The hunt !!!

Thursday, September 29, 2011


Are you kidding me? Last post on 15th August...no way! I have been crazy busy and really lazy otherwise. The stress level is now up here and I have to write to get relieved.

It’s that phase when I am not liking anything without friends. I am missing them all from back home and from Birmingham. All the ones around here have different lives and different directions, I feel. I haven't felt that connection yet. This urge to meet Bham buddies or school friends or college friends is driving me crazy.

Sometimes I think why can’t we just take our loved ones wherever we go? This ambitious life when superimposes those small joys like vada pav on a tapri, garam chai in a bad bad ambiance of a college canteen, limitless laughs on stupid jokes, waiting for a bus on a yuk bus stop, back benches and heights of inattentiveness in lectures, potlucks with loads of food, Saturday afternoon brunches and long lasting chit chats till dinner, late night walks to nowhere, midnight drives to somewhere, unending plans, cheap shopping sprees, THE SALE fever, coffee breaks, weekday afternoon time-pass and the list goes on. These simple things fade out in the hussle and bussle and you become an inseparable part of the corporate life. I still think that all this could be brought back if you find Friends and not just people. This can get really difficult, you know! Until now, friends just happened to me I think, I never looked for them! But here in Singapore I feel that I have managed to make a bunch of contacts but am still in search of “Friends”. The hunt of that special “Connection” continues.

Nice one Shalmalee, I guess in a place as small as Singapore, friends won't 'happen'...you have got to find them.. :) I can understand your situation and have felt the same many times....You have make your own little tapri, and rides and Bham world everywhere you go :)...
All that said, feel free to buzz me if u need company for something.. :)

probably no two friendships will ever be the same, but then "har ek friend zaroori hota hai..."

Agnes said...

So true. But I am sure you will make "new" friends... then when you leave Singapore you'll be missing your Singapore-friends...
