THE YEAR 2013 ended on a quiet note, but a sweet one…
… with loads of good wishes and messages from family, relatives and friends.
I will fondly remember the first new year message came from YP at 12.01am. A former colleague of two years (during which we’d worked, travelled, laughed and cried together), our friendship has lasted 22 years now. I was extremely touched by an sms she sent me back on 18th November 2012 which said: “Hi, I was reading a copy of Calvin and Hobbes today. When I came to the last page, I realised then that it was a birthday gift from you. You wrote a lovely note “… that unlike Hobbes who is an imaginary friend, we are real friends.” Its pages are yellowing a bit but it is most precious to me, esp now that the years have gone by. It’s such a wonderful, wonderful keepsake now.” Thank you YP!
I also had a good hour-long chat via WA with a dear schoolmate now in Singapore. Thank you ST for sharing all those wonderful photos and updates.
And all these while I was keeping Little Em company on the board game!
