Her shyness’s secret identity must not be revealed…
*grin* So that is my dearest Diane, who’s back from Canada with her husband Keith but only for a couple of days. I was so happy that she could make it for the Ultimate Magic official launch at The Arena in Clarke Quay, because her schedule’s just so packed. It’s been 2 years since she came back to Singapore and naturally there’s so many things fr her to do and tons of people to catch up with.
We’ve been so close since we met each other in MGS and became best buds at Primary 2, so much so, our families know each other and yes… I cried buckets when I had too send her off over two years ago when she left with Keith’s family to Canada & we didn’t know how long it’d be till she came back again. She flew back last week because her brother-in-law’s wedding took place right smack on my birthday, 16 Oct!
Very coincidentally, Diane and I are exactly a month apart. Since we were kids, I was always the more protective one because she was always such a sweet softie and being taken advantage off by mean girls. We both were bookworms and LOVED Nancy Drew, so we even had a little ‘detective agency’ with namecards and all, to solve mysteries. LOL. It was seriously hilarious.
My heart was singing at her wedding (we were 21!), when the bride looked so very beautiful as she walked down the aisle and married her long time boyfriend (now wonderful husband) Keith. I was her bridesmaid and I choked back tears because I was just so happy that Diane found her soulmate so early.
I couldn’t really talk to her on the night of Ultimate Magic’s official launch, so we spent hours catching up right after my business meeting ended in the early afternoon today. It was precious time because I had to leave just after 4pm to make it for my 5pm show at the club. I’m really glad our friendship superceeds superficial ones which are ‘high maintenance’. We still had that chemistry and instantly picked up from where we left off without any awkwardness.
We’re older, and though there’s been changes we’re still the same girls. I don’t know when I’ll see Diane again, but it’d probably be after 2010. She says that though she expected, she’s still proud that I’m still the same person, that I’m grounded enough to not become some sort of unreasonable diva despite all the attention I’ve been getting. Well, duh!!! *grin* It’s only people who don’t actually know me who’d make such judgemental assumptions.
Here’s to our friendship sweetie… we’ve been there for each other for almost 2 decades. Isn’t that just simply amazing!?! I look forward to the years to come
