Wew…. Just back from Sg 2 days ago. I stayed there for a week to get my employment pass done. Well, I also visited my friends in NTU. They had no idea about my short trip to Sg and definitely I enjoyed each and every moment of their surprise mimics when they saw me. It’s been three months since the last time I saw them so it was really an overwhelming moment to have them back together again in one big gathering. They are my family when I was in NTU for almost 4 years. Some of them were my neighbours, some of them were my roommates, and the rest were my “landlords” who provided me with their little space for me to spend a night or two when I had no place to stay. So, yah…. I owe them a lot. Haha….
I am a type of person who depends more on friends than family. I learned a lot from friends and society compared to what I got at home. I was exposed to Christianity by school and friends, choosing my own school and decide it by myself, shaping my behavior from what I saw and experienced from the environment. Perhaps that’s why I often feel so attached to friends and regard them as my family. 3.5 years in foreign country wasn’t an easy thing to deal with, especially for someone like me who usually stay at home and can’t sleep in any other place but my own room. I needed people, needed other existence of human being to support me in order for me not to become crazy, needed people to share my thoughts, my ideas, and my caring and love of course…. And they were there…. Satisfying my needs each and every day, keeping me sane from month to month (especially when exam’s approaching), and sometimes by simply being there as long as I know there are some people out there other than me. I was lucky to know them, I am lucky to still have them as part of my life, and I hope I will always be fortunate to keep them forever in my storybook of life. So, my friends….. Remember to eat well, rest well and study well of coz…. I’ll see you in our convocation next July…. We started the race together, we will end it together…..
