50+ Years of Friendship. Don't we all want that?

Hi!!! I'm just back from my holiday in New Zealand. Overall it was a great holiday, not as relaxing as I wanted it to be, but I'm pretty sure my mandarin listening has improved lol which reminds me that I have to reply to my cousin's email in Mandarin ughhhh.. it will take me at least an hour to write -.-

Anyway, there is this quote I heard in Criminal Minds.
Reid: There's an old Buddhist saying that, when you meet your soulmate, remember that the act to bring you together was 500 years in the making. So always appreciate and be kind to each other.
Lewis: That's lovely.
Reid: There's a corollary for friends. When you meet a true friend, you will be bound together though space and time for 500 years.

During this trip, we met 5 older women traveling together. They have been friends since they were in kindergarten. They are still very good friends until now that they each have grandchild! They are also still as crazy as they were younger lol They all live on the same road and they travel every year just the 5 of them, leaving the husbands at home. They said, they can't act crazy if their husbands are around XD Now 1 of them is living in Melbourne to help taking care of her newborn grandchild, so this year, the other 4 flew from Shanghai to Melbourne to meet her and then go on tours to New Zealand, Sydney, Gold Coast, Canberra and Brisbane. I believe they are still on tours now.

I think they are very blessed to be friends like that. That's a 50+ years of friendship! We'd be lucky enough if we have 10+ friendship that's still going strong. I do have a couple of great friends from 10 years ago, and I do hope we can still be close in 10 years time, but I know it's not everyone's blessing to have it. I think in Chinese they say, 这是她们的福气. I hope they stay friends until the end :)

So, make sure to treasure our friends and not take them for granted. One day we might not be close anymore, or one day they might get tired of asking you out and getting rejected and finally give up. So when it's still on, why don't we keep going on?

For my bestie, we're both besties and "hubbies" lol so, meaning our meeting has been in the making for 500 years, plus now that we are bestfriends now, we'll still be stuck together for another 500 years. So that's 1000 years of friendship!! We've done well lol XD and yep, you heard it right, still another 500 years stuck with me my friend :P
