the value of friendship  
everyone has different expectations and standards. from life, from work, from family, from friends.

the essence of friendship has been a load on my mind lately.

what do we expect from our friends? do these differ, according to the level of closeness and relationship?

mine are very simple.

i expect to be loved unconditionally. i expect moral support. i expect total honesty.

and in return, i have done and will do the same.

i do not expect to be judged. i do not expect mates to freak out on me. i do not expect to be lied to, or be kept in the dark when there are concerns about myself.

my friends may do things which i personally do not agree with... but i love them no less.

there is a big bunch of lovely folks in my life who i call my best friends. some of them know each other, some are "stand-alone" entities. some of them i see on a regular basis, some of them i catch only once in a blue moon. all are very dear to me, and to whom i am fiercely loyal to.

i believe i am a good friend.

will you threaten my brother into returning the US$700 stolen from me?

what a scumbag of a brother you have...

i don't think i can scare him very much with my physical size but i do have a namecard i can pass to you to enquire about assistance!

if that doesn't work, let me know when and i'll bring the meatcleaver.

I no longer keep in contact with my friends when I was in high school/secondary school. Perhaps, I was truly a different person then. My current good friends are friends that I have met along the way. I wish I had that one friend that has been there regardless. T'is not my luck :)

nay... don't see it as luck sweetie. perhaps you didn't meet the people who are to become your good friends till later on in life... which is not a bad thing. as long as you treasure the present and the future. :)

Unconditional Expectations! I wanna write a BOOK on this!!!! hyuk!hyuk!
Eh...unconditional is redundant next to love lah...

then of course, there are people in this world who love conditionally. in which case, the meaning of "love" in their eyes is questionable.

i find this especially true in singapore. which is why i had to say it clearly.
