New Year, New Wish, Forever Love

Dear hummingbird,

Pablo Picasso once said:

"Love is the greatest refreshment in life." 

        2013 is fast approaching and tonight, I load this letter with much love and fondness for you who is my one and only adorable sweetheart.

       In 2013, I wish that you will be enlightened with the brightest sun forever and may its rays be open enough to be bound and hold you stiff, just to tell again, that I am at all times there for you. 

       I wish that in 2013, every time I look into your eyes, I fall in love again. I know that I've only known you for less than a tenth of my life, but I feel like I've known you since the dawn of time. I'm never tired of looking at your pictures, reading your letters that you've written to me. All of these things keep me so happy and feeling so blessed that I have truly found the one person that I want to spend eternity with. You are the only person on earth that has ever been able to calm me down when I get worked up. Talking to you makes my day great.

       In 2013, I could have a crappy day at work, but at night when I get to talk and think of you, you lift my gloomy spirits. You never makes me feel like I can have a bad day, and that is so uplifting to me.

       Like I say so many times, you're my Angel, sent from Heaven above to be my one and only. Your touch can excite me. When we are together, I wonder if you're really there, or did I just had a sweet dream. 

       Having this chance of dedication, I wish you'd find your truth happiness one day. Your name will always be kept in my mind. Wherever I am in life, no matter what happen, it'll never change.

        Forever in love with you, Sabrina

For the other half of my sky,

Of Question & Love

Lord Alfred Tennyson once said:
"Oh tell her, brief is life but love is long"

              The date, 12th of December, 2012 (12.12.12) that happened once in a century passed by yesterday. And what a wonderful moment when I traveled 500km just to go to Malacca and spent time with her. Anyway, when it comes to love, there is always plenty of question about it. Confused people always asked: 

"Is there anything more beautiful in life than a boy and a girl clasping clean hands and pure hearts in the path of marriage? 

               Or the younger love birds will most probably asked:

"Can there be anything more beautiful than young love?"

                 Well, for me, yes, there is a more beautiful thing. It is the wonders of an old man and an old woman finishing their journey together on that same path. Their hands are gnarled and glued to each other, but still clasped; their faces are seamed, but still radiant; their hearts are physically bowed and tired, but still strong with love and devotion for one another.

                 Enough said, yes, there is a more beautiful thing than young love. That's called an Old Groovy Kind of Love Between An Old Man & An Old Lady. 

To you whom I have met, from the very first moment I saw you I knew that we were destined to be together. It has been so long since a woman has captured my attention so fully or made my heart beat the way it did that cool night in September, years ago Your smile lights up my entire spirit. Your laughter fills me with joy, and your mere presence will warm any room. I have no doubt you are the woman made especially for me. 

Thank you for the comfortable conversations and for asking me to be yours. Most importantly, thank you for sharing your love and wanting to make me your other half of sky. No matter how slowly or at what distance our courtship developed, I know standing before God and our future family, vowing to be your partner for life, was the easiest decision I could have ever made. 

Each day that passes makes our love for each other grow stronger. Although I know it’s hard for us to be apart, I know there is nothing that can keep us apart forever. Our desires will continue to stretch across any distance, over the Titiwangsa Ranges and Straits of Malacca between us. Nothing can stand between us, and nothing will stop me from meeting you. 

You are my future and nothing can ever keep us from our destiny. I miss you more every day. I am here with open arms where you will some day finally arrive, right where you belong. I love you Sabrina. 

Love Always,

The Half Moon Serenades.

Of Dogs & Love

Elbert Hubbard once said:

"A friend is someone who knows all about you and still loves you."

               I grew up in a neighborhood that was pet-friendly. There is always the sound of dog barking or cat fighting days and night. As nearly anyone who has adopted a dog or cat in their life can attest, there’s something special about a rescued pet; it’s as if the animal senses he’s been given a second chance at life. That’s certainly the case with Lucky, a Golden Retriever who was rescued before she was to be euthanized.  Since then, Lucky has taken on the role of rescuer to five-year-old Jason, the son of my neighbor.

              Jason suffers from San Filippo syndrome, an inherited, metabolic disease where children lose the ability to speak, walk and eat. The disease also causes severe neurological damage that leads to aggressive behavior, hyperactivity and seizures.

              Unless that changes, Jason isn’t expected to live past the age of 15 and may be in a vegetative state by the time he is eight. Realizing that every moment is extra precious, a combination of prayer and persistence led his father to Lucky. They took to each other immediately, like kindred spirits as Lucky greeted him with licks and affection.

             Lucky has become a literal shoulder for Jason to lean on when walking, and a calming influence when he’s agitated. And while his dad makes sure that Lucky gets time off, he says that it’s hard to get Lucky to leave Jason’ side.

             And that's for me, is a groovy kind of love between a dog and a human.


To you whom I have met, it’s a beautiful time of year. Almost as beautiful as you. The scent of promise, the smell of skin, the bittersweet buzz of longing, this is how I feel you in my life; alive and electric, deep and wordless.

377 love letters dedicated for you still can't described how much my feeling for you, like the way I really feel. That I can’t describe, not even to call it a hunger.

Right now, the light is like honey and the air is like feathers. The evening is made of music and I’m already dancing in my heart. It’s almost as lovely as you Sabrina.

Until then, put in your heart the fact that I am in love with you way before we knew each other. Wait for me, for the next few days, distance is just the things of the past for us. I am coming home, where you heart is my hummingbird.

Love is a dream that comes alive when we meet.

Loving you,

The Half Moon Serenades.
