There were some plans in the past but it was hard of us to meet our schedules as my former Korean student is now working for an airline company which makes her schedule very unpredictable.
Finally, we've set the meeting today after eight long years! I was excited as she's really one of the sweetest students I had and I can still remember how she behaves and how affectionate she was and I have to see how she has been after these years.
We decided to meet somewhere a subway station close to her hotel and I was so surprised she ran towards me while shouting my name as she saw me heading to her direction. She's still the same lovely student and a friend. It touched me, a lot ....seeing her again and it was beyond words how glad I was. We headed to Black Canyon for a drink and then later to Waterside Resort Restaurant for dinner.
I've learnt her updates and her plans and all I can say is that I'm very happy for her. She's been married for two years and she's so beautiful in her wedding pictures. I was also happy hearing more updates from other students who were in the same class and they are all doing very well right now and have stable jobs in good companies.
This is a rare case for some to be reunited with old friends and truly time doesn't erase the memories we have and they are priceless. Today is a remarkable day and looking forward for the likes in the coming days. One lesson I learnt in the meeting, I have to make plans more seriously and go for those I really want to achieve. And I'm thankful with what I have right now and that's including where I am. To my former student, Rina. Thank you for keeping in touch and taking the chance for us to meet again. Until next time. :)
And by the way, I got a present from her. I love this! :)
