It had never occurred to me that our lives, so closely interwoven, could unravel with such speed. If I'd known, maybe I'd have kept a tighter hold of them.

I just got a phone call from Shirley in Singapore.
The darling girl called me because she got worried as I have been missing in action for some time.
I FEEL SO LOVED. T_T
NO SERIOUSLY OMG I LOVE YOU SHIRLEY SIM. THANK YOU FOR BEING SUCH A DEAR.
And the following two photos are impromptu snaps I took right after the phone call for purposes of updating Darling Shir.
This is a close up photo so
YES SHIRLEY GO AHEAD AND INSPECT MY FACE FOR POSSIBLE ALIEN INHABITATION!
I wore the granny glasses on purpose so you can laugh at me, knowing full well how much you dislike them haha!
And here's proof I am still the old me.
Ok maybe I have turned justtttttttttt a little cuckoo.
I am more than fine as you can very well see. :)
Goofy as ever.
Do not panic!
Remember this? :)
You know which one's my favorite? The one in the top right corner.
I love the candid shot and I love our natural smiles :)
We were so young, so happy and so very carefree.
Heck we were ONLY 13 years old!
Reality check, those photos were taken EIGHT whole years ago, canyoubelieveitomg, how time flies.
So much has happened since then.
I miss our time in chms.
I miss having you as my biggest competitor for grades, essays, art, music, calligraphy, debates, speeches and...boys. :p
I miss passing notes to you in class when we were to continue writing each other's fictional stories.
I miss YOUR GOODY-GOODY-TWO-SHOES-TEACHER'S-PET-FACE.
I miss cramming exams at the last minute with you and STILL scraping through with good results.
I miss dialing your home number (YEA I KNOW RIGHT, HANDPHONE-FREE DAYS FTW *insert ROCK ON hand sign*) and hearing your maid's voice asking me to,"Tunggu jap. SHIRLEYYYYYYYYYYYYY~"
I miss hiding books we love in the library because there is a limit of two books we can borrow at a time.
I miss having movie marathons with you and sleeping over at your place.
I miss climbing with you to your roof and sitting there watching the sky, at the same time having to be alert and make sure your mom did not catch us.
I miss making a fool out of myself when I'm with you.
I miss you creating a million and one nicknames for me: mars, mari, mario, etc.
I miss our laughters and oddly, even our pointless fights.
And most importantly. I miss you, my oldest best friend since Primary 4, who had never failed to stand by me and being a wonderful friend in your own special way.
I love you very much.
The past few weeks flashed by in a busy blur. I hardly have time to draw my breath before the next thing hits me squarely in the face.
School and work have taken over my life so I haven't been free to talk to you.
I am so very touched you called out of the blue to ask how I am coping.
That really meant the world to me.
I will pay you a visit as soon as I manage take to a break from work and classes.
Take good care Shir. :)
I want to give you a huge bone-crunching hug that lifts your tiny body off the ground and then swing you all around! :)
