Jinny and me.

Jinny and I had arranged to meet yesterday. I got back home just in time for the appointment. She is the niece of my good friend Meng Hoe ? my Scout mate during school days. How Jinny and I crossed path is a story worthy of an entry all by itself actually.
She had blogged about it here. She had just started to follow my blog and I had checked her blog on and off. When I was in Kuala Lumpur last month, I got an email from her where she recounted her experience with paralysis a few years back. We exchanged emails and chatted over the ICQ. She told her mother that she had been in contact with a certain disabled guy in Penang and it eventually dawned on them that I used to go to her grandmother?s house to hang around with Meng Hoe.
Jinny came with her parents. I have not met her mother, Meng Hoe?s elder sister, in more than two decades. That meeting really deserve a wow-factor of the highest degree. I got to rekindle acquaintanceship with an old friend and meet a new one from the same family all at the same time. Serendipity? Definitely! It is all out there in the tangled web that we all call the Internet. Look hard enough and you too may find a treasure of your own, like what Jinny and I have discovered. She had blogged about this meeting here.
