A blog to an ugly mug

Hey ugly mug,
I just booked a week long holiday today. I plan to go to El Nido, where I will spend 7 days getting a PADI open water dive certification and also snorkelling and chilling out in the place. I haven't told you this yet because t's been a few days since we last messaged each other.
But I'm getting ahead of myself.
I remember when I first met you. It was a sunny day in Nha Trang, Vietnam. I was having lunch at a restaurant and you were eating your fruits. After spending half a day by myself, I thought I was gonna go bonkers and wanted to meet new people and you seemed nice enough.
And so I made up a story that I wanted to get the map you had in your table so I could have a reason to chat with you. After that, we spent half a day hanging out at the beach and walked around town and it was nice.
Before I ramble on any further, I might as well get to the point.
Very rarely do I open up to anyone but when I do, it means a lot.
So for this post, I just want you to know...
Thank you...
For inspiring me to conquer my fears.
For making me realize that I can swim and should not be that dependent on a life vest, even if the water is too deep.
For reminding me that I travelled alone to other places and so shouldn't really be nervous about doing so again and again.
For making me want to learn how to dive.
For pushing me to my limits.
For making me ride a motorbike, albeit as a passenger.
For swimming with the whale sharks with me and calmed me down when I panicked.
For believing I could do the silly things I've said above.
For being an amazing travel buddy.
For putting up with me and my mood swings.
For making me a better person as a whole when I experienced the above.
For putting up with me.
I couldn't forget the places we've been to, my favourite being Siquijor, but all of them memorable. And even if you might one day realize that you don't want to keep in touch anymore, just know you have touched my life in a lot of ways you might not know and I'm glad to have met you.
Feeling soppy, cheesy and embarassed,
