To love and be loved....

To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.
David Viscott, How to Live with Another Person, 1974

I'm really in the best position now to understand what this really means.  Before I guess I was just too busy being part of the rat race.  Although I knew what it meant to love and be loved, I didn't actually feel it.

Now I have all the time in the world to enjoy it better.  When earning a living gets in the way, it isn't easy to remember that the seconds, minutes and hours are ticking away.  We let moments slip by.

Over the last few months, Stephen and I have walked around Singapore.  For him, it is revisiting but for me, it's sightseeing.  Everything is still new to me.

This was just two nights ago on 22 November 2012 when we went to the area near the Singapore Flyer and walked from there to Marina Bay Sands.  The lights were so beautiful.  The night was lovely.

Yesterday we had an exciting outing by cycling along the beach in Pasir Ris.  We rented bicycles and, if not for the impending rain, we might have stayed till sunset.


  1. Lovely smiles... I happy for the both of you. May you guys continue to have more wonderful moments together...

    1. Thanks so much. We are making up for lost time! :)

  2. I echo Fadhil's wishes for the both of you. You may be making up for lost time, but it is still wonderful.


    1. Yes, it is. :)

      I made a good decision to join Stephen while we can still walk about and enjoy our time together.
