When Ken was queuing up for his usual cup of iced latte, a former colleague, Johan patted on his back.
Johan: ‘Ken, sudah lama tak jumpa. How are you, bro?’
Ken: ‘I’m fine.’ Jokingly, he asked: ‘Are you here for a drink?’
Johan: ‘Eh … Tak ada lah. I’m still fasting, bro.’
They later found a quiet spot and began to catch up. Like Ken, Johan was just killing time as his wife Atiqah went shopping.
Ken: ‘Kerja mana sekarang?’
Johan: ‘The same company that you left some years ago.’
Ken: ‘How’s life?’
Johan: ‘Sama je, nothing special. I’m just surviving only. Not like you bro, sudah kaya raya. Haha …‘ Ken: ‘Haha … Where got? Belum sampai lagi. Now, I’m still inching one step at a time towards financial independence.’
