We need a friend, and you’ve got a friend.
This is a group of friends I get to know during my language enhancement course the year before. We got a chance to get around this Chinese New Year. Snap some photos after our meals. The treat is awesome but the gathering is even better than anything on the table.
We need friends all the time, we all know. Especially, the unsurmountable bond that we has shared, it can’t even be measured through times. Friends are not only beneficial to our well being, exchanging of ideas and care are just as important. So, I always make an effort to call or message my friends to see how they are doing and it’s purely out of my hearty concern.
I’m glad I got to know these few classmates through this path of my life. What has brought us together is just like what has brought us on this earth. Be it for a reason or not, it’s not important to know. The crucial point is we have been through the fun and have come a long way through the course structure. It’s just like a curvy stream, it’s cooling and smiley as a whole.
That goes the same as the law of nature. We need water and care for the green. Do not discard the withered, when the leaves turn yellow. Not capturing the best side of all, but the ups and downs in fact. That makes life more vibrant.

This is a beautiful post. I love that you “always make an effort to call or message my friends to see how they are doing and it’s purely out of my hearty concern.” I also smiled at the line, “It’s just like a curvy stream, it’s cooling and smiley as a whole.” Friendships are like a cool, curvy, smiley stream. Lots of love and hugs to you my friend. Just checking to see how you are doing! 🙂

I’m fine! You know why? Chatting with my Marsha under a cool and peaceful sat morning.
What else do you ask for?
I hope you are great too! If not, is okay too!
I don’t believe we always up up all the way like superman.
Life is about ups and downs, right? My Marsha.
April 6, 2013 at 1:32 pm
You are right, My Sydney. I sure like the ups better than the downs, but life is full of both. I love the downs when I’m climbing hills or mountains! and I love chatting with My Sydney. 🙂
April 6, 2013 at 2:22 pm
Me too! I like to chat with my dearest Marsha!
Don’t forget the coconut tree! 🙂
April 7, 2013 at 10:52 pm
I’ll never forget the coconut tree. I’m constantly looking up while I’m waiting to make sure that the coconut doesn’t fall on me! 🙂
