The chase. The stage where you get to know the person & grow to love them. You talk to them constantly & text them. They’re usually the last person you talk to before you go to bed. You wake up to goodmorning texts from them & they’re on your mind throughout the day. As you two grow closer, you learn more about each other that makes you fall even deeper in love with them. Their flaws aren’t really flaws to you & everything they do just makes you light up. You guys share the same taste in music & do cute things for each other. You try to impress one another & I bet your friends tease you two about getting together.
The facebook status change. So it’s official. Facebook official. You two are now “In A Relationship”. Congratulations ! Your friends “like” it & comment on it. Don’t even deny that you like the attention. Admit it, honeymoon days & the pillowtalk stage is great. (;
Comfortable. You guys have reached a level of comfort with each other. You stopped trying to hard to impress one another & gradually you grow so accustomed to them if you’re a girl you lose the need to doll up & look your best every time you see them. Sometimes you may miss being single. It’s weird, when you’re single you want to be in a relationship but once you’re in one you sort of miss being single. You miss the freedom & now you’re responsible for another person’s feelings. But you shouldn’t feel that way constantly, or maybe you just can’t settle down.
Those stay-up-all-night-soul-crushing fights. You two have your first real fight. It was bound to happen eventually. Usually it brings you two closer because like they say, those who fight still care for each other. Those fights will either cause you to break up, or if you two endure, your love for each other will grow stronger & more secure. You realize the other person isn’t perfect, or exactly how you thought they were, as you become even more entwined in their life, but you love them despite your expectations.
The grass is greener on the other side syndrome. There comes a point where you wonder if someone else could make you happier. If there’s someone out there that will connect to you better or love you better. The thing is, when they get you, most guys stop doing the things they used to. You miss how hard he would try & the cute things he’d do. It seems like he’s not putting in as much effort as the other guy who does cute things for you but face it, those insignificant things are nothing compared to the love he has for you. When a guy truly loves you, best believe you have his heart in the palm of his hands.
Long term. Maybe it’s 6 months, or maybe it’s a year. But when you two have made it so far together that you’re considered long term, that’s an accomplishment because most couples around this age only last a few months.
If you’re single, just wait, the right one is somewhere (: & If you’re in a relationship, appreciate the person you love & treat them with kindness & respect; you don’t know how lucky you are to have them.
I am writing to you to inform you that I am greatly disappointed and concerned with your recent Coca-Cola advertisement during this month of Ramadan on Warna 94.2 FM. I feel that the advertisement is instilling negative habits and lifestyle in the young and the Malay population…
“He’s not perfect. You aren’t either, and the two of you will never be perfect. But if he can make you laugh at least once, causes you to think twice, and if he admits to being human and making mistakes, hold on to him and give him the most you can. He isn’t going to quote poetry, he’s not thinking about you every moment, but he will give you a part of him that he knows you could break. Don’t hurt him, don’t change him, and don’t expect more than he can give. Don’t analyze. Smile when he makes you happy, yell when he makes you mad, and miss him when he’s not there. Love hard when there is love to be had. Because perfect guys don’t exist, but there’s always one guy that is perfect for you.”—Bob Marley (via raindropsonredroses) (via loveflummery)
I wouldn’t say Singapore is the most perfect country to be in. All the criticism shall be another whole story. NDP 2000, still clear in my memory being in the NCC marching contingent, the parade was one of the highlights of my life.
How great would it be if the age of camera phones, digital cameras have started much earlier then. I don’t think I remember of any photos from back then.
If my memory serves me well, it was President S.R. Nathan’s first ever parade as the President of Singapore. It was also held at the Padang. Nice place yeah. It was the year where the song “Home” by Kit Chan made its debut. This song was a tear-jerker, haha!
..And since I made it here I can make it anywhere..
