Of Friday nights and friends Pt 2

last night was a rather tame affair at the TT. Was a bit late as I was busy pretending that the Sirloin Steak was a dang good meal while trying to figure out what does my client meant by "cantankerous" when we're talking about food.

Nope, for the life of me there's nothing cantankerous with that well done sirloin steak which honestly it severely needs. Some Cantankerousism would make it stand out. Though I can't guarantee that it'll taste good but at the very least at RM43 a pop, it better differentiate itself than the western food fare stall at the roadside. And no! A growth of garlic with the top cut off can not be considered as different. That's more of a vampire killing weapon than something worthy of a place in my stomach!

oh yah!! The dinner was in a fine 5-star hotel that have quite a reputation for its food. Gosh! those food reviewers, they've been eating all scrumplicious and mongolicious good food all the while that when "in-need-of-Cantankerousism" sirloin steak come along they find it wonderful. Ouch! Too much of a good thing is not good after all.

aih! I'm digressing.

lets see......

oh! the TT!

nope, was pretty ok and nothing interesting happened other than a friend finally manage to find a supercharger for RM10K. Well, its bloody cheap compared to the usual price of RM30-40K. But for me to get it, it will entail me pawning my soul to the devil and a portion of my body too. heh!

Of more significance however, was how we actually talked about real life situation. Honestly! nothing like that actually happened before, but last night was "different". Maybe due to the fact that we have 3 of our gang lining up to get married next year. Those married were giving out advice and tips and what not. It is heartening to see the more experienced members sharing more than just car tips, what more when it involved life altering decisions like marriage and matrimony.

Granted that this "life altering advice session" only happen at the wee hours of the morning when everybody is sober and have not much "out of this world" stories to tell. Where the body is tired, the mood is subdued and words straight from the heart easily flows. But it is indeed refreshing. It really is.

I never thought I'd say a man's straight heart-to-heart discussion will be refreshing and good. What more when it involve emotions, life and these "womanly" stuff. We men want to hear Sex, Drugs & Booze related stories. Tonight though, is different.

As much as this session is for the benefit of the "GPSed-but-not-yet-shackled 3", the "shackled + GPSed" members reveled at the opportunity as well. It is as honest as it get and the giver and the taker really make an emotional connection which is very rare for an all guys gathering. I find it really good and informative especially when the general word is "Yes! Avoid at all cost!".

Music to my ears! :D
