We've been afraid to find
It's easier to be broken
It's easier to hide
Looking at you, holding my breath
For once in my life I'm scared to death
I'm taking a chance letting you inside
I'm feeling alive all over again
As deep as the scars that's under my skin
Like being in love, she says, for the first time
Maybe I'm wrong but I'm feeling right
Where I belong with you tonight
Like being in love to feel for the first time..."

If you have no idea yet, i would like to inform you that i'm currently in a relationship with a sweet girl, and today is our 2nd month anniversary.
Yes, that beautiful gal is named Melissa D. And i really thank God that He brought us together. I just feel so darn happy and blessed to have someone as lovely as she is.
Melissa D and me.
Well, how did it all began? This unique story happened when this blogger (yours truly) was given a chance to the island here for work purposes. Thinking that he had nothing to loss, he decided to get himself exiled here, to his delight, was a good thing.
The first time i saw Melissa D was at Komtar, during one of my early assignments here. Then, she was just another friend in the industry which i got to know. But as we met more frequent at assignments, we got to know each other better.
We started spending time going out for lunches, sending many, many SMSes and even go out for movies. We became close friends. It was then i started for fall head over heels for her, as i don't have a girl who is not only close to me, but real nice as well.
We've shared to one another about things that happened in our past, our dreams and things we enjoyed doing. I really enjoyed spending time with this hot girl!
What we call Pinkie Hold
In mid-July, she came to pick me up to watch a movie. She was in her car, crying, over something that happened at her work. I told her to stop by the road, and allowed her to continue crying. As i sat beside her, i asked her to give me her hand, and she did... and i started praying for her.
We then headed down to Gurney Plaza for dinner before the movie began. It was then, she asked me why i asked her for her hand. I honestly told her that i wanted to pray for her, and i liked her. Truth be told, she did not freaked out and was okay with it. We became closer.
Towards the end of July, i returned to KL over the weekend. She then tells me that she missed me and vice versa... i couldn't wait to return back here. On Monday, we met up for lunch, and we talked about how we missed each other a lot. After lunch, while i sent her back to her office, i asked her if it was okay to hold hands, and we did; it was one of the best moments and experience i ever had, and she was loving it too.
That night, i went over to her house, as i wanted to talk to her, and Melissa wanted to tell me something; that she is in love. Hence, our friendship then went to the next level - courtship.
The two of us, just feeling so darn happy.
It was interesting that i didn't ask her to be my girlfriend, and vice versa; something which i hope to do, and it was achieved! Interesting.
Anyway, this is the first time the both of us been in a relationship. It was weird to be called a boyfriend, and calling Melissa D my girlfriend at first. Things felt so surreal. But i thank God that He has brought us together, and we pray that we'll love each other everyday as we love God... and that this relationship will eventually lead to marriage, and beyond!

I guess the saying "love comes unexpectedly' is really tangible to the both of us. And i'm really happy now... and i praise God for His goodness... appreciating ever moment i spend with my girl.

Well, she and Aunty Moy are currently in America... and i'm just counting the days until she comes back to the island.
Melissa D, I love you so much, Sunshine! Happy second month anniversary!
"...walking on the hills at night
with those fireworks and candlelight
you and I were made to get love right
cause this is real, and this is good
it warms the inside just like it should
but most of all
most of all, it's built to last
cause you are the sun in my universe
consider the best when we felt the worst..."
