A message from Tim
- Tuesday, 14 February 2012
Hi everyone! I guess not many people know who I am, so I’ll do a quick intro for y’all ^__^ My name is Tim, I am Lindy’s boyfriend. Seeing it’s Valentine’s Day I decided to write a lil post so u guys can understand a bit more of our love story (as cheesy as it sounds) ^__^
So how’d it all begin?
We must back track through time & go to the year 2003. I was preparing for my GCSE’s (UK national exam when you are around 16), at that time I had been with my ex-gf for around 7-8 months. Soon after my GCSE’s exams were finished, my ex-gf and I broke up (boo-hoo), as such I was pretty down. To help me get over her, my ex-gf introduced me to Lindy as a friend, from then on we started talking more & more. She introduced me to her group of friends & I started to hang around them more & eventually we started dating. I don’t remember actually asking Lindy, “would you be my girlfriend?” but it so happened that we both knew what the situation was & the rest is history.
The so called “BubzBeauty” that you all know through Youtube was not how Lindy used to look, dress, act, talk etc. Back then, “Bubz” was only a 16 year-old girl, going to school, preparing for exams just like everyone else. Hopefully she won’t kill me for putting these up:
We first started dating each other when we were both 16, you can say that Lindy is my childhood sweetheart & also one of my best friends who knows absolutely everything about me. When people hear of how long we’ve been together they always seem surprised because relationships that start as young as ours don’t really see it past a few months or even a year.
When we first started dating, we only got to see each other once a week…and that was only for a few hours max, in the town centre where we would grab some food with close friends, go shopping, or watch a movie. 2 years down the line, we both moved off to University. That again was another challenge as we both met a lot of new friends, even became house mates. After we both graduated from university the global financial crisis kicked in so job hunting in what we majored in wasn’t particularly easy. We both decided to move to Hong Kong based on instinct & a “nothing to lose” attitude.
Moving to an entirely different country wasn’t easy for either of us as we left behind our family & friends to make it on our own. After grinding out a hard year in Hong Kong, the relationship between Lindy & I became distant as we both didn’t have the same goals anymore. Inevitably, we actually broke up for around half a year; during this time our friendship was truly tested. We both never gave up keeping in contact with each other, even though we went our separate ways. During this separation period, we both got to realise how much we meant to one another. Soon after we began seeing the same goals in life & started dating again =)
We have now been in HK for 2 years, recently bought our own apartment, car & 2 gorgeous dogs. I sincerely hope my story with Lindy is a never-ending one because it’s so special to me. 2012 is the year to make things happen & I expect to move on to the next chapter of our life together.
Hopefully if my section on the website gets coded, I will be able to update you guys more on myself, so you know what kind of a guy “BubzBeauty” has settled for =) That along with the messy side of Lindy that stays hidden from the camera XD
Meeting you has been one of the biggest blessings of my life. Although I may not be the tallest, best-looking, best-built, or any of the artificial things one may look for in a boyfriend; I can guarantee you that no other will ever love you as much as I do. I want to spend the rest of my days looking after you, spoiling you, loving you. Till death do us apart Lindy Gei Yan Tsang, because you are my “otter” half & I will never give up on chasing after you. From my heart, to yours – Happy Valentines Day.
A reply to Tim,
I still remember years and years ago, when I was going through some tough times with my family. My family opposed us being together from comparing the backgrounds of our families. You snuck out to see me at crazy o'clock morning to cheer me up. When you saw me, my eyes were red and puffy from an entire day of crying. In fact, I remember hardly being able to open up my eyes lol. The first thing you said to me was "Aww, you're beautiful" and I never ever forgot that.
From the very first day we met, I knew we would be best friends. Today, you are still my best friend but what's even better is that you are now also my boyfriend. When we first met, I was an insecure teenage girl with lots of acne. I had wonky teeth and wore thick glasses. I got braces to fix up my teeth, contacts instead of glasses and piled lots of makeup on to disguise my pimply skin. I dressed in a way to look 'tougher' so nobody would hurt me because I was fragile inside. But you saw me as me. You didn't care about my appearance. You saw my heart and I saw yours.
I have so so much to thank you and I really don't know where to start. My family was eventually able to see what I saw in you. Now they constantly question "How will you ever manage without Tim?". Yep, they ADORE YOU! I want to thank you so much for making effort with my family and friends. Nobody treats their friends as well as you do. Your heart of gold inspires me everyday. I want to thank you for introducing me to Church. Do you still remember what was the first gift you gave me? Yep, a Precious Moments Bible. It's one of my most precious possessions from you. I know you feel a little drifted now but I know together, we will grow stronger spiritually in faith together.
You take care of me so well and I know I'm not the easiest person to handle but somehow - you always let me have my way. You always put me before yourself. When I'm down, you not only listen but you give the most incredible advice. You know me better than I know myself. You are the most selfless person I know.
Yep, I know you're not tall, most handsome or built (Hehe I always laugh when I imagine you working out =D). I don't need you to be. I'm not the tallest, prettiest or fittest either tehee. I like you juuust the way you are.
I like that you are knowledgable because you teach me things everyday. I like that you are silly because you do silly things that make me laugh. I like watching your face light up when you fix computers. I like observing your face when you perform calculations. I like your proud face when I enjoy your ramen noodles. I like the sound of your whistling. I like watching you play with Chubbi & Domo. I like everything about you. Even your flaws ^_^
I don't care what happens because I know I will be fine as long as I got you, Chubbi and Domo ^.^ I love you Bubba ^.~
(I'm going to kill you for revealing those pictures!!! How you still manage to have them after like 9 years is beyond me)
