Back then, as we were forever on a date line, we worked days and nights
ok tipu, it was more like siang tido malam berjaga to complete our design projects. So most of us will try whatever means possible to keep us awake at night. Believe it or not, saya pernah dua hari tak tidoq sebab nak siapkan design and yet I still didn't get good grade for it! Sheesh!
Anyway, whenever we run out of stock, we would frantically start scouting at the nearest co-op or convenience store for any, and I mean ANY, caffeinated drinks that could help us stay wide awake! At that time, I didn't care whether it was Kacip Fatimah or Tongkat Ali, memang main langgah ja as long as my eyes could stay wide open!
Once when my guy friend at the studio saw me drinking a mug of piping hot Tongkat Ali, he remarked "Padan la hang ada misai, dok minum tongkat ali rupanya!". Lol! From then on, every time he saw me walking by he'd call me by that nickname, MISAI! Hahaha, siot ja!
Oh well, I do miss my uni years and those friends I had around me back then. What about you guys?
