Hahaha ... ya ya thats how we met. Well no, actually I think we first met during an aerobic session ! I followed another friend of mine to the class and she introduced me to Kak Diah .. in those tight elastic sexy aerobic suit .... (forgive me Kak Diah .. but you looked hot .. I mean you still are ) sweating all over. I tried a few sessions with the aerobic group .... but me with my two left feet .. i had no knack at all with dancing .. I failed miserably at it ...... I just gave up. But I somehow managed to still keep in touch with Kak Diah. Its all because of swimming. We love the water very much and from then on we always meet up at the swimming pool. She would always bring her son "Boy" with her and I got along very well with Boy. Boy was only ten at that time .....
We spent our times chatting and I learned a lot from Kak Diah how she manages to keep her marriage alive and full of romance and how she really takes good care of her two daughters and that athletic boy Boy !
After some time we just drifted apart .. i think not because of anything, its just that Kak Diah i think was spending more of her time in KL and I in Alor Star. But we did meet occasionally, and at one time I even went to her house in BK3 and the main reason, apart from paying her a visit ... was to play basketball with Boy ... hahaha....
Kak Diah was already showing me her quilts during those our time together but me being me, I just looked at them with blank expression ... I was busy with my gym, my roller blade (yeah I even went out roller blading with Boy) my swimming, ..... hmmm. But I did notice Kak Diah , that they (your quilts) were all lovely; even when I had no inclination towards them, I still have great eyes for beauty ... :-D
I found Kak Diah again when I stumbled her blog. To my surprise she is already a famous quilter ! Almost everybody I know in the quilt world know of Kak Diah.
Kak Diah indeed is an amazing lady. I know that some are so surprised to know that I can get along with her that well, athletically, especially with the age gap of about 15 years. She is now pestering me to go swimming again after seeing my bulgy hip and I think i better follow her suggestion. I have no qualms about swimming but please no aerobic anymore ... (sakit lutut) sometimes I feel older than her physically
Oh ya I went to her house last nite and managed to get some shot. She was in spaghetti strap so no photos of her (hahahahaha .. kidding (the spaghetti strap))
