When I came to Singapore for studies, I knew I'd find a few chinese friends. But I never for a minute imagined that one of them would become one of my closest friends ever! I can't imagine an undergrad life without you in it and I am so so happy that the three of us (you know who all!) have names starting with the same alphabet! Where would we be, had we not spent countless hours in lab together in first year!
Chicken fried rice in an air-con food court marked the beginning of a beautiful friendship for me and the rest of us :) I'm going to really miss you. I wish we had come to your place for chinese new year more than just once. Ah well, I should count my blessings and be grateful that we made it atleast once :) I have so many memories with you that are all so dear... like sitting with a huge tub of chocolate ice cream while watching movies, eating cheesecake made by a sweet cluster mate, lab bashing sessions, airport drop offs and so many more! Remember in first semester, just before i left for vacation, you and I used to go to the air con food court and order two different types of chicken in the asian stall so we could get to eat as many varieties possible in the shortest span of time? We kinda had a repeat telecast of that on the day I left in science canteen :) Thanks for the potatoes!
I'm going to miss hanging out with you. I'm going to miss reading week blues that we used to share. I'm going to miss studying hard with you. I'm going to miss dozing off in lectures with you gals, poking each other to stay awake! Of course, you have a supernatural ability to find all of our rooms inviting, no matter how messy they are, and promptly plonk down on the bed! I'm going to miss that too!!! ;)
I'm never going to be able to look at a laddu in the same way ever again! I'm going to miss you ironing visits. I'm going to miss your snacking visits! Definitely, most certainly going to miss your ring tone and message tone! I wish we had more time to do some more "Scrubs" marathons. I'll definitely miss movie and tv show watching with you. Especially our traditional post-semester, pre-reading week movies! :P
I could go on and on and on... because there are just so many things that I will miss about you. My life in Singapore would have been woefully incomplete without you. Its because of you that Clueless and I dared to venture out and try new kinds of food! You taught me some of the finer points of making the most out of my Singapore experience. And of course, you are one of the major driving forces in making me a girly girl! Thanks for the skirt! I love it! And thanks for letting me borrow girly shoes all these years! Thanks to you, I now am considered something of an expert in picking shoes in my family! People here think I have improved my tastes! We know why that is! :D :D :D
Knowing how much you love to travel and explore, I wish I could take you with me to where I am going... We'd have so much fun together!
But its alright, I know that life must go on. We all have different dreams and we do what we must to pursue them. After all life is a journey.
And its friends like you whom I meet along the way who make the journey so much easier and happier!
I love you very much and hope that you'll find everything in life that you are looking for :) If you ever need anything, just remember that there is one friend here who will always be there for you, and will never be too busy for you.
How can I ever be too busy for my dear laddu gobbling, almost-indian oreo cream?!!! :D :D :D
(I still think chicken is a vegetable!! :P)
