Nandos lunch. I decided to join a lunch group on impulse. I normally don’t go to lunch in groups.

One of the reservoir engineers said some folks upstairs (in the subsurface engineering) think I’m macho and alim*? Wow, first time I heard of such praise. I’ve been called macho before but I’m nowhere near alim.

Something happened later that was painful. My heart broke afterward. Twice. Still limping, I couldn’t fully bend my leg. At home, cats dug away the plants. Urgh!

*this actually means knowledgeable (full of ilm, ilmu, knowledge), not pious, but many thinks alim refers to what wara’ stands for
