As I was walking to see my customer inside the premise of Penang International Airport,there was this guy who looked very familiar to me,in a jiffy, I could not figure who he was though.
I walked pass him,(still could not recall who he was)without saying hi and as I walked to my customer's office,suddenly I realized who he was exactly.He was the one,who challenged me for loads of fight,the exact one,who would never give me pleasant look and the one who regarded me as his worst nemesis,simply because I snitched his girlfriend from him.
I did not snatch the girl and make her mine,I was young,she was hot,I was cool, I made my move,she fell for the groove and who cared if she was taken and viola,we were an item and that was almost 20 years ago.
As I came out from my customer's office,he was still there,I was thinking,could i just say hi to him for old time's sake,or just ignore him,in the end,I chose to work on the former.
As I moved closer,suddenly the guilt feeling surfaced and my heart pounded faster that I had to hiss my breaths to calm myself down but I still managed to call out to him,"Hey Yong, remember me?"
His response was far off than I could expect,he was so very nice to me,unlike 20 over years ago,those looks that as if wanted me killed.It was such a welcome ice-breaker,we both were asking,had anyone of us met our "girl" after all these years,we both conceded no.
I was happy that I had made Yong my friend now and as I told him that I really had to go,he was so eager to hold me for a little longer but I really could not and before I could take out my business card so that we could keep in touch, he was quicker than I was.
He passed me his business card and eagerly he said that we must really keep in touch,and I was so happy,judging from his eagerness,I said sure and I exchanged my business card as well.
As I walked to get my car,I was feeling so happy about the whole "bump into" and as I took a look at his card......"Victor Yong,.Financial Planner, representing XXXX company" Need i say more?
