I saw this article inside The Star (24/12) newspaper on Christmas Eve. They interviewed 2 old friends and one happens to be my good old friend too. Their story made me think about how beautiful a real friendship can be and how important it really is to our lives! We all need good friends who can share our tears & joy besides giving us the pillar supports and words of kind encouragement. They should accept me as I am without any conditions.
"We also say at times, ‘This world is so mean’, then how come there are few people who are ready to take all your sorrows and are always there for you when you need them. I can say this because I have been gifted with such a beautiful gift called “F.R.I.E.N.D.S” in my life....."
Recipe For Leadership - This is about Helen & Abby who were classmates from a Convent School in Ipoh who met up again after one had failed marriage and the other had spent many years living in London & Hong Kong.
Gift Of Friendship - They met up again at the school reunion and clicked like cakes & cream.....exchanging cook books and this led to the chain of "Ms READ" boutiques and "DELICIOUS" restaurants being sprouted all over Kuala Lumpur!
"With so much dire need of friends in our life how can we think of existing without them? Though we have many people around us, but there are only close friends who make all the difference. If they are present nothing else matter. "

When Abby was the corporate figure at Bristol Myers - Malaysia & Hong Kong, she often attended high profile meetings in Chicago. One day she got off the meeting and simply boarded the next plane to visit me at Pittsburgh in Pennsylvania. I was so happy and took her around to tour the city. We ate the best food and stayed at the best 5 Star hotel. Abby paid for everything as I was just a student! Abby felt that the city was really beautiful. The current movie "JACK REACHER" by Tom Cruise was filmed entirely in Pittsburgh too.
