Where will you be my darling? Where will you be when the dark is rising?

I don't quite know why I'm blogging about it now. This year, I've gone to Genting twice, with a different group of people. The first time, it was with Fei Yan, Shana, Ai Li, Aaron and Estee. Later on in the year, I went with Justin, Miki and Bruce. I had tons of fun on both occasions, and different experiences with both of them.
Why? Hmmm... mainly because a few days ago I saw that someone looked through my archives. Specifically looking for March 2010. I read through my posts at that time and remembered that I said I was going to post about the Genting trip, but never got to. Plus, I realized I said the exact same thing about the second Genting trip. So I thought, I might as well.
Back in March, Fei Yan invited me to join her friends to go to Genting for a few days. I had met all of them before, except for Aaron, in that time I went to Euphoria with Kai Yih and all of them. I was free, and I didn't mind meeting them again, so I agreed. We met up in 1 Utama and arrived in Genting an hour later. First stop was the hotel rooms! Ai Li and Aaron, being the couple, took one room while Fei Yan, Shana and I shared another room. Yay?
For the first night we didn't actually do that much. It was more of talking and getting to know them better. I mean, I knew all of them, but I didn't actually know anything else apart from their names. Yeah. That's it. So I got to know them much better. I found out about how they got to know each other, how they've been friends all these years and interestingly, their conflicts and arguments. I was pleased that they were nice and open, and trusted me as this was pretty much the first time we had a proper conversation. Fei Yan also met her friends Shaun and Wee Giap, so they kinda hanged out with us more than the group they came with. Lawl.
We went out and enjoyed the night air, which was cooling and damn nice. We walked around a bit, and had a few chats here and there. Shana actually fell ill and threw up. So we took care of her and being the "man of the room" (lmao), I took care of her a bit more, offered her water and stuff. Anyway, I had assignments left undone, so I actually brought my laptop up and decided that once everyone was finished with their activities and went to sleep, I'd stay up and do my assignments, therefore not spoiling the fun and doing my work at the same time. Surprisingly, Shana offered to stay up with me just to chat. I mean she seemed tired and she was unwell, but she still offered to accompany me while I did my assignments. I was grateful, because at least I had someone to talk to while doing my work, and she critiqued a bit on my assignments too. Plus, there's a pretty girl staying up to talk to you. How can you not like that? We talked and shared a lot. We told each other about our family lives. Hers borders on tragic I think. But yet it's so full of faith too. I was fascinated at her life experiences and her stories, and I shared about mine too. About the whole Zoe incident, and the stuff I went through before. It was a great, great time, and when I finished my assignments, we still talked a bit more before heading to sleep in the wee hours of the morning.
I had forgotten that a lack of sleep happens when you sleep so late. Estee was arriving in Genting that morning, and she was hyper as hell. She rang on our doorbell and was like jumping on our bed, pestering all of us to wake up. Wow, I mean, seriously, haha. I was so groggy, and kept requesting to sleep a bit more. Eventually we got up and had breakfast. After that we headed to the theme park! It was fun, but it sucked for me too. You know why? Because for some weird reason, whenever we were lining up for the rides and stuff, the line would always cut-at me. Yeah, only at me. Geez. All of them would go into the rides and then when it was my turn to go, they cut the line. 3/4 of the rides were taken alone. LOL. Dang, no fun when all your friends took it before you. Haha... oh well. Amazingly bad coincidence.
We went back to the hotel room where we rested. Fei Yan later joined Shaun and Wee Giap to have another round, but the rest of us were all tired. So we spent the evening hanging around the indoor park. Then we played a bit of blackjack and after that, had another nightwalk, altogether, apart from Aaron and Ai Li, who were off dating and Wee Giap, who was off dating too. I don't know who brought fireworks but he did, and we played with it near some bridge. Heck, we even took pictures! And just as the last picture was taken, with Shaun posing beside the fireworks, a police officer came up. Aiks. he asked what we were doing there. I don't know whether it was stupidity or honesty, but I said "Fireworks." Then he looked at me as if he didn't understand. Then I said (probably stupidly this time) "You know, fireworks. Boom?" The rest of the group were like about to burst out laughing but we kept it cool and he let us go, saying we should play somewhere else instead. Whew! Me and my big mouth. Then we decided to do something even stupider.
To prank Wee Giap, Shaun smsed him and said that while we were playing with fireworks, we encountered a police officer. Okay, that part was true. Then he added that we were taken by the police officer and brought to the police station. Now that part is definitely not true. When Wee Giap replied we were all laughing and stuff, deciding to tell him the truth once we came back. "Came back" took quite some time and Wee Giap was quite pissed off that we played a prank on him. Because you know what he did? He bashed and continually rang on Aaron and Ai Li's door, saying we were in the police station and panicking on he could do. Ai Li was pretty relaxed however, and that pissed off Wee Giap, that she wasn't concerned. So when we all came back we talked about it with one another, realizing it wasn't the best idea. In addition, Wee Giap had an issue with Ai Li too, and Ai Li was just whatthell-ing what we did. The next morning Fei Yan, Shana and I left first, and had a meal in 1 Utama. And after a good hearty conversation, went back.
And as for my Genting trip with Justin, Miki and Bruce, see the next post. This is pretty long by itself already.
