UTOPIA: Farewell

Farewell

I dun want to get too emotional but, the piano which has been with us for the past 13 years will part away today.
13 years sure do left lotsa memories…well, rather than being left to rot (and collecting dust), we made a hurtful decision to finally sell it.
Flashing back memories, I can still clearly remembers those days we went searching for a suitable piano and how we ended up with the current one.
That was year 1994 and it seems like just yesterday.
It was the hectic moment of traveling around, as mom did not drive. We took buses (and interchange buses) almost every weekend. Sometimes, we even started our ‘search’ as early as Friday noon after the school ended. I was pretty excited for having a plenty of outings during those days.
We went to numerous shops and some ‘auntie who sells second-hand pianos’s houses. Those places were scattered around Klang Valley, from Sentul to Subang, and some shops in Pudu, PJ and KL areas…
And lastly, after nearly 3 months of searching, we ended with a Kawai piano which costs us RM5K++. (that was a huge amount back then!)
Despite that, we have sold it for less than half the price now! Sob..sob…I m in a somber mood now…
And the weather today didn’t help as it is still raining out there. Such a gloomy day…
