Meeting online buddy or blog-reader is actually a very common dating nowadays. So before officially starting my new job, i managed to meet up one of my readers in Singapore. I have been meeting numerous of cyber friends, but this doesnt mean that i am a random playboy, i dont simply meet a stranger by the way. Take note, i do care of couples of elements and everything counts including the weather before i head out. Anyhow, here is the entry written by Rose, the person i had met couple of months ago.
i knew him through blog-hopping. and he is the last person that i expect to hang out with during my stay. seriously. why would he bother to meet up? we only knew each other for less than a week. he has his life too. anyway, cut the crap. we met up finally.
the first time i met him, i was 5-10 min late. sweaty, smelly, dragging my tired feet, smeared mascara or was it the black eye-bags. Anyway, i am pretty sure i left bad first impression.
based on his description in text, "i'm wearing green+black specs+exit 4+burger king"..i was chanting, okay, green shirt green green black specs, all the way up to the exit. i saw Burger King and there he was, squatting and reading newspaper.
i somehow knew right then he is nice. and no, fyi, i dont judge by the cover. most of my books had bad covers yet they provide the best read around :)
he called me "Roses" so that, i gotta set right. my name is Rose.
(yeah, that bud with red petals which u guys, love to give up to ur gals as an appreciation of love. need i say more, for crying out loud)
the life that he had been through sounds impossible to me before.
like how a young child would look up to elder sibling, i asked him thousand and one questions. traveling and back-packing etc
basically, there were alot of first time for me when i was w him.
i had my joss-sticks burnt, fortune/fate read, first ever mango desserts, and of course, first ever person that i knew through cyber that meet up. it was everything that i had.
he took everything seriously even blogging. he gives a damn about what his readers think of his entries.
i enjoyed his companionship so much so that we met up again on the second day.
we separated when i got on the bus home to my aunt's.
he will be starting off with his official job next monday, tomorrow la duh~~
give him lotsa love, shower him with lucks. :)
I believe every journey ends off with something and embark with something new and better, always.
a friendship that perhaps might uphold itself few decades down the lane. it is usually too early to assume. in the above picture, i am trying to pout so that my face appears much smaller
I truly has faith that whatever history/background a person might had been through, it is to be proud of and well-respected. a man with history is a man well-molded.
everybody has their own story to tell. life is to be respected.
to live is to be a student forever.
Allow me to add some of the other shots we had taken. Undoubtedly, it was unaccustomed and uncomfortable for both of us at first but soon or later we slowly break the wall and after a while we seems like have known each other for ages though we were growing up from different places, education background, families, etc. But who really care these? As long as we are clicked, we dont need adequate constant conversation like what friends really require, what really matter is the bond that tie us together.
After a marathon talk, we decided to have a drink.
The next day, we had dessert at Bugis Street.
Before eating our desserts...
Oh, i swear i wont try ginger milk curd again.
She looks so cute.
It was my pleasure to have a chance to meet up you Rose. Wish our cyber-friendship could last forever. Also, i would like to meet up more of my readers as i believe it must be fun communicating with readers from all walks of life.
