If there’s one place in my bucket list that I wouldn’t skimp on (resources-wise), that would be Japan. I feel my fernweh going stronger as years pass by… longing for this foreign land that I’ve never been personally but have read so much about.
It’s funny where life takes us. The places we go to, the people we meet along the way, the experiences and lessons we forever keep in our hearts.. I always believe there’s a reason for everything. One thing that happens, whether happy or not, is there to make us say that “I experience this, I understand how it feels now.”
A month ago I greeted a friend Happy Birthday. Mentioning that my gift will be given late, she invited me to go out with the little brother, Sean. In a way you can say we are long time friends. We’ve known each other since 2007. But I’ve never had much discussions with her and I’m closer with Sean. It was usually common courtesy. Simple hi-hello, invitation to eat when she was eating or simple questions about series, movies or books.
Because I was their brother’s then-girlfriend.
