In love...listen with the heart.

Last night was a beautiful night when we witnessed two love birds met the first time. On Ah Fei's birthday, he invited Wati and some friends to a simple dinner. Both Ah Fei and Wati are my friends. Ah Fei is a simple jovial man and Wati is a sweet loving lady. It was three months ago Wati requested a favour to recommend and introduce an ideal boyfriend to her. I know it wasn't an easy task because an ideal person doesn't come easy. In my mind, Ah Fei could be the ideal man but there might be many obstacles to match them together.

Most couples fall in love by sight first, they believe seeing face to face is important, and they are too eager to meet by the first knowing. The traditional couples put their fate with their parents who decide their matching. They trust their parents are wiser to pick and select their ideal partner for live. I favour the second choice, as the eyes could be deceiving, whereas the ears to listen is even more powerful.

The two love birds were chatting on phone for two month, they did not know how each look like. They used their senses on listening and hearing to imagine each other. They were having fun, laughter and stories telling to amuse themselves. They could talk till the late night without getting bored. They began to like and care more for each other. They had feeling in their heart. Though they had not met yet but they had already accepted themselves willingly as good friends. On the night yesterday, when they both met, Wati and friends who accompanied her laughed endlessly upon seeing Ah Fei. Reason... Ah Fei who is only 36 is a bald headed young man. However Wati wasn't the least be bother about the hairless man because she sees the beauty of her man from the heart and not with the face. The dinner ended beautifully and i was told later they continued to chat again from their home on phone until the early morning. I wish them best of luck. Yes! Listening is better than judging by sighting alone.
