You know age is really catching up with you when you attend a guys night out and end up watching P.Ramlee's 'DoReMi' reruns and actually enjoying the show!
For the benefit of my foreign readers, P.Ramlee is a local legend of an actor from my younger days who acted in comedies and drama's. This 'DoRemi' series of movies is something along the lines of the 'Three Stooges'. As far as I'm concerned he's still the best and only actor in this country who can really act, unfortunately he's long gone to that movie studio in the sky.
Anyways, me and my two best buddies organized a guys night out yesterday. These days it's really hard to get us all together to sit and hang out like the old days. We're all married now and have kids and trying to find a time when we can just hang out like before is really few and far between.
So yesterday, we managed to get some time to hangout and went over to our other buddies place but what happened next really showed us that age is really catching up with us. When we reached his house, we were too lazy to go out and ended up sitting and watching Max Payne, the movie which was horrible to say the least and had a hoot of a time watching the rerun of 'DoReMi'!
Imagine that, a guys night out was spent watching a rerun from the 60's and actually enjoying it so much that we were laughing till tears came out of our eyes. What made it worse was we were so sleepy that we called it a night by 12.30am! There were days in our youth that we could hang out till 3 or 4 in the morning, wake up the next day and do it all over again, night after night. Now we were all yawning by 11.00pm and cannot keep our eyes open by 12.00am ... LOL!
Even the prospect of playing a Nintendo Wii which my buddy had in his house didn't entice us to stay up later. Buddies, if you're reading this, are we really that old already? Where has the time gone? What happened to those days of staying up late playing FIFA07 and taking our teams to the top of the EPL league? What happened to the times when would sit at the bus stop discussing the theories of time travel (oh yes, we had some deep discussions back then ... LOL!) till the wee hours of the morning? Was it really that long ago?
Maybe we all have more responsibilities these days and our family's come first but I must say that I did have a good enjoyable couple of hours hanging out :D The good news is we're planning for a trip together, all three families, to go hang out for a weekend in Malacca early May which I am so looking forward to :D Hopefully we can all make it and I'm sure it'll be a blast.
