my first outing with parents to Boulevard last evening. Boulevard the shopping complex sure attracts a large crowd daily. even after a week or so since it’s opening, the place is still pretty packed. renovation is still ongoing thought. the place pretty much reminds me of a mini-Midvalley. however, the choice of clothing brands is pretty much a Parkson + Ngiu Kee fair. [rant] omg, so dissapointing. 3 floors of nothing much that you can’t find anywhere else in Kuching. [/rant]

the only thing going for it is Sushi King and perhaps Kenny Rogers. just that customers have to contend with a long waiting line to get in.

i did run into a cute sales promoter there thought. she was giving free biscuit samples to passerbys. i was looking for wasabi nuts. when i was under her radar, she offered her wares but i declined. i inquired if she knew where i could find wasabi nuts. she indicated perhaps two aisle away. what caught me really was her uppity sense of happy go lucky tone of voice. she spoke fluent mandarin and as i walked away, she said “sieh sieh!“. she had me at thank you.

the second run around was when i bumped into my mom, who coincidently bought two boxes of those biscuits she was promoting. my mom dragged me over to her to get my opinion. the girl looked at me expectantly as i took up one of her biscuits for a taste. there were two kinds – potatoe and wheat. i prefered wheat. she looked happy by that suggestion. perhaps she likes wheat too. as i stood there staring at her, i continued our conversation earlier on wasabi nuts. i told her i couldn’t find them two aisle away. she replied in her happy infectious tone that perhaps they’re not available. 1 second..2 second..eye contact, i thank her and walked away. sieh sieh! she said from behind my back.

the third time was when my dad was at the checkout. i was leaning back against the counter and spotted her at her same spot. there were no passerbys for her to entertain. she was looking my way. i smiled. she smiled back. i walked towards her. we strike up another conversation about nuts. when that topic was exhausted, i said to her that i enjoyed our conversation and jokingly said that i’ll see her again tommorrow. she replied that she won’t be here the next day unfortunately. i asked her how we can proceed from here and she offered me her phone number. the closeness we shared was comforting and upon receiving that piece of paper from her, i proceeded to give her a hug. she responded. i walked away.

end of story.

my experience at Boulevard wasn’t all bad after all. everything that happened was pretty much how it is…except the last part about the phone number and hug. so…yeah.

u can regard everything here as fiction, or fanfiction (me being my own fan haha), or messed up ramblings from the deranged mind of a guy in his midlife crisis. whatever. comment as u see fit. the brainless ones go to /purgatory, not that i'm saying ur a zombie. then again seeing as i'm not getting much sleep lately, i probably am one. that said, u'll realise that u can't take legal action against a zombie. cause we've gots diplomatic immuniteh. rawr.
