iBook and iMac-utilising Daniel Henry is reminded of pastries and quiche when he thinks of Scandinavia. Architectural structures of his choice are anything by Ken Yeang and Seksan. His favourite pasar malam is at Taman Connaught, Cheras.
When someone mentions Scandinavia in front of Hani, a picture of a red book titled 'Netherlands Architecture' pops up in her mind. A unit of the luxury high-rise residence The Troika is her top desired luxury item. When you serve her vegetables, make sure they have leaves; never peas. Or cook her a chinese stir-fry vegetable dish.
Kira loves brocolli. She was at The Curve last night to celebrate Merdeka Day, but is disappointed by the overabundance of Mat Rempits there. This is Kira's second appearance in I Got Shot [can you guess when was her first appearance?].
Roy is from Johore Bahru and he is here in KL to study computer science. He's into the underground scene and frequent gigs at Central Market Annexe and MCPA hall. The best pasar malam in JB has got to be the one at Kampung Melayu. Convent Bukit Nanas

The things she love about her school most are her teachers and the tradition of trekking up Bukit Nanas. She likes to chit chat on the phone with her friends, and meeting up with them at KLCC to watch movies.
Mr. Suhaimi was reading the newspapers while waiting for his daughter. He immediately relates the word 'Merdeka' to the date 31st August. He thinks the pasar malam at Taman Tun Dr. Ismail is nice. When asked about the traffic jams he has to go through every evening after fetching his daughter, he says he is used to it, even though it takes 20 minutes to get to the highway to reach his home in Puchong.
