Anony... yes it did huh! Thanks! :-)
We didn't do anything special on our off. No invitations, no appointments. Luckily I don't have a local mobile phone, no one to disturb me. Had a walk with Jan from the hotel to Bukit Bintang while trying to take some pictures. It's such a shame that there wasn't anything special to shoot at during that 15-minute walk. We cruised the different malls in Bukit Bintang. Said hello to my friend who owns Tarbush Restaurant in Starhill then walked back towards Sungei Wang. Met up with Marl who was in MPH getting an itchy hand to spend for another book. He's been a bookworm for a few months now. Jan was on a footwear search and I was on a skirt search. I couldn't find much skirts here. And my khaki skirt is becoming worn-out because it's a Wash-And-Wear apparel. I'm like that. When I like something, I'll wear/eat/do that over and over again. Until I'd wake up one day and say, "stop". I also bought some toiletries in where else... Watson's!
Jan and I took the monorail train on the way back. When we got back to the hotel, I dragged Jan to go with me to the gym. Not really gym, but the locker room. We soaked in the jacuzzi tub for a while, then went in the sauna room, then went in the steam room. I haven't done those things with somebody so we're like "naked" highschool girls or should I say, kids, laughing and going from one room to another to try it. I did them before but it's nothing like having somebody with you whom you can chat with. Will tell that funny story on my next post.
When we got back to the room, Marl has already went down to the lobby for his Monday night concerto. He doesn't have any off at all but he's more than willing to do it because he only have to perform for 2 sets and with all the great melodies in his repertoire and with his soothing voice, the management wouldn't want to settle on anything less.
My good friend Edlyn came to visit us again. She's one of the closest friends I got in this industry, always true and always there for me/us. She's not afraid or shy to tell people and even to me that she idolizes me. Of course, I'm flattered but I don't think it's necessary because I'm not even good in my own standards. She said, what she admires about me is my professionalism when I'm onstage. My the-show-must-go-on attitude. That no matter what I'm going through, I make it worthwhile for my audience to enjoy our performance just as much as the other normal nights. She's leaving this Wednesday with another great friend/saxophonist/musician, Marcial. They will be performing at the Sheraton Taipei where we have performed in 2000. I wish them lots of luck.
So there, nothing much special to do, huh? But I'm lucky that I'm into this field/job where everyday turns out to be different. Like everyday is full of surprises.
