I will be right before my laptop by 8.00 pm every night. We talk every night. We discuss many things every night. I report to him about my well-being, our children. He asks me whether Along and Ain have done their homework or not. If it's a school holiday he'll ask if Along and Ain have read their books and done the exercises. He asks me about what each of the kids is doing. I'll report to him that Apit is playing power rangers or watching his favourite 'Chon de Sip' (Shaun the Sheep cartoon). Sometimes playing Spiderman, Ben 10 or jigsaw puzzle games at the laptop. Along is reading story books or playing kibagames at the laptop and Ain is engrossed with her drawing, sometimes also seen playing kibagames. He always asks if Apit has taken his shower (because this little Apit likes to play hide and seek with me when it comes to having shower..he he).
He wants to know what we eat for dinner and I'll ask him the same. I take pity on him everytime he tells me what he has for dinner - always a simple one. If only I were with him, I'll cook everything that he wants to eat.
We discuss about the good news and the bad news, about our finance, where to go for the weekend outing and what to do if not going out. Just now we even had dinner 'together' since the time there is just half an hour later than Dubai. I mean spiritually, not physically. He told me he was hungry and wanted to order a room service meal. I told him to let me know once the food arrived so that we could eat 'together'. So, when the food arrived he let me know and we did 'eat together'... he there alone and I am here with the kids.
We even quarrelled through YM...sometimes over jealousy. He knows most of my contacts in blogspot and most of them are female, no problem. But when talking about my contacts in Multiply, his claws are showing...sometimes. Many of them are of the opposite gender. There was a time when I blogged about a certain guy, he got quite mad but he never holds a grudge though. I've learned my lesson. I'd have to come down to earth. Similarly, I have jealousy on his fb things too. Well...anyway it takes two to tango!
Again I'd say thanks to the technology. We are far but yet so near. I always wonder what would have happened some 15 years ago if we had the same modern technology as it is now. One thing for sure, more than half of my scholarship would go to the mobile phone prepaid cards. Cannot imagine how much I'd have spent making long-distance calls to the US. Luckily there was no YM in Malaysia 15 years ago. Otherwise, I'd have been stucked to the computer spending most of my making assignments time YMing to the loved one overseas. I just feel like I'm once again on a long-distance love affair with him. The only difference is that I'm now accompanied by the three As - our offsprings.
Every 2 to 5 days a week, he'll be working there in Tehran.
A beautiful rose in winter in Tehran snapped by hubby.
My SIL said, quoted from somewhere, a rose in winter is a sign of true love found...
