lose some, gain some
Monday... I was originally meeting Alvin for dinner as he was supposed to come down to NUS for a meeting with his Achilles people. Then during lecture I received a SMS from Alvin,
"Chow, change of plans. I cant go down to nus tdae"
"Then how? Police case liao leh."
Didn't ask him for reason. I mean, of course he had his reason for not being able to turn up. It's all about trust. Trust! But anyway later at night he called me and said that there were things cropping up last minute (ah duh!) So, I had dinner at home. Actually brother was supposed to be cooking dinner (it is NTU term break this week) but somehow last minute he had dinner with his classmate (and I wasn't informed until mother came back) but nevertheless I cooked his share...
When mother came back, she was like, "so good, I thought I have to eat dinner alone tonight" Okay, I always have this tendency to come home out of the blue. During army times there were occasions when I went home during weekdays and kind of surprised my family. And after army, there were times when my friends last minute change of plan, then there goes my dinner outside..
But at least, mother didn't have to eat alone.
Alvin, I know you are not reading this blog, but still, you owe me one dinner... muahahaha!
