It happened awhile back. It hasn’t been long; a few weeks ago? On the 6th of January.
A few days before the H-day (Hazarizq Day), Danial or Pen iMessaged me. He asked whether I’m free on the 6th or not. He told me that Hazarizq’s mom invited some of his close friends (I don’t think I’m that close with him, but whatever) to come to his surprise party. As I was very bored and was very free, I said yes (read the P.S. below).
I didn’t know anything about the party until a day before the H-day. I thought we’re going to celebrate it at his house, I didn’t know that we have to drive all the way to Shah Alam. I guess that’s why Pen offered himself to be my chauffeur (basically his car was our only hope, as in mine, Amira and Zan xD). The night before H-day, Mira, Zan and I were discussing on what outfit to wear. Girls -_- (Zan included xD)
Bla bla bla, it was H-day! Pen picked me up, then Zan and lastly Mira. We told Mira to walk from her house to the guardhouse since she is Rizq’s neighbor, but guess what. She did walked to the guardhouse, despite that we still have to drive to her house. Why? Well, she forgot Rizq’s present. *exaggerated eye roll*
Right after we exited Mira’s residential area, we made a pit stop at Karipap Gorilla’s stall since they three of them were starving to death (saving some space for steaks they say). Zan kindly treated us and bought 4 humongous karipap. Freaking full after that.
On the way to Shah Alam, Pen almost got into an accident at our second toll gate. So, this guy in front of us had to reverse because there’s something wrong with his smart tag. Your smart tag acting like it’s been hacked by an unknown hacker is common but reversing like you’re driving in a highway is not fine! (spot the puns guys) Pen stopped abruptly (unless he wanted to crash into the car behind), but the guy in front kept reversing like he’s in a race track.
*Car honking and BAM!*
Of course that guy had to crashed into us. It was not a huge accident, no. Just a little nudge that cause Pen to jumped out of the car (while throwing the karipap in a comical way) while looking like he’s about to kill the guy. Mira and I kinda panicked in back seat. Thousands of scenarios went through my head in those few seconds time. Alhamdulillah, Pen’s car was not scratched and our journey to Shah Alam went smoothly, OR NOT!
We arrived at the restaurant at around 6-ish. Someone suggested that we should’ve just went to this nearby mall, but hey, the party’s at 7. Waiting for one hour is no biggy, or so we thought. It was pass 7 o’clock and no one’s there. Not a single familiar face! We were tired and went back to the car to wait. Before that, I went to the reception and asked about the reservation. Guess what, the party was at eight! (we were told that the party’s at 7)
We were like asdfghjkl!!!
We start our journey early because we don’t want to be stuck in the traffic, but I guess being stuck in it was better. Haih, beggars can’t be choosers can’t they. Thankfully, Rizq’s sister came a few minutes later. Guests started to fill in the place. His family, his girlfriend also came (Janne was a darling I tell you!!! <3), his bowling friends, heck even his childhood friend from Canada came.
When Hazarizq arrived, we hid behind the resto. Janne was the one who brought the cake and somehow I ended up walking beside her. We were supposed to sing when we came out. Of course, I’m the only one who sang the ‘Happy Birthday’ song LOUDLY. It was so embarrassing, but oh well.
Rizq’s was surprised and it’s all good. It was quite awkward during dinner. Since my three friends are very thoughtful, they left me there alone to sit between Hazarizq and his bowling friends. Of course I know his bowling friends. They’re my best friends.(Please note the sarcasm)
I was bored to death and so were Pen and Zan, so I decided to just talk with Janne who’s having an animated discussion with Miwaaa. She’s adorable and was nervous af because it was her first time meeting Rizq’s family. I feel you girl (though you never actually meet your boyfriend’s parents because guess what, you never had one Allya).
It was 10-ish and it was time to go home. Before we went home, we took some pictures. Of course we took some pictures. Gila ke tak ambil. While waiting for our turns (the friends), I talked with Rizq’s childhood friend. I call her Neels because that’s her Instagram’s name. I’m sorry, but I forgot your name TT^TT Thanks to her, I think I’m going to apply to Canada for my degree. Teheeee~~~ U of T, here I coooooooooooooooome!!!!!!!!!! Wish me luck guys, I want to enter Oxford, but…………. Well, uhmmmm, it’s Oxford. Haha (awkward laugh)
On the way home, haiiih… Mira and her antics are inseparable. She almost vomited all over Pen’s car and shouting songs’ lyrics, etc. Yes guys, shouting, not singing. Then again, it was a fun ride thank to her. We sent her home first because Encik Mizan (Mira’s dad) has been calling and also Pen wanted to take this GAODIM sticker for his car from Hazarizq.
I met Janne again since Hazarizq’s had to take her home. By then, it was 11-ish. Janne was fidgeting. I pitied the poor girl. She met her bf’s family for the first time and the next thing she knew, she had to come over to his house. Zan and I were too lazy to get out of the car, but since I saw poor Janne; I gave her moral support. We talked with Aunty Tini (Rizq’s mom) until 12-ish and Pen finally took us home. Technically, not yet. We have to stop by his apartment in Cyberjaya first. We sent Zan and he finally took me home. I think he felt quite guilty, or not, I don’t know.
On the way home from Zan’s house, I asked him about his girlfriend. Guess what my reaction was. Unluckily, I was squealing like a high school girl hearing about her crush who secretly has a crush on her. Yup, I love hearing my friends’ love story. Actually, I think I love their love story more than they do. I was very excited and proud and kyaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!
That is all for today.
P.S. Plot twist: I have finals the next day. I partied late until 12 a.m. and my exam was on 8 a.m. (have to get out from the house at 6:30 a.m.) That’s why my friends felt guilty, probably xD I hope I did well on the exam though -_-“
P.P.S. I paint something for Hazarizq as his b’day present. I consulted a few of my art buddies (including AHA, yes, we’re not close but are still talking, thank God) and finally came out with the idea (also, after scrolling down his insta for hours). It took me two days to complete it. Gotta wait for it to dry, etc. It was the first time I gave my painting to someone. I feel so proud of myself. Hahahahahaha xD
