little surprises

Sometimes things happen, those little surprises that pop up now and again in life, and however trivial it may seem, you find yourself wondering if there really is something out there. Something greater... That makes you believe that life itself is not simply a mere existance...
On the flipside, is it just people are lucky and coincidence is simply the lucky person being at the right place at the right time?

I look towards the sky and wonder... if anything is out there looking right back at me...

Like every other Sunday for the last month or so, I drag myself out of bed to make it to work by 8am. Last Sunday was no different, but during the lunch shift I ended up looking after this asian couple. The husband asked me the typical aunty/uncle questions:
1. Where you from?
2. What you study?
3. How long have you been working here?
They were very nice and seemed unfazed by my awesome broken chinese during our polite chitchats, and when they left I thought it was the end. Lunch shift ended and in the evening one of my favourite supervisors took over. I mentioned to her that I missed working with her and to my surprise she asked me to work the night shift as well. I needed the money and have no life either so I did =P. Dinner was pretty crappy. We were a few men down and as I was busy scurrying from table to table I hear someone call my chinese name. Looking around, I see the couple again but this time they brought company. We didn't get to talk much since it was so busy, but lo and behold, I saw them again last night. This time the husband introduced me to his daughter... and the calibre or my chinese wasn't able to figure out how the guy stiiling with them was related to him, but he said son... so... maybe son-in-law? *sigh* epic fail... They weren't part of the tables I was serving though and it was so busy I wasn't able to serve them much even if i wanted to. It was getting late and before they were leaving the husband called me over to the table. He told me he had booked a room in the Holiday Inn but had to leave already but the official checkout time was 12 the next day, so if i wanted I could stay in there over night because the extra night was paid for (took me a while to understand what he was saying *sigh again*) but WHAT!??!?! That was unexpected O.o" I said no, but then wife joined in with the convincing so I gave in and took the room keys. I have to say it was awesome but weird at the same time? He gave me name and number just incase, and I admit I took delight in telling everyone I got picked up by an old guy and he wanted me to go to his room after work *wiggles eyebrows* hehehe... I did take him up on his offer though. I called a few of the workmates to join me for a few drinks up there until 3:30, when we were all getting super tired since a few of us only had 3 hours sleep the night before, including me =P They left and I decided to stay the night even though I still felt weird:
1. Im still P plater *le sigh*
3. I love hotel beds and pillows!
4. I was too tired to drive... and knowing me and my driving record...
5. Didnt want to trouble peoples to drive me home since they dont live that close to me
6. No one could stay the night with me cuz the bf has work so couldnt go, and the only other girl went home with her bf of course ="( oh welllllllllllll

All I can say is, good things really do happen when you least expect them to... hahaha... ^^"
