When Mr. Shamsul Akmal informed me that he would be coming to Johor Bahru from Kuala Lumpur again, I was excited beyond description. It is always a pleasure to welcome an old friend from school again, and again, even though the chat topics would always centralize on the past [and mostly horrible] life in a boarding school. How could misery and suffering become something exciting to talk about for hours is something I could not understand.

So we had our dinner at Kampung Melayu as my friend had a craving for "mee rebus". And after that I even managed to take him for a tour around Johor Bahru before sending him back to his hotel in Senai.

So it was just a short meeting but it was people would call quality time. So hopefully he will have more work to do in Johor Bahru in the future so we can have more frequent meetings and perhaps with other ex-schoolmates as well.
