Built to Last.

“To me, true love is the sweetest thing in life. That’s why we’re all either in love or looking for love. Sometimes you have to work for it – especially when life gets in the way – but I believe true, deep love is always worth fighting for.”

“You don’t love someone because they’re perfect. You love them inspite of the fact that they are not.”

Even till now, I can’t believe I am in love with my primary school mate. The guy I used to find really annoying, the guy whom I couldn’t have a conversation of any longer than 5 sentences. I remembered that annoying chubby little boy. But a chubby boy with that charming smile. It’s almost 11 years since I knew you. (And wow, I’m impressed!)

Everything’s so different now.

Your voice is my therapy to this crazy life, you bring me away from reality of madness into a world of our own where nothing mattered. You picked me up from the lowest point in my life, and taught me what true love was. I thought it only existed in fairy tales, but it is indeed so forgiving and unconditional.

I remembered how I told you I’ve changed, and am probably not the same girl you used to love, but you told me you’ll still love me all the same no matter how much I’ve changed. You were so tolerant with me, so willing to stand by me firmly and worked out our differences put together, and you loved me all the same despite all that we’ve been through together. (Long-distance relationship is no joke, really.) The way you called me your wife in chinese/cantonese, either because you missed me terribly or when you’re trying to gain my pity after committing a mistake. The way you told me I’m a part of your family, and my family is also yours. The way I have a corner for your clothes in my wardrobe, and I own a corner in yours too. The way both of us work so hard in our studies/work, with the hope to start our family by the age of 26. The ways you always try to make me happy. The investments we have made for our future (our wedding).

The past four years have been exciting, and it’s mostly because of you. We’ve travelled to quite a few different places together, and have developed in the interest of travelling and eating together. We talked, laughed, fought, cried, and disagreed in our almost-everyday-long-distance phone calls, our love never died.

As an individual, we can survive just fine without the physical presence of each other. But there’s a burning, blasting flame in our love that keeps me going, and the same for you. You’ve no idea how wide my grin can be when you tell me about how you tell your friends the confidence you have in our relationship. It’s the same thing for me too. I guess that literally justifies the quote that says “You don’t marry the one you can’t live without, but the one that you can live without by choosing not to.”

Four years, and I still find myself falling in love with you every single time. I love the way you love me, I love the way we are. You turned me into a hopeless romantic. But if that’s what makes me happy, I’ll be the a fool for you.

Can never be more thankful to have you in my life, really. An angel. A God-sent. Thank you for putting up with me all these years.

This entire entry can’t even express how half of how I feel. Sometimes I just wish that my heart was a thumb drive, then I can hand it over to you so you can read through every single thing.

Your promise back in 2006, on Friendster.

‘Cause this is real, and this is good.
It warms the inside just like it should,
but most of all it’s built to last.

Happy 4th year Baby love.
