Strangers to neighbours*


July 28, 2006 8:30 AM

Mili wrote a touching piece about our friendship and how we still haven’t met up! *sob* Mili, the feeling is definitely mutual.

We have very strange msn/gtalk conversations about travels, friends, relationships, family, other bloggers, raves… and even one crazy virtual drinking session. I did not start out blogging to make virtual friends, but moo had been a constant support in so many ways.

Yes, she calls me “moo” and she’s allowed. Her amazement at having formed a lasting friendship with me (I’d like to think so!) through blogging was also expressed by Blinkymummy previously too, if you’ll excuse my egotism. 😉

We were but strangers bouncing through the Internet with our words and photos, and then managed to click and become friends for real. Awesomely cool beyond description. I feel very blessed.

* a phrase used by BM in one of our conversations. Not quite neighbours yet but very very apt.

    Amazing … you got to admit … how a mutual friendship could also be digitised 🙂

    More so … it couldnt get any less platonic as how i would like to descrive it, than any real relationship.

    it hence teach me about one thing about the beauty of a non-physical contact relationship existed among the transition of pixels and binaries.

    It is the things in common that make relationships enjoyable, bit it is the little differences that make them interesting.

    And it’s time i wish to take u as my friend as well instead of blogger reader …

    write me to my email man! LOL!

    splashmilk: new forms of relationshis/friendships via new forms of technology. 🙂

    My gmail is shown on the front page, and my MSN is similar. So just add me and if we are lucky we’d bump into each other online.

    Ronnie: yeah, it’s all very metaphysical.

    I do find it bizzare. Most people trawl the internet looking for the lurve connection,not friendship; but I think the best friendships are those who are accidental, you go in with no preconception and no expectation that you should be friends and be nice to each other – its just nice how it just ‘happens’..

    But you’ve gotta admit..the times you want to hit my head with a cast iron wok..pixellated relationships are harder because self expression is not visual..I can be laughing my head off on one end whilst you absentmindedly strangled your mousepad in frustration.

    PS: Why is one of the related posts ‘In a Strip Club’?I look like stripper isit?HahahHA!

    sourrain: agree on the bit about not having to be nice because there’s no ulterior motive.

    hahah I think the times that you were laughing I was also laughing too. I don’t think I was ever frustrated by you. 🙂

    And I don’t know about the related posts thing, it’s kinda unreliable sometimes.

    Leonard: well it creates new avenues for connecting with ppl anyway.
