Journey called Life (Keeping in Touch)
When you are away from your friends, what do you to keep in touch with your friends? Calls? Postcards? Gifts?
Most of us have our very own internet connections and our own IM (Instant Messaging) clients that enabled us to chat in real time, enabling levels of communications that haven't been there even as recent as 5 years ago. The instantaneous transmission of information through the internet had taken down the barriers of distance, and with the rising popularity of video enabled chat, it seems as if the person is sitting right in front of us, talking the time away. Of course, the only thing that is missing is the same environment and touch :p
For me, to compliment the electronic form of communication, I do send a lot of cards for lots of occasions to my friends all over the world. Most of the time there will be lots of postcards that are sent out almost every month now to quite a lot of people to let them know that I still remember them. It's always nice to get emails telling me that they have received their cards and how much they like it. Occasionally, I do send out birthday cards to the people whose birthday still haven't escaped my memory. (Sorry Kim, always got your birthday wrong at 28th of June. Like i said, too many people having birthdays at the same stretch of time :p) There was one time when Jo Ling told me not to send her anymore post cards because I am making her feeling guilty (for not sending anything back). Well, for me, it's the intentions that really count. I am not hoping that you guys return my gestures, just want to let you guys know that I still do remember you :)
The second thing that I always like to do is to call people (Esther, I am still laughing at your "reaction" :P) out of no time. Hehe... Seems like taking people by surprise is still one of my very strong points after all. Then again, there seemed to be people who cannot be contacted by phone (like Kean Aun and his phone which is used to boil porridge, or Boon Phiaw who never answers his phone). For these people, I won't bother to kacau them with their stuffs... *grins*
That's all about my simple post this time. It's time for me to go oi oi liao. Good night everybody
*Let's create a world full of LOVE~
Just took out 3 of my wisdom teeth last Monday. The stitches are still there to help the gum heal faster, and I think I am pretty sick of eating liquid foods liao. On the other hand, I think I like the porridges that I have been cooking... hehe... Anyway, if there are enough demands, i think i will post the gory details of the operation later on :p
written this post after the stupid windows installation CD refused to boot properly, leaving me a bit out of way to reinstall my copy of windows..
