Specially Dedicated to my Bestie
15/6/1999, 10 years ago...
We met. Location...Matriculation Centre, International Islamic University Malaysia. We shook hands and became friends on that very first day, without even realised that we were also dorm mates. Time passed by...taaruf week was over, and we were placed in the same arabic class for that semester. Our different attitude made our friendship started and grew. U were so silent, mysterious looking girl, but I was so talkative, like nothing in this world are secrets to me. But we turned the differences to become positively colourful for us. We complement each other's differences and learnt a lot from each other. We hung out together (remember 1Utama and Barn Thai...our fav hangout spot?), had fun, shared our secrets, our ups and downs, even shared the tears together. We met and knew each other's family members and regard them as our own...how sweet! And before the matric ended, we became BESTFRIENDS.
Main Campus, Gombak... U were the architect and I was the landscape architect. So guess what bestfriends from two different courses can do? We LEARNT! Until finally U can memorize as much plant scientific names as I did. And how about me working in an architecture firm right after graduated as a Landscape Architecture bachelor? Weird, wasn't it? But if it's not because of U, I don't think that any architect's firm would consider hiring me working with them.
Remember how we went to holidays, bagpacked, and had fun together? And do U remember accompanied me to PD and Ayer Keroh PLKN camp just to help me to complete my Topical Study, without having any idea of what will we face and we just did it instinctively? Plus so many other things that sometimes were stupidly done but we learnt from the mistakes? Until finally we both graduated , got a job, and living in the real life with so much more things to learn.
So we started our life outside the campus...facing the real world together. Facing the truth of the real world together...remember what we found? Bad people...cheaters...snatch thieves...house breaker...(and i lost my laptop, phone...etc...sedey..) And the best part is, whatever happened, we faced it together. We NEVER leave each other to face any trouble alone. We just can't. But we still RESPECT each other's individuality...privacy...space...life! We just fit each other...perfectly!
15/6/2009...present... 10 years later...U are already happily married. And I am still walking calmly...but deep inside is hoping that someone whom I'll call soulmate will appear and erase my 'single' title. Yes, we have our own life to live on anyway. I am not that talkative anymore...but U talk more than me now. We have career that fits our interests, have a life as we always desired, and own some little precious thing that can make us proud...we are far different than what we were 10 years ago. But one good thing about us still remains unchanged....we are still BESTFRIENDS.. dunia akhirat. InsyaAllah.
Dear Fatin, Happy 10th Friendship Anniversary.
My wish is that our friendship will remains unchanged.
My wish is that our friendship can contribute something to anything...anything! Amin...
