Ai Rene wrote on my wall & read what she said to me! 😀

I FEEL SO WELCOMED, I’M SO HAPPY!!! SO EXCITED I CAN FEEL MY HEART JUMPING CUZ MY FEET CAN’T AT THE MOMENT (at the office)!

Does departing makes you cry? The only girl who managed to make me shed tears so far is none other than my bestest friend Ai Rene. I never dropped a tear for any friend who left me to another country before. But every time this girl does it, I can never stop myself from feeling very… very.. very uber sad.
I met her at the Tasmania airport. Maybe earlier, complete strangers. It was the first time in my life leaving Malaysia to stay in a foreign country. This may sound like a simple sentence but trust me, it wasn’t all that easy.
I was by myself, had no one; and by fate, God arranged us to meet. Sounds so gay but no, we like beef.
At the corner of my eyes I saw this girl in turquoise. She didn’t look too stuck up nor too friendly. She has this very neutral facial expression with a hidden faint smile in her. With her specs on, I thought she is getting a cert in education or something, but it turned out to be MASTERS in Architecture O.o”
I remember clearly how it was like. The hot summer air, the deceiving wind, the air smelt like hay… Our cab ride from the airport to town was when we started introducing ourselves. I immediately knew this girl is awesome! She is my favourite Rolling Stone mag.
Pic taken at our very first event we attended together shortly after settling down @ Tassie – Eve’s Night. A church thing.
There’s this coincidence that I really love about us. My full name, is Tey Cindy, while her name is Tan Ai Rene. So there is no Cindy Tey Xin Yi or Airene Tan Ai Ling. That wouldn’t have make any sense at all. xD
Our upbringings are pretty much similar considering the fact that both our mothers were school teachers! Plus, PLUS, our mothers are from North Malaysia, a neighbouring state; which means we naturally have the same slang when we speak! It’s like the bahasa in Kelantan is very much different from the bahasa we use down South.
This was where we used to hang out. It became a compulsory for me to buy soy milk here at this cafe’ and this red shirt fler would make fun of me. Misses it deadly!
Ai Rene & I can talk about aaaaanything and by anything, I meant 360 degrees. We discussed about all areas a woman has in her life, or we can not talk, and still feel like we talked. HAHA (like Ultramans).
Give me a pie it will never become a chart because when it comes to this friendship, division does not exists. Both of us can share (AND perfectly agree in the differences of) our thoughts / views. This is very crucial in every relationship don’t you agree?
There is a thin fine line in everything, but with Ai Rene, everything is made easy. Barriers will never build up and get in the way. 🙂
& oh. ANOTHER thing I looovvveee about her is her spontaneity. Seriously! No one I know rocks life with the right momentum but this girl. It is always good to have a balance in everything and usually Libras have that, but sadly they are not the most rational creatures on earth. Ai Rene knows how to break even between work N’ play.
The picture above is about our unforgettable trip to Melaka with two guys. One of em is my ex. Haha what the – ALL spontaneous people who just hit the road, jump into a car, N’ GO. Loves it!
I believe life is to be loved. But the people around me; their stupidity and negativity always fails my stand on this. And no one, no one gives me the kind of vibe and force to ‘live life love it’ but this BFF of mine. I feel so lucky.
Our 1st X’mas celebration together with short hair – White Christmas <3
After a year of not having Ai Rene in my life, finally she came back to tanah air for a month. Even though we only managed to spend 2 days together, I am glad. I am so glad to find out that time and distance does not change anything between us. NOT A BIT I SWEAR. That makes us stronger than a couple undergoing LDR (long distance relationship)!
Picture taken a month ago – looks like our hair grows at the same pace too! 😀
If you are wondering why we posed like cranes,
we were just trying to show off our newly painted toe nails in the nail bar but the Philippino lady chopped our feet off. lol
I miss Ai Rene. I miss her! Can die.
Thank God I’m flying to Australia this May ’10 to find her. Whatever it is, nothing is gonna stop me from going. If I have to quit my job, then maybe I have to~ I am gravely starting to think that all this is starting to sound so so gay but hey, gay (happy) it is!
Gold Coast Brisbane is the way to go, baybeh~! Just like the old times. Just like the old times. Maybe I’ll find some inspiration there with the hand of this angel of mine, continue my Masters there… & hey! That means Cin City would under Nuffnang OZ! Would you still like it that way? 😀
