Who’s bound for the United States to be a happy bride.
Karen and I got to know each other in 2006, when she got transferred to my ex-ex-workplace. From then, I felt that we clicked somehow.
It was always fun with her around, and she livened up the otherwise drab place. I got to appreciate her friendship more when I was expecting Matthew. She took extra care of me, always reminding me to eat well. She was part of a supportive group of colleagues-friends who always make sure I have company to foods I craved then.

The saddest and most regretable thing to happen was when I made the decision to leave. I left behind a group of like-minded people who enjoyed good food and company.
Karen is leaving for the States on 10 September, and I miss her already. Of course, she’s off to be a pretty bride and I wish her all the best, and may she be enveloped in marital bliss forever.
Bye Karen! Do keep in contact!
