meeting a possible cunning ones...

Thanks everyone! My apologies for the late reply, been freaking busy :(

Yes, generous spirited folks are everywhere. We just have to keep our eyes, ears and hearts open!

I should have another piece out next Saturday, 28th Feb!

WP: wah really?? You make me kembang only lah :D

Chiawen: heheh, I've done even more daredevilish things than this. Only thing is, have to reveal sedikit sedikit - not good to scare the parents who also read the papers!!

Sulin: Thanks Sulin :)I'm just glad I had a chance to thank Louis in a small way through this arty, though personally I think it pales in comparison to what he did for us in Gua Musang!

Mel: You're right about the emotional bit. I don't know about my two travelling companions, but I certainly was holding back tears when we were travelling back to KL. Ah. Thinking about Gua Musang always brings back a flood of fuzzy feelings!

..I re-read the January papers in one of evenings back in Sg, and find it 'nostalgic' to read about 'adventure' again. I've past my youth time & it's nice recalling those early days, not saddle with work & adult-problems. One can only do that in Malaysia, it still has that adventure feeling..Sg, nay...it's always deadlines & work (eat, sleep & then back to work!)
