‘Chi trova un amico, trova un tesaro’

Dear Pauline,

(I’m not sure if you’ll be reading this…but heck, I can’t sleep anyway, I might as well write something, so here goes…)

You said, on 7.25pm, 2nd September 2001, which is almost 8 years ago, that ‘chi trova un amico, trova un tesaro’, which means ‘Whoever finds a friend, finds a treasure’ in Italian. I remembered it til this very second, my friend(okay, I cheat, I refered to the autograph you wrote to me back in 2001, I wonder if you still keep mine…been wondering what rubbish I wrote to you last time… LOL).

Let me tell you something, I really did found a treasure. That treasure is you, Pauline. You’ve been a great friend to me, though we’re distance apart. While others are not keeping in touch with me, you’re always there for me, through thick or thins all these years. You listen to all my rants and put up with my Grinchy-ness during Xmas, and my nasty vents during those Chinese New Years,my wails during my bad hair days, and never failed to wish me happy birthday every years since we’ve known each other.

Here’s wishing you a very happy birthday, Pauline. Do know that you’ve always been a sister to me than just a friend.


I really do wish I’m there with you today on your birthday, Pauline. I miss you heaps, we really do have a lot of catching up to do, don’t we? Anyway, hope you have a blast on your birthday, have fun, and live life to the fullest.

Here’s a dedication for you… LOL… Thank God we didn’t sing this song on stage for Teacher’s Day… or else, we would have rolled on the floor laughing at our frog voice today. LMAO.

Your friend always,


ps: *sigh* my mom have the picture of us running in the gunnysack… I can’t really remember running in the gunnysack, do you remember it?
