10 years on, dreams become reality. And yet, some things have remained steadfast and constant.
Like your curious affinity to soccer jerseys and baffling fascination for the Chinese classics “Romance of the Three Kingdoms” and “Tale of Water Margin”, not to mention all things Napoleon.
Like my indecisiveness and slight perfectionist streak.
Like our shared love for crabs (and each other of course).
Perhaps it was the relaxing sea breeze, or the fact that being back at a forgotten old haunt brought back much fond memories, or simply because we were ravenous from having saved our stomachs for the much anticipated celebratory meal that the crabs tasted quite out of this world. After that evening, move over No Signboard, we officially declared ourselves back to the Jumbo camp!
No presents, no cards needed. Just you and me and our hearty feast. :)
Your remaining army days, our NUS days and those carefree pak tor years, my first foray into the big big world, your roller-coaster ride of a career, my stint in Japan, our big day, the subsequent move to HK, seeing the world together, building a home, starting a family.
You and I, we’ve come a long way baby.
Happy 10th year since the day we found each other.
