Serendipity

I have been bothered.
Bothered by something I do not know would somehow have effect on me still.

See, although I married my first "boyfriend". Before him, there were "some" guys that I "almost" thought were my soulmate. And, there is this particular guy just before the hubby. Lets just call him Mr.X(as in the "almost" Ex-bf.....haha)

I said "almost" because I would have ended up being with him if he hadn't gone so far away for a good 4 years for his degree and subsequently masters. With the distance, we sort of drifted apart even before we manage to start. Although he did ask me if i would wait for him.....well, thats something that I didn't have an answer to. Long-distance-relationship is HARD. REALLY HARD when you don't have the $$$$ and even harder when you're still young and naive, even the more a great challenge when you are still in the stage of "maybe".....it would be easier if you're already going steady. We weren't. I admit it broke my heart when he decided to go. I secretly wished that he would stay back but being a GOOD FRIEND that I was, I still encouraged him to persue his studies.

Fastforward, not going to the details of the drama's when I actually got steady with the hubby.
He did still ask me if i'm sure of my decision, i assured him hubby is THE ONE.
Though there was resistance, he wished me well.

Before I tied the knot.
Mr.X once visited me. And one time when we met online on MSN, he told me about this movie called
"Serendipity" and that i should watched it, knowing that i love romantic movies.
Till today I haven't manage to find the movie.
But just yesterday I heard that Mr.X is getting married this year.
I felt a knot on my throat.
I really don't know why I'm feeling this way.
I can't say that I'm sad because I am not.
But i really don't know what is this feeling called. It is a very foreign feeling I have inside of me.
So i was reminded of the show "Serendipity".
So I googled, and read the story review.
Its such a lovely movie.....

Serendipity is such a lovely word....
Accidental discovery

Oh and I thought this quote from wikipedia is so cute
:
"Serendipity is looking in a haystack for a needle and discovering a farmer's daughter." Julius Comroe Jr. "

It's one of my fave movies & I love this quote from it:

Jonathan: This is the ultimate blend to drink. How'd you find this place?

Sara: I first came in because of the name: Serendipity. It's one of my favorite words.

Jonathan: It is? Why?

Sara: It's such a nice sounding word for what it means: a fortunate accident.

p/s Try & catch the repeat on Astro or get it on DVD. You'll love it.
