Later that night…
The night before we had to return home, Cik Su took us to the new BookXcess book store nearby, at a mall which looked pretty impressive but appear to be incomplete. The only other outlet we visited before was at Amcorp Mall. The books there were cheaper than standard retail value because these were old stock copies which were to be pulped.
Irfan bought a couple of young adult adventure novels.
Irfan also signed up for a store membership card which he hopes to use some day. Perhaps, he offered, he would be able to use the card to order books online at a discounted price.
I found a Star Wars Millennium Falcon: Owner’s Workshop Manual for less than half its retail price, but I thought I should save. I bought a much cheaper China Miéville
This store turned up the pop culture references level to eleven.
Okay. Let’s all take a photo with the comic book-based movie characters here on this wall.
We are Groot.
Before heading back to Nia’s house, we stopped for some teh tarik and the likes.
It was time to head home. Irfan spent some time reading for Nia. She appreciated his efforts.
Ain also took the opportunity to take a photo with her little niece before heading out. We were later told that Nia looked for us in the guest room after we had left.
Instead of heading home, we stopped at Aiman and family’s house for a bit where we had lunch with them. Ain bought us all nasi bajet from a roadside stall near their house that they did not know about.
The photo above shows our expression at how fiendishly hot is was that day upon our return to the car after Jumaat prayers.
We hope to see everyone again soon.
