Some time ago,  my customer who treated me to lunch said "At our age, we don't make new friends. We're lucky if we don't lose old ones."

His words stuck in my head because he's already in his 60s and has seen some good friends die of old age and ill health.

A solid friendship often take years to forge. I've known my best friend for four decades. By now she can read my mind and I can finish sentences for her. We're close like sisters.

At my age, I thought I have no more capacity to develop strong and close relationships with new friends but I was wrong. I've become friends with a group of ladies, all of whom were met through the blog.

Then there is my Korean friend EY who is very dear to me. It's funny how well we can get along considering she picked CH's best friend as her husband.
It's not easy to find such a lovely person with a good heart and I enjoy her company very much. Before she came along, I never thought it was possible to have more than one best friend. Well, the more BFF, the merrier.

Pet - Thanks for your continuous encouragement. Now I try to blog as much as I could. Maybe you should write a book about how to motivate my friends to blog!

You write well... so your posts spread happiness around a little more in a world where everyone is running hard. I encourage you to blog because I couldn't find anyone else who blogs like you so... heh... it's more for my own selfish enjoyment. Kekekekekekeke!
