Distance can’t stop what’s meant to be.

I exist in two places, here and wherever you are.

Distance gives us a reason to love harder. I met my husband last week for 16 days after 6 months of being apart and realized that loving someone you don’t see everyday is not a bad thing. It’s just a proof that love is not in sight but in the heart. What people might not realized is that we’ve been together for as long as I could ever imagine since 2012. Being apart is very hard for us, but I pray that everything will go smoothly from here on out.

When two hearts are meant for each other, I believe that no distance is too far, no time is too long and no other love can break them apart. The world is actually much smaller now that we thought about it. The first night after the separation of not having him by my side was the worst feeling, and not surprisingly I know he feels the same way too.

Honestly, I think we’ve grown into two very different but similar people now, but that does not change who we are. If not, our love got much stronger and I feel complete when I’m with him even for a short while.

The trip was nothing that I imagined it to be, it was so much better than expected and I am so proud of him for what he’s achieved in his life. And the best thing is, I watched him. I watched him struggled, I watched him having his sleepless nights working towards his goals, he never gave up even once. I watched him since 2012 up til 2018, he grew so much and as a wife, the best thing you’d wanna have in your relationship is growing old together with your partner, and this means the world to me seeing him being strong for the both of us halfway across the world.

I could talk for ages on how I felt but lets not share everything just yet. But as far as the world should know is, I got lucky that I married my best friend, that we’ve grown together over time and that we were so close to begin with. This made distance between us harder but at the same time, hopefully worth it.

Sayang, if you’re reading this, I love you.

I love you with all my heart.

Take care.IMG_8503

I’m now a wife of an expatriate

I would have never imagined myself to be separated from my husband for a very long time. And now I have to, after 6 years.

We have spent every second together being annoyed with each other for as long as I could remember, and yesterday was the moment when I regretted for not spending more time with him before he left. It has only been one night, and he hasn’t even landed yet, but I’m bawling my eyes out, internally. Well, I haven’t cried alone, yet, probably because I’m still trying to keep myself busy.

Living far from him will be my most challenging obstacles I would ever have to face in my life, he is my everything. Sure, he annoys me sometimes, he gets into heated arguments with me, he likes to steal my food while I’m eating, but he’ll always be my main. Now, my bed is too large for me, the room feels like it’s too empty without him, he doesn’t make silly jokes anymore, it’s just boring without him in my life. 2018 will surely be different for me.

Before he departed from Singapore last night, I asked him when would I be able to meet him, and he said, probably in June. My heart jumps so high, it almost flew right out of my body. I can’t wait to meet this wonderful man of mine, be it another 5 months, it’s something I’ll definitely look forward to this year.

Being 23 isn’t so bad.

Guess who turned 23 yesterday? Me!

People might think being 23 is still young, but come on, who are you guys kidding? It is time to gain real responsibilities, face the future and actually act on whatever it is that you have just started planning earlier this year.

But being 23 is not so bad. You’re allowed to go to bars with a more mature looking face, people wouldn’t have second guessed you whether you’re already 21 or not, and you’re practically legal to do anything, even go to jail! Lol.

Being born in January makes you gain hope of your life earlier than anyone else, (well, unless you’re born earlier than me). I feel like it gives me a new perspective, like I can foresee the future and what lies ahead of me. Because I was looking forward to my birthday, and now that it is over, I can look forward to something else, something bigger.

My birthday celebration yesterday was phenomenal. I am gifted with an incredible husband that knows me inside out, that made it so memorable I can cry of happiness while reminiscing about it again.

He was the first to wish me Happy Birthday at 12am, and then we spend the whole night just talking and talking until 4am. I love when we spend time talking before we sleep, it’s just so relaxing for me. That morning we woke up late, but not too late, then we went to brunch at the Penn Stater Hotel, called the Gardens Restaurant. They offered a buffet which was so tasty, oh my god I feel hungry now.

Right after brunch, he pampered me with a couple’s massage which is pretty awesome. I haven’t had the best massage experience so far, but this, hands down, the best massage I have ever felt. They even have me a facial therapy, which was so relaxing, I almost slept the way through. The place was right in State College, called the Artemis Massage Studio. I immediately fell in love with the place due to its ambiance and the environment, I could just spend hours there and just lay down waiting for someone to give me a massage. It was incredible, enough said.

Not enough with the surprises, Hafid pulled the best surprise yet last night when he blindfolded me and bring me to this amazing place to celebrate my birthday dinner with all of my friends. Oh my, I was so shocked and surprised that they planned it so beautifully and the decorations were so on point, it was the best and happiest celebration ever.

Imagine being blindfolded right after you got in the car, and didn’t know where you were heading and, suddenly, surprised! Everyone was there, without you even knowing the slightest hint about it. Well, initially I thought Hafid was bringing us for dinner, just the two of us, like we usually do, but it was a surprise to find out that everybody is there, celebrating it with you. It was the best feeling, ever.

Words cannot describe the situation was last night, I might just pour in some pictures. Enjoy! Thank you again to those who wish and celebrating it with me. It was the best.
