The girl handed me the bill, "RM22.40," she said. I flipped through the notes in my purple purse, thinking twice. I haven't got the time nor the money to spend too much on ice-cream these days. But I needed something to celebrate;)
Putra LRT was having its worst day of service just now. I was planning to go home early when there was an announcement stating that I had to wait another hour should I need to get into an LRT. My lungs wanted to burst the moment I saw hundreds of people queuing for tickets in front of me. I immediately took the escalator and headed to KLCC.
While walking through the hussle, I craved for peace. Maybe I was too tired, I couldn't stand noise and the surrounding. So, I let my legs chose its own destiny. They chose Haagen Dasz;)
Aku ini wanita biasa
Bisa sakit luka karena cinta
Dingin sepi kerap menyapa
Air mata jatuh lukisan raga
Yes, folks. I couldn't helped feeling lonely when I licked Strawberry Cheesecake and Belgian Chocolate just now. I saw a couple who fed each other Ice-Cream Fondue; thinking that I would look definitely weird if I ordered that and ate alone.
...a couple who wore yellow t-shirts
...a couple who took pictures while licking chocolate ice-cream. They planned to put the pictures in Facebook.
...a boyfriend who hugged the girlfriend too closely until the cotton fabric of the gilfriend's shirt showed its crease
...a husband who fed strawberries into the pregnant wife's mouth
Argggghhh...Haagen Dasz was not the place I was supposed to be.
I started to hear "Kau Ada Dia" and Kris Dayanti's Aku Wanita Biasa in my ears.
Well, Sha is exaggerating! Hearing voices is the sign of a person who is going lunatic. Sha is not crazy yet! Well, not crazy...but definitely a sad girl.
Liking someone who doesn't like you is preasurising. Definitely.
Then I bit the crispy almond flakes and the blossom basket. My vision cleared. My hands clasped Lisa Kleypas' Smooth Talking Stranger tightly, thinking that I should read my book instead of watching a magic called affection and love.
Then I saw...
A girl who brought an ice cream to her partner who wouldn't stop talking through the phone. The girl licked the ice cream with pleading eyes but the partner was ignoring her. Then he walked by before he stopped somewhere near me.
"Sayang...she is still with me. I know...I know...I layan dia makan ice-cream dulu, nanti I datang jumpa you, okay! Alaa...kejap je. I tak sayang dia, I sayang you..."
The blossom basket in my mouth crushed fiercely.
Yup, I worked hard to pay for the expensive ice-cream today. I went to a place which soothed my lonely heart. But I didn't expect to learn a lesson:
"It's better to be lonely than betrayed!"
My Strawberry Cheesecake rested in the Blossom Basket had never tasted nicer;)
Kadang ku kuat setegar karang
Kadang ku rapuh lemah liar merana
