I am blogging here instead of on www.jolenestory.blogspot.com because I do not want you all to have to trouble yourselves to visit 2 blogs at a time! Do you all see how much I love you all?
Anyway, let's fast forward from here.
My 22nd birthday had just passed last week. My 2 beautiful girls came all the way to my place to give me a surprise and I am absolutely so touched by them!
A BIG SHOUTOUT TO LAM HUI QI AND WOON NIAN JUNE. I love you all very much. I'm sure that my dear Amanda in Finland would have came along if she was in SG but well, it's alright, I still love you dearie.
We have come so fast since secondary school days and you girls are the ONLY one who has stuck by me throughout SO MUCH. And I really mean the ONLY ONES.
I admit, I am not a very sociable person. Yes, I may have over 1000 thousand friends on Facebook but I am actually very much hated. I am crude, vulgar and I don't give a shit about trying to keep relationships. I mean I do know how to cherish people and love them but I am so cynical of humans that with just a slight action, I know how much a person really treasures me.
I used to have let's say 3 very close girlfriends. E,C and G. G was always silent throughout everything and she hangs out with us and have fun. Being around with E is very tiring. Not in the starting stage but when she starts to get over demanding as a friend and such. And when you fall in love, E does little actions behind. I don't want to ponder anymore about it and blabber non stop cos it doesn't matter anymore. Neither of them will read my blog so it's fine. They don't matter to me anymore and no longer do I matter to them. I could live with that. We all live individual lives now and all I am bringing with me towards the future is our precious memories in the past. I will always keep them in my heart :)
And than I met the other 2 girls. FY and J. I got close to J when we were in the home in the past. She is a really nice girl and she gives in to my incessant tempers and my constant ramblings towards her. I cared a lot for her and all I ever wanted was for her to wake up and not be cheated by men over and over again. I stood by her all throughout last year, surprising her on birthday and being there for her all the time. She was constantly in my thoughts. As for FY, we were very close also from the home but we only contacted each other around last year. She was having some tragic marital problems and I tried my best to be there for her and the kids, being there for her when she needs, surprising her on her birthday and always guiding her when she wants me to teach her how to deal with the marriage issues. I had so much on my mind all the time but I always put my own troubles aside just to help her. I loved the 2 of them so much but guess what did I get in return? All I wanted was to be treated the same way I had cared and loved them.
But? J found a new boyfriend and I was eventually forgotten. FY settled her marriage issues and once again, I was no longer needed in her life already. They were both suddenly too busy for her. It gets tiring when it was always me who had to ask them how was it going on with their lives and how were they doing.... Did they every asked about me or cared about mine? They held such an important place in my heart but when I needed them to show their simple support like promoting Jolene Story for me... They didn't even bother. My heart died for them on the day my article in The Straits Time was published. So many congratulated me and told me that they were proud of me. Everyone except J and FY. I stuck by them throughout all their dark and gloomy days but once they stepped into sunshine days, I was forgotten. I thought that they would help me in promoting my book, I had THOUGHT SO.
ANYHOO. These girls in the below photos are amazing and wonderful and they always put up with my thick-skinned front. They are always forced to help me RT and share stuffs about Jolene's Story and my online shop : www.facebook.com/ComeShopAtOopz . They are the only girlfriends I have came across who would be there for me through my gloomy days and sunshine days and they will always remember how well I treat them.
Thank you so much!
I have to stop the gloomy rants above because once I start writing, I really cannot stop.
Here's the cover of Jolene's Story to spice things up a little.
My book has went into print around the 10th of October and by 25th of October, it should have been published if everything goes well! Hard copies of my book will reach all bookstores by the second week of November!
I AM SO EXCITED!!
My book will also be available at the "Singapore Writer's Festival" so come on down for this huge event alright? I will be speaking at one of the panel discussions on the 10th of November!

In the meantime, I shall give you readers something to do for me :)
