Arianna and I @ HP

I saw her standing beside the receptionist desk at the ground floor on the first day of training.
Some 2 years back!
She with her purple handbag and denim jacket
And that curly, wavy hair!
The next thing I know, she was in the same training room as I was.
And that we will be going to the same project.
She was also the person who told me that in 2 weeks time I will start smoking!
Oh yes, she can really smoke!
My ever so sweet and beautiful Italian friend.
She is my age. (so that means she is old!)
She was my very first friend in the Netherlands.
I met her approximately a month after I stepped foot in this cold country.
She was one of the first few I met by myself.

Now, I say this again.
“How can I miss you if I won’t go away?”

You will go away. Move forward. Find your path.
Follow your dreams!
Keep in touch bella! Will miss you and your fans around! xx

Facebook Group: With my Schatje

With My Schatje

Here is a bit of us when we were just starting.

I created our own Facebook Group to keep our “fire” from burning facebook.

I was in Malaysia/Philippines.  He was in The Netherlands.

I knew it was not really to his 100% approval, but he didn’t want to hurt me.

So he agreed.

We just thought as well that this will be a  nice souvenir for the future.

For Zoë.

With My Schatje

We filled it up with songs – dedicated to one another.

I think we collected over a couple of hundreds songs!

There were also poems, and love notes.

With My Schatje

A walk back down memory lane.
