Wendy Fan! Wendy Fan!

Last night just over 10 of us gathered at Bar333 to celebrate Wendy’s 23rd birthday. It was so nice to catch up with a few old friends, there’s nothing quite like the familiar faces and lame jokes - still funny 9 years later. It was kind of sad to see that a few of us were absent, but time, different Uni’s and work made it a bit hard to stay in touch.

For those who don’t already know her let me introduce you to my friend Wendy. Wendy and I have been friends since high school, from year 9 we were pretty much joined at the hip. We laughed together, shopped together, waited for the bus together, hung out on weekends and gossiped on the phone for hours on end. Looking back we even sported the same short hair cut – as friends do.

What I really liked most about being around Wendy was that she made high school fun! I was always the more cautious one, even a little bit serious at times, but her ditzy ness, humour and ability to know every single Asian person in Hurstville always managed to put a smile on my face. I really believe that Wendy played a bit part in shaping the person that I am today.

Time passed, we went to different Uni’s, studied different courses and worked at different places. We caught up here and there but not as much as we wanted to. Its funny how you blink and years pass without you even realising; when you do, you wonder what hit you.

We’re both a bit older and wiser (I hope) but deep down we’re still the same two girls who hung out at Hurstville library, ate chicken laksas at Dixon’s and wrote each others permission note to go shopping at Westfields.

Wendy Fan here is to a long friendship and all the good times. Happy Birthday!

Wendy, Me, Phyllis, Lisa

Nigel and Wendy...awww

Westie, the photo below is for you, you wouldn't believe who we ran into. I had to get Allan to pretend to take a photo of Jacky so it wouldn't look obvious that we were taking a pic of him. Click on the photo to enlarge and see if you recognise who it is.
