hugs & kisses post from Viv

What a beautiful and true to the heart posting from Vivian! I so agree with you on the best friends in high school bit! Friends either get it right from the start or not. The ones that get it right... get OCD (obsessive compulsive) and crazy, wedding plans making together!! :P Even if you were not requesting Hershey kisses for favors in the Penang wedding.... you deserve a billion of them hugs and kisses from me!

Read Viv's post below....

Hugs & kisses from a dear friend

Check this out! My Christmas-themed favours-cum-decor, all the way fr the States! I cannot wait to get my hands on them next week and start packing. I love doing these things, it reminds me of the good ol' high school days when we DIY-ed everything and sold them to raise money. I'm going to have my girls with me this time around, too (the 'Georgian guides/rangers').

Actually, it's really true what they say, you find your best friends in high school. You may lose touch with some, drift apart from others, but you will get closer to those you were already close with and form a stronger bond with those who weren't that super-close in the first place. But in any case, you know you can rely on your high school girlfriends in a way that you can't with anyone else. These girls are kindred spirits and friends for life, friends you know will be there for the rest of your life :)

I'm all sentimental not just because of a couple of bags of chocolates from Sherene (though I'm super thankful!), but it's just that weddings make you see a lot of things, some of which aren't even things you want to see. There will be heartache, disappointment, hurt and even anger, but at the end of the day, there's no better time or place for you to re-evaluate your friendships a little and really see whom your true friends are- those who'd do everything and anything to help in any way they can, wherever they may be.

Weddings also make you appreciate your family more for all things they do (even though you know they don't really have a choice :P). It's the little little things, like how your fashion-ignorant dad gets multiple shirts in assorted colours to get THAT perfect combo and your mum who's not normally very fashion-conscious obsessing about getting the perfect pair of shoes to match her dress etc. It's just really heart-warming and brings a smile to your face just thinking about it... :)
