Some say that love has a way of making life seem a whole lot prettier. I was rehearsing, yet again, for another presentation tomorrow and I said to myself, I need to write this down. I’ve always been pretty clear about what I want in my other half, but at some point, I decided to just let it come and for once try to expect nothing. I know its still fairly early to conclude, but he must have been doing something right to make me feel this way. I’m just really happy because I’m gonna be done with masters and will be travelling quite a bit this year. I’m trying my very best not to jinx anything, but just thought I’d pen this down in case I look back and wonder.
Thank you for always trying to be there for me, being the oh-so supportive pillar. To make plans according to my timezone, just so you can squeeze in time after a long day at work to have a couple of hours with me. To call me at random times throughout the day just because I’m vaguely mentioned once that sometimes I get lonely (mainly coz I miss home). Knowing that you really listen to my complaints, I know I tend to ramble about all sort of nonsense but you somehow managed to pick up the main issue on what’s bothering me and fix it. Like some superhero yknow. I love how we’re so ridiculously hilarious together because all we do is laugh at absolutely everything and anything.
I don’t get why you think I’m so funny, why would you even laugh when I’m crying about stress from work. I sent him an image of Blackmores’ Stress and Anxiety relieve bottle, because I tend to get chest pains towards the end of semester due to stress. He told me over a phone call saying, “I will call you throughout the day, even if its a short 5 minutes call just to make sure you don’t get too stressed up. And it’s okay to ignore my phone calls if it gets too annoying.” LOL. I love how you really see me for who I am. I’ve always been critical when it comes to questioning what others see in me, that’s usually how I gauge people, based on what they observe. People always choose to see what they want to see, and that’s one way of understanding a person’s view point on things. So, what I adore most about him? Unlike me, he doesn’t fire me with an essay or a love poem, but he has his way of saying things at the most unexpected times in the most unexpected way!
I love that you’re such a smiley person like me! It’s like a freaking Colgate-ad face off whenever we talk. Hello lets see who can hold the longest smile with our teeths going EEEE…EEE. The winner is pretty damn obvious. I love that I don’t feel the need to question his intentions or get provoked over small issues because I tend to over analyze things. It is in my nature to observe and understand things from different perspectives. So for this instance, this is definitely the most ‘stable’ I’ve been over the years. No crazy late night fights because he’s so composed when it comes to dealing with me and my emotions. The combustion usually ends with sparkly dust floating in the air. It’s true yknow, when they say that the people in your life plays a great role in influencing and shaping the way you look at life. I’m seeing things in much more positive way lately.
As the matter in fact, I HAD A ROMANTIC weekend. It was just me preparing this huge bag of presents and I made aglio olio pasta at 4am just so I can get my friend to deliver it back home to Malaysia within the same day. A pasta delivered via Air Asia flown 8 hours from Melbourne to Kuala Lumpur. I’m not sure how can I express this odd urge to be hopelessly romantic, but its not something I do very often. Some say that opposites attract. Some say that you need similarities to stay together. Based on my own experience, I’d say both! In my humble opinion, I personally enjoy the never ending learning process and that keeps me interested. You need that common ground i.e. similar family upbringing, hobbies, interest, and you definitely need to want the same thing at the same time in order to make anything happen. Timing is EVERYTHING. It can make and break any relationship. I love someone who shares the same hunger for a better version of ourselves. I love that he understands why I do what I do, and gives me his full support in pursuing my dreams. I love his humility and the way one deals with people on a daily basis. I love it when someone doesn’t try too hard or seem like they know it all.
It’s okay to not know it all. And hell yeah its absolutely okay to make mistakes. Just learn from it and get better.
Anyway, I can’t wait to be home!!!
