15 May 2009 - I met someone at the office lobby today. He was an old man, wearing a smart casual outfit with a songkok. I think he is an UMNO member. He greets me from the back and shake my hands as if we knew each other for quite sometimes. It still didn't get me first because I never saw that man before in my entire life.
He begins to lecture me about life and religion. I listen to his lecture intently with some few of my own comments. The discussion turn deeper into religion and God. The he said to me, "son, you are being prepared for something larger than life". I was turned agape, and he just left after giving me a modest salam.
This kind of encounter with a stranger was not my first time. The other one was with an old lady at the train station. She wore black robes and also greets me with a modest salam out of nowhere. And she just left.
