Best Boyfriend Forever
How often do I get to whisper into your ear, giving you a tight hug while you’re sound asleep on the 7th the month? It always feels good having you beside me on a special day with your beyond-special company. (:
Today was a simple affair, with just a celebratory dinner in-lieu to our monthsary. A really awesome Japanese Restaurant at a secluded corner of Bukit Timah Shopping Centre. It serves damn awesome maki and just two sets of it left the both of us feeling stuffed! We wanted to order another maki that uses mango as a wrap, but we were too damn full! I was glad to ask Jon not to order 3 makis at a go, if not it’d be quite a waste of money. There’s always a next time! (: Gotta admit that it isn’t cheap though. A plate of maki cost us about $15, but there was a 10% for all ala carte items! (:��The both of us left feeling really satisfied.
Enoki Teppan! Absolutely love mushrooms! This is probably one of the best golden mushroom dish I’ve ever tried! Jon agrees too. Way too delectable! It’s a must try dish! Oh, and since it comes in a hot plate, the fish flakes on the dishes were moving and it mimics the action of worms pretty much. Ewwww, so scary looking. But whatever, it tastes damn good!
Spider Maki! Seasme overload with soft shell crab filling!
Dragon Maki. Unagi & Avocado, with fresh prawn for its filling!

It’s already the 44th month together. Both of us are, still, very madly and deeply in love with each other. So much so that sometimes it just feels like we are still in our honeymoon period. Every now and then, Jon would look at me and then say “I can’t believe I’m dating my primary school friend. Should have just dated you all the way back then.” We’d still share loads of laughter together, turning our beds into a wrestling ring, poke fun and bully each other.
All in the name of Love.
Perhaps we don’t do things like saying “I love you” and “I miss you” to each other every single time, but our relationship is far beyond this. Our imperfections together make this relationship perfect. We fight, we cry, and we strive together, for that one future that we want to work towards to. Jon & I have been planning quite a bit for our future, and the responsibilities – financially to be exact – are slowly giving us the burden and strain. ):
Christmas is one of my favourite festive seasons of the year, and having a fancy dinner seems like one of the best way to celebrate it together with Jon. Now we’ve changed our plans. We’re going to do groceries shopping and whip up a scrumptious�meal at home instead, and we won’t be getting any gifts for each other. All because we want to save for our future. Furthermore, we already have made a booking at Prive for our New Year’s Eve dinner, which I think will cost quite a bit too.
I guess afterall I’d enjoy any special days as long as I’ve Jon beside me. We’d have our own ways of making these days special for each other without spending much. Welcome to the world of adulthood. Welcome to the world of pulling-your-hair-because-of-money. Cheers to our future, Baby! It’s going to be tough, but like I said, as long as I’ve you by my side even the impossible seems a lot easier to handle.
I love you sweetheart. But I’m sorry, because this is definitely an understatement.
