Well, it was scheduled at 10am initially (by Chong Jin) but it turned out, Chong Jin was the first there to arrive...at 9.30am. I mean, 9.30am? In KLCC? On SUNDAY?
God! However, best friends wouldn't see personal interest hindering such faboulous get-together, even if that means waking up early on a Sunday morning!
The rest of us did show up anyway...of course not on time (we are Malaysians, remember?). Chong Jin and Alexis had their meals from the fattening Mc Donald's (hehe) while I had the sumptuous sizzling yee-mee from Sizzles (the best sizzling mee in KL I've ever discovered). We easily spent nearly an hour at the foodcourt, dishing almost anything from studies, Madonna to bad housemates behaviours.

Chong Jin tried so hard to be all friendly with the cam but Alexis was just trying to have his brunch *giggles*

Then, both of them invited me to the Matic (Malaysian Tourism Information Center) for the special screening of Buddhism-related movies in conjuction with the Wesak International Film Festival (WIFF) .
Arduously, we walked from KLCC to Matic on a hot Sunday afternoon, like some White tourists crazy for tanned skin. We watched the 'Among the White Clouds', about the lives of monks and nun in the Zhengnan Mountains in China.
Though coming from different religious view, I found the movie was very stimulating and moved me. There's one particular bit that captured me til right now, coming from a mouth from the sole nun living on the mountains:
"We always seek things and everything's about 'me','me'. We struggle for that one breath. When that one breath is chopped down, we let go of the universe. Why not let go of it now?"
There you have it. Very enlightening.
After the screening, we walked to the nearby monorail station (Bukit Nanas station) and head to KL Sentral, where we dispersed in our separate ways. But we had already planned for our next outing...to Genting!
