You know you are loved when… – part 2

… These people treat you like a princess for the past 12 years.

I told Sue and LH’s mom, “他们从我18岁,开始疼我,到我现在都快30岁了!”

Sue said it sounded very 恶心! :p

I got to know them via Taekwondo. They were elite athletes (still are!) in Johor and I used to admire them a lot. After meeting them for the first time, Fe and I exchanged thoughts: KE and WQ are the most handsome to Fe and me respectively! :p

During KUiTTHO days, they were always there for me. Let me exemplify:-

In June 2002, their Taekwondo learning centre organized a trip to Mersing. I wished so hard I could join but PTPTN had not banked in allowance for that semester so I passed on it. What they did? They called me early in the morning, asked me to pack my bag in 30 minutes. They left no room for me to consider because the bus stopped at the entrance of KUiTTHO to wait to pick me up! They also foot the cost of the trip for me.

In January 2004, a day before my scheduled day of going back to KL to celebrate CNY, I received a call from H past midnight, “Sam, you have to stay calm. I’m calling to inform about bad news: our course mate, Az, met with an accident and just passed away…” I couldn’t stop crying after hanging up the call. I met Az before the accident near library around 8pm, I was sprinting back to hostel, Az greeted me, “Hey, Sam! Running so fast, where to?” “I can’t talk right now! I need to p-e-e!!!” It was too abrupt and I couldn’t accept the fact that was the last conversation I had with him! Instead of going back to KL as scheduled, I chose to attend the funeral of Az in Melaka the coming morning, it’s the last chance for me to be with him on earth after all. I ended up spending CNY in KUiTTHO that year, alone. When LH called on first day of CNY, I started to cry hysterically. Feeling worried, he drove to PR and brought me to BP.

In June 2004, when I was first being broken-hearted, LH offered refuge at his place so that I did not have to be alone in the hostel. They had to work but they took turn to keep me in company and cheer me up: when LH went to work, WQ took time off to be with me.

2006: my graduation

Upon graduation, I made sure I met them up whenever I dropped by BP. The trips were always very brief, so were the get-together.

2013 is the first time in my life to have a total of 10 days off for CNY since I graduated in 2006! Family members all went back to work on the 4th day of CNY. So I visited BP, to catch up and also to feel the warmth of friends 🙂 Again, I was greeted with warm welcome! At times, I wonder what good deeds I have done to deserve all the care from these nice people 🙂

2013: My bus back to KL was at 5.30pm. I had 1 duck noodle and nasi briyani around 2.30pm so was still very full. He bought cream puff and forced me to take it.

Inside the glass bottle…

“I want to walk tall, believe in myself, have the courage to ask for what I want and need, and live a life that mattered. I want to wake up in the morning with a smile on my face and know that I am loved and that I belonged. I am desperate to feel worthy and I am hungry for the opportunity to live my fullest potential.” - modified from "The Dark Side of the Light Chasers" - Debbie Ford

Under the apple tree…

"If you are not spending all of your waking life in discontent, worry, anxiety, depression, despair, or consumed by other negative states; if you are able to enjoy simple things like listening to the sound of the rain or the wind; if you can see the beauty of clouds moving across the sky or be alone at times without feeling lonely or needing the mental stimulus of entertainment; if you find yourself treating a complete stranger with heartfelt kindness without wanting anything from him or her... it means that a space has opened up, no matter how briefly, in the otherwise incessant stream of thinking that is the human mind." - A New Earth, by Eckhart Tolle

Inspiring quotes!

If someone prays for patience, you think God gives them patience? Or does he give them the opportunity to be patient? If he prayed for courage, does God give him courage, or does he give him opportunities to be courageous? If someone prayed for the family to be closer, do you think God zaps them with warm fuzzy feelings, or does he give them opportunities to love each other? (God in "Evan Almighthy")
“To love another person is to see the face of God.” ― Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” -Mark Twain
Aggie: "But what about the people who hurt you? Don't you ever want to make them suffer?" Norman Babcock: "Well, yeah, but what good would that do? You think just because there's bad people that there's no good ones either? I thought the same thing for a while. But there's always someone out there for you. Somewhere." - Paranorman
"机遇总是偏爱有准备的人"
“You're only here for a short visit. Don't hurry, don't worry. And be sure to smell the flowers along the way.” by Walter Hagen
Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, body thoroughly used up, body totally worn out and screaming "WOOOHOOOO what a ride!" - by anonymous
When you travel, it’s not like you take a part of each place away with you; rather, it’s as if you leave a part of yourself there, like a part of you forever belongs to that place – the time, the people, and the things you saw; and over time, it gets burned deeper into your soul - by anonymous
