A Different Kind Of Love

Last Sunday, after church, The Fiancé and I went up to Tanjung Bungah for a simple choo char lunch that consisted of Belacan Fried Chicken, Leong Wong Tan, and Mixed Vege Soup. But unlike the many other times before, that Sunday, the cook was very heavy-handed with his garlic. And me and garlic? We don't go very well together. (They tend to give me fevers when consumed in high-ish doses.) So... The Fiancé took one look and immediately said, "Wait." He then pushed all the garlic on the Leong Wong Tan aside for me before adding, "Be careful. Don't eat. Garlic makes you sick."

Garlic bits pushed to one side and safely out of my reach.

*heart melts*

He doesn't really buy me flowers, doesn't bring me for fancy dress-up dinners, or shower me with lots of PDA. But he makes up for it in other ways. Like doing his best to make sure that I am always kept out of harm's way. Even with the little things. Like too much garlic. So, yes. I tell myself that he cares. And he loves me. In ways few women like myself appreciate. Because his love rarely comes in the form of lavish or romantic gestures. No, my fiancé is a practical man. But practicality isn't always a woman's forte. So, I learn. To pay attention to the things he does instead of the things he says. And I learn to read and understand his language of love that doesn't come in the form of sentences of words.

Yerrr PDA damn messed up one lorh.

Some girls will want their bfs to PDA just to demonstrate possession pfft.

Still learning how to be the perfect bf wtf.

Pam Song said...

ATTN: 陳一豪
– No leh. "Healthy" PDA is about the couple behaving "normally" in the presence of others instead of holding back and being afraid to express their love for each other in public. It's not about other ppl, about making a stand, or about demonstrating any from of possession. That wan salah motive liao! It's about being ok with being yourself around your partner even when there are other people watching!

- Hahaha. It's actually not very aww if you were there watching us have lunch. But yeah, in hindsight, it's kinda aww. =p

陳一豪 said...

Ahhh ok that I can (behaving normally, holding hands and not acting like a prude) but sometimes you observe people damn menjijikan lah wtf.

Pam Song said...

ATTN: 陳一豪
– Ya lah. Not asking you to makeout in public. Hahaha. That wan too much liao la. But I dun see anything wrong with holding hands or even a peck on the forehead. Just dun go overboard lor. That wan really jijik lah. Hahaha. I got friends who just started dating who cannot keep their hands off each other. See also geli. Eat also eat with one hand cos another hand busy. Haih.

陳一豪 said...
