Continuation of K.R #9. I felt at ease with Stephen. This was strange to me given the fact that we didn’t know each other very well. When you factor in the reality that we’d only hung out less than 10 times in the past 2 years, it just didn’t seem logical to feel this way. I couldn’t understand what it was about him that made me … Continue reading K.R #10: Losing Grip
Continuation of Karat Romance #8. “People always make time for who or what is important to them,” I don’t know which side of the fence I stand on in regards to the aforementioned quote. Somedays I am overwhelmed with work and myself, that I spend any free time for myself instead of socialising — be it virtually or physically. Stephen reached a point of Busy … Continue reading Karat Romance #9: Will You Let Me Know?
Continuation of Karat Romance #7. I have a fear of talking about anything that makes me happy as I could be jinxing it from happening or staying longer than it should be, you know? It’s unhealthy because happiness should be shared, right? But I’m scared. What happens if you talk about future plans or life events so often, then it ends up not happening?

Before I could hit send to my carefully composed “who dis” message, I received another text saying, “Hey, it’s Stephen, … Continue reading K.R #7: Is This The Real Life Or Is This Just Fantasy?
“You need to date a man,” was said to me quite often among my girlfriends. Yet I hadn’t met one beyond a television screen in my 22 years of existence. So, I didn’t know what characteristics to look out for. Even though I have my “entire life ahead of me” and there are “plenty of fishes in the sea”, it honestly felt like I was … Continue reading K.R #6: The Perfect Stranger
Continuation of Karat Romance #4. He came over to where I was seated and started the conversation with a generic sentence. “Hey, it’s been a while, huh?” Uh, not long enough apparently because I still remembered his existence. But it’s okay, I was at a better place — a higher place, if you will — so I laughed and asked when he got back to … Continue reading K.R. #5: The Time He Ran Out Of The Mamak
