Little did we realize that time passed like it was just yesterday that we said Hello to each other, but alas, that was ten years ago. Penang, the then DAP HQ, 3rd January 2003; the fateful day and place that we first met. Fast forward to today, both of us had moved out of Penang to pursue our dreams.
Ironically, the paths we choose now are just so different from when you were the journalist with Sin Chew Daily and I was then a Political Researcher. Both of us are no longer in our old profession, moving on with different opportunities that came along the way. However, the things that didn’t change are that we are still in touch; to muse about life, to discuss politics, to reminisce about yesteryears and having our dinners together as frequently as we can.
After having our dinner tonight and after our conversation, I suddenly thought of this Song Dynasty Verse that I would like to share with you. I used to have this verse written and pasted on the partition of my workplace, as a reminder note. I hope you like it, my dear friend.
