Fen Soong: A Fairytale Friendship
27 Aug 2018STORIESBY SweetEscape

“What is the best kind of friendship?”

We sat down with our own Fen Soong to chat about what her idea of the best kind of friendship is, and like always, her take is always inspiring.

"True friendship means investing time in each other. Time is our life's most invaluable asset, which is why having someone who is willing to make and spend time with you, is truly priceless. In life, we grow up as children who are oblivious with the concept of time. We are used to not giving a care of the ticking clocks, so much that maybe sometime we take friendships for granted. Days change, friends always remain - or so we thought.

As time passes, life and everything in between happen, and friendships can come and go, in a blink of an eye. We say to ourselves, “we’ll make time tomorrow, we’ll meet one day, have a cup of coffee and catch up”. Until tomorrow becomes another day, and another day becomes never. More often than not, friendships have to take the back seat because we are so accustomed to prioritizing everything else in life. Our careers, personal achievements, love, family, and other endless things. The fact of the matter is, if we don’t make time for anything in life, nothing will ever materialize.

I've known my three charming girlfriends for quite sometime. We reconnected over Thanksgiving dinner last year and started spending more time with each other. This trip to Batu happened on a spontaneous whim! Our journey was filled with many things, from typcial girly things like playing dress up, putting on beauty masks at night to some muscle-stimulating adventures like hiking to the waterfall and dipping in the freshwater of Coban Rondo falls. But above all, it’s a trip that was filled with meanings and love.

Real friends can only come by if you make the time and effort for it. And real friendships can be better than all the love stories put together in fairy tales - in sickness and in health, for richer or poorer, in happiness and sadness, through vulnerabilities and life’s highs. Till never do us part."
