MY NOT MONOTONOUS WEEKEND

My last weekend was not monotonous.

On Thursday, I took the train to Kuala Lumpur (KL) .

The next morning, I arrived in KL and had some ice cream scoops before lunch.

I went for my eye treatment right after lunch.

I visited my friend and her newborn baby in the evening.

The next day, my friends and I had a super duper buffet lunch at Istana Hotel before heading over to Suria KLCC for movies and a bit of shopping.

Scroll down for some pictures taken in KL.

Superior night (2nd class) upper bed. This is the unique way to see Malaysia :)

Go to KTMB for more info about the coach, schedule and ticket.

SURVIVING LONG DISTANCE LOVE!

I am the survivor of a long distance relationship.

My boyfriend and I have been 3 years all long distance.

It’s really hard, but having a strong foundation of trust is super important.

I don’t think I would have survived without it.

But, if two people are committed to making the relationship work and pour their hearts into it, a long distance relationship can thrive and be totally worth the heartache :)

Here some tips and advice on how to survive a long distance relationship.

1) Communication

Since everything is now almost possible through clicks, you can’t blame distance for lack of communication anymore.

All you have to do is to find time for your regular virtual date.

An Internet is God send for people who are in long distance relationships :) .

Not only can you communicate via email and instant messaging for free, but you can also talk to each other through free services like Skype! And that means no more hundreds cash a month phone bills!

Since our first day, my boyfriend and I have communicated everyday in some form (email, Skype, Facebook, etc).

No lies! almost everyday with talking. The loneliness is hard :)

Surviving long distance relationship via Skype!

It’s pretty tough to handle, but thanks to all the advancements in technology. It has become easier to handle :)

2) Spend time together

Even though your partner may live hours or miles away, you can still experience “date nights” with him/her.

Skype will be your best friend. And don’t be afraid to get a little freaky on it ;)

Is there any movies you both like? Plan to watch  at the same time (coordinate your time zones) .

It’s fun doing the same thing at the same time. Even though you’re apart, you’re still sharing a moment “together”.

Sometimes, we watched movie or video together online :)

There’s no reason to miss out on some of the better parts of dating completely just because you’re not physically together.

My favorite his ringtone

3) Stay connected in each other’s life

Share the important details with your lover.

Your partner would love to be a part of the world you are in.

It’s important to care about what’s going on in your loved one’s life when you’re not there and get to know your partner’s family and friend.

And find something your partner is passionate about that you can get involved with.

  I learn much more about his likes, dislikes, and passions

4) Love gift

Sending packages to each other keeps you thinking about what the other person might like and helps them feel cared for and appreciated.

Come on, do I really have to tell you how much people love to be surprised by a package in the mail? :) Another great surprise: a handwritten letter. Even better—a surprise visit!

My boyfriend gave me his sweatshirt to remind me of him. I thought it was really neat because smelling his smell made it feel like he was that much closer :) The smell of him helps me fall asleep, it’s like a teddy bear for me :)

Simply great thing 

5) Trust each other

The one thing that destroys long distance love affairs more than any other is a lack of trust.

It requires very strong trust, commitment, guidelines, and communication.

Geographical limitations should not destroy the bond between you and your partner.

You might feel like giving up but as long as you hold on to your love, everything’s going to be alright.

LDL8

When other people tell you that you’re going to break apart, just flash a smile. 

LDL9

Remember that the greater the sacrifice, the more fulfilling the feeling is after overcoming all the obstacles

Why online relationships are not weird? The answer is everybody’s doing it.

I have known people who met on Facebook, MySpace, blogs, forums and many other places.

I can’t be the only person who does this, can I? :)
