Hello everyone! I know a little bit of a break in the post updates here, was a bit tied up. A close friend was visiting from India and also my little girl had her first ballet concert and it went on super well, and we are so very proud of her.
I’ve wanted to write this post for quite some time now, so no better time to jot down my thoughts when I am super refreshed after a friend’s dose. It’s hard to be touch with your childhood friends, your cousins, and people to whom you were connected to when you were young, as most of them don’t stay at the same place any more and you have to make an effort to be in touch emotionally, though all the free message services and social media has made it easy and technology has squished everything we need (to stay connected) in our cell phones, but that emotional touch needs your quality time and effort. The connection that you feel with your childhood friends is like no other. Even if they are meeting you after longest of times, you just switch back on. There is no time lag in the thoughts, you talk about your present and future, but the best talks are still the ones filled with nostalgia of the past. Talking about school, college, sleepovers, first loves, the fights, the exams and what not. The secrets that your friends know, no one else does and the blackmailing that they can do, well there’s no match to it either 🙂
It is so refreshing to be around your loved ones and talk about anything under the sun. They say you can choose your friends, but I guess its up to us to choose to be in touch with the people who matter to us. Friends are treasures, and god forgot to put them in our family trees but gave us the opportunity to find them and make them a part of our lives. I am sure most of you feel the same!!
Anyways, its always great to have family and friends over and I’ve noticed that when somebody is visiting you, you tend to become the tour guide and love to show off the place you stay in. Hong Kong is not a very big place but there are tons of places to see. Now I need to start bugging some other people to come and visit me 🙂 . Until next time its Ciao from me xx
