Didn’t she had the brains to think at all?I really hate to be disturbed with trivial matters when I’m in the midst of doing something important.
Anyway, after the meeting, I went home to pack my bag and went back to school as we are staying over at school to put up the decorations for the Teachers’ Day Celebrations the next day.
The decorations would only start at 4.30pm after most of the teachers had gone home. Around evening time, Bad and I needed to get to the Concourse to buy some wrist garlands for our dance com, coconut shells for the decoration and a fresh garland for Ms Vivienne Teo.
Unfortunately, it started to drizzle but Mr Ang was kind enough to drive us there despite him having to teach night class at 7pm. As we drove towards the Concourse, the rain became heavier.
As Mr Ang drove us through the little lanes along Tekka/Little India, we strained our eyes peering into the dimly lit street as the heavy downpour affected visibility. Bad and I decided to go in search for the coconuts and fresh garland on foot instead while Mr Ang waited for us in the car. It was freezing cold and both Bad and I were drenched when we ran over to the other lanes.
After a futile search in a few lanes, Mr Ang suddenly appeared behind us with umbrellas in one hand and two hot packets of Teh Tarik hanging off his fingers on the other hand. The Teh Tarik had lots of ginger added to keep ourselves warm. At that moment, I really felt so touched. Although it was just a little gesture on his part but it really brought a smile to my face.
I’m not saying that we’re big shots and that it’s a must to keep food for us but if anyone actually had the initiative to do this for us without asking, just like what Mr Ang had done for us ealier, it would really bring warmth to my heart on such a cold, wet night.
Fortunately, the celebrations went well and we received alot of complimentary from Ms Vivienne Teo and some of the teachers. The many months of planning, staying back late, rehearsals and hardwork finally paid off.
