Points to remember in life:

  • Good times are even better when they’re shared.
  • A good long talk can cure almost anything.
  • Everyone needs someone with whom to share their secrets.
  • Listening is just as important as talking.
  • An understanding friend is better than a therapist; and cheaper too!
  • Laughter makes the world a happier place.
  • Friends are like wine; they get better with age.
  • Sometimes you just need a shoulder to cry on.
  • Great minds think alike, especially when they are female!
  • When it comes to “bonding,” females do it better.
  • Girls just want to have fun.
  • It’s important to make time to do “girl things.”
  • Calories don’t count when you are having lunch [or any other food] with your girlfriends.
  • You can never have too many shoes.
  • Gems may be precious, but friendship is priceless.

To all my girlfriends, in Singapore or in Melbourne or in France or in the US or anywhere else.

It’s hard to wait for something that you know might not happen,

but it’s even harder to give up, when you know it’s everything u ever wanted.

“You can never tell what people are thinking and feeling unless they tell you, and usually they lie. you ask them, ‘Whats wrong?’ and they say ‘Nothing’. You accept this because it’s easier than digging for the truth. People smile when they want to cry, they laugh when they want to scream and shout. They pretend like nothing is wrong because they don’t want to face the truth. Things aren’t always rainbows and butterflies, sometimes you gotta scream and cry your anger and sadness to the world, because you can only hold it in for so long before something in you snaps. so when you want to cry, cry. When you want to scream, scream. Don’t hide behind fake smiles, it’s ok to not be alright.”

“Because, that’s the thing about love, really. No one will love you how you want to be loved, they’ll love you in the only ways they know how. Life throws everyone down drastically different paths so how can we expect everyone to love in the same way? The person you’ll spend your lifetime with will love you in their way and you’ll love in yours, and maybe you’ll meet in the middle and it’ll last. None of us know what we’re doing, you see, we’re just fumbling for matches in the dark. If you’re lucky, you might eventually just strike the right one.”

I’ve told my friends this countless times: I’ve never had the white wedding dream that all little girls have. But that doesn’t mean I don’t love weddings all the same. I think it’s been too long since I’ve been to one. There’s just something about weddings and watching a couple proclaim their love for each other in front of the people who matter the most. It kinda’ gives me hope… That one day we’d all find our special someones.

“No matter how thick skinned we try to be, there’s millions of electrifying nerve endings in there, open and exposed and feeling way too much. Try as we might to keep from feeling pain, sometimes it’s just unavoidable. Sometimes that’s the only thing left… just feeling.”

Every story had a meaning to it. Meanings we’d only come to comprehend at 21.
