How We Met

Sebenarnya, I dread to write about this. Our "how-we-met" love story bukanlah sesuatu yang romantik, ala-ala coffee-shop-bump-love-blossoms bullshit. Nor it blossomed from corny-pick-up-lines-dalam-club.

If you were to ask me the same question a few years ago, mesti takkan dapat jawapan. I mean why does it really matter kan? Macam mana jumpa, kat mana jumpa, masa jumpa tu pakai baju kaler apa, tengah makan apa. Who the hell cares lah.

Eh, tiba-tiba teremo pulak si gedik ni.

Anyway, macam mana nak start cerita ah? Haha..

Flashback kejap ya.



I was a miserable young woman. Lonely and miserable. Rejections was the norm for me. Lelaki mana yang nak perempuan gemok, hitam dan pendek. Tak cukup dengan cela itu, muka berjerawat batu pulak tu.

Self-esteem jangan cakap lah. WHAT self-esteem? Haha. I kept on comparing myself with my circle of friends. Macam langit dan bumi. Cuma aku lagi teruk kot, bukan bumi lagi, dah macam telaga dengan kedalaman 40 kaki kot.

I hated all my years in high school. I was surrounded with pretentious people, dan walaupon I was never kena bullied depan-depan, but kenalah jugak semburan kata-kata sindir dari school mates.

5 years of semburan kata-kata sindir were more than enough to kill my confidence. Though di luaran I seemed like I didn't care, but di dalam, I was ready to break.

Did you know my old crush rejected me lepas dia jumpa aku? Eh, itu cerita lain.

I know all these seem so...exaggerated, but trust me, I shall provide a picture nanti. I'll scan it later lah. Sekarang malas gilakkk. Haha..

So anyway, I 'met' him online when I was 17, JUST got out from school. Yes my dearies, I met him online. Yang kelakarnya, he LOATHES chatting/chat rooms, and he was only there because of his friends. Dan kebetulan I wanted to try chatting, kira itu first time aku chat lah tu. We were there in the same room, at the same time.

Agaknya dah tertulis kot.

"SI ALIA AKAN BERTEMU DENGAN SI DON DI ALAM VIRTUAL PADA HARI SEKIAN DAN WAKTU SEKIAN SEKIAN"

Haha...

Eh memandai je aku.


He wasn't much of a chat-person. Kalau chat dengan dia, adalah 2-3 patah perkataan je dia type. Gila bosan mat ni. Haha. Dia teramatlah mysterious. And that made me very curious. Walaupon orang cakap "curiosity killed the cat", tapi dalam case ini, "curiosity membuatkan si kucing itu menjadi gemok sebab terlalu banyak love" (haha, proverb hentam sendiri). Eh paham-paham sendiri lah.

His actions (or not-so-much-action) intrigued me. Lagi dia type sepatah, 10 patah aku tanya.

I guess that worked lah kan.

Eh tapi jangan lah blame aku kalau korang buat macam tu then lelaki tu tetiba cakap "I'm busy can you not bother me anymore??". Hahaha...



(I asked him a few years ago, kenapa he acted as if he didn't want to chat with me. Ye lah, cara dia chat dengan aku macam he was annoyed je kan, then he said "Because I knew you were curious about me, and I knew you weren't gonna stop chatting with me. I also knw that women LOVE mysteries".

Hahahah...Cara dia cakap "women love mysteries" tu ada bunyi berunsurkan mengeji. Dalam kata lain, perempuan ni busybody betul lah. Sebok je nak tau kan. Hahahaha...)



So berbalik kepada kisah lama, he remained sebagai "special" chat-buddybuddy sahaja and plus, I didn't know what he looks like. Neither did he know rupa aku macam mana.

For the longest time, I didn't want him to know how I looked like. Almaklumlah, kalau lelaki Malaysia pon jijik tengok muka aku, apatah lagi orang luar kan. Takut dia fikir "Eww, you're nothing compared to all these American girls over here". 

Masa tu manalah mak tau yang orang Amerikah ni lagi hodoh dari muka mak niii. Selalu tengok orang Hollywood lawa-lawa jeee. Hahahahah...

Anyway, it was never a problem for me. Tak tau muka dia macam mana pon tak kisah. Tapi kalau dah hari-hari chat (he started to open up, thank God, kalau tak boleh mati kebosanan kot!), so feelings meelings pon started to develop la kannn.

We started to use voice chat jugak masa tu. Masa first time dengar suara dia,, boleh tak aku ingat dia guna machine voice changer tu. Hahah...rupa-rupanya memang suara dia garau..hahahah. Oopssss. I beri the sori.

Can you imagine how strong his words were, sampai boleh jatuh cintan with a faceless person.

Sampailah tahap di mana I couldn't handle it anymore, I really wanted to see the face behind the words. Its been about 2 years lah communicating tanpa muka. Mula-mula takut makkk, buatnya si Don ni berat 4 kali ganda berat aku, perut berlipat 8, berbulu dada kerinting, rambut kerinting berminyak. Urghh, macam-macam aku fikir ok.

Tapi tak pe, kuatkan hati jugak, siap cakap kat diri sendiri "tak kisah lah rupa dia macam mana, yang pentingnya, I fell in love with the man behind the screen, I fell for HE HIMSELF, bukannya setakat tangkap cintan sebab gambar ala-ala Brad Pitt ke apa".

Berkali-kali lafaz ayat tu kat diri sendiri. Haha...punyalah kental.

Oih, takut lah weh. Sekali dapat pakcik pedophile umur 54 tahun gatal ke apa macam mana?! Gila kau, boleh automatically jadi kurus aku sebab terkejut sangat kalau macam tu. Lemak semua cair..haha

I did ask him for a picture (setelah semangat kental built up). Dia sanggup keluar beli webcam!! And he sent me THIS picture!!



Ya Rabbi, hati luruh!! COMEL GILA PAKCIK NI!!
(ok, leave him alone lah, he was 17, of course muka budak)


And he even bought and posted A WEBCAM FOR ME TOO. Like snail-mail? I mean I understand lah, dia dah kasi gambar dia, now it's my turn lah kan. But haha, I refused. I lied to him yang I didn't get his mail, yang his mail was lost somewhere. Gila teruk. Padahal aku dah bedal guna tangkap gambar sendiri (dan adik-adik). Haha.

That lie only lasted for about a few months (eh, lama jugak tau!), until he finally found a picture of me online.

WAHHHH!!!

Menangis tak berlagu!! Masa dia tanya "Do you have short hair?", hati dah berhenti berdegup. Crap.

Habislah aku. Putus lah communication aku dengan dia lepas ni.

Dalam otak dah fikir macam-macam. Sekali lagi cintaakuu tidak berjawabbb. I thought I could make him fall for the REAL ALIA dulu sebelum dia tengok rupa aku. Sedih sangat masa tu, sampai dah tak boleh nak menangis.

Masa nak jawab "Yes" pon terketar-ketar.

I expected him to say "Oh." dengan nada disappointed, or "OMG U IS UGLY" straight forward gilos.

Instead, he said "I knew it. You look exactly how I imagined you to be!"

Eh? Excuse me? Betul kah apa yang aku dengar ni?

He actually LIKED/S the way I look?? WAHHHH MAKCIK HAPPY UOLLS!!

Tapi masa tu macam tak percaya lagi, I mean biar betul? Tak pernah orang complimented on how I look like before, so I demanded to see the picture. Wah, betul mekkk, it was a picture of meeeee! Hahahaha (eh, tapi bukan guna webcam yang dia kasi tu, ni gambar guna mobile phone - sorry, dah hilang gambar tu)

Sebenarnya, before he found my picture, dia pon tak kisah rupa aku macam mana, because he fell in love with ME, and not from my looks. Oh, so selama ni, aku bukan bertepuk sebelah tangan lah. Hehehe. Ni according to him ye. Ni bukan ayat angkat bakul.

I personally think it's better lah, I mean you get to know someone first, without having their looks jadi pemberat whether you should reject them or not. But of course it takes a lot of trust, and guts, and semangat kental. Ye lah, what if the person doesn't look like how you imagine them to be. Mesti lah sikit-sikit tu ada impact jugak. But if you truly love him/her, and you really don't care how he/she turns to look like, then no biggie lah kan.

Macam my case, I was willing to accept him dengan seadanya, tapi alhamdulillah, mata aku sedap memandang.

Dan sejak itu, we have nothing more to hide, nothing to be embarrassed about, and we both know we can count on each other for whatever reason. Oleh sebab itu lah, our love berputik mekar...Wahahah...geli tak baca?

Just because we've only met in person last year (when he came to Malaysia), people always assume yang our relationship cuma "cinta monyet", yang he really doesn't love me, yang we would never go far, yang we've only known each other for a small amount of time.

Yes true, we've only been together (physically) for less than a year kalau kira both of our visits to both countries. But did you know that we've been together for 8 years (albeit virtual)? During the first 7 years, since we couldn't go out on a proper date, all we did was talk. And we talked (and still do) for every minute for everyday. Celik mata sampai tutup mata.

We connect on a HIGHER level than the rest of these couples around my age do. So who are YOU to judge that my relationship is bogus? How would you justify his 'ungenuine' love when he's been THERE FOR ME for every goddamn second for 8 goddamn years? IF he was just playing me, why would he waste his time THAT long for someone who's just OVER THE INTERNET? He could have gotten a vajayjay somewhere closer to his house.

I'm sorry, I'm just tired of hearing people saying shit like that just because we met in an unorthodox way. He is by far the most honest man I've known. Apa kau ingat orang yang kau jumpa in real life tepi club tu jujur sangat?

So yeah. That's my love story. 7 years of being apart from each other (including the 2-faceless-years), never been on a proper date, never seen each other in person, never touched, never being in the same room physically. 7 years together virtually. 7 years of long distance relationship. And he finally came to see me end of last year (and I visited him this year).

And oh, our first REAL date was at A&W Subang Jaya.

So who says LDR doesn't actually work? If you've met the right person, nothing can be a factor.


THE END.


Anyway, since the 12th of Dec hari tu was Don's 25th birthday, I'm going to dedicate this whole post for him...walaupon dia takkan paham apa aku merepek atas tadi kan..hahahaha. 



Don W. Miller II, from the first year I've seen him until now..*insert cheesy romantic music*

nana said...

Hey alia! I too have been a silent reader of yours, tapi dari jauh I've always admired your courage and tak-kesahness and blunt honesty. And you know what, I think it is really sweet that you both found each other, and it is probably written in heaven that you are meant to be together. Selamat Maju Jaya! Hope you guys have a great relationship forever and ever!

Siti Fatimah said...

Hi.. sy ni silent reader you.. ehehe

bila sy bc post u kali ni. sy terkenang masa sy had my own LDR... sy rase sedih sbb sy tak mampu pertahankan LDR sy... masa tu sy pikir....100% imposible..takde hala tuju... bkn lah nk kata sy menyesal...tp sy ase alia msti paham perasaan sy.....org kata tak logik semua...tp kita yg rasa...bkn diorg kn....

and mmg btol...wpn kita jauh...tp kita lg byk sharing thoughts dlm LDR...because we have no other choise kn... tp bende tu mmg sy rindu sgt2.....dan memang sy akui..susah sy nk dpt sharing thoughts dgn partner sy skang...wpn hari2 jmpa..hari2 tgk muka......

sy jd terharu dgn post alia ni...sbb sy tau...time2 jauh cmni la ase pressure sgt...dh la jauh..pstu org sekeliling pandang sini ckp mcm2.....sy paham perasaan tu..sy harap alia bertabah la ek...

moga2 Allah dgr doa alia dan akan pertemukan alia dgn dia in a real world. build family together.......sy doakan...wpn sy tak dpt kecapi tu suma..tp sy harap alia dpt kecapi...ekekeke..

lg 1...org mesia mmg sgt skeptikal kalu pompuan mesia dgn foreigner..kebanyakkan nya mmg cmtu...huhuhuhuhu

Faressa said...

takde apa yg boleh aku cakap melainkan mendoakan kebahagian korang berdua.cepat2 la kahwin then takyah pisah jauh lagi.

hope kau tabah mengharungi cinta antara benua nie.ewahhh..

but ya, Don cute tahap hsdfkhsuifhwof <-- ayat pujian dalam bahasa itali.heh

Tak Lawak said...

cute je tgk gmbr to..

Penari.Gendut said...

Zeozir,
Tu lah kan, dulu mula-mula mmg terasa lah jugak. I mean who are they to judge us kan? Tapi now, telinga dah lali. Like u said, to hell with them! Haha!

Peej,
Thankssss! I wish u'd find your own happiness jugak! Amin!

Choojannar,
Yaaahh, baru jumpa face to face last year. Sebab tu masa first time jumpa, mmg tak kekok langsung, because we've known each other LONGER than that kan.

Bitter Sweet,
Terima kasih akak! Don senyum senget, perasan tak? Hahaha..eh tetiba.

Nana,
Thanks Nana! Kiranya my love story ni boleh cerita kat anak cucu nanti la ye? "Opah dulu jumpa atok kamu dalam chat room..." hahahahaha...wah, canggihnya opah ni. hahah

Siti Fatimah,
Yesss, saya faham sangat! Mmg orang kata "takkkan kemana" tapi itu diorg fikir, they're not in our shoes kan. Kita yg lagi tau.

Erina Asmawani,
Wah! Congratsss! 4 tahun dah! I baca your comment pon terus tersengih sensorang, cause I know exactly how you feel!

Nanie,
Weh kau tau, masa kat US hari tu, aku tak habis habis bagitau family dia yg pasal kitaorg kena tukar seluar tapi tak muat then he had to pakai seluar pinjam macam seluar sarkas tu! Hahaha! Kau lah yg kerja, bila je kau free?

aNnAsUeJie,
HAHAh! YOU should see us for real! LAGI bercanggah! Sorang hitam, sorang putih. Sorang gemok, sorang kurus. Sorang tinggi, sorang pendek. Sorang hidung penyet bulat, sorang hidung tinggi straight. Hahahaha

Shasha,
Thankkksss!! Eh tanjoubi omekejadah tu apa? Adakah ia bermaksud "Mr Don you're so lucky to have Alia because she's super awesome and super sweet and super lawa"??? HAHAHAHAH...ok ok kidding. Happy birthday yah?

Astrhea,
Kan? It doesn't matter what she/he looks like, sebab kalau dah suka, you love orang tu for he himself/her herself. Kalau yang takat paras rupa memainkan peranan penting..itu bukan "love" lah. Itu Infatuation/lust.

Faressa,
Yeah, LDR works if you have a mutual agreement lah kiranya, you trust each other. Sebab trust for me is the foundation of the relationship. Yeah, 8 years..haha, bayangkan kalau kitaorg kawin 8 tahun yang lalu...mesti dah ada anak umur 7 tahun..wahaha, gerun pulak bila fikir.

Nadya,
Eh ada ke cerita novel mcm ni?? Hahahah. YAY! You know what, bila I baca pasal kisah cinta orang yang sama macam mine, hati pon melonjak gembira! Seriously! Excited lebih lebih! Maybe because I know the feeling masa heart tengah flutter tapi tak boleh nak sentuh (for some time).

-eLyNhere-
Thanksss! Inshallah...kisah love story saya akan di ceritakan ke anak cucuuuuu.

Rhia,
Kalau dah 8 tahun cinta antara benua...kira I can call myself as an expert dalam LDR la kan!?? Hahahahah...eh puji diri sendiri. Yay! gjfekjej Rhia! <--bermaksud terima kasih dalam bahasa Kazakhstan pulak. Hahah...

Azreen Sulaiman said...

honestly, I've been wondering about you and Don too, cause when I first started reading your blog he was already around ^_^ anyway, i'm sooooo happy for the both of you and as a fellow long-term ldr, screw everyone who says they understand, bla bla bla without being in the same state! huhu. saying it's not easy is most definitely an understatement, but if it's meant to be, then it will be! ^_^

i wish don and you lots and lots of love forever x infinity! haha, berganda2 tu!! ;P

The end is where u both die on the same day surrounded by your 12 grandchildren :D

Anyways, man my lovelife is a freaking mess atm. Nak ceta pun malas ler... All I know is that, you and Don are doing great and I need stories like yours to help me keep the faith that love actually exist and the world isn't out to screw me!

Love ya!

Penari.Gendut said...

Cals,
I'm all ears if you need someone to vent to you knowwww. Glad my (not so) love story can help you! Don't worry, just take things easyyy

Leechian said...

Hey... I'm not sure if you remember me but I've been following your posts as well. It's great to see someone in the same situation as me, although you're with Don for 4 years longer than I am. I'm finally with my fiance in NC (yes, we're in NC as well). It's awesome :) I hope you get your happy ending soon, sweetie. All the best!

Addy said...

Hie Alia!

I came over via my colleague, who is one of your readers. She told me about your blog because she knows about my relationship story, which is quite similar to yours. I'm glad I read your love story, because I think it's super sweet and incredible! :D I wish you guys all the best.

If you don't mind, I'd love to share my story too, albeit in a concise form... I am a Malaysian Chinese girl and I met my American boyfriend via a blogging site. We were friends for a year before we realized that we liked each other, and so we entered into a relationship in June 2009. In December 2009 he came over to visit me for the first time! We spent Christmas and New Year's together - it was awesome. He went back to the US last Thursday, but I'll be visiting him this March. We plan to get married this year :)

That's it! Thanks for letting me share!

Addy

Penari.Gendut said...

Leechian,

Hey girl! I do remember you! How's everything in NC now? HEy I'm planning to go to NC again later this year (once i have my visa of course), you should def. meet up! It'll be great to know another Malaysian in another country!

Anonymous (Yasmin),
Whaa? YOU REMEMBER ME?? WAH! SATU DISCOVERY! I don't remember much of my schooling days..I've erased everything of those dark days..hahah

Wanny,
Yah we are! To hell with them!

Anonymous (kak rina),
Thank you! Yeah..I don't hold back of what I think...semua main belasah je cakap..haha

Addy,
That's so sweet! Thank you for reading my blog and yes we ARE in the same predicament. It sucks having your partner who lives half across the world from you doesn't it? Not to mention all the legal procedures as well...

Anne Mustapha said...

hey alia...last nite i found ur blog...and honestly, i love reading everything about u... :) and for this post, i think n will pray for ur relationship to last long until both of u have cucu2 together-gether...hihi :D

P/S: U remind me of myself, seriously...

Cieri said...

"Cieri said: December 15, 2009 4:15 PM
OMG suwittttttt giler!!!!!"

roughly a year ago, I wrote the above comment. and now, I am too,in a LDR with a guy I met online.but not via chatting sites. I fell in love with him at his first hello and BEFORE I actually met him.

an hour after I met him face to face for the first time, he proposed to me.

Alia said...

Cieri,
OMG!!! THAT IS SOOOO SWEEEEETTTTTTTTTTTTTTTT!!!!!! Now you're getting married before me ha!! HAHAH!

lyadyana said...

super cool relationship!!

wannurzalia said...

hai alia..aku baru jumpe blog ni.
well..what more can I say..aku penah ada relationship macam ko before.
i was madly in love with the guy, tapi problem is this guy kept on denying his feelings..aku tak tahan lama2 (after two years) then I called it quits.
but, whatever it is, I'm wishing you and Don an eternal happiness..

Husnatul A'tiqah Abdul Hady said...

hye..i found your blog from someone that i've been followed for quite some time..

lyadyana,
Aww thanks deary! :D

wannurzali,
OHHH sungguh benci orang mcm tu...takder telo langsung! Hahaha! Guess you made the right choice lah, dari dok diam je, you get nothing with a man like that! Wait, he's not even a "man" pon kalau he doesn't have the guts to tell you!

Husnatul A'tiqah Abdul Hady,
Hehe, thank youu for reading blog yg saikosis ini! Haha..Yeah..8 years..tapi now going 9 years dah and still LDR jugak :( Tapi dah lali..haha. Thanks for your wishes ya! I really appreciate it!! But my "love journey" belum habis lagi..ntah bila nak kawen pon tak tau lagi...hahah

budak yg bosan said...

hi..baru jumpa ur blog today...terus baca plk post ni...

well..saye pun buruk gak...selalu fikir yg lelaki hanya akan suka perempuan cantik + kurus saje...

but ur post here really open my mind...

tq...btw...happy for u guys!!!

Alia said...

budak yg bosan,

I believe that each person has a soulmate, though I don't actually believe the myth of "soulmate".

Semua orang ada seseorang.

Memang kebanyakkan lelaki suka pompuan yg lawa+kurus je no doubt, tapi I don't believe outer beauty seseorang ialah factor penting utk dijadikan teman hidup.

There will come a time where laki tu akan fikir, he needs someone that he can grow old together.

Kalau dia tak terfikir lagi macam tu, that's not a man. Dia still belum hit puberty.

Anyhow, i'm so glad that my story made an impact (walaupon sikit) on you.

Remember,
CONFIDENCE = BEAUTY!

You can do it!
(wahaha, mcm nak masuk bertanding apakahhh haha)

I LOOOOVE YOUR LOVE STORYYY ;)

hopefully both of you kekal selamanya.

turisuna said...

Hi, this is my first time visiting your blog, and I like the way you write the articles, especially for this post. I can feel your wonderful personality, and no wonder if Don can be in love with you :)
But what make me surprised is how could you wait till 2 years without showing your face to a man you love, this is a hard thing to do and not many women can do that :)
I'm also in LDR, but I'm kind of inpatient woman, I already asked him open his cam at the first chat he3.
Well I know each woman has her own love story, and yours is great. I think your love journey can rise your self confident. You already pretty just the way you are :)
Good luck, and wish all the best for you :)

Nazihah said...

Hi Turisuna!
Thank you so much for your kind words! I really appreciate them!

I surprised myself too you know, I mean I fell in love with someone whom I have not met before..for 2 years! But I suppose this is what fate brought me to..and I'm sure fate is kind on you as well!

I wish you all the best in your LDR too!

Alia said...

Thank youu Nazihah! He treats me well, that's all I'm asking :)

Atot said...

salam alia,

i came across your blog by chance.
i know i'm very very late on this article, but hey...i just wanna give you a big hug. bukan senang mendapat seseorang yg terima kita seadanya. even among friends pun, there will be some kind of bitching.

apa pun, cherish what you have. all the best alia!!

lots of love....

Nur Qalby said...

Sweet macam cheese cake ^___^
LDR sangat mencabar..wuuu~ kita serupa, terpisah lain-lain benua tapi suke..FB, YM, Skype je tempat nak date :D

Wish u good luck..

Vy Nin said...

I read the whole post because it is an LDR!

:) Nice writings. Wish you all the best for your relationship.

Mine's an LDR too, 3years plus (still counting) reading yr stories makes me strong (in a way) for my relationship too.

Thanks Alia ♥

*wlpn post ni dh lama aku nk komen gak hahaha*

sgt suka entry ni! and apa yg u tulis tu sgt la betul..i ni pendek lg muka berjerawat, plus i kene sindir sbb kt dagu ada bulu2 halus yg ketara cm janggut (so at my upper lips)..tp kan i sgt bersyukur sbb pasangan i yg skg ni leh terima i seadanya alhamdulillah (we'll get married on this august insyaallah) and dia x kisah dgn segala cela di wajah ni..and he's my number 1 & only (i x penah ada couple)..

he found me in friendster (4 years ago) and he sent me a message into my inbox to ask if i'm single (x ke terkujat tetibe ada stranger hntr msg gitu..haha 1 first time aku kene)

he's physically too tall & i'm physically too short..haha pelik2..tp it's true, when u love somebody because of who he/she is, then ada apa dgn rupa fizikal dia :)

thumbs up to you alia! :)

Miss Loud.Selfish.Sensitive,Bitch.Blah.Blah said...

Hahaha kakak :) ni intan kawan Dhia.Gosh akak intan suka baca post ni,intan dh baca bnyak kali baca but rase cm nk komen la plk kali ni.Sb kan akak,intan harap sngt dpt jdi mcm akak ! Intan doa kan kebahagiaan dunia dan akhirat untuk akak and don :)

Alia said...

nurul,

I just went to your blog and that's is sooo sweet! you guys are married already!! I had an ex-bf tapi dia ni saikosis, naseb baik jugak la dia ni saikosis, kalau tak melepasss aku Don. Hahahahahah

Intan,

Huhhh! Noo don't be like me! I'm beautiful mess! (wahahahahaha matilerrrr pujik diri sendiri secara tidak langsung). Akak syukur apa dah jadi, tapi sebenarnya ada baanyaaaakk masalah menunggu. I have to leave my job, my friends and my family behind! It's a HUGE sacrifice and kita tak tau macam mana kehidupan kat sana (US) nanti. I have to start everything from scratch.

But if I were given the chance to go back in time and change my course, I don't think I would. :)
