You know how when a certain song came on the radio or playlist and it reminded you of a certain someone or situation? Club Can’t Handle Me by Flo Rida feat. David Guetta was playing on the iTouch and nostalgia came rushing through me. 2010 was a crazy year. I fell out of a relationship, met new guys, entered a complicated ‘relationship’ and got myself into some stupid drama. I started frequenting Zouk; partied almost every Ladies’ Night, Friday and Saturday. Got wasted, made new friends and went crazy with my girlfriends. It was good fun. Nothing like dancing along good music and forgetting about the world. It made me happy, at least for the night.
Things started to come around when I met Shawn one night. My first impression of him wasn’t all that fantastic. I thought he was a girl (LOL) and he had ugly hair. Hung out with his friends after one Zouk night, ate pratas at the Indian coffee shop and chilled till 6.30AM before we took a cab home. You will be surprised with what caught Shawn’s attention and that is we shared the same birthday. Same date, same month and same year. We talked a lot and clicked. He was there whenever I needed him. He was my best comfort and support when things were bad. I wasn’t in love with him and all then because I was still caught up in the complicated ‘relationship’. Broke his heart a thousand times and was stupid enough to take this long to realise he’s the one for me.
So one day, I finally woke up my idea and told myself that things have to stop. I was blinded and feeling messed up for way too long. I put things into a stop and started living life. Went on dates with Shawn; we laughed, we were embarrassed, we made fun of each other and we were happy. I remember the first time he held my hands and kissed me on my cheek. He missed it and ended up kissing my ear (hahaha) and thinking about it still makes my heart flutter. Shawn and I came a long way and that was how we happened.
Like they said, bad things fall apart so good things can fall together and I’m glad mine fall perfectly well together. To my baby, thank you for entering into my life. You are the best I ever had and will always be the best.
I love you.
