Perfect Date

“You and I, the two of us, in the park. We have all day to talk about everything — just us.”

Side Story :

Today, three years ago, my wife and I got married.

Prior to that, we were dating for about 3.5 years.

So, to sum it up, we’ve been together for 6.5 years — where we spent more than 4.5 years living apart; cross-cities in Indonesia (between Bandung, Jakarta, Balikpapan) and even cross-countries (between Indonesia, Japan and Singapore).

Of all the odds, I can tell you that we talked almost everyday, ever since we started dating.

We use phone, SMS, e-mail, Skype, Y!M, etc… every means that we can use.

We talked about nothing, anything and everything — and still, we never ran out of topic to talk about.

I wish for a lot more years for us to talk.

Happy anniversary, dear.

PS: Today is also my father’s sweet 70th birthday and Indonesian Independence Day. Plenty of reasons to celebrate the blessings of this day, no? :D
