Last week, a whole bunch of my school friends met for a reunion.
I couldn't make it thanks to work, *sighs* but all hail the wonder that is Facebook - the rest of us all over the world who couldn't make it, got to see pictures and be a part of the email planning etc that led to the big meet.
My girls, some married with adorable babies, some single hotties, some recently married - it was so great to see them all again and re-live the memories of school days gone by.
Bunking class with N&N only because we were involved in annual school celebrations, Nitz & I having a laugh over prefect-ly duties, worrying Prez as she sat behind us in class and refusing to let her keep her head on the table for more than 5 seconds!
I remember us laughing over Kir-mal's antics and Lampy! Oh Nitz and I never let you have your lunch did we? Thank your mum for us *grin*
I wish I had been able to make it, but all the same it was absolutely fabulous to see you guys again, even if it was just on photographs.
Thank you God, for Facebook.

- IbnSeena English High School, 2009 -
My first school, IbnSeena English High School. Almost 20 years ago, I made some lifelong friends there, the forever kind.
My now pregnant Crazy Momma Sheetz and Bindi, our little princess whom we watched get married 3 years ago. How Crazy Momma & I cried!
After the 7th grade, I moved to another school and missed IbnSeena dreadfully.
But I made new friends. The forever kind again. Especially Nitz.
Dude and some of his colleagues get together to play cricket on some weekends. The world is so small, we realised that one of his colleagues Faz and I, were actually old school mates from IbnSeena and he was organising these games at the IbnSeena cricket ground.
I tagged along that first time and took dude all around my old school.
He saw the spot where I would sit and study, where I first sat on a swing, my 3rd grade classroom, the steps where the whole school would gather for our morning assembly - I shared some really old memories with him.
As we walked along the assembly steps, I saw some books that had been forgotten there by some child, probably too excited to be heading home for the weekend. This is an image of that moment and each time I look at this picture, the warm old school memories come floating back.
Chili and Einstein just got back from their beautiful honeymoon in Paris. They went all over the city - taking in the sights, the sounds and savoring the croissants, pastries, french shawarmas and the like.
One of the days there, they visited Notre Dame & Chili lit a candle for each person in her inner circle.
Ours was for dude and me to be deliriously happy for the rest of our lives.
Bless : )
I love you Chili girl. Congratulations again.

- Our 1st Anniversary, July 2009 -
For our first anniversary, we wondered and wondered what to do. We both couldn't take time off for a short holiday, so instead, we planned a weekend getaway.
It was lovely to have that weekend together & only dude and I know how much we had to do, just to get that time off.
After a sumptuous dinner, we went for a walk by the beach and then wandered around the hotel. We came to a lovely lobby area that had the most exquisite candle arrangement right in the centre. This image is of that arrangement.
The candles, the warmth, the occasion, dude and me together in that moment - it was all so beautiful.
The www amazes me.
Such a magnitude of information, all accessible from my good ol' laptop.
So this is my space in the galaxy, my bean bag in the corner.
Come sit with me and dip your fingers into my cookie jar of memories - perhaps you'll find we have something in common.
