The Days with Dave

.. is still counting. 

Many people ask us when are we going to marry, and thank you so much for those who see us as a perfect match. However, as for the current plan, our focuses are on the business and career, then only marriage comes next. We are still young to say this now.

Well, to explain how much I love Dave, I don't know where to start. Saying "I Love You" are not enough to express my feelings, let me note down and thank him for all the love and care he'd given to me, for all the moments we shared, which I truly treasured. It is because of this special date a few years back, I have been able to share many other special days with him in my life. Although no material gift can adequately express my appreciation for the kind of boyfriend he has been, the yearly blog post will have to do.

In case if you want to read back, please refer as follows :-
4. And now, this year would be in conversation form :) 

Sometimes, the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people.

It was one midnight at Cameron Highlands, the weather was so cool outside :
Me : *pat* Dear..
Dave : (half awake) hmm?
Me : My back head very pain.
Dave : Why? You okay or not?
Me : I don't know why suddenly but, very pain. Here (pointing).
Dave : I think I go down to find panadol for you now.
Me : Where you want to buy from at this hour?
Dave : I don't know where, maybe convenient store, I will find don't worry. (without changing pyjamas, taking wallet, with messy hair, ready to go).
Me : *quickly hold his arm* Dear no need. So late already. I think I may be okay after a while.

He always carry bag for me whenever we go dating because he says heavy :
Me : Come I take, my bag.
Dave : Why?
Me : You carry like that for me you look very ugly eh.
Dave : Care for your bone please I take. Nevermind lah, I don't care others' sights. Their sight wouldn't help me to earn money.
Love is when my condition is more important than his own.

One another night having job mission at Ipoh, I had a serious sick. I hardly slept, walking towards the end of the bedside and leaning, while he, tired of taking care of me the whole day, snoring beside me :
Dave : ZzzZzzZzzzZz
Me : *cough non-stop* 
After 10 minutes..
Dave : *Suddenly woke and shocked* Dear where are you?!!
Me : *silent*
*He panic searching. Immediately he felt relieve after seeing me leaning on the bedside*
Dave : Dear why are you sitting on the floor there?
Me : I feel okay like this.
Dave : Come here, beside me.
For the first time ever, I almost cried the moment he was awoken by shock finding I wasn't sleeping beside him because I felt deeply how he cared so much about me. He sees me at my absolute worst, and he loves me anyways.
Last night at Kinta Riverfront, Ipoh. Sick, terrible right? Imagine how hard he took care of me.

One day when we were going out for only a movie :
Me : Why are you wearing this slipper?
Dave : Watch movie only. Haven't buy a nice one.
Me : Excuse. Boys are always like this, ain't you all?
Dave : Like how?
Me : Tend to be so casual (like, seriously) after having girlfriend.
Dave : Correct! Because we already have the sense of security, so able to focus on the things we want to do.
Me : But!, is only girlfriend, not wife. Girlfriend will fly (flee), I will also fly de worrrrrrr ~( ̄▽ ̄)~
Dave : You wouldn't. I already assume you are going to be my wife, and we (the people we are close with) also assume you are.
When he speaks or does something for me, I can feel so touched, no matter how simple it was, even just a sentence.

I am a musical noobie (in chinese, 音痴), and I don't know swimming :
Me : *singing in the car*
Dave : *driving*
Me : How? How? Got run key mehh????
Dave : Got.
Me : Where got? Where? Same mah same lah I sing the key, don't understand where different.
Dave : (busy explaining to me) Gottttt. I teach you. Come, sing again for me.
Me : Don't want. Eh dear, why is it singing so difficult like swimming?
Dave : You can swim and your head is near to the surface already, don't understand why you still don't want to breath lor?
Me : Cannot go up. Can I give up swimming?
Dave : Cannot. *singing*
Me : (say don't want but still, follow singing, with running-key-tone) =.=
I am always the one who annoys him, but he still wants to spend time being with me. I know I found the right one when he teaches me many things, makes me improve from what I was before along the ways.
Always annoy him in car under save condition (we love life).

Due to the nature of his business, he usually would have meeting with team or clients. One night on the last week of 2013 :
Me : Dear the birthday event you all meeting just now is for 31 Dec 2013?
Dave : Yes, it is the 21st birthday of xxx's sister. Big event. 
Me : o..
Dave : So we need to do a lot of preparations.
Me : o..... Then 你不是和我度过 13 14 的人。
Dave : Of course I am the one to accompany dear for 一生一世 ya, just couldn't be this 13 14  (><)

One day he had a commercial shooting for a hotel and one of the scenes was about a model girl wearing bikini to pose at the pool as required by the hotel authority. I jealous :
Dave : Dear I just finished shooting and got back to hotel. A lot foods provided, very full.
Me : Enjoy until won't find me yesterday. No goodnight also.
Dave : Haha I am not interested on her ya. I got dear already :) We're very tired of doing the shootings, non-stop planning and shooting from first day until today.
Me : Hmph  \ (︶︿︶) /
Dave : And I miss dear a lot these days because whenever I went to beautiful places, I normally accompanied by dear but this time don't have. zzz.
He sees what a mess I can be, how moody I can get, how hard I am to handle, but still wants me in his life.

He is not a romantic person, sometimes quite stiff (木讷) hhahhaha.. BUT he improves a lot I can say especially time management (keep going my dear!) :
During Valentine's Day (12+am) :
Dave : Happy Valentine's Day ya dear :) Tomorrow we go paktoh ok? (means today 14th because after 12am already) 
Me : Wait until my neck long. I thought you forget (〒︿〒)
Dave : Aiyo.. How can I forget? So tomorrow 3pm we go out ya!

During my convocation day :
Dave : *touch & sayang my hair* Dear you are very pretty today.
Me : ~( ̄▽ ̄)~ Really? Thanks dear! HAHA.
The best feeling is when I look at him, and he is already staring. He doesn't give me compliment (except the compliment as an encouragement) out of habit, but he gives me little surprise sometimes to cheer me and let me know how beautiful I am in his eyes.

He says he likes my eyes & hair the most. I always that suey-heng because I like to jeng-gu him (作弄) :
Me : Dear I go to cut hair tomorrow.
Dave : Ok, but don't cut short.
..... Tomorrow ..... (texting)
Me : Dear I cut liao o..
Dave : Har don't scare me. Show me photo.
Me : *purposely tie the hair, make the illusion of short hair, capture and send him*
Dave : Wah real short ar. zzz.
Me : Unhappy? Why? Don't love me anymore?
..... No reply ....
Me : Like that lah. Cut short already then neglect me.
Dave : Haha still love you ya :) I guess dear more cute in short hair. Haha..
Me : 骗你的啦!\(≧▽≦)/ Your beloved long hair is still here \( ̄ω ̄)/
Dave : Haha very pretty (o ^__^ o)
He loves me, for all that I am, all that I have been, and all I am yet to be.

We are going to clean and restructure his room, so there goes to our conversation :
Me : Eh dear, how are you going to repay me?
Dave : Wah repay.. Help you to maintain?
Me : Cannot. You must maintain it.
Dave : Hmm.. Help you to make it dirty.
Me : What? I want alternative C.
Dave : Help you to make your room dirty *grins*
Me : (⊙﹏⊙) 

He is a wedding cinematographer, and I start worrying :
Me : I like your recent work very much but I got one question.
Dave : What is it?
Me : You always shoot nicely for people, but who is the one going to be our videographer when it's our turn?
Dave : Haiya this you don't have to worry, xxx be ours.
Me : Wedding once a lifetime, I don't want to take risk loh.
Dave : I myself shoot.
Me : ( = . = ) you groom, cannot.
Dave : Ok what, nobody does that, I create the trend.
Me : *stare at him with sepet eyes*
This quote best describes him : "A person who irritates you is always the one who loves you very much but hardly express it".

We do have some funny stuff. Like what people says, a couple tends to get alike the longer they are in the relationship. I really have no idea what we are doing or laughing at :

I always love the part of us that we show our pure and true faces (no heavy make up), clear and real characteristics to each other as well as to public. Our days in Bali this year :
We just woke up, having breakfast at our homestay In Da Lodge.
Waiting the Kecak Dance to begin @ Uluwatu Temple

Yes, no one is perfect. Despite of the careless (sometimes) and easygoing personalities he has, he will try all means and at his best to protect me whenever he can. I don't have to say much, the pictures will just do the talkings and prove :

Photography was once his favourite hobby, he used to share with me his thinkings, including some hidden intentions that usually some other photographers would have. To avoid unnecessary hatred, I wouldn't reveal some contents.
Me : Oh? Show girl can earn money? Ok then can I? (of course not going, again just to jeng-gu him)
Dave : You cannot go.
Me : Why? Just stand there can earn money already what HAHA.
Dave : Cannot. Show girl will have to let a lot of people see especially guys, I don't want.

Me : Dear, xxx asked me for portrait photography. Can I?
Dave : Cannot. Unless the photographer is the person you really know and seek for your help for true purpose.
Me : Oh, then I very kesian lurrr no portrait photo.
Dave : You can only have one photographer. That's me. I shoot for you :)

Me : If people (either photographers or models) invite you for the shootings, would you go?
Dave : Why should I? I am not interested.
Me : If the model wears bikini, or if you work with a group of girls, honestly I will jealous loh! (>﹏<) 
Dave : I would never want to go, no purpose, except when it is a real commercial/business.

Yes, the portraits of me that you usually see on my Facebook or my blog, they are all captured by him. I wouldn't say he is the best photographers in the world, but the portraits he captured for me are all highly treasured and I am seriously contented and of course likey! Don't you think nice? HAHA. No edit lah.


On this our anniversary, we may yet to have the wealth we are pursuing, but we do have each other and that is worth more than anything in the world. I know that, no matter what, we'll stay together, through thick and thin. That's what real love and commitment is all about, and that's what I have for you by far.

I am so grateful that you continue to love me too, despite my failures and shortcomings. Thank you for always being there and helping me to be all that I can be. I honestly can't think of how my life would be without you. I know that as the years pass, the love that we share will continue to grow. I look forward to those years when we'll be raising our kids together, building a home, and fulfilling our dreams.

As we flip one more year in the calendar of our relationship, let’s promise each other more love and laughter. The passing years have not diminished my love for you in the least. Instead, my love has only deepened with time. Happy 4th anniversary, my dearest. I love you.
