just sent gen off last night... though its only for 8 months, though internet/tech is advance, though there's skype, though we may not even meet up for more than 10 times during the 8 months if she were still here in s'pore, though we both know she'll be back, though logically and rationally i know and understand a lot of other stuff, somehow just can't hold back the tears. wonder why. must be that stupid large "departure" sign and the glass panels at the gates of t3. must be the hug that never fail to start wetting dunno how many ppl's eyes. must be the "pls take care of yourself when i'm unable to see you or be there straight away within a call or sms". must be i'm too used to being just a few blocks away from her for the past 12 yrs. must be the 12 years of friendship. must be the fact that she is my best friend. must be because she won't be here when i turn 21. must be because we both just cry very easily. must be my weakness for not being able to take departure in my stride. not surprising. it has always been so. dear lord pls pls watch over this best friend of mine and keep her safe. amen. miss her so much when its only been a nite. just wet my cheeks one more time. wonder why.
