It all started back in 2005 when I first move in to Johor from Selangor. It was a fine day. I that was the first time I got to use personal broadband and it was on the end of the year school vacation. I started using Myspace, Yahoo Messenger, and everything. Until I came across this profile, name “Yika”. She is a weird person, in a way like nobody ever wears thick mascara weird. She looks like a devil I said to myself. But then I saw she has this thing called MSN. and I was like “What is that?” so I quickly downloaded it turns out it is a messenger. Well okay. I added her then by the email email@example.com while mine is firstname.lastname@example.org. Yet she did not responded quickly.
Long after a while, I added more and more friends on MSN, later I saw a window pop up says “sape ni?”, I replied ” wow, sape kau?”, well we argued until we come to a common ground. We called each other using names like Erl and Yika. We talk throughout day and night. Non stop until it suddenly stop.
Luckily I have her number, so I tried to called her. I was cheap back then it was on credit therefore I need to make every few second counts to call her. Then, her voice. It sounds so much like a high pitch cartoon character. I laughed but I said we continue our conversation in MSN. She agrees. That was the most wonderful moment I ever experienced. My best end of year school holiday.
In 2006, whenever I come back from school, I straight head to my computer. I waited. you guess it. I was waiting for her. I wanted her to talk to me. But she was busy with her other friends. so I said to myself, how do I blend in to the social network of her? I kept scrolling her profile, finding this I need like how to edit photos, editing HTML, taste of music, learning the top 8 friends. Guess what I made her talk to me again, by teaching me HTML of course, but obviously I asked something I already know. by that year we straight feel like having a best friend connection. we put both of our profile at our top friends.
Things started to get cold in 2007. I was in my SPM where I don’t really talk to her. I moved to KL even though I already finished my SPM, I still couldn’t find the time to talk to her. in 2008 we straight cold as well only until at the end of the year where she texted me where should I continue my study?. I replied how about INTI? I think it might suits you.
Things straight being in 2009 where we start to meet each other, if im not mistaken it was the first quarter of the year. I met her in front of SS15 Starbucks. I remember her red Elmo shirt. She is cute. I never thought my Bestfriend is cute. But she is really talkative. But I kind of dig it. let me pause the story. I really like her personality abut two years ahead I need to stay quiet because theres something wrong with the social circle. There are time and time again I visited her just to fill my heart about my talkative best friend. you see, I never really had a friend who enjoys talking like. she talks like really a lot. too much actually. but there’s the beauty of it. it’s has something special in her that I like listen to her mumbling.
I think this is around 2011. I remember the time where we meet when I was graduated from diploma. we eat Ice cream, New Zealand Ice cream. that was my first time. we take pictures on mirror crouching for whatever reason. I told her, I have the physique that every woman desire. she laughs. I asked her why? She replied ” okay…”. she is puzzling yet something I can’t really put my finger on it.
things moving on to 2012 this is where our friendship really starts to bloom she need to talk to me when her legs was injured, she called me first. I ask why Yika? call the ambulance. I was scared actually. But luckily she had great friends in KL to help her. I’m glad for her.
we texted a lot I will show you the screenshot, later we really do talk a lot on my iPhone, and hers. we were crazy about iPhone. until she starts to talk about a guy she liked a long time ago. I mean what? is this the end of me? Am I getting replaced by a guy? and I keep quiet while doing my helicopter training. man that was intense.
A week later I texted her again. things went great again. and suddenly it went silent again. this time its because I went to offshore and later I did my degree in Sarawak. before that I went shopping with her. it was my first time shopping spree and she is there with me. Wei my best friend. you are really the best. She told me don’t do it in Sarawak. well I said no I want to do it. but I regretted it because something is missing.
I came back decided to stop because truthfully I feel something is missing in my life. I need it. when I was about to enter MMU for my degree. Things were heaty. We kind of ended our best friend relationship in a very interesting way at the very interesting date 6.9.12. check it out below. I don’t mind losing a Bestfriend this way. because we actually don’t know what love is. We really depend on our friendship to begin with.
Up until this date, we are still friends, but I said the wrong things and I didn’t make the right move, makes me left behind. I advise you please think before you said to your love one, you might say the harshest things, but your heart still cares.
