Family & Friends Work

Adventures with Amanda

Just before lunch on Thursday, Amanda asked whether I’d have lunch with her around her place. She needed someone to accompany her home because she thought she’d left her iron on. So before anything tragic happens, she ought to return and switch it off.

I was hesitant to eat out of the Bank’s vicinity (except for Fridays) but for friendship’s sake, I thought, “Oh, what the hell!” Dragging myself and her freshly graduated team member along, we took a cab all the way to Jalan Jelatek and went through traffic to get to her condominium. The place we planned to have our lunch was nearby.

“Amanda, if the iron is actually switched off, I’m going to kill you.”

“You go and order mix kebab for me dulu lah.”

After that she walked up to the compounds of the condominium. Liyana lived there once. Security is pretty tight at the entrance.

She rummaged her wallet for something.

Her junior and I were already walking to the restaurant. A couple of steps ahead, she turned around and called for us. I had a feeling that this could happen. She was semi-panicking and waving.

This girl left her access card and key in the office. Absolute fail! Both of my colleagues then tried tracing any smoke coming out of the area, which they believed could indicate trouble coming from the iron (I really doubted that that would be of help).

“Amira, you should have asked whether I brought my keys with me!


“Okay. Next time, I will do just that.”

So what could we do? The three of us went for lunch at an Indian restaurant right away. Laughing about how idiotic the trip was, returned to the office and the same time hoping that nothing bad would happen.

You know what? When she reached home that evening (with her keys) she learned that the iron was actually switched off.

Amanda, you’re crazy.

    Amanda was my high school senior by a few years, was a head prefect. I don’t think she knows me but it’s amazing how she suddenly pops up in the middle of a blog i have been following!

    Oh my god i just read this post through the link you posted in your latest post. Amanda is soo like my dad! We were on the way to Penang ( Penang kott from Ipoh ) and dah sampai Kemunting ke mana tah but had been an hour drive la from home then my dad blurted.. ‘Abah tutup kipas ke tak eh…’ We were all like whaat then kitaorang patah balik and yes I think you guessed it right , the fan was switched off. What’s even more epic than that is the fact that 10 minutes nak sampai balik rumah tu abah said ..’Actually I think I tertinggal my bag baju too..’ -____-” We couldnt help but wonder if he actually made up the kipas-tak-tutup part to patah balik ambik his baju all.Super pissed mann. -__-
