Hey! I’m back. Been busy for the week, and here are some little things I found for the past several weeks.
-There are lots of asian foods here. Noodles, rice, indian foods, Indonesian foods, are mostly and easily found here.
-People here mostly use walking and using bus as method of transport (for most foreigners)
-Most people here are Chinese, Indian, and Europeans
-The rain here is like soft shower, it’s intensity is very little.
-The air is cold, but what makes it colder is the wind.
-You can find indomie (Indonesian Instant noodle), asian spices, recipes, etc and anything else in the right place.
-Food here (in the heart of Auckland) ranges from $5 NZD to $12 NZD. The food mostly around my place is very healthy and very clean (graded and qualified) and food size also quite large.
I will update more as I progress here in New Zealand. Cheers!
Meet in the Dream
For me, this idea makes me think that my bed is a portal, a portal which leads me to a dream where I can meet her, regardless of time and space. In my dream, we can share experience, see each other, even we’re not in the same dream or not sleeping at the same time. We just meet each other. In one dream I met her, and when I woke up, I was happy, not sad because I couldn’t meet her, but I was happy just because I see her, even it’s a dream. The same thing if you see someone you love on a picture when you’re desperately missing her.
Once I missed my house, and I dreamed about it, walking through my house. And that is more than enough to sate my wish to see my house now.
Sometimes dreams are strange. Sometimes they are wonderful. Dream extracts what is hidden in our deepest thoughts and expose it to us. I wish I could see her over and over in my dream, just like Inception, but then again, the main character couldn’t move on with his deceased wife because in the dream she is real. I don’t want to be stuck in a dream where I can see her. I want reality, where I can see her for real and touch her for real. I’ll be back soon, dear. Don’t worry.
For most of human history, long-distance relationships have been impossible to sustain due to travel reasons alone. The internet age has made it much more feasible, but as I found out with my girlfriend, romance and relationships are a different beast when thousands of miles separate you.
The part in which I agree the most is the “end game plan”, which means that both of the couple must have the final plan in the end. For example, for me and my girlfriend, it’s the meetup. Where we can end our times apart, separated by time differences and distances, we need to meet up someday. This promise gives us hope, an optimistic view of our relationship. This is the quote I took from the website:
“Long-distance relationships that don’t have a goal to work towards—a vacation, the next meetup, or a permanent relocation—are relationships that will create their own expiration date. Goals give you a target, something to justify the stress of being apart. ”
Means that we have to change/end this LDR thingy. No one wants to be separated far away from the ones we love. I hope by giving her promise and hope that I will fulfill, she will be less stressed, her eyes will shine more, and her heart will be filled with joy and hopes, knowing that we will meet someday.

1. The knowledge that if you survive the distance, your relationship can survive anything.
2. You don’t have to be presentable all the time — you can have off days.
3. Long distance relationships are a lesson in effective communication.
4. For it to work, both parties must be equally committed.

So last night (in my timezone) I read about this post, some posts are really awesome. Like it tells you, if you can survive LDR, you can survive anything. Means that LDR is hard enough that “close” distance relationship difficulty won’t reach. Also, the LDR relationship is more than physical. It’s not about 2 physical bodies meet each other, see each other, touch, hug, etc, but it’s more like heart-to-heart communication, what can each of the two souls do when both of them can’t see each other. Since they can’t meet each other,they will tend to be more open to each other, share feelings, talk more compared to the times when they can meet each other physically. And yes it’s true. If both parties (man and woman) does not have commitment, is not on the same page and does not have shared goals, it will be hard.
Also I read the tips regarding to survive LDR. I will post that in the next post “Five Things I Wish I Knew before LDR”
