Life is the art of drawing without an eraser ~ John W. Gardner

12 Months

Yes, if Wan Yi didn’t mention it, I’ve forgotten it’s been a year! It is an occasion that’s worth celebrating.

A year of what? Of friendship. Last year September, I was actively involved in a wedding forum, Malaysia Brides. Discussions, inquiries, queries, answers, sharing of experiences…… I was writing and posting so much in the forum. I was pretty familiar with a group of members. We started to chat and share our experiences and life. Within a short period of time, we know each other if not very well, also pretty well.

Jenny and Adeline are the first two from the forum that I met. Both of them are funny type and very true to themselves. No disguise, no pretends. I was a bit surprised that I could get along with them pretty well, they’re so much younger than me!

Then, I met Christine, Chelvin, Niki, Samantha, Berry, Elaine Choo, Winnie, Melissa, Vivian Miumiu, Vivian KC, Wan Yi, Nicole…… Then there was Elaine Gan, ZZ, Annie and Shin Yee. Geez… Now I realised I’ve met so many of them! What an honour! I even had the chance to photograph Vivian Miumiu, Christine’s pretty doggie and Shin Yee! These are the friends that make everything worthwhile. They give you the supports you need just at the right time!

There are some of us making great efforts in maintaining the friendship. Over the years, I’ve come to believe that friends grow out of each other’s life. Everyone has his/her own pace, we can’t force each other to hurry or to slow down. It is no one’s fault when we disappoint our friends, it’s just merely our paths do not cross anymore. We said “Hello” with a smile when our paths crossed, but why is it so difficult for us to say “See ya” when our paths separated? Yes, it’s not goodbye. Who knows there will come one day we will meet on the same path again?

A toast to friends that I have met in the past one year, to our friendship, to the happy times together, to the sharing of life experiences, to the laughters and tears we shared…… May our paths crossed for many, many, many more years to come. Cheers!
