It was a trip down memory lane when an old buddy returned from New York City. Gary had been away for some 20 years at the Big Apple working in a Chinese restaurant somewhere in Manhattan's suburbs called Flushing.
Obviously, I rounded up Peter and his newly married wife to meet up with Gary for a cuppa at Starbie's. Gary and I knew Peter way before he met with the swimming pool mishap that paralyzed him severely at his neuro-spine.
Peter has struggled a long way on wheelchair, eventually became our country's top blogger for his vocal & rights for the handicaps. He was so noisy that Datuk Sharizat took notice of him.
Go read his blog.
Peter, his wife and I.
Gary is another Kopi-O addict besides smoking heavily and gambling almost nightly at Trump's casinos in Atlantic City for years till his losses chalked up to over RM100K. A mighty bastard with no brains I would label him.
However, since my return from New York City in the 90s, Gary had sworn that he would kick the gambling habits which he successfully and proudly adhered.
This trip back home, he's catching up a flight soon to unite with his fiancee in Shanghai where he hopes to venture into some Shanghai Bunds!
Damn it, doctors have pronounced him unfit and grounded him.
They found that his uric acid level is very high with dangerous level & amount of bacteria, swarming all over his stomach which could lead to cancer.
I was damn shocked to hear that all his bacteria came from eating nightly plateful left-overs of raw sashimi and sushis at the NYC's Chinese Restaurant where he worked. That went on for over a decade!
No wonder, the bacterias have mushroomed and built nests in his brains too, resulting him to suffer from loss of memory in recognizing most old friends!
Look at him, he courts danger with the amount of sugar for his cup of coffee! He has ripped off 10 strips of Brown Sugar into his cup! Gary is a @#$% moron!
This is the last shot of his sugar - 13 strips!!!!!!!!
Yes, Gary is my "sweetest" friend!
