It's the New Year, chum.


A quiet start to the new year, in my opinion. And unlike previous times, I spent the time with her just walking around in quiet streets and talking to people who still had their shops open on New Year's Eve. We decided to avoid the throng of humanity that was doubtless clogging the narrow streets of downtown and the city, and we ended up walking along the little roads and lorongs of private residential estates, kinda like we were exploring or something.

It was a very nice thing to do, as we just stopped to speak to a few people (and it happened so naturally!) which was so unlike us. In fact, I think it's so unlike most Singaporeans, but I digress. It was good to be away from all the hubbub and just be with each other under a starry sky, breathing in the cool wind and being out in the wide wide open. So refreshing.

We gazed at each other at the stroke of midnight. I wondered what the new year would bring. But I steeled myself to embrace everything that is to come. What can I be if I am not strong enough to face challenges? And who better to do it with, than my Sayang.

Dear, we will look to the future, holding hands. As Thomas Paine once said, "If we do not hang together, we shall surely hang separately."
