A couple of weeks back, I received a surprise in my letter box. It was a birthday card all the way from San Francisco, USA. My friend of over 3 decades posted it to me. I can’t even remember when I last received a card by snail mail from a close friend. So this birthday card came as a big surprise to me.
Jo and I got to know each other when we were twelve. She was transferred from another school. We were besties the following year, when we were in Form 1 and remained good friends until we left school after Form 5. We did many crazy things together, along with our other crazy classmates and laughed like crazy everyday. We went on school trips together and cycled round our neighborhood together every evening. We even went to school together everyday since we lived near each other.
One of my best memories with Jo was our many camping trips to Pangkor Island and Pulau Kapas in Terengganu when we were 13 and 16. We also attended a 10-day Wilderness Adventure Camp in Lumut (similar to Outward Bound School) together when we were 16 years old.
Our friendship took a breather when we went our separate ways after we left high school. She is now residing in the US with her hubby and baby girl. Late last year, we met again in Ipoh and our friendship rekindled 🙂
