the Best Goodbyes.









There are different kind of goodbyes.. the best goodbye is short, the most emotive are those you kept in your smile, the sweetest are those whom you don't know.

    I still remember the first time when we met.

    It was a Saturday night in 2003.

    I was looking forward to the meeting, but was also a little apprehensive that I was going to interview a celebrity... most of the people I have on my show are theatre artists who are generally very humble (they have to be! cos they need the publicity! hehe).

    But your names and pics were all over straits times and zaobao, and that seems to give you every right to act "dao".

    While I had deep admiration for someone so young and talented, I refrained from being too friendly. I had to conduct myself in a "professional" way... to act as if I had dealt with even more “tua pai” people than you. 

    "Hi! You’re here.” I paused. “So how do you feel today?" I enthused and gave you a firm handshake, but quickly avoided eye contact, to conceal my own nervousness.

    "I’m great! Just finished some editing today....it's my first time on Chinese radio. So please pardon my poor Mandarin." there was a slightly nervous yet generous smile on your face... revealing your trademark chipmunk teeth...

    That childlike grin on your face, that cheeky gleam in your eyes would light up from time to time.

    The interview proceeded smoothly, much better than I thought, and we were warming up to each other fast. And the truth is, I was easily won over by your passion, sincerity and guts.

    "Mandarin poor?! What rubbish! You're terrific!"

    "No lah, it's really quite bad. I don't know what I’m talking about." then you laughed abashedly.

    "Do you have any regrets in life?" I asked.

    "Nope. Even if I walked out your studio now and got run over by a car, I would gladly die without any regrets".

    "Why?"

    "I live every single day as if it were the last".

    Cliché it may sound, but it was the sparkle in your eyes that made the words special.

    From that moment I knew we were going to be very good friends.

    Thank you, Chiam.
    Thank you for being YOU. top
