I guess some of you might be a little curious about A.
A reader asked me to write about how I got to know A and how we got to know each other better.
So I guess, since I have some time on hand today, I’ll share a little about how our paths crossed. 🙂
Well. Maybe just some information about A first.
She’s one year my junior and has a really sweet family, and three other siblings.
According to her, she is quite a handful when she was younger (she still is quite a handful if you ask me).
Don’t be fooled by her innocent toothy smiles and big bright eyes.
She got into her first fight with some bigger Indian girl when she was in nursery!
That’s 3 years old! She was in nursery and that girl is in kindergarten.
She said the girl pushed her head into the toilet bowl and she fought back.
(She says she is a natural at self defence) Hahahahaha!
She stopped the bullying but peed her pants after that.
Here is the little monster.
As for us, we met each other when we were in Nanyang Junior College.
We weren’t in the same class or CCA, didn’t really speak to each other properly before.
But we recognized each other by face and always bump into each other after graduation.
That’s how she’s like when in JC.
Super athletic girl who had like 3 or 4 CCAs when she was there in NYJC.
Outdoor Adventure Club, Judo, Touch Rugby and stuff like that.
She left school for Raffles Design School afterwards.
We kept in contact via Facebook a couple years later.
I was already in NTU, slogging in Civil Engineering at that time.
The creepy thing is how we kept bumping into each other when we were out.
Now when we spoke about the past, she can still mention almost all these places!
It’s pretty amazing. Hahaha!
She is a strong and determined girl who works for what she wants in life.
She’s free-spirited, optimistic and incredibly smart!
I think she has also influenced me to work hard for what I can have in life, to aim high, and dream big in a good way.
She would drop by into my life every once in a while, when I least expected.
And as instructed, I didn’t reply that message to thank her.
Our friendship is pretty much like that over these years.
And this is how she has changed over the couple years.
The last time I bumped into her was in Dempsey CMPB.
I was there with a friend after an event and she was there with a friend.
We saw each other (actually I saw her first because she’s quite blind) and said HI.
And that was where it all began.
She messaged me on Facebook that night, and then I replied her.
I got no idea since when or under what circumstances that we have already exchanged numbers before that.
So well, I don’t know.
Did I pick her up or did she pick me up or did we just merely rekindled our friendship?
Hahaha. I guess it’s all not important now.
That’s how she looked like when we met again.
And the very first MMS she sent me. 🙂
It was when we were supposed to meet and she had some last minute urgent stuff to see to and had to postpone the appointment.
She has been an amazing partner and I’m happy every single day that I’ve spent with her.
We appreciate each other’s presence and efforts in keeping the flame alive.
We always try to make time for each other.
And none of the people I have been with before can let me feel the way she makes me feel.
We have been living our dream and travelling a lot for the last few months that we’ve been together.
She is my best friend and the girl I love the most.
