Liping the Superwoman

Dear Liping,

It has been 8 years since we first had that porridge supper together during our NTU band days. Since then, we have seen each other through many ups and downs, triumphs and failures.

As your new Sojourn begin hours from now, I recollect all the wonderful memories that we shared. The study benches, WMC trip, dinner parties, endless career rants… seriously, what else can a guy ask for?

Plus all those lovely, lovely postcards you always write for me when you go for your trips… and only give to me when you came back!! I still keep all of them, you know…

I know you have made the right decision to make this move, and I hope that you’ll find happiness and contentment in your new life in London. The British are lucky to have you!

You will be sorely missed, of course, but I know it is for a good reason.

Remember what I told you about how friends come and go, as we all grow up and change? I know that, even when we are continents apart, you’ll be forever in my heart as one of the greatest friends that I ever had the fortune to meet.

For that, Liping, I thank you. Till pur paths cross again.


The day when you went as my partner for my Convo Ball in 2003, remember?
I was so proud donning a pink shirt and new suit, and you went to your
aunt’s to do your hair. How come we didn’t take photos together?!? And how
glamorous is this… group photo in front of the rubbish dump

You and Terence. See, I knew it that you guys know each other before
that night we went out clubbing at Double O. Ha!

You and Yirong. Do you still remember her? Ahh… the divas of the night =)

I remember this was the first week I got my new Olympus digicam.
You suggested that we go shopping. So we did!

We shopped, and shopped… or rather, you shopped…

… and you shopped, and shopped…

and shopped (!!!!), and shopped (zzzz~~)
Till I can’t take it anymore and dragged you to Kenny Rogers…


… where you let me took this cheesy photo of you! Wahahaha~~

Fast forward to the end of 2005. That day I took one of my exams in that
dreaded course with MDIS. We celebrated the end of studying (until next sem,
that is) and you made me this jug of… something alcoholic orangey. Hehe…

And then it was your 2Xth birthday in December!!!

We can’t seem to run away from Iguana, can we?
It is like our default birthday/dinner place when we dunno
where else to go to!

The guys were there too, remember? It seems like such a long time ago
When you and I are a few years younger :P
And then, for some reason we didn’t take any more photos until…

Your next birthday!!! :D Haha, another year older
And see, we are back at Iguana again!!

And then, finally – finally – we took a photo together
(I like my hairstyle then)

And for some reasons you turned red!!!

Few days later, we gathered at my place for a bit Christmas cheer.
That was last year… although it does feel like longer than that
We exchanged many gifts, remember?
(And I look nice in tan. Hmmm)

Good thing is everyone got something for everyone…
… except for Jinguang, whom got the same thing for everyone. Haha!!!

All together now. Sob sob… the memories~~

Thank you so much for the memory, Liping
