To Yuxing-Unnie… And to all the People Who Have Been Reading this Blog.
Haha. I have just told you one thing I have always wanted to say. And I’m telling you again that whenever you give your insights about my articles, whether it is in agreement or in contrast of what I said, I am delighted. I’m seriously delighted.
Because through you, I am convinced that there is someone who pays attention to the attention-seeking, trying hard writer that I am. Because of you, I started believing that I have thoughts worth sharing and though not technically, I am worth listening to. Because of you, I knew more things I’m good at.
Whenever I get lonely and I need someone to tell me that everything’s gonna be okay, you’re always there. Though we’re literally oceans apart and I don’t think we’ll be meeting each other in person anytime soon, nothing compares to the friendship we have. Through thick and thin, I know you’re there.
And with that, I just want you to know that I’m sticking with you. I have always wanted to say this to you again but I guess, my busy schedule and my shyness always gets in the way. This may sound so funny as how it did before but I just want to remind you that people come and go out of my life like a fast-paced story. Most people I love chose to leave me hanging and it hurt me. I am that unfortunate and I don’t know what I did in my past life to deserve such hate. But I am proud to say that I am unfortunate with romance but when it comes to friends, and I mean REAL FRIENDS, I know I’m the luckiest bitch in the world.
If not, I wouldn’t have known you.
Of course, there are lots of other people who play the same role as yours in my life. But you know what? I don’t look at people similarly. I find the differences and you are one of those who stand out.
Maybe it’s because you are my first foreign friend. Maybe it’s because I find it amazing how we both can understand each other’s personality even though we haven’t met yet. Maybe it’s because I see myself in you – only, a Singaporean version.
Yes, that’s how it is. I see myself in you and I am sure that I have told you this already. It’s not a compliment, I know. I wouldn’t even blame you if you find it insulting. But that truth remains. You are my other person and I am just so glad that you’re there.
I remember, it’s that article about miracles which drew you to my blog. If I remember it correctly, I said there that if a person encounters a miracle and it does not suit his taste and definition of the word, it is eternally rejected. Now, I’m telling you that I am thankful to God that I knew that fact beforehand. If I didn’t, I bet I’ll be living a life without you on it.
Thank you for being a miracle to me, Unnie. Thank you.
And to people who have subscribed to this blog, not just because of that crappy SS3 Manila FAQs, but because they find my articles worth the read, I KNOW I CAN NEVER THANK YOU ENOUGH. I believe in miracles and I am just so lucky to have you all around.
