The first goodbye…

So after buying 8 pairs of shoes and one item of clothing each, I had my first goodbye, with Ange Pants. (Photo at left is a perfect example of the two of us. We’re either being weird, making faces, acting really stupid or just laughing for no reason at all.)

I didn’t expect to cry – how can you get emotional after gorging on shoes all day?? But as we hugged I actually really just didn’t wanna let go! (She’s like my lovahhh 😉 ) Tears just started forming in my eyes and they kept falling out as I tried to let her know how much she meant to me without sounding totally trite, but I think I failed and just sounded like I was in love. haha (Ah, am totally tearing up as I write this!)

It’s amazing, the friendships and bonds that can form with people over just a year and a half – we clicked right away when we met, and when we were roommates at a shoot in Langkawi at the Four Seasons (back when I was a stylist at my old job, she’s a makeup artist), and we’ve been tight ever since.

As I walked away I couldn’t help but wonder whether I was crazy to let go of all my awesome friends here, crazy to leave a life that I do love here, with the security of family and friends, but I also knew that I was just being emotional and that I must have planned this out because it really is something that I want, regardless of how sad I am to leave everyone.

Anyway, am off to Malaysia w/the fam for a week (assuming we’re allowed to leave today – it’s Typhoon 8!), and I promise I’ll catch up on blogs when I’m back! Have a great week everyone. 🙂
