{My} Serendipity - Collage exersice for my Raining Umbrella e-course

Tuesday, May 10, 2011

Today I would like to share about my second exercise for my e-course class - Raining Umbrella by Simply Hue. And today I also want to tell story about my serendipity. According to the dictionary, Wikipedia, Answer.com etc I concluded in the simple word that Serendipity means a chance or an accidental discovery.

Totally a 100% that my serendipity is my encountered with my husband. Here the flashback stories comes, I and my hubby met almost seven years ago and then we got married in the very short time (less than 6 months). But four years before the real meeting with him, we supposed to meet each other, it was for working purposes, I couldn't make it as it was heavy rain then the meeting canceled, since then I quit my job, I had a new life and I forgot about the postpone meeting. Four years later, my friend introduce me to him {again} and {still} because of work purposes but in the different circumstance. It' s fate we finally met :). We still maintained as a casual acquaintance till one day at 2am I had a vivid dream about him driving, long road, quiet and he picked up his phone and called me.... it was when at the few second my phone really rang and I saw an overseas number (I was in Indonesia and He is in Malaysia), and it was him calling me said he was driving toward north for early appointment in the morning and suddenly thinking about me...That's the most bizarre dream I ever had in my life till I married him not a long after the first phone called.

I still do having weird dream once in a while where I was feeling panic in the dream and when I wake up I felt a peace because he is beside me....
The song from Evan and Jarron - The distance is a Serendipity movie soundtrack, it played in my Itunes when I wrote this post.

I can't take the distance
I can't take the miles
I can't take the time until I next see you smile
I can't take the distance
And I'm not ashamed
That with every breath I take I'm callin your name
