Narmatha, Erneetha and I took the train to Penang Hill on one cloudy Tuesday. Overdressed people that we were, even amongst the flashy tourists, we got stares and Narmatha got asked for her WeChat ID twice. But other than that the crowd was surprisingly tame, with a girl even volunteering to help us hold the reflector when she saw the models having to hold it on their own while posing (not easy to do at all).
First half an hour was messy, as usual, then as we hiked up the trail, Narmatha pulled out her packet of cigarettes (non-tobacco ones, she said) and I got so excited! Because the romanticized smokers always look so cool! And back in Sunway, the smokers at the back gate look like freaking models! I nearly did a smoke shoot with Gerald but it fell through because he came up with a cough at the last moment, and we never rescheduled. So there at the top of the hill I made Narmatha smoke through the remaining packet (IT WAS THE NON-TOBACCO TYPE).
And then we went back downhill and had dinner at Asia Cafe.
