Old friends

met up with my old buddies from school last week and we were reminiscing about the good old days. There are 3 of us left in the group now. There used to be 7. One (TP)just lost touch with us after our O levels as she was the only one that did not continue to JC. Then, another (T) got married and went to the US. The third (BL)worked in Singapore for awhile, then got married and is now living in the Isle of Man. Last year, Jn, migrated to Australia. Next Year, her twin sister Js will be moving to Australia too. That leaves just R and me. Our group is getting smaller and smaller. R mentioned that her husband may be posted to Shanghai. He had been offered the post a few times but had turned it down, but may not be able to do so forever,and then...boo!hoo!hoo!, I will be all alone here in Singapore. But girls, dont worry, we are friends for life. Girl friends are VERY IMPORTANT people. They are there to support you as well as share all your joy and sorrow. A GREAT bunch of girls. Cant wait to meet up and chitchat or gossip together. Value your girlfriends!

My girlfriends and I are all scattered too, but we still keep in contact via e-mails. Takes a lil bit more effort but can be done.

Girlfriends are great! I'm glad I have girlfriends not only in Singapore but all over, so wherever I go, I have at least someone to look for and chat. Girl Power! :)
