One Year

On the 10th of October, Princess and I celebrated our first year being together.

We did the usual couple things :) The night before we just stayed at my place and watched a DVD.
Unveiled the presents we gave one another.

I hid this present of hers in my cupboard and got her to look for it.

The week before she bought me a bowtie and cummerbund that I'm going to be wearing for my Nuffnang Awards tux.

The highlight though was this really nice card she wrote for me. Can't show the content because it's .... private :)
But I'll show you a little drawing of us she made.

All on the eve of the 10th of October. Princess blogged about what we did on the day itself so if you want to read it, check it out here.

To be honest, we don't know for sure if that was the exact date because our relationship didn't exactly start with a "Will you be my girlfriend?"

"Aww... I'd love to be your girlfriend".

It kinda started off with a kiss and we can't even remember now when exactly that first kissed happened.

The story is we really started off as really good friends. We started off getting to know one another by talking quite a bit on MSN and eventually we started to go out here and there. I was really happy where we were. For the first time in my life, I had a "best friend" who was a girl and that was really fun to have.

It all changed one day though. I was telling one of my good friends about this "best friend" I had who I could just really click with. He said something rather unexpected to me.

"You know, I think it's great and all that you have this girl as a best friend. I used to be really close to a girl like that too. We kept it platonic all the way but you know what? Even up till today, I can't help but wonder how it would've been like if we were a couple and if we would've been a great couple".

Those words of wisdom from this friend of mine (he knows who he is but I shan't say it out), is what changed my mind about what I wanted with Princess.

Many nights later I found Princess and myself alone in the car on the way to supper. We had just finished clubbing with some friends at MOS. We had a moment alone so I talked to her. I told her what my friend told me and how I didn't want to live life wondering what this could've been.

I told her that I thought we could be really good together but at the same time I'm in no hurry at all. I didn't want her to be my girlfriend that night or in the next few nights even. All I wanted to tell her was that I don't want to be just friends anymore. I promised not to make a move on her until she was ready.

Weeks later while sitting in my room chatting after I had cooked her dinner, she leaned forward and kissed me.

That was how it all started... (I think... I mean if a girl kisses you means on already right?)

Since then we've both done so much together.

We went to Macau.

Hong Kong.

Disneyland

and Phuket where we met these two friendly Indian tourists.

She's followed me over to the Philippines too for a business trip.

Then over to Melbourne to visit the Nuffnang office there where we also caught up with some friends.


We've done our fair share of stupid things together.


We've at least once or more taken bad pictures of one another.

Me taking this picture of her in Macau when she was trying to remove a strand of hair on her tongue.
Or us here doing some... ogre thingy.

We've both had multiple MSN nicks since getting together our nicks have always been something related to one another.

It started with her MSN nick being "Koala" and mine being "Tree".


and now she's "Pebbles", I'm "Bam Bam"

I think Ming at one point found it annoying.

We've attended two weddings of our friends.

Andrew and Jayen's.


and Pierre and Lay See's.

The couple whom we always referred to as the "perfect couple".

To think that all this and more happened in a time capsule of a year. It's so exciting to know that there's so much more to look forward to. More moments of happiness, more moments of sadness, more moments of adventure but most importantly, having all those ups and downs of life with someone you're happy to walk it with.

*My favourite picture of all time.

I did bump into you two at Midvalley once. But being an extreme introvert like me, I am too shy to say "Hi". But, I do want to say, you two look lovely togather.

~ Happy Anniversary~
