I want to take up penpaling again. I used to have like 5 or 6 of them around the world and our correspondences stayed on like for a year or so. Some more than 2 years. The local ones, more than 3. Some more than 5.

Because of many trials and tribulations, not to mention the funny way life turns us upside down, I've lost contact with these people. Some due to my parts of not enough efforts being put in, some from their parts. For me, my penpaling activity stopped abruptly right after I started working. Many things contributed to that which I can safely say resulted in my sudden lack of life. As good as it is my life now, but yes my life was so much richer when penpals were around.

I can't imagine of a person who doesn't like receiving a letter. The stamps, the handwriting, the classic streaks of blue and red on the envelope, the fun paper they use to wite on, the token of appreciation no matter how worthless it seems - they still manage to be priceless, the idea of knowing somebody you've never met on the other side of the world has touched them and it's now in your hands tracing every line, every bumps, every scribble. You have no excuse not to respect the amount of care and time they have taken to write you.

I really really loved writing letters to my penpals. Now that I think my life is back on track, I'd love for another recreational focus to balance it with. Don't want it to be forever heavy on one side do I? What do you think of too salty nasi lemak? Not good right. So I think this is the right time to make it less salty. No wonder I feel a certain discontent sometimes. I've been eating nasi lemak masin for 2 years already!

Well I better get going. Haven't been out of bed all day. Yeap believe it.

Was surfing around and found this quote:
“Today, I marry my friend. The one I laugh with, live for, dream with, and love.”

Perfect for a wedding speech by either the groom or the bride don't you think? Perfect universal last sentence in your speech. Not for mine obviously but you know how simple sentence like that can have me up in the clouds for a second there. Hehehe.
