I can’t recall who came up with this birthday message thing but for this year, the girls and I have to come up with a short birthday speech about our friendship on our birthdays. As my birthday is drawing near and that I’ll be meeting the girls later this evening for my birthday celebration, I thought I’d be smart and post it up on my blog now.
Those who know me well will know that I don’t have a lot of friends. Ten years ago, I have six close friends. Ten years later, I still have six close friends and they’re the same six people. Other than these six individuals, I don’t know of any other people who I can label as friends. Acquaintances maybe but definitely not friends. I don’t make friends easily, I suppose. Because of that, I’m very thankful that I’ve come to know you girls (Shir, Val and Koreen). Thanks for making my three years at the polytechnic so memorable and for making our MIS years more bearable. I wouldn’t have survived it without you girls. Our silly poly chatting sessions and dreadful project-discussions days are some of the many things that we’ll remember by and joke about even when we’re all old and wrinkly. I’m glad that I have these memories to share with you girls.
We might have some disagreements and misunderstandings amongst us but I always hope that we can be more open towards one another and in turn know one another better. I must also thank you girls for putting up with me all these years and for giving me all the encouragement I need during my lousy days. I really appreciate them, even though I don’t always say it out.
Without you girls, I’d have nobody to complain to. Without you girls, I’d have nobody to disturb when I’m on Skype or MSN. Without you girls, I’d have nobody to travel with. Without you girls, nobody will read my blog. Without you girls, I’d be pretty much a loner. I’d like to thank you girls for the ten years of friendship and I hope there’ll be many, many more years to come.
You girls should be touched that I stayed up so late to write this, especially since I’m still recovering from a cold. Hahaha. Don’t you dare grill me later! Go read it yourself!
