Jalan jalan

It was not the best of mornings to go out for a walk, even if it was a casual walk, as my cousin insisted. First, I had stayed out late the previous night and second, what does one wear to a casual walk? One needs good shoes that are suitable for walking, and at the same time, does not make you look like cankle. Also, how short should the shorts be? I ended up wearing a white tank (not too tight to hide my tummy), and knee-length Nike shorts/berms, my Gola shoes and a black bandana (all the better to hold my hair together, dear).

I have to give my cousin credit for all her cunning arranging. As we met at a house beforehand to discuss the projected walk, we decided to head to McRitchie for our walk. As I had to leave earlier, I decided I would drive as well, so I could turn back anytime I liked. My cousin immediately bundled everyone else into the second car, and directed her target (let's call him Mr A) to sit in my car so he could "show me the way". It was all done very quickly and smoothly and before I knew it, we were on our way.

We had pleasant conversation in the car, and I learnt about what he does (no details here, the Internet has a nasty habit of biting back) and that sort of thing. Once we got there, we ended up walking in pairs, since the paths were quite narrow. He walked with me (I'm sure my cousin had some hand in this too) and we talked about movies and music. It was all very pleasant chat and there wasn't any lag in the conversation. We walked all the way to the Lornie Rd SICC golf course and headed back to the carpark, as I had to leave soon. We were a little ahead so we stood around and talked somemore as we waited for my cousin and her friends to catch up. He then casually asked when I got off work, and suggested meeting up sometime soon to hang out, then gave me his number (as his phone was in the car). heh.

And there you go. We have since smsed each other a bit, and a tentative plan has been made to go out again soon, but that's another story for another time.

PS I hope he doesn't read blogs.
