I find it interesting how our songs tend to come about in relationships —— you don’t actively choose a track to represent your relationship as it usually just happens, depending on the experiences you go through together as a couple. As for the beau and I, there are of course, certain tracks that we gravitate to much more than others, such as those concerning strawberry bubblegum and blueberry lollipops, but essentially, we’ve three significant tracks in our arsenal of sorts —— namely Chris Brown’s Forever (a story which those who have known us for a long time would know), Benny Benassi’s Cinema (entailing another story, set in the UK this time around), and this,

A story established between the seas of Asia. I still get (good) chills every single time I listen to this.

Come to think of it, these three heartfelt tracks can be said to signify the three distinct stages of our long-distance relationship in a way, ever since the initial build-up. From the early encounters of curiosity and very limited time spent with each other (the highlight being that one night onstage —— it’s gon’ be me, you, and the dance floor; ’cause we only got one night), to heavy intrigue and discovery, pulling each other into our own respective worlds (I never know what’s coming, forever fascinated), to finding out just how similar we are, and growing as a couple (I’m looking right at the other half of me; that we’re making two reflections into one). It’s amazing to see just how far we’ve come, and how far we still can go.

Three weeks ago, I wrote,

From Aberdeen x Guildford, to a month together in London, to Lincoln/Nottingham x Malaysia, to Beijing x Malaysia, and now, finally, Penang x KL. We’ve done the seven-hour train ride, the eight-hour time difference, the six thousand-mile distance, and the thirteen-hour flight. We’ve explored small cities, to thriving capitals, and we’ve experienced biting winters, to sweltering summers. Long-distance has been present since the very beginning, but it has never once stopped us. I love you, and I look forward to the day when we’re in the same city. Missing you already.

We’re that much closer now.

I can tell you there’s no place we couldn’t go. And I, my darling, will make your world beautiful.

To a dazzling world of infinite possibilities. Happy twentieth (month).

    It’s truly very difficult in this active life to listen news on TV,
    thus I just use world wide web for that reason, and obtain the latest news.
