Let’s deal with this fact that… we are getting old. Okay, maybe not old, just older than 10 years ago definitely. I’m sure since 10 years ago, we’ve moved on in all aspects of our lives; be it physically, mentally and of course we’ve gone to more places and met more people.
Yes, the point today is… the people we meet.
I like going through photos; my own and other people’s. Hey, we can’t help it. When people publish their photographs, we view them. That’s the whole purpose, isn’t it? The most recent photograph I have come across is the one where Najmie (Nanad’s brother) was with his cousins/relatives (or friends maybe?) at the hospital the day Baby Dani was born. Surprise, surprise! Who did I see in that picture? Huda Adam. She is now married to one of the guys in the picture, Shidi. Now, who would have thought?
And did I mention that Uncle Zai, Nanad’s uncle was my dad’s classmate or something at MRSM KB?
I think about 2 Fridays ago, while Mamita and Adlin and I were having dinner, Mamita mentioned Anas. Anas who? Anas Malik who is now Aliah Nasreen’s husband. They recently got married. Apparently, Anas is Mamita’s cousin? Like for real? Now who would have imagined??
A few months back, after the funeral of one of our family members (Alfatihah), I went through Pia’s blog and guess who commented? Aznyda from the UiTM Law Faculty. Yes, that’s who. Apparently, she’s one of Pia’s cousin’s best friends, who attended the engagement ceremony which Pia also attended. Complicated much? Yes, I know.
My CC (chief clerk in my office) is Sabrina’s (who is one of my sister’s good friends in TTDI) mother’s sister. Okay, I was just making that one complicated, she’s Sabrina’s aunt. Small world, isn’t it?
Petrina, who is now in Research was Hadi’s senior in Shook Lin and yes, Hadi, I do get stories about you every now and then, which is good since you hardly update me on anything anymore nowadays.
Did you even think that all of us were SO connected? We’re so connected it gets a bit creepy sometimes.
My point is that although the earth's equatorial diameter (which I don’t know what) is 7,926 miles, at some point in our lives; we are bound to meet (or be connected) with each other in one way or another. It could be because we have common friends, common family members, or we are put at one corner of the earth and all we have is each other.
It could also be because we have common interests like blogging and writing and travelling, etc.
Now that we know we’re bound to be connected with each other at some point in our lives, I don’t get it why some people have to be so nasty to others (and manage to sleep at night) and how some people hardly ever think before they do something or speak.
Let’s just be friends and be nice to each other okay. We don’t like it when people do bad things to us, let’s stop doing bad to others. It’s a vicious cycle, stop the spinning already.
