The clock ticks to midnight. Z and I make our way stealthily into the night where we cross the main road away from watchful eyes. Azel was already waiting in her car, all dressed up as we anticipate another night of fun in the club. The only one living outside the dormitory, she was our ticket to a night of fun on a school night. We were 18 and stuck in a dorm away from where the action is, takes its toll on you sometimes. And all we wanted to do was have some fun and not be cooped up in a dorm, even if it means skipping curfew!
We made a quick stop at the boy's dormitory. Three friends already await; clad in black to avoid being seen by the guards. Once inside, away from the guards, we'd turn up the radio before deciding where to head for the night. It could be a karaoke joint or a cafe or a club but usually we'd end up at our fave club in SJ, which closed at 3 sometimes 5 in the morning.
Young free and single, the world was our oyster and all we had in mind was fun; away from school and judging eyes. We needed to let off steam and what better way than dancing the night away. Eventually the six of us formed a tight-knit group, which sadly enough had to break when each of us went our separate ways to study in the US. Azel is now happily married and still as petite as ever. The handsome MK has also settled down I believe. I have not heard from Syamri or Depp in a while but they're on my Facebook and Z is of course within reach; still living in KL with a baby boy now.
I miss those crazy nights of freedom and reckless abandonment. I miss not having to worry about anything. I miss my clubbing friends but most of all I miss listening to Boyz II Men over and over again while driving to our nightly escapade...
