I have friends whom I haven't known her whereabouts for about two decades. I never have any single idea where to find her. she was a classmate when I was still in the grade school. Yesterday, it came as a surprise to me when I received an e-mail from her. She accidentally found my blog and left a message in my blog. I haven't heard and seen her for almost twenty years. She's now based in singapore and has been there for many years.

I have recently contacted some people I haven't seen in a long time including one of my cousins; the last time I saw him was around 20 years ago. I located him via facebook and I am so glad I did. He lives in Italy and I am in Australia. As I have no other family here aside from my parents and my sister, it is now to have someone to reminisce with about old times; I used to live in Italy until I was 10 years old and there are many things I still recall so I am happy to have someone to share with.

Hello DorisDay1971, Crocket here. I always wanted to visit Singapore and when my friends and I would go out for drinks we would have a Singapore Sling. And this is so wonderful for you to have found your friend again. Maybe you should look on your horroscope to see whether this was in the making and your stars for you. Congradulations my friend! Crocket.

Hello There! Good morning! One of my classmates way back when I was in elementary went to USA. I thought that he was still in Manila all the time. I just don't know how and where to contact him since they transferred location. We lost contact for so many years but after my college graduation, I was just surfing my friendster account when I tried to search for my school and I was so surprised to know that he was there. He is in USA now. I sent him a friendster message just for confirmationg. Fortunately, he replied and still recognizes me. From then on, we e-mail each other just for old time sake. I haven't seen him yet but hopefully when he visits here in Manila this year. It is really good to talk with old friends and reminisce the past. Thank you for the discussion. Happy Mylotting and Have a great day! Cheers!

Goodness, do I ever! I have two dear friends that live several states away from me. We began a friendship through Melaleuca. It started when they sent out a simple email I think to either buy products, or to do the business. I was going through a divorce at the time and, like now, was anxious to try something to make some money. Over the last nearly 7 years we have shared much through IM's, email, and phone. Numerous times we had hoped to meet, but it never worked out. I am hoping that with all my heart it will happen this year. In fact, I have a set vision of seeing them as I walk off the plan runway, and imagine that I can see them smiling and waiting for me. They are shorter than I am so I am hoping when this actually happens that they wont be lost in the possibly taller crowd. LOL

There was one kid I grew up with who is living somewhere in the Detroit area. We have not seen each other since '85. Don't know much about him now. Except he either was or is a bank manager now. He now wears glasses. He was in a band for a few years back in the 90s. And one this band's songs was featured in a movie. He played bass for them.

Wow! Thats a nice surprise. Yeah i have a friend like that, I contacted her a few months ago on facebook. It was nice to talk to her again. Plus my best friend and i dont talk for months bc we're so busy and caught up with our own lives, but once we start talking its like we never stopped. I love her for that.

What a nice surprise do you call grade school aged five to eleven ,we call that infant and primary school.I have often wondered about this.I expect you two will have a lot to talk about after all those years.Now thanks to the internet you can keep in contact.I have never moved far away from the area I have grown up in so we all still see one another but it is nice to hear from old friends and catch up.

I do have a lot of friends who I've lost contact with. I have no idea where are they now and only managed to keep in touch with few of them. This world is big, and it's not easy to find them all but it's funny that whenever we think this world is big, it'll try to prove to you that it's actually pretty small. I've actually encountered some old friends during my vacation halfway across the globe.
