Remember that Chemistry lab lesson you had back in school, when we had to deal with chemicals and measuring them in exact quantities using a measuring cylinder at eye level so as to remove parallax error? When was the last time you measured or quantified something? What was it? Usually, it's something tangible, but what if it's intangible? Like love? If it's love, do you quantify it in terms of the number of years or simply judging from which stage you're at already?
Well, today's story is not so much about the parallax error but it's more of the idea of measurement and partly related to school, because that's where I met both Eileen and Samuel. That's besides the point but most importantly, school was the place where love between Eileen and Samuel blossomed, from being classmates to friends and finally lovers. Knowing them both for more than 9 years already, it was weird at first to see two individuals with such different personalities, becoming one. Samuel was the calm, quiet and usually expressionless chap whereas Eileen was bubbly, chatty and always filled with smiles on her face. I guess opposites do attract afterall.
To Samuel, Eileen has become "such an immeasurable part of his life that he could no longer remember what life was without her". To everyone who knows Samuel, I'm sure you'll agree that this is the first time you hear something like that from him. To Eileen, I'm sure you feel the same way too. By the look on Samuel's face when Eileen said yes, I think love is really just immeasurable for the both of them, just like how you cannot put a value to the happiness on their faces - immeasurable, priceless.
Let us all look forward to their wedding day on 20 September 2014.
