Beauty of life...and friends...

The Indulge crew celebrated Kimi's birthday yesterday.

Kimi's the Advertising/PR guy of the Indulge website...he's one of the most down-to-earth bloke ive came across...a genuinely likeable person who doesnt mind being teased at...the crew...Patricia the Editor...Song the founder of Indulge and 'sometimes' Finance guy...Zhen 'Spindoctor' Han our resident DJ and events guy...Kimi...and the 2 regular contributors...Chloe and i...had assembled at Great World City for an evenin rendezvous...

Strangely enough...Patricia's idea of a dinner was a this quaint little cafe that offered tiny portions of sandwiches which were microwaved ('nuff said)...limp strands of pasta that i could feed a dog with...and save for a couple whisperin sweet nothings to each other...an empty cafe for us to babble away...notice i didnt even mention the cafe's name...

Coffee at Spinelli's after was more enjoyable...i bought the entire crew a round of coffee...and the morons couldnt stop hecklin at John-in-Saatchi issue...all in good fun though...Kimi had to blow a candle out from his tiramisu...we exchanged some life stories...lots of good laughs...and found out a little more bout each other...

Goin home...i reflected on the evenin's event...and couldnt help but smile to myself...the Indulge crew is truly an eclectic bunch of folks...Kimi's still doin National Service in the Navy...but he's wise beyond his years...currently jobless Patricia's been in the media industry for years...she's written for many publications and i look up to her for the way she is now and what she has contributed to the local clubbin industry...quirky Song is a business student who has grand plans to be the next Nick Leeson minus the Barings Bank incident (LOL)...Zhen Han...while not spinnin records in his free time...is studyin to be a doctor...dainty little Chloe took a year off from her Law studies in Nottingham to...eh...hang around in Singapore....and lastly...yours truly...a social misfit with enough 'Get out of Jail' cards to rival seasoned sociopaths...workin in an advertising MNC...

Isnt it a wonder how different people from different walks of life converge together at one point of their lives and just...well...mingle? We're like little chess pieces on a giant chess board...the world is our playground...one wrong move and we wouldnt have met each other...a miscalculated step could end in 'victory' or 'defeat'...

Life is such a wonderful thing...most times it could be a real bitch...the thousands of worries a life has to undertake in his 70+ years of existence...it could all be washed away for an hour or two...when you're with the right company...the laughters and the little stories...we're peeling away tiny layers of ourselves...like an onion...or a bloomin flower...

“Make new friends and keep the old. One is silver and the other gold.”...Maybe you sang this song when you were a kid...What you may not have known back then is that friendship can make your life better...Friends understand who you are and what makes you tick..maybe better than you understand yourself....Having friends can improve your physical and mental health...Talking to friends can help relieve stress...A good friend makes a great fitness partner...and having dinner with a close friend is more fun than eating alone.

I swear by this mantra: "Be a friend to have a friend. Keep in touch by phone, email, or the old-fashioned way, regular mail. Invite a friend over to share a meal or a cup of tea. Go out of your way to help a friend in need. Plan activities together that are purely fun – go bowling, get makeovers, visit the zoo, take a day trip. And share your good times and bad with a friend. Having someone to talk to will make you feel better and look better."

A life is precious...and so are his friends...when your chips are down...no matter how forlorn your life takes you...do not fret...take another step forward...you'll never know where it'll take you...for chances are...you'll make a life-enhancin decision...
