that you actually look forward to the trip.
– Caskie Stinett, Out of the Red, 1960
he was a diplomat, right from the start.
born in Philippines,
spent university years in United Kingdom,
was coming home from Switzerland when I first met him,
said temporary goodbyes when leaving for Dubai,
appeared on the paper for what he is doing in Hongkong,
before finally left for New York,
only to get vaccinated for leaving to Namibia.
he was a diplomat, alright.
oh so lucky,
the one he picked as his wife!
*memang asikan jadi istri diplomat daripada jadi diplomat. hahahaha*
A diplomat is a man who always remembers a woman’s birthday,
but never remembers her age – Robert Frost
