The happy change

 
A gathering with my dear school mates


Do you still keep in touch with your ex school mates? How often do you guys meet up?

Most of my ex school mates have moved to KL since finish SPM which is about 12 years ago (OMG I sound so old haha!) Nonetheless we do keep in touch regularly even until today, I mean through Whatsapp and Facebook :p 
As for meeting up, it's quite difficult since everyone is busy with own life, we only get to get together during special occasion like during someone's wedding or during Chinese New Year. So I treasure our friendship very much ;)

We got to meet up yesterday since most of them are back in Taiping for the weekend. Decided to bring Aden along though I knew he sure made noise one.
Anyway we chit chat and laugh a lot during that 2 hours and one thing we realize is since all of us are mummies now, the topics we had are no longer how to make up/dress up/which cosmetics is good/which hairstyles suit me and etc but it's all about babies and kids. We even talked about our look and appearance whenever we meet up, unlike the other gang of our school mates (you know when we are still schooling there are several groups of friends even though we studied in the same class), whenever they post photos and share in Facebook, all of them still look very pretty with make up on and dress up well, best of all, body still look good one xD

We on the other hand, no make up, and probably just wear cincai only in order to cover our fat body, haha!

But at the end of the day, we all agree that this change is a happy change, it's another type of happiness we should be thankful about ;)
We might sacrifice a lot in becoming a mother, but all are worth it knowing that we do all these for our babies and kids ^^

  1. Only 12 years lah. I am even older! Lol.

    Hardly meet up with ex-classmates but do keep in touch with some of them. Mostly lost touch after SPM.

    I seldom wear make up now. Only when go for dinner in a very grand venue or on special occasion but even then I will just put on minimal make up. Lazy to put on eye shadows. Hehe.

  4. I haven't been exactly able to keep in touch with my mates from elementary and secondary school because I've no idea where their current location is and we're no longer close too.It's a difficult scenario for the pre-u; am still maintaining contact with a bunch of them even after graduation. =)

    I'm laying off makeup for a while man, and yes, being yourself is the best. No need for makeup. *winks*

  6. i seldom keep in touch with my ex-classmates or skoolmates these days. Most of them hav family or work commitment and can't make it to gathering. Life goes on, sometimes i dun feel like we are as close as before and it seem awkward to mingle together again.

  9. you are true, i guess as we grow older, the less we are able to meet up or gather up with schooldays mates already lah.. everyone has got their own career and family, furthermore many are already not in the country, so it's kind of difficult to get everyone together lah.. the most only still keeping in touch with a few closer ones, but then won't be meeting up regularly also lah.. your stage now still good lah.. because i guess you still have lots of wedding dinners to go, and that would be the event where you can meet up with ex-classmates..

  10. yeah, of course it's a good change to see your old time friends all gone into a new chapter of their lives, including yourself also lah, that means everyone grows up together also lah.. and i think no need to purposely dressed up or make up, because that will make everyone feel you are too pretentious, everyone has been seeing everyone with the most basic and plain look since school days right?? if 化衡晒粧 sekali nobody can recognize then lagi more bikin malu, hahahahaha..

  12. I hardly meet my friends anymore, nowadays mostly balik kampung will be to hide at home. Makes me worried if and when I get married, who will be my heng dai XD

  13. It is good to keep in touch with them. Can catch up and share about common things in this phase of life. Very sad I was not able to keep in touch with my ex school mates. Easier sad then done but you are proof that it can be done. Good for you!

  14. Still keep in touch with my secondary school and JC friends through facebook, even went tour with my secondary school friend

  15. That's great Hayley! :)

    I only keep in touch with a handful of my ex school mates from high school and it's usually only a once a year affair during CNY when everyone is back.

    I have 7 people that I keep in touch with from uni, partly coz I did it in Melbourne so I don't get to see them often, 2 of those have actually visited so that's awesome.

    I think high school friends are the ones I see the most - once a year, since they're not from KL but Sibu.

  16. We meet once every two years - used to be four but people are dropping like flies, one by one so best to meet more often while we still can. Just had a reunion with students I taught in my first year of teaching - 1978...will blog about it soon.

  24. To me, this is just a stage. When all the small children grow up a little, you and your gang will have more time for yourselves. I shall see you ladies back to shape and dress even better than before. I am sure of this.
