Despite Rob’s shady attempt to get Little Mix’s Love Me Like You stuck in our heads for the entire duration of our Kuala Lumpur road trip, we all decided Adele’s Hello was still our ‘last song syndrome’ runaway winner. Can’t help it. Lola Adele’s melodramatic tunes was just perfect for our idyll, long morning drive.

Hailing all the way from hazy Singapore to Malaysia’s scurrying capital, KL was more of an escape rather than a destination for JP, Nick, Rob and me.

Escape from expiring work visas, from worn out bodies, from hungry tummies,from flying solo and from basic heart woes.

For our overnight KL sojourn, we’ve said multiple hellos (and goodbyes): to endless buffets, to the Petronas Towers, to our paandars, to our fellow ‘PINOY!’ (Hanz) who is based in KL, to our nighttime snoring, to our exes, and to our egos.  

Hello, it’s me. I was wondering if after all these years you’d like to meet, and go over everything.’
