This is a continuation of my previous post. Please read the previous posts here, Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 and Part 5.
It looks like airports played a big role in our story. Anyway when I landed in Singapore, it was midnight local time and the place was not very busy. I had a hand carry bag, a laptop bag and my own bag so sleeping was not an option. I just started walking around to searching for an internet connection. I found a kiosk where they had a computer with internet connected. The only bad thing was that there was no chair so I had to stand and use the internet and on top of that it would log out after every 15 minutes, how annoying.
Anyway as I had nothing better to, I checked my email, Facebook and decided to write a reply to AS’s last email.
hope u have better sleep tonite
it is 12am in Singapore and I just got here. Will be here for another 8hrs
need to figure out what to do
anyway hope ur ticket is working out. I can’t wait to see the surprise gift
u r not online. if u see this mail c if u can come online .
I will be checking it from time to time
I was so bored but didn’t know what else to do. So with my trolley and luggage I made a makeshift chair and just surfed the net. There were not many people online for me to chat with. It was an awkward time in Nepal and Australia then.
After 15 minutes I was logged out so I logged in again and SUPRISE SUPRISE, AS was online on gmail.
Me: Hello hello
Me: How are u? Where r u?
AS: I just reached office, saw your mail and came online.
Me: (I was a bit disappointed that he would be too busy to chat with me) Ohoo, its ok then, maybe we chat later during your break.
AS: I can talk for a while so it’s ok. When I have to go I will let you know.
Me: The internet disconnects itself every 15 minutes so if I go offline, wait and I will come online again
AS: Sure no problem. How was your flight?
Me: It was good. Watched a few movies. I am trying to connect the wifi in my laptop it doesn’t seem to be working. Looks like I have to use this computer to chat with you.
AS: Ok. At least we can chat.

AS: are those questions?
AS: wait let me get some water…
AS: talking so much is difficult

AS: before coming here I was still not so sure… but slowly the pictures are starting to materialize in my mind… all of that has one or similar answers… a home … a wife… life go together… I pray that I can make that happen… I imagine… visualize…
Me: I was making a list as you told me about visualizing. My list goes like this

- live happily ever after
- more travel

Me: I try to be positive.. But it’s not as easy… still I think I’ve been ok… I’ve done ok…
AS: u did. Don’t think bad of your past… be they happy or sad..
Me: I have always thought of my past as learning experience if that was not there I won’t b who I am so no regret
AS: yes… Never a failure… always a lesson..
Me: yap def it is I think I am lot +ve than before I am learning hard way but trying my bet I see glass half full
AS: now imagine it as filling up.. With everything u do… and the full glass is the wish, dream that u have…

AS: after meeting you here… I think I started opening up more… now I wonder why I was closed up do much..
Me: that’s nice to hear
AS: : life is funny sometimes.. now I’m building bridges… I had neglected so long…
Me: better late than never
Me: really we been frds for so long and only now we got to know each other better
Me: my school version of u is smiling and frdly guy and I think that is it
AS: but so much has happened… to change us to shape us…
Me: but from LAX airport I got to know so much about u and last few weeks has been blessing. life has taught us a lot
AS: and I think all of that was for the best… to get us where we are now..
There is so much I want to write but the post is getting long . I promise there will be lot to come in next posts. Take care till then.
P.S.: That day we talked for so long that I have 38 pages of chat. When I was reading through the chat, it still brought a smile on my face. Even though we were not in a relation at that time, it was great to know we were so good friends before we decide to be in a relationship.
