I was blown away!

This is a picture of me and my love in Melbourne. I remember the day very vividly, we had just arrived late the night before, crashed at a motel near the airport and came down to the city to explore the place. It was just after we’ve checked into Rydges @ Swanston and we’re just about to take a tram for breakfast at Hardware Lane.

It wasn’t the moment I fell in love with her (that was earlier in the year) but it was the moment I really knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her.

The cool wind blowing during late autumn while we shared a Big M milk and some candy bars. Stamping our feet to try and keep warm while waiting for the tram. It was a great trip together and we later drove to Phillip Island where the wind was so cold and strong that we were both literally blown away. πŸ˜‰

I’ve been on many other trips with her since then, from Siem Reap to Bangkok but nothing beats that first vacation to Australia.

It’s quite a long story, how we met, and I know that she’s someone that I’ll be with for the rest of my life. I was not wrong. We’ve have our ups and downs and we went through it all like mature adults and I finally realized why all my previous relationships didn’t work.

She kept by my side through thick and thin and supported me during a dark period of my life. I also helped her through the things life throws at you and we’re much closer and stronger now because of it.

I don’t think either of our parents approved much at the beginning but after seeing us together, I like to think that both sides know that we care and love for each other. I love you dear! *hugs*

    • Nice! I love kangaroo meat, it’s a gamey meat that’s hard to get outside Australia. πŸ™‚

      Hmm…it’s not cruel to eat kangaroo, it’s sold in supermarkets and restaurants in Australia – there’s too many kangaroos around and they’re a good source of meat.

      I think it’s just the people who haven’t seen kangaroos that much and think they’re rare and cute creatures that thinks it’s cruel.

      They’re not rare at all and are by no means endangered. A lot of people hate them due to the many accidents they cause and have roo whistles and roo bars on their cars. πŸ™‚

      It’s like eating ostriches.

    • Thanks Rose! πŸ™‚

      I appreciate that, it’s good to be together, I’ve learned a lot and changed a lot for the better while I’m with her.

    • Thanks Eiling!

      Yup, it’s great to be finally happy with life and being with someone I love and who loves me. πŸ˜€

  1. πŸ™‚ It’s really inspiring reading your blog. I’ve been reading it since the early millennium.
    It became my weekly/monthly feeds, then poof your website were gone & then change CMS it grew better & morphed into a butterfly.

    It’s like watching the kid across the street grow up, then there are time when it felt like how my own brother fell out of the family, then it feels weird because the words, the emotions & etc. are something I could really associated to growing up – to be down & out, how it feels to let depression creeps in & chew on the soul with suicidal moments, to run away from the world repeatedly, to be foolish, to grow up, to be happy & some how be enlightened by all that and laugh about it.

    The sense of humor, the raw honestly, creativity, craziness, emotion – man, you’re one of the first & most unique bloggers & human online!

    I’m very happy for you & your dear…
    “Wish the both of you much joy, love, happiness & craziness. To grow up & grow old together! Enjoy the daily adventures of life together”

    • Thanks for reading Vera! πŸ™‚

      It’s good to hear from you. I’m sorry to hear about your brother though and I hope that everything will be okay in the end…I have faith that everything sorts itself out somehow.

      Those were the good ol days, and I can’t say I miss them much coz life, as you mentioned, is a journey and it’s getting better and better. I won’t trade my past for the world though.

      I appreciate all the well wishes – cheers for that!

      Have an awesome life yourself!
