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

Last week Gary came up to Kuala Lumpur. He's on a sort of self-journey to learn more, experience more and meet different kinds of people. So his first stop was his next door neighbour's capital. And as I'm living here, I played host a bit. The first night he came over I brought my friends along, the drinking group. This time, Nikke, Redzuan and David didn't come for various reasons, and instead, Rachael, a new cellgroup member of mine, joined us instead.
We brought plenty of alcohol to Gary's hotel room. There was still the Remy Martin XO left from the last drinking session, a 21 year aged Chivas Regal that was Ruz's Christmas present last year, and two bottles of Moskovi Vodka.
So off we played! And off we dared! And off we did things! I wasn't so fortunate this time, as I had to make out with guys much more than girls. Hell. I did get to make out with Michelle (sorry Aaron, lmao) and was supposed to with Rachael, but she wasn't so sporty. In fact, she pretty much spoiled the mood for the entire night, and didn't make much sense in her logic. We didn't force her of course, but she wasn't really open-minded anyway. And I had to kiss Gary too. Aiks. I haven't seen him since the beginning of the year, and making out was not the welcoming I planned. Lmao. Rachael and Gary didn't enjoy the session much. Rachael was busy covering her eyes half the game. She's 23, but she's got the voice and a mindset of a 9 year old. Geez.
Anyhoo, after whole session we ate a bit and talked about some issues till 7am. They went back while I stayed in Gary's hotel room 'cause we were hanging out the next day.
Oh, and by the way? He stayed in Prescott Inn. The service there sucks. Seriously. We asked for ice, and they didn't have ice. What kind of hotel doesn't have ice? That's forgivable. Then we asked for some cups, and we ended up with cheap paper cups. Fine, they're still cups. When Thaiianna and I went downstairs to buy ice they said they'd pass the cups to us so we could bring it up when we went back to the room. What ever happened to service? We had asked for it a while back too. And worst, the next morning we asked for a fan 'cause the aircon was spoiled, and it took them 3 hours to deliver the fan. I got so sick of waiting (plus I was dead tired) I called them up to cancel the fan, since waiting 3 hours for a fan was ridiculous. So I slept. An hour later someone knocked on the door, giving us the fan. What the hell?! Are you serious?! Four hours for a fan that was cancelled? Geez. I took it anyway, 'cause the aircon really sucked. My opinion? Don't stay here unless there are no other options. It's almost in the middle of nowhere too. Maison and Asian Heritage Row are quite a walk. Bottom line: it sucks.
The next day we woke up in the late afternoon and headed out. Took the monorail to Bukit Bintang area, and explored the 3 main malls there, namely Pavilion, Sungei Wang and Berjaya Times Square. He seemed to like Pavilion, and Sungei Wang was oddly empty of the "lala's". Times Square was just to explore a bit, 'cause we were both tired and I needed to head back home after this anyway. Well, it was a good time to catch up, and do a little bit of shooting. My food photography sucks. No matter, 'cause I've never seriously considered food photography anyway.
And this week? I had band jamming, after an absence of like a month. We messed up a bit, but got back on track after a while. Not happy with the keyboards though. Two keys in very convenient places were very inconveniently spoiled. It was a good time to catch up on our music anyway.
And the weekend that just passed was a great time spent. After service, Justin, Redzuan and I joined Michelle and Aaron at Starlight. For like the last month, I've been hanging out with Michelle and Aaron at Starlight every weekend till the early morning. So I'm pretty familiar with the place. We had a great time chatting and catching up, and had great conversations since there was no dare games involved. Lmao. But it was a great time sharing a lot and opening up deeply. We talked about quite a few diverse, serious subjects too. And lot of focus on life, and the future of our actions.
