After living for 22 + years, I’ve realized something.
Friendships are based on memories built together. If you don’t have any significant memories to rely on, your friendship will never stay long. Owh and of course, your commitment to each other.
Must. Always. Spend. Time. With. Your. Friends.
Like for example, I go random shopping and make jewelry with Louanne. We criticize blogshops and go on random shopping and makan trips all the time. We used to be shopping buddies way back then in 2003. Sorry I wasn’t there for you during your huge break up, we were quite driven apart after you got together with him in the first place -_-. Sidney will always be my bff, no matter where life leads us. I will always remember Elaine for being my friend in college when the whole world (ok, im exagerating) turn their backs on me. Sayang my lainey boo wtf. Please spend more time with me? I’m loosing you, slowly… With Lea, Nisha, Sam, my teenage friends, we will always have our Poetic ammo and boyband huntings memories. And now with Lea and Joyce, we’re growing up together in the big bad world of “adulthood” by meeting up and having dinners and laughing our asses off over things 😀 (owh, and walking at 1130pm in DPC, so mengada we all) With Phan Shean, he will always be my first few sms buddy (man, we used to sms damn a lot in high school) and close friend in high school, we still meet up, even if its once a year (now, that’s what it means to be a committed friend). Owh, now we message each other on MSN -_- Stephanie will always be remembered with my Malacca Trip and CareerSense ( I will always remember my CareerSENSE buddies too, Jet, Patweek, Wednesday, Nick, SiewLi-Fireflies!!!), of course, all the random moments we have together and her feminism, i love. I love you stephanie chuah shin ju. TK, will always be my grocery shopping buddy, although lately you FFK me so much -_- dun like u (:p) Lavena, I miss her loads. She was also one of the reasons i believed in friendships again after the 2005 incident. Tk and her hung out with me, which made me feel a whole load better. I will also always remember my one semester with Sok Ling and how we used to go for chemistry class together. She’s a sweetheart. the times we spent together and just her fetching me to class when we had chemistry was really fun. When I said bye to her before she left for US, I was so sad 🙁 (I guess her company really impacted me) Come back soon, we need to build more memories together 🙂
I never had permanant friends in college. You know the ones you have in same classes, same groups all the time in the whole undergraduate life. I just realized after spending time with stephanie’s friends and listening to all their memories they had. I never had that much memories with the same bunch of people throughout my college years. I had Rowena, Amelia and Melody for the first few sems. Then Elaine was my kawan sebuntut, with Rachael too soon after that. After they graduated, Sok Ling and steph was there. After that I was a lone ranger with no kawan sebuntut to hang out -_-
I once even believed that Peyton Sawyer quote “everyone always leaves”. You should read my diary at that down time of my life in 2004/2005. so emo can die. thought I will never have friendships that last.
But, in the end, I’m glad I have all my friends in different circles everywhere. I’m so lucky to have still be friends with Lea now, who really I lost contact with when we were in college. Thank God, we’re hanging out now. Heck, I’m still friends with Sue Yuen Theng and Foo Wei Foong, omg. They knew me since I was 6 years old!!
The point of this post is, Thank YOU!
Thanks for being there for me and just being who you are and thinking about me when you’re praying (lol). Thanks for layaning my shits and I really hope we will not loose contact anytime in this lifetime. Please call me to go shopping or makan or minum or concerts or travelling or anything else you can think of. Sayang you girls and guys loads. Let’s grow old together?
(shit, I’d better not leave anybody out…lols. If I do, please accept my apology, lols)
