It is great to catch up with friends abroad, and this time round, I met Adi Salleh and his lovely family.
Adi’s eldest daughter studies in a Chinese school, which I had the privilege to meet, and spoke about briefly in Mandarin. I shared with Adi that how my dear wife forced me to communicate with the twins when they entered into pre-school in Mandarin only, and she will penalise us if she found us speaking to each other in English.
Both the twins could speak good Mandarin now, and perhaps learning to pick up some Hokkien and Cantonese, real soon.
We had dinner and lunch together, and I later had the great honour to meet Adi’s dear wife. Three of us had lunch at a sea side restaurant which serves Soto Ayam, which is the Chicken Soup noodle or noodle of your choice.
It tastes different from what we usually get back home. However, still taste great in its own unique way. I love it.
We went to a hipster cafe for dinner, which serves Chinese food majority, and some Western cuisine, and I think I love my fried rice which comes with dried prawn, and lots of it. I am not a fan of dried prawn, mainly my mother pushed me to eat so much of that when I was a child. She made the dried prawn chilli paste, dried prawn porridge, as my parents are from Penang, they love dried seafood in their food.
The last time I met Adi and his team was in 2012, I was there with Kaspersky Lab team, for a media briefing and to attend a Royal banquet after.
He still looks the same like 4 years ago and seriously fit. Ha ha.
I hope I have loss some inches from the last time when we met. However, we could see and communicate with each other frequently on Facebook as well as Instagram.
Till we meet again, take care my dear friend.
