Went for some hi-so shopping at B.I.G. after that. Love to see the fancy groceries there. So many varieties with attractive packaging and jaw-dropping prices. Can even freshly pluck heads of lettuce from the aisles. No where else will you overhear such a conversation:
"Dear, make sure you get the MALAYSIAN Milo, not the AUSTRALIAN Milo. The local product tastes better."
Picked up my car after that and had lunch at SK's place. A very gweilo lunch of bread with ham, coral lettuce, liver pate and sausages. In the evening, attended the St. Ignatius Church parish feast day mass. A VIP celebrant that day-- Apostolic Nuncio to Malaysia, Archbishop Joseph Marino. His Grace was flanked by six CDD priests. While he was there, he unveiled a brand new status of St. Ignatius of Loyola, something that took years to happen. Not surprising I guess since SIC ain't a Jesuit church in the first place. Coincidentally, the Nuncio launched the SIC 25th Anniversary coffee table book, basically a history of the parish. A gay couple sat just a few pews away too. Think they are not regulars. At the end was a makan-makan session, so I had to move my car for people who wanted to leave. Some idiotic Mercedes blocked the turning and I miscalculated causing me to scrape the side of my new car on the pillar. T___T. Can still remember the sound of my car eating the stucco. Lovely scratches just above the wheel. Sigh. Barely a month and already scarred. Got some first aid advise from ChatMate, but still couldn't sleep well that night... *sobz*
