"The greatest weakness of most humans
is their hesitancy to tell others
Those are just some of the things I miss doing with you. However, if there is one thing I wish I'd I hope I won't have to go through again, that would be the agony of bidding farewell at the airport. Like I've said before, I have a love-hate relationship with the place they call airport. It has always been me leaving you behind; but you know what, I am almost certain that the feeling of walking into the departure hall and not having you coming together with me, is as hard as you seeing me disappearing out of your sight. I have a simple wish; that is we would not have to go on separate ways again the next time we are in the airport. I have no idea when will that happen; of course I hope it will be as soon as possible but that is not something for us to decide. As I'm typing this entry, you just called me, telling me that you are at the mall waiting for the bus. You sounded so excited. See, like I just said earlier, there won't be anything as exciting as shopping to you, right? Not even me, no? I don't plan to crap too much in this entry because if I were to write everything what I wanna tell you, this will turn into an endless entry. I hope you will like this short entry, to mark our second anniversary. Thanks to the function that allows me to edit the mistake made in each entries, you won't find any "fivety"-kind-of spelling error (an inside joke) in this entry haha. Don't have to scroll up and to confirm it, because I have done it several times. Stay cheerful as always and take good care of yourself in my absence, my lovable hamster. With love,
how much they love them while they're alive."

Ask yourself when was the last time you tell your Mom that you love her.
It has been a two-year-long journey.
But I just feel as if it was just yesterday that we call ourselves a couple. It was more like a secret between both of us in the beginning, wasn't it? Remember how we were hesitating whether or not we should announce our status to our parents, family and friends? I still remember how you told your Mom that you already had a boyfriend.
"Eh, Mommy, I got a boyfriend already, you know. Although we are on a long-distance relationship, I don't care what you will say about it. I want this."
It was almost like a dictatorial announcement towards your Mom, rather than to listen to her opinion, listen to what she had to say. Mom being her usual self like any other time, it was fortunate that she didn't say this to you in return, "Aiyaaa, you're trying to show off isit?"
You know, in that kind of tone that she always speak to me, in which I'm already expert in imitating that familiar tone since I sorta "praised" her cooking last time haha.
For the second straight year, we couldn't celebrate this day together. Perhaps that is the reason behind the fact that people rarely believe in long-distance-relationship. Being in this kind of relationship, it is almost certain that we would never be able to enjoy, to feel and to understand how is it like to be together, doing what couples do together most of the time. However, we are doing great so far, aren't we?
Nevertheless, reflecting to the times we had gone through so far, I do admit that we sometimes did quite badly during those periods.
We sometimes envy those couples who get to have dinner together, kick the ball in the field together, go to pasar malam together, tease and pinch each other, laugh when one of us do some silly stuff, watch a romantic movie together, or go travelling together. Of all these things couples always do together, I guess I know what you envy them the most - that would be none other than to go shopping together.
Please tell me I'm wrong.
Shopping together with you is just one of the many things I miss doing with you.
# 1 - I miss drawing silly pictures with you, and we would compare whose drawing is better. Never mind, like what we've agreed, we will let KnK judge, okay? # 2 - I miss giving your free Japanese lesson, and I'm glad you're a fast learner. But the bad thing is, you forget what you've just learned very fast at the same time. I think you have stolen some of my kingyo syndrome haha. # 3 - I miss webcaming with you at the airport, waiting for your connecting flights. # 4 - I miss the moment of getting to see you at the arrival hall, waiting for me with your cheerful but a bit blur face. # 5 - I miss looking at you putting on your make-up, although all I know about make-up is to take the lipstick and randomly draw it on the lips.
# 6- I miss making you say that my cooking is delicious, although the fact is that they really taste nice haha wtf. # 7- I miss going to the fishing village and we would get your favourite 20 cents red-bean ice-cream, and eat the ice-cream while walking through the streets of the village, much to the weird stares from the half naked uncles and little kids who runs everywhere. # 8 - I miss riding on the duck boat with you and boasting how beautiful the Lake Garden is. Malacca doesn't have a proper place to jog, does it? # 9 - I miss looking at how you really concentrate when you're baking. Being "scientific" not only when you are doing your medical stuff, you are still the same even when you bake. Maybe that is the reason why my cake always ended up uncooked because I'm too "unscientific" and random when it comes to baking haha.
# 10 - I miss hopping onto the see-saw and spend the evening together at the playground opposite your house, while counting at the number of crows in the sky haha.
# 11 - I miss the posing session when we were waiting for our orders to be served, and how Vic would look at us from afar and give his trademark annoying face haha. By the way, remember the lady at Secret Recipe kept on staring at us when we camwhore there? # 12 - I miss welcoming the New Year under the beautiful display of fireworks in the heart of Malacca town.
# 13 - I miss taking Puripura with you, and I will take you to try the more canggih one in Japan one day.
Your blur bunny
