Wij Houden Van Oranje Leeuw!


Alex Van Straten, one of my dearest friends, is probably going insane right about now!

I can picture him running around singing the Dutch soccer anthem and shouting in Dutch how great their soccer team is for the world to hear.


Sir Lex and I last year. Do You remember?

But I'm also feeling kinda guilty :-(

He's been back in KL for quite some time now and even after numerous calls and texts to meet up, I still haven't found time to meet him. I know it's not right for me to treat someone I've known for a long time, and one of my closest friends, this way but I am just not ready to see him for the unresolved issues I still am going through.

Just the thought of Sir Lex, as we call him, brings me back to a time last year when I was building something beautiful, one that I really believed would last a lifetime.

And I fear that if I were to meet him, the memories would bring unbearable sadness and pain and right now, I don't think I am strong enough to be able to go through it.

But I know Alex and I will be friends forever. And when the time is right and we finally meet up, I'm sure he'll understand why I avoided him all this while.

Sir Lex and My Small Baby in Belgium. We rendezvoused in Brussels; My Small Baby and I from London, Alex came from Amsterdam.

On this night when the Orangemen beat the odds to send the world's best team home, my thoughts are with Alex and for the record, while I am not be able to personally tell him, I am truly happy for him.

And as I'm writing this, I have a huge smile on my face remembering the memories. Oh, by the way, I'm sure My Li'l Girl would definitely remember Alex as well, don't you Shine?


This is truly the World Cup of upsets and memories!
