The One That Got Away


Behold… today’s insanity.

She’s implying that Allahyarham K h a i r u l  A z n a m, a boy we both knew when we were still schoolgirls, is “the one who got away” for her.

Let me set, her revisionist history straight.. since this a place that honours facts and the truth and all… 😅

Allahyarham was a very popular boy in VI ~ handsome, personable, fun to be with. At the time even (the then not-yet-famous)  S o f e a   J a n e   H i s h a m  was ga-ga over him.  We had all bonded at a B T N course. Acik Perasan developed a crush on him and started calling him non-stop after that. Allahyarham was kind enough to entertain her, to humour her… He confided in here about all his relationships, his crushes, his feelings for other girls… but in Acik Perasan’s mind, they had something special. Sadly, Allahyarham passed away in his sleep, a few days after Aidilfitri 1997.  It was said that he had suffered a high fever (believed to be meningitis?) a couple of days before that.  He was a good egg, and you know wot they say about the good dying young.. 😭

Even after all these years, because of the lack of sparkle in her life (I presume!) she loves to create melodrama around the anniversary of his passing. The way she speaks of him is as though they had something going. That she was special to him in a “more than friends” way.  He certainly was special to her, in her mind he was her ‘boyfriend’.  At the time of his passing, he was interested in someone else… I know the name of the girl, who is now married (of course) with children. He confided all this in Acik Perasan Tak Hengat (henceforth to be known as APTH)… but noooooooOOOoOOOO… in her mind, Allahyarham  A z n a m  had feelings for her.

He prolly would turn in his grave if he knew how she is going on about him to all and sundry now ~ implying that they had something “going on” of a romantic nature back then.

May you rest in peace and be placed with those whom He favours, mon ami.
