Today I would like to write about 2 of my best friends: Buttercup & Bubbles, and the true meaning of friendship.
How would you define Friendship? Many would say: Being around for each other, through thick & thin. Always ready with a shoulder to cry on. Laughing uncontrollably about nothing. Sharing secrets & fears. Confiding about the future & the unknown. Relying on each other. Being together... For me, it's all these & so much more.
In the past almost 6 years since we set up our group office, I've had the privilege of being with these 2 very special people, who also happen to be my sisters, and I have learnt so much more about the true meaning of friendship.
Despite being so different from one another, we have grown to be so comfortable together. We are independent & we each have our own separate businesses, & yet we are inter-dependent. I know I can always rely on them for anything at all & vice versa. We seek each other when we are in doubt. Their opinion on things, both important & trivial, mean a lot to me. I know something is wrong with any of them even before they voice it. When they feel hurt, I feel the pain too. We are so defensive of one another: speak no evil of my PPGs :-D Anyway, they understand me better than most people (& I'm a complex person, really).
We find time for each other & would go out at least once a week (usually on Fridays) for lunch & girlie stuffs: we call it the PPG outings. We would wrap up the events of the week, discuss about family & work matters, seek opinions, indulge in Baskin Robbins & do other girlie stuffs (which normally involves getting fat). Somehow, the week seems incomplete without the PPG outing (which sometimes happen since we've been so busy lately!). I really look forward to our PPG time together. Seriously.
I love my 2 best friends! (Actually I have 4 other sisters & a brother, & I love them to bits too - but more about them in my future postings!).
To my PPG buddies: thank you for being there for me!
Love lots, Blossom xxx
